MEDIA ALERT: Charmaine on FOX, Cavuto Obama and Wright: Do They Hate America?
Trinity United Church of Christ/Religion News Service
Sen. Barack Obama and the Rev. Jeremiah Wright God D@mn America,
God D@mn America,
God D@mn America…
The “Reverend” Jeremiah Wright cussing for the congregation.
“We started the AIDS virus…
America is still the No. 1 killer in the world…
We supported Zionism shamelessly while ignoring the Palestinians”
Hussein X. Obama tithed some $22,000 to Wright’s church to enable him to use other profanities such as “SH!T” from the preacher’s podium.
“Elmer Gantry” Wright gives new meaning to “Bully Pulpit.”
Charmaine will have a one on one interview with Neil Cavuto to discuss the impact of Obama’s pastor’s statements and whether it will negatively impact Obama in the general election. Check local cable listing for Your World with Neil Cavuto.
Ronald Reagan said that personnel is policy. Obama is constantly telling us that he would surround himself with capable advisors. Because “Reverend” Wright has been one of them, the country should be worried.
Anyone who gets recruited for a top management job is hired for his wisdom and judgment. Obama admitted he’s not old enough to display any wisdom to compete with McCain. Now Obama is demonstrating he doesn’t have any judgment either.

Charmaine at Princeton UniversityThank you (foot)notes:
See RONALD KESSLER’s article in The Wall Street Journal. At the jump, Mr. Obama consulted Mr. Wright before deciding to run for president. And now Obama doesn’t wear an American flag lapel pin. Mrs. Michelle X. Obama is not too happy with America either. Watch the video.
If Obama doesn’t win and McCain does, Wright’s first sermon might well be To H3LL With The Chief…
Charmaine served as a senior advisor to the Huckabee for President campaign.
Obama and the Minister, By RONALD KESSLER, March 14, 2008; Page A19In a sermon delivered at Howard University, Barack Obama’s longtime minister, friend and adviser blamed America for starting the AIDS virus, training professional killers, importing drugs and creating a racist society that would never elect a black candidate president.
The Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., pastor of Mr. Obama’s Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, gave the sermon at the school’s Andrew Rankin Memorial Chapel in Washington on Jan. 15, 2006.
“Racism is alive and well. Racism is how this country was founded and how this country is still run. No black man will ever be considered for president, no matter how hard you run Jesse [Jackson] and no black woman can ever be considered for anything outside what she can give with her body.”
… “America is still the No. 1 killer in the world. . . . We are deeply involved in the importing of drugs, the exporting of guns, and the training of professional killers . . . We bombed Cambodia, Iraq and Nicaragua, killing women and children while trying to get public opinion turned against Castro and Ghadhafi . . . We put [Nelson] Mandela in prison and supported apartheid the whole 27 years he was there. We believe in white supremacy and black inferiority and believe it more than we believe in God.”
…Mr. Wright said, “We supported Zionism shamelessly while ignoring the Palestinians and branding anybody who spoke out against it as being anti-Semitic. . . . We care nothing about human life if the end justifies the means. . . .”
…”We started the AIDS virus . . . We are only able to maintain our level of living by making sure that Third World people live in grinding poverty. . . .”
…Mr. Wright said of Mr. Farrakhan. “He brings a perspective that is helpful and honest.”
After Newsmax broke the story of the award to Farrakhan on Jan. 14, Mr. Obama issued a statement. However, Mr. Obama ignored the main point: that his minister and friend had spoken adoringly of Mr. Farrakhan, and that Mr. Wright’s church was behind the award to the Nation of Islam leader.
As for Mr. Wright’s repeated comments blaming America for the 9/11 attacks because of what Mr. Wright calls its racist and violent policies, Mr. Obama has said it sounds as if the minister was trying to be “provocative.”
Hearing Mr. Wright’s venomous and paranoid denunciations of this country, the vast majority of Americans would walk out. Instead, Mr. Obama and his wife Michelle have presumably sat through numerous similar sermons by Mr. Wright.
Indeed, Mr. Obama has described Mr. Wright as his “sounding board” during the two decades he has known him. Mr. Obama has said he found religion through the minister in the 1980s. He joined the church in 1991 and walked down the aisle in a formal commitment of faith.
The title of Mr. Obama’s bestseller “The Audacity of Hope” comes from one of Wright’s sermons. Mr. Wright is one of the first people Mr. Obama thanked after his election to the Senate in 2004. Mr. Obama consulted Mr. Wright before deciding to run for president. He prayed privately with Mr. Wright before announcing his candidacy last year.
Mr. Obama obviously would not choose to belong to Mr. Wright’s church and seek his advice unless he agreed with at least some of his views. In light of Mr. Wright’s perspective, Michelle Obama’s comment that she feels proud of America for the first time in her adult life makes perfect sense.
The media have largely ignored Mr. Obama’s close association with Mr. Wright. This raises legitimate questions about Mr. Obama’s fundamental beliefs about his country. Those questions deserve a clearer answer than Mr. Obama has provided so far.
