THE GOP'S DIRTY LITTLE SECRET: VIRTUALLY NO SUPPORT OF BLACK CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATES
WebToday ^ | 10-28-10 | WebToday

Posted on 10/28/2010 4:08:36 PM PDT by geraldmcg

With vicory within their grasp, the GOP may have their dirty little secret exposed. And just what is that secret? Virtually no suupport of Black Conservative Candidates!

Patriot PAC is conducting a news conference on Friday, Oct 29 at 1PM ET at the National Press Club to discuss the GOP support (or lack thereof) of their black Congressional candidates. They will also discuss the impact of the TEA Party movement on congressional races through Operation Black Storm.

Supporters of Operation Black Storm believe that the election of minority candidates should be at the forefront of Republican politics, particularly as after the election of 2010, there will likely be more conservative black candidates serving in Congress since Reconstruction.

Spokesperson for Operation Black Storm, Kevin Jackson of The Black Sphere, who is available to be your Talk show Guest, commented, “Republicans can be proud that JC Watts carried the torch in the U.S. House alone for some years; however it is a new day. The socialist blacks in Congress—the Congressional Black Caucus—are about to have to contend with a black peer group constituted of Frederick Douglass Republicans, who see America as the land of opportunity, and not the land of handouts.”

Asked why this news conference was scheduled, Jackson explained that most in the mainstream media are not covering what is about to occur, though it is as historically significant as Obama’s election, a transformative time in American politics, and a day Democrats have dreaded to confront.

The hope of Operation Black Storm is to get the rest of America to see the importance of what is happening, and to support these candidates in the final surge to Nov 2 by donating to the candidates directly or through Patriot PAC.

Patriot PAC is providing endorsements and financial support for the whole slate of candidates under Operation Black Storm, with the assistance of Frederick Douglass Foundation PAC and Declaration Alliance PAC, and the national Tea Party and Patriot movement.

Marvin Scott - IN-7, Chuck Smith - VA-3, Bill Randall - NC-13, Tim Scott - SC-3, Bill Marcy - MS-2, Charlotte Bergman - TN-9, Michael Faulkner - NY-15, Robert Broadus - MD-4, Charles Lollar - MD-5, Stephen Broden - TX-9, Star Parker - CA-37, Ryan Frazier - CO-7, Allen West - FL-22, Isaac Hayes - IL-2, and Vince Danet - US Virgin Islands are Operation Black Storm candidates.

K. Carl Smith, President of ConservativeMESSENGER, and Field Director for the Operation Black Storm coalition stated, “We want to reignite America’s passion for liberty and create an atmosphere for political dialogue where Frederick Douglass Republicans can engage in conversation in every community, and show black America an open path of integrity to voting their core values.”

ABOUT KEVIN JACKSON…

Kevin Jackson, author of the critically acclaimed book The Big Black Lie, has made it his mission to expose the left's ignorance and racist political escapades. Propelled by like-minded patriots, Kevin has been featured on the Glenn Beck Program, The Rush Limbaugh Show, the John Gibson Radio show, and even smacked down David Shuster on MSNBC!

REPUBLICAN RENAISSANCE By Kevin Jackson

If you think the election of a half-black president was historical, consider the history America is about to make in the upcoming election of 2010 -- or what conservatives are calling Eviction 2010.

Laura Ingraham touched on it recently in an interview with Carly Fiorina, where Ingraham called 2010 "The Year of the Woman" for Republicans. I can't totally agree with Ingraham on this, because I think this election is much more than the year of the woman. We are in the midst of a Republican Renaissance.

Along with the many Republican women running all around the country in congressional and gubernatorial races, there are fourteen remaining black Republicans running for the House (one more if you include the Virgin Islands). There exists the potential to get more black Republicans elected to Congress than ever since Reconstruction.

There are also nine Latinos House candidates, with the strong likelihood of getting at least four of them elected. The one Latino Senate candidate, Marco Rubio, is all but assured election to the Senate. Finally, there are two Asians running on the Republican ticket.

