Obama’s Racist, Anti-American Spiritual Mentor

Posted by Tony Listi on March 13, 2008

 The Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright (left), pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, with Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Wright blames America for 9/11. “God damn America”

Jeremiah Wright is like an “old uncle who sometimes says things I don’t agree with”? Then why does he have a formal role on the Obama campaign? Words matter Barack! You of all people should realize that.

Wright explains his perverse racial theology and attacks Hillary Clinton for being white.

The New York Times attempts to defend Obama. Are we really to believe that Obama can have such a close association with Mr. Wright and yet not hold any of his racist, anti-American views? Obama handpicked this church and this pastor out of many! Obama sat in Wright’s pews for 20 years! He was baptized at this church. He and Michelle were married at this church. Their children were baptized at this church. Obama had 20 years to distance himself from Wright and TUCC; we have no reason to believe his repudiations during campaign season are anything but statements of political expediency.
