Time to Boycott the RNC

I have a great friend that is one of the most astute political minds I know. He blogs at Bloviating Zeppelin, and last night we had a rather long discussion about the following story.

I would be interested in your thoughts on the matter of cutting off ALL donations to the GOP and RNC.

Time to Boycott the RNC

By Alicia Colon

Throughout the 2012 election, I kept receiving mail from the Republican National Committee urging me to send in a donation for what was probably the most important election of our lives.

I ignored the entreaties and instead gave what I could to individual campaigns and ignored the RNC because it is totally clueless when it comes to winning elections. What worked in 2010 to win the House was ignored this year because the RNC is full of the establishment GOP that lives in an elitist bubble ignoring the fact that the Democrat Party has community organizers trained by Saul Alinsky.

The Republicans do not have community organizers because they only operate in areas that support their issues. They avoid the communities that Romney called the 47% because they consider it a waste of resources and energy. The Democratic Party knows how to stretch that 47% to a majority come Election Day and they do this by organizing and by sheer fraud. This is why Democrats promote liberal voting protocols like early voting and same day registration while objecting to voter ID laws and updating registration lists. As long as these voting accommodations remain in place, Republicans will lose in tight races.

Meanwhile, the liberals in Congress and the media continue to apply Alinsky’s rules for radicals by shouting racism and sexism at Republicans whenever they can. One can always tell when the liberals have no way to refute the truth when they bring up the race card.

Consider the attacks on those critics of Ambassador Susan Rice for her misleading statements on Benghazi incident:

On the Chris Matthews show, Richard Wolffe, who was recently named the vice president and executive editor of MSNBC’s revamped website, UN Ambassador Susan Rice and Attorney General Eric Holder have faced criticism recently because they’re black.

Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) accused Republicans (McCain and Graham) of using racial ‘code words’ when they criticized Rice as being incompetent. One is also not to say that Obama is ‘lazy’ because that too is a racial code word.

Linda Martin Alcoff, a CUNY philosophy professor, warned that white people were about to launch a race war against Hispanics. She argued that changes in demographics were causing white people to lose their political power to the rising Latino population.

Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz said the Republican Party “got whiter and more male” while the Democratic caucus is “majority minority and female.”

This, of course, is nothing new, just liberal politics as usual and any attempt to debunk their arguments is futile.

One of the most highly educated, competent and talented women, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, was pilloried in the left stream media with cartoons calling her, “Bush’s house nigga” and Aunt Jemima but since she was a Republican no media uproar followed.

Recently on the Sean Hannity Fox show a panel of black conservatives refuted those charges but here’s a clue to the clueless RNC. The 47% doesn’t watch that show. In fact most refuse to watch Fox News channel because they’re not interested in fair and balanced news. They don’t listen to Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin or any of the conservative radio hosts. Their radio if they listen at all is set on WBAI or an FM music station. They do not read National Review, The Weekly Standard or if they do go online will not log on to conservative websites. They may be on Twitter following celebrities like Alec Baldwin, Bill Maher or Jon Stewart.

In the social service offices, the TV sets are tuned to MSNBC or CNN not Fox or the Fox Business channel because the state of the economy is not of priority interest to them. What the RNC does not seem to understand is that there are Democrats who will never vote for a Republican, my relatives are among them. The sad fact is that the RNC has no interest in changing their minds.

Much was made about the viral video of the Obama supporter urging us to keep him in office because he gives out phones. When Romney gave a post-election speech claiming that Obama gave out ‘gifts’, he was castigated by both the liberals and the GOP establishment but he was right. Until the GOP makes an effort to find out why it is despised by so many Americans, disappointing election results will be the same.

Getting to understand the Obama ‘phone’ crowd does not mean the party’s principles have to be sacrificed but it will show them that at least Republicans are interested in their lives. Instead of having focus groups to find out how the middle class feels about candidates and issues why not have town hall meetings organized by inner city community churches and social clubs? How about spending some money in that community hiring help to cater and to secure these events?

Instead of depending on a tech voting program like Orca that can be easily sabotaged, why haven’t they invested in human beings? Democrats pay their ‘volunteer’ community organizers. The RNC collects millions but they have no idea how to spend it. How about spending it finding out from people like that phone woman why they hate the Republicans?

They hate us because they do not know who we are. We have allowed others to tell our history and to distort it.

