The battle for the black bimbo Lawn Jockey position is heating up at Faux News!
Fox & Friends hosts Steve Doocy and Anna Kooiman asked Wright on Monday if there was a Republican candidate who could take away a significant number of black votes from Democrats.
“It’s Donald Trump!” Wright exclaimed. “Because Donald Trump is the only person bothering to talk to black people and ask for their vote.”
Wright noted that Trump had a black spokesperson and had promised to help the black community find jobs by deporting undocumented immigrants.
According to Wright, many blacks supported Democrats because the candidates were essentially “buying” their votes.
“I think it’s so sad when it comes to the black vote,” she lamented. “Blacks have shown a slavish support for the Democrat [SIC] Party for over 50 years.”
“And part of me wonders if the Republican Party should even bother asking for the black vote,” Wright added, “because black Americans seem to like being political dummies. We’re the only race that has voted lock, stock and barrel for the same party for over 50 years.”
The blogger argued that Hillary Clinton was “owning the black vote.”
“And I think she is owning it because, ‘Oh, she was married to the first black president,’” Wright said. “That’s all Democrats have to do. It’s a sad state of affairs for blacks when all they have to do is pander and insult black Americans decade in and decade out, and we keep coming back for more misery.””
“A black candidate like Carson, Herman Cain, you can just kiss the black vote goodbye,” she insisted. “Because automatically, blacks are going to call you an Uncle Tom.”
“It’s that pathetic? Can’t we do better?”
For those of you who may be too young to remember an animated series on the “Rocky and Bullwinkle Show” show called ” Dudley Do-Right of the Mounties“, the principal villain in the show was “Snidely Whiplash” best known for tying innocent vixen Nell to the railroad tracks to be run over.
Never ones to stray from character, or be particularly inventive, we have the black Snidely – Peter Kirsanow, who was the right’s Lawn Jockey on the “U.S. Commission on Civil Rights” to support the racist groups under the Bushit Administration. So no surprise the black Snidely is quoting white supremacists, such a Jonah Goldberg of the racist infested National Review.
When Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Wednesday suggested that black college students should choose a “less-advanced” or “slower-track” institution, he referenced a brief filed by lawyers Gail Heriot and Peter Kirsanow, two opponents of affirmative action who say that the policy discourages black students from studying science and engineering.
It turns out that Kirsanow, who is black, is also not a fan of minority students protesting institutionalized racism, as he noted while discussing the Fisher case Monday on a panel at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.
Responding to an audience question about the Black Lives Matter movement and students “browbeating” for reforms on college campuses, he questioned the existence of institutionalized racism in education and dismissed the Black Lives Matter protesters as “precious little flowers.”
“They are these precious little flowers that believe they’ve been discriminated against, 50 years after passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act,” he said. “It is incredible what we’re countenancing here.”
Calling institutionalized racism “a feeling,” he later added: “I keep hearing about white privilege. The most privileged students in schools in 2015 America are Hispanic and black students by far.”
Both Heriot and Kirsanow serve on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and were appointed by President George W. Bush.
During the court’s oral arguments on Fisher vs. University of Texas at Austin, an affirmative action case in which the plaintiff, Abigail Fisher, claims she was rejectedfrom the University of Texas at Austin in part because she is white, Scalia suggested that black students should not receive preference because they fare poorly at elite schools. He drew from several briefs filed in favor of Fisher and arguing against affirmative action, including Heriot and Kirsanow’s brief, which cites data to claim that fewer black students pursue science and engineering fields when admitted through racial preferences, and that black students in these fields do not come from prestigious research universities.
“One of the briefs pointed out that most of the black scientists in this country don’t come from schools like the University of Texas,” Scalia said. “They come from lesser schools where they do not feel that they’re being pushed ahead in classes that are too fast for them.”
Scalia then argued that because of that, schools like the University of Texas “ought to have fewer” black students.
“I don’t think it stands to reason that it’s a good thing for the University of Texas to admit as many blacks as possible,” he said.
On the panel, Kirsanow also discussed the “mismatch” theory, proposed by UCLA law professor Richard Sander, whose brief Scalia also cited on Wednesday. It claims that minority students admitted to elite universities under affirmative action find classes too rigorous and eventually have to drop out. That theory has been widely debunked.
Further, while it is true that the majority of Black graduates in the STEM curricula graduate from HBCU’s – the majority of those gradates who do matriculate to the Masters and Phd levels from non-HBCUs, and a portion finish their PHd’s at elite universities. Unfortunately there are few African-American STEM graduates.
