Media blackout of black Chicago protesters marching against Obama

They can’t be fooled forever!  Many blacks are waking up and realizing the President of ‘Hope’ has abandoned them.  From Breitbart:  “Not all blacks tow the racial line and  vote for Obama just because he’s black. Meet the Broke Party, who could be members of the Tea Party. They, like most US citizens want the American Dream, not poverty. They don’t want to be used by liberals like Obama who want to keep them on the welfare plantation as vote slaves. The jerks at ABC? They just hide out.”

Rep Allen West: Abortion threatens the future of black Americans

On Capitol Hill last week, Rep. Allen West gathered a group of pro-life  activists together to get out the message that abortion threatens the  future of the black Americans. “Today, we’re talking about the future,”  West said. “It’s not just the $16 trillion in debt that we’re about to  put on our children and grandchildren. It’s the fact that we’re not even allowing our children and grandchildren to be born.”

 

 

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) – Adding to the argument that abortion threatens one sector of American society over others, Catherine Davis, president of The Restoration Project pointed out to the great racial disparity of women currently getting abortions.Davis said that according to the Centers for Disease Control, statistics prove that while blacks represent about 13 percent of the U.S. population, 35 percent of abortions are performed on black women.

“There is one organization whose mission is one of population control that greatly influences this disproportionate rate – that’s Planned Parenthood,” Davis said. Davis, along with other panelists, called for Congress to stop funding the organization. “They are the largest abortion provider, performing more than 329,000 abortions a year.”

Rep. West is an ardent critic of taxpayer funding for the nation’s largest provider and promoter of abortion, Planned Parenthood. West, one of two African American Republicans currently serving in Congress, has called attention to the disproportionately high abortion rate in the African American community. “It is absolutely offensive to me that Planned Parenthood is located in so many of our black communities,” West previously stated at a town hall meeting.

Other speakers at the event included Ryan Bomberger, founder of the Radiance Foundation. Bomberger’s mother was raped but carried her pregnancy to later give Bomberger up for adoption.

Bomberger’s biography states that, “His life defies the myth of the ‘unwanted’ child as he was adopted, loved and has flourished.”

West says that while cutting the federal debt and deficit, limited government, and a strong defense are vital to a strong America, the social pillars are also important.

“We cannot forget our traditional cultural values: the strength of marriage, the strength of family, the protection of the unborn,” West said.

ALLEN WEST: Black Americans should vote for Mitt Romney

Illustration Obama Crushes by Alexander Hunter for The Washington Times

I am always amazed when Black Americans vote Democrat because ‘they have always been Democrats’.  Why?  Wasn’t Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. a Republican?  I applaud the growing number of Black Conservatives and the values they represent.  For another take on this mindset please read the following article by Rep. Allen B. West via The Washington Times.  He considers Obama’s hand-outs a form of slavery.

America is no doubt the greatest country the world has ever known. Our citizens have the opportunity to be anything they want to be, worship as they please and live as they please. We are truly free.

Still, Americans are suffering. They have lost their jobs, they have lost their home, and in many situations, they have lost hope.

For the black community, the situation is even more dire.

Black unemployment hovers around 14 percent, compared to 8 percent unemployment overall. For black teenagers, the number more than doubles, as 38 percent of black teens are unemployed.

It is not just the undereducated black Americans who are suffering — 6.6 percent of black Americans with at least a bachelor’s degree are unemployed, a rate 50 percent higher than the overall unemployment rate for those with a four-year college degree.

Since 2007, black median household income has declined by 11 percent — the largest decline of all major racial and ethnic groups.

In 2011, the poverty rate among black Americans was 27.5 percent. The poverty rate among blacks living in families headed by women is 41 percent.

President Obama’s programs continue to pour billions into black communities across the country in hopes of curing well-documented socioeconomic problems, including failing schools and inadequate housing, rampant crime and drug abuse, black-on-black killings, unemployment and more. Still, despite the courageous efforts of many local institutions, agencies, school leaders, grass-roots organizations and community residents, the problems remain, and in many places have become worse.

