Rev. Wright Slams Fox News, O'Reilly

Sunday, 13 Apr 2008 09:57 PM

This weekend, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright made his first comments since his public sermons made national headlines.

He came out swinging, once again attacking the United States for racism. He also singled out Fox News for criticism.

Speaking Saturday at a eulogy for former appellate Judge R. Eugene Pincham, a member of Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ, Wright blamed the Founding Fathers for the woes of blacks today, claiming they “planted slavery and white supremacy in the DNA of this republic.”

Wright cited Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who recently said the country has a “congenital birth defect” owing to its constitutional acceptance of slavery.

Wright also described Thomas Jefferson as having engaged in “pedophilia.”

But his most heated comments were targeted at Fox News, which he called "Fix News."

“Fox News can’t understand that,” Wright exclaimed. “[Bill] O’Reilly will never get that. Sean Hannity’s stupid fantasy will keep him forever stuck on stupid when it comes to comprehending how you can love a brother who does not believe what you believe. [Pincham’s] faith was a faith in a God who loved the whole world not just one country or one creed.”

Presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama, a member of Wright's church, has distanced himself from some of Wright's comments but refuses to condemn his former pastor or resign from the church.
