Wright Warns Obama to be Himself

By now everyone has heard the comments from Obama's (former) Reverend, Jeremiah Wright blaming the Jews for his own isolation from his student (Obama) whom he married and who's children he baptised. So far, most of the reporting on this story is merely focused upon Wright and his blatant anti-Semitic ranting and antiJewism. The comments were played out in the context of his ridiculous accusations against the "Zionist's" and make believe ethnic cleansing of Gaza, an area ruled by Hamas and from where Israel withdrew in 2005.

What has not received as much attention is what is running between the lines of the Wright rant.

The reporter, David Squires of the http://www.dailypress.com/news/dp-local_wright_0610jun10,0,7603283.story  (Daily Press) speaking to Wright after the 95th annual Hampton University Ministers' Conference asked Wright what he would tell Obama, if his access were not cut off. Wright said he would tell him what he has told him all along (paraphrasing) that Obama should not let politics change who he is as a person. He counseled Obama to not let "policies and the people around him" change what he believes with the core and "fiber of your being". Wright concluded that if Obama compromised his beliefs he would turn into a puppet of a political machine and would no longer be himself. Incidentally, when Wright made his 'Jews around him' comment, Squires, the reporter, snickered. Whether that was an approving snicker or an embarrassed one is a question for Squires. Interestingly, the audio found at the Daily Press (Squire's newspaper) website cuts out the snicker. But the audio at  http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2009/06/10/rev_wright_them_jews_wont_let_obama_talk_to_me.html"  (Real Clear Politics)does not cut out the snicker. David any comment?

When all of this is taken in context, Wright, arguably someone who knows B. Hussein Obama better than most, is describing him as a comrade who is in danger of losing touch. The question which should be asked is, what is Wright worried that Obama will forget? Dare we pose the question?

Today, no one doubts that Wright believes in layer upon layer of Jewish conspiracy theories of Jews running the government, controlling the Presidency, Zionists ethnically cleansing arabians from Gaza and all and all making life difficult for honest folk like himself. But what does he expect Obama to say? More importantly, what does Wright mean when he talks about Obama forgetting what he believes?

The hardest pill to swallow is when a close, personal, confident and protege, someone you placed great faith and, well, hope in, turns his back on you - shuns you. Wright is clearly bitter in a personal way. But he also expresses anxiety that his cause has been denied one of it's budding stars; at least for the time being. After all, Wright believes Obama will come back to the fold when he is a lame duck.

What beliefs, theories and conspiracies does/did Obama buy into during the height of his activity at Trinity? The vast overwhelming body of evidence would be convincing to anyone when not obscured by a political campaign and the mark of Democrat next to his name on the ballot intervening between common sense and hysteria. As APRPEH aprpeh.blogspot.com pointed out in the past, one must work very hard indeed to assemble as many antiJews as friends, advisers and colleagues as Obama assembled over the previous decades. That so many Jews not just fail, but refuse to look objectively at this fact is a sure sign of the weariness of exile, a luxury not afforded to Bibi Netanyahu and Israel who are beginning to understand with whom they now must deal.

Like Rahm Emanuel?

You mean like Rahm Emanuel? and David Axelrod? and Peter Orszag? and Larry Summers?

Why did Jews vote for Obama 78%/21%? Could it possibly be that they understand that a radical change in our foreign policy is good for America and is also good for Israel?

Occams Razor: Jews==Rahm Emanuel.

Who helped serve (as a civilian) in the IDF (as a mechanic).

Rev. Wright is a nutcase, but he's a genuine person... and a real cutout cardboard character.

I agree

Wright is a nutcase.  That said, why would anyone spend 20 years in a man's church and HAVE THEIR CHILDREN BAPTIZED BY HIM if they didn't agree with him at least half the time?!?

There are plenty of other black churches in Chicago if you're really just a politician looking for street cred.

listen to some of his speeches, for real, the whole thing

he doesn't sound any different than any Southern Baptist preacher from down South.

Yeah, sure, they pulled some stuff out of context -- but Rev. Wright is a good dude, who does good works. He does a prison ministry, does evangelical work, believes in accepting homosexuals into the church, did a lot with South Africa...

he's the real deal, on activist ministers (note: not liberal ministers. conservatives can be JUST as activist!)

And that's why Obama got involved -- because he felt the sermons and the congregation were uplifting to his soul.
