That particular statement regarding charity and control has been making the rounds ever since Republicans discovered that they could get a little mileage out of it years ago. It's nothing new that you have stumbled upon Tot. It's old hat.
It's fodder for Aryans, such as yourself Tot, who continue trying to use it. Aryans use it to formulate anger, and resentment towards minorities that meet hunger eligibility requirements in order to get foodstamps and medical aid. Aryan extremists, such as yourself, use it as a tool to also bash Liberals.
It's hate talk primarily used by fellow Aryan extremists who feel marginalized by societal and cultural changes made available to minorities.
I keep on tryin and tryin to tell ya tot" It's a New World Charlie Brown but the bus is about to stop and let out all the old aging and balding white men who want to ride on the old bus that brung 'em to the dance a while back.
Soooo What is the intent of entitlment programs for ethnicities other than black? One of the weaker party lines I have heard in a while. Poverty and hunger does not discriminate; the effects are the same regardless of ethnicity.
Regardless of origin or age, truth remains TRUTH. Here's the video:
It appears that Guiollory made his comments a few WEEKS ago. Perhaps the new world order might be more black Democrats going over the GOP?
It's cyclical - and everything old is new again. I look for the Repubicans to make gains in the House and Senate in 2014.
....and the highlights of Guiollory's comments include:
"You see, in recent history, the Democrat party has created the illusion that their agenda and their policies are what’s best for black people,” Guillory said. “Somehow it has been forgotten that the Republican party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement, with one simple creed: that slavery is a violation of the rights of man.”
The former Democrat explained that Frederick Douglass called Republicans the “party of freedom and progress.” He also pointed out that former Republican President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and Republicans in Congress wrote the Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments.
“The Democrats, on the other hand, were the party of Jim Crow,” Guillory added. “It was the Democrats who defended the rights of slave owners.”
He went on: “You see, at the heart of liberalism, is the idea that only a great and powerful big Government can be the benefactor of social justice for all Americans. But the left is only concerned with one thing: control. And they disguise this control as charity.”
Guillory claimed entitlement programs like welfare and food stamps were never designed to “lift black Americans out of poverty,” but rather to control them.
Further, the welfare programs haven’t even helped blacks at all as they are still “as poor as they’ve ever been,” he argued.
“But most importantly, it is the idea that the individual must be free to pursue his or her own happiness, free from Government dependence, and free from Government control. Because to be truly free, is to be reliant on no one, other than the author of our destiny,” Guillory continued, pointing to God. “These are the ideas are at the core of Republican party… My brothers and sisters of the American community, please join me in abandoning the Government plantation and the party of disappointment.”
“So that we may all echo of one Republican leader who famously said, ‘Free at last, free at last. Thank God almighty, we are free at last,” he concluded."
Truth remains truth.
HMJC: Yes hunger, poverty, and lack of medical aid crosses ALL ethnicities including impoverished white folks. I know that. The fact that the right props these programs up as Government gone wrong is inherently inaccurate. It is used as a wedge issue by conservatives who for the most part believe that EVERYBODY needs to pull themselves up by their bootstraps, even if they don't have any boots or money to buy any.
Hi Sebe: yes I know the South lost the war and slavery was brought to its rightful demise. Fine. But right now we have a Black Democratic President whom country club conservative Republicans wish to tar and feather. Not to mention putting up a wall to hinder passage of any legislation he puts forward in Congress.
So, in summation fellas, yes the Republicans freed the black slaves. But the Democrats made a Black man the leader of the free world.
MLK would be proud.
As for you fellas present Conservative hero Guillory, he is nothing more than a political opportunist cut from the same which ever the wind is blowing politically, as Zell Miller.
Guillory IS the new Zig-Zag.
JimmyMack, HMJC and sebekm thank you each for your comments.
I just watched the video again and must say it is a very good speech.
As far as Guillory being simply a zig zaging opportunist that may be but I don't think so.
Someone once said a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of a small mind.
A wise man will change his mind when he gets the whole picture.
"Guillory IS the new Zig-Zag."
Good for him. Some people do eventually see the error of their ways.
The "welfare system" was designed (supposedly) to be a hand-up, not a perpetual hand-OUT. It was supposed to solve the "poverty" problem by enabling people "down on their luck" or when the economy took a downturn to stay afloat until they were able to retain SELF-SUFFICIENCY. Also, remember that this system was implemented nearly EIGHTY YEARS AGO.
Instead, we have now literally had GENERATIONS of Americans - a whole lot of them black - who have become freeloaders and have little incentive to get off the welfare rolls. To make things worse, the current administration is now taking credit for increasing the welfare and food stamp rolls, and are using their philosophy of wealth redistribution to BUY VOTES to perpetuate their agenda. It may be a "whole new world," but IMHO THIS "NEW WORLD" STINKS.
Guiollory and all the others who believe that in practicality the current system simply enables the Democrats to push their agenda via "free stuff" in exchange for votes ARE CORRECT. In politics, when you can get a consituency to blindly follow your lead and vote for people and an agenda that in the end makes them SLAVES TO THE SYSTEM ITSELF, that - my friends - is called CONTROL.
