Keep digging, Rev. Wright: Them Zionists

The more Jeremiah Wright opens his mouth, the more he sounds like…well, James Von Brunn. Or vice versa.

Sammy Benoit points to the new “clarification” of Rev. Wright’s “Them Jews” jibe:

Yesterday President Obama’s former religious mentor the Rev. Jeremiah Wright said “Them Jews Aren’t Going to Let Him [Obama] Talk To Me” Today he corrected himself. When Interviewed on “Make it Plain” with Mark Thompson, he said I didn’t mean ALL Jews just Zionists.

Ohhhhhhh. Well, that clears things up!

More from Political Punch:

Wright then criticized Israel, saying, “I quote Jews when I say this,” and referencing books by Jewish authors such as “Judaism Does Not Equal Israel: The Rebirth of the Jewish Prophetic” by Marc Ellis and “The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine” by Ilan Pappe.

“I’m talking about facts, historical facts,” Wright said. “I’m not talking about emotionally charged words or the fact that like Jimmy Carter’s book, that because he used the word that Jews use, ‘apartheid,’ he gets labeled anti-Semitic.”

“They can jump on that one phrase if they want to,” Wright said, “but they can’t, they can’t undo history. They can’t undo the facts of Jewish historians and Jewish theologians who write about what’s going on, who write about the enormous influence that AIPAC has on our government and on United States policy and the United Nations.”

(Wright did not identify who “they” was.)
