RUSH: Now, this story about black activists trashing and dumping the Democrat Party, it’s out of Chicago. It is Chicago activists. It’s a video. It’s just been posted by Drudge on his home page, and I’ve got the eager staff working on putting that video together so I can share it with you. But here are some quotes from the video. All I know is, these are Chicago political activists, and they’re fed up.
They’re fed up with the Democrat Party. “My life has been hurt by Democrats. Everything wrong in our community is under Democrats. Black leadership’s abusing us; Democrat leadership is abusing us. We want an opportunity to own businesses.” It’s a long rant. It runs four minutes. It’s four or five black men just taking down the Democrat Party. They’re urging people to vote.
They don’t tell ’em who or how to vote, but they are dumping all over the Democrat Party. Here’s some more quotes: “Black folks are in an abusive black-leadership relationship. Look and see in your community who the real oppresses are. Black-on-black crime is blacks voting against our interests. Blacks are running Detroit. White people are not doing that. The minimum wage is a joke when you don’t have any jobs.
“They forced us into a life of welfare.”
Well, now, this may be in the category Too Good to Be True. I mean, this is the kind of thing I was expecting. This should have been… Well, I’m not gonna look a gift horse in the mouth. You just… Okay, no. I’ll take it for what it is. (interruption) Well, no. All I’m gonna say is, you know, over the course these 25 years, I’ve asked openly: “When is it gonna dawn on people that the people they’re counting on are making their lives worse? When’s it gonna dawn on them?”
It may have here in Chicago.
RUSH: All right. I have the audio now from the Chicago activists just ripping into the Democrat Party. It’s about a four-minute rant. We’ve divvied it up here into four one-minute bites, and here’s who they are: Paul McKinley, Mark Carter, Joseph Watkins, and Harold “Noonie” Ward. Now, McKinley, Watson, Carter and Ward have all spent time in prison in the past.
They have since taken to the streets of Chicago to fight against the injustices in their community and make this story all the more interesting. The source for this is a website called RebelPundit.com. Rebel Pundit. I have a little background on it, just so you know from where this all comes from. “Rebel Pundit was founded by Jeremy Segal, an anti-activist, and continues as a group effort based in urban centers across the” fruited plain.
“The blog is a beacon of truth, showing the unholy alliance of the mainstream media, Republican Party establishment, the liberal Democrat Party, big unions and corrupt ‘not for profits.'” This sounds like one of my kinds of groups. No, seriously. “The blog is a beacon of truth, showing the unholy alliance of the mainstream media, Republican Party establishment, the liberal Democrat Party, big unions and corrupt ‘not for profits.’
“Our team takes to the field with cameras to show what isn’t aired in the local and beyond. The members of Rebel Pundit believe that exposing the true nature of liberalism and the toll it has taken on regular peoples’ lives is our top mission.” The story from which this audio comes: “Chicago Activists Unchained, Destroy Black Leadership — “Chicago activists Paul McKinley, Mark Carter, Joseph Watkins and Harold ‘Noonie’ Ward recently went on the record with Rebel Pundit …”
They’re not part of Rebel Pundit. Rebel Pundit found them. Rebel Pundit found ’em, and they “went on the record with Rebel Pundit to deliver a message to black communities across the country. That message sheds light on who they say are the ‘real oppressors’ of their community — black liberal Democrats.” So we will listen, you and I together here, and I imagine that we’re gonna agree with quite a bit of it. Many of us have been asking…
I mean, if you, for 50 years, have been voting for the Democrat Party on the basis that they’re gonna lead you to the Promised Land, that they’re gonna rescue you from economic oblivion, that they’re gonna end discrimination and racism against you, then why do you keep voting for ’em? Because none of that’s happened. The Democrat Party has instead implemented policies that have destroyed the black family.
It’s not me who says that. It is other blacks who have called here and told me that since 25 years ago, 20 years ago, you name it. It’s a regular occurrence. But it’s a question that a lot of people ask. What is the hold? What is it? And all we can ever figure out was that no matter how bad the Democrats are and no matter how bad their policies are, the branding of the Republican Party and the black community is insurmountable.
It’s even worse. These guys… Again, they are Paul McKinley, Mark Carter, Joseph Watkins, Harold “Noonie” Ward. Let’s get started.
This was yesterday in the Rebel Pundit website, RebelPundit.com. It’s a video. We got the audio from it. Four Chicago African-American activists talking about who are the real oppresses.
MCKINLEY: (music/outdoor noise) Black folks is in a abusive black-leadership relationship.
CARTER: We have to send a message; this is the time for us to send a message.
WATKINS: We’re always talking about what the Republicans ain’t done for us, or what they will do to hurt us. My life has been hurt by Democrats.
WARD: And we got in our mind that we always got to keep voting Democrat. You know?
MCKINLEY: Look and see in your community. Who are the real oppressors in our community? They always talk about black-on-black crime, and when you hear the words “black-on-black crime” the first thing you think of is a black man robbing you or a black man breaking in your house, and that is a black-on-black crime. But let’s take it one step further. There’s a black-on-black crime in down in City Hall. There’s a black-on-black crime down in all the state capitals in America where black folks are voting against our interests, where black folks are voting and making us poorer. We’re getting poorer and poorer, and other groups are getting richer and richer!
