Hecklers Mar Romney Visit to Inner-City Charter School in Phila. ("get out" of black neighborhood
The Washington Post ^ | Thursday, May 24, 2012 | Philip Rucker

Posted on 05/27/2012 8:42:37 AM PDT by kristinn

When Mitt Romney came to an inner-city charter school here Thursday to promote his new education agenda, he received something of a history lecture about the persecution of blacks in America and the struggles of African American children to meet the academic achievements of their white counterparts.

Seeking to broaden his appeal heading into the general election, Romney was venturing for his first time in this campaign into an impoverished black neighborhood to hear the concerns of local educators and community leaders. But here in the streets of West Philadelphia, the emotion surrounding his contest with the nation’s first black president was raw, as dozens of neighborhood residents shouted, “Get out, Romney, get out!”

SNIP

Outside, meanwhile, some brick row houses across from the school were boarded up. Police had cordoned off a full city block to protect Romney and his entourage. Residents, some of them organized by Obama’s campaign, stood on their porches and gathered at a sidewalk corner to shout angrily at Romney. Some held signs saying, “We are the 99%.” One man’s placard trumpeted an often-referenced Romney gaffe: “I am not concerned about the very poor.”

Madaline G. Dunn, 78, who said she has lived here for 50 years and volunteers at the school, said she is “personally offended” that Romney would visit her neighborhood.

“It’s not appreciated here,” she said. “It is absolutely denigrating for him to come in here and speak his garbage.”

SNIP

When he visited a classroom where the kids in the elementary school choir were standing, swaying and clapping to the beat of Kirk Franklin’s “I Smile,” Romney appeared charmed but did not dance with them. Rather, he tapped one of his toes slightly and bobbed his head, but did not catch the rhythm..

Imagine the reaction of the MSM if Obama visited a white neighborhood and was heckled to get out?

Very few of them have the gumption required to improve their lot in life, and so, they pass it on, generation to generation. It can be done, if an individual chooses. Tough, but doable.

“i find it hilarious when anyone on the right tries to court the black vote.
do they honestly believe blacks, as a majority, will vote for anyone other then the black guy giving them handouts?”

I believe the best approach is to tell the truth, and to challenge the ‘dogma’ the left has been peddling for decades that has wrapped up the black vote for them.

Black children who come from traditional homes and who go to schools in which they aren’t looked down upon for ‘trying to be white’ do just fine, and don’t need any help ‘competing with white students’. I don’t care what color you are, if you have to grow up in the social settings that many black children do, then you are going to have a higher probability of academic and life problems. It’s much easier to blame ‘slavery’, or ‘white privilege’, or some other b.s. than it is to roll up your sleeves and fix the enormous inner city social issues.

Madaline G. Dunn

WashPost’s Henderson, Rucker Pass Off Political Activist As Mere Elderly Anti-Romney ‘Protester’

By Ken Shepherd | May 25, 2012 | 17:00

In a May 25 front-page story headlined “Romney’s outreach meets hostile reception,” Washington Post staff writers Nia-Malika Henderson and Philip Rucker passed off a political activist by the name of Madaline G. Dunn as simply being a 78-year-old “protester” who has lived in West Philadelphia for 50 years and was “personally offended” by the fact that “Romney would visit her neighborhood.”

“It’s not appreciated here.... It’s absolutely denigrating for him to come in here and speak his garbage,” Henderson and Rucker quoted Dunn. Yet what the Post staff writers left out is that Dunn is no otherwise-apolitical resident who happened to be on hand to react to Romney’s campaign swing. She’s a seasoned political activist, having served as the legislative committee chair for the Philadelphia Congress of the National Congress of Black Women (PCNCBW).

Well put. There are two ways of human existence: To provide for yourself through your earnings or take from others. The DemonRATs have provided a mechanism to take from others. The Entitlement Culture is engaged in the self-perpetuating of that mechanism, like a parasite to a host.

As a side note, the 10 Commandments was a code of values to minimize the growth of the parasitic Entitlement Culture.

Romney has balls. He told those folks the problem and they did not like it one bit. They did not like it when Bill Cosby told them the truth either. Hating whitey ain’t gonna put the black family back together again. The Great Society turned the black family asunder and now rather than hate the liberal mindset that did that they hate on Romney and demand ever more liberalism. It will never change sad to say. Obama could have made an attempt to change it buthe prefers to blame successful Americans rather than his failed ideology.

What a damn mess.

But then, this was where the Black Panthers intimidated White voters.

The GOP did a super job in the South following the Civil War until the Southern Democrats threatened to filibuster the counting of electoral votes after the 1876 presidential election in which the Republican Hayes had more electoral votes than the Democrat Tilden who apparently had more popular votes. Then they agreed not to filibuster if the North agreed to move the Union troops out of the South, whereupon the Southern Democrats took over everything they had held prior to the war and basically Jim Crowed all the black Republicans out of office. The Republican governments of Florida, South Carolina, and Louisiana fell apart and the blacks were pulled back onto the plantation where they've remained electoral captives ever since.

