The GOP and Racism, Yet Again
Tribune Media Services, by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 11/23/2012 7:36:15 AM

If the GOP wants to win more black votes, it will need to get a lot more “racist.” The scare quotes are necessary because I don’t think the Republican party is racist now (and, historically, the GOP has a lot less to answer for than the Democratic party does). But that hasn’t stopped a lot of people from slandering Republicans as racist for one reason or another. Right now, many in Washington — particularly the leadership of the Congressional Black Caucus — insist that Republican attacks on U.N. ambassador Susan Rice are racist and, yawn, sexist.

We need a black candidate who will proudly say he´s conservative while eating fried chicken.

Why isn´t the CBC screaming racist regarding the losses of Mia Love and Allan West?? Oh yeah, I forgot. Those white guys are DEMS.

If you actually take into account what the Congressional Black Caucus says and does, they should be called the un-conscious of the Congress. Oh, my goodness. That´s RACIST.

Mia Love and Rep. West were targeted specifically because they were black, a la Herman Cain because there can only be ONE black "headliner" and that could only be a demonrat Barack Huseein Obama

The meida was on a mission to take down ANY black candidate not approved by the libs in charge.

Personally, I´d like to see former Oklahoma Representative J. C. Watts make a political comeback on a national scale..

FTA: Any serious attempt by the GOP to win black votes won’t involve Republicans copycatting liberal policies. It will require going over the heads of the black and white liberal slanderers to offer a sincere alternative to failed liberal policies on schools, poverty, crime, etc. The more effective that effort, the more the GOP will be called racist.

I hope the GOP hears Jonah on this one!

They need to quit acting as though the racism charge is true. Every effort to "copycat" liberals, and kowtow to their demands, is implicit admission that their accusations are true.

That angers many of us because we know that we are not racist, and we don´t appreciate those who represent us implying the opposite.

Unless there was massive fraud in the election, the stupid zombies will believe whatever narrative the MSM is pushing, despite all evidence to the contrary.

The truth about the GOP and race does not matter. Just like the whole ridiculous war on women thing. No basis in truth but truth does not matter. Some Senate candidate says a stupid thing and Romney gets pegged with it. It doesn´t matter what down ticket Dems do and say. Somehow that´s no reflection on Obama at all. They´ll do it to the next guy too.

I´ve embraced my inner racist. I believe in the founding documents, I believe in Capitolism, Free Enterprise, a Limited Constitutional Republic, I believe in working for what I earn, I intentionally exceed expectations and I believe that government handouts come with strings.

I remember the first time that I was called a racist. I was asked what I thought of Jesse Jackson when he was running for president. I stated that Jackson is a complete idiot. I was labled a racist. The second time was when I agreed with a California proposition to not provide tax payer benefits to illegal aliens.

Since then, any time Ive been labled a racist I say, "fine, I´m a racist. Now tell me how my position is wrong".

Racism occurs when 95 percent of blacks vote for the black candidate in a Presidential election because he is....black.

Well done, Jonah! Glad to see the article as a Must Read.

The old Chinese proverb:Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. came to mind as I was reading Jonah´s article. I think it terrifies Democrats who hope it won´t become a reality in the black community. If it did, there goes their control.

As more young blacks graduate from college, they will begin to scratch their collective heads and wonder why Condoleeza Rice, Herman Caine, Allan West, Arthur Davis (newly converted), Mia Love, Ken Blackwell, and other lesser-known black politicians chose to be Republicans. Just calling these accomplished people "Uncle Toms" won´t cut it with better educated blacks. Sooner or later intellectual curiosity will kick in.

Susan Rice has been caught in a lie - maybe it´s not her fault, but she obviously lied to Congress and is, thus, damaged goods. Are we now expected to believe that the liar is a victim and the lie-catcher is a racist? Come on, give me a break - oh, I forgot, the lie-catchers are mostly old, white men and Republicans.

Republicans can turn the tables on the Dems by using Saul Alinsy´s Rules: loudly ridicule the Dems for equating a liar as a victim and the whistle-blower as a racist.

If blacks had a clue, and had studied in school, they would know that it was the Republicans freed the slaves in the Civil War. At first look, the freed slaves did not do well, they were used to certain housing and food and now they had to get jobs. It was a terrible war and has been years in sorting out the race thing.

Unless something drastically changes, I would not devote much time money nor money in trying to secure the Black Vote. For the most part, White Conservatives are toxic to Blacks.

I would spend virtually all my time in securing the Latino/Hispanic Vote as that Constituency is more aligned with the Conservative Message.

Exactly #2: Col. West was dealt a losing hand by the Dems. Hope he comes back strong, and soon.

As for Republican racism, if the CBC considers sneering "Get off my TV N***er"" whenever our traitorous dictator-in-chief shows up--though never using that hateful term with anyone else, well I guess they have a point.

