Wrighting off Obama

Well! There are a number of things I could have blogged about today..it could have been :

Steve-O held with coke (apparently its all 80’s Miami now in Hollywood) going into the nut house..

UWI’s launch of a “virtual campus” in July (the physical one is already in a total mess would the virtual one just be a collection of error messages and viruses?)

a Minister in the Ministry of Finance saying “Fuck you” to everyone that’s concerned about the ridiculous rate of inflation in Trinidad

or my favorite, what came in as a very close second..

the beating and “citizen’s arrest” of 4 men from Ghana trying to sneak into Trinidad from Moruga

But this story just takes the cake, the frosting, ice-cream, candles and the gifts.

Barack Obama has been a member and active follower of the United Trinity Church of Christ in Chicago for over 20 years, a church which describes itself here:

We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian… Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain “true to our native land,” the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community.

Wow. Sounds like a Black Panther/Farrakhanist cult to me. But…it’s a church, and i’m assuming they do pray and stuff…so we can probably let this slide. Obama has been recently trying to force it down the throat of the public that he’s African-American, so news like this can probably go in his favor, especially among Black voters.

..However, the detail of quintessential interest regarding Obama’s affiliation to this church is the role of Reverend Jeremiah Wright Jr., who’s been on the job at the church for 36 years :

  • Obama has claimed Wright is his “pastor, friend and spiritual mentor”Obama and Wright
  • Obama claims Wright to be the source of inspiration for his attempt to put himself on equal footing with Hillary Clinton, seeing that she published a best selling book just before running for the Democratic nomination book, “The Audacity of Hope”, modelled after hearing one of his sermons.
  • Mr. Wright is one of the first people Mr. Obama thanked after his election to the Senate in 2004.
  • Mr. Obama personally consulted Wright before deciding to run for President. He prayed privately with Mr. Wright before announcing his candidacy last year.
  • Wright was officially part of Obama’s campaign for President
  • Obama donated $22,500 (and reportedly up to $200,000 in total) to Wright’s church in 2006
  • Wright officiated at Obama’s wedding
  • Wright baptized Obama’s children

In a nutshell, they go way back. Insinuating Obama is trying to court evangelical voters you say? Quite the contrary, unintentional or not.

The problem is Reverend Wright has a history of making the craziest, leftist, most radical, racist, inflammatory comments at his sermons, many of which were faithfully attended by Mr. Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama for the last 20 years. Here are just a few excerpts :

“Hillary is married to Bill, and Bill has been good to us….No, he ain’t! Bill did us, just like he did Monica Lewinsky. He was riding dirty.”

“Hillary ain’t never been called a n****r.”

“The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people….God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.” – 2003 sermon

We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye”

“We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost
(First sermon after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center – September 16th 2001)

lol. Absolutely unbelievable. This truly is Obama’s swiftboat. He began using race as his vehicle to securing the nomination, only to have it breakdown and explode in his face. The whole “i’m Black” thing is now in our faces, but not at all in a positive light. Similar to John Kerry using the swiftboat story as his method for bragging about how heroic he is, only to have it thrown back in his face, raising questions about his honesty and war hero credentials.

Obama is basically best friends with a Black supremicist and an anti-patriot. It doesn’t even matter whether he denounces Farakkhan anymore, if you’re buddies for 20 years with a guy that says the same thing that Farrakhan does. As a matter of fact it raises the question as to whether he really did truely denounce Farakkhan when confronted live with the fact that Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam supports his campaign.

