Skip to comments.Barack Obama's Pastor: "God Damn AmeriKKKa" (Video - disgusting!!)
Posted on 03/13/2008 11:13:16 AM PDT by pissant
Sen. Barack Obama's pastor says blacks should not sing "God Bless America" but "God damn America."
The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama's pastor for the last 20 years at the Trinity United Church of Christ on Chicago's south side, has a long history of what even Obama's campaign aides concede is "inflammatory rhetoric," including the assertion that the United States brought on the 9/11 attacks with its own "terrorism."
In a campaign appearance earlier this month, Sen. Obama said, "I don't think my church is actually particularly controversial." He said Rev. Wright "is like an old uncle who says things I don't always agree with," telling a Jewish group that everyone has someone like that in their family.
Rev. Wright married Obama and his wife Michelle, baptized their two daughters and is credited by Obama for the title of his book, "The Audacity of Hope."

Which specific Scriptural lesson does this sermon expound?
The parable of the evil whitey
This makes Ward Churchill seem pro-america
We have to occaisionally be around that old uncle, but we don’t go to them for spiritual guidance.
It would make physically ill to have a pastor that punctuated a point in a sermon by humping in back of the pulpit. It’s disgusting. That Obama could even go to this “church” should be a warning sign.
Hasta la vista, baby.
All of this Obama stuff is great, but couldn’t we have waited a couple of months before bringing it out?
Conservatives should do everything they can to put a lid on these stories until he’s the nominee, otherwise, we are helping the Democrats and especially the Clintons.
If you think that she is the easier one to beat, you are deluding yourselves. Rush and Hannity would prefer a Clinton presidency.
“Wright “is like an old uncle who says things I don’t always agree with,””
Well, do you or do you not agree with this particular outrageous statement, ORacist?
Why or why not?
And now for the hard part:
I don’t choose when ABC decides to air it. Just like I don’t choose when Spitzer is busted for prostitution. Too bad it did not happen during his campaign.
so, let me get this straight..this “pastor” engages in racial innuendo, inflammatory anti-white speech, anti-america rants etc..and O’Bama says nothing..
but if a white woman DARE say he’s where he’s at because he’s black, (which is true), HE comes unglued with the “you’re a racist” comment???
another reason to vote McCain
First, since when is Jeremiah Wright his FORMER pastor? Last I heard, Obama has been a member at Trinity for 20 years. Wright has been a formative effect on Obama for all that time, inspiring Obama's book "The Audacity of Hope" from a Wright sermon of the same name. Obama sought Wright out when searching for a church home, and after 20 years, if Obama were offended by Wright's racism and anti-Americanism, he has had 20 years in which to leave and find a more mainstream church. Obama didn't leave.
The more I hear of Jeremiah Wright, and the more I think about Obama staying there for 20 years, the more I understand Obama's refusing to wear a flag pin.
you’re asking him to be specific??..you $%$#@*&^%^&% RACIST../s
But, these other news outlets would not have looked into these things yet unless the likes of Hannity and Rush weren’t bringing huge attention to them.
I guarantee you that if the queen somehow survives the Dem nomination process, she will beat McCain by 20 points.
This country was never going to elect Barack Obama to the presidency in the first place.
FORMER?? when did this happen..all you hear is O’Bama talkin about this controversial church he belongs to..if this guy is his FORMER paster, where is O’Bama a member now??
I don’t control Hannity and Rush either. LOL
Exactly. If you, me, or any decent person joined a church and heard that kind of venom and hate coming from the pulpit, we wouldn’t stick around for even the next sermon let alone for twenty years!
He “retired” last month.
This is the same as McCain attending a Christian Identity “church” for 20 years. It is EXACTLY the same thing.
That being said, I actually wish McCain had been going to a Christian Identity church for 20 years. That way we could get rid of him.
This will not affect Obama in any way what-so-ever. You are aloud to hate white people in America.
oh, well then..tks for the info, I hadn’t heard he “retired”..convenient, huh..
