Jeremiah Wright: We need control
Politico ^ | 7/8/12 | JENNIFER EPSTEIN

Posted on 07/08/2012 6:49:26 PM PDT by Nachum

President Barack Obama’s former spiritual adviser spoke just a few miles from the White House on Sunday, and politics and controversy weren’t far from what Rev. Jeremiah Wright had to say.

“As we celebrate the foundations of our future, this is not a time to romanticize because we have the first African-descended president in the White House,” Wright said in a fiery sermon that lasted close to an hour. “You see what the tea party is trying to do.”

Speaking at Washington’s Florida Avenue Baptist Church, which marks its 100th anniversary this week, Wright urged parishioners to teach their children true African-American history and not to cede their educations to “our enemies” who teach “his story,” one that “distorts our story, disses our story.”

Children may “only know Oprah and Obama,” he said, so it’s up to elders to teach about Nat Turner, Emmett Till, Rosa Parks, Paul Robeson, Zora Neale Hurston and other black voices.

“our enemies” Why so divisive, Rev. Wright? What do you have against my desire to remain free?

Why does this “church” not get audited and lose its tax exempt status for political activity?

how we got from a black congressman named Adam Clayton Powell to a black president named Barack Hussein Obama,”

Yes, from a small time crook poltician to a crook at the top.

They will kill their own kind, defend the enemies of their kind or anyone who is perceived to be the enemy of the milky white way of life.”

Hussein's mentor certainly does seem to hate white people.

Lighten up Jerry before you have a stroke! All that racism can be hazardous to your health.

Funny, black voices like Allen West, Thomas Sowell, Booker T. Washington, Walter Williams, and Clarence Thomas are not "approved" voices.

The only approved voices are those that preach victimhood, and those like Paul Robeson who would have pledged allegiance to the Hammer and Sickle.

Never forget the white people that made you free, that did not go along
with the others that enslaved you. Never forget the white people that
died in the war, to set you free. Never forget the white people that
marched with you and were killed by the KKK along side of you. Never
forget that Blacks actually formed The Texas Republican Party to get rid of the racist Democrats, Never forget that Democrats passed the Fugitive slave law, Never forget that when Lincoln proposed freeing the slaves 100% of the Republicans voted for it and only 23% of Democrats voted for it, Never forget in 1868 when they passed the 14th amendment EVERY Republican voted for the bill EVERY Democrat voted against it. Never forget in 1872 Congressional hearings, the Democrats admitted to starting The KKK so they could stop the spread of the Republican party because at that time all blacks were Republican.
Never forget between 1870 and 1875 Republicans in congress passed many
civil rights laws for blacks, the the Democrats took over in 1892 and
REPEALED ALL the civil rights laws, which enabled the Democrats to pass
the Jim Crow Laws. It was Roosevelt who turned blacks into Democrats by
giving money, housing, food, clothing and jobs to them. With government
handouts he bought their votes. Now obama is trying to do the same
thing. Why is it, I know more about black history than most blacks?

I noticed MLK is not even on the list.

After the sermon, the Wright celestial choir stood up and gyrated left and right with 2 stanzas of “God Damn America!”.

"As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their hearts desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

Because it’s a liberal church. Only conservative religious institutions get threatened by the IRS.

“our enemies”... Reason; Rationality; Compassion For All; Blind Justice; All Men Are Created Equal; Freedom; Free Markets; Self Determination; The Constitution Of The United States Of America... These are the enemies of one Jeremiah Wright and Black Marxism, and all other forms of lawlessness including bureaucracy ...

- Remember kids - It is all George W Bush*s fault that the African Green Monkey virus was brought to magically infect American blacks by the CIA by using an evil capitalistic time machine owned by Bain Capital.

- It is impossible for it to have happened any other way.....

This kook is not very black so he has to try harder and act crazier. But it pays the bills and then some. This wacko retired to a white gated community. He has a sunburn ...... He looks 25% African at the most

Amusing that Obama with his zero slave blood ripped off Rev Wright's oratory, demagoguery and style

We’ve had several decades of black Mayors, black Governors, black Representatives, black Assemblymen,Black Senators on the State and Federal levels and at last a black President. With several exceptions, and against all good hopes to the contrary, they have, in the strong majority, proven to be purposefully incompetent or criminal, sometimes both, anti-American, racialist disasters.

No more. Wright speaks the truth. THEY want control. THEY want to control US so THEY can destroy US. No more. They get no more chances! No more!

Give them absolutely everything they want and they will still hate whitey. It’s become very clear to me that they have a secret envy because of the color of their own skin.

Because intellectual laziness is a very hard habit to break. Your average black these days is intellectually lazy to the Nth degree and that makes them very easy to inveigle with the lies from the democrats. Lies designed to brainwash and control them.

He's just another one of them selling out his own people for self interest, fame, and notoriety. He's living well, and to "H" with the rest of them. He's got his.

Wright up there with the Jackson's, Sharpton's, etc.

"It is from following leaders like wright.

It seems to me lately that "leaders" like Jerry Wright, Calypso Louie and Malik Shabazz along with a significant number of blacks and leftists in our own government are trying to start an actual insurgency in this country. They spew nothing but venom and hatred, and tacitly (sometimes openly) encourage violence. They just look for fires to pour gasoline onto.

Now you’re getting it. That is the plan - the Mother of all Race Wars to bring down America. I am noticing it in my town —Young blacks walking down the middle of the street or walking out into the intersection against the light making you stop the car - the glaring looks. Someone is churning it up for no other purpose than CHAOS.

The Reverend reeled off a few iconic names to make his point.The initial name intrigued me, as I remember a novel titled "The Confessions of Nat Turner" I did not read it. I did some hasty Wikipedia work.

Virginia 1831 found a rebellion by slaves lead by Turner. Sixty innocent white people were murdered. Women and children not spared. Hacked to death with axes, clubs and other handy implements. Wiki lays it on thick about the number of innocent blacks murdered in retaliation by white militia.

Turner was hanged after a trial. His dead body was desecrated and flayed. Under the Constitution, he was saved from "cruel and unusual punishment". In one certain country, he would have been flayed and tortured first- then hanged.

Reverend Wright is destroying himself with his vile hatred. I will say no more.

If any white preacher had made similar remarks about white racial superiority they would be denounced as racist.
