Reverend Wright's Sermons Point out Hypocrisy of Many of us ...

Obama titled a book "Audacity of Hope" from Wright's sermon, he was friend and mentor to him for 20 years...married him and baptized their two children..and now Obama denounces Wright's opinions? Reverend Wright seems to preach that "Rich White Men" are responsible for all the world's problems. That "White People" have not followed the teachings of the "Black Jesus." That's pretty inflammatory, separatist rhetoric for Obama's Pastor and Mentor to be preaching. It will turn off a lot of people who will see Wright as the opposite of David Duke. The RW Repugs are going to gleefully point that out. How do we know what Obama really believes in his heart? Does he have sympathy with a Black separatist movement? He denounces what Reverend Wright preaches...but only now when it's politically expedient to do so?
While I might agree with what Rev. Wright said ...I wish he had put it in the context that all people of the world have suffered under a Corporatist/Military Industrial Complex that in some ways goes back to the beginning of time. But not all the world's conquerors and oppressors have been white, if one has any high school education of world history you know they come in all colors and of all religious persuasions. Reverend Wright's comments focused on "rich white folks" and not the true oppressors and war mongers who pillage and rape the poorest and most disadvantaged amongst us. Rather than attacking Hillary Clinton for not suffering like "black people" shouldn't he have been talking against the Regime that's now in place in DC?
Those of us here on DU (who have for years railed on about RW Evangelical Preachers with their congregations in the thousands who preach Biblical Distortions} can understand that if Reverend Wright were a white preacher saying what he does about "rich Black folks," and the "White Jesus" we wouldn't be thinking of his preaching as just "RW hyperbolic rhetoric" that white Fundamentalists "just happen to use in some parts of America" giving the rhetoric "a pass" just because we now support a Candidate running for office that is part of that church and those preachings.
This is what is going to cause Obama trouble when the GOP goes after him before the Election. They will shine the light on this hypocrisy... and drive it to the ground because so many in the GOP have been attacked for their Fundamentalist beliefs and inflammatory rhetoric.
10. You know who funds the Politico...right? Bushbots...and they've been breaking
news that is disagreeable to both candidates. But, at times pump one over the other to mix it up and spread dissention amongst the Democrats. I notice that they get quoted all the time by CNN/MSNBC and C-Span's Washington Journal. For a very young online newspaper they get an awful lot of coverage.
I wouldn't say that campaign ops might not get a leak or two to them. But, given the kind of crap Ops Kerry and Gore had working for them...I would imagine there are Moles who love to help the GOP out with their dirty work.
