To Defenders of Jeremiah Wright

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

April 1, 2008 (EIRNS)—This statement was released today by the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee (LPAC).

Under the combined influence of Karl Rove and the kind of "Liberation Theologists" typified by the depraved Reverend Jeremiah Wright, a wave of cultural pessimism was spread among what had been that army of heroes who had formerly rallied behind the uniquely gifted leadership of the truly Reverend Martin Luther King. The name of this corruption promoted by Rove et al. was "Faith-based initiative." The slogan of those who deserted the cause back in the electoral year 2004 was, to my face (again and again): "We need that money." That is the moral corruption of those pulpits which preach the way of Jeremiah Wright today.

Where do these dupes of "Liberation Theology" con-men such as Wright stand on the British-led program of genocide against Africa today? Are they backers of London's genocide against Black Africa, as typified by the attack of the British planters on the liberation forces led by the President of Zimbabwe? Are they fighting against the mass-murderers of Africans, the British and those supporters of the British genocide against Africa supported presently by the George W. Bush government? In whose pockets, and under whose skirts do we find these so-called "Liberation Theologists," the "Elmer Gantrys" of today's zombie-like revival ceremonies, preachers who create more souls behind the tent than they save before the altars?
