Skip to comments.Chris Rock Takes Jab At ‘Romney’s Crew’: Mormons Believed Black People Were The Devil
Posted on 06/09/2012 2:46:59 PM PDT by Colofornian
Chris Rock sat down with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday and, after brief acknowledgment of the impending zombie apocalypse, talked politics. Having already offered up his thoughts on our zebra president, Rock took this opportunity to discuss Mitt Romney and his religion.
Asked how he feels about whats going on in the world (particularly regarding Romney and President Obama), Rock replied, Whats going on? Okay, I just heard this the other day. The Mormons, Mitt Romneys crew, they believed black people were the devil until 1978. Im not making this up. Right, right, right?
Fallon and Rock joked abut having to look up Mormons black policies on Blackipedia...

1978 was when Mormons began changing racist policies -- but couldn't alter their "scriptures" on skin color-as-a-curse...tho they did alter one Book of Mormon verse in 1981 from "white and delightsome" to "pure and delightsome" (as if Joe Smith made some "error" there in 1830!
In his "Faith in America" speech on Dec. 6, 2007, he [Mitt Romney] said, "I believe in my Mormon faith and I endeavor to live by it. My faith is the faith of my fathers I will be true to them and to my beliefs."

So, key linkage #1 -- we know Mitt Romney stands by what his leaders -- his "fathers of the faith" have said.
What have they said kinda close to what Chris Rock was intimating?
Quote #1, from 3rd 'prophet' John Taylor, who followed Brigham Young: Why is it, in fact, that we should have a devil? Why did not the Lord kill him long ago? Because he could not do without him. He needed the devil and a great many of those who do his bidding just to keep men straight, that we may learn to place our dependence upon God, and trust in Him, and to observe his laws and keep his commandments. When he destroyed the inhabitants of the ante-diluvian world, he suffered a descendant of Cain to come through the flood in order that he might be properly represented upon the earth."
NOTE: Mormon leaders taught that blacks had the "mark of Cain" as a curse. Brigham Young taught it. 'Prophet' Joseph Fielding Smith taught it. 11th 'prophet' Harold B. Lee taught it. Many Lds 'apostles' taught it.
Quote #2, from 10th 'prophet' Joseph Fielding Smith: NO NEUTRALS IN HEAVEN. There were no neutrals in the war in heaven. All took sides either with Christ or with Satan. Every man had his agency there, and men receive rewards here based upon their actions there, just as they will receive rewards hereafter for deeds done in the body. The Negro, evidently, is receiving the reward he merits" (Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation, 1:61)
Quote #3, from Lds rep John Lund: Question: Were Negroes neutral in the great war in heaven (Rev. 12:7) and therfore denied the Priesthood during morality; Answer: No. There were no neutrals in the war in heaven. An individual was either on the side of Christ or the side of Lucifer...The Negroes were not neutral; they were sufficiently valient to be promised the Priesthood, if worthy, after their mortal existence" (John Lewis Lund, The Church and the Negro, 1967, p. 103)
This won’t go far, I thought at one time the old media would pound this at Romney, but I think the libs who actually run the left realize they want to keep the black race cult way, far away from the center of the election.
Well, no single comment usually "goes far"...
(It's more "death by 1,000 cuts")
And pertinent with more voters representing other races -- Hispanics and mixed-race individuals, for example.
Who cares what Chris Rock has to say - I don’t
HA HA HA HA!
eh, not sure the race card really matters in this race. The two groups most effected by it are 1. blacks and 2. guilty whites who are hypersensitive to racism.
well over 90% of blacks are going to vote for Obama regardless of if he showed up on America’s Got Talent and sang “mammy”, and I’d say the number is probably pretty close to that for the type of white people who are constantly worried about racial offensiveness. Just dont see this being a big issue to switch people who aren’t inclined to vote for obama overwhelmingly already.
Not a single Republican.
90% of blacks vote for the Rat, no matter who it is.
Obama had the younger voters in '08. It'll continue to matter to voters 18 to about mid-to-late 30s -- (those who were in high school when multi-culturalism had been fully implemented in many/most high schools).
you are a fool and so are the rest of the illiterates that do not know the english language.
“white and delightsome”
one hundred years ago the word “white” was an adjective meaning unblemished or pure and also pertaining to goodness. It wasn’t just a color back then.
the exposure begins
My favorite example...Marion Berry. Got caught smoking crack with a hooker. Then he gets re-elected.
Hell, this is what Louis Farrakhan and Malik Zulu Shabazz said about white people last month. The response from Obama and crew... chirp... chirp... chirp...
YI’m sure all those race hustlers and the MSM/Dem party care loads about 19th century English usage and definition. They’ll jump right out and clarify it for Mitt, I’m sure.
He also said there would never be a black President —how nice that we now have one.
Why does he constantly feel he needs to affirm his black hip-hop credentials? Because he came from an ULTRA steady, middle-class background.
His ONLY claim on “being real” (from a ‘yute perspective) is that he IS from Bed-Stuy —where do you think he cooked up the material for the movie, “CB4”...?
First thing that happened to this softy when he visited his hood? He got ROBBED —literally, I mean.
This latest is just more, “look, I really AM black...!”
Kwame Kilpatrick is another good one.
It makes the task of integrating all people as a single American people far more difficult when you have socialist agents sowing the seeds of racial hatred and discontent. Rock, whether or not he's too stupid to realize it, is a foul tool, a useful idiot of the left.
Forgot about that one...good call.
