There are a number of positions the left must support for them to retain power.
This is because much of their underlying beliefs are just plain wrong, or in some cases, dangerous and insulting.
Whether or not people’s lives are made better takes a distant second for many liberals to staying in power. And this is the case regardless of one’s race.
In fact, race is a very powerful card that the left uses to good effect. African-Americans are a significant power block for liberals, and it’s one they dare not lose.
Hence, when a black conservative gains some prominence, they can expect to be attacked from the left.
The legitimacy of this attack has nothing to do with the accuracy of the claims, of course, which are typically false.
Case in point: Television star and entertainer Chelsea Handler has launched a broadside against Stacy Dash, calling her a “black white supremacist.”
This term needs some explaining: Apparently Handler it refers to a black person who believes they are inferior to whites.
This is really an attack on black conservatives, who liberals such as Handler believes must be discredited. However, she did not have long to wait for a reply from Stacy Dash.
In a post on Young Conservatives, Dash noted:
“Myself, Ben Carson, Sheriff David Clarke are ‘white supremacists’ in black skin. Is that it?
Because we disagree with the liberal, Left agenda–a wealthy, white liberal celebrity gets to slander a brilliant and famous neurosurgeon, a respected man of the law, and me?
There’s an opportunity to invoke white privilege here somewhere, I’m sure. Wait, I forgot, that’s a title exclusive to conservatives only.“
“So…I’m a black white supremacist? It’s a stupid thing to say and it’s not funny.
Liberals will laugh at anything at anyone’s expense because they pass it off as ‘I’m sticking up for YOU.’
See, I get paid millions to sit at this desk, walk across this air-conditioned outside red carpet, fly in these jets and I get to tell YOU how to save the environment and fight climate change.
I get to tell YOU who to vote for. I get to tell YOU how to think and what to think about people who challenge this progressive way of thinking that allows me to keep this opulent lifestyle.”

As she says, it’s a stupid thing to say, or better yet, it’s a desperate thing to say.
To repeat, the Democratic party is profoundly dependent on the black vote. Therefore, any prominent black who is a conservative must be marginalized, denigrated, or ridiculed.
They most certainly must be portrayed as someone outside the mainstream of the “black experience,” whatever than now means.
With that in mind, Chelsea Handler is just following the leftist script:
If someone is a prominent American and rejects the liberal dogma or otherwise refuses to bow before the Democratic Party, attack.
It’s disingenuous. And its demeaning to African-Americans. And it’s just liberals at work, as usual.
