Wright: “Them Jews Aren’t Going To Let [Obama] Talk To Me”

Jeremiah_Wright_ClintonWhitehouse_cropRev. Jeremiah Wright is back with a vengeance. In an interview, Wright says that he has not spoken to President Obama since the campaign despite their prior close relationship. He blames the Jews saying
“them Jews aren’t going to let him talk to me.”

Wright added “I told my baby daughter, that he’ll talk to me in five years when he’s a lame duck, or in eight years when he’s out of office. They will not let him … talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is.”

In a Daily Press interview, he said that Jews were controlling Obama in critical areas: “Ethnic cleansing is going on in Gaza. Ethnic cleansing of the Zionist is a sin and a crime against humanity, and they don’t want Barack talking like that because that’s anti-Israel.”

On a somewhat related note, a white supremacist just shot two people at the Holocaust Museum, here. James von Brunn stated, among other hateful things, that “Obama was created by the Jews.”

  1. His statement about ethnic cleansing is right. Perhaps his slur was said in jest or anger in a fleeting moment. Even if it were a malicious statement, ethnic cleansing is occurring and should be addressed.

  2. Patty Cp,

    Given your recent screen name hijacking and the fact that you stated that you might not post as often because of the beautiful summertime in Maine; can you confirm that you are the Patty C and that you made a permanent name change?

    Thank you.

  3. Mike S.,

    I already lost count, but I haven’t spotted either one of us.


    While you’re less than completely accurate on medical protocols, in cases of fetal demise what I consider even more inhumane, and what I thought you might have suggested besides, is the ridiculous notion that women must ‘miscarry on’, and on,
    in such cases.

    But then, such are not the really tough calls nor what’s forever keeping folks upset or set up, as the case may be.

    After 35 years, there’s plenty more misconception around procedures out there still, just floating around.


  4. What is it about “Never Again” that Lieberman and Netanyahu, and a few powerful Neo Cons stateside, don’t get?

    The Likud Party, Israel’s Christian Eye4Eye equivalent, have combined in classic form…


    …and revealed an amorality that brings both gospel and white phosphorous wherever it appears. It’s the perfect symbiosis for totalitarians on the fast track.

    The best medicine is plenty of ultraviolet and repeated visits to the Museum of Tolerance. The theofascists have lost their way.


  5. “The horrible actions that occurred are the result of radical extremists in the Israeli Army and Government and are being encouraged by the equally radical religious right.”

    I totally agree with you then. See what happens when we assume things about others views? My assumptions were unfounded. I shouldn’t have compared you with Wright, since I’ve seen your view and don’t really know the nuances in his.
    However, his use of: “them Jews aren’t going to let him talk to me.” was inappropriate and bigoted

  6. Mike,

    I’ve always supported the existence of Israel and their right to defend themselves. It is importaint to note that this is not /state sponsored/ ethnic cleansing. The horrible actions that occurred are the result of radical extremists in the Israeli Army and Government and are being encouraged by the equally radical religious right.

  7. IS writes: I think we can safely say that after 6 months you are killing human life. It may be a fetus but it is still human life. By that time the potentiality is pretty much gone and statistically speaking you are going to deliver a few months later (if you are a woman).

    So I would say that Dr. Tiller is killing humans. Obviously it is not illegal, should it be I dont know I leave that up to better minds than mine.

    You cant get around the fact that he was killing human life. I couldnt do it, but then I had a hard time shooting a deer and never did it again so I guess I am just a softie.

    Should the government legislate morality-no. The only possible argument for abortion in my mind is life of the mother or rape and incest. There is a good Somerset Maughm story about a French woman raped by a NAZI that explores the psyche of a woman raped. I should think it cruel and unusal punishment to make a woman carry the child to term unless she wanted to.

    So I would say that Dr. Tiller is killing humans but it is perfectly legal to do so at this time.

    me:lets be clear on one thing: Dr Tiller is not killing anyone. He is dead having been murdered himself.
    that said, late term abortions are never performed as an afterthought for women who in their 2nd or 3rd trimester have suddenly decided that maybe they did not want to give birth after all. late term abortions are only performed when there is emergent and eminent threat to the life of the woman and when the fetus is grossly deformed.

    did you know that when fetuses die in utero, abortions are rarely performed and instead women are forced to go through induced labor to deliver a dead fetus? how humane is that?

    save the raped by nazi stories for your kids as you tuck them in a night.

  8. May I ask that this topic and discussion be closed if we are going to do name calling, Carl?

  9. carl writes: Count yourself among the clueless elitest that think they know best for humanity. You should be ashamed for defending a man who practiced a procedure that murdered babies, many if not most capable of living outside the womb, solely for money. I don’t know how you sleep at night.

    no carl, it is you who are clueless. a licensed physician in private consultation with patients performed a medical procedure that is legal and yes , he was paid for his work, just as you are for yours.
    my only comment to men who are anti-abortion is this: when you are capable of conceiving and carrying a fetus to term then and only then do you get to enter into the discussion.

    I’ve had an abortion and I sleep fine.
