Gun Control Debate Sounds More Like Salem Racist Trials

Leave a comment

H/T Bearing Arms.

The DemocRats are getting desperate so they are playing the race card against the whole nation

 

 

Screen-Shot-2016-08-25-at-1.44.39-PM

 

Unfortunately, the gun control debate has turned into the Salem Racist Trials. You have bird brain videos like the “Black NRA” from Sarah Silverman mocking the concept of a black NRA, insinuating that the NRA is a racist organization that only advocates the use of firearms for non-African-Americans. So in turn, you turn to the oldest joke in the book: The NRA is racist. Good one. No one saw that one coming. I want to give you the benefit of the doubt, but I can’t because the video was so poorly executed, I’m not even sure it was satire.

Even if it was, the point I think you were trying to make is ignorant. You’re so desperate to turn the Second Amendment debate into black versus white that you’re the one who ends up looking like you’ve got a race problem. Because the only place I see people fearing young black men like myself who own guns responsibly is in your own video.

Look, there are a bunch of white people in the NRA, but that’s like saying there’s a bunch of sand on the beach. There hasn’t been a full scale attack by the mainstream media to dissuade white people from the NRA. But I can pull up video after video, article after article insinuating that the NRA is racist simply because they have a lot of white members. Oh, and God forbid they give a black man a platform to talk gun rights—now they’re pandering.

Virginia mayor faces charges after police chase over expired car sticker

Leave a comment

This is from Fox News.

Mayor Kenny Wright will play the race card and claim he was afraid the officer would shoot him.

The mayor of a small Virginia city refused to pull over as law enforcement officers chased him over an expired inspection sticker on his car, the sheriff said, and he now faces charges.

Portsmouth Sheriff Bill Watson told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he noticed the car — with its sticker, expired in June — on Tuesday night. Watson says that at first he didn’t realized it belonged to Mayor Kenny Wright, but he stopped to get a closer look and saw something in the car indicating it was Wright’s.

Watson said he waited for Wright to arrive at the vehicle after a City Council meeting.

“Once he gets in the car and starts it up, now he’s in violation,” Watson said. “That’s when I turned the lights on my car, and I stepped out and I said, `Hold it right there, mayor.’ He looked right at me and kept right on going. I thought, `OK, this is the way it’s going to be.’ So I got in my car and took off after him.”

Watson said he caught up with Wright a half-block away at a traffic circle and asked the mayor to roll down his window, but the light turned green and Wright took off again.

Watson said he summoned for assistance from Portsmouth police and Wright stopped eventually, was asked for his license and registration, and was cited for the expired sticker.

Watson said that on Wednesday, he also obtained a warrant for a felony eluding charge against Wright after researching state code.

Watson said Wright has to learn “that no one is above the law.”

Messages left with Wright and Portsmouth Commonwealth’s Attorney Stephan Morales weren’t immediately returned.

A majority of the city’s 96,000 residents are black, and so is Wright. Watson is white. Racial tensions in the city escalated at an October City Council meeting in a debate over city contracts. White residents reprimanded a black council member over his remarks to white speakers, and council members argued with one another.

And in September, a white police officer who shot and killed a black man in a Wal-Mart parking lot was indicted on first-degree murder and firearms charges. Police have said the officer, Stephen D. Rankin, was responding to a shoplifting complaint when a struggle ensued and 18-year-old William Chapman II was shot.

Rankin, who is no longer on the police force, is set for trial March 21.

I don’t usually play the race card, but…

The great thing about having this website is that it’s my personal blog and shared with occasional commentary from two people – my wife Angela, with whom I will celebrate 25 years on Christmas Eve, and my editor. Here you’ll find my personal thoughts, perspectives, and insights as a private free American citizen with a singular First Amendment right of free speech.

Of course there are those of the progressive socialist left persuasion, who feel individuals shouldn’t have completely free speech unless it freely agrees with their ideology.

I offer my assessments and analyses of current events, and readers are kindly welcomed to comment, but generally, the response emanating from those on the left isn’t debate — but rather abject disdain and personal assault.

