It has been a long, tired cliché that all black Americans vote Democrat. Sure, in the past, most black voters supported the left. But that has never been 100% true and, in recent years, that tide has shifted dramatically.
Not only are there millions of black conservatives and Trump supporters, there are notable black leaders within the party. Some of the most influential and important politicians in our country are black conservatives, including Ben Carson, Clarence Thomas, Tim Scott, and Burgess Owens. Candance Owens is a popular conservative speaker, whose influence among young Americans only continues to grow.
Yet the mainstream media—and political left—pretend that Republicans are only old, while men. They refuse to see just how many black Americans have left the Democratic plantation to embrace conservative values like free speech, capitalism, pro-life, and small government.
And it seems that a major caucus, the Congressional Black Caucus, won’t even let a newly elected black Republican join their ranks.
The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), which is controlled by Democrats, is allegedly refusing to let Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL), who is black, join the group.
“It’s been six months since the members who won election in 2020 were inducted into the CBC, a powerful and nominally nonpartisan group of Black lawmakers in Congress,” BuzzFeed News reported. “Donalds, who won election for the first time last year, has not been included in that group.” …
“The sad reality is although the Congressman and those in the CBC share the same race, the (R) behind his name disqualifies him from membership today.” [Source: Daily Wire]
The CBC appears to be discriminating against Rep. Donalds, not because of his race, but because he is a proud Republican.
Isn’t that ironic? Democrats have, for decades, painted themselves as the party of equality—champions against racism and discrimination. Yet today, they treat black Republicans with a kind of hatred we rarely see in America.
Whenever a prominent black person expresses views contrary to the Democratic Party, they are branded public enemies. We all remember how the mainstream media tried to destroy Kanye West for donning a MAGA hat. It seems Democrats don’t even regard black Americans as people, if they support the Republican Party.
Remember, we have a man in the White House who said black people “ain’t black” if they supported Trump. That kind of attitude persists across the party. All the progress black Americans have made over generations for equal rights, economic freedom, and tolerance apparently doesn’t apply to those who are on the right.
Why else would the CBC blatantly refuse to let Donalds join their group? Doesn’t his views as a black man, an elected official, matter as much as the rest? Yet we see a major group in Congress that is supposed to represent black Americans rejecting someone on the basis of politics.
How long do Democrats think they can get away with this kind of discrimination? Americans are waking up to the fact that the left is the least tolerant group in the country. Disagree with them, have an opinion other than what they say, and they will treat you worse than a criminal.
Voters won’t stand for that for very long.
