The Clever Rev. Jeremiah Wright

Hot Dog Anti-American publicity hound Rev. Jeremiah Wright plans to turn the tables on the “white establishment” he so hates. The AP has announced that Wright has cancelled several appearances in Florida and Texas. Wright cites “security issues” for the hosting facilities, for his family, and for himself as his reason for cancelling. But we know better.

Unfortunately for Wright’s case, none of the local police departments in Florida or Texas know of any security issues and have already offered to beef up security for Wright.

Wright, the perpetrator of anti-White racism, is planning on turning himself into the imaginary victim of racism. Clever, don’t you think?

Well it’s likely to work among those who already buy into Wright’s type of perpetual victim-mentality!

The Daily Skiff, TCU’s campus newspaper, is lamenting the fact that the event honoring the “controversial” pastor was moved off campus.

“Many of the comments by Barack Obama's Chicago pastor are certainly offensive, but should be tolerated for an optional event on a college campus.”

I’ll buy into that logic as soon as TCU invites a white racist like David Duke to be tolerated for an “optional event on a college campus.”

Meanwhile, according to OneNewsNow, “Conservative black leader Ken Blackwell is denouncing a Texas divinity school's decision to give an award to Barack Obama's former pastor for his 40 years of ministry, despite Rev. Jeremiah Wright's sometimes hateful and anti-American rhetoric.

Blackwell, a senior fellow at the Family Research Council, says while Brite Divinity and Wright have the legal right to be theologically wrong, they cannot force anyone to accept their beliefs or institutional decision. Blackwell disagrees with the liberation theology that Wright espouses from the pulpit.

"Liberation theology is a belief system that teaches that biblical phrases such as the Messiah coming to 'set the captives free' speaks to overthrowing government to aid the downtrodden, rather than teaching that freedom comes about by achieving spiritual freedom through an individual relationship with God," Blackwell notes.

He says liberation theology is only practiced by a minority of black churches in America and does not represent orthodox Christianity. "We have a tradition in the African-American church of pursuing social justice [and] of breaking down our walls of exclusion, and I think that is consistent with traditional Christian thought and Christian doctrine," Blackwell says.

Blackwell also contends that liberation theology, as it has been practiced in Latin America and Africa over the past 50 years, "has been advanced by insurgent regimes that have been more about political agendas and collectivist economies than encouraging people to seek an individual relationship with God. . ."

Digg It!

  2. Oh Yeah! The Rev has taught the Victimization 101 course for so long and now he will be able to give a demonstration for his pupils by hiding behind his so called fear of "Whity". What a crock! He is a traitor, a liar, a racist, and a charlatan. Jesus called folks like him Vipers. I am sure that I could add many more adjectives which would certainly apply to the Left Rev.Wright. The farlefnoid bunch at Brite Divinity will be costly for TCU in the future if they continue their support of this racist and anti-American individual.

    Horned Frogs can be rather prickly critters when riled.

  3. I'm a student at TCU. Actually, the TCU Daily Skiff has mostly run articles that a.) went along with TCU's distancing itself from Brite, and/or b.) condemned Rev. Wright. If you're going to quote the school newspaper, you should at least be aware that it is mostly supporting your sadly uninformed opinion. That single opinion article which said that the event should not have been moved was really the only one of its kind, unfortunately. So, not surprisingly, you're being misleading on this point. On the whole, people are woefully ignorant concerning this entire issue.

    Wright is not inventing the security issues, nor is he trying to make himself into an imaginary victim. Due in large part to blogs like yours and the mainstream media which has focused upon only two or three clips taken quite out of context, there are indeed security concerns. That is why the event was moved off-campus in the first place.

    Please -- when you write about people, remember that no matter how much you disagree with them, they, too, are children of God.

    Bless your heart.

  4. -- two or three clips taken out of context??? Boy, sometimes I just can't believe it. I'm sure you feel pretty good about yourself Megan. Wow.

  5. Sorry Megan but you have been hornswoggled by the LSM into believing that the Left Rev Wright is some kind of poor misunderstood throw back from the 60's. That's a load of bull. He invented the security threats in order to become the victim in this sorid affair.

    MLK did not run from situations but then he did not preach hate for his country either. The Left Rev Wright would love to claim comparison with MLK but it will be a cold day in Texas in the middle of August before he could even be worthy of shining MLK's shoes.

    Sound bites, hardly. This is the type of message that this church has been preaching for years and continues to preach. Have you not read their website? It is the message that tyrants in Africa have used to destroy entire countries all in the name of G-d. Ghana is an excellent example of the teachings that come forth from the Left Rev. Wrights theology and church.
    I stand on my description of him.
    A child of God... a spawn of the devil would be more correct and fitting description of the Left Rev.Wright.

    Bless your heart! Now grow up, get real and into the adult world where singing Kumbuya and roasting marshmallows does nothing except leave one with sticky hands and a warm fuzzy feeling.

  7. I hear that Wright will not attend the award ceremony because of "security" for himself, his family and the church/institutions.

  8. That is what HE said Debbie. The truth is , he is playing the victim card from Victimology 101. It's the oldest trick in the book. Screw up, blame someone else and hide under the table waiting for someone to feel sorry for you. As usual, according to Victimology 101, it is always someone else's fault.

