To Appeal to Black Voters, GOP Must Run Gauntlet of Racism Accusations
Jonah Goldberg | Townhall.com
If the GOP wants to win more black votes, it will need to get a lot more “racist.”
The scare quotes are necessary because I don’t think the Republican Party is racist now (and, historically, the GOP has a lot less to answer for than the Democratic Party does) . .
I hate writing about these posts. Goldberg is wide-eyed insane. There he walks past us, and he’s wearing a hat. IN NEWS GOLDBERG: “You’ll Never Catch Me Wearing a Hat.” Look at ole’ Jonah go, gorging on garlic Funyuns. BREAKING GOLDBERG: “Why Goebbels Disliked The Jews, Loved His Funyuns.”
If Pantload, running from the salad bar, tripped and fell over Ann Coulter, and the tangled pair accidentally mated (Satan wakes), the future child would be some mix of Shirley Temple and Damien. Precious would present herself all rosy cheeks and sugar smiles. But then she’d dose your tea, squinch a portable sander up your sleepy ass, and nurple your bunghole forward and reverse for a half-hour of giggles. Jonah’s reaction: ‘Precious? She could never do that, no.’
But that hasn’t stopped a lot of people from slandering Republicans as racist for one reason or another.
. . Such moral bullying makes white liberals feel better about themselves. It scares moderates and centrists away from the Republican Party, and it no doubt helps dissuade wavering blacks from even thinking about giving the GOP an honest look.
Racism? Republicans could never do that, no.
Questioner: But the fact is, isn’t it, that Reagan does get to the Wallace voter and to the racist side of the Wallace voter by doing away with legal services, by cutting down on food stamps?
[Lee] Atwater: You start out in 1954 by saying, “Nigger, nigger, nigger.” By 1968 you can’t say “nigger” — that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states’ rights and all that stuff. You’re getting so abstract now [that] you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites. And subconsciously maybe that is part of it. I’m not saying that. But I’m saying that if it is getting that abstract, and that coded, that we are doing away with the racial problem one way or the other. You follow me — because obviously sitting around saying, “We want to cut this,” is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than “Nigger, nigger.”
Atwater was the deputy director of Reagan’s 1984 campaign, the manager of George H.W. Bush’s 1988 campaign (where he befriended George W.), and was, from 1989 through 1991, chairman of the whole shebang: The Republican National Committee. Where does Jonah think all the racial animus came from? Amos and Andy re-runs? He obviously thinks black people are senseless idiots. Meet the genuine liberal conspiracy.
