Jeremiah Wright: “Racists in the right wing are upset because poor people are about to be helped”

September 8, 2009

Just when you thought it was safe…

President Barack Obama has finally shed one radical association — disgraced former “Green Jobs Czar” Van Jones — but now another, more familiar one has resurfaced.

As viewers saw on FOX News last night, Obama’s former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, wasted little time insinuating himself back into the public eye.

You may remember Rev. Jeremiah Wright as the man whose Chicago church Barack Obama attended for many years, and whose most famous sermon, “The Audacity of Hope,” lent its title to one of Obama’s bestselling books.

And who will ever forget Rev. Wright’s now-infamous sermon on September 16, 2001, just days after the worst terrorist attack in American history:

We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands [who died on 9/11] in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye. We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost.

Sitting in for Greta Van Susteren last night, guest host Jamie Colby aired a brief video clip of Rev. Wright, provided by, of all things, the notorious celebrity gossip site TMZ.com:

COLBY: Health care reform quickly becoming the make-or-break issue for this presidency, and sources are saying the White House is planning to draft its own bill to make sure that reform happens. And just when you thought the debate could not get any more heated — you’ve seen those town halls — enter Reverend Jeremiah Wright!

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: So what do you think about the health care bill?

REV. JEREMIAH WRIGHT, PRES. OBAMA’S FORMER PASTOR: I think the racists in the right wing are upset because poor people are about to be helped.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

COLBY: So shocking it is, I’m going to play it for you again.

Which Colby did.

President Obama once tried, belatedly, to distance himself from the polarizing preacher. But clearly Rev. Wright won’t be so easily dismissed.

With ideological allies like Van Jones and Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the President may well be asking himself, who needs enemies?

    And one more thing. I don’t like poor people. At least your kinda poor people, the ones who demand other peoples money with contempt for their benefactors.

    Here are a few reasons why I don’t like poor people.

    The only jobs they create are government jobs
    Poor people don’t hire anyone
    Poor people don’t pay taxes
    Poor people, don’t give money to charity on don’t even help out, they are busy taking.
    Poor people are often thieves and hoodlums
    Poor people are often lazy and uneducated
    Poor people often work as remaining poor to stay of welfare roles
    Most smokers are poor people.
    Poor people don’t look after their health very well and not because it ain’t free
    Poor people are always looking for the easy way out.

    Now I should mention that there are a lot of people who lack money, but they are not poor people. They are people who are down right now, but will get up every morning with a good attitude and work to better themselves and their families. Those are not the poor people I am talking about. I am talking about the scum that dwells at the bottom of every society on earth and are used by socialists everywhere, to help them use the guilt, envy and class warfare to gain political and social power.

    I see Obama as a poor person who was made wealthy by those scum bag socialists who use poor people like Obama to help them gain more political and social power.

    Socialists are not same people since they do not value freedom and individual achievement. It has been individuals who have given us the most. We enjoy a modern convenient world thanks to their innovation and technological advances. … most of which came from individuals working in garages and basements. Most of those people had no money either, but they weren’t beggars and users of others.

    Socialists imagine a utopian world where everything is fair and orderly with them in charge, but that is not how life is meant to be lived. It is meant to be lived freely and boldly. Not in a line up waiting for a free flu shot or a bowl of soup or a roll of toilet paper.

    The thing about past ghosts of idiocy is they don’t go away, & never stop haunting you!
    The ego trips from yesterday will follow you forever. Particularly if you back stabbed them.

    I really do believe that Mr.Obama slept through all of those sermons. I don’t think he paid attention not one little bit. He picked Mrs.Obama because of her connections and her ability to further his goals (proves there IS someone for everyone)She however did not sleep through them.She bought it hook line and sinker that racism is a crusade of christianity.She was conditioned.Obama is smart but not smarter than the god of king David.

    I hope this doesn’t double post but the first one just vanished so here goes.
    I DO belive Mr.Obama slept through those sermons. I Do believe that he did not pay any attention to them.

    Mrs.Obama however bought hook, line and sinker that racism is a crusade of christianity.

    He married her for her connections and ability to further his cause.(Proves there IS someone for everyone) but for love?

    Who that loves someone would allow them to be brainwashed with hateful and damning lies against a saviour they claim to believe in? For years? Who would submit their offspring to such?
    Who would submit their offspring to a religious leader that they didn’t even deem worthy of paying attention to? Surely this shows a lack of responsibility at the least.

    Mr.Obama is smart enough to know that Mrs.Obama was predisposed in that general direction and that she would.
    She was conditioned and he not only allowed it but encouraged it while not letting it affect him.

    He is either really smart or really stupid.(I think it’s diabolicly smart but in the end will prove stupid)

    He is not as smart as our lord the god of David whom he sinned against by contributing to the unbiblical belifes of his wife,family and community by either active participation, careless carelessness, or intentional conditioning.I believe it was the latter.
