Reverend Wright:"Them Jews!!!"

Well, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright is at it again.

In an interview with the Virginia Daily Press, Wright expresses his frustration at not being able to talk with his former congregant, President Barack Obama.

In the spirit of tolerance for which Reverend Wright is so famous said, "Them Jews aren't going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter, that he'll talk to me in five years when he's a lame duck, or in eight years when he's out of office."

Wright didn't identify the Jews in question. But one would think at the very least he was referring to David Axelrod, the chief strategist of the Obama presidential campaign and now Obama's senior adviser.

I guess he blames Axelrod (and possibly others) for preventing Obama from attending the World Conference on Racism (a.k.a. Durban II) in Geneva last April. "Ethic cleansing is going on in Gaza. Ethnic cleansing of the Zionist is a sin and a crime against humanity, and they don't want Barack talking like that because that's anti-Israel," said Wright.

If the White House doesn't want Obama "talking like that" then how does he explain the President's stance on Israeli settlements? Does Wright think Obama traveled to Cairo without Axelrod's knowledge? For Reverend Wright, all roads lead to hatred and hatred does not intersect with reasoned thinking.

But none of this will harm President Obama. Remember Wright is not the man he knew. I'm sure Reverend Wright never uttered an unkind word about Israel when Obama was in church. I'm equally sure Reverend Wright only discovered his anti-Semitism once the Anointed One was at least 100 feet away from Trinity United Church one fateful Sunday morning. If only Obama could have been there to set him straight.