The Republicans have many outstanding people of color to reach out and convey the history and principles of the GOP in their communities. Unfortunately these individuals do not rank high in the upper echelons of the RNC and that is why throwing money at it to continue the cluelessness is a waste.

The GOP needs people like Alfonzo Rachel of PJMedia’s Zonation to speak for the party. Watch his YouTube videos where he demonstrates that he knows more about the history of the party than the RNC which refuses to get back to its basics. He equates how the Democrats rationalized slavery and is now equating abortion with it by not considering blacks or fetuses to be human.

ET Williams of Common Sense Nation also has posted many illuminating videos on YouTube which I doubt the establishment GOP has ever watched.

For heaven’s sake, in Lincoln’s time, the GOP had brave radicals fighting against slavery. They were fighting a Democratic Party which founded the KKK yet most blacks and Hispanics believe that it is the party of civil rights and the GOP is against them.

Why have the Republicans allowed this utter canard on its record to exist?

So until the RNC stands for the Radical National Committee and starts correcting the history of its origin and long battle for civil rights, I won’t be sending them a single penny again.

Irish Examiner USA: Time To Boycott The RNC

Perhaps it IS time to teach the GOP a lesson, but I fear it is already too late.

My gripe with the GOP/RNC isn’t over any accusations of RACE or lack of response to those that make such claims, my gripe with the GOP/RNC is that I honestly feel like they have lost their way, turned their back on reality and expect the American voter to accept them and whatever candidate they offer up simply *because*.

No longer my friends, the GOP/RNC are OFF of MY support list, at least on a national level, and quite frankly, even GOP on the state level is going to have to EARN my money from now on.

    Any political party that loses to an Islamo/Marxist twice in a row derserves no support. They are part of the problem, not the solution. Obama and his cohorts are 180 degrees out from the beliefs of the founding fathers and the GOP could not convey that message. They produce nothing but losers with no balls. I truly question their loyalty to the Republic as founded.

  2. PatriotUSA says:

    I already have. The RP is DEAD to me and our Republic.

    I have let them know how they feel and of course, no one from the RP has responded and no one is going to.

    WE are watchers from the walls of Jerusalem and we will need to become patriot warriors, perhaps much sooner than later.

  3. Longstreet says:

    It is my opinion that the Republican Party is dead … period and cannot be resuscitated. We tried in 2010 when we sent a transfusion of new conservative blood to the US House. The GOP leadership bottled them up and silenced them, for all practical purposes, anyway. If you noticed recently, all the new chairmen of the various House committees are still,in the hands of the moderates, liberals and RINOs. Not a single conservative was named as a committee chairman — NOT ONE!

    Exactly one week to the day, after the election, I left the Republican Party and became an Independent. I’d been a republican for over 50 years. I figured half a century was time enough for the GOP to straighten itself out. They didn’t — and they won’t.

    They’ve lost me, money, time, effort, and energy.

    If the blue bloods and the social elite and the country club set want the party to themselves, then so be it. In my opinion, the GOP has become a subsidiary of the Democratic Party … and the RNC seems quite happy with the arrangement.

    We desperately need another conservative party. A viable party. A party that will offer more than just “TOKEN” opposition to the democrats. If that happens it will be years down the road. I suspect there won’t be enough real “America” by that time to waste our time attempting to save.

  4. We’ve had the Republican and Democratic Parties for well over a century now.

    But Parties die as they become irrelevant.

    Has the GOP reached the point of irrelevance? Maybe.

    But I’m about to type in something that will likely piss off many here….Just as political parties become irrelevant, so do ideologies.

    Conservatism, to which I clearly subscribe, is no longer the will of most who vote in elections. In my view, THAT is the horrendous truth.

    I feel as if I’m a dying dinosaur. Even as I look around at many of my friends who call themselves political conservatives, I see these same people spouting socialistic ideas. Hell, those ideas just trip off their tongues as if what they are saying is the truth. It’s surreal!

    Socialism in America has been creeping in for about a century. People have accepted socialism! In fact, they don’t give a damn that Obama is a socialist. There’s no fire building up against that — particularly within the younger generation, so many of whom are being indoctrinated in Leftism from K through college at this very moment.

    America has become a nation of gimmes, a nation of those who think that it is their RIGHT to depend on the government. It’s disgusting. Really.

    Now, all that said, what will take to wake up enough voters to support a conservative candidate?

