Of all the inside the Beltway race-baiters there are few more divisive and vitriolic than the Congressional Black Caucus. Hateful Hillary’s amen corner is singing all the right notes in the siren song of pimping racial animosity for political points and has made news over jacking up the rhetoric against favorite whipping boy Donald Trump. Given that the GOP nominee trumps the queen on all the real issues it’s always easier to just call a press conference and whip out the race card to continue to play voters for chumps.
According to the Hill “Black lawmakers: Trump is a racist courting white supremacists”:
Black Democratic lawmakers are denouncing Donald Trump as a racist, accusing his campaign of courting white supremacists.
The GOP nominee’s efforts at minority outreach have infuriated Democratic members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), who on Tuesday convened a conference call to accuse Trump of perpetuating stereotypes and using coded language meant to get white racists to the polls.
Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.) called Trump “one of the most racist, sexist and bigoted candidates” to run for president in modern history, and accused him of holding a “kinship with white supremacists.”
“He knows the audience he’s trying to reach out to and it’s not African-Americans,” Meeks said. “He’s trying to appeal to David Duke and the racists of the world with what they think are stereotypes. … He’s trying to appeal to the worst of the white supremacists and others he’s been catering to in the campaign to try and help them with turnout.”
Over the past week, Trump has made direct appeals to the black community, making the case that liberal policies have failed them and urging them to cut ties with the Democratic Party.
But Trump’s rhetoric has attracted criticism.
He has described inner cities as “war zones” in which black people live in constant fear of getting shot. And he has described the plights of black Americans as defined by poverty, poor education and few employment prospects.
That has infuriated liberals, who have accused Trump of trading in racist stereotypes.
CBC Chairman G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) said Trump’s pitches to black voters are delivered at mostly white campaign rallies, and called the outreach effort “a slap in the face” to the black community.
“If Donald Trump truly cared about African-Americans, he’d disavow his long history of hateful and racist attacks against our community, he’d apologize for having discriminated against black families … he’d disavow his support for white supremacists and white supremacy,” Butterfield said.
The crux of the piece (which can be read here) seems to be that Trump’s appeal to black voters has a good many of these gravy train riding, careerist leeches on the backs of taxpayers rightfully worried that their constituents may wake up and kick their asses to the curb. Hell, it’s not like any of the professional grievance mongers of the CBC have done much to lift up the lives of those in their own districts. In fact, they are saddling the black community with even more misery by shilling for the Wall Street whore Hillary who talks like a female Saul Alinsky to curry favor with black voters but will shit all over them lickety-split once the votes have been counted.
By the way, Rep. Butterfield is the wingnut who blamed Republicans for a militant black racist’s rampage that ended up with five dead Dallas cops last month.
It’s just the same warmed over crap, drop David Duke’s name a few times and people will quickly forget all about Hillary’s emails and conflicts of interest galore. It especially serves as a nice distraction on the day that the news that Hillary has been nailed dead to rights on influence peddling broke in an AP bombshell that “Many donors to Clinton Foundation met with her at State”:
More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money — either personally or through companies or groups — to the Clinton Foundation. It’s an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president.
At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars released so far to The Associated Press. Combined, the 85 donors contributed as much as $156 million. At least 40 donated more than $100,000 each, and 20 gave more than $1 million.
But her water-carriers in Congress – especially the CBC – could give a rat’s ass about Mrs. Clinton’s history of dishonesty and bribe taking, the only asses that they are worried about are their own and Trump has put the fear of the almighty into them that voters will stop to think how it is their own representatives who will be yoking the slaves and delivering them to the man and demand a shake-up of the status quo.
Americans should reject the exploitation of racial tensions in order to serve political agendas and a good place to start would be with Butterfield and his cohorts in the Congressional Black Caucus.
