Barack Obama and his race-baiting pastor, Jeremiah A. Wright. In a recent sermon, Wright blamed the death of Jesus on "Italians!" (You can hear that for yourself by going to the Politico.com link below and accessing the YouTube video.)
Wright, whom Obama describes alternately as his "spiritual advisor" and his "uncle" is a race-baiting hate-monger. He might singlehandedly do something the Clinton Machine couldn't: destroy the Obama campaign.
Here's the link to the video of Wright doing everything but foam at the mouth: http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0308/Wright_on_film.html
The following is the Politico.com's Ben Smith giving his initial reaction to Wright's fulminations:
"Sure does feel like we're plunging into the abyss tonight."
"Fox just posted a big Jeremiah Wright story, and the video is pretty gripping, and deeply racially confrontational. He begins by describing the Romans, who crucified Jesus, as Italians, and thus white, and more or less goes from there."
“'Barack knows what it means living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich white people,” Wright says.
"'Hillary ain't never been called a nigger,' he says at the climax."
Steve adds: I'll have much more to say about this situation tomorrow (Friday). It could be the beginning of the end for the Obama Campaign. It certainly raises the question of what Obama (and his wife) really believe about America -- and Caucasians.
I doubt seriously that the people of Pennsylvania are going to put up with this situation. Barack Obama has been sitting in Rev. Wright's church, listening to such "sermons" for 20 years. Why didn't he do the right thing -- and leave that church two decades ago? If Obama wants to "bring us together," the best for him to start doing so is by thoroughly rejecting Wright AND ALL HE STANDS FOR.
It's not enough for Barack Obama to give limp comments about how he "disagrees" (with no specifics) about some of Jeremiah Wright's anti-American and anti-Caucasian statements. Obama has been a member of Wright's church for 20 years, and we need to know how many times he was one of those hooting and hollering in support of Wright's disgusting messages. This is a church whose members have named anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan as "Man of the Year."
The media need to do more than wave pom-poms anytime Obama clears his throat. The media need to stop giving the Illinois Senator a free-pass that no other candidate would receive.In his stump speech, Obama notes that he got the title for his autobigraphy ("The Audacity of Hope") from his friend, mentor, and minister Wright.
In fact, Pastor Wright is not audacious. He's a disgusting racist, an inconvenient truth that Obama chooses to ignore. Wright might not have a full deck, but he certainly knows how to play the race card.
Recently, Michelle Obama noted that, as an adult, she'd been ashamed of her country (one that educated her at Harvard and gave her a $250,000 a year salary as a hospital executive). Is Barack Obama ashamed of his country? I fear the answer to that question s is yes, although I doubt we'll hear it from the candidate's mouth. If that's the case, then what on earth is he doing running for President?
Please watch the shameful video of Jeremiah Wright (clicking on the Politico.com link above) -- and the reactions to his hate-speech by the supposed Christians in his church. Is that the kind of minister we want advising a President of the U.S.?
Bulletin: CNN has just announced that John McCain is leading in polls in Michigan -- a "Blue" state -- and it is now rated as a toss-up for the general election. Yesterday, the WSJ poll showed McCain leading both Clinton and Obama in another "Blue" state: Pennsylvania.
Here's a YouTube version of the McCain campaign’s new Web video:
