King had a dream, Obama has a drone, Rev. Wright says
Chicago SunTimes ^ | 1/15/14 | Stephen A. Crockett Jr.

If the Rev. Jeremiah Wright believes — as he’s claimed in the past — that he and President Barack Obama will be buddies again when he’s out of office, the firebrand preacher didn’t do himself any favors Wednesday.

Speaking at a breakfast co-hosted by the Chicago Teachers Union to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, Wright said that while the civil rights leader proclaimed “I have a dream,” Obama says, “I have a drone.”

Wright, Obama’s former pastor, called for King’s “revolution of values” and a rejection of the “three-headed demon” of “racism, militarism and capitalism” — the foundations of Western society, he said.

“Every Tuesday morning, there’s a kill list that the president decides who they’re going to kill this week,” Wright said.

Wright, pastor emeritus at Trinity United Church of Christ on the South Side, drew national attention during the 2008 presidential race for parts of his sermons, including one in which he said, “God damn America.” Obama later distanced himself from Wright.

Wright — with CTU President Karen Lewis and a host of mainly African-American pastors in attendance — continued in that vein Wednesday, blasting corporate media for reducing King’s words to palatable sound bites. Wright provided plenty of his own sound bites, as he took aim at some of Illinois’ most revered citizens, including America’s 16th president.

“Abraham Lincoln liked to tell darkie jokes,” Wright said. “He liked to hear darkie jokes and he used the N-word incessantly.”

Wright, his words spiced with sarcasm, questioned how U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan landed his job — after he “ruined the school system” in Chicago as CEO of schools.

“A good hook shot playing basketball with . . . Barack Hussein Obama,” Wright said to chuckles.

After the speech, Wright left without answering reporters’ questions — including those from a Fox national news crew chasing him down a hallway.

Lewis defended Wright’s remarks, including the Obama references, saying the pastor’s words need to be seen in a broad context.

“The issue is, how do we put those things in context so we can get to the point where we can have a world that’s healed and perfected, where we don’t have war?” Lewis said.

Reminds me of this golden goodie Trouble in paradise. And as usual, RevWright's defenders throw out the C-word, as in context.

Well, it takes one... to know one they say--

That' calling a spade... a spade, Bendy!

Okay, okay, to even this out... Two rednecks decided that they weren't going anywhere in life and thought they should go to college to get ahead. The first went in to see the counselor, who told him to take math, history, and logic.

"What's logic?" the first redneck asked.

The professor answered, "Let me give you an example. Do you own a weed eater?"

"I sure do."

"Then I can assume, using logic, that you have a yard," replied the professor.

"That's real good!" said the redneck.

The professor continued, "Logic will also tell me that since you have a yard, you also own a house."

Impressed, the redneck said, "Amazing!"

"And since you own a house, logic dictates that you have a wife."

"That's Betty Mae! This is incredible!" The redneck was catching on.

"Finally, since you have a wife, logically I can assume that you are heterosexual," said the professor. "You only have sexual feeling for women."

"You're absolutely right! Why that's the most fascinatin' thing I ever heard! I cain't wait to take that logic class!" The redneck, proud of the new world opening up to him, walked back into the hallway where his friend was still waiting.

"So what classes are ya takin' ?" asked the friend.

"Math, history, and logic!" replied the first redneck.

"What in tarnation is logic?" asked his friend.

"Let me give you an example. Do ya own a weed eater?" asked the first redneck.

"No," his friend replied.

"You're queer, ain't ya?"

Don't worry about Barry seeming to diss you man.
He's gotta claim deniability on occasion.
You're still one of his main bros.

Just a case of “Tell ‘em what they want to hear”. No matter that you don’t believe it or won’t support it in the end. Just tell ‘em what they want to hear.

Communist, racist, “reverend”. I bet he doesn’t refuse money when it’s given to him.

I wonder what demon he prays to?

He certainly doesn’t pray to God.

Obama is Wright’s best disciple, and he’s carrying his plan out perfectly.

...he and President Obama will be buddies again when he’s out of office...

Bwahahahaha! That’s a good one, Jerry. But you better understand that once you’re thrown under the bus, you stay under the bus. Barry has no need for you.

Wow, if only Wright had more of a death wish and would tell the KKK America about the little down low club he started...

I believe Wright was offered money by Obama's people, but turned it down.

Hey, hey, hey now, Mr. Bender...pretty sure you can't use that word on a public forum where just about anybody could see it!

Are you trying to be offensive?!? What year do you think this is?

That's not a word to be seen or heard in public, not today, not in modern, civilized America. Best you keep it to yourself.

Look around! "Logic" is just not allowed.
