Steele Steps In it Again: Blacks 'Don't have A Good Reason To Vote Republican'

Yes, he actually said that:

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele told a group of students that African-Americans “don’t have a reason” to vote for Republicans.

Steele was asked Tuesday night during a speech to roughly 200 students at DePaul University why African-Americans should vote for GOP candidates.

“You really don’t have a reason, to be honest,” Steele responded, as was first reported by the Chicago Sun-Times. “We haven’t done a very good job of giving you one.”

“We have lost sight of the historic, integral link between the party and African-Americans,” Steele said. “This party was co-founded by blacks, among them Frederick Douglass. The Republican Party had a hand in forming the NAACP, and yet we have mistreated that relationship. People don’t walk away from parties, Their parties walk away from them.

“For the last 40-plus years we had a ‘Southern Strategy’ that alienated many minority voters by focusing on the white male vote in the South. Well, guess what happened in 1992, folks, ‘Bubba’ went back home to the Democratic Party and voted for Bill Clinton.”

Needless to say, regardless of context or what he might have meant about the need for outreach, what's being reported in the Leftist media is that Steele said blacks have no reason to vote Republican and that Steele 'admitted the GOP's racism.'

Well done, Mr. Chairman! You stuck your foot into your stoo-pid mouth...again.

Actually, doofus, there are plenty of reasons for blacks to vote Republican.

The GOP at its conservative best - and it's vitally important to say that - champions the rights of the individual rather than the rights of government. It favors lower taxes, fiscal responsibility, and a climate where people are allowed to achieve on their own merits and RISE UP, the quality above all that has people fighting to come to America. In short, it stands for freedom instead of government dependent slavery.

It favors life over the right to kill babies if they happen to be inconvenient.The Democrat's abortion-on-demand policies have disproportionately affected blacks just the way Planned Parenthood's racist founder Margaret Sanger intended.

And it favors families and the sort of moral traditions taught in the majority of black churches as opposed to the Democrat's policies starting in the 1960's that decimated the black family.

It even favors giving working families the right to take advantage of the same private schools favored by the elites and choose how their children are educated and get away from unsafe, dysfunctional public schools run by inept, corrupt bureaucrats and the teacher's unions.

And most importantly, it gives black folks a chance to vote for a party that actually considers them equal and capable individuals, rather than a box to check in the racial bean counting lottery that goes along with the inherent liberal racism of artificial results...predicated on the racist expectation of failure.

Oh, and that so-called 'Southern strategy'? For one thing, it wasn't just Southern in origin but extended to the Midwest and the Sun Belt. Nixon first used that term and trust me, it wasn't successful so much because of racism as it was because of the hell storm of counter culture anarchy and violence the Left unleashed on the country in 1968 and the Democrat party's embracing of that demon seed four years later with McGovern in 1972. Watch videos of the '72 Democrat convention some time to see what America was looking at and why the country went overwhelmingly Republican and abandoned the Democrats and their values.

That's the sort of things someone like Michael Steele ought to be telling blacks, instead of telling them they're right all along to stay on the Left's plantation.

Doesn’t Steele’s role go beyond creating soundbites for the Democrats and extend to developing and communicating a strategy how to engage the African American voter in the Republican party? Is he working for Obama and the DNC?

At this point I doubt they'll fire him, but he definitely needs to be put in a secure bunker somewhere in handcuffs and a ball gag with a moat around it so that no reporter can get to him until it's time to cut him adrift in a floatie with the Humboldt current...just to make sure he doesn't find his way back again..

please helps me write more gooder!

When are Republicans going to see that Steele was as big a msitake as Obama. Ther eason peole don' vote Republican is because he is a looser and a moron who has no idea what he is doing.

Actually I don't see the Republican party pushing the things you describe. Perhaps at one time it did but I just don't see that now.

Sure there are some Republicans who do stand for the things you mention but overall and especially among the leadership of the party the Republican is really just "Democrat-lite." From being beaten in the last two election cycles the conclusion these people have come to is to try and be more Democrat!!

aside from agreeing with everything ff stated in his essay, i would re-state the last paragraph, or include one that references the race card.
anytime steele gets the feeling he's being pushed out the door, he'll let loose with one of these race card comments.
if he then is let go, he'll say, see i told you so. and in doing so add so much more ammunition to the dimocrats arsenal of nonsense.
as for myself, somehow or another, i recieved one of those republican donation requests here at the store.
considering what i wrote on the donation card, and returning it checkless, i may just hear from their legal counsel. i know that in repeating here ff would not post my comment.

The way I look at it Louie, the damage Steele is doing far outweighs any benefit he provides by making the GOP appear to be a 'bigger tent'.

Racial bean counting merely worsens the problem.

Or to put it another way,IMO a black person that votes for Obama out of simple tribal loyalty deserves to.

And no amount of reasoned discourse is going to convince them otherwise.

Louie has a point. If Mr. Steele is let go, let loose with race card comments is probably what he will do. If he does, the Republican leadership can make the arguments that FF makes in his essay.

They won't do it though. The reason is because they do not believe the arguments that FF makes. They think the comments by Mr. Steele is spot on. After losing the last two elections running as "Democrat-Lite", they have decided the solution is to be more like the Democrats.

We'll see if it works for them. Perhaps Mr. Obama is bad enough that it might just work this time around.

Also, if Mr. Steele is let go, the Republican leaders could point out the corruption and waste of money associated with Mr. Steele. They won't do this either. Why? The reason is the "Democrat-Lite", "Country Club" Republicans who rule the party like the corruption and waste of money.
