The Obamas leave Trinity [Karl]

Byron York heard it on CNN. I just heard it confirmed on FNC.

Apparently, crazyass, race-baiting, crypto Marxist politics dressed up as religion just got to be too much… when it came out of the mouth of a white priest.  Much harder to play the race card as trump.

Update: At a Saturday night news conference, Obama discussed his decision:

“I’m not denouncing the church and I’m not interested in people who want me to denounce the church,” he said, adding that the new pastor at Trinity and “the church have been suffering from the attention my campaign has focused on them.”

Indeed,

Obama said he and his wife had discussed and prayed on the issue with Trinity’s senior pastor, the Rev. Otis Moss, and hoped that the decision would withdraw Trinity from the spotlight.

Moss is fully devoted to Trinity’s program of Black Liberation Theology, and on Good Friday compared the scrutiny of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s race-baiting and conspiracy theory-mongering to a “public lynching.”  As part of the hip-hop generation, Moss calls himself “a theological DJ” — and in one sermon alluded to an Ice Cube rap titled,  “Wrong N-gga to f— with.”  It includes the lyrics “F— America, still with the triple K” and it uses the spelling “AmeriKKKa.”  Last month, Obama said this:

Well, you know, the new pastor — the young pastor, Reverend Otis Moss, is a wonderful young pastor. And as I said, I still very much value the Trinity community.

This is the community which can be seen hooting their approval of the remarks made by Wright and Pfleger.

Black Liberation Theology devotee Dwight Hopkins predicted that Obama’s resignation would not have a lasting impact on this “community”:

“They didn’t come there because of Obama,” Hopkins said. “They came there because of the House that Wright that built. And it’s still standing.”

Obama went there for the same reason — and will not denounce those who stay with the church of the poisoned mind.

  1. A day late and a dollar short.

  2. If by “day” you mean “20 years,” yeah.

  3. But he gave them all that money. You think he’ll get a refund?

  4. They’re going to need a bigger bus.

  5. Maybe they’re switching to Pfleger.

  6. I swear, I am not his adviser.
    But just this morning in my answer to Dan’s post, I was suggesting that BHO has to do this. Leave the church….

  7. Rev. Moss may be rewriting tomorrow’s sermon right about now. I would think someone will be getting this one on tape.
    On the other hand, D. Axelrod should be knocking on Rev. Moss’s front door and he ought to have a fat manila envelope in his pocket.

  8. This is not a man who stands by his friends. He just hangs out with them while they’re useful and then after they’re not useful he goes and gets more usefuler friends. What a dick.

  9. Bad move, I think. The damage has been done, quitting now will to nothing to reassure those with doubts, the Bible and gun clingers, but could be disquieting and demoralizing to the little Che-heads populating the volunteers in the trenches. Remember, those people agree with the Trinity message.

  10. Is he going to tell us if he believes in black liberation theology anymore? Leaving the church doesn’t change the beliefs he held for the last two decades, does it? What a circus, send in the clowns!

  11. Also this really screws up all the parallelism Baracky’s media friends like NPR are trying to draw between Baracky and Mr. McCain. Mr. McCain didn’t have to throw his church to the curb out of shame. That’ll never happen cause Mr. McCain goes to a nice not-hatey church.

  12. B Moe
    Don’t you think BHO’s always over-estimated the strength of teh crazies and that’s why it took him so long to begin with?

  13. Mostly Mr. McCain’s church just sings songs and prays and stuff. They don’t hate on people and get all racist and praise anti-Semitic people to the high heavens.

  14. Hello Karl, I made you a new poster.

  15. Abandons his real family and upbringing for a make-believe version of his deadbeat daddy.
    Abandons his mentors.
    Abandons his religion.

    he’s got all the cymptons: Barry suffers from electile dysfunction.

  16. O! no!

  17. He has depended on the zealots to get him here organizationally. I think that has been his biggest advantage, as Karl as pointed out, organization is key, and it is easy to build one if you have a massive following of idealistic true-believer types. That was the reason for belonging to Trinity in the first place, it has nothing to do with religion, Obama needed the help of their machine to succeed in Chicago politics. Now he is throwing them out trying to recruit the very Bible-thumpers most of his national volunteer force disdain. It doesn’t send a good message to them.

