Jeb Bush is continuing the Republican tradition of alienating itself from minority communities. While speaking with a group in South Carolina, Jeb made a point to tell the crowd that he would stop letting African Americans freeload.
Our message is one of hope and aspiration. It isn’t one of division and get in line and we’ll take care of you with free stuff. Our message is one that is uplifting – that says you can achieve earned success.
After experiencing some backlash, Jeb’s campaign attempted to engage in some damage control and explain that his message wasn’t supposed to be just about black voters, although he was responding to a question about them specifically. Instead, his message applied to all Americans.
We will never be successful in elections without communicating that conservative principles and conservative policies are the only path to restoring the right to rise for every single American.
