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.”

 

 

The current Divider in Chief has failed – it is time for new leadership!

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.

Black Conservatives Make Their Voices Heard After Poll Shows Romney Support Among African-Americans at Zero Percent

By  via The Blaze

A new poll conducted by NBC and the Wall Street Journal shows that support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney among black people stands at an incredible zero percent. Nada. Zilch. Zero.

But in order for the poll to be accurate, one would have to assume that there are indeed “zero” African-Americans that stand with Mitt Romney. And while the folks at NBC or WSJ certainly aren’t obligated to justify their findings, they would likely have a hard time doing so to the sea of African-Americans who took to Twitter to express their support for Romney after feeling as if they were being ignored — or better yet, as if they don’t exist at all.

Thus the #BlackConservativesForMittRomney hashtag was born. Here are some of the best:

I’m a young, black, female conservative…oh, and I exist.

Hey @nbc, I know I probably ignored your call but I’m black and voting for Romney.  Mark it down, yo.

NBC pollsters who say 0% of African-American voters support Romney. Seen the 60s sign reading “I Am A Man”??

NBC created a fake poll saying that romney wasn’t supported by blacks……..well today…we punched their eye

An NBC poll says 0% of African-American voters support Romney. Heh.

If a Black Conservative shouts in the @NBCNews forest, does anybody hear?

This movement is real and we’re taking our country back

I stand with Romney because big government is bankrupting America 

 I am a black conservative….racist remarks wont stop us. Lies about romney wont stop us! We R conservatives!!

And despite another mainstream media narrative that all conservatives are intolerant racists, these black conservatives found plenty of support from all races:

I support and because character matters, not skin color.  God bless my Fellow patriots.

Whether they will admit it or not, the folks at NBC and the Wall Street Journal stand corrected.

Romney Got Booed, But Blacks Are Getting Screwed

Posted by  via Kira Davis

For three and a half years Barack Obama has unleashed economic devastation on the African American community. And so far, facing little backlash for skipping out on the NAACP, suggests that black supporters of the president don’t mind grabbing their ankles.

Mitt Romney, on the other hand, did address the abortion backing, civil rights group last week. And for vowing to repeal Obamacare, Romney got booed.

(Cue the cacophony of liberal media spin…now).

But at least Mitt Romney actually entered the “Lion’s Den.”

How did Barack Obama show love to his most ardent supporters? Before he sent Joe Biden to address the NAACP, his campaign released a 5 five-page report in response to Romney’s speech.

How cute.

The Report is titled, Mitt Romney: The Wrong Choice For African Americans.

It basically argues that if black Americans support Mitt Romney’s agenda, they will see unemployment numbers nearly twice the national average for his entire presidency and that black youth unemployment will hover around 30 to 40 percent. Black families will see their median net worth cut in half and a majority of young black children would have to rely on food stamps to eat. The memo warns that in President Romney’s hometown, crime and murder rates will skyrocket and blacks will account for nearly 78 percent of the homicide victims.

Oh, crap! That is Barack Obama’s record in the black community: A social-economic wrecking ball slamming through the neighborhood.

The President’s memo also maintains that Mitt Romney will protect his rich friends from tax increases and mentions Mitt Romney’s rugged stance on repealing Obamacare. (Cue the boos). However, the president’s memo does not tell blacks about the 21 new taxes hikes they stand to pay when Obamacare is fully implemented.

Obama’s memo also slams Mitt Romney for opposing the Recovery Act and says a President Romney will “slash” funding for green jobs. But again, the presidents memo does not tell black voters about how Barack Obama’s government-backed green energy loan program, sent “$16.4 billion of the $20.5 billion in loans granted as of Sept. 15 2011, to companies either run by or primarily owned by Obama’s financial backers—individuals who were bundlers for his campaign, members of his National Finance Committee, or large donors to the Democratic Party,” according to author, Peter Schweizer.

That totals a whopping 80 percent. Way to fight for the black community, Mr. President.

The president’s memo also blasts Mitt Romney saying the governor would “Cut public school funding and leave our children stranded without a plan.” The memo does not tell blacks about how President Obama loves poor black children, so much so that he sat on his thumbs, TWICE, while congressional Democrats killed the hugely successful, D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program; a program that effectively helped about 98 percent of black and Hispanic, low-income families in D.C. have access to quality education.

On the whole, in five pages and over 2,ooo words, the president’s memo mentions the word “debt” once. Sadder still, it mentions the phrase “reduces the deficit” only twice—details not included.

The only thing that deserves to be booed is Obama’s abysmal record in the black community. Barack Obama will continue to golf, hold fundraisers with Wall Street titans and Hollywood elites, while ignoring blacks just like he ignored the NAACP.

Which begs the question: If 95 percent of any racial group dedicates decades of nearly unflinching allegiance to one political party and one philosophical agenda, aren’t they just begging to be taken for granted?

PJTV’s Alfonzo Rachel put it best: It’s strange how the black community for the most part opposes homosexuality yet seems to love being politically, socially, and mentally sodomized by the democrat party.

The polls are pretty consistent and it seems, sadly, that at the end of the day, the bases on which a majority of black Americans who support Obama, begins and ends with his skin color.

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 Democrat Race Lie

The Democrat Race Lie

This whopper deserves all the attention it can get. Again, it shows the ignorance and contempt of the electorate liberals depend on.

In 2010, Democrats gave their website a facelift and whitewash. Check out the screenshot to see what they used to say about their civil rights history compared to now.

Democrats are unwavering in our support of equal opportunity for all Americans. That’s why we’ve worked to pass every one of our nation’s Civil Rights laws, and every law that protects workers. Most recently, Democrats stood together to reauthorize the Voting Rights Act.

On every civil rights issue, Democrats have led the fight. We support vigorous enforcement of existing laws, and remain committed to protecting fundamental civil rights in America.

This is the kind of BS spewed by Democrats on a daily basis, and unfortunately the media and other so-called watchdogs are so apparently ignorant of American history, Democrats continue to LIE through their teeth to their constituents, and via academia, to our kids. Despite the truth being out there for years, it’s probably not going to explode until some big shot news anchor gives us an “explosive expose” bringing us all those facts first, so he/she can proudly receive a Pulitzer…

August 20, 1996 Bill authored by U.S. Rep. Susan Molinari (R-NY) to prohibit racial discrimination in adoptions, part of Republicans’ Contract With America, becomes law

And let’s not forget the words of liberal icon Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood…

We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population….

So the next time any Democrat claims they’ve been supportive of civil rights in America (and been so all along), ask them to explain their past. “We’ve grown” is not gonna cut it, considering they continue to lie about their past to this day, and only someone lacking in common sense would believe two distinct political parties could juxtaposition their stances on civil rights seemingly overnight.

And I’m tired of the recitation that Southern Democrats became racist Republicans and took those tendencies with them. Even today, it never takes long for a Democrat to play the race card purely for political advantage.
