Team Obama Offered Rev. Wright a $150,000 Bribe to Shut Up & Go Away in 2008 After Sermon Videos Surfaced
It would appear that Barack Obama’s chickens are coming home to roost … Where was the MSM covering this story?
According to the New York Post, in 2008 the Obama campaign offered the Reverend Jeremiah Wright $150,000 to shut up and go away after videos surfaced of Wright ranting “God damn America” from the pulpit. The very pulpit of the church that Barack Hussein Obama attended for 20 years. Let us not forget when pastor Wright states, “all white people are liars”. It would seem that Obama’s campaign had to distance themselves at all cost and get away from Rev. Wright and his inflammatory words. At all cost, Obama’s minions could not let the truth come out about Barack Oabma’s past and affiliations.
When sermons of Obama’s Chicago pastor, Jeremiah Wright, surfaced during the Iowa primaries, it threatened to derail Obama’s campaign. ABC aired one where Wright screamed, “Goddamn America!” Edward Klein interviewed Wright, who told him Obama’s team tried to buy his silence.
‘Man, the media ate me alive,” Wright told me when we met in his office at Chicago’s Kwame Nkrumah Academy. “After the media went ballistic on me, I received an e-mail offering me money not to preach at all until the November presidential election.”
“Who sent the e-mail?” I asked Wright.
“It was from one of Barack’s closest friends.”
“He offered you money?”
“Not directly,” Wright said. “He sent the offer to one of the members of the church, who sent it to me.”
“How much money did he offer you?”
“One hundred and fifty thousand dollars,” Wright said.
“Did Obama himself ever make an effort to see you?”
“Yes,” Wright said. “Barack said he wanted to meet me in secret, in a secure place.
Obviously the Rev. Wright did not take it, so the in the tank media for Obama made a conscious effort never to press candidate Obama on his association with Wright and the fact that Obama spent 20 years in the pews and never heard such comments.Instead, Obama threw Wright under the bus.
As stated by Legal Insurrection, the Washington Post was so quick to write on the bogus Mitt Romney’s bullying BS story. But what else would we expect from a bias, liberal MSM who at all cost will do anything for an Obama reelection?
The Washington Post, all too happy to cover in detail the now-discredited story about Romney’s supposed bully incident, has yet to report on the story. Perhaps they’re still busy re-editing their myriad Romney hit pieces.
