Bush's Black Voter Court Shakes Democrats
BlackNews.com ^ | July 22, 2005 | Earl Ofari Hutchinson

Posted on 07/22/2005 9:26:09 PM PDT by NickatNite2003

Republican National Committee chair Ken Mehlman told the recent NAACP convention that he'd pull out all stops to woo black voters to the GOP tent. A few hundred miles away his boss was busy touting his program for jobs, minority business, and homeownership at the Indianapolis Black Expo. Bush and Mehlman got a listen at both places, and they should have. Blacks have gotten precious little in return for their blind loyalty to the Democratic Party. The black poor are more numerous. They live in crime and violence plagued neighborhoods. Their children attend miserably failing public schools. Public services in their communities are abominable.

Increased black GOP voter support will give blacks greater leverage in the Republican Party to promote their interests. That in turn will force the Democrats to fight harder for those interests. The GOP has reshaped the black agenda to challenge the agenda of black Democrats and mainstream civil rights groups.

But Bush and Mehlman's black voter onslaught has nothing to do with political altruism. The GOP is playing for national and state dominance for years to come and even the most marginal bump up in the black vote for the party in key battleground states would assure that dominance. There are slight rumblings of a shift. The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, a Washington D.C. based black political research institute, found that between 2000 and 2004 the percent of blacks that registered Democrat dropped 11 percent. One in three young (under age 35) blacks said they were independents. The percent of blacks registered as Republican tripled. The not insignificant Republican increase and the Democratic slide among blacks have had major political consequences.

Dear Blacks,
The democratic party has ruined your families, your neighborhoods, your work ethic, your schools and your safety.

In short, they have ruined your lives. They have taken away your freedom. They are still the plantation owners and you're still the slaves.

The author is keen to observe these facts on the ground.

A few percent here and a few percent there, add up to Republican victories, and to placing some good conservative blacks in high elected offices.

By 2008 people will reflect on eight years with two blacks serving as Secretary of State of the US.

Whoever runs for President as a Republican can point this out, along with progress for education and home ownership.

You need to read a book, "Creating Equal" by Ward Cornell. This is all about blacks in this country being equal right now. It's about blacks being in positions to insure equality for all people.
The book will open your eyes and the next time someone gets in your face you will have the true facts and answers.
This book has helped many of us deal with our lives in more productive ways no matter what our race.
This is the book the liberals can not begin to defend or spin. This the book and the man that did away with affirmative action in California's. This same mold has been successfully utilized is several other states as well. Ward Connerly demands that all students that have the qualifying grades and required classes should be enrolled in our state college system. Grants should be given to all students who are not able to pay for their own education without any preconditions about race or sex.

The problem as I see it, is that the Democrats turned their party over to the radical left wing, and only seated those Blacks who were left wing radicals, at their conventions, starting back in the sixties. It caused an immediate shift of conservative, and even moderate Democrats to the Republican or at least Independant parties.

The Democratic party stance on Affirmative action, Busing, The Watts Riots, Abortion and the Viet Nam war started a drift away from the Democratic party.

It was Briefly interrupted by the Nixon debacle. Sanity again prevailed after the Carter Malaise.

Year after year non radical Blacks have had to feel estranged from both parties. Partly to blame for that were the Conservatives who came to the Republican party from the Democrats, How could Blacks Trust them? Also, the mistaken idea that no Blacks would even harbor conservative ideas.

No-one ever bothered to point out to Blacks the concerns and ideals they personally shared with Conservatives. I think that is happening now, and it's about time.

The party of substance, not words, is making more and more inroads into the the domain of the Demoncrats. More, and more minorities and other groups traditionally associated with the Demoncrats are becoming more and more disenchanted with the lip serving Ghouls that are the base, and leadership of the the Demoncrats. Freedom, opportunity, liberty are all virtues of free people, and the enlightened are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and it is not the Demoncrats.

Nothing could be better for the GOP or for blacks. Many black leaders still advocate voting for the party that "does the most for the black community" (gives away the most handouts) but this method obviously doesn't work. I hope that more and more black voters are coming to realize this.

"Just offer them relaxed prosecution for drugs, lots of make work public employment, and reinstate unlimited ADC payments. They be votin' for the GOP every time."

I'm afraid your view only applies to a very small percentage of the black community. This small sector just happens to be more visible to society than the majority, who are responsible, spiritual, patriotic, and kind.

Of course. In your mind, we can't think for ourselves. We can't come to a logical conclusion.

Apparently, in your petty little mind, those of us who have become more conservative, or even become Republicans, have done so for the promise of relaxed prosecution, "make work" public employment, and unlimited ADC programs.

Idiot.

Thanks for the ping. While I often disagree with Earl Ofari Hutchison, he's always been civil.

GOP gains among black voters are no accident and are not due to happenstance. In August 2000, embattled GOP strategist Karl Rove told Washington Post national political writer Tom Edsall that the Republicans must reject "the use of such issues as affirmative action, and 'welfare queens' that past GOP candidates had employed in a calculated bid to polarize the electorate and put together a predominantly white majority." Mehlman repeated a variation on the line at the NAACP convention when he tendered his and the GOP's mea culpa for snubbing blacks in past years.

I'm not certain these two "ideas" belong next to each other, politically, as they are out of context, lacking pertinent, relevant, salient details. Nonetheless.

Bush and Mehlman aim to bury the sorry episode in Republican history when it blatantly pandered to racists and states righters, ultra conservative kooks and loonies, and hopelessly alienated black voters.

Some Earl hyperbole, IMHO. Left-wing Dem Black churches (in addition to the usual racialist-based political groups) did plenty of damage themselves -- in politicizing many issues that conservatives black are comfortable with and supportive of. I know in the SF Bay Area/Oakland, Black pastors TOLD their parishioners they would banish any parishioner who DIDN'T fight Prop 209 (and/or welfare reform). And given the way radical blacks have held others hostage (in the "community", so to speak) there's a reality vector, not to mention also a security issue involved in some of these issues. Ward Connerly's office was damaged and arsoned. By whom? and that sure sends a loud message to conservative black voters. It's a threat to them, as well.

So, while EOH is writing cleanly, he is NOT laying out the facts of this "disenfranchisement by GOP of "minorities"" very fairly. He's laying it all out in terms of "voting lines" but only voting lines sans all other very pertinent data. It's his choice, as author, certainly to do so.

Their strategy is to resurrect the part of its past in which Republicans championed black rights. The difference this time is that Republicans have radically redefined the fight for black rights. It's not for affirmative action, and more entitlement and welfare programs. It's pro-business, and homeownership, pro-Social Security privatization, and pro traditional family values. That appeals to young, upwardly mobile blacks.

Gotcha, Earl: This also appeals to blacks of all ages. Especially those who for whatever reason would like to see not only themselves, but their CHILDREN, AND GRANDCHILDREN owning homes and doing well.

Bush and Mehlman may be on to something.

EOH is right -- Bush and Mehlman are on to something.

The percenage of blacks becoming more conservative is due to a gut check on their future. If they want security for their families from the kooks and perverts and criminals, they become more conservative as they get frustrated with the spinning wheel of liberal activist judges.

If they want more freedom, they eventually recognize that the Democrats prefer to keep them shackled andd chained to a welfare system in order to win blocks of votes from the uninformed and easily swayed.

The member that posted that comment is painting with a false broad stroke. It is easier for blacks to become more conservative who grew up in middle-income or better neighborhoods and had good parents and attended good schools. However, we see many of the most well known national figures who grew up in poor neighborhoods and bad siituations but had a deep desire for success and that pointed them to conservatism.

The key is education; lacking that, a personal desire to be aware and informed. Those that have possess those attributes have a greater chance of seeing the Democratic party for what it is--raving lunatics who desire power, not as a party that desires the good for the nation.

Finally, it is possible that the "shift" mentioned in this article of blacks away from blind Democratic registering is one reason Hillary Clinton is pulling this phoney "I am a centrist" and trying to act like a non-Marxist. She knows that in order to win, she will have to appeal to easily swayed whites even more, now that there are fewer "easily swayed blacks" since they are starting to recognize the Democratic party abandoned blacks long ago, simply using blacks as pawns and tools to gain power.