It will take new ideas and new voices to find solutions. It will take a president who is committed to policies of economic freedom as opposed to economic dependency. Mitt Romney’s belief in basic conservative principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, individual industry leading to self-sufficiency and his beliefs about equality of opportunity will revitalize the black community. Mr. Romney’s policies would enable urban people to empower themselves and, ultimately, become self-sufficient.

When it comes to education, black children are 17 percent of students nationwide, but they are 42 percent of the students in our worst-performing schools. Mr. Romney supports empowering parents of at-risk students in the inner cities to escape failing schools by allowing federal dollars to follow children to the school of their choice.

Many black-owned businesses struggle to gain access to capital that would enable expansion or fund operating costs. Sixty percent of startups are in the white community. Compare that with just 9 percent of startups coming from the black community.

Mr. Romney will reform regulatory policies that can help black-owned businesses increase and thrive. He will reform Dodd-Frank and allow more money to be accessible to responsible black community banks so they can get money into the hands of responsible black entrepreneurs. Lower capital gains taxes and dividends also will incentivize growth in the black community.

Mr. Romney also plans to revisit the concept of urban economic zones, an idea from the late congressman and HUD Secretary Jack Kemp and Reagan economist Art Laffer. Enterprise zones are geographic areas of high unemployment that qualify for special tax breaks.

What Mr. Romney understands is that communities are best served when they’re empowered to care for themselves. The more they come to rely on government checks, the less they learn to rely on their own ability and ingenuity. As my mother always told me, “Self-esteem comes from doing estimable things.”

Conversely, Mr. Obama’s appetite for ever-increasing redistributionary handouts is the most insidious form of slavery remaining in the world today and does not promote economic freedom.

Still, it is easier to convince people that government should be doing something for them that it currently isn’t doing than to convince them that government shouldn’t be doing something for them that it currently is.

More than 95 percent of black voters voted Democratic in the last election. I am hoping we can change this status quo. When you invest your money, you diversify. You don’t put it in one single account. Black Americans need to invest their political capital so they have a voice across the entire political spectrum. If we don’t, the black community will be taken for granted and risk becoming politically irrelevant.

A recent poll showed the percentage of black Americans who have a “strongly positive” view of Mr. Obama has slipped from 83 percent to 58 percent. Those numbers show black Americans are paying attention, and they don’t like what they see.

I grew up in inner-city Atlanta, and I can tell you the most conservative people I know are my neighbors in the black community. It isn’t just in Atlanta. Thirty-three percent of Americans in the black community self-identify as conservatives. They are anti-abortion, and they believe marriage should be between a man and a woman.

Black Americans need to vote their values in November, and they will find themselves more aligned with Mr. Romney and the Republican Party. It is time for the “Party of Lincoln” to re-connect with black America.

Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Admits Obama’s Blackness Trumps His Failed Record

By Crystal Wright via Townhall

The Congressional Black Caucus was formed in 1971 to advocate on behalf of black Americans and hold lawmakers and the President of the United States accountable for policies adversely impacting blacks. The CBC is often referred to as the “conscience of the Congress.”

Considering the caucus’ history, it’s shocking CBC Chairman Rep. Emmanuel Cleaver admitted to the Root the CBC has been reluctant to criticize President Obama because he’s black. Never mind black unemployment under Obama for the past three years has been nearly double the national average and hit a record high of 16% in 2011. Black unemployment hasn’t been that high since 1984. I guess Cleaver also isn’t concerned black wealth has also plummeted under Obama. According to Pew Research Center, the average black family’s wealth is about $5,600 compared with $113,000 for whites.

According to Cleaver, “pride” about the president’s blackness trumps any concerns over current 14% black unemployment for members of the CBC. Cleaver said “if we had a white president we’d be marching around the White House.”

As the CBC celebrates their annual Legislative Conference this week in DC,  it’s more than insulting that Rep. Cleaver can chuckle about the CBC giving Obama a pass on accountability for his failed agenda with blacks and all Americans.  Cleaver’s glib reaction is particularly disturbing when you consider in 1970 the Democratic Select Committee, which later became the CBC, was outraged  by President Richard Nixon’s refusal to meet with them. Nixon’s snub appeared to be the impetus for group’s name change a year later.

