Early this morning ...
I woke to a new message on Facebook. A young Republican -- John, a White male -- in Virginia expressed his thanks for the content Sonnie and I have pushed into the conservative space.
Recently, he attended a local GOP meeting in Virginia, and expressed the need to reach more minorities in their area.
As expected, the older Republicans did not receive his suggestions. But the younger ones did.
In fact, he wrote, "I've brought up that the GOP needs to create a better narrative and message that actually resonates with the minority communities and that bashing black lives matter while embracing blue lives matter isn't working. The GOP older Republicans weren't as receptive of that message than the younger ones. Actually the younger Republicans actually agreed wholeheartedly with what I had to say."
He also added: "Myself and the younger Republicans are in talks of actually trying to engage these communities in order to bring about real change to empower these communities."
Music to my ears!
Young Beloved Conservatives get it!
They see exactly what's wrong with the Republican Party. They want to see change because it's needed right now.
But there's more to this story.
Not only do Black communities suffering from progressivism need political options, but Conservatives today need allies. We won't win ANYTHING unless we bridge this gap and make conservatism attractive to voters.
Today, more Black Americans -- especially Millennials and younger -- are increasingly bothered by overregulations, over-policing, heavy taxation, and constant attacks on the new Black Wall Streets.
On our fundraising page for the Conscious Conservative Movement, I shared the following message: "Recently reported, President Biden's economic plan will surely affect the rising wealth within Black Communities, who want to improve their own areas absent government interference. According to Axios, 'Biden is going to attempt to chart an economic policy that's visibly to the left of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. If he succeeds, it's going to show up not only in taxes and spending, but also in regulation' (Source).
This is just an example of the economic oppression Biden's administration seeks to push on Black communities (among others).
Just this morning in Twitter Class, we learned about a New Jersey law, which made it illegal for people to ride bikes without a license!
Yes, you read that correctly. They need a LICENSE to ride a bicycle.
In a viral video, we watched 5-6 patrol officers detain a young Black male for riding his bike "unregistered." While he was eventually released, the officers made it clear they were "doing what was in the best interests of the young men."
Naturally, the social justice warrior crowd were appalled by it. They, of course, see the world in black and white. In other words, they will push the narrative that white police officers are harassing these youths and criminalizing them for petty nonsense.
But those of us within the Conscious Conservative Movement know EXACTLY what's going on. This isn't a simple case of racist policing.
These are progressive POLICIES being enforced by a progressive POLICE force against minority communities.
And as I told one Progressive Blue Checker this morning:
Naturally, the Progressives following Twitter Class were offended, because I attacked their Beloved White Supremacy.
They wanted to say this was an example of Conservatives' "Law and Order" movement to harass Black folks.
But I had to remind these people how the system works:
The cycle continues for years and years, never being checked because Conservatism does not present itself as a competing force in these areas.
For this reason, I responded with the follow-up tweet:
In this hour, young Conservatives and young Black voters see the writing on the wall.
Young Black men are tired of being harassed by the state via the police.
This same demographic is working aggressively to right the wrongs of the previous generation, including starting families, marrying the women they impregnate, raising their children, building new wealth, and tapping into the new emerging economies.
They are ready for another political option that will protect their growing wealth; and they hate the idea that only Progressivism shows up for their vote.
So, in this next round, we are empowering younger Republicans to evangelize Conscious Conservatism. And as we do this, we are partnering with other Beloveds (like Scott Pressler) who are focused on running candidates who will serve the communities' best interests.
There's more: Starting tomorrow inside the Conscious Conservative Media Network, I am hosting weekly training sessions for individuals who want to set up branches of the Movement in their local areas.
With just 2-3 people, you can set up shop where you discuss the Movement and Conscious Conservatism with local communities. This is our aggressive evangelism for this next round.
As communities become more acquainted with the work (because of Beloveds like you), we all will come together during our annual events (The Solutionary Summit and The Great Debate) to receive more empowerment.
We are mobilizing, Beloveds, because now's the time. And I want to encourage you to invest wisely in the works that are making the most impact.
If we continue doing things God's way this next round, we will win more hearts to Conscious Conservatism.
If Today's Lesson Made You Think Differently About Mobilizing This Next Round ...
... then be a blessing to this platform as we continue the work of ministry to help single mothers in Atlanta, GA.
Last round, the Conscious Conservative Movement focused on effective outreach to Black male voters. The results: an increase in voter turnout for Trump, a Republican candidate.
This round, we are doubling our efforts to reach Black men AND Black women, the latter who are more concerned with social issues and educational opportunities for their children.
With your donations, we can provide FREE training to single Black mothers whose sons are enrolled in King Randall's program, The X for Boys.
You can learn more about our partnership and outreach here.
