A pastor claims that Vice President Joe Biden’s remarks about Republicans putting black people in chains was not off the mark. But the twist is that the pastor himself believes that it’s the Democrats who have been seeking to keep people in chains, not the Republicans.
Rev. CL Bryant, who does not appear to be a very big fan of President Barack Obama, is one of the people behind the new documentary “Runaway Slave.” He says that the Democrats have been controlling black people for a very long time and kept them in slavery with social programs, pandering and taking their vote for granted.
“You’re already there!” said Bryant. “Chained to the highest unemployment rate, chained to debt, chained to a 40 percent abortion rate!”
Speaking in Virginia to a mostly African American audience, Biden said that the Republicans are going to “put ya’ll back in chains” by letting banks write their own rules.
The Republicans immediately fired back, stating that Biden has gone too far in his comments.
“After weeks of slanderous and baseless accusations leveled against Governor Romney, the Obama campaign has reached a new low,” Romney spokesperson Andrea Saul said in a statement. “The comments made by the Vice President of the United States are not acceptable in our political discourse and demonstrate yet again that the Obama Campaign will say and do anything to win this election. President Obama should tell the American people whether he agrees with Joe Biden’s comments.”
Bryant feels that part of the reason that black people are suffering so much is because they pin too many of their hopes onto the Democratic Party.
“This is a reflection of the history of the democratic party. Their hypocrisy toward blacks was reinforced by this statement made by VP Joe Biden when he used the party’s timeless tactic: fear,” Bryant said. “Just another attempt to enslave the vote of a people they have long taken for granted. Also that the VP from the east coast would say ‘Put chains on y’all’ is evidence of blatant, shameless and misguided pandering to Black folks.”
