Confirmed: Democrats Use Blacks, Hispanics, and the Poor as Political Pawns
This caught my attention. Hilario Yanez who “once praised President Barack Obama for his executive order that protected Yanez and hundreds of thousands of other illegal aliens from deportation, gave them work permits, and allowed them to attend American colleges and universities,” has changed his tune. Yanez recently stated that “Democrat leaders have ‘no clear message’ on immigration other than to ‘us[e] us as pawns.’”
Politicians have been using the poor as pawns for decades. Actually, they’ve been using all of us as pawns.
Some of the poorest and most rundown cities in the United States are run by Democrats. Since Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society anti-poverty programs were put in place during the 1960s, trillions of dollars have been spent to lift people out of poverty. The needle has not moved. We still have millions of poor (some estimate it’s around 50 million) people trapped in the welfare web.
Test scores among backs are down. Women having babies outside of wedlock have soared. Black-on-black violence has affected some of our nations largest cities. Food stamp recipients are in the 50 million range.

Leftist policies that have created the welfare-dependant society that we have today and Republicans often supported them for fear of being labeled “racist” and “anti-poor.” Wes Moore writes, “America has a shameful history of instituting policies that have put people into poverty and kept them there.” (Time) It’s unfortunate, however, that he advocates more of the same. “If the programs were only made better,” is what we often hear. Or, “If we just had more money.” The programs ARE the problem.
When economic and limited government principles are jettisoned in favor programs that have no sound economic base, the results will always be disastrous since the program builders cannot predict the unintended long-term consequences. Dr. Gary North writes:
Men are not omniscient. They are bounded by uncertainty. The free market offers a way to deal with this uncertainty: entrepreneurship. Men of necessity must face the future. They do their best to see what is coming. They delegate to specialists in forecasting the responsibility of allocating resources for future production. Then consumers bid against each other for these goods and services. By their bids, they bless certain entrepreneurs with profits, but thereby curse others with losses. Through the incessant process of resource allocation and bidding, individuals shape the world in which they live.
No program can do these things. Billions of economic transactions take place every day for reasons unknown to the planners.
While the economy is booming, we forget that our government takes more and more of that production in the form of taxes to pay people to stay poor. There is a disincentive to look for work when subsidies pay an equal amount to stay home. Is this on purpose? I believe it is.
The reduction of taxes has created a massive pool of money that is resulting in bonuses, expansion, hiring, pay increases. All of these effects should help many poor people, but those in the halls of power don’t want success that is independent of their management.
To show that blacks have been brainwashed into accepting their role as pawns, they’ve bought into the deception that the only good black baby is a dead black baby. The best Democrats can do is to tell black women that it’s safer to kill their children via an abortion than to give birth. When you can get women to kill their unborn children in the name of an ideology, you know you have them.
In New York City, more black babies are aborted than born alive. This is the Democrat Party with the GOP not far behind:
