Why Jeremiah Wright Matters — Still

Pages: 1 2

Wright calls the criminal justice system racially biased against blacks. So does Obama. Wright, in 2006, falsely said, “We’ve got more black men in prison than there are in college.” A year later, Obama repeated the Wright canard almost verbatim: “More young black men languish in prison than attend colleges and universities across America.” Pre-emptively deciding Trayvon Martin’s death was a matter of racial profiling, Obama said, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” Obama sided with the indignant black Harvard professor instead of the white cop who was properly responding to a call about possible burglary. “The Cambridge police,” Obama said, “acted stupidly.”

Obama, in “Dreams From My Father,” quotes Wright from the “Audacity to Hope” sermon: “White folks’ greed runs a world in need.”

What does Obama blame for the financial crisis? “Greed” and “fat cat bankers on Wall Street.” Obama’s greed-based view explains why he denounces “millionaires and billionaires” for failing to pay their “fair share” of taxes. It tells us why candidate Obama told an Ohio plumber, “I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”

Wright’s relationship with Obama helps explain the president’s handling of the Israeli-Palestinian dispute.

Wright said in a 2007 interview, “When (Obama’s) enemies find out that in 1984, I went to Tripoli (to visit Moammar Gadhafi) with Farrakhan, a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell.” Wright also blamed “Zionists” for “ethnic cleansing” in Gaza. Does this not shed light on why Obama condemned the “reckless” building of Israeli “settlements” in east Jerusalem — causing an immediate chill in America’s relationship with Israel? Does Wright’s anti-Semitism tell us something about why Obama said “nobody’s suffering more than the Palestinian people from this whole process”?

But Wright is off-limits.

For his new book, “The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House,” reporter Ed Klein taped a lengthy interview with Wright. The reverend claims that Obama secretly met with him and tried to dissuade Wright from speaking out until the election. He says an Obama surrogate offered him $150K to stop giving speeches until after the 2008 election!

Even then-Sen. Obama thought Wright was fair game. “I think that people were legitimately offended by some of the comments that (Wright) had made in the past,” said Obama in April 2008. “The fact that he’s my former pastor, I think, makes it a legitimate political issue.”

But Wright, four years later, is off-limits — unless you’re nuts.

    It is not exactly "Wright, who is off-limits – unless you're nuts", Mr. Elder. It is Obama/Soetoro's ineligibility and crimes which remain off-limits already 4 years for almost entire media including the Front Page magazine.

    It is criminal GOP, McCain/Palin, Dems, the US Congress and others who betrayed the US Constitution in 2008 – and then "nonchalantly sit down in the living room, lit up a pipe, picked up the newspaper and casually leafed through it: What's bed, America? Are you nut?"

    Soon Obama/Soetoro happened to be discovered a complete fraud, forger, identity thief without any valid papers! Yet state officials quietly re-enter the name of Obama – the candidate with such a baggage of illegitimacy and criminality – into the primary voting ballots as though it were business as usual! And he remains to be off limits for the Front page even now, when only the most stupid and loyal water carriers for GOP zealously follow the same treasonous party line!

      This is a good piece. Why do you diminish it?

      • http://www.resonoelusono.com/NaturalBornCitizen.htm Alexander Gofen

        I just demonstrated what was carefully evaded and left off limits of this good piece.

        • WildJew

          Do you really think – even if were proved Obama is not qualified under the requirements of the Constitution – any court would would rule that he is not qualified; that he should be removed from office after the people elected him? The only way to remove Obama is at the polls in November. All else is futility. Your beef is with your stupid American neighbor who voted for and supports Obama.

          Joseph Farah, CEO World Net Daily and his friend Jerome Corsi have been on the forefront of this story since Obama became president. I used to call Farah when he was syndicated for a few months on the radio here in our community. Farah basically defended Bush's pro-Islam policies visa-vis Israel telling me it's Israel's fault for not standing up to Bush's immoral demands. Farah made it clear he did not vote for George W. Bush in 2000 (I think he voted for Buchanan) because Bush violated the U.S. Constitution. Then in 2004 Farah endorsed Bush for re-election. Bush did much to further Obama's prospects with all his dishonesty about Islam and Israel.

