Obama opens a can of worms (Barfer! Obama is an Uncle Tom for Denouncing Wright)
Chicago Sun-Times ^ | 4/30/2008 | Mary Mitchell

Posted on 04/30/2008 1:40:36 PM PDT by mojito

Well, it is likely that Sen. Barack Obama won't be going back to Trinity United Church of Christ.

Not after this.

On Tuesday, Obama responded to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's ill-timed defense by condemning his former pastor's fresh comments as "ridiculous," "outrageous" and "appalling."

"When he states and then amplifies such ridiculous proposition as the U.S. government somehow being involved in AIDS, when he suggests that Minister Farrakhan somehow represents one of the greatest voices in the 20th and 21st century, when he equates the United States wartime effort with terrorism, then there are no excuses," Obama said during a press conference.

"They offend me. They rightfully offend all Americans and they should be denounced," Obama said.

This is a sad day for Black America.

At a time when African Americans are on the cusp of watching a barrier come crashing down, up jumps a divisive issue that is being driven by those outside of the black community.

Obviously, Wright's timing for a press conference about his sermons couldn't have been worse.

Still, when Obama says he is "offended" by Wright's latest comments -- given in defense against an orchestrated assault on his character and on his ministry -- he's opening up a can of worms.

There is no institution in the black community more respected than the black church. And the notion that white pundits can dictate what constitutes unacceptable speech in the black church is repulsive to most black people.

Even so, after Wright's fiery speeches surfaced on the Internet, most African Americans understood why Obama had to distance himself from Wright.

Obama's cross-cultural appeal, which, by the way, made some blacks suspicious of him early in his campaign, is largely because of his ability to make white people feel comfortable with his blackness.

But Wright speaks to a different audience, and that audience has been supportive throughout his ordeal.

On Monday, for instance, when Wright spoke at the National Press Club, the predominantly black crowd cheered, clapped and punctuated Wright's speech with shouts of "amen."

So, when Obama says America was "offended" by Wright's harsh language, he isn't speaking for or to Black America. He is speaking to White America.

As much as I want to see Obama make history by becoming the first black man to be elected president, I don't want to see a warrior like Wright denigrated to prove to white voters that Obama is not a radical.

When Obama denounced Wright's angry words but refused to disown him, it signaled that he understood the sensitive tightrope he is being forced to walk.

His "outrage" over Wright's latest remarks signals something quite different. With the gap narrowing, Obama advisers are obviously scrambling for every white vote.

But really, what more should blacks have to sacrifice? Their dignity?

Frankly, Obama and Wright risk becoming metaphors for the ongoing struggle of blacks to unite politically.

Obama shouldn't have held a press conference to deal with Wright.

He should have been able to pick up the phone.

Obamessiah is so finished. Whites don't trust him because he sat for 20 years in a Kill Whitey church. Blacks don't trust him because he just denounced his 20 year association with his Kill Whitey pastor. The Dems are imploding. And I'm laughing.

I thought those were just 'snippets' taken 'out of context'. Now they are inexcusable, but you excused them two weeks ago! And the media won't call him on it.

I'm glad Obama had the integrity to denounce the ridiculous AIDS lie that the Wracist Wreverend Wright has been peddling.

I certainly don't intend to vote for him, but for the first time, he is starting to sound presidential to me.

Note to Mary Mitchell - 'Race' doesn't justify perpetrating such insulting (to anybody's intelligence) lies that the US Government is 'out' to make them sick or high on drugs.

This is why he was tap dancing around dumping Wright. 90% of blacks were voting for him and keeping him ahead. No he has angered them and the white racist democrats won’t vote for him anyway.

There is no institution in the black community more respected than the black church.

Past tense. Not "is", but "was"...
When Mr. Wright said what he said, and it was declared to be standard fare amongst 'black churches' I was shocked and disappointed.
This isn't a church, it is a racial club.
And besides, there is no such thing as a "black" church. Or a "white" church. Or brown, or yellow, or whatever.
A church is for all sinners who desire repentance and to worship the LORD.
A pox on these people who turn it into a house of division rather than a House of Prayer and Worship.

After reading several excerpts from two of his books that were posted on another thread I don’t have any feelings but contempt for this man. If the excerpts I read are accurate, I can only surmise that Obama believes the same things that Wright does regarding “White America” and Israelis.

Disclaimer: I am not going to vote for Obama nor do I wish anyone to do so. That said...

This is good that some are calling him an 'Uncle Tom' simply because it does illustrate the old black playbook of Je$$e, $harpton, and Farrahakahn; call any black who disagrees an 'Uncle Tom'. This is straight from the 60s and it might eventually open some eyes to the typical, and shallow, thinking that democrats have been wanting blacks to do for the past forty years or so. If Obama played this right he could point that out to his young generation of sycophants.