But may I remind detractors of your simple choice of free will. You don’t have to visit my website if you don’t like my thoughts.

With that being said, many on the left say we need to have a conversation about racism in America. So let’s have one.

Let me start by saying it will have nothing to with how the white man has kept me down. As a matter of fact, what I have achieved could only have happened in America.

I was born and raised in the inner city of Atlanta, Georgia, in the same 4th Ward neighborhood that claimed Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as a favored son. My own elementary school, Our Lady of Lourdes, is located at the corner of Boulevard and the historic Auburn Avenue – near Ebenezer Baptist Church and Dr. King’s familial home just around the corner.

I grew up quite proud of my American black heritage and still am. I recall days walking down Auburn Ave. past the offices of black professionals — doctors, lawyers, and such — as well as black-owned small businesses on my way to the historic Butler Street YMCA where I learned to swim, play basketball, and box. Funny thing — when Dr. King was assassinated, I don’t remember anyone rioting and setting fire to businesses in my neighborhood.

I grew up in a simple two-parent home at 651 Kennesaw Avenue NE — I tell the story of Buck and Snooks West in my book, Guardian of the Republic. As it happens, Buck and Snooks were registered Democrats, and I had a blast telling Rep. John Lewis how I remembered as a boy my folks talking about him and voting for him.

My memories of the black community growing up were centered on faith, family, education, personal responsibility, self-reliance, and for my family — service to the nation in uniform. Those ladies and gents are conservative principles and values — or as I was wrote here — classical liberal principles.

My parents stressed not just to me and my brothers, but to our larger family and relations, that you should never allow yourself to be dependent upon someone else. As Mom would say, “self-esteem comes from doing ‘esteemable’ things.” She also drilled into my head that, “a man must stand for something or else he will fall for anything.”

Sadly enough today, if you are a black American standing for conservative principles and values — which are the foundation of the black community and what were once its strength — you are a target.

It’s white liberals who find themselves abhorring the existence of any minority that rejects their progressive socialist collective ideology and seeks to “think for themselves.”

You become the “uppity negro” and are derided with such loving terms of endearment as “House Ni!@er,” “Sellout,” “Uncle Tom,” and “Oreo.” Even worse, white liberals have co-opted other blacks to join in the mob-like attacks against those of us who just — well, embody those old school values in which parents (when there were a preponderance of two-parent homes) in the black community instructed us.

Then again, it was the Great Society policies of a progressive socialist big government Democrat president from Texas named Lyndon Baines Johnson that began the decimation of the black family. It resulting in today’s out of wedlock birth rate of nearly 72 percent — all because it was believed that rewarding a woman for having a child out of wedlock with a government check — as long as she kept the man out of the home — was a good thing.

So, in my black community, the venerable and strong black man who survived slavery, Jim Crow, the KKK, segregation, poll taxes, literacy tests (all from the same Democrat party) was finally killed off virtually — and literally in some cases through inner city gang violence — by Democrat policy.

And so it goes that the plantation has been restored, but this time it is a 21st century economic plantation of servitude and submission to the welfare nanny-state.

The real racism comes from the new plantation masters who have riled up the masses and mob to ensure this is not lost. And therefore, woe, despair, degradation, denigration, and derision upon those who are living up to their parents’ dream — Dr. King’s dream — and have escaped the progressive socialist inner city plantation because we fought through the “pursuit of happiness” to develop the “content of our character” and not await a government granted “guarantee of happiness” due to the “color of our skin.”

And that ladies and gents truly angers those on the left — just ask the likes of Justice Clarence Thomas, Star Parker, my fellow Atlantan Herman Cain, Condoleeza Rice, Senator Tim Scott, Rep-Elect Mia Love, Shelby Steele, Jason Riley, Harry Alford, Raffi Williams, Chloe Valdary, Harris Faulkner, Deneen Borelli,AlfonZo Rachel, Janice Rogers Brown, James Golden, Amy Holmes, Niger Innis,Kevin Jackson, Armstrong Williams, Deroy Murdock, JC Watts, Jesse Lee Peterson, Ken Blackwell, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Larry Elder, Angela McGlowan, and Mychal Massie.

