Speaking at the National Press Club in late September, black pastor Bishop E.W. Jackson unapologetically said it was time for black Americans to take a stand for what is right and called for a mass exodus from the Democratic Party due to the "irreconcilable conflict" between what the Democratic Party represents and their faith in God.
Regrettably, the Democratic Party has drawn a line in the sand forcing Christians of all colors to decide whether they will stand for their faith or against it if they stay in a party that blasphemes God when giving standing ovations for platform planks like same-sex marriage and abortions.
Divorcing the Democrat Party has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with "saving a generation" as Bishop Jackson said during his speech. Realistically speaking, it truly is, considering the damage done to the black race via abortions thanks to the Planned Parenthood organization Democrats enshrine. Democrat hero and founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was racist to the core; Sanger was photographed at KKK meetings sharing her dream to rid the planet of society’s "undesirables." Liberals do their best to spin facts, but there really is no coincidence black population has decreased in large cities where Sanger’s clinics are planted. Even President Obama said unplanned children are "punishments.
Even still, there are those who cannot see beyond the freebies Democrats indiscriminately toss to them. Listening to the rants of a black Ohio woman over the weekend singing the praises of a party and president she hasn’t a clue is taking advantage of her disadvantages reminded me that bigotry has a new face that looks nothing like an elephant and an awful lot like a donkey. The Ohio woman can be viewed on the Internet at http://goo.gl/pyMYZ.
Though she meant well, her words are an indictment on everything that is wrong with a party gone awry. Here, in her own unabridged and unedited words, is why she’s voting for Obama:
"Everyone in Cleveland, low minority got Obamaphone ... keep Obama in President ... you know, he gave us a phone; he gone do more." When asked how, specifically, she qualified to get her tremendously special Obamaphone she answered, "You siiiign up, if you on food stamps, you on Social Security, you got low-income, you on disability."
Martin Luther King (MLK) would roll over in his grave to see the state of his people today, who, for an Obamaphone, have sold their souls to a devilish lie that entitlements are free. King’s pivotal words "Free at last, free at last" have become "free stuff at last, free stuff at last."
Despite the color of his skin, President Obama’s job creation policies have been no friend to minorities generally, and blacks specifically. A recent Bureau of Labor Statistics report found black and Latino unemployment numbers continue to lead the pack and remain dangerously elevated.
With all the evidence stacked against them, Democrats continue to label Republicans as racists with ridiculous statements that a vote for a Republican would be a vote to end civil rights, entitlements, and the MLK holiday. Even our beloved Vice President said Mitt Romney would "put y’all back in chains."
It is as if Democrats quietly believe blacks cannot reason or care for themselves and excuse those like the black Mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, Mia Love, as anomalies. Many liberal networks blacked-out (pardon the pun) Love’s speech at the Republican National Convention telling a compelling story of self-reliance as the daughter of conservative immigrants. Before the night was over liberal bloggers had labeled Love a "worthless whore," an "Aunt Tom," and "house nigger" -- once again displaying an "irreconcilable conflict" between a party and its people who deserve much better.
