With Friends Like Democrats, Black Americans Don’t Need Any Enemies

UNCFby Patricia L. Dickson   7/24/14
Union president, Lee Saunders, of the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees sent a letter to the United Negro College Fund President Michael Lomax announcing that the union was severing ties with UNCF because he accepted a donation of $25 million dollars from Koch Industries and the Charles Koch Foundation and spoke at a Koch-funded summit.

In a letter, Lee Saunders wrote  that he was “deeply troubled” by Michael Lomax’s  decision to accept $25 million from David and Charles Koch. He assumed that by accepting those funds Mr. Lomax was “in no way supporting or lending the name of the UNCF to the political or social causes view of the Koch brothers.” He then continued saying that he was “truly stunned” to learn that Mr. Lomax spoke at a Koch brothers summit in California and feels that it was a “betrayal” of everything the UNCF stands for and that his appearance at the summit could only be interpreted as “a sign of your personal support and the UNCF’s organizational support of the Koch brothers’ ideological program.”

The AFSCME is basically an arm of the Democrat Party and donates to Democrat candidates for office. The United Negro College Fund is the nation’s largest and most effective minority education organization that awards scholarships to students from low- and moderate-income families. It also provides financial support for its 37 member historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) for scholarships and capacity building.

The Koch brothers are wealthy conservatives that happen to be white and have donated considerable sums of money to various philanthropic efforts through their foundation. These two brothers are hated by the democrats for two main reasons: being wealthy and conservative. They have also donated considerable amounts of money to advance conservative political causes.

So, let me get this straight. The Democrat Party and all of its supporters claim to be the champions of black Americans. They claim that the Koch brothers are evil rich white racists. The supposedly racist Koch brothers donates $25 million to UNCF (probably the largest donation the organization has ever received) and the AFSCME president claims that the UNCF president has betrayed everything the UNCF stands for by accepting a donation that would help to educate millions of black American kids that probably would not have otherwise had an opportunity to attend college. Huh? What planet are these people living on? When will black Americans realize that they’ve been “ played” by the Democrat Party?

    It’s a simple matter of Hate. Liberals Hate the Kochs, and thus can’t abide anything that involves them in any way. Similarly, the majority of the NYC Council recently denounced WalMart (another group liberals Hate) for planning to make charitable contributions to their city. It’s a good lesson that naked Hate is the highest priority for liberals. “By their fruits you shall know them.” (I’ve also pointed out what this means regarding Sharia law after the Islamic State ordered all females aged 11 to 46 within its hell to undergo clitoridectomy.)

    Patricia let me know that her article is mentioned by Allen West here.

    Allen West is one of the few guys I would really like to see be president. Others I will settle for. But how about a West/Johnson ticket? West/Palin would be nice as well. Or West/Perry or Perry/West. Allen West is one of the very few straight-talkers in this country. Whatever the skin color, we need more of those.

    Well done, Patricia. You shot an arrow of truth into the air and look where it landed. I can’t wait until I get to see you on Fox News. 🙂

  3. I suspect the real reason for union president Saunders decision to sever ties with the UNCF is his inability to control Michael Lomax, UNCF’s president. The Koch brothers’ donation has put Democrats and their allies in a no win position even if the UNCF’s president would have rejected the donation. The Democrats and their media friend’s narrative that the Koch brothers are racist just blew up in their faces. How can they now explain that the Koch brothers are racist and want to keep blacks down when those same supposedly racist brothers donates millions to educate the same people that they are supposed to be trying to hold back? The so-called reasoning behind the racist narrative has to do with the Koch brothers’ support of voter ID laws. The entire narrative now appears illogical because it is not possible for someone to be for you and against you at the same time. The democrats are terrified that black kids will hear what the Koch brothers did and realize that they have been lied to. Once black kids learn of that lie, they may start to doubt everything that the Democrats have been telling them.