What have we all done to so anger the white progressive socialist left that we constantly draw their ire? We succeeded.

And therein lies the real racism about which the liberal media doesn’t want a conversation — black success based on fundamental American liberty and freedom enshrined in conservative principles such as individual sovereignty and free market entrepreneurship.

So someone like myself is regularly assaulted by left wing media outlets for the most insidious accusations. I remember while running for Congress in the 2010 cycle, the day my oldest daughter picked up the mail, and in it was a piece from the Florida Democrat Party which boldly displayed my social security number and my wife’s employment identification number — she is a financial broker. Why? It’s not far off from finding a burning cross in your front yard — my daughter screamed and began to cry and my wife was hysterical. And when we revealed this, the local Palm Beach Post newspaper ran a survey asking if I was making too big of a deal of this nefarious action.

Or how about a San Francisco-based far left progressive group called CREDO that showed up in the 2012 election cycle and ran a shadow campaign which included phone calls to homes stating that “did you know that Allen West beats his wife” — y’all know the typical progressive socialist attacks against black men — characterize them as violent. The truth doesn’t matter — actually the lie and deceit are the strongest tactics.

Could you imagine if a prominent black conservative owed $4 million to the IRS? Heaven knows what the liberal progressive media would say. But if you’re a progressive socialist overseer of the black community, not only do you get a national TV show, you get to visit the White House 82 times. And when was the last time a black conservative was invited into the Oval Office to sit with the “first black president?”

The real conversation about race in America needs to be about why the progressive socialist left despises black success not wedded to its ideology? Even former NBA great, Charles Barkley has come under attack for speaking his mind about certain matters on race — the real conversation that needs to be had.

What sense does it make for the black community to enslave itself to one political ideology and invest all of its political capital there? It has only led to abject disregard.

And so I conclude this essay of my thoughts — the real racism has always come from one party in America: the Democrat party. And their 21st century ” lynching” tactics and techniques are just the same but with better use of modern technology.

Unfortunately for them just as men like Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington and women like Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman took a stand, a new generation of freedom-minded blacks are stepping out of the shadows — even Dr. King’s alma mater of Morehouse College now has a Republican Club. Our voices will not be silenced, regardless of the new tactics of the same old gang.

All black lives matter, not just the ones progressive socialists use “prosecutorial discretion” to care about through the policies of economic enslavement as opposed to those black conservatives embrace — economic empowerment.

Surveillance Video Shows Shooting at Highland Park Hospital

1 Comment

This is from NBC 5 Chicago.

A Son Of Obama rides with a drunk driver with his nine year old daughter in tow and is involved in a wreck.

They end up in the emergency room at Highland Park Hospital where the ignorant hood rat pulls a gun on the staff.

Then said ignorant hood rat refuses to put down his gun and gets his dumb ass killed.

Now the hood rat’s family is saying he was innocent and should have been tazered and not shot.

Cue the family playing the race card and getting one of the race baiter brothers9Jackson,Sharpton) stirring the pot.

I can not get the videos embedded.

 

Newly released surveillance video shows the chaotic scene at a Highland Park hospital as workers flee from a man who authorities say was armed with a handgun and was then shot by police.

Illinois State Police officials said the entire incident began shortly after 11 p.m. on Nov. 3 when police responded to a crash on Route 94 near Lake Cook Road and arrested the driver for driving under the influence.

 

Two passengers in the vehicle, Christopher Anderson and his 9-year-old daughter, were taken to Highland Park Hospital, police said.

A few hours later, about 1:30 a.m., Highland Park police officers responded to a call for assistance with an “aggressive subject” at the hospital. Officers and hospital staff attempted to calm Anderson, who they say pulled out a handgun after becoming angry over the young girl’s care.

After “repeated efforts” to get him to drop his weapon, officers fired, according to the statement. Anderson was struck and pronounced dead, police said.

In the footage, workers and officials are seen running from the hospital room. A few minutes later, officials wheel someone out of the room on a gurney.

