Jeremiah Wright Was a Muslim: Why That Matters
No Quarter ^ | April 10, 2008 | Bud White

Posted on 05/14/2008 7:20:19 PM PDT by Heuristic Hiker

“I am a part of all that I have met.” Ulysses by Tennyson

The Obama-lovin’ media wants you to believe that the Reverend Wright earthquake has passed. Some would have you believe that Obama turned a negative into a positive with his embarrassing public contortionism defending Wright and giving us a history lesson on American racism from Plymouth Rock to the Freedom Riders, as if Reverend Wright’s inexcusable hate needs a context.

Nothing is further from the truth.

There is much to be told about Reverend Wright, Obama’s mentorship with this hate-monger, and the larger implication this relationship has for the Democratic Party and its strained coalition.

Long before Reverend Wright entered the national stage, Ryan Lizza of The New Republic, in the March 19, 2007 issue, dropped this little gem:

Wright was a former Muslim and black nationalist who had studied at Howard and Chicago, and Trinity’s guiding principles–what the church calls the “Black Value System”[Emphasis added]

Why should Reverend Wright’s past as Muslim concern us?

First, Reverend Wright’s hate sermons are virtually identical as those given by his good friend, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who followed in the footsteps of Malcolm X. For example, this description by Ben Wallace Wells, published in Rolling Stone—a magazine that favors Obama, most likely in serving the interests of their demographic–in February, prior to the release of the Wright videos, makes clear the connection:

Wright takes the pulpit here one Sunday and solemnly, sonorously declares that he will recite ten essential facts about the United States. “Fact number one: We’ve got more black men in prison than there are in college,” he intones.

“Fact number two: Racism is how this country was founded and how this country is still run!” There is thumping applause; Wright has a cadence and power that make Obama sound like John Kerry.

Now the reverend begins to preach. “We are deeply involved in the importing of drugs, the exporting of guns and the training of professional KILLERS. . . . We believe in white supremacy and black inferiority and believe it more than we believe in God. . . . We conducted radiation experiments on our own people. . . . We care nothing about human life if the ends justify the means!”

The crowd whoops and amens as Wright builds to his climax: “And. And. And! GAWD! Has GOT! To be SICK! OF THIS SHIT!…This is as openly radical a background as any significant American political figure has ever emerged from, as much Malcolm X as Martin Luther King Jr.

The racist paranoia of AIDS being developed by white America to kill blacks and other inexcusable statements are from the same framework of the NOI and Farrakhan. In fact:

In 1984, Wright was one of the inner circle that traveled with Farrakhan to visit Libyan strongman Col. Muammar Khadafy. The ostentatious Farrakhan junket came at a time when Khadafy had been identified as the world’s chief financier of international terrorism, including the Black September group behind the Munich Olympics massacre.

Secondly, while Obama’s plagiarism of a speech delivered by Nation of Islam leader Malcolm X to mostly black audiences has been correctly noted as a racial dog-whistle, it has not been examined in the larger context of the black separatist movement from which it originates.

Third, why did Wright’s church put the racist and anti-Semitic Farrakhan on the cover of its magazine Trumpet? Why did Trinity Church post:

a manifesto by Hamas that defended terrorism as legitimate resistance, refused to recognize the right of Israel to exist and compared the terror group’s official charter – which calls for the murder of Jews – to America’s Declaration of Independence[?]

The three points above show a consistent pattern of Wright parroting not only the language and but also the attitude of the Nation of Islam.

Wright has synthesized Christianity and an odious brand of Islam. When two religions become one, social scientists refer to this as a syncretic religion. For example, the Mayans developed Mexican Catholicism as a subversive way to maintain their culture in the face of Spanish conquest. The Reverend Wright may no longer be a Muslim, but he clearly embraces Hamas, Minister Farrakhan and others because they dovetail with his established world view, as with other syncretic religions.

Reverend Wright’s hate speeches are a glimpse of someone who has blended Nation of Islam and Black Nationalist Liberation Theology into a subversive Christianity, one that would hardly be recognized by most black Christians, and much less so mainstream American Christians, regardless of color. Indeed, one suspects that Jesus himself would have a difficult time recognizing the message delivered by Jeremiah Wright.

Obama’s 20-year mentorship with Wright not only demonstrates an incredible lack of judgment, but also highlights his views on race. Comments about his Grandmother being a typical white person may simply sound immature, unappreciative, and dismissive of the woman who helped raise him, but in the tradition of Malcolm X, Louis Farrakhan, and Jeremiah Wright, calling someone a typical white person is an insult indicating a world view.

This article is a bit dated...the source is liberal and pro-Hillary, but the point that is made about Wright's attempt to sythesize Christianity into an odious brand of Islam - is I think, an interesting (and troubling) one to consider.

The Real Story Behind Rev. Wright's Controversial Black Liberation Theology Doctrine
Monday , May 5, 2008
FoxNews/Hannity's America
[special Friday night edition--original airdate May 2, 2008]

(some key excerpts)

REV. BOB SCHENCK, NATIONAL CLERGY COUNCIL: "it's based in Marxism. At the core of his [Wright's] theology is really an anti-Christian understanding of God, and as part of a long history of individuals who actually advocate using violence in overthrowing those they perceive to be oppressing them, even acts of murder have been defended by followers of liberation theology. That's very, very dangerous."

