Wright and Manning: Similarities and Differences

Jeremiah Wright and David Manning: An interesting pair.  Jeremiah Wright is the racist, America-damning Black Liberation Theology pastor Obama sat under for 20 years.  David Manning is the pastor of a church best known for his rant predicting whites rising up and rioting in the streets.

Here are snippets of Jeremiah Wright’s now famous rants against America:

Now watch David Manning’s video HERE.

The contrast between the philosophies of these two men reminds me of a lesson in physics:  For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.  The same principle applies to social philosophy.

In Wright we have a black pastor who is unabashedly racist, dwelling on his condemnation of Europeans, whites, and America for all past sins.  Most of the theological distinctives of his church focus on themes* of…

  • Commitment to the Black Community
  • Commitment to the Black Family
  • Adherence to the Black Work Ethic
  • Disavowal of the Pursuit of "Middleclassness"
  • Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the Black Community
  • Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting Black Institutions
  • Pledge allegiance to all Black leadership who espouse and embrace the Black Value System
  • Personal commitment to embracement of the Black Value System."

Racist?  Oh yeah.  Imagine a church that used the word “White” instead of “Black.”  And “disavowal of middleclassness?”  What is that about?  Oh, its just the communist principle of a “classless” society.  All workers.  No middle class.  No elites.  No free enterprise.

In Manning we have a similar style of preaching by another black pastor, but the opposite and just as radical message.  By the way, “radical” isn’t necessarily wrong.  It is just not “main stream” or politically correct, at least at the moment.  In the Manning video, we see him playing the role of a prophet, proclaiming the whites have had enough of the Obama “Mack-Daddy” and predicting that there will be riots in the streets as a back-lash against decades of black affirmative action and resource- and initiative-robbing entitlements.  A big difference from Wright is that Manning agrees with those disgusted with the thieving entitlement mentality and would join whitey, in spirit if not in person.  He is not a racist as Wright is a racist.

It is interesting how the hyper-sensitive liberals are all bent out of shape over someone like Manning, but seem to have little problem, in fact, just love a President who sat for 20 years under a man like Jeremiah Wright and who obviously agrees with most if not all he preached during those 20 years. Manning is more likely to be stoned by the intolerant liberals than Wright is by the rest of us.  Manning has already been banned by YouTube.

I am becoming increasingly aware of the similarity in level of rabid intolerance among the left in this country and others, and the intolerance of the defenders and promoters of Islam toward free speech – the expression of of sometimes critical ideas and opinions.  Free speech should not be banned just because you disagree with it.  That is the test of true free speech.  The left and Islam are speaking from the same podium.  I can’t wait for liberals to discover exactly how un-liberal Islam is.  How quickly we will see their cum-by-Yah tolerance vaporize.

If you are curious, HERE are David Manning’s other videos form his website.