WARD: Everywhere you go there’s poverty in black areas.
WATKINS: This lot where I stand at right now ought to be housing, public housing for people to live in. Most of the people are homeless, living in the street, and it’s because of you, Mr. President.
RUSH: Doesn’t need any commentary. Here’s the next. We have four bites. This rant went on four minutes.
MCKINLEY: (music/outdoor noise) In Detroit, where your leaders at? There’s no white folks running Detroit, cutting water on black folks in Detroit! Them black folks running that city! There ain’t no white folks doing that. Them black folks going along with that. Everything that’s happing in our community (siren) is black leadership doing this.
WATKINS: Our children know that if the Democrats have not done anything for us as of yet, why should they even go out and vote? What agenda’s on the table that’s going to change their lives?
MCKINLEY: The only thing they’re offering the black community is abortion on demand. This is what the president is asking us to vote for.
CARTER: Now he wants to have this conversation about a minimum wage raise because he knows this is the way to get a lot of the poor people’s attention. But to hell with his minimum wage raise! We don’t have any jobs. A minimum wage raise for what?
MCKINLEY: They’re not pushing a black agenda. They’re not pushing a family agenda. They’re pushing a neo-liberal agenda.
CARTER: Across this city in these major Democratic cities, this is what it looks like.
RUSH: These guys are in Chicago. They’re nailing it. They’re saying things that, if anybody else other than them says, it’s heap big doo-doo. They were still not finished. There was more.
WARD: (music/outdoor noise) How can the same process happen over and over again and nobody can do nothing about it?
MCKINLEY: Black leadership is abusing us. The Democratic Party is abusing us.
WARD: Its the same way in every black community across the country.
CARTER: And they force us into a life of welfare. We don’t want no welfare! We want opportunities to go to work. We want opportunities to own businesses. They bailed out all of the major banks and these big investors, but left the people starving.
MCKINLEY: There are no Tea Parties in your city. We don’t have those people.
CARTER: We have a major Democratic machine — and the majority of them, they look like me! These are the people who make sure we get nothing, but then turn around and have us vote for them again.
WARD: They only come around when its time for elections, when they think they can give you a toy or give you a turkey or something and everything is good.
RUSH: They’re right about that, too. They come around and warn ’em about how bad the Republicans are gonna be to ’em. They come back and warn ’em about how mean the Republicans are gonna be, and they come around and they warn ’em that this is gonna happen and that’s gonna happen.
Meanwhile, these guys are taking note of what has been happening under Democrat Party rule and denomination. All of these cities are run by Democrats. They’re taking stock and taking note of conditions that black people live under in these places run by Democrats, black and white. I’ve not… Look, we’ve had calls over the course of the program here from individuals who have said things like that.
But never from the street level. We’re never had any guys like this call. Well, maybe a couple. I wouldn’t know for sure. But this is intense, and it is serious, and these guys mean it. They certainly understand it’s liberalism doing them in. There’s no “black agenda.” There’s not. This is “a neo-liberal agenda” they’re talking about. Here’s the final bite. This runs just under a minute.
CARTER: (music/outdoor noise) Hundreds of millions of dollars are coming down from the federal government, but the money is going to all these special interest groups. My Brother’s Keeper went to [Obama’s] friends, this whole corrupt Democratic system that gobbles up all the dollars and starves the people out. Can you all look around your community and see any changes that have come about with these hundreds of billions of dollars that have come through our cities? No you cannot. What we do see is our elected officials riding around in new cars and they have new homes.
MCKINLEY: When our people don’t have jobs in our communities, when we don’t have any vital resources — when all the deals have been cut and all our people are left out — this is where we end up.
WARD: And we got the most important thing that we got. We can stop all this. Everybody’s gotta vote, and if you use your vote wisely, you can stop a lot of this stuff.
RUSH: These guys are out on a get-out-the-vote campaign except it’s unlike any I have ever seen. These guys are in a get-out-the-vote campaign, and they are urging people to vote against the status quo, and that is the Democrat Party running the show. And they’re right. Look at all the money supposedly over the years, billions that’s been allocated to wipe out these horrible circumstances that poor people, black and white, live under. It’s actually trillions since 1964, and it’s the same percentage of people in poverty, and black people the worse.
Something else these guys have noticed. There ain’t no Tea Party here. Don’t tell us the Tea Party is hurting us. There isn’t any Tea Party here. All we got are Democrats running our show. There is no Tea Party here in Chicago. Don’t tell us about the Tea Party. There aren’t any white people turning off the water in Detroit. There aren’t any Republicans doing that to us.
It’s inescapably true. Everything these guys are saying. What are you smirking about in there, Mr. Snerdley? (interruption) Oh, you love it, you’re not dubious about this? (interruption) No, no. I know. This couldn’t come at a better time, and it’s right on the streets in Chicago. Again, these guys that you were just listening to, they are Chicago activists Paul McKinley, Mark Carter, Joseph Watkins and Harold “Noonie” Ward, and they made these statements I guess in an interview at a website called RebelPundit.com.
