Obama’s Inauguration Reverend: All Whites Are Going to Hell

Neil Munro, Daily Caller, October 31, 2012

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.

“He was saying [that] based on all of the hatred that’s going on” towards President Barack Obama, Helen Butler, the executive director of Lowery’s Georgia-based Coalition for the People’s Agenda, told The Daily Caller.

“He just fell that he should feel the way he used to feel,” Butler, who attended the rally, explained.

“Of course he doesn’t believe that all whites should go to hell,” she added.

“That’s not him—he’s a very caring person.”

“He was trying to get people motivated to ensure they go and vote…. [and] he did make the point that there is a lot of hatred in this country,” she said.

“It was a joke” told via the perspective of a young militant, Lowery told TheDC. “When I said it, I said it was a joke, I identified it as a joke,” he said.

However, the article also quotes Forsyth Mayor John Howard saying he was “pretty shocked” by Lowery’s comments.


When asked by TheDC about the other notable comment—“what kind of a n—- wouldn’t vote with a black man running”—Lowery said he did not remember making that statement.

“I never said that, I don’t remember saying that,” he told TheDC.

Lowery’s n-word comment was not a discriminatory comment or an appeal to racial solidarity, Butler told TheDC. “He’s not saying you should support the black guy because of his race, he’s saying you should support a competent black person,” she said. “If all else is equal, why not vote for your race?”

When asked why polls show up to 95 percent support for Obama among African-Americans despite their tough economic circumstances over the last 10 years, Lowery said, “I’d like to see it 99” percent.


Lowery is major figure in Democratic politics. He was born in 1921 and is called a “civil rights icon” because he co-founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference with Rev. Martin Luther King and ran it for 20 years, from 1977 to 1997.

    Don’t worry, this guy won’t be speaking at his inaugurtion if Obama is reelected.

  • Puggg

    If all white people are going to hell, it will be the only hell black people try to get into.

    •  I’ve often thought that ALL White people should just up and announce that we are going to go live in volcanoes and blacks are NOT allowed.  They would break their necks trying to jump into the volcanoes with all the White people.

    • Detroit_WASP

      Some white people are in hell.  But, we just call it Detroit.

  • Enrichment Zone Warning

    This voodoo Diversity priest is lying.  Ever since Brown v. Board, we’ve been in Hell, and we get pushed down into the deeper circles every day. 

    Dante will need to come back and give us a do over of his Inferno, now that we have more “evidence”.But really, let’s hope Lowery lives long and keeps on talking, just like we begged Jesse Jackson to “please, Jesse, never stop talking” when he was down in New Orleans blaming White racism for the suffering of his people.When it comes to raising White awareness, the blacks do it better than we ever can.

    Thank you sweet White Christ for the open (currently) Internet.  May we use it to your honor and glory while we can.

  • “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.”

    This message is endorsed by barrack hussein obama.

    • Enrichment Zone Warning

      The Atlanta Fox5 station interviewd the White woman who wrote the original article. She said he didn’t say it as a joke, and thankfully she looked justifiably pained, as though she were finally realizing the truth about Diversity and its eternal war against White privilege.

      The reporter pointed out that the actual quote was buried toward the end of the article, because she didn’t want to foster controversy.

      Then high yallar Andrew Young was on saying it was just a joke. News conference tomorrow at 11 am, and we’ll here Lowery say all the expected puff to make the story go away, and it WILL go away.

      Shammity did a piece on it, and instead of having suffering Whites on to say how it made them feel, he has a couple of conservative blacks on who said all the right things that we would like to hear. But they were black, so you were supposed to think that most blacks are safe and just like you.

      BUT DID YOU SEE THE GLEN BECK special tonight, The Machine? Wow!!! They really hit the racialization of the voting fraud very hard. No White person who saw it could at all possibly feel safe in America any longer.

      Glen Beck’s network was on our side tonight, so he’ll probably do a special tomorrow on how his esteem for St. MLK grows stronger every day, thanks to Mormon Romney crying when he heard that his cult wasn’t racist anymore.

      FOLKS, CAN’T YOU FEEL IT? We really will see the horrors in our lifetimes, after which nothing will ever be the same.

      How did we get pushed so fast in that directions? Think back to when everything changed and only started getting worse for us and faster. Sept. 11, 2001. That Muslim attack set in motion all that came next, and then we go Obama, and Holder, and now we move toward Nov. 6 and it will be hellish thereafter, no matter who wins.

      With Romney, we will still watch America crash, but we’ll have to blame it on Whitey. Romney will never overturn Affirmative Action and return us to freedom, he will give Amnesty, and he will keep the Muslim Brotherhood close at hand as a gesture of peace.

      THE HORROR, THE HORROR. Get used to it now…

    “Obama’s Inauguration Reverend: All Whites Are Going to Hell.

    “Just a joke, of course.”

    Yes, of course it was. Just like the Black Panthers saying they were going to kill all the crackers, pink people and their blond-haired, blue-eyed babies.”  That was a joke too, of course, and many of us have never stopped laughing.