  18. What’s that you were saying about judgement, Baracky?

  19. Change you can believe in – not so much.

  20. Change you can believe in – until it becomes politically inconvenient.

  21. My favorite part was where Ashley ate all those mustard and relish sandwiches. Hah. Baracky really had me going.

  22. Can we just pretend none of this crazy-ass racist, anti-semitic, conspiracy theory bullshit never happened?

    YES WE CAN!

  23. B Moe
    I agree with your analysis @ 18, though I have believed he could have thrown them over for a long time now and not suffered too awfully bad. Yes, these folks helped him get established in politics but he’s had an independent organization (and money, lotsa money) for awhile. There was always going to be a cost to pay for dumping his past. The question is how big, how bad a cost from the people getting dumped, as opposed to the cost to him from the outsiders (like us and others) watching him at a distance with no real skin in the game. I think the relative costs were better for Obama back in early April.

  24. Damn USA = good
    Damn HRC = bad

  25. Maybe O! will show up at Hagee’s church.

  26. thor is really working the homophobia today. Obama would be so proud.

  27. I have to wonder –
    Is “Thor” short for thorazine, or did Thor run short of his thorazine?

  28. Pingback: Obama kicks Trinity United to the curb, resigns Church membership? : Stop The ACLU

  29. You won’t have Reverend Wright to kick around anymore, because, gentlemen, this is my last sermon.

    Now, waffles!

  30. November can’t get here soon enough. Is it possible to get a national prescription for Xanax?

  31. Nothing says “I’m a pathetic political opportunist with poor judgement” like… well nearly everything Senator Obama does, really. He’s doing a great job at a horrible first run disaster that sets him up for a second run in 4 years.

  32. I want to check the score card:
    Florida and Michigan voters are now worth 1/2 a person…not even the same as a black slave in 1800.

    Ohio and Pennsylvania voters are bitter.

    West Virginia and Kentucky are racists.

    And lest we forget, women should be happy that a woman got second place…its better than they have done before.

  33. Operation Chaos rolls on to Denver.

  34. Now, let’s start talking about all the tax dollars that Obama has steered to Pfleger over the years in the Illinois senate and in the U.S. Senate.

    Also, Axelrod (Obama’s closest advisor) is tied at the hip to Pfleger.

    http://gretawire.foxnews.com/2008/05/31/senator-obamas-campaign-connection-to-rev-michael-pfleger/

    Does anyone know Obama’s position on slave reparations?

  35. - The hearings…..The O! fix is in. The party bosses have decided that hes there man and fuck the voters. The short cahnged delgate inclusion is the best way they could think of to shut them up. Now they’ll have to attend the convention, rather than simply botcott it, and floor fights can be controlled in the same way that hearing just was.

    - The bad news is the Dem leadership just signed their own political death warrant in the general. And they’re fucking happy about it. I’m trying to figure out how that stupid ass party thinks they can alienate so many of their own voters and still believe they have a chance to win.

    - Coupled with the announcement about the church, watch the crazies come out of the woodwork now.

  36. Does anyone know Obama’s position on slave reparations?

    Half of him says, “Yes”! The other half, “No”!

  37. - O! is momentarily going to “make himself crystal clear” by press conference on FOX, explaining why it takes him 20 years to make a decision. This should add even more fuel to the fire (in an eloquent speaking style!)

  38. When no one was watching but like-minded constituents, God Damn America, Roosting Chickens and Government AIDS Conspiracy and Pfleger’s White Guilt sermons were A-OK for O! (cue the Amen Corner).

    Now that they’re a political embarrassment, he picks up the Claude Raines defense and is shocked, shocked! there is fulminating lunacy in his church.

  39. - Karl – Is there anyway you can force the script to use tiny url for any and all commenter posted links? ….they’re really screwing up the page formating.

  40. No wonder Barry would sit down with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, he’s only half as crazy as the pastors in his ex-church!

  41. Hey, I got some posters for y’all too..

    The New Look Of Obama

  42. I prefer the dim bulb, myself :)

  43. Racist preacher in a church-house room,
    Hatey-change thing, with mind unstable,

    A deep rolling bass.

    Screeched and yelled and ranted out a fable,
    Ranted out a fable,
    Spewed an empty falsehood ’bout Whitey’s AIDS doom,
    Hard as he was able,
    Boom, boom, BOOM,
    With a fake dashiki and the handle of a broom,
    Boomlay, boomlay, boomlay, BOOM.
    THEN I had religion, THEN I had a vision.
    I could not turn from their revel in derision.

