Political Empires | The GOP Continues Suppressing Minority Voters' Rights Amid the National Pandemic
Just when we think Republicans can't get any worse, the GOP manages to show its ignorance in the midst of a national pandemic.
This morning on Twitter, I came across an article that highlighted Republicans' fear of allowing mail-in ballots. You can digest the full nonsense here. In response to the pandemic, Americans have been forced to stay home, even during the primaries. In response, Republicans were asked to postpone the primaries, which was rejected.
To address the matter and concern, Democrats suggested mail-in votes to ensure a strong turnout. While they rejected stalling the election, they supported votes-by-mail, which would empower every voter during this time.
Turns out, Republicans refused such initiative. Why, you ask?
Because they will lose.
Let's read from the horses' mouths themselves: “[Mail-in votes] will be extremely devastating to Republicans and conservatives in Georgia,” Ralston, a Republican from Blue Ridge, said during an interview with FetchYourNews, a North Georgia news site. “Every registered voter is going to get one of these. … This will certainly drive up turnout.” (Source)
Imagine forcing voters to stay home because of the pandemic; and then preventing voters from exercising their right to vote by opposing mail-ins because they fear losing.
This is the current GOP, and I have nothing but pure fire to throw against them.
For a Party that professes to be "the Party that freed the slaves," they sure have no problem curtailing Black people's Constitutional rights right now!
How do we expect Black Americans to take the GOP seriously when they won't support #VotersChoice?
Back in California, it was nothing for me to vote by mail. I practiced this form of voting for years. I appreciated the option to send in my vote without standing in those long lines.
Now that the nation is under government lockdown, it seems only fitting that every American voter be afforded this same right. And it baffles me that in Georgia, this right is not given to citizens because the GOP fears losing.
In the article I mentioned above, they addressed how Trump shared the GOP's sentiment at the federal level: he stated, “The things they had in there were crazy. They had things, levels of voting that if you’d ever agreed to it, you’d never have a Republican elected in this country again,” Trump said Monday on “Fox & Friends.”
This is the same administration that boasts of "low unemployment for Black Americans" and the infamous, "What do you have to lose?"
Well, apparently, Black Americans have A LOT to lose by throwing any support to the current Republican Party.
First, the Party complains about voter identification.
Then the Party complains about voter fraud.
But when the Party engages in blatant voter suppression ... and during a PANDEMIC ... somehow this is acceptable behavior.
Hate Democrats all you want, Conservatives, but they presented a VIABLE SOLUTION in Georgia. They want mail-in ballots.
Is it because they know they can win? Certainly!
But for Republicans to REJECT certain voters out of fear of losing, this shows you how INEPT and INCOMPETENT that Party is.
All they had to do was evangelize in our Black communities. But they didn't. They aren't even confident in their conservatism to preach this message to various citizens ...
... citizens that embrace conservative beliefs!
Is it any wonder Black Americans find conservative POLITICS repressive, oppressive, and downright racist?
How do you blame the people for the way you treat them, Republicans? How do you preach, "We are the Party that set Black people free" while simultaneously REJECTING Black voters' choice to mail in their votes?
I'll tell you what. This political empire is dead! And I'm here to watch the entire building burn.
I thank God for the new movement, the Conscious Black Conservative movement. We seek to build new political empires that empower Black Americans -- and any Conscious America at that! -- who will do things Yah's way so we get His results.
As the current GOP continues holding onto their Old Guard, let us watch as their ship sinks deeper into the abyss. They should have never abandoned the voting bloc that made them relevant in the first place.
Without Black voters, you have no Party anymore, Republicans.
And now, in 2020, we will watch you crumble as a new political empire emerges to combat abject liberalism.
Beloved, Help Conscious Black Conservatives Take Our Empowering Message to Mainstream Black Audiences by Giving Just $25.
What would you give to see the Conscious Black Conservative message become mainstream in America? What would you give to see the faces of your empowering Black Conservatives on television? What would you give to hear more messages that break down the racial barriers between Black voters and Conservatives?
Hold that number in mind as I share this amazing journey we are about to take.
Over the last few months, I and other authentic Black Conservatives have used our voices to preach a message that empowers Black voters. You've watched as we taught social, political, and economic conservatism. You observed as we tore down the racial stereotypes pushed by mainstream conservative pundits. And you listened as we urged fellow Conservatives to adopt a new method for effective outreach.
Now that we have made significant strides in changing the conservative political landscape on behalf of Black voters (via social media), we are ready to take our message to mainstream Black audiences. We want to see our message openly discussed through a new television show focused on Conscious Black Conservatism. And our target network for broadcasting this show is the newly launched Black News Channel.
The mission of the Black News Channel is to:
And we are confident that such a network will fully embrace our idea.
But we need your help.
Over the next few months, we are launching an aggressive campaign to raise $25,000 to kickstart this venture. The funds we raise will be used to:
Our television series will specifically target Millennials, Generation Z, and Generation X. We will not use our newfound mainstream platform to shame Generation Black Boomers for their allegiance to the Democratic Party. We recognize what our ancestors and family members did to ensure our generation had the opportunities we experience today. We bless them, and we honor them for their fight.
But now a new generation is prepared to "bring home that check" by delivering a message of Conscious Black Conservatism to the masses. A new generation is here, one with a growing desire to see something more than Civil Rights Era politics.
This new breed is focused on creating social, political, and economic empires for the next 100 years.
And with your help and ongoing contributions, we will make this happen!
