Black Conservatives Fund at New Orleans RLC
Written by 

Republican elephantAccording to a recent press release from the Republican Leadership Conference, the Black Conservatives Fund is giving away tickets to the Republican Leadership Conference this year in New Orleans.


One of the reason why they are going to New Orleans, according to the fund's Chairman Jessica Hayes, is the attitude of the Democratic Party toward black conservatives. Hayes said: "Democrats say that black conservatives are either Uncle Toms or don't exist. It's a lie to scare voters, and we are calling them out." PAC founding board member Anita MonCrief said: "The top Democrat, in charge of all House campaigns, recently called the Republican Party racist. We're showing that that is just not the case. I'm looking forward to help sending more Black Republicans to RLC 2014."

According to the same press release, the RLC will emphasize "the importance of engaging African American voters" and "provide special network opportunities for black Republicans." RLC spokesman Ali Akbar, referring to the same top Democrat as MonCrief, said: "top Democrat House leader Rep. Steve Israel (D-Ca.) said Republicans are 'animated by racism,' but failed to mention a single Republican he could assign that false claim to." The leader of the effort to invite black conservatives to RLC is William P. Mills, III, a conservative donor. The program will include a special tribute to Republican pioneer Frederick Douglass.

RLC 2014 is held in New Orleans on May 29-31 at the Hilton Riverside. The participants include many top Republican strategists, elected officials, activists, donors, bloggers, and candidates.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
