This is the statement by Dr. Wright that is being considered so "repugnant" by the MSM:
“The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God bless America’? No, no, no. Not God bless America. God Damn America.”
This statement doesn't bother me. I don't see what the big deal is here. Except that a black leader was angry at the government on TV.