    More deliberate. Solemnly chanted.

    THEN I SAW OBAMA, CREEPING THROUGH THE BLACK,
    CUTTING THROUGH THE FOREST WITH A GOLDEN TRACK.
    Then along that riverbank
    A thousand miles
    Tattooed hippies danced in files;
    Then I heard the boom of the hip-hop song

    A rapidly piling climax of speed and racket.

    Amid posters of Che; also Mao Zedong
    And “HOPE” screamed the edicts and placards of the communists,
    “CHANGE” screamed the skull-faced, lean spin-doctors,
    “Spin ye the deadly changey babble,
    Raise ye the taxes,
    Pander to the rabble,
    Rattle-rattle, rattle-rattle,
    Bing.
    Boomlay, boomlay, boomlay, BOOM,”

    “Be careful what you do,

    All the o sounds very golden. Heavy accents very heavy. Light accents very light. Last line whispered.

    Or Barack Obama, Queen of the Drama,
    And all of the other
    Queens of the Drama,
    Barack Obama will hoo-doo you,
    Barack Obama will hoo-doo you,
    Barack Obama will hoo-doo you.”

  44. “our faith remains strong”
    O!

    You’re faith in what exactly you clown?

  45. It’s our fault.

    One reason Obama is giving for leaving is that he doesn’t want Trinity to have to be under a microscope.

    He’s also pointing to the difference between the worship style of black churches. Evidently, whites don’t understand.

    He also took offense at the suggestion that he joined Trinity for political connections. Yeah right; nice righteous indignation.

    Liar.

  46. Does anyone know Obama’s position on slave reparations?

    I don’t believe anyone’s asked him. Think Chris Matthews would ask him?

  47. Why not put the holy TUCC under a microscope? It was good enough for Saint Obama and his Paramour, and their Sacred Offspring, for twenty years. Plus tens of thousands of dollars in donations. And its preacher was good for book material, and provided the title as well. Why is Our Lord Barry so selfish? Doesn’t The Obamessiah want us to learn good Christian values from his chosen spiritual home of two decades? Wouldn’t he be doing us a favor by letting TUCC set an example for the unwashed hordes? Will The Saint of Chicago have to abandon other people who find themselves under a microscope due to His Holiness’s Notoriety? Will he have to divorce Michelle on account of the horrors of public scrutiny? I’m so glad St. Barack always does the right thing when no one is looking, as Michelle the Virginal Queen told us.

    Except for this instance, when everyone is staring and forced Barry to get off the goddamn pot and try to save face. You did not see this. This did not happen.

  48. Obama is such a class act.

    O!

  49. Wasn’t O!’s great-granddaddy (or was it Michelle’s) a slave owner? How would that work? You pay yourself?

  50. And, can he, or can’t he, keep the 401K?

  51. Obama has such a glass ass.

    Oink!

  52. And, do community organizers get 401Ks anyhoo.

  53. Obama is such glass hack.

    Can you believe I’m only on my first glass of wine? In my defense, it is a big glass.

  54. This whole story is just weird. You work hard, buy a house, buy some fruit when you can, and go to church. It’s all really very simple. No wonder Baracky wants change so much. Him and Michelle are overwhelmed and really just not cutting this whole we’re adults now thing.

  55. - Well he said it again “No I will not denounce Trinity because it is not a church worthy of denouncing”.

    - Don’t count Billery out. O! wasn’t able to get ‘er done before the specter of total racist voting on the part of the Black community became all to obvious, so now the inevitable White back lash sets in, and though she can’t come right out and say it directly, I’m seeing a lot of alarm in the local community.

  56. No wonder Baracky wants change so much. Him and Michelle are overwhelmed and really just not cutting this whole we’re adults now thing.

    Good thing they don’t live in Texas, they don’t like weird churches down there, you know.

  57. If community organization is non-profit it would fall under 403b.

  58. So, will he denounce Ayers before or after the convention? Bets, anyone?

  59. I can’t believe “they” made Barack give up his church.

  60. So let me see here.

    1) Senator McCain is smeared by being supported by some guy he’s barely met, has never attended a church at, and has no association with so he has to denounce them. That still isn’t enough for many on the left.

