As usual, 2013 Virginia GOP Lt. Governor nominee and 2016 Ted Cruz endorser E.W. Jackson is not just wrong, but crazy wrong. In this case, he claims there’s “no black firewall for Hillary in the South,” despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. For instance, a recent PPP poll has a lead of “by anywhere from 40-62 points among black voters in the nine of these states that have more black voters than the national average.” PPP adds that Clinton’s “support ranges from 63-74% with black voters in those states, while Sanders gets 12-23%.” So Jackson’s just flat-out, insanely wrong on this. He’s also wacked out about his usual obsessions: Margaret Sanger as a supposed “racist eugenicist” (utterly false); ranting about gay marriage; blaming Democrats (!!!) and not trickle-down, supply-side, Koch brothers economics for poverty among African Americans; the big lie that Democrats (who, I’d point out, are in agreement with Pope Francis on a huge number of issues) are against what the Bible teaches, even though it’s Republicans who are the party which wants to build walls to keep the “stranger” out, who favor the rich and powerful over the poor and humble, etc, etc.
With that, here’s Jackson’s latest unhinged tirade, which I’m sure will have the same effect his many previous unhinged tirades have had. Zilch.
By Bishop E.W. Jackson
Every pundit in the mainstream media has opined about Hillary’s “firewall” in the south. These comments intensified after the shellacking she received in the New Hampshire primaries at the hands of a confessed socialist. The firewall to which they refer to is the black vote. As usual, white liberals assume that when they say jump, black voters will submissively ask, “How high?”
However, the proverbial firewall for Hillary Clinton may be about to get some very cold water thrown on it. Black voters might not be in a mood to jump, sing or dance to Hillary’s tune. They may not be asking, “How high?” Rather, they may be interrogating Hillary in the same fashion that the FBI agents are asking about her emails. Black Christians in particular will want to know, “what have you done for us? Why have you embraced gay marriage when you know we believe in the biblical definition of marriage? Why are you such an avid supporter of Planned Parenthood and admirer of Margaret Sanger when you know that she was a racist eugenicist who wanted to stop the growth of the black population?”
They might also ask, “If you and your party have done so much for us, why is poverty increasing in the black community. Why is there no economic development? Why are there no jobs? Why is the unemployment rate among black citizens twice that of the national average? Why is there a 50% unemployment rate among black youth?”
If these questions get asked, it will be another disappointing election day for Hillary in the southern primaries because there are no valid answers. Of course she will demagogue the issue of race, believing that she can manipulate black voters. That may not be enough this time.
The election of the first black President has taught a lesson to black voters which more and more are taking to heart. Democrat policies do not work. They are based on the false premise that every bad thing that happens to any black person in America is the result of racism, and government must step in with more funding and more control. That approach is a gargantuan failure. It has not solved the economic and educational disparity. It has not kept increasing numbers of young people off drugs, out of gangs, out of prison or out of the morgue. It has not reduced the scourge of out of wedlock pregnancy, or the disproportionate number of abortions in the black community.
In fact, government programs have left people more entrenched in poverty and despair. For example, the welfare policy which rewards women for the absence of a man in the home is still operating and has all but destroyed the black two parent family.
Black Christians, the largest voting bloc in the black community, should be particularly incensed. Democrats voted God off their platform. Their minions sue every time they see a Christian praying in any public setting. When they are in control, they sanitize their proceedings from all mention of the name of Jesus because they find it “offensive”. They persecute Christians who dare hold to the biblical definition of marriage, and marginalize them as bigots and haters. As Kelvin Cochran, a black man and former Atlanta Fire Chief learned, they will even take away your job for what you preach in church if it does not comport with their amoral worldview. The Democrat Party is not looking for black men and women, but for good boys and girls who never contradict their liberal masters, not even in church. Just ask the preachers who do their bidding.
The ugly fact is that a Christian who votes for Hillary Clinton is committing a grave sin. If you are contemplating doing that, you should pray long and hard about the state of your own heart and the spiritual blindness which holds you captive. I am black, but I am a Christian first. Over thirty years ago God loosed me from bondage to a party that defends the killing of unborn children and opposes Biblical principle at every turn.
I’ve already made the case that Democrats do nothing for the black community. However, even if they were providing significant benefits, is it worth losing one’s soul? To paraphrase Jesus, do not worry about who is going to feed you or who is going to clothe you, for the Godless worry about all these things. Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added to you.
The black Christians of South Carolina and the other southern states must not vote for a candidate or party which opposes everything the Bible teaches. They must no longer jump at the command of Democrat politicians. It is time to stand together with Jesus Christ.
