Disband the Congressional Black Caucus

Roger L. Simon makes the argument:

Nothing is worse for Black Americans, African-Americans, Afro-Americans, soul brothers and sisters, people of color, non-ofays, or whatever you choose to call that particular minority segment of our society than the Congressional Black Caucus…

…We’re in the era of Herman Cain, people, not Maxine Waters, Jesse Jackson, the stultifying Travis Smiley, or that man who has put a generation of Harvard and Princeton students into perpetual narcoleptic sleep — Dr. Cornel West.

And while we’re at it, all other caucuses based on race, religion, creed, or national origin should be put out to pasture along with it. Such groupings are so reactionary and self-destructive they make your eyes roll back in your head, collide with each other, and shoot out again like pinballs, destroying half your brain from the cerebellum to the medulla oblongata in the process. They divide us and help no one. They have no justification any more, if they ever did.

Racism is dead. Or as dead as it’s ever going to be…

Groups like the CBC, though, get to feast on un-earned power and wealth by playing the race card.  That is all it is really about.  If the people in the CBC cared about black Americans then, quite simply, people like Maxine Waters and Charlie Rangel would not be members.  An organization which had in mind doing good things for others rather than doing well for themselves would have expelled such people.  Race-baiting is good business…just ask people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

At the very minimum, groups like the Congressional Black Caucus should be afforded no funding or facilities by the United States government.  If they want to live on private donations and hold their meetings in private facilities, that it their business.  But a government of all the people of the United States should not permit a specifically race-based organization to have any semblance of official sanction.  To put it in to perspective – supposed someone decided to create the Congressional Catholic Caucus?

Racism has no place in America…whether its for oppression or for con jobs.

    As long as they can create victims, and the victims are willing to play along, they can always count on power and money. It’s a real simple equation.

    The CBC is the most oppressive political group for the black community in America. They only have power if they can keep black Americans in the lower class of wage earners.

    Any group that segregates based on skin color should be illegal. That includes the CBC, BET or the KKK.

    The list is long but how could Simon leave out Harvard’s “Dr.” Henry Louis Gates, most famous for the “beer summit” with Obama?

        PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Thousands of Philadelphia residents gathered in long lines, citywide, waiting hours outside of 12 County Assistance Offices, hoping to apply for relief following Hurricane Irene.

        The residents, many confused and lacking official information, hoped to receive a month of food stamps for food ruined by floods and power problems caused by the hurricane.

        they are openly calling for rebellion.

    I just recently discovered this blog, although I comment on a couple other conservative blogs. I’m curious if there are any Independents who comment here who voted for Obama in 2008 who are anxious to vote for him again next year. If so, what has he done (or promised to do that he hasn’t yet accomplished) that makes you think he deserves another 4 years?

    I’ll tell you where I’m coming from. As I previously mentioned, I recently moved from a really red-neck area of rural Idaho to a suburb of Boise. Quite frankly, I expected to run into a lot of moderate, independents who were proud to have voted for the first black president. I’ve met a couple such people, but, by and large, I’m met folks who are itching for the fight that the liberals, particularly the unions, seem bent on starting. I’m also encountering a really strange phenomenon in that most everyone I talk to seems to be in favor of letting Obama win and whatever social upheaval that results in, rather than electing an establishment Repub.

    I’d love to hear your thoughts.

        From where I stand, and yes I know I will be attacked for this, I see no difference that matters between bams and establishment repubs such as romney.

        Both are progressives and will work to advance the progressive agenda. They just have different letters after thier names. The results will be the same. More big government and the loss of freedom.

        DAMN YOU….

        Oh Wait……..I agree.

        It’s pretty clear that I’m talking to folks like Green Mountain Boy. I think you owe him an apology.

        I am a graduate of Boise State (greatest college football team on turf), and spent several years there, and I have no idea why you thought you would find more moderates in Boise. Boise is a great town comprised of hard working, independent minded entrepreneurs, and I miss the area quite honestly. Have you been to McCall? If not, definitely get there.

      • RetiredSpook September 28, 2011 / 5:54 pm


        With Manning out for the season (many think his career is over), there’s a lot of talk in Indiana that Boise State’s QB, Kellen Moore might be the Colts’ #1 draft pick if they get the chance.

      • J. R. Babcock September 28, 2011 / 6:07 pm


        Yeah, been to McCall many times. Used to ski at Brundage when I was a kid.

