Skip to comments.Black Voters on Democrat Racist Politicians: Nothing to See Here!

Black voters voting behavior is a perplexing dynamic. Their unwavering support of Democrat politicians and the liberal agenda that creates an illusion of caring about their plight of living life at the bottom is stunning. But this didnt happen overnight. Its been decades of head in the sand mentality that has cost black voters dearly.
Recall former Democrat Senator Robert Byrd, who rose to a leadership position as a member of the Ku Klux Klan. Byrd filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights Act. That reality didnt stop former President Obama, who had said upon learning of Byrds passing that the Senate has lost a venerable institution and America has lost a voice of principle and reason. Really? Remember Georgia Representative John Lewis, who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King for civil rights? Well, he said in the aftermath of Byrds passing that he will miss Senator Byrd; he was a true statesman. Seriously? Recall that former Republican Senator Trent Lott didnt get that pass when he spoke at a birthday party for former segregationist Senator Strom Thurman. Lott said in a lighthearted and obvious clumsy way that the country would not have the problems it has had, if Thurman had been elected President. Democrats immediately rebuked Lotts statement, and they were unforgiving. John Lewis responded he was shocked and chagrined, while Jesse Jackson called for Lott to resign, and Vice President Al Gore called for the Senate to censure Lott. Yet, recall former segregationist Alabama Governor George Wallace, who was accepted with open arms by the Democrat Party even though he stood in front of the University of Alabama saying, Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever. Pathetic.
Some things never change. The current frontrunner of the Democrat nomination for president, Joe Biden has escaped scrutiny from previously being a leading opponent of school integration through busing in the 1970s and 80s. Recently on the campaign trail, he invoked the names of two segregationist colleagues in the Senate that he worked well with in describing the civility in the Senate. Biden called them friends. The debate was over busing as a tool. Biden was against busing to end de facto segregation. He called busing, a rejection of the whole movement of black pride. He called busing, an asinine concept as a tool to integrate schools. He proposed an amendment prohibiting federal funds from being used to integrate schools. At the time, the NAACP called Bidens move an anti-black amendment. Correct. The Senates only black member called Bidens move, the most significant symbolic defeat for civil rights. Biden, in return, called integrationists the real racists. He said it was racist to believe that in order for your child with curly black hair, brown eyes and dark skin to be able to learn anything is to sit next to my blond-haired, blue-eyed son. He continued, who the hell do we think we are, that the only way a black man or woman can learn is if they rub shoulders with my white child, even though a 1999 Gallup poll showed that Americans believed that busing had served a definite historical purpose in improving the education of black students. Yes, Joe Bidenthe Democrats prized ponysaid these things. When pressed on his anti-busing crusade, Biden resorted to a John Kerry flip-flop on voting for the Iraqi war when Kerry said, I voted for it before I voted against it. Biden on busing said, I did not oppose busing, I opposed busing ordered by the Department of Education. What?
Bidens record on crime in the 1990s should make black voters recoil. He was a key sponsor and crafter of the 1994 Clinton Crime Bill that he called the Biden Crime Bill. The bill ushered in mandatory minimum sentences for non-violent drug offenders, harsher sentences for crack cocaine convictions, and extensive use of the death penalty. The bill abolished federal parole, encouraged truth in sentencing laws leading to longer sentences and federal funding for prison building expansion at the state level. Joe Biden was the leader of law and order liberals. Biden called people who commit crimes sociopathic predators who are beyond rehabilitation. He advocated for more police to catch violent thugs, more prosecutors to convict them and more judges to sentence them and more prisons to put them away for a long time.
The black community has complained that these policies disproportionally affect the black community. They call these policies racist. They call the criminal justice system racist because many of the laws passed as a result of Joe Bidens work in the Senate. But they dont call out Biden for this?
So why do many black voters whistle past the graveyard when it comes to supporting Joe Biden? They resurrected his campaign that was on life support before the primary in South Carolina and Super Tuesday. South Carolinas black Congressman James Clyburn endorsed Biden. He rationalized it by saying, I know Joe, we know Joe, but most importantly, Joe knows us. The only thing missing was a wink-wink. Even though Mike Bloomberg aggressively supported stop and frisk crime reduction strategy as mayor of New York that blacks generally abhor as racist, he received the endorsement of Houstons black mayor Sylvester Turner.
New York Mayor Bill De Blaiso attributes Bidens black support and votes to ignorance by black voters in not examining Bidens record. Imagine Trump, a GOP strategist, campaign official or other Republican calling black voters ignorant. De Blasio is correct, however. The Democrat Party and liberal media have separated blacks from Democrats racist history. Those blacks that know better have allowed their politics to lie to them about the Democrats sordid past on slavery and racism as they continue to vote Democrat no matter how racist they are on opposing policies such as school choice and gun ownership.
The Blexit movement endeavoring to wake Democrat black voters up has its work cut out for them. Time to re-introduce black voters to their history.
they’re gonna put y’all back in chains... and i halped.
To this day, dim-0s claim that we cannot have voter ID cause blacks are SO INFERIOR as to be unable to obtain a valid ID.
But they are still going to vote for the Dem in the generals.
Black voter turnout for the Dem primaries wasn’t low. low turnout would have indicated some kind of change but they don’t change and they never will
Trent Lott is still working as a lobbyist in Washington, DC.
The promise of free shit will always lure them in.
