Michael Steele Admits GOP Has Been Strategically Racist For 40+ Years, Hooray!
Perhaps you have heard about this one! Michael Steele gave another one of his speeches. In this speech, he confirmed what all you race-baiting liberal 'tards have been wetting your pants about since forever: minorities such as Africkans have not had much of a reason to vote for the Republican party since Pat Buchanan wrote up Nixon's "Southern Strategy" 40-some years ago. Thanks, Michael! What's your excuse?
Why should an African-American vote Republican?
"You really don't have a reason to, to be honest -- we haven't done a very good job of really giving you one. True? True," Republican National Chairman Michael Steele told 200 DePaul University students Tuesday night.
"We have lost sight of the historic, integral link between the party and African-Americans," Steele said. "This party was co-founded by blacks, among them Frederick Douglass. The Republican Party had a hand in forming the NAACP, and yet we have mistreated that relationship. People don't walk away from parties, Their parties walk away from them.
"For the last 40-plus years we had a 'Southern Strategy' that alienated many minority voters by focusing on the white male vote in the South. Well, guess what happened in 1992, folks, 'Bubba' went back home to the Democratic Party and voted for Bill Clinton."
Boy howdy! "For the last 40-plus years we had a 'Southern Strategy' that alienated many minority voters by focusing on the white male vote in the South." This is what libs/commies have been saying (because duh) all along, in response to the sunnier conventional wisdom that Nixon was sorta sketchy... but Ronald Reagan got everyone to jack off to America again! He eschewed racism for America , one might say.
Remember when Ronald Reagan ended racism forever, the first time, by... just making fun of black people all the time? Sure you do.
Why doesn't Michael Steele?
