social network for conservatives
Ever since the passing of the Great Society entitlement programs during the presidency of Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964, the Democratic party has taken votes by African Americans for granted. In 2008, 95 percent of African Americans voted for Barack Obama. It is doubtful that President Obama will be able to repeat in acquiring such a large percentage of votes from African American voters in 2012. Although the mainstream media refuses to report it, the tide is slowly turning toward conservatism in the black community, as more and more black patriots are wising up and rising up against the decades old Democrat con job. In a recent opinion column at The Daily Caller, Yates Walker wrote about former NAACP chapter president Rev. C.L. Bryant, who calls himself a “runaway slave,” which he defines as “persons, historically or presently, courageous enough to say no to the master’s housing, his food, or his direction, courageous enough to find the blessings of liberty for themselves.” Recently Reverend Bryant helped whip up conservatives into a frenzy at the "Restoring Freedom" event hosted by FreedomWorks. He spoke of his grandfather

during the speech. He relayed that his grandfather told him, "Son, I didn't go through all that I went through so that you could BE BLACK, I went through everything that I went through so that you could BE FREE." It is in this spirit of freedom and courage that other black Americans are flourishing and speaking out. According to Yates Walker September 5th column in The Daily Caller, C.L. Bryant isn't the only black patriot making noise. He noted that black conservatives such as Michael McNeely and K. Carl Smith have blossomed liberty and conservatism with fervor. He quoted McNeely, who is chairman of the Georgia black Republicans when he posed the question, "For so long blacks have been counted as a 'sure thing' come election day for Democrats, but what have we gotten in return?

"The goal of our advertising campaign is to issue a wake-up call to the African American community in North Carolina that President Obama does not represent the values that they have fought hard to protect," said National Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown. He also added, "We urge all North Carolinians to join Dr. Wooden in rejecting the anti-family policies of President Obama this November." This advertisement comes on the heels of a statement of non-support by the Coalition of African American Pastors under the leadership of Reverend William Owens.

The courageous stand taken by Dr. Wooden, the National Organization for Marriage, Reverend Owens, and the Coalition of African-American Pastors is in direct opposition to the religious intolerance exhibited by the mayors of Chicago, Boston, and Washington, D.C. These men of God have elected to stand for God's righteousness rather than blindly voting on the basis of race. According to Peter Kirsanow at The National Review Online "on the national level, Democrats typically get around 90 percent of the black vote, even when a black man isn’t running for president as a Democrat. Al Gore got 92 percent of the black vote in 2000; John Kerry got 88 percent in 2004", which like it or not, suggests an almost blind allegiance of the African-American community to the Democratic party even though according to Russ Paelli at russp.us, that "the historic Civil Rights Act of 1964 was supported by a higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats in both houses of Congress. In the House, 80 percent of the Republicans and 63 percent of the Democrats voted in favor. In the Senate, 82 percent of the Republicans and 69 percent of the Democrats voted for it."
However, it looks like history is changing and if brave black men like Reverends C.L. Bryant, Patrick Wooden, and William Owens, founder of the Frederick Douglas Republicans: K. Carl Smith, and chairman of the Georgia black Republicans Michael McNeely have anything to say about it, then the African American community may take a hard shift to the right in remarkably short period of time.
