The history of slavery in America is always there and will always be there. Unfortunately, it's a grossly distorted view of history that wins the day. That view is that the Republican Party is the party of slavery, Jim Crow laws, the KKK, racism, etc. etc. etc. The reality is just the opposite. All of those things - all of them - can be laid at the feet of the Democratic Party. Yet, despite all of this, blacks overwhelmingly vote Democrat election after election.
As for slavery, Barack Obama's Middle East policy has facilitated the overthrow of Egypt's Hosni Mubarak, who has been replaced by the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi. Now Egypt is voting on a draft of its constitution and, guess what? It looks like slavery is coming back.
Via the AP:
An Islamist-dominated panel is voting on Egypt's draft constitution, the country's first charter after the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak. The draft largely reflects the conservative vision of the Islamists, with articles that rights activists, liberals and Christians fear will lead to restrictions on the rights of women and minorities and civil liberties in general.As the GWP rightly points out, the Obama administration doesn't seem nearly prepared to go after Morsi the way it went after Romney when it comes to the issue of slavery, which neither Romney nor his Party had anything to do with.
Omissions of certain articles, such as bans on slavery or promises to adhere to international rights treaties, were equally worrying to critics of the new draft, who pulled out from the panel before the vote.
Via the AP:
The Obama administration is declining to criticize Egypt's draft constitution despite spirited internal debate over whether the document adequately protects women, religious minorities and dissenting voices.This time, the Democratic Party, which allegedly fights to prevent slavery from coming back at the hands of the Republican Party (according to Joe Biden), will be complicit - once again - in ushering in an age of slavery. The difference, of course, is that this time it will be slavery in Egypt.
Yet, 96% of blacks support Obama.
