The Wright Stuff: ABC provides the context

posted at 5:32 pm on April 24, 2008 by Ed Morrissey

Barack Obama needs another eruption of the Wright Stuff like he needs another video of him making fun of embittered Bible-thumping bigots, but at least the former appears inevitable. ABC News responds to Jeremiah Wright’s allegation that his words were taken out of context … by providing the context. And guess what? The context makes it look just as bad:

Rev. Jeremiah Wright says his sermons were deliberately taken out of context by the news media “for a political purpose” and to “paint me as some sort of fanatic.”

“When something is taken like a sound bite for a political purpose and constantly over and over again, looped in the face of the public. That’s not a failure to communicate,” he told Bill Moyers in his first interview since ABC News Good Morning America first broadcast portions of his sermons. The Moyers interview will be broadcast tomorrow evening on PBS.

Wright says the use of the his controversial statements- -saying the US brought on the 9/ll attacks and that Black Americans should sing God Damn America instead of God Bless America—were “unfair” and “unjust” and were used “for some very devious reasons.”

Once again, we have the complaint that quoting someone accurately amounts to devious behavior. Selectively quoting someone to remove context can be devious, but the only one doing that is … Barack Obama, at least twice so far in the campaign. He flat-out misquoted John McCain in claiming that McCain said he would want 100 years of war, and he recently put out an ad that completely mischaracterized McCain’s view on the economy by cutting out a significant portion where he said that times had gotten tough recently. So far, Obama hasn’t apologized for either, although he has stopped using at least the first claim lately.

So did Jeremiah Wright get the same treatment? Let’s look at the fuller context of his more controversial remarks. The first is his infamous sermon delivered just five days after 9/11, when Americans crowded into churches for comfort and resolve. What did Trinity United Church deliver? Emphases mine:

I heard Ambassador Peck on an interview yesterday, did anybody else see him or hear him? He was on Fox News, this is a white man, and he was upsetting the Fox News commentators to no end. He pointed out, did you see him John, a white man, and he pointed out, an ambassador, that what Malcolm X said when he got silenced by Elijah Mohammed was in fact true, America’s chickens are coming home to roost. We took this country by terror, away from the Sioux, the Apache, the Arowak, the Comanche, the Arapahoe, the Navajo. Terrorism. We took Africans from their country to build our way of ease and kept them enslaved and living in fear. Terrorism. We bombed Granada and killed innocent civilians, babies, non-military personnel. We bombed the black civilian community of Panama with stealth bombers and killed unarmed teenagers and toddlers, pregnant mothers, and hardworking fathers. We bombed Qaddafi’s home and killed his child. Blessed are they who bash your children’s head against a rock. We bombed Iraq. We killed unarmed civilians trying to make a living. We bombed a plant in Sudan to payback for the attack on our embassy, killed hundreds of hardworking people, mothers and fathers who left home to go that day not knowing that they would never get back home. 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. Kids playing in the playground, mothers picking up children from school, civilians, not soldiers, people just trying to make it day by day.

We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and Black South Africans and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost.

In other words, we had it coming. We have no right to complain about terrorism when America is apparently the greatest terrorist state in history. Do you notice whom Wright never blames? The actual terrorists who had just murdered 3,000 of his countrymen. And talking about context, notice that Wright never provides any context for the actions against Japan, Libya, Panama, and Granada. In his speech, we just up and decided one day to murder Qaddafi’s child.

Next up is the 2003 sermon in which he tells his flock to sing “God Damn America” in 2003:

The British government failed, the Russian government failed, the Japanese government failed, the German government failed, and the United States of America government, when it came to treating her citizens of Indian descent fairly, she failed. She put them on reservations. When it came to treating her citizens of Japanese decent fairly, she failed. She put them in internment prison camps. When it came to treating her citizens of African descent fairly, America failed. The government put them in chains. She put them on slave quarters, put them on auction blocks, put them in cotton fields, put them in inferior schools, put them in sub-standard housing, put them in scientific experiments, put them in the lowest paying jobs, put them outside the equal protection of the law, kept them out of their racist bastions of higher education, and locked them into positions of hopelessness and helplessness. The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three strike law, and then wants us to sing God Bless America — no, no, no

Not God bless America, God damn America. That’s in the Bible, for killing innocent people. God damn America for treating her citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme. The United States government has failed the vast majority of her citizens of African descent. Think about this, think about this.

For every one Oprah, a billionaire, you’ve got 5 million blacks who out of work. For every one Colin Powell, a millionaire, you’ve got 10 million blacks who cannot read. For every one Condoskeeza Rice, you’ve got 1 million in prison. For every one Tiger Woods, who needs to get beat, at the Masters, with his cap, blazin’ hips playing on a course that discriminates against women. God has his way of bringing you up short when you get to big for your cap, blazin britches. For every one Tiger Woods, we got 10,000 black kids who will never see a golf course. The United States government has failed the vast majority of her citizens of African descent.

