Another racist rant from Jeremiah Wright
Even thought Wright has been declared out of bounds by the press, the Democrats, and Mitt Romney, we should continue to highlight this man's thinking if only because he was so close to President Obama for two decades.
Yesterday, he was in Washington, D.C. giving a sermon at the historic Florida Avenue Baptist Church when the good Reverend let down his hair and spewed hate from the pulpit.
Speaking at Washington's Florida Avenue Baptist Church, which marks its 100th anniversary this week, Wright urged parishioners to teach their children true African-American history and not to cede their educations to "our enemies" who teach "his story," one that "distorts our story, disses our story."
Children may "only know Oprah and Obama," he said, so it's up to elders to teach about Nat Turner, Emmett Till, Rosa Parks, Paul Robeson, Zora Neale Hurston and other black voices.
"We need to tell our children ... how we got from a black congressman named Adam Clayton Powell to a black president named Barack Hussein Obama," he said to applause. "But we also need to tell them how we have black politicians who steal money."
Wright also blasted people who he described as "biscuits" and "sheep dogs" - African Americans raised in the white world.
"Take that baby, him or her away, from the African mother, away from the African community, away from the African experience ... and put them Africans over at the breasts of Yale, Harvard, University of Chicago ... UCLA or UC-Berkeley," he said. "Turn them into biscuits. Let them get that alien DNA all up inside their brain and they will turn on their own people in defense of the ones who are keeping their own people under oppression. Sheep dogs."
"There's white racist DNA running through the synapses of his or her brain tissue. They will kill their own kind, defend the enemies of their kind or anyone who is perceived to be the enemy of the milky white way of life."
The press will barely touch the guy because they're afraid of the backlash from people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. But the question remains; why can't we discuss Obama's close relationship with a man who believes that all whites are evil and promotes a separatist philosophy for African Americans? Doesn't the fact that he spent 20 years listening to this toxic waste say something vitally important about his judgment? And can you imagine if Mitt Romney had attended a church for 20 years that spewed race hatred and then hired the preacher for his presidential campaign?
Wright is unfinished business from the 2008 campaign - and will probably remain so.
