They are a little late, but Black conservatives have just figured out there actually was a peculiar institution in America called slavery and to their credit they don’t much like it.
Because all the slave masters were liberal Democrats and their allies on the Congressional Black Caucus want to keep Blacks as slaves.
Did you know that Barack Obama has an agenda against Black Americans? It’s true! Thank God for the Black conservative to tell the rest of us what we’re too dumb to see for ourselves!
Sean Hannity invited some of his closest Negro friends over for “a special town hall meeting” where Hannity and a group of Black folks that think just like him (and when they don’t they keep it to themselves) sat around and sniveled about being the Rodney Dangerfield of politics and why, oh why don’t they get no respect?
Among Hannity’s Pet Negroes were Star Parker, Jesse Lee Peterson, Rev. CL Bryant, Bishop Council Nedd II, Crystal Wright, David Webb, Ron Christie, Karl Miller, Deneen Borelli and a bunch of other Special Black Friends I’ve never heard of.
Oh yeah. Uncle Ben Carson was there. When isn’t he there with Hannity? Does Hannity carry Carson around in his pocket or on a leash?
I miss that old-time religion of Black conservatism which looked down in disapproval on liberal White guilt. We have an entirely new pack of victim cards but it’s the Black conservatives shuffling from the bottom of the deck. With Hannity coaching them on these “Frederick Douglass Republicans” complain, gripe and cry–literally–about the White liberals making their lives hell as they suffer the rhetorical lash with Carson being their Mighty Mandingo warrior refusing to bend the knee or be broken by his Left-wing tormentors.
Pity the poor put-on Black conservative. They live such a hard knock life. I’d cry about it if I could only stop yawning. They just don’t get it. It’s not that every other Black person has been brainwashed to reject most conservative dogma. It’s more that Blacks have looked at the policies, practices and personalities advancing the Right’s agenda and rejected them as pretty scary stuff.
It’s a sad sight to watch a group of middle-class Blacks acting like whiny-ass kids and complaining how nobody likes them except Good White Folk like Sean Hannity. It’s embarrassing to see supposedly articulate, proud and respectable Negroes pile over each other pandering for Hannity’s approval. Oooh! Oooh! Call on me, Mr. Hannity. I think Obama sucks too!
The Sean Hannity whose softball interview “style” (he has no background in journalism) was on full display when Trayvon Martin’s killer, George Zimmerman told the Fox News talking head he had “no regrets” and the shooting of the unarmed teen was “God’s will.” The Sean Hannity who has all but appointed press spokesman for Zimmerman. The Sean Hannity who palled around with White supremacist and Neo-Nazi Hal Turner. The Sean Hannity who now declares “I am not a racist.” THAT Sean Hannity?
Where is the spine of these Negro conservatives who say Obama is “waging a war’ against Black Americans yet say nothing about the Republicans waging its own war to disenfranchise African-Americans voters. They can ding liberal Whites for trying to keep them in their place, but they get mighty quiet when anyone points out to them how race still matters, how so many of the Blacks they consider brainwashed by the Left catch most of the hell from the Right.
Even the few sensible views expressed by the Black conservatives is undermined by the presence of reverse-race hustlers like Peterson and Parker whose primary reason to exist is to kiss a lot of conservative White asses and dance a jig for their entertainment.
What ultimately makes Black conservatives such as those that gathered on Hannity’s program so utterly useless is they are so eager to reassure their patrons they will faithfully attack all things liberal even as they ignore prior bad acts of bigotry by conservatives. They whisper sweet nothings into the ears of White conservatives of tax cuts and opposing Obamacare while they say nothing about economic inequity, mass incarceration and the prison industrial complex, unemployment, substance abuse, voter disenfranchisement or any of the other ills peculiar to the Black community. Those issues don’t interest their patrons so they don’t interest Black conservatives either. They’ll talk about their faith and belief in God, apple pie and the flag, but they won’t ask the tough questions because they don’t want to unnerve and discomfort the Sean Hannitys of the world that give them a forum.
The cowardice of the Black conservatives who only gripe, bitch, moan and complain about White liberals while refusing to use their vantage point to call to account White conservatives only reinforces what was already clear. These are nothing but race hustlers of a different political stripe and they are useless to anyone but insincere idiots like Hannity who uses these content coloreds to claim, “See, I’m not a racist. I love Black people. As long as they are Black people who agree with me.”
Black conservatives will never receive the respect they feel they don’t get as long as they are content to serve as beards to the White Right desperate to hide their own troubled racial past while they try to create Carson into the Anti-Obama. Good luck with that. Real “Frederick Douglass Republicans” aren’t afraid to speak the truth to power even when its the powerful who looked upon them with favor.
These aren’t speakers of truth. These are just well-dressed parrots repeating what they have already heard.