    I have said this before and think it is the major first step in taking back this country. Conservatives need to take back the media. The BILLIONS of dollars spent trying to get Romney elected, were wasted. Here is my idea…buy the media outlets. Surely conservatives can pool enough money to buy the NY times, buy ABC or CBS. Fox cannot do it alone. With all the magazines and newspapers going the way of the dinosaur, surely they can be gotten for a good price. Hell, maybe if the truth was printed in these rags, the numbers would rise, and profits may even be realized. The point is, make liberal/progressive media the minority like FOX is now. Then, once you take over a few of the major media outlets, fire every damn liberal reporter and hire true American journalists. The ones that GET THE STORY and do not let up until all of the hard questions have been asked. This way, instead of the underhanded BS that the liberals do that gets reported on the back page on a Friday night, it instead, makes FRONT PAGE news.

    Maybe I am wrong, but this is key to taking the country back. All that money spent getting the conservative message out cost billions of dollars. Use that money towards the purchase of media outlets. Then, by the sheer fact that everything bad that obama does becomes a REAL news story, this will do so much more than ads and commercials.

    I have to say that my Thanksgiving was somewhat awkward as there were quite a few in my family that voted improperly as far as I am concerned. These people are not bad, they are not socialists, and they really do love this country. However, they are ignorant to what is really happening. Their only source of information is what they get from the major TV stations and what they read in the newspaper or popular magazine such as newsweek, etc. If they knew what I know, they would have voted for Romney in a second. I can talk to them til I am blue in the face, and they will still vote for the guy that the local TV station or newspaer says is the good guy.

    If I had the money, I would buy them myself. Hell, maybe we can start a pool and instead of donating to the RNC and every other republican, lets all go in on a TV station. Fred can be a commentator, well get Rush to put together the programming, hire Hannity as a newsanchor, and bring in Ted Nugent to fire everyone and hire new blood, and so on. Seriously, this would do wonders. I would love to see MSNBC as the lone liberal station and all the other stations for once, reporting what is REALLY GOING ON in this country. They could like you know….report the truth, like they used to int he good old days.

    Or, I’m just an idiot and my idea sux.

      Especially note second quote…yeah ‘nother dead guy, with whom as seventish fellow, I realize I must join before too long. But Mom 92, Dad 88…I have cold fingers with quite a bit of osteoarthritis of various parts…shoulders, wrists and hands…but can still grip, slide to load and cock, manipulate that little clit called a trigger, and not dead.

      Who was conservative Paul Weyrich?(October 7, 1942 – December 18, 2008) His quotes following tell quite a bit :
      “We are different from previous generations of conservatives… We are no longer working to preserve the status quo. We are radicals, working to overturn the present power structure of this country.” – Soloma, John. Ominous Politics: The New Conservative Labyrinth (1984), Hill and Wang Publ., New York.

      “I asked [Yegor] Gaidar why it was that he thought free-market efforts in the Soviet Union were being trashed by American media when the reality was far different from what I was seeing. He replied with a stinging answer, one I never will forget. He said, ‘Well, the Soviets spent millions of dollars infiltrating your media. Just because the Soviet Union went away doesn’t mean these people have gone away. They are still there.’ Of course, I knew this.” – A Congressional Challenge Paul Weyrich. Townhall.com, September 7, 2006.

      And Gaidar was : 19 March 1956 – 16 December 2009) a Soviet and Russian economist, politician and author, and was the Acting Prime Minister of Russia from 15 June 1992 to 14 December 1992.

      This might help one to understand who is our MSM. And who is our congress as described by Allen West. And POTUS.

      Note: Weyrich died on December 18, 2008, aged 66, at Inova Fair Oaks Hospital in Fairfax, Virginia. He was at the hospital for routine tests, and the cause of death was not released. (Maybe broken heart after Nov. election of 2008 or even Breitbart Syndrome?).

      • The Unit,
        I don’t now the details of Weyrich’s death.

        But as one who has lost both friends and family members to death-by-staph at Fairfax Inova Hospital, I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Weyrich died of a staph infection. Just sayin’.

    • BobF says:

      That’s an excellent point: Take back the media.

      Just say, conservatives all over the nation bought one share of Comcast stock. Comcast has majority ownership of NBC Universal. Say all said conservatives gave voting proxy to one strong conservative, who don’t take crap from anyone, like hour host Fred. Conservatives by their their voting proxy would run NBC Universal and could throw Chris Matthews whine tingles up his leg butt out on the street. Even if it couldn’t be done, just think of the scare it would give their, and other liberal media outlets, board of directors.

