Blacks are abandoning the Democratic Party
The Washington Times ^ | 10-1-12 | E.W. Jackson

Posted on 10/02/2012 11:22:19 PM PDT by Slyfox

For more than 50 years, the black community has been the wholly owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party. That may be changing. In spite of the overwhelmingly liberal voting patterns of black voters, they are an essentially conservative community. Americans of African descent are more pro-life and pro-family than the average white voter and as conservative on social issues as any white evangelical.

The Democrats fostered the lie that the KKK was the work of republicans, for a generation. Not even Byrd in his Grand Kleagle outfit could clear that one up.

Maybe a black fascist king figure can shake them up.

Anybody writing on this knows that the reversal was made in 1936, so I don’t understand why they don’t just say, “since 1936” or for more than “75 years”.

Absolutely. In 1932, FDR actually lost 75%+ of the Black vote. In 1936 the situation was almost the exact opposite with FDR getting 72% of the Black vote.

...Which is all trumped by the "free sh!+" confiscated for them from Republican taxpayers by Democrat politicians, and handed over in exchange for votes. The Democrat party has successfuly created an entire subculture of government-addicted junkies for whom they, the Democrat politicians, supply the heroin.

A number of blacks are not happy with the stereotype frequented on the nightly news. Jackson is one of those right-thinking men who is trying to wake up his brethren that Obama is essentially a Pied Piper trying to lead people back to the plantation. I thought his video was quite powerful.

So what changed between 1932 and 1936 to flip the black vote?

Oh, he's got them alright. It's as simple as giving them a monthly check for drugs and a cheap, crappy cell phone.

I have heard for I don’t know how long that blacks are basically conservative but I have yet to see this conservatism expressed by actions. The Congressional Black Caucus is radically socialistic and morally bankrupt.

Don’t believe it. They could be shown a vid of Obama doing Putin on the White House front lawn and they’d still vote for him because he’s black.

To the disappointment of liberals, Blacks voted for gay marriage ban in California. More % than Whites did.

That was more of a macho reaction than a moral revulsion.

Most likely things like the CCC (Conservation Corps) and other publically funded works programs (WPA) in urban and other areas where blacks had more opportunities for jobs.

What a crock!!! Some folks keep whistlin’ dixie. Who freed the slaves? who saddled us with affirmative action? who passed the civil rights act? Yep, pubbies all. Yet the black vote always goes to the RATS.....maybe because the RATS are good at buying votes with freebies.

Democrat administrations from LBJ onward have gutted the Black family. Easy abortion has decimated their numbers. Lax drug enforcement has brought death to their neighborhoods and the imprisonment of a sizable percentage of their men. Their children go to the worst schools in the country and most do not graduate from high school. Their cities are run by the product of those miserable schools and are bad places to live.

Why in God’s green earth do 95% of Blacks continue to vote for Democrats in every local, state and national election?

Uh, huh. I guess I’ll believe this when less than 90% of Blacks vote Democratic.

For the same reason white dems voted for the white racists of their party during segregation. Race hate. Greed: preferences/systematic dominance, special race rights or inequality before the law. Sub-cultural dominance over the ones they hate.

Like all dark impulses and motivators in life, hate eats itself up and destroys the host. It’s why the majority of whites came to reject it for more decent impulses - constitutional freedom for everyone, (beyond men from Europe), all at the same time. Liberals can not abide by that. There is too much easy power in hate and greed and they are not very inspired and smart to pursue a decent ideal.

Rush just talked about E.W. Jackson and ran a clip of the video on his show. Most of you have posted on this thread have expressed severe doubt about there being any blacks out there who will not vote for Obama again. I can tell that you who expressed such an opinion did not understand where Jackson is coming from. And you probably did not watch the video at post #2. I suggest that you reread his piece in the Washington Times and watch the video.

The reason why Jackson's words are so important is that Obama had a huge problem in trying to get the Black vote in that they are as a block Christian. He had to work hard to do a really big snooker job on them. And here is one Black man who is awake and speaking up.

I would think that there would be more than just a few on this forum who might appreciate his very sincere effort.

Probably the promise of freebies and bennies from FDR. They certainly were very receptive to his pitch.
