Of course, the media is not reporting it as such but that is exactly what it boils down to. As reported by the Washington Examiner,
“Attorney General Eric Holder, the IRS, and the liberal lawyers at the ACLU will brief several hundred pastors in the African American community on how to participate in the presidential election — which the Congressional Black Caucus chair expects will help President Obama’s campaign.
‘We will have representatives from nine denominations who actually pastor somewhere in the neighborhood of about 10 million people, and we’re going to first of all equip them with the information they need to know about what they can say and what they cannot say in the church that would violate their 501c3 status with the IRS,’ Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., told MSNBC today.
‘In fact, we’re going to have the IRS administrator there, we’re going to have the Attorney General Eric Holder there, we’re going to have the lawyers’ organization from around the country, the ACLU — all giving ministers guidance about what they can and cannot do,’ he noted….”

Sound like a threat to you? Sounds like a threat to me.
Clearly, Sharpton and Jackson have lost their touch with the Black community so much so that Barack Obama has now decided to send his ultimate police force (aka the Internal Revenue Service) to (a) control the message, (b) scare the hell out of the pastors and (c) put them in check.
The message to Black pastors and the Black community is this: You submit and do as you are told or the Internal Revenue Service will be knocking at your door.
This so-called briefing has nothing to do with so-called draconian laws on the books as claimed by Holder. This is about disempowering pastors, silencing the Black community and controlling the message from the pulpit, thus keeping Black people in check and on the plantation.
What better way to control Black pastors who are dependent upon government financing than bringing the IRS along. Not only is that draconian, it is a foot up the arses of pastors and the Black community. H/t The Blaze.
The same preachers who kowtowed to Obama’s gay marriage agenda will now dutifully preach Marxist propaganda and fear mongering from their pulpits every Sunday morning forcing Obama kool-aid down the throats of their congregants.
Do not worship any other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God. Exodus 34:14
These overseers of the Obama plantation will be further charged with leading their congregants down the fiery path to hell right along with them.
Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you; Deuteronomy 6:14
Wake up Black America. It is no longer just your freedom that is at stake but your soul.
