Patterico's Pontifications


A Video of All the Sermons Barack Obama Never Ever Saw

Filed under: 2008 Election,General — Patterico @ 10:07 am

Here’s Barack Obama denouncing Rev. Wright for those very few snippets of sermonizing that Obama never personally heard and was surprised to learn about:

And, courtesy of Hot Air, here is a highlight reel of Rev. Wright. Allahpundit says: “[M]y favorite part is his Truther version of Pearl Harbor. Some of it’s leftist boilerplate (fighting for peace is like raping for virginity, blabbity blah) but other parts, like the full-bore moral equivalence between the U.S. and Al Qaeda … actually, I guess that’s pretty much leftist boilerplate too.”

Allahpundit wryly observes:

This must be the sort of thing Obama had in mind when he described the sermons as “kind of rough.” Or rather, that he would have had in mind had he ever heard Wright say anything like this. Which, of course, he never, ever did.

Of course not!

UPDATE: Video and transcript of Obama’s interview with Major Garrett of FOX News here.

  1. I guess we still have to fight for this hater’s freedom of speech. sigh

  2. Hillary and Bill Clinton have made a significant issue about how the press is treating Hillary unfairly in their hyper-critical reporting on her and their “softball” reporting on Barack Obama. Hillary maintains she has been fully investigated by the media and Barak hasn’t!

    As the Tony Rezko trial begins in Chicago, Clinton and her surrogates are linking Obama to Rezko and the media is speculating about whether Obama will be called to testify as a witness in the case. Obama has always admitted he received $85,000 in contributions from Rezko which Obama has now donated to charity rather than keep.

    Yet the civil fraud trial of Bill Clinton for defrauduing Hillary’s largest donor in 2000 into giving her campaign more than $1.2 million, pending in Los Angeles courts since 2003, is now preparing for a November, 2008 trial. The discovery that is now proceeding after a February 21 hearing, and the pending trial, have NEVER been announced by the mainstream media.

    Hillary was able to extricate herself as a co-defendant in the case in January, 2008 after years of appeals to be protected by the First Amendment from tort claims arising out of federal campaign solicitations she made. Her abuse of the intent of California’s anti-SLAPP law after the California Supreme Court refused to dismiss her from the case in 2004 is emblematic of her contempt for the Rule of Law.

    Hillary will be called as a witness in both discovery and the trial according to the trial court Judge who so-advised Hillary’s attorney David Kendall when he dismissed Hillary as a co-defendant in 2007. A subpoena is being prepared this month and will be served personally on Hillary, along with Chelsea, Pa Gov. Ed Rendell, Al Gore and other well known political and media figures.

    Yet the media has refused to report about this landmark civil fraud case- brought by Hillary’s biggest 2000 donor to her Senate race, regarding allegations that were corroborated by the Department of Justice in the criminal trial of Hillary’s finance director David Rosen in May, 2005. That indictment and trial was credited as resulting from the civil suit’s allegations by Peter Paul, the Hollywood dot com millionaire Bill Clinton convinced to donate more than $1.2 million (according to the DOJ prosecutors and the FBI) to Hillary’s Senate campaign as part of a post White House business deal with Bill.

    The media – except for World Net Daily- has also suspiciously refused to report on Hillary’s last FEC report regarding her 2000 Senate campaign, filed in January 30, 2006. In a secret settlement of an FEC complaint by the plaintiff in Paul v Clinton, Peter Paul, the FEC fined Hillary’s campaign $35,000 for hiding more than $720,000 in donations from Paul, and it required Hillary’s campaign to file a 4th amended FEC report.

    In that report Hillary and her campaign again hid Paul’s $1.2 million contribution to her campaign and falsely attributed $250,000 as being donated by Paul’s partner, Spider Man creator Stan Lee, who swore in a video taped deposition he never gave Hillary or her campaign any money.

    Lee did testify to trading $100,000 checks with Paul to make it appear he gave $100,000 to Hillary’s campaign (admission of a felony) but none of that has been reported by the “overly critical” media!

    Where is the outrage from Obama that the press is engaging in a double standard relating to his possible role in the Rezko trial and his refunding the $85,000 contributed to his campaign by Rezko- which Obama has always admitted taking. The media makes no mention of Hillary’s role as a witness in Bill’s fraud trial for defrauding Hillary’s largest donor- and Hillary’s refusal to refund the $1.2 million she illegally received from Paul, which she has denied taking from Paul ever since the Washington Post asked her about Paul and his felony convictions from the 1970’s before her first Senate election in 2000?

