Democrats Getting Training In Playing The Race Card
All I can say is wow:
House Democrats received training this week on how to address the issue of race to defend government programs, according to training materials obtained by The Washington Examiner.
The prepared content of a Tuesday presentation to the House Democratic Caucus and staff indicates that Democrats will seek to portray apparently neutral free-market rhetoric as being charged with racial bias, conscious or unconscious.
According to this so-called expert (expert at getting lefties to pony up money, probably), just about anything can be racially charged:
But the threshold for what constitutes racially charged messaging is not always so high. One of Santorum’s cited comments was: “Give them more food stamps, give them more Medicaid is the administration’s approach, rather than creating jobs.” She also cited this comment from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., about raising taxes to fund government programs: “I’ve never believed that you go raise taxes on those that are paying in, taking from them, so that you just hand out and give them to someone else.”
Now, maybe I’m just a poor benighted conservative neanderthal, but neither of those statements above seems really that racially charged, because there are plenty of white people that get food stamps, Medicaid, and other benefits paid for by our taxes.
So when the Democrats start with the race-card talking points, remember, they were all trained to do it as part of their campaigns.
