"Selling Stupid" Comes To An End In Politics

  • Public

The Black Man That Changed A Racist Party

When Barack Obama won his second term in office he also started a revolution. A revolution that will probably force recognition by White Racists primarily in the Republican party that he is for real, and that the browning of America is for real. It is a recognition that stupid nonsensical racist based policies, statements and actions will no longer sell in the United States on a national scale. "Selling Stupid" in politics has hopefully come to an end.

For some time now the Republican party has related primarily to two main interest groups, racists and stupid people. There are indeed a few Republicans who support the party for some substantive ideals. But the major interest groups backing the Party has for some time been mainly racists and stupid people. They allowed themselves to be sold a bill of goods that only stupidity and racism could blind them enough to buy.

The stupidity and racism got so bad during the first Obama presidential term that any reasonable, objective observer had to be amazed that a national party in 2012 would so overtly conduct themselves in the manner they did. Even more puzzling is the fact that they would have so many followers blindly following them. This is why it is obvious to any who would want to look, that the current Republican party's largest support groups have to be racists and stupid people. On the other side the Democratic party had major interest groups such as Blacks, Hispanics, Asians and various non-ethnically based interest groups supporting it on many other substantive issues.

President Obama's convincing second term win appears to have been the slap in the face that should wake up most of the stupid followers. The racists will probably take more time.