“Which specific Scriptural lesson does this sermon expound?”
I’m guessing not the parable of the Good Samaritan.
aloud = allowed. Sorry I’m a really good looking bass player from the south, you can’t expect me to spell too!
This will certainly help Hellary. Its interesting how Rush is now working for her.
To me it doesn’t make a whit of difference if Rev. Wright retired. What does matter is that Obama didn’t walk away. Obama doesn’t get any “credit” for the split, because if the Rev hadn’t retired he would probably still be Obama’s pastor.
If Obama claims to regularly attend this church, wouldn’t it be great if we could spot him in the crowd footage on any of the inflammatory clips?
Who cares about Hillary. We have archives of crap on her. It is the Obamunist that needs to be destroyed right now. If it comes from the right and the clintons, so be it.
I’m speaking generally.
We should have held our fire until this clown became the nominee.
Now, even if he becomes the nominee, he’ll be able to use the old “that’s old news” line.
And, if the queen steals this from him, do you really think she won’t win in November?
As usual, this whole thing was played wrong from our side...no wonder liberals think we’re stupid.
Rush was using ABC material, not the other way around
Balack Obama is where he is now because he is a passing fad, he will fade away when the novelty wears down. Kinda like Rubiks Cube, it passed when they had enough and he will fade too when people get off their “euphoria” and realize what he is wanting for America...another four year years of peanut-led White House.
He is Hussein’s immam
And we certainly don't dedicate our books to them, as Obama has done. That's going to make it quite difficult for Obama to distance himself from the "reverend's" views.
I’m voting for McCain because there are not enough guns in the world that can be pointed at me to make me vote for whoever the dimoCRACKtic nominee will be.
So, how did you know that he spelled it with three K’s?
Yes, I’ve seen MANY leftist “Americans” spelling it that way.
Only a fool/useful idiot would vote for Obama.Sadly they are alot of them in the US.
“Who cares about Hillary. We have archives of crap on her. It is the Obamunist that needs to be destroyed right now. If it comes from the right and the clintons, so be it.”
We’ve been trying for 16 YEARS to destroy Hellary using the crap you refer to. It didnt work. Obama will be easy to destroy. Let him take out Hellary, then we take him out.
And wasn’t he engaging in politics during those services? Wouldn’t that have violated the church/state separation myth? If so, why wasn’t the IRS alerted to these happenings? Seems like removing his tax-exempt status would have shut this guy up.
i hear ya
the Dems are complete anti-American socialists.
“Jesus wept” John 11:35
Ya’ll are racist to try and use this against Obama. Besides this just “guilt by association.” He ain’t responsible for what the pastor said...
Is there a thread for that YouTube on FR? If not- we need one. That is the most outrageous, hateful, racist crap I’ve ever heard coming from a pulpit.
EVERYONE NEEDS TO HEAR IT.
This is the man who has influenced Barack Obama for over TWENTY YEARS...
I don’t “let” or control anything. Not the Clintons, not ABC, not Rush, not Hannity, not Larry Sinclair, not FR.
Those “archives of crap” haven’t stuck to her up until now.
What makes you think they’ll ever be an issue later?
The media do not care about her scandals. They would care about Obama’s scandals because they’d be new. But, by helping the Clintons, Rush has actually helped usher in a new Clinton presidency...maybe what he wanted all along.
“EVERYONE NEEDS TO HEAR IT.”
Not now. After he wins the nomination.
If it makes me a racist to hate race pimps, then I’ll be happy to own the label.
You have it exactly right.
He’s been able to hide that influence better than his wife has, though.
I had thought Obama would be eaiser to beat than the Clintons and was somewhat rooting for him along these lines. But this has sealed his fate and so be it. Obama has done everything he can to persuade voters he isnt “like that” but it aint going to wash.
In the back of my mind I wonder if the Clintons didnt have something to do with this speech.
