A New York Times Company newspaper, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune (SHT), has struck again and published a second a hit piece on Frances Rice, this time with her grassroots organization, the National Black Republican Association (NBRA) also in the crosshairs. ….
“As one pundit said: "Dogs don't bark at parked cars". In this most recent assault on me by the SHT, the reporters had the temerity to demonstrate that the real motivation for trying to denigrate me and the NBRA is a fear that our efforts will "foil the nomination of the first black presidential candidate, Barack Obama…" By their fawning coverage of Obama, the liberal press is functioning as a de facto 527 organization for Obama.”SHT, (needs an I there somewhere): “Not only is she black, she is also a Republican, a member of a party to which fewer than 10 percent of black voters in Florida belong.”
Given that most people don’t tend to actually join the parties that they support, it sounds like they are not doing too badly.
SHT; “Her messages have brought condemnation from Democrats. But they have also sparked a backlash among many Republicans.”
This is hardly a surprise Democrats regard anything short of paying homage on bended knee to their candidate as controversial at least, and probably racially motivated. Some of the weaker Republicans are so cowed by PC that they are afraid of their own shadows. One Francis Rice is worth twenty of them, our side have to take the Democrats on.
“When hearing that the chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, Jim Greer, had expressed disappointment in her magazine, The Black Republican, which Greer had secured party money to publish, Rice dismissed it with a wave of her hand.Lets face it, the KKK were formed as the military wing of the southern Democrats, Dixiecrats still are the party of George Wallace.
The magazine featured a picture of Ku Klux Klan members burning a cross, with the caption "Every person in this photograph was a Democrat.”
Rice shows no intention of backing down. Her personal history of growing up in poverty under segregation is her fuel.These statements demonstrate the value of this organization, it can attack in areas that the remainder of the party cannot without accusations of racism, and in a campaign where the candidate is using the suggestion that those opposing him can’t handle the fact that he is different to what they are used to (black) they are invaluable.
"This is the first time in my life that I have felt I am actually doing something about what the Democrats have done in the past and are doing now to black people," Rice said. "If the Democrats had left us alone after the Republicans freed us from slavery we wouldn't be having this discussion today. They are keeping blacks in virtual slavery." ……
“In July she launched three radio ads on WLSS, a talk radio station reaching from southern St. Petersburg to Venice, and more are scheduled to run in Charlotte County. One urges listeners to "Look beyond Barack Obama's skin color and soaring rhetoric and see an arrogant, elitist millionaire." Another refers to Obama's friends as "unrepentant terrorists." Another begins with the statement "The Democratic Party is a racist party.”