    We laugh also at Farrakhan every time he denounces his hatred of whites, encouraging the black masses to kill, rob, main, murder, mob attack and rape, just as Jermiah Wright, Al, Jesse, Michael Dyson, Tavist Smiley, and all the black leaders and black talking heads on t.v. do frequently, some of which occurs on MSNBC every night.   

    But, of course, that’s all just a joke too.  And we’re expected to laugh good naturedly, just as those in the press do.

    And anybody who doesn’t laugh is a racist hater and a right wing nut case, right along with having a white supremacist agenda.

  • “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.

     And I do not know what kind of White could vote for this White hating racist!

    • Sherman_McCoy

      I would guess that a n—— that doesn’t vote for Obama, wait I would have to change that, who votes for someone else fails the n—– test, and might actually be a decent neighbor.

  • Michael C.Scott

    Since Lowery obviously hates whites, perhaps he should consider moving to a country where there aren’t any.  Last I checked, there are quite a few countries that don’t have any whites.

  • StillModerated

     St. James Baptist Church in Forsyth, Ga. needs to get its tax exempt status revoked.

    “Lowery said he did not remember making that statement.”  Of course he didn’t remember because he’d just smoked a fat spliff and downed an entire fifth of Courvoisier.

  • Zqrxpad

    Ha – “civil rights icons”! Allow me the pleasure to translate that:  blacks who have ridden the “raciss” gravey train their entire lives and really have no real accomplishments to speak of! In a sane world, this “Rev.” Lowery would be just another invisible black cook or janitor. That this ‘thug with a cross’ gets a national audience speaks volumns of how far down we’ve fallen – not only as country, but also as a people.
    Sean Hannity was talking about this on his show today. He was full of praise for Lowery and said he knew him well and believed he was “just joking”! He also added ( this is priceless folks ) “he’s NEVER said those things whenever I was around him!” I wonder how much ‘forgiveness’ blacks would give him if he said all blacks are going to hell! After Obama won Hannity also made the brilliant statement that “blacks ONLY voted for Obama because he’s a Democrat –  they always vote Democrat!” He’s also always carefull to call them “African-Americans”- never just “blacks”. I sometimes wonder why I continue listening to that racially clueless idiot!

    • Dr. Möbias

      In a sane world Zerobama wouldn’t be president and Reverend Lowery wouldn’t have received  the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009 from him.

  • Obongo_Mike1

    Like an inner-city yooth with a full can of spray paint,
    Reverend Lowrey simply can’t help himself.


    Which is good.

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    Oh, so it being a “joke” makes it all right? Tell that to the guy who played “Kramer” and the hundreds of other whites who lost their jobs or positions of prominence because of a politically incorrect remark. Sadly, after all these decades of white largess, this is the position of most black “activists,” whether young or old. If only whites knew how they hate us.

    • 1gravity

       That’s it, really, and well put: “If only whites knew how they hate us.”  That hate is all pervasive, spans generations and will never go away.  The Civil Rights Movement has been, and always will be, a waste.

    • Sherman_McCoy

      “If only whites knew how they hate us.”

      Well, this white does, and the feeling is mutual.  And I am not alone.  And our numbers are growing each day.

  • Dr. Möbias

    All white people are going to hell…

    Well, that statement should help race relations.

    I can take comfort in knowing that Chris Matthews, Janet Napolitano, Hillary, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid will be joining me there.

    Don’t like us Whites, REV. Lowry?  Wait until the Chinese are your overlords.

  • potato78

    “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.”

    He doesn’t like to be diversified? or Joseph Lowery likes USA to become a pure black country? He is a racist?

    USA is the most diversified country in the world.


  • “De Rev” jus’ be jokin’, you see. Wonder what the mainstream media would say if the Rev. Franklin Graham, just to pick the name of a prominent White clergyman at random, said in a rally for Mitt Romney that “all black people will go to hell”? We all know the answer to that, don’t we? The old racial double standard is alive and well.

    I also wonder what the MSM would have said if the Rev. Graham had used “the N-word,” which we can’t even utter on a racial realist website, while blacks use it “at will.” But they can also call us “honkey” or “cracker,” and that’s perfectly OK. Guess that comes under the “Life isn’t fair” category.

    • Puggg

      Billy Graham and Richard Nixon made black and Jew jokes complete with the n-word and other racial and ethnic slurs in the White House.

      • Sherman_McCoy

        Well, God bless ’em.

      • Dr. Möbias

        in the White House behind closed doors, never in public.

        Blacks now spew hatred and vitriol against whites publicly and openly and without sanction, from the pulpit, twitter, the Internet, the media.  They call for the killing of white babies, for whites to go to hell, for the rape of white women, for looting, robbery and assaults.

        No one does a thing.

        • FourFooted_Messiah

           It’s not that they say stuff that bothers or scares me.  It’s that we can’t say stuff back.

        • guest

           They have the full backing of the Federal Government, Main Stream Media, every law enforcement  agency, politician and the left. 

  • Bantu_Education

    He is right, but hell is not somewhere we are going when we die – we are there already..!!  A world where blacks live amongst us AND are given special privileges AND have more political power than we do, AND are absolved from all their hate crimes against us, is the very definition of HELL..!  