The government gives blacks drugs? This is the conspiracy theory that the Reagan administration’s CIA acted to flood American cities with crack cocaine so that the wave of violence it inspired would give the government an excuse to imprison black men. Somehow in that same thought, the government has conspired to keep black kids from golf courses. While it’s mostly true about illiteracy — in 2003, it would have been closer to 7 million than 10 million — Hispanics had a far higher illiteracy rate (44% to 23%) and illiterate whites were double the number of illiterate blacks (over 14 million).

Wright is a conspiracist, a demagogue, and at heart someone who doesn’t much like America. Like William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, he spends his venom on the US and embraces dictators like Fidel Castro and terrorists like Hamas, whose screeds he publishes in Trinity’s weekly newsletters. Far from absolving Obama, the context once again forces Obama to answer for the company he keeps.

Sure thing, Reverend. Except Tiger isn’t black, by his own admission. He identifies himself as Asian. Regardless, those 10,000 black kids don’t deserve to see a golf course. If they want to see one, they’ll find a way.

So if huckabee is nominated…Is he going to win?
SoCalInfidel on April 24, 2008 at 8:15 PM

Yes. God made it clear to me that Mike Huckabee is the next POTUS. God didn’t give me the details of how, He just told me to be still, and know that He is God; He will be exalted among the nations, He will be exalted in the earth!

This is for His glory. It won’t be done by man’s power, it will be done by God’s power. For all of the atheists who are looking for a sign that God is real and that He is who He says He is, this is their sign…God is going to do something that man thinks is impossible…take a God-fearing and God-honoring man who the world says has no chance and raise him up to be the next President of the United States.

Being the kind of person I am, I try to figure the other details out…but I’m starting to think that my doing that is being disobedient…He’s told me to “be still and know”, so I need to be obedient and stop trying to figure it all out.

Red Pill on April 25, 2008 at 12:21 AM

Wright might as well have gone on Larry King Live, he already was going to get the soft treatment from King as he did from Moyers, he might as well have done it on a station that had the capabilities of being seen by more than twenty people!

But we all know Mr Wright only agreed to be on with Moyers because the latter would give him an easy time. Coward. He can dish it out but he can’t take it from a tough interviewer. Just imagine if he had gone a more tough venue, like say The O’Reilly Factor (just disregard whether you like the O’Reilly or not).

Yoosaion on April 25, 2008 at 2:40 AM

Rev. Wright stopped short of naming all the sucessful blacks he could think of in his rant. O.J. and Wesley Snipes were conveniently left out. Didn’t they fall in this “sucessful black” category?

Oh, and all those “sucessful” Rap performers have been such great role models for those young black kids that will never see a golf course.

JetBlast on April 25, 2008 at 2:46 AM

Gee, I grew up never having seen a golf course, and I’m not black. It didn’t keep me poor, not having seen a golf course, and I suspect it would not have, even had I been black. And Colin Powell, or Tiger Woods, or Condeskeeza (sic) Rice make more than I do; does that make me poor, or even jealous?

If the Rev Wright wants to see true poverty, he really should go to Zimbabwe, where there’s a ruler who seems to have taken his sermons to heart, and has turned a country which exported food into one which must import it.

I have to admit that I am contemptuous of the Rev. Wright and his $10M home, which he has obtained by calling me, among other things, a Garlic Nose.

Riches earned by doing good deeds do not make me jealous, riches earned by bad deeds do offend me greatly.

unclesmrgol on April 25, 2008 at 2:52 AM

The only context I need is the date he carried his speech:
9/16/2001

max on April 25, 2008 at 5:06 AM

Remove the race issue and you’ll see that Wright’s positions are typical of an extreme leftist political point of view such as that of Noam Chomsky. Many in the left wing of the Dhimmicrat party agree with these positions but are smart enough not to articulate them in public.

A more experienced politician would have bailed immediately with the spin machine in full bore, but now the slowly evolving story is demonstrating that his entourage is packed with the dregs of the leftist backwaters.

