Redstate Reaches Out to Black People
:rofl:

BLACK COMEDY. RedState is reaching out to black people. Don't believe it? Here's the proof:

Dear American Blacks:


Unfortunately they're doing it at RedState, so very few African-Americans will read it. Which may be just as well...

Sometimes no, actually always the true friend is the one who tells you what you dont want to hear. The one who does not indulge you, the one who will neither promise you nor give you candy and other bennies. Instead he tells you to sit down and eat your green beans and spinach and if you want that nice car, then quit whining, get an education, earn a good job, and earn that nice car.


...because they sound less like their friends and more like their parole officer.

The subject is a D.C. school voucher program which Democrats have opposed. This they portray as a fulfillment of said Democrats' desire to keep black people down. Having proved this by assertion, they continue to talk turkey to their imaginary black friends:

I ask you to consider, why is it that you hate Republicans so much?


Apparently they expect their friends of color to forget about decades of Southern Strategy and concentrate on what appears to be a Terry Southern Strategy, though in their case the satire is probably unintentional.

Republicans do not know how to approach you. Democrats and the Democrat-dominated press have misled you and stoked up your wrath to the point that you will not listen to us.

So I propose this: how about listening? How about listening to what Republicans have to say, instead of what the Democrats say we say? How about listening to what we have to say before booing us out of the building?


Black people have apparently been very unfair to them, yet RedState continues to reach out:

We received not one ounce of gratitude from you, but we did it anyway. And we will continue to do what is right for America, for whites, for blacks, for Latinos, for Republicans, for Democrats, for today, and for the future.

Join us. Consider it, anyway.


There. Now they can say they tried. Let it be on their heads.
