The Democratic Party’s White Voter Problem

by Daniel Greenfield on Monday, September 22nd, 2014

This is article 373 of 374 in the topic Elections

Hardly a week goes by without some Democratic Party hack putting finger to iPad and swiping out a screed about the Republican Party’s problem with women or minorities.

This time it was Debbie Wasserman Schultz with “The GOP’s Woman Problem”. Schultz claims that the Republican Party was “rejected again by a bloc of voters that make up more than half of the electorate”. That claim is as real as Schultz’s hair color. The only bloc that rejected Romney was the same bloc that rejected Hillary; the bloc of minority voters who came out in force for Obama.

And unless Hillary Clinton also had a “woman problem” they didn’t do it over gender.

For example in the South Carolina Democratic primary, Obama beat Hillary among women by 54 to 30. That’s a much bigger split than the one between Obama and Romney among women. While Hillary Clinton beat Obama among white voters, Obama won 78 percent of the black vote.

There was no gender gap. There was a racial gap.

Throughout her campaign, Hillary Clinton consistently won the votes of white women in large numbers and lost the votes of women who said that their gender was not important. Obama won the female vote by his largest margins in southern states because he wasn’t really winning by gender, he was benefiting from a large turnout of black women.

Obama won the female vote in Georgia by 32%, but Hillary won 62% of the white female vote. Obama however had won 87% of the black female vote. In Ohio, Hillary and Obama had nearly the same split, but Hillary won the female vote in Ohio by 16% because the racial makeup of the voters was different.

In 2012, Romney won 53% of the white female vote and 3% of the black female vote in Ohio. He didn’t lose women. He lost the same “bloc of voters” that had rejected Hillary, not over gender, but over race.

The Republican Party doesn’t have a “woman problem”. Romney won the votes of white women in every age group; including young women. And Obama lost white women as he did all white voters.

He lost white voters by 59% to 39%. He lost white voters of every age and gender. His loss among white voters was completely unprecedented for any winner of a presidential election.

The GOP doesn’t have a “woman problem”, but the Democrats have a “white woman problem” and a “white man problem”.

The articles about the GOP’s problem with minority voters blame the Republican Party for alienating minority voters. But shouldn’t the Democratic Party be held accountable for alienating white voters?

This is about more than just numbers.

The Democratic Party’s poor performance among white voters is leading it to engage in some very questionable behavior. If Obama and his party weren’t polling so poorly among white voters, it’s doubtful that the Democrats would be nakedly exploiting racial tensions in Ferguson in the hopes of turning out black voters for the midterm elections.

This isn’t a conspiracy theory. It’s a New York Times article which describes how the Democrats are hoping to retain control of the Senate “as they urge black voters to channel their anger by voting Democratic in the midterm elections”.

Forget slavery: even too Uncle Tom for conservatives?

by Lloyd Marcus on Friday, September 12th, 2014

This is article 164 of 164 in the topic Racism

Even a few white conservative radio hosts became uncomfortable and pushed back against my saying that slavery happened a ga-zillion years ago and it is time for black America to get over it. Apparently, they considered such a statement coming from a black person too Uncle Tom-ish for even them. Their retort is “Surely, you must admit that being African American in America is challenging.” When my reply is, “No, it is not.” their reply is, “Thanks for coming on the show Lloyd. And we’ll be right back.”

I am in my sixties and America has come a very long way since my youth. Mary, my beautiful awesome white wife of 38 years and I began dating over 40 years ago. We caught heck from both sides; severe push back from our families. We were chased in our car by a car load of angry white boys. On another occasion, we were waiting at a traffic light when a white man got out of his car, cursed at us and spat on our car. A white landlord revealed to me that her black maid advised her not to rent to us because any black man who dates a white woman is no good.

Then, there was the time at a family restaurant, a white man approached our table and smashed a beer bottle on my forehead and fled the restaurant. I was not severely injured and he was later apprehended. Back in those days, being black in America had its challenges.

