Republicans: An old, white, dying breed of voter?
Wash Times ^

Posted on 11/25/2012 9:55:22 AM PST by Altura Ct.

The Republicans are old white men, red necks and racists. They're in thrall to tea-baggers, who do not understand or give a darn about minorities.

If only other Republicans knew how often I had this hateful brew (hatred of white male conservatives is still socially acceptable on the left) shoved down my throat. But what's been directed at me personally is worse: I have been called a sell-out, hater of a brother (meaning Obama), and numerous choice words I can't share here (hatred of conservative black women from the left is trickier, but even more heart-felt).

...It is time to lay down the tracks of a new "underground railroad," a movement to help a people who are in bondage to the Democratic Party find hope and encouragement in the GOP, a movement that will wake up complacent Democrats and Republicans alike, a movement that will stop the hemorrhaging of the GOP. We will not be televised - the mainstream media can't imagine that we exist and we remain invisible to them - but we will be webvised, we will be heard online through bloggers, videos, e-mails and text messages, twitters, Facebook and more. We can no longer be shut out. We are the voice of the 21st century and we will be heard. If the RNC continues to think of blacks and Latinos as an afterthought, the GOP will continue its genteel decline and forfeit any chance of victory in 2016.

...Mitt Romney was doomed to fail when the Republican party failed to develop a clear and coherent agenda to appeal to blacks, Latinos, and other non-white people.

The republicans are more interested in courting the globalists than the conservatives. They are really left centrists instead of the far left demoRats.

Cutting edge. Force every government action to be defended on Constitutional ground. Freedom is just another way of saying nothing left to lose.

Blacks pig out, face first, in the racial spoil system trough. The only possible message Republicans can attract blacks with is “See, we told you we’d run out of food.”

Hmmmmm ..?? VP Biden, Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, Patrick Leahy .. somehow I believe these are OLD WHITE MEN who are all DEMOCRATS!!!!

We must never forget .. the dems/libs always use a method called “projection” to spew all over the repubs.

But .. their habit always seems to backfire on them because the projectionists have one common theme: They blame the repubs for doing things or having done things - that actually THE DEMS ARE NOW DOING OR HAVE DONE IN THE PAST.

Thus, when they complain about the repubs being old white men, they conveniently forget to look at their own ranks. The only minorities that are dems .. are those that have bought into the hype - repubs don’t like minorities.

Geeeeeeeeeeee ... what does that say about the dems .. it says the dems don’t really like minorities .. they just USE them to make themselves look better.

I can relate to a lot of what she’s saying. I believe in the Constitution (all of it), limited government, the free market, rule of law, traditional values, strong defense, etc., but as a black urban dweller, there isn’t a whole lot about the GOP that I can really hang my hat on. They’re not even on the playing field anywhere around me. I live in a one-party state really, and I am just a lone voice of dissent shouting in the wilderness. Hard to convert very many people that way.

Utter bull$hit.

Any article claiming republicans have been anti-immigrant as opposed to anti-illegal is just buying into the democrat lie.

As for rejecting black conservatives, Allen West, Herman Cain, and previously Allen Keys were rejected by the establishment rinos, not by the conservatives.

Calling into black radio stations? (were they still believe AIDS was created by the CIA to kill blacks) Thats the big plan?

I agree on the churches- but when Romney refused to bring up Obamas support for abortion and homosexual marriage, what else exactly is the black church going to agree with you about that takes them away from dems?

They said the same thing after POS FDR’s reelection in 1936. In fact, the issues working against FDR in 1936 were not unlike those working against der Fuehrer in 2012. The National Socialist Democrat Party would like to believe that as they believed it then but they are always proven wrong.

Conservatives need to start an underground railroad OUT of the GOP and into a new party of their own. The GOP only demands our votes, and then expects Conservatives to sit down, shut up and do as they are told when they adopt the agenda of the MarxoFascist Left.

What the country needs - is a clear line of demarcation between Americans and the Leftists. That cannot be done within the GOP, the Establishment has made that clear, and rigged it’s party to ensure Conservatives will forever remain irrelevant in national politics as far as they are concerned.

The GOP is not an opposition party to the Left - it is a cooperative with the Left. The GOP serves as a vehicle of treason to ideals of Conservatives and to destroy them from within the party they assumed represented their ideology.

All intrusive and powerful government is the goal of both national parties now. They cooperate and work together. The only differences between them now, is one is full-blown Marxist and the other wants control of the scraps and a finger in the money pit to continue the Establishment oligarchy in power.

It’s time to target young men of all colors. Tell them about the fraud and abuse of power going on - anger them, enrage them!

Then tell them 10-steps to take control from the elites.

Young women will follow the young men.

In other words, Republicans need to pander to the Democrat base of moochers by offering more "free stuff".
Sounds like a plan!

Include me out.

