It was only last week that Glenn Beck played Obama quoting one of Wright’s “services” where he said,
“It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks’ greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere … That’s the world! On which hope sits.”
And so it went, a meditation on a fallen world. While the boys next to me doodled on their church bulletin, Reverend Wright spoke of Sharpesville and Hiroshima, the callousness of policy makers in the White House and in the State House.
The inconsistency was actually picked up by bloggers long before the election, but it took 18 Months of Obama being the worst president in history for the connections to be broadcast on a high volume source.
Obama contended in the election that he had never heard Wright’s controversial remarks, if he had he would have brought it up with Wright and disagreed. Well according to his book, “Dreams of my Father” he believed so much in Wright’s comments he included them in his book further comments that he wept after the “services”.
The main point voters should take away from this new connection is that Obama did indeed know of Wright’s radical sermons and he fully endorsed them. He separated himself from wright only after weeks of pressure and even then said that he didn’t know or hear any radical sermons while he attended the church.
