You Won’t Believe What Obama’s Pastor Says About Jesus
If a conservative made any of the statements Obama’s former pastor made the other day, they would be chased out of Washington D.C. and have no future in politics. However, when it’s a politically connected left-wing radical preacher, the rules don’t apply.
Reverend Jeremiah Wright was addressing the crowd during the recent million man march in Washington, D.C. when he made the shocking comments. According to The Blaze:
Not mentioning Israelis, he called Palestinians the “original people” — and then offered the crowd a reminder.
“Please remember, Jesus was a Palestinian,” Wright said.
He added that Palestinians are fighting against those who say “their god told them they could have somebody else’s country,” calling it “one of the most egregious injustices in the 20th and 21st centuries.”
Wright also said that youths in Ferguson, Missouri, and youths “in Palestine” have “united” and that blacks should join them.
Wright made headlines in 2008 after his sermons were examined and Barack Obama — then campaigning for the presidency — was forced to renounce his former pastor‘s controversial statements (e.g., “No, no, no, not God bless America! God damn America — that’s in the Bible — for killing innocent people.”)
After Obama’s election, Wright commented in 2009 that “them Jews” were keeping him from the new president. ”Them Jews ain’t going to let him talk to me,” Wright told the Daily Press of Newport News, Virginia. “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.”
You can watch his disgusting comments here:
Jeremiah Wright was Obama’s pastor for years in Chicago. He gives us an idea of the type of messages Obama went back to church repeatedly to hear. His rhetoric is divisive and hateful. He should be held to the same standards as any conservative who would make similar comments.
What do you think? Were the Pastor’s comments reasonable? Or should he be splashed across the media and called out for the divisive, bigoted person he is? Leave a comment with your thoughts below.
