Leftists Say Talking About Urban Areas is Insensitive

Liberals are so racially preoccupied that it is a complete joke when they make claims about racism and call us insensitive. They're the ones who focus on race and exploit it for political gain. They're the ones who want blacks as well as other minorities to be a treated special like they should be a protected class or something set apart from the rest of us. Conservatives treat everyone the same, with respect, regardless of skin color. We don't play identity politics. Paul Ryan gave Obama and his campaign credit for his turnout operation. Then Paul Ryan stated: 

“We knew this was a close race. We thought we had a very good chance of winning it. I think the surprise was some of the turnout, some of the turnout especially in urban areas, which definitely gave President Obama the big margin to win this race,” he told WISC-TV reporter Jessica Arp. “There’s always an electoral college strategy in winning these things…when we watched Virginia and Ohio coming in, and coming in as tight as they were and then looking like we were gonna lose them, that’s when it became pretty clear to us we weren’t going to win.”

The Lame Stream Media and other Leftists think that urban=minorities.  What racially divisive stereotypical thinking! Liberals are the ones who have divided our culture into whites living in one area blacks/minorities in another - segregation by design -  and have pinned the races against one another -whites versus blacks - , or try to have you believe that whites are against blacks.  That is a bunch of horse hockey.  The race hustling by the Left needs to stop. Progressive politicians need to stop taking advantage of minorities and using them for political gain. 

From Hot Air: 
James Hohmann of Politico was first to cry foul, followed by Jonathan Martin of Politico. Wisconsin media was more charitable in its read of Ryan.

He later tweeted the link to the story with the quote.
By noonish it was a NYT piece: “Ryan Surprised by voters in ‘urban areas’”
The remarks prompted scorn from some liberals who viewed Mr. Ryan as blaming inner-city minorities for the Republican defeat.
“Paul Ryan emerged from dustbin of nothingness 2 blame his & Romney’s defeat on “urban” vote,” one person tweeted. “These 2 losers continue 2 demean minorities.”
Another tweeted that “Urban vote” = minorities. Paul Ryan is saying he lost because minorities actually went out and voted. SHOCKER. MINORITIES HAVE RIGHTS, TOO.”
Several people pointed out that Mr. Romney and Mr. Ryan also lost some largely rural states with few minorities, like New Hampshire and Iowa. Those
losses cannot be explained away by focusing on urban voters, they noted.

Libs are unbelievable.

The liberals should know about the easily manipulated and herded "urban vote," that is where they do their vote harvesting.

Keep the poor and dumb ones poor and dumb, and scare the college kids and young professionals that the mean republicans are going to bring back slavery, take away their free birth control, and force raped women to carry the baby to term, and you got yourself a winning strategy based upon "the urban vote."

Romney ran a campaign that excluded many states. No ads, no nothing. Then when PA came into play at the end, we were suppose to rise to the occasion. That is why the numbers were depressed in my opinion.

Daniel Henninger (WSJ) has a good piece out just as to why Romney lost and has more to do with messaging, a lot of it and sustained, than any racial divide.

It is worth a read:

I'm a Racist, and to prove it I voted Republican.

We love you Bunni!

Exactly Silver!

That certainly didn't help Bunkerville.

Thanks for sending me the link Christopher. Daniel Henninger made some good points. Although I think part of the Left's messaging includes promoting racial discord or divisiveness between the different races. That and class warfare.

Teresa said...

That's right Odie, it couldn't possibly be that we voted against the reject's policies.
