SLIMING BYRON DONALDS

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JUNE 12,2024

     BYRON DONALDS IS A REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN FROM FLORIDA. YOU MAY HAVE HEARD OF HIM BECAUSE HE IS FREQUENTLY INTERVIEWED ON FOX NEWS.

     DONALDS IS ALSO BLACK. IN A RECENT SPEECH, DONALDS SAID THE BLACK FAMILY WAS BETTER OFF UNDER JIM CROW LAWS IN THE SOUTH THAN THEY ARE TODAY.

     THE LEFT JUMPED ON THAT REMARK AND TWISTED IT.

     AS USUAL THEY GOT IT WRONG. DONALDS WASN’T ENDORSING JIM CROW LAWS, WHICH BY THE WAY DEMOCRATS IMPOSED ON BLACK PEOPLE, SOMETHING THE MEDIA NEVER POINT OUT. DONALDS WAS MAKING THE POINT THAT DESPITE JIM CROW LAWS, BLACK FAMILIES HELD TOGETHER.

     HIS OTHER POINT WAS THAT THE WELFARE LAWS PASSED BY LYNDON JOHNSON AND A DEMOCRAT CONGRESS HURT BLACK FAMILIES. AMONG OTHER THINGS IT PAID YOUNG GIRLS WHO HAD BABIES OUT OF WHAT USED TO BE CALLED WEDLOCK AND WOULD PAY THEM ONLY IF THERE WAS NO MAN IN THE HOME. IN RESTROSPECT THOSE WELFARE POLICIES FAILED BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T ELEVATE PEOPLE OUT OF POVERTY; THEY SUBSIDIZED MANY IN THEIR POVERTY AND UNDERMINED THE WORK ETHIC.

     WATCH FOR MORE OF THIS DISINFORMATION FROM THE LEFT DURING THIS YEAR’S POISONOUS POLITICAL CAMPAIGN. I’M CAL THOMAS.