    Let the truth be told, see the video of Hillary commiting crimes at

    And to those that like to get brainwashed by the media, like CNN (Clinton News Network) lets be real. We know churches are not 20 years talking about the same thing, the media gathered up those few clips. Do I think the pastor is a bit racist, there’s no doubt about it. But to link Obama with the Pastor, No. First of all, people are forgetting (Maybe because of his color) that OBAMA is WHITE and BLACK! As much as people want to make Obama un-American…. he is not. Youtube videos showing him not Pledge to the flag? First of all he and the audience were the only smart people that knew the national anthem is not the pledge of allegiance, plus was the only one singing it when Clinton and the others didn’t even know the song. I friend of mines I knew for 23 years murdered two people, I hate him for doing such stupidity, but he was part of the family, and I see him like twice every year. But that doesn’t make me a murderer. I never knew or seen my cuz do anything criminal. It didn’t make my wife switch her mind on being with me, that because I’m my own person. People should pay attention to what Obama says and not his pastor, so as much as you want to make it look like Obama is un-American. That is such a Clinton!!! in other words such a LIE! I mean just look at her latest lie about her experience with Children health care, BUSTED!!! The Clinton were forced by the real people in SCHIP and they weren’t ready, and now they are taking all the credit that they created it.

  3. Hello Pedro, how much is the Obama campaign paying you for the spam? Or is it his shiney hopey-changiness that has you making excuses for his incredible claim that he just happened not to be at church for all those days his personal spiritual advisor, Wright, engaged in bigotry, hate and outright Troofer lies?

    Darleen (187edc)

  4. Just to be clear about Pedrobot


    Darleen (187edc)

  5. Wow, interesting link, DArleen.

    Is anybody buying what Obama’s selling here? I’m not. Wright is his long time spiritual advisor, not a mere groupie/supporter. The damage Wright’s hate is doing to blacks and to America should be enough for Obama to have cut links long ago. I feel sorry for the guy, but he should step down. It will be interesting to see what happens in Penn.

    Most outrageous rant? The sexual mocking of Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky from the pulpit. Ugly, ugly.

    Patricia (f56a97)

  6. I wonder if anybody in the media will ask Obama these questions:

    1. Where were you on Sunday, September 16, 2001?
    2. The DVD your church is sell of Rev. Wright’s “greatest hits.” Have you ever purchased one for yourself or for anybody else as gift?

  7. Shorter Obama:

    “Is it too late to claim that why yes, I have been a secret Muslim all along?”

  8. Evidence has begun in the Rezko trial. Starting with his role in the state’s Health Board. Will it lead to the University of Chicago? Right now, the Chicago media is focusing on Governor Blagojevich, the most unpopular governor to be reelected by a landslide if you believe them. We’ll see if the O-word is mentioned.

  9. we should totally be alarmed by what someone who is not obama said.

    stef (dfd808)

  10. I’m sure Stef feels the same way about anybody Bush has ever been found guilty by association with.

    kl (592cb4)

  11. This is not a personal attack, Stef, please. But were you not totally disgusted by Ron Paul’s support from Nazis, skinheads and idiot secessionist revisionists? In what respect is Wright better than Storm Front? Ok, he doesn’t hate black people, he hates America. He’s a politically correct hater. Want his disciple for President of America?

    nk (8a8387)

  12. Hillary v. Obama…
    To papaphrase HK:
    America would be better off if both of these candidates lost.

    It is becoming more and more appearant that in politics there are no clean skirts. If you find one, meditation and prayer are called for, for you have witnessed a miracle.

  13. “This is not a personal attack, Stef, please. But were you not totally disgusted by Ron Paul’s support from Nazis, skinheads and idiot secessionist revisionists? In what respect is Wright better than Storm Front? Ok, he doesn’t hate black people, he hates America. He’s a politically correct hater. Want his disciple for President of America?”

    This is a stupid comparison. Ron Paul did not attend a neo-nazi church for twenty years, call the neo-nazi pastor his “mentor”, get married by the neo-nazi pastor, have his children baptized by the neo-nazi pastor,have his young children attend the pastor’s hate rants masquerading as sermons, give tens of thousands of dollars of contributions to the neo-nazi church, appoint him to one of his his campaign advisory committees, etc, etc.

    All the stormfronters and “idiot secessionist revisionists” (?) did for Paul was contribute some apparently trivial amount of money. They were not friends, associates, “mentors”, recipients of subsidies from Paul or have any official or quasi-official role in his campaign.

    Linking Paul to nazis is an example of the guilt by association fallacy of the rawest and crudest kind.

    icr (004797)

  14. No, icr, you idiot. I’m saying that if Storm Front is a dealbreaker for any rational American, so is Wright. As for degree of culpability, Ron Paul could have said “If you hate, I don’t want you”. But he didn’t. And neither has Mayor Daley’s pet yet.

    nk (8a8387)

  15. When Obama fans start citing WND for support, you know things are getting shaky.

    Vermont Neighbor (c6313b)

  16. Actually ICR, given what Ron Paul had written under his byline in his newsletter in years past, nk’s analogy was pretty good.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  17. Hey, good news though about Hillary and Chelsea getting a subpoena, isn’t it? Thanks for that bit of audacious hope, Pedro. Maybe they’ll BOTH go down.

    Of course, if they did it would probably leave Al Gore standing as the nominee. But his positions have become so wacko that it would be a ball going after him.

    Don (c9e244)

  18. “I’m sure Stef feels the same way about anybody Bush has ever been found guilty by association with.”

    Who could that be?

    stef (57aa5a)

  19. Guys, Stef is a journalist. This is what passes for research and logic in her profession.

    That Wright makes Sharpton look moderate.
