    Default CPAC Participant Defends Slavery At Minority Outreach Panel: It Gave ‘Food And Shelte

    CPAC Participant Defends Slavery At Minority Outreach Panel: It Gave ‘Food And Shelter’ To Blacks

    http://thinkprogress.org/justice/201...rity-outreach/

    NATIONAL HARBOR, Maryland — A panel at the Conservative Political Action Committee on Republican minority outreach exploded into controversy on Friday afternoon, after an audience member defended slavery as good for African-Americans.
    The exchange occurred after an audience member from North Carolina, 30-year-old Scott Terry, asked whether Republicans could endorse races remaining separate but equal. After the presenter, K. Carl Smith of Frederick Douglass Republicans, answered by referencing a letter by Frederick Douglass forgiving his former master, the audience member said “For what? For feeding him and housing him?” Several people in the audience cheered and applauded Terry’s outburst.
    After the exchange, Terry muttered under his breath, “why can’t we just have segregation?” noting the Constitution’s protections for freedom of association. Watch it:

    ThinkProgress spoke with Terry, who sported a Rick Santorum sticker and attended CPAC with a friend who wore a Confederate Flag-emblazoned t-shirt, about his views after the panel. Terry maintained that white people have been “systematically disenfranchised” by federal legislation.
    When asked by ThinkProgress if he’d accept a society where African-Americans were permanently subservient to whites, he said “I’d be fine with that.” He also claimed that African-Americans “should be allowed to vote in Africa,” and that “all the Tea Parties” were concerned with the same racial problems that he was.
    At one point, a woman challenged him on the Republican Party’s roots, to which Terry responded, “I didn’t know the legacy of the Republican Party included women correcting men in public.”
    He claimed to be a direct descendent of Confederate President Jefferson Davis.
    The panel continued to be racked in controversy, as an African-American audience member repeatedly challenged the racism on display at this event. CPAC is the marquee conservative conference of the year, with speakers ranging from former Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney to Senator Marco Rubio.

    Update:

    K. Carl Smith, the panelist from Fredrick Douglass Republicans, released a statement following the media storm related to the racist outburst in his panel. Astonishingly, he reserves the brunt of his criticism for the female reporter who raised objections to the comments being made in the room:

    I was invited by the Tea Party Patriots to conduct a breakout session entitled: “Trump The Race Card” and share the Frederick Douglass Republican Message. In the middle of my delivery, while discussing the 1848 “Women’s Rights Convention,” I was rudely interrupted by a woman working for the Voice of Russia. She abruptly asked me: “How many black women were there?” This question was intentionally disruptive and coercive with no way of creating a positive dialogue.

    In addition, a young man who wasn’t a Tea Party Patriot, made some racially insensitive comments, he said: “Blacks should be happy that the slave master gave them shelter, clothing, and food.” At the conclusion of the breakout session, I further explained to him the Frederick Douglass Republican Message which he embraced, bought a book, and we left as friends.

    I sometimes hope that certain people at these political events are plants from opposing political party's, because no one can be that stupid.

    but all this story it means is that there is a racist idiot who backs the right. No shocker, there's millions of them. And there's millions on the left as well.

    MEMBER OF ALL-WHITE STUDENT UNION MAKES STUNNINGLY OUTRAGEOUS COMMENT ABOUT SLAVERY DURING CPAC SESSION — AND WE TALKED TO HIM

    A session at the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) focused on the GOP reaching out to minorities descended into chaos Friday afternoon after a male audience member asked what Frederick Douglass’s former slave master had to be sorry for: “For giving him food and shelter?”

    As you will see in this story, the individuals involved in this incident may have gone to this year’s CPAC with the intention of sparking controversy. The group they are associated with certainly has a history of making offensive comments about race and openly detests the GOP “establishment” and the annual conservative conference.

    “It seems to be that you’re reaching out to voters, in the method and program that you’re offering us, at the expense of young white Southern males like myself — my demographic,” 30-year-old Scott Terry of North Carolina said during a question and answer session during a discussion called, “Trump The Race Card: Are You Sick And Tired Of Being Called A Racist When You Know You’re Not One?”

    He went on to say that as a student of literature, he’s come “to love my people and my culture.”

