Rev Jeremiah Wright in Baltimore’s Empowerment Temple: Hates Israel, Hates American Revolution

Baltimore Sun writer, Marta H. Mossburg says Jeremiah Wright brought his “anti-American crusade” to Baltimore’s Empowerment Temple, and the crowds were huge – really huge. His message “resonated” because economically, things aren’t so good in the Time of Obama, in Baltimore these days. According to Mossburg, Wright hates Israel, wants African history taught, rather than the American Revolution. He wants Black children to attend African history classes after school. I have to ask, what’s stopping them? Can he get the backing of Black parents?

Barack Obama and Jeremiah Wright

Baltimore Sun:

“Barack Obama was selected before he was elected,” said Mr. Wright, dressed in black pants and a short-sleeved, African-style printed tunic. “Wall Street selected him. GM, Ford and Chrysler selected him. When you are selected by them, you are beholden to them.”

Referencing the Book of Exodus, he warned churchgoers to “Please remember that Pharaoh was black, so not all of your oppressors are white.” A chorus of “amen” and a phalanx of arms rose simultaneously into the air in agreement with Mr. Wright.

And he said faith was not a path to riches, repeatedly poking the expensively dressed Empowerment Temple Pastor Jamal Bryant for driving a Range Rover. “Every word that is in the Bible was written under six different types of [government] oppression,” he said.

Mossburg quotes Wright saying Israel “is an illegal, genocidal place.” Obama’s former pastor, preaching Israel-hate the whole time the Obama family worshipped at Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC) (if they did), is nothing new.

Wright printed a Hamas manifesto, written by CAIR founder, Mousa Abu Marzook – in his Sunday bulletin, on the Pastor’s Page. He renamed the manifesto from Hamas Stand to “A Fresh View.”

Marzook has several aliases: Marqouq, Marzouq, Marzouk. His terrorism involvement and connections led to his forced eviction from the United States, where he received his education.

Jeremiah Wright is a Black Liberation Theology hate-monger, and he supports terrorism. Don’t you think it ironic: while Wright verbally “poked” Bryant, he didn’t remind the Temple members that he lives in a beautiful and expensive home in a gated community, on a golf course.

  • “Don’t you think it ironic: while Wright verbally “poked” Bryant, he didn’t remind the Temple members that he lives in a beautiful and expensive home in a gated community, on a golf course.”

    Of course, the self-appointed elite never think they should have to live under the same rules the commoners.

    • Justin, he certainly is “self-appointed elite.” I love to see successful pastors, but not pastors who are simply after social and economic justice to keep his congregation yelling Amen and coming back every week. Thanks for coming by and commenting.

  • I wish we had access to Obama’s e-mails (ala Palin). I wouldn’t be surprised if Obama and Wright are still communicating. The MSM did absolutely no vetting of candidate Obama. Sad, sad, sad.

    • Jim, when I look back at my 2007-2008 posts, I am floored by the amount of information that was available about Wright and the Obama family.

      TUCC is a huge church. I find it really strange that there isn’t a single story out there about the Obama’s sitting next to someone in the pew, or the Wednesday night potluck, or the church annual picnic. Out of all those member, someone would be dying to talk.

      I think they seldom darkened the door of the church, and he and Wright had a close public relations friendship. Wright could claim a U.S. senator in his church, and Obama could say he was Christian.

  • What does his address have to do with anything that he talked about at Empowerment Temple? And, please explain to me where the HATE is in any of the selected statements that you chose to highlight.

    • Charles, I mentioned Empowerment Temple because that’s where he spoke. What? You don’t want that info out? I’d be embarrassed too.

      I didn’t repeat the hate Wright has been spewing all those years. We all know it though. G-D America, on and on and on. You don’t think printing the Hamas manifesto is hateful?

      • I’m referring to you focusing on a couple of minutes out of a hour long program. That info (about his house) is public knowledge. Whats so embarrassing about pouring your life into a ministry for 36 years and being able to retire and live where you want.

        How can you fix your lips to say what Rev. Wright had been “spewing all those years” when you first heard of himwas probably during the 08′ election? Speaking on the “G-D America” quote…Have you heard the entire sermon? Do you think God is pleased with war? Do you think God is pleased with the way we treat the poor, whom Jesus called “the least of these?” To damn something is to condemn it. He didn’t just say G-D America, he said GD America for her actions. If your child came home with staight F’s what would you do? Would love that child any less? Would you get on his/her case because of their actions?

        • Charles, it’s very easy for me. I probably know a lot more about what Wright preaches than you do, unless you were a member of TUCC. I’ve read everything I can get my hands that he has said, before “stuff” was taken off their website. I watched every video, before they were taken off the website.

          Yes, I heard the entire sermon. I believe God knows we are the most benevolent people (in America) on the face of the earth. We have done everything to keep people the world over from starving. We give to the world, and it’s time the many lazy Americans get off their duff and figure out how to take care of their families.

          If you don’t think damning America, as you say “for her actions,” is out of line (unless you study BLT) then shame on you.

          I no longer feel sorry for people who send their children to our plethora of disgustingly bad public schools. Thousands, millions rather, like me have tried to empower parents and give them school choice. You know, many of you don’t want that empowerment. You just want someone to blame.

          If my child came home with F’s and I knew he/she was capable of more, I would make sure I gave him/her every opportunity to work to capacity. If that means getting him/her out of a certain neighborhood, then I’d do it come hell or high water. If it means moving schools, I’d do it and dare someone to stop me. What do you think about the Mother who used her parents address so that her two children could go to a better school? She went to jail. Where were you when she and others like her needed your support – not your victimhood.

          I applaud Wright’s right to live well and where he wants to live. I don’t support him calling on the damning of America – the very country that gave him the opportunity to be so successful. And last, but certainly not least – HE GAVE HAMAS A FORUM IN HIS “Church.”

          Wright is so taken with his own performance, he doesn’t accomplish anything other than stirring up people’s guts. Oh well, you’ll tell me he brought people to Christ?
