Obama remembers a sermon by Rev. Jeremiah Wright:
"... It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-a-Prince see in a year, where white folks' greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere ... That's the world! On which hope sits."
And so it went, a meditation on a fallen world. While the boys next to me doodled on their church bulletin, Reverend Wright spoke of Sharpesville and Hiroshima, the callousness of policy makers in the White House and in the State House. ... [E.A.]
Sounds controversial! Keep in mind: a) Obama isn't disapproving of this sermon. In the book he weeps at the end of it...

1.) "This quotation is at the heart of the afrocentric philosophy that Obama says drew him to the church."
2.) "In his March 18th race speech Obama reads the passage from his book that describes his emotional reaction to this very sermon (his "first sermon at Trinity") -- how it made "the story of a people" seem "black and more than black."'
3.) "Wright's sermon at Obama's very first service, highlighted in his book and his 3/18 speech as an epiphanic moment, was controversial and objectionable enough. And it didn't make him leave the church. It made him join the church."
4.) "... the "white folks greed" line and the Haiti reference do not appear in the seemingly official version of the sermon. But Obama has them in his book within quotation marks."
Add to all of this:
A.) Obama used the words "typical white person" in reference to his white grandmother.
Obama would never say "typical black person."
B.) Obama still didn't leave his church even after the anti-white, racist Louis Farrakhan was given a lifetime achievement award at Trinity United in 2007.
D.) The links below, it becomes clear that OBama stereotypes white people, and has racist tendencies.
Shocking Obama Words: What He Really Thinks Of White Folks
“White Folks Greed...”
“White folk’s greed”—well, I still think Wright looks a lot whiter than Obama. The first time I saw him on TV I thought he was a fat white guy acting black. And from the look of what he takes from his church, his million-dollar mansion among the White Golfing Folk—I guess Wright knows whereof he speaks.
Reverend Wright isn’t greedy though, he deserves his 2 million dollar home & 10 million dollar credit line. Wonder if he’s offered anyone from Port au Prince a room??
Is this the Reverend Obama didn't know?
WHITE MANS GREED? What do you call his palace in a white gated community, black mans reparations?
WHAT A BUNCH OF STINKING HYPOCRITES!
You mean to tell me any self respecting black man can’t see this hypocracy! racking in the dollars from his poor congregationists to self adorn himself with riches he deserves while pointing to the rich white man as the problem in America.
So, if Obama is only 25% black does that mean he's 75% greedy?
Obama knew exactly what he was getting with Rev. Wright.
OBama can say that he is being smeared all he wants, but he just doesn’t want it to be known that he is a racist and has hung around racists.
No food? Well I guess they need to be glad they were moved over to this better-hemisphere than reside in that old country hemisphere.
Lets see, how did that happen? They were sold into slavery (by their own kind) and brought here to the USA.
But they will complain about that one too!
Typical greedy white person.
The average chicken shack in the poorest US community throws away more food left uneaten by its poverty-stricken patrons in a day than the average resident of Port-au-Prince sees in a year.
Those cruise ships are owned by other countries..
I’m sure they can be shamed into sending the food to the good folks of Port-a-Prince ..
And, me, a greedy typical white person who is somebody’s grandmother..
I’m paying my taxes each year as fast as I can..
I pay for midnight basketball, and put sevaral illegal aliens through college...
And I dont throw away a ship load of food..
Anything else I should be doing ??????????
Yes, publicly begging for forgivness for being born white, kiss the boots of all democrat black leaders, and then donating all your money to a black reparations fund. Then, you must offer your service free of charge, to work in Barack Hussein Obama’s campaign. That may do it, although you may have to continue to kiss their boots every day for the rest of your life
I’ve heard enough from Jeremiah Wright and Obama.
In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obamas pastor in a heated interview about his Churchs teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...
Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.
The Real Story Behind Rev. Wright's Controversial Black Liberation Theology Doctrine

(some key excerpts)
JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO NETWORK: "Liberation theology in Nicaragua in the mid-1980's was a pro-Sandinista, pro-Marxist, anti-U.S., anti-Catholic Church movement. That's it. No ifs, ands, or buts. His church apparently supported, in the mid-'80s in Nicaragua, groups that supported the Sandinista dictatorships and that were opposed to the Contras whose reason for being was calling for elections. That's all I know. I was there.
I saw the churches in Nicaragua that he spoke of, and the churches were churches that talked about the need for violent revolution and I remember clearly one of the major churches in Managua where the Jesus Christ on the altar was not Jesus Christ, he was a Sandinista soldier, and the priests talked about the corruption of the West, talked about the need for revolution everywhere, and talked about 'the evil empire' which was the United States of America."
REV. BOB SCHENCK, NATIONAL CLERGY COUNCIL: "it's based in Marxism. At the core of his [Wright's] theology is really an anti-Christian understanding of God, and as part of a long history of individuals who actually advocate using violence in overthrowing those they perceive to be oppressing them, even acts of murder have been defended by followers of liberation theology. That's very, very dangerous."
SCHENCK: "I was actually the only person escorted to Dr. Wright. He asked to see me, and I simply welcomed him to Washington, and then I said Dr. Wright, I want to bring you a warning: your embrace of Marxist liberation theology. It is contrary to the Gospel, and you need, sir, to abandon it. And at that he dropped the handshake and made it clear that he was not in the mood to dialogue on that point."