          Since Obama was elected, this eligibility issue has been Farah and WND's issue. Farah endorsed Bush for re-election in 2004. I don't have much faith in Farah. Sorry. The way to stop demagogues and tyrants like Obama from rising to power, is to hold our own people (e.g. Bush, Romney, etc.) accountable. No one the right held Bush accountable. No one on the right called out Bush for his lies about the enemy and his lies about Israel illegitimately "occupying" Muslim land and for his and Rice's lies about Israel "humiliating and oppressing" Muslim jihadists. Bush was and is an apologist for Islam. Who said anything?

          … Futility because you said so? A civilized nation does not remove criminals from the office by not reelecting them again… An election is desecrated by mere fact of having an illegitimate candidate and criminal on the ballot. A responsible citizen must tear such ballot a pieces.

          "Joseph Farah, CEO World Net Daily and his friend Jerome Corsi have been on the forefront of this story since Obama became president."

          Dr. Orly Taitz has rather been on the forefront…

          "… George W. because Bush violated the U.S. Constitution… Bush did much to further Obama's prospects…"

          Bush had committed an act of treason by his failure to stop an impostor Obama/Soetoro from even campaigning in 2008. Bush failed to uphold the US Constitution. Romney is the same crook. The entire GOP is a criminal party which will end up in a dust bin of history together with dems (although the gallows would be more appropriate).

          Ms. Larie Roth is so far the only candidate who exposes the impostor and does stand for the Constitution and conservative values.

          • WildJew

            I am not convinced as you are, Obama is illegitimate in terms of his birth. Evil yes. Illegitimate, I cannot say. I think the issue could be excuse for people who did not do squat while Bush was president; like people who supported Bush's re-election. People like Joseph Farah and millions of others who are distraught that Obama was elected president. Bush may have committed an act of treason long before his failure to stop an Obama/Soetoro from campaigning in 2008. He may have committed an act of treason when the White House authorized flights for approx. 140 members of the Saudi Royal and bin Laden families out of the U.S., only hours after the September attacks at a time FAA prohibited all domestic flights. Bush might have committed treason in the manner he covered up Saudi complicity in the atrocities.

            What did you do? What did you write? Did you call into talk radio programs complaining about Bush and his lies about Islam after the 9/11 attacks? If so, what programs? In what newspapers did you write letters to the editor? Before Obama produced a copy of his long-form certificate, I was one of the few non-"birthers" out there holding until he produced his long-form birth certificate, there was at least room for doubt. Most conservatives scoffed at you Alexander. Most conservatives consider you a wacko-conspiracy theorist. Not me.

            But since Obama produced a copy of a long-form certificate, I notice the "birther" issue has receded a good deal. It's receded a lot. I've not seen positive proof that what he produced is a forgery. I'm not sure anything will convince you. I'm not sure you've done your due diligence. Again, I want to know what you did during the Bush years.

          • http://www.resonoelusono.com/NaturalBornCitizen.htm Alexander Gofen

            1) I had been denouncing the Bush's patented "religion of peace" since he uttered it, and I wrote http://www.resonoelusono.com/Imminent.htm and posted his photo with the Saudi king http://www.resonoelusono.com/Infamy.htm

            2) The last link will also educate you on the civic of the Natural Born and all the illegality of it since 2008.

            3) The first criminal component of Obama/Soetoro is known since 2009: his fake social security number of the state of Connecticut – thank to the experts of Dr. Tiatz.

            4) The most egregious criminal component of Obama/Soetoro is his coarse forgery of the "full BC" posted in 2011. The typographic and logic inconsistences of it are mind boggling. Just to mention the father's race "African" instead of the then normative term "Negro". All that is in the trial record of GA, and also confirmed by the Sheriff Arpaio posse recently.

            Therefore "you have noticed" nothing, and it is your diligence that needs improvement. I have been writing trying to contact to whoever I could. This

            The question I asked and you apparently want to avoid is this? Why did the German people help elevate the Nazi party (and an Austrian corporal) to power in Germany in the early nineteen thirties? Why did your American neighbors elevate Barack Hussein Obama to the presidency in 2008? Will they return this man to office again in November 2012?

          • http://www.resonoelusono.com/NaturalBornCitizen.htm Alexander Gofen

            I do not evade ANY questions: it is not my pattern of behavior. Sorry for missing that particular.

            1) There were multiple reasons why Germans of various walks of life elevated Hitler, and he appealed to quite different interests: from anti-Semitic to the offended national pride to terrible economy to demagogic promises.

            2) There are at least two different types of Americans who elevated Obama/Soetoro in 2008. (a) Some international socialist elite, who tried to cancel the Natural born requirement in the US Congress six times since 2000 (see the historian J. Williams in the link Infamy above). (2) A huge crowed of the human garbage, free-loaders cultivated in America for over 60 years (see 2008vs1917).

