In Presidential ‘Race,’ All “Whites Going To Hell” and Romney’s a “White Supremacist”

By
November 1, 2012

In the final week leading up to the election, the reverend who lead the prayer at President Obama’s inauguration ceremony declared that “all whites are going to Hell” and Julianne Malveaux, guest hosting on NPR’s Smiley & West radio program educated Americans about the “battered women syndrome” that women clearly must suffer from if they were swayed by Romney in the first Presidential debate. For good measure in support of the post-racial presidency, a guest on the show called Mitt Romney a “white supremacist.”

To wit, from The Daily Caller:

All white people are going to hell, longtime African-American civil rights advocate Rev. Joseph Lowery told an audience at a get-out-the-vote event held Oct. 27 in Georgia.

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,” according to an Oct. 31 report in the Monroe County Reporter newspaper.

“I don’t know what kind of a n—– wouldn’t vote with a black man running,” Lowery also told the audience in the St. James Baptist Church in Forsyth, Ga., according to the Reporter.

Perhaps having Reverend Jeremiah Wright would have been a safer gamble at the inaugural ceremony after all, what with all the chickens and roosting and whatnot.

And on Malveaux, from Warner Todd Huston at Publius Forum:

But that wasn’t the only nonsense disgorged by Malveaux during the show. She also claimed that Republican women suffer “battered women syndrome.”

[Malveaux:]  “One of the statistics that frightened me was that a number of white women after the first debate because they felt that Romney was strong and Obama was weak. So, I mean I’m out of order her, but I’m saying, do these women engage in battered women syndrome? Do you want a bully in your face? This man (Romney) who’s pushing his finger and acting like you know Robo-Man, is that what you prefer?”

It’s clearly a good time to be an Obama supporter.  There has been a persistent environment where every criticism of America’s first black president is dressed in manufactured charges of racism insured by a perceived sense of collective guilt or fear. The dripping racism from the actual words of  many Obama supporters require no leap of faith or imagination.

Clearly fading along with that Obama poster on the wall are the words in the history books where this one guy kind of famous said once something about a day when his children “will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

Have Dr. King’s words been reduced to simply a useful tool of a quote, often tossed around without thought to their meaning?

Presidential campaigns always get colorful in the final  week. Yet in the race for the presidency in 2012, the race of the candidates seems to be all that matters for too many. Not very colorful at all, actually. It’s as simple as black and white for some.

And that’s a sad, sad commentary for the state of our nation.

    I’m gonna give Lowery a pass. He made his bones as a civil rights leader when Jim Crow segregation was the order of the day. His conscience is seared with the worst that Southern whites could throw at him. And he’s now a very old man. It’s unfortunate that he’ll die with that hatred still in his heart. That alone is punishment enough.

      But Southern leaders were the ONLY reason the Civil Rights movement succeeded.

      Without support from business leaders in Southern cities, it would have taken much, much longer and cost a LOT more.

      Remember, Jim Crow was anti-market.

      • Concerned says:

        Yes, if not for all of the benevolent southern racists (like you) who pushed Jim Crow laws in the first place, Jim Crow would have never gone away. Funny.

        You know what else will be funny? Your facenext Wednesday morning. :)

        • Ragspierre says:

          You lie, troll.

          And your ignorance of history is only matched by your Collectivist dementia.

          • Concerned says:

            Haha, and the internet tradition of which you are unaware is affirmed again.

            Prove it.

          • Ragspierre says:

            Haha, I like you being the ignorant phuc you prove you are every time you come here.

            I also like you throwing around “raaaaccccist” lies in the face of the overtly racist acts of your Collective.

            Haha.

          • dean de loof says:

            if obama does not condemn this racist s.o.b. it will just show how racist HE is. why do people act like this. I am saved by grace. this man is NOT meaning he is going to hell. be a man obama and condemn this racist pig on national t.v. he won’t. who is racist?

    I give no such pass to Julianne Malveaux and her ilk.

    They’ve seen things get much better with their own eyes and ears over the last four decades.

    For them to continue these hateful rants against whites qua whites is racial bigotry of the first order.

    The Civil Rights Issue of our time is not trannies (pace Biden), it’s blacks giving up their deep racial bigotry against whites.

    Whether you’re black or white, judge Mitt Romney and Barack Obama both on the content of their character. Vote accordingly.
