150 more years and mission accomplished. And the Left has the wicked, demonic nerve to call the GOP and the Tea Party racist? THIS is the spirit of the Democratic Party, from its inception until …

RagingElephants.org Billboards Up In Austin, TX

Submitted by on October 19, 2011 – 7:57 pm74 Comments

“The Herd” has done it, again!
Memorial Dedication Last Sunday.
RE.org Billboards, Today!

On this past Sunday the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial was dedicated on the Mall in our nation’s capital.  Today, 3 of our 4 billboards were unveiled in the state capital of Texas. What a gut shot to the socialist!

Call Him the “Flavor of the Month”. But, a Black Conservative is in the Lead!

Herman Cain, an unapologetic conservative is leading the GOP field for the Republican nomination for POTUS.  In case you didn’t notice, he’s an American of African descent. And, if with perfect timing, or unexpected providence, the RagingElephants.org “GOP is the New Black” billboards are going to stir up a storm on the “plantation”.

We STILL Need Your Help…

We’re about 30 donors short from covering our cost on contracting for the billboards.  If you haven’t made a contribution, please make a donation.  We’ve been asking for $30, or more.  However, you already know that any amount will be welcomed with gratitude.  Once, again, we’ve attempted to show that we’re aggressive, strategically astute, and can get the job done.  Please help us move forward, become even more aggressive, and launch future efforts by donating, today.

For those that have already donated, “Thank You”!  For those that are about to donate, “Thank You”!

    Love this site…GOP/African-Americans….what a terrific combo…the real Black/White Unity!!! The true relationship based on mutual respect.Not the DNC- “Dependant Negro Commies” where Blacks are relegated to 2nd class… where their heros Bill Clinton fired a black woman in state government to give his trashy girlfriend (genifer flowers) a job. Where they worship this Muslim Kenyan Goat Herder as some real Black man….He’s HALF WHITE and a “Son of Afica” not the descendant of American Black Slaves….a phony….Herman Cain is THE TRUE AFRICAN AMERICAN and built the American Dream without whitey standing there telling him ” I am here to er Help you”

    A snippet from factcheck.org:

    Blacks mostly voted Republican from after the Civil War and through the early part of the 20th century. That’s not surprising when one considers that Abraham Lincoln was the first Republican president, and the white, segregationist politicians who governed Southern states in those days were Democrats. The Democratic Party didn’t welcome blacks then, and it wasn’t until 1924 that blacks were even permitted to attend Democratic conventions in any official capacity. Most blacks lived in the South, where they were mostly prevented from voting at all.

    Rest here: http://www.factcheck.org/2008/04/blacks-and-the-democratic-party/

    This is the voting record for passage of the Civil Rights Bill. Not the percentages of Yay vs Nay votes.

    The original House version:[13]

    Democratic Party: 152-96 (61%-39%)
    Republican Party: 138-34 (80%-20%)

    Cloture in the Senate:[14]

    Democratic Party: 44-23 (66%–34%)
    Republican Party: 27-6 (82%–18%)

    The Senate version:[13]

    Democratic Party: 46-21 (69%–31%)
    Republican Party: 27-6 (82%–18%)

    The Senate version, voted on by the House:[13]

    Democratic Party: 153-91 (63%–37%)
    Republican Party: 136-35 (80%–20%)

  • Ray says:

    Sorry, typo. I meant NOTE the percentages.

  • Jim says:

    Americans as a whole not only repudiate racism, but despise the very paradigm. Polls show that a super-majority despises the attribute so vehemently that those who are guilty are ostracized and their opinions on most every other issue are avoided: and that the country as a whole has moved on from the hatred. Those studies also show that even the majority who disagree with the current President are proud that this nation could, and would; elect a minority to the highest ranking public office available.

    Accordingly, there is an offence Americans find as despicable as racism, and that’s the act of intentionally accusing someone falsely of that proclivity. This dynamic is prevalent in our society because it assaults the justice our nation upholds, and God Himself reviles. We despise child molesters, the assault on the weak and elderly; we despise the the rapist. But we equally despise the false accusations against those innocent of those sins against humanity. We see this as a corrupt attempt to take advantage of our humanity, and frankly we resent it as much as we resent the actual contravention.