      • Cluster September 28, 2011 / 6:18 pm


        I hope Moore can make it in the pro’s. He’s a hell of a kid, and has a great arm, but might be a little too slow for the pro’s , I hope he gets his chance though.


        Brundage is a great hill, (I use to have a season pass) and then burgers and brews at the McCall Brewing Co., or Lardo’s afterwards, are they still around?

      • neocon1 September 29, 2011 / 8:02 am


        that most everyone I talk to

        Sooooo the only person you talk to is GMB?
        you made it sound you had a real life and talked to MANY.

        No apology needed to GMB as I agree with him, yet I have NEVER seen or heard him say he wanted 4 more years of the POS in the white painted house.
        he, we, just do not want a mcLame 2 for our choice we are done holding our noses to vote for the least leftist marxist big spender.

    Neo owes me an apology? Why?

    • J. R. Babcock September 28, 2011 / 7:25 pm


      See my comment at 2:01, Neocon’s reply at 3:13, and your comment at 3:32. The folks around here have had it with establishment Repubs.

  7. J. R. Babcock September 28, 2011 / 7:27 pm


    I haven’t been to McCall in nearly 4 years. Lardos and McCall Brewing were still around then.

  8. Green Mountain Boy September 28, 2011 / 7:38 pm

    Ok, Neo, you better apologize, for something, anything, If you don’t I will turn you into attackwatch. I already tried to turn you into to crime stoppers, but they said they were out of reward money until december. 😛

    • J. R. Babcock September 28, 2011 / 8:06 pm


      I owe you an apology as well for my “fringe” comment yesterday. After your somewhat cryptic reply, I looked back through the archives at a few of your comments. Had I known you were a Mennonite, I would not have said what I said. Not the first time I’ve stuck my foot in my mouth, unfortunately.

      • Green Mountain Boy September 28, 2011 / 8:13 pm

        J.R. Don’t worry about it. It’s no big deal. I am on the fringe and I like it here. I didn’t even notice anything. So, peace all around. 🙂

        Stick around and get to know everybody. I think just about everybody brings something to table here.

    • neocon1 September 29, 2011 / 8:06 am


      sniff sniff, weeep,
      I ahem, will (like a good GOP) apologize for nothing, to everyone, and will resign my post because, sniff sniff I feeel soooo bad about the fact I may have offended someone, somewhere,(wringing hands, sweating) about nothing…….


      • Green Mountain Boy September 29, 2011 / 8:15 am

        Neo, I think it’s just miscommunication. If I have said anything to offend you I apologize. Nothing was intended. If I had any position to resign from I would.

        I truly do not even know.

  9. dbschmidt September 28, 2011 / 8:32 pm

    I have a feeling that there are more on all sides of the fence (never understood independents) that agree with GMB than disagree. I am tired of our government not following the Constitutional standards that founded this country no matter what designation you have chosen in order to to rob us of wealth and liberty.

    There should be no hyphenated-Americans if they are Americans. If you want to hyphenate as Cuban-American, Mexican-American, African-American, I fully believe we could use some of the Federal dollars to strip you of everything you have thanks to America and ship you off to your chosen destination. I am not a German, Austrian, English-American–I am an American. Let us start with Micheal Moore who thinks the greatest place on earth has made us all down-trodden. I would be happy to punt his fat ass back to Canada with nothing and then he might have a gripe.

    Finally, independents are the weak minded of the club–they have no base for their beliefs and float with the wind. There are two major politic parties in the US system plus Libertarians (of which I am one), Green (yeah, right) and the independents who can not decide what they believe. Hell, the Liberals have no firm base in what they believe so what is one more–I reckon.

        : Cain: Black community ‘brainwashed’ into voting for Dems
        By: CNN’s Kevin Liptak

        Washington (CNN) – The one African-American running for the GOP presidential nomination said Wednesday the black community was ‘brainwashed’ for traditionally siding with liberal politicians.

        “African-Americans have been brainwashed into not being open minded, not even considering a conservative point of view,” Godfather’s Pizza executive Herman Cain said on CNN’s “The Situation Room” in an interview airing Wednesday between 5-7 p.m. ET. “I have received some of that same vitriol simply because I am running for the Republican nomination as a conservative. So it’s just brainwashing and people not being open minded, pure and simple.”
