Black Conservatives and Racist Myths of the Right

Those familiar with my site know about my “Lawn Jockey Award’ – given to the worst Uncle Tom moment by a black conservative of the month/day/year. To be honest I borrowed the idea from another blogger, “Field Negro”, and if you haven’t been there – I suggest you visit. His blog is one of the very, very best on the AfroWeb.

This one is by  – suggest you keep an eye on his stuff over at Salon.

Ben Carson’s destructive lies: 4 racist assumptions endorsed & magnified by Black conservatives

Through the first few months of campaign season, one thing has become indisputably clear: The Republican Party is the United States’ largest white identity organization, and openly uses white racial resentment — along with old fashioned racism — to win the support of white voters.

To wit: The Republican Party’s leading 2016 presidential candidates include open racists and nativists such as Donald Trump, as well as “dog whistle” racists such as Jeb Bush, who channel Ronald Reagan by way of “Southern Strategy”-inspired narratives about “welfare queens” and lazy blacks who want “free stuff” from white people.

And then, of course, there is the curious case of Ben Carson, who recently said that black people who support the Democrats are essentially stupid, unsophisticated, hyper-emotional, irrational, and incapable of thinking for themselves. In Carson’s delusional alternate reality, Republicans do not “see race,” and, unlike the Democrats, are the real advocates for racial justice and positive change along the color line in the United States.

Ben Carson is not alone in his twisted fantasy land. He is joined by other black conservatives — a select group of racial mercenaries who are routinely trotted out on Fox News and elsewhere — who, to great approval from white conservatives, also repeat the same anti-black propaganda.

The white racist fantasies given credence by black conservatives consist of several repeated themes.

1) Black people are on a Democratic or Liberal “Plantation”

This twisted interpretation of the political agency and intelligence of black Americans is immensely popular on the White Right. The “Democratic Plantation” lie is rooted in a white supremacist fantasy and “Gone with the Wind”-style fairy tale of happy black slaves singing, dancing, having sex, and being protected by benevolent white masters. This racist fiction ignores how black Americans self-manumitted, fought in the Civil War to free themselves, remade democracy with Reconstruction, and then made the reasoned choice to switch over to the Democratic Party en masse because of the policies of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and then later those of the Johnson and Kennedy administrations.

In reality, the slave “plantation” was a charnel and rape house. It quite literally used the bodies of millions of black people as fuel for (white) American and European empire.

There is a special hostility in the United States towards black Americans and their history of struggle, survival, and freedom. No one on mainstream cable news, among the commentariat, or in the class of political elites would dare to suggest that Jews who support the Democratic Party are in a type of “gas chamber” or “death camp.” Such an egregious insult can only be leveled with impunity at African-Americans.

2) Black people are extremely emotional and are unable to make intelligent political decisions 

This white supremacist fantasy reflects centuries-old racist beliefs that white people are supremely rational and that people of color—blacks in particular—are impulsive, unintelligent, libidinous, and impulsive.

On a range of public policy issues, black Americans have shown a remarkable amount of foresight and wisdom, being years or decades ahead of white public opinion on issues such as ending the Iraq War, the failures of George W. Bush’s leadership and administration and access to healthcare, among other issues. Social scientists have also detailed how African-Americans use complex decision making and other heuristics to factor in the realities of life in a racist society, the importance of the Black Freedom Struggle, and individual self-advancement. Some scholars of American politics even go so far as to suggest that black people may be more sophisticated in their political behavior than whites because of the former’s need to more carefully discern power dynamics and be sensitive to political partisanship and ideology.

Read the rest here. covering 3) Black Americans vote Democrat because they want “free things” and 4) Black Americans are low-information voters who are ill-informed…

The most damaging Lawn Jockey?

Trump Would Hire Carson for His Administration!

Yup – The Donald has said it! He has in mind a place for Ben Carson in his Administration…

Trump: Would ‘Absolutely’ Hire Carson For My Administration

GOP frontrunner Donald Trump said Friday he’d “absolutely” hire another top-tier candidate, Ben Carson, to be part of his administration, but he didn’t say in what position the retired neurosurgeon, who is in second place behind him in the polls, would end up.

“I would love to have that,” he told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show, pointing out that he doesn’t know if Carson would be a tough negotiator because he “would say it’s not his wheelhouse.”

But in “certain elements of administration,” Carson would be “very good,” Trump said.

He described Carson as being “a nice man” with whom he has a “good relationship.”

“I’m sure he’ll hit me,” said Trump. “So far, we’ve had a good relationship.”

Also, he said he believes Carson is qualified to be the president, because “if he’s running and if he wins, he’s qualified; that’s the way the system works,” but Carson or anyone else will not “be able to do the job I’m going to do.”

The polling has been “amazing” for both men, Trump said, and when you add the numbers together, “in some cases you’re up to 55 to 60 percent.”

Yep, Uncle Ben will look downright spiffy!

