Race baiting tactics demonstrate a failure to communicate a positive message.
The Democrats use a very compelling strategy to keep certain demographics in their pocket: fear of the “what if.” They tell horror stories about how conservatives want to turn back the clock to a world in which slavery was the law, and women would walk ten paces behind their husbands. They tell lies about conservative ideology over, and over, and louder, and louder, and eventually, those lies become the truth, because it’s all they’ve ever heard. Meanwhile, those same Democrats–the ones telling women, and minorities that conservatives are the monsters under the bed–behave reprehensibly, and get off scot-free. It’s a classic trick of the propagandist, to pin upon your enemy your own bad behavior, and do it so loudly, continuously, and pervasively that no one can hear anything else.
The Democratic Party couldn’t care less about minorities; to them, minorities are a means to an end: votes. They have an overwhelming hold on the black vote because they tell black people that they are the victims of a racist superstructure. They then promise blacks that the Democratic Party will right all the wrongs of history, and treat them with the dignity they deserve. The thing is, liberal policies actually do great harm to the black community. The most recent example of talk versus reality is immigration. The Democrats are laser focused on amnesty, and Obama has promised it to millions of illegal immigrants after the election. However, a massive influx of amnestied illegals will do nearly irreparable harm to the black work force. According toBreitbart, Peter Kirsanow, a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, recently “advised the Congressional Black Caucus on Tuesday to oppose amnesty legislation backed by President Barack Obama and Democrats because it threatens to further devastate the employment opportunities for black Americans.”
According to Kirsanow:
“The obvious question is whether there are sufficient jobs in the low-skilled labor market for both African-Americans and illegal immigrants…The answer is no…unemployment rate for all black Americans – not just those with few skills – was 11.6 percent, more than twice the white unemployment rate of 5.3 percent…Illegal immigration has a disparate impact on African-American men because these men are disproportionately represented in the low-skilled labor force…it is likely that if illegal immigrants are granted legal status, more people will come to America illegally and will further crowd African-American men (and other low-skilled men and women) out of the workforce…Giving amnesty to illegal immigrants would only exacerbate this problem facing low-skilled men, who are disproportionately African-American.”
Despite the extraordinary negative impact that amnesty will have in the black community–not to mention on everything else–Obama, and the Democrats are aggressively pursuing it anyway. Their hearts only bleed for black Americans when the Party need votes; at all other times, their hearts are withered, and dried up. And certainly, when amnesty is enacted, and black unemployment skyrockets, the Democrats will find a way to blame–gasp–Republicans, because they need to feed the narrative that the Republican Party is dominated by racist, white men who want nothing more than to keep the black man down.
According to The Washington Times, Concerned Citizens of Cumberland County is distributing flyers listing 18 reasons to vote this election. Some of these fliers were posted on the cars outside churches known to be mostly attended by minorities. Here are several of those 18 reasons to vote:
“Land may be given to extremist groups to honor klansmen…Drug raids in only the Black community will continue if you don’t vote…Police officers will be allowed to continue to stop and arrest you for nothing if you don’t vote…They will continue to deny the working poor the right to health insurance if you don’t vote…You will continue to be a 3rd class citizen if you don’t vote.”
Additionally, according to The Washington Times, similar provocative material has been seen in Georgia. Flyers have been distributed by the state Democratic Party which display sickening, and manipulative pictures, and text. The flyers depict black children holding signs with “Don’t shoot” written on them, next to bloody handprints. The flyers also ominously state: “If you want to prevent another Ferguson…Vote.”
It is a deliberate, cynical, and vile attempt to incite fear, and anger among the black community in order to make sure blacks turn out in droves to vote for Democratic candidates, the very same candidates who support the amnesty that will hit the black community in the gut. And the thing is, it works. The Democratic Party routinely holds onto over 90% of the black vote in general elections.
The Democrats are running scared, so their race-baiting tactics are going into overdrive. Generally, they are a bit more subtle, but with no time left before today’s election, they are scrambling to whip up a frenzy within the constituency that could save them.
The Democrats do the same thing with women, and you can bet your life savings that going forward into 2016, the sexism conversation will ratchet up severely. Every criticism, every policy critique, and every furrowed brow will be scrutinized, and labeled as sexist–but only if it’s directed toward a Democrat. The Democratic machine can call Sarah Palin a c**t, Keith Olbermann can call Michelle Malkin a “mashed up bag of meat with lipstick on it,” Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone can talk about how he pictures Michelle Malkin with testicles in her mouth, radio host John Sylvester can call Condoleezza Rice an “Aunt Jemima,” Ed Schultz can call Laura Ingraham a “talk slut,” and no one bats an eye, because it’s ok to demean women, as long as they’re conservative. However, were someone to call Michelle Obama a c**t, or Hillary Clinton a whore, the world would grind to a halt because one must not demean women (unless they’re conservative).
The liberal machine is a beast with incredible power, and it has been used to place a stranglehold on minorities, women, gays, and any other group the Democrats have labeled victims of the evil, white Republican superstructure. It’s only going to get worse, and we cannot be afraid to call it like we see it. The truth will set us free, even if it makes us pariahs in the eyes of the media.
It’s time to stop playing nice. It’s time to call the Democrats what they are: racist, misogynistic, manipulators. Forget the media, it’s time to win
