For more than 50 years, the black community has been the wholly owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party. That may be changing. In spite of the overwhelmingly liberal voting patterns of black voters, they are an essentially conservative community. Americans of African descent are more pro-life and pro-family than the average white voter and as conservative on social issues as any white evangelical. Democrats have managed to monopolize the black vote in spite of the vast chasm between the two on social issues. This philosophical difference has become more pronounced in the past 20 years,
965% will still vote for obama. Yes, some will stay home but they will not vote for Romney. They are in the dems back pocket and the dems know it. I believe that obama could be molesting a five year old black boy on a stage with an audience and they will still vote for him. It is about the free stuff that the magic negro is sending their way. It is a black issue and only a black issue. It is much easier to give stuff away then it is to actually work these people to reject their culture of being poorly educated, out of wedlock births, drugs and alcohol, the gang life, murder etc. Have you ever heard obama say that staying ignorant, producing children you cannot afford and will neglect, doing drugs and toting around guns is wrong and unpatriotic. No, he just slams those who have chosen a different path and tells them shame because they do not want to give Washington more of their hard earned money.
What's really sickening is the left has cashed in on the idea of standing up for the small guy.hat really goes on is they create programs that lead to hiring expensive government workers who are driving states in the hole.Instead of blaming their own greed for budget shortfalls,they create villain taxpayers to target for money.
If liberals had any sense,they would vote for Romney to bring jobs and revenues back to protect their cushy lives going forward.
Let's not paint all the Blacks with the same brush. Mr. Jackson is a very courageous and articulate man. I saw his appearance at the National Press Club and it was awesome. He gets it. Having taught in a minority school for years, I know that many minorities are God-fearing and want the same things as anyone else. Many value hard work. I'm not preaching, just saying. The problem comes in when older and bitter relatives or members of the NAACP come in and remind them of the segregated years and how bad it was. These facts weigh upon them and if they choose to vote otherwise, many are ridiculed. They should look to Chicago to see how their youths are being destroyed!
If Blacks vote for Obama, they are voting to return to their roots, Economic dependence on the Government is simply a different type of 'slavery'. They can only improve themselves with a decent education and a chance to advance, not dependent on Government entitlements. As a sidenote, its also time the community leaders in Chicago demanded that the Mayor take steps to stop the violence. That's a reason to protest.
May God bless you Bishop for your courage and conviction. Blacks are certainly NOT alone in their blind loyalty to political party. I couldn't count the number of white, "conservative", "Christian" people who still vote for the democrat (any democrat, every democrat) because they "are for the workin' man". It doesn't matter what the skin color; many people simply cannot ever confront the truth that they have been wrong in their past judgements. They're much more comfortable with continuing to live the contradictions between what they profess, and what they vote for.
“I voted for Barack because he was black. ‘Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them … That’s American politics, pure and simple. [Obama's] message didn’t mean [bleep] to me.”
Individually blacks are every bit as conservative as any Tea Party member. But something happens when they gather together its like the Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton mind set takes over the group. Collectively they are paranoid that whites will do whatever to destroy them. The CRT has taken over the black community to such an extent that most of them hate all white people. Oh well not much can be done about that. I wouldn't put too much into this article.
Quote by: Booker T. Washington (1856-1915) African American political leader, educator and author Date: 1911 “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public..”
I've pointed out many times to blacks I've spoken with that if they went by their hearts and minds they would join the Tea Party movement. Unfortunately, Democrat propaganda has poisoned many of them and it was wasted breath. Others were interested which is a good sign. Unfortunately there are many people, black and white, who are content to take the lazy way and let others think and provide for them.
Anyone notice the big deal in the 'news' about the 50th anniversary of Meredith, civil rights and Ole' Miss? It's been going on down here for about a week. Going back, digging up all the old news reels, attempting to inflame passions again. Mostly aimed toward people too young to remember. Yes, it happened. It was a bad time, maybe the beginning of the end of a bad time. A bad time long over. Mighty convenient to dig it all up just at election time. But NO media mentions that Democrats were the party of choice in the South during those years.
