VIDEO: New documentary: Has the Republican party sold out blacks?
The Daily Caller ^ | 11/08/2011 | Caroline May

Posted on 11/08/2011 12:03:18 PM PST by martosko

Former Bush appointee and conservative commentator Tara Wall is set to release a new documentary examining the relationship between black Americans and the Republican Party.

The film, “Souled Out: The Documentary,” looks at how the GOP went from being the party of Lincoln to one that a majority of blacks avoid.

“This used to be the party for black Americans and it is not anymore, why is that?” Wall wondered aloud in an interview with The Daily Caller. “So we are examining that, first from a historical perspective, and then where it has brought us today.”

They’re asking the wrong question. It shoud be: Why did a significant portion of the black population allow themselves to be enslaved by Democrats again under The Great Society?

They are welcome to join us in our conservatism....they are not welcome to force us to sacrifice our scruples to keep supporting bad decisions!!If you drop out of school and fail that’s your decision, if you get hooked on drugs and fail that’s your decision and if you vote for communist and lose your freedom (wind up begging for more welfare) that’s your decision.

I’m beginning to think that the civil rights movement was not so much about freedom as it was about someone’s notions of economic parity.

“Has the Republican party sold out blacks?”

Not sure. Let’s ask Herman Cain.

I hope we wait to see what Tara has to say before passing judgement. Her answer may well be the correct one: “No.”

It’s easy.

Which party is more appealing to what people WANT to hear?

A party that says you’re a permanent victim and deserve to live off others, or a party that says we want to get government out of your way so you are able to achieve and succeed - meaning you own your own failure or success.

The party that perpetuates class warfare even though they are the home of the klan, destroyed the black family under welfare and social program aid requirements, and have killed more blacks than anyone else under the lie of “choice” and “helping”, or the party that was fighting southern segregationists and jim crow laws.

Say the lies long and often enough and you brainwash an entire demographic. Even if after 50 years of lying you’ve basically destroyed them as a functioning people, you just keep lying and say someone else has destroyed them, the democrats have stopped it from being worse. Sad they believe this crapola.

Why did a significant portion of the black population allow themselves to be enslaved by Democrats again under The Great Society?

The shift of black voters to the Democrats began under FDR, who got 60% of the black vote, and was more or less completed in 1964, when Barry Goldwater's positions on civil rights issues estranged black voters and gave the Democrats 80% of their vote--a ratio they've more or less held ever since.

The reason is rather simple: the Democrats paid attention to the black vote and cultivated it. The Republicans, on the other hand, basically ignored them once Reconstruction was over and the "Bloody Shirt" was retired. The shift of the old southern segregationist vote to the Republicans has consolidated the black impression that the Republicans are hostile to their interests. Untrue and unfair that may be, but that's the feeling.

This is very interesting. It seems that the progressive movement is getting worried that they are about to be exposed as the ideology of the KKK and are already working on a strategy for damage control.

While there is of course no denying that the KKK was a terrorist wing of the democrat party what many fail to to also point out is the connections between the Progressive movement and the KKK. Sanger (progressive icon) was aligned with the KKK as were her policies and the progressive democrats of today still follow these policies.

I had wondered if the reason Herman Cain is being so strongly attacked right now by the fascist progressive movement is because he pointed out the extreme racism of Planned Parenthood and the progressive movement. He started to take on the fight to expose the racist KKK Progressive movement and it is as if someone issued the order to destroy him and now we have seen false accusations one after another.

Why are “the blacks” always a separate category from the rest of America when it comes to these MSM political pieces. Do they put their pants on differently from the rest of humanity? Do their interests as human beings vary from the rest of humanity? Does the MSM expect them to be addressed differently than the other color hues of the populus? I say the Republican Party should ignore MSM racist appeals to address them as a collective mindless body and stick to policy based on reason rather than race.

Let me get this straight: for forty years blacks chose to vote 90/10 for the other party and then complain because the Republican party has "left them"?

Cry me a river.

Black America has made their political allegiance abundantly clear. Let us chose to win without them. We don't need them any more than we need any of the other grievance groups.

The thing I really like about this documentary coming out is that it is going to open up the discussion. It is a discussion that democrats and the progressive movement will lose. They are better off doing as they have done whereas they hide the facts about the past of the democrats and the progressives and just smear republicans and conservatives. If a real discussion takes place and people have to deal with facts then the left-wing loses being that they have been and still are the party of racism, terrorism, and class warfare.

How in this day and age is an aberration called a congressional Black Caucus constitutionally be permitted to exist? I assume their mission is to legislate on behalf of a segment based exclusively on color? Does the 5th and 14th amendment apply only in instances if a congressional White Caucus should arise?

Then what you want to do is give the Democrats a 9 million vote head start.

Eisenhower won nearly forty percent of the black vote in 1956. Nixon won a little over thirty percent in 1960. Barry Goldwater got just six percent in 1964. Why did Goldwater get such a pathetic amount? Because he opposed the 1964 Civil Rights bill. As did W.F. Buckley Jr. As a result, the Republican Party was labeled as the anti-Black party despite the most prominent racist segregationists being Democrats. The Pubbies have never quite recovered from that despite both Goldwater and Buckley later publicly regretting their opposition. There was certainly a lot of bad legislation in the bill, but by opposing it, the Pubbies lost that percentage of the black vote they used to rely on.

Give it to them? They already have it. And as far as I am concerned they can keep it. I don't care to "dialog" with blacks or hispanics or Log Cabin perverts or any other alphabet-soup groups that come a-courting. Let the Pander-crats have them. Run without them, win without them, govern without them.

Yeah, conservatives took it on the chin for supporting the 10th Amendment.

We should have kept supporting it and never looked back. We should stand or fall based on our ideas and principles, not by how successfully we pander to certain unappeaseable constituencies.
