When I heard that the Rev. Jeremiah Wright said “them jews” wouldn’t let him talk to the president, I thought he wasn’t actually referring to Jews as a whole, but rather to guys like Rahm Emmanuel and David Axelrod, who do control in part people’s access to the president.
Well, as it turns out, it is a conspiracy theory about all (or most) Jews: he’s revised his comments to let us know he meant “Zionists.” Good to know.
As a side point, what would you do if your former cleric were taking every opportunity to criticize you and your decisions? There seems to be a remarkable restraint on the president’s part. And if Wright keeps it up, there should probably come a point where the media begin to treat him as any random cleric critical of Obama, which is to say, without much attention.