In New Mexico, Susana Martinez, the first Hispanic woman to win a major party gubernatorial nomination, is ahead in her race. In Nevada, Brian Sandoval, a former U.S. District Court judge, leads in that state's gubernatorial race.

Republicans in recent years bolstered their minority ranks by electing Louisiana's Bobby Jindal as the first Indian-American governor in 2007 and, in 2008, New Orleans' Anh "Joseph" Cao as the first Vietnamese-American member of Congress.

It must perplex the Democrats that in the post-racial, "all things being equal society," both women andminorities are finding their safe landing zone in the Republican Party!

What should be most disturbing to Democrats is that black conservative candidates are for the most part not running in gerrymandered districts with heavy black populations. The same is not true for the Democrats, as 37 of the 39 members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) are running in majority black districts.

Despite this very racist trend in the Democrat Party, don't expect the state-run media to hold Democrats to task. They have been corralling black people into "black neighborhoods," then assigning black Democrat politicians to control black people.

The obvious message by Democrats is that they will allow black "leaders" to hold dominion over other black people in black neighborhoods, but these black politicians shouldn't even think about venturing out to white neighborhoods. This is true of most Latino Democrats as well. If you are a minority, the Democrats expect you to know your place!

And black Democrats certainly do know their place.

The Congressional Black Caucus is actually campaigning against Allen West, the black candidate in Florida. They are actually campaigning for his opponent...a white man! Where is the NAACP to denounce the CBC for not supporting a decorated black military man and great American patriot?

It appears that Colonel Allen West has the right color, but the wrong political party affiliation in order to get either the Congressional Black Caucus to endorse him or the NAACP to cry "racism" against the CBC, all of whom are members of the NAACP!

And don't expect La Raza to support any of the Republican Latino candidates.

Not getting the full support of the GOP across the board may disappoint a few of these minority and female conservative candidates; however, they are not dismayed. They support the history of the Republican Party, and know that it will be they who put the GOP back on the path to constitutional conservatism.

This Republican Renaissance is a throwback to politics the way the Founding Fathers intended it. Most of these conservative candidates have entered politics for the first time in their lives and are not institutional politicians. Institutional politicians call their seats by name, e.g. Ted Kennedy's seat, Joe Biden's old seat, Barack Obama's Senate seat. These candidates know that these are the people's seats.

This group of black conservatives have also rejected the party "machine," opting instead for the support of the grassroots -- the people. They don't owe the Republican Party any favors, nor do they owe any lobbyists or big-money PACs. They are free to legislate without prejudice.

The Left can attempt to set the narrative that the Republican Party is not supporting these black congressional candidates due to racism. Well, that's not the case. The Republican Party didn't support a lot of candidates, including whites. It's mostly just stupid politics by the Republicans, many of whom are just part of the machine. Shame on the Republican Party for not recognizing the importance of electing this new brand of politician, particularly those who could put the Left on their heels.

However, there is a much bigger shame on the Left for their very real racist policies of using minority Democrat politicians to keep their assigned minority neighborhoods in check.

Americans understand that the Left is using racism for their nefarious needs, which is simply to make Americans more dependent on government. This is why so many blacks, Latinos, Asians, and women are entering politics...as Republicans.

The Republican Renaissance will usher in a new era: Emancipation II -- This time, Republicans will free everybody! ###

Just heard a report on Fox:

Bill Clinton, at the direction of the White House, convinced Kendrick Meek to drop out of the Senate race in Florida. Meek, the African American Democrat candidate, later changed his mind and stayed in. The story is confirmed by both Meek and Charlie Crist.

This is not the first time that Democrats have tried to muscle out their Black candidate.

Interesting. Curiously enough, the publisher of the local “Black” magazine in Albuquerque (3% of the population) endorsed the Republican, because as he said “John Barela worked with our community before he was running for office and doesn’t take our vote for granted.” This coming from a guy who said he is a big Obama fan.

