Most Blacks, Latinos Voted For Proposition 8
Proposition 8, on California's ballot on Tuesday, Nov. 7, confirmed marriage in that state as being only between one man and one woman. Blacks and Latinos, wrote the Washington Post, are the ones who "drove a stake through the heart of same-sex marriage" by overwhelmingly voting in favor of Prop. 8. However, Sodom-Americans are unhappy that the people have spoken in a democratically held, free election. They have been busy protesting the vote cast by the people of California and vow to fight it, but at least one of their tactics is unfair: They are blaming the Mormons. Yah, a church over in Utah which had nothing to do with the passage of Prop. 8. Utah residents did not vote on California's ballots. It is doubtful that most Blacks and Latinos pay any attention to what the Church of the Latter Day Saints recommends. Rather, in large part, Blacks and Latinos overwhelmingly voter for Prop. 8. Ah, but the Democrats and the Far Left don't want that to be known, because then they'd have to lay blame on a huge part of their own constituency. In fact, they and their allies in the mainstream media are actively covering it up. A search today for the story online turned up this, at MSNBC: Most Calif. blacks backed proposition 8 53 percent of Latinos also supported the gay-marriage ban High black voter turnout helped pass Prop 8 Nov. 6: California voters narrowly approved a measure to ban same-sex marriage, reversing a court decision in May that allowed it. NBC's Pete Williams reports. The page you are seeking has expired and is no longer available at msnbc.com. However, it may be available at The Washington Post. So, MSNBC dropped the story. (Perhaps somebody at the DNC made a terse phone call.) When you try to follow the link over to the Washington Post, however, you land on a general page with nothing related to the story. After doing a search of the Post's site for "blacks, latinos, Proposition 8," we finally found "Most of California's Black Voters Backed Gay Marriage Ban: 53% of Latinos Also Supported Proposition 8" among other stories. Why the link was changed, thereby making the story difficult to find, is mysterious. To be fair, however, the Post did write a hard-hitting, straight talking (no pun intended) article. The first paragraph sums it up nicely, with a good example of the inverted pyramid: Any notion that Tuesday's election represented a liberal juggernaut must overcome a detail from the voting booths of California: The same voters who turned out strongest for Barack Obama also drove a stake through the heart of same-sex marriage. Did you catch that? Let's repeat it. "The same voters who turned out strongest for Barack Obama also drove a stake through the heart of same-sex marriage." Those "same voters" are none other than Blacks and Latinos, reliable lock-step Democrat voters on most issues. Not, however, on the issue of men marrying men or women marrying women. Meanwhile, we continue to see headlines such as "Citizens Rally Against Proposition 8." QUESTION: Why are we not seeing headlines that say, "Citizens Overwhelmingly Voted For Proposition 8?" ANSWER: The Leftists and their useful idiots are the ones writing the headlines in the news rooms.
