Yesterday, the National Policy Institute a fringe White Nationalist group released a press release about their upcoming press conference to be held at the National Press Club in September—the title was startling: The Majority Strategy: Why the GOP Must Win White America for Victory in 2012. Wait, what? Yup, these Rethuglicans have decided to abandon their “failed outreach to minority programs” and concentrate on who they think matters…white people. I must have missed the speed bump that was the Rethuglican outreach to minorities…maybe my invite into their ranks got lost in the mail.
I’ve said it for years that the Rethugs have never cared about benefiting any other group in this country except for wealthy white people…but still, I was shocked to see their “new” agenda right there in black and white on my computer screen. Their winning strategy you wonder? “Expand their white base” in order to win the white house in 2012. Is there something I’m missing? Is Jim Crow back in effect? Are Blacks, Latinos, Asians, and Native Americans not allowed to vote in the upcoming election? Or will the Rethugs only be counting 3/5ths of their vote?
Do you remember the site in Chicago during President Obama’s election night speech? Do you remember what the sea of people looked like? It was the purest representation of America I have ever seen. There were young and old, Black and White, American flags and rainbow flags…it was America! .
It is this image of a diverse America that failed to resonate with the Republican Party
What does it say about the GOP when instead of embracing and finding REAL (Michael Steele anyone?) ways to invest in the ever expanding diversity of its citizenry that they want to use neo-white supremacy tactics to win in 2012? Which is what makes the supposed “outcry” from the likes of Rep. Maxine Waters and other respected “thought leaders” like Cornell West speaking ill of the President…INFURIATING!
Am I saying that this Administration is perfect? Absolutely not! But what I am saying is that instead of wasting time tearing the President down we may want to spend time investigating what the Republican version of America would look like if they win. You see the CBC and others can waste their hot air and take up time on CNN…but the reality is this—the Republican America doesn’t have them in it! They don’t care enough about the minorities in this country…racial, sexual orientation, gender or otherwise. In their America we don’t exist!
Why was their no hoopla created over their “Big, Fat, White Strategy” session? Why wasn’t Cornell West on the Tavis Smiley show alerting his followers to that fact that the Republicans don’t care enough about Blacks to address their issues— such as the highest unemployment rate that African Americans have faced since the Great Depression? Nope, instead they want to go on a poverty tour to chide the President. Why not the Republicans?
There are 14 months until the 2012 election and the Rethugs have made it clear that their not only far right in their politics but their all white in their ideology as well! If the Rehtugs get their way America will look more like Leave it to Beaver 2.0 than Chicago circa election night 2009— and I don’t know about you but the only thing that I liked about the 1950’s were the clothes… If we as Black Americans want to unite behind an agenda that would help all struggling Americans— we would do best to ensure that our President gets the support he needs and the Rethugs don’t get to turn the clock back!
