I’ve seen the future and it should be …

… Kira Davis, telling it like it is. What say you, GOP “leadership”? What say you, Threedonia Nation? What say you, BarryO?

From now on the official party strategy should be to only send minority Republicans to do public events/interviews/appearances. Every picture, every brochure, every interview, every meet and greet, everyTHING the GOP does between now and 2016 should have a non-white face at the forefront.

When the Obama stenographers at MSNBC start spewing lies about who wants sequestration, someone like Marco Rubio should be the media go-to guy sent out to dispute those lies.

When Chris Matthews starts talking about racist code words, someone like Nikki Haley should be who the party officially points to for a response.

Mia Love and Allen West are two powerful voices running upstream of the narrative. Republicans know these people, but non-political Americans generally don’t. Right now, when someone says “Republican” the image is a Karl Rove-type. We need to make “minority” synonymous with “Republican”.

    Couldn’t hurt,but the libs have been peddling their moonshine for years,so it won’t be easy.

  • BarryO

    Lipstick on a pig, my friend. Lipstick on a pig.

    • JimmyC

      You mean like electing a half-black guy and pretending that it somehow erases the Democrats’ association with slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, the KKK, George Wallace, Bull Connor, Robert Byrd, and Fred Phelps, among others?

    • Considering the GOP’s the party founded to free slaves, succeeded in that regard despite the worst efforts of the Democrats to keep blacks (and others, not only minorities) in a plantation mentality, and continued to be the party on whom the black community has its best chances of personal success (home and biz ownership up more than any other demographic during the Reagan years), you maybe want to rethink that, BarryO, and/or back up your position beyond an erroneous quip?

  • From Kira, an addendum:

    Dear everyone: Let me clarify my Open Letter to Priebus a little, because some of you seem to think I’m advocating muzzling white folks. I thought I made it clear in the letter but I realize that conservatives are leery of anything that sounds close to race baiting. Listen, what I’m talking about is a MEDIA STRATEGY…nothing more, nothing less. I’m not talking about individuals like Ben Carson or Star Parker. I’m talking about the official party line/media strategy. And I’m not talking about punishing people for being white or slapping duct tape on their mouths and telling them to shut up. I’m talking about playing the game by the rules that have been set up, and mastering the game…since we can’t ever seem to change the game. White people will still have mouths and use them! LOL! Remember how MSNBC edited out all the women and minorities in the first night at the RNC? All I’m saying is – what if we presented them with wall to wall women and minorities? What then? All I’m saying is, let’s make it NORMAL for Republicans to be associated with minorities. To do that we need to flood the market and rob the MSM of every opportunity possible to paint us as the old stereotype. I’m NOT talking about segregation or rejecting or punishing people because they are white. I’m talking about winning. *rant over*

      It’s a great idea, but how are you going to get “Professional” pundits like Krauthammer, Rove, Barone (and on, and on…) to cede their power, influence and screen time?

      • It’s a big tent and sometimes you gotta suck it up for the greater good. I’m a weird team player like that, though.

        Plus, Rove has got to go. If I’ve gotta be the guy pulling the vaudeville-esque hook from off-stage, I will gladly do it.

      • Daniel

        Rufus, I thought the addendum was pretty clear. Kira’s comments have nothing to do with pundits – Rove, Krauthammer, Barone. She’s solely talking about the GOP’s media strategy. Not who Fox News hires as the “conservative pundit” (quotes are solely for the purpose of including Karl Rove). The next time the GOP is contacted by Fox or CNN or whomever, Repupblican officials need to send in Mia Love, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Tim Scott, etc. Not John McCain, Lindsey Graham, or Mitch McConnell.

        And if those three squish-RINO buffoons keep getting the calls, the GOP must walk into their offices and tell them to start forwarding all such media requests to the names noted above of the Party money goes to someone else.

        • Rufus

          I agree it would be saavy for the GOP to do that, but the other guys get most of the eyeballs. Also, we’re talking about the party that replaced Michael Steele With Rince Priebis.

    • BarryO

      I can hear the BS now, “Quick, pull out our binders full of women and minorities!” GOP – the party that fought racism 150 years ago, but has sat on their asses since then and now actively works against them (cue up all the recent efforts to disenfranchise predominately minority voters). Thanks for hanging your hat on what your progressive great-great-grandfathers have done. Now why don’t you follow suit and embrace their progressive spirit that they represented. If that sounds ironic, then it simply is because the GOP has moved away from that and is circling the drain with their conservative crap. Still wondering what I mean, just read your own words on today’s open thread on the all-things-that-espouse-conservative-ideals CPAC. Crumbling around you. Keep playing, band here at Threedonia, as the titanic sinks until you can regroup and re-message.

      • Keep ignoring the years since the Civil War to the present, BarryO, keep ignoring them while you bow to your Divider-in-Chief. You know, like those false cries of racism at the Black Caucus a few years ago. Nobody ever claimed that $100,000 prize from Breitbart for proof of those allegations, by the way. Also, you want to talk allegations of disenfranchisement, let’s see actual proof. Let’s also talk rampant voter fraud via trumpeted multiple votes from Democrat pollsters on the North Coast.

        I also think you’ve known me long enough to know I judge on content of character, not color of skin. So do many, many more on my side of the aisle, unlike your side.

        • BarryO

          According to Fox news, here’s what you guys are proposing to do to support the minorities, “… include the chopping of $2 million for the Minority Business Development Agency…” Keep thinking you are the party really appealing to minorities? It can happen, but it is going to take a lot more progressive stance than that. You want to play the history card so much until someone says the word “reparation.” Then it’s all about how that was in the past and doesn’t affect people today. You are right. It is in the past and doesn’t affect people today, so talk about what the GOP is doing in 2013 to be relevant.

          • BarryO… one of your party — Joseph Serrano — D-NY

            “President Chavez was a controversial leader. But at his core he was a man who came from very little and used his unique talents and gifts to try to lift up the people and the communities that reflected his impoverished roots. He believed that the government of the country should be used to empower the masses, not the few. He understood democracy and basic human desires for a dignified life. His legacy in his nation, and in the hemisphere, will be assured as the people he inspired continue to strive for a better life for the poor and downtrodden.”

            Sean Penn misses his “friend” Hugo Chavez… that is the Democratic party… the party of Copperheads, slavery, Jim Crow, KKK, fighting against the civil rights movement, and the party that countenanced those in its midst who sucked Stalin, Mao, Che, and Chavez.

            Nothing you say carries any weight here because you never answer or deal with those charges. EVER.

          • You act like I watch Fox News and/or treat them as the sole viable news source for the right. I don’t, but you sure seem to rely on them whenever it fits your narrative. Now when are we going to talk actual voter fraud and/or the actual disenfranchisement of servicemembers overseas, very much what the Democrats are doing in 2008, 2012, and likely beyond?

            Reparations would work, too. Just ask Tron … and please don’t forget to include the Irish.
