Ex-Obama pastor: ‘Obama threw me under the bus’

NEW YORK (AP) - The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama’s controversial former pastor, said in a letter obtained by The Associated Press that he is “toxic” to the Obama administration and that the president “threw me under the bus.”

In his strongest language to date about the administration’s 2-year-old rift with the Chicago pastor, Wright told a group raising money for African relief that his pleas to release frozen funds for use in earthquake-ravaged Haiti would likely be ignored.

“No one in the Obama administration will respond to me, listen to me, talk to me or read anything that I write to them. I am ‘toxic’ in terms of the Obama administration,” Wright wrote the president of Africa 6000 International earlier this year.

“I am ‘radioactive,’ Sir. When Obama threw me under the bus, he threw me under the bus literally!” he wrote. “Any advice that I offer is going to be taken as something to be avoided. Please understand that!”

Ex-Obama pastor: ‘Obama threw me under the bus’

Jeremiah Wright is very correct in his statement, Barack Hussein Obama DID throw him under the bus. I don’t have a problem with that.

I just wish that Americans had paid attention to Wright, and listened to HIS words, and had taken those words to heart as they realized this fact: Barack Obama listened to the preachings of Wright, more correctly, the anti-American rantings, of this America hating, so-called preacher, listened to them for years, and considered Wright to be his spiritual adviser, a trusted friend and a counselor.

Obama listened to Wright right up until the time that Wright became a liability to Obama’s run for the White House. Once Wright’s rants were exposed, Wright was under the bus.

The White House didn’t respond to requests for comment Monday about Wright’s remarks. Several phone messages left by the AP for Wright at the Trinity United Church of Christ, where he is listed as a pastor emeritus, were not returned. Wright’s spokeswoman, his daughter Jeri Wright, did not immediately comment on the substance of the letter.

The Obama White House has Wright on *ignore*, a lot like that crazy uncle we all love but just know that if we invite him to the reunion, he’s going to say something terribly off the wall and embarrass the entire family. “Y’all know that Uncle Jeremiah just ain’t right in the head, ignore him and humor him a bit, it’ll all be good…”

Then-Sen. Obama cut ties with Wright when his more incendiary remarks became an Internet sensation in the spring of 2008. At a National Press Club appearance in April 2008, he claimed the U.S. government could plant AIDS in the black community, praised Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and suggested Obama was putting his pastor at arm’s length for political purposes while privately agreeing with him.

Lest we all forget Wright’s famous rants:

Wright says ‘Jews’ keeping him from Obama

Wright says ‘Jews’ keeping him from Obama

HAMPTON, Virginia - President Barack Obama’s controversial former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, is blaming “them Jews” for keeping him from speaking to the president.

Wright, the former pastor of Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ, said he hasn’t spoken to Obama since he became president.

“Them Jews ain’t going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter that he’ll talk to me in five years when he’s a lame duck, or in eight years when he’s out of office,” Wright told the Daily Press of Newport News following a Tuesday night sermon at the 95th annual Hampton University Ministers’ Conference.

Wright says ‘Jews’ keeping him from Obama

Remember this, Barack Hussein Obama was mentored by this man for many years. Obama never saw a thing wrong with the words of the good Reverend until he (Obama) wanted to become POTUS. But Rev. Jeremiah Wright does speak the truth on this one thing, once Barack Hussein Obama is a *lame duck*, he’ll be right back in the flock with Rev. Jeremiah Wright as his spiritual leader.

I really don’t have a lot more to say concerning Wright and Obama other than this, they are birds of a feather, both of them are nothing more than trash, attempting to rise above their level. I will give you folks a few examples of Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s way of thinking. Any that haven’t already concluded that Wright is a racist and Obama is his student, if this doesn’t convince you, there is no hope for you.

“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. 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.�? (2003)

“The Israelis have illegally occupied Palestinian territories for over 40 years now. Divestment has now hit the table again as a strategy to wake the business community and wake up Americans concerning the injustice and the racism under which the Palestinians have lived because of Zionism.�?

“We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye.�? SOURCE

Ladies and Gentlemen, those are the rantings of a mad man, a vile racist, an anti-Semite, a hater of America, a hater of white people, a hater of Jews, a man that favors the enemies of America over the people OF America.

Did Barack Hussein Obama automatically toss out the racist, and anti-Semitic teachings of his Pastor once he became president, or is he simply keeping those teachings in his heart and acting upon them as he can, without placing his administration in danger? Do Obama’s words give him away?

• Mr. Obama referred four times in his speech to “the Holy Koran.” Non-Muslims — even pandering ones — generally don’t use that Islamic formulation.

• Mr. Obama established his firsthand knowledge of Islam (albeit without mentioning his reported upbringing in the faith) with the statement, “I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed.” Again, “revealed” is a depiction Muslims use to reflect their conviction that the Koran is the word of God, as dictated to Muhammad.

• Then the president made a statement no believing Christian — certainly not one versed, as he professes to be, in the ways of Islam — would ever make. In the context of what he euphemistically called the “situation between Israelis, Palestinians and Arabs,” Mr. Obama said he looked forward to the day “. . . when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon them) joined in prayer.”

Now, the term “peace be upon them” is invoked by Muslims as a way of blessing deceased holy men. According to Islam, that is what all three were - dead prophets. Of course, for Christians, Jesus is the living and immortal Son of God. SOURCE

Take a look at the link, read this one for yourself and make your own decisions. But I have to ask, what are the odds that a decent man would allow a person like Wright to perform his wedding and then have his kids baptized by a man like Wright, let alone sit in his pews for 20 years and not see, and absorb all of this into his own being?