Outraged family members remain adamant that Anderson didn’t have a gun and said police have not given them updates about what happened.

“He was just looking out for his 9-year-old daughter, in a hospital,” said his girlfriend Ladonna Rhyan. “They’re not supposed to kill him. Why not Taser? So many different methods.”

No other injuries were reported. Anderson’s daughter was out of the hospital Monday and with her mom.

The Lake County State’s attorney’s office and Highland Park police said the shooting was justified and officers followed protocol. They also allege Anderson was intoxicated the night of the incident and that the gun he allegedly had was stolen.

The Race Card Cometh Yet Again (Again)

Leave a comment

This is from Town Hall.

The DemocRats are the masters of playing the race card.

I found this picture on Facebook it explains why DemocRats need the race card.

 

When it comes to life’s guarantees, there’s death, taxes, death taxes, the tides, the Chicago Cubs not winning a World Series, and the race card being played by Democrats as an election approaches.

With less than two weeks to go before this year’s mid-term elections, that last guarantee is in full effect.

Polls show Democrats aren’t very excited at the prospect of voting next month. They’re disappointed by the president’s failures and the fumbles by their candidates. But make no mistake – they will vote, and they will vote for the Democrats.

Polls on enthusiasm are interesting but irrelevant in terms of results. The vote of people who march into a polling place with a smile on their face and all the hope in the world in their hearts counts the same as the vote of someone reluctantly sulking in the booth next to them.

It’s down to headcount now – who can get people to show up and vote.

To that end, Democrats are starting to panic. Without President Obama on the ballot, many reliable Democratic voters simply don’t care about the election. The party must do whatever it can to get those people to the polls.

Democrats worry most about black turnout, so we’re seeing efforts to “inspire” black voters to go to the polls. Their tactic is humans’ greatest motivating force—fear.

In Georgia, where Democrat Michelle Nunn is battling with Republican David Perdue, Democrats are circulating fliers telling voters to vote if they “want to prevent another Ferguson.” This reference to the shooting of an unarmed black man by a white police officer was roundly condemned by everyone except Democrats. Nunn refused to disavow it. She hopes this race-based appeal will motivate more black voters to the polls than it will turn off.

In North Carolina, a shadowy group supporting Democratic Sen. Kay Hagandistributed fliers on cars at a black church that warned, “If Kay Hagan doesn’t win! Obama’s impeachment will begin! Vote in 2014.” Those words were superimposed over an actual picture of a lynched black man and a crowd of white onlookers. The message is clear – vote for the Democrat to stop the black president from being lynched. Ironically, the white men in the picture most likely were Democrats, given the party’s history of segregation and racism.

Those events took place in states where Republicans routinely win statewide, but this disgusting phenomenon isn’t relegated exclusively to red states.

Two of these events took place this week in Maryland, one of our bluest states.

The race for governor of Maryland was a formality, or at least that’s what conventional wisdom told us. Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown was all but assured victory, running in a state with a 2 to 1 voter registration advantage over Republicans. Brown had the added advantage of history, running to be the first black governor in a state with a large black population.

But Brown is an uninspiring candidate running an uninspiring campaign in a state weary of the failures of the previous eight years of Democratic rule. Moreover, he is best known for being in charge of setting up Maryland’s Obamacare exchange, a process that failed so miserably the state abandoned the effort and purchased a system from Connecticut. And he’s running against a successful small businessman in Larry Hogan, who has a vision for the state. In an election experts predicted would be a double-digit Democratic victory, it’s a 1-point race.

That closeness explains why the Democratic Party turned to race this week.

First Democrats sent out a mailer to black voters that invoked segregated waiting rooms and anti-civil right marches and equated voting for Brown with Martin Luther King’s March on Washington. (Seriously, take a minute, click here and see for yourself.)

The next day, black voters got another flier drawing a direct line from Martin Luther King to Barack Obama to Anthony Brown. Worse, it used the racially charged events in Ferguson, Mo., as an example of ways Republicans are “still trying to hold us back.” (Again, take a minute, click here and see it for yourself. I ask you to share both on Facebook and Twitter because people need to see the depths to which Democrats will go to scare people to win.)

