Pastor Joseph Lowery, a civil rights movement hero who delivered the benediction at President Obama’s inauguration, reportedly said that he is shocked that any black Americans would stay home with Obama on the ballot and suggested that all or most white people would go to hell. The local outlet paraphrases Lowery’s comments. “Lowery said that when he was a young militant, he used to say all white folks were going to hell,” the Monroe County Reporter (Ga.) says in covering a rally in Forsyth, Georgia. “Then he mellowed and just said most of them were. Now, he said, he is back
Comments: And the leftists are always accusing Republicans of being racist. I just want 0bama out of the White House.
This what our president and his wife believe. Of course, he also believes America will go to hell. Except for holders people. Let everyone you know their country needs them next week. Desperately. Vote this scum out.
This race pimp revrum has a street named for him in downtown Atlanta. Time to change the name back and restore Atlanta's historical street names. And strip his "church" of its tax exempt status. Further proof of Øbama's rage against Whitey. And proof of his unbroken string of associations w Revrum Wright-like creeps.
I'm confused. Does the racist pastor mean that all white people, as in completely white without a hint of black, brown, yellow, red, will go to hell? Or does he mean that all people who are white with any mixtures included will go to hell, for example, like Hussein-Obama? Based on what the racist pastor is saying, should there be a hell, I am convinced that is his future home.
If this isn't racist I don't know what is. Perhaps Joseph Lowery is suffering from just a tad of senility. He and others often remind us that they marched with Dr. King and supported Dr. King - I don't believe that Dr. King would approve of this type of racist ranting.
Back at the funeral of Coretta King, the Rev spent most of his eulogy taking shots at Dubya who was there. Not a huge fan of O'Reilly but I loved his line: who goes to a funeral dressed like a carnival barker? He just an old fool who is honest enough to admit he's a racist.
So, then he would be equally shocked by any white people who stay home and don't vote for Romney? That clinches it for me, I'm voting for the white guy. I was shocked to learn that many black people believe the USA population is about 50% black ! (It is 12%)
Ok. Fine. When we all get there, we'll clean it up, start small businesses, invent some primo air conditioning technology, extract water and fuel from the rocks, and before you know it, we'll be in heaven.
Meanwhile, heaven will be looted and trashed, the streets of gold will be ripped up and sold for crack, and before you know it, heaven will become a living hell.
If that is how this so-called "hero" of the civil rights movement thinks, then he is certainly no Christian and doesn't deserve to be a pastor either. What a racist ignorant fool!!! I am sick of the media calling any black person who marched for civil rights a "hero" of the movement. It takes more than mere participation and having a loud voice to be considered a "hero".
The liberal media's heads would explode if a white cardinal stood up and pronounced that all black people were headed to hell.
Obama gave Lowery a big time medal, so you have to figure that Obama feels the same way, only he does not know which half of himself will go through the pearly gates, and which half is headed for the devil's den.
Lowery is 91 years old and really should not be speaking in public. It is sad to hear him spouting such racist cant, even if it is at least in part the result of senility. This is not at all what MLK, Jr. had in mind. In fact, it is the very thing he was fighting against. More than one venerated black "civil rights leader" connected with Dr. King has traded shamelessly on his name while betraying his principles. The refusal of white liberals to challenge such scurrilous behavior, indeed their active support of it, is almost nauseating.
Rev. Lowery is an ordained minister of the Christian faith, but even men of the cloth can become separated from our Lord when they start worshipping people and things instead of our Creator and Redeemer. Same as #31, I regard Lowery's fall from grace with much sadness. I hope he hasn't lost his salvation. Politics can have this kind of effect on people.
Sorry, but Lowry has been racist longer than he has been a minister. He hasn't "lost his way"--he has always believed white people were going to hell. He was born lost...he should not be a minister and certainly is not a practicing Christian in my book.
Hmmmmmmmmmm Black ministers and civil rights icons out trying to pump out the black vote. Didn't Willie Brown say not too long ago that the Obama team was reaching out to black ministers and civil rights icons to help get out the black vote? And didn't Willie also say that Rev. Wright was one of the ministers that was contacted? And didn't the White House deny the conference call ever took place? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Keep spouting that racial garbage, Reverend Lowery. Every time you make another racist statement, you drive another reasonable person to vote for Romney. The ignorant are going to vote for Zero regardless what you say.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States.

DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Barack Obama delivered a statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela yesterday. During his speech he told about his first public speech on apartheid at Occidental College. “I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life. My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid. I studied his words and his writings.” But, Barack Obama forgot to mention that his speech at Occidental was sponsored by Marxists and Weatherman terrorists. Barack Obama’s first public speech was at an Occidental College event
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
