Democrats see voter suppression everywhere they look. It is the only way they are able to comprehend the fact that Americans are not into their radical agenda.
And as more and more minorities, particularly black voters, leave their Party they again blame voter suppression for it.
In the same way they believe having identification to prove you are a citizen of the United States is voter suppression they now believe that even making overtures to black voters is voter suppression, Politico reported.
The Westside Gazette bills itself as “Broward County’s oldest and largest African American owned-and-operated newspaper.” For five decades, the Fort Lauderdale, Fla. weekly has catered to a staunchly Democratic readership.
So, when readers opened an edition last month to find a full-page ad from President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign, many couldn’t believe it. Why would he even bother?
Bobby Henry, the newspaper’s publisher, said he thought that the ad by President Trump’s campaign to talk to black voters was “abnormal.”
He said a reader talked to him at church to ask him why the president would have an ad in a black newspaper.
“For [Trump] to reach out to the broader African American community is what surprised me,” the publisher said.
As part of an initiative named “Black Voices” the president’s campaign has spent around $1 million to reach black voters and it plans on spending more.
The ads highlight the president’s support for historically black colleges, the lowest unemployment numbers in history for black Americans and his criminal justice reform.
The president got eight percent of the black vote in 2016 and it is unlikely that he would ever win a majority of black voters.
Changing how people think and showing them another way is something that takes time and effort, but if the president could get to 10 percent, or higher, of the black vote it could mean he gets elected again in 2020.
“It’s not about whether or not he can change enough minds to get him to 98 percent of the black vote,” Republican strategist and Trump campaign adviser Paris Dennard said.
“You can move the needle ever so slightly in certain cities and certain counties, he said.
Dennard said that the president is working harder to get black voters than any other Republican in history. “It’s historic because this just doesn’t happen,” he said.
This has Democrats in a panic state as they rely on near 100 percent black voter support to have a chance in elections.
“The end goal is to create doubt in the minds of black voters, doubt about the Democratic Party and doubts about the Democratic nominee,” Adrianne Shropshire, executive director of Black PAC, said. “It really is about suppressing the black vote more than it is about bringing black voters out to support Trump.”
She believes that black voters should have no choice and if they do have a choice than that is voter suppression.
It comes back to the fact that Democrats believe that they own the black vote and black people should not be given a choice.
Other Republicans have brushed aside the black vote, assuming they cannot get any of it. But President Trump believes that if people are told the facts they will follow their own hearts and minds.
That is not voter suppression. It is voter empowerment and Democrats are terrified.
