Mia B. Love – “One of the 10 most important races in the country this year”

Mia B. Love – “One of the 10 most important races in the country this year”

It’s always interesting to see how the MSM covers a story we have been covering for several months, but the MSM acts amazed.

This time it’s Mia B. Love, being interviewed by Jonathan Karl of ABC News:

Mia Love is unlike any Congressional candidate ever — she is African-American, she is Mormon, and she is conservative. Republicans have deemed her race in Utah’s newly drawn 4th district one of the top ten most important races in the country, vowing to spare no expense to get her to Congress. If she wins, Love would be the first black Republican woman ever elected to the House of Representatives.

Heh… If she were to win she could then join the Congressional Black Caucus and together with Allen West, annoy the rest of the core membership in stereo!

I love it!!!

She is Caribbean, of Caribbean ancestry, I mean. That she is first generation American means that she would be termed an “Arrivant” by black Americans who wish to distinguish between themselves, “Descendants,” and other blacks, especially when the others make it to Ivy colleges.

So, just call Mia B. Love “American” because she lacks the right kind of “slave blood” to be African-American.

I kid you not. I’m deadly serious. That’s how some folks out there think.

The “American” label is a fine one. Let’s not muddy it.

    The lady does have about the same “slave blood ‘ as at best Elizabeth Warren. has Cherokee.

    Haiti was a French slave colony & revolted 1790-1804 about the time of OC Sarah Smith.

    Her parents emigrated legally therefor she is American born Haitian ancestry. First generation she could be Haitian -American . I think that is an acceptable level of hyphenated being. After that her kids should just be Americans.

    There may be some residual Francophone influence from her parents but they seem to have been keen assimilators.

    The African Union has lost its champion in Ghaddaffi but Haiti has applied to join.I am not sure the AU needs another hopeless impoverished voodoo population. But I guess it is like The Rastafarians & Ethiopia.

    I guess they were turned down by the EU.

      Most Western blacks have slave ancestry; some don’t cuz their ancestors were never slaves. Some have slave owner blood cuz that’s how stuff rolled in those days. Not every slave owner was white. Some folks in this country deem that the only slavery experience that is of “merit” is that which happened in the USA; so, they create distinctions where none should be for the sake of affirmative action. Mia B. Love is of the school of thought that says what happened is not cause for eternal grievance but for building a foundation that assures it doesn’t recur.

      The last I looked at a map, Haiti in is the Caribbean. The Francophone Caribbean, to be precise.

      The point is simply this: we are all Americans, born, naturalized, whatever. Let us never forget our heritage and the language of our forbears even as we remember to what nation and flag we pledge allegiance.We are here. We are unhyphenated American.That’s what the passport says.

      So, we are American. That is enough for Mia B. Love. It should be enough for those who report her story. No need for hyphens. One can acknowledge a person’s ancestry without any orthographic balkanization of us as a people.

      No need to slap at Haiti, either. They did what many tried to do unsuccessfully, and they paid a devastating price in deliberate economic isolation and destruction from that point onwards. Unfortunately, they acquired bad habits of governance that ensured poverty and economic nihilism.

        Where did I say Haiti was not in the Caribbean ? However just like the delusional Jamaican Rastas Haiti is these days looking to Africa. It is they who have applied to join the African Union.

        You are the one making excuses for Haitii. 200 years is an awful long time to be the basket case of the Caribbean.

    But then how did Obama get into Columbia as a third year transfer? Or into Harvard Law as a non-honors grad of Columbia?

Please keep giving us periodic reminders, Prof – am willing to support her (already have) but get busy and forget to donate.

I expect to see really good things from this lady.

See seems to really have some most excellent qualities.

Historic, unprecedented…

OK if the GOP is “sparing no expense”, she has the full weight of the GOP behind her campaign then why is Mia in need of some Love .. err support?

I absolutely agree with the assessment that Mia B Love’s Congressional candidacy, then officially elected to Congress, would be a major milestone in the fabric of Republican Party Politics. She would not only give support to other Congressmen like Rep. Col Allen West, but she would henceforward forever change the face of the Republican Party, not just by her race and gender, but by making the statement, which is what the Tea Party Patriotic American people have been saying all along, that the issue is one of ideology, and not race and or gender politics, which is what is at the core of this political National fight we are now engaged in, ie; the saving and restoration of our Nation as U.S. Constitutional Republic.

The ideology that I spoke of is of the very core of our foundation as a Nation- Individual Freedom, Liberty, Equal Justice, Free Market Capitalism, Democracy where the People are the ultimate power in the Nation, Respect for the Individual’s sovereignty, ie; all that embodies and encompasses Goodness and Decency in this world.

Of course, this is what and why they, the Obamacratic far left, (and unfortunately along with the liberal Progressive RINO Right), hates and despises Constitutional Conservatives Reagan Republicans, who represent that ideology like Gov. Sarah Palin, Rep. Michelle Bachmann, Sen Jim DeMint, Rep. Allen West, etc..

With Mia B Love’s election, and with many like her to follow, will ensure and reinforce that ideology is first and foremost at the forefront of what we stand for.

Love represents a segment of our society which is under-served: black conservatives. They have always been out there – in fact, in every periodic “issues” survey since the first one in the early ’80s, blacks have been more supportive than whites of “conservative issues” like opposing abortion, supporting military action, lowering taxes, tough crime laws, and even the death penalty, among others.

Conservatives continue to suffer for the conservative opposition to the ’64 Civil Rights Act and ’65 Voting Rights Act. Spare me the protests about how it was Democrats opposing those and Republicans supporting, the Southern Dems who opposed all (except Richard Russell) left for the GOP, and the GOP supporters would be run out of the party as RINOs today.

As a result, black conservatives feel a lot of pressure. It takes a very special person to stand up and tell 95% of the people in your life that they don’t know what the heck they are talking about politically.

People like Love, West, and Tim Scott can help make it easier for those out there to find that courage.

Ummm … Jonathan Karl and all you other “professional” newspeople whose job it is to be up on all the latest, breaking news,

… why are you always so far behind LI and other blogs when it comes to this kind of story? Readers of the top conservative blogs have known about Ms. Love for quite some time now …. and we aren’t professional newspeople … we have other jobs and read these blogs when we have a spare few minutes … yet we always seem to know about these stories long before you find out about them.

Anyway … Go, Mia!!