The issue also brings up a number of interesting things about Obama :

  • What is his real reason for not supporting the war in Iraq…? Because its wrong…?…or because America is just a war-mongering state that randomly drops bombs on people..?
  • Did he intentionally not put his arm over his heart for the American anthem because he was really thinking “God Damn America?”
  • Were his wife’s comments about “being proud to be American for the first time” motivated from Wright’s sermons?
  • What does he really think about the Israel/Palestine conflict?
  • Would Wright still be part of his campaign if these facts weren’t brought to light? And if so, if elected as President of the “God-damned” America, what role will Rev. Wright officially play as a personal or official advisor?The fun still doesn’t stop. Even with 1000 words. The Obama campaign has been attempting to control the damage, reluctantly removing Wright from the official campaign and with Obama coming up with a video of a bullshit, sincere as a pathological liar on laughing gas, illogical to anyone with an IQ above 10 denouncement of the pastor’s statements, a considerable time after the story broke, which means he himself reluctantly did so, after leaving room hoping the story would go away.Certain idiots on blogs that I’ve read are also saying shit like “Obama’s minister’s words and beliefs aren’t Obamas” ,“Trinity has done a lot for the community and his words don’t make it racist” and similar nonsensical phrases. This is my response :
  • Why would someone donate thousands of dollars to an organization they kinda support?
  • Technically, the Nazis were a political party too
  • Why would someone wake up every Sunday morning, get dressed, and bring their wife and children to sermons from someone for TWENTY YEARS/20 years/Vingt années/Veinte años/20年/二十年 which contain statements which you “vehemently disagree and strongly condemn”. That, has my honor of being the biggest load of insulting-to-my-intelligence bullshit I’ve ever heard in my life. What the fuck? Were the sermons required courses for his degree? Even for those I walk out or stop going when the lecturer starts straying off-topic and talking irrelevant stuff ….How about Hillary Clinton attending KKK rallies for 20 years, having a Klansman for her godfather and then trying to talk her way out of it…and worse yet carry on her presidential campaign??? Where are the Newsweek articles and covers with Obama’s face with headings like “Is it time to call it quits”?

It really is all amazing. These next few days will be interesting. If this doesn’t scare off white people into not voting for this man, I don’t know what will, a picture of him with Saddam? Obama needs to quit his nonsense, stop his lies and two-facedness, and bow out of the race hoping he gets Secretary of State or something, but most importantly, stop taking us for fucking idiots.

    I think people are over thinking this incident. you are determined to see racism, you have to realize that if you’re out the black culture, your perspective is not objective and you don’ t have the experiences to put these statements into historical context. please don’t get me wrong i do not agree with Rev Wright’s rantings, but i can understand where he’s coming from.. This anger ias misplaced- overt racism did happen and continues to happen in this country. Wrights anger is towards the “social system” not white folks. It’s said that the flip side of anger is pain. and if thats true than Wright is drowning in it. Please people let’s give Obama the benefit of the doubt, afterall, Obamas mama is white, he was raised by his white grandparents, i don’t think he hates whites or this country. How would you like to be held accountable for the “things” your friends say?

    Thanks for the comment. you’re the first one to do so since I’ve started blogging on WordPress. However with all due respect, you’re repeating the same things that I scoffed at for it making no sense at all. My friends say things that I don’t agree with, when they do so I tell them, and in some cases I stopped being friends with them in cases when I truely “vehemently disagreed” with what they’ve said. I’m not interested in psychologically analyzing Rev. Wright and the reasons for him to make those comments. The fact is that the prospective President of the United States of America attended his hate-filled rantings for a very extended period of time, a period which I emphasized in 6 languages, and NEVER spoke out against it until he saw that his affiliation with him might hurt his campaign. Why the hell SHOULD we give him the benefit of the doubt? Can’t Barack Obama do anything wrong??

    OBAMA ONCE AGAIN SHOWS HE IS REAL AND SINCERE – I was impressed by Obama’s response. Clearly he does not share those views of the Minister.
    Obama represents a new generation of leadership that will strive to unite America. It is time to look forward and turn a new page in the 21st century. Obama represents the future and not the past of Wright, the Clintons, Bush’s or McCain’s. We need a fresh start and to turn the page in history.
    Obama is the emodiment of this change with the skill, vision and temperament to carry us forward.

    Oh fuck off. Its one thing to support the man but you Obama-worshippers make me sick. “Clearly he does not share those views of the Minister”. What the fuck would make it clear to you that he does then?