In 1971, the CBC boycotted Nixon’s State of the Union because he refused to meet with them and  sent him a list of 60 policy recommendations, the link to which has been conspicuously removed from the CBC website.  At least a year ago or two ago it was there. Perhaps Cleaver removed it because he didn’t want people asking why the CBC isn’t treating Obama with the same outrage.

MSNBC abandons GOP convention during every speech by a minority (And Chris Matthews calls RNC racist?)

By  via The Daily Caller

 

One of the left’s favorite attacks on the Republican Party is  that it is the party of old white people, devoid of diversity and probably  racist.

 

 

 

 

 

If you were watching MSNBC’s coverage of the Republican National Convention  in Tampa on Tuesday night, you might believe those assertions, since missing  from the coverage was nearly every ethnic minority that spoke during Tuesday’s  festivities.

 

 

 

In lieu of airing speeches from former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis, a black  American; Mia Love, a black candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives  from Utah; and Texas senatorial hopeful Ted Cruz, a Latino American, MSNBC opted  to show commentary anchored by Rachel Maddow from Rev. Al Sharpton, Ed Schultz,  Chris Matthews, Chris Hayes and Steve Schmidt.

 

 

Throughout this convention, Matthews has  accused the Republicans of playing dog-whistle racist politics while on  scene in Tampa. It isn’t clear, however, if Matthews will hurl accusations of  racism at Davis, Love or Cruz for speeches his network failed to broadcast.

He has blasted Obama for gutting the Welfare Reform Bill, but please don’t tell Chrissy Hissy Matthews – he will call Davis a racist!

Allen West: Democrats Are ‘Afraid of Black Conservatives’

By Greg McDonald via Newsmax

Rep. Allen West lashed out Thursday against what he described as race baiting by Democrats determined to defeat his re-election bid this year and keep Mitt Romney out of the White House.

Speaking with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, the Florida Republican described a super PAC ad depicting him punching white women as racist because it portrays him as what he characterized as a “stereotypical” violent, black male.

“It has me with a gold tooth. And I think you can see from my smile, I don’t have a gold tooth,” West told Hannity. “I think that that is quite stereotypical. And then of course having me as an African-American male, punching a white senior woman and then another white woman, that is definitely not in concert with the values that I stand for.”

The ad being run by a political action committee in support of his Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy goes after West for “voting to end Medicare as we know it,” cutting women’s healthcare, and supporting a GOP budget that “has mauled middle-class families.”

“I don’t believe in violence against women. But this is what happens, Sean, when you’re in the age of [President Barack] Obama and the age [of ] the liberal progressives,” West told Hannity. “You cannot talk about the issues, they cannot run on any type of record, you cannot talk about the economy, the debt, and deficit.

“So these are the type of attacks against your character, the lies that they put out there,” he added.

West also recalled the attacks from Democrats after he made a speech kicking off his re-election campaign earlier this year, in which he said the growth in the nation’s food stamp program was “a new form of enslavement.”

“Of course, everyone on the left went absolutely idiotic and tried to condemn me about bringing up the specter of slavery. You know, it’s . . . hypocrisy,” West said.

He also noted that if Romney’s GOP running mate Paul Ryan had said what Vice President Joe Biden did about Republican policies putting black Americans “back in chains,” the Democrats would have gone “absolutely apoplectic.”

West said he believes the Democrats and the Obama campaign have adopted a strategy to go  after “black conservatives” in the Republican Party, including Condoleezza Rice and others because “we intimidate them.”

“They’re afraid of us because there are more of us that are able to stand up on our own and talk about the failures of liberal progressive policies, especially toward the black community,” West said. “They . . . definitely don’t want to have individuals that can stand up on their own.”

West said Democrats are playing the race card because “they want to make sure that they get that large voting electorate out there from the different communities.”

“They look at us as collectives, not as individuals,” he continued. “And you have to understand that this is going to continue to happen. And the president emanating from Chicago, it’s all about Chicago-style politics, it’s about fear and intimidation, it’s about lies and deceit.”