These examples of depravity and desperation are not the actions of a confident party. Democrats are worried, and rightly so. But if conservatives, libertarians and Republicans sit out Nov. 4 to either “send a message” or because of apathy toward the party or a candidate running in their state, these tactics will be rewarded with governor’s mansions and maintained control of the Senate. And, ultimately, more control over your wallet, your liberty and your life.

If that happens, two years from now there will be nothing to stop more thinking like this from moving into the White House. The choice is yours.

 

Dad shoots, kills intruder inside Sarasota home

It seems that Chris Bane made a good criminal out of Calvin Yoder.

How long before Jackson and Sharpton show up and play the race card?

SARASOTA (FOX 13)

A home invasion turned deadly early Tuesday morning when the homeowner shot and killed the intruder, Sarasota County investigators said.

Deputies said the homeowner, Chris Bane, heard glass breaking at about 5:40 a.m. He grabbed his gun and went into the hallway, where he came face to face with Calvin Yoder.

“The burglar fired a shot and the homeowner returned fire, striking and killing the intruder,” said Wendy Rose, a spokesperson for the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office. “Apparently the homeowner has been the victim of burglary recently so he was on alert, he was on edge, and as soon as he heard glass breaking he armed himself to protect himself and his 11-year-old child who was in the home.”

Rose said Bane’s home had been broken into as recently as Sunday, but deputies aren’t sure if Yoder was involved.

Yoder, 22, has had several run-ins with the law; he’d been arrested at least five times and spent several months in prison.

Bane, 36, spent most of the day speaking with investigators but posted a long message on his Facebook page that read, in part, “im truly sorrywut was i suppose to do…my son was thereim not a bad dude.”

“[Bane and his son] were both uninjured,” Rose said. “Clearly they’re shaken up and speaking to investigators.”

Bane is not facing charges. It’s unclear if he and Yoder knew each other. The investigation is ongoing.

Offended Muslim Gets Couple Thrown Off Bus For Singing ‘Racist’ Song To Baby

This is from Mad World News.

Would would Winston Churchill say about England rolling over for the Muzzies?

Winston sure as Hell did not roll over for the Nazi’s.

So why roll over now to the puppets of the Nazi’s?

Now the Muzzies are playing the Race Card.

 

The parents of a 15-month-old autistic baby were riding on a bus when they started singing the theme song from Peppa Pig to keep their child happy during the ride. The couple, Nick Barnfield and Sarah Cleaves, claim they were then aggressively approached by a Muslim woman in a jihab, who began yelling, upset over their song choice.

Offended Muslim Gets Couple Thrown Off Bus For Singing ‘Racist’ Song To Baby

“A lady came up to us and quite aggressively started telling us we were irresponsible parents and that we were being racist singing the song,” Barnfield said.

Offended Muslim Gets Couple Thrown Off Bus For Singing ‘Racist’ Song To BabyThe popular cartoon which features a family of pigs, features a theme song where snorting sounds are made.

The Muslim woman automatically thought the couple was being racist and assumed the song was a reference to Islam, which forbids the eating of pork. Irate, she took up her complaint with the bus driver:

“She went up to the bus driver and told him we were being racist towards her,” Barnfield said. “The driver came up to me and said we had to get off the bus or the police would have to come.”

The couple was extremely humiliated over the whole thing:

“We were really embarrassed, ashamed and upset and we hadn’t done anything wrong- just trying to make our little girl happy. But people were looking at us as if we had done something wrong,” Barnfield said. “He [the driver] just said, ‘Go now, otherwise you’ll hold up all the passengers and no-one will be happy,’” Barnfield added.

