Video: DNC Hosts Radical Pastor Frederick Haynes

Claims border wall supporters "going to hell"


It speaks volumes about who the Democrats allow to speak at their convention.

This year, the DNC invited race-baiting pastor Frederick Haynes to deliver a speech.

It comes at no shock that Hanyes speech was ripe with race-baiting content aimed at President Trump.

What’s even wilder, however, is that Haynes essentially claimed that anyone who supports the border wall is going to hell.

The New York Post reports on Haynes’s toxic speech:

A Texas pastor speaking at the Democratic National Convention on Monday trashed Republican policies in America, including the southern border wall, and claimed Jesus would say that unless the country changes, “you may go to hell.”

The Rev. Freddie Haynes, speaking at a Black Caucus Faith Event at the DNC, encouraged Democrats with a “backbone” to recognize the teachings of Jesus Christ and warned that “a nation will be judged by how it treats the least” of its citizens.

“I was a stranger. And you had the nerve to build a wall, while at the same time you have in the harbor there in New York, the Statue of Liberty saying, ‘Give me your tired, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,’” said Haynes, the pastor of the Friendship-West Baptist Church in Dallas.

“Jesus will say, ‘America, if you don’t get your act together, you may well go to hell.’ Why? Because inasmuch as you do it to the least of these my sisters and brothers, you also doing it unto me,” he said, referring to the words of Jesus to slam the policies adopted by the Trump administration.

Watch the excerpt from Haynes’s speech right here:

Take it a step further and Haynes probably believes that all Republicans are going to hell.

And this is a guy Democrats want to give a platform to at their convention?

You know his speech had to be submitted and approved beforehand by DNC officials.

Check out the fiery responses on Twitter to Haynes's speech:

Many were quick to point out that Haynes has shown his support for Louis Farrakhan, a man well-known for his anti-Semitic and anti-white statements.

Take a look at what Haynes tweeted in 2017 in response to meeting Farrakhan:

A great man?

Someone who has called for an end to Jews and white people?

It's absolutely stunning that Democrats willingly associate themselves with these kinds of people!

Dallas Weekly details that Haynes also previously organized a rally in protest to a pro-police gathering in Dallas earlier this month, in which he said the gathering was full of "white supremacy":

This Sunday, August 9, 2020 there will be a Black Lives Matter “Ride-In for a New Dallas.” Starting at 8:30 a.m. at the Barack Obama Male Leadership Academy (3030 Stag Road, Dallas, Texas 75241), the caravan will drive through Oak Cliff and end at Friendship-West Baptist Church (2020 W. Wheatland Road, Dallas, TX 75232). The event is open to public supporters and those who plan to participate in the caravan are asked to register via Eventbrite. Others who wish to support are encouraged to meet in the church parking lot at 9:45 a.m.

The Black Lives Matter Ride-In is a demonstration of solidarity and support for Friendship-West and the Oak Cliff community, following an unauthorized “Back the Blue Cruise” rally held at the church last Sunday. It will also serve as a call-to-action where volunteers will be registering voters, recruiting election poll workers, and encouraging participation in the 2020 Census. Attendees will also hear from Dr. Frederick D. Haynes, senior pastor of Friendship-West Baptist Church. He will set the record straight on the intimidation attacks against the church, and share information on what he and other leaders are calling for from the City of Dallas, regarding public safety and positive community change.

Dr. Frederick Haynes wants to make it clear that the “Back the Blue Cruise” was not authorized by him, or any staff members, and was a targeted attack. “Last week, the sacred space of the Black community, the Black Church, was invaded by many with bad intentions, but what they intended for evil we will transform for the good of the cause of justice,” said Dr. Haynes. “These disUnited States are in the midst of a reckoning, which is an opportunity for the next reconstruction of this nation. Our “Ride-in” is a tribute to the freedom riders and the sit-in movements of the sixties. Join us as we take a ride for freedom and justice.”

Dr. Haynes also hopes to shine a national spotlight on what happened in hopes of protecting other Black churches around the country. In addition to the incident at Friendship-West Baptist Church, there was an arson attempt on The Way Christian Center in Berkeley, California, less than 12 hours after they put up a large Black Lives Matter banner.

Despite the recent incident, Dr. Frederick Haynes, known widely as “the drum major for justice,” continues to work diligently to stand up for justice and create positive change, nationally, and in the Dallas-Ft. Worth community. In Southern Dallas, which lacks many resources for its residents, his vision is for a “new” Dallas where housing, gainful employment, fresh produce, clean air, safe neighborhoods, quality healthcare and access to sustainable resources, are available for all Dallas residents.

Dr. Haynes is also a leader in the efforts calling for defunding policing in our communities and recommends reallocating no less than 60% of the current public safety budget to redress the decades-long history of targeted and intentional economic disenfranchisement, terrorism, and incarceration unleashed on Black people. This has been done, successfully, in San Francisco and Los Angeles, and Dr. Haynes believes the same can be achieved in Dallas with the hope of positioning the city as a national model for other cities to follow.