Today, in terms of living a happy and fulfilled life; achieving one’s American dream, racism is not serious enough to block anyone. As a matter of fact, America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet. I am extremely grateful to God for blessing me to be born an American. Cut the victim crap and go for your dreams.

Is racism alive and well in America? Absolutely, on both sides. People have a variety of prejudices. Is racial prejudice in America prevalent enough to stop anyone from achieving? No.

The Bible says “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” Wow, what a powerful truth, able to empower or destroy you. If you see yourself as a victim, you are. But, if you see yourself powerful and free, you are.

Can someone please explain to me how viewing themselves as victims of slavery empowers black Americans today? It does not, quite the opposite. Liberals love to lay the serious economic and moral problems devastating the black community at the feet of white America and America’s sin of slavery. This mindset weakens black America because it places their salvation in the hands of someone other than themselves; contingent on white behavior and intervention. Are we slaves on a national plantation waiting for our masters to better manage our lives?

Throughout American history there are countless inspiring tales of blacks using their will to succeed. Born in 1885, A’Lelia Walker was a black businesswoman. She was the first self made female millionaire in the United States and also one of the first black millionaires. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A%27Lelia_Walker

Imagine Miss Walker’s life had she obsessed about slavery and reparations.

My black college buddy Joe Ford was a wonderful role model; focus and determination. Joe had every excuse to fail.

Obama’s "Iraqization" of America

by Daniel Greenfield on Tuesday, September 9th, 2014

This is article 1003 of 1007 in the topic Obama

When it comes to Iraq, Obama lectures the Sunnis and the Shiites on getting along and forming a government that won’t exist for the sole benefit of a single group at the expense of the other.

But in America he runs exactly that sort of government.

Only 27% of whites see Obama as a “Uniter” compared to 78% of blacks. Those are Sunni-Shiite numbers. And numbers like that have consequences.

Iraqis are not stupid. They look at the news and they see Ferguson and Al Sharpton screaming at
angry mobs and know that Obama is not practicing what he preaches to them. Obama may have forced out Maliki, but his own tribal politics are hard to distinguish from those of Maliki or ISIS.

Obama rules not by inspiring people, but, like Maliki and ISIS, he divides and conquers, setting people against each other. Obama’s America is as spitefully tribal as Maliki’s Iraq. Its bosses, like Eric Holder, hold a divisive worldview that excludes much of the country.

Al Sharpton, Obama’s close political ally, and the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, his mentor, are familiar types in Iraq. You can find a thousand Jeremiah Wrights on any given Friday screaming about killing the Shiites or the Sunnis. You can find a million Al Sharptons community organizing local hatreds until they explode. One of the most prominent Sharptons of Iraq is a Shiite named Muqtada al-Sadr.

The Sharptons and Wrights of Iraq have guns because the machinery of law and order there has collapsed even more comprehensively than it has in Detroit. In a country divided by ethnic and sectarian politics, a multicultural military and police are incapable of enforcing the law and uninterested in standing up to violence from their own people.

Those are the ugly tribal politics that Obama has brought to America. Instead of repairing the economy, he focused on wealth redistribution. Instead of bringing Americans together as one nation, he calculatedly tore them apart around manufactured crises of race, gender, class and religion. He pitted blacks against whites, liberal Protestants against Catholics, the poor against the middle class and the cities against the suburbs.

Not only did Obama pit his own voting bases against the country, but he even sought to make his own voters fight each other.

Instead of reaching out to white Americans after they thoroughly rejected him in the 2012 election, he instead decided that divisive and racist politics were the key to staying in power.

In 2012, Obama decisively lost white voters 59% to 39%. He lost white voters of every sex and age. He lost white voters in almost every state. In the three states where he won them, it was only by the narrowest of margins.

And he only tied Romney among white voters in New York with a 49% to 49% split.

Obama lost white men. He lost white women. He lost young white voters. He lost middle aged and old white voters. He lost white Protestants and he lost white Catholics.

