Jeremiah Wright on Obama, "Them Jews Aren't Going to Let Him Talk To Me"

Hees Baaaaak ! President Obama's former religious mentor has crawled out of his sewer of hatred to speak to the Newport News Daily Press. The "preacher" who once claimed that the United States created aids to hurt the Black Man, now claims that it is the Jews that are keeping President Obama from talking to him.

Nevertheless, The reverend Wright sill considers the President like a son, and predicts that their relationship will be repaired when Obama is a lame duck president or when he is out of office:

Rev. Wright says he doesn't regret severed relationship with president


HAMPTON – - The Rev. Jeremiah Wright says he does not feel any regrets over his severed relationship with President Barack Obama, a former member of the Chicago church in which Wright was the longtime pastor.

Wright also said that he had not spoken to his former church member since Obama became president, implying that the White House won't allow Obama to talk to him. He did not indicate whether he had tried to reach Obama.

"Regret for what... that the media went back five, seven, 10 years and spent $4,000 buying 20 years worth of sermons to hear what I've been preaching for 20 years?

"Regret for preaching like I've been preaching for 50 years? Absolutely none," Wright said.

Wright said that when he went to the polls, he did not hold any grudge against Obama.

"Of course I voted for him; he's my son. I'm proud of him," Wright said. "I've got five biological kids. They all make mistakes and bad choices. I haven't stopped loving any of them.

"He made mistakes. He made bad choices. I've got kids who listen to their friends. He listened to those around him. I did not disown him."

Asked if he had spoken to the President, Wright said: "Them Jews aren't going to let him talk to me. 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 to talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is. ... I said from the beginning: He's a politician; I'm a pastor. He's got to do what politicians do."

Wright also said Obama should have sent a U.S. delegation to the World Conference on Racism held recently in Geneva, Switzerland, but that the president did not do so for fear of offending Jews and Israel.

"Ethic 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," Wright said.

Wright is in Hampton this week attending Hampton University's 95th Annual Ministers Conference. The son of a pastor, Wright said he has attended the conference since he was a child – though he was not spotted at the conference in 2008 during the heat of the debate over comments he made that many in the media branded racially divisive.

Perhaps without the Wright controversy, the issue of race might not have become a part of the 2008 Presidential campaign.

After the initial rounds of the controversy, Obama made his famous speech in Philadelphia on race relations, in which he said he could no more disown Wright than his own grandmother.

But the issue heated up after more comments by Wright at the National Press Club and from other controversial speakers at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. Obama eventually distanced himself from the church.

In his famous speech during the campaign, Obama said he "could no more disown Wright than his own grandmother."

Makes ya wonder what happened to granny.

I hope it is clear to everyone who the real racists are in this country. Obama and his pastor/mentor.

The 'granny' you referred to died the day before he was elected.
The important thing from this story is that Obama, with a pass from the media, has consistently said one thing and done another. He said that proposed laws would be posted for five days public review before being signed into law, this has not happened. He said that his presidency would be transparent, it hides behind a door darker than any door the Bush administration erected. He said that he has no interest in running GM, then he fired the CEO and decided where they would be headquartered. He said that terrorists would not be read Miranda rights, under his administration they have been. He said he would not raise taxes on 95% of the citizens, he has. He said that he would pay for new spending by cutting bloated and unnecessary government programs, he has not. It appears to me that the only thing we can depend on with Obama is that he is going to do the opposite of what he says.

Actually, I'd like to quote Rush Limbaugh, who said, today, Obama is in panic mode.

Politicians have a way of knowing "trends" ... the same way company presidents get the bad news about their products from their accountants. (This bypasses the dead media.)

When I saw Mitchell, in Israel, telling Bibi Netanyahu that "lands can be traded." My first reaction was "hey, that's not in writing!" It's a trick.

And, Obama is sweating out what Bibi will say on Sunday evening.


I bought this at Amazon. It was first published back in 1995. And, updated following 9/11.

I bought this in the audio format, because I listen to books on tape while I drive.

If you heard what I've been hearing, you'd see that this is a subject where Netanyahu has "gone on record."

To use Hillary's phrase: "It's been memorialized."

Why would he decide to capitulate to an American president who has painted himself into Jimmy Carter's corner?

Sure. Obama thought he'd get away with it. And, true, too, that Rahm Emanuel is far-left politically, having been born in America. And, raised in a Chicago home with strong ties to powerful unions. (His mom's father was a head honcho.)

And, Rahm's dad came to America in 1947. To go to medical school in Chicago. He never did like Ben Gurion. And, whatever "vision" the Emanuel's speak to, it has lots to do with being a powerful family, engaged by the Clintoons.

I've stopped getting surprised.

And, for this reason I think Bibi Netanyahu's speech on Sunday could be a "stem winder." He's already written the book.

Race was made a part of the campaign independent of Wright, by design. As soon as they finished with the first 2 states - mostly white, they needed the black votes in the South - SC - so the famous memorandum on the racism of the Clintons was distributed to the press. Wright only put him on the defense a bit, but the media helped him come back.
And indeed, no one ever quotes from the bestest speech on race ever - as he said Wright is like grandma, right before calling grandma a "typical white person"