Or perhaps a leadership position…

White Supremacists Invite Black Conservative to Their Convention

Sean Hannity’s favorite Lawn Jockey, Jesse Lee Peterson to join white supremacist rally…because “he hates black people as much as we do”.

Black Conservative Jesse Lee Peterson Invited to White Supremacists Convention

Black conservative the Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson has been invited to be a speaker at the National White Alliance (NWA)’s annual convention.

Brian Blank, a spokesperson for the NWA, said Peterson was welcome at the conference, even though he was black.

“Well, he can’t help the color he was born, but he is one of the few good ones,” said Blank. “And he hates Blacks just as much as we do.”

Peterson, a frequent guest on FOX News, bills himself as a Black conservative and has been very critical of the African-American community. He criticized the Black residents of New Orleans who failed to evacuate during Hurricane Katrina for being “lazy and immoral.” He also thanked God for slavery, claiming that without it Black Americans would have never found Jesus.

Peterson has also made anti-women comments. He said women are not emotionally suited to hold public office.

“Jesse knows his place and the place of the white man,” Blank said. “If we had 100 more coloreds like him, my organization would go out of business.”

Rev Mack Daddy is Back!

Rev James Manning, AKA Rev Mack Daddy is back at it again. This time due to demonstrations at his family “Church”, ATLAH. He calls himself a “Dr.” The Revered Doctor’s Phd was awarded to himself by himself, though his own “church” – not any accredited College or University, or even a Seminary. He is a former favorite of Sean Hannity’s Lawn Ornament Show…

Pastor Has Epic Freakout When He’s Protested For His Hate

Harlem hate pastor James Manning is back again — this time throwing an epic tantrum on the steps of his religious institution.

On Tuesday, the leader of ATLAH World Missionary Church reportedly interrupted a candlelight vigil put together by Harlem Against Violence, Homophobia, And Transphobia to spew some pretty horrific anti-queer sentiment. According to the Facebook event page, the group organized the vigil after deciding they “can’t sit back and let incitements to violence go unanswered.”

Manning’s speech escalates as the video goes on, spewing anti-LGBT rhetoric and hate in the face of peaceful protestors

“You’re Jesus haters. You are racist as well,” Manning says in the above video. “C’mon you faggots! All you lesbos! All you perverted people! All you dung eaters! Come over here? Do you think your chants are going to stop me? You can no more stop me than you can stop the power of the blood of Jesus. I declare the blood of Jesus against you faggots, you lesbos, you perverts, you sick-minded people. You are sick! You are demon possessed! Stop the demons now! Stop the demons now!”

Manning’s church, which is located in New York’s Harlem neighborhood, first made headlines in February 2014 when he posted a sign in front of his church reading, “Obama has released the homo demons on the black man. Look out black woman. A white homo may take your man.”

The sign has changed a number of times since to display equally offensive statements, including “Jesus would stone homos” and “Harlem is a sodomite free zone. Stop sodomizing our children in schools across America.”

Manning has also made some pretty bizarrely offensive public statements, including that Starbucks uses “sodomites’ semen” in their lattes. 

Our favorite line from this most recent outburst? Apparently not only are we “homos” or something “wretched, unbelievable, despicable, disgrace to humanity,” but also our “breath stinks of another man’s butthole!”

We’re sure Jesus would’ve loved that one.

Not sure what the Rev is all worked up over. After all the Rev spent 3 years in prison, by his own admission. According to Ben Carson – that would make Rev Mack Daddy as “sodomite” and “homo” hisself!

Uncle Ben on Crack! Republicans and Race

I now understand why Uncle Ben had to retire from the Hospital…Drug use.

Ben Carson’s breathtaking delusion: GOP has “done a far superior job than Democrats of getting over racism”

Ben Carson hopes to distract from the hubbub his recent suggestions for a religious test for office have caused by spouting off more controversial opinions. This time, the retired neurosurgeon is arguing that “Republicans have done a far superior job of getting over racism” than Democrats.

Noting the Grand Ole Party’s storied history of fighting for the abolition of slavery during a press conference held at a plaque in Jackson, Michigan, commemorating the birthplace of the Republican Party in 1854, Carson claimed that the “significance of the Republican Party is something that is lost on many.”

“It was founded as an anti-slavery party, an abolitionist party. The Republican Party worked very, very hard to abolish slavery and after it was abolished to try to gain rights for the freedman including the right to bear arms,” he noted.

Signing the praises of modern-day conservatives, Carson argued the GOP was still better on the issue of race than Democrats: “I think the Republicans have done a far superior job of getting over racism.”

“I find black Republicans are treated extremely well in the Republican Party. In fact, I don’t hear much about being a black Republican,” Carson concluded. The one-time Democrat argued his former party is not welcoming to African-Americans like himself.

“If you’re black and you don’t think a certain way as far as they are concerned, you’re an Uncle Tom, you’re a sellout, you’re a traitor, you hate yourself, you hate your race” he said.

