Obama's Pastor

This is going to be a big issue in the campaign, because when a Black preacher says controversial things, it's a big problem. Consider these awful statements by Barack Obama's Pastor, Jeremiah Wright. We'd like to thank Rush Limbaugh for compiling these quotes.
Hillary never had to worry about being pulled over in her car as a black man driving in the wrong! I am sick of Negroes who just do not get it! Hillary was not a black boy raised in a single parent home! Barack was. Barack knows what it means to be a black man living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich white people! Hillary can never know that!
See? That's totally inaccurate; Hillary Clinton knows exactly what it's like to be a black man in America because . . . well, she just does. Also there's no racism in America and anybody who claims that being a Black Male is hard in this country hates America. Let's check out another awful quote.
All hurricanes are acts of God, because God controls the heavens. I believe that New Orleans had a level of sin that was offensive to God, and they were recipients of the judgment of God for that.

The newspaper carried the story in our local area, that was not carried nationally, that there was to be a homosexual parade there on the Monday that the Katrina came. And the promise of that parade was that it would was going to reach a level of sexuality never demonstrated before in any of the other gay pride parades.

So I believe that the judgment of God is a very real thing.
See how hateful that is?

Oh wait, got these quotes mixed up - that's not Jeremiah Wright, that's John Hagee who is supporting McCain. Don't worry; Hagee doesn't hate America. He's white.

Here's the quote I was looking for.
We bombed Hiroshima! We bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye. We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians, and black South Africans, and now we are indignant (cheers) because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back into our own front yards!
Now there's some hatred. See believing that God destroyed New Orleans and killed a lot of American Citizens? That's not America Hatred. But suggesting that our foreign policy might have provoked a response from the rest of the world? Well that means you believe we deserve what happened on 9/11. And only an America hater could do that.

Or a believer in causality (which lets Limbaugh out).

But don't worry, Americans are smart enough to tell the difference between a John Hagee and a Jeremiah White. Helpfully they are color coded for our convenience.
