Rev. Wright Unleashed: ‘White Supremacy’ Drives ‘World Policy’
The Blaze ^ | 4/9/2012 | Billy Hallowell

Posted on 04/09/2012 12:48:29 PM PDT by mojito

....As he spoke about race, Wright’s rhetoric intensified.

“I am in the text. Pilate was European…Jesus was not European. They live in a world shaped by European standards of beauty, shaped by Moynihan studies, shaped by bell curves — they live in a different world from your world all together,” he told the audience. “They are ignorant and arrogant and these are graduates of Harvard and Yale setting policies over you based on the stupidity of David Hume…Voltaire, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Thomas Jefferson — a pedophile — Theodore Roosevelt and a racist Supreme Court.”

But he wasn’t done there.

“The ignorance and arrogance of white supremacy have the movers and shapers of world policy living in a different world from people of color all together,” Wright raged on. “And the sooner you realize that the better off you’re gonna be.”

I think we might have a winner here. I’ve never been fully convinced that Rev. Wright believes this crap he spews. I think it’s all been about fame and fortune with this guy.

Clarence Thomas is indeed worshiping some other god. In his case, Jesus and JHVH, with some Holy Ghost.

Wright, on the other hand, seems to be worshiping sort of a muddled blend of Ba’al (Moloch)(child sacrifice), Mammon (money, greed), Thanatos (death), Erida (hate), and some variety of slime or mud gods that demand tribal warfare as their tribute.

Rev Wright has always been hamming it up. He knows what will sell to the benighted black middle and upper class and that is exactly who sat in his pews. Stamping and hollering when he put down America. He believes half of what he says plus Obama ripped off some of his oratorical stylings

Rev Wright, we’re just not that into you and your race. Meaning we don’t focus on skin color. We’ve got more important things to do.

Plus if you don’t mind my saying: you need more sunscreen at the beach than my white brother does.

And another shocker: Jews, Armenians, Chinese, Russians, and a lot of other people on this planet have suffered as bad or worse as your people have. Sure, never forget. I get that. But in the great scheme of life, GET OVER IT.

Yup. Whites were subject to slavery, also.

I am mostly Scottish and want my reparations from the English because some ancestor got a raw deal. So what if it's further back in history, my ancestors were wronged and enslaved by the English, I'm entitled so as to correct those wrongs to my Scottish heritage.

I want free stuff from England. If not, I will fly to London and riot on their streets until I get a new plasma TV. Har!

Forgot, I'm also part Iberian and they were conquered and enslaved by the Moors (muslims) if I remember correctly. So, I also want reparations from the ancestors of the muslims. How far back do these racist want to go? Do they not know that their own black ancestors enslaved black Africans and even sold them to others around the world?

While we're on this point, let's talk about the Indians (no, they weren't native to this continent). How many of the original tribes fought bloody-gory wars, killed, mutilated, raped, pillaged, and enslaved their captives before Europeans ever set foot on this continent? It used to be a fact before the PC educators stopped teaching it in public schools.

I may have a lack of melanin, but I deserve to be compensated for the enslavement of my ancestors. I want. Gimme, gimme.

I think it was said by De Toqueville that blacks would never forget they were slaves to whites and that resentment would last indefinately.

Maybe the word you should have used, is eternally.

Many groups in the black community are green with envy about the White race and it’s dominant status regarding the development of modern civilization. It has been the struggles of the White race and the Asian race that has determined the fate of the earth (WWI and WWII as recent examples), with the role of the black race primarily relegated to the sidelines. This is a huge sting to the pride of many black folks. And this bilge spewing forth from Rev. Heathen Wright is a testament to that fact.

Personally, as a member of the White race, I have never invented anything that is a useful contribution to civilization. However, I do feel that I make a contribution to civilization by eschewing the godless heathen spirits that Rev. Wright and his followers indulge in.

Just finally put away those heathen African spirits Rev. More-Pride-Than-Brains, and choose rather to take up with civilized spirits, and you’ll be a better man for it.~

..................

Perhaps a little off topic, but the good Reverend was one of only three Americans to make the Wiesenthal Center's top ten antisemites of 2011 list.

I don't wish to dispute the point with those who think our President is a Muslim. Islam is patrilineal, so in much of the world he would be until he became a Christian. However as I've noted here since his senate run, if looking for understanding, I'd suggest not concentrating on childhood connections to Islam, rather the belief system he embraced for several decades as an adult. Rev. Wright's Church provides the basic tenets here. I'd suggest that 1 beyond become Black Christian Activists, 8, 9, 11 and 12 disqualify someone from high office representing all Americans. Of all races. You can find plenty to read out there on liberation theology, black and otherwise. Bear in mind "black" frequently expands into poor, vs rich. Opressed vs oppressors. Arabs, oppressed by not only the colonial powers but by Jews fit the bill.

THE BLACK VALUE SYSTEM

Trinity United Church of Christ adopted the Black Value System, written by the Manford Byrd Recognition Committee, chaired by the late Vallmer Jordan in 1981.

Dr. Manford Byrd, our brother in Christ, withstood the ravage of being denied his earned ascension to the number one position in the Chicago School System. His dedication to the pursuit of excellence, despite systematic denials, has inspired the congregation of Trinity United Church of Christ. Prayerfully, we have called upon the wisdom of all past generations of suffering Blacks for guidance in fashioning an instrument of Black self-determination, the Black Value System.

