  • Dang, maybe, just maybe Reverend Jeremiah Wright still hasn’t gotten over President Barack Obama spurning him when he ran for president back in 2008.

    Wednesday, Wright – who spoke at a breakfast co-hosted by the Chicago Teachers Union to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday – said that while King said, “I have a dream,” Obama says, “I have a drone.”

    Whoa! Provocative, huh?

    Wright, who was once Obama’s pastor, called for King’s “revolution of values” and a rejection of the “three-headed demon” of “racism, militarism and capitalism” — the foundations of Western society, he said.

    “Every Tuesday morning, there’s a kill list that the president decides who they’re going to kill this week,” Wright said.

    Rev. Wright was apparently in rare form as he also took aim at some of Illinois’ most revered citizens, including America’s 16th president, according to the Chicago Sin-Times.

    “Abraham Lincoln liked to tell darkie jokes,” Wright said. “He liked to hear darkie jokes and he used the N-word incessantly.”

    A sarcastic Wright even questioned how U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan landed his job — after he “ruined the school system” in Chicago as CEO of schools.

    “A good hook shot playing basketball with . . . Barack Hussein Obama,” Wright said to chuckles.

    1. MLK died while he was putting together the poor peoples movement and he openly criticized Black leaders who were scared to denounce the war in Vietnam. Kings words were how can he tell Black people in America to take a non violent course when the US was using violence in Vietnam. Obama ordered the Murder of Muammar Qaddafi, murdered a us citizen and has double the drone use of George W Bush which says a lot. It is completely safe to say MLK at any age would not approve of this administration.

    2. I can’t speak on the Chicago schools being closed but I know that the schools that were closed in the City of Detroit were not due to Obama’s administration. The mismanagement by black administrators who were inept allowed the State to come in and take over the school system.
      People are always saying what Dr. King stood for and what he would and wouldn’t like. Dr. King was 39 years old when he was assassinated. His ideals and beliefs are frozen in time. No one knows if some of his ideals and beliefs would have changed over time. Dr. King may have identified with President Obama because of the overwhelming amount of pressure both men face/faced from the black community and the world. Dr. King was 39 at the time of his death but had the heart of a 60 year old man. The movement really took a toll on his body. The president is also under a great amount of stress running the country. He has to deal with people who make it their job every day to fight him at every turn.

      A lot of the comments made about the president are no constructive criticism, but are mean and vindictive. Dr. Wright’s comments fall in the mean and vindictive category.

    3. Well did he lie? Obama has killed more people with Drones than George Bush. Chicago Obamas home closed over 30 schools in one year yet one billion dollars was given to Egypt just this year. Mr. Wright is absolutely correct about Obama the people who defend him never do so with facts they just say the other presidents did it too or your just jealous. Its time we as a people stand up and deal with reality Mr. Wright is correct MLK would be completely opposed to this administration.

    4. I’ve heard some of his sermons and the clip of the one the news media kept showing back in 2008 is tame compared to some of the things that have come out of his mouth. He’s still angry because the media made him look like a deranged man on a national level. His ego was bruised. He used the luncheon to express his anger towards President Obama. I quite sure the people at the luncheon weren’t there to listen to him try to settle an old score with the President.

    5. Pride and vanity (along with their first cousin envy) will always be the devil’s go to weapons within the church. If an appointed spiritual leader can succumb to that instead of preaching the TRUE Word, which is Jesus and Him crucified for our salvation, then the very foundation is not established and we need to flee from it. Our purpose here is to learn how to LOVE one another in the same way God loves us–and that includes respecting the differences and variations of character and design in each of us. Always loved this question asked to evaluate yourself-What kind of church would my church be if the members were just like me? Food for thought….

    6. Rev. Jeremiah Wright, instead of bashing the president why don’t you exterminate that odor coming out of your mouth every Sunday morning!

    7. What scripture was the message tailored to? I go to hear the Word of God preached. If the sermon is biblically sound, I’m good, if not I feel as though I have wasted my time. Either way, sermons aren’t news.
