Look at the evidence quickly before it is scrubbed by the powers that be…
His death was quickly used by the Mainstream Media and the Obama White House as a tool by which they could call for the outright banning of a historical image sacred to many who proudly declare their Southern heritage. And yet, the facts of Pastor Clementa Pinckney’s actual vote to locate the Confederate flag during his first term as a South Carolina senator have been willfully ignored by those same figures.
Senator Pinckney SUPPORTED placing the Confederate flag at the very state-house location the Mainstream Media and the Obama administration are demanding it be torn down from. And just as they tear down that flag, so too do they tear down the truth of who Clementa Punckney really was – a man of honor who did not participate in the race-baiting politics of Barack Obama and those like him.
(An honorable man has his legacy tarnished by the Age of Obama.)

In his eulogy at the Pinckney memorial yesterday, Barack Obama said nothing of Senator Punckney’s vote to place the Confederate Flag at the South Carolina statehouse. Instead, Mr. Obama once again demeaned the history of the United States, of the South, pitted Americans of one race against the other, and even went so far as to suggest his political agenda was actually the will of God Himself:
Obama Tells Nation HE Now Speaks For God’s Will Regarding America’s Future
Clementa Pinckney was by all accounts a good and honorable man whose legacy of peaceful compromise did not deserve the divisive political rhetoric of a graceless president whose legacy has been one of self-serving demagoguery that continues to further diminish and weaken America.
