Obama’s chutzpah—does the man think he can get away with this?
Be sure to read the American Thinker’s line-by-line breakdown of Barack Obama’s biggest-lie-ever official statement claiming that he never heard or agreed with the anti-American, anti-white effusions that have been pouring forth from his pastor Jeremiah Wright for the last 20 years. Also note AT’s quote of a NewsMax story from August 2007 by a reporter who attended Trinity Church and saw the following:
Wright laced into America’s establishment, blaming the “white arrogance” of America’s Caucasian majority for the woes of the world, especially the oppression suffered by blacks. To underscore the point he refers to the country as the “United States of White America.” Many in the congregation, including Obama, nodded in apparent agreement as these statements were made.I also reference the AT article here, concerning Obama’s statement that he never heard Wright say these things when he, Obama, was sitting in a pew.
Update: As Daniel Pipes points out, when Jeremiah Wright declared after the 9/11 attack that America was a terrorist country and that “America’s chickens are coming home to roost,” he was actually drawing on Malcolm X’s infamous statement on December 1, 1963 that the assassination of President Kennedy was America’s “chickens coming home to roost,” and that the event made him “glad.” Shortly afterward, Malcolm X explained his remarks to interviewer Louis Lomax:
I meant that the death of Kennedy was the result of a long line of violent acts, the culmination of hate and suspicion and doubt in this country. You see, Lomax, this country has allowed white people to kill and brutalize those they don’t like. The assassination of Kennedy is a result of that way of life and thinking. The chickens came home to roost; that’s all there is to it. America—at the death of the President—just reaped what it had been sowing.Malcolm X hated America, and wished it harm. Jeremiah Wright hates America, and wishes it harm. And Barack Obama has sat in Wright’s church for the last 20 years, affably nodding in agreement at Wright’s hate-laced sermons.
But to keep things in perspective, let us not forget: As shown by the totality of his statements and positions, John McCain hates white America, and he doesn’t just wish it harm—he wants it to come to an end. And unlike Barack Obama, he doesn’t even pretend to be nice.
