Barack Obama’s book “Audacity of Hope” was titled after a sermon from his mentor, Jeremiah Wright. Mr. Wright’s congregation, is more about black empowerment than the saving grace of Jesus Christ. In any event, as I mentioned below, the media is trying desperately to avoid this story, but Fox, being a member of the VRWC, picked it up, and now Ben Smith is running a video clip too.
I love the part where he talks about Jesus being a black man put down by rich white people a/k/a the Romans who were Italians who were Europeans ergo “White People.” Then of course there is his reference to “the US of KKK A.” Nice.
Ladies and gentlemen, let’s not gloss over this fact: This man is Barack Obama’s mentor. And what does Barack Obama say?
Obama defended Wright’s longtime activism for blacks in America last week at a campaign event in Ohio.
“Jeremiah Wright … has said some things that are considered controversial because he’s considered that part of his social gospel,” Obama said.
I don’t remember Jesus playing the race card.
