In Part 3, we are going to look at the aftermath of this event and see how liberal black people somehow managed to be responsible for ruining it–not the black conservatives that ran it or the racists that attended it. We’ll see how events are described when K. Carl Smith thinks you haven’t seen the tape.
This is Part 2 of a video about a video. It chronicles a breakout session at CPAC 2013 led by black conservative, K Carl Smith. Mr. Smith believes that Republicans can improve their minority outreach by declaring themselves to be “Frederick Douglass Republicans” and thereby somehow making themselves immune from charges of racism.
During the session, a white separatist stands to advocate for segregation and expresses doubts about the privations of slavery.
I believe it is nothing less than a Rosetta Stone for understanding the dynamic between black conservatives, white conservatives, and black people.
In this part, we look at how black conservatives are used by the right-wing to further their goals– often at the expense of black people–and watch in horror as a white separatist is given free rein while a black woman is shouted down.
This is a video about a video. If you haven’t seen the video over on Kim Brown’s channel, you should definitely check it out. http://youtu.be/bVn97mSXQTk
For parts 2 and 3 of this series, I will also be using additional footage of the session–including this great clip from Katy Jordan: http://youtu.be/WlP9QFxF1q8
It chronicles a breakout session at CPAC 2013 led by black conservative, K Carl Smith. I believe that session, “Trump the Race Card: Are You Sick and Tired of Being Called a Racist and You Know You’re Not One?” was a microcosm of every issue surrounding the dynamic between black conservatives, white conservatives, racists, liberals, and black people. Please share, rate and comment!
Pat Robertson recently suggested that Americans don’t witness as many miracles as people do else where because we are too educated. “Those people overseas didn’t go to Ivy League Schools…we know about all of these things that says God isn’t real…Overseas they’re simple, humble…You say God will do miracles and they say okay, we believe Him.”
Sometimes I think the right-wingers don’t have anywhere to go up. But then, they start digging. Take a look at this new video, presumably targeted at black people, arguing against gun control. It is posted by despicable black regular ex-welfare queen turned Christian, right-wing wingnut, welfare queen, Star Parker. Tell me whether the creators of this content would have any support from the right at all if the racist lynching depicted was, reasonably, applied to other issues, like the Voting Rights Act or the need for hate crime legislation or used just to remind black people that historical racial violence in America is real. Had Al Sharpton produced something like this, Sean Hannity would have devoted an entire show to demands that he be fired.
ABC News has a post up about Michael Bloomberg’s advocacy group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, and it’s influence on the election to replace my former congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr.
They flooded the district with ads trashing candidates with high approval ratings from the NRA and, in a crowded field, the candidate they supported, Robin Kelly, won easily.
“The NRA has been the only game in town. That’s not going to be the way it is anymore, and races like Halvorson’s…are intended to send that message,” said Mark Glaze, executive director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the advocacy group that Bloomberg co-chairs.
In the past, the NRA has aggressively targeted lawmakers who back new gun laws. After a Democratic Congress passed an assault weapons ban in 1994, Republicans swept back to power in the House. The ban was allowed to expire in 2004. This time around, the NRA is opposing universal background checks.”
Must be seen to be believed. Steven Segal ALONE is worth the price of admission.
Holy crap. This is a long and fascinating article from the New Republic– about the state of the GOP, deep analysis of the much pooh-poohed party switch, the origins of American conservatism,…it’s just a lot. I’m still digesting.
“Who needs Manhattan when we can get the electoral votes of eleven Southern states?” Kevin Phillips, the prophet of “the emerging Republican majority,” asked in 1968, when he was piecing together Richard Nixon’s electoral map. The eleven states, he meant, of the Old Confederacy. “Put those together with the Farm Belt and the Rocky Mountains, and we don’t need the big cities. We don’t even want them. Sure, Hubert [Humphrey] will carry Riverside Drive in November. La-de-dah. What will he do in Oklahoma?”
Forty-five years later, the GOP safely has Oklahoma, and Dixie, too. But Phillips’s Sunbelt strategy was built for a different time, and a different America. Many have noted Mitt Romney’s failure to collect a single vote in 91 precincts in New York City and 59 precincts in Philadelphia. More telling is his defeat in eleven more of the nation’s 15 largest cities. Not just Chicago and Columbus, but also Indianapolis, San Diego, Houston, even Dallas—this last a reason the GOP fears that, within a generation Texas will become a swing state. Remove Texas from the vast, lightly populated Republican expanse west of the Mississippi, and the remaining 13 states yield fewer electoral votes than the West Coast triad of California, Oregon, and Washington. If those trends continue, the GOP could find itself unable to count on a single state that has as many as 20 electoral votes.”
Go there and read the whole thing. I’ve been saying it since November: In it’s current incarnation, the GOP has no path to the White House in 2016.
