If you were in any way unclear why the Republican Party is unable to build any measurable minority base…let’s just review recent history. This isn’t 1964 Mississippi…this is 2009 with an African-American president. Yes, the GOP is clinging tightly to the 20th century. God bless their little racist hearts. They’re so cute, yes they are (pinching their cheeks).
Let’s review the past 12 months through the eyes of GOP racism at its unparalleled best. OF COURSE the GOP does poorly recruiting African-Americans. Who in the hell wants to be associated with a party without outright contempt for you and anyone who looks like you? And Mo’Kelly is only referencing the PUBLIC gaffes by party leadership. Mind you, this is all POST the death of Jesse Helms.
Keep it up Republicans, you’ve just ensured another 50 years of African-American loyalty to the Democratic Party. That stale argument of Democrats taking African-Americans for granted is lukewarm on its best day, especially when we have this RECENT history in which to prove that the Republican Party is and will always be the party of “Southern Politics.”
Yes, welcome to the “post-racial” America of the 21st century. We may be in the 21st century, but the GOP has a stranglehold on 1964 and just won’t let it and the rest of the 20th century go.
“JUST HEARD OBAMA IS GOING TO IMPOSE A 40% TAX ON ASPIRIN BECAUSE IT’S WHITE AND IT WORKS.”
Sherri Goforth, an executive assistant for Tennessee State Rep. Diane Black (R-Gallatin), sent this picture out to other legislative staffers.
Goforth admitted to sending the email, but she apologized only for sending it to the wrong people.
“I went on the wrong email and I inadvertently hit the wrong button,” Goforth said.
“I’m very sick about it, and it’s one of those things I can’t change or take back.”
6.15.09 – South Carolina GOP operative
Over the weekend, a gorilla escaped from a zoo in Columbia, and according to the New York Daily News, DePass just couldn’t resist what he saw as the perfect opportunity for humor, updating his status message to read,
“I’m sure it’s just one of (First Lady) Michelle’s ancestors – probably harmless.”
6.4.09 - GOP operative Manuel Miranda
“By the way, Hispanic polls, Hispanic surveys, indicate that Hispanics think just like everyone else.
We’re not like African Americans. We think just like everybody else.”
Chip Saltsman, the former Tennessee state Republican chairman who ran Mike Huckabee’s underfunded but shrewd bid for the GOP’s presidential nomination. Remember him? Saltsman wanted to be Republican national chairman, and, apparently as part of his campaign, he sent his associates a Christmas gift consisting of songs by the satirist Paul Shanklin.
The title track, sung in a voice meant to impersonate Al Sharpton, is Barack the Magic Negro. It parodies then president-elect as a Black man acceptable to whites. Another song, Star Spanglish Banner, disparages Latinos.
“Just from what little I’ve seen of her and Mr. Obama, Sen. Obama, they’re a member of an elitist-class individual that thinks that they’re uppity,” Westmoreland said.
Asked to clarify that he used the word “uppity,” Westmoreland said, “Uppity, yeah.”
At an April 12 event in his district, Kentucky Rep. Geoff Davis (R) said of Obama: “I’m going to tell you something: That boy’s finger does not need to be on the button.
He could not make a decision in that simulation that related to a nuclear threat to this country.”
Feel free to share this with your Black Republican friends…all 3 of them.