If blacks voted according to their values the Democratic Party would die. That they don't is due to the data they receive from sources they trust reinforced by old media and entertainment stereotypes.

I thought the idea was we were promising just the opposite. If African Americans are coming to the Republican party it is certainly not for handouts. It don't work that way. Conservatives want to cut all these handouts and put some money back into the pockets of the good people of this country who take it upon their own to support themselves and their families.
 
We're not going to promise anything, except maybe you will still say "under God" when you pledge allegiance, or perhaps be able to read the Ten Commandments while waiting to renew your voter registration by providing picture ID, or pay less at the gas pump because we are pumping oil out of Anwar and keeping a few caribou warm huddling next to a warm pipeline in Alaska.
 
You might have to take responsibility to teach your children that not all can be winners. After all when you start keeping score again in soccer and T-ball one side is bound to lose. We can almost guarantee you will have a confrontation with a teacher at your local elementary or high school, when they decide it is in your child's best interest to teach them why Monty has 2 dads, rather than why Washington crossed the Delaware or who John Hancock was.
 
No, if Blacks are migrating to the conservative side it is more than likely because of the moral bankruptcy of the left. You can only run our great country and everything she stands for into the ground for so long before true Americans begin to wake up! The lunacy of the left is driving people of all races to the right. They are sick and tired of seeing bloviating Senators preach how caring and understanding they are only to see the opposite happen when a person of color, or of minority standing, get vilified upon reaching the pinnacle of their careers and recieve appointment as a high ranking official.
 
We are not going to promise anything, except that tomorrow you will still be speaking English, and "Omar" and the rest of the fanatics with their turbans wound to tight will still be running for their lives everywhere in the free world. And just in case you must protect yourself when one of these morons of jihad slips through threatens you or your family, we will make sure you can still pull that 44 magnum out and send him to meet the 52 virgin sheep.

The single most critical factor in getting Dims elected for the past 30-40 years has been the 90+ percent of the black vote that goes to them. That's been their bread and butter. Start chipping into that, even just to the point where the Dims are taking 80-85 percent, and they're finished as a national power. They're nothing more than what their leadership is - a fringe group of shrill, hysterical, guilt-ridden white trust-fund babies.

Interesting article. The Republican Party has no where to go but up, when it comes to attracting Black voters. It can't get much worse. The problem is reaching the Black voters when they are so enmired in pop culture, that the message that they can do better is not getting through.

It will be a wonderful day when enough eyes are opened to the fact that these issues are not "black rights" issues or "white rights" issues, but American citizens' issues. They appeal to anyone who wants a better life and is willing to participate in achieving it.

Bush's Black Voter Court Shakes Democrats

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson, BlackNews.com Columnist



Republican National Committee chair Ken Mehlman told the recent NAACP convention that he'd pull out all stops to woo black voters to the GOP tent. A few hundred miles away his boss was busy touting his program for jobs, minority business, and homeownership at the Indianapolis Black Expo. Bush and Mehlman got a listen at both places, and they should have. Blacks have gotten precious little in return for their blind loyalty to the Democratic Party. The black poor are more numerous. They live in crime and violence plagued neighborhoods. Their children attend miserably failing public schools. Public services in their communities are abominable.

Increased black GOP voter support will give blacks greater leverage in the Republican Party to promote their interests. That in turn will force the Democrats to fight harder for those interests. The GOP has reshaped the black agenda to challenge the agenda of black Democrats and mainstream civil rights groups.

But Bush and Mehlman's black voter onslaught has nothing to do with political altruism. The GOP is playing for national and state dominance for years to come and even the most marginal bump up in the black vote for the party in key battleground states would assure that dominance. There are slight rumblings of a shift. The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, a Washington D.C. based black political research institute, found that between 2000 and 2004 the percent of blacks that registered Democrat dropped 11 percent. One in three young (under age 35) blacks said they were independents. The percent of blacks registered as Republican tripled. The not insignificant Republican increase and the Democratic slide among blacks have had major political consequences.

