Obama's anti-Semitic preacher resurfaces

President Obama's pastor for more than twenty years, Jeremiah Wright, is back in the news today with some more outrageous quotes given to the media. Both Gateway Pundit and Little Green Footballs link to this article in the Hampton (Virginia) Daily Press.
Asked if he had spoken to the President, Wright said: "Them Jews aren't going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter, that he'll talk to me in five years when he's a lame duck, or in eight years when he's out of office. ...

"They will not let him to talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is. ... I said from the beginning: He's a politician; I'm a pastor. He's got to do what politicians do."

Wright also said Obama should have sent a U.S. delegation to the World Conference on Racism held recently in Geneva, Switzerland, but that the president did not do so for fear of offending Jews and Israel.

"Ethic cleansing is going on in Gaza. Ethnic cleansing of the Zionist is a sin and a crime against humanity, and they don't want Barack talking like that because that's anti-Israel," Wright said.
Were it not for the fact that he was Obama's pastor, Wright could be dismissed as a kook - a dangerous kook but a kook all the same.

But the President sat and listened to sermons from this man for more than 20 years and never once even thought of leaving his church and finding a new one. Incredibly, the American people, including 78% of America's Jews ignored that and elected Obama President anyway.

Does anyone really think there is no connection between the anti-Semitism that Obama was spoon-fed in church for more than 20 years and the sharp anti-Israel turn that American foreign policy has taken since he assumed office? I didn't think so.


Comments from Allah here.

No I don't see a connection. Rev. Wright knows he's inflammatory, hates President Obama, and is getting the reaction that he wants: anti-Semetism allegations thrown at the President. Very easy to do when reactions will come swift and sure. Anti-Semetism is nasty and it permeates no matter what someone says. Obama is not, and never was, anti-Semetic. Rev. Wright is anti-Semetic. Obama used Rev. Wright's influence in the neighborhood for political support. Rev. Wright's using Obama's status to keep himself in the limelight. 'Nuff said.

I don't believe someone of Obama's stature could listen to the Rev. Wright's rantings for twenty years and not have it affect him. And there's credible reason to believe it has shaped how he views Jews and Israel. Only the most obdurate Obama defenders and apologists would deny the evident truth.

And the American Jewish community has been very good at wanting to ignore all the facts in front of them to be part of something historic, even if its detrimental to Jews and Israel in the long run.

Growing up, my family and I attended a reform synagogue in New York. Attending services on the High Holy Days and Bar Mitzvah study provided ample opportunity to get to know the Rabbi, his philosophical and political views. Had he presented sermons or issued statements about blacks or minorities the tenor of those of Wright, I can tell you that he would have been summarily dismissed by the Congregation or my parents would have left the synagogue posthaste.

Either Obama is an antisemite or he demonstrated extraordinarily bad judgment by remaining in the Church. In either case, he has no business leading the United States of America.

I grew up with former Black Panthers as parents. Uncles who were hardcore black nationalists. I heard every single anti-semetic phrase, sentence, and paragraph DAILY for years. And guess what? I'm fine without an anti-Semetic bone in my body. And it's 100 times harder to shake the words of parents and loved ones than a pastor at some church. Obama was an opportunist regarding Rev. Wright. Wright was his in-roads into the Black Democratic Establishment of Chicago. Obama rolled with him to get the support, street cred, and votes. Happens all the time (three times on Sunday). So Shy Guy, roll the "head in the sand" line on the Kos Kiddies. Cause I'm not one of them and don't play those games friend.

And FinanceDoc, Democracy "sucks" sometimes (especially for the losing side). But it beats living in Iran.