Annar on April 25, 2008 at 6:33 AM

What’s stunning is Wright’s absolute lack of historical knowledge. He is a man who seems to have gleaned history from radical tracts and not from well-researched books from established authorities. He seems to think that the American government started the slave trade. Actually, the organized trade in African slaves was started by the Portuguese long before America had a government. They were sold captives from African inter-tribal wars and the middle men were Muslim Arabs. America was actually a secondary player in the slave trade. The great majority of slaves were doomed to the sugar fields of Cuba and the mines and plantations of South America. Slavery is America’s birth defect, but America was not the only actor in that crime. As for his discussion of Indian wars and World War II, his knowledge is equally sketchy. Many of the tribes that were destroyed in America’s western expansion gained their lands the same way the whites did: They took them from weaker people. They were not innocent. And yes, the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were awful, but the invasion of Japan that was prevented by the atom bombings would have been far more devastating, killed many more Japanese civilians, and destroyed the Japanese culture. The atom bombs were not a crime, they were a merciful end to a war that could have lasted well into the 1950s and killed millions more on both sides. Wright needs to read a book or two and not just spout his “I hate America” view of history.

fleiter on April 25, 2008 at 7:06 AM

Anyhow, I think Obama’s candidacy is giving us all a nice glimpse into how serious the marxist rot and racist resentments have spread throughout a lot of the black community. I don’t think that’s the “conversation on race” he was wanting to start, but so be it.

funky chicken on April 24, 2008 at 5:48 PM

Very astute observation. These are the chickens that will “come home to roost.” Time to stop coddling generations of people on welfare and encouraging them to live in ghettos where there are no jobs. We are creating an underclass that is every bit as dangerous as the Moslems in Europe.

Ummmm Rev. Wright, the liberals have had control over virtually every inner city school system for 40 years, and what has it accomplished. Your leaders, that you so honor, have been the ones leading minorities down the path of illiteracy for the past 40 years.
I feel it is a shame that the black leaders can have an education, but for every one of you, you deny 10,000 black children to be educated….God D*mn you Reverend…

right2bright on April 25, 2008 at 9:21 AM

Even when the context is provided, it really isn’t. Part of the key information to the first quote is provided (but not emphasized by Mr. Morrissey)when it says:

“I heard Ambassador Peck on an interview yesterday, did anybody else see him or hear him? He was on Fox News, this is a white man, and he was upsetting the Fox News commentators to no end. He pointed out…”

Everything that is said after that was a quote of Edward Peck, who is a former US Ambassador to Iraq, deputy director of Reagan’s terrorism task force, and served in the Army a a paratrooper. The words are Mr. Peck’s, and that’s what nobody seems to focus on. The last sentence of the quote from ABC is “America’s chickens are coming home to roost,” but this was not the end of the “context,” however. After this, Wright said:

“Violence begets violence, hatred begets hatred and terrorism begets terrorism. A white ambassador said that y’all, not a black militant. Not a reverend who preaches about racism. An ambassador whose eyes are wide open and who is trying to get us to wake up…” (The speech is here. The part quoted above is at 5:35.)

Everything Wright said in between “I heard Ambassador Peck on an interview yesterday” and “a white ambassador said that y’all” is a quote of Mr. Peck.

So why are we not focusing on Mr. Peck, the author of these words?? Why are we not focusing on the fact that Reagan employed a person who would utter such evilness?

Mr. Peck also said:
“Yes, well, certainly, you can think of a number of countries that have been involved in [international terrorism.] Ours is one of them. Israel is another.”

So why doesn’t the news media talk about Mr. Peck? Isn’t that strange?

Besides, we all know black conservatives do not exist.

dave742 on April 25, 2008 at 9:45 AM

Imagine that Obama becomes president and appoints a man as director of a terrorism task force who then says what Peck said (everything in Morrissy’s first quote). I can’t even imagine what the resulting media circus would be like. But when the deputy director of a terrorism task force who was appointed by Reagan makes the statements talked about of this thread, the media blames it on Obama’s black preacher.

It’s that damned liberal media supporting Obama again.

dave742 on April 25, 2008 at 10:17 AM

As far as I can tell, Rev. Wrights version of Black Liberation Theology has only managed to liberate hard earned dollars from his parishioners wallet to line his own pocket with. He has also managed to liberate his mind from rational, logical thought as well.

jcarl4283 on April 25, 2008 at 10:23 AM

dave ?

Talking about Wright, who cares what another moonbat named Peck said ?

Are you saying that Wright was just quoting what Peck said ?

If so then they ARE BOTH FULL OF IT … one white guy and one black guy, who happens to be your saviors SPIRITUAL advisor and mentor …

Who is Peck a mentor too ? Wright maybe, but certainly not anyone we are considering electing to the POTUS …

Please step back from the fog that Obama has you in and try to think clearly about this man. You know he is not a moderate. You know he has radical friends and advisors. You know he has a very liberal voting record. You know he has never reached across the aisle to conservatives.

Knowing all of these things why does he continue to try and convince you that is actually a moderate ?

He is lying to you and using you for his own political ambitions.

jcarl4283 on April 25, 2008 at 10:32 AM

He is totally insane, and anyone who follows him has to be just as bugfrick nuts.

jcarl4283:

“Are you saying that Wright was just quoting what Peck said?”