“When you look at the philosophies of the two parties now, what I have noticed as a black Republican is that Republicans tend to look more at the character of people. And Democrats tend to look more at the color of their skin,” Carson insisted.

But when an African-American reporter immediately asked Carson how his seemingly incongruent recent comments on a Muslim-American as President jived with his sentiments on race, the neurosurgeon denied any inconsistency and blasted what he called “PC culture”:

We have an American culture and an American constitution, and anybody who’s going to occupy the White House should be living in a pattern that is consistent with our constitution and with our culture .. There is something that is known as the American way, the American dream. Why in the world would we want to give away our principles and values for the sake of political correctness? That would be the biggest mistake we could ever make.

Uncle Ben Carson – “Muslims Unconstitutional”

Beginning to believe that if any of Uncle Ben’s patients survived…

It must have been because of the nurses holding his hand during an operation.

Thomas Jefferson and James Madison first proposed the Virginia Statute on Religious Freedom (the frame and basis of the later First Amendment to the Constitution) in 1779, the preamble began, “Well aware that Almighty God hath created the mind free.” Patrick Henry and other devout Christians attempted to substitute the words “Jesus Christ” for “Almighty God” in this opening passage and were overwhelmingly voted down. This vote was interpreted by Jefferson to mean that Virginia’s representatives wanted the law “to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and Mahomedan, the Hindoo, and Infidel of every denomination.” “Mahomedan” being the slightly less than politically correct term for the followers of Islam at the time.

The simple fact is, there is no stipulation for religious belief in the Constitution – and nothing which bars anyone of any religion from holding office.

Indeed for his secular view, Thomas Jefferson was accused of being a Muslim. Islamic persecution in America started far before we became a country, and the first Muslims in America were some of the slaves brought to America from Africa. According to some historians, the faith of those slaves has a direct connection to the development of the “Black Muslim, NOI” sect in America started by Wallace D. Fard Muhammad, and led to prominence by Elijah Muhammad.

Ben Carson Would Not Support A Muslim Running For President

“I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation.”

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said that he would not support a Muslim running for president of the United States.

On NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, host Chuck Todd asked Carson whether a president’s faith should matter. The question of how the Republican presidential candidates approach Islam has arisen since businessman Donald Trump was asked Thursday when the country could “get rid of” Muslims.

Trump said he would be “looking at a lot of things,” in response, and did not correct the suggestion that President Barack Obama is a Muslim and “not even an American.”

Carson, who placed third in the CNN/ORC poll of the Republican presidential field released Sunday, said a president’s faith would matter to him depending on what that faith is.

“If it’s inconsistent with the values and principles of America, then of course it should matter,” he said. “If it fits within the realm of America and is consistent with the Constitution, I have no problem.” 

He said that Islam, as a religion, is incompatible with the Constitution.

“I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that,” he said.

Self Proclaimed Conservative Black Kid Goes Anti-Ahmed

This one is just sad. A 13 year old black kid goes on the Internet to berate President Obama for inviting the Muslim kid who was arrested in Texas for building an electronic clock…

I have known kids who wanted to grow up to be great scientists, or doctors, or lawyers…This indeed is the first one I’ve ever seen planning to grow up to be a Lawn Jockey.

Ga. teen blasts White House invite of Ahmed Mohamed

A Georgia teen took to YouTube this week to criticize the White House for its invitation to a Texas teen who has been in the spotlight for an invention that got him suspended.

Ahmed Mohamed, the Muslim teen from Texas who was suspended earlier this week because a teacher thought his homemade clock was a bomb, will not be returning to the school that suspended him.

The case sparked claims of racial profiling and outrage across the country, with some influential people — including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and President Obama, who invited him to the White House — showing Ahmed, 14, support.

That invite is drawing sharp criticism from a 13-year-old boy in Georgia. CJ Pearson has never been a fan of the president. In this case, he sees a double standard.

CJ is from the Augusta area, and his name was trending on Facebook overnight for his latest YouTube video.

“When cops are gunned down, you don’t invite them to the White House. You never did. But when a Muslim builds a clock, come on by. What is this world you’re living in?” he said in the video.

CJ goes on to say the invitation to Ahmed fits the president’s agenda.

By Friday morning, the video, posted Wednesday, had been viewed more than 330,000 times.

It’s the latest in a series of videos from CJ, who labeled himself a conservative at the age of 8.  His website claims a Facebook base of more than 29,000 followers and a viewership of more than 2 million on his YouTube channel. His Facebook page shows more than 52,000 people like the page.

According to the Washington Post, CJ is the national chairman of Teens for Ted, a national group backing Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz for president.

For his part, Ahmed said he will accept the president’s invitation, which was posted on Twitter.  The president called his homemade clock “cool” and asked the teen to bring it to the White House.

Police in Irving, Texas, do not plan to pursue criminal charges against Ahmed.
