Never let a manufactured crisis go to waste. The plantation is eager to find some more black voters to help Harry Reid keep his job.
With their Senate majority imperiled, Democrats are trying to mobilize African-Americans outraged by the shooting in Ferguson, Mo., to help them retain control of at least one chamber of Congress for President Obama’s final two years in office.
In black churches and on black talk radio, African-American civic leaders have begun invoking the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, along with conservative calls to impeach Mr. Obama, as they urge black voters to channel their anger by voting Democratic in the midterm elections, in which minority turnout is typically lower.
It’s all about the “anger”.
The media kept claiming that the Tea Party was angry… but now it turns out to be the Democrats.
Or as Obama told Latinos, “Punish our enemies”. This is the naked racist divisiveness promoted by the Democratic Party.
Other steps, such as recruiting N.B.A. players to help register more African-Americans, are also underway.
Come for the NBA players. Stay for the racism.
“If there was as much marching at high noon on Election Day, we would not have to march at midnight,” said Representative James E. Clyburn of South Carolina, the third-ranking House Democrat, alluding to the late-night protests in Ferguson.
The Rev. Al Sharpton said listeners to his nationally syndicated radio show were increasingly focused on the elections. “People feel like they would be betraying the spirit of what happened in Ferguson, as well as enabling this impeachment rhetoric, if there’s a low turnout,” he said.
Vote for a bunch of rich white guys… for the spirit of Ferguson.
If only the Democrats had controlled the Senate, Michael Brown would never have been shot. Oh wait… they did control it.
Mayor Kasim Reed of Atlanta said whites — or, as he put it, “the majority community” — did not fully appreciate the fury among African-Americans and their desire to register their discontent.
“The most important tribute you can make to individuals who you believe were treated unfairly is to exercise your franchise.”
The most important thing to do… is help keep Reed’s party bosses in power. Do it for Michael Brown. Or the NBA. Or whatever.
