What if say, President Bush had given the Presidential Medal of Freedom to a prominent evangelical who said that Jews are going to hell? You think it might get some coverage in the legacy media?
In my previous post, I noted that among the many stories our legacy media seem to be downplaying if not out right ignoring is one about Rev. Joseph Lowery, the man “who gave Obama’s inaugural benediction“. At “a weekend rally in central Georgia“, the pastor said
. . . that the “level and hatred and bitterness” borne of this election had made him a believer that whites were going to hell.
Lowery said, according to the Monroe County Reporter, it was the same belief he held at the height of the civil rights movement. Eventually he mellowed, believing that not all whites, rather only “most,” would get their brimstone comeuppance.
“Now,” the local newsweekly reported, “he is back to where he was.”
