House Dems trained to make race the issue byJoel Gehrke
House Democrats received training this week on how to address the issue of race to defend government programs, according to training materials obtained by The Washington Examiner.
The prepared content of a Tuesday presentation to the House Democratic Caucus and staff indicates that Democrats will seek to portray apparently neutral free-market rhetoric as being charged with racial bias, conscious or unconscious.
In her distributed remarks, Maya Wiley of the Center for Social Inclusion criticized "conservative messages [that are] racially 'coded' and had images of people of color that we commonly see used" and proposed tactics for countering the Republicans' (presumably) racially-coded rhetoric.
According to Wiley's group's website, "right-wing rhetoric has dominated debates of racial justice undermining efforts to create a more equal society, and tearing apart the social safety net in the process" for over 25 years. Wiley had been invited to run the Democrats "through their strategy and how they message and talk about stuff" pertaining to race and fiscal policy, a staffer for Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif

America is dying.
No, she’s dead Jim.
She just hasn’t fallen over yet.
It’s called college
Add to it public schools and the media.
If I say my business is “in the black” am I being racist?
Pathetic bunch of communist losers. There is not one moral bone left in anyone in the democratic party.
Im going to get massivley flamed for this, but here goes; America is alive and well and she will endure. I am getting more and more optimistic that we are looking at '72 or '84 type rsults this cycle. I like to believe my FB page is a good cross section of American thought and culture. In the early years of FB, battles among my considerable friends list were constant. Now, with each new outrage, one by one either my opponents (meant in a good way, they are still my friends after all)just remain silent or openly deny their earlier messiah. My friends, I feel much better these days, I think that America truly sees Obama for what he is; an inexperienced, socialist, racist and divisive mistake. I dont think Romney is even a factor, a freaking dung beetle has a better chance right now according to the latest Rass.. Awaiting the flames..
When the immoral left tries to demonize the Christian faith, attack the family structure, advance their disgusting agenda upon us - it is to ruin the basic values of this country. There are plenty of us to pull it back from the brink. We've been busy working, but now there can be no excuse but to get involved and save this great nation.
Bring back morality, teach good from evil, don't put up with loss of freedoms, get rid of re-education / indoctrination in our public schools and get back to the basics. Founders had it right then and it is still correct.
America is dead as far as I’m concerned. When I grew up people didn’t break into private church property, grow some weed ridden garden, and have the police sit there and do absolutely nothing about it. We are sunk.
No flames from me. The words and the desperation from the left is obvious. If the GOP had any brains (doubtful) they would run THESE types of “facts” against the Dems in ad after ad after ad. There is an endless amount of ammo to use from their own words, to defeat the left.
They don’t even hide it any more. Training them on HOW to play the race card. Puleeeeze, lefties...... is that the best you can do?
Run an ad with this information and have the last 10 seconds filled with laughter...... fading out to a screen with an American flag waving in the wind with a voice telling which GOP candidate to vote for. The dems heads would truly explode. Thus MORE laughter.
I will figure out a minority status out there somewhere; an especially if a WASP can tout her Indian heritage to get votes, we all have a chance to throw these idiots under the bus of thier own pathetic creation.
Bring back morality, teach good from evil, don’t put up with loss of freedoms, get rid of re-education / indoctrination in our public schools and get back to the basics.
Yep. The job was started in 2010 and we have to continue to take back our country in 2012 and beyond. We are being led by a bunch of maniacs now.
sadly, the GOP is too afraid of their own shadow to do what you suggest..despite the obvious value in doing so..
To be expected from a portion of our society that has to rearrange reality to fit their torqued perspectives. Watch how they rearrange to fit what they understand, and you will see what is lacking in them.
They need training? I thought the House Dems lived and breathed this stuff.
Does this mean that all of us who pray and sacrifice daily for the restoration of America are immoral too? Please don’t lump us in with the dems and their bunch of suck-ups. We Christians are prepared to fight physically if we have to, but we’ll do the war in the Heavenlies, first. Don’t count us with the villains.
Dont count us with the villains.
No, not at all.... What my point was, is that the Obama administration is encouraging the able bodied to jump onto Soc. Security Disability payments after they run out of 99 weeks of unemployment. That is what rubs me wrong.
Keep the faith!!
The selfish people, including our government, are killing what was basically a prosperous society.
Kind of ironic that they are mostly doing in the name of “fairness” and “equality” when we had one of the best functioning system in the world.
They have a few more years to feed off the bones and then things will probably get very ugly.
Unless you believe Team Rino will turn things around.
