S&L Begat Obama’s Rev Wright Problem

The latest confirmation from the New York Post:



April 30, 2008 — ALBANY – The Rev. Jeremiah Wright would be happy to see Barack Obama’s presidential campaign derailed because the pastor is fuming that his former congregant has “betrayed” their 20-year relationship.

The Post has learned. “After 20 years of loving Barack like he was a member of his own family, for Jeremiah to see Barack saying over and over that he didn’t know about Jeremiah’s views during those years, that he wasn’t familiar with what Jeremiah had said, that he may have missed church on this day or that and didn’t hear what Jeremiah said, this is seen by Jeremiah as nonsense and betrayal,” said the source, who has deep roots in Wright’s Chicago community and is familiar with his thinking on the matter.



S&L Reprise: Wright Erased From Obama Site

Given recent events we have decided to reprise some of the original reporting from S&L that helped uncover the true nature of Mr. Obama’s “spiritual mentor.”

Just like in the bad old days of the Stalinist Soviet Union, an inconvenient personage has been airbrushed from the Barack Obama campaign’s website.

Before, via Google’s cache (as retrieved on Mar 8, 2008 20:01:06 GMT):


And the current page:


Now is that keeping the faith?

For the record here is Mr. Wright’s now disappeared endorsement:

Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.

Senior Pastor, Trinity United Church of Christ, Chicago, IL
Senator Obama’s pastor

I’m concerned with healthcare; the war in Iraq; the high rates of recidivism in our criminal justice system; the poor condition of the Illinois public school system.

S&L Reprise: Farrakhan Gets ‘Wright Award’

Given recent events we have decided to reprise some of the original reporting from S&L that helped uncover the true nature of Mr. Obama’s “spiritual mentor.”

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan received the “Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. Lifetime Achievement Trumpeteer” Award at the 2007 Trumpet Gala held on November 2, at the Hyatt Regency Chicago.

It’s not often that one gets to interview an icon. Someone called by a singular moniker and everyone knows of whom you speak — a person who can walk into a room and cause pause because of his physical presence and historical significance.

S&L Reprise: 9/11 Wake-up Call For Whites

Given recent events we have decided to reprise some of the original reporting from S&L that helped uncover the true nature of Mr. Obama’s “spiritual mentor.”

The following is from a pdf file of sermon from Barack Hussein Obama’s “spiritual mentor” as published in October 2003 issue of the Wright’s (Farrakhan-like) monthly magazine, “The Trumpet.” 

The “sermon” is a wide-ranging diatribe which includes, among other things, calls for US divestiture in Israel.

But even amidst the Reverend’s many crackpot and racist statements, this one jumped out:

Maybe I Missed Something!

A Message From our PASTOR, Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., Senior Pastor

In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01. White America and the Western world came to realize that people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just “disappeared” as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring Black concerns.



S&L Reprise: #1 Killer America Started AIDS

Given recent events we have decided to reprise some of the original reporting from S&L that helped uncover the true nature of Mr. Obama’s “spiritual mentor.”

This was the first YouTube clip and transcription of a Jeremiah Wright “sermon” published anywhere.

It is still one of the fuller examples we have of the Reverend’s learned teachings:

God Has Got To Be Sick Of This Shit!

[Joined in progress] … Justice is ignored. When women are treated like, or are permitted by this society to be called publicly “bitches,” justice is ignored.

And on that note, on that note, let me paraphrase Dr. Anthony Campolo, one of the nation’s greatest preachers.

He said something to this effect.

Fact number one: we’ve got more black men in prison than there are in college.

Reprise: Obama’s Racist, Anti-US Church

Given recent events we have decided to reprise some of the original reporting from S&L that helped uncover the true nature of Mr. Obama’s “spiritual mentor.”

Mr. Obama has recently issued statements through his spokesmen in the media (i.e., reporters) which express his shock at being questioned about such things.

Most of his media spokesmen (i.e., reporters) have then gone on to cite his membership in Chicago’s Trinity United Church Of Christ parish as proof that he is just a regular run of the mill American Christian.

But a visit to the Trinity Church’s website proves that it is not your everyday Christian parish:

Trinity United Church of Christ

About Us

We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian… Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent.

Obama Now Outraged By Wright’s Comments

From the hitherto un-outraged Associated Press:

Obama says he’s outraged by former pastor’s comments

By MIKE GLOVER, Associated Press Writer

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Barack Obama angrily denounced his former pastor for “divisive and destructive” remarks on race, seeking to divorce himself from the incendiary speaker and a fury that threatens to engulf his front-running Democratic presidential campaign.