 

An investigation into the incident by the bus company has begun, as the driver disputes the claim that the allegation of racism was a factor in his decision. Brandon Jones, head of external relations at the First bus group in Rotherham, England, said:

“The investigation is ongoing but we have viewed CCTV footage. It does show the customer leaving the bus at the location he describes and it does show a conversation between a lady customer on the bus and the driver, and the driver speaking to the customer. We’re speaking with our driver and with the customer to clarify the circumstances in which they left the bus. At this point I’m not in a position to confirm that they were forced to leave. It is clear they left the vehicle. The driver told us he heard no reference to racism but we are investigating the incident and have not yet drawn a conclusion,” Jones added.”

Absolute insanity, isn’t it? How long before this type of political correctness overtakes America too? With the way things are headed, it won’t be long.

Oh, and for the record, Islam isn’t a race!

Oh, My: Talking Trains Cartoon Is Racist Because Only The Good Engines Pump Out White Smoke

Leave a comment

This is from Independent Journal Review.

The politically correct crowd has worn out their race card.

This amount of ignorance cannot be made up.

PC Insanity Story of the Day: “Thomas & Friends,” the cartoon series featuring Thomas the Tank Engine and his other little talking train buddies, is racist. The reason? Only Thomas and the “good trains” pump out white smoke, while the “bad trains” pump out – wait for it – black smoke.

So, has political correctness finally gone ’round the bend? Not according to Tracy Van Slyke, writing for The Guardian:

For every Sesame Street, there is an annoying Caillou or an acid-trippy Yo Gabba Gabba. But Thomas and Friends is the one show with enough subversive messages to make me turn it off for good.

 

Thomas and those friends are trains that toil away endlessly on the Isle of Sodor and, on its surface, the show seems to impart good moral lessons about hard work and friendship.

 

But if you look through the steam rising up from the coal-powered train stacks, you realize that the pretty puffs of smoke are concealing some pretty twisted, anachronistic messages.

Ms. Van Slyke is particularly miffed by an episode in which one of the trains has his red paint removed – and is repainted pink. To her shock and dismay, the other trains make fun of the newly-pink “James.” But it’s her analysis of the train engines’ smoke that takes the cake:

For the record, all the “villains” on Thomas and Friends are the dirty diesel engines.

 

I’d like to think there was a good environmental message in there, but when the good engines pump out white smoke and the bad engines pump out black smoke it’s not hard to make the leap into the race territory.

 

NAACP Legal Defense Fund: Detroit Water Service Shutoffs Were Racially Motivated

1 Comment

This is from WWJ-TV 62 CBS Detriot.

I was just thinking how long before some race baiter declares the water shut off racists?

Then along comes the NAALCP Legal Defense Fund and they play the race card.

The evil white people own the water companies, don’t you know.

 

DETROIT (WWJ) – After a class action lawsuit filed against the city of Detroit, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund says that recent water shutoffs to Detroit residents were racially motivated.

Veronica Joice with the NAACP Legal Defense Fund says, “That (the shutoffs are) being done in a discriminatory fashion; and they should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens — the majority of whom are African American here in Detroit.”

Attorney Alice Jennings, who filed the lawsuit on behalf of Detroit residents, said it’s a known fact that there are corporations that owe hundreds of thousands of dollars to the city of Detroit Water and Sewerage Department.

“These companies are basically Caucasian companies,” Jennings said. “The folks who are being cut off are almost one hundred percent African American.”

Asked by WWJ’s Charlie Langton directly if this is a “racial issue,” Jennings replied: “It sure is! You bet it is.”

The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 homes and businesses in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. Water was restored to 43 percent after customers paid or worked out payment plans.

At a bankruptcy hearing Monday, federal Judge Steven Rhodes asked the city for an update on the water issue, but fell short of ordering any action.

Rhodes said the people of Detroit “need their water,” but added, “There’s nothing for me to do about that today.”

During the same hearing, water department officials announced they would stop water shutoffs for the next 15 days while working to do a better job getting the word out residents that the city will help poor people pay for water.


[Detroit: No More Water Shutoffs For Next 15 Days]

Talking to WWJ’s Sandra McNeil shortly after the announcement, water department spokesman Greg Eno admitted there’s no doubt that the department has been lax over the years, letting the bills pile up.

He said people who now owe more than they can afford are being asked to come in and apply for assistance through the Water Affordability Program.

