Former Pastor Jeremiah Wright is not a racist, he's not anti-American or a bigot according to those that know him.

Catholic priest, Michael Pfleger, is the latest person to speak out in defense of the reverand following the firestorm of controversy generated by mainstream media. Pfleger speaks of the double standard in media coverage based on race, and racial injustices that still exist today in America. A couple of things here are worth noting:



Fox edited this half hour video into a two or three second sound bite, to make it seem like the Priest was raving.


This was on Bill O'Reilly, of course. And of course he brought a couple of selected Catholic bobble-heads along with him as "experts" to condemn this guy and Wright. Actually the first bobble-head tries to present a more authentic Christian view, along the lines of "love the sinner, hate the sin." Whereupon Bill squeals, "That's a *Liberal* view! I believe that people must be held *accountable*!"

A couple of things here are worth noting:

- 9/11 sermon by pastor Wright (yes, Fox News LIED about this, see it in context).

...- Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was also critical of US government policy (the Vietnam War), social injustice and racism in America. At times he was demonized by media in his time as an anti-American communist, an evil hypocrit, and a demagogue.

- Neither Bill O'reilly, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Karl Rove or Glenn Beck has ever enlisted in US military service. But they've all slammed Rev. Jeremiah Wright as a hater of America. Reverand Wright did serve in the military as a marine, not long after integration of the military. Wright also attended to former President Lydon B. Johnson, and was a guest of Bill Clinton in the White House.
