Wright Attacks, Whites, Jews And MLK, Jr

From the New York Post:

Obama’s race-rant Rev. rages on

By MAUREEN CALLAHAN

June 27, 2010

CHICAGO — He’s been keeping such a low profile since nearly derailing Barack Obama’s campaign for president in 2008 — is it possible that the controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright has mellowed?

Hardly.

During a five-day seminar Wright taught last week at the University of Chicago, he was back at it, claiming that whites and Jews are controlling the flow of worldwide information and oppressing blacks in Israel and America.

"White folk done took this country," Wright said. "You’re in their home, and they’re gonna let you know it."

The course, advertised as focusing on politics and public policy in South Africa and America, was taught in a small, ground-floor room at the Chicago Theological Seminary on the university campus, where Wright’s voice echoed out an open window. The class was composed of about 15 to 20 students, mainly older African-American women who would arrive early and giddily linger during lunch breaks and after class, looking for the reverend’s attention. (The course cost a little over $1,000 if taken for college credit and $300 if taken without.)

The absence of young people was telling: The lectures seemed ossified, relics of a pre-civil-rights America — a point that Obama himself made during his famous speech on race in March 2008, prompted by the incendiary comments ("God damn America!") made by his former pastor and mentor.

"Not once in my conversations with him have I heard him talk about any ethnic group in derogatory terms, or treat whites with whom he interacted with anything but courtesy and respect," Obama said.

Yet during this course — which was described as asking, "What is the response and public witness of persons of faith to ongoing developments in both countries?" — Wright made many statements about what he believes are the true aims of whites and Jews.

"You are not now, nor have you ever been, nor will you ever be a brother to white folk," he said. "And if you do not realize that, you are in serious trouble."

He cited the writings of Bill Jones — author of the book "Is God a White Racist?" — as proof that white people cannot be trusted. "Bill said, ‘They just killed four of their own at Kent State. They’ll step on you like a cockroach and keep on movin’, cause you not a brother to them.’ "

Wright referred to Italians as "Mamma Luigi" and "pizzeria." He said the educational system in America is designed by whites to miseducate blacks "not by benign neglect but by malignant intent."

He said Ethiopian Jews are despised by white Jews: "And now the Knesset [Israeli parliament] is meeting with European Jews, voting on whether or not these African Jews can get into [Israel]."

The civil-rights movement, Wright said, was never about racial equality: "It was always about becoming white . . . to master what [they] do." Martin Luther King, he said, was misguided for advocating nonviolence among his people, "born in the oven of America."

"We probably have more African-Americans who’ve been brainwashed than we have South Africans who’ve been brainwashed," he said, and seemed to allude to President Obama twice: "Unfortunately, I got in trouble with a fella for saying this . . . All your commentaries are written by oppressors." At the mention of Nation of Islam head Louis Farrakhan — whom Obama disavowed during the campaign — black leaders "go cuttin’ and duckin’," he said

A few months ago, Wright and his family moved into a brand-new million-dollar home located near a golf course and made of stone with a recessed doorway surrounded by pillars. It’s the only house on a cul-de-sac. Records show it was sold by Trinity United Church to a company called ATG Trust and paid for in cash…

Lest we forget, Mr. Obama called the Reverend Wright his "spiritual mentor." And, As the article notes, Mr. Obama claimed that he never heard Mr. Wright say an untoward thing.

Oddly enough, we’ve never heard him say anything else.

  1. Liberals Demise

    With so much hate built up in one person, it is a wonder as to why he has not ganked himself yet.

    Too bad he won’t do the “RIGHT” thing.

    • GetBackJack

      Melvin Udall to Reverend Wright: Where do they teach you to talk like this? In some Panama City “Sailor wanna hump-hump” bar, or is it getaway day and your last shot at his whiskey? Sell crazy someplace else Reverend, we’re all stocked up here.

    The civil-rights movement, Wright said, was never about racial equality: “It was always about becoming white . . . to master what [they] do.”

    It’s called assimilating. Business, at least for now, functions on book English. Try getting a high powered job speaking Ebonics and acting ghetto. It ‘ain’t’ gonna happen. Sheesh!!!

    “We probably have more African-Americans who’ve been brainwashed than we have South Africans who’ve been brainwashed,” he said…”

    It is you, Mr. Wright, doing the brainwashing thus continuing black victimization and reverse racial hatred. Seems you have joined the ranks of your brethren, Jesse and Al, doing a disservice to your own as well as making off with millions to line your own pockets.

      …..”It’s called assimilating…..”

      Yes, TZ, but somehow we’re supposed to soldier on and pretend all is well, and one set of standards is as good as another. We’re supposed to recognize cultural stupidity as a valid means of expression, and if we don’t, we’re somehow racist.

      Check out the following;

      How would you pronounce this child’s name?

      “Le-a”

      Leah?? NO
      Lee – A?? NOPE
      Lay – a?? NO
      Lei?? Guess Again.

      This child attends a school in Kansas City , Mo. Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her name wrong. It’s pronounced
      “Ledasha”, When the Mother was asked about the pronunciation of the name, she said, “the dash don’t be silent.”

      SO, if you see something come across your desk like this please
      remember to pronounce the dash. If dey axe you why, tell dem de
      dash don’t be silent.

    • Chinnubie

      And the ingnorance continues to march on, I just LOVE that story about the “dash” ain’t silent!! I laughed my butt off!!!

