YouTube videos published by Baton Rouge cop killer Gavin Eugene Long reportedly featured him talking about black liberation theology, which incidentally happens to be the same subject once taught by President Barack Obama’s former minister, Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
These videos have since been removed by YouTube, but according to investigative reporters at The Daily Caller, they showed killer Gavin Eugene Long, 29, ranting against “crackers,” making references to Alton Sterling and talking about black liberation theology.
“If you look at all the rebels like Black Panthers, Huey P. Newton, Malcolm X … Elijah Muhammad, they was light-skinned,” he reportedly said in one of his videos. “But we know how hard y’all got it.”
“If I’m peaceful protesting … I know they would try to arrest me, and I would die right there because you’re not going to kidnap me,” he said. “I know my rights, but I stand on my rights. That’s what separates me, that’s why they’re afraid of me.”
This brings us to President Obama, who according to The Washington Times belonged “to a church known to be a leader in a seemingly radical, black-centric, movement known as black liberation theology.”
Specifically, he belonged to Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Illinois, and the leader of that church was Rev. Jeremiah Wright, a man who espoused black liberation theology.
In a now-famous 2003 sermon, Wright charged that an ingrained, abiding racism in American society is at fault for many of the troubles African-Americans face, and he thundered, “No, no, no, not God bless America! God damn America — that’s in the Bible — for killing innocent people.”
You can hear the sermon in the video below:
In 2008 during his bid for the presidency, Obama reported rebuked these statements by Wright.
Yet, within these past seven years, it seems as if black liberation theology has suddenly made it to the forefront in American life and culture thanks to “Black Lives Matter” activists and Black Panther members who champion it.
Also on the rise have been cases of anti-white and anti-police crimes and acts of terror, such as those committed by Long, who murdered three cops in Baton Rouge on July 17.
