Did Obama Lie about Hearing or Attending Racially Charged Sermons from Reverend Wright?


OBAMAGATE –  Did Barack Obama lie when he said he never attended a sermons of pastor Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. preach hatred of America? Is this really CHANGE? Will the excuses and back tracking just be the same old political dance?

The Reverend Wright, formerly of the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, and his close ties with Democratic Presidential hopeful Barack Obama have certainly been in the news recently. The fire storm created by Wright’s anti-White and anti-American comments certainly need to be explained by Obama. Although Obama has distanced himself from Wright and the comments … Obama has much, much more explaining.

Obama has stated that he strongly disagrees with Wright’s inflammatory comments and that he never attended any church services with such hate filled sermons. Who is the real Barack Obama? Is is really believable that in nearly 20 years of attending services that Barack Obama never sat through any of the services by Reverend Wright that were hate-filled? Does’t the comments from Michelle Obama against the United States now make a bit more sense knowing that she had witnessed the sermons of Reverend Wright?

Appearing on cable news shows this past weekend, Obama claimed when he saw recent videos that have Wright making such comments as “God damn America,” he was “shocked.” Obama implied that the reverend had not used such derogatory language in any of the church services Obama attended over the past two decades.

Take a good listen and decide for yourself whether you believe such passionate comments by Reverend Wright were on a one or two time event. Or was this a constant message?

Now comes the story from News Max.com where it is being reported that Barack Obama did sit in the pews during one of pastor Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. sermons preaching hatred of America. Is Barack Obama lying? It is unbelievable to even comprehend that Obama could have missed the only sermons where Wright made such comments and that this was not a normal message from this pastor.

Also read the opinions of Bill Kristol at The NY Times … Generation Obama? Perhaps Not.

This doesn’t mean that Obama agrees with Wright’s thoroughgoing and conspiracy-heavy anti-Americanism. Rather, Obama seems to have seen, early in his career, the utility of joining a prominent church that would help him establish political roots in the community in which he lives. Now he sees the utility of distancing himself from that church. Obama’s behavior in dealing with Wright is consistent with that of a politician who often voted “present” in the Illinois State Legislature for the sake of his future political viability.

The more you learn about him, the more Obama seems to be a conventionally opportunistic politician, impressively smart and disciplined, who has put together a good political career and a terrific presidential campaign. But there’s not much audacity of hope there. There’s the calculation of ambition, and the construction of artifice, mixed in with a dash of deceit — all covered over with the great conceit that this campaign, and this candidate, are different.

Publius Pundit: Obamagate, Part III: Barack Obama, Boldfaced Liar

So let’s be crystal clear: When Obama says he never heard this kind of rhetoric from Wright, he’s simply lying, and when he claims he’s a candidate who stands for “change” he couldn’t be more disingenuous. Who knows how many other such services he attended when reporters didn’t happen to be around. If Obama can lie so brazenly, and so freely spurn the pastor he’s spent his whole adult life adoring, then how can we believe he’ll stick to any promise he may make now about governing the whole country and rejecting Wright’s venomous ideology when president?

Q and O: Obama: I’ve never heard Rev. Wright speak like that – well, ok, except that time …”

20 years of friendship and spitatual advising. This is not just a contoversial pastor who has endorsed Obama, but a confidant. CHANGE? Is Obama really ready or even capable to lead all?

      Any consideration I might have given this man for my vote has totally disappeared. As more comes to light about his background, it would appear that he is unAmerican and unpatriotic and unChristian. Not salute the flag during the Pledge of Allegiance; be so adamant about not wearing an American flag pin – what’s behind that? Having a wife not be proud of all of this country’s accomplishments? If it were not for some of those accomplishments, both him and his wife would never be in the position they are now. He seems like a dangerous candidate now who would be welcomed by the Muslim world. Also, some of his famous supporters have questionable backgrounds, too – including his supposedly Christian church. Nope, not for me anymore (and I did support him in the primary.)

    2. brie on March 17th, 2008 8:44 am

      I would never,never,never vote for Obama….and it makes me sick that the Democrats would even support a man that refuses to salute the American Flag and everything it stands for….

