**Check out the update below**

I like Allah’s take on Obama’s damage control speech today the best:

Not so much “if it offends you, I condemn it!” as “if it offends you, you’re standing in the way of progress!”

Yeah, yeah….he is just now offended by the hate speech from Wright. Nevermind the 20 plus years he attended the church, hell, in his book he even mentions some of the same talking points that the hatemonger spoke about in the videos:

And so it went, a meditation on a fallen world. While the boys next to me doodled on their church bulletin, Reverend Wright spoke of Sharpsville and Hiroshima, the callousness of policy makers in the White House and in the State House. As the sermon unfolded, though, the stories of strife became more prosaic, the pain more immediate. The reverend spoke of the hardship that the congregation would face tomorrow, the pain of those far from the mountaintop, worrying about paying the light bill…

In interviews since the hatemongers speechs became big news Obama has done much twisting, and lots of Clintonian doublespeak, but no fixing. He first tells us that the MSM is just cherry-picking quotes. So what? Post 9/11 and he is telling his congregation we deserved it, that we invented HIV to kill the black man, and so on. Thats not enough to get upset about?

It gets better:

It’s a congregation that does not merely preach social justice but acts it out each day, through ministries ranging from housing the homeless to reaching out to those with HIV/AIDS.

Well, why not? The white man invented HIV so I would think he would make this a top priority.

The worst was this one tho:

But because Rev. Wright was on the verge of retirement, and because of my strong links to the Trinity faith community, where I married my wife and where my daughters were baptized, I did not think it appropriate to leave the church.

So, he now says he was aware all along how hateful this guy was but he was just waiting him out until retirement. Whoakay….

Knowing this kind of hate was being thrown around and he had no second thoughts about bringing his kids to be baptized by the man….that speaks volumes in my opinion. But hold your horses, now he tells us that he never heard the hate speak.

The statements that Rev. Wright made that are the cause of this controversy were not statements I personally heard him preach while I sat in the pews of Trinity or heard him utter in private conversation.

In his own book he writes about a few of his sermons that sound suspiciously like a few we have seen on YouTube recently and now we’re supposed to believe he never heard this stuff from him before. So why would he even think about leaving that church? You know, that church he felt he couldn’t leave because his kids and wife had ties there?

Lots of Clintonian speak going on here from his campaign.

UPDATE – 03/16/08 0100hrs PST

Shocker! From a August article at Newsmax:

Presidential candidate Barack Obama preaches on the campaign trail that America needs a new consensus based on faith and bipartisanship, yet he continues to attend a controversial Chicago church whose pastor routinely refers to “white arrogance” and “the United States of White America.”

In fact, Obama was in attendance at the church when these statements were made on July 22.


A visit to Wright’s Trinity United is anything but Oprah-style friendly.

As I approached the entrance of the church before a recent Sunday service, a large young man in an expensive suit stepped out to block the doorway.

“What are you doing here?” he asked.

“I came to hear Dr. Wright,” I replied.

After an uncomfortable pause, the gentleman stepped aside.

On this particular July Sabbath morning, only a handful of white men — aside from a few members of Obama’s Secret Service detail — were present among a congregation of approximately 2,500 people.

The floral arrangements were extravagant. Wright, his associate pastors, choir members, and many of the gentlemen in the congregation were attired in traditional African dashiki robes. African drums accompanied the organist.

Trinity United bears the motto “Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian.”

Wright says its doctrine reflects black liberation theology, which views the Bible in part as a record of the struggles of “people of color” against oppression.

A skilled and fiery orator, Wright’s interpretation of the Scriptures has been described as “Afrocentric.”

When referring to the Romans, for example, he refers to “European oppression” — not addressing the fact that the Egyptians, who were also a slave society, were people of Africa.

The Trinity United Web site tells of a “commitment to the black community, commitment to the black family, adherence to the black work ethic, pledge to make all the fruits of developing acquired skills available to the black community.”


Wright’s strong sentiments were echoed in the Sunday morning service attended by NewsMax.

Wright laced into America’s establishment, blaming the “white arrogance” of America’s Caucasian majority for the woes of the world, especially the oppression suffered by blacks. To underscore the point he refers to the country as the “United States of White America.” Many in the congregation, including Obama, nodded in apparent agreement as these statements were made.

The sermon also addressed the Iraq war, a frequent area of Wright’s fulminations.

“Young African-American men,” Wright thundered, were “dying for nothing.” The “illegal war,” he shouted, was “based on Bush’s lies” and is being “fought for oil money.”

In a sermon filled with profanity, Wright also blamed the war on “Bush administration bulls–t.”

Those are the types of statements that have led to MSNBC’s Tucker Carlson describing Wright as “a full-blown hater.”


“If Barack gets past the primary, he might have to publicly distance himself from me,” Wright told The New York Times with a shrug. “I said it to Barack personally, and he said ‘yeah, that might have to happen.‘”

Oh, its happening big time….to little avail.

Now I’m sure the lefties will try to ignore this seeing as how it comes from Newsmax but I doubt we will hear the last of this kind of stuff… faaaact here are a few recent additions to the file:

Obama at the 93rd annual Hampton University Ministers’ Conference:

“I’ve got to give a special shout-out to my pastor, the guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me. He’s a friend, and a great leader. Please everybody give an extraordinary welcome to my pastor, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Jr. …Where he at? -There he is! That’s him right there!”