In Florida, a record black vote turnout in Democratic precincts in 2000 nearly tipped the election to Al Gore. In 2004 it was exactly the reverse. A tepid black Democratic turnout, combined with the 13 percent of the black votes Bush received, which was double what he got in 2000, helped him win Florida outright and avoid a repeat of the election debacle of 2000. Republican gains among blacks were even more dramatic in Ohio. Bush garnered nearly 20 percent of the black vote there. To put that in perspective, if Bush had gotten the same proportion of the black vote in the state in 2004 as he did in 2000, his margin of victory over Democratic presidential contender John Kerry would have narrowed from 118,000 votes to 25,000 votes. Given the large number of provisional ballots filed in Ohio, the Democrats almost certainly would have challenged the election certification. It would have been Florida 2000 all over again.

GOP gains among black voters are no accident and are not due to happenstance. In August 2000, embattled GOP strategist Karl Rove told Washington Post national political writer Tom Edsall that the Republicans must reject "the use of such issues as affirmative action, and 'welfare queens' that past GOP candidates had employed in a calculated bid to polarize the electorate and put together a predominantly white majority." Mehlman repeated a variation on the line at the NAACP convention when he tendered his and the GOP's mea culpa for snubbing blacks in past years.

Bush and Mehlman aim to bury the sorry episode in Republican history when it blatantly pandered to racists and states righters, ultra conservative kooks and loonies, and hopelessly alienated black voters. Their strategy is to resurrect the part of its past in which Republicans championed black rights. The difference this time is that Republicans have radically redefined the fight for black rights. It's not for affirmative action, and more entitlement and welfare programs. It's pro-business, and homeownership, pro-Social Security privatization, and pro traditional family values. That appeals to young, upwardly mobile blacks.

The rare times that Republicans have made any real effort to attract blacks, put money into a black Republican candidate's campaign and delivered on their promise to pump more resources into health care, education, minority business, and education programs, they've dented the Democrat's lock on the black vote and even managed to win a few key state offices, most notably in Maryland and Ohio. In 2006, a slew of high profile blacks will bid for Senate and governor seats in Pennsylvania and Ohio, two perennial crucial battleground states.

The spectacular emergence of the black evangelicals as a potent political force also has been a boon to the GOP, and a nightmare for Democrats. If Republicans play their anti-gay marriage, and anti-abortion cards right, and Bush delivers on his African AIDS funding initiative, they'll get even more black evangelical votes in the 2006 elections.

The fear and loathing many blacks still have of Bush's policies for now guarantee the Democrats a winning hand in the hard fought game for black voters. But Republicans think they can do something that was unthinkable a scant four years, and that's break the Democrat's stranglehold on the black vote. Bush and Mehlman may be on to something.

He just highlighted the Great Society by LBJ is all. When Blacks move away from the Ghetto either physically or mentally they move towards the GOP and that is what is happening. Middle class Blacks are the fastest growing group in America.

Every Black vote that comes our way means the Rats have to manufacture 2 votes somewhere else. Problem is, this is happening across the spectrum.

No he didn't. He insulted each and every black Republican.

From his comments, he doesn't give two cents for any black conservative. From his comments, each and every one of us is of no use, nor of any consequence.

He's got his agenda, and that much is painfully obvious.

Make no mistake: I know there are mouth-breathing racists on our side. And I'll make my displeasure know about each and every one of 'em. And if any come in spittin' distance, then I'm comin' after them. Hard.

You should be insulted because that is exactly how the Dems have treated you for 30 years. By making Blacks slaves to the gummit, you were assumed unable to think or become productive members of society. That is why they built the projects, took the Father out of the house and put abortion clinics on the corner. He was far less racist than that.

Some believe enslaving Blacks to socialism was by good intentions. My belief is that there was some serious Klansmen who were and did destroy the culture and ensure they stayed second class citizens. Thank God you are one that woke up. Millions are waking up with you it's just that you are a pioneer in your community.

No, if Blacks are migrating to the conservative side it is more than likely because of the moral bankruptcy of the left.

Well said.

My belief is that there was some serious Klansmen who were and did destroy the culture and ensure they stayed second class citizens.

