Louisiana Voter: ‘I Don’t Vote For Black People. They Got Their Place, I Got Mine’ (Audio)

Recently, Louisiana’s Stupid Party has been attacking Sen. Mary Landrieu(D) in order to upset her re-election bid–and as usual, it seems to all be coming down to race. No, not Landrieu’s race–President Obama’s.

Unfortunately, as much as conservatives insist it’s over, racism still exists in the world today. One popular method of discrediting the incumbent Senator is, of course, for Koch-funded Americans For Prosperity and other similar groups to run ads attacking Landrieu’s support of President Obama. One such ad, since apparently they couldn’t find anyone with a reasonable objection to the President, features paid actors  in order to spread anti-Obamacare propaganda. Of the ad, Friends of Mary Landrieu Campaign Manager Adam Sullivan told ABC News:

“Hiring professional actors to impersonate Louisiana families is low even for the billionaire Koch brothers. If the Koch brothers had even a shred of credibility before launching their latest misleading ad campaign against Sen. Landrieu, they’ve surely lost it now.”

NPR decided to find out what real Louisiana residents thought of the President, and it wasn’t pretty! Elsa Chang visited with residents in Lafourche Parish where, in November, council chair Lindel Toups attempted to defund a library to build a jail because Mexicans, junkies, hippies, and “food stamps” use libraries. She met with many residents, and found Obamacare to be a touchy issue with many residents–but one particular man stood out!

Beau Broussard remembers the last time a politician stopped by. “He brought some white beans. And, lady, they were delicious. Ooh, I’d vote for him just for them white bean.” Who was the man? What office was he seeking? Broussard isn’t quite sure.  “I don’t even remember who – what he running for,” he said.

Obviously a well-informed and responsible voter, Broussard goes on to explain what would cause someone to not receive his vote: supporting the Affordable Care Act, for one. Broussard doesn’t care that Louisiana’s poverty rate is one of the highest in the nation, or that over 15% are entirely uninsured–he cares that the government is forcing people to buy insurance (though he would likely qualify for some fairly generous subsidies). Most of all, he cares that the ACA is President Obama’s signature law. He doesn’t like, nor did he vote for the President in 2008–before Obamacare was even an issue.

When asked why the President did not earn his vote in 2008, Broussard offered his reasoning: ” Uh-uh. I don’t vote for black people, lady. No, ma’am. I don’t vote for black people. They got their place. I got my place. That’s the way I was raised.”

Well, there you have it folks–the President is black, and his blackness affects all who agree with him on any issue at any point. Glad we were able to clear that up.

  1. You mean he could not find anyone in Louisiana who voted for Obama simply because he is black. He could also not find anyone who disagreed with Democrats regardless of color.

  2. This Broussard character isn’t a republican and he isn’t conservative.. he’s a democrat, a supporter of Mary Landreau.. not once is there any reason given to label him as such.. In case the lofo voters here weren’t taught history, the party of slavery is the democrats, the party that wrote the Jim Crow laws, was the democrat party, the party that formed the KKK as an arm of it, was the democrat party. And no, the democrats and republicans didn’t change place, the southern strategy wasn’t about race, but economics. The same democrats who voted against civil rights legislation in 1957, Senators John F Jennedy Jr, Al Gore Sr, William Fulbright, Robert Byrd, Lyndon Johnson, and so on, were still democrats in the 1960s and stayed democrats. Broussard is a democrat, and you shouldn’t be surprised, twitter, facebook, all the internet is filled with examples of white democrats, white leftists calling black republicans racist epithets for daring to vote against the interests of white leftist elites.

  3. My son, who is in the military, was stationed at Ft. Polk in Louisiana, could not eat a certain restaurants because he is Hispanic. The military actually tells the minorities they are not allowed to go to these places because of their race. Absurd!!! It seems the military has base in all these red states. Considering the diversity of our military maybe they should start closing these bases and see how these bigots like not having the money spent by these troops. I bet this guy is one of those chest thumping I support the troops kind of guy. As long as they are white!!!

  4. So of course you would go find the most backward resident you could find to make Louisiana nothing but ignorant racist jerks. What a joke. Not all of us are ignorant nor are we all racist and we STILL don’t like or agree with the senator or the president. I don’t care what color they are.

    • i can’t help but feel you stopped just short of saying “besides, some of my best friends are black.” just an impression i got.

    • @meg ray, the point is not that there are some smart and informed people in your state. The point is that the ads are blatant lies using paid actors (maybe they are tired of the false ACA rants being debunked) and they are doing so to target those who are pre-disposed to accept these claims without question.

      The article did not say this Beau Broussard guy was the norm, just one of the most extreme examples of why these ads are so insidious.

  5. Sounds like some people are still fighting the Civil War !! PItiful !

  6. Just as a great number of right wingers make the ridiculous claim that no one objects to the president’s race, that it’s only his policies that upset them, it’s also absurd to brand all opposition to Obama racist. Why can’t both sides face the facts: Yes, racism is still out there, particularly among undereducated folks over 30, and yes, some folks are not racists and still think he’s a lousy president. Finding examples of mouth breathers who are full of hate is sickening, but I think that by concentrating on people like that it’s easy to lose sight of those who are victims of the Kochs and their poison, but truly have no problem with race. My belief and hope is that the bigots are a dying breed, but I fear the anti-government/gun hoarder types won’t go away quite so easily.

    • No Tony, we won’t go away… easily or any other way. In fact, we anti-government pro-firearm types are increasing exponentially, while you dim-minded, statist, government worshipping authoritarian types are going extinct. Good riddance when you’re finally gone to the point of irrelevance.

      • i have to ask, being anti-government, does that mean that you will decline any social security or medicare money coming your way, if and when you reach the qualifying age? do you intend to not accept any funds to build or repair your infrastructure? do you wish to dismiss our military as irrelevant to your country’s protection? do you intend to stop voting since, being anti-government (apparently unless it totally agrees with your point of view), is simply an act in futility? how about deregulating all business, stop government funded drug development, food inspection, port security, border control? and no police and fire department for you. after all, they’re government. well, i hope you, your dirt roads, outhouse and non-electric cabin will be very happy, but at least you’ll have your guns to snuggle up to when all the countries that do have a government roll over your precious relevance and grind you into mulch. but, hey, you stood your holier-than-thou, pro-gun, anti-government ground. bravo! p.s. btw, according to a recent survey reported by raw, the tea party is at it’s lowest point since it’s inception, but of course you will dismiss it as a leftist liberal media lie since they can’t be trusted to tell the truth on anything.

  7. at least he’s honest. like most t-pers, he doesn’t try to qualify it by saying “but i’m not racist?” that being said, i still consider him a moron, but bless his pea-pickin’ little heart.
