Once again Obama’s pastor of 20 years has returned, this time at the so called, “Million Man March” which was more like, “Possibly Tens of Thousands” March. Since the National Park Service was told to stop giving estimates on crowd size, we’ll never know just how much of a colossal failure Farrakhan’s attempt was. However, based on the pictures, we can assure you it’s not even remotely close to the 400,000 that showed up in 1995. Numbers aside, the crazies were out in full force; Farrakhan, some so called, “Islamic Native Americans,” and even disgraced Pastor Jeremiah Wright, who was the talk of the town during the 2008 election. Rev. Wright decided to make even more idiotic statements at this event by claiming Palestinian’s are suffering just like Native Americans. His exact statement was as follows…
“The same issue is being fought today and has been fought since 1948, and historians are carried back to the 19th century – when the original people, the Palestinians – and please remember, Jesus was a Palestinian – the Palestinian people had the Europeans come and take their country,” Wright said.
He went on to claim that African American’s have a lot in common with the struggles of Palestinians in Israel ..
“The youth in Ferguson and the youth in Palestine have united together to remind us that the dots need to be connected,” Wright said. “And what Dr. King said, injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere, has implications for us as we stand beside our Palestinian brothers and sisters, who have been done one of the most egregious injustices in the 20th and 21st centuries.”
And just when you thought his outlandish statements knew no bounds, he continued by claiming Israel was an apartheid state…
“As we sit here, there is an apartheid wall being built twice the size of the Berlin Wall in height, keeping Palestinians off of illegally occupied territories, where the Europeans have claimed that land as their own,” Wright said.
He concluded by making what can only be described as a sad attempt to link the hate group Black Lives Matter to the Palestinians plight by saying, “Palestinians are saying ‘Palestinian lives matter.’ We stand with you, we support you, we say God bless you.”
Why Rev. Wright was even asked to speak at this event will befuddle most until you realize the entire event was mostly America haters who for some reason haven’t packed up and left. I guess we can only hope.
