I just don't understand why the Negroes won't vote Republican...
It IS a puzzlement. I'm sure that some whitey rightie will come along and tell us all about the Democrat 'plantation' and/or how black voters aren't smart enough to vote GOP.........................

Arizona state Sen. Wendy Rogers (R-AZ) retweeted white nationalist Scott Greer on Monday calling for celebrating Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.

Greers’ call to celebrate Confederate generals came on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, in an apparent message to his supporters that he believes in the tenants of the Confederacy over those the slain civil rights leader.

Rogers retweeted the controversial message just days after she spoke at former President Donald Trump’s rally in Florence, Arizona.

“Arizona is a red state,” Rogers declared during the rally. “We are not turning purple.”

The Arizona lawmaker, who has embraced the QAnon conspiracy theory and pushed allegations that the 2020 presidential election was stolen, also led the crowd in chanting “decertify” during the rally.

Rogers, a freshman legislator who is running for re-election, announced last week that she raised an eye-popping $2.5 million in 2021.

No stranger to controversy the former Air Force pilot and die-hard Trump supporter has previously shared posts from notorious white nationalist and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes.

It is amazing how folks wonder why black folks don't support the Grand Ole Party.
Yeah. This kind of stuff is not good.

Ms Rogers is apparently trying to throw red meat (as it were) to her constituents, but to do so she's deliberately triggering 50% of the country with an offensive symbol that evokes pain and outrage, and that's not cool. Not cool at all.

Unfortunately that seems to be the nature of the partisan gladiator match these days. The more you can offend the other side, the more brownie points you score with your own.

This to me seems exactly like the transgender-in-kindergarten issue we were discussing in other thread.

It's like, you want to throw that stuff in my face? You want to deliberately trigger me because of your stupid political morality? Well fine, I'm triggered. Bam. That's what happens, right?

My political message to both combatants is, I don't need your morality. Don't even want it. I have a value system of my own, and I don't need yours.

Like, "stay out of my face with that crap", right?

My personal opinion is, racism will always be around, it's impossible to legislate it away. But the idea that it should be socially acceptable is... well... not cool.

I can't stop you if you want to get with your beer drinking buddies and trade racist jokes, but if you leave your living room you're asking for trouble.

Anyway, my two pennies

If the GOP offered anything of real value, they'd probably get votes.

But they don't. Their main message is 'our way or the highway". They tell minorities, if you fit into our corporate structure you can succeed. And some do. Kenneth Chennault from AmEx comes to mind. But this path is not appealing or exciting or even interesting to a lot of people. Personally I want to be Quincy Jones, I couldn't care less about AmEx lol.

Well... at the risk of opening up a can of worms, I'll say I'm more a Malcolm X fan than an MLK fan. Although I like them both. But Malcolm had a resonant message. Independence, as distinct from dependence. It's a tall order, I get it. But IMO that should be the goal. Everyone benefits that way.

Well they were Americans. I guess you were never educated that Confederates were pardoned.