  • Well, yeah. He told us this in the inaugural address he did on Obama’s behalf.

  • Wil

    The white vote shuold be 100 % for Romney sending Obama and all his followers to hell.

    • jeffaral

      Any special reason for Whites to vote for Romney who’s going to legalize all illegals, in case he wins???!!!

      • IstvanIN

         We can put pressure on congressional Republicans to hopefully reign him in.  Can not do anything with the marching in lock-step Demoncrats.

  • Athling

    Surely we’re not surprised by the anti-white venom publicly spewed from the mouths of Africans. With no reprecussions, of course. Even Obama can absorb and applaud this poison for twenty years under the guidance of anti-white cult leader Jeramiah Wright and still be elected president of the US with the help of millions of whites void of racial identity. Repulsive.

  • Sherman_McCoy

    Well, here I go again with one of my “sure to be pulled” comments:

    I don’t think non-humans will be going to either place.  (Although, I did have a wonderful cat.)

    • anonymous_amren

      I’ve been watching the TV show Supernatural, and it is like you describe. Normal humans go to heaven or hell, but monsters all go to purgatory.

      • Sherman_McCoy

        Love that show.  Methinks Benny is going to replace Jared Padalecki’s character, but that’s just a feeling . . .

        Watch out for those  Vampires and Leviathans!

        • anonymous_amren

          I wonder what the government and the left would do if monsters like that were real. It would be a dream come true for them. They would have affirmative action for all the monsters, force them into white neighborhoods, and demonize anyone who complains about being eaten (except the demons of course, demonizing demons wouldn’t be allowed).

        • FourFooted_Messiah

           Anonymous_amren – Frankly, there’s certain humans out there that put the fanciful monsters to shame.

          And a friendly monster could be VERY useful. 

          “Look, Grok, see those Pakistanis over there?  They don’t like you, and called you some not very nice names ….”

    • FourFooted_Messiah

      Since I don’t believe in such a place, I don’t think anyone is going there.

      But I’d rather see non-humans in heaven than .. well .. pakistanis or stuff, “just because they’re human and my dog/cat isn’t”.   Not that I would be going there anyway, nor would I want to, it sounds kind of boring to me .. and I would really hate to spend eternity in a place where there was nothing but humans, humans, humans anyway. It’s bad enough the real world is going that way.

  • Sherman_McCoy

    I like your moxie, there somebody, but way too many evangelical groups teach just the opposite.

  • Hitler sent millions to their deaths in the camps, but fretted about the most humane way to cook lobsters. Stalin was good to his dogs. And Caligula made his horse the head of the Roman Senate.

    These men were “caring” too.

    • FourFooted_Messiah

      As far as Caligula goes, I think he was simply making a statement as how useless the Senate was at that point.  The Canadian Senate might as well be made up of livestock too, as it’s little more than a rubber-stamp industry.

      In fact, many Western politicians don’t seem to be much smarter that some beasts.

  • The Worlds Scapegoat

    It can’t be hell without black people and that other group of west Asians.

  • “That’s not him—he’s a very caring person.”

    Don’t we hear the same thing whenever a black kid commits a crime?

    ‘He’s a good boy. He ain’t never done nothing wrong.’

  • JackKrak

    Hey, it was just a joke!

    Liberals – and black liberals in particular – can defecate on a church altar while raping a puppy and later explain it as a “joke” & the issue is over.

    Meanwhile, conservatives are brought to trial for not separating their recyclables.

  • jeffaral

    Christian churches in America, whether their congegrations are black, white or brown are always spewing hatred against White people.    What’s wrong with them?   Do they want the total mongrelisation of mankind since they believe -like the commies- that all men are equal????!!!

  • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

     And that is because they think that they can somehow retain the wealth that whites created.  But as we see with any example anyone wishes to use from Detroit to Zimbabwe, blacks destroy civilization.  Their MA is to find something whites still have and appropriate it through “legal” political means or just outright confiscation. 

  • FourFooted_Messiah

    If a white guy made a joke like that, imagine the flak.

    Here in Alberta, the Wild Rose party lost at the last moment (after being ahead in the polls for months) because one of its candidates (some sort of pastor) made a comment in his church about gays going to hell.

    I just went to see Jeff Dunham last night.  I have seen the flak HE gets, being called a “racist” because of Achmed, the Dead Terrorist .. such people shut up when you point out that he also has Walter, Bubba J, and whatever the heck Peanut is.

  • razorrare

    Lowery is another example of why we proud,faithful Whites need to  cherish our prejudices.
    My People…

  • ageofknowledge

    “He’s a very caring person,” she said.  Of course this is true, he cares very deeply about destroying all of us to whatever extent he is able.

  • “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”…….Quote.

    More FAKE “news” reports, these guys and their dirty tricks are giving “The Onion” a good run for the spotlight.

  • FourFooted_Messiah

     I haven`t laughed that hard in a while, thank you!

  • Realist

    That’s an insult to Caligula. Obama is more like Romulus Augustulus -an impotent puppet of forces far beyond his control and yet, glibly pretending importance.
