‘IF A BLACK CONSERVATIVE SHOUTS IN THE NBC NEWS FOREST, DOES ANYBODY HEAR?’
These people are a figment of your imagination
Remember the last presidential election in Iraq under Saddam Hussein? It was a nail-biter. Saddam won: 100% – 0%. As unbelievable as that seems, it’s happened again – right here in the good ol’ U.S. of A. Yep, according to a poll conducted for NBC/WSJ, zero percent of blacks in America support Mitt Romney. Not 5% – or even 1%. 0%. Zilch. Zip. Squat. Amazing, huh?
So, the question arises: In order for 100% of the findings of this poll to be correct, 100% of the polling data needs to be correct, right? (Even if we assume Romney is supported by less than .005 blacks and the number was rounded down.) Therefore, we shouldn’t be able to find any black supporters of Mitt, right?
Being the superb investigative conservative political blogger that I am, guess what? I found some. After the poll’s findings were released, Twitter and Facebook were abuzz with comments from – wait for it – black conservatives! A sampling:
I hesitate to bust out the “R” word – given that we’re accused of it from the Left on a daily basis, (just yesterday for me, in fact), but is it not racism to virtually ignore the existence of a group of blacks – simply because they’re conservative? Is it not racist to relegate them to zero in a nationally-conducted poll? Doesn’t it say, “You don’t exist, and even if you do, you don’t matter – you’re zero.”? This non-existent black conservative said it best:
Listen, I’m not suggesting that Mitt Romney will get anywhere near 10% of the black vote; as I’ve said before, O could declare himself a communist, paint the White House black and set George Bush on fire, and his support among blacks would “plummet” to 85%. What I am saying is this: For generations, blacks have sought an “equal voice” – an opportunity to “just be heard.” Apparently this only applies to liberal blacks. After all, if you’re black and conservative in liberal America – you’re zero.
Come to think of it, if you’re black and conservative in liberal America, you’re worse than zero; you’re a traitor.