    • Rusty Shackleford

      Chinnubie, it’s “the dash don’t be silent.”

      Where you be raised up at? Dontchu knows Inggish?

    “”Not once in my conversations with him have I heard him talk about any ethnic group in derogatory terms…” Obama said.”

    Uh huh. After 20 years of listening to someone’s public speeches and private musings I don’t have any idea what they believe, either.

    “At the mention of Nation of Islam head Louis Farrakhan…black leaders go cuttin’ and duckin,'” [Wright] said.

    Yeah, imagine people feeling untoward about a Muslim who wants a separate country in the United States for blacks only.

    “Martin Luther King, he said, was misguided for advocating nonviolence among his people, “born in the oven of America.”

    The oven? Is that a sly comment comparing the state of African Americans in the twentieth century to the Nazi ovens that burned Jews during the Holocaust? I hope not but I wouldn’t be surprised. So the loser believes that the civil rights movement should have been violent against whites.

    How did this jerk become a preacher? Wright preaches race hate and calls it spiritual.

    Actually, he sounds a lot like radical imams. I’m sure they could share a cup of tea and several conspiracy theories about Jewish people “controlling the flow of worldwide information.”

    • Steve

      “Actually, he sounds a lot like radical imams.”

      Actually, the Reverend Wright did study Islam quite extensively. Inasmuch as he has ever studied anything besides hucksterism.

  4. proreason

    Hannity is right.

    Obamy IS Rev Wright.

    In the end life isn’t easy but it is fairly simple:

    You either work for the greater good,
    or you work to get even.

    Or you don’t work at all. You sit and observe what you think is the natural ebb and flow of these two forces without ever really participating.

    It’s been clear who this hate-monger was from the beginning, as clear as it was that his star pupil very much heard and took to heart all those insidious rants. You can count on them both to stay true to their pattern. Lie lie lie. Blame blame blame. It never fails. We all know people like this. A lot of today’s parents particularly know creatures like this.

    I don’t even want to give them any more attention. But of course, the moment you turn your eye away they’re wreaking havoc.

    “You are not now, nor have you ever been, nor will you ever be a brother to white folk,” he said. “And if you do not realize that, you are in serious trouble.”

    So, was he really reying to say .. “I am not now, nor have I ever been, nor will I ever be a brother to white folk. And if you don’t realize that, you are mightily misguided!”.

    “Wright referred to Italians as “Mamma Luigi” and “pizzeria.”

    Naw .. no racism or slur there.

    This kook is outright sickened and dangerous. Why anybody would pay $300, much less a $1000, to hear his bile is just as sick as he.

  7. What does this sermon say about Wright’s congregation, including Obama? They wouldn’t sit through these rants every week if they didn’t agree with them.

    • heykev

      Having met many members of Rev. Wright’s church. None of them had even a basic understanding of Christianity, doctrine or anything related to faith and practice of being a Christian.

      With over 10,000 attending there every week, I’m sure there are some that have this understanding. But from what I gathered, it was simply a place to attend to be seen “in the community.” Not someplace to attend to learn scripture and apply what it says to your life.

    “I don’t think my church is particularly controversial….” –Barak Obama

    A racist doesn’t think his racist church is racist? Imagine that!

    Do the reversal test: If a white person would have said this, would it have been considered racist? Yes? Then it’s just as racist if some non-white person says it as well.

    Such is the liberal’s moral relativism.

    Obama wrote he disguised his muslim conversion in high school, and looked for a hero from “a far off land” to full fill his dream and “populate this new world” !!!!!!.

    Dreams From My Father by Barack Obama

    pg 86 excerpts Obama’s words

    “….And yet, even as I imagined myself following Malcolm’s call, one line in the book stayed with me. He spoke of a wish he’d once had, the wish that the white blood that ran through him, there by an act of violence,

    might somehow be expunged. I knew that, for Malcolm, that wish would never be incidental. I knew as well that traveling down the road to self-respect my own white blood would never recede into mere abstraction.

    I was left to wonder what else I would be severing if and when I left my mother and my grandparents at some uncharted border.

    And, too: If Malcolm’s discovery toward the end of his life, that some whites might live beside him as brothers in Islam,
    seemed to offer some hope of eventual reconciliation, that hope appeared in a distant future, in a far-off land.
    In the meantime, I looked to see where the people would come from who were willing to work toward this future, in a far-off land.

    In the meantime, I looked to see where the people would come from who were willing to work toward this future, and populate this new world.

    pg. 87

    Malik mentioned that he was a follower of the Nation of Islam but since Malcolm had died and he had moved to Hawaii he no longer went to mosque or political meetings, although he still sought comfort in solitary prayer. One of the guys sitting nearby must have overheard us, for he leaned over with a sagacious expression on his face.
    “You all talking about Malcolm, huh? Malcolm tells it like it is, no doubt about it.”
    “Yeah,” another guy said. “But I tell you what-you won’t see me moving to no African jungle anytime soon. Or some goddamned desert somewhere, sitting on a carpet with a bunch of Arabs. No sir. And you won’t see me stop eating no ribs.”
    “Gotta have them ribs.”
    “And pussy, too. Don’t Malcolm talk about no pussy? Now you know that ain’t going to work.”….

    I decided to keep my own counsel after that, learning to disguise my feverish mood. …”
    ——————————————————————-
    Rev Wright still talking just like a muslim.
