Republican outreach to African-Americans is reaching the next inevitable phase. The attacking Republican African-Americans who criticize attempts to whitewash slavery phase (Fox “News” link).
Republican presidential candidate and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis hit back at fellow White House contender Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., on Friday after the latter criticized Florida’s new school history curriculum and its approach to teaching about slavery.
“I think part of the reason our country has struggled is because D.C. Republicans all too often accept false narratives, accept lies that are perpetrated by the left,” DeSantis said during a campaign stop. “And to accept the lie that Kamala Harris has been perpetrating even when that has been debunked – that’s not the way you do it.”
“The way you do it, the way you lead is to fight back against the lies, is to speak the truth. So I’m here defending my state of Florida against false accusations and against lies. And we’re going to continue to speak the truth,” he added.
As an aside: Once again the man some Republicans hoped would provide all of the bigotry and tax breaks they got from tRump without the unpleasant side effects (open display of all seven deadly sins, being an ignorant lump and refusing to share all the money he gets from economically anxious Americans) shows he doesn’t have what it takes to be America’s next top fascist.
The Republican base doesn’t want wishy-washy whining about truth, lies and siding with Vice President Harris. They want someone to say chattel slavery was good, Black people should be thankful and joke about bringing it back. They want threats, they want slurs.
Of course it included some whitesplaining based on the lamentably common assumption that Scott hadn’t given race a thought until someone “bad” told him about it.
And to start with, anytime you hear the left saying anything about anything related to race, never believe it on face value. Assume that they are lying because they always are.
No, Sen. Scott! Stay away from the forbidden apple of race that Vice Serpent Harris is offering you!
Walsh shifts from saying Scott is being manipulated by the left (because he’s a dumb blah person) to saying Scott knows what he’s doing (because he’s a conniving blah person). After some fumbling he settles on finding Scott guilty of attacking DeSantis from The Left. That is, Scott, a member of the right, holds an opinion that happens to be held by anyone on The Left and that opinion contradicts anyone else on The Right.
You never go after your own side from the left. Go after them. You criticize them. Never from the left. That is the unforgivable sin. If there is one sin among conservatives, it is attacking your own side from the left. You do that and you are — you should be dead to us at that point. The moment you did — do that, it’s over. You adopt the left’s talking points to go after your own side, screw you. You’re done.
LOL. Black Republicans aren’t going to leave the party because something like Matt wants them to step without fetching. However, it is interesting to see white Republicans raise the price of admission.
I just hope Vice President Harris attacks sticking a metal fork in an electric socket. From the left.
Whoops, forgot: People who post off-topic comment want to lick DeSantis’ white boots and sniff Walsh’s beard.
