Stop the presses! New York Times discovers slew of self-loathing black Republicans running for office!

Lt. Col. Allen West

The brilliant, charismatic former army Lt. Col. Allen West is running for Congress as a Republican in Florida's 22nd District.

We made up the “self-loathing” part, but you just know it probably got edited out of the New York Times story on black Republican candidates at the very last minute. It’s just the way liberals think.

The Times has the painful story of changing times:

Among the many reverberations of President Obama’s election, here is one he probably never anticipated: at least 32 African-Americans are running for Congress this year as Republicans, the biggest surge since Reconstruction, according to party officials.

The House has not had a black Republican since 2003, when J. C. Watts of Oklahoma left after eight years.

But now black Republicans are running across the country — from a largely white swath of beach communities in Florida to the suburbs of Phoenix, where an African-American candidate has raised more money than all but two of his nine (white) Republican competitors in the primary.

Party officials and the candidates themselves acknowledge that they still have uphill fights in both the primaries and the general elections, but they say that black Republicans are running with a confidence they have never had before. They credit the marriage of two factors: dissatisfaction with the Obama administration, and the proof, as provided by Mr. Obama, that blacks can get elected.

“I ran in 2008 and raised half a million dollars, and the state party didn’t support me and the national party didn’t support me,” said Allen West, who is running for Congress in Florida and is one of roughly five black candidates the party believes could win. “But we came back and we’re running and things are looking great.”

But interviews with many of the candidates suggest that they felt empowered by Mr. Obama’s election, that it made them realize that what had once seemed impossible — for a black candidate to win election with substantial white support — was not.

The New York Times is shocked – shocked, we tell you – that a black man could be a conservative and even more shocked that racist white conservatives would vote for him.

Come November, let’s see if they report that white Democrat voters are racist for voting against those black conservatives.

We won’t hold our breath.

Doing 20 years in the US Navy I worked with all kinds of people. I learned by experience that you don’t judge by the packaging, you judge by the contents. I’d vote for someone that was purple with pink polka-dots if they were a person of honesty and integrity, and who would work to return America to the constitutional Republic as envisioned by the Founding Fathers.

The NYT is manned by pastey white effeminate liberal metro males.

It is so obvious that organizations like the NYT’s which sold it’s soul to progressives a long time ago want conservatives to be “violent” and “racist” because otherwise all their text describing conservatives this way is wasted.

One more reason why “I Hate the Media”

The NYT should get their head out of their liberal a-hole. I find it funny that the one’s who aren’t suppsed to be racists often are more racists than the people they purport to be racists.

/sarcasm on/ When the real racists (Sharpton, Jackson, et al) get wind of this, these black republicans will get their comeuppance! How dare they collude with the worst creature to ever walk the earth – white conservatives! /sarcasm off/ No doubt the slurs will become as thick as molasses on a cold winter’s day.

Do we get to start drinking shots for every “Uncle Tom” reference? If we do, there are going to be a lot of impaired Conservatives out here. What happens when a black lesbian runs as an R?
