The beginning of the end of pathological Democratic Party separateness
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. - Luke 12:34 (ESV)
Before Barack Hussein Obama, there was Lyndon Baines Johnson and 45 years of white guilt/race card-playing victimization monogamy. In the third year after white folks purged the guilt and gave the first Hawaiian-born (and defended by $5 Million lawyers), mixed-race, 20-year Rev. Hate-America Wright pew-parked, President the nukes, major cuckolding has commenced:
No wonder he's become such good pals with Al Sharpton.
President Obama's approval ratings among black voters plummeted last month to their lowest levels ever, while his support among Hispanics took a tumble in the same period, according to a surprising new poll released yesterday.
Blacks continue to back him by a wide margin, with 85 percent of respondents saying they approved of him in the latest Gallup poll.
But that number dropped a hefty 5 percentage points from last month, marking the lowest rating among that core constituency that he's had since taking office.
Recessions concentrate the mind
Great recessions impart reality muggings and, when coupled with the fact liberal policies fail even when implemented by similar skin-colored liberals, a change of past voting behavior may be in the offing.
Go South, young brother
This may be especially expected given the recent non-voting behavior of blacks with experience living with the consequences of liberal Democrat policies in Northern cities and states:
The Census reported that waves of blue state blacks fled the stagnant job opportunities, high taxes and rotten social conditions of the mostly blue northern states to seek better lives for themselves in the south.
The Census story is a shocker. First, according to the Times, the Blacks leaving tend to be the “younger and better educated”. Second, the three states Blacks left in largest numbers don’t just include snake-bit Michigan; the other two are Illinois and New York. Within those states, Chicago and the city of the New York (widely considered among the most successful cities in the country) are the places Blacks are deserting. 17 percent of the Black flight from Big Blue is from the Empire State; after almost a century of trailblazing social policy, New York State has succeeded in creating the most hostile environment for Blacks in the country.
It gets worse. One would think that the Blacks who choose to stay in the cold, unwelcoming North would cluster in the cities where more liberal and humane governance models mandate such generous policies as “living wage” laws and where all the beautiful features of the blue social model can be experienced at full strength.
But one would be wrong. Blacks across the North are fleeing the urban paradises of liberal legislation and high public union membership for the benighted suburbs.
Institutional Suburbanism - Join us!
One of the best kept secrets in modern America circa AD 2011, is that most whites got over race long ago. One of the most ridiculous myths is that there exists some sort of "white privilege" that makes life so much easier when pale of face.
USA Today recently combined the two lies with worries of racial "re-segregation" due to so-called racially-motivated "white flight" and neighborhood schools despite census, poll, and other realities to the contrary, such as that:
- The late Strom Thurmond's son recently had the "privilege" of losing a race for Congress to Tim Scott (pictured with Allen West, above), a black man in an 85% white Palmetto State district that covers Fort Sumter, 150 years on; and that
- There are no two finer tea partiers in America than Florida's Allen West, with Scott in the House of Representatives, and Georgia's Herman Cain on the 2012 presidential campaign trail.
Somehow I don't think so many blacks appreciate Attorney General Eric Holder's declaration of America as "race cowards" from a man that promotes the stereotype of billy club-wielding New Black Panther intimidators of whites as acceptable in the black community.
Somehow I don't think those blacks fleeing racist New York cops appreciate beer summits made necessary by gratuitous insults hurled at the thin blue line in Cambridge. Nor do they appreciate false charges of name calling at Glenn Beck-ralliers for MLK's Dream.
Do blacks really wish to replace the next FBI Director with 10-years of anti-law enforcement apologizers for al Qaeda that will use the Voting Rights Act to thwart the census with false charges of "institutional racism" against those they voted for with their feet?
Somehow I don't think so.
Barry Bond's greatest crime was against Hammerin' Hank Aaron, not Babe Ruth
After all, its the GOP that tried to save blacks in The District from the sweet nothings of Planned Non-Parent-Abortion-hood. Grant Hill chose Duke rather than the Fab Five Uncle Democrat Tomhood of Jalen Rose. Cam Newton is no less worthy of being called out for slothful late arrivals for NFL practices, and now its OK to call a black man lazy in America without having one's heart ripped out and examined for venality.
Are Blacks fleeing the North for the South because they agree with Obama that whites who chose Hillary are scared "bitter clingers" to God, guns and bigotry, with "tribal" attitudes? Hardly. Blacks just wanna pursue God-ordained Life, Liberty and happiness with the choice of having a gun to defend their homes, not to mention more plentiful Sun Belt jobs. And while they are at it, they would appreciate less mocking of their struggles with skyrocketing energy prices from the Chief job-destroying Executive since Hoover.
More and more blacks are joining us whites that put our pants on one leg at a time before we walk out into a world that doesn't stand up and cheer when it sees our skin, and for whom it is just as hard to afford Le Seuer peas and the gasoline to get to Kroger.
If Tim Scott can break the lily-white establishment ice, maybe some rough around the edges tea partier whites can! No need for racial appeals. Most members of the Party of Lincoln and Reagan came over based on the human issues of liberty, prosperity and peace through strength, rather than the usual class, race and envy appeals of the party that has Bill Clinton show New York's McCall the back door.
I suspect more will be joining us in a Republican Party that rejects the racial politics of the senior Clarence Thomas-insulter Senator from Nevada ( see also Illinois) and the long form birth certificate-challenged Commander-in-Chief of Middle East apology tours.
The last refuge of a liberal may be racism, but what the non-racial conservative majority that refuse to swim in the media and Democrats cesspool realize is that the last refuge and best tour for blacks ends with the call letters of Atlanta's 750-WSB-AM clear channel talk radio:
Welcome South Brother!
