Safe Mode: On
Holder to brief black pastors on campaign 2012

Attorney General Eric Holder, the IRS, and the liberal lawyers at the ACLU will brief several hundred pastors in the African American community on how to participate in the presidential election -- which the Congressional Black Caucus chair expects will help President Obama's campaign.

"We will have representatives from nine denominations who actually pastor somewhere in the neighborhood of about 10 million people, and we're going to first of all equip them with the information they need to know about what they can say and what they cannot say in the church that would violate their 501c3 status with the IRS," Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., told MSNBC today.

"In fact, we're going to have the IRS administrator there, we're going to have the Attorney General Eric Holder there, we're going to have the lawyers' organization from around the country, the ACLU -- all giving ministers guidance about what they can and cannot do," he noted.

Cleaver said they would not tell pastors which candidate to support. They will let them know who to regard as the bad guys, though (hint: not Democrats). "We're going to talk about some of the draconian laws that have cropped up around the country as a result of the 17 percent increase in African American votes," Cleaver said, describing voter ID laws as a form of Jim Crow-style "poll tax" on seniors and black voters.

The CBC chairman is confident that "President Obama is going to get 95 percent of the [African American] vote," and wants to keep that turnout high. "We want to let them know that there is a theological responsibility to participate in the political process, at least in the Judeo-Christian tradition," he said.

  • Well if Obama and his "Black Congressional Caucus" wants to make this election a racial issue, so be it. Make sure all of your friends vote for Romney just because he is white. We can't afford another 4 years of a black president.

    This is racism on a national basis, pure and simple. Fight fire with fire I always say!!

    • @dirtbiker201 Haha Im white dude. Theres way more racist white folks than blacks by default. Whites had laws born of pure racism against blacks and you are calling this national racism. Fucking Mormons teach racism in their fucking fairy tales. Ask them about Central and South American Indians.

    • @ILLHERBS

      I've been saying I will vote for Ron Paul no matter what for months. The problem is, if I do that, it costs Romney a vote. I would hate to see Obama win by a tiny fraction of the vote when so many are going to vote for Ron Paul. Its a lose/lose proposition. SO, in order for Obama to LOSE, which is the main goal I think of most of us on LL, I am voting for Romney.

  • Why am I always hearing about these "Black Pastors" when their communities are warzones? Not enough practicing what you preach? Anyway, it's no surprise Blacks will vote in the Democrat...especially a mixed-breed. Wait a couple decades folks, the voter base for the Democrats will be unmanageable.

  • Oh...MSNBC must be racist now - "his clearly strongest voter group is blacks". If FOX said this, all the other news outlets and black people would be jumping all over it.

    Fuck the double standard.

  • Is the Catholic Church attending the training session?

    Somehow I doubt it, but they should, so they can make sure that Holder's own words will show them how to explain who the enemy is from the pulpit.