    2) Senator Obama doesn’t have to denounce the church he went to for decades, praised, and considered his home, repeatedly and fondly referring to it in his campaign in the past.

    Do I have this straight?

  61. BBH,

    Sadly, I don’t have the ability to force tinyURLs; that is above my pay grade. In fact, I was getting really narrow columns today that required me to “F5″ the apge.

  62. You don’t need to see his Church card. This isn’t the church you’re looking for. He can go on to the White House.

  63. - Basically Chris, except you left out the part where you’re not permitted to even question the Messiah. Check with Moe or BJ to see if you’re on the list permitted to speak, otherwise assume you have to STFU. That is all. As you were.

  64. How will Obama fit anyone else under that bus I wonder? Especially with the wheels coming off?

    TUCC will be the least of his worries. Baracky now needs a fallout shelter. There’s too many people who will now be righteously annoyed.

    Oh, Thor, your poster. Fixed it for you.

    Why not have html buttons like @ Hot Air?

  66. Hey, could you get someone from the Street Cleaning Division over here? I’m gettin’ kinda grossed out by the squish.

  67. - Put a sockpuppet in it. Its a diversified squish under the big bus.

  68. As I posted on another thread, what’s the long and short on BHO throwing Axelrod under the bus before November?

  69. - I’m still trying to find the pool on how long it will take Hill-Bot to lawyer up. The DNC threw her just enough of a bone that she may wait til the convention to break out the shoulder launched Feminazi rockets.

  70. CNN

    Some Obama supporters, including U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler of Florida, said that disconnecting from the church signaled a chance for the campaign to move on.

    “I think it bodes well for us in the general election that we can put whatever issues there were behind us in respect to the church,” Wexler said

    Nothing to see, wingnuts. Move on and if ya mention again, you’re nothing but RACISTS!!N!!! and agents against the Changey!Hopeyness!!(tm)

  71. “I think it bodes well for us in the general election that we can put whatever issues there were behind us in respect to the church,” Wexler said

    Who is this “we” he refers to?

  72. Comment by happyfeet on 5/31 @ 4:43 pm #
    This is not a man who stands by his friends. He just hangs out with them while they’re useful and then after they’re not useful he goes and gets more usefuler friends. What a dick.

    Yeah, the journo is right. Obama should hold onto the only lodestone the right wing has until they can finally scare all the whiteys with it! Real men don’t give up a church just because the Right and Karl have scared all the ignorant white folks. A true friend keeps the assocaition until Human Events, Floyd Brown, the Corner, and the Weekly Standard can scare all the good whitefolk away.

    Nice analysis, ‘feet.

  73. I think that the phrase “a day late and a dollar short” was coined for moments such as this.

  74. @#75

    Leave Dan out of this.

  75. true friend keeps the assocaition until Human Events, Floyd Brown, the Corner, and the Weekly Standard can scare all the good whitefolk away

    Father Pfleger, is that you?

  76. Lodestone? RACIST!!!!

  77. I see an opportunity for exciting new additions to our language.

    “The candidate was plfegged and forced to barack his church.”

  78. dre,

    While I have posting privileges here, I do not have the top level of privileges that would be needed to implement a HotAir-esque comment system. Indeed, our host Jeff has his wife do that sort of stuff. I’ll bring the URL problem (along with others — like the fact that Google is not indexing the site) to his attention when he returns from vacation.

  79. Comment by Christopher Taylor on 5/31 @ 7:08 pm

    So let me see here.

    1) Senator McCain is smeared questioned by being supported by some guy he’s barely metby seeking and obtaining the endorsement of a notorious church leader, has never attended a church at, and has no association with other than seeking and obtaining said endorsement so he has to denounce them disavows the endorsement. That still isn’t enough for many (actual numbers irrelevant) on the left.

    2) Senator Obama doesn’t have to denounce the church he went to for decades, praised, and considered his home, repeatedly and fondly referring to it in his campaign in the past.

    Do I have this straight?

    Yes.

  80. He’s increased my bitterness and I now have a deathgrip on my guns and my God.

  81. Real men don’t give up a church just because the Right and Karl have scared all the ignorant white folks.

    Translation: Black racism is A-OK!

