The American people have grown tired of the same old rhetoric and political game playing with respect to race. But that isn’t stopping the divide and conquer game players. The latest salvo, issued by someone named Chauncey Devega over at Salon, is meant to destroy Ben Carson, in fact to mark all Republicans, as racist. It looks like Eric Holder was right…some of us are afraid to talk honestly about issues of race. But Mr. Holder, Republicans are not cowards, and it sure isn’t Ben Carson, who is afraid to talk honestly. I give you an excerpt from a bomb tossing mudslinger over at Salon:
“The Republican Party is the United States’ largest white identity organization, and openly uses white racial resentment — along with old fashioned racism — to win the support of white voters. – Chauncey Devega, Salon Magazine. (emphasis mine)
Man, it takes a lot of cheek to make such a blatantly stupid remark! The candidates in the Democrat Party this year are tired old white people. The Republican field includes not only variety with respect to race but candidates who possess courageous political verve on issues of race. On the Republican side we find two Hispanic Senators, an Indian American governor, an accomplished black surgeon, several white men of both service and industry, and an accomplished white woman. Clearly the Republicans are appealing to the people rather than hyphenated people or only whites.
It also takes a lot of nerve to attack a black conservative from someone who (apparently) associates with the party that’s been using blacks, in fact any minority they can cultivate for political gain since the sixties. There’s a litmus test in the Democrat Party now; no independent thinkers allowed!
The Republican field is a kaleidoscope that includes governors, medical doctors, Senators, and champions of industry who refuse to be slaves to imposed politically correct speech or the bullying tactics that have kept people of color manageable, docile, stuck in programs, hating Republicans…and voting Democrat (virtually, “on the plantation”).
When Eric Holder said we were a nation of cowards, he signaled the need to bravely tread where the PC crowd will never go. Ben Carson and others are daring to tread this path. We find ourselves in another election cycle. What are we hearing from leftists like Devega who seems to favor talking smack? He (She?) writes and article that serves no other purpose than labeling opponents and their party as racist. it follows the tired tactics used to avoid conversation, deflect from the issues, and personally attack and destroy opponents. I’m guessing this radical legacy is finally catching up to activist Democrats. Consider the language used against Ben Carson and other black conservatives in this article:
Ben Carson is not alone in his twisted fantasy land. He is joined by other black conservatives — a select group of racial mercenaries who are routinely trotted out on Fox News and elsewhere — who, to great approval from white conservatives, also repeat the same anti-black propaganda.
This utterly false and demeaning description of Ben Carson and others is followed by a list of so called lies, each of which contain fabricated interpretations from a left perspective to keep the real Democrat legacy of racism, deprivation, poverty and violence out of the conversation. Activists like Devega never fail to twist alternate points of view, to distort history or the meaning behind a metaphor and the seriousness behind absurdities. These radicals can keep on talking but they can no longer hide from the facts found in the above links.
A nation-wide poll will find this bunch snarling in their beer:
…(a) nationwide survey found that 24% of Republicans back Carson, compared with 17% who say they support Trump. Marco Rubio came in third with 11% and Carly Fiorina fourth at 9%. Jeb Bush, once considered a prohibitive favorite, ranked fifth with just 8% support, which was a point lower than those who say they are still undecided.
A black man, two Hispanics and a woman are among the top four in the Republican field. Given this astounding unprecedented reality the divisive left can’t easily label Republicans “racist” without looking like da*n fools. So tearing at the candidates becomes their only tactical offense. Is that smart? Is that what Americans want to hear? Who among us will rightly call them out as racist bullies for continuing in these cowardly, despicable acts? And what will Democrats do should Carson be elected and his policies help to inspire and uplift minorities? Will they continue to follow the same old playbook?
Minorities deserve a heads up this election cycle; they have done very poorly under Barack Obama’s leadership:
NAACP President: Blacks Worse Off Under Obama – Western Journalism
Tavis Smiley: ‘Black Americans Have Lost Ground Under Obama’ – Huffington Post
Here’s another useful fact. Minorities, in fact all Americans accept for the very wealthy, will do poorly under any Democrat candidate now running for president because all of them prefer growing the size of government to growing the size and buying power of our wallets.
Republicans are not racist any more than Democrats or minorities are racist. An honest look at any group will turn up a few racist supporters, but it’s always just a few. The question is, in which party are “the few” running the show? Since the sixties radicals on the left have worked hard and taken over leadership of the Democrat Party using tactics like the ones used in this article.
It’s time to end divisive rhetoric and demeaning remarks in our political discourse so we can have that honest conversation Eric Holder said he wanted. But somehow I doubt that people like Devega will get on board. So as long as they continue to smear ur candidates and party I will be here to rebut their onerous statements.
I leave you with the wisdom of Dr. Ben Carson, a man that has lived his message:
“Success is determined not by whether or not you face obstacles, but by your reaction to them. And if you look at these obstacles as a containing fence, they become your excuse for failure. If you look at them as a hurdle, each one strengthens you for the next.” – Ben Carson, Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story.
That’s good advice for all people…and why not? Shouldn’t his message be the same for all groups?