Yes sir! Mr. Romney; take their advice and the money too. Let them forage and grovel for themselves for a real change.
These imbeciles forget that crap can work both ways...
I’m definitely no fan of Romney, but I think he was sincerely offering an opportunity to listen and maybe help bring solutions. Instead, I think he and his handlers got “an education” that they hadn’t planned on. I hope its and education that Mr. Romney doesn’t soon forget.
On the other hand, I wouldn’t walk across the street to listen to a single word spoken by the great odongo. I’d just turn my back and go the other way. The reasons I wouldn’t shut obscene crap at him is: 1. I still respect the office of the POTUS. 2. I really don’t care to become “intimate” with the men in black. He ain’t worth either one.

I agree. This is a great way to expose this freeloader trash for what it is. Romney should visit some black neighborhood at least once a week just to wake white America up.

What really pisses me off is that this reaction was partly organized by the Obama campaign. The punk-ass president and his lackies are extremely dangerous. I expect things to get even uglier.

On another note, Trayvon Martin's parents visited that bastion of Democratic party values, East St Louis, in their heralded cross country End the Gun Violence Tour. They were warmly received that night by two murders and three other gruesome shootings in East St Louis. No one seemed to have been personally offended though.

Exactly. I'm reminded of the key role which the Swift Boat Veteran's Group played in torpedoing John F. Kerry's campaign.

Bush never would talk about the issue nor would he even acknowledge the ads, but I'm sure they played a key role in dragging him over the finish line anyway.

You know when they all start acting like Travon, or like their president they will forever be shackeled to their inner city all neighborhoods of just one color. And as they move into neighborhoods where they add that color, it is only one elementary school education generation before that neighborhood is too just a neighborhood of color, crime and hatred of everything not rotting or boarded up. It is too sad that when a neighborhood is taken over by this demographic that crime is rampant, breakins, and thefts, people too lazy to cut the lawns or trim the bushes/trees but always on the cutting edge of the latest hiphop ganster culture. Color me anyway you want but know I’ve moved three times in my life as one of the last nonpersons of color in a neighborhood and it is always the same racial hatred brought by this color people.

That’s really what we want in a president. Obama is so “cool” isn’t he? He does have a little rhythm but NOT a singer. So, what about his accomplishments? Solyndra, GM, solar energy, 5 trillion in new debt, endless golf, endless campaign speeches at taxpayer expense, veto of the Keystone pipeline that would have added 100k jobs, unelected czars who no one knows what they do but they get paid very well “socializing” America. So Romney, stay out of Philly. It will be the next Detroit. You don’t want any associations with failure like that. They are close minded and have made up their minds that they want that ignorant black man who has faked his BC and SS# and no one knows his past because its all been scrubbed so we can’t find out. I would imagine he was actually born in Kenya since he touted that in some college paper. I think his college records were scrubbed because he got his education as a foreign student and now he is a natural born citizen! Does anybody care that we have been scammed and it happens to be the president of the US? IMPEACH HIM NOW.

Don't expect the media to portray ignorant and stupid black people in a negative light. In my humble opinion trying to attract blacks from the inner city is like trying to get a fish to stop swimming. Here is the best know case of Stockholm Syndrome known to man; it's even more insipid and dangerous then the original version. The woman that lived in Philly for 50 years and votes for the same thing election after election and the state of her community never gets better. Philly, Newark, Cleveland, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City and saddest of all Washington DC. All these cities have a large black population that is poor and un/under educated with a ridiculously high unemployment rate and fatherless families and yet they will vote for the democrats and their racists policies then turn around an accuse the republicans of racism for not “caring” about their plight. It is ludicrous to waste time and resources on people that don't give a damn about themselves. All they want to do is “get over on the system.” The question that needs to be asked in the black community is that why has not your president done anything to make your situation better? All one has to do is go to the South and West sides of Chicago and see FAILED DEMOCRATIC polices in plain view of everyone. These places are ground zero of Obamaville. They practically worship the man but you can see they are in a worse state then they were in 4 years ago. Any media outlet besides a few report on the disgraceful unemployment rate amongst black teenagers. You would think a black president would throw his homeboys a bone wouldn't you.

Now the republicans are not without shame as well. If I were Mr Romney I would go into places like Philly armed with Allen West, Tim Scott C.L. Bryant and David Webb to make a case for how being educated and practicing self denial would get you a lot further in life then being a brood mare or poverty pimp. You see I think the message of conservatism works but it has to be explained and the true unwhitewashed version of how democrats have continue to treat black people like slaves has not changed since slavery. No other group in America votes and agrees on 97% of anything.

Or when blacks who are Republicans are called Uncle Toms and traitors to their own race. Funny that those belonging to the party of the slave holders are looking at the ones who left it as not fulfilling their true racial identity.
