Guess who's back:

god damn america

If you guessed Jeremiah (God Damn America) Wright you would be correct.

The Hillary Clinton campaign nearly derailed Obama’s nomination by
digging up Wright’s incendiary and controversial sermons at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago (TUCC),
including exhortations like, “God
damn
America!” and saying
that 9/11 was nothing more than America’s chickens coming home to roost —
among many other statements. Obama later proclaimed ignorance of
Wright’s rants despite his long association with TUCC, and eventually
renounced Wright and TUCC entirely when Wright wouldn’t keep his mouth
shut.


When sermons of Obama’s Chicago pastor, Jeremiah Wright, surfaced
during the Iowa primaries, it threatened to derail Obama’s campaign.
ABC aired one where Wright screamed, “Goddamn America!” Edward Klein
interviewed Wright, who told him Obama’s team tried to buy his silence.

‘Man, the media ate me alive,” Wright told me when we met in his
office at Chicago’s Kwame Nkrumah Academy. “After the media went
ballistic on me, I received an e-mail offering me money not to preach at all until the November presidential election.”




QUIET, PLEASE: President Obama’s onetime pastor Jeremiah Wright says he was offered money not to preach.

QUIET, PLEASE: President Obama’s onetime pastor Jeremiah Wright says he was offered money not to preach.









“Who sent the e-mail?” I asked Wright.

“It was from one of Barack’s closest friends.”

“He offered you money?”

“Not directly,” Wright said. “He sent the offer to one of the members of the church, who sent it to me.”

“How much money did he offer you?”

“One hundred and fifty thousand dollars,” Wright said.

“Did Obama himself ever make an effort to see you?”

“Yes,”
Wright said. “Barack said he wanted to meet me in secret, in a secure
place. And I said, ‘You’re used to coming to my home, you’ve been here
countless times, so what’s wrong with coming to my home?’ So we met in
the living room of the parsonage of Trinity United Church of Christ, at
South Pleasant Avenue right off 95th Street, just Barack and me. I don’t
know if he had a wire on him. His security was outside somewhere.

“And
one of the first things Barack said was, ‘I really wish you wouldn’t do
any more public speaking until after the November election.’ He knew I
had some speaking engagements lined up, and he said, ‘I wish you
wouldn’t speak. It’s gonna hurt the campaign if you do that.’

“And
what did you say?” I asked. “I said, ‘I don’t see it that way. And
anyway, how am I supposed to support my family?’ And he said, ‘Well, I
wish you wouldn’t speak in public. The press is gonna eat you alive.’

    Are you saying the story is inaccurate? If that's the case then Wright will sue them. But we do know he said "God damn, America" and then he got very quiet. I wonder why. LOL

    He saved several companies and thousands of jobs. Tax extensions are common; I took one because some payments to me were late. The guy is the perfect guy to try to clean-up the Obamamess. It's the economy, stupid.

    You are familiar only with simple taxes. Complex takes take more time. That's why they have extensions. Get over it.

    Tricky dude. If they did, they wasted their money. They should have just bought him a ticket to some third world country where he could be Idiot for Life. Some place Obama could come to worship him and not remember he had been there and listned.

    Your right I am easy. However, do you also believe in the tooth fairy. Obama and his croneys may get re-elected and Wright can become Minister in Chief, Czar of religion in America. The he won't have to shut up, he will become policy.
  • Wilde~M... Old Poet 2012/05/16 00:34:38

    Try making sense.
    Wright has nothing to do with anything. The idiot making these claims is the same moron who said Hilliary Clinton is a lesbian who was raped by Bill.. give me a break. You should at least pretend you're smarter then that.. Like I said before, even the people on Fox said this guy has no creditability