NAACP Emanuel Cleaver – You Should Be Fighting Racism Not Perpetuating It!

Great article and video by Kira Davis on Mitt Romney’s recent attendance at NAACP meeting in Houston.  Imagine, Romney spoke to a group of AMERICANS, not a group of Blacks.  Funny, Obama was conspicuously absent.  BTW Romney received a standing ovation after his speech – a small detail the MSM failed to report!  (H/T Bill Norwood)

By Kira Davis

“I don’t know who’s advising Gov.Romney from the African America perspective but I would give him an F- on talking about Obamacare in terms of repealing it, not to this audience….he should never have gone there in the first place.”

Rep Emmanuel Cleaver said this on MSNBC today (it doesn’t matter who the reporter was; I’ve decided to treat MSNBC like they treat Blacks as a monolithic group of lemmings with no individual opinions or personalities). He was referring to Romney’s visit to the NAACP. Now, I know I should really stop being shocked to hear our black Democrat “leaders” talk like this, but sometimes I just can’t help myself.

Cleaver wonders aloud who is advising Gov. Romney from the African American perspective. I wasn’t aware that white people needed to be “advised” before they addressed black people. Heaven forbid Romney actually just look at these people as….Americans! Mon Dieu! You mean to tell me this man actually went into a room full of black people and was honest about his opinions and intentions?

Cleaver also gives Romney an F- for criticizing Obama’s policy to “this audience”.  ”This audience”?  Are they anything like “those people”? Just checking. Because I thought the NAACP was committed to fighting racism, not perpetuating it by suggesting that we blacks are only able to comprehend certain messages and not able to make decisions for ourselves about what we do and do not agree with.

Romney deserves respect for wading in where he knew he would not be wanted. Black liberals complain all the time that conservatives and Republicans don’t engage them enough in the political realm, and then when they do go directly into our communities to debate and conversate they’re treated like crap. Then liberals wonder all over again why those nasty, racist Republicans don’t have the stones to bring their message into our communities. Well, Mr. Cleaver – here’s a man with stones. He came to speak, not pander. I know you and your ilk at the Black Caucus and NAACP have made pandering an art, but you should at least have a little respect for a man who  is willing to be honest about his views and not temper those views simply based on the color of the people he is addressing.

You should be embarrassed. I would be embarrassed for you, except that this diarrhea of the mouth you so often suffer from is a goldmine for bloggers like me, and only makes the argument for our side of the political spectrum that much stronger. So spew away. New media will be here to pick up every word.

And no, this message was not approved by the NAACP. Racism!

The Strange-Strange World of Eric Holder

I don’t have the time or the inclination, but somebody could build an entire website around Eric Holder’s apparent conflicts with reality.

 

 

It seems like almost everything he does is totally alien to the average American.  He seems to find it offensive that several states want to purge the voter rolls of people who are dead. It infuriates him that several states actually want to send illegal aliens home, instead of allowing them to infiltrate our country and live at our expense.

He does not seem overly concerned about the deaths of at least 200 Mexicans and two American Border Patrol Agents because of an illegal operation people in his department conceived and then bungled, in fact he believes trying to find out what happened is a racist attack on him personally.  While we’re on the subject of racism, he…

Bell, via Kagan, on Critical Race Theory: The Constitution Is the Problem

by Joel B. Pollak via Breitbart


In November 1985, the Harvard Law Review published an article by Derrick Bell that was a “classic” in the development of Critical Race Theory. The article was edited by then-student Elena Kagan, and was cited by Prof. Charles Ogletree in support of her nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court by President Barack Obama in 2010. The article makes clear that Critical Race Theory sees the U.S. Constitution as a form of “original sin”–a view later embraced by Obama as a state legislator, and reflected in his actions and appointments. The following is an excerpt from the non-fiction portion of the article; much of what follows is a fictional story that Bell intended as a parable of racial “fantasy.” (99 Harv. L. Rev. 4)

At the nation’s beginning, the framers saw more clearly than is perhaps possible in our more enlightened and infinitely more complex time the essential need to accept what has become the American contradiction.  The framers made a conscious, though unspoken, sacrifice of the rights of some in the belief that this forfeiture was necessary to secure the rights of others in a society embracing, as its fundamental principle, the equality of all.  And thus the framers, while speaking through the Constitution in an unequivocal voice, at once promised freedom for whites and condemned blacks to slavery….