  6. mrchuck says:

    I vote republican, even though I am truly a conservative.
    A take no prisoners believer in our Constitution!!!!
    If only the libertarian party had someone like Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Bobbie Jindal, Jeb Hensarling, Then that would be my party.
    The old fuddy duddy republicans will never win. These old fuddy’s like McCain have ruined the party.
    So, a new party name is needed!!!!!
    Let me know when one is named!

  7. First, thanks for the Linkulus, Fred.

    Second, the party that listens to its across-the-aisle opposition for hints on how to “re-create itself” appropriately is that party which will extinguish itself.

    • TexasFred says:

      1. You are link worthy.. :)

      2. There is little, if ANY difference in the 2 major parties now, and I am seriously afraid that the whole damned lot of them are going to *throw in* together, rape America and wander off to parts unknown…

  8. Cary says:

    It used to be called “reaching across the aisle” – now, they don’t even bother giving us a reach-around.

    Yes, time for a new party, but not like the old party. The first leader of the new party that says “Let’s do this like the republicans” gets shot before they finish saying the last word.

  9. Bob Mack says:

    Why donate time & money to an organization whose policy is to shoot their finest in the back & leave ‘em lying on the field of battle?

  10. Top John says:

    The GOP is no longer relevant because the majority of voting Americans are either idiots, or parasites. The idiots simply buy whatever the television tells them to buy, while the parasites have decided that they will vote for the biggest handout (free cheese, as a wise blogger is fond of saying).

  11. Darthur says:

    At one time, I was proud to be called a Republican, but not now! Rhino’s have made sure the entire party has moved over to the Democrat side and I’m SICK of it! The RNC/GOP are NOT hearing us on purpose….they haven’t done a THING to help when it came to fighting for the party. What’s his name…Reince Priebus (?) is a chicken and all he wants is the paycheck that comes with being the head of the RNC. He did a sorry job if you ask me, and I didn’t like the fact that one candidate, who I thought was a set up anyway, was thrust down our throats early in the entire electoral process. I may be the only one who thought this and actually, I don’t care…but I thought Newt was the man who would have helped our country get back on track more than any of the other candidates. I only voted for Romney after the RNC/GOP and Romney had acted just as Bozo did to Romney in order to win! In my eyes, we lost the last Reaganesque Conservative when all went against Newt.

  12. BobF says:

    Even in the time of Booker T. Washington, they had their Jesse Jackson’s and Al Shaprton’s.

    In today’s America, Booker T. Washington would be castigated along with Clarance Thomas, Allen West, and Condi. What the overwhelming majority of Blacks today don’t know is that Martin Luther King was a Republican and it was Democrat Administrations which hounded and harassed him.

  13. Katie says:

    I think you have it wrong Fred. It is not ignoring the RNC, but taking back the party from the ground level. Heck forget national politics (Word from the Greek: poli meaning many, tics meaning blood suckers.), but work towards local and state offices. We need to take control of every Secretary of State for all 50 states. The Democrats discovered that trick in 2000 with Bush v. Gore and we saw the result of their plan this last November.

    We need to take back the local governments. The county councils. The city or town councils. School boards. You get the idea. I am looking into running for school board here in my town. What about you Fred? Any idea of running for office? You can make a difference there.

    All politics are local was taught to the American people by Tip O’Neill. And he was correct.

    Let us take back the local parties, local townships, local councils and then look higher.

    Just my 2 cents.

    • TexasFred says:

      Fully agreed Katie, and I work very hard on the local level in our political arena… As far as running, I would like to run for City Council next year but I just can’t afford to do it… It takes $3-4K to run a decent local election and I am on a fixed income… Our Mayor is a very good and close friend and I know when he ran that he got 1 donation to his campaign, a $20 donation from a Texas redneck blogger that you all know and love.. :P

      Seriously, he got NO donations, other than mine.. It’s a damned good thing he ended up running unopposed…

      • Katie says:

        if I had the money I’d spot you. We need to fund a PAC that will help local folk get involved. It is about time that the good folk of an area get elected and the crooked politicians out.

  14. Bunkerville says:

    I have pretty much had it when the GOP Redistricted Allen west out of the congress. That said, we have made great strides in local elections in my area. Our state as well. No thanks to national.