Another Lawn Jockey of the Month award for Snidely…
Rev Mack Daddy Manning of the ATLAH “church” is at it again. Once a regular on the black conservative Lawn Jockey Circuit, he has proven to be too much of a nutcase to even make the Faux News channel…
A notorious New York pastor addressed “Love not Hate” protesters outside his church by shouting racist and anti-gay slurs.
The “Love not Hate” rally outside of Pastor James David Manning’s Atlah Worldwide Church on Monday was organized by the group Harlem Against Violence, Homophobia, and Transphobia to protest the church for demonizing LGBT people. The demonstration drew more than 100 people, according to DNAinfo, including New York state Assemblyman Keith Wright.
Video of the event posted by blogger Joe My God shows Pastor Manning repeatedly singing, “Oh, f*ggots, please come out tonight.”
“Where are all the n*gger f*ggots?” Manning yells. “Where are the n*ggers? Why are ya’ll white?”
The pastor eventually spots a black protester, and begins yelling about a “n*gger lesbo.”
“Hey, you lesbo, come over here,” he shouts repeatedly.
Pastor Manning — who has admitted to having been tempted by the gay “lifestyle” — gained international notoriety after claiming in a video that Starbucks baristas were secretly adding semen to customers’ lattes as part of a gay plot. His church in Harlem frequently displays signs with anti-gay messages, including calling for the stoning of LGBT people.
“The messages displayed by the ATLAH Church are not reflective of this community, but are grossly offensive hate speech that have no place in the streets of Harlem,” Assemblyman Wright said in a statement. “Today, humankind finds itself surrounded by the tragedies of war. In upper Manhattan and abroad, we are crippled by problems of inequality. Record-high debt is ensconcing countries, communities, families and individuals. There is no time or attention left to spend spreading a message of bigotry. Today, the truest members of the Harlem community are speaking up and we reject this display of hatred by ATLAH Church.”
The white right’s former lawn jockey in chief whimpers that they have found a new Lawn Ornament…
Earlier this fall, Herman Cain had some advice for GOP frontrunners Donald Trump and Ben Carson. “Have a political SWAT team ready, because they are going to try and destroy you in ways you don’t expect,” Cain said in an interview after a Donald Trump rally. “I knew I was going to be attacked [in 2012]. I knew I was going to be criticized. But I did not anticipate I was going to be attacked with vicious, phony lies, back to back to back to back.”
Now, with Carson engulfed in a media firestorm over the details of his own biography, Cain said he saw it coming all along because the same thing happened to him.
Four years ago to the day, on November 10, 2011, it was Cain, not Carson, who led the national polls in the GOP primary. Like Carson, Cain had no political experience, but had rocketed to the front of pack of political veterans on the strength of an inspiring life story and a record of success in the private sector. But just as Cain rose to the top of the polls, Politico ran a story that two women had accused Cain of sexually harassing them while he was the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, a charge Cain denies to this day.
On November 11, 2011, Cain fell to second place in the polls against Mitt Romney. Four days later, he had tumbled to third behind both Romney and Newt Gingrich, as more accusations surfaced against Cain and the GOP field marched on.
“I still get pissed off about this stuff and I’ll tell you why,” he said. “Politico ran over 700 re-runs and recycled stories about accusations against me, 700, and there wasn’t any new news. They didn’t try to dig and get the facts.”
Speaking about their Carson coverage, Cain called Politico “sneaky” and “dirty” for writing that Carson had admitted to “fabricating” a story in his book Gifted Hands, in which Carson said he had been offered a scholarship to West Point. The Carson campaign said that he had never applied to West Point, but called the story “a flat out lie.” Politico later changed the story’s headline and added an editor’s note with more details from the Carson camp.
“Clearly Ben Carson did not lie,” Cain said. “Politico lied because they said he fabricated a story, when in fact, they fabricated a headline. At this point I think that Ben is winning this round.”
But reporters have continued to repeat Politico’s original report and go on to question Carson’s accuracy on a number of details in Gifted Hands. Cain says that Carson has handled the controversies well, but that there is a larger dynamic at play in Washington journalism and politics.
“Ben Carson is not only a conservative, he is a conservative who happens to be black. There is only one group of people that liberals hate worse than conservatives, and that’s conservatives who happen to be black,” Cain said. “The reason for that is real simple. They resent conservatives who happen to be black for leaving the Democrat plantation. And you can quote me on that.”
Cain accused the media, many of whom he said are “liberal vultures,” of trying to destroy Carson — and predicted that Sen. Marco Rubio will be next.
But he reserved his strongest criticism for Politico alone. “Too many people believe they are a credible news source when they are not,” he said. “As a friend of mine told me, “If Politico says that your mother loves you, duck, because she might shooting at you instead.”
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.

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.

The most damaging Lawn Jockey?
I now understand why Uncle Ben had to retire from the Hospital…Drug use.
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.
