“The Real Enemy is the Tea Party”

23 Aug

Is this all they have left?  Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) spoke to the black community at a town-hall meeting in Miami, FL, where she was joined by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), members of the Congressional Black Caucus and Jesse Jackson, among others.  Not to be outdone by the inflammatory comments last week by Rep.Waters, in which she said the Tea Party should “go straight to hell,” Rep. Wilson stated “the real enemy is the Tea Party –- let’s remember that.”

Jesse Jackson also blessed the crowd with his brilliance, stating that the Tea Party should be called “the Fort Sumter Tea Party that sought to maintain states’ rights and slavery.”  Stay classy, Jesse.

If this is a sign of what the approach of the Democrats is going to be from now until the 2012 elections, it’s going to get ridiculous.  Obama’s policies have failed, he’s out of bullets ideas (“bullets” = too violent), unemployment and the economy will not be getting better in time to help him in the next election, and he’s bleeding losing (“bleeding”= too violent too) support in all the polls.  So what’s left?

Calling Republicans racists, of course!  The Obama reelection team, along with their accomplices in the media, will have no problem making false, baseless, tired accusations of racism towards any and all Republicans.  They will also throw in other false, baseless accusations like extremists, terrorists and hostage-takers for good measure.

Hopefully, the Independent voters that the Democrats will need for Obama to win in 2012 will see all of them for who they really are:  race-baiters, who’d prefer to call their political opponents racists, in hopes that it will gin up hatred and animosity from their base,  than have an honest debate of ideas.

It’s the clearest example of projection that exists.  Democrats, and the media, constantly cry and moan about the lack of civility  or the extremism on the part of Republicans and the Tea Party, but it is the Democrats who are the ones that are to blame for the poisoning of the political discourse in our country.  They did it for 8 years to Bush and they have not stopped since.  Their only approach is class warfare, which does nothing but pit one group of people against another.  It solve no problems, it does nothing to address jobs, unemployment or the deficit.  Just pure nastiness to try to get people to think that “rich” people are the cause of our problems.

Nice job, guys!

Republicans to Save DC Voucher Program for Low-Income Children Killed by Obama

9 Mar

Remember when Obama killed the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program, “a school-voucher program authorized by Congress in 2004. The program gives students up to $7,500 to attend whatever school their parents choose.  The DC voucher program is a way out of one of the worst school districts in the country.”  The picture above is of “at least 1,300 school kids and several hundred adults (many of them single parents who had to get off work) gathered at Freedom Plaza to rally for the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship program in Washington.”  Notice anything in particular about the kids in the picture?  The thought of “what would the reaction be if a Republican was doing this to these particular kids” comes to mind.

Now there’s Hope…from Republicans for these low-income students in Washington D.C.  “The office of Speaker John Boehner reminds us that the budget passed by House GOP will restore the program in the SOAR ACT.”

“When Barack Obama took office on the mantle of Hope and Change, one of the first moves he and his Democratic allies in Congress made was to shut down the DC Opportunity Scholarship Programs to new students.  Despite a track record of sterling success in moving children in low-income families from failing public schools and giving them a chance at academic success — and a brighter future — Democrats cut funding to the DCOSP and consigned the children of the District of Columbia to the public-school monopoly.”

I’m sure that Obama’s reason for killing the program for low-income students had nothing to do with his political connections to teachers’s unions, particularly the National Education Association (NEA).  “In a March 6, 2009 letter to Obama, the NEA president Dennis Van Roekel called the D.C. program “an ongoing threat to public education in the District of Columbia” and urged Obama to “use your voice to help eliminate this threat” by opposing “any efforts to extend this ineffective program.”

I’d like to know where Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the Congressional Black Caucus and Democrats are on this issue? Where is the “mainstream” media?  Why aren’t they defending these children?  Just goes to show, once again, that these people are not interested in helping the people they claim to defend.  If the cause is not a liberal cause, they have no interest, even though the majority of these children are black.

This video shows black kids and their parents in D.C. asking “why?”

Jesse Jackson, Jr Says “Change the Constitution”

7 Mar

 

People like Jesse Jackson, Jr. (and Sr.) need to be as far away from the decision making process on dealing with long-term unemployment as possible.  “We need to add to the Constitution the right to a family to have a descent home.”  Um, didn’t we just try that?  Isn’t that what the sub-prime mortgage mess was all about? Giving loans to people who knowingly could not afford to pay them back (in the name of fairness).

These people are dangerous and are true idiots.

Jesse Jackson: “Some Things Should Be Taken Over”

28 Jan

Watch as Jesse Jackson admits that Michelle Obama’s attempt to tell us what we should, and should not, eat is a “take over,” but a “good take over.”  But he was not finished….it’s not just our diets that should be taken over.  No, no.  To Jackson, pretty much everything should be taken over (by Democrats, of course).  Enjoy the brilliance.
