Jeremiah Wright endorses ‘March to Jerusalem’
The Rev. Jeremiah Wright sure knows how to stop people from forgetting him.
You might remember Wright as a source of much controversy for Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential campaign. Then Wright returned to his old church and ranted against the media—then he took aim at “them Jews.”
Now he’s back. Sort of.
Wright, notorious for “God Damn America,” has endorsed the March to Jerusalem, which Arutz Sheva reports as seeking to end “Judaization” of Jerusalem. The ADL is not the only group to note the march’s anti-Semitic overtones.
Arutz Sheva reports:
I’m not clear on why Obama would need to comment on Wright’s activities. The National Conference of Jewish Affairs mischaracterizes the president’s relationship with Wright. I have no idea whether Obama is still in contact with him, but Obama long ago left Trinity and Wright isn’t the pastor there anymore.
