Jeremiah Wright: ‘Ferguson and Palestine have united’
The Hill calls him a “controversial religious leader,” although we like to think of Jeremiah Wright as that guy whose photo suddenly disappeared from Barack Obama’s campaign website when the audio from one of his sermons was leaked.
Apparently Louis Farrakhan’s#JusticeOrElse rally wouldn’t have been complete without his input. In today’s sermon, Wright askedthe crowd to please remember that “Jesus was a Palestinian the Palestinian people had the Europeans come and take their country.”
Wright also theorized that “the youth in Ferguson and the youth in Palestine have united together to remind us that the dots need to be connected. And what Dr. King said, injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere, has implications for us as we stand beside our Palestinian brothers and sisters, who have been done one of the most egregious injustices in the 20th and 21st centuries.”
The fine folks atLegal Insurrection have posted Wright’s comments to YouTube.
