  • The Freedom Our Forefathers fought for must be protected.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - Ronald Reagan

Even the Left Thinks Reverend Wright Hates America

Posted by rightwinger on April 28, 2008

From Joan Walsh at Salon.com:

But “God damn America” – that’s sweeping. It sounds like it’s the idea of America, its fundamental principles, that he’s rejecting.

But the whole idea that Wright has been attacked over “soundbites,” and if Americans saw his entire sermons, in context, they’d feel differently, now seems ludicrous. The long clips Moyers played only confirm what was broadcast in the snippets (and the longer excerpts out today are even more troubling).

The long excerpt from Wright’s Sept. 16, 2001 sermon was maybe the most disturbing. He compared al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden to African slaves who led slave rebellions in the U.S. He linked the 9/11 hijackers with every decent kind of global freedom-fighter. He linked the killing of American civilians on 9/11 to Americans killing civilians from the Indians to Hiroshima to Bill Clinton’s bombing of Sudan to retaliate against al-Qaida in 1998. I deplore all of those civilian killings as well, but 9/11 was indefensible.
