Obama Pastor Reverend Wright Says His Words were Twisted … Whose Chickens are Coming Home to Roost?


It appears that Reverend Wright and Barack Obama’s chickens are coming home to roost. The 20 Obama_REV_Wrightyear relationship with Reverend Wright has many Americans scratching their heads and thinking twice about the judgement of candidate Obama.

Reverend Jeremiah A. Wright, the gift that keeps on giving. Or in the case of Barack Obama, the story that keeps rearing its ugly head. Barack Obama’s pastor for 20 years has come out of hiding and is now defending his comments as people trying to twist his words. Think the timing is not coincidental to Obama’s 10 point loss in the Pennsylvania Primary earlier this week? Think again.

Reverend Wright and Barack Obama are learning a valuable lesson in Freedom of Speech. You have the right to say anything and express an opinion. However, there are consequences. No one has to listen to you, no one has to agree with you and most importantly those opinions formulated from your speech will last a life time.

Listen to that speech, there is nothing redeeming about it.

Listen to Wrights words … think they are twisted? Or do you think Wright is just trying to spin his way out of a bad situation as Obama’s candidacy is taking the hit for them? JUST WORDS!!!

“I felt it was unfair,” Mr. Wright said, according to excerpts of the interview released Thursday. “I felt it was unjust. I felt it was untrue. I felt for those who were doing that, were doing it for some very devious reasons.”

In Mr. Wright’s sermons, he suggested that Americans bore some responsibility for the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, saying “America’s chickens are coming home to roost.” He also blamed the government for the spread of AIDS among African-Americans, characterized the United States government as corrupt and referred to the “U.S. of K.K.K. A.”

He did not apologize or back away from his remarks in the interview, instead saying that people wanted to paint him as “some sort of fanatic.”

“It’s to paint me as something — ‘Something’s wrong with me. There’s nothing wrong with this country … for its policies. We’re perfect. Our hands are free. Our hands have no blood on them,’” he said. “That’s not a failure to communicate. The message that is being communicated by the sound bites is exactly what those pushing those sound bites want to communicate.” (NY Times)

      Gotta read the part at the end where Wright says Obama is just saying what a politician HAS to say.

      How long will it be before Wright has a book out and is embarking on a nationwide lecture tour?

      Like everyone else, he’ll try to cash in on his sudden notoriety before he’s forgotten.

      its nothing but a steaming pant load of bullcrap
      from another racist… he is the racist

      How will Barack Obama defend his own racist words which reveal an ideology that reflects that of his pastor and mentor for twenty years … the Pastor Jeremiah Wright of Trinity United.

      Why has media sources, McCain and Clinton yet to expose or challenge this “wolf in sheep’s clothing” in regards to his own words?

      Something is not right. This man could be the next President of the United States of America!


      Audacity of Hope: “Lolo (Obama’s step father) followed a brand of Islam ….” “I looked to Lolo for guidance”.

      Dreams of my Father: “The person who made me proudest of all, though, was [half brother] Roy .. He converted to Islam.”

      Dreams of my Father: “In Indonesia, I had spent two years at a Muslim school”

      Dreams of my Father: “I Studied the Koran.”

      Audacity of Hope: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

      Dreams of My Father: “I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race”.

      Dreams of my Father: “The emotion between the races could never be pure….. the other race would always remain just that: menacing, alien, and apart.”

      Dreams of my Father: “Any distinction between good and bad whites held negligible meaning.”

      Dreams of My Father: “I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites”

      Dreams Of My Father: “I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa, that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself..”.

      Dreams of My Father: “That hate hadn’t gone away,” he wrote, blaming “white people — some cruel, some ignorant, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless image of a system claiming power over our lives.”

      Dreams of My Father: “There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying close together, traveling in packs,” he wrote. “It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names”

      Dreams of my Father: “Desperate times called for desperate measures, and for many blacks, times were chronically desperate. If nationalism could create a strong and effective insularity, deliver on its promise of self-respect, then the hurt it might cause well-meaning whites, or the inner turmoil it caused people like me, would be of little consequence.”

      Dreams of my Father: “To avoid being mistaken for a racial sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night, in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism, and patriarchy.”

