John McCain Must Be Smiling

The racist Rev. Jeremiah Wright is at it again. This time he's narrowed his sights on...Senator Obama, of all people. This lunatic said, ""I said to Barack Obama last year, 'If you get elected, November the 5th, I'm coming after you, because you'll be representing a government whose policies grind under people,' Wright said." I'm sure Senator Obama has been sanctimoniously forewarned by this latest rant by HIS racist pastor. Rev. Wright is even going after a church member who, at great political risk to himself, refused to disassociate himself from this man. The alleged Rev. Wright went on to say, "Wright said he hopes the controversy will have a positive outcome and spark an honest dialogue about race in America."

Excuse me...but isn't this the same man who said: "G-D damn America" to his congregation (you know, the same congregation that was jumping up and down in praise of their pastor's comments?) in a youtube video? Remember this man saying in this youtube video, "America's chickens are coming home to roost" after the United States dropped atomic bombs on Japan and "supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans." This is reprehensible in and of itself. I mean, this is something along the lines of the loonies who think the government is responsible for 9-11. Just as a little history refresher course for Rev. Wright, since he obviously didn't study American History in school, it was Japan that attacked us first. To quote former NBA great Charles Barkley, "You hit me, I'm going to hit you right back, only harder." That is exactly what we did to Japan and are presently doing to terrorists in Afghanistan and Iraq. State terrorism against Palestinians? We do this by supporting Israel, a country whose very existence is mandated by the PLO and Hamas to be wiped off the face of the earth? Maybe that's what the good Rev. Wright is talking about. As for the apartheid government of South Africa; maybe I should have him read my blog entry "Money: The Ultimate Power Broker". As a young 20 year old sailor, I saw how our country reacted to the South African government when they tried to treat our black servicemen with the same racism that perpetuated in there policies of the time. The USA had always condemned the apartheid government for as long as I could remember.

And I'm sorry alleged Rev. Wright, I don't buy your cop-out reasoning by saying "...criticism comes from people who only have heard sound bites playing repeatedly on television and have never listened to my entire sermons." One can only surmise that if those were only sound bites, then the entire nauseating racist rant must have been on par with those by his white counterpart, former KKK leader David Duke.

Senator Obama may have made a politically fatal mistake by not distancing himself from this sycophant. But, that is his choice and one he will have to live with for the foreseeable future.
Somewhere Senator John McCain is smiling.

This is an interesting issue and I'd like to see how it pans out. I understand why Obama didn't distance himself from the comments (condemning his pastor could be played against him as being contradictory to his assertion that he's a church-going Christian), but it's hard for him to stand by Wright.

I disagree (somewhat) that Obama didn't distance himself from Rev. Wright due to his Christian beliefs coming under scrutiny. I think it was for a much more self-serving reason. He couldn't take a chance on alienating his largest bloc of voters, African-Americans. He's getting about 90% right now. If does something to offend them, he's in trouble.

I think he's already in trouble for some of his remarks toward middle American in San Francisco. I am sure people could say his remarks were taken out of context. But, in politics, nothing is taken out of context. It's a bare knuckled brawl. This Democratic Nomination process is nothing like I have ever seen in American politics. Thanks for your comment.
