Will Obama Take another Vacation? Woops He Did it Again … Reverend Wright Slurs Italians … “The Italians for the most part looked down their garlic noses …”
Why will the Reverend Wright’s comments not go away and will continually haunt and damage Barack Obama. Its the cockroach theory. To Hillary Clinton and especially John McCain, Reverend Wright is the gift that keeps on giving.
For all those that think that Reverend Wright’s recent anti-American and racist comments that caused a fire storm for Barack Obama were a one time incident … THINK AGAIN! Where there is smoke, there is fire. Where there is one cockroach, there are many more thousand in the wall not seen.
This time the Reverend Wright, Barack Obama’s religious and spiritual adviser, made a slur against Italians. What’s next … racial slurs against Jews, Irish and the Polish? How could anyone call themselves a man of God, preaching the word of God and be consumed with so much hate, jealously and divisiveness? Better yet, how did Barack Obama just sit idlely by and do nothing? One thing is for certain, who honestly believes that one could listen and be a part of a church for so long with a message of hate and really be able to be a leader of all people? Obama states that Wright introduced him to God. And your point is Barack? Jim Jones and David Koresh introduced many people to God as well.
Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., pastor emeritus of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago where Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) has been a member for two decades, slurred Italians in a piece published in the most recent issue of Trumpet Newsmagazine.
“(Jesus’) enemies had their opinion about Him,” Wright wrote in a eulogy of the late scholar Asa Hilliard in the November/December 2007 issue. “The Italians for the most part looked down their garlic noses at the Galileans.”
Wright continued, “From the circumstances surrounding Jesus’ birth (in a barn in a township that was under the Apartheid Roman government that said his daddy had to be in), up to and including the circumstances surrounding Jesus’ death on a cross, a Roman cross, public lynching Italian style. … (CNS News)
Obama’s pastor further went on to say the following:
“In a world that is controlled by white supremacy, in a country that is on its way to hell in a hand basket because of lying politicians, in a culture that still thinks ‘white is right’ and with young people who do not have a clue as to our story, our history, our legacy or our destiny, we still have African-American Christians who are more concerned about ‘bling bling’ than about freeing our minds,” Wright wrote.
After calling Jesus’s crucifixion “a public lynching Italian style” executed in “Apartheid Rome,” he goes on to claim that white supremicists run the U.S. government:
“The government runs everything from the White House to the schoolhouse, from the Capitol to the Klan, white supremacy is clearly in charge, but Asa, like Jesus, refused to be defined by an oppressive government because Asa got his identity from an Omnipotent God.”
