“…for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves.”-Isaiah 28:15
George Allen’s confederate bandwagon of confused colored folks has grown by another this week. His name: State Senator Benjamin “Bennie” Lambert-(D) of Richmond. (pictured on the right.)
Lambert’s stated reason for endorsing the Republican Senator is some purported heavy lifting by Allen for the state’s black colleges and universities back in Washington. Lambert wrote his confederate representative and said, “We have worked together for the past 20 years: when we served in the House of Delegates together, during your tenure as Governor, as a Congressman and now as Virginia’s junior Senator. Because we have worked well together over the years on many issues, and especially because you have delivered on your promises to support Virginia’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities, I am pleased to support you in your re-election to the U.S. Senate.”
Lambert omitted the fact that Senator Allen supported a cut of $12 billion in student aid programs in November of 2005.
The House Committee on Education and the Workforce democrats website states:
• This Republican Raid on Student Aid represents the largest single cut to the federal student aid programs ever.
• The Raid on Student Aid picks the pockets of students and families in order to pay for new tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans.
• The Raid on Student Aid puts college even further out of reach for millions of Americans just at a time when they are already struggling with rising college costs.
Take it from me, the vast majority of students at HBCU’s attend those institutions on some form of federal financial aid. In fact, we disproportionately rely on federal aid. More than 85% of black students would not be in school without it. These cuts will make it harder for their parents and for them to borrow money for the costs of college and will exponentially increase their debt load upon graduation.
Dr. William R. Harvey, President of Hampton University (pictured on the left) has been confused for the better part of the last twenty years. In that time frame, he has spread his money around to some of the most undeserving of Republican politicians, giving at least $25,000 to GOP candidates according to state and federal databases.
The illustrious right wingers who’ve benefited from Harvey’s generosity are: George Allen $2100, George W. Bush $4000, Fmr VA Atty Gen Mark Earley $2000, Fmr VA Congressman Herb Bateman $2500, Sen. John Warner $1500, Fmr VA Senator Paul Trible $1000, Fmr NY Congressman Rick Lazio $1000, NC Senator Elizabeth Dole $1000, VA Congresswoman Jo Ann Davis $1000, and the Republican National Committee $1000.
Dr. Harvey allowed Senator Allen to use Hampton University as a convenient negro backdrop to attack his democratic opponent’s record on Affirmative Action during Macacagate.
Dr. Harvey and Senator Lambert have conveniently forgotten this embarrassing episode and the lingering questions about Senator Allen’s undercover racial attitudes. The bastard didn’t come clean about the Macaca incident nor has he been upfront about his cavorting with the Brooks Brothers suited racists in the Council of Conservative Citizens.
Moreover, the balance of his record on Bush’s federal judicial appointments is one of the most extreme and is quite inimical to the interests of the African American community. Both Bush appointees John Roberts and Samuel Alito will be in the majority on the supreme court striking down aspects of Affirmative Action.
For these manifestly fraudulent endorsements, these contemptable black sycophants have earned themselves Skeptical Brotha’s “2006 House Negroes of the Year Award.”
