More black conservatives come out of the closet

As I wrote in my book Guardian of the Republic in the chapter “Soul of our Souls,” slowly but surely a growing number of American blacks are reconnecting with conservative values and principles.

This isn’t something new to the black community contrary to what the liberal progressive media would have you believe. The conservative black movement dates back to Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington as well as others such as Asa Phillip Randolph. Of course “coming out of the closet” and declaring yourself a black conservative is certainly not as welcomed as exiting the closet to say you’re gay. However, more and more folks are demonstrating the moral courage to swim against the current.

This week, a new organization “came out” — the Black Conservatives Fund. According to their press release as reported in Communities Digital News, the Black Conservative Fund will begin raising funds and reaching out to the black community promoting constitutional policies and limited government. It is fully committed to supporting black conservatives who are dedicated to spreading the message of limited government and traditional values. The organization will support candidates through direct contributions in addition to web, TV, and radio advertisements.

You can visit their website here.

Anita Moncrief, a founding member on the Black Conservative Fund’s board of advisers, and the key whistleblower on the ACORN election fraud outlines the purpose and inspiration that is the foundation of BCF’s aims and objectives:

“All across America, black conservatives are running for office in record numbers. The lock that the liberals have held on the black vote is slowly but surely breaking. An entirely new generation of black leaders is stepping forward to help save this nation. They believe that the welfare state and corrupt education system are destroying our future. They understand that big government has created nothing but big problems. Not only that, they are willing to stand up and fight back against the Left-wing race baiters of the Democratic party.”

I believe one of the most important roles this new organization can play is in the area of educating blacks, especially in the inner city, on the failures of liberal progressives — to include President Barack Hussein Obama. It is imperative that the black community learns to invest its political capital not just in one side, as this blind loyalty has led to dismissal and condescension.

The education must go beyond simply “outreach” to principled policy inclusiveness articulated by individuals from within the community. Take for example school choice as we’ve often discussed here, and the fact that President Obama takes the side of the liberal progressive teachers unions over that of the deserving black children — as he displayed with his decision to cancel the DC school voucher program.

No one is under the illusion that the black community will become conservative overnight. But we must remind our community that its heart, we have always been conservative. Some will make the informed choice — not all — but if there is a 20-25 percent change in the voting patterns of the black community, well, that is success. And if we can get more blacks elected as conservatives at the state and local level, we begin to turn the tide.

I look forward to working with the Black Conservative Fund as we share the same aims. The Allen West Foundation seeks to educate minority communities about conservative principles and values. And the Allen West Guardian Fund is focused on supporting and electing minority and military conservatives. Movements start with the people, not with politicians.

God bless Col West and all black-Americans who are daring to come forward. It takes courage to speak truth to relatives and friends who are so totally in the tank for the Dem Party. This isn’t about left or right, Dem or Repub. Its about ideas that will either destroy us or bring us up. Question authority…yes even when that authority is the Dem party.

No need for a White Conservative Fund, as the majority of Conservatives are White and therefore don’t need to be reached out to.
But, I’m sure you probably were smart enough to figure that out for yourself eh?

Black conservative are nothing but jokes. They are nothing but mouthpieces for the white conservatives who have them tow their white conservative line, as well as defend and apologies for racism. Blk conservative are easy to blame other blks, Obama, liberals and the media for their own problems and never come up with any real solutions. That’s why very few blacks want to hear your message, they feel blk conservative don’t represent them. Guess what blks conservative, Obama isn’t the only one who has influence, controls our money and makes legislation. Where’s the outrage over cuts and defunded social programs… Read more »

….what are you so afraid of? Fear?….Afraid that your krap isn’t going to stick anymore? That your proven lies are ten fold every time you and your party open your mouth to defend a bigger lie.

Where is the black conservatives response to gun violence in Chicago, stop and firk , affirmation action, stand your ground, racism? nothing until FOX talking pts- Blane Obama. After the Zimmerman verdict, West wasn’t on FOX until 5 days and he said Blame racist Obama. True sir , but if You had a son, wearing a hoodie, walking in a neighborhood he’s not familiar , don ‘t be surprised if he get stopped and qestioned. Of course he would be the frist one to pull the ” do you know who my father is ?” Card

No, I believe all opinions are welcomed in a democratic nation.

So you are saying that blacks cannot think for themselves? that they are merely puppets for white people? Wow talk about being racist. You aren’t the one who should be calling blacks ignorant. You show a lot of ignorance yourself. You cannot complete sentences, you cannot spell correctly nor do you use the correct words.

Other black conservatives need to have the same attitude and think how Allen West did when he entered the belly of the beast unafraid and joined the Congressional Black Caucus (which of course, was filled with Democrat butt-kissing cowards at the time).

There’s no courage in being a black liberal that demands free stuff all the time. You get lots of support from the party of “give me something for nothing.” They take from their political enemies to buy votes, all with the Marxist goal of stealing what others have earned and destroying freedom. Courage is a black conservative willing to step-up and simultaneously fight white and black racists while being libeled and slandered with cruel rhetoric. God Bless Colonel West.

James H Watschke

I find this to be interesting. Most black alleged ‘Christian’ leaders we see and hear from in the media, Jackson, Sharpton, Obama, Winfrey, certainly DO NOT espouse traditional or Christian values, although they may claim to. They just use lip service to various religious groups, like Republicans do to right-wing Christians, in order to fill the voting booths in their favor. I’ve literally heard both Pres. Obama and Oprah claim to be Christian in one interview then deny the gospel in the same breath.

..What beliefs…..maybe MLK can help you….

Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote in his
autobiography:

“The Republican Party geared its appeal and program to racism, reaction,
and extremism.”

That was his description of the 1964 Republican National Convention. He also
referred to the Republican convention as “the frenzied wedding at the Cow
Palace of the KKK with the radical right.”

Like Rand Paul said…”the republican is the same as it’s always been”…

“The environment inside the Republican Party today is a treacherous moral swamp for African-Americans. No black conservative figure has yet managed to remain in a position of influence inside the GOP while speaking honestly about racial questions. When an NAACP chairman derided Republican South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott recently as a “ventriloquist’s dummy” he touched a deep nerve. Going all the way back to Reconstruction, black conservatives have fought to justify their emphasis on economic progress against those who sought more direct resistance to injustice. That is a fine line to walk and it has never been easy. When black… Read more »