  82. I love O! He makes me feel so stupid.

  83. Rob, what is this “Black racism” you speak of?

  84. The entire Democratic race has just been one long freakshow.

  85. “I’m not denouncing the church and I’m not interested in people who want me to denounce the church,” he said, adding that the new pastor at Trinity and “the church have been suffering from the attention my campaign has focused on them.”

    That’s my Obama! The guy can make a “non-denunciation denunciation” better than anybody I know. :)

    Obama’s next move? Join the “Church of the Month Club”–that way he can really be “all things to all people.”

  86. Rob, what is this “Black racism” you speak of?

    Yeah, I know. It doesn’t exist; can’t exist. They’re powerless, and powerless people can’t be racist.

    Even if their rhetoric is the same as white supremacists, except with the colors reversed.

    I do wonder exactly what trinity they revere at TUCC; it’s certainly not Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Perhaps Marx, Malcolm, and Wright himself?

  87. WTF is pennypucker vomiting about? And Rob, you are correct. I guess balck racism is A-ok. Crackers.

  88. Huh. Senator McCain sought the endorsement of pastor Hagee? That’s news to…. well everyone, including Hagee and McCain. I guess you can spin it any way you want on the left though.

  89. “I’m not denouncing the church …”

    No, it would be so judgmental to denounce Marxist loon-buckets who pose as preachers. Judgmentalism is strictly reserved for people who differ with his big-government solutions.

  90. - Questions that, among about 4000 other reasons, make me glad I’m not a jackass DemoKrat:

    - Wtf ever happened to all that donkey braying about separation of church and state, when a baby needs murdering, or a Christmas tree needs attacking? In other words wtf is a church doing meddling in and preaching politics in the first place? Does anyone give a shit that they enjoy tax free operation, or was there a law passed I missed that makes all churches into 527′s during election time?

    - Why isn’t the FED asking this question, and why isn’t someone asking O!?

  91. When a church describes itself as ‘the House that X built’ rather than ‘the House that Jesus built,’ you know right away that something is wrong with the place.

  92. Traditionally, the Messiah is betrayed by his closest followers. With Obama, it’s the other way around.

    That’s change you can believe in!

  93. Just had one of those “Aha!” moments that a man only experiences around the toilet.

    Isn’t it fitting that a priest helped reveal a false Messiah?

  94. Trinity-lite, all the taste of a full bodied black liberation theology with half the hate.

  95. Isn’t it fitting that a priest helped reveal a false Messiah?

    And that it’s a white man keeping Baracky down?

  96. The Dems do not care because they own the Congress. As a last resort they will find a way to seat Democratic representatives on the Electoral College.

  97. why doesn’t someone ask Obama how he feels about the congregation when they scream in support of the hate rhetoric?
    Those are his people after all and he is one of them.

  98. The House that Wright Built! Can it get more blasphmous than that! Well, it’s obvious who they worship in that church.

    Unless the LORD builds the house,
    They labor in vain who build it; (Psalm 127:1)

  99. Senator Obama, is,to put it indelicately, a pussy. When the going gets tough, he throws grandma under the bus. When the gong gets tough, he votes present. Back in the day when it was cool to be radical, he pretended to be radical. When it was cool to hob nob with domestic terrorists, he hob nobbed. When it was cool to join a radical racist church, he joined. And when it got too hot, he threw his church under the bus. What a man.

    Obama would be a disaster in the White House. He only acts under duress, and his judgment has proven poor time and time again. He knew moths ago that this day was coming as witnessed by his pathetic attempt to distance himself from Wright at the time he announced his candidacy, but the gutless twerp couldn’t do what he knew had to be done. Now the chickens have come home to roost, and they’ll be crapping on him from now until November.

    I wonder if Barry wears an apron when he does the dishes. Michelle sure as hell doesn’t.

  100. Pingback: Liberty Pundit

  101. Anyone seen Michelle’s ‘I hate Whitey’ tape?

  102. This should put an end to right-wing disinformation about how Obama’s actually a Muslim. After all, it’s not like he’s earned the extra credit.

  103. Can anyone explain why the TUCC website still shows that the “retired” Rev. Wright is the senior pastor of the church? And why the Rev. Moss as pastor works under the direction of Rev. Wright? Sounds like the “retirement” was all staged to take the heat off Obama as well.

  104. Obama is shocked…shocked that these terrible things were being said in his church….and, and, and, those people…they looked like they were enjoying it all….

