I am in awe at the video we’re sharing here today. The African-American community in America is probably the one group who has suffered the most at the hands of the Democrat Party over the years… and yet they are the one community who supports the Democrat Party most strongly. President Obama was able to consolidate 90% of the African-American vote across the country – that is an enormous voting bloc – and the Republican Party has barely been able to make a dent in that number over the last 6 years.
The question is, why? Why do black voters support the Democrat Party so stridently? With Democrat leadership has not come a revival of the black community, but a depression! Black families are far worse off today than they were six years ago. In Democrat cities and states across the country the black community is in dire straits because of the very policies and politicians they have vociferously supported.
Here at Eagle Rising, we want to spread the message of humanity. We truly believe that capitalism, true free-market enterprise, and conservative policies offer the best hope for America’s poor and downtrodden. But our arguments generally fall on deaf ears, because we are seen as partisan (and worse). But what about the arguments of those who are working in those Democrat strongholds with those impoverished communities? Will their arguments sway you?
Chicago activists Paul McKinley, Mark Carter, Joseph Watkins and Harold “Noonie” Ward recently went on the record with RebelPundit to deliver a message to black communities across the country.
“Look and see in your community, who are the real oppressors in our communities? … There is black on black crime in city hall, there is black on black crime in all the state capitols in America. Where black folks are voting against our interests, where black folks are getting poorer and poorer and other groups are getting richer and richer.”
“In Detroit, where are your leaders? There’s no white folks running Detroit… those are black folks running that city!”
“The only thing that they are offering the black community is Abortion on Demand.”
“Now he wants to have this conversation about minimum wage raise, because he knows that this is the way to get a lot of poor people’s attention. But, to hell with his minimum wage raise, we don’t have any jobs! A minimum wage raise for what!?”
“They’re not pushing a black agenda, they’re not pushing a family agenda, they’re pushing a neo-liberal agenda.”
“They force us into a life of welfare, we don’t want no welfare. We want opportunities to go to work, we want opportunities to own businesses. They bailed out major banks and these big investors but left the people starving.”
“There are no tea party’s in your city.” “We don’t have those people…”
“Hundreds of millions of dollars are coming down from the federal government, but the money is going to all these special interest groups… this whole corrupt Democrat system that gobbles up all the dollars and starves the people out.”