The Republican party is the largest organization containing conservatives (who as individuals don´t intend to become liberals any time soon), so caving to black demands for more freebies and privilages risks losing conservatives to a separate party. Republicans would become the civilized country club democrat-lite.

My gut tells me that the democrat party has already marginalized itself into a collection of thugs, slugs, and hedonists that classic liberals like Pat Cadell can´t abide and will no longer support.

The minute I hear of ´our leadership´ meeting with the CBC or any "civil rights leader" will be the beginning of a party registration change.

What some liberals and black socialists have done is essentially set up a new performance standard, the "He or she did the best he or she could because of the current racism that he or she faces in this country" standard to protect incompetence, and since it appears to have worked in the election process it is not going to go away and will only get worse.

It just takes a little bit of brain power to understand what the Democrats are doing and to understand the unintended consequences.

Problem is, when you are taking entitlement and subsidy money from the government, controlled by Democrats, you´re not likely to use your brain for anything but gaming the system.

Race is not a field where the GOP can win. Obama and the media have whipped up anti-european-male racism to the tipping point. Allen West proves that not even running minorities will help. AS a matter of survival, I think it´s time to split the country.

Interesting to see that the Democrat party has now become one which is controlled and directed by white liberals, who then need to dole-out some "gifts" to a selected number of minorities, who are then very grateful so they tell the rest to fall in line.

So, as per Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, the Democrats are not minority-majority party.

Isn´t that apartheid-like?

Amen to #6.

#17 - why would you use an incendiary epithet like that? Calling him a Marxist pig or a lying Muslim illegal immigrant would be reasonable. But what virtue is there in tossing around dehumanizing labels like that, anyway? There may be places in Southie or the Deep South where it could be considered a mating call (as it will attract others who are proud to be bigots). But I´ve never considered Lcom to be one of those places.

In late February, the City University of New York announced that it had tapped Princeton economist and New York Times blogger Paul Krugman for a distinguished professorship at CUNY’s Graduate Center and its Luxembourg Income Study Center, a research arm devoted to studying income patterns and their effect on inequality. About that. According to a formal offer letter obtained under New York’s Freedom of Information Law, CUNY intends to pay Krugman $225,000, or $25,000 per month (over two semesters), to “play a modest role in our public events” and “contribute to the build-up” of a new “inequality initiative.” It is not

As predictable as the media silence to follow comes the news that New York City´s new left-wing mayor, who ran on a platform based in large part on raising taxes, paid an effective 8.3% tax rate in 2013 based on a total income of over $200,000. Mayor de Blasio and his wife made $167,047 in income, $52,000 in rental income on a second home in Park Slope, and reported charitable donations that totaled just 3% of their income, or $5,597.

Who’s Attending Eric Holder’s Off The

Attorney General Eric Holder‘s planned meeting with mainstream media outlets’ Washington bureau chiefs have been stalled after the Justice Department indicated that the conversations would be off-the-record. The New York Times‘ executive editor Jill Abramson was the first to decline the invitation, and shortly after the AP, CNN, CBS News and The Huffington Post followed suit. With much of the debate over the DOJ’s subpoena guidelines revolving around reporter James Rosen, Fox News clearly has a vested interest in the outcome of the meeting. While there appears to be a mini-campaign among Fox anchors to send Rosen himself to the meeting

Sorry, Rev, but Christianity isn´t

Posted By: Drive- 4/16/2014 7:48:54 AM     Post Reply
Here’s a thought for the day: Most people are “nice”, but Christians should be nice with a purpose. I am not a fan of the sitcom Rev, which depicts a vicar trying to be kind to his parishioners – with hilarious consequences. His congregation is small, full of delinquents, and the eponymous clergymen is often driven to drink by their unholy antics. Justin Welby disagrees with the show’s depiction of Anglican life because he notes that many churches are growing. The Rev’s, by contrast, conforms to a self-lacerating vision of Christianity as nice but niche. But self-laceration is the stock-in-trade of the

Louisiana GOP: Mary Landrieu ad fakery

Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu, in a neck-and-neck race for re-election, is taking a lot of criticism over a new ad -- her first this season -- depicting herself taking on "Washington" to protect the interests of Louisiana´s oil and gas industry. What Landrieu did to invite the ridicule was to re-create for her ad producers her own performance in a Senate hearing -- complete with set, supporting cast, fake nameplate, and even phony news chyrons -- to show her standing up for her state. The unspoken message of the ad -- something Landrieu could never say directly -- is that

When recently asked what she was most proud of from her time as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton replied that the office was like a “relay race.” “When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton,” she said. Mrs. Clinton was unable to cite any specific achievement, though she did make the rather dubious claim that “I think we really restored American leadership in the best sense.” Even some of her most ardent admirers couldn’t figure out a good answer to the question about her greatest achievement, during a discussion on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” As Ed

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
