Welcome Back Wright! He's baaaaack. The infamous "chickens have come home to roost" reverend that hosted the Obama's in his church for over twenty years has resurfaced. Same hate-filled speech, but this time he even mentions Sean! Sean, who is not bashful when it comes to his concerns on the relationship Obama held with the Reverend discussed this speech on last night's 'Hannity.' Sean proposes his theory that Obama has not been honest with the American people.
That Obama's true beliefs are actually much more in sync with the Reverend than he admits or lets on. As you can see in this short four minute speech, his opinions and hatred is clear. How could it be that a man as smart as Obama was unaware of the radical beliefs of this man after 20 years of sitting in the pews of his church?
Sean concludes the likelihood is that Obama, as is the case with Wright, has beliefs and values deeply rooted in socialism and marxism and begs the question has Obama known all along who the real Wright is? Perhaps we the American people will never know the truth, and will only have to trust our instincts.
Read Sean's interview with Reverend Jeremiah Wright during the '08 Presidential Elections:
This is a partial transcript from "Hannity & Colmes," March 1, 2007, that has been edited for clarity.
SEAN HANNITY, CO-HOST: Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has been inundated with coverage about his Mormon faith, LDS. In light of this, last night we reported on the controversial teachings of Democratic candidate Barack Obama's Chicago-based church. A guest on our program likened Trinity Unity Church of Christ to a separatist movement, drawing comparisons to Branch Davidians.
Joining us now for a response to these claims from Trinity United is the Reverend Dr. Jeremiah Wright.
Reverend, welcome to the program. Thank you for being with us.
REV. DR. JEREMIAH WRIGHT, TRINITY UNITY CHURCH OF CHRIST: Thank you for having me.
HANNITY: OK, this is the same church. You do have the Web site, right, where it says commitment to the black community, commitment to the black...
WRIGHT: The black value system, which was developed by the congregation, by laypersons of the congregation, 26 years ago, very similar to the gospel (INAUDIBLE) developed by laypersons in Nicaragua during the whole liberation theology movement, 26, 28, 30 years ago, yes.
HANNITY: All right, but we're not dealing with — this is on the Web site today. Let me just inform our audience, and I want you to respond, if you can.
It says, "Commitment to God." By the way, I'm with you, and I hope you'll pray for me, Reverend. Commitment to the black community, commitment to the black family, adherence to the black work ethic. It goes on, pledge, you know, acquired skills available to the black community, strengthening and supporting black institutions, pledging allegiance to all black leadership who have embraced the black value system, personal commitment to the embracement of the black value system.
Now, Reverend, if every time we said black, if there was a church and those words were white, wouldn't we call that church racist?
WRIGHT: No, we would call it Christianity. We've been saying that since there was a white Christianity; we've been saying that ever since white Christians took part in the slave trade; we've been saying that ever since they had churches in slave castles.
We don't have to say the word "white." We just have to live in white America, the United States of white America. That's not the issue; you're missing the issue.
As I was trying to say to you, liberation theology — and I thought Eric Rush has studied at a theological seminary that was conservative — I've come to find out he doesn't know anything more about theology than I know about brain surgery.
HANNITY: So here's my point to you, though.
WRIGHT: No, let me finish. No, here's my point to you.
HANNITY: I'm waiting.
WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the ‘60s, (INAUDIBLE) black liberation theology, that started with Jim Cone in 1968, and the writings of Cone, and the writings of Dwight Hopkins, and the writings of womanist theologians, and Asian theologians, and Hispanic theologians...
HANNITY: Reverend, I've got to get this in.
WRIGHT: Then you can talk about the black value system.
HANNITY: I'm going to tell you this. Listen...
WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir? Do you know liberation theology?
HANNITY: I studied theology; I went to a seminary. And I studied Latin.
WRIGHT: Do you know black liberation theology?
HANNITY: I'm very aware of what you're calling black liberation, but let me get my question out.
WRIGHT: I said, do you know black theology?
HANNITY: Reverend, I'm going to give you a chance to answer my question.
WRIGHT: How many of Cone's books have you read? How many of Cone's book have you read?
HANNITY: Reverend, Reverend?
WRIGHT: How many books of Cone's have you head?
HANNITY: I'm going to ask you this question...
WRIGHT: How many books of Dwight Hopkins have you read?
HANNITY: You're very angry and defensive. I'm just trying to ask a question here.
WRIGHT: You haven't answered — you haven't answered my question.
HANNITY: And it seems to be, when you say the black community, black family, black
work ethic, black community...
WRIGHT: It seems arrogant, ignorant...
WRIGHT: I'm asking you...
WRIGHT: ... how many books of Dwight Hopkins have you read?
HANNITY: Sir, I'm going to say this whether you like it or not. I'm going to get my words in, and I'm going to tell you right now...
HANNITY: As a Christian, sir, I think, as a Christian, you should not separate by race in this day and age. And that's why a lot of people are going to look at that and say, "We're all supposed to be united under Christ, aren't we?"
