Presidential candidate Barack Obama preaches on the campaign trail that America needs a new consensus based on faith and bipartisanship, yet he continues to attend a controversial Chicago church whose pastor routinely refers to "white arrogance" and "the United States of White America."
In fact, Obama was in attendance at the church when these statements were made on July 22. .....

3:00 pm in FL is 2:00 pm in Chicago. There’s an extra hour. Perfectly doable.
Where is the video. Can we obtain the video and see if we can see Obama ?
If they could get him nodding in agreement to what this guy is saying along with the rest of the crowd then he would be down for the count IMHO.
The author claims that Obama was in the morning service which by the way was not given by Wright. Please see post 300.
I did see Barack Obama that day. I said so in the article, and I’m saying so now.
I’m pretty sure they have their service times switched around on their website. If I recall correctly, Anthony Burnette gave the evening service that day (6:00 PM) and Jeremiah Wright gave the early morning service (7:30 AM).
Perhaps you can provide some insight on a question I’ve had running through my mind constantly for the last week.
As you and many of us have pointed out- all this information about Wright and Obama’s association with him has been “out there” for a year. It’s been written, blogged and published- many of us on FR were hollering about this months ago...and yet...
Why NOW? Why SUDDENLY as if by magic- is it all going mainstream? The standard answer- it’s Hillary’s minions- seems too easy.
How many people attend churches where they reject the sermons categorically?
You are actually right. At sports don’t they ask you to rise for the anthem. Hats should be removed I think.
The most obvious answer is generally the correct answer.
Normally- I’d agree. But the problem I have with that is how clear it’s been the MSM has strongly supported Obama. It seems unlikely they would suddenly obey her requests to get this story more front and center. My sense was they were really enjoying watching her decline..and in many cases, actively promoted it.
Someone has some ‘splainin to do?

>>> I don’t place my hand over my heart for the Star Spangled Banner. But I do for the Pledge of Allegiance. I think that is pretty much the norm. Since this was the during the singing of the Star Spangled Banner I don’t see why it is such a big deal.
Am I missing something here?
Yep, and you are not alone, I ran into this at the Jersey shore last year. It is a sign of respect that when the SSB is played you rise, men remove the caps, and face the flag. Then if one has a cap or with bare hand should be placed over the heart.
Wildwood NJ played the SSB last year as we were walking up the boardwalk. A flag was presented as the music played. My wife and I came to a stop and did the above. I was amazed and angered that people 1.didn’t know the protocol or 2. Did not care.
It is considered disrespectful to ignore the presentation of the colors and the playing of the anthem.
Didn’t know it was US Code. Thanks for posting that. Nice graphic!
The media has been suppressing this for a long time, the divisiveness of Rev. Wright has been known from the beginning.
The only thing which has changed, the only reason why this is being brought out now by the media, is the Clintons.
From a conservative standpoint, this is the beautiful thing about the 50/50 split of the left between Hillary (who wants to be the first female president) and Obama (who wants to be the first black president). Both of them have lots of friends in the mainstream news media. The news media is not some sort of monolithic hive mind where everybody thinks the same way on each and every issue, and we're seeing an example of that right now. Half of them want Hillary to be president, and the other half want Obama to be president.
So when Hillary wants everybody to see some dirt on Obama, Hillary's minions go to their friends in the media.
And when Obama wants everybody to see spome dirt on Hillary, Obama's minions go to their own friends in the media.
And all conservatives have to do is unfold some lawnchairs, pop some popcorn and watch the fireworks.
Because on national TV he told millions of Americans he was not there. If he was, he needs to be forced to eat those words.
Well, you better find out for sure. If what you're stating about seeing Obama being at one of these WRIGHT sermons is indeed a fact, then Obama is wrong and needs to explain himself.
