Video: Jeremiah Wright at National Press Club [updated with link to transcript]

April 28, 2008

The cocky rooster puffing up his chest & strutting his stuff.

Link to transcript.

A blustering hateful race baiting fool. What a narcissistic show boat. A pompous ass if I ever seen one.

Is Wright is trying to sabotage Obama’s campaign and chance at the presidency? It sure sounds like it. Perhaps Wright does not want Obama take his bread and butter away. He banks on a ‘white racist America’. Would a white racist America elect a Black president?
He can’t have that. No no no.

Or maybe Wright doesn’t give a lick. He soon will be all comfy cozy sitting up in his million dollar crib. Thanks to the hate he spews he has done very well for himself.

“This is not an attack on Jeremiah Wright,” the minister said. “It is an attack on the black church.” He positioned himself as a mainstream voice of African American religious traditions. “Why am I speaking out now?” he asked.
“In our community there is something called the dozens. You think I’m going to let you talk about my mama and her religious traditions, and about my daddy and his religious traditions?” he asked. “You’ve got another think coming.”

No Jeremiah you have another think coming! This is not about the black church. This is about you and your theology. Your hateful twisted racist vision of America. Now unless your mama and daddy followed your theology then they are not the target. But..if they had then they deserve criticism as well! But this is ABOUT YOU. What you have done is to insult all black church’s in your feeble ignorant attempt to lump them all together with yours. All black church’s are NOT like yours! All black preachers do not spew politically infused divisive malignant sermons as you do.

You are a vile excuse for an American, a man of faith, a human being and member of your race!

“Britain has apologized to Africans. But this country’s leaders have refused to apologize. So until that apology comes, I’m not going to keep stepping on your foot and asking you, does this hurt, do you forgive me for stepping on your foot, if I’m still stepping on your foot. Understand that? Capisce?”

Demanding an apology is not the way to receive an apology. Why must anyone apologize? Does Wright apologize for his vitriol? No. And he does not think he should.

You know some blacks have moved on, but then again they did not decide to engineer the victim gravy train. They must be above that nonsense. Wright on the other hand has lowered himself to prey on the vulnerable. A disgusting example of a preacher. Note: I do not refer to him as Reverend in the title. I do not ever intend to either. He is a race baiting hate mongering profiteer. Not a preacher in my eyes. The same goes for Farrakhan. Minister? Give me a break.

Reverend Wright Wants An Apology – GM Roper

So, just to shut him up, I’ll officially apologize on behalf of the United States.

Dear Reverend Wright, I would like to take this time to offer to you, an esteemed preacher of the gospel my sincerest apology. I apologize for having been born white and for being related to other white folk. I apologize for my ancestors that owned slaves even if I don’t know of any. I apologize abjectly that African Blacks and African Muslims captured a number of other African Blacks and sold them into slavery. I apologize from the bottom of my heart that people that I didn’t know enslaved people that you didn’t know from a country that you have never lived in brought ancestors that you never met to a country that has given more people freedom to say the things that you like to say and give them the full backing of the constitution to say them. And I’m most sincerely sorry that you are such an idiot and such a bombastic stuffed shirt who has made so much money that you have chosen to live in the upper reaches of middleclassness.


GM Roper

Right on!

FoxNews is reporting that Wright has been provided security from none other than the Nation of Islam.
Correction: Fox News reports American Urban Radio Network has reported Wright has been provided security by the Nation Of Islam.

Wright’s people have denied the NOI security and have claimed instead a Washington area church provided bodyguards.
No word from the supposed church
Dana Milbank – Washington Post blog

[…]a member of the head table, American Urban Radio’s April Ryan, confirmed that Wright’s security was provided by bodyguards from Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam.

Wright on Farrakhan:

one of the most important voices in the 20th and 21st century,” noting the Million Man March. “When Louis Farrakhan speaks, it’s like when E.F. Hutton speaks…Black America listens. Whether they agree with him or not, they listen,”“Louis Farrakhan is not my enemy. He didn’t enslave me. He didn’t put me in chains. And he didn’t make me this color.”

True. God did. Is he a racist too? Is he the white mans racist white God?

