Black pastor uses lynching photo to help get out the vote
By Andrew Mach, NBC News
6 days ago

A pastor in Indiana has put up a sign that uses a historical image of the 1930 lynching of two black teenagers in an effort to recharge the black vote.

**SNIP**

“I don’t think it is as harsh as the fact that when we talk about African-Americans being murdered and killed at an alarming rate,” Thornton said. “It’s not as harsh as the fact we make up about 12 percent of the population and about 90 percent of the incarceration. It is not as harsh as the drugs that we are being exploited within our communities.”

Thornton, who said he’s received two complaints about the sign since it was put up, has no plans to take it down “until the Lord says so.”

Black Pastors Say 'Stay Home' Election Day
Some black clergy see no good presidential choice between a Mormon candidate and one who supports gay marriage, so they are telling their flocks to stay home on Election Day.

“I don’t think it is as harsh as the fact that when we talk about African-Americans being murdered and killed at an alarming rate,

A rigorous enforcement of truth in advertising law would force this bigot to post script his sermon with factual data saying that the majority of the murders of which he speaks are, in fact, caused by other African-Americans...

So pastor, today it’s 99.9% of blacks killing other blacks. Anything to say about that? Naa, I didnt think so.

These idiots are living in the past same as the Muslims. These days the black on white crime rate amounts to a slow motion lynching. Rape for example is a black on white woman thing, rarely is it the other way around

White on black assaults murders rapes...minimal. Black on white rape, murder, assault is much more common

The last four years have been an abject lesson on why Africa is a continent ruled by bloodthirsty despotic dictators.

.......................................................
Hey Rev. Thats because 12 percent of the population is responsible for 90% of the crimes.

By the way are there white people coming to your communities selling that dope? If it is they should be easy to recognise and stop.

I kinda somehow think the dope is being sold to blacks by blacks.

And another thing Rev.How many young women in your congregation got knoced up last year and aborted their fetus? How many marriages are you performing in comparison to black babies being born? Is it true in your parish that 70% of black kids are born out of wedlock.

Take your black racist bigotry and stick it where the sun don’t shine fool.

Two things:

When did these lynchings occur? I'm guessing probably more than 70 or 80 years ago.

I think the odds of any lynching happening go up exponentially if 0bama's gang holds on to power.

Why do they ignore the fact that Blacks were great fans of our first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln, as well as Frederick Douglass?

And, that it was the Republican party who pushed for civil rights legislation, way before LBJ found it to be a great campaign issue.

And, that it was the Democratic party which liked poll taxes and worked hard to prevent Blacks from having any political involvement.

And, that it has been the Democratic party which has preserved the plantation mentality to keep Blacks in their places.

I think you mean “an object lession” - but “an abject lesson” is both correct and humorous!

It has indeed been abject!

Radical Black Panther Muzzie Andre’ Carson Congressman is in serious trouble in Indianapolis. He doesn’t get reelected if the inner-city Black Vote doesn’t show up in the same numbers they did in 2008, thanks to redistricting.

You are going to see the racism and racial hatred by the race-baiters ratcheted up to a fever pitch by election day, in a whole bunch of places.

In many places, it is now the Democrats only hope of getting reelected. Are we ready for it?

Stop doing 90% of the crimes that land you in jail and you’ll see the number of blacks in jail go down.

Stop blacks killing other blacks in record numbers and the black murder rate will go down.

Whitey ain’t the one killing blacks, pastor. It’s all you other blacks killing your own.

If you have a photo of a lynch mob the only Repubs in the photo, if there are any, would be the ones being lynched.

Blacks need more of Jesus! More praying and singing and less Gangster rap and drugs. Go back to church! Read your Bible!

Not being racist, but... Do the black dems even know that:

Lincoln was a Republican;
KKK was started by democrats;
NAACP was started by three white guys;
MLK was Republican; and
The Civil Rights Act was opposed by the democrats in ‘64; they filibustered it.

Someone’s gotta ask ‘em: “Who’s your daddy?”
