Rev. Jeremiah Wright speaks on the media’s tactics in a report by Livesteez:
Wright will be speaking at Northwestern University tonight, delivering a “State of the Black Union” address as part of the university’s Diversity Week program. The address, titled “Redeeming & Reclaiming our Community” is at 7 p.m. at Cahn Auditorium, 600 Emerson St., in Evanston.
The videos, which included Wright thundering “God d@mn America!”, dominated cable television for weeks. The public outrage that followed caused the president-elect to sever ties with his longtime spiritual leader.Wright told an audience of about 200 people at the Thursday forum that he was trying to convey the anger and desire for vengeance that people felt after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He said the media failed to mention that he was a proud Christian who was raised in a Christian home.
“Their intention was to use me as a weapon of mass destruction, to tear down that man’s integrity,” said Wright, former pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago.
We all knew that Barack Obama was a man of greatness, but we had no idea his integrity required an entire Weapon of Mass Destruction to be torn down. We want some of what Obama’s got, because it only takes one shot of Patron for our integrity to go flying out the window. SMH at our integrity
