A website calling itself "IMAO" purports to have a sermon delivered by Jeremiah Wright posted on its website. I don't know anything about the website. In a presidential campaign, I have to believe that if it weren't true, one of Obama's campaign managers would have done something about it.
But what if it is true?
It's racist. It's anti-Semitic. It provokes violence.
How could someone running for president stomach such rhetoric? The fact that he could, and for many years, would surely disqualify him for candidacy, wouldn't it?
Again, that's not an argument against him, because maybe he should be a Muslim. They're doing God's work: Blowing up the honkeys and the Jews. So only reason that all those crackers oppose Obama is that they know he's going to succeed at what he promises: Killing the honkeys!
Now some tell me that we shouldn't be for killing the honkeys. We should just turn the other cheek. Who says this? That cracker Jesus! Well, answer me this: Has Jesus ever been called a [n-word]? Did anyone invent AIDS to kill Jesus? Well, maybe Jesus should not be lecturing the black man on what he should and should not be doing. As we speak, the government is working on plans to send all black people to Venus! That's right: NASA is going to send us to Venus where it is inhospitable to life and we will all die. So what does Jesus have to say about that? Nothing! God bless Jesus? No. God [expletive] Jesus! To hell with him! Throw his cracker ass out of here!
Those are the words of revolution. Does Obama actually buy this stuff? Lord God Almighty!!
Spirit Daily has linked the New York Times spin on Wright, including this:
Though their views are not necessarily representative of those of black ministers elsewhere, many pastors here describe Mr. Wright, who belongs to the liberal, predominantly white United Church of Christ, as a friend and role model. He is a frequent guest in North Carolina pulpits, and has been a voice in state social issues for decades.