Yet, never forget, if a White reverend said the sames things as Wright in a White church, reversing it to be anti-Negro, you can bet your bottom dollar that the Black pundits, MSM and their Liberal Democrat allies would have apoplexy to the max! There would be a public lynching for all hands at the White church.

It is so refreshing, after so many years of being force fed that only us typical White folks can be racist, it is nice to see the hypocrites where they live!!!!

I think you're spot on: Michelle will go off. I have this gut-feeling that Obama’s long association with Wright and Trinity United is really Michelle's idea. I think she completely buys into the paranoia and victimization that passes for Christian faith at that church.

It gets even better.

A source close to the Wright ministry is also talking. Here's what that source said in the New York Post today:

The source noted that the roots of Wright's disillusionment with Obama began last year after the Illinois senator unexpectedly yanked him from participating in the public announcement of his presidential campaign.

"That's why Jeremiah revealed . . . that he had actually been at the [announcement] hotel and prayed privately with the Obama family before the official declaration," the source told The Post.

"Rev. Wright, as well as other senior members of his church, believe that Obama has betrayed over 20 years of their supposed friendship."

Obama further angered Wright by trying to distance himself from the pastor ever since videos were made public earlier this year of the preacher alleging that America brought 9/11 upon itself and that people should say "God damn America," not "God bless America."

The source added, "After 20 years of loving Barack like he is one of their own, after he was embraced by this congregation as a brother in Christ, after his pastor was a father figure to him and gave him credibility in a city he had not grown up in and in a black community that was suspect of someone from Hawaii and Harvard, he thanks him by not allowing him to speak publicly at his announcement last year?

"A lot of people in the church believe they were there for this man when no one else was, and a lot of people don't believe it any more when Obama claims he loves the man who did so much for him," the source added.
Whole lot of chickens...coming home to roost.

Not the least of which is Obama's character (because Wright is saying that Obama did know about exactly who Wright was and therfore Obama lied to us all)...and also Obama's judgement in this whole matter and in the matter of Ayers, Rezko, etc.

THE AUDACITY OF TRUTH - BLACK LIBERATION THEOLOGY AND OBAMA'S CHURCH

THE AUDACITY OF TRUTH - OBAMA'S CIRCLE OF FRIENDS AND SUPPORT

Jeremiah Wright is a half-wit. And half-wits are sometimes half right. What the media did by showing the DVD clips of Wright’s anti-American hate rants was two things. It revealed a hate mongering demagogue. It also revealed a hate filled congregation who danced and celebrated in the aisles when Jeremiah damned America. What the media did was not attack Jeremiah Wright or the black church. But it did reveal a hate mongering pastor feeding his hate filled church. In that sense, it was about more than ONE hate mongering loony Pastor.

That is not what was happening in this case. No one is dictating what can or can't be said in the "black church". One can say whatever they wish, just don't try to dictate who the rest of America votes for after they hear that kind of nonsense. Mary is saying because Obama has no character that "White America" is somehow dictating speech in the "black church". They can say what they want just don't expect my vote. Like Obama could have expected it anyway, heh.

I think certain black pastors and realized that they wouldn't have Obama in their pocket (I wonder if this was related to his reluctance to spread "walking around money" in Philadelphia) so I think we're seeing the first signs of them turning on him and if he doesn't fall in line, I suspect he'll be getting the Reverend Manning treatment from a few more people.

They are eating their own now. Some in the racial grievance industry will denounce Obama for messing up their lucrative schtick, others will be silent but agree with what Wright said. The ‘typical white person’, the one who ‘clings to guns and their religion’, the blue collar
reagan Democrat’, he understands full well by now what Obama and Wright are about. Obama’s tanking poll numbers in NC and Indy are all one needs to look at to see he is done, but hopefully not until he has the nomination.

Senator Obama will be back at Trinity. He will also remain friends with Reverend Wright. He has not claimed he is leaving either the church or ceasing his friendship with Pastor Wright.

Many are hearing what they want to hear, not what Senator Obama actually said. That was the purpose of his most recent speech.

Senator Obama needs that 92% Black Vote, the antiwar vote and far left Democrat vote. He has not, and will not, abandon any of these constituencies.

Not just black pundits and dems, white pundits and Republicans would be loud in their condemnation. The fact is there are white racist organizations that frequently masquerade as "Churchs", they're condemned by everyone and politically marginalized. A member or fellow traveler would go no where politically, other than on a very local level.

Agreed, you can’t have a “black” church and a “white” church. They are all the same church, or they should be. Perfect example of why “racism” is still rampant in the US. The black leaders want to keep it alive so they can milk the poor blacks for votes and money.

Unacceptable speech? This woman doesn't get it - notions like "unacceptable speech" aren't part of any nation that supports free speech. Rev. Wright is free to rant all the nonsense he wants and his followers are free to listen. And those who disagree with Wright's statements are free to respond, which is what is happening. Don't like it? Too bad - free speech isn't restricted to what happens outside of black churches.
