Obama’s inauguration reverend says anti-white slam was a joke

The Daily Caller

Longtime African-American civil rights advocate Rev. Joseph Lowery told The Daily Caller that he was joking when he told a get-out-the-vote event that all whites will go to hell.

“It was a joke” that was supposed to show the perspective of a young militant, Lowery told TheDC. “When I said it, I said it was a joke, I identified it as a joke.”

However, attendees at the African-American event Oct. 27 were reportedly horrified.

 

An Oct. 31 article in the Monroe County Reporter newspaper reports that Lowery, who gave the benediction at the January 2009 inauguration of President Barack Obama, told the audience of up to 300 African-Americans “that when he was a young militant, he used to say all white folks were going to hell. Then he mellowed and just said most of them were. Now, he said, he is back to where he was.”

    And if I stated all blacks identifying with Africa first by forcing us to call them African-Americans (prog speech codes) were to repatriate to their Mother Country, I’m just joking too.

    Lincoln was right — give ‘em 40 acres (in Africa) and a mule (any Democrat Jackass will do), and get these professional victim-slaves on the next boat out.

    Not Joking here — it will be way cheaper than another 50 years of an Affirmative Action, Great Society boondoggle. They can cry their victim tears someplace else — fresh out of any sympathy.

    Mr. Lowery should retire. He has done nothing worthwhile since the 1960s.

    The vote I cast for Romney(the very second I could early vote) was a joke, too. I’ll ‘splain it to ya after Tuesday, if you still don’t get it, rev.

    I’m a 100% Romney supporter–a conservative Republican. I recognize a vile joke when I hear it. There are those who say, according to orthodox Freudian psychoanalysis, that there’s no such thing, save from organic brain disease, an accidental slip of the tongue that truly wasn’t meant. So I think he meant it. Do I care? No. Consider the source.

    What bothers me more is the piling on against what seems to be all or most black Americans. Whenever I hear something stupid said by a Lowery, Wright, Sharpton, Jackson, etc., I immediately think about Allen West and the millions of other black American soldiers, airmen, cops, firefighters, first responders, etc., who are always watching our backs. I am a white right-leaning conservative and deeply, deeply appreciative of all of them, regardless of their skin color.

    I believe the ugliest thing in the world is ingratitude, and I think we approach that when we don’t recognize the good who exist in all groups, especially those protecting us.

    God bless.

    Regarding the douchebag ad that Team Zero was airing, I believe it was referred to as First Time.

    I know that post is a few days old but frankly I am too fucking tired from working all day to go back to it. This actually looks like a better place for it.

    How appropriate that ad is, for the generation of know nothing do nothings that were the intended targets. 2008 is just like the first time they were goaded into giving up some ass to an ape to prove that they are not prejudice/racist.

    And just because they were used for their only valuable commodity, and discarded shortly afterward like any thug rapper will attest to. Its not like the black men are the only ones waging a war against women, thats us honky republicans doing that shit too.

    They should show the girl in that ad signing up for welfare 10 months after with a little mutt and a question mark on the birth certificate where daddys name goes. Because that is exactly what happened once Obastard took his seat. Only it didnt just happen to her, we are the ones who were “burdened” with her choice.

    I am a realist, and a bigot. Just dont give a flying fuck.

    As for Rev Sambo above? Want proof that God hates niggers? He put pubes on their heads. Just kidding? Not one fucking bit.
