Black voters voting behavior is a perplexing dynamic. Their unwavering support of Democrat politicians and the liberal agenda that creates an illusion of caring about their plight of living life at the bottom is stunning. But this didn’t happen overnight. It’s been decades of head in the sand mentality that has cost black voters dearly.
Recall former Democrat Senator Robert Byrd, who rose to a leadership position as a member of the Ku Klux Klan. Byrd filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights Act. That reality didn’t stop former President Obama, who had said upon learning of Byrd’s passing that the Senate “has lost a venerable institution and America has lost a voice of principle and reason.” Really? Remember Georgia Representative John Lewis, who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King for civil rights? Well, he said in the aftermath of Byrd’s passing that he “will miss Senator Byrd; he was a true statesman.” Seriously? Recall that former Republican Senator Trent Lott didn’t get that pass when he spoke at a birthday party for former segregationist Senator Strom Thurman. Lott said in a lighthearted and obvious clumsy way that the country would not have the problems it has had, if Thurman had been elected President. Democrat’s immediately rebuked Lott’s statement, and they were unforgiving. John Lewis responded he was shocked and chagrined, while Jesse Jackson called for Lott to resign, and Vice President Al Gore called for the Senate to censure Lott. Yet, recall former segregationist Alabama Governor George Wallace, who was accepted with open arms by the Democrat Party even though he stood in front of the University of Alabama saying, “Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.” Pathetic.