Not so fast, I have a black co-worker and he is as much against Obama as I am. He is middle class with I would venture to guess a six figure salary. I can say that because we do the same job and I make six figures. I think there is an awakening happening in the black community. If they stay home, it's a plus for Romney.
Joshua Strange will never forget the girl he met in May 2011. Both were underclassmen at Alabama´s Auburn University when a common acquaintance introduced them. "We instantly became attached at the hip and did everything together," she recalled six months later. "I rather quickly moved into his place. . . . Everything was great until pretty much June 29." That night, an intimate encounter in Mr. Strange´s bed went wrong. She called police, who detained him for questioning. She said she had awakened to find him forcing himself on her; he said the sexual activity was consensual and initiated by
Sen. Ted Cruz isn’t on the ballot next year, but as candidates meet Monday’s filing deadline for Republican primaries, he appears ever-present. Cruz’s tea party-fueled, come-from-behind trouncing of David Dewhurst in the Senate race last year has provided him a gravitational pull that is moving GOP candidates further right and producing scores of would-be first-time officeholders. “You’ve got two things happening,” said Republican political consultant Bill Miller. One of them is the “Cruz phenomenon, and he is the phenom at this moment,” he said. “The other is that conservatives believe that if they’re going to succeed — with the Democratic administration in Washington
Six months after the Internal Revenue Service´s inspector general revealed that the tax-collection agency had been targeting conservative organizations for added scrutiny and delaying their applications for tax-exempt status, the IRS has proposed new rules for handling political activity by nonprofits. The proposed rules would plunge the agency deeper into political regulation. The rules would upset more than 50 years of settled law and practice by limiting the ability of certain tax-exempt nonprofits, organized under Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code, to conduct nonpartisan voter registration and voter education. Such organizations would be forbidden to leave records of officeholder votes
Fact: The IRS targeted conservative and tea party groups requesting tax-exempt status in the run-up to the 2012 presidential election. That’s a fact. Congress held hearings — embarrassing hearings. Three top Internal Revenue Service officials resigned. No heads rolled, but for the Obama administration, and the lawless Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., that amounted to a major scandal. Even White House spokesman Jay “Circus” Carney called the IRS’ actions “inappropriate.” Fact. But President Obama, in an interview last week with sycophant Chris Matthews, now says the entire scandal was made up by the media. “When we do things right, they don’t get
Bob Dole once made a droll crack to the New York Times about Newt Gingrich, then the speaker of the House. “Gingrich’s staff has these five file cabinets, four big ones and this little tiny one,” Dole said. “Number one is ‘Newt’s ideas.’ Number two, ‘Newt’s ideas.’ Number three, number four, ‘Newt’s ideas.’ The little one is ‘Newt’s Good Ideas.’” Here’s one from Gingrich’s little file: he has been pushing back against some of the more thoughtless conservative reactions to the death of Nelson Mandela. The backlash has ranged from the merely tone-deaf—think of Rick Santorum drawing comparisons between Obamacare and
More than any other subject, apolitical sorts will ask me about Fox News. “Is it really crazy?” my British friends inquire, flashing the sort of smile that a botanist might exhibit while examining a newly discovered species of moss. “Is it, like, really right wing?” The question has always slightly irritated me, showing as it does that the considerable success that the Left has had in demonizing its opposition extends even across the Atlantic. Certainly, both Fox’s commentary and its ostensibly straight reporting are marked by the right-leaning proclivities of its owners. But the notion that the network is unique in
The good news, if you want to call it that, is that roughly 1.6 million Americans have enrolled in ObamaCare so far. The not-so-good news is that 1.46 million of them actually signed up for Medicaid. If that trend continues, it could bankrupt both federal and state governments. Medicaid is already America’s third-largest government program, trailing only Social Security and Medicare, as a proportion of the federal budget. Almost 8 cents out of every dollar that the federal government spends goes to Medicaid. That’s more than $265 billion per year. Indeed, already Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid account for 48% of federal spending.
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
