Reverend Wright Speech: King said, ‘I have a dream.’ Barack said, ‘I have a drone.”

President Barrack Obama’s former pastor Reverend Jeremiah Wright was invited to the Chicago Teachers Union to speak at their event.

Though still a supporter, according to a close associate, Wright took this as an opportunity to voice his disdain for the president. In the latest controversial Reverend Wright speech, the radical pastor said, “We need to teach the truth about our politicians, from Bush to Barack, because very clearly it is not about the person. It is about the policies of this government. King said, ‘I have a dream.’ Barack said, ‘I have a drone.”

The Chicago Teachers Union desires a more prominent voice amongst the political world, hence their decision in the controversial Reverend Jeremiah Wright in hope that he will rally up the clergy for the cause.

Wright disappeared off the radar after his daughter was charged with fraud and money laundering in April of 2013.

Although, the so-called pastor is known best for several videos that surfaced of him blaming the government for the creation of AIDS in order to kill African-Americans, yelling that the United States brought September 11 upon themselves, and the infamous “God damn America.”

CTU President Karen Lewis stated, “We just cannot have governance by the rich. We have to have people who understand working folk.”

Lewis expressed, “Martin Luther King was an extraordinarily controversial figure and Rev. Wright has been a huge acolyte of Dr. King’s vision, spreading the gospel of freedom and justice.”

Now the infamous reverend is back, union officials are reaching out for allies to advance their political activism and fight the shutting down of some neighborhood schools.

They are also determined to prevent the opening of charter schools that are publicly funded, privately managed, and non-union.

Ironically, sixteen academic studies have been published on charter school performance since 2010, four national studies and 12 regional studies from throughout the country.

Fifteen of the sixteen found that students in charter schools do better in school than their traditional school peers.

CTU apparently care more for themselves than the actual students that would benefit from charter schools.

The media was invited to CTU’s event, however when Fox News producer Griff Jenkins followed the reverend to ask questions he was held a bay by security.

Jenkins reported that Wright stated President Obama has a “kill” list he reviews every Tuesday and chooses who he is going to kill. 

Wright was invited in hopes that he would vocalize social justice themes as they prepare for a fight against Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Former Congressman Allen West expressed that Wright  is simply trying to make himself relevant by making outrageous comments. West added, “You’re dealing with a person who is completely irrational and he is a scorned woman.”

The Chicago Teachers Union are inconsistent, it is conveniently okay to have a “religious” man part of their cause — yet it is tabu to require the children of the school system pledge their allegiance to God.
