Obama Distorts Rev. Wright's Background - And More (Updated)Topics: Political News and commentaries
In his interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, Barack Obama again fabricated the background of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, his egocentric pastor of 20 years who preaches the gospel of "Black Liberation Theology" - a false Christian doctrine promulgated by Marxist-leaning black writers of the 1960s (and other collectivist claptrap), this time to try to excuse his longtime pastor's denunciations of America and of whites:
Referring to racial discrimination, violence, and segregation, Obama said Wright "went through experiences that I never went through."Hmmm ...
And then again, in his speech on race in Philadelphia, Obama made similar claims:
He described a "lack of economic opportunity among black men, and the shame and frustration that came from not being able to provide for one's family . . ."
... Wright grew up in a racially mixed, middle-class section of Philadelphia called Germantown, which consisted of homes on broad tree-lined streets. Both his parents had good jobs: His father was a pastor; his mother was vice principal of Philadelphia High School for Girls.Sounds like Obama's been telling whoppers again ....
Wright was privileged to attend the elite Central High School, which admits only the most highly-qualified applicants from all over the city. When Wright attended Central High, the student body was 90 percent white, according to students who attended at around the same time.
And while we're on the topic of the already infamous Jeremiah Wright, Dan Riehl's picked up on what indeed may be the saddest and perhaps most revealing truth of all for Wright and likely some in the Black community - buried within Wright's recent press club comments. It's the last portion of this phrase.
"Louis Farrakhan is not my enemy. He did not put me in chains, he did not put me in slavery, and he didn't make me this color."As Dan notes, think about what his comment really means...
I listened to the entire speech live, and when I heard him make that remark, I thought at the time just how odd such words would come from someone who's so big on Black pride, but quickly brushed the irony off because this guy Wright is not at all about Black pride, he's all about Black victimhood; he's been cashing in on it for years and is now retiring in luxury -- with all the trappings of the white "middleclassness" he warns his flock to avoid.
And if by some strange unexpected turn that motormouth Wright Should Be Mercifully (for Obama) Silent...., and folks start feeling withdrawal pangs, I agree with Tom over at Just One Minute that think we had a good story brewing with Obama's other friend, unrepentant Weatherman Bill Ayers, and we all need to hear more about him.
And let's not forget some of Obama's other disturbing friends ...