Yes, and I showed that very clearly. Wright obviously thinks Peck’s remarks should be listened to, but I am wondering why the fact that a Reagan employee actually made these remarks to begin with is not ever spoken about in the media. Nobody knows this fact. Did you? Why do you think this point is glossed over?

“Knowing all of these things…”

What you “know” about Obama is a collage of BS no different than what I showed this Wright quote to be. Deal with facts. Tell me specifically what you “know” about Obama that makes him any different than any other Republicrat.

“You know he has radical friends and advisors.”

Like who? Dennis Ross? If you think Dennis Ross is radical, you don’t want to meet me.

dave742 on April 25, 2008 at 9:25 AM

Because Mr. Peck, of whom none of us I expect have ever heard, is irrelevant.

The not-so-reverend Wright takes his cue from ‘black liberation theology’ writers, too. And from goodness knows who else. They don’t matter.

What’s important is that the likely Democrat nominee for President sat for 20 years in Wright’s church and listened to this wild-eyed poppycock, and sat there, and sat there, and did not get up and leave, and did not take his wife and daughters out of that den of lies. He sat there because he agreed with what Wright was spouting, week after week. He made Wright his ‘spiritual mentor’, and was going to include Wright in his campaign, until Wright got too hot to handle.

It’s the relationship between Obambi and Wright that’s at issue. We don’t care about Peck or anyone else that might have said similar things years ago. We want to know what Obambi thinks, and Wright’s words are a pretty good indicator.

MrLynn on April 25, 2008 at 12:12 PM

MrLynn:

“Wright’s words are a pretty good indicator.”

You mean Peck’s words as quoted by Wright.

“sat for 20 years in Wright’s church and listened to this wild-eyed poppycock”

And exactly how much do you know about what Wright said over the past 20 years? What you know about Wright is culled from a few single line quotes which were hand picked by people with a specific agenda. Have you ever even listened to a single complete sermon? Or do you only need 10 words to judge a human by.
Actually, your knowledge about all subjects is likely based on similar grounds. God forbid you actually pick up a book not written by someone on the far write to get a more complete picture of a subject. People like you make it extremely easy for leaders to manipulate entire populations.

Although it’s irrelevant to the Obama-Wright thing, I find Wright’s special animosity toward Tiger Woods really fascinating.

I don’t need to review Wright’s sermons or diatribes for the past 20 years. He markets these lowlights on DVD as “Rev. Wright’s greatest hits.” Obambi signed a declaration agreeing with Wright’s odious “Black Liberation Theology”. And on and on.

For that matter, I don’t really give a damn about Wright, except insofar as he is an exemplar of what’s wrong with inner-city ‘black’ culture. But I don’t want to see an advocate of this dangerous and vile ideology sitting in the White House.

As for your lame (but predictable of leftists) ad hominem attack, one large raspberry.

MrLynn on April 25, 2008 at 4:49 PM

I don’t think Wright believes half of what he says. He is in it for the money. He began as a traditional black church. Couldn’t get the congregation he needed to fill the coffers. Changed to a fiery, black liberation theology type church and voila. He’s got a fancy house in an almost all white neighborhood. The man is a snake oil salesman.

Sue on April 25, 2008 at 5:35 PM

The Rev has made a great living stirring up his zombies. Now he’s retiring to a multi-million dollar home in a rich White neighborhood. Screw the red man, the black man, the Japanese, the Panamanian and all the other victims. The Rev got’s his, and his chickens are roosting with killer Whitey, and away from all that zombie trash back at the congregation.

Funny how few Black Americans have time to spend helping their own back in Africa, unless it’s someone like Kadafi. The whole entitled group are too busy fretting over the fact that they live in the country that treats Blacks better than anywhere else on Earth, and should get up off their pew warmers and make big money like their prophet.

Hening on April 25, 2008 at 5:41 PM

Hugh Hewitt just played two full sermons so Wright can’t lie and say his words were taken out of context. He is certifiable, America hating racist. I Obama could sit in that pew for 20 years, he’s unfit to lead this country.

Brilliantly written Ed.
I’d add a bit about the ‘Reverend’ Jeresmiter Wright: he’s a Racist with a Hitleresque delivery–when he’s in his black separatist pulpit, but not when he’s being interviewed by (gag) Moyers or the other two Obama CNN handiwipes featured here. Now that he’s retired, he’s Mr. Calm and Cool with a circular, condescending rhetoric that never answers questions.
I would love to hear from the majority of black churches that do not preach hatred; they see right thru this race-baiter who knows that he’d be out of a job if he didn’t keep stirring the racist pot and keeping his community ignorant and enraged.
