Just so you know MSNBC, African-Americans are way smarter than the RNC and Conservatives are Racists

MSNBC has angered the RNC and conservatives by a tweet,
Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family the tweet read.
MSNBC later apologized. But that's not enough for the aggrieved RNC bigots and right-wing Wurlitzer of outrage.

"Until [Griffin] takes internal corrective action and personally apologizes—not just to the RNC but to all right-of-center Americans—I’m banning all RNC staff from appearing on, associating with, or booking any RNC surrogates on MSNBC," Reince Priebus said in the memo.

For all their anger over the "Race Card" conservatives play it more often than a Las Vegas Croupier.

Conservatives are the wimpest whinners in the world. Now, it explains why young conservatives eschewed military service during the GWoT as Right-Wing Chicken Hawks: The Next Generation.

But, when it comes to race politics the RNC and conservatives are similutaneously brilliant and blind. They very much resemble the imagine of George W. Bush's America post-9/11, the blinded cyclops, enraged and flailing around.

The problem is conservatives don't know how to talk to African-Americans, not that liberals do either mind you, it's just that Republicans don't know and don't care.

So, much as they have done in other areas which confound their worldview, right-wingers have crafted a fantasy realm in which it's not that African-Americans can clearly see conservative values are evil and will harm them but, that it's a giant conspiracy which has fooled them.

The immediate reaction by conservative bigots to the paucity of Black Republicans is to deride African-Americans as racist. One way they attempt to prove it is by pointing out the disparity in voting records for African-Americans which are heavily weighted towards Democrats over Republicans.

That disparity was overwhelming for the 2008 and 2012 Presidental elections, in which, President Obama won 96% of the African-American vote. 

But, some right-wingers attempt to move beyond the blacks are racist cause they won't vote for whites by proclaiming that Democrats are the Real Racists and have been duping African-Americans all along.

Senator Rand Paul has been peddling this for years and has always received massive applause and acclaim from white conservatives whenever he trots out his tired mantra Democrats are the real racists. But, when Senator Paul took his travelling clown show to Howard University to whitesplain to the assembled students that the Republican Party of the 21st century is the same as the 19th century, "The argument I’m trying to make is we haven’t changed."

Paul went on to cite the evil racist behavior of Democrats from the 1860's and 1890's as evidence and was surprised by the level of knowledge possessed by the Howard students. Senator Paul couldn't name the first African-American elected to the Senate. The crowd at Howard University educated him.

During the 2012 election, Vice President Joe Biden angered the right-wing when he pointed out the Romney/Ryan economic plan was "to let the big banks once again write their own rules, unchain Wall Street. He is going to put y'all back in chains."

Conservatives were livid and tried to diminish Biden by claiming this was a typical Biden gaffe, but just like the MSNBC tweet the real reason Right-Wingers were upset is because it highlighted the truth of about conservatives values.

However, Biden's insight into conservative values doesn't serve their purposes well enough so conservatives then engage in their next favorite practice making up quotes. Now, Right-Wingers will make up quotes which support their beliefs and they attribute them to the Founding Fathers or Abraham Lincoln but, will invent vile, despicable quotes to use against those who disagree with their evil bigotry.

The current quote which is making the rounds amongst Tea Party Bigots is the LBJ fabrication, "I'll have those n*****s voting Democrat for the next 100 years."

This is an outright lie. It's undercut by the use of 'Democrat', the Right's current favorite way to make a childish taunt against the Democratic Party. But, more tellingly this right-wing radio slander against LBJ is necessary to fit into the conservative worldview.

Conservatives believe that black people are stupid. So it's funny, how the conservative message of, 'Hey, black person if you weren't such a dumbass you'd vote for republicans!' doesn't resonate and win them more votes, but Republicans are conditioned to think whipping and berating their constituents is a good way to garner their vote.

GEG: The current quote which is making the rounds among Tea Party Bigots is the LBJ fabrication, "I'll have those n*****s voting Democrat for the next 100 years."

I don't know that it's so much "current" as it's a quote that the Right has believed to be true for some time. They can't understand why blah people vote Democratic in such high percentages... clearly it must be because the Democrats have tricked them. Which, of course means the Republicans think African Americans are easily tricked (stupid). Now all they have do is convince the blah people that they're being tricked and that they should stop taking other people's money. A winning strategy that, so far, doesn't seem to be working for some reason.

Dervish, Well Tom Huelskamp (who called Rachel Maddow a cheerleader after she caught him being a hyperbolic Obama is a King Tyrant during the SoTU) just reiterated the Democrats are the Real Racists in response to the MSNBC tweet.

But, from personal experience during the Chicago Polar Vortex, I had my furnace inspected. The contractor was a Tea Party Sarah Palin lover, unbeknowst to me, after the estimate he wanted to engage in Politics because he saw my Proud Union Member yard sign and Veterans for Obama stickers.

As an aside I always wonder why a business owner would do this, but he repeated the quote telling me he had heard it on RightWing Radio and from Tea Party meetings in suburban Illinois and found out through "research" that it was true.

Besides, telling him it was a fabrication and telling him I wasn't going to have those kind of lies told to me in my own house, I also disabused him of a bunch of other right-wing lies he tried telling me. But, as he escalated his voice I had to inform him the business transaction was over paid him for the inspection and told him I didn't need the work done.

I know my story is anecdotal but this quote seems to be bubbling up amongst the right in preparation for 2014.

Okay long story over, I think your analysis about what Republicans think of African-Americans and Democratis is true and this is one of those *facts* conservatives tell themselves to make them feel better.

The tweet was offensive. Period.

Grung_e_Gene said...

The tweet was not offensive semi-colon racist Duck Dynasty conservatives are offensive exclamation point

ChickenHammer said...

Thanks Gene, if I ever meet a racist Duck Dynasty conservative I'll keep your warning in mind.

You make it awfully hard to comment.

Dervish Sanders said...

Reince Priebus whines about the tweet because he recognizes the truth it contains. Repubs may very well lose the presidency again in 2016 due to their lack of appeal to minorities. The tweet gets an "LOL" from me for that reason. Silly Reince... complaints about minorities perceiving you badly won't get you minority votes.

Philo, I've tried turning off the spambot comment catcher with negative results but, maybe I'll give it another go.

Dervish, Absolutely, it's always criminals who cry the most when I catch them. The RNC Whites Only Club cried foul when their bigotry was laid out.

The Right is hoping to swipe the 2016 Presidential election because by 2020 they'll have no chance unless they've got the incumbency factor.
