An epidemic of black preacher bigotry

First piece of advice to Jeremiah Wright: It’s probably not a good idea to accuse someone else of being “stuck on stupid” when the “stupid” they are stuck to is…you.

Second piece of advice: Funerals are supposed to be about the person being eulogized, not the self-aggrandizing eulogizer. Or maybe that’s just a racist norm I’m oppressively imposing on his diverse culture.

Disgusting:

The Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., former pastor of Barack Obama’s Trinity United Church of Christ, has kept a low profile since some of his sermons landed him in the middle of a political firestorm.

But on Saturday Wright made his first extensive public remarks since the controversy began as he paid tribute to his friend, former appellate judge R. Eugene Pincham, a congregant at Trinity since 1987.

While discussing “seven lessons the judge taught me,” Wright never mentioned church member Obama, who has rejected some of Wright’s comments, which included denunciations of America for its mistreatment of black people and claims that America’s promotion of terrorism abroad helped prompt the 9/11 attacks. But Wright did take the opportunity to bash some of the critics of his controversial statements, including Fox News personalities Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity.

And while Wright made no mention of terrorism, he did revisit the topic of America’s mistreatment of blacks, saying America’s founding fathers “planted slavery and white supremacy in the DNA of this republic,” and adding that Thomas Jefferson wrote, “ ‘God would punish America for the sin of slavery.’ I guess that makes Thomas Jefferson unpatriotic,” he said to the cheers of the congregation…Escalating into full-preaching mode, Wright thundered, “Fox News can’t understand that. [Bill] O’Reilly will never get that. Sean Hannity’s stupid fantasy will keep him forever stuck on stupid when it comes to comprehending how you can love a brother who does not believe what you believe. [Pincham’s] faith was a faith in a God who loved the whole world not just one country or one creed.”

At that point, congregants nearly drowned Wright out with a booming standing ovation.

Wright also referred to Fox News as “Fix News.”

Third item on the agenda: Meet yet another loony black preacher, Pastor Mack King Carter of New Mount Olive Church in Fort Lauderdale (big hat tip – Marked Manner). In this video of his sermon last week, the preacher’s about to pop a vein as he screeches and howls that “the thing about the Jeremiah Wright thing is White People have never repented of their transgressions:”

As you’ll note, he’s also a big fan of Nat Turner. And of shouting the n-word at the top of his lungs.

Bitter much?

Right.
