The Left Tries To Drag Black GOP Conservatives Back Onto The Plantation – UPDATED
A must see speech from last night's RNC Convention line-up is former black democrat Artur Davis, who officially seconded Obama's nomination at the 2008 DNC Convention. But something tells me Mr. Davis has been ready for the lashing he knew would be coming when he loudly spoke out against Obama... and here is one from the collective that is the CBC (Congressional Black Caucus), sans Rep. Allen West's signature.
We are writing to express our disdain over several recent comments you have made about the important issues facing voters in November, your total distortion of President Barack Obama’s record, and your complete flip-flop on certain core principles you once held dear. Given the magnitude of your recent transformation, we can only conclude that, rather than a true conversion, your actions are the result of a nakedly personal and political calculation or simmering anguish after failing to secure the Democratic nomination for governor of the State of Alabama in 2010.
It’s unconscionable that you now claim Voter ID laws do not violate civil rights or suppress minority voter turnout...
We have come to the disturbing conclusion that your recent public statements have no basis in real policy or political disagreements, but rather they stem from transparent opportunism and a personal determination to overcome failing to win the Alabama Democratic primary for Governor in 2010. We regret that you have chosen this course, but are confident that the American people see your pronouncements for what they are and come to the same disappointing conclusion of your former colleagues.
Then there is Mayor Mia Love and some non-racist hacker into her Wiki page where she is called a “dirty, worthless wh*re who sold her soul in the name of big business” and the standard liberal/left tag of "house ni**er" ...
Mind you, this is after a Yahoo reporter gets caught off-camera on ABC's live feed with some interesting remarks:
People who turned to ABC News for live streaming video coverage of the Republican National Convention on Monday were treated to a strange off-camera conversation about “black people drowning.”
“Feel free to say it,” one woman can be heard saying, “they’re not concerned at all. They’re — they are happy to have a party with black people drowning.”
Who’s the “they” in that sentence and why was her comment about “black people drowning” met with laughter?
Listen carefully at the very beginning of the video...
UPDATE: Yahoo News fires David Chalian
"David Chalian's statement was inappropriate and does not represent the views of Yahoo!. He has been terminated effective immediately. We have already reached out to the Romney campaign, and we apologize to Mitt Romney, his staff, their supporters and anyone who was offended."
And then there was MSNBC's "whitewashing" of the speeches given by minority republicans, proving once again the republicans ARE the party of racist white people. Honey (God bless her) was one of the 10-12 viewers who watched any of the MSNBC coverage last night and reports this much:
For the fun of it I taped it all on C-Span and went between Fox and MSNBC to see what they were saying. MSNBC showed only a couple of speeches and talked over all the rest. Here are some paraphrases of their comments - hilarious and unbelievable:
"They barely mentioned Romney. That is shocking." Of course if you don't play the speeches, then the audience does not get to hear that most of the early speakers mentioned Romney every other word and so you get to think that what they are saying must be correct. The ones they showed had other things to bring out and did lead up to the conclusion that Romney is the one.
"In an odd construct, Santorum, always so closely identified with the social issues will not be doing them in his speech. He is under instruction to do economic things".
Then when Santorum spends a lot of time talking social issues big time, as if economic issues are not also social issues, they cover their tracks and say they are surprised that he talked so much and so boldly about those unpopular social issues.
When Christie spoke, they said it fell flat and was a disappointment. Then Rachel turned to the best person to analyze the oratorical quality of the speech. Who should she turn to who would be the ideal person for that? who is the one who knows all about soaring oratory?
Who but Al Sharpton? He readily concluded that it was terrible rhetorically and fell flat.
After Ann Romney's speech, their easy conclusion was to ask if she did her job. Did she humanize Romney? Is it possible? They complimented her but then added that when Romney came out, he still looked like a robot, as if he was brought out on wheels, whatever that means. "And nothing, even her speech, could change the fact that he just doesn't cut it, he only comes across as mechanical." (In comparison to Obama who is so perfectly human and cares.)
I could keep going on like this. They talked and talked because they had to instead of letting us see the speeches for ourselves. So little time. So much propaganda to instill in the audience. They are so lame. Rachel I always found adorable. Never agree with a word she says, but she is cute. She assumes she is witty and above the rest of us. But then Bill Maher thinks he is witty, too. The rest of the panel looked like petulant school children whom no one pays attention to. They are right about that last bit.
But I have to include here the most unbelievable of the lot. This was done with a straight face..
After Anne Romney spoke and they "analyzed" the speech, Rachel turned to an expert who has had lots of experience having been to a lot of these things. The newsman on the floor was to tell us how it went over there in the hall. His response? And he wasn't ashamed of his audacity (of his hope). "The speech was good, but it did not have great emotional impact here. It did not have anywhere near the impact of the fire that exploded when Palin gave her speech."
Do you remember how the left demonized Palin and mocked her? I don't remember anyone on the left praising the electricity in the room when Palin spoke; is my memory incorrect? If they did say that it was only in the context of the fact that our side is so stupid this is what passes for excitement for us.
Usually I can't listen to the left for more than a minute. But this was so hilarious, I was able to take doses of two minutes each.
Thankfully, Sen. Marco Rubio is no longer a "Latino" but just some racist conservative white guy ... so maybe his speech tonight will manage some airtime on MSNBC, huh?
Pull on your hip-waders and mount-up. The next few weeks are going to get a hell of a lot deeper.