    Any possibility for a MLK Billboard in the Boston/Dorchester/Roxbury areas of Masachusetts?

  • ken gross says:

    How can I get a bumper sticker that looks like the billboard above?

  • ronald towns says:

    how about this instead of “raging elephants” raging sellouts would be better.sell your soul for 15 minutes of shame

  • Greg Bruce says:

    The democrat politicians hold on the black vote is weakening. They have built a multi billion dollar slush fund with our tax money aka stimulus money. We are about to witness the power this treasure chest has to purchase votes. I hope there is still time for truth and justice to prevail in 2012.
    As a result of their weakening trance on the African American they are now pulling out all stops to fill the void with Hispanics legal or otherwise.
    When presented fairly an overwhelming majority of people choose the conservative tenet of creating a system of opportunity where we all can move up according to our effort and merit over the liberal tenet that people are not intelligent enough therefore the government must be there caretaker.
    I am a white American, Tea Party member, self employed blue collar laborer. I love all people as God has created them. He makes no mistakes. And I will fight this collectivist, racist cabal of criminals currently presiding over the land of the free. There is no contradiction. We can all love them and defeat them to secure America’s place as that shining city on the hill where freedom loving people from all the world can succeed and prosper.
    I support RagingElephants both financially and spiritually.

  • a real black person says:

    As a real black person/voter Republicans or Herman Cain will not get the black vote.I mean never,look at the tea party and the real people who run the elephants.All of them dislike blacks and minorities.Face it Republicans Obama will get another 4 years so you cadmium stop eating that denial pie and embrace your racism.y’all no you don’t like that Cain Guy or Perry or the other fool.I doubt Republicans will have a viable nominee for quite some time.poll mean nothing. Sadly the real change will happen when most of y’all baby boomers die/pass away.ton many old ideas and just old ass people in politics.Younger people tend to be more understanding to new ideas and LESS RACIST.A good 15 20 years we all will be better off.

  • Amanda says:

    But…MLK was NOT a Republican. What’s the deal?

  • boner says:

    @ a real black person:

    Did you ever get past the 4th grade? Your comments, such as they are, make little sense. Is that the English language you were trying to communicate with? Your comments and your marginal ability to communicate them are a great window into what the public school system has created.

    I look forward to you waiting on me at McDonalds or are you one of those that I am merely supporting without any effort at all on your part?

  • Forever Red says:

    Hmmmmm. Sounds like spend and borrow doesn’t. We gotta cut that out ya’all…

  • Helen Jenkins says:

    I certainly hope Mr. Cain, you will reassess your ‘reassessing’ candidacy. This is exactly what the established Republicans/R.I.N.O./ would be opinion shapers/kingmakers/ Damage control, status quo protectors/Urban Plantation Gatekeepers/PC Democrats want you to do. Please, remember your ancestors and what they went through but kept on keeping on. Even if you had an affair, it does not disqualify you. Obama is not fit to tie your shoes and the POWERS THAT BE and are fighting mightily to keep you on the defensive so they can go on being POWERS have done far worse and they will go on fighting to get you out. That knowledge alone should be a powerful incentive to stay in the race and insure the elite whackos enjoy chronic acid reflux for a very long time. WE THE PEOPLE understand dirty tricks and can’t be as easily fooled and disillusioned as talking heads would have you believe. Whether you win or lose is not nearly as important as refusing to allow yourself to be driven out because for some maintaining power is far more important than electing a human, imperfect individual who would gladly give HIS all in the service of his country – not sell it out to terrorists. DON’T LET THE ELITE SOCIALISTS WIN!!! Even if you had an extramarital affair- that is not disqualifying. That’s a matter between you, your wife and your GOD- believe that and show by your tenacity “ they can go to hell !!! “dey sa actions speak louder than words”.. Reassess your reassessment. Remember A WINNER NEVER QUITS AND A QUITTER NEVER WINS. I keep up with the polls. When I saw yours rising, I said,”Here we go again!” THEY have a money grubbing bimbo waiting in the wings. STAY! FIGHT BACK!!! Stay in just for the hell of it. Don’t let them force you out! Win by refusing to be driven out. Don’t let them set the terms of your actions. It 2011, but there are many PC who see a black man and assume they hold all the cards. They can’t win unless you let them! Don’t let them! God did not bring you this far, survive as many set backs and challenges, and emerge a winner, a champion, just to have you WIMP OUT on such an obvious ploy. Mr. Cain, MAN UP! Get in THEIR FACES. Remember your ancestors (that Obama has put to shame).Win, just for the hell of it, if for no other reason-WE THE PEOPLE HAVE NOT SPOKEN and NO ONE SPEAKS FOR US. Keep the faith and the conversation going.

