Post-Racial Politics Gets Nasty in Memphis

Here's what we can expect of today's "post-racial" Democrat politics, via The Platform:


This appalling flyer was circulated on behalf of black Congressional candidate Nikki Tinker, who was slow to condemn it. She's in a primary battle with Steve Cohen to get on the Dem ticket in Memphis.

Readers will recall that Cohen recently bent over backwards to appease blacks by pushing through a bill whereby America officially apologized for being so racist — a prelude to slavery reparations.

But no matter how white people grovel and abase themselves, it will never be enough, as Cohen has been learning. He tried to join the Congressional Black Caucus, which would make sense given his constituency, but wasn't allowed on racial grounds. Tinker has been running a TV ad falsely linking Cohen with white supremacists.

If the Dems get any more enlightened about transcending race, Cohen is going to start hearing "Get the Jew, kill the Jew" on the campaign trail.

On a tip from Eric.

The blacks in Memphis are so moonbatty that a few years back they were pressing to remove the memorial to Civil War Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest (under which both Mr. and Mrs Forrest are buried!) from the courthouse lawn along with the bodies of the deceased couple! Why? Because blacks had to look at the statue when at the bus stop and Gen. Forrest happened to be a slave trader before the Civil War. It's part of history, it's not a memorial to his "slave trading skills", it's memorial to his Generalship and service to the CSA. They want reparations for something that never happened to them and want to change history while they are at it!

It's amazing the truth is Republicans have always been the party of civil rights going back to Lincoln. The Democrats have always been the party of slavery and still are (Illegal Immigration) Yet minorities vote for Dems because they promise to take care of them by giving them more welfare, and other government handouts. The Dems are keep minorities impoverished and will continue to do so because they need to keep them there so they need the Democratic Party.

"It's amazing the truth is Republicans have always been the party of civil rights going back to Lincoln."

I am so sick of hearing that CRAP!
Republicans started the REVOLUTION called "Bleeding Kansas" and their responce to seccession was to RAISE THE PROTECTIVE TARIFF.
As for "saint Abraham": over six hundred thousand men, women and children killed because he FEARED that negotiation would be official recognition of the CSA as a foreign country (It would not have been so).

RAM, you point out the paradox of the race-baiters. They want to eradicate every trace of the COnfederacy, but they never want us to forget that some southern folks owned slaves.

Real Christians support Israel.

Jesus is a Jew.

Beyond that, debate is futile.

It is written.

I live about 10 miles from Memphis, and have seen all the ridiculous crap that Tinker is throwing around.

Not to worry, though. I saw on the local news this morning that Cohen won by a landslide.

Mikey's right...he be the crap out of her.

Hey, Mikey, I'm originally from around Memphis, too. Heard of Munford?

I would love to go to Memphis sometime soon. Cool town, from what I've seen-Stax records, Elvis, The River, great chow. And now they keep Steve Cohen.