Most Republicans I know are going to withhold support of any black folks running for office until they have a record. Even then, look at Colin Powell. It's tough to believe that all these black Republicans are from that small percentage that didn't support Barry Soetoro. They well could be, but it'll take a track record of some sort that shows race isn't their major concern before people are going to be willing to support them.

It's a sad state of affairs, but it wasn't white folks who voted 95+ percent for the white guy in the last election and in favor of someone who opposes a huge number of things the "black community" has for decades insisted were critical to them.

Yeah, and your nose is not working so friggin well.

I've donated to several guys who were mentioned here as needing help and I think a couple of them were black, I'd have to check. Whether you know it or not and whether those in your “circle” are honest enough with you to admit it or not there are a hell of a lot of people who are in the “once burned twice shy” camp with black folks ever since the 2008 elections. Colin Powell set black folks in the Republican party back a lot and not admitting it means not starting to solve the problem, that's all.

Human nature is human nature and people don't trust someone very similar to others who have betrayed them. It's a fact that needs to be openly admitted and addressed, not covered in holier than thou crap.

have a nice little day

I agree with Rash.....

Frankly, I was surprised by some national blacks, and regional blacks...by their votes for a liberal Democrat...only because he was black. Period.

And if you want to get down where the rubber meets the road....I look differently at black people that I don't know personally, because I think they voted for Obama...based on NOTHING more than his skin color. And you know what...I'm right.

I don't like it. I don't feel good about it....but that is fact.

I don't know where this is coming from, but if it's true, it just feeds into my disgust for the Party establishment. As it is, where I can't vote Tea Party I'm already darn close to voting Libertarian from now on.

If the intention is to look to get support then I do not see how making insinuations of racism against the GOP is the right approach.

Is there any evidence of lack of support from the GOP that could be given or just the accusation?

Much of the article sounds very good. I do support a conservative reform of the Republican party and I also love to see many of the new black, hispanic, asian, (etc...) candidates as well as the women candidates who speak like solid conservatives. The democrat party hold of these groups of people based upon divisive politics needs to be broken and a growing and strong united conservative movement is the way.

I agree though with the posts above that question this confusing thread. What are the accusations about?

THAT'S RIGHT, by GOD!

And nobody should support anyone JUST BECAUSE THEY'RE BLACK.

Democrats and liberals not only don't support black conservatives, they also call them "Uncle Toms" and "traitors".

But, to be fair, let's make a list of White conservatives that the GOP doesn't support*, and a list of Black conservatives that the GOP doesn't support* and we'll see which list is longer - much longer.

*Someone needs to define "Support". If they we we don't blindly support them JUST BECAUSE THEY'RE BLACK, that's right. COLOR - as we can see in many cases - is NO indicator that the person can, or will do the job well.

It's time this race card shit should stop.

Just another reason to abandon the existing GOP frauds in favor of some real conservatives. If you can find them.

Here I thought all this time that the Republican Party was made up of a bunch of spineless do-nothing cowards.

Now we find out that most of them aren’t (just) spineless do-nothing cowards, it’s that they’re a bunch of useless RINOs.

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right.

It's not racist to say that the Republican machine supported and advanced both Watts and Powell and that they betrayed us any more than it is to say Specter did. If you want to call others racist I say you're doing exactly what you accuse others of, trolling. People I know only trust those they know who are out in the street supporting the Tea Party, not someone who is blessed by the GOP no matter what their color. They're twice as shy of those who the think may turn RINO or base their votes on something other than principal, like race.

That's a fact whether you like it or not and pretending that there is no impact and no fallout from the last Republicans who voted their race first and their avowed principals second isn't going to change anything. Voting for people who you know will stand on their principals is what it's going to take and voting race first isn't the only thing that has a lot of those the GOP says should be supported distrusted but it's one of them for sure.
