Rev. Wright Urged to Stay Silent Until After 2012 (More from Ed Klein tapes)
The Washington Examiner ^ | Saturday, May 19, 2012 | Byron York

Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whose "God damn America" sermon set off a firestorm during the 2008 campaign, agreed not to publish an account of the episode until after President Obama's 2012 re-election campaign, according to an interview Wright conducted with the author of a new book on Obama. Wright said he made the decision at the urging of a friend and mentor, the prominent University of Chicago emeritus professor Martin Marty.

In the interview, Wright told Ed Klein, author of The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, that he keeps a cardboard box of documents and notes detailing his experiences beginning in March 2008, when the controversy over his sermons began. "It's a painful box to look at," Wright said.

"Marty had me over to his home for dinner in January [2010]," Wright told Klein. "He said to me, 'Are you keeping notes on what's happened to you in this Obama campaign?' I said, 'Yes, sir, I am.' He said, 'Don't publish it until after the next election. They'll think it's sour grapes. Wait until after 2012.'"

It was at that point, Wright told Klein, that he decided to leave the box untouched, at least for now. "I don't look at the box," Wright said. "I haven't looked at it since I've been to Marty's house."

"[Marty] said, 'Don't write that until after 2012," Wright said. "I said, 'I'm not.' [He said] 'Don't publish it.' [I said] 'I'm not.' I haven't even looked at it. I've just put all of it in one box and said I would get to it later."

Wright's description of his discussion with Marty is not included in the Klein book. But Klein, through his public relations representative, made the audio of his entire two-hour-and-forty-five minute interview with Wright available to The Washington Examiner.

I just had a long talk to my brother about “things”. Like he says. There is a significantly larger part of the population who don’t post their views. They are 2 busy going to work, paying their bills, in seething silent rage, ready to go...

Urged, threatened, or reminded that his choir director’s demise is still unsolved?

There were Whitey tapes from the church too...with none other than Sasquatch herself raging against those who done her wrong.
They mysteriously disappeared before the election.