The Constitution has survived for two centuries and, despite earnest efforts by committed people, the contradiction remains, shielded and nurtured through the years by myth. This contradiction is the root reason for the inability of black people to gain legitimacy — that is, why they are unable to be taken seriously when they are serious and why they retain a subordinate status as a group that even impressive proofs of individual competence cannot overcome. Contradiction, shrouded by myth, remains a significant factor in blacks’ failure to obtain meaningful relief against historic racial injustice.

The myths that today and throughout history have nurtured the original constitutional contradiction and thus guided racial policy are manifold, operating like dreams below the level of language and conscious thought.  Much of what is called the law of civil rights — an inexact euphemism for racial law — has a mythological or fairy-tale quality that is based, like the early fairy tales, less on visions of gaiety and light than on an ever-present threat of disaster. We are as likely to deny as to concede these myths, and we may well deny some and admit others. They are not single stories or strands.  Rather, they operate in a rich texture that constantly changes, concealing content while elaborating their misleading meanings.

When recognized, these myths often take the form of the missing link between the desire for some goal of racial justice and its realization. Black civil rights lawyers propound the myth that this case or that court may provide the long-sought solution to racial division. They fantasize and strategize about hazy future events that may bring us a long-envisioned racial equality. White people cling to the belief that racial justice may be realized without any loss of their privileged position. Even at this late date, some find new comfort in the old saw that “these things” — meaning an end to racial discrimination — “take time.” The psychological motivations behind the myths perpetrated by people of both races can be sufficiently complex to engender book-length explanations by psychiatrists. Racial stereotypes are also part of this suffocating web of myth that forms the rationale of inaction, but it is not necessary to catalogue here the myriad stereotypes about black people that have served since the days of slavery to ease the consciences of the thoughtful and buoy the egos of the ignorant.

The contemporary myths that confuse and inhibit current efforts to achieve racial justice have informed all of our racial history. Myth alone, not history, supports the statements of those who claim that the slavery contradiction was finally resolved by a bloody civil war. The Emancipation Proclamation was intended to serve the interests of the Union, not the blacks, a fact that Lincoln himself admitted. The Civil War amendments, while more vague in language and ambiguous in intent, actually furthered the goals of northern industry and politics far better and longer than they served to protect even the most basic rights of the freedmen. The meager promises of physical protection contained in the civil rights statutes adopted in the post-Civil War period were never effectively honored. Hardly a decade later, the political compromise settling the disputed Hayes-Tilden election once again left the freedmen to the reality of life with their former masters. Finally, the much-discussed “40 acres and a mule,” hardly extravagant reparations for an enslaved people who literally built the nation, never got beyond the discussion stage.

The reason that the Civil War amendments failed to produce equality for blacks remains an all-too-familiar barrier today: effective remedies for harm attributable to discrimination in society in general will not be granted to blacks if that relief involves a significant cost to whites. Even in northern states, abolitionists’ efforts following the Revolutionary War were stymied by this unspoken principle. Today, affirmative action remedies as well as mandatory school desegregation plans founder as whites balk at bearing the cost of racial equality.

Throughout this history of unkept promises and myth-making about the possibility and proximity of racial equality, racial policy via fantasy has not been the exclusive province of “the perpetrator perspective.” Black victims of racial oppression also subscribe to myths about racial issues.  The modern civil rights movement and its ringing imperative, “We Shall Overcome,” must be seen as part of the American racial fantasy.  This is not a condemnation.  Much of what advocates call the “struggle” to throw off the fetters of subordinate status is simply an age-old effort to uncover the reality beneath the racial illusions that whites and blacks hold both about themselves and about each other.Clutching for ideological straws is understandable, but, unfortunately, the result is as predictable as that of the framers’ fantasy…
