WASHINGTON, April 14, 2013 – Inner City unemployment, crime, hopelessness and slums: In these issues we see Obama standing proudly on the foundation that others have built and adding his own accomplishments.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt got the ball rolling originally. It is not widely known, because liberals control the narrative of recent history through their death grip on academia and mass media, but there were widespread slums in Washington D.C. going all the way back to the FDR-era.
None of his New Deal programs had any effect on eradicating them. In fact the opposite was true, they grew exponentially and not just in D.C. but all over the country. Where welfare programs go, slums, ghettos and barrios follow.
The Welfare State eroded the work ethic, morals and family stability of all those it touched, from its very inception. It is ironic that while Democrats now applaud the abolition of slavery, not only was their party the party of slavery, but was also the party of resistance to the emancipation of slaves.
The Democrats’ resistance to abolition ultimately was unsustainable. But, since blacks could no longer be held in a position of servitude, perhaps they could serve another purpose. They could be coaxed to become recipients of government enforced wealth transfers in exchange for adopting the role of a growth engine in the Democrat political base, thus fueling a electoral realignment.
The simple reality is that they moved off one plantation and marched directly on to another one. In this social plan, the Black has been shown his ‘place’ by the Democrats, and predictably following the pull of the lowest common denominator of human nature, has willingly accepted that place. If ever there was a social plan created to fulfill the earnest desires of racists, the Welfare State has to be it.
Then came LBJ and the next phase of massive government expansion in social programs – this time called, the ‘Great Society’. More welfare and government housing, more ghettos and urban crime. A succession of Democrat politicians, most notably Ted Kennedy – leading up to the present day, have expanded the nightmare of the Urban existence, while promising to alleviate it.
All of which leads us back full circle to 2014, with Obama, who made a lot of promises to Blacks and other minorities which have all turned out to be empty.
Enter the launch of Black Conservatives Fund. In the tradition of accomplished black conservatives like J.C. Watts, Lt. Col. Allen West, Dr. Ben Carson, Mayor Mia Love, Senator Tim Scott (SC) and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, the Black Conservative Fund reflects the desire to promote conservative ideals and draw qualified black conservative candidates from the local to national level.
The Black Conservative Fund begins today raising funds and reaching out to the black community promoting constitutional policies and limited government. This is quite an interesting development, given the earlier history of blacks in Congress. According to the Council for African American Republican Leadership (CAARL):
Blacks entered Congress in 1869 as members only of the Republican Party. In fact, all of the first black congressmen were Republicans until 1935 when the first black Democrat was finally elected to Congress.
Some of these original dignitaries include: Sen. Hiram Rhodes Revels (R-Miss.) – 1869, Rep. Joseph Rainey (R-S.C) – 1869, Rep. Jefferson Franklin Long (R-Ga.) – 1870, Rep. Robert Brown Elliot (R. S.C.) – 1871, and Gov. Pinckney Pinchback (R-La.) – 1872.
Anita Moncrief, a founding member on Black Conservative Fund’s board of advisers, and the key whistleblower on the ACORN election fraud outlines the purpose and inspiration that is the foundation of BCF’s aims and objectives:
All across America, black conservatives are running for office in record numbers. The lock that the liberals have held on the black vote is slowly but surely breaking. An entirely new generation of black leaders is stepping forward to help save this nation. They believe that the welfare state and corrupt education system are destroying our future. They understand that big government has created nothing but big problems. Not only that, they are willing to stand up and fight back against the Left-wing race baiters of the Democratic party.