Obama is trying to tamp down the uproar over the Rev. Jeremiah Wright at a tough time in his campaign. The Illinois senator is coming off a loss in Pennsylvania to rival Hillary Rodham Clinton and trying to win over white working-class voters in Indiana and North Carolina in next Tuesday’s primaries.

“I am outraged by the comments that were made and saddened over the spectacle that we saw yesterday,” Obama told reporters at a news conference Tuesday.



Top Hillary Backer Brought Wright To The NPC

From a column in the New York Daily News:

The Reverend Doctor Barbara Reynolds and the Reverend Doctor Jeremiah Wright at the National Press Club event Monday, which was organized by Reynolds.

Is Jeremiah Wright a colossal disaster for Barack Obama or a press trick?

Tuesday, April 29th 2008

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright couldn’t have done more damage to Barack Obama’s campaign if he had tried. And you have to wonder if that’s just what one friend of Wright wanted.

Shortly before he rose to deliver his rambling, angry, sarcastic remarks at the National Press Club Monday, Wright sat next to, and chatted with, Barbara Reynolds.

A former editorial board member at USA Today, she runs something called Reynolds News Services and teaches ministry at the Howard University School of Divinity.



Rev Wright’s Q&A Session At The NPC – Video

From the Reverend Doctor’s historic appearance yesterday morning at the National Press Club, via YouTube:

Mr. Wright epitomizes a symptom we have often noted in the America-hating left.

He is stupid — and smug about it.

(And that is being far too kind, of course.)

Jeremiah Wright at the National Press Club

The transcript of the Reverend Doctor Wright’s edifying remarks from CQ Transcriptions, via the New York Times:

Reverend Wright at the National Press Club

REVEREND WRIGHT: Over the next few days, prominent scholars of the African-American religious tradition from several different disciplines — theologians, church historians, ethicists, professors of the Hebrew bible, homiletics, hermeneutics, and historians of religions — those scholars will join in with sociologists, political analysts, local church pastors, and denominational officials to examine the African-American religious experience and its historical, theological and political context.

The workshops, the panel discussions, and the symposium will go into much more intricate detail about this unknown phenomenon of the black church


… than I have time to go into in the few moments that we have to share together.



Wright Says Blacks Are Differently Abled

A transcript of the Revered Jeremiah Wright’s racist hate speech to the NAACP (as opposed to his racist hate speech to the National Press Club), courtesy of CNN:

The NAACP has an incomparable record. It has the longest list of achievements in the history of this country as being the undisputed champion in the fight against discrimination, racial prejudice, and unjust public policies, which have caused people made in the image of God to be treated as less than human or treated as second-class citizens.

In its early days, the NAACP and the black church in the United States of America were seemingly joined at the hip in the fight against injustice and the fight for equality on behalf of all people of color.

Many local chapters of the NAACP were started in black churches.



The Many Moods Of Jeremiah Wright – Photos

Stills from the Reverend Doctor’s bizarre rant at the National Press Club, via the wire services:


Though, maybe there aren’t so many moods expressed after all. Just a smug self-righteous superiority based upon untrammeled ignorance and hatred.

Still, please don’t stop, Mr. Wright.

For once you in your hate-filled life you are doing the Lord’s work.



Wright: Criticism Is ‘Attack On Black Church’

From his fans at the Associated Press:

Wright says criticism is attack on black church

By NEDRA PICKLER Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — The Rev. Jeremiah Wright says criticism surrounding his fiery sermons is an attack on the black church.

Barack Obama’s longtime pastor says he hopes the controversy will have a positive outcome and spark an honest dialogue about race in America. Wright says black church traditions are still “invisible” to many Americans, as they have been throughout the country’s history…

He said the black church tradition is not bombastic or controversial, but different and misunderstood by the “dominant culture” in the United States.

Needless to say this isn’t about black churches. It is about Mr. Wright’s red hot hatred of this country, capitalism, and of course, white people.



Muslims Torch A Fourth Indonesian Mosque

Monday, April 28, 2008

(04-28) JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Hundreds of protesters chanting “Kill, kill” set fire Monday to an Indonesian mosque belonging to a Muslim sect they claim is heretical, police said.

A policeman was wounded in the head when the crowd stoned the mosque in West Java province before setting it ablaze, said police spokesman Col. Dade Ahmad. Several suspects were taken in for questioning.

The attack was the latest targeting the Ahmadiyah sect in Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation.