Yes, I blame white liberals

by Lloyd Marcus on Saturday, September 6th, 2014

This is article 163 of 164 in the topic Racism

A white teacher said he routinely overhears vulgar and racist comments from students at an all black high school. I blame the black youth’s negative mindset on blacks in the civil rights exploitation business and white liberals with their stomach-turning bigotry of lowered expectations.

We see snooty arrogant superior intellectual sounding white liberal pundits and hosts all over TV touting their absurd narrative that blacks have a right to be angry in racist America and must be coddled. These liberal celebs followed certain steps and behaviors to achieve success. And yet, they claim expecting blacks to follow the same road map to success is racist. Blacks should be repulsed by this liberal narrative which implies that we are inferior. I want to scream, “How dare you lower the bar for me! I “be” as smart as any white person!” Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

I have witnessed the same racist mindset in a white liberal couple who are longtime friends. They have had financial highs and lows in their efforts to run various businesses. They work hard and will take any job to pay their bills. Applying for government welfare is not on their radar. They employed horrible black employees, always making excuses for them; giving them a pass because they were black. I was amazed that they could not see the racism at the root of their low expectations, disguised as compassion.

At every turn liberals send the message that blacks are lesser Americans. Liberals say it is hateful for conservatives/Republicans to expect blacks to speak English correctly, show an ID to vote, refrain from murdering each other and stop dropping out of school. White liberals say asking blacks to refrain from having babies out of wedlock is culturally insensitive and imposes morality on them. Libs ignore the truth that fatherless households contribute to gang membership, black on black violence and poverty. Do you see the pattern? White liberals insinuate that urban blacks are poor uncouth savages. Therefore, a 6’4″ 290 pound black thug should be given a pass for robbing a convenience store, assaulting the clerk and attacking a police officer while on his way to grandma’s house.

By the way, 54% of black kids grow up in single parent households which was reported as high as 72% in 2010. http://bit.ly/1qxagwI

Years ago, I spoke to a class of black students at a Baltimore middle school. Diction was so lazy and poor, I had to ask several students numerous times to pronounce their names before I understood what they were saying. Why was such lazy speech tolerated?

My late Aunt Nee was a pastor and a brilliant black women with only a fourth grade formal education; an avid reader and studier. Aunt Nee did not tolerate lazy or inarticulate speaking from me and my siblings. Etched on my brain is her sending me to the corner store at 7 or 8 years old. “Ask the man for Uneeda Biscuits.” She pronounced each syllable and spelled it. She respected my intelligence.

Politically, white liberals pander to blacks to recruit Democrat voters which furthers their socialist/progressives agenda. Their sales pitch is every problem in the black community is caused by racist white America. Therefore, blacks can not achieve without big government intervention; lowered standards and entitlements to make things fair.

Eric Holder and racial cases: Abusing the power of the federal government in the Trayvon Martin and Ferguson, MO cases?

by John Lott on Friday, September 5th, 2014

This is article 455 of 461 in the topic Government Corruption
US Attorney General Eric Holder is still trying to go after George Zimmerman.  Dragging out the legal case like this over years imposes massive costs on George Zimmerman — not only does it impose legal costs on him, but it makes it very difficult for him to plan his life.  Holder’s actions here are a real criminal penalty that are being imposed on Zimmerman.  Either charge Zimmerman with something or eventually let go of the case.  From Grabien.com:

REPORTER: “There is a big announcement that you made years ago about the investigation in Trayvon Martin shooting. Have you ever finished that civil rights investigation? Are you ever going to finish that?

HOLDER: “That investigation is ongoing. In fact, in anticipation of that question, I was asked — I asked, give me, you know, the best we can where do we stand. That matter is ongoing. There are active steps we are still in the process of taking. There are witnesses who we want to speak to as a result of some recent development. So that matter is still underway.”

