Black Conservatives Go on Fox to Play the Victim Card, Complain About How They’re Treated by Liberals

by Yvette Carnell

Conservatives seem to have finally realized that they have a race problem, and they’re  dealing with it by showcasing black black conservativesconservatives and allowing them to air out their grievances on prime time television.

On Monday night’s Hannity, a room full of black conservatives participated in something akin to a live broadcast of a group therapy session.

The show began with Sean Hannity asking Dr. Ben Carson what type of insults he’d been subjected to as a black conservative:

Some of the words cannot be used. It’s really kind of sad. I feel more sorrowful for the people who do that, than I feel angry for them. I represent something that they just can’t quite get their heads around: ‘How can you be black and not march lock-step behind the [airquote] leaders?’ ‘How can you think for yourself?’ ‘And how can you actually have some ideals that actually make sense that don’t agree with their leaders?’ I am very hopeful that this a trend that will be broken. I’m going to continue to speak out. Of course, there is an old trick that you ostracize, you ridicule, you isolate, and you keep repeating…. I’m not sure it’s going to work quite frankly because I don’t plan on going anywhere.

Every conservative in the room raised their hand when asked if they too had been the victim of vicious liberal slurs.

Project 21’s Reginald Jones also spoke about liberals’ “ownership” of black America, adding: “What Dr. Carson and everybody in here represents is a threat to their sense of ownership. Liberals, in total, believe that they own black America….”

The irony here is that conservatives regularly malign liberals for playing the victim, but this Hannity special was nothing if not a pity party.

Although no serious person should support name-calling in politics, it is just as true that political debates unearth a degree of emotion not found in run of the mill water cooler discussions. Unserious people on both the left and the right are quick to use playground antics to make their point, which is exactly what Dr. Carson does when he accuses liberals of being stuck on a “plantation”.

Of course, Hannity loves this format, and has already announced that he’ll be holding more townhalls like this one, which is understandable considering Fox viewers surely love the idea of the much maligned black conservative.

All these race discussion on the right are doubly disturbing when you consider that the GOP steadfastly presents itself as colorblind. Guess pretending to be colorblind only gets you so far, so instead of standing on that principle, the GOP is out to prove that what Ann Coulter said is true: “Our blacks” are better than their blacks. Nice to know.

      No, Lucy, Your President of the United States of America is Satan in faux Christian socialist garb and is bringing chaos and wrecking traditional values and the traditional family in this country.

      I hope you don’t have any “young and impressionable” children so that your neck will not end up “twerking” and your eyes bulging out of your head as those children and millions of others head out into the world indoctrinated by leftist, pro-gay, pro-abortion, anti-wealth (except for taking it from people who honestly earned it in the form of more and more taxes and entitlements for those “indolents” who insist upon having children THAT THEY CANNOT AFFORD AND DO NOT INTEND TO SUPPORT and now depend on government to take care of them from CRADLE to GRAVE!!!)and who think that the highest individual good is the pursuit of hedonism without a care or giving a damn about what their selfish, insouciant attitudes will cost us physically, fiscally, socially and psychologically in this country!!

      Platitudes are cute – that is – if we were not in such a moral quagmire and becoming more and more entrenched every day!! Do you want Planned Parenthood teaching your elementary school children that any kind of sex is okay as long as it does not produce a child and that homosexuality, bisexuality and transgenderism is just as normal and preferred as traditional heterosexuality? How about if they slip up and get pregnant with one of the little “Gosnell (famous abortion doctor/baby killer now on trial in Pennsylvania for killing babies born alive at his West Philadelphia Abortion Mill!!!!) Accidents” they can just go down (in some jurisdictions without parental consent) to have the little “bastards” aborted at one of the state-approved Planned Parenthood Clinics? Do you want over 400 million of YOUR TAX DOLLARS to continue to be given to Planned Parenthood annually?

      What about the legalization of marijuana for recreational purposes, not just for so-called medicinal or compassionate reasons? All of these socially, progressive things are happening every day and many to include Obama and his party want them to be the “law of the land” for this nation and they can only achieve their goals if we are in a state of “moral stupor” and ignorant or uninformed and living off of the “government’s teats!!”

      What about extending so-called “marriage equality” to not only members of the same-sex, but any configuration of sexes in polyamorous unions (and, if the SCOTUS of the United States rules in favor of gay marriage, that will be the next big legal challenge) and, I almost forgot, what about the pedophiles waiting to get their turn to announce, “We love and want to sex and marry children, because that is the way God made us?!! And, lastly what about being demonized or losing your job for religious beliefs that do not follow the “Gay Agenda” (and, there are many… just Google the words to find out!!!) for this country? Hopefully, you (or I) will not end up on some gay or homophobic watch list like they have just proposed in some localities in Canada and in countries like Norway and Sweden where it is considered HATE SPEECH if you have religious or other opposition to homosexuality!

