Black minister at 2008 inauguration says all Whites are going to hell

At the POS’s presidential inauguration on January 20, 2009, United Methodist Church minister Rev. Joseph Lowery gave the benediction.

On July 30, 2009, Obama bestowed the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award, on Lowery.

Called a “civil rights icon,” Lowery co-founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) with Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1957 and has been a national leader and the recipient of many honors since that time. Numerous celebrities had praised him at a celebration of his 90th birthday at Atlanta Symphony Hall last year.

Last Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012, Lowry spoke at St. James Baptist Church in Forsyth, Georgia, as part of a SCLC tour across the state to encourage blacks to vote for Obama (see pic below).

Diane Glidewell reports for the Monroe County Reporter, Oct. 31, 2012, that Lowry said he liked giving the benediction at Obama’s inauguration because it gave him the last word. The only thing that followed him on the program was the “Star Spangled Banner.” Lowry then said it was the first time in his life he enjoyed the national anthem and that he finds the anthem too militaristic. He said he would like to see the national anthem changed to “America the Beautiful or to “Lift Every Voice,” which is known as the Negro National Anthem.

Lowery complained that in 2008, 390,000 black folks in Georgia did not vote, and so Obama lost Georgia by 200,000 votes. He said: “I don’t know what kind of a n—– wouldn’t vote with a black man running. All that he [Obama] did with the stimulus was genius. Nobody intelligent would risk this country with Romney.”

Then Lowery said that “when he was a young militant, he used to say all white folks were going to hell.” Later he mellowed and just said most of them were. Now, he says “he is back to where he was” — meaning he’s back to saying all white folks are going to hell.

You never heard of this on the alphabet TV networks?

Imagine the media uproar if a white minister — or ANY white person — had said “all black folks are going to hell”….

Joseph Lowry then said “I’m frightened by the level of hatred and bitterness coming out in this election.”

Hey, you pretentious poor excuse of a Christian minister and rank RACIST. You want to see who’s spewing “hatred and bitterness”?

Look in your mirror.

Whatever hatred, bitterness, viciousness, and murderous venom are coming only from you and other Democrats. You may be able to bamboozle the complicit Establishment Media, but we on FOTM keep a good record of what your ilk have been saying and doing:

I can go on, but I think you get the idea….
