Why hasn't President Obama talked to his old pastor, Jeremiah Wright, since the presidential campaign? Wright himself has an explanation: the Jews.
Here's what he told Virginia's Daily Press yesterday (audio clip above):
Them Jews ain't going to let him talk to me .... He's got to do what politicians do. And the Jewish vote, the AIPAC vote that's controlling him, that will not let him send representation to the Darfur Review Conference, that's talking this craziness on Israel because they're Zionists, they will not let him talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is. Ethnic cleansing is going on in Gaza—the ethnic cleansing of the Zionists is a sin and a crime against humanity.
How remarkable that Wright absolves himself and the president of responsibility for the breakdown in their relationship and turns it into Jewish conspiracy. And on the same day of the deadly Holocaust Museum shooting, no less.
