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.

Agreed. It’s Lenin’s dictum, “the worse, the better.”
Too bad that a-hole was our presidential candidate. While he was laid up in the hosp having been shot down by the communist enemy in Vietnam, Obama's terrorists friends, Ayers and Dohrn, were waging war against military and law enforcement facilities here. They actually received rings of 'honor' for their aid and comfort of the North Vietnamese enemy. The rings were made of metal from US aircraft shot down during the war. How could McCain be such a wuss going after Obama?? His plane was shot down by the North Vietnamese!
"Americas chickens... are coming home... to ROOST!"
And don’t forget the million dollar house that the Rev White “retired” too....in a honky white gated community......was some pic posted on thrads here prior to the ‘08 fiasco.
Reference to Rainman. The character played by Dustin Hoffman actually reminds me of the real-life John McCain. I know, it’s autism, not mental retardation, but I was generalizing.
And I know I’m being unfair to those with autism. John McCain is worse. Far, far worse.
Interesting how nobody knows anybody else in Chicago. Obama doesn’t know Wright, he doesn’t know Ayers, he doesn’t know Farrakhan.
It’s one big left-wing cabal.
These guys support Obama because they know he’s one of them. It’s only the American public that doesn’t know it.
Well Wright did retire about that time, didn’t he? Having a huge mansion built...
Obama, Ayers, and Farrakhan all live within 2 blocks of each other
"It was at the Chicago home of [Bill] Ayers and [Bernardine] Dohrn that Obama, then an up-and-coming 'community organizer,' had his political coming out party in 1995. Not content with this rite of passage in Lefty World where unrepentant terrorists are regarded as progressive luminaries, still working 'only to educate' both Obamas tended to the relationship with the Ayers."

Ayers: Obama was 'family friend'
New afterword to 2001 book, Ayers describes Barack Obama as 'family friend'
From Investor's Business Daily (IBD), August 27, 2008:
"Ayers, now a tenured distinguished professor of education at UIC, works to educate teachers in socialist revolutionary ideology, urging that it be passed on to impressionable students.
One of Ayer's descriptions for a course called 'Improving Learning Environments' says prospective K-12 teachers need to 'be aware of the social and moral universe we inhabit and ... be a teacher capable of hope and struggle, outrage and action, teaching for social justice and liberation.
The Annenberg papers are quite extensive 132 boxes containing 947 file folders with 70 linear feet of material. They undoubtedly contain more surprises regarding Obama's relationship with Ayers, one of many relationships Obama has sought to hide.'..."

[Revolution] Interview with Bill Ayers, Revolution #63, October 1, 2006:
"On Progressive Education, Critical Thinking and the Cowardice of Some in Dangerous Times"
The RCP calls for the violent overthrow of the U.S. government...
From the website of the Revolutionary Communist Party (revcom.us or rwor.org) :
"Create Public Opinion, Seize Power: We are preparing minds and organizing forces for the time when there is a major crack in the system, whenever it comes and wherever it comes from: an opening that makes it possible to bring the future Revolutionary Army of the Proletariat (R.A.P.) into the field and wage a revolutionary armed struggle that actually has a chance of winning.
And we have said that building our party itself is the most important part of organizing forces for revolution. This is true now, and it is true looking forward to the creation of that future R.A.P. and the waging of that armed struggle.":

The O'Reilly Factor confronts Bill Ayers:
October 24, 2008:
(note the red communist star on his shirt)
Why not? He's an illegal, and his relatives here illegally get them.
“$150,000 doesnt buy silence.”
For me, yeah it would, but for Jeremiah, no way.
Axelrod probably yanked the briber back to DNC realizing that they didn’t need to offer Wright an Indian nickel.
The Stasi stenographers wouldn’t report anything he would say anyways. Wright also knew that anything he said would just come back home to roost.
A little off point for sure, but have you read the book? Or has anyone here? I’d love to know if it is worth a read, has any new information or whatever....
BTW, thanks for posting the article.
At the time it was reported as being in a mostly white neighborhood, in a gated community. The home is 10,340-square-foot, and has four bedrooms, among many other extras. It cost $1.6 million to build. Trinity Church paid for the home, apparently taking out the loan from Shore Bank. Another article reports that the church's agreement with the bank added an additional $10 million dollar line-of-credit, which is probably the money paid Wright for his silence. This article explains that the property has since been sold to ATG Trust, a company that specializes in tax shelters, trusts, and investment management. That was done so Wright would be protected from having to pay taxes. Here's the link to the original article with pictures:
If you read the full interview, he was threatened that things would get worse, much worse.
I didn’t take it as a threat towards Wright so much as saying that people would continue to publicize Wright’s sermons and use them against Odrama. I could be wrong, but that’s how I took it.
"Not sure that I get that one. I would suppose that there's irony in that, but then I wouldn't get that one either."
Not K-mart but Walmart. Not underwear, but socks.
He wasn’t concerned about the press going after Wright, he cared about how it reflected on him. It truly is incredible and I pray more truth is revealed every day.
