Black folks cozying to GOP: Frist killed on-record lynch vote
Protecting his bigoted brethren from having to go on the record. How’s that 2008 presidential bid shaping up for you, Bill?
(via Raw Story)
All you pious black pastors shuffling and jiving for Chimpy, Ken Mehlman, and sucking up to the rest of the AmTaliban, how does it feel to find out that equally pious Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist repeatedly refused to have an on-the-record vote on the apology for the Senate failing to pass anti-lynching laws?
Even worse, in a typical butt-covering manuever, his staff tried to blame the SPONSORS, Senators Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and George Allen (R-Va.), claiming they only wanted a voice vote, which they deny. [They have no reason to lie about this, so it really makes Bob Stevenson, Frist’s chief spokesman, look like a dumb*ss.]
What a pack of f*cking liars you get in bed with, my bought-off colored men of the cloth, all cozy and happy with the Reich these days because you hate the homos. If I were you, I’d stay away from ropes and trees when you’re hanging with this crowd…look who’s sleeping with the enemy —
Televangelist Frederick K.C. Price of L.A.’s Crenshaw Christian Center backs Bush and is took part in a 100-minister summit opposing same-sex civil marriage; Bishop Harry R. Jackson Jr. (Mr. Contract w/Black America) has gotten into political bed with Ken Mehlman.
Bishop Sedgwick Daniels of Milwaukee’s Holy Redeemer Church of God in Christ buys into Bush’s faith-based initiatives and “values;” homophobe Rev. Dwight McKissic, pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Arlington, TX is on board with the Bush American Taliban agenda.
* Philadelphia’s Rev. Herb Lusk, pastor of the Greater Exodus Baptist Church has had his coffers filled with a cool million to run faith-based initiatives by the Administration; and last (and most disappointing), Walter Fauntroy, key lieutenant to Martin Luther King and pastor of the New Bethel Baptist Church, who held a much-covered press conference with Bill Frist and Rick Santorum in support of the Federal Marriage Amendment.
See a recent entry on Frist and these fools: F*cking shameless – Frist tap dances to get black pastor support.