Here is another clip from the same press conference about how the federal government can use its massive resources to make life difficult for a small town, when it appears that Holder made up his mind before any evidence was actually collected.  From Grabien.com:

REPORTER: “Mr. Attorney General, can you give us a little more texture on why you decided to launch this investigation? Your own conversations there — you talk about review of documented allegations. Give us the universe of what went into this.

MORAN: “We looked at a number of things in our initial and preliminary assessment and whether or not to open the investigation. It included not only discussions that the Attorney General had with residents of Ferguson two weeks ago but also, other meetings that the Civil rights division and Community relations service and other Justice Department officials have had with residents. We’ve looked of course at public records and other pieces of information that are available to make an assessment that this was indeed an appropriate opening for a pattern and practice investigation. Moreover, the civil rights division met with city leaders in Ferguson yesterday and they expressed a strong willingness to assist us, and in fact were extremely open to this investigation. So we will have cooperation from our local residents.”

REPORTER: “What public records are we talking about?”

MORAN: “There are a number of pieces of information that we looked at which would have included demographics and public records related to cases that may have been filed by private litigants. There are a number of different things we looked at.”

REPORTER: “Mr. Attorney General, what about your visit struck you to the point where you felt comfortable able to move forward with the investigation?

Brown’s funeral, the exploiters and America’s police

by Lloyd Marcus on Friday, August 29th, 2014

This is article 161 of 164 in the topic Racism

Though skillfully orchestrated to transform convenience store robber Michael Brown into a heroic martyr for civil rights, his funeral was hijacked into becoming a platform for the evil and obscene slander of police and America, perpetrated by the usual deplorable suspects; Al Sharpton, Democrats and the MSM.

Candidly, as a black man, it is easy to feel a little like odd man out; consistently finding myself taking the opposite side than a majority of black Americans. In 2008, over 96% of blacks voted for Obama. I did not.

While I am familiar with black Republican author, orator, and advisor to U.S. Presidents, Booker T. Washington, I only recently came across this amazing quote from him which nailed the Rev. Sharptons and Rev Jacksons of America back in 1911.

“There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs – partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

Wow! Booker T. Washington had these low life scoundrels figured out way back then. He perfectly described the shameful despicable exploitation of the goodness of the American people on display at the Michael Brown funeral.

Folks, in a nutshell, the Left’s selective outrage over Brown’s death is about getting paid and ginning up rage-based black voter turnout for Democrats in November. Apparently, the Democrats and MSM only consider a young black male’s life of value when it is taken by a white person. Epidemic black on black shootings only get a yawn from Dems and the MSM while sipping their mocha lattes.

Insidiously, irresponsibly and strategically, President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder even threw in their anecdotal two cents, sharing their uncomfortable experiences with police as black males. http://exm.nr/1pZJDl2

Allow me to offer a few of my numerous anecdotal encounters with police.

In the 1970s, my cousin who lived in a low income neighborhood in Baltimore had a nervous breakdown. He held his two toddler sons hostage in his basement, threatening to kill himself and his kids. Shortly after I arrived on the scene, two white cops responded to my cousin’s wife’s emergency phone call.

In seconds, the young slim fit cop dashed up the ten front steps into the house. He then waited for his partner’s instructions. His much older obese partner moved a bit slower. After negotiating the steps, he waddled to the open basement door.

Upon catching his breath, with wisdom, experience and compassion, the seasoned police officer talked my cousin out of the basement. “C’mon son, I know you’re hurtin’. But, you don’t wanna do this.”

Fearful for my cousin’s life, I was extremely relieved. The incident totally contradicted what my militant black college associates said to expect from white “pigs”; shoot the n***** and ask questions later.

On another occasion, my wife and I were surrounded by police cars at a traffic light and ordered out of our car. A bank robbery had just taken place.

Trayvon Martin, Meet Michael Brown

by Burt Prelutsky on Friday, August 29th, 2014

This is article 162 of 164 in the topic Racism

All it took for Al Sharpton and the other race hustlers to rush off to Ferguson, Missouri, was for a 6’4,” 250-pound gangbanger named Michael Brown to be shot while struggling for a cop’s gun. That’s also all it took for Eric Holder to decide to send the F.B.I. in to investigate what he decided within mere hours was a federal crime.

