Hat tip to ‘Rebel Pundit’ for this video published on Dec 21, 2013. According to the description:
This past Thursday, a town hall meeting hosted by Al Sharpton and the National Action Network to address gun violence exploded into a revolt against “Chicago Machine” politics, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and black alderman in City Hall with panel and audience members calling to vote out their elected officials. One 82-year-old preacher even called for “Tea Party” style meetings in some of Chicago’s south side communities such as Altgeld Gardens and Trumbull Park.
Take time to watch and enjoy this five minute video and perhaps, just perhaps, some people are starting to wake up. It would behoove the Republican party to engage the inner city communities with policy inclusiveness and hat tip to Senator Rand Paul for his recommendations for Detroit, on issues such as economic empowerment zones, small business growth, school choice, restoration of the black family, and running anti-establishment corrupt politicians.
As you watch this video, just imagine Rev. Al’s face as he sat there. Of course the liberal progressives and the black acolytes of progressive socialism will say this video was taken out of context or does not portray the entire event – but it seems to me a pretty good sampling and the responses from the audience support this premise.
The black community may just be finally realizing that they have been locked into a 21st century economic plantation. The GOP was established to break the physical shackles of slavery in 1854. Today, the GOP is needed to break the metaphysical bonds of economic servitude.
