Just like Barack Obama’s racist sounding Supreme Court pick, Solomayor, Obama’s pastor for twenty years, Reverend Wight, is not a racist or an anti-Semite, he just says racist and ant-Semitic things. (Think like a liberal and this will work for ya.)
Here is his latest sample from when Rev. Wright was asked by a reporter if he spoke to Obama recently:
“Them Jews ain't going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter that he'll talk to me in five years from now, when he's a lame duck, or eight years, when he's out of office.”
Now I admit the words “them Jews’ factored into this comment by Obama’s pastor. I won’t try to spin that.
Let me make up a semi-plausible excuse for the good reverend.
Rev. Wright was responding to a reporter about whether he had spoken to his long time parishioner recently and the unfortunate reply with anti-Semitic type words included popped out.
If you look at the question though, it was specific - had he spoken to Barack Obama “recently.”
The only way to speak to the President is through his Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, who is Jewish.
So there you go. Reverend Wright was only talking about ONE Jew in particular. He probably thought that since Emanuel was Jewish he would surround himself with other Jews so Wright’s description was therefore, dead on.
Emanuel and Wright know each other as well as Obama so there is no harm.
Heck, Wright, Obama, and Emanuel know everyone in Chicago. They all came up through the ranks with each other, Chicago-style, along with Tony Rezko and Blogojevich.
What’s the harm in a couple old liberal pals joshing each other now and then? They all do it.