  9. From HankInTexas:

    Republican presidents have been embracing anti-American, anti-minority, anti-Semitic, anti-gay, anti-women, anti-Catholic, etc., etc. Right-Wing Evangelical and Fundamentalist ministers for decades. People like Schaefer, Graham, Falwell, Robertson, Jones, Hagee and dozens of others have all preached that America and Americans are damned by God for one goofy reason or another. These religious bigots have been the advisors and confidants to Nixon, Ford, Reagan and both Bushes. But, the anti-American hate they spew is fine because it furthers the fear-based Right-Wing political agenda.

    Wright's problem is that he isn't "White and Right."

    So far, I’ve seen/heard a minute’s worth of Rev. Wright’s anti-American ranting, the same two or three examples shown over and over again 24/7. Someone or some organization with a fear-based Right-Wing agenda bought videos of many of Rev. Wright’s sermons with the express purpose of publishing his ranting for the world to see in order to take down Senator Obama. Where are the videos of all the inflammatory sermons that Senator Obama is alleged to have witnessed over 20 years? You know, the stuff Senator Obama absolutely had to have listened to almost every Sunday. Where are they? One attempt to pin Senator Obama to a specific sermon failed because it was a sloppy fabrication, and resulted in a retraction in the NYT.

    Where are they?

  10. Hank in Texas:
    You keep leaving the same repetitive comments on several blog posts. I allow wide latitude when it comes to comments, but consider this a warning. By the way, the only reason you’ve “only seen a minute’s worth of Rev. Wright’s anti-American ranting ,”is because you obviously don’t know how to search YouTube, or you don’t want to face the truth. Additionally, I have 9 minutes of his 9/11 sermon transcribed on this very blog. Now be a good sleuth and go look for Wright’s disparaging comments about Italian Americans. Here’s the key word quote “Garlic Noses.”

    Oh, I know you are going to cry “out of context,” right? So I ask you lefty drones to answer this: How much context would be needed if someone used the N-word in just one sentence?

  12. Megan dear, I suggest you read all of the articles posted on this blog about Brite Divinity School before you get on your high-horse and start lecturing about that which you obviously know very little. Do your research thoroughly, and someday you might actually become a TCU alum, like me!

  13. Well Hank inTexas it seems that you must have copied and pasted your rant since I have seen this same identical piece of garbage on the ACT LTE Blog in Asheville, NC, the G'boro LTE Blog, the Denver blog. Can't you lefties every be original or are you so like lemmings you just repeat and run off the cliff into the same proverbial pile of crap.

    As to the Rev. Billy Graham, I had the pleasure of knowing Billy for many years. He was "minister" to over half dozen Presidents. Not one time did he ever accuse the US government of planting any kind of disease into any community to annilaiate that community. Others have in their righteous indignation stated that God would punish this country for a mulititude of sins and they are probably right but none have made the "God Damn America" statement. I dare you to show such statement.

    None of these preachers or what ever one wishes to label them have preached the hatered of this country as the Left Rev Wright has done. None embrace the theology of Afro-centricity nor the Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology.

    I have sat in many Black congregations across this country and I have never heard a Black Pastor preach the hate as this Left Rev Wright preaches. I sat and listened to MLK as he preached love for all and not some love for Black's only.

    Now you asked where are the other videos of the same hate messages. I ask you where are the videos of any Love of Jesus Christ for ALL mankind? Let me guess, they don't exist.

    As to the retraction of the NYT,
    it was for the statement of one specific date not the entire connection of the Left Rev. Wright and Obama.
    Your argument will not fly regardless of your mis-information from the daily kos.

  16. What I am wondering is if this is truly a "security issue" or if this is Senator Obama's good friend and pastor lying low in a state he could very well win so long as people don't realize what a twisted philosophy he's touting. What exactly does the Rev. think is going to happen? Hoards of rhythmically impaired white people eating Wonder Bread and mayonnaise sandwiches are going to assault him with country western music? Please. This is simply good political handling that gives the alleged conservative base a slap in the face for potential unidentified racist activities while hiding the radical words of Rev. Wright from the glare of the press. Feet of clay, folks, he has feet of clay. BTW-this isn't anything particularly new in religious circles. Many opportunistic Persons of Faith will make bold claims if it fills up the collection plate. I find it very interesting that the Rev. Wright, who so boldly casts out against "middleclassedness" is himself moving into a $1.6 million dollar home in suburban Chicago. Now what was that gospel again about you shall know them by their fruit and false prophets? How about the one about it being harder for a rich man to enter heaven than for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle? The Gospel of Self is all about personality and not so much about humanity.

  17. Pundits are still excusing Wright's anti-american behavior, and accepting Obama's acceptance of it.

    I certainly question the Obama's love of this country. They are angry, they are invested in passing the anger along and they believe they are building a power base.

    Keep blogging. Pieces like this lay it on the line.

  18. I was wondering why so many of the media refuse to tell the truth. Is it because of the all might money? To sell more newspapers and news programs? Is it like mission impossible to be honey and tell the truth.

    So, if given the truth, will you report it?

    See the truth! FOX News Lies!! Irresponsible Media! Barack Obama’s Pastor Wright

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOdlnzkeoyQ

    In his sermon, Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright was quoting Edward Peck, former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq, who was appearing on Fox News. So why did they edited the video and lie about the issue?

    While you're at it, you can report the truth about this story as well.

    Clinton camp made promises to Canada about NAFTA!
