Isn't this what Republicans have been doing with white people for years.
That is why Romney had slogans like "Take our country back" and "born in America" on his campaign signs.
That is what Lee Atwater and Roger Ailes did in nearly every campaign they ran.
That is what Willie Horton was all about.
That is what the birther conspiracy is all about.
That is why people were told Obama was a muslim or an Arab.
That is why Jesse Helms ran ads saying "You needed you job, but they gave it to a minority" in his campaign ads.
You are right, but you are talking about the wrong party.
You are correct. The Lee Atwater/Willie Horton thing was to get votes by scaring folks. I was basically starting the conversation about victims. This with the Dems is their whole voting base. The Dems are made up of many groups, all who get reminded "every" election just how Pubs will put them back in chains or some such nonsense.
No clean hands in politics, never said that, just that the Pubs are not the devil as Dems portray them. They need all the different groups to believe it though.
The party of Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy need women to beleive that Pubs have a war on women.....and they get applauded. The party of David Duke and Robert Byrd need you to beleive that Pubs want blacks to go back on the plantation.
It is politics, dirty politics and both sides try to manipulate. All I was doing was mentioning to a former marine that he has the power to go beyond the petty politics, especially since for 60 years, the Dems talk a big game, but in the end accomplish very little for the black community.
