Obama's Gave $22,500 to Racist Church in 2006
There are mosques that preach Radical Islam.
There are churches that preach Radical Christianity.
Unfortunately, the leading Democratic nominee for president attends such a church.
Unfortunately, its really not a surprise.
Here is a collection of hate speech coming from the pulpit at Barack and Michelle Obama’s church Trinity United Church of Christ by Barack’s close friend and mentor of 20 years, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

It is not clear if the Obama’s and their children were attending any of those services.
Here are a few of those lines again from Jeremiah Wright’s more famous sermons:
“The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people… God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.”
“We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye.”
“We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost.”
As noted earlier, Jeremiah Wright is no casual aquaintance of the Obama’s.
Jeremiah Wright helps keep Obama’s “priorities straight and his moral compass calibrated.”
Sweetness and Light and The Chicago Tribune reported last year:
Obama says that rather than advising him on strategy, Wright helps keep his priorities straight and his moral compass calibrated.
“What I value most about Pastor Wright is not his day-to-day political advice,” Obama said. “He’s much more of a sounding board for me to make sure that I am speaking as truthfully about what I believe as possible and that I’m not losing myself in some of the hype and hoopla and stress that’s involved in national politics.” …
In his 1993 memoir “Dreams from My Father,” Obama recounts in vivid detail his first meeting with Wright in 1985. The pastor warned the community activist that getting involved with Trinity might turn off other black clergy because of the church’s radical reputation.
When Obama sought his own church community, he felt increasingly at home at Trinity…
Later he would base his 2004 keynote speech to the Democratic National Convention on a Wright sermon called “Audacity to Hope,” –also the inspiration for Obama’s second memoir, “The Audacity of Hope.”
Though Wright and Obama do not often talk one-on-one often, the senator does check with his pastor before making any bold political moves.
Last fall, Obama approached Wright to broach the possibility of running for president. Wright cautioned Obama not to let politics change him, but he also encouraged Obama, win or lose…
When it comes to Israel and divesting from banks and businesses that are heavily invested in Israel, until the Palestinian problem has been resolved amicably for both sides, you can throw that out of your mind! Nobody is trying to hear what we are saying in terms of divestment from Israel.
In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01. White America and the Western world came to realize that people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just “disappeared” as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring Black concerns.
One 18-year-old white girl from Alabama gets
drunk on a graduation trip to Aruba, goes off and “gives it
up” while in a foreign country and that stays in the news
for months! Maybe I am missing something!
Sweetness and Light links to another earlier racist sermon, “God Has Got To Be Sick Of This Sh*t!”
The Wall Street Journal has more on Jeremiah’s hate speech today.
Dan Riehl found an early response from Obama that raises questions.
