WHEN DEMOCRAT POLITICIANS - LIKE CROOKED CHARLIE RANGEL -AND THEIR WATER-CARRIERS CALL US TEA PARTIERS "RACIST" THEY ARE MERELY BEING DIVISIVE CYNICS AND MENDACIOUS PURVEYORS OF HATE:
The real reason the Democrats are making a CONCERTED effort to smear the Tea Party as racist is to motivate their BLACK BASE top vote in large numbers/high % this November.
One of the MAJOR reasons Obama beat McCain was the black turnout; they need to repeat this to have any chance of holding the House and the Senate.
Here's the back-story:
THE MARGIN OF VICTORY FOR OBAMA WAS THE BLACK VOTE;
In last year’s presidential election, younger blacks voted in greater proportions than whites for the first time and black women turned out at a higher rate than any other racial, ethnic and gender group, a census analysis released Monday confirmed.
As a result, in the election that produced the nation’s first black president, the historic gap between black and white voter participation rates over all virtually evaporated.
Total turnout in 2008 was about the same as it was in 2004, about 64 percent of voting age citizens.
But with Barack Obama on the ballot, the makeup of the 131 million who voted last year was markedly different.
While the number of non-Hispanic white voters remained roughly the same, 2 million more blacks, 2 million more Latinos and 600,000 more Asians turned out.
Compared with 2004, the voting rate for black, Asian and Hispanic voters increased by about four percentage points.
The rate for whites declined by one percentage point.
REPEAT: THE MARGIN OF VICTORY FOR OBAMA WAS THE BLACK VOTE.
AND IT WASN'T AN ACCIDENT; POLITICO - 10/6/08, JUST A MONTH BEFORE THE ELECTION:
IN 2008, THE LEFT HAD A BLACK MAN ON THE TOP OF THE TICKET, AND TOOK ADVANTAGE OF IT. (THEY ALSO LIED, AND TOLD THE ELECTORATE THAT OBAMA - THE MOST LEFTIST CANDIDATE EVER NOMINATED - WAS A CENTRIST.)
As Barack Obama trekked through the Philadelphia suburbs, Northern Virginia and Greensboro, N.C., in recent days, his campaign was ramping up a massive parallel effort in big cities like Detroit, Cleveland and Miami.
In the largely black precincts of those metropolises, radio broadcasts blast constant reminders to vote for Obama, field organizers swarm, and megastars including Jay-Z, Russell Simmons and LeBron James have led massive rallies, working to reach not just the substantial portion of the black community who regularly come out to vote but also the younger people and others who have never before cast a ballot.
Though the rallies are publicized, much of the advertising directed at black voters isn't. Get-out-the-vote ads on radio and television aren't released to the media, and the number of new voters Obama has registered is a closely held secret. He is, however, leaving no stone unturned when it comes to registering African-American voters. The campaign has, for example, a major initiative aimed at turning barbershops and beauty parlors into voter registration offices. This week, Kimora Lee Simmons' E! Network reality show, "Life in the Fab Lane," carried a campaign ad at the bottom of the screen reminding citizens to register to vote.
Monday morning, the deadline for registration in several key states, Obama appeared on two of the most widely heard African-American radio programs, where hosts implored listeners to register to vote and Obama directed them to his campaign's registration website.
"The African-American vote can be a game-changer in all sorts of states," Obama told host Steve Harvey. "In Florida, in Indiana, in North Carolina, in Ohio. I just want people to look at the numbers."
Little of this targeted outreach has produced images of Obama addressing black crowds or mingling with black officials, and most has gone unnoticed by the broader electorate.
"If you didn't notice it, then you probably weren't the target," said Obama spokesman Corey Ealons of the targeted advertising. He described the campaign's general voter registration drive — which has focused heavily on young voters, as well as African-Americans — as "a very extensive effort and that's been one of the highlights and major focuses of the campaign."
IN 2010, THEY DON'T HAVE A BLACK ON TOP OF THE TICKET, AND SO ARE RESORTING TO RACIST SMEARS.
IT'S A DELIBERATE AND COORDINATED STRATEGY:
Obama and Axelrod and Jarret and Rahm and Rangel know that key reason Obama won was because of a high black turnout and they need blacks to vote in order to have any shot at holding the House and even maybe the Senate.
This is why they have cynically decided to LIE and SMEAR the Tea Party as racist.
It's a lie.
It will not stand.
The Tea Party is basically devoted to LIMITED GOVERNMENT: race is absolutely NOT AN ISSUE for us.
- The ONLY people making an issue out if race are the DEMOCRATS.
- The Democrats under Obama are NOT a "post-racial" party; they are RACE-BAITING DEMAGOGUES.
Vote GOP in 2010.
