LET’S HOPE SO!
BLEXIT is an exciting phenomenon, and JEXODUS is not far behind!
Oh, you are not familiar with these terms?
BLEXIT means Blacks leaving the Democratic Party and JEXODUS means Jews are following suit. I’m a Jewish believer and I must say that JEXODUS thrills me!
This article will focus mainly on BLEXIT.
And we can thank people like Candace Owens for her bravery in speaking TRUTH to the black community. She is a firecracker when she speaks. I think that I have seen everything Candace has said publicly!
I feel a kinship with her. When I feel strongly about something – it’s difficult (impossible?) for me to be silent.
The Year the Black Vote Switched: Will 2020 Be 1936 in Reverse?
In 1932, Franklin D. Roosevelt lost the black vote overwhelmingly, receiving just 21% support from black Americans in Chicago (there were no national polling organizations).
Such a loss was understandable, considering that the Democratic Party was the party of slavery and the party instigating segregation in the South. Moreover, the Democrats had made it clear that black Americans were unwelcome in the Democratic Party. In fact, Roosevelt, as undersecretary of the Navy, had actively assisted in President Woodrow Wilson’s resegregation of the military.
Roosevelt had even used the n-word in personal correspondence. Or, as Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. put it generously, Roosevelt “was fairly conventional in his racial attitudes.” Not surprisingly, there had never been any black Americans serving as delegates or alternate delegates to the Democratic National Convention.
Yet just four years later, in 1936, the newly established Gallup Poll revealed that FDR had received 76% of the black vote.
How could such a reversal happen in so short a time span? For nearly 70 years, the Republican Party had enjoyed near-monopoly support from black voters. After all, the first Republican President was Abraham Lincoln, who was responsible for freeing the slaves through the Emancipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
But, much like the Democrats today, the Republican Party of that era took the black vote for granted. The Republicans thought, “How could a black American not vote for the candidate of the Party of Abraham Lincoln?” Or, as a Democrat might say it today, “How could an African American not vote for the party whose president signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965?”
The Republicans made an effort to keep the black vote in 1936, seeing that the Democrats were contesting it. But the GOP did not match the effort by the Democrats, which included sending out more than a million copies of a photograph of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt with black Americans in the White House. On Sept. 22, 1936, more than 16,000 black Americans gathered in Madison Square Garden to celebrate Emancipation Day and support Roosevelt. The Republicans should have been worried, but they weren’t.
A similar seminal event took place on Jan. 20, 2019, when a huge “Blexit” rally was held in Los Angeles. Although smaller than the 1936 event in New York City on behalf of FDR, this big rally celebrated the exit of black Americans from the Democratic Party to support President Trump in 2020.
More than one thousand black former Democrats enthusiastically celebrated their escape from the Democratic Party of handouts to the Republican Party of opportunity and prosperity. And, as with the reaction of Republican big wigs in 1936, Democrat politicians yawned and dismissed it as a non-event, even though similar rallies in other big U.S. cities were announced that night.
Clearly, Trump’s attention to black voters, his signing of the First Step prison reform bill, and his policies creating the lowest unemployment rate for black Americans in history have had an impact.
Also important, a number of prominent black Americans who have moved from the Democratic Party to back Trump, such as Candace Owens, and the recording star Kanye West, have not done so quietly, nor have they acted defensively. They have refused to be shamed into silence by the Democrats and the left-leaning news media. Instead, like their forbears in the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 60s, they have gone on offense, courageously exposing the fact that the policies of today’s Democratic Party are often completely foreign to the values and aspirations of black Americans.
Perhaps that’s why current polls show black support for Trump approaching 30% — a dangerously high number for Democrats. If Trump wins even that much of the black vote, he will be reelected in a landslide. The movement of black Americans to Trump may not be as dramatic as the shift to FDR in 1936, but it may well be significant enough to create a red wave victory in 2020. source
