I’m going to go extra innings in terms of the  “politics as usual” – in the words of Jay-Z. Plus I’m going to comment this Rape thing that has been hitting the airwaves. In which Gov. Mitt Romney recently endorsed.  If you recall, I’m talking about the Indiana  Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock who is running for the U.S. Senate Seat against, Democrat Joe Donnelly, and also Libertarian Candidate Andy Horning on November 6th. The comment and topic of Rape has always been a hot button, serious, EXTREMELY SENSITIVE topic in alot of years. Now let’s review what the GOP candidate said in regarding the subject and the use of the almighty.

Um, I have to say that any person who rapes a person for no apparent reason is a MORTAL SIN! Now for those who don’t usually follow the biblcial terms, read this:

25 “But if in the open country a man meets a young woman who is betrothed, and the man seizes her and lies with her, then only the man who lay with her shall die. 26 But you shall do nothing to the young woman; she has committed no offense punishable by death. For this case is like that of a man attacking and murdering his neighbor, 27 because he met her in the open country, and though the betrothed young woman cried for help there was no one to rescue her.

For those who don’t know that verse, it’s from the book of Deuteronomy Chapter 22.  Now onto another book in the bible. This might get scary for some:

For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses plundered and the women raped. Half of the city shall go out into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city. – Taken from Zechariah 14: 2

Now why I’m putting this into a blog? What is the point of these verses talking about rape or relations to rape of saying what the GOP Candidate commented? Like I said, Rape is Rape. Even the President said this recently on Jay Leno. Partially, it’s an issue in which most have talked about but still can’t understand. And that goes for the GOP Candidate, who’s have an angle with the so-called Tea Party who probably believe that it’s part of God’s intent to happen. EXCUSE ME! Since when did God intented to make females being raped a good thing? No Female, matter of fact, no person, yes I’m inclding men also, should never be raped to be God intened. No way! I don’t know what was in this man’s mind when he said that. Plus we all know about “hot mics” and “hot commnets”. That right there is dumb move! Oh, and most thought that the Libyan Email was something that the right wing maniacs picked was just a thing to get momentum. Which in my view, wasn’t. I’ll debate that later. If this is the kind of candidate, referring to Richard Mourdock is believing in terms of his viewpoints of rape of what he just said, then folks, he does NOT DESERVE to be in the limelight for a candiacy for any office. Sometimes we know, that words like that can really cost you. I remember what former Wisconsin State Senator Elizabeth Coggs said that “Vote someone that looks like you.” I thought it was voting for someone who has the “same beliefs” as the regular voter. But what it turned out was if she hadn’t said a comment like that persay, she would be still in office right now for the State instead of Nikyla Harris. So yes, you Indiana folks have a decision to make in regarding your GOP candidate if it’s vital to keep or let go based on commentary.

Now: my take on Black Republicans. Oh, I’m going to have a field day on this one. Now what I’m about to say that is my own personal point of view in terms of this blog, and my editorials in regarding the group of blacks, agreeing with Republican ideals. I will agree that everyone has a right to follow what they want to follow in a political stance. It’s in our American Democracy DNA. We know. The news about Stacey Dash really hit the fan in terms of endorsing Mitt Romney to become President. But is Stacey really getting herself on the burner on this one? I mean really, she is endorsing almost most everything that the Republicans despise of the work of the Democrats laid down. Including repealing ObamaCare. Oh  I did mention increasing that Voter Suppression, or having more troops in Iraq and continuing more wars? Stacey likes this idea? Really? Oh check this out: Remember the rapper Shyne? who was rapping for Diddy during his Bad-Boy Entertainment days? Shyne was locked up for over a decade, comes out, works on a new album since forever, but slams Obama and endorses Romney. Oh really? Basically, besides the new joint, what else Shyne has done, LATELY? What has Stacey Dash done LATELY?

Well, OK that’s they’re opinion to endorse. But here’s the thing: Mitt Romney NEVER got any support from the African-American Community, but there are some Africans-Americans would endorse him anyway. Those in that 2%. Sort of reminds me of a radio guy that Milwaukee had: James T. Harris. – Oh God! I’ll never forget 4 years ago around this time that he was in Waukesha, (the most republican county in Wisconsin) when Senator John McCain was in the state, he was commentating to him and uttered the words: “Sir, I’m begging you. I’m begging you. Take it to him!” Too Funny! It was so funny I was rocking my shoes off! And he got pawned by those who thought he was selling out or acting like a “Uncle Tom” or “Sambo”.  Don’t forget, this was 4 years ago at the time of Obama’s run for President for the first time. Matter of fact, some may add Herman Cain, a former candidate of the Republican Party (Thank God) who thought that racism wasn’t real. NEGRO PLEASE! But recently, Armstrong Williams came out on BET’s Don’t Sleep last night in regarding Immigration and the Dream Act. On the panel, he was debating Rosie Perez and Jeff Johnson on the subject. Click on the site:

Don’t Sleep! : Ep. 114 Web Extra

In addition, Rosie was on defense in terms of children, in which Armstrong was not!

Plus don’t me get started on Angela McGlowan in terms of  her viewpoints. (Fox News related) She was recently on BET’s Don’t Sleep about her being beat up. Correction Angela, it’s beaten up. Correct your words! Some have chimed on twitter claimed that she forgotten who she is, but some of the rights may be stricken away by the use of the pen. Not my words, others. Remember she was at a Tea Party rally. Plus, she had the un-most respect of interrupting the show, and host TJ Holmes.

Now, here’s a bombshell question that many of you might ask. Which Republican would Stephen respect? I’m going to answer that right now in two words: Colin Powell. Yep. That’s what I said. I would respect Colin Powell more over Herman Cain, Angela McGlowan, Artur Davis, Armstrong Williams, or any Black Republican or Black Republican Fanatic out there. Even the phony wannabes. If you just woke up this morning, once again Powell endorsed Barack Obama for the repeat of the Presidency. He says that he respects Mitt Romney in all, but with the Foreign Policy Exchange he does NOT agree with him. And he’s facing backlash from one of his friends, Sen. John McCain.

But overall, I know most of you probably are asking why this? Can  people be different? Of course. Do I have to like it? No. If they choose to follow the Republican Ideas in terms of whatever, let them. And this proves that Black folks don’t always agree with each other.  But what happens if  their ideas they support, backfires? Oh, yes. What happens if the things they believe or critique in, doesn’t come up the way they want? What next? Hate to put the spin on this but it needed to be said. Just saying.
