There’s The Real Problem

Phyllis Schlafly thinks minority outreach by the GOP is a waste of time.

Calling the GOP’s need to reach out to Latinos a “great myth,” Schlafly said that “the people the Republicans should reach out to are the white votes, the white voters who didn’t vote in the last election.” Schlafly accused the Republican “establishment” of nominating “a series of losers…who don’t connect with the grassroots.”

Here’s an idea: get them their own cable TV news channel where they can hear all the good news about what white folk are doing to combat the evil Kenyan secret gay Muslim, and then get a bunch of corporations to secretly back a “grassroots” effort of cranky old white folks with costumes and signs comparing the president to Nazis to demonstrate and demand that the government keep their hands off Medicare.  That will work.

3 barks and woofs on “There’s The Real Problem

  1. “the people the Republicans should reach out to are the white votes, the white voters who didn’t vote in the last election.”

    Has it occurred to her that not every “white voter” voted GOTea in 2012? That some of the “white voters” just might not have had tribal/ethnic impulses (like hers) when at the ballot box, and voted for the best candidate (who just happened to be black)?

    I’ll take that as a “NO,” then…

  2. By my reckoning Schlafly has to be 95 years old – which of course doesn’t rule out her freedom to spout off, but does perhaps allow us to ignore her. Silly old woman . . .
