He was the fiery Chicago pastor of a church that a young community organizer and state legislator named Barack Obama called home. During the 2008 presidential primary campaign, Rev. Jeremiah Wright became a flashpoint for his inflammatory sermons, in which he denounced America and decried alleged racism. The controversial nature of his remarks forced Obama to denounce the pastor.
Now, nearly six years later, Rev. Wright is back in the public eye, and he’s got a few things to say to President Obama. At a Chicago Teachers’ Union breakfast this morning in Chicago, Wright was captured on video comparing Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” to Obama as, “I have a drone.” Wright also took potshots at Secretary of Education Arnie Duncan.
TV cameras were banned from the speech, but CNN obtained footage from a cell phone camera that captured a portion of the remarks.