  • Fred says:

    Martin Luther King, Jr was a great moral leader and not a Republican or Democrat. He stated this clearly:
    “Actually, the Negro has been betrayed by both the Republican and the Democratic party. The Democrats have betrayed him by capitulating to the whims and caprices of the Southern Dixiecrats. The Republicans have betrayed him by capitulating to the blatant hypocrisy of reactionary right wing northern Republicans. And this coalition of southern Dixiecrats and right wing reactionary northern Republicans defeats every bill and every move towards liberal legislation in the area of civil rights.” See The Papers of Martin Luther King, Jr: Symbol of the Movement, January 1957 – December 1958. University of California Press. p. 84. ISBN 978-0-520-22231-1.

  • Ted says:

    “Many white Americans of good will have never connected bigotry with economic exploitation. They have deplored prejudice but tolerated or ignored economic injustice.”

    “We in the West must bear in mind that the poor countries are poor primarily because we have exploited them through political or economic colonialism.”

    “When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.”

    Yep, that sounds just like a Republican.

  • Micheal says:

    Raging Elephants, you are wrong. Martin Luther King was NOT a Republican. He did not like any party. Please get your facts straight, stop spreading bullshit.

  • dusty dingo says:

    If you would take everything in context, it would seem to bear evidence that MLK was a ‘republican’ in spirit, maybe not as a party member. Those things that identify the republican party, would be that they stand for life, personal rights, anti-racism and against class warfare. The content of character is what defines the person. It is the DFL party which has worked tirelessly to enslave blocks of citizens, in order to secure their support. They in fact have made that note, some years ago, when they publicly stated that “we can secure a voting block of citizens by providing the benefits they wish for”..

    This is how Hitler came to power, he destroyed the economy first, broke down the families by separating due to economic necessities and desperation, then came in and offered “State” solutions, in jobs and food at taxpayers expense.. but hey, “times are tough”.. and they lined up for the handouts! And all he asked for was their support to ‘make things better’ for everyone. If they resisted, he had them targeted for subversion and anti-gov’t behavior, and history tells the rest.

    Accepting benefits begets dependency begets loyalty. When we trade RIGHTS for ‘PRIVILEGES’ we are headed directly into the trap entitlement mentality creates. And when you accept the ‘privilege’, you are ‘agreeing’ to the contract terms. And when you agree to it, you are bound to the outcome. If it’s slavery, well.. you did agree to it. Are you okay with that??

    I am not! I reject benefits. I work my skinny butt off to make my own way. If I am poor financially at times, well that is far better than well fed and a slave to the State. I have my self respect.

    I heard Apostle on Ingraham’s program today, and he is telling the truth. I call men like him my brother and equal, and a great example. Semper Fidelis!

  • buf says:

    As a caucasian my experiences with racism leads me to believe that racism has no boundaries. And my experiences with black political control is that it prefers to instigate fear and support opression so that it may retain political status; even to the detriment of its constituents.

    We all want freedom. A fair question for the political parties is “What is freedom?” And “What is you vision for achieving this freedom?”

  • I’m a white guy, but for reaWsons — where I came up and how etc — have been obsessed for DECADES with bringing Black Americans back to the GOP or the GOP back to the people. I don’t know how they/we can expect any support from people we are afraid to talk to. or to whom we afraid to talk. Take your choice. WE, the GOP, only goes into a prodominantly Black area if we have a Black candidate. DUH. This is a circular logic that can lead only to failure. Every person that is concerned with the Party or it’s replacement/reorganization needs to INSIST on candidates, office holders and past office holders going into the community and speaking. SPECIFICALLY,the SCHOOLS. Write to your governor, congressman and senators and ask them to go to the elementary, middle and high schools in your area. NAME THEM. Not a general Why don’t you go to a school letter. YOU SHOULD SPEAK TO THE CHILDREN AT EDISON ACADEMY ON SINGLETON. THE PRINCIPAL IS MR. KING. That type of letter. Include and address and PHONE NUMBER. If you get an answer from a functionary LEARN THEIR NAME. THAT is the person you can talk to, not the governor or Senator or ex-President. Get it? anyone leaving a comment at my blog saying CONTACT ME… I would like to talk to you by email, OK? Thanks. Together we MIGHT succeed. Alone we will surely fail.