From the Louis Farrakhan/Nation of Islam website, Final Call...
Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We are happy today to be standing side by side with the Nation of Islam. We believe, like the Nation of Islam and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad believe, in a nation of our own. We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology. We dont worry about the criticism. We love all of those who labored in the Panther Party from the 60s. Many are with us today."
From the Maoist Internationist Movement:
[1960s] Black Panther Party [BPP] Archives
From the article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROES
"On May 1st, May Day , the day of the gigantic Free Huey rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo.
Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him.
The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology."
To these brothers the revolutionary people of racist America want to say, by your revolutionary deed you are heroes, and that you are always welcome to our camp."

Article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROS (May 11, 1969):
Louis Farrakhan, at the annual Saviours' Day celebration in Chicago, Feb. 25, 2008: "This young man is the hope of the entire world that America will change and be made better"..."If you look at Barack Obama's audiences and look at the effect of his words, those people are being transformed."
Louis Farrakhan, at the Millions More Movement rally in DC, Oct 15, 2005: "...what Mao Tse Tung did was, he went to the cultural community, and they [Farrakhan spreads his arms beneficently] accepted his idea."..."Mao Tse Tung ... had a billion people whose lives he had to transform."..."the idea of Mao Tse Tung became the idea of a billion people, and China became a world power on the base of the culture and the arts community. If we had a ministry of art and culture in every city we'd create this movement [in the U.S.]."
Louis Farrakhan, Santiago de Cuba, February, 1998: "There is not a member of the black masses in the United States who is not proud of the example set by Cuba and its revolution, with Comandante Fidel at its head"
Unfortunately for Haitians, their country is run by people who think just like Rev. Wright.
Obama claims that he was never a muslim and has been a Christian and IS a committed Christian.
Since he said that it was Wright who brought him to Christ, what was he before that day? A non-active Christian? When did his observance lapse? Which of his parents or grandparents raised him as a Christian?
He claims his fathers were non-observant muslims and that the school paperwork identifying him as a muslim was in error.
yeah but Pfather Pfleger has a KING SIZE bed.
When the bus coming down my street ??????????
When IS the bus coming down my street ??????????
His website claims that his book has been excerpted “out of context” (there is that defense again, goes right along with “not the man I knew”).
“He’s ridin’ dirty!”
Very well done video that can be passed along, I just received it this morning and it is good, all about Obama...plus explains things like Black Liberation Theology, Markism and more...great to help convince those that are foaming at the mouth for Obama....without having to say a word, just let them watch....
He then lied when he said the majority of times he was there Wright spoke of Jesus and love. There’s a clip of him saying that in this video link along with multiple quotes from Dreams of My Father and Reverend Wright.
There is definitely creme in Wright’s coffee.
Obama then must give what he says is the true context.
And he must do this on national TV.
Secondly, Obama must give a reason why he would join the church after he heard that sermon, given that at that moment he knew that Rev. Wright was a racist - when Wright used words like “white folks greed.”
Obama, according to that last link, still has not offered an explanation as to why he joined or was drawn to joining Wright’s church after he heard that racist sermon in which it was said, “white folks greed...”
You are one tough nana!
Does that mean that J.Wright’s lineage has a whitey in the woodpile?
Do you trust them with your credit card?
Succinct and to the point...
And the sad answer -- I haven't a clue...
This video and link is dead. It says removed by owner. So the net is being cleansed.
by the Obama police.
White Folks Greed...
An old post that I have been thinking a lot about this week. I've been wondering, when Barack Obama heard this sermon by Reverend Wright, did he shout, "Amen" like we used to do at my old Pentecostal church?
Did our President to be, the leader of all Americans, say, "Amen" to this racist sermon? If so, why does he hate me, a white man who has only loved my black friends, so very much?
Was Michelle there, and did she say, "Amen"?
Amen, that traditional word of assent to the preaching, a witness to belief in the spoken word's truth? So be it! Do you, Mrs. Obama, think my greed runs a world in need? What have I done to you to deserve this reproach?
I have lived a sheltered life. I never believed for a moment that I was hated because of my skin color by anyone. But there it is. Evidently my white 'greed' is now going to require my sweat and toil in order to fill public coffers to appease those I have offended. The fruit of my toil, I am evidently unworthy to make full use of in liberty. I will pay a price for my unknowing greed.
Now, I'm wondering, when will I have paid enough?
