Romney being booed by audience at NAACP is proof he is a RAAAAACIST! [Darleen Click]
Just when you think the Left has reached the bottom of delusional race-baiting, now comes the charge that Romney staged the booing at the NAACP in order to appeal to “his racist base.”
Politicians don’t write speeches expecting to be booed. They try to word their views in a way to appeal to voters. Mitt Romney didn’t write his speech to appeal to African Americans. He intentionally wrote it to be booed by blacks in order to appeal to the racists in his base.
Avis Jones-DeWeever, the executive director of the National Council of Negro Women, said Romney had accomplished a “calculated political ploy” by signaling to conservatives that he’s willing to tell backers of the health law that he wants to cut it. [...]
Reed, on a conference call organized by the Democratic National Committee after Romney’s speech, accused Romney of staging a “political stunt” that was aimed more at Republicans who weren’t in the room.
“He wasn’t speaking to the NAACP audience at all,” Reed said. “To his base it will make him look strong, but he never stands up to anybody else.”
Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter added that “black folks are not going to sit there and listen to some of that nonsense” and said that the episode was comparable to the optics of a video showing Romney speaking to black schoolchildren in Philadelphia.
If nothing else, Romney has demonstrated how so many American blacks are willing to betray the work of the Civil Rights movement in order to be taken care of by Master in the Big White House.
