A few stories on Rev. Jeremiah Wright & Barack Obama

Uncle Jeremiah
Barack Obama and his cookie-cutter race huckster.
By Mark Steyn
The Reverend Jeremiah Wright thinks that, given their treatment by white America, black Americans have no reason to sing “God Bless America.” “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,” he told his congregation. “God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human.”

The Dishonesty of Hope
Obama has risen on his words, and will be hard-pressed to talk his way out of this one.

Obama Rejects Anti-U.S. Sermons From Pastor Who Was ‘Like an Uncle’
Barack Obama describes longtime pastor Jeremiah Wright Jr. as “like an uncle” and a spiritual mentor, but the presidential candidate rejected Wright’s fiery anti-U.S. and politically divisive sermons after days of mounting pressure to do so.

The crazy uncles in Obama's attic
Will the black nationalists and white lefties who pushed Obama up the political ladder in Chicago prove to be a liability to his White House run?
By Edward McClelland
March 18, 2008 CHICAGO -- We were all wrong about Barack Obama's exotic past.
The same folks who once whispered that B. Hussein Obama was a mole for radical Islam are now decrying his links to an even more anti-American cult: the United Church of Christ.

Obama and Jeremiah Wright: the sequel
By Charles Coulter, Kansas City Star Editorial Board
Bill O'Reilly was kind enough to invite me on "The O'Reilly Factor" to discuss my post from Monday that generated so much heat.
His basic question for me was why should Barack Obama, a sitting U.S. senator, empower the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and his controversial comments by attending Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago?

Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama and the Unacceptability of Truth
Of National Lies and Racial America
For most white folks, indignation just doesn't wear well. Once affected or conjured up, it reminds one of a pudgy man, wearing a tie that may well have fit him when he was fifty pounds lighter, but which now cuts off somewhere above his navel and makes him look like an idiot.
Indignation doesn't work for most whites, because having remained sanguine about, silent during, indeed often supportive of so much injustice over the years in this country--the theft of native land and genocide of indigenous persons, and the enslavement of Africans being only two of the best examples--we are just a bit late to get into the game of moral rectitude. And once we enter it, our efforts at righteousness tend to fail the test of sincerity.

More From Obama's Pastor: U.S. a Racist Superpower
Obama Calls Pastor's Remarks 'Divisive' But Says Rev. Wright Is Like Family
In a harsh condemnation of his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Sen. Barack Obama said Rev. Wright used "incendiary language to express views that have the potential not only to widen the racial divide but views that denigrate both the greatness and the goodness of our nation; that rightly offend white and blacks alike."

God Damn The New York Times On Barack Obama And Jeremiah Wright
THE New York Times is All The News That’s Fit To Print. So it says.
Byron York looks at the NYT and tries to spot any mention of Barack Obama’s spirutal guide Jeremiah Wright’s conspiracy issues:
Speaking of “God damn America,” if you read only the New York Times — if that were your only source of news — you might not even know that Wright had uttered those words. A Nexis search shows that the only place Rev. Wright’s “God damn America” proclamation has been reported in the Times was in Bill Kristol’s column yesterday.
