The esteemed Rev. Jeremiah Wright, preaching this past Sunday:
Today. Is December 7. The day that this government killed. Over 80000. Japanese civilians. At Hiroshima in 1941. Two days before giving an additional. 64000. Japanese civilians. At Nagasaki by dropping nuclear bombs on innocent. People.
Wow, he never misses an opportunity to damn America, does he? Even when it’s inexcusably unwarranted.
UPDATE — A reader notes out that Wright’s remark is eerily reminiscent of another famous quote regarding this special occaision:
“Over? Did you say ‘over’? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!”
UPDATE II — Anoter reader notes that at the very least Wright, a former Marine, might remember Pearl Harbor as it has some significance for African American history.
