Trump the Race Card: Are You Sick and Tired of Being Called a Racist and You Know You’re Not One

CPAC is back! It’s my favorite time of year and I’d like to start with a Q&A discussion session titled “Trump the Race Card: Are You Sick and Tired of Being Called a Racist and You Know You’re Not One?” What a fantastic title! I’m sure some of my conservative visitors helped come up with that one.

True to form, a discussion of how Republicans are tired of being called racists turned into a display of their racism.

K Carl Smith, the moderator of the CPAC session, calls himself a “Frederick Douglass Republican.” While he was speaking, the following exchange took place. Smith, speaking of Frederick Douglass, said “When Douglass came through slavery … he [wrote] a letter to his former slave master and said: ‘I forgive you for all the things you did to me’.”

From the floor, Scott Terry (Republican and self-proclaimed direct descendant of former confederate president Jefferson Davis) spoke up saying “For giving him shelter and food for all those years?”

Oh snap! The floor broke into chaos. Smith tried to shout down the crowd with his microphone and even initially refused to yield to a young black woman who objected to Terry’s comment.

Scott Terry was accompanied by a young man (festooned with a t-shirt bearing the confederate battle flag on it) named Matthew Heimbach who is president of the White Students Union at Towson University in Maryland. As you can imagine, the group is not exactly the Rainbow Coalition.

When the chairman made a reference to Martin Luther King, Heimbach shouted out that King was a “Marxist” and said that CPAC was “Surrender Con.” Why? Because CPAC never supports running a true white conservative as a presidential candidate. “We are losing. We keep running moderate candidates.”

Heimbach supports ending GOP outreach programs to instead focus on more white voters. “If Mitt Romney had won 3% more of the white vote he would have won.” He added that he was a fan of the Russian government for encouraging white people to have more children. “I like what President Vladimir Putin is doing.” The world is officially upside down… Now Russia is an ideal to the right?

Only at a Republican convention can a discussion of how the GOP really isn’t racist turn into an exhibition of the party’s racism.

    I don’t know about a Marxist.. but Martin Luther King was certainly a fraud. He plagiarized his thesis for his doctorate, his “I have a dream” speech, amongst others, and stole money from the church to pay for orgies with white prostitutes.

    This will be seen as racist too. I only point these things out to show that you often only hear the story you want to hear.