    3. SUPER DAVE on March 17th, 2008 8:59 am

      where do you think his wife got her attitude ? my guess is that he goes hand in hand with this so called pastor. i call him a racist !

    4. katablog on March 17th, 2008 9:00 am

      It defies belief that one could attend a church for 20 years and not know their own paster was an extreme racist and foul mouthed to boot.

      A swear word is something that might slip from one’s mouth when they get worked up about something; racist speech like Wright’s is something that permeates the very core of a person and it’s not a slip or something that he says every once in awhile.

      Again, why is the MSM just cluing into this? It’s certainly about time.

      As others have said, the very fact that Obama won’t salute the American Flag is enough to disqualify him as President for me.

    5. Richard on March 17th, 2008 9:02 am

      There’s a story out today that Obama’s pastor/spiritual advisor, or whatever he is, has removed some of the inflammatory comments from his Web site.

      Well, so what? He said what he said … another case of being in the modern world, where what matters is not what you believe, but what becomes known. Something bad gets out? Here come the PR spin guys … make a ‘new image.’

      The media is hoist on its own petard, in a way … Obama came out with the catchy and empty slogan of being the candidate for change (well, that can mean whatever you want it to mean, and who doesn’t want change?), and was embraced by those who think an advertising label is all that matters.

      Now he’s being shown to be just another sleazy politician.

      My vote: let’s postpone the election. It gets more sickening every day.

      While we’re at it, let’s undo the whole 21st century; I honestly can’t think of anything good that has happened yet.

    6. SUPER DAVE on March 17th, 2008 9:26 am

      the menu we have to choose from is a poor one to say the least. we should be able to withold our vote for a new round of candidates.
      i would hate to know that we would have a worse leader than we have now !

    7. Jerry from Ohio on March 17th, 2008 9:58 am

      Well this is certainly a reflection that many many politicians believe that we the American people lack the intelligence to see what lies and misdirections that we will as a nation accept with out much question.
      For as many people that I have heard complain and gripe about what is happening far too few will step up and try to make the changes necessary to bring about meaningful changes in our political system .
      I also see this in our legal system no one wants to admit that we need to recind many of our laws to help clear our totally overcrowded courts and to allow us to remove judges that just slap criminals hands that prey upon some of our most vulnerable citizens IE: Seniors ,the disabled and the poor .

      Yeppers, Obama is lying about everything! There’s no way in hell Osama (oops, I meant Obama) could not have known what hateful, hypocritical, racist sermons his pastor (aka mentor) was preaching! Osama has always known what Jeremiah Wright (but oh how WRONG he really is) stands for, RACISM! I’ve never known a “man of God” to act so UnGodly :-(

      It’s time to step down Osama Barack Hussein Obama! Do it gracefully please :-)

    10. brie on March 17th, 2008 11:58 am

      When I went to vote at the primaries I was asked before I received my ballot if I was a Republican or Democrat, I answered. The reply I got as I handed the ballot was, “hmmm”. The man behind me was asked the same question and he replied, the woman said with her thumbs up in the air, “hot damn”. I think she was about 90 yrs old, God love her she is still hanging strong. Just thought you might enjoy the story!!!

    11. MissKatiekatie2u on March 17th, 2008 12:07 pm

    13. brie on March 17th, 2008 12:16 pm

      Obama followers had better wake up….you have no idea what we would be in for….what does Obama have in mind to replace the American Flag, since he won’t salute to it….what a complete vile and intolerant person he is….certainly not dedicated to America and our forefathers…somebody needs to send him to Iraq…I vote to put him in the front lines and demand he carries the American Flag in the middle of battle….Democrats need to unload that scumbag!!!

    14. JORAN IS A PIG and SO IS PAULUS on March 17th, 2008 12:22 pm

      OBAMA is done

      stick a fork in him

    15. brie on March 17th, 2008 12:26 pm


    16. brie on March 17th, 2008 12:55 pm

      Yeah, Obama leaves to live in Aruba and joins all the sorry asses…..!!! I will chip in on the ticket! One way of course…

    17. Richard on March 17th, 2008 2:03 pm

      I’ve already nominated moderator Klaasen for vice president. Perhaps a promotion is in order?

