The Rev. Wright's REAL "Chickens Come Home to Roost" Sermon

~ A Demon Princess public service message ~

We should all know by now to beware of conservatives who twist, manipulate, and take everything out of context, shouldn't we?

You won't be surprised, then, to find that the real "chickens come home to roost" sermon wasn't anything like hate-filled rant first shown on Fox, then picked up by CNN, which played it, uncritically, over and over again until the entire country was induced to think that Reverend Wright is a madman. In fact, the "chickens come home to roost" was a comment made by a (white) ambassador to the Mideast.

The truth is, with respect to that particular speech, Wright is anything but a madman. Watch it yourself:

And here is the "God Damn America" speech in context (which would be more appropriately titled the "America confuses itself with God," and THAT'S what Wright damns speech):

Another basic truth about which we should be hypervigilant in the brave new post-Bushworld is that the right wing media will stop at nothing to destroy anyone/anything who threatens their carefully constructed, media-manipulated status quo. They're not about to go gracefully. Look for more of the same in the near future.
