Dangerous Liasons

Remember this guy? The Rev. Jeremiah Wright? President Obama's pastor. His "spiritual advisor". Rev. Wright married Obama and his wife Michelle, baptized their two daughters and is credited by Obama for the title of his book, "The Audacity of Hope." This man was Obama's pastor for the last 20 years at the Trinity United Church of Christ on Chicago's south side, and has a long history of what is mildly referred to by the Obama Administration as "inflammatory rhetoric," including the assertion that the United States brought on the 9/11 attacks with its own "terrorism."
Here is a nice quote from an ABC News article about the Reverend;
"The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No, no, no, God damn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people," he said in a 2003 sermon. "God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme."
What a peach. I am so glad to know our President saw fit to have associations such as this in his life. This is a guy with a message! Unfortunately for America, it is a message of hate, racism and disharmony. This is a guy who hates America, hates white people and uses profanity in church. This is a showman who would put P.T. Barnum to shame, who realizes that his message is repugnant to the majority of Americans, so the only recourse is to shout it louder.
I don't have any information about his recent actions, I just wanted to write an article to remind everyone that this is who our President was chummy with. This is one of his role models. This is someone he CHOSE to associate himself with.
I just don't want anyone to forget that.
