CNN's Soledad: Rev. Wright Speech a 'Home-Run'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 04/28/2008 5:14:38 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Were they commenting on the same speech? Rev. Jeremiah Wright goes before the Detroit NAACP, claims that black and white children learn with different parts of their brain, and offers a simpering, unflattering imitation of the way white pastors speak. CNN's Soledad O'Brien gushes that the speech was a "home run" and "really funny." But over at Morning Joe, Wright's words prompted a panel member to call the reverend a "mediocrity" and a "buffoon."

LOL, kind of like Obama’s speech on race was touted as the greatest of all time. How stupid liberals must think we are. There was nothing rememberable about Obama’s speech except that he admitted he was a liar and would do anything to cover his butt.

The madman is also an idiot.

“Baraq HUSSEIN Obama!
Baraq HUSSEIN Obama!
Baraq HUSSEIN Obama!”
-Rev. Jeremiah Wright
Will be in sound bite ads and on billboards throughout the campaign.

He also made fun of LBJ and JFK’s manner of speech.

He also gave a litany of how this group thinks that group is deficient because they are different. But when he came to Whites think Blacks are deficient, HE STUDIOUSLY AVOIDED SAYING Blacks think whites are deficient. What a charlatan.

Catch Little People, Big World on Saturdays 8/7c

http://tlc.discovery.com/fansites/lpbw/lpbw.html

http://tlc.discovery.com/fansites/lpbw/about.html?clik=netmain_feat1

In Little People, Big World, viewers look into the lives of the Roloffs as they face the pressure of being little in an average-sized world and the financial burdens of operating Roloff Farms.

The Roloffs’ accomplishments belie a hard truth: for little people, every day is a challenge. Driving a car, seeing over the counter at a bank or even making a simple trip to the grocery store can quickly become a test in a world that wasn’t made for them.

.
Reverend Wright should watch the new season of Little People Big World and stop belly-aching.

WILLIE GEIST: Tucker, with all due respect to the Reverend, what the hell is he talking about?

TUCKER CARLSON: What a mediocrity! I mean, that's the embarrassing thing here. It's not just that he's anti-white and anti-American, all the things that have gotten so much publicity. It's this guy has been held up by Barack Obama as some deep theologian, as his spiritual mentor! And he's kind of buffoon.


I like Tucker's spin that Wright, Barrack's mentor, is nuts.

I wouldn't know Soledad O'Brien if I ran over her.

I don't want to know Ms. O"Brien. Even beyond the idiocy of being a liberal, she sets the bar high for surpassing her stupidity.

Duh, after all the Rev. Wright's real histrionics have been out, I bet Obama's and, the DNC people vetted the speech three-fold beyond what the pre-speech scrutiny the State of the Union Speech gets.

I guess Soledad agrees with Rev. Wright, we should go back to a "segregated" education system. Instead of being a "white" school, and a "colored" school, it will be "left brain"schools, and "right brain" schools.

Rev. Wright is a dangerous man.

Watching the Wright speech to the NAACP in Detroit now. What I find striking is that Wright is emphasizing the difference between blacks and whites in very inane ways. Blacks have been in this country since the 1600's. He is defending their failure to speak English properly. It is cultural and regional according to Wright. It sounds like Eubonics is making a comeback.

It will be interesting to compare the Wright speech today at the National Press Club to yesterday's speech in Detroit. I wonder if he will change his delivery and pronunciation along with the substance. In any event, he is hawking a book, which is part of the reason for the current tour, along with trying to reshape his image to help Obama.

Yes, once more Soli-I-Know-Who-is-My-Daddy comes across as an unbiased journalist!

Live on CNN, Rev Wright just said any criticism of his words are criticism of the Black Church. Next, Rev Wright will feed all at the National Press Club with 5 barley loaves and two fish.

I'm glad newsbusters is at it: The silence surrounding Mr. Wright's speech last night is near deafening. And yes, I know what this means. It means that people are yet pulling their thoughts together about what they witnessed last night.

Referring to Rv Wright as a buffoon makes light of the man. There is nothing to make light of. This is a man with a serious hate-on. And for 20 years he was mentor to a Presidential Candidate hopeful.

The NAACP is by association also hate-filled. Every time I see a photo of Rev Wright I think "halitosis"; the kind which comes from a sick soul. Sulphur, as Hugo Chavez might say.

Rev Wright and those who think like he does deserve to be shunned, condemned by any civil society.

His puny ugly soul is the icon of the hateful black racialists here and internationally. But of course, racialist blacks don't get it: They are just like him.

Writing him off as a mere quack, a buffoon, protects bigots like Rev Wright.

In the name of all that is equal, he should be forced by Mo Dees ad nauseum to sell his multi-million dollar mansion and donate the proceeds to "whites" who feel harmed, injured, insulted by his discourse.

Rev Wright would encourage whites and Europeans to be more right brained and "subjectivity".

I say, let's get to it.

Every single white conservative, republican politician who felt "harmed" by the hate spewed by Rev Wright needs to take a bloody stand and right quick.

Rev Wright says "non-blacks" (more specifically whites) "objectify." Well, then, weren't whites objectified by the subjective thinking Rev Wright.

The two faces of racial hatred are seen in Rev Wright and his apostle, Barack Obama.

And every time anyone gets accused of being a racist for disagreeing with Rev Wright -- the response shall be "I shall not be shut up by the likes of a bigot, you".

The pedagogy Rev Wright expresses is a metaphysic lynch.

Some people have been made to fear the "racial bogeyman" all their lives (exhibit: Soledad O'Brian) but have never actually seen one. They've heard about "evidence of racism" but never actually seen racism. That's why Soledad, for example, couldn't identify a racist last night. She doesn't even know what one sounds like. A racist was on display last night in full blown ugliness. And she applauded the Beetlejuice, like that actress clapping her hands when Beetlejuice barks out "Okay K-Mart shoppers...".

Black racialists have been demanding proofs for the pedigree of Blackness in a person constitutes "black". Just ask National Association of Scholars who've been tracking this movement over the past 10 years. Unless you are *REALLY* black, you shouldn't get a scholarship.

Just ask the jerks in CA who fought Ward Connerly's Proposition 54.

And lastly, to all people of mixed blood. Unless you are "pure T" black, it's gonna hurt. Nonetheless, in the black racialist world, you are useful to the cause; but in the end you'll treated as a blob like whites. Why? Not pure enough.

Welcome to the black liberation theology. Borne in South America. Think Hugo Chavez and his theft and taking over of private companies. Check it out.

Obama's is the face shown to the populace -- their "black man getting along with": Rev Wright's is what underlies the Obama face.

It's easy to spot a black racialist in person - it's in their eyes. There's a shadow.

That was an ogre I saw last night. Not a reverend.

I’m really pretty much off of all Obamassein threads because he’ll just be a footnote in a few months. It would be good entertainment if Obamassein did somehow end up POTUS, but he isn’t even going to get the nomination.

Thanks, in great part, to the Reverend. And what I saw of the “speech” was funny in a fall-off-the-balcony-hit-your-head-on-the-pavement kind of way. The way he made fun of JFK, with his little imitation, was just so sad, as he pointed out how JFK pronounced “ask”, all nasaly-like; inadvertantly pointing out that so many blacks still say AX. Keep talkin’ Rev.

They don’t speak English because they don’t want to. They’re told it’s a “white man’s language”. They’ve been told that since the 1960’s. When you immerse a society in leftist crap, it’s going to have an effect.

Don’t agree. Her negatives are above 50%. Bubba never got more than, what 48%?

Combine that with that if HRC gets the nom, droves and droves of black DEMS will probably stay away or vote GOP, and there is no “viable” third party, McCain’s chances are better than good.

Although, it appears that running against Barrack Wright would be McGovern-esque.

With all the positive press coverage she’s been getting, I think her negatives have come down a bit. The media went from one extreme to the other. They are all in love with her right now. I worry about our military having to serve under her. She’s not worthy of being the Commander-in-Chief. McCain may be awful on domestic issues but he has more than earned the right to lead the military.