My question is why none of these actions are ever taken when, as is usually the case, it’s some black thug who’s killing other black people in Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia and L.A.

Why Do Black Leaders Have Preconceived Notions of Guilt When the Races Exchange Roles?

by Jerry McConnell on Monday, August 25th, 2014

This is article 453 of 461 in the topic Government Corruption

If at first you don’t succeed, try – oops; not that one, but it’s very close.  The one I’m thinking of when I heard that the cavalry, in the form of two black leaders, not Black Panthers, although that group are certainly present at this roasting; but these warriors heard that a young black boy got shot by a white policeman during the riots in Ferguson, suburb of St. Louis, Missouri, and they’re here to make sure some white cop gets not necessarily fair but equal treatment.

But wait; fair and equal? How can that be?  The cop was not looting and part of the general mayhem prevalent in the scene of the action; only the black boy.  And yes, the young black boy was seen and videotaped with a box of expensive cigars in his hand when leaving a store that had been looted.

That’s ridiculous, you say; boys are too small to smoke cigars.  Not this boy, he could be a backup for an offensive lineman on an NFL football team well over 275 pounds and standing six feet four inches tall, literally, a giant of a man, er, boy.  But they got him on tape menacing a normal-sized store owner who was trying to recover the stolen property from the looters who were leaving the store.  BIG BOY was last out and made sure the owner didn’t follow them.

Oh, now I remember; it was a quote by Albert Einstein’s definition of ‘Insanity’ which is:  “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”  In this case, there had already been two autopsies performed on the huge man, er, boy, in which the rioters, including the Black Panthers and the two black cavalry riders, namely Obama and Holder, were disappointed in the conclusions which did not OFFICIALLY condemn the police officer.

So what does a black U.S. President, a black U.S. Attorney General and a black population of a black community do, then?  Why, of course – order the execution of the white police officer, excuse me, the third enactment of the procedures which are called autopsies.  Surely, as some pundits are saying, the third time is the charm; it can’t fail.  Their methods got Obama reelected even when some towns had more votes for him even when they had LESS actual residents in the town.

So, you see, SOME things can just BE DONE.  Remember the definition of insanity up above? Wink, wink.  Hell, they almost got everyone to believe that the bullet exit wounds on the victim’s back were bullet ENTRY wounds, so it’s possible.  Isn’t it?  Wink, wink.  And the additional oversight of two such luminaries as the POTUS and AGUS should be enough to close that case.

In a “libertyunyielding” staff report of August 18, 2014, it was stated that “Holder orders third autopsy of Michael Brown” by saying, “Maybe this time around Attorney General Eric Holder will find evidence that confirms his preconception of how Michael Brown (aka one of “his people”) met his end on the streets of a St.

Obama and Holder take over from Jackson and Sharpton

by Sher Zieve on Friday, August 22nd, 2014

This is article 5 of 5 in the topic Civil Unrest

The Obama-Holder team has now taken over the investigation of the Ferguson, MO shooting. At the same time, that team has, apparently, effectively usurped both the city’s authority and the titles of “biggest race hustlers and race-baiters in America” from the team of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Note: I assume the Jackson-Sharpton team is now demanding royalties from both Holder and Obama.

Determined to find (or likely fabricate?) “evidence” in order to indict and prosecute the badly-beaten-by-Michael-Brown Police Officer Darren Wilson, over 50 federal “investigators” who report to Obama and Holder are now on the ground in Ferguson, Missouri. Tragically, the city of Ferguson has already been turned into a Leftist Mecca, with hordes of out-of0-city agitators ensuring the burning and looting continue in Ferguson and spread to other nearby cities including Dellwood and Rehobeth. After all, free stuff is free stuff and if you can get away with stealing it…why not? Why work for anything when all you have to do is riot and pillage from others?