    18. Miklo on March 17th, 2008 4:43 pm

      Nevertheless, isn’t it time to give this subject a rest?

      No one person can be held accountable for something another person has said…

    19. bob on March 17th, 2008 6:57 pm

      I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Obama was advising his pastor on just what to say for all those 20 years.

    20. A New Girl on March 17th, 2008 7:01 pm

      Not only has Wright proven to be a huge political liability for Obama….looks as if Michelle Obama has been hurting Barrack more than helping him also…..Bill does the same thing to Hillary.

      Time to drop the racist card though, and Hillary really has been given a harder time just for being a woman= sexism.

      For the first time since being old enough to vote…I really don’t know who I will be pushing that lever for…..


    21. JORAN IS A PIG and SO IS PAULUS on March 17th, 2008 7:55 pm

      i think the USA will be in a world of hurt if either Hillary or Obama were to become the president. they are both idiots

    22. misskatie on March 17th, 2008 8:04 pm

      send that pastor wright and obama to iraq

      dont forget his wife
      shes as useless as a limp dish rag
      all they can talk about slavery and white supremecy to them
      poor me poor me pour me another drink…

    23. maryd on March 17th, 2008 9:00 pm

      #6. Super Dave
      I second that motion. We are between a rock and a hard place. But Obama’s Pastor really did him in with his hate mongoring. Obama has been exposed and I can’t imagine how he’ll wiggle out of this one.

    24. katablog.com on March 17th, 2008 9:12 pm

      #6 & #7: Right on. I only wish it could happen. My vote is NOTA

      #18: say what? Of course you can hold people responsible for what their “mentor” says and does, especially when he says and does it over and over and over. And, especially when the behavior of the person being mentored proves to be in line with the mentor.

    25. JORAN IS A PIG and SO IS PAULUS on March 17th, 2008 9:51 pm

      if someone goes to a weekly town meeting and the people in the meeting keep saying bad things
      week after week after week about how hitler was a great leader and you keep going to the meetings for years ONE might assume you think that hitler was good for the human race..

      Obama is done – toast- adios- bye bye – seeya later, goose is cooked, chickens are coming home to roost.

    26. Dan on March 17th, 2008 11:16 pm

      I think everyone here is correct, obama will bring this country to its knee’s if elected or at least try to. For him not to salute the flag and cover his heart when the pledge of alliegence is being said tells a lot. His wife commenting that only now she is proud of the USA, why now? His followers definately need to wake up. I never have liked him and never will, there is evil in his eye’s if you look hard enough, he has an aganda, but the question is, what? I guarantee its not for the people of the USA………….. However, he does make a dynamite back drop for my dart board, lol,lol……….

    27. Jerry from Ohio on March 18th, 2008 5:32 am

      This whole election reminds me of a Song that was written and sung by an artist named Barry McGuire in the Sixty’s but is very true today also, I quote,
      ” Now ya don’t believe were on the Eve of destruction ” Taken from the song (Eve of Destruction) We are down to voting for the best of the worst . We all should stop worrying about whether the next Pres is Democrat or Republican people, we have a lot more problems then that !
      You don’t think that the other countries that disagree with our philosophy’s aren’t snickering at both in front and behind closed doors ? My lord, I do think that we are doing ourselves in from the inside out.

    28. SUPER DAVE on March 18th, 2008 3:36 pm

      sounds like wright HATES us good white folk. now can you hate and be a preacher hiding behind the pulpit ? i had a wright working for me one time a few years ago and supposedly a reverend.(isn’t this what he calls himself ?) the bastard took all my cash and credit cards from my office and had 300.00 worth of sex phone calls ! GOOD REVEREND !

    29. World Observer on March 29th, 2008 12:30 am

      For 20 long years..hmmmm.

      Of course Obama lied about Mr.Wright and if anyone thinks otherwise then they believe pigs fly too !!

    30. Drinking the Kooliad on June 19th, 2008 5:35 pm

      Get a clue y’all. Wright is like the cranky old racist uncle. Like he said, he couldn’t disown him any more than his own racist grandmother! He went to a church that had a pastor that spoke his mind. He didn’t have to agree with what was said, just as I don’t agree with everything mine says. Open your minds! What a bunch of repugnican sheeple!
