Excellent look at the spiritual guide of Obama’s. Someone he has refused to separate himself from. He will only say he disagrees with him.
In fact Obama has said he felt at home in this ugly, hateful preachers church.
The sign stayed until the end of apartheid, – long enough to catch the eye of a young Barack Obama, who visited the church in 1985 as a community activist. Obama, was not a churchgoer at the time, but he found himself returning to the sanctuary of Trinity United. In Wright he had found both a spiritual mentor and a role model…
Obama says that rather than advising him on strategy, Wright helps keep his priorities straight and his moral compass calibrated.
In his 1993 memoir “Dreams from My Father,” Obama recounts in vivid detail his first meeting with Wright in 1985. The pastor warned the community activist that getting involved with Trinity might turn off other black clergy because of the church’s radical reputation.
When Obama sought his own church community, he felt increasingly at home at Trinity…
Later he would base his 2004 keynote speech to the Democratic National Convention on a Wright sermon called “Audacity to Hope,” –also the inspiration for Obama’s second memoir, “The Audacity of Hope.”
Remember…he CHOSE this church. What kind of man chooses this hateful church and then expects all of us to overlook it? Or to overlook his own reaction to the hate speech directed at our country:
“I don’t think my church is actually particularly controversial.” He said Rev. Wright “is like an old uncle who says things I don’t always agree with,” telling a Jewish group that everyone has someone like that in their family.
You don’t choose your family Obama. Your born into it.
You CHOSE this church, you have said it feels like home.
In this segment of GMA today a advisor to Obama complains that people are not vetting Hillarys or McCains pastors. I’m sure they will but lets imagine that McCain’s pastor HAD said these sort of ignorant statements. Does anyone really believe the left and the MSM wouldn’t be calling for his head? If McCain’s pastor was a racist, like Wright is, there is no way in hell that he even gets close to the nomination.
Roger Simon is appalled:
It’s not funny. Barack is running for President of the United States. As a former civil rights worker, I find it pretty appalling. Was this what we were fight for? Forget the primaries, in the general election this video is going to be all over the airwaves and the internet. It could do for Obama what Willie Horton did for Dukakis…. But unlike the Willie Horton ad, Obama will deserve this. Horton was a mistake by Dukakis that any of us could have made. Jeremiah Wright was Obama’s personal choice for years. And let’s not even get into Barack giving Farrakhan the honorific of “Minister” in the recent debate…
As he should be. This was no mistake, this was a choice Obama made on who to associate with, as was Rezko, and judging by those choices it’s clear the man shouldn’t be within 100 miles of the White House let alone inside the Oval Office.
Soon, soon my characterization of Barack as a dangerous cult leader will become mainstream!
holy crap. the dude said that?
The Church of Blackorama?
He is responsible for the title of Barack Hussein Obama’s Book “The Audacity of Hope”. This of course, was the second choice. The first was “Die White Debbil, Die”. 😉
They do have a good praise and worship band at the Church Of the True Black Jeebus
Let him keep talking and spewing his hatred of America, whitey and the jooooos. That osama/obama looks to this racist’s scumbag for “spiritual” guidance pretty much says it all. osama/obama’s wife and this pathetic excuse for a “man of God” are going to single handedly sink the hopey mcchangie ship of lies. I hope mcvain’s camp is keeping good records of all this hatred. Makes you rethink the whole osama/obama not putting his hand over his heart during the National Anthem and not wearing the Flag pin issue. Perhaps his excuses for that lack of patriotism where just that excuses. After all his wife hasn’t ever been proud of being an American and now his “spiritual advisor” is damning America. Yup, this is someone we want as President of the United States (sarcasm off).
this is really scarey. i cannot believe they still let this guy run around screaming this hate. he is manic in his rantings. and obama is alighned with him, that is even freakier. he should not be president.
Not only is he allowed to run around screeching his horse s**t, thousands attend his mass every Sunday to listen. I get the feeling alot of them didn’t go very far in school and depend on a mad man on a pulpit to tell them what’s up with the world. Obama’s reasons for listening are far more sinister- he received enough schooling to know it was horse s**t. He saw the multitude of the ignorant as potential votes instead of misled fools needing an education.
And now that the Democratic party is on the verge of nominating this guy, the MSM is finally starting to do its job. Too late though, the Obama train has left the station and has a full head of steam. Any derailment now- blacks would stay home and McCain would have a victory in November that would rival Reagan’s over Mondale.
Using the pulpit for political purposes is par for the course on the liberal left.
I wonder what Philadelphia Steve thinks of this REAL hate speech??
Oh, all particularly intense Christians are vaguely creepy, whatever their persuasion.
Particularly intense Christians don’t murder and kill like particularly intense secularists do (Mao, Pol Pot, Stalin) or particularly intense Islamic fanatics (OBL, Zarqawi, Zawahiri).
Particularly intense Christians I know risk their lives to bring hope to the poor in war torn countries, give up their lives of luxury to help the broken hearts in Cambodia or Vietnam, and routinely use their talents (as doctors or nurses) to bring medical care to women and children in Africa. These are actual people from my church, all particularly intense, and all doing something to make the world a better place.
What have you, Mr. Washboard, done lately?
What have you, Mr. Washboard, done lately?
What on earth has this got to do with anything?
Typical leftist diversion — you claimed that “particularly intense” Christians are creepy…no?
Yes; I said “vaguely creepy.” I didn’t say “terrifyingly psychopathic.” Whatever good works your friends do, if they’re intense Christians, I’d likely find them vaguely creepy.
People can be vaguely creepy without being murderous sociopaths.
I see your “typical leftist diversion” and raise you one “wingnut non-sequitur-spewing meme-bot.”
If my pastor came out with racist BS like the not so right Reverand Wright, I’d stop going and cease supporting. The fact that Obamamama Hussein keeps going to a racist, hateful church speaks volumes to what he truly believes. The audacity of hate.
I don’t watch much ‘news’ anymore so I may have missed the info I’m looking for. I’d like to know if Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Charlie Rangle have endorsed Hussein O. Anybody know?
Better hot, and intense for my Lord, my Saviour, than lukewarm and filled with the hate that permeates the cockles of this man’s heart for his fellow man. . . . . If it were possible, he might fool the very elect. . . .
