Democrats have rediscovered black people, having focused political rhetoric on the sector the Leftist party calls ‘hispanic’ for much of President Barack Obama’s first term.
As the first black-white president, Obama entered the presidency by casting himself as a centrist who would unify the American people. Once he began to serve as president, that changed. Obama and his fellow Democrats have aimed at dividing America for almost four years, hopping into a “way back” machine that cranks up tension like that in the last century as civil rights issues simmered.
The Daily Caller pointed out that Obama for America even posted a video “touching on contentious issues” related to the death of Trayvon Martin. As the story of Martin’s death began to draw media attention, Obama expressed sympathy for the family and the president said if he had a son, the son would look like Trayvon. That was purely an allusion to race because the teen looked nothing like Obama.
The video, said TDC, has been removed and there’s simply a link to it now.
Former green jobs czar Van Jones told a political panel on TV Obama wouldn’t lose the black vote even if he was gay. Jones laughed deeply as he said that. Did Jones imply black people look down on gay people?
TDC reported one black journalist said Obama is so “jarring” that people step into the "way back machine” and there’s a sense of “panic in the majority culture.”
Obama and the Democrats in Congress are “jarring,” but it has nothing to do with skin color. This administration's policies, both foreign and domestic, and the failed leadership of Sen. Harry Reid are the problem.
If we get four more years of the same-old-same-old, who knows what we’ll pay for electricity, groceries, health insurance and clothing? The shrinking dollar affects us all, regardless of skin color, and our current runaway living expenses can be largely attributed to the Democrat Party whose energy policy for decades has obstructed America's natural resources. Up the cost of energy and you up the cost of everything.
