Last night I spoke at an event in Alexandria for EW Jackson, GOP nominee for Lieutenant Governor in Virginia. Jackson’s story is a powerful one, initially raised in poverty in a foster home, juvenile delinquency, reunited with his dad, former Marine, summa cum laude from U Mass, and Harvard law school graduate. However, the story yesterday was an attack against his daughter in POLITICO. The liberal media revels in attacking minority conservatives — prominent Hispanic conservative Senator Ted Cruz experiences the same treatment. However, the party of slavery, secession, segregation, Jim Crow, and the KKK especially enjoys attacking black conservatives, well aided by a highly complicit liberal progressive media and black liberals who remain silent. Consider how, on the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s March on Washington, not a single black conservative was invited to speak. No Justice Clarence Thomas or Senator Tim Scott. However, the man who cancelled the DC school voucher program for deserving black kids, Barack Obama, was celebrated. The hypocrisy is glaring. The continual practice of not just disagreeing but seeking to destroy the lives of those minority conservatives who do not embrace liberal dogma is vile. However, no one can destroy our steadfast resolve. Black conservatives are especially hated by liberals because we so love America.
