Jeremiah Wright Blames "Them Jews" For Denying Access To President

President Barack Obama's controversial former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, is blaming "them Jews" for keeping him from speaking to the president.

Wright, the former pastor of Chicago's Trinity United Church of
Christ, said he hasn't spoken to Obama since he became president.

"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 when he's a lame duck,
or in eight years when he's out of office," Wright told the Daily
Press of Newport News following a Tuesday night sermon at the 95th
annual Hampton University Ministers' Conference.

"They will not let him to talk to somebody who calls a spade
what it is. ... I said from the beginning: He's a politician; I'm a
pastor. He's got to do what politicians do."

Obama was a longtime member of the church but resigned from it
and cut ties with Wright after videos surfaced during the
presidential campaign showing Wright's sometimes provocative
sermons. Wright's incendiary comment included shouting "God damn
America" and accusing the government of creating AIDS.

In the interview Tuesday, Wright also criticized Obama for not
sending a U.S. delegation to the World Conference on Racism held
recently in Geneva, Switzerland, saying Obama chose not to for fear
of offending Jews and Israel.

"Ethnic cleansing is going on in Gaza. Ethnic cleansing (by)
the Zionist is a sin and a crime against humanity, and they don't
want Barack talking like that because that's anti-Israel," Wright

The White House declined to comment to the Associated Press on
Thursday on Wright's remarks. A phone message left by the AP at
Wright's home wasn't immediately returned.

    Had Obama not become president, the two would still be close friends

    sorry, still don't trust Obama and it has nothing to do with race. There are plenty of great black leaders who would have been a much better presidential pick. (and if it matters I am African American). I never voted for him but then I did'nt vote for McCain either. Neither of them were qualified. Jeremiah Wright is bad news.

    Jeremiah Wright is a joke! He is the devil himself craving for attention. The word of God needs to preach to help save lives and all he can think of is ways to get attention. Nobody but the devil!

    obama has split with wright over his earlier comments during the election. wright is a racist, pure and simple. obama is not acting like he is a Christian as he said he was...numerous examples exist, but the biggest is not participating in the national day of prayer - as previous presidents have done - both democrats and republicans.

    Anybody who says God damn America should not even have the right to live in this country. That's like wishing that Osama Bin Laden would cause more chaos for America than what he has already done or wishing that the unemployment rate was at least 90% or something like that. To DawnNc, it actually sounds like he does not need to be around the museum guard shooter unless you want them both dead. When you have a black racist and a white racist get near each other, that is what could be the starting point of WWIII. That is the LAST thing the United States needs. As bad as the federal government is, we all know that no government can cause AIDS. That's a statement of nonsense. Other than that, that so called Reverend needs prayer.

    If white pastor had made just one racist comment the NAACP would be all over it.

    I think this is a sad man. He needs to be reading the bible a lot more and praying God and Jesus will forgive him . If he hates Jews then he hates Jesus! I am a proud christian and adopted Jew. This is a moron who thinks the Holocaust did not happen either. I do not agree with all people regardless of color,but I do not hate them. I do not like ignorant people ! I do not like people who cause trouble and I do not like criminals and druggies and thuggies! This man is a shameful man to the black race! like Hitler was to the white and German people. I pray the man will wise up and change but bigots are all alike they will not change till something happens to them. GODS BLESS ALL AMERICANS!

    obuma should not be turning his back on his mentor. obuma hung out with Wight for over 20 years and nodded his head and said amen when he said his stupid comments. The real obuma could never have been elected.

    The anti-semitism will spill over into the presidency. It already has. Wright is a minister of what? Christ was a Jew. I am too, adopted.
