Speaking before an audience that included Marion Barry, Cornel West, Malik Zulu Shabazz of the New Black Panther Party and Nation of Islam official Jamil Muhammad, Wright praised Louis Farrakhan, defended the view that Zionism is racism, accused the United States of terrorism, repeated his view that the government created the AIDS virus to cause the genocide of racial minorities, stood by other past remarks (“God damn America”) and held himself out as a spokesman for the black church in America.
(Via Insty.) You’re still all missing the point. Yesterday Rev. Wright received a standing ovation for essentially the same speech. Not from some fringe group, but from the NAACP.
This is mainstream thinking among the black elite in this country, it seems, and certainly in the black churches — and Obama Barack, at best, believes he can at best inch away from it in order to corral votes from the rest of us.
And I told you this months ago, before the story was Rev. Wright himself.
And only now are those chickens, if you will, coming home to roost.
