Wrong Speech, Wrong Audience
Was GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney handed the wrong speech before he stepped up to the podium to address the NAACP? Surely, it had to be clear to him that he wasn’t exactly speaking to a group of Tea Partiers (although we do have black members and we welcome them with open arms)?
When he vowed to repeal Obamacare, the NAACP, unsurprisingly, booed him. At some point, he also ruefully admitted that he probably wouldn’t win over the African-American electorate. In 2008, 96 percent of African-Americans voted for Obama, and the NAACP wholeheartedly supported him.Still, you have to give Romney credit for guts. He pointed out that his father, Michigan Gov. George Romney, broke with his father to support the Civil Rights Act. Romney needed to do his homework there; the GOP supported the act. Southern Democrats were opposed to it.
That 96 percent of African-Americans voted for Obama is disappointing, if not exactly shocking. Those are the same kind of numbers that put Saddam Hussein in charge of Iraq until Pres. G.W. Bush put him out of commission. That’s the kind of bloc voting, the kind of collective mind-set that has brought us to the brink of socialism.You would think that of any group, the black people would most value freedom and independence. Although it took hundreds of years to achieve, they now have the same opportunities everyone else does. They’re given education for free. Their housing and food are free. And apparently, they want to keep it that way.
There’s no excuse for the failure in black schools except lack of will. They’ve been so brainwashed by community agitators that the white community hates them and that they should hate the white people back that they don’t even think of trying. Why should they, when for a simple vote, our government hands them everything. Health care is just the next item on the socialist shopping list.So of course they booed Mitt Romney for vowing to repeal Obamacare. They won’t be carrying the burden for this costly and intrusive government program; the rest of us will. And that seems to suit the inner city African-American community just fine. As far as they’re concerned, it’s just another example of “social justice.”
To us, it’s just another example of thuggery.
