Yes, the Negroes down in Mississippi have pissed off Rush Limbaugh and his posse of Demo criticizing rough riders. Its funny how Rush and his old guard bait and switch when the agenda isn't self-serving or self-rewarding.
Rush says those voting Negroes in Mississippi are Uncle Toms for showing out to help Senator Thad Cochran (R) Miss. win his primary contest against Tea Party endorsed challenger Chris McDaniel.
Here's the thing when you get down to the nitty gritty.
Neither Thad nor Chris can be considered 100% Negro friendly.
Long-time Senator Thad Cochran goes way back and has some relationships with some older Negroes that weigh two evils and are inclined to go with the lesser of the two than to be left empty handed. You see Thad is on record as not being too sympathetic when it comes to lynching. He is same guy who refused to vote for a resolution apologizing for the senate not passing anti-lynching laws and explained his reluctance to do so this way.
"I'm not in the business of apologizing for what someone else did or didn't do," he told me."I deplore and regret that lynching occurred and that those committing them weren't punished, but I'm not culpable."Cochran might could get away with distancing himself from the deeds of his past ancestors except he did sign off on forgiving some ills perpetrated against two other ethnic groups. He co- sponsored bills apologizing for the government's treatment of Native Americans and for the World War II internment of Japanese-Americans. He just couldn't bring himself to do it for the Negroes.
And Chris McDaniel. Well he is an outspoken opponent of ObamaCare, which is God send and Democratic milestone for a lot of Democrats. McDaniels once publicly blamed gun violence on the Hip Hop Culture. The New York Times has a piece in which McDaniel wonders aloud how someone who doesn’t speak much Spanish could pick up a woman in Mexico, during which he refers to “mamacitas.” He has also suggested he would rather move to Mexico than pay reparations for slavery. In short McDaniel doubled down on pissing off two key voting demographics; Hispanics and Blacks. For conservative Black Dems this looked like a damned if we vote damned if we don't situation. They did the math and found Cochran as the lesser of two evils.
Cochran smelled crossover and temporary desertion in the air. He went old-school employing an unusual strategy in the runoff; he embraced black voters, the vast majority of whom are Democrats. The Democratic voters in general, who feared McDaniel would do damage if he emerged victorious in November. And the strategy worked.
As for Rush Limbaugh and this Uncle Tom thing he just better hope those so called "Toms" don't decided to rally more "Dicks and Harrys" in upcoming congressional elections. If they do then all the money in the world can't ward of a Dem controlled House and Senate.
In the tune of the TV show Cops' jingle
"Whatcha gon do Whatcha go do
When they come for you
Repubs, Tea Party
Whatcha gon do when the Dems come for you?"