      Dreams of my Father: “there was something about him that made me wary,” Obama wrote. “A little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.”

      Dreams of my Father: “the reason black people keep to themselves is that it’s easier than spending all your time mad, or trying to guess whatever it was that white folks were thinking about you.”

      Dreams of my Father: One line in Malcolm X’s autobiography “spoke” to Obama “it stayed with me,” he says. “He spoke of a wish he’d once had, the wish that the white blood that ran through him, there by an act of violence, might somehow be expunged.”

      I can do the uneducated minister tone of voice myself. With 14 ministers and evangelists on my biological fathers side I could not help learning to pick up the tone if I want it. When mocking them as they are drunk, low class, as bigots or acting almighty. The tone digs to my bones and ratchets around…I hate it. Obama has it. Wright in the tradition of wrong.

      But in the putrid “tone” if you can hear it, ‘I great Obama looove America, and seek to only change it’

    7. Open a Window on April 25th, 2008 10:57 pm

      Tamikosmom, wow, just wow! Thank you for putting that together for those of us who will never read the Obama “life history”.

      This is one very dangerous man.

    8. Scarrlett on April 26th, 2008 4:04 am

      I saw Wright in his interview and that devils tounge was sure smooth.He spoke so calm and soft..

      Sorry Dude…We do NOT buy it and I will never refer to you as a man of God.

      I have seen YOUR true colors and they do NOT come from heaven.

      How is it possible to twist the words “G..DAMN AMERICA” and “the US OF KKK A”? It’s impossible!! Reverend Jeremiah Wright (his last name should be “WRONG”) is backpeddling in a feeble attempt to help out his “protege”, Osama Barack Hussein Obama. Well, it’s not going to work :-)

      Jeremiah Wrong doesn’t deserve the privilege of using the title “Reverend”. True men (and women) of God don’t go around spewing the hateful, racist crap that comes out of his ugly mouth. Jeremiah Wrong is consumed with hate and jealousy.

      Jeremiah Wrong should never had said the ugly things he said about Natalee Holloway either!! Who the hell does he think he is anyway?? He’s the perfect example of a RACIST PIG!!

      Looks like it was the WRONG time for a WRIGHT interview…..

      his denial and insistence that he is being treated unfairly only helps to confirm the whole mess…..He’s in denial just like Obama is about his relationship and the influence this Pastor has had overall on many of the candidate’s warped insights.

      Mr. & Mrs. Obama’s negativity and huge character flaws do a fine enough job on their own turning off the American people, especially the working middle-class. Mr. Wright’s sermons of the past are again only solidifying more of the negative and there are not many who will not believe it has had an influence on the final product before us all today asking for his vote?? Please!

      I can only imagine the hatred that came out of that church on Sunday morning or any other time…aren’t you suppose to feel good when your preacher has given a sermon….Reverend Wrong is full of hate, blood and violence….and so is Obama…he would be a complete disaster to this country…he doesn’t respect America nor our forefathers who fought for our freedom….can’t salute the Flag….that just kills me….we have got veterans missing arms and legs, have been tortured in concentration camps, the nightmares they must have….fighting for their life to protect our country…I think the Democrats that have voted for him are blind, deaf and dumb…please no offense to our Scared Monkeys…

    12. brie. on April 26th, 2008 12:18 pm

      Too bad we don’t have Martin Luther King to take him on…. !!!! What a totally mean and nasty person…and Obama has listened to this for 20 years…where do you think that puts him…how in the world did he become a candidate…!!!!!That’s a bomb for sure…people think!!!!

    13. brie. on April 26th, 2008 12:36 pm

      I bet there is a lot of money missing out of that church….!!!!

    14. david r on April 26th, 2008 6:16 pm

      The Clintons could not have dreamed up such good political fodder as Rev. Wrong. The Republicans even had to pull one ad that McCain thought was piling on Obama. It showed Wright jumping around like a complete fool, spewing venom at the USA. We had a pastor once who was exposed as having multiple affairs with church women. He was given the boot, but apart from the participants, not that many people left the church over it. Wright is a different deal. We left a church once when it looked like the pastor and his wife were fleecing the congregation. Obama should have found a new church.
