Holy Shit...Have you Seen This!

&feature=player_embedded#t=311s


Timing is everything

But wait. The set-asides didn't happen until April, so that wasn't it. Oh, here's a big free screening in New York with a discussion of how progressive values have enslaved black people all over again. What's the date on that? OH. November 2, 2012, the Friday before the election, and now the description and intro are markedly different:

This former NAACP chapter president says he has committed himself to helping others secure the blessings of liberty that are guaranteed by the Constitution.Rev. Bryant takes viewers on an historic journey across America that traces the footsteps of runaway slaves who escaped to
This may possibly be the movie you never heard of and are glad you haven't. Runaway Slave was released in January, 2012, to movie theaters everywhere.

To date, it has grossed a massive $48,000 or so. It has a top-flight list of stars, including Glenn Beck, Andrew Breitbart, Allen West, and Herman Cain, along with Rev. C.L. Bryant. The description at IMDb:


A perpetual state of welfare exists in the U.S., creating a form of modern slavery for a large percentage of African-Americans. Rev. C.L. Bryant presents an insightful and compelling look at how freedom can be restored.

Presumably this was the version of Dinesh D'Souza's 2016 for black folks. It may have failed at the box office, but it didn't fail overall, evidently. On the consolidated balance sheets for FreedomWorks released by Mother Jones yesterday, there is a recurring set-aside beginning in April and running through September for $500,000 per month. The set-aside is called "Prepaid Funding for Runaway Slave Theater Funding."

Hmmm. Well, let's see. In January, 2012, there was a big Los Angeles premiere with Matt Kibbe and Herman Cain. Free tickets were available for all!


freedom along routes that became known as the Underground Railroad. But in the film, he also travels a “new underground railroad” upon which blacks Conservatives are speaking out against big government policies which have established a “new plantation”.While Rev. Bryant’s compelling story helps launch the film, we soon discover he is not alone as he treks across the new Underground Railroad in America. RUNAWAY SLAVE features interviews with politicians, community leaders and everyday Americans; The documentary’s underlying theme asks the questions:What does the black community have to show for its 95% support of the Democratic Party?Would black America vote for a white Obama?Is it truly “free at last?”

That's better. At least they're honest about it here, but it raises a very serious question in my mind. This film was created by Ground Floor Video in connection with FreedomWorks Foundation and Filmcrest Entertainment. FreedomWorks Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which is not to engage in political activity.

10. "Would black America vote for a white Obama?"

Someone's never bothered looking up the voting statistics, I see Black America has voted overwhelmingly for every Democratic president since Johnson. Even poor ol' Mondale got more than 80% of the black vote. Barack Obama only got 3% more than John Kerry did from black voters.

12. contemptable trash

from people who have nothing but contempt for African Americans.

anything with those losers herman cain and allen west in it is nothing but their bald faced contempt for other blacks. The fact that they barely hide the fact that they think all black people are stupid--no, the deal is not all black americans hate the fact that they're black like these assholes do. Why would anyone in their right mind vote against their own interests like these two fools want them to?

herman cain and allen west are both buffoons... and rev needs to buy a suit that fucking fits.

20. Another neocon propaganda film

This dialog says nothing gives no answers but just inflames differences to divide the minority vote.
Just like dividing whites on guns,SS,Medicare.
Dividing classes with welfare lies
The black divide started after WWII when black solders were not given any GI benefits thus no education,home buying, sending your kids to college, funds to start business
Low wages mean being poor and you cannot support a family, therefore welfare made it possible to survive. they followed the rules which meant single woman received their benefits but married families didn't qualify, because their husbands made poverty wages but too much to qualify.
All these problems could have been taken care of if the 1% didn't start the anti union and anti labor wages and benefits of the 70s and 80s.
My father always said you(the 1%) could pay us a decent wage,health care and pension now which will create prosperity or drive our wages down, take away med. benefits and the pensions
and make the government pay our welfare,food stamps,medicare,SS later or now.
So now that they have stolen the wealth of the country they want our future.
Their goal is to enslave the 98%

26. who is the fool?

 

The fact that very succesful black men...YOUR PEOPLE are telling you this, and you choose not to beleive them, only shows how succesful the very system they speak of has been. you guys thank the right wants you to starve or be cold broke.. thats not true. we only want those who try to be something.. to be something. answer the question honestly. how many people do you know that get a check? how many people do you know that would stop getting a check should they get a decent job, get married like a real family, or simple not have a child? you folks need to wake up from the brain washing, and fear of the right. Its unwise to beleive the left in all they say and do, and maybe u should look at the facts. the constitution applies to EVERYONE. my right to pursue happiness and not have to give away all my money in taxes, is just as imporant as a disabled persons right to have some help. but for a healthy 20 something year old to sit back and be a slave to the system is simply laughable. wake up folks, or ur gonna end up right back where you were in the beginning. along with the rest of the population who chooses to succumb to the government agenda.

"The natural progress of things is for liberty to yeild, and government to gain ground." - Thomas Jefferson to Edward Carrington, Paris, May 27, 1788


they saw it coming..... 300 years early.

At Sun Jan 6, 2013, 07:13 PM you sent an alert on the following post:

who is the fool?
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1017&pid=90380

REASON FOR ALERT:

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See <a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=aboutus#communitystandards" target="_blank">Community Standards</a>.)

YOUR COMMENTS:

Trollin', trollin', trollin'. Keep them wingnuts trollin'. Trollin', trollin', trollin'. RAWHIIIIIIDE!!

JURY RESULTS

A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Sun Jan 6, 2013, 07:26 PM, and voted 3-3 to LEAVE IT ALONE.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT and said: Right wing trash
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: I don't think it is fair to discriminate against drunk posters. Actually that post was sorta funny.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Maybe this poster is trollish, but it seems dangerous to insulate ourselves from all other viewpoints. Sometimes I really want to know what the other side is thinking without the hyperbolic, knee-jerk reactions.

Thank you.

32. These speakers are clueless. Economic slavery would be what the Republican party is creating.

The GOP does the bidding for the CEOs to push for legislation that destroys workers rights (ETA: Hell, they won't even vote to raise minimum wage). You can't have true economic freedom without collective bargaining. Notice how the further unions are crushed the worse wages become or stagnate, and its not because of lack of profits, profits are at an all time high and so is worker productivity, but the worker doesn't reap the benefits of his/her hard work, the top does. Yeah, that's the party that coined the phrase 'trickle down' economics.

Also, these speakers are preaching as if people are somehow asleep and are unaware of their situations. People are the most awake they have been in history, these guys are mad because people vote their own best interests? Talk about undermining and subverting democracy.The only people in the U.S. who I see needing to wake up are those who complain about jobs being shipped overseas while voting for the party that obstructs legislation to keep jobs in America.

I get why CL Bryant votes republican, he's a millionaire. Too bad he's preaching to the Tea Party who are mostly senior citizens collecting Social Security.
