I’m sorry, but that’s the only possible explanation for this:
There’s the part where one of the few black people in the GOP offers to bring the friend chicken and potato salad, because…well, watermelons are heavy? Then, there’s this:
The goal of this party from its inception about inclusion. How do I know that…well, Dan, it’s a pretty inclusive idea to say that black people are human beings and should not be slaves. When all the world was saying they are, our party said they’re not and they fought for it, and not only did they fight for it, they included it in such things like the Constitution…and the Bill of Rights…and they made it very clear and defined very clearly that we are one nation under God, indivisible, free. And that included everybody, and I think now is the time for us as a party to get back to one of those core principles – that one being paramount.
To clarify, Michael Steele just said that the Republican Party, founded in 1854, outlawed slavery by putting the 1954 version of a pledge written in 1892 in the Constitution in 1787, which in turn outlawed slavery in 1865, which was before the British did it in 1833.
Michael Steele makes Flava Flav look like Desmond Tutu.