Beginning in 1982, an annual Black Value System - Educational Scholarship in the name of Dr. Byrd was instituted. The first recipient of the Dr. Manford Byrd Award, which is given annually to the man or woman who best exemplifies the Black Value System, was our brother, Dr. Manford Byrd.

These Black Ethics must be taught and exemplified in homes, churches, nurseries and schools, wherever Blacks are gathered. They consist of the following concepts:

1.Commitment to God. "The God of our weary years" will give us the strength to give up prayerful passivism and become Black Christian Activists, soldiers for Black freedom and the dignity of all humankind. Matthew 22:37 - Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2.Commitment to the Black Community. The highest level of achievement for any Black person must be a contribution of strength and continuity of the Black Community. I John 4:20 - If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother [or his sister], he is a liar; for he that loveth not his brother or sister whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3.Commitment to the Black Family. The Black family circle must generate strength, stability and love, despite the uncertainty of externals, because these characteristics are required if the developing person is to withstand warping by our racist competitive society. Those Blacks who are blessed with membership in a strong family unit must reach out and expand that blessing to the less fortunate.

Deuteronomy 6:6-8 - And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4.Dedication to the Pursuit of Education. We must forswear anti-intellectualism. Continued survival demands that each Black person be developed to the utmost of his/her mental potential despite the inadequacies of the formal education process. “Real education” fosters understanding of ourselves as well as every aspect of our environment. Also, it develops within us the ability to fashion concepts and tools for better utilization of our resources, and more effective solutions to our problems. Since the majority of Blacks have been denied such learning, Black Education must include elements that produce high school graduates with marketable skills, a trade or qualifications for apprenticeships, or proper preparation for college. Basic education for all Blacks should include Mathematics, Science, Logic, General Semantics, Participative Politics, Economics and Finance, and the Care and Nurture of Black minds. Matthew 22:37 - Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul and with all thy mind.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5.Dedication to the Pursuit of Excellence. To the extent that we individually reach for, even strain for excellence, we increase, geometrically, the value and resourcefulness of the Black Community. We must recognize the relativity of one’s best; this year’s best can be bettered next year. Such is the language of growth and development. We must seek to excel in every endeavor. Ecclesiastes 9:10 - Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do [it] with thy might; for [there is] no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

6.Adherence to the Black Work Ethic. "It is becoming harder to find qualified people to work in Chicago." Whether this is true or not, it represents one of the many reasons given by businesses and industries for deserting the Chicago area. We must realize that a location with good facilities, adequate transportation and a reputation for producing skilled workers will attract industry. We are in competition with other cities, states and nations for jobs. High productivity must be a goal of the Black workforce. II Thessalonians 3:7-12 - For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you; Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labor and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you: Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us. For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7.Commitment to Self-Discipline and Self-Respect. To accomplish anything worthwhile requires self-discipline. We must be a community of self-disciplined persons if we are to actualize and utilize our own human resources, instead of perpetually submitting to exploitation by others. Self-discipline, coupled with a respect for self, will enable each of us to be an instrument of Black Progress and a model for Black Youth. I Peter 1:4-7 - To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perishes, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

8.Disavowal of the Pursuit of "Middleclassness." Classic methodology on control of captives teaches that captors must be able to identify the "talented tenth" of those subjugated, especially those who show promise of providing the kind of leadership that might threaten the captor's control. Proverbs 3:13-14 - Happy are those who find wisdom and those who gain understanding, for her income is better than silver and her revenue better than gold.

Those so identified are separated from the rest of the people by:

◦ Killing them off directly, and/or fostering a social system that encourages them to kill off one another.

◦ Placing them in concentration camps, and/or structuring an economic environment that induces captive youth to fill the jails and prisons.

◦ Seducing them into a socioeconomic class system which, while training them to earn more dollars, hypnotizes them into believing they are better than others and teaches them to think in terms of "we" and "they" instead of "us."

◦ So, while it is permissible to chase "middleclassness" with all our might, we must avoid the third separation method - the psychological entrapment of Black "middleclassness." If we avoid this snare, we will also diminish our "voluntary" contributions to methods A and B. And more importantly, Black people no longer will be deprived of their birthright: the leadership, resourcefulness and example of their own talented persons.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

9. Pledge to Make the Fruits of All Developing and Acquired Skills Available to the Black Community.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

10. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting Black Institutions.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 11. Pledge Allegiance to All Black Leadership Who Espouse and Embrace the Black Value System.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

12.Personal Commitment to Embracement of the Black Value System. To measure the worth and validity of all activity in terms of positive contributions to the general welfare of the Black Community and the Advancement of Black People towards freedom.

Gaijin, precisely. Reverend Wright ran the DLC out of his church. He was hoping people who overheard things would assume it was the Democratic Leadership Committee, but it was the Down Low Club. Mixing and matching the married men who want male lovers on the sly. If he was disgusted by gay male sex, he would not have arranged such a club, right??

I doubt that. The fact is that by 1967 the MLK nonviolent integrationist approach was leading to serious racial reconciliation. The "New Left" saw this and recognized that their trump card, racial animosity, was in jeopardy. The Left, as a result, had King assassinated and blamed it on white people. The divisive Black Power leaders siezed the day. The rest is history.

Every Sunday, for 20+ years. Every Sunday, sitting in the pew listening to this. Naming his book for him.

“I am in the text. Pilate was European…Jesus was not European.

Listen you ****ing moron: Jesus was one of (to use another charming Reverend Wright phrase) "them Jews." He was not an African as you seem to imply, no matter what your half-wit Afrocentric "philosophers" say.
