In 2008, there were many people on the right (or center-right) who endorsed Barack Obama — Christopher Buckley, Colin Powell, Scott McClellan, William Weld, etc — and you just know that a good portion of them did so because they thought Obama’s election would help shut up crazies like the Reverend Wright.
They were, of course, wrong:
During a five-day seminar Wright taught last week at the University of Chicago, he was back at it, claiming that whites and Jews are controlling the flow of worldwide information and oppressing blacks in Israel and America.
â€œWhite folk done took this country,â€ Wright said. â€œYouâ€™re in their home, and theyâ€™re gonna let you know it.â€
White folk must have done took Wright’s sanity decades ago.
After his speech, Wright went back to his million-dollar home, called his former parishioner, the African-American president of the United States, and openly bashed white people and Jews for oppressing them so much.
It’s great hearing a lecture about how oppressive “white folks” are coming from somebody who sports a far more opulent lifestyle than most “white folks” could ever dream of.
