Wright - hvorfor nå?

Hans Rustad

Pas­tor Jere­miah Wright er seg selv, later ikke som. I en kirke der folk kjen­ner ham og hans måte kan det fun­gere, men på riks­plan blir de samme utta­lel­sene ødeleg­gende. Wright stilte opp på den nasjo­nale presse­klub­ben i Wash­ing­ton og fikk spørs­mål om de kon­tro­ver­si­elle tema­ene. Han vek ikke unna, og gjen­tok ting om USA som han må vite ska­der Obama.

Far­ra­khan: Mr. Wright praised Mr. Farrakhan’s abi­lity to get 1 mil­lion people to march on the Wash­ing­ton Mall. Then, he added:

“He is one of the most impor­tant voi­ces in the 20th and 21st cen­tury; that’s what I think about him. I said, as I said on Bill Moy­ers, when Louis Far­ra­khan speaks it’s like E.F. Hutton speaks. All black Ame­rica lis­tens. Whether they agree with him or not, they listen.

Now, I am not going to put down Louis Far­ra­khan any more than Man­dela will put down Fidel Castro. You remem­ber that Ted Kop­pel show where Ted wan­ted Man­dela to put down Castro because Castro is our enemy, and he said, “You don’t tell me who my ene­mies are; you don’t tell me who my fri­ends are.”

Louis Far­ra­khan is not my enemy. He did not put me in chains, he did not put me in slavery, and he didn’t make me this color.

The 9/11 Remarks:

On the excerpt of his ser­mon after the Sept. 11 attacks when he remar­ked that the “chick­ens were coming home to roost,” Mr. Wright first chi­ded the ques­tio­ner for not having lis­te­ned to the entire sermon.

“Well, let me try to respond in a non-bombastic way.
If you heard the whole ser­mon, first of all, you heard that I was
quo­ting the ambas­sador from Iraq. That’s No. 1. But No. 2, to quote the Bible, “Be not dece­i­ved; God is not mocked, for what­so­e­ver you sow that you also shall” — (he held his hand to his ear and the audience shouted “Reap!”)

Jesus said, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” You can­not do ter­ro­rism on other people and expect it never to come back on you. Those are bibli­cal prin­cip­les, not Jere­miah Wright bom­ba­s­tic divi­sive principles.

The Remarks About America:

The govern­ment of lea­ders, those — as I said to Barack Obama, my mem­ber — I’m a pas­tor; he’s a mem­ber. I’m not a “spi­ri­tual men­tor” — hoo­doo. I’m his pas­tor. And I said to Barack
Obama last year, “If you get elected, Novem­ber the 5th I’m coming
after you, because you’ll be repre­sen­ting a govern­ment whose poli­cies grind under people.” All right? It’s about policy, not the Ame­ri­can people.

And if you saw the Bill Moy­ers show, I was tal­king about, alt­hough it got edi­ted, I was — do you know, that’s bibli­cal? God doesn’t bless eve­rything. God condemns somet­hing. And D-E-M-N, demn, is where we get the word damn. God damns some practices.

De som kjen­ner koden vet kan­skje at Wright ikke mener det helt på den ver­ste måten, at det er en jive-bibelsk måte å snakke på som svarte for­står, men ikke andre. At han gjen­tar dette midt i valg­kam­pen, er vans­ke­lig å for­stå. Det er ikke cool, det er ødeleg­gende for Obama.
