I just love them whacky Reverends don’t you?

Well if anyone still didn’t think Rev. Wright was an idiot here is a beautiful quote by the man:

“Today. Is December 7. The day that this government killed. Over 80000. Japanese civilians. At Hiroshima in 1941. Two days before giving an additional. 64000. Japanese civilians. At Nagasaki by dropping nuclear bombs on innocent. People.”

December 7th?

Wait did he say December 7th? Am I the only one who paid attention in 3rd grade?

December 7th, 1941was the day the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor you twit!  The Atomic bombs Little Boy and Fat Man where dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6th and August 9th in 1945 respectively.  Both cities mind you had significant military importance to the Japanese Army and Navy and would have been legitimate military targets to the US Military during WWII.  Yes they are terrible weapons but they both killed less people then the conventional bombings over Tokyo.  It’s even less than the amount of civilians the Japanese killed in Nanking, after they took the city mind you.  I’m not going to get into an argument on if they should or should not have been used the atomic bombs right now all I will say is that it was a war.  Wars are terrible things and that’s why we try not to have them as much as we can.  So let’s get back to Wright.

The man was in the Marines you don’t really think he got the dates confused by accident do you? When a Marine walks out of boot camp he knows more about the history of the Corps and the US Navy then 95% of the collage history professors in America.  Marines know their history better then most people know their own names and they do not forget it.  Let’s face it Wright used the day of the bombing of Pearl Harbor to find an excuse to blast America even if he had to outright lie.  It’s not really that important I guess it’s not like Obama was a member of Wright’s church for 20 years or anything until it got politically expedient to distance himself from it.

  1. I wonder if being a part of Wright’s church was just a political move in itself. It probably helped him rise through the ranks a little faster in the Chicago political scene.

  2. I don’t wonder. I believe that it was a purely political move.

  3. what purely political never!

    Sorry I tried to lie but it isn’t working.