Soooo…if Farrakhan is not Wright’s enemy. Then they must be buds, after all the NOI is handling the bodyguard detail for Wright. Heh. Just sayin’

What is Farrakhan’s views on race relations in the US…?
Is “Black America listen”(ing)?
How does Wright feel about Farrakhan’s demands as published on the Nation Of Islam website?
Two very similar peas in a pod?
The Nation of Islam

What The Muslims Want
This is the question asked most frequently by both the whites and the blacks. The answers to this question I shall state as simply as possible.

1. We want freedom. We want a full and complete freedom.

2. We want justice. Equal justice under the law. We want justice applied equally to all, regardless of creed or class or color.

3. We want equality of opportunity. We want equal membership in society with the best in civilized society.

4. We want our people in America whose parents or grandparents were descendants from slaves, to be allowed to establish a separate state or territory of their own–either on this continent or elsewhere. We believe that our former slave masters are obligated to provide such land and that the area must be fertile and minerally rich. We believe that our former slave masters are obligated to maintain and supply our needs in this separate territory for the next 20 to 25 years–until we are able to produce and supply our own needs.
Since we cannot get along with them in peace and equality, after giving them 400 years of our sweat and blood and receiving in return some of the worst treatment human beings have ever experienced, we believe our contributions to this land and the suffering forced upon us by white America, justifies our demand for complete separation in a state or territory of our own

5. We want freedom for all Believers of Islam now held in federal prisons. We want freedom for all black men and women now under death sentence in innumerable prisons in the North as well as the South.

We want every black man and woman to have the freedom to accept or reject being separated from the slave master’s children and establish a land of their own.

We know that the above plan for the solution of the black and white conflict is the best and only answer to the problem between two people.

6. We want an immediate end to the police brutality and mob attacks against the so-called Negro throughout the United States.

We believe that the Federal government should intercede to see that black men and women tried in white courts receive justice in accordance with the laws of the land–or allow us to build a new nation for ourselves, dedicated to justice, freedom and liberty.

7. As long as we are not allowed to establish a state or territory of our own, we demand not only equal justice under the laws of the United States, but equal employment opportunities- NOW!

We do not believe that after 400 years of free or nearly free labor, sweat and blood, which has helped America become rich and powerful, so many thousands of black people should have to subsist on relief or charity or live in poor houses.

8. We want the government of the United States to exempt our people from ALL taxation as long as we are deprived of equal justice under the laws of the land.

9. We want equal education–but separate schools up to 16 for boys and 18 for girls on the condition that the girls be sent to women’s colleges and universities. We want all black children educated, taught and trained by their own teachers.

Under such schooling system we believe we will make a better nation of people. The United States government should provide, free, all necessary text books and equipment, schools and college buildings. The Muslim teachers shall be left free to teach and train their people in the way of righteousness, decency and self respect.

10. We believe that intermarriage or race mixing should be prohibited. We want the religion of Islam taught without hinderance or suppression.

These are some of the things that we, the Muslims, want for our people in North America

We have all heard of reparations. But those demands take the entitlement cake! Sure Farrakhan we’ll get right on it. When hell freezes over. I hope you aren’t in to big of a hurry.

    I wrote on this today as well…

    I was completely stunned by what was said – and then stunned again by how the media is handling it…

    So badly – I felt compelled to do an analysis…
    Deciphering Racism, Elitism, Marxism, and Socialism, in Rev. Wright’s Speech before the National Press Club

    It’s truly ridiculous…

    There is bamboolizng going on alright…

    I don’t know – this may be the torpedo that sinks the SS Obama…

    As you point out in your article

    Put simply – Black Liberation Theology is the fusing of “black power” with “Christianity.”

    Wright claims he is no politician…

    I am not a politician,’ the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. says … I am not running for the Oval Office.

    Au! Contra-ire! Wright is indeed a politician. His theology ‘Black Liberation Theology’ is political to the bone. Spoken from the pulpit of a supposed church of God.
    Something to chew on:
    If White power = white supremacy.

    Does Black power = black supremacy?

    If White Pride = racism

    Does black pride = racism

    Black Separatist. Black Nationalist. Political!
    Wight claims to be a prophetic preacher. Ha! Not hardly. More like a political cog in the political arm of Black Liberation Theology.

    One could draw a parallel between BLT and Islam. Political in their intent, religion as their cover.
