Obama's Rev. Wright Jr. "white America got a wake up call after 9/11"
Barack Obamas racist and anti-semitic church


http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...
Excerpts:

Obamas membership in a Chicago South Side Trinity United Church of Christ headed by a racist and anti-semitic pastor, Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.

In sermons and interviews, Dr. Wright has equated Zionism with racism and Israel with South Africa under its previous policy of apartheid. On the Sunday after 9/11, Wright said the attacks were a consequence of violent American policies. Four years later, Wright suggested that the attacks were retribution for Americas racism.

In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01, Wright wrote in a church-affiliated magazine. 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.

In one of his sermons, Wright said, Racism is how this country was founded and how this country is still run!We believe in white supremacy and black inferiority and believe it more than we believe in God.

As for Israel, The Israelis have illegally occupied Palestinian territories for over 40 years now, Wright has said. Divestment has now hit the table again as a strategy to wake the business community and wake up Americans concerning the injustice and the racism under which the Palestinians have lived because of Zionism.

Either Barrack Obama disavows his membership in Pastor Wrights church with its bizarre racist and anti-semitic views or hes toast even among liberal Democratic voters, if they havent been taken in by his platitudinous mantra of hope and change.

Should Obama emerge as a Democratic front runner in these early primaries, this scurrilous relationship will likely do him in, even if he feigns to disavow Pastor Wrights racist and anti-semitic views. Barack Obama still belongs to Pastor Wrights Trinity United Church in Chicago.

Natalee Holloway

Sen. Barack Obama's longtime friend and spiritual adviser trashed the memory of a missing and presumed dead American teenage girl, according to church publications reviewed by WND.

Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the controversial minister of Obama's church in Chicago, cited the case of Natalee Holloway's disappearance in Aruba in complaining about what he sees as the media's bias in covering white victims of crime over black victims.

"Black women are being raped daily in Darfur, Sudan, in the Congo and in Sub-Saharan Africa. That doesn't make news," Wright said in the August 2005 edition of Trumpet Magazine, a publication of his Trinity United Church of Christ.

But, "One 18-year-old white girl from Alabama gets drunk on a graduation trip to Aruba, goes off and 'gives it up' while in a foreign country, and that stays in the news for months!" he added. "Maybe I am missing something!"


On the Sunday following 9/11, Wright characterized the terrorist attacks as a consequence of violent American policies. Four years later, Wright suggested that the attacks were retribution for Americas racism.

In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01, Wright wrote in his church magazine Trumpet. 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.


maybe Obama should denounce his pastor...the rw is waiting to attack him on this and other very interesting truths....and the Obama's cry about racism...you don't have to be white to be a racist!