SCHENCK: "I was actually the only person escorted to Dr. Wright. He asked to see me, and I simply welcomed him to Washington, and then I said Dr. Wright, I want to bring you a warning: your embrace of Marxist liberation theology. It is contrary to the Gospel, and you need, sir, to abandon it. And at that he dropped the handshake and made it clear that he was not in the mood to dialogue on that point."

JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO NETWORK: "Liberation theology in Nicaragua in the mid-1980's was a pro-Sandinista, pro-Marxist, anti-U.S., anti-Catholic Church movement. That's it. No ifs, ands, or buts. His church apparently supported, in the mid-'80s in Nicaragua, groups that supported the Sandinista dictatorships and that were opposed to the Contras whose reason for being was calling for elections. That's all I know. I was there.

I saw the churches in Nicaragua that he spoke of, and the churches were churches that talked about the need for violent revolution and I remember clearly one of the major churches in Managua where the Jesus Christ on the altar was not Jesus Christ, he was a Sandinista soldier, and the priests talked about the corruption of the West, talked about the need for revolution everywhere, and talked about 'the evil empire' which was the United States of America."

Obama's Church: Gospel of Hate
Kathy Shaidle, FrontPageMag.com
Monday, April 07, 2008

In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obama’s pastor in a heated interview about his Church’s teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...

Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.

Jeremiah Wright’s Controversial AIDS Charge [KGB connection]
Accuracy In Media (AIM) ^ | April 28, 2008 | Cliff Kincaid

Asked during the question-and-answer period following his National Press Club speech on Monday [April 28, 2008] why he charged the U.S. Government with manufacturing the AIDS virus to kill black people, Barack Obama’s “former” pastor Jeremiah Wright cited a 1996 book by Leonard Horowitz, Emerging Viruses: AIDS and Ebola. This rang a bell. I had exchanged correspondences with Horowitz several years ago because I caught him promoting an old Soviet disinformation theme that has been disavowed by former Soviet and KGB officials. ...."

It's quite illuminating, and so are some of the comments --- liberals I might add!:

RE Sharia Law A Muslim must have a Muslim name. Rev. Wright does not have a Muslim name. It is not allowed to truley be a Christian and have a Muslim name. If you leave Islam you MUST change your name and then you can be sentenced to death. You can be Muslim and join and attend a Christian church. You can be active in the church. As long as you do not change your name it is OK. The Koran states Jesus was born of a virgin named Mary and was a great prophet. Islam holds Jesus as being almost equal to Mohammed. It is not just the middle name of Barrak Obama thet is Islamic. Barack and Obama are African Muslim names Hussein is Arabic. Barack Hussein Obama is 100% Muslim according to Islamic culture and Sharia Law. This doesn't upset me but the denial and lying about it does. In the world of Islam the end justifies the means. If he can become President by hiding under the cloak of Christianity he is forgiven and can obtain Paradise. Do not take my word for this check for yourself. The name is the key.

“Indeed, one suspects that Jesus himself would have a difficult time recognizing the message delivered by Jeremiah Wright.”

Oh, I’m sure He would recognize it. And not to presume to speak for The Lord, but my bet is he would say. “Get ye behind me” to it.

Article: "REVOLUTIONARY HEROS"

excerpt...

"On May 1st, May Day, the day of the gigantic Free Huey rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo.

Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him.

The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology."

To these brothers the revolutionary people of racist America want to say, by your revolutionary deed you are heroes, and that you are always welcome to our camp."

“Obama is not a Christian.”

So? Those who allow this beautiful country to disappear into a third world nation are not very Christ-like either. Yet, we do vote them into office every time.

“’Mao Tse Tung ... had a billion people whose lives he had to transform.’...”

And gee his policies only killed about 65,000,000 of them. Well, guess you gotta “break some eggs” to further “social justice,” so that’s OK. /moonbat

Not if he hasn’t really left it. See “taqqiya.”

He 'was' a good friend of Obama. Though he never heard a single word he said, he always helped him a-drink his wine.

Maybe Pastor Manning will say that o-Hussein-b was sexual abused by the "wright" (wrong)!!!

If Obama were the king of the world, tell you what he'd do. He'd throw away the cars and the bars and the war, make sweet love to Wright...

Obama’s 20-year mentorship with Wright not only demonstrates an incredible lack of judgment, but also highlights his views on race.

Obama's own words highlight his views on race

I don't know exactly what they say about Jesus Christ in Wright's church, but apparently whatever it is, it conforms to the Koran's opinion of "the prophet 'Esa, the son of Mary."

So I suspect taqqiya to be in operation there.

In that International Herald Tribune article from 04/07, Wright said that he told Obama that Trinity was an excellent place for apostate Muslims and former gang member. But you have to investigate BLT to understand why. BLT views Jesus as the spiritual son of God, a perfect role model, much the same as Muslims regard Christ. But the reason for the good fit for former gang members is a little different. That is because BLT doesn’t believe in personal sin for “oppressed people” (judicial restoration), they only sin that “oppressed people” are capable of committing is failing to rebel against oppressive white authority.

Also, Jeremiah Wright has a masters degree in divinity, with an area of concentration on Islamic religion, not Christianity. Obama claims that Wright has read Tillich and Niebuhr, both of whom were socialists, with a less than fundamentalist belief in the Bible. Niebuhr did an about face on socialism when he had to flee Europe and come to this country, though.
