Presidential dreamer Barack Obama, facing the possibility that his fight to be the symbolic head of America inc., forcefully and angrily repudiated his former pastor yesterday, saying he was appalled and outraged by a performance by Rev. Jeremiah Wright on Monday.
Obama Denounces Controversial Remarks
Obama reacted outraged after his aides showed him Reverend Wright’s speech at The National Press Club in Washington. The reaction was an acknowledgement by Obama of the damage done to his White House aspirations by a man who had been his pastor at Chicago Trinity United Church of Christ for 16 years and an associate for two decades. In return Obama has decided to throw Reverend Wright under the proverbial bus, if only to appease those who hated the fact that he, Obama, was besting more privileged and connected Hillary Clinton.
This latest attempt by the media and Corporate America Inc. is one of several repeated efforts by the White Supremacy system to disqualify him from the Democratic race. Instead of holding to the original script so eloquently put in an earlier nationally televised address, when he defended reverend Wright and challenged America Inc. to examine itself, Obama politically decided to embark on a very public divorce from his (former) pastor.
Of course in White Supremacist America Inc., Reverend Wright’s comments dominated television news coverage all day and were front-page news in most major newspapers. All the better to garner support from the ignorant masses as they attack Barack Obama, who has shown to be the most polished, eloquent and savvier candidate out there.
Barack Obama appeared angered that Reverend Wright had implied he, the senator, had distanced himself from the pastor’s previous controversial words only for political reasons. “At a certain point, if what somebody says contradicts what you believe so fundamentally, and then he questions whether or not you believe it in front of the National Press Club, then that’s enough,” Obama said.“I think that the sequence of events was the right one, because this is somebody who had married Michelle and I; who had baptized our children,” he said in an interview on CNN. “When those first snippets came out, I thought it was important to give him the benefit of the doubt. If I had wanted to be politically expedient, I would have distanced myself and denounced him right away. Right? That would have been the easy thing to do.” “That’s a show of disrespect to me. It is also, I think, an insult to what we’ve been trying to do in this campaign.”
The reality is that this two faced house Knee-grow is being disrespectful and insulting to African people while finally showing his true colors. Unfortunately Obama’s body of work can never compare to that of Reverend Wrights. The senator claims to be “Black”, but was never for African people, especially when it came to his political aspiration. Obama went on to say that Wright caricatured him by saying, “that was not the man he got to know at the Chicago church”.
In his zeal to distance himself from Reverend Wright the aspiring figure head failed to realize that (a) Reverend Wrights following is true and consistent. While his are bandwagon jumpers, dreamers hoping somebody “fresh”, can come and do the work they should be doing in fixing this long time broken shit-stem. (b) Those people who hate him will still hate him especially since his ass got exposed as some one willing to do anything to achieve a political agenda.
News flash Senator Obama, it is best your enemy hate you, but respect you for your truth of purpose. Respect you and fear you, like they do Reverend Wright, because they fear what issues he is raising and respect the fact that an elder with so much knowledge can be such a worthy enemy. They never respected you Obama, and they never feared you, because they already knew your measure.
Some of the other cur dog statement you made in trying to throw the wise elder under the bus included: “I have spent my entire adult life trying to bridge the gap between different kinds of people.” That’s in my DNA, trying to promote mutual understanding, to insist that we all share common hopes and common dreams as Americans and as human beings. “That’s who I am. (Monday), we saw a very different vision of America. I am outraged by the comments that were made and saddened over the spectacle that we saw.” Knee-grow please, acting like you never heard similar sentiments on Sundays when you sat in Reverend Wright’s pew. He called Wright’s answers to written questions from reporters “a bunch of rants.”
The White Supremacist America Inc. claimed that Wright had injected himself into the middle of the Democratic presidential race with a PBS interview, a major speech in Detroit and, then, his tour de force at the National Press Club Monday. Totally obscuring the reality that they sought out Reverend Wright, took his speeches out of context and tried to use it in a divisive way to ensure Obama’s campaign fails. Fully knowing that, the aspiring figurehead, instead of trying to man up, showed his true colors…and it wasn’t “Mulatto!”
Many of Obama’s mainly Anglo-Saxon supporters were outraged at the sight of an African man being forthright and uncompromising unlike Obama, who wavers and obfuscate. These supporters seriously believe that Wright’s speeches were undermining the money train they have tabbed as the first non Anglo-Saxon legitimate shot at the White House. The propaganda of showing Reverend Wright’s latest speech came just as Obama was seeking the elusive support of Anglo-Saxon, industrial workers in Indiana and North Carolina, where twin victories next Tuesday could essentially knock Hillary Clinton out of the Democratic race. Apparently some polls showed his lead over Clinton in North Carolina was already narrowing and she had recently picked up the endorsement of the state’s governor, Mike Easley.
“Whatever relationship I had with Rev. Wright has changed,” Obama said.”He didn’t show much regard for me or, more importantly, what we are trying to do for American people.” Still ranting with self righteous indignation, Obama said Wright offended him and all Americans. “He caricatured himself, and that made me angry, but that also made me sad.” What mattered to Rev. Wright was commanding centre stage.”
Obama said his relations with the church are now strained because this has become such a spectacle, he believes Reverend Wright, “had shown a complete disregard for the need of Americans to rally together to solve problems.” This is the same man who earlier defended Reverend right by saying that to reject him would be rejecting African American.
