Tavis Smiley: Black voters might get on board with Trump

Leave a comment

This is from The Hill.

The Establishment Republicans and most pollsters say Trump can not beat the Hildabeast.

Yet Leftist Tavis Smiley is encouraging blacks not to vote for Hillary, but vote for Trump instead.

PBS Host Tavis Smiley said black voters might get on board with Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

In a piece published in USA Today on Wednesday, Smiley notes that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton received overwhelming support from African-Americans on Super Tuesday.

But, he said, that doesn’t mean she has the black vote “on lock down.”

“Something tells me that if Donald Trump is indeed the Republican nominee, it might be a miscalculation for Democrats to assume that black voters are a lock for their nominee, even with the first black president and Barack Obamaboth campaigning for her,” he wrote.

Smiley noted in the piece that Clinton has been endorsed by members of the Congressional Black Caucus, black mayors and other black elected officials. She also has received “not so subtle signs of support from Obama White House insiders and a few shout-outs from President Obama himself.”

But in this election cycle, he said conventional wisdom does not apply.

“I have been taken by myriad conversations I’ve had with black folk who don’t find those comments by Trump necessarily or automatically disqualifying,” he wrote, referring to Trump’s anti-immigration and anti-Muslim attacks.

He also brought up Trump’s refusal last weekend to disavow the KKK and David Duke.

“In the coming days, we will see whether his initial refusal last Sunday on CNN to disavow the endorsement of David Duke, the Ku Klux Klan and white supremacy might anger black voters,” he wrote.

“Interestingly, almost two months ago, CNN ran a story about a white supremacist group doing robocalls for Trump in Iowa. He didn’t denounce them then and seems to not have suffered for it.”

In conversations with some of Trump’s black friends, Smiley called their critique of the front-runner “highly nuanced.”

“Men and women from black America’s most privileged class, either genuinely like this guy or they’re afraid of being caught in his social media meat grinder,” he wrote.

He also said it was surprising the a billionaire has convinced “hardworking, everyday people that he is their savior.”

“Ultimately, Trump’s policies might not be that different from what Mitt Romney’s would have been, but they apparently sound different to working class voters. For many black voters, I think it’s fair to say that, at the moment, at least, Trump is no Romney,” he wrote.

“Consequently, there is no reason to believe that if he is his party’s nominee, Donald Trump wouldn’t make a serious play for black voters. Who knows how much he might skim? In a close election, it might not take much.”

Bill O’Reilly Drops 50-Megaton Truth Bomb on Guest Who Claims It’s ‘Hunting Season on Black Men’

2 Comments

This is from Independent Journal Review.

Shame on you  Bill for confusing poor Tavis with the facts.

Tavis as a good liberal never bothers with the facts as facts do not fit the lefts template America is racist. 

 

Radio talk show host Tavis Smiley appeared on The O’Reilly Factor on Wednesday to weigh in on a New York grand jury’s refusal to indict police officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner.

While O’Reilly agreed with Smiley that the death of Garner (who was illegally selling cigarettes on the street at the time of the confrontation) was controversial, they parted ways when Smiley charged that white police officers indiscriminately target blacks.

O’Reilly’s response? Facts and statistics.

Smiley: “There is no respect for the humanity and the dignity for black life in this country.”

O’Reilly: “Do you know how many blacks were killed by police by gunfire last year?”

Smiley: “Off the top of my head, I don’t.” (Which begs the question, on what basis did he make the charge?)

O’Reilly: “The number is 123. Do you know how many whites were killed? 326. There are 43 million-plus black Americans — 123 were killed by police gunfire. There isn’t an epidemic of this. … But when it happens it’s extremely troubling.”

Regardless of the facts, Smiley persisted, saying it’s “open season, hunting season” on blacks. Speaking of facts, here are a few more:

  • Police killings of blacks are down 70% in last 50 years
  • In 2013, blacks committed 5,375 murders
  • In 2013, whites committed 4,396 murders
  • Whites are 63% of the population, blacks are 13%

Also, from 1980 through 2008, 93% of black murders were committed by other blacks. And while blacks constitute 13% of the population, they committed 49% of total murders for the same period.

Following the shooting death of Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson, signs proclaiming “black lives matter” have been prominent at protests across the country. Where are those same signs in the streets of Chicago?

5 SNARKY THINGS ABOUT TRAYVON:

This is from Joe For America.

I am offering this without comment.

 

FIVE SNARKY THINGS TO SAY ABOUT TRAYVON:

Memorize these and life will get easier when talking to some dope about the Zimmerman trial:

 

black child

They keep calling Trayvon a child. Then why was he outside after dark? Why wasn’t he getting his bath and ready for his bedtime story?

 

zimmerman injury

If Zimmerman was a racist and he murdered Trayvon because he was black, why didn’t he just walk up and shoot him? Why did Zimmerman wait until he was on his back having his face beaten in?

 

obama laughObama and the administration could care less about this trial except for that it distracts from their shenanigans and failures. When was the last time you heard the words “Benghazi” or “Fast & Furious”? Even FOX has been duped.

About the verdict, Tavis Smiley said; “Arm every black person in America, and then let’s see what the NRA has to say…” Does this mean Tavis Smiley wants all blacks in America wiped out? According to statistics, they aren’t going to go and kill whites, you know.

 

And Finally:
If George Zimmerman was black, none of us would have ever even heard of the name Trayvon Martin.black on black record