As I have posted, regularly.. the racialists all work together. They say they hate each other; but they are are working, often in cojunction, towards the same things and goals. Black, white, hispanic, asian.. scan any of their websites, and you see the same ugly rhetoric. Plus, there are links between them that NEVER seem to get much MSM attention. A-HEM.!! grr..

It aptly describes Sentor Byrd's white voting population, actually.
It's how he kept getting elected.

Blackwell for Governor.
If he isn't tapped by the GOP, they can kiss my ass.
I've put up with their crappy thieving legislature, Senators, and past Governors for almost two decades.
No more.
Give the voters what they want - a real Conservative, or be the first GOP organization kicked out of Ohio.

This should a letter to the editor in every news paper in the country.
 
Thanx, it needs to be said. I am sick and tired of DemoncRats that preach they are the party that will look out for Blacks and minorities in this country, when in fact they only wish to keep the status quo. This is a great country, but thanks to the likes of Rev's Jessie and Al, Blacks still believe we are all just prejudiced, rich white men. I certainly wish someone would tell my wife that so I could retire.
 
It is plastered all over the news how Black neighborhoods are in decline. All I hear from DumbocRat politicians is we need to throw more money and social programs into them. I am positive this is exactly what caused the decline in the first place. It has been going on for so long that the youth of this country think they have no other way out except to go along with this practice or break the law in order to advance in society. It has become a vicious circle that we need to break! The first step is educating people to the fact they must be responsible for themselves. It is no longer anyone else's fault but their own!
 
I worked as a Foreman/Superintendent in the construction industry for 30 years, and I know many youngsters just need to be shown that a strong worth ethic and a desire to better oneself is all that is needed to succeed, now or ever. I have mentored many fine young men over the years from all walks of life. I have also fired many who believed they were there in order to do me a favor, and used their minority status to threaten me and those signing their paychecks. I always found that train of thought reprehensible and sent these followers of charity to the unemployment ranks. I would like to slap the hell outa Jessie and Al for promoting such BS.
 
Bill Cosby is one of my hero's. I grew up on Fat Albert, and Noah building the ark, his father threatening to use the "belt". His politics and mine are very much the same. It is sad to see his own people raking him over the coals for telling the truth and steer them to the path of enlitenment.

He insulted each and every black Republican.

Yes, he did. Earl is losing his grip, and his "touch."

Superb post.

I grew up on Bill Cosby's stuff too. I was just reliving an old memory from my very childhood youth: Bully in the neighborhood had managed to beat up my brothers. I was about 7, I went after him; got one good shot, and then ran like hell for home. I hid, knowing if my dad found out I was gonna get a big-time whuppin'. Anyway, later that evening, with me hiding upstairs, I hear my dad bellow my full name "first, middle, last" -- "get down here!". I knew my emminent demise awaited me downstairs. With trembling did I go downstairs. I noticed the front door was ajar. He asked me if I'd punched "name". I said, "Yes Sir, I did". He bellowed -- "get back upstairs!" And I flew upstairs, "knowing about the belt with hooks on it that would strip the flesh from my body" (lol).. And I heard the frontdoor slam.

Turns out, the boy I punched and his dad came to the front door complaining to my dad that one of "your sons broke my sons" nose. Sibling reporters told me that after I'd admitted my "sin" and gone upstairs -- My dad told the dad and his son -- "get your facts straight: My daughter broke your son's nose". And slammed the door in their faces.

For days, I awaited the "death knell"; but it never happened. My dad acted like nothing had happened at all. Wasn't even addressed. He knew and I knew, I got lucky that time. The bully just didn't figure a "girl" would be able to pounce and pound him.

Bill Cosby's stuff resonated so perfectly with my whole family -- we played the albums over and over. And laughed. All of us.

On the other matter, of LBJ's "great Society". If you study, as I have, where lots of the "great society" money went? It went INTO WHITE WOMEN GOING INTO THE BLACK COMMUNITY AND PROFERRING BIRTHCONTROL, etc. And you'll never read this EVER at a feminist website.

And if you study the white racialist websites: Sure, sure you'll hear lots about how they are "anti-abortion". Let me clue y'all in: They are not FOR abortions for WHITES; but for MINORITIES.

After a time, ya really get to see the world spin...
