The God Damn Media Owes Reverend Wright an Apology
After his Friday interview with PBS journalist Bill Moyers and after the specially edited for the dual purposes of fearmongering and race baiting for political gain sound bytes were heard in their proper context the fake devil that is the Reverend Jeremiah Wright not only right but he is deserving of an apology by every lazy corporate media hack who have once again chosen that a regular paycheck earned by picking the low hanging fruit and not upsetting the plantation masters is far more desirable than such quaint antiquities as journalistic integrity. When looking at the ‘questionable’ sermons in their true context I must agree and also must say that I have heard similar sentiments espoused by some of those on the right although in slightly less bombastic terms (they dearly cling to their blood soaked rag and whimper stars and stripes forever), it’s called BLOWBACK (see Chalmers Johnson’s book of same title) and this country has a closet full of murderous skeletons when it comes to those of darker skin color.
Personally Mr. Obama hurt himself with his dispicable throwing of the Reverend under the bus today rather than to take a principled stand against American fascism, I expected better of Obama but as many have tried to convince me he really is just an empty suit. It was a cowardly and disreputable act to just tow the fascist line and condemn Wright rather than to address the sins of the empire. You see what happened to Ron Paul when he brought it up too, there is nothing in Murka that is more dangerous than the truth but it is as kryptonite to the John Wayne Ubermensch that is the ultimate superhero for the television addled dopes and woefully ignorant suckers in this land of sorrowful decline where fantasy long ago replaced reality. I would strongly recommend all progressives, patriots and otherwise concerned Americans to circulate Reverend Wright’s sermons in their proper context and to compare them to dangerous anti-American Zionist tools like the lunatic Pastor John Hagee whose religious doctrine could have been written by the Likud Party.
Let’s see what the dreaded anti-American black devil said in unedited transcripts (from the Bill Moyers program) of those sermons that have been pimped so hard by the Establishment media to take down Barack Obama through the very McCarthyist tactic of guild by association:
From the “God Damn America” sermon:
Where governments lie, God does not lie. Where governments change, God does not change. And I’m through now. But let me leave you with one more thing. Governments fail. The government in this text comprised of Caesar, Cornelius, Pontius Pilate – the Roman government failed. The British government used to rule from East to West. The British government had a Union Jack. She colonized Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad and Hong Kong. Her navies ruled the seven seas all the way down to the tip of Argentina in the Falklands, but the British government failed. The Russian government failed. The Japanese government failed. The German government failed. And the United States of America government, when it came to treating her citizens of Indian descent fairly, she failed. She put them on reservations. When it came to treating her citizens of Japanese descent fairly, she failed. She put them in internment prison camps. When it came to treating citizens of African descent fairly, America failed. She put them in chains. The government put them on slave quarters, put them on auction blocks, put them in cotton fields, put them in inferior schools, put them in substandard housing, put them in scientific experiments, put them in the lowest paying jobs, put them outside the equal protection of the law, kept them out of their racist bastions of higher education and locked them into position of hopelessness and helplessness. 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. Not God bless America; God damn America! That’s in the Bible, for killing innocent people. God damn America for treating her citizen as less than human. God damn America as long as she keeps trying to act like she is God and she is supreme!
From the ‘Blame America for 9/11’ Sermon
The people of faith have moved from the hatred of armed enemies, these soldiers who captured the king, those soldiers who slaughtered his son and put his eyes out, the soldiers who sacked the city, burned the towns, burned the temples, burned the towers, and moved from the hatred for armed enemies to the hatred of unarmed innocents, the babies, the babies . “Blessed are they who dash your baby’s brains against a rock.” And that my beloved is a dangerous place to be. Yet, that is where the people of faith are in 551 BC and that is where far too many people of faith are in 2001 AD. We have moved from the hatred of armed enemies to the hatred of unarmed innocents. We want revenge. We want paybacks and we don’t care who gets hurt in the process.
I heard Ambassador Peck on an interview yesterday. Did anybody else see him or hear him? He was on Fox news. This is a white man and he was upsetting the Fox news commentators to no end. He pointed out. You see him John? A white man he pointed out -an Ambassador! He pointed out that what Malcolm X said when he got silenced by Elijah Mohammad was in fact true. America’s chickens are coming home to roost! We took this country by terror away from the Sioux, the Apache, the Arawak, the Comanche, the Arapaho, the Navajo. Terrorism! We took Africans from their country to build our way of ease and kept them enslaved and living in fear. Terrorism! We bombed Grenada and killed innocent civilians, babies, non-military personnel. We bombed the black civilian community of Panama with stealth bombers and killed unarmed teenagers and toddlers, pregnant mothers and hard-working fathers. We bombed Gadafi’s home and killed his child. “Blessed are they who bash your children’s head against a rock!” We bombed Iraq. We killed unarmed civilians trying to make a living. We bombed a plant in Sudan to payback for the attack on our embassy. Killed hundreds of hard-working people; mothers and fathers who left home to go that day, not knowing that they would never get back home. 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! Kids playing in the playground, mothers picking up children after school, civilians – not soldiers – people just trying to make it day by day. We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and Black South Africans, and now we are indignant? Because the stuff we have done overseas has now been brought back into our own front yards! America’s chickens are coming home to roost! Violence begets violence. Hatred begets hatred and terrorism begets terrorism. A White Ambassador said that y’all not a Black Militant. Not a Reverend who preaches about racism. An Ambassador whose eyes are wide open, and who’s trying to get us to wake up and move away from this dangerous precipice upon which we are now poised–
This is called blowback and our continued willful ignorance of the consequences of a misguided foreign policy based solely on imperialism and the installation of brutal dictators that are U.S. puppets and who torture and repress their own people under despotic regimes blessed by Washington and Wall Street will only continue to produce more hate and retaliation until such misguided policies are halted. The cowardly smear campaign being conducted by the pocket media and political operatives of both the Clintons and the fascist Republican party is an affront to American ideals, an assault on freedom of speech and association, an attack on the black churches and those who are actively complicit in this electronic assassination have blood on their hands for their role in failing to honestly examine our failed policies.
We can just blame the inevitable next terrorist attack (given our monstrous destruction and murder in the Middle East which is creating terrorists by the hour) on Reverend Wright can’t we? That would be the easiest thing to do and once again provide cover for the lemmings snuggled warmly inside their cocoons of denial.
