Beware! Rahm is Angry
A “livid” Mayor Rahm Emanuel is refusing to speak with the owners of the Chicago Cubs after their father was linked to a $10 million plan to launch an ad campaign attacking President Barack Obama by airing the racially charged sermons of Obama’s former pastor.
The New York Times reported Thursday that Joe Ricketts, father of Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts, is working with high-profile Republican strategists through a new Super PAC, the Ending Spending Action Fund, on ads that would have featured the controversial sermons of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Trinity United Church of Christ on the South Side.
The Cubs desperately need Emanuel’s support as they attempt to get city and state help for a planned $300 million renovation of Wrigley Field.
“The Mayor was livid when he read that the Ricketts were going to launch a $10 million campaign against President Obama — with the type of racially motivated ads that are insulting to the president and the presidential campaign,” an Emanuel aide said. “He is also livid with their blatant hypocrisy.”
Racially motivated? How would that be? Obama, who can't help but remind everyone he is black all the time, attended a black church. Wow. That's really racial.
And he attended the church of America hater "reverend" Jerimiah Wright for how many years? Oh yeah, twenty. And never once did he stand up and object to Wright's anti-Americanism and hatred of white folks. Hmmmm.
