Voted for Obama.
I smell a rat...here.
How about good old General Powell?
THIS ARTICLE IS A DAMN LIE!
I personally have donated!
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.
I thought we were supposed to start being about the content of character, not the color of skin. Operation Black Storm? Never heard of it. Give me conservatives and I don’t care what color they are.
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.
The ones will a good chance to win like West seem to be getting plenty of support.
Link to Meek - Clinton - Obama story/post:
Oh this is the ‘throw the sink at em’ tactic right before the election, the ol, divide and conquer BS of the progressives. AGITATING FLUCKERS
You know, conservative is conservative just like American is American, screw the hyphens.
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.
I have no idea about the pub party but me personally, I’ve donated several times to Col. West, and to Charlotte Bergman, and Star Parker, and to BAMPAC, and I think to Ryan Frazier as well....in years past, I’ve donated to Allen Keyes and Deb Honeycutt...
Sounds like an organization we should support—more than the RNC.
Color trumped anything for both of them.
I smell lots and lots of rats running around today....
I emailed Kevin Johnson...hope he responds.
No black conservatives running in any of the races I can vote for. Lots of black liberals but they seem to prefer the democrat plantation.
I’d vote for a tree stump...if they were conservative.
How about an article on the amount of donations black candidates in BOTH parties have received from individuals?
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
Kevin didn’t write this article, but someone is setting him up.
Send these to the GOP.
The head of the RNC is black and you expect us to believe this TRIPE?
Sent this to the RNC...
sumbudy’s gonna get it!
Wow, this hit piece might cost us the black vote. We had that all locked up until now.
All joking aside, I don’t vote based on race.
Guess they haven’t heard about this-
Raging Elephants Launch New G.O.P. Is the New Black Billboards
“A new way of voting...”
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.
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!
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?
Of course it’s a lie....meant to divide..
It is more likely that the RNC doesn’t support them because they are conservatives.
A black conservative is a black conservative. They don’t know to prove any more than anyone else. You must be a Democrat troll.
Start with Marilyn Musgrave of CO. She had the most conservative voting record in the House. The RNC refused to give her support in '08 and Markey the Marxist took her seat by using a bogus smear that Musgrave had no money to respond to.
I’m sure that IS why.
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.
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.
Great....now NPR is going to fire you
That’s right they aren’t really spineless. They are actually fighting conservative America in their own way. Stealth Progressives.
This deserves a BARF ALERT!
> “JC Watts...turned into a liberal.”
No, he turned into a racist.
Very confusing headline
Clear your cache and then look at your post.
You forgot "lawn jockeys" and "house niggers".
Actually, your comments were racist. The sort of thing a Democrat troll would try to insert into the dialogue
liberals and quotas. What about the content of a man’s character? Oh wait, it’s better if he’s black.
I saw that so I re-posted it from another source in #27.
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.
