Jeannemarie Davis, GOP Candidate, wants to hear from YOU re: 9/11

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/11/jeannemarie-davis-911_n_1874192.html?ncid=edlinkusaolp00000009

A Republican candidate for Virginia lieutenant governor, Jeannemarie Davis, is invoking the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks to boost her campaign, using the grim anniversary as a peg to get people to tell her how President Barack Obama is hurting them.

"As we remember those fallen Americans from 11 years ago, please encourage everyone to participate in our great Democracy," wrote Davis, director of the Virginia Liaison Office in Washington and wife of former Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.), in a campaign email that was forwarded to The Huffington Post.

She went on to suggest people could remember 9/11 and participate in democracy by helping her.

"I would appreciate it if you would take a minute to go to www.jeannemarie4LG.com and give me your feedback on a survey as I begin my tour of the Commonwealth," Davis wrote. "Please provide information on any ways that the Obama Administration has hurt you or your community, so that I can better tell the story of why it is so important that Virginians replace President Obama and his Democratic Senate.

"Also, please email back to let me know if you would like to be invited to events in your area, or if you would like me to attend any events," she continued.

Dear White Conservatives (not the fiscal ones LOL)

An open letter to all the white conservatives on Facebook who keep telling me I am too brainwashed to understand that the Democrats are really, really racist, and the Republicans are not.

There were about 143 black people at the GOP convention, not counting the ones on stage. Do you think that was an accident? Or are you the racists who believe the 99.9% of Black people who will likely vote of Obama/Biden are ALL "brainwashed?" Let me answer that for you and others, once and for all.

Most African-Americans don't agree with the Republican party's economic, domestic, or foreign policy agenda. We know that "trickle down" economics is a ruse to distribute wealth to the 1%. We don't think people who use racism to attract white voters have our best in mind. We don't support the party that includes so many vocal racists, like yourselves, Limbaugh, Coulter, etc. And we don't think Cain or West or Thomas are "independent thinkers," but rather mediocre, shallow, opportunists who have no self-respect or pride. They allow the same party that continues the use "the southern strategy" to attract racially-challenged white voters to trot them out as proof that the GOP isn't what we all know it is: the party of angry, racist, deluded, greedy, mostly white people. Hell...you folks don't even have any respect for them, really.

We believe the Democratic Party has the best minds, the best plans, and the best policies for ALL Americans. We believe the Democratic Party reflects the diversity of the current America, not the American of 1812 that many of you seem to want to recreate in 2012. And finally, some of us Black people, like the President, are way smarter than a lot of white people, so this pathetic attempt to "educate" us with the ridiculous notion that the Democratic party is actually more racist than Republican party is just laughable. Not it isn't just laughable: it's also racist as hell. Many of you I encounter on the Internet can't even spell, yet you have the gall to assume that you can lecture any Black person about what is and what isn't racist. Let me tell you something: growing up Black in America is akin to having a doctorate in race relations, so please don't assume your white skin grants you definitive knowledge on the subject. It doesn't.

We have a President who is intelligent, capable articulate and likeable, and I believe that last fact really chaps your collective, white ass. And whether you like it or not, he is probably going to be re-elected. So continue to fume and moan about Muslims, Socialists, and Communists all you want: we SEE you. Thanks to you, your racism is not just a discussion among Black people anymore: your racism is a apparent to everyone.

In closing, we have a Black president who is well-loved, articulate, intelligent, and capable. He is married to a beautiful, intelligent Black woman, and they have two amazing children. I know that reality bothers you quite a bit, so may I offer a humble suggestion: Get over yourselves, and deal with it.

Now...go lecture a chair.
