And Now I Get a Tad Political

So we all know a little bit about Jeremiah Wright and his crazy comments including the assertion that the United States brought on the 9/11 attacks with its own "terrorism." He has made statements suggesting that the US government created AIDS.

More quote ables from Wright
"The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No, no, no, God damn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people," he said in a 2003 sermon. "God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme."

Today at the National Press Club he stated lied that his words were taken out of context. You can listen to the speech here .

You can listen to his ideals about whites suppressing the black community, inventing AIDS and WMD's here.

Today he was given the opportunity to defend his words, and he said that this was not about himself, or Barack Obama but it was an attack by the media and America against black churches.

Any thoughts on this?
