Finding Reverend Wright

A giant signpost that Faux News is losing in their War on the Obama White House was on full display last night, as several Faux propagandists sought to dredge up, yet again the ghost of Reverend Jerimiah Wright with this clip -

Hannity And Fox News Still Obsessed With Rev. Jeremiah Wright

I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that Rev. Jeremiah Wright is African American but Fox News’ obsession with him has gone over the top. Even if you think the guy is a radical extremist whatever, Wright is a former Marine and Navy corpsman who attended President Johnson as a cardiopulmonary technician. And yet Wright, who has committed no crime (or you could be sure Fox News would trumpet it 24/7) other than to espouse a political philosophy Fox News finds distasteful, has been turned into the 21st Century Willie Horton – and by a bunch of self-styled patriots who who never served their country when they had the chance. With video.

“Great American” Sean Hannity sneered by way of introduction last night (11/2/09) to a meaningless video of Wright speaking of the country as being a land of greed and slavery. “(Wright) used his time at the podium to do what he does best, that’s bash the United States of America.”

As opposed to Hannity who uses his time before the cameras to bash our president, vice president, Speaker of the House, Democrats and liberals, Chicago, the media, African Americans, etc.

After the clip, Hannity said, “That’s Rev. Wright at an event hosted by a SOCIALIST (his emphasis) magazine. So I wonder how many other friends of the president are subscribers to that publication.” Not that Hannity bothered to find out. Smarmy, baseless, innuendo is, apparently, A-OK on the “fair and balanced” network.

Hannity was not the only one to focus on this non-news event. Bill O’Reilly included Wright in the “Reality Check” segment last night. “Same tune, different place. I know the Obama people hate when we show you Wright in any context because it brings back bad memories… But Wright did influence the president’s life and that still has not been fully examined.”

Sort of like that Birth Certificate “hasn’t been fully examined”?

Faux is losing. There is no sweeter sound than racist conservative whimpering.

The Minister the right wing loves to hate is at it again, with another case of hoof-in-mouth.

HAMPTON, Va. — The Rev. Jeremiah Wright says he does not feel any regrets over his severed relationship with President Barack Obama, a former member of the Chicago church in which Wright was the longtime pastor.

“Regret for what … that the media went back five, seven, 10 years and spent $4,000 buying 20 years worth of sermons to hear what I’ve been preaching for 20 years?

“Regret for preaching like I’ve been preaching for 50 years? Absolutely none,” Wright said in an interview late Tuesday.

Wright also said he hadn’t spoken to his former church member since Obama became president, implying that the White House won’t allow Obama to talk to him. He did not indicate whether he had tried to reach Obama.

Wright is in Hampton, Va., this week attending Hampton University’s 95th Annual Ministers Conference.

Wright said that when he went to the polls, he did not hold any grudge against Obama.

“Of course I voted for him; he’s my son. I’m proud of him,” Wright said. “I’ve got five biological kids. They all make mistakes and bad choices. I haven’t stopped loving any of them.
