But Hagee is A WHITE Angry Preacher, So That’s Okay

I just can’t stand it any more. I’ve got to break my jaw-clenched, steaming mad silence, this pisses me off so much.

There’s this black angry preacher who a presidential candidate did not seek the endorsement of and did not receive the endorsement of, and did not invite to join his campaign in any capacity whatsoever. When the presidential candidate found out he said “God Damn America” more than a handful of years ago, the presidential candidate quickly and repeatedly denouced that position. When the black angry preacher decided to keep saying such things, the presidential candidate called a national news conference to reject, renounce, denounce and condemn the black angry preacher. The news media covers this prominently for months on end, and pundits decide that the existence of this black angry preacher may doom the presidential candidate’s campaign.

There’s this white angry preacher who another presidential candidate DID seek the endorsement of, and DID receive the endorsement of, and DID hug on stage at a political rally, and DID proclaim to be proud to have associated with the campaign and was “glad to have” him join the campaign. When this presidential candidate found out that the white angry preacher said “America is under the curse of God, even now,” the presidential candidate responded on national TV that “I’m glad to have his endorsement.” When the white angry preacher continued to say such things, political insiders accepted the presidential candidate’s non-rejection mutely. Hardly any media attention is given to this information, and this presidential candidate continues to sail on to the presidential nomination.

The next time you’re sitting with your friend Rachel and she asks you why those, those, you know, black people say there’s still racism in this country, remember this. Then slap Rachel on the head for me and tell her to get a clue.

    And yep, in case you noticed, I’m busting my one-week-long moratorium on posting about the presidential campaign. I thought that not writing about it would purge the feeling of contamination I’d been suffering. But no dice. When bullshit comes raining down on my head, I just can’t go on pretending I don’t smell it.

  • I proclaim Project Hagee. We need to keep working to get out the word – and if the mainstream news media ignore it, then we’ll do what we can to make their ignorance into irrelevance.

    These religious figures should just go back to their little fiefdoms and megachurches and continue to rake in the “God money” with their well-established scams. Now that Karl Rove has brought them onto the previously banned political playing field and they’ve sniffed a sense of more power to be had, it will be hard to get them to go away. One good way is to continue to highlight their complete idiocy with regard to science, their total out of touch policies regarding sex, birth control and same-sex issues, and to keep in the headlines the on-going scandals plaguing their domain (like the cult in Texas recently, the pedophile priests, and clergy who solicit sex, etc).)

    Let’s get those letters to the editors going, folks. Ain’t doin’ no good us sitting around preaching at each other!

  • Yes, letters to the editor are good, but so are emails that YOU write and send to your friends, AND to anyone that sends you those awful slanderous emails against Barack Obama.

    Got a blog? Write an article of your own. Know someone with a blog? Leave a comment.

    People read these things – and it does help.

    Let’s not just depend upon the anemic mainstream news media that has failed to report on Hagee in the first place. It’s time to use the media WE have at our fingertips.

  • no but angry of sin and sinners
