Gaddafi Was Jeremiah Wright Before Jeremiah Wright Was Cool

As the Obama administration’s response to the situation in Libya stampedes decisively toward “strongly worded letter addressed to nobody in particular” territory, Aaron Klein has written about Barack Obama’s longtime paster, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, and his connection to Muammar Gaddafi.

Wright is quoted as saying the following the year before the 2008 election: “When [Obama's] enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli to visit [Gadhafi] with Farrakhan, a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell.”

The quote originally appeared in the New York Times in 2007.

Everybody remembers Wright’s notorious “God damn America” sermon from 2003, but Gaddafi beat Wright to it by 30 years, and it isn’t difficult to see why a kinship developed.

Time Magazine, April 1973:

When a Libyan student asked Gaddafi this month why he did not throw the Americans out of Libya, the colonel replied, ‘Nothing would please me more, but who else would pump the oil that we need? God damn America.’”

Separated at birth…
