Default Republican Racist!!!!

http://www.examiner.com/article/glo-...-campaign-sign

Quote:
Glo Smith, an African-American Republican challenger for the House of Representatives, has been subjected to the unfortunate trend in which there are racist attacks on African-American Republicans. The Florida Republican candidate has had her campaign sign vandalized with white paint over her face. The incident occurred last week in her district. Her district is overwhelmingly comprised of Democratic voters via details of the area’s voter registration. According to the National Review publication on Monday, this vandalistic attack on Smith is the latest in a long line of incredibly racist attacks on African-American Republicans.

Beyond the whitewashed campaign sign, Smith – whose full name is Gloreatha Scurry-Smith - has said that many of her campaign signs have also been stolen. Last Tuesday, she was told of the racist defacement of her campaign sign. The costly signage to promote her candidacy for congress stands eight feet tall and four feet wide. The sign that was destroyed was placed in a very visible location for maximum exposure. The sign was on private property along Interstate 10 in Jacksonville, Florida. In the vandalism, it is apparent that the criminal vandalized the campaign property by spray painting white over Smith’s face. The work of the vandal was carefully calculated as the white only covered Smith’s skin in the photograph.

As for Smith’s political efforts, she is challenging Democratic Congresswoman Corinne Brown in Florida’s 5th Congressional District. Brown is a long-serving congressional figure who benefitted from the redistricting of her district in 2010. Brown reportedly defeated her 2012 Republican challenger handily by garnering more than 70 percent of the votes cast in her district. She has been in office for 21 years.

Besides Smith, another Republican is campaigning to replace Brown in the House. Thuy Lowe, a Republican, will face Smith in a primary contest in August. According to Smith’s camp, she is leading Lowe in the polls at this time. As of April, she has reportedly had eight times the campaign funding that her opponent in the primary has accumulated.

Both Smith and Lowe have spoken out against the whitewashing vandalism of Smith’s signs. Smith has said that it is expected that signs will be tampered with or stolen from time to time, but something like this is not expected. Lowe said he was shocked by the racist vandalism. He blatantly calls the incident bigoted, stating that she is being charged with having a white point of view though she’s black.

As stated, this is just the latest incident in a long line of attacks on black politicians who are Republicans. Three months ago, the Daily Caller did a piece on Ebony magazine editor. The issue there was that the magazine’s editor was accused of attacking black Republicans. Jamilah Lemieux, a senior editor at Ebony attacked the Republican National Committee's Deputy Press Secretary Raffi Williams as a white dude who was telling her how to do this black thing - via a debate on Twitter. Of note, Williams is the son of Fox News’ African-American commentator Juan Williams, and therefore Raffi Williams is not white at all.

When Lemieux learned Williams wasn’t white, she apologized for the error but continued to bash him by saying that she cares nothing about what he had to say. After learning that Williams is black and not a 'white dude,' she made reference to him and his conservatism being like roaches. Even though Lemieux was wrong to assume race in her debate with Williams, she simply told Twitter commentors - who lunged at her regarding her racism - to just “go away.”

These incidents are coming common in the political arena in 2014 where blacks are not being allowed to be Republicans or conservatives without facing bigotry. Dr. Ben Carson, Allen West, Condleezza Rice, Michael Steele, Clarence Thomas, Alveda King, Tim Scott, and Herman Cain are among contemporary black conservatives who proudly call themselves Republicans. The number of outspoken black conservatives has grown greatly in recent years.


Oh but wait. Its phukcing Dem/Libs. Ain't that something.

The liberals and their hypocrisy on race never fails or ends. It's ok to do these things to minorities as long as they aren't democrats. Not to mention these stories would be getting a ton more press by the liberal media if they happened top democrats, but as we know, pick and choose the stories that go with the narrative they indoctrinate the bozos with: only republicans are racists. These stories don't fit, so pretend they didn't happen.

Based upon your simpleton thinking:

ALL Conservatives are racists, they NEVER have anything good to say about
minorities, they ALWAYS carry racist Obama signs, they are ALL hypocrites
and NEVER want the rich to be taxed and want EVERY poor person off ANY
kind of assistance, ALL government is evil and EVERYONE should carry a
gun and they ALWAYS deny EVERYTHING and ANYTHING that doesn't fit THEIR bozo agenda.

The point is easy. Democrats in this area are racists but activists like Al Sharpton won't get pissed because it's a republican.

Republicans don't get all upset and angry. That is for the liberals. Now the Tea Party, they are emotional just like democrats.

You have Democrats on the left, Tea Party on the right, and republicans like myself firmly in the middle where sanity lives.

Democrats are a lot more exclusionary. Unless you think exactly like them you can't belong.

Liberals are ok with racists remarks and actions against those that are republican. That's a fact. They don't care since they don't consider them a "real" minority if not a democrat.

And Lincoln, the father of the Republican Party put labor above the capitalist. And Teddy Roosevelt, the heart of early Republicanism, launched the American progressive movement.

Another thread from the clown who only believes in the fabricated history of ideologues.

All those Dixiecrats who you so righteously attack are now the core of the Republican Party, dumbass. The Republicans couldn't win a national election without them. Ever hear of Nixon's "Southern Strategy?" Ever hear of Reagan, under the guidance of Southerner Lee Atwater, continuing that strategy to court the racist South in order to win election?

Your local library will have numerous books on the subject. You can actually go there and check them out for free. Try it.

I recommend this one to get you started:



(the blurb)
Campaigning for president in 1980, Ronald Reagan told stories of Cadillac-driving "welfare queens" and "strapping young bucks" buying T-bone steaks with food stamps. In trumpeting these tales of welfare run amok, Reagan never needed to mention race, because he was blowing a dog whistle: sending a message about racial minorities inaudible on one level, but clearly heard on another. In doing so, he tapped into a long political tradition that started with George Wallace and Richard Nixon, and is more relevant than ever in the age of the Tea Party and the first black president.

Hell, you might learn something new. You're one of those who, every time he hears the Right Wing dog whistle blow, starts barking.

And Wilson, the biggest Progressive of all, was a virulent racist. I'm pretty sure Al Sharpton is a bona fide racist, too.

So by your logic, the core of the Democrats must be racists.

But seriously, why does Reagan press all of your buttons? I recognize that he's vulnerable to criticism in any numbers of areas: Iran-Contra, budget deficits, Lebanon, illegal alien amnesty, etc. But the notion that he was a racist or that he followed a racist course or the like is just Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. Nixon and LBJ were the last two closet racist Presidents. Reagan? No.

Reagan launched his presidential campaign in Philadelphia, Mississippi and gave a speech on "states rights." You know what happened in Philadelphia, Mississippi? That's where they found the bodies of those three civil rights workers in 1964. Gimme a break.

And you misread my post regarding the Dixiecrats. They're no longer in the Democratic Party. They are the reddest of Republicans now.

I didn't misread - I was just playing. On a serious note, though, there's plenty of racism in both parties, ranging from the outright type to the patronizing type. Ever spend time in Boston?

Regarding Reagan, I've read a lot about the man from many sources and never found anything to suggest he was a racist or that he tolerated racism. He talked about states rights all of the time but not in a way that was courting Jim Crow. It was part of his campaign strategy of push-back against Big Government and demonization of all that is Washington, D.C. -- something that has many more facets than just Civil Rights.

If he had a history of racism or if there were racist anecdotes (like there are with LBJ and Nixon), that would be different. But there aren't.
