Right Wrong, Wright Right

Good stuff from Dennis Perrin on the MSMís current fan-fluttering and attacks of the vapors over Obamaís pastorís ventures into truth-telling.

In the real world, out where the flag-lapel crowd and the yellow ribbon boys never venture, 9/11 was indeed, as Reverend Jeremiah Wright said, the result of stupid and provocative actions taken by the United States in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and Israel.

This is not to excuse the 9/11 attacks. They were evil, murderous and unforgivable. But so had been our own actions in the Middle East and Afghanistan, over many years and many presidents. There are no good guys in this alley fight. This is essentially what Reverend Wright said, and he was right. Get over it, people.

And go read Perrinís piece on the Reverend, from whence cometh this:

I've been pretty hard on the Obama campaign, and still am; but if anything would soften my view, it's this bullshit furor over Jeremiah Wright. If you are white and don't listen to black talk radio, now would be a good time to start.

Wright's opinions are not deemed crazy there, and you'll hear much stronger denunciations of imperialism and racism than you ever will on a white liberal's show. Sure, some dementia is present: this is America, after all.

But contrast the opinions exchanged between African-Americans to those expressed on the corporate kabuki programs, or worse, white reactionary broadcasts. Which do you think is closer to what's actually going on?

And speaking of white reactionary programs, hereís Rush Limbaugh, who is apparently back on his meds:

Later in the day, Rush Limbaugh dwelled on Mr. Wright in his radio program, calling him ďa race-baiter and a hatemonger.Ē

And none of these outraged critics seems to have ever read the jeremiads of the original Jeremiah, or any of the other Old Testament prophets. The Prophets' commentaries on the societies they lived in make anything Rev. Wright said pale by comparison.

And for pity sakes, liberation theology is close to half a century old now. John Paul II made his chops as a new pope by silencing all those rabble-rousing Latin American clergy denouncing the powers that be, and that's been a very long time ago by now.

Has no one in the MSM read the Old Testament (or at least heard a sermon on, say, Isaiah or Amos) or heard of liberation theology?

Ass Limbo's irony is never lost on me! What an asshole this man continues to be. How come Ass Limbo doesn't explain to his listeners why he had viagra on him and was heading for South America? Huh? Was he going to sleep with 13 year old prostitutes? I bet he was! Asshole. And what about the lies about his drug use? Hell, the guy still sniffs on the air which tells me he is still snorting oxycontin!

Gawd I despise this man with every ounce of my being.