    Why, he had no idea that there were those kinds of things being felt, and spoken, there. After all, he only attended the church briefly…for 20 years, was married there, and, worst of all, exposed his young children to this vile hatred…..

    What a pusillanimous, palavering, popinjay!!!

    He knew darn well what the church’s dogma was. He knew darn well what revs. Wright and Moss and Phleger were all about. Not only was it politically expedient for him to belong to trinity; it’s warped, Marxist, form of Christianity, black liberation theology, conformed well to his red diaper baby upbringing as well as appealing to the ideals inculcated through his ultra left wing academic experience.

    Oddly enough, this episode exposes Obama for the hypocritical, usurpacious, fair weathered friend type of individual he really is. His proclamation of being a new kind of politician, practicing a whole new brand of politics, is pure poppycock!

    The only thing remotely revolutionary about his campaign, besides the Marxist idealism exhibit by his Che Guevara loving campaign workers, is his campaign’s brilliant use of the internet to produce at times what appear to be an Orwellian mental synergy, and an ominous cult of personality reminiscent of the former Soviet Union. Otherwise, it is the traditional, opportunistic politics of useful friendships, sordid cloakroom dealings, and vote purchasing constituent pay-offs.

    Most of the mainstream media will herald this as a “bold” move that will afford Obama a “fresh” start, unencumbered by any stigma of radical racist associations. In the usual fashion, they will declare that “the debate is over” and “the matter is closed”. Any attempt to question him about his 20 years there will be dismissed as “dwelling on the past” or the perfunctory “distraction from the important issues”.

    What’s really important is that if the tables were turned, and Maverick had sat idly by listening to the pontifications of the grand poo-bah of the KKK, or some other white supremacist, he would have been TOAST long ago. Not only do the mainstream media tolerate reverse racism, most outlets are actively engaged in trying to get Obama elected. I wonder if they really believe in him, or are they emulating the head of the Illinois state legislature; the man who decided he would play king maker and get Obama elected to the US senate.

    Exit question; are the mainstream media wanna-be king makers or simply useful idiots; I’ll let you decide………….

  105. palavering? usurpatious? sheesh, give the thesaurus a rest. Both of those are not even used in the proper context, brainiac.

  106. Obama is a national security threat.

  107. Hey Yall,

    Just puffin on the cigar and thinking when the next pile of hot steaming shit is going to hit the fan again. Hill baby is gunna get the nod real soon. In the next few days you will hear more of these bowel belching racist remarks from FOB..friends of Barry. The poor bastard just didn’t think these piles of stinky dung would grow legs and walk. Yep, good ol Hildabeast…I mean Hill, is sittin in the drivers seat.

    Bill

  108. I note that O! and his hate whitey wife have resigned for personal reasons. Now, I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer (Though I did catch a 50.5 pound Cobia yesterday…just bragging), but I believe he should have used the phrase “Political Decision”. Because, it sure is the single most naked move he’s made yet. I really gotta get into this political stuff, all these people are morons.

  110. What a circus, send in the clowns!

    To coin a phrase: Don’t bother… they’re here.

  111. Does this mean that a President Obama when confronted with a Congress that doesn’t conform to his wishes will leave the country ?

    He doesn’t know how to fix a damn thing.

  112. Neo – he has never been called out for this stuff before, it has never been a problem. What does a Cook County hack from the south side of Chicago do when his allies from there prove to be poisonous in an election that involves the rest of the country? How far can he distance himself from his political roots, and how many are willing to turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to the dissonance? That is where it will get interesting.

  113. jim,

    IIRC, his retirement has been reported as effective tomorrow.

  115. Obama went there for the same reason — and will not denounce those who stay with the church of the poisoned mind.

    You are right that that church is a freakshow, but haven’t we had enough of the denounce-o-rama? They are really pointless and no one cares. It is not like some meaningless denunciation will explain away anything. So why slap all those churchgoers in the face? Just pick up your coat and leave the premises.

  116. I want to hear him denounce those ideas, Lisa. I want him to explain why he is so close to people like Wright and Pfleger, and how he could stand to watch people cheer on this kind of racist spew for 20 years.

  117. So why slap all those churchgoers in the face? Just pick up your coat and leave the premises.

    If he had done that a couple of years ago, he wouldn’t have this problem now. He was stupid not to, especially when we know he and Wright talked about the problems this would present to his campaign a year and a half ago.