  • Sorry, Ted, though you may be full of good will you are full of something else as well. I am sure that President Obama would agree that the “poor countries” are poor because of the “rich countries” and not the dictatorships that rule them. However, it isn’t true. Even in a country with large numbers of educated people for generations when the govermnent TAKES billions of dollars from the people and tries to “create jobs” it doesn’t work very well — see the repeated efforts of the Obama administration. When you have people who become billionaires on the back of a population with yearly incomes of under a hundred dollars like Yassar Arafat and the Palestinians they love to blame some evil power on the other side of the planet, but that doesn’t make it true. There is a lot more than 90 miles of salt water separating Cuba and the USA my friend. The evil Yankee Imperiallists haven’t been able to own any businesses on the island for 50+ years and the equipment and land didn’t fly away when the revolution occurred, just initiative. Why is it so poor?

  • AHA!! I get it finally. Ted is QUOTING MLK jr on certain subjects to PROVE, supposedly, that he was NOT a Republican. What you ARE proving, Ted, is that he was NOT an economist. His allegience to the Republican Party is a matter of historical FACT, not something “figured out” by reading his statements. That is because he KNEW from EXPERIENCE in his OWN LIFE who had opposed him and who had helped him. He KNEW from experiences in his FATHER’S and FAMILY and FRIENDS lives that Republicans — ESPECIALLY IN THE SOUTH — had been the party of the “Negro” for over 100 years and the Democrats had been the party of Segregation and the KLAN. Only in the last decade have those Southern Democrats died off who were high up in the KKK, such as Robert Byrd, who not only led a FILIBUSTER against the 1964 Civil Rights Act, but continued to refer publicly to “N*GG*RS” as late as 2001 ON TELEVISION when interviewed by Tony Snow. The Civil Rights act was proposed by REPUBLICANS and opposed by DEMOCRATS for DECADES. Yes, LBJ turned enough Dems around that it finally passed, but with EIGHTY PERCENT of the GOP and around 40 percent of the Dems. These are FACTS. And, yes, MLK probably “FELT” many things about economics that are not Republican positions. That is why “FEELINGS” make a good song for Barbra Streisand, but lousy policies for a country.

    Civil Right No. 1: The Right to Vote

    This important essay published in the NY Times Magazine – Sunday, March 14, 1965 and reprinted in “A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr.” describes eloquently as only Rev. King could the electoral circumstances and hate bringing question to the very foundation of what we call the United States of America.

    It describes a time, how and when the Republican Party was co-opt’d by the ancestral elements of today’s bigots who have pulled it so far right to seriously threaten its demise from the collapse of it’s so-called tent of inclusion.

    This essay is a must read to fully understand the impact of today’s voter suppression efforts of the Republican party; by both the extrovert racists and those like Mitt Romney and cast who intentionally out of fear of losing the election, turn a blind eye. It also should put to rest for those of you whom are not sure whether or not Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican.

    A Testament of Hope is one of the most referenced books in my library.

    “I feel someone must remain in the position of non-alignment, so that he can look objectively at both parties and be the conscience of both—not the servant or master of either.”
    Martin Luther King, Jr.

    “I don’t think the Republican party is a party full of the almighty God nor is the Democratic party. They both have weaknesses … And I’m not inextricably bound to either party.” Martin Luther King Jr. (1958)

    You are not educating people, you are using lies to misinform them. Regardless of your party affiliation you should be ashamed of yourself.

    Although King never publicly supported a political party or candidate for president, in a letter to a civil rights supporter in October 1956 he said that he was undecided as to whether he would vote for Adlai Stevenson or Dwight Eisenhower, but that “In the past I always voted the Democratic ticket.”

  • keith says:

    Isn’t the billboard a false. According to MLK Jr., he usually voted the Democratic ticket.
