“WILL YOU BE VOTING FOR CLAIRE MCCASKILL IN NOVEMBER? HERE’S WHY YOU SHOULDN’T……
They all “gifted” her their votes, using their influence to “cape” for her without “forcing” her to work for it. She has unapologetically ignored our concerns, intentionally avoided our community, and insulted our activist while making white rural Missouri her top priority.
Black folks, I want you to see who Claire Mccaskill truly is…
A “bobble head” who can’t be trusted. We should NOT vote for her just because we need to keep a democratic senate seat. She does not care about African Americans and we’ve got to stop giving these type of politicians our votes just because they are “democrat”.
Her priorities …..
She scheduled 50 town hall meetings in rural Missouri talking to Donald Trump supporters but JUST OPENED HER OFFICE IN FERGUSON less than six months before the mid-term elections and 4 YEARS AFTER the Michael Brown uprising but she cares about your concerns?
During the 50 town hall meetings, ‘out of touch’ Claire, tried to serenade Donald Trump voters, saying things like; “People who deface statues should be prosecuted and we shouldn’t try to impeach Trump, even if he had recently suggested that protesters standing with Nazis and white supremacists were “very fine people.” – What?
If you think that’s bad, When House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called for Confederate statues to be removed from the Capitol, McCaskill wouldn’t say whether she agreed. When asked specifically about monuments in Missouri, she said: “I think it should be up to each local community”. Still, she wouldn’t say confederate monuments should be taken down no matter where they are.
When Missouri State Representative Bruce Franks said; “I’m going to vote for Claire, but Claire is going to have to bring her ass to St. Louis”. Claire responded by asking Black leaders to “push back” against criticism from Bruce Franks and others by signing a letter. Nobody signed it. Wonder why?
Claire had her spokeswoman draft a letter supposedly in response to our State Reps concerns but the letter totally ignored his specific concerns and she didn’t even mention our community in the letter which said; “It doesn’t do any good to rant and rave if you can’t get anything done,” “Claire is not ashamed of the fact that she works in a bipartisan way — that’s the only way to accomplish anything, and Claire is focused on getting things done.” – This type of response suggests that Representative Bruce Franks and the community he serves “rants and raves’ and isn’t getting anything done. Her tone is totally unapologetic and arrogant. A disrespectful slap in the face.
When she was asked about her outreach within the African American community, Claire quickly points to ONE town hall meeting she held in a predominantly African American neighborhood as an example of her outreach. “I’m doing things like today. I am doing meet and greets. I’m trying to be everywhere I can possibly be to listen,”“I try to be the kind of senator who listens and responds to the needs of the African American community,” she said. – Really? That’s an outright lie!
Clair Mccaskill is becoming so desperate to win over republican moderates that she’s almost abandoned her own democratic party. She’s been a disrespectful arrogant slap in the face to the African American community and has all but distanced herself from Activist, calling them “crazy democrats”. This type of language could cause activist to be hurt.
When asked about senators confronted by shouting protesters, she used words like ‘incivility’ when describing protesters. “It is terrible,” she said of the protests around the Kavanaugh hearings. “And I have been victimized by this kind of ugliness, too,” McCaskill said. “Take a walk on my Twitter feed if you want to see ugly.”
This comes from a politician who is well aware that “resistance politics” could hurt her and so she’s distancing herself from the activist community. Who will forget? We won’t Claire. We won’t forget come November.
She sure knows how to use “Uncle Tom” pastors who have “chummed up” with the Trump administration when it benefits her… She sat in the front row seat at Concord Fortress of Hope Church and listened to one such pastor, Ronald Lindsay as he told his congregation. “Don’t be mad at Claire”. We want to make sure we support her’. But this pastor doesn’t care that Claire doesn’t support his congregants and won’t show up in their community to talk to them. Again, Black folks giving away their votes and asking for nothing in return. Even accepting insults.. It’s all ok. We forgive.. Black folks, wake up. Don’t allow your families to be influenced or led by these types of Uncle Tom, “ask for nothing”, types of pastors… They are easy sell-outs.
She had the nerve to accuse her GOP challenger, Republican state Attorney General Josh Hawley, of taking ‘dark- money’ and in announcing her “no vote on federal Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, Sen. Claire McCaskill, cited her belief that Kavanaugh would rule in favor of protecting “dark money” in politics but DID YOU KNOW, she worked with an organization by the name of BLACKPAC – an anti-white supremacy, anti- pro-black political power advocate whose mission was to register 100,000 black voters to help Claire win the election and THEY ARE FINANCIALLY BACKED BY RICH WHITE FOLKS and FUNDED BY DARK MONEY AS WELL. What a hypocrite!
While trying to convince Missouri voters that she is a strong ally and advocate for the poor, behind the scenes, Claire voted for spending bills which put money into the pockets of the companies her husband was invested in. It’s no coincidence that his companies won more than 100 million in funding during Mccaskill’s first and second terms. She’s a very rich woman. One that is no longer connected to her voter base. SHE HAS TO GO!
It’s time for the African American community to stand up to these types of democrats who take for granted our votes, avoid our community, and ignore our concerns. Just as we showed Hillary Clinton, Let’s show Claire Mccaskill. She’s made a huge mistake and we will not be voting for her November 6th 2018.
