How Obama's Church Remembered 9-11

How the attacks on 9-11 were remembered at Trinity United Church of Christ–

Do you remember the hateful God-D*** AmeriKKKa sermon by Obama’s Pastor Jeremiah Wright?

After clips of Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s hatefilled sermons made their way into mainstream media earlier this year Barack Obama complained that the videos were just “cherry-picked” to make Wright appear as a anti-American racist.


This sermon was actually given by Jeremiah Wright to his congregation the week after the 9-11 attacks. The speech was played in full on the Bill Moyers show when he interviewed his friend Wright:

Obviously, the entire rant was filled with distorted anti-American hate speech.
Obama later dismissed himself from Wright’s church– but only after his pastor was outed as an anti-American racist.

Five years after the 9-11 attacks Jeremiah Wright’s church published this poem in the September 17, 2006 edition of their newsletter, The Trumpet.
Sweetness and Light dug it up and re-posted it on this year’s anniversary:

Before I start this poem,
I’d like to ask you to join me in
a moment of silence
in honour of those who died
in the World Trade Centre
and the Pentagon
last September 11th.

I would also like to ask you
a moment of silence
for all of those who have been
harassed, imprisoned, disappeared,
tortured, raped, or killed
in retaliation for those strikes,
for the victims in both
Afghanistan and the U.S.

And if I could just add one more thing…
A full day of silence
for the tens of thousands of Palestinians
who have died at the hands of
U.S.-backed Israeli forces
over decades of occupation.

Six months of silence
for the million and-a-half Iraqi people,
mostly children, who have died of
malnourishment or starvation
as a result of an 11-year U.S. embargo
against the country.

Before I begin this poem:
two months of silence
for the Blacks under Apartheid
in South Africa,
where homeland security
made them aliens
in their own country.Nine months of silence

for the dead in Hiroshima
and Nagasaki, where death rained
down and peeled back
every layer of concrete, steel, earth and skin
and the survivors went on as if alive.

A year of silence
for the millions of dead
in Vietnam–a people, not a war for
those who know a thing or two
about the scent of burning fuel,
their relatives’ bones buried in it,
their babies born of it.

A year of silence
for the dead in Cambodia and Laos,
victims of a secret war … ssssshhhhh ….
Say nothing .. we don’t want them to
learn that they are dead.

Two months of silence
for the decades of dead
in Colombia, whose names,
like the corpses they once represented,
have piled up and slipped off
our tongues.

Before I begin this poem,
An hour of silence
for El Salvador …
An afternoon of silence
for Nicaragua …
Two days of silence
for the Guatemaltecos …
None of whom ever knew
a moment of peace

45 seconds of silence
for the 45 dead
at Acteal, Chiapas
25 years of silence
for the hundred million Africans
who found their graves
far deeper in the ocean
than any building could
poke into the sky.
There will be no DNA testing
or dental records
to identify their remains.
And for those who were
strung and swung
from the heights of
sycamore trees
in the south, the north,
the east, and the west…

100 years of silence…
For the hundreds of millions of
indigenous peoples
from this half of right here,
Whose land and lives were stolen,
In postcard-perfect plots
like Pine Ridge,
Wounded Knee,
Sand Creek, Fallen Timbers,
or the Trail of Tears.

Names now reduced
to innocuous magnetic poetry
on the refrigerator
of our consciousness …
So you want a moment of silence?

There’s more.
Barack and Michelle Obama sat in this church listening to that anti-American filth for 20 years.
They only left this toxic community when they had to.

And, yet the American media wants to drill Sarah Palin and distort her Christian beliefs!
