Uh Oh, The Messiah & The Reverend Set To Battle On Pay-Per-View!
Posted by Casey on April 29, 2008
If only we were so lucky to see that title fight (my money would be on Wright). At least we get to see them battle it out in words for free through the media.
Apparently Obama is uber pissed at being called a liar by Rev. Wright last weekend among other comments. Only a true racist, as Wright is, would see the legitimate attacks on him as an attack on the black church and community as a whole.
Enter Obama … who finally grew a pair after being scolded for not doing this months ago.
Democrat Barack Obama said Tuesday he was outraged and appalled by the latest comments from his former pastor, who asserted that criticism of his fiery sermons is an attack on the black church and the U.S. government was responsible for the creation of the AIDS virus.
The presidential candidate is seeking to tamp down the growing fury over Rev. Jeremiah Wright and his incendiary remarks that threaten to undermine his campaign.
It’s good that Obama finally did this, but again … what took him so long? We all know the answer to that. Even if some don’t want to admit what is in front of their face.
I’m also glad he admitted anger at the AIDS comments Wright has been making … finally. For those of you who don’t know, the whole the US created AIDS thing was a Soviet propaganda campaign. Yep, the Soviets set out to demonize the US by saying we created AIDS. They did it in 1985 in a Soviet paper called Literary Gazette.
Wright also said the attacks on him were from cherry picked statements. Even if that were true … so what. Those are some damn harsh cherry picked comments there buddy. I guess Michael Richards dropping the N-bombs were just cherry picked also. Well, it turns out that they weren’t so cherry picked after all (h/t GP).
Please do go listen to some of Wright’s other racist comments over the weekend here.
Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
