When liberals have no argument or are losing they resort to using the race card. While there are issues regarding race with a small number of people, the majority of people in this country don’t really care about the color of a person’s skin. As MLK said, it is about the content of one’s character.
When liberals are losing they throw the race card around. It is a card from a well worn deck where every card is the race card and it is played all the time. In North Carolina blacks have been targeted by Democrat Kay Hagan with mailers indicating that if the Republican candidate wins Obama will be impeached. The flier has an image of blacks who were lynched.
Maryland is a hugely Democrat state with a plethora of minority voters and limousine liberals who vote for Democrats. The few heavily Democrat counties overwhelm the rest of the state and thus all citizens are at the mercy of those few subdivisions.
Anthony Brown was supposed to waltz in and become the next Governor of the state but his lackluster performance as Lieutenant Governor (including his failure with the healthcare exchange that wasted millions of dollars) coupled with his uninspiring campaign has left him in a close race. In a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2:1, Brown is only up by single digits.
Those are public polling numbers. The internals of the campaign must paint a different picture. My suspicion is that the polling indicates that black voters will likely skip the election or not show up in numbers sufficient enough to give Brown the win.
This must be the case because Brown has resorted to using the race card.
The Democrats in Maryland have targeted black voters with a flier that has pictures from long ago and indicates that if Brown is not elected the advances blacks have made will be lost. There are pictures from the civil rights marches, colored only entrance signs and other racist photos of a long ago era. The front has a picture of Dr. Martin Luther king, Jr with the words “It’s been a long journey…”
Dr. King was a Republican.
The wording is overtly racist in that it indicates “…it’s OUR turn…” Since blacks are the target of the fliers it is safe to conclude that the OUR is the black community. Your turn for what? To have a black governor? Will brown not be the governor of ALL people in the state? Is not indicating that it is OUR turn racist in and of itself?
The icing on the cake is that the images are all of the racism that existed because of Democrats. It was the Democrat party that opposed civil rights. It was the Democrat Party that gave us the Jim Crow laws that harmed blacks. It was the Democrat Party that resisted ending slavery and has enslaved blacks to the modern plantation of dependence on government.
All the images (save one which is Donald Trump and the Obama birth certificate which is not racist) are of things that happened because of Democrats and the Democrat in the election is using them as a weapon against a Republican, a person in the party that was formed to end slavery and that introduced and supported civil rights legislation.
Anthony Brown is desperate. The last desperate act of liberals is to play the race card and the Democrats have just played it in Maryland.
Let us hope that like the boy who cried wolf one too many times the voters in Maryland can see this false claim for what it is and ignore it.
Put a Republican in office to turn the state around.
God knows the decades long stranglehold Democrats have had on the state has not produced anything.
Particularly for the black population that remains enslaved (by Democrat design) to an oppressive government.
Never surrender, never submit.