    “I feel like my people, my demographic, are being systematically disenfranchised,” he added.

    “My problem is: Why can’t we be more like Booker T. Washington Republicans, and his famous statement: Let’s be unified like the hand but separate like the fingers,” he said.

    Presenter K. Carl Smith, of Frederick Douglass Republicans, started to answer by mentioning a letter that Douglass had sent to his former slave master, forgiving him for all the wrongs he had done to him.

    Terry then followed up with a reply that dwarfed his previous statements in terms of outrageousness: “For giving him food and shelter?”

    The crowd erupted and the people in the room looked absolutely shocked. The far-left website ThinkProgress.org reports that “several people in the audience cheered and applauded Terry’s outburst,” however, the video certainly does not reflect that. Other than disapproving gasps and disbelief, just one person can be heard clapping following the statement and it certainly could’ve been Terry’s colleague.



    Terry was accompanied by Matthew Heimbach, founder of the White Student Union at Towson University. TheBlaze spoke to Heimbach Friday to verify the statements were in accurate and in context. Terry is also a member of the White Students Union at Towson.

    The White Student Union is openly racist and even harbors some seemingly anti-Semitic views. You can read through their blog here. Additionally, here’s an excerpt from a blog post on the blog announcing the student union will be represented at CPAC:

    The Republican Establishment will be trotting out only the best and brightest to tell the white socially conservative working class base why they need to support homosexual marriage, corporatism, blank checks for Israel, and amnesty for criminal border jumpers. None of us can be surprised that the GOP Establishment has once again decided to declare that the destruction of our people, our nation, and our industrial livelihoods somehow are what the Founding Fathers wanted.

    It seems clear that both Heimbach and Terry attended CPAC with the intention of causing a stir and offending people as they openly admit that they dislike the GOP establishment and the conservative conference.

    Heimbach told TheBlaze that Terry was not attempting to spread ideas of “racism” but of “race realism.”

    “He isn’t excusing the abuses of slavery,” Heimbach said.

    However, Heimbach also complained about the disenfranchisement of the white race, saying “freedom of association” is only racist when whites try to practice the concept. He also argued that the left’s history of slavery is “propaganda” and doesn’t match up with what really happened.

    Shockingly, Heimbach refused to say whether he disagreed with the idea of “forced segregation,” telling TheBlaze that the states should be able to decide what’s best for their affairs.

    There are a number of other unverified claims made on ThinkProgress.org, including that Terry muttered under his breath, “why can’t we just have segregation.” The site also claims they interviewed Terry and he told them he would be fine if blacks were permanently subservient to whites.

    Terry, the man who initiated this firestorm, told TheBlaze in a phone interview Friday that he never said he would be “fine” if blacks were subservient to whites permanently, calling ThinkProgress’ quote “completely false.”

    “That is being completely taken out of context,” he added.

    All Americans should have the “freedom of association,” Terry explained. However, he also said he disagrees with “forced segregation,” unlike Heimbach who wants the states to decide on the issue. He also said he doesn’t support slavery and recognizes that blacks suffered a lot of injustice and abuse during the slavery-era.

    Here’s Heimbach appearing on Russia Today discussing the “Jewish question”:

    Jameson Cunningham, a spokesman for the Tea Party Patriots, provided a statement from K. Carl Smith regarding the incident to Talking Points Memo:

    I was invited by the Tea Party Patriots to conduct a breakout session entitled: “Trump The Race Card” and share the Frederick Douglass Republican Message. In the middle of my delivery, while discussing the 1848 “Women’s Rights Convention,” I was rudely interrupted by a woman working for the Voice of Russia.

    it's a better story if there's lots of people applauding (doesn't matter that there wasn't). I so hate this biased reporting. The guy is a stupid fuck, call him that. No need to make it worse than it is.

    i just can't believe that people read that shit and consider it "news". It's no more news than we writing a blog and announcing i have a 12 inch dick. And people on both ends of the political spectrum do it all the time. They read this shit and take it as the gospel truth, it's no wonder we keep getting dumber as a society.

    That's exactly what I thought when I watched it. There were numerous gasps, and ONE person heard clapping about 10 seconds after he said it, which could have been a reaction to someone's response to him as you can hear a murmor of dissatisfaction go across the room.