What we know, thus far, from eye witnesses and cell-phone videos is that Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson in a strong-arm robbery were walking down the middle of a street in Ferguson. On patrol Police Officer Darren Wilson told Brown to get out of the street. Brown, apparently, briefly complied and then began walking in the street again. The officer is said to have pulled up beside him and told Brown again to get our=t of the street. The officer stopped his patrol car, Brown reached into the car and tried to get Wilson’s gun and then began beating him in the head. Brown was approximately 300 ponds and well over 6 feet tall. Brown began running away from Wilson’s car as Wilson exited, pulled his gun and shouted at Brown to stop. Eventually, he did and – from eyewitness reports – then began charging at the officer. Wilson told him again to stop, Brown ignored him and the officer began firing. Eventually, Brown was brought down and died at the scene. Note: Many of the cell phone video accounts of Michael Brown’s behavior have now been scrubbed from the Internet by YouTube.

Officer Darren Wilson’s confirmed severe injuries, which include but are not limited to broken bones in his skull and a fractured eye socket (aka “orbital blow out”). Brown has been called a “gentle giant” by a fawning and less-than-honest US media. He was a giant but, he was not even close to gentle. From the recent videos (below), he was a thug. Note that in one of the videos below, an eyewitness is heard saying that Brown doubled back and was running towards (charging) the officer before he was shot and killed.

For those of you who regularly read my columns, you know that I have not been a fan of the militarization of local police. However, in the case of riots, it seems the only logical choice…short of letting the rioters bur and pillage. Unfortunately, this is what officer-in-charge Ron Johnson allowed to happen and Ferguson stores have been completely destroyed. The police – as do we all – do have an inherent right to protect their own lives.

Ferguson: Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett secretly briefs civil rights leaders

by Jim Kouri on Friday, August 22nd, 2014

This is article 45 of 45 in the topic Equal Rights/Civil Rights

After President Barack Obama warned Americans not to “rush to judgement” regarding the case of a white cop, Darren Wilson, shooting an unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, Obama’s top adviser Valerie Jarrett on Monday secretly held a conference via telephone and Skype with a number civil rights leaders to brief them on the prosecution of the Ferguson, Missouri, police officer, according to Frederick Pearlman, a police official in Washington, D.C.

While saying his administration is being unbiased about the case, Obama’s staff — especially Jarrett, who is called by many “Obama’s puppetmaster” — is working the phones to assure the Democratic Party’s important “civil rights community” voting block, said Pearlman, a former president of a top police organization.

Attorney General Eric Holder and White House adviser Valerie Jarrett assured the leaders, who are still not identified, that the Brown case is a top priority. Holder allegedly took part in the phone conference, as well.

Holder and the people on the call discussed the FBI agents locating more than 200 people to interview about the case. Holder reportedly said that the FBI agents are attempting to find out is there is sufficient evidence to show that the Ferguson police officer used excessive force and violated the 6’4″ tall, 290 lbs. Brown’s civil rights that can be used in a federal criminal prosecution.

She also said that during his televised briefings,Obama wanted to reiterate to law enforcement officials how they have constitutional limits even when facing the rioters and to let them know that Holder will not rest until the case is resolved.

Meanwhile on Tuesday, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon was accused of taking sides in the Ferguson tragedy by making statements about “justice” for the Brown family.

Gov. Nixon said that a “vigorous prosecution must now be pursued” even before there was an indictment by the grand jury. He also said that the prosecution has an “obligation to achieve justice in the shooting death of Michael Brown… and it must be carried out thoroughly, promptly, and correctly; and I call upon them to meet those expectations.”

“Finally, once we have achieved peace in Ferguson and justice for the family of Michael Brown, we must remain committed to rebuilding the trust that has been lost, mending what has been broken, and healing the wounds we have endured,” said the Democrat.

“I was floored by his statements. Justice is justice. You don’t prosecute someone just to give someone else justice, you do it to give justice for all. This governor, like Eric Holder, is a disgrace,” said former police detective Iris Aquino.
