What Did Obama Know About Jeremiah Wright, & When Did He Know It?

Political Night Train finds it unbelievable that Sen Obama and his wife Michelle were, for more than 20 years, unaware of Jeremiah Wright’s hateful racist sermons.  There are persistent rumors of at least one video of Wright preaching hate and racism where the Obama’s are seen in attendance.  How soon before such a video makes it to YouTube?

Just What Did Obama Know About Wright’s Past Sermons?

–>In his Friday night cable mea culpas on the incendiary comments made by his spiritual adviser Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., repeatedly said, “I wasn’t in church during the time that these statement were made. I did not hear such incendiary language myself, personally. Either in conversations with him or when I was in the pew, he always preached the social gospel. … If I had heard them repeated, I would have quit. … If I thought that was the repeated tenor of the church, then I wouldn’t feel comfortable there.”

    When Obama’s church was selling videos of the racist, vulgar, blasphemy spouted from the pulpit by his close personal pastor and “spiritual advisor” how is it that Obama didn’t buy one and watch it. If a civic cat dies under the church floor the members know about it without seeing the body. The members of typical church of any denomination talk about spirited sermons. Obama and Michelle claim they never heard the talk.
    One disgusting display which constitutes child abuse by this racist was when the Rev. was shown clearly on the video making pumping motions simulating while talking about the sex President Clinton was having with Monica Lewinsky. Children no doubt were present.
    Sen. and Mrs. Obama are not Mr. and Mrs. Magoo. They knew all about these rants and choose to stay on.
    The removal of his flag pin just after 9/11 was in concert with the rant the following sunday that it was “the chickens coming home to roost” How could Obama wear an American Flag in his Anti-American church. He couldn’t. How could he put his hand on his heart for the Star Spangled Banner. He wouldn’t.
    Michelle Obama twice told the truth when stating that for the first time in her adult life she was really proud of this country.
    The Rev. told Obama he knew the Jewish vote would melt like a “snowball in hell” if they knew he and the man who said Jews had a “gutter religion” and who receive an award from the church traveled together to visit the jew hater Gadaffi. This was not spiritual but political advise that Obama claims he never got fromthe Rev.
    Quit the Church or Resign from the Senate and quit the campaign. The Rev. has retired to use as an Obama excuse. The Rev. will be back the day Obama is elected POTUS. His rants will come from the Rose Garden.

  2. Great insight into why Barack Obama won’t wear an American Flag lapel pin, or place his hand over his heart during the National Anthem. Doing so would be counter to the teachings of Jeremiah Wright.
