Hell hath no fury like a former liberal woman.
Look, there are racists, sexists, etc. who discriminate on both sides of the aisle. But too much last year we heard time and time again how Republicans are generally racist. First off, some people CLEARLY need to get their facts straight on the history of racism when it comes to Democrats vs. Republicans. Second, when you look at percentages of these actual racists it really is a small, small percentage over the entire U.S. population. The idea that people in the U.S. are still living in the 1950s and that there has been zero progress in race relations is to have a manipulated, naive mindset. To start, I’d recommend reading the following PDF of this newsletter out of the National Black Republican Association. Here are some things you’ll learn:
You’ll also learn the truth when it comes to far-left liberals who taut themselves as being the party who represent minorities but then turn around and slap down minority achievements when they are done in the context of the Republican party who has typically fought for rights and advancement of blacks.
Democrats claim that they care about diversity, but readily demean black professionals who do not toe the Democratic Party’s liberal line, slandering blacks as “Uncle Toms”, “Sellouts” and “House N-word”, including Dr. Condoleezza Rice, General Colin Powel, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Justice Janice Rogers Brown and former Lieutenant Governor Michael Steele. With impunity, Democrat Senator Ted Kennedy called black judicial nominees “Neanderthals”. Democrat Senator Harry Reid slurred Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas as an incompetent Negro who could not write good English. “Slap at Thomas stinks of racism,” was the headline of the New York Daily News’ December 7, 2004 editorial.
Hurricane Katrina is another far-leftist’s dream soapbox to hop up on, declaring Republicans hate black people. Minorities listen to people like uber-ego and intellectual rap star Kanye West and just take what they say without looking into the merit of those smears. Take for instance what went on in Louisiana with Hurricane Katrina response efforts. It was Democrat officials in charge at the State and Local levels and those same Democrats did not propoerly work with the federal level to communicate assistance needs nor did the heed the advice of federal authorities that told them to get the hell out of dodge. Also to the side here is a picture off all the empty buses Mayor Nagin could have used to evacuate people out of New Orleans before the hurricane hit.
In fact, it was the Democrats in charge of Louisiana and New Orleans who failed to act to protect black citizens. Democrat officials refused to implement the emergency evacuation plan and did not pre-position emergency supplies and personnel in the Super Dome. Over 1,000 buses were allowed to become ruined by the flood, and the Red Cross was prevented from bringing in truck loads of food and supplies into the city. The 1898 Posse Comitatus Act precludes a president from going into a state without an invitation from the governor, and the Louisiana Democrat Governor Kathleen Blanco withheld her consent until it was too late for effective federal help. Democrats blocked Bush’s 2001 energy bill which had $540 million for levee repairs.
I think my frustration is best epitomized with Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, the two pillars of minority “representation” from the Democratic party. Do you ever notice that for nearly 30 years Sharpton and Jackson have been claiming to fight the good fight for their fellow black men and women yet while their individual wealth continues to flourish the people they are “fighting” for remain around or below the poverty line?
The only fighting they are doing is to invoke a false, psychological class warfare to keep their constituents voting along the Democratic party lines. They are not interested in helping minority businesses nor telling the truth when it comes to those Republicans who do propose solutions to help create wealth-building opportunities for minorities.
All Americans received tax cuts under Bush’s tax cut plan—108 million average families received $2,500. Over3.8 million more poor people were freed from the tax rolls entirely, and poor blacks received an additional gift of$1,000 per child plus $1,658 per family under the Earned Income Tax Credit program. “Tax cuts for the rich” is a deceptive Democratic Party talking point.
I think there is a problem when people are refusing to vote for or consider a Republican candidates based on the false idea that “Republicans don’t like black people.” This is something I heard while watching Alexandra Pelosi’s “documentary” (snickers), last night, Right America: Feeling Wronged. Here was one scenario, several black homeless man are waiting in line at a church/soup kitchen to get free food, shelter, etc. While in line, Pelosi shoots the women McCain-supporter, in charge of managing this church’s soup kitchen, promoting voting for Senator John McCain (R-AZ) as president. Many of the black men in line give the following responses “I’m not voting for him because he’s not black.” and “I’m not voting because he is Republican. Republicans don’t represent blacks.” Funny, how first those comments are not deemed as offesive by Pelosi, but also that nobody points out the obvious – that those suppposed ”Republicans that don’t represent blacks” are the same ones setting up soup kitchens and other faith-based community outreach activities that provide those same men with free food and shelter. Hmmmm… last time I checked I didn’t see too many atheist-based community food banks OR how does California rank in terms of giving back to the poor. Just saying. And as for George Bush, the man Jay-Z likes to say isn’t his president among other colorful words. Well, Mr. Z, here’s some interesting facts:
Bush has also spent $18.8 million for Historically Black Colleges, $24 billion for small business loans and grants, and $10 billion for Medicaid, the state-federal health insurance for the poor. Since 2001, access to free community health centers has been extended to 2.2 million poor people. In May 2003, Bush provided $15 billion, three times more money than President Bill Clinton, to fight AIDS in Africa and the Caribbean.
UPDATE: Some more dose of reality from Zo (visit MachoSauce Productions)
The ranting and raving of a woman formally brainwashed under the liberal agenda. Through investigation, commentary and sarcasm about government, this woman is breaking free of the hypocritical liberal party that tries to manipulate women into believing only they can represent women’s rights. Get informed, get free, get Un-Liberaled! This blog does not endorse any particular candidate or party - although if I did, I most likely wouldn’t endorse a liberal candidate. For instance, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) or as I like to call her Smancy Pelotox would not get my vote. Comprende? Good. Hope you enjoy the rants! :)
