Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Barack and Michelle Obama’s former pastor at Trinity United Church of Christ, says that he has not spoken with President Obama since he took office:
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.”
If there’s any doubt that Barack and Michelle Obama attended a racist church for 20 years, this should banish those thoughts:
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.
Reverend Wright’s former pastorate at TUCC preached James Cone’s Black Liberation Theology, which supports Hamas. If Barack Obama actually attended Trinity to worship, and supported the church with his tithes, his time and his personal talents, his membership confirms how many of us see his commitment to Israel – which is no true commitment.
