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.
