Exodus: Inner-City Blacks Abandoning Obama & Democrat’s Liberal Agenda
This year old video from Rebel Pundit is interesting in the lack of respect that inner-city blacks express for the economic policies of Barack Obama and the democratic party . Of course it changed nothing and at the end of the day the black community overwhelmingly voted democratic , but the video is still instructive in that it exposes cracks within the democratic coalition .
” Clint Eastwood stumping for Mitt Romney suggests shift in Hollywood’s political paradigm, experts say”
“Hollywood has long been considered an overwhelmingly liberal community, but given Clint Eastwood’s “surprise” blockbuster appearance in support of GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney
this week – are the tables starting to
” It’s a battle for America’s heartland “
“To see why the choice of Clint Eastwood as the surprise guest speaker at last night’s close of the
Republican Convention was so brilliant, look at the electoral map.
The Democrats, thanks to their dominance of the big cities, control the West Coast and the Northeast — plus (as long as the dead voters of Cook County can still get to the polls) President Obama’s home state of Illinois. The GOP dominates the South, the Plains and the Rocky Mountain states.”
“What’s interesting is that I am hearing similarly discomfited talk around me, and seeing it in my emails. In the past few weeks I’ve heard some surprising people admit they’ve been arming themselves and purchasing ammunition — one such discussion happened all around me at the hairdresser’s while I sat and listened. The stylist and his boss, they’re storing food and arming themselves. The chiropractor who popped in to say hello while taking his afternoon stroll said he is armed, too: “never in my life thought I’d have a gun in the house, now we have two.”
They’re arming, they say, because they “see it all going bad.” These same folks who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 were now asserting an idea the far-left had floated around before that election, but instead of “Bush is going to install martial law and suspend elections.” they’re saying it of Obama. “He paid off his friends and did nothing to create jobs and he wants it all to go bad, because then he can stay in power and dictate.”
Yeah, it seems as paranoid and nuts as it did when it was said about Bush, but this stuff is not being said in an extremist corner of the internet — it’s being said in a middle-class suburban salon in an area where 30% (or more) of the businesses are now shuttered, and houses are being foreclosed upon and then re-occupied seemingly overnight, creating what the stylist called “a neighborhood full of changes and no hope.”
“The man with no plan.”
“Our elites have sunk into a boutique decadence of moral preening entirely disconnected from reality: A non-homophobic chicken in every pot, an abortifacient dispenser in every Catholic university, a high-speed-rail corridor between every two bankrupt California municipalities . . . “

” There’s no question that a sober discussion about the proper size and scope of government would be welcome. And Ryan has proved
himself more than capable of engaging in such a dialogue. But don’t expect anything even
remotely resembling that from today’s Democrats. The party of FDR these days is only interested in one thing: spreading fear.
To get a taste of the Democrats’ “sober” and “serious” approach to big issues, consider the ad a liberal group ran last May attacking Ryan’s
Medicare reform. That ad depicted a Ryan lookalike shoving a screaming, wheelchair bound woman off a cliff. Not one prominent Democrat decried that ad.”
The gaffe that wasnt
” One of the few things Americans on both sides of the partisan divide can agree on is that this election is shaping up to be vexingly petty. The hunt for gaffes –some real, many imagined — has taken over. Romney’s recent overseas tour, we are told, produced three: an impolitic, if defensible, statement about Britain’s preparations for the Olympics; a statement about the importance of culture in economic development; and when an aide to Romney dressed down a reporter with an inflated sense of entitlement.
Not only is that list pathetic in its own right, in the rush to paint Romney’s campaign as hapless, the press and partisans glossed over a philosophical insight worthy of a presidential debate.”
Senators James M. Inhofe and Jim
DeMint lay out in no uncertain terms how the left continually attempt to subvert the Constitution and subject us to the “authority” of an unelected bureaucratic elite via the treaty process and the UN .
The time has come to withdraw all financial support of the den of thieves in Turtle Bay , evict the despots , renounce our membership and create a new international organization comprised of only democratically elected countries .
The notion that there is any equality to be found between nations such as the US , UK , France , Japan or Canada and criminal tyrannys such as Iran , North Korea , Cuba or Venezuela is absurd on its face and should repulse any intelligent person .
In the past , control of the (dinosaur) media meant control of history . No longer . Bless Al Gore and his internet .
“For years, I have been hearing that liberals are the intellectual betters of conservatives. The arguments in support of this claim have never cut much ice—not even the so-called “empirical” ones—but the claim continues to be advanced by liberals with the same smug self-satisfaction they take in assuring themselves that they own a monopoly on tolerance, fairness, and being fun-loving.”
“But no one is suggesting, as Rosker implies, that young people be left to their own devices when it comes to determining which behaviors are healthful and which are not. That is why they have parents whose job is to guide them in making healthful choices. That responsibility is theirs—not the nanny state’s. Which is why Bloomberg’s ban on the sale of Big Gulps is so pernicious.”

2) Obviously Republicans hate women like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann! Wait, bad examples…uhm, let’s see, they kill female babies, put women’s faces on pinatas and beat them, and degrade women by drawing them with penises in their mouth! That’s still us? Geeze, uh…war on women! Move on to the next item! Hurry, hurry!

While I have posted about this phenomena before here and here , Michael Barone makes the point so much more eloquently than I could ever hope to do .
“It’s comfortable living in a cocoon — associating only with those who share your views, reading journalism and watching news that only reinforces them, avoiding those on the other side of the cultural divide.
Liberals have been doing this for a long time. In 1972, the movie critic Pauline Kael said it was odd that Richard Nixon was winning the election, because everyone she knew was for George McGovern.”
This from what I would judge to be one of the most astute readers of the American electorate today .
“But cocooning has an asymmetrical effect on liberals and conservatives. Even in a cocoon, conservatives cannot avoid liberal mainstream media, liberal Hollywood entertainment and, these days, the liberal Obama administration.”
I firmly believe his assertion that conservatives are better prepared to argue their case .
“Liberals can protect themselves better against assaults from outside their cocoon. They can stay out of megachurches and make sure their remote controls never click on Fox News. They can stay off the AM radio dial so they will never hear Rush Limbaugh.
The problem is that this leaves them unprepared to make the best case for their side in public debate. They are too often not aware of holes in arguments that sound plausible when bandied between confreres entirely disposed to agree.”
“Co-blogger Eugene Volokh has an excellent post on how the proposed People’s Rights
Amendment threatens freedom of speech. But it’s important to recognize that the proposal goes far beyond denying free speech rights to entities organized as corporations. It would deny them all other constitutional rights as well. ”
Leave to the party of ” liberty” not , to propose this sort of nonsense . Remember , when you can’t win in the arena of ideas , change the rules . The progressive mantra .
