The day following the upset of Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore by Democrat Doug Jones in Alabama, Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, tweeted the following:
"Let me be clear: We won in Alabama and Virginia because #BlackWomen led us to victory. Black women are the backbone of the Democratic Party, and we can’t take that for granted. Period."
On December 12th, black Americans turned out in droves to vote for Doug Jones. His fish fry parties worked. His KKK prosecution kept him relevant. And the hidden ultimate agenda of the socialist Democrat Party provided for Jones the loyal support he and other Democrats expected.
According to The New York Times, black voters in Alabama "were motivated by the specific fears that Mr. Moore would help President Trump cut government aid programs, reduce access to healthcare, and neglect criminal justice reform." So black voters turned out, representing 30 percent of the electorate, and voted for Jones at 96 percent.
Fear often proves to be a greater motivator than hope.
Compare Alabama's black electorate in 2008 and 2012, and you’ll see that not even the hope for change brought out the black vote like the fear of loss. The New York Times notes, "The share of black voters on Tuesday was higher than the share in 2008 and 2012, when Barack Obama was on the ballot."
Democrats do an incredible job of making the sky fall when it's time to drum up the black vote. Sadly, the black electorate in Alabama, like the majority of the black electorate across the country, can forget about a return on their Democrat loyalty. Though not commonly understood by the voter blocs Democrats deceive, the party is socialist, now moving toward communist. Remember, they almost presented an unashamed socialist as their candidate for president last year. Socialist policies like those that have the stated goal of abolishing "private ownership of the means of production" don't do anything to lift the voters Democrats claim to care about.
The party that uses black people for their vote keeps that vote by threatening that government programs could be snatched away by hateful Republicans. Racist Democrats calculate well that their expansion of programs creates generations of dependency. They never even consider the black women who vote against their interests when they vote for Democrats are leading in small business ownership. That's right; black women are the "backbone" of a party that expects them to be overwhelmingly poor, when they are actually ahead of the pack when it comes to successful business startups. Still, one of the more remarkable stats to come out of Alabama's special election was that black women who made a significant show voted for Jones at 98 percent!
Last year, Black Enterprise published the findings of a 2015 report commissioned by American Express OPEN. The 2015 State of Women-Owned Businesses Report found, "The number of businesses owned by minority women has increased from 1 in 6 in 1997 to 1 in 3 in 2015." Black Enterprise continued, "While non-minority women-owned firms grew 40 percent over the 18-year time period, black women-owned firms grew 322 percent and Latina-owned firms grew 224 percent. Women now own 30 percent of all businesses in the U.S., accounting for some 9.4 million firms. And African-American women control 14 percent of these companies, or an estimated 1.3 million businesses, employing 297,500 workers and generating $52.6 billion in revenue.”
Those numbers are astounding!
When considering this report alone, one is forced to question such blind allegiance to a party that:
- Doesn't acknowledge even the possibility that black voters, especially women, can and do exist outside of the support of the government,
- Doesn't reward entrepreneurial endeavors, or even encourage it in policy initiatives, and
- Is undeniably infiltrated and led by socialists who have as their ultimate objective the total abolition of private business ownership and the confiscation and redistribution of such profit.
Democrats continue to sweep into black neighborhoods, collect votes, and leave those neighborhoods in the exact same state. Maybe this isn't a disappointment to black voters. The truth might actually be that black voters don't elect Democrats to change their communities. Maybe, and Democrats know this in the most offensive way, black voters elect Democrats because of the assurance that their communities will remain unchanged. Perish the thought that business-friendly conservatives would push for empowerment initiatives that actually empower.
Be still, my heart, that government roll-back might result in successful entrepreneurial risk. And woe to anyone who would dare believe that the black electorate is not a collection of bottom feeders who lose sleep at night wondering when “Massa” government will decrease plantation rations.