(...and it IS Guillory - with only one "o"....I saw it misspelled at another link and copied the error....)
Will someone please make this a learning opportunity for me and afford me the precise percentage of Blacks (a whole lot of them black who have become freeloaders)...and the length of time those disadvataged humans can remain eligible for "free stuff?" And while your at it how many of them "freeloaders'(not my word) actually vote? A ballpark percentage will do for now.
And if one is so inclined, might I be enlightened regarding the NAACP stance toward our Democrat President?
Personally, I believe that making the claim that Blacks can be bought with "free stuff" handed out by Democrats is a racist and is an insult to the Black culture as a whole. That sort of "New World" speak harkens back to the openly racist days when impoverished Black folks would feel compelled to intone:..."yasah, boss, you knows we be happy don't ya know" while being forced to live in squalor.
If I was a person of color I would take the "free stuff" "new World" mantra as yet another incredible insult thrust upon them by the Man.
And just how much deeze welfare cheks and foodstamps amount to cuz I wants me some of all dat money.
To answer your question regarding the racial makeup of welfare recipients, it is as follows: blacks 33.3 percent, whites 31.2 percent, Hispanics 28.8 percent, Asians 2.1 percent and American Indians 1.3 percent.
Thank you Up2. I guess dem numbahs posted reflect the profound impact inflicted upon the Electoral College.
But just As long as its bein' down da rabbit hole, dat is.
Republicans are a dying buffoonery of out of touch white bubbas and bubbetts.
It is becoming a Yankee take on Southern racial intercourse.
The Snow birds just don't get it.
I get it. The Dems buy votes through wealth redistribution - thereby maintaining a permanent underclass who continues to vote them into office. They rely on this cycle in order to sustain their position in the U.S. national political system. It's not too difficult to understand.
It's not just blacks - it's ALL welfare recipients I was referring to - those people who the welfare system was designed to provid a helping HAND to - not an ETERNAL HAND-OUT.
And as of September 2012, welfare recipients increased 71% during the Obama Administration:
By not focusing on the economy, Mr. Obama has continued the Democratic party tradition of controlling their consituency by making them believe that only through big government - AND THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY - can they survive. This debilitation has crippled our economy and disincentivized a large portion of the population from self-reliance and independence.
I stand by my prior comments.
My, my, my, I had no idea the magnitude of electoral influence all these "free loaders" had. Dis must be Obama's and da Dems "silent minority" as opposed to Nixon's "silent majority."
Their electoral influence is AT LEAST more than the 4% the President needed to win reelection. When you look at the numbers, the "welfare constituency" is a SIGNIFICANT slice of the Democratic party base. Why do you think they are so eager to give them cell phones and crow about increaasing the food stamp rolls? They are PANDERING to that constituency to maintain their votes. Both parties pander, but to maintain an underclass in order to stay in power - IMHO - is DESPICABLE.
As to Nixon, he was a crook - plain and simple. His election in 1972 was invalidated by his impeachment.
Shame Seb. Nixon wasn't impeached. He was going to be and so he resigned and Ford pardoned him, which cause a lot of backlash for Ford. Only two presidents have been impeached, Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton.
Sebe, Sebe, Sebe...I don't know what's got stuck in your craw but I hope it ain't permenant. This 'argument' that the Welfare massess are a vital and important voting bloc...well it's just starting to get a little sad, if you really believe it to be so. The argument debases the integrity of the individuals within this minority voting bloc, if in fact one can say that they are a for real voting bloc. They are being made to sound like they are zombies controlled by free tweenkies and inoperable cell phones.
You're right, up2. My wishful thinking got the best of me on that one. Nixon SHOULD HAVE BEEN impeached, and woulda if he hadn't turned tail and ran. (I must be more careful to conceal my creeping senility.)
Jimmy: It's TRUE! We've had welfare for 80 years and there have been generations of "hand-outs" with little change in our national situation. But the one constant has been the Democratic party maintaining their welfare constituency. The "Obama Phone Lady" accurately relayed this support in her viral YouTube video. See:
She was ridiculed and made into a caricature by the media and some on the right, but I believe she was speaking the TRUTH as it is for many on perpetual welfare.
Sebe: I desire not to seek out the "Obama Phone Lady" to help clarify this issue for me.
So nada on this one Sebe. I made my beliefs known for all to see above and see no need to keep repeating myself.
I guess we should just let Allah sort it all out.
I am just old enough to remember when welfare was still something new and people who were in need were embarrassed by the fact.
There was a degree of shame because of pride.
Now we've got young adults who were born into "the projects" and have grown up there. Many of them remain there for their entire lives.
They become slaves to the plantation and are a drain on society.
We have simply got to return to some kind of program which offers a hand up instead of a handout.
The Obama Phone Lady speaks the truth. But it now appears that Mr. Obama has lost even HER support:
