The CPAC Hits Keep on Comin’: Black Man Tossed Out After Wingnut Screams at Him, ‘Race Doesn’t Matter’

CPAC has a little problem with racism
Wingnuts • Views: 23,829

Another graphic example of the right wing’s “minority outreach:” CPAC: Black Man Tossed Out After Breitbart Hack Screams at Him ‘Race Doesn’t Matter’.

In this video from CPAC, a black man seems like he sincerely interested in helping find a way for conservatives to appeal to other African Americans, but then he suddenly gets screamed on by a white guy who insists that “race doesn’t matter.” Which in short, summarizes why the Republicans continually lose the vote of any group that doesn’t have white skin. Here is a partial transcript:

Black guy: “Recruit us.”

White guy: “So?”

Black guy: “What’s wrong with the message?”

White guy: “Why didn’t you go out and look?”

Black guy: “What’s wrong with the message? How many?” (Holding up five fingers on one hand)

White guy: “I don’t count?!?!”

Black guy: “It matters.”

White guy: “I don’t ask people what their . . ?”

Black guy: “It matters because.”

White guy: ((unintelligible))

Black guy: “I do. Cause race matters.”

White guy: “No it doesn’t!!! You’re an American! You’re not a black person! You’re an American! I didn’t go in and count all the Jews?”

The white guy continues to scream at the black guy, and doesn’t get asked to leave. The black guy gets asked to leave. There’s a shocker.

I just checked the LA Times website and I don’t think any of this really happened. I mean, they’d at least have one little story about it, right? But no, not a word. They did mention Romney, though.

None of the Tribune papers are especially that great, especially after the Zell regime. The local rag runs Glenn “Bigot” McCoy editorial cartoons.

Update: A spokesman for the Tea Party Patriots, Jameson Cunningham, e-mailed me a statement from K. Carl Smith on the above events. Here’s the full text.

I was invited by the Tea Party Patriots to conduct a breakout session entitled: “Trump The Race Card” and share the Frederick Douglass Republican Message. In the middle of my delivery, while discussing the 1848 “Women’s Rights Convention,” I was rudely interrupted by a woman working for the Voice of Russia. She abruptly asked me: “How many black women were there?” This question was intentionally disruptive and coercive with no way of creating a positive dialogue.

In addition, a young man who wasn’t a Tea Party Patriot, made some racially insensitive comments, he said: “Blacks should be happy that the slave master gave them shelter, clothing, and food.” At the conclusion of the breakout session, I further explained to him the Frederick Douglass Republican Message which he embraced, bought a book, and we left as friends.

Why of course you did.

I love the narrative construction inherent in the reported resolution of this story:

K Carl: Slavers and racists were Democrats, so black people should be Republican because Democrats are still racist and horrid.
Terry: I’m belittling claims that slavery was bad, think white people are oppressed, that discussing race in the US alienates Southerner white males for unspecified totally racist reasons…and I’m a Republican at a Republican conference.
K Carl: But Frederick Douglass Republicans.
Terry: I, the person that directly contradicted every construct about race and politics you just presented, shall purchase a book and go in peace.
K Carl: And I shall construct public statement that pours oil over the rough waters of your obvious white supremacism and not trouble myself about how you fit into the larger body of CPAC.

Climate Denier at CPAC: Trust Me, I’m an Astronaut

Walter Cunningham—a former Apollo astronaut and Marine fighter pilot who now gives talks about climate change for the conservative Heartland Institute—can only find one piece of evidence to support the view, held by 97 percent of climate scientists, that the Earth is getting warmer. He moves to the next slide on his Powerpoint presentation at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and the audience of about three dozen or so activists bursts into laughter.

It’s a chart tracking the shrinking size of undergarments, from last century’s long johns, to the 21st century’s thongs.

Climate scientists, Cunningham suggests, are simply conflating correlation and causation—something he helpfully illustrates by charting rising global temperatures and the number of pirates worldwide. (They track pretty closely!) But his fellow panelists at Friday’s breakout session, “The Right Climate Stuff,” don’t even go that far; Thomas Wysmuller, whose credentials include a degree in meteorology and a five-year internship at NASA, talks up icy winter temperatures in Moscow and Siberia as evidence the Earth isn’t warming at all. Harold Doiron, a former rocket scientist who by his own admission has “only been a serious student of global warming for maybe two years,” suggests we’re making a big fuss about nothing.

“If sea level’s rising, it’s not a global problem,” Doiron says. “It’s not happening in the Rocky Mountains.” (Sorry, Tuvalu.) Besides, he says, even if carbon dioxide were a problem, it’s simply not in the United States’ best interests to take action unilaterally—not when China is refusing to get on board. The reports that China is actually moving ahead with a carbon tax haven’t made it to National Harbor, Maryland. Maybe they use Google Reader.

If Mitt Romney was a man of actual character, as understood traditionally as an honorable man, when he was at that podium at CPAC he would have spoke the truth to them, even if they were to boo him.
