They actually tossed some black dude out of CPAC because he posed some tough questions to the GOP faithful?
That is not cool.
"In this video from CPAC, a black man seems like he sincerely interested in helping find a way for conservatives to appeal to other African Americans, but then he suddenly gets screamed on by a white guy who insists that "race doesn't matter." Which in short, summarizes why the Republicans continually lose the vote of any group that doesn't have white skin. Here is a partial transcript:
Black guy: "Recruit us."The white guy continues to scream at the black guy, and doesn't get asked to leave. The black guy gets asked to leave. There's a shocker.
White guy: "So?"
Black guy: "What's wrong with the message?"
White guy: "Why didn't you go out and look?"
Black guy: "What's wrong with the message? How many?" (Holding up five fingers on one hand)
White guy: "I don't count?!?!"
Black guy: "It matters."
White guy: "I don't ask people what their . . ?"
Black guy: "It matters because."
White guy: ((unintelligible))
Black guy: "I do. Cause race matters."
White guy: "No it doesn't!!! You're an American! You're not a black person! You're an American! I didn't go in and count all the Jews?"
Then, perhaps realizing what a racist ass he has revealed himself to be, the white guy accuses the black guy of trying to divide the country by acknowledging that he is, in fact, a black guy in a failed effort to hide the fact that he's a racist.
Near the end of the video, the man who was asked to leave goes on to say:
"I'm trying to understand how come there's no black people here. I'm trying to figure out why the outreach of the GOP and especially CPAC is not working with black citizens and I have yet to find an answer, only I get, all I've gotten is abrasive attitudes and people yelling because I guess I ask the tough question, just ask the simple question, where's the inclusion? Where are the black people? I don't know why that is so offensive?"Perhaps this man hasn't yet caught on that the Republican Party is a broken flop. Republicans telling white Republicans that race no longer matters only works on white Republicans, and they exclude everyone who isn't white and wealthy.
Here's another shocker: The bald screaming white guy is none other than Jeff Dunetz, yidwithlid. A full blown Breitbart ambushing hack."
"Bald screaming white guy". That's a perfect backdrop for the
The Bible. Folks are saying that the Devil resembles a certain tall skinny guy with a Muslim name. (No wonder Jay-Z likes him so much. I kid, I kid.) Anyway, some, like my twitter fam Alinda, would argue that this is just a "variation of the they all look alike" meme. Others would argue that dude really does like his Oness, and that the History Channel, like Lucy, has some splaining to do. (Why does the black man have to play the devil?) The wingnuts, of course, all see this as some sort of a sign. I can already hear the sermons come Sunday morning:
"My brothers and sisters, just as we have always suspected, that Obama fellow is the devil. Sometimes the Lord works in mysterious ways. He chose the History Channel to reveal this all to us."
"Creators of the History channel series called the comparison off base.
“This is utter nonsense,” HISTORY channel producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett said. “The actor who played Satan, Mehdi Ouazanni, is a highly acclaimed Moroccan actor. He has previously played parts in several Biblical epics — including Satanic characters long before Barack Obama was elected as our president.”
Too late Mr. Burnett, you have already opened that door, and all hell is breaking loose (pun intended) on social media.
"Right-wing commentator and radio-host Glenn Beck tweeted: "Anyone else think the Devil in #TheBible Sunday on History Channel looks exactly like That Guy?"
Glenn, he might look like him, but I suspect that you are a lot closer to the Devil than"That Guy".