The Republicans/GOP/RNC need to start:

1) Calling the Democrats what they now are: SOCIALISTS (Why help the liberals hide behind their rosy label?)
2) Announce that EVERYONE in the Democrat party WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS regardless of their race, gender or LGBT status (NO MORE HIDING behind their race cards, gender cards, etc. to commit treason or illegal acts. FOR EXAMPLE: Susan Rice was complicit in an 0bama cover-up in Benghazi by promoting the LIE that Benghazi was a 'protest over a video' and not a terrorist attack. The Democrats responded that anyone accusing Rice of lying is "racist and sexist" because she is a black female. The Republicans need to IMMEDIATELY respond that "Susan Rice will be held accountable for her actions regardless of her race or gender. PERIOD!")
3) Call Democrats LIARS when they lie
4) Call Democrats TREASONOUS when engaging in treasonous activity such as funding Muslim Brotherhood, etc.
5) CALL THE MEDIA OUT!!!. Accuse the media of BIAS, LYING, COMPLICIT IN OBAMA'S COVER-UPS.. CALL THE MEDIA OUT AND BASH THEM FOR THEIR LIBERAL BIAS.
6) IMPEACH OBAMA for his laundry list of impeachable offenses, including INELIGIBILITY to be POTUS (his father was not a U.S. citizen at the time of his birth), F&F, bombing Libya without consent of Congress, illegal investments (Solyndra), recess appointments while Congress not in recess, Cover-Up over Benghazi, funding terrorist groups, refusing to enforce DOMA, violation of his oath of office to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States, etc, etc, ETC.)
7) DEMAND that the State of Hawaii offer 0bama's ORIGINAL birth records for Congress' review or ALL Federal funding to Hawaii will be immediately terminated.

You are so full of crap, your breath stinks.

It will take much, much less work to show the rino/establishment GOPer’s the door than to establish a new party...think Libertarian Party...if you can.

Folks like you are the same as a Manchurian Candidate, you come in and divide and fracture in the guise of a friend when in fact you are an agent of the opposition.

One thing for certain, your plan will never come to fruition, because folks like you are too lazy to do anything except sit at your computer and bitch and complain rather than do any heavy lifting. Your misconceptions and downright BS confirms that.

The Democrats, with their “dear leader” at the head of it, are gloating now; but, as usual, pay no heed to the word of God that reads “pride goeth before a fall”. They’re busy telling Republicans what’s wrong with them; too busy to look in the mirror.

Guys, I think we’re overreacting here just a little. I’ll admit, I was completely demoralized at first, but I’ve come to realize that we will win eventually, and it might be sooner than we think.

We have 16 TRILLION DOLLARS in debt. This is insurmountable, and its only going to get worse under the socialists. How long can Obama keep this rotting structure standing? All it took to collapse Europe was a shudder from our housing market.
My point is, all of this will collapse, and some economists think it will be soon. There isn’t enough imaginary money in the world to fund a welfare state for our population.

Once the money is gone, once they can’t give out gifts anymore, people will have no choice but to vote conservative, because it will be the only alternative to widespread misery. Give it a little time, focus on the state legislatures and governorships, voting out RINOS as we did in 2010 etc., refine the conservative message as Reagan did, and we’ll be ready to strike when this nation falls to pieces.

“Men by their constitutions are naturally divided into two parties: 1. Those who fear and distrust the people, and wish to draw all powers from them into the hands of the higher classes. 2. Those who identify themselves with the people, have confidence in them, cherish and consider them as the most honest and safe, although not the most wise depositary of the public interests. In every country these two parties exist, and in every one where they are free to think, speak, and write, they will declare themselves. Call them, therefore, Liberals and Serviles, Jacobins and Ultras, Whigs and Tories, Republicans and Federalists, Aristocrats and Democrats, or by whatever name you please, they are the same parties still and pursue the same object. The last one of Aristocrats and Democrats is the true one expressing the essence of all.” —Thomas Jefferson to Henry Lee, 1824.

You’re projecting - you’re a slime for the party of Vichy to the MarxoFascists by calling principled Conservatives Manchurian Candidates.

Tell you what genius - when YOU accomplish showing the RINO establishments the door, then you’ll have an argument with fruits to back up your vapid claims that the GOP is the ONLY party for Conservatism.

Until then, they are a vichy party of the enemy, and I’ll never vote for or work again for a party of traitors working hand-in-hand with the MarxoFascists and adopting their ideology while slamming and punishing Conservatives.

Keep screaming though about Conservatives being enemies - you illustrate yourself to be nothing but a shill for the enemy.

If it is true as this writer claims the black community is not monolithic and share conservative values then why pray tell do they vote over 90% for the Robin Hood party? Why have they chosen to self segregate since the Civil Rights movement and why is it always someone else’s “responsibility” to reach out and understand them? If they actually believed in conservative values they would care a whole lot less about how much others can do for them and a whole lot more about their individual freedom and personal responsibility.

This woman’s diatribe against racist white old men isn’t intelligent analysis, it’s a cliche, a template brought to the black community by their plantation masters of the Democrat Party. What’s truly sad is I’ve heard this drivel for the last 40 years and it is no more true now than it was then. As the Godfather of the current Democrat Party, Vladamir Lenin, once opined, “A lie told often enough becomes truth”

God help this Republic if the answer is what can you do for me instead of what can I do for myself. Unfortunately, I fear we have reached that tipping point.
