Standing up for what you believe in is easy when everyone in your circle of friends stands and agrees with you. Standing up for what you believe in when it’s not only unpopular in your circle of friends and family, but completely vilified by all of your peers? Well, that takes courage…an inordinate amount of courage.
The black community has been a dependable and faithful voting block for the Democrat party for years because Democrats have shrouded control under the guise of charity. Instead of preaching empowerment- they preach entitlement. Creating a class of people dependent on government support assures Democrats of votes at each go around. Why? Because nobody ever votes themselves out of entitlements.
Not all of them though. In fact, I have a handful of good, strong friends that I have worked closely within the GOP that have never allowed their skin color to dictate their votes. They broke away from their community and in many cases, their families, in the last two elections and did something courageous. They didn’t vote for Obama– declaring publicly that content of character was far more important than the color of his skin.
The hateful vitriol that black conservatives have to deal with from those within the left wing party leaves me shocked and sickened and anyone who actually cares to watch can see what happens to people within the black community who break away from the Democratic party. For example:
When the Borellis, who are employees of the conservative group FreedomWorks, attempted to pay for booth space at this year’s 104th National NAACP conference in Florida, they were told there was no room for them despite plenty of exhibit space remaining open.
The NAACP website states that the mission of the organization is to, “ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.” The objectives of the NAACP include ensuring “the political, educational, social, and economic equality of all citizens,” and removing “all barriers of racial discrimination through democratic processes.”
Stacy Dash, for example, proved that the Democrat party is the party of “choice” only as long as you make their choice. Tolerance is a one way street with the liberal left. When you make a decision, by tweeting your support for a Republican candidate, you better take cover because it sets off a firestorm of hate in epic proportions. Dash was called “an indoor slave “(quite possibly the nicest insult I read on her), had threats on her life, and was accused of voting for a “white devil.” … Read the Rest at: at Liberty Juice
