My stomach turned upon hearing Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren promising to end environmental racism. I thought, “Here we go again with another Democrat attempting to fill blacks with more victim nonsense while trashing America, claiming that even the weather in the U.S. victimizes blacks.”
As the rabbi stated, viewing oneself as a victim is not empowering. It weakens you.
President Trump is the best thing for blacks since sliced bread. Under Trump, black unemployment is at an historic low. The record of Trump’s extraordinary business career is filled with examples of advocating for and hiring blacks.
For decades, I pleaded with the GOP to make a strong effort to reach out to black voters. The cynical response was, “Why bother? African-Americans will always vote for Democrats no matter what we do.” My retort was, “Republicans have a moral duty to counter Democrats’ destructive lies by taking the truth about America’s greatness to black communities.” Trump is the first Republican president in my lifetime to seriously and sincerely court black voters.
Branding Trump as a racist is yet another evil Democrat lie to steer blacks away from a Republican who has their best interests at heart, implementing policies beneficial to them.
Unlike the Democratic party, the Republican party does not treat me like a poor inferior child in need of constant government intervention.
Folks, the bottom line is America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to go for their dreams! This inspiring truth is as repulsive to Democrats as showing Dracula the cross.
