The 2014 midterm elections are mostly over (there are a few run off races that yesterday’s election generated), and the Republicans won big. Took back control of the Senate, and won several key Governor races. They replaced democrat governors in Maryland, Massachusetts, and Illinois. They also elected the first black Senator from the South since Reconstruction. Think about that one for a minute. Southern democrats never elected a black man or woman to the Senate. Republicans also elected a black woman, Mia Love, to the House of Representatives in Utah. Ask any “tolerant” democrat, and they will tell you that Utah is full of “racist” Mormons.
Now let us turn to the words of the First Beard of these United States, Michelle Obama. On TV One (“Where Black Life Unfolds”), she said the following:
“And that’s my message to voters, this isn’t about Barack, it’s not about person on that ballot– its about you. And for most of the people we are talking to, a Democratic ticket is the clear ticket that we should be voting on, regardless of who said what or did this– that shouldn’t even come into the equation.”
Followed by: “…I give everyone full permission to eat some fried chicken after they vote. Only after, if you haven’t voted… You make a good point. Because I am, I do talk about health. But I think that a good victory for Democrats on Tuesday, you know, should be rewarded with some fried chicken.”
She is telling a predominantly black audience, that they should vote democrat, not on the issues, but because of the color of their skin. The fried chicken statement is left as an exercise to the reader. I do need to add a disclaimer, while I am not black, I did spend a good chunk of my childhood south of the Mason-Dixon line, and I do appreciate good fried chicken. If you have spend your entire life in the land of Yankees, you just wouldn’t understand.
Mr. Jarlsberg summed it up well: “As the campaign boiled down to its final hours, the Democrats decided to quit pretending that they had anything to offer in terms of ideas or successful accomplishments and instead made blatant, unsupported accusations of racism in order to browbeat black Americans into voting like racists.”
Mrs. Obama’s words bring to mind what our Dear Leader wrote (or had ghost written) in his book “Dreams of my Father.”
“A plantation. Black people in the worst jobs. The worst housing. Police brutality rampant. But when the so-called black committeemen came around election time, we’d all line up and vote the straight Democratic ticket. Sell our soul for a Christmas turkey.”
Now identify which party is the party of “racists”, and support your choice with actual facts.
