-- things it's it's incendiary and then it raises in my mind who's the real Barack Obama he said.
That I had no idea none whatsoever that Jeremiah Wright -- -- -- his twenty years he is like family to me.
And even his -- in the speech -- the timing of this is interesting because I -- interviewed on hand any columns.
I interview -- right we got into a big battle about black liberation theology that was in march of 2007.
Right it'd been disinvited.
To be to give the invocation at his announcement he's running for president just a couple months early right.
So right is there this is June now of 2007 so -- as a ready controversial figure here.
Now it's interesting as as this whole thing goes on -- has to give this big speech in Philly on race.
So I decided we put the two speeches together and we'll take a look at -- we'll take a look at the other in other words this is what the media didn't report on this what the media didn't say.
Very controversial things.
By a Barack Obama that was never reported on.
Verses the big speech which I believe was done at a political expediency well let our audience decide what's -- side by side.
I'm gonna be really dragging it out.
-- not happening.
The guy who.
Put up for me.
-- Good group tomorrow why complain about.
You can -- And a great leader everybody.
Welcome to my parents are not Jeremiah Wright yeah.
-- -- to conduct.
In unequivocal terms.
The statements of Reverend Wright would have caused such controversy.
And in some cases -- For some nagging questions remain.
That I know him to be an occasionally fierce critic of American domestic and foreign policy and of course.
And it recognize.
In Florida -- People could look at that -- yeah.
We don't expect you to come up with a no money this.
But not a normal.
Well your dollar and what did I -- -- modern.
Don't read about -- haven't been taken out.
They've come out the people of -- and -- Robert Wright's comments were not only wrong up.
But the best of the missive at a time when we need unity.
Racially charged at a time when we need to come together to solve a set of monumental problems problems that are -- Neither black or white or Latino or Asian but rather problems.
That confront us all.
Who's -- real Barack Obama talker.
-- very -- are usually very.
That's -- people.
But this -- -- different language different cadences different accents different gestures I mean the false news here is overwhelming.
And I would say that whether he was putting on a southern accent -- an Asian accent it doesn't matter he is playing a role in one of these cases.
It's not clear what's when I I assume in the -- -- he's he's putting on persona he doesn't normally occupied.
To pander to the crowd but who -- either way.
You are seeing a remarkable exhibit of false that's on display there's no other explanation they don't -- -- where I would say this about any politician.
Well I look I go back to Al Gore -- -- about him he went before predominately African American audience he went into Al Gore preacher mode mode.
And Republicans on the wrong is that enough for African America they don't want -- tell you the sense -- I mean it was it takes your breath away Hillary did the same thing yourself.
But we've got -- -- got the accent we've got anger we got -- they don't care as much about you all saw.
We don't need to get a -- just -- on -- not to our neighborhoods.
What was so.
What are what are you conclude.
Look I conclude that this well I'm not exactly sure is the truth I'm not god I can't read.
Obama is minder looked into his soul but I it seems to me this is a case.
The extreme pandering he is talking to an audience in a way he thinks resonates with them but he's also using fear to motivate them again.
The core of this speech very simple message the federal government doesn't like you because you're black imagine telling people that imagine trying to make them.
More fearful more paranoid more hurt.
That's a truly divisive and sick thing to do and it's on display in this video this is not one red -- opinion we're posting the entire video on the daily caller and you -- watch -- is our horse forty minute video posted the whole forty minute agreement and we -- every aspect Porsche because we we will be relentlessly attacked -- to -- when people say.
This is already been reported well actually it hasn't been reported.
And I know because I reporter out of the first time.
And second we will be accused of clipping this too.
Our aunts and so where does that put the whole thing out there -- people can judge but the first thing we'll jump off.
The screen at you is this is not the Barack Obama you've watched for the past eight years if you've been paying attention and this guys whipping up race hatred fear -- is it.
Is it written it would you -- how would you classify the comments racial.
Is that the best way isn't of course I'm Rachel -- of course I I absolutely wonderful white politician that happened from a white audience and said.
Here's what she should know about black people they don't like you.
Very charge and -- -- being -- and they're getting a better profiting from your suffering what would you say that is that is racial rhetoric designed to make people fearful.
-- -- -- what he says about black churches in this speech and again the whole video is up on the daily caller if you want take a look at.
The forty minute speech remember the media only at the time put up what -- -- was -- nine or ten minutes that they reported on.
It was a little less than it's a little less than ten little bit less than ten minutes all right here's more of that speech that was never seen before.
I -- company traded we've been told that all that mattered little what the -- Evangelicals.
Don't be talking to mainland Protestant.
But dirt and got -- from from the -- As sort -- about it Trinity United Church of Christ because we're talking about black people in Turkey.
I'll -- my beer producer.
Let me -- you got to work product simpler.
-- -- -- -- -- let me play that through this prism and that's when I interviewed in the remember Reverend Wright he was in the audience this is June.
-- -- he was disinvited.
From the it from -- the invocation.
When Obama announced he's running for president came on my show two months later this was the last -- that Reverend Wright did.
Hear what he said about what black liberation theology and you know what he goes on to say in that particular clip there because we talk about black people in church it was my exchange Reverend Wright.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Commitment to the black community commitment to the black family adherence to the black work ethic the reverend.
If every time we said black -- there was a church.
And those words were white.
When we call it church racist.
You know we have -- christianity we've been saying that since -- was very.
Why christianity would -- saying that have a sense white Christians to pardon slave trade we've been saying that ever since they had.
Churches in slave castles we have to have to say the word white.
We just have to live in white American ministries of white American.
I'm gonna ask you this question how many what do you look right Hopkins have you were very angry and defensive on this trying to ask a question here -- I'm Barack Obama goes your corner you -- an Obama goes here you haven't answered -- and use it seems to be when you say.
The black community black he had heard laughing and -- for you I visited it seems it just -- -- -- this is our our our ignorance there I'm asking you.
Have you heard me how many balls are right I gotta say this whether you like it or not I'm gonna eat my words and and I want to tell you right now.
I'm not about liking.
I -- -- -- -- -- sir how -- -- -- -- Christian you should not separate by race in this day and age and that's why a lot of people a little look at that say.
We're all we're all supposed to be united under their prices are way.
And goes in the black liberation theology we -- -- and with the might of the one other interview that he did after that but I don't remember which one but black liberation theology.
You know the black community the black -- the black -- and I'm asking him about -- praising him here but any of this other speech.
And -- he just say those words in Philadelphia to make the controversy go away what does he believe.
Well let me just -- -- believe that Jeremiah Wright married Michelle and Barack that's for twenty years ago tomorrow I believe that was their -- tomorrow -- Look -- -- my personal feeling is that he speaks to each audience what he thinks that audience wants to hear but let me say -- totally disingenuous it is for Obama to claim.
This Jeremiah Wright was attacked for talking about black people in church that's utterly false I reporter on this too at the time.
People had very specific concerns about the nature of black liberation theology wasn't talking about black people in church.
That to say something like that before this audience is again to reinforce the point.
That the rest the world doesn't like you because of your skin color.
This makes people more fearful more afraid more parent and by the way more cut off from the rest of America this is the opposite of what -- uniter does this is what a demagogue -- -- and it's wrong.
Will be interested to see if anybody in the media follows up and has the courage to ask about these things member during the 2008 on hold your breath.
2000 election cycle is at one time about bill layers.
Any just got a guy he started his political career in his house gave speeches -- -- -- -- -- boards with.
He just the guy in the neighborhood acted like you barely know and he's still got -- -- that will follow up Tucker thank you the full forty minutes on the daily caller and.
