So where is the outrage when a wealthy Los Angeles landowner, a liberal, seeks to evict the homeless simply because the man who has worked for years to provide them shelter is black and a REPUBLICAN?
Yep, just before Christmas, the evil lefty landlord lowered the boom with the impossible 600% increase in rent, and let it be known that his change in heart after many years is because he recently learned that Ted Hayes, the founder of this particular shelter known as Dome Village is a Republican.
Mr. Hayes, a black man with dredlocks and rather unusual attire had spoken to a local Republican club only days before the rent increase demand arrived. His appearance was reported in the LA Times. After receiving the rent demand, Heath called property owner Milton Sidley and was told: "This Democrat is tired of taking care of Ted Hayes. If you're such a Republican, you let the Republicans help you out from now on,' " Hayes said.
Hayes is not going quietly. In an email to supporters he said:
Yet, here in the land of the free and home of the brave, I can't freely express my political views without having to suffer consequences from a land owner to whom my organization has faithfully paid rent of $2,500 and annual fee of $10,000 taxes.California Conservative describes Haye's journey to conservatism this way:
This bigotry and racism has no place in this country nor anywhere else in the world. Also, what is strikingly disturbing, according to Democrats, it appears that being a Republican is already bad enough in and of itself, but to be Republican and BLACK is the worse thing that a person can be or do. It is wickedness! What is this phenomenon, that American Black people are not allowed to be openly Republican?
It is as though it was Republicans and not Democrats who held us as slaves; fought the government to keep us a slaves; placed us under the oppression of Jim Crow laws; denied us the right to vote; and destroyed the Black communities with the last forty years of indoctrinating us with Socialist philosophy of the welfare state.
Frankly, the disdain should be the very opposite, that being a Black Democrat is odious. In other words, knowing the truth of these two political parties, the question can be asked, "How can a Black be or remain a Democrat."
In light of our beloved nations racial history, it is racist for anyone Democrat, especially White Democrats to denigrate any Blacks who freely chooses to return or be a part of the Political party - REPUBLICAN that freed our ancestry from slavery by the shed blood, maiming and death of their young men.
Over the years, Hayes noticed that although LA's political powers were overwhelmingly liberal and Democrat, he saw patterns that suggested that those who controlled LA didn't want to resolve the problems of homelessness, drugs, and gangs. Instead, Hayes saw that LA's Democrats had a need to keep things the way they were; and that if someone ever fixed those problems, Democrats would lose control of the communities they had deliberately disenfranchised. Hayes found that Democrats perpetuate the problems of gangs, drugs, and homelessness to remain relevant.It's pretty obvious that Democrats care more about political power and that all their expressed concern for the poor, for the homeless, for blacks, or for national security is nothing but hot air. Will Barbara Streisand, Michael Moore, Howard Dean, Barbara Boxer or Jesse Jackson and the rest of the poverty pimps come forward to help the homeless about to be displaced in Los Angeles?
Don't hold your breath!
