Why Democrats are compelled to attack some blacks and not others
Because if Democrats don’t, they’re doomed.
Republicans need not win the black vote. Securing 15 percent of the black electorate severely erodes the stalwart Democratic base. If 20 to 25 percent of blacks vote GOP, it’s curtains for Democrats.
This explains why people like Allen West, Clarence Thomas, Condoleezza Rice, Herman Cain, Janice Rogers Brown, Ken Blackwell, Rod Paige, Artur Davis, and others must be demonized, marginalized, and ostracized by Democrats and (to be redundant), the left and the traditional media.
It also explains why the politics of old-timey black Republicans like Sojourner Truth, Booker T. Washington, and Frederick Douglas are ignored.
Murdock asks blacks to ask, “What have the Democrats done for you lately?” The answer is this: nothing good.
The Republican message should combine opportunity-related themes with historical facts about Democrats’ largely shameful record towards blacks (from stymieing Reconstruction, to launching the Ku Klux Klan, and filibustering federal anti-lynching legislation and the 1964 Civil Rights Act). Democrats’ treatment of blacks remains pitiful (e.g. celebrating the leadership of the late Senator Robert Byrd (D – West Virginia) — a former KKK Exalted Cyclops — until his 2010 death in office, Obama’s defunding of Washington, D.C.’s school-voucher program, and the rise of black unemployment (from 12.1 percent to 14.0 percent), increase in poverty among blacks aged 18 to 64 (from 34.9 percent to 38.6 percent), and fall in black median income (from $22,901 to $21,206) on Obama’s inaugural dates.
A better question might be for blacks to ask Democrats, “What have you done for me ever?”
