Recently, Obama was forced to repudiate Black Muslim Louis (“Judaism is a gutter religion”) Farrakhan, but has refused to repudiate his pastor and leave his racist church, Trinity United Church of Christ. Inquiring minds, of all parties, want to know why he continues to support racism. Don’t you think Romney would be asked why he remained a Mormon if they still preached and practiced polygamy? Wouldn’t reporters ask Huckabee why he remained a Baptist if his church still refused to admit Blacks? Then why the soft glove treatment for Obama?
Senator Obama’s home church declares they are “unapologetically Christian” and I have no problem with that, although I question whether that is true since their web site is about race, not religion. However, my question is, “If you folk at Trinity are Christian then why have a nut case like Black Muslim Louis Farrakhan on the cover of the Trumpet Newsmagazine, the church’s publication? In an interview with Farrakhan by Roda McKiney-Jones, Pastor Wright is quoted as saying, “When Minister Farrakhan speaks, Black America listens.” True, but usually out of his mouth spews bias, bigotry, babbling, bombast, or blasphemy—and blackness ad nauseam.
As a young man, Farrakhan dropped out of college and found work in nightclubs as a calypso guitarist-singer known as “Calypso Gene,” also known by some as “Calypso Louie.” He recorded an original song, “A White Man’s Heaven is a Black Man’s Hell.” In March 2000, the Philadelphia Inquirer quoted Farrakhan saying, “White people are potential humans … they haven’t evolved yet.” Farrakhan is a white hating, America hating, and Christian hating racist promoted by Trinity United Church of Christ! Question: Senator, how can you justify remaining a member of a church with such loose convictions that promotes bigotry without blushing?
At the Nation of Islam’s Savior’s Day Celebration in 1991, Louis told the cheering crowd that he saw a huge UFO with thousands of people in it and he was taken for a ride. (I really think his followers have been “taken for a ride.”) Louis told the crowd that the “wheel” ship would one day destroy the white man and bring Blacks into power. He also assured the gullible crowd that 1500 smaller planes from the giant “wheel” follow him at all times! Did I suggest that he is a nut case? Question: “Senator, with your influence, would you encourage Calypso Louie to get the mental help he obviously needs? After all he is one of your constituents.” I suppose Obama’s national health care scheme would cover bigots!
Pastor Wright called Calypso Louie one of the “giants of the African American religious experience.” The publication gave Louie the 2007’s “Lifetime Achievement Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. Trumpeter Award” for his contributions to the “African American community.” Among others, Congresswoman Maxine Waters received an award.
In February, 1996, Louis did a five-week tour of the world’s most despotic nations. In Iran, he was reported to have said “You can quote me: God will destroy America by the hands of Muslims…. God will not give Japan or Europe the honor of bringing down the United States; this is an honor God will bestow upon Muslims.” He is not only a nut case but also a traitor to the nation that provided him the opportunity to live in regal splendor on his 77-acre country estate in addition to two posh Chicago homes! Therefore, he is also an ingrate.
Dr. Wright candidly said, “When [Obama’s] enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli… with Farrakhan, a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell.”
Pastor Wright accompanied Farrakhan on his trek to visit Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi and other Muslim middle east terrorists and Dr. Wright candidly said, “When [Obama’s] enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli…with Farrakhan, a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell.” Well, I think all Obama’s financial support should dry up quicker than that! In 1996, Louis also visited Yasser Arafat, master terrorist, Saddam Hussein, terrorist monster and other terrorist renegades. Question: Senator, will you disassociate yourself from an obvious traitor, and since the visiting party illegally sought to negotiate with foreign powers will you seek congressional hearings to inquire further into their illegal and seditious activities?” Follow-up: “If not, why not?”
When Obama kicked off his national presidential race on Feb. 10, 2007, he uninvited his pastor from giving the televised invocation because as Pastor Wright quoted Obama, “You [Wright] can get kind of rough in the sermons, so what we’ve decided is that it’s best for you not to be out there in public.” I would hate to admit that I was ashamed of being associated with my pastor.
Some fearless reporter should ask, “Senator, don’t you think you should disassociate yourself from Dr. Wright and his radical church if you can not endorse what he preaches?” Don’t expect to hear that question even from a “conservative” reporter.
(Followup: Obama has finally left Trinity United Church of Christ.)
