Back in 2011, former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich did the one thing guaranteed to send the Left into orbit; that is, tell the truth. Remember this hideously racist remark?
From Fox Nation:
If you are the Republicans you should say we have more people on food stamps today than ever before in history. President Obama is the most successful food stamp president in American history. We need a program to put 14 million Americans back to work. We are committed to creating jobs. The Democrats are committed to killing jobs. You decide which future you want, paychecks or food stamps?
Oh the humanity! How can this man go on national television and make these cringe-inducing remarks? Suggesting that food stamps are related to race? What was this man saying, that blacks want food stamps? Disgusting, disgraceful! What an embarrassment to the Republican party! Fear mongering and playing the race card? Seriously? The GOP using the tactics of the segregationist Democrat party? Naturally, NBC's David ""Howdy Doody" Gregory, buffoonish anchor of "Meet the Press" was horrified that anyone would connect "America's first African-American president" with the explosion in eligibility for food stamps.
Apparently, though, now race baiting and fear mongering are the hottest strategies being employed by the Republican party, if the disgusting and despicable conduct of establishment Republicans in the recent GOP primary is any guide. From The Examiner:
On Tuesday, freelance journalist Charles C. Johnson posted a fear mongering radio advertisement on YouTube endorsing Senator Thad Cochran, which clearly targeted black Mississippians who did not vote in the Democrat primary in early June.
The female narrator warns that the Tea Party seeks to disenfranchise black voters, wants to cut "all" government programs, and implies that they aim to re-segregate Mississippi. How far is too far, when it comes to political advertisements? Where is the line between politics and slander?
The ad, transcribed here, starts with an unsubstantiated claim that the Tea Party is telling people that if they vote in the Republican primary, they cannot vote in the general election in November. The narrator says, "If someone tells you that by voting today, you cannot vote in November - it’s just a Tea Party, bald-faced lie."
The woman then goes on to tell listeners that if they do not vote in the GOP primary, the Tea Party will "take away all...government programs." She warns, "Mississippi will never be the same."
The narrator laments,
"By not voting, you are saying 'take away all of my government programs, such as food stamps, early breakfast and lunch programs, millions of dollars to our black universities'…everything we and our families depend on that comes from Washington will be cut."
Making a thinly veiled reference to segregation, the radio advertisement continues to warn that if Democrats do not "spend five dollars on gas to vote" in the Republican primary, "the Tea Party [will]...set us back to the good old bad days..." The short commercial encourages listeners to "Vote against the Tea Party, vote Thad Cochran." Finally, the narrator says, "Remember, if you didn't vote in the June third [Democrat] primary, you can vote today."
As reported at WDAM, a local news source in Mississippi, Jones County Assistant District Attorney J.Ronald Parrish stated that according to Mississippi statute, “If you're a member of one political party and you intend to support that candidate in that political party," he explained, "it is against the law for you to vote in the other political party’s primary.”
So these elitist, big government-loving Republicans shamelessly use the despicable tactics of the Democrat Left, by fear mongering in the black community about reductions in the food stamp program, and where is David Gregory? It's racist for Newt Gingrich to mention the deliberate explosion in the number of people eligible for food stamps, but when when an establishment RINO uses the race card to "win" a GOP primary by advertising about reductions in food stamp allocations, they are silent? What am I missing? Thad Cochran and the establishment GOP's message was simply "blacks love food stamps." Racist enough?
Today I saw the Rev. Al Sharpton on the 24/7 televised insane asylum, because, of course, I watch so you don't have to, say that he was disgusted at how low the Republican party had fallen. I never thought I'd say I agree with Mr. Sharpton, but I guess there's a first time for everything.
My fellow patriots in Mississippi, I hope and pray that Chris McDaniel's campaign will be able to get to the bottom of the "get out the vote" efforts by the Cochran campaign. If they are not, I suggest that you stay home. Can you really vote for someone who played the race card, and used the lowest aspects of human nature, the something for nothing appeal that should be revolting to any real American? I don't think so.
