Trump Fuels Rise Of Black Conservatives

Daniel Cameron
As regular readers of CHQ know, we don’t do identity politics. Our one and only test of a candidate’s fitness for office is their adherence to the principles of the modern conservative movement – fidelity to the Constitution and the preservation of liberty under God’s laws.

However, as observers of the political environment we would be remiss not to observe and remark on an underreported phenomenon of the Trump era – the rise of a new and outspoken generation of conservative African American political candidates and political commentators.

The Democratic Party has long taken the African American vote for granted and practiced a vicious form of plantation politics through which the votes of African Americans have been harvested to elect and re-elect corrupt Democrat politicians who have left Black-majority cities and rural areas devasted wastelands of poverty and neglected infrastructure.

Donald Trump’s campaign question to Black communities: What have you got to lose? Seems to have empowered and embolden this group of younger African Americans to run for office and offer conservatism as the alternative to the Democrats’ long record of neglect.

And on Tuesday, one of the stars of this generation of Black conservatives was elected as Kentucky’s Attorney General.

As our friend John Gizzi reported, Daniel Jay Cameron is the Bluegrass State's first-ever black attorney general.

Mr. Cameron is an unabashed supporter of President Trump, and for his standing by Trump, John Gizzi reports Cameron faced highly personal attacks from Democrats and the civil rights establishment.

During the summer, civil rights attorney and radio talk show host Dawn Elliott wrote a much-publicized op-ed warning the Republican nominee to "stop eating the 'coon flakes' the White House is serving." Rather than distancing himself from Trump, Cameron wore his support of the president like an Olympic Gold Medal.

"The president is not racist — he is not!" he told Gizzi emphatically. "I assure you of that."

Cameron added he and Trump agreed on issues such as "the sanctity of life, the need to stop socialism in the U.S., and to stop illegal immigration."

President Trump enthusiastically endorsed Mr. Cameron, tweeting:

The Republican Party has a new STAR, his name is Daniel Cameron (@djaycameron), and he is running for Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Kentucky....

And contrary to what the establishment media would like you to believe, Cameron’s conservatism and close relationship with President Trump were not the kiss of death at the ballot box.

While making no secret of his conservative views and his support of President Donald Trump, Attorney General-elect Daniel Cameron rolled up 57% of the vote against a household name in Kentucky politics: former state Attorney General and liberal Democrat Grady Stumbo.

However, you won’t see much of anything about Daniel Jay Cameron and his victory or his support for President Trump in the establishment news media. We entered Attorney General-elect Cameron’s name in the Google News search engine and got exactly one hit about the election – John Gizzi’s article.

About those coon flakes...

Dawn Elliot suggests black Trump supporters are eating "coon flakes." But who among us are truly eating them? Trump doesn't have any racial baggage. Before he was a politician, he was a highly liked celebrity. He had all kinds of people on his Apprentice shows. Who was Omarosa, till she met Trump? During the election of 2016, you would see Katrina Pierson on TV all the time sticking up for Trump. Why would a racist have a black female as campaign spokesman? As president, he's had numerous minorities at the White House, including Kanye West, Jim Brown, Candace Owens and her "Blexit" group. Why is Ben Carson serving on his Cabinet? More broadly, why is Elaine Chao there? Racist people are more predictable than this. But people like Elliot will continue to assert it because they want to eat the coon flakes served up by the media and Democrat party. Meanwhile, actual racism is in their ranks. Hillary Clinton calling us "superpredators." Elizabeth Warren faking it, calling herself Native American to get herself teaching gigs as a minority hire. Ralph Northam, either in the KKK hood or in blackface in his yearbook photo. Never owned up to saying which person he was, but both are bad; either of those things would sink a Republican, but good ole Ralph still is the Governor of Virginia. Don't forget that Northam said he should stay, but if allegations against his Lt. Governor (black guy with "Me too" issues) was true, that guy needed to step down! Justin Trudeau of Canada, revealed to have preened in blackface numerous times. No problem! He can even get Barack Obama's endorsement after the fact. This is the same Obama who said the KKK would have a home in the White House if Trump won. The KKK, founded by Democrats, after Democrats lost the Civil War. Joe Biden, who once described Obama as the "first mainstream [AA] who is articulate...bright...clean and a nice-looking guy." Coon flakes? LBJ said he would have us voting Dem for the next 200 years. Looks like people like Elliot are eating them because they don't want to disappoint the Great Man.


As the knowledge of what the democrats stand for is now known by many people of ALL races, they can see that the democrats take from them in the form of taxes and their individual FREEDOMS and give virtually NOTHING back, Look at Elijah Cummings! He stole from them in Baltimore for many decades, they asked where their tax dollars went and all Elijah could do was lie, steal, deceive them! Everyone wants freedom and everyone hates to be STOLEN from, and ROBBED like the democrats have done since taxes were imposed by the Federal Government in 1913! FDR just made it even worse for all!
