Today, Hillary said that Jeremiah Wright wouldn’t have been her pastor. No sh*t, really? I’m stunned. You coulda fooled me, I thought she loved the black church and “don’t feel no ways tired” of being racially condescending to black folks.
Honestly though, I am stunned by her audacity and hypocrisy regarding the man who was called to the White House on September 11, 1998 to give “spiritual counseling” to a president engulfed by scandal and exposed as a liar and serial philanderer. Dr. Wright was apparently good enough to be a Black religious prop in a public relations fraud then and too damaged to be a Black minister of the gospel and Pastor to Barack Obama now.
After remaining mute for over a damn week, why say anything at all? Perhaps it was because she felt the need to deflect attention away from her bogus little Bosnia war story. What story, Skeptical Brotha? It’s the story you haven’t seen run in a continuous loop on every networks freakin’ programs for a week in a calculated effort to poison the electorate against her.
Last week, Senator Clinton told a tall tale of her legendary heroism and foreign policy cachet, “I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”
Somebody attempted to assassinate the First Lady of the United States in a damn foreign country and this is the first we’re hearing of it? Wow. Move over Zena, there is a new warrior princess in town. What a piece of work. As Barack Obama is being mauled by a racist, duplicitous and rabid press corps over something somedbody else said, the warrior princess is allowed to escape accountability for a week for lying to their faces about her so-called “foreign policy experience.” Now that’s a double standard worth discussing. Quick, somebody go find Geraldine Ferraro.
