WASHINGTON, March 11, 2016 – The Democrats’ nominee predictably will come to the Democratic convention well-armed with as many race baiting slogans and themes to unleash there as possible. Already, Hillary and her mainstream media surrogates are pulling the KKK and David Duke hatchets out of their playbook to be used against GOP nominee frontrunner Donald Trump.
But here is the real deal: It truly does not matter to the democrats who the front runner has been or will be. The race card has been slammed down on the podium at every democrat national presidential convention for decades. This tradition has been honored as long as the donkey party leaders could run away from their own history of bigotry, racism and race intimidation, whether it practiced in the south, the northern cities like Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland or New York.
Whenever inequality or racial disparity existed in the 19th and 20th century, there were Democrat officials standing there proudly to make certain the equality of jobs or education was kept out of sight and definitely out of reach of blacks. Instead democrats divert attention away from their history of bigotry and towards GOP candidates and particularly presidential candidates like Trump.
Let’s take Donald Trump’s dismissal of former KKK leader David Duke’s endorsement. Trump kicked Duke and his offer to the curb not once but twice, yet ABC News decided that that was not enough and asked Trump yet again to deny Duke as if he were Peter being asked by the Romans to deny Christ 3 times.
When does not mean no, unless of course you are Hillary Clinton and you are talking about missing emails, servers or Benghazi.
Standing on the sidelines as this mainstream media sideshow continued were Florida senator Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush, salivating at the prospect of denouncing Trump for not screaming his repudiation of Duke from the roof of Trump Towers. The Hillary forces simply had to lay in wait and let the GOP as well as the other equally unqualified fact truth tellers create yet one more talking point to be used at the Democrat convention and in the general election: “Republicans are racist and they support the KKK”
Sure, Marco and Jeb wanted to score points with the mainstream media to show how adamant they are in standing up for racial equality and all the rest that this should mean to the mainstream press. But they don’t get it.
The mainstream alphabet soup media is not interested in showcasing how stellar their claims as GOP presidential candidates are in torching Donald Trump. They only want to use inaccurate claims of alleged racist leanings of Trump to paint all GOP leaders, state and local candidates with the same tainted brush.
Why not take a breath and examine the facts and let truth rise from the ashes that Hillary has set fire to the truth to? Why not play statesman instead of mainstream media stooge and factually point out how Bill Clinton regarded then-Senator Barack Obama as nothing no more qualified than to be a water boy. Bill Clinton said it and Hillary Clinton did not deny it.
But that would take political courage as well as foresight to understand that political war is a series of battles. Sometimes you must rise above the fray and appear as a leader and not as a pawn waiting to score a point and then lose the entire war.
Now, Hillary has to be even more determined to use the gift of race bating missives that were so willingly handed to her by Marco and Jeb as well as 2012 GOP presidential loser Mitt Romney. With her loss to declared Socialist, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, in the Michigan primary, she must be thinking blacks who were her firewall in the south were waking up and ready to leave the Clinton plantation.
Her victory was denied in large part due to blacks in Detroit not going to the polls in blind obedience and instead voting for Sanders by giving him over 30 percent of their vote.
Blacks who are in attendance as well as those watching the national democrat coronation convention of Hillary Clinton this summer must be ready with their notepads to write down her calls to stand against GOP racism and see if there is any ounce of fact in them. Also be ready to compare the misrepresentations with the facts from their own experience and the experience of their parents and grandparents.
Blacks must be ready to ask the questions and seek the truth to actually name one thing that Hillary Clinton or the democrats in their city, school system or state has done that has helped their child receive an education, get a job, protected them or their community from thousands of murders, home invasions and funerals due to black on black crime.
This is the hard bigotry of democrats that is unspoken and is real each and every day in each and every household, urban school or unemployment line. Race baiting slogans do not fix these problems nor create solutions.
It is time for blacks to wake up and realize that the politics of race has been played against them for so long that they may not know what being free to vote their mind feels like. In 2016 try it out in November. Future generations are counting on it.Click here for reuse options!
