After riots were sparked by a 23-year-old black man who was shot by a 24-year-old black police officer in Milwuakee, there was one thing that escaped much of the attention: his father.
It was well-known that the man killed, Syville Smith, had a long criminal history for such a short life.
In a local television interview the father of Syville, Patrick Smith, was visibly anguished and apologized for his absence in his son’s life:
“Your hero is your dad, and I played a very big part in my family’s role model for them. I got out of jail two months ago, but I’ve been going back and forth in jail, and they see those things. So I’d like to apologize to my kids because this is the role model they look up to. When they see the wrong role model, this is what you get.”
This is it! This is the brutal honesty our country needs to hear! But the media swept his response under the rug.
Right now, politicians from both sides of the aisle make speeches to black communities because of the massive influence of the black voting block, especially in a tight election.
Yet, liberals have given speeches and delivered handouts for 50 years! A single speech from a conservative will not change minds. We must reach hearts and minds one person at a time and it’s a black pastor — the center of the black community — who can achieve this.
That’s why in 30 days, CURE — the non-profit that I founded and run in Washington, DC — will host a major Black Pastor Policy Summit in our nation’s capital!
Our pastors can magnify Patrick Smith’s apology far and wide — far greater than any politician. That’s because they have the ears of thousands upon thousands of blacks who attend church more than any demographic. These men are trusted and they are tired of the liberal lies. They make the trek to Washington, DC so I can equip them with the truth!
Friend, for three days, influential black pastors will pay their way to Washington, DC to attend my training so we can expose the lies of organizations like Black Lives Matter and the Congressional Black Caucus! This is especially important in this atmosphere!
Black Lives Matter is infused with cash from Hollywood and foreign progressives who hate America such as George Soros. We are counting at least $134 million that has been given to Black Lives Matter and similar organizations who want to tear our country apart and rebuild it into a Marxist utopia!
You know our freedom is at risk more than ever before.
