NC Sez: The man running under the banner of a Leader with good Judgment doesn’t look like he has such good judgment now! Are we really expected to believe that Obama, after 20 years of dedication to this church, his marriage officiated by Wright, and two kids baptized by Wright, never heard this racist and bigot, Jeremiah Wright rant anything anti-white, or anti-American? Come on! People! That’s so laughable my side hurts!
If a white Republican candidate ever spent 20 years in a white separatist church like this ALL of us would laugh him off the debate stage and rightly so! The fact that Liberals aren’t laughing this guy off the stage is shocking and appalling. Oh, wait, I’m sorry, the leftists think they will get away with redefining the terms here, and I plan on making sure that apples are compared with apples!
Having a racially divided church is not acceptable if it’s Aryan Nations, but voters are expected to believe somehow it is acceptable if it is Trinity United Church of Christ, which is an oxymoron itself. In both cases, the unity is not through the blood of Jesus Christ, but rather through the blood of the race.

Because Barack Obama asked for it, Jim Hoft delivers (nice album cover, Jim!):
– God Damn America
– Hillary Aint No N*gger
– Bill Treated Me Like Monica
– God Damn America (Remix)
– Racism is How this Country was Founded
– Chickens Come Home to Roost
– We’re the Same as Al-Qaeda
– We bombed Nagasaki & Didn’t bat an eye
– God’s Sick of this Sh*t!
Watch Obama lavish praise on his crazy uncle.
Otis Moss III, the current pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ, used his pulpit to defend his congregation and its past minister, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., from a wave of controversy stemming from inflammatory statements made by Wright.”We have listened and watched as the wonderful work of our church has been vilified this week,” he told about 3,000 congregants on Palm Sunday morning. “This week should be special for us because I guess we know a little something about crucifixion.”
The church also released a statement that began: “Nearly three weeks before the 40th commemorative anniversary of the murder of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Reverend Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr.’s character is being assassinated in the public sphere because he has preached a social gospel on behalf of oppressed women, children and men in America and around the globe.”
Bill Kristol distills the essence of Obama:
The more you learn about him, the more Obama seems to be a conventionally opportunistic politician, impressively smart and disciplined, who has put together a good political career and a terrific presidential campaign. But there’s not much audacity of hope there. There’s the calculation of ambition, and the construction of artifice, mixed in with a dash of deceit — all covered over with the great conceit that this campaign, and this candidate, are different.
Juan Williams agrees.
More on Obama’s reported attendance at one of Wright’s Hate America sermons from Ronald Kessler. If the report is accurate, Obama needs to be pressed on it.
If it isn’t accurate, Kessler and Newsmax need to correct and retract it.
Scott at Power Line has more:
The Los Angeles Times blog reports the Obama campaign’s denial that Obama attended the July 22 service; it states that Obama was in Miami that day. (Davis’s story was originally posted in August 2007; the Obama campaign apparently did not take notice of it until yesterday.) In fact, according to a Washington Post listing, Obama was scheduled to address the national council of La Raza’s annual conference on July 22, 2007. The time of Obama’s scheduled appearance is listed as “n/a.” Mickey Kaus has posted a La Raza press release listing Obama’s scheduled appearance at 1:30 p.m. There is also video of Obama’s appearance. As Kaus says, the ball is in Kessler’s court.
Allahpundit weighs in.
UPDATE: Wright takes a pot shot at Israel:
