I do not understand why Black people continue to vote for Democrats when the Democrats treat them so badly. Democrat politicians make promises to help Black people, but their “help” does not actually make life better for them. The fact is, Democrats do just enough for Black people to keep them voting Democrat, but not enough to actually help them to prosper.
I am not the only person that sees this problem. Roger L. Simon, an award-winning novelist, Oscar-nominated screenwriter, co-founder of PJMedia, and editor-at-large for The Epoch Times, left the Democrat Party for “the atrocious way it treated black people.”
Democrats were responsible for Jim Crow laws and President Lyndon B Johnson’s “War on Poverty.” Both programs made life worse for black people. Democrats are quick to call Republicans “racist,” but Democrats are actually more racist than Republicans. It is Democrats who continue to divide America on race, not Republicans.
Simon wrote about the recent recall election for California Governor Gavin Newsom. As you may be aware, there were two votes possible. The first vote was to decide if Newsom should be recalled, and the second vote was to decide who would replace him if the recall was successful.
Despite being a terrible governor, Newsom was not recalled, but Larry Elder received 47% of the vote, comparable to 48.5% for Arnold Schwarzenegger in his recall attempt. Both candidates were “competing against dozens of candidates.” Elder would have won the election in a landslide if voters had voted for a new governor. Simon suggested that a certain type of voter kept Newsom in office despite his lack of ability to lead.
I submit that many of them were what we used to call “limousine liberals” and might today be called “Tesla-crats.” They are the rich, often mega-rich, almost always white, people who drive by the myriad horrific homeless encampments of California, trying not to look, as they head for the next trendy restaurant or their magnificent home.
And what is the largest group on a percentage basis in those homeless encampments? Well, I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that it’s blacks.
How can we not have contempt for the hypocritical (to say the least) “Tesla-crats”? But
they’re only the plutocratic tip of the Democratic war on blacks we're watching at this very moment.
Simon then discussed the border crisis in in Del Rio, Texas, where a camp of illegal immigrants grew within days from a couple of thousand people to more than 15,000 living under the International Bridge. Most migrants living under the bridge are from Haiti, meaning that they are black. We do not know how many of the migrants are infected with COVID-19 because they have not been tested. We expect that most immigrants will be allowed to enter the United States. There are two ways that black people are endangered.
The first is that the Biden administration claims that it is deporting the Haitians back to Haiti. How many of the 1.6 million people with brown or white skin were deported? Are they being deported because they are black?
The second is that the black Haitians allowed to reside in the United States will end up living in black communities, bringing COVID-19 with them. Black communities already suffer more from COVID-19, so bringing the Haitians into their communities will worsen the situation.
Simon mentioned that the Biden administration is punishing the Southern red states by restricting monoclonal antibody treatments. Since a larger percentage of Black people become infected with COVID-19, the punishment will affect Black people more. In Joel Pollak’s words, “President Joe Biden’s decision to cut deliveries of monoclonal antibodies to southeastern states, in what critics have called a politically-motivated effort to punish Republican states, could end up sentencing black people to death from coronavirus.”
Democrats want the votes of black people, but they do not care about them as human beings. They use and abuse them and then cast them aside when they are no longer useful – such as when they become conservative. Large numbers of Black people are recognizing the maltreatment of Democrats and are leaving the Democrat Party.
One reason the Democrats opened the border is to obtain more Democrat voters. They prey on minorities, and they do not seem to care which minority it is. They claim to be compassionate toward minorities, but they are neglectful and/or abusive.
