What makes Jeremiah Wright’s hatred of whites and Jews acceptable? The fact that he was Barack Obama’s spiritual mentor for 20 years? His black skin? Whatever it is, Jeremiah Wright is a vile, despicable, hateful, disgusting human being and anyone who thinks otherwise probably isn’t much better.
These comments from Wright are the kind of thing Nazis were saying about Jews before they started murdering them in the streets.
Speaking just miles from the White House at the 100th anniversary of Washington, D.C.’s Florida Avenue Baptist Church on Sunday, Rev. Wright accused some of America‘s most prestigious academic institutions of infecting black people’s brains with “white racist DNA,” POLITICO reports.
…Wright went on to blast some of the country’s top universities for turning black people into “sheep dogs” and “biscuits” — what he calls African-Americans raised in white America. He also warned that attending the schools causes black people to get “that alien DNA all up inside their brain.”
“Take that baby him or her away from the African mother, away from the African community, away from the African experience … and put them Africans at the breasts of Yale, Harvard, University of Chicago, those trinity schools, UCLA or U.C. Berkley. Turn them into biscuits then they’ll get that alien DNA all up inside their brain and they will turn on their own people in defense of the ones who are keeping their own people under oppression,” Wright said.
He continued: “There’s white racist DNA running through the synapses of his or her brain tissue. They will kill their own kind, defend the enemies of their kind or anyone who is perceived to be the enemy of the milky white way of life.”
Keep in mind, Obama himself attended Harvard and Columbia University. It is also unclear whether Wright considers the president to be a “biscuit,“ infected with ”white racist DNA,” but he apparently never came right out and said it.
…Wright made sure not to waste an opportunity to attack the tea party and suggested that the movement was somehow against the black community.
“This is not a time to romanticize because we have the first African descended president in the White House,” he said. “You see what the tea party is trying to do. This not the time to romanticize or fantasize.”
The Daily Caller reports that Wright also quoted Frederick Douglass, who in his famous 1852 “The Meaning of July Fourth to the Negro” speech said: “ The feeling of the nation must be quickened; the conscience of the nation must be roused; the propriety of the nation must be startled; the hypocrisy of the nation must be exposed; and its crimes against God and man must be proclaimed and denounced.”
“Frederick Douglass’ words sound curiously like a controversial preacher preaching 150 years after Douglass,” he said before reading an excerpt of the speech.
First of all, let me note that Jeremiah Wright comparing himself to Frederick Douglas would be like David Duke comparing himself to MLK. Not only is he not in the ballpark, he’s not even in the same state as the ballpark.
Additionally, let me add that if the Tea Partiers were around in the time of Frederick Douglass, they’d have been his ideological allies in the fight against the left-wing Democrats who wanted him in chains. Moreover, if Douglass were alive today, he would probably be a Tea Partier and Jeremiah Wright would be ranting about “white racist DNA running through the synapses of his….brain tissue.”
Let me also add that what Wright is advocating here is nothing but tribalism. The black way of life is distinguished from the “milky white way of life” by the fact that black people are involved. This is not meaningfully any different than the primitive philosophy taught in the villages of Afghanistan. You don’t lie, steal, or kill anybody in our tribe, but the people from other tribes are fair game if you can get away with it.
That is the absolute antithesis of what Frederick Douglass stood for, of what Martin Luther King stood for, and of the ideals that this country stands for. It is, however, a great distillation of the mentality of Nazis and the KKK. The people who think this way are not decent people, they’re not Christian people, and the fact that liberals tolerate this kind of thinking shows how utterly despicable and disreputable their ideology has become.
