We knew that liberals would use the Michael Brown shooting to try to win elections. They mailed flyers to stir up the anger of “low interest” black voters to get them to vote early. It’s pure pandering, but what else have they got? Stoking racial resentment and class envy, encouraging covetousness, and pushing more government dependency are all they have.
Georgia Democratic Party Chairman DuBose Porter said this to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
“Again, it’s about opportunity. Are you going to be in situations more like that? I mean, that’s when you don’t have people having the opportunity for jobs or to participate in their community and the opportunity to grow. When you have communities like that that are stagnant — that’s what we’re getting to in Georgia — and when you offer people the HOPE grant to get retrained, or the fundamentals in education so we can get our dropout rate down. That very much of what that climate is, is what we’re trying to change here.”
Maryland Democrats are also using the Ferguson tactic. The Washington Post reports that in Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown’s campaign for governor, Democrats have gone even further. They invoked Jim Crow, which, ironically, depicts Democrat tactics from the era, and implied that the photo ID requirement is similar to poll taxes and literacy tests.
