That would be the black Republican primary voter in South Carolina. Here’s the FOX Noise exit poll from yesterday:
Absorb that. Blacks are 28% of South Carolina’s population, but are 1% (or less) of Republicans in the state.
How does a national party alienate an ethnic demographic in a state so completely?
Oh, I see.
To prick the bubble of self-righteous rectitude and feigned “bravery” in Newt Gingrich’s comment—and expose his racism—simply trope, for food stamps and NAACP convention, two terms near-and-dear to the hearts (and wallets) of white farmers in the Midwest: ethanol and ethanol convention. Gingrich has not only supported federal ethanol subsidies—ethanol welfare—but lobbied for them (himself thus enjoying remuneration around the taxpayer supported ethanol trough).
Gingrich should get off the government tit and earn his money honestly, don’t you think?
And I eagerly await the day that Gingrich bravely takes on, not the black “welfare mom,” but the white “ethanol mom.” But do you think that day will ever come, or that he would frame and drive the ethanol issue at rural white voters with such an inflammatory, personal, and alienating term?
Why, then, is it perfectly acceptable, within the 2012 Republican Party, to direct, nonchalantly, such rhetorical moves toward blacks? Do a lot of Republicans really believe that the black race in America is the enemy and a substantial source for the federal government’s deficit spending?
