"The government lied," he (Reverend Wright) told his flock, "about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color. The government lied."But that IS the typical Commiecrat Mentality, Mark, in a nutshell.
Does he really believe this? If so, he's crazy, and no sane person would sit through his gibberish, certainly not for 20 years.
Or is he just saying it? In which case, he's profoundly wicked. If you understand that AIDS is spread by sexual promiscuity and drug use, you'll know that it's within your power to protect yourself from the disease. If you're told that it's just whitey's latest cunning plot to stick it to you, well, hey, it's out of your hands, nothing to do with you or your behavior.
Nonetheless, last week, Barack Obama told America: "I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community."Sadly, Mark, yes, that is *exactly* what Senator Obama means. That is most of academia means. The most disgusting falsehoods cannot be questioned, because that would be "racist". Never mind who the real racists are. And that explains why:
What is the plain meaning of that sentence? That the paranoid racist ravings of Jeremiah Wright are now part of the established cultural discourse in African American life and thus must command our respect?
A century and a half after the Civil War, two generations after the Civil Rights Act, the Rev. Wright promotes victimization theses more insane than anything promulgated at the height of slavery or the Jim Crow era. You can understand why Obama is so anxious to meet with President Ahmadinejad, a man who denies the last Holocaust even as he plans the next one. Such a summit would be easy listening after the more robust sermons of Jeremiah Wright.
