Say No to Me-Too Politics


Thomas Sowell discusses the RNC's "Growth and Opportunity Project" report, and once again gets it so right:
They propose going through such organizations as the NAACP to reach black voters, as if the NAACP owns blacks, in violation of the 13th Amendment. Not only is the NAACP virtually a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democratic party, but the kind of black voters that the Republicans have some hope of winning over are unlikely to be enthralled to the NAACP, and many of them may see through such race hustling. Or do all blacks look alike to those who wrote this report?
It is the same story with Hispanics and Asian-Americans. The Republicans are supposed to go through these groups’ “leaders” as well — mostly leaders tied to the Democratic party, ideologically or otherwise. You might think that a Republican party that talks about individualism would try to appeal to individuals.