Eno said, through, it’s not just free money.

“It also teaches them, or works into their budget, monies that would be dedicated to their water bill, because they have to make a contribution every month,” he explained. “This is not a program where you get everything given to you and you contribute nothing.”

Eno stressed, however, that not everyone in need will be able to get help.

“We don’t have, you know, a bottomless cup of funds,” he said, adding that’s why it’s important that affected customers come in as soon as possible.

As for the claim that residents are being targeted, but not corporations who are behind on their bills:

“The balances they have accrued — and, yes, some of them are significant, and we’ve made that list public — had been a result of storm water runoff charges; many of which are in dispute right now,” Eno said.

Eno said corporations are being given shutoff notices, too; and some, including Chrysler, have already paid up millions in overdue bills.

Monday’s developments came three days after an estimated 2,000 people took to the streets downtown to protest the water shutoffs. Among them was “Avengers” actor Mark Ruffalo, who appeared unexpectedly, calling on others to join the demonstration.

Racist Conservatives Pick Ted Cruz and Ben Carson in Presidential Straw Poll

1 Comment

This is from Godfather Politics.

There is no doubt in my mind the DemocRats and their toadies in the press will use the race card.

That is all they have.

 

 

Conservatives prove once again that they’re racists. Look what they just did, positive proof that Republicans and conservatives are at heart racially motivated in their political decisions.

No doubt the Democrats will pull the ubiquitous race card again by making up some story about why the poll results turned out the way they did:

 

“Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has won another straw poll, boosting his national profile and elevating his name among potential 2016 presidential contenders.

*****

“Cruz finished in first place in the annual conference’s presidential straw poll at 30.33%. Dr. Ben Carson, a Fox News commentator and conservative activist, finished in second with 29.38% while Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, was third with 10.43%.”

A Black and Hispanic pulled in 60 percent of vote among attendees at the Republican Leadership Conference.

The racism of conservatives runs deep. That’s why they elected Gov. Bobby Jindal in Louisiana, Gov. Nikki Haley in South Carolina, and the Junior Senator Tim Scott also from South Carolina.

No doubt the Democrats will say that Cruz and Carson are GOP puppets, racial window dressing just to appeal to minority voters in order to win elections. Liberals don’t care much for racial equality. What they really want is political singularity that sees the State as a benefactor, the creation of a new form of slavery where everybody is equal — equally poor.

How do you think this GOP presidential ticket would do in November 2016? Dr. Carson doesn’t have any political experience. In most of the articles What I’ve read about President Obama when he was running for president in 2008 is that many political pundits spent more time on his “stirring keynote address at a Democratic National Convention” and his “eloquence and hopeful approach to politics” more than his political experience.

As we now know, Obama’s “eloquence” has does wonders for our struggling economy. His policies have been some of the most destructive our nation has ever experienced.

Anyway, who needs experience? Those with experience get us into wars, ruin education, and wreck the economy, and devalue our freedoms.

The vast majority of conservatives don’t care a thing about race or national origin. It’s policies that we care about.

“Cruz’s address was among the most popular. He was interrupted several times by cheers and standing ovations — especially when he told the crowd he was ‘convinced’ the Republican Party would retake control of Congress in the midterm elections this fall.

“Cruz won the Values Voter summit’s presidential straw poll last fall, and came in second to Sen. Paul in this year’s straw poll at the big Conservative Political Action Conference.

“The potential 2016 presidential candidate said that across the country, people tell him that they are scared – of losing their freedom, losing their constitutional rights, and bankrupting their children and grandchildren.”

It’s not about skin color, race, or national origin; it’s about policies.

In addition to ridding Congress of political destroyers from the Democrat Party, it’s also important to do a bit of GOP housecleaning:

“‘The problem with the Republican Party is that we have people in the party who don’t believe in the very foundational principles of our party,’ said [Rick] Santorum, going on to criticize the party’s ‘moderate’ funders, an ‘expert political class’ from ‘dark-blue communities’ in major cities.”

The people Santorum is talking about are all white![1] Once again, it’s policy, not race.
