Government officials to schmooze black preachers in hopes of boosting turnout

What do you do when the administration your party put in place makes a mess of things? You go back to the base with an attack message against your opponent, especially if you can't tout accomplishments for your base.

The Washington Examiner said:

“Attorney General Eric Holder, the IRS, and the liberal lawyers at the ACLU will brief several hundred pastors in the African American community on how to participate in the presidential election -- which the Congressional Black Caucus chair expects will help President Obama's campaign.”

Technically the government employees, assisted by the ACLU, are going to inform these pastors about what they can actually say in the pulpit. That’s technically essential because the church could lose non-profit status if, technically, the pastor pushes an ideology or a candidate from that pulpit.

The head of the Congressional Black Caucus, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.), called voter ID laws “a form of Jim Crow-style ‘poll tax’ on seniors and black voters.” That appears to be the message Dems will take to black people ahead of November. Cleaver should have added the term ‘Democrats’ before ‘Jim Crow,’ if he really wanted to put his claims in historic context.

Attorney General Eric Holder and someone from IRS will participate, said Cleaver. The American Civil Liberties Union will be there, water buckets in hand, no doubt.

Maybe AG Holder could explain how the government bureaucracy directly meddling in votes of a population based purely on skin color is legal.

Democrats enjoy blind loyalty from black people, largely based on empty rhetoric from leaders whose primary goals are maintaining a grip on their own power and wealth. It’s a political class thing.

While the Democrat party has largely been obsessed with what strategists call the “hispanic vote,” blacks haven’t fared so well under Holder and President Barack Obama’s term.

As media talk about the decline in the white population, no one’s talking about the fact that blacks account for less than 16 percent of U.S. births. How many of those births are to refugees and immigrants whose skin color is black?

Blacks and whites in America share a declining birth rate.

The only one on the rise is the group labeled “hispanics.” No doubt Holder and crew will make rounds in those quarters soon.

Democrats have always maintained a grip on power based on skin color and to some degree, the manipulation of poverty.

Maybe those pastors could ask Holder about the black unemployment rate while they’re schmoozing—13 percent as of April.

It might be fun for some of those pastors to get a history lesson about the party they rally their congregations to support.

Is the vote klatsch constitutional? Do you honestly think Holder is concerned about that at all?