      Does this sound like a democracy to you or is this a prelude to socialism or even some form of Nazism where Hitler mandated universal public school and outlawed home schooling so he could indoctrinate and control the masses in Germany. And, home schools are still outlawed in Germany and a family has sought asylum in this country, the so-called “land of the brave and the free” and the Obama administration is thinking about denying asylum to this family when they have given it to terrorists and others who are not in the best interest of this country!!! And, what better way than starting with the impressionable minds of our children? Some even claim that Hitler was either homosexual or bisexual, as well? Umm… Google our “esteemed” President and check out those stories, as well. There is no accident whatsoever that we are now traversing down this slippery slope of hedonism and immorality under his watch even more than before he assumed office!!

      I could go on and on but what really incenses me is the “tone deafness” of those on the left who call for tolerance and understanding of their points of view but then morph into vicious pit bulls tearing into their opponents and censoring the news with one point of view and that is the LEFT’S WORLD VIEW as if all black people and other kinds of people only want liberal or socialist news or points of view when nothing could be further from the truth!!

      Hannity and Fox News are not the problems. We should have various points of view represented in the mainstream media and the black community, as well. However, the other networks and particularly MSNBC are nothing more than extensions of Obama and the liberalism of the Democratic party and nothing could be more detrimental for this country because they have an obligation to report the news from all sides!!! And, Fox is not always CONSERVATIVE on the news. There is diversity amongst its various “talking heads” and some even support gay marriage to the anger and dismay of many of their conservative viewers!!!!

      I believe that, largely, the mainstream media has a liberal or left-leaning bias and that this is an impediment and a grave disservice to blacks as well as other people in this country who are not willing to do the hard work and the research on the important issues. Like them or not, black conservatives are willing to do the hard work and, unfortunately in the process, are the targets of poisonous and inflammatory commentary and hopefully not something worse as they begin to speak out more like Doctor Benjamin Carson.

      Let’s see. Who would you or the average person find more palatable as a role model: Jay-Z or Doctor Benjamin Carson? If we have to debate the answer, then we are in more trouble than I thought.

      Yes. There is indeed some “brainwashing” going on and isn’t with the black conservatives. Keep drinking the Obama and Democrat’s kool-aide and you will end up with more than a “sugary high.” You will end up with Sodom and Gomorrah and, I believe, we have heard that story before. This time, we will get to experience it up close and personal… in a fiery hell on earth!!!!

        Jalen:

        Our president did not collect a $13 million dollar campaign contribution from the gay community, that was Bill Clinton. So to accuse President O’bama for the demise of the country is ridiculous. There were many before him that started this snowball rolling. Yes, I do recall Sodom and Gammorah. But I also know about the Fall of the Roman Empire and who was running that. Other than your congressmen and other government officials, who do you think are the biggest receivers of Entitlements? Stop blaming the victims. I have no interest of whether one group thinks they are democrat, republican or liberal, none of them have offered one solution to poor education standards, unemployment, homelessness or poverty. From what I see everyone wants a political position so they can leach off the taxpayers of this country. It amazes me that everyone thinks they know what’s best for African Americans, but keep forgetting things may have been very different had we received our forty acres and a mule. I don’t hear that in the conversation today. Is Dr. Ben gonna get my forty acres and a mule for me?

    Oh please. People need to stop whining about being the victim. I can think for myself without insulting another who might not agree with me. Hannity AND Fox LOVES playing Blacks against Blacks, especially since he has such hatred for President Obama. I don’t have a problem with Black, white or Green conservatives or liberals. I know what I believe and I stick with my beliefs. I must say that the “victims” on this segment need to also think for themselves and not resort to being a victim, just to please white people like Hannity. I hope that whatever their political views are that they stay true to themselves and that it’s not a result of self-hate. Sorry but a lot of Black re pubs that I know seem to hate themselves and thus, try to please the white man. That is SAD.

    I hope Sean Hannity will continue this kind of forum because most black liberals do not have any knowledge of history about this country, that’s without Republican Party what would be the status of blacks in this country today. Democrats stood in any way from getting blacks out from slavery to giving them rights as citizens. We hope this kind Sean forums of this kind would educate those low-information blacks to learn from great people like Ben Carson.