            3) They will return this criminal into the office if you and all of us do nothing.

            Sorry, I did not mean to impugn your motives. My question is implied. Your issue is not with Obama so much as it is with your fellow Americans. It is the American people who elected this dangerous man. It is the American public that continues to like Obama at a personal level, astonishingly. Often I feel like I live in a nation full of idiots.

          • http://www.resonoelusono.com/NaturalBornCitizen.htm Alexander Gofen

            We do live in a nation full of idiots (in low and high classes). Yet you miss a more important part. We live in a nation full of traitors in the high class who had set all this into motion.

  • Bamaguje

    Notice how these not-really-Black demagogues (Obama, Wright) go out of their way to stoke racial hatred.
    It's as if they deperately trying to shore up their credentials among Black folks.

  • StephenD

    Let's see…we got to re-visit what Romney MAY have done as a prank in High School, some 50 years ago, and that is fair game because it tells us of his character because as was stated "if there is a pattern of him being a bully, we don't want a bully as President."
    But if you bring up Wright (I refuse to REVERE him), he is off limits because it was WAY BACK in 2008.
    Chicago speaks and everyone listens. Axelrod must be laughing his ass off.

  • Jim_C

    Bring it on. Didn't work the first time, won't again–but what the heck–it makes you feel good about yourself, right? So get to it! Don't forget to mention Bill Ayers!

    While you're at it, how's that birth certificate investigation going?

    • http://RussP.us Russ P.

      The only reason it "didn't work" the first time is that (a) McCain himself declined to even pursue the issue, and (b) the liberal media has an absolutely amazing double standard. Obama gives one speech "distancing" himself from the guy he had called his "spiritual mentor," and the whole matter is now off limits?! Yeah, right!

      The media has hoodwinked the public, including many Republicans, into believing that any mention of Wright is a "diversion" or "distraction" from the "real" issues. As Larry Elder eloquently explained, he isn't. I'm certainly not suggesting that Wright should be a major focus of the campaign, but the idea that he should be "off limits" is sheer nonsense.

  • http://RussP.us Russ P.

    As usual, he double standard is beyond amazing. Imagine that David Duke had given a speech "distancing" himself from the KKK — and the national media instantly declared that his association with the KKK is not off limits! Not only that, but if Democrats insist on making it an issue, *they* are the racists!

    • http://RussP.us Russ P.

      OK, let's try that one more time. As usual, the double standard is beyond amazing. Imagine that David Duke had given a speech "distancing" himself from the KKK — and the national media instantly declared that his association with the KKK is now off limits! Not only that, but if Democrats insist on making it an issue, *they* are the racists!

      • WildJew

        You are absolutely right. That is why Romney dropped the ball, like McCain. That is why I voted for Gingrich in the primary. I don't think Gingrich would have said Obama's dangerous adult associations are off limits like Romney and McCain have.

  • Nomadic100

    Guys, it's important to keep our eye on the ball. Obama must be removed from office by any legal means possible.

    Railing against Bush, Romney or the media will not accomplish much.

    • WildJew

      I think it is a good idea to hold our people accountable, don't you? In my opinion, that is why we have this nightmare in the White House. We did not hold Bush accountable and I place myself in that camp till at least 2004 when I finally spoke out publicly against Bush's appeasement policies; about his lies about Islam being a religion of peace and his egregious lies about Israel. For the first four years I was shamefully silent because, like you, I tried to keep my "eye on the ball." Like my late Republican friend chastised me when I complained about Bush's immoral foreign policy, "Would you rather have Gore?" That's not the point. The point is Romney is wimping-out on Obama / Wright. He needs to be called out, don't you think? I'm not going to make the mistake with Romney I made with Bush. How about you Nomadic?

      • fiddler

        Anybody who runs against Obama has to contend with the compromised media. One example is Chris Matthews. The media is chomping at the bit for this to be turned away from the economy (what the president should be judged on) and instead to places where they can pool their creative might together to ruin a candidate with any number of accusations (true or otherwise). The media believes themselves to be all-powerful "king makers" or "king breakers" (such as Dan Rather was for GW).

        Break out bumper stickers that say "Question the NYT", "Question Chris Matthews", "Question MSNBC" and the like. They are nothing more than story tellers for the left and cannot be trusted.
