OBAMA: In times of economic scarcity, ahm, generally, ahh, the politicians in this country, right now, ahh, want to look for scapegoats, want to organize around race, as opposed to around principle, and around values, ahh, and I think that's a mistake, and I think that can be countered, but it's gonna require the kinds of grassroots mobilization, ahh, and, and the kinds of work at a local level that I think, ahh, I talk about a lot in, in those chapters on Chicago.
INTERVIEWER: Wonderful man there, Reverend Wright?
OBAMA: Right! [ED: WRIGHT ?!?] And...
OBAMA: ...ahh, who is, who is, ahh, my pastor, and, ahh, he is a wonderful man, and I think it, ahh, that's an example of, ahh, he's a pastor of a, of a large congregation in Chicago, and one of the interesting things that I discovered in my journey to discover...
OBAMA: ...what my identity is, and who my father is, is also discovering sort of, ahh, my own faith, which, which is not, ahh, necessarily a traditional faith - I don't come out of an institutionalized religious setting, but, ahh, ahh, what becomes important to me is I work with, ahh, churches in...
OBAMA: ...the South Side of Chicago in low income neighborhoods, ahh, is to realize that, you know, all the stories and songs of the church, ahh, you know that, that, the hope that is embodied...
OBAMA: ...in the church, that, that the sense of, of, of, of liberation that is embodied in the African-Am, historically African-American church, ahh, is really something that, that, that moves me deeply, and I think ahh, ahh, is probably the main pillar around which a lot of inner cities', ahh, communities are going to be built, and Reverend Wright ahh, ahh, my pastor who, I, I speak about in the chapter in the book, I think represents the best of what, ah, The Black Church has to offer.
Politics aside, Obama is damaged goods. All of this mental masturbation over his awol father?!
“What is this non-traditional faith which he has discovered for himself?”
Black Liberation Theology.
“I attended a black church in the last couple of years, and it was nothing like Rev. Wright’s/Obamas’s church. There was no hate spewing from the pulpit at the church I attended. “
I think the point is that Barack thinks Rev Wright is “the best” of what the black church has to offer, when he really is among the worst.
It would be like me saying Fred Phelps is the best of what the white church has to offer.
It shows how radical he is.
For what it’s worth, I have attended many black church services (my sister-in-law is black). While the church was obviously Dem leaning, they weren’t anything like Rev Wright’s church.
In a stammering, non-answer sort of way, he just advocated black liberation theology, while at the same time, disavowed traditional Christianity.
My husband and 3 sons are black... if they went to that church, I would be scared for my life!
Good job finding this? Too bad it will not be seen on national TV. Liberation theology is closely related to communism.
0bama: "Reverend Wright, he is a wonderful man."
Tell your family, tell your friends, tell your neighbors, tell anyone who will listen:
In a stammering, non-answer sort of way, he just advocated black liberation theology, while at the same time, he disavowed traditional Christianity.
send this to hannity...
this should be played on tv... ABC? CBS? NBC? where are they?? /s
O'REILLY: How many times did you go to church a month?
OBAMA: You know, I probably go twice a month sometimes.
twice a month for 20 years comes out to 240 times.
Wright is key to defeating Obama.
I posted it to eons. Lots of sr's there. Morris said today that 11% of sr's have turned for Obama on Social Security issues.
Beating BO is just the start.
If nothing else, this whole ordeal had better have opened up the eyes of a lot of people, who then need to flush this whole nest of vipers out of our country.
ACORN, BO, Wrong-way Wright, Ayers, and all these assorted scum have been flourishing for many years. Calypso Louie and the NOI used to routinely fill up the LA Forum, DC Convention Center, Cobo Hall in Detroit, and lots of other PUBLIC venues to spout their poison. Do you think those braying, capering, gibbering jackasses in the pews cheering on Wright started doing that a couple of days ago? Or they’re the only ones doing it?
Time to shut them down and ensure that the danger to our country is fixed. No more Mr. nice guy.
E-mail this to everyone you know... ASAP!
Now that we know that Obama's closest associates are Marxists, and that his self-described "spiritual mentor" is a disciple of Liberation Theology, the meaning of these words becomes crystal clear.
I wish someone would take that video above of Obama and add the Wright video right to it into one video! That would really add the Wright comments following Obama’s statement that “Reverend Wright represents the best of what The Black Church has to offer.” Please, someone do that if you can!!
Don't promote the "Black Legend" of the Spanish Inquisition. Even most atheistic scholars don't believe it anymore.
16 Diggs right now.
This is the time to stop this nihilist SOB and his murderous friends before they get their hands on the nuclear football.
GET OUT THE WORD.
Agreed. I felt as much love at the church I attended as I feel at my own church. I did not ever feel out of place. Wonderful church.
