Aneesh Chopra’s Disingenuous and Disgusting Use of the Race Card

Dem LG candidate Aneesh Chopra has already sunk to a new low in Virginia statewide politics with his disingenuous and disgusting use of the race card in a blatantly false and unwarranted attack against Stafford BOCS Chairman Susan Stimpson.

Republican candidate for Lt. Governor Susan Stimpson was asked how she would inspire African-American voters. Her response was: “Well that wouldn’t be a set constituency that I would try to inspire.”

Share this image if you agree we need leaders who will inspire all Virginians, no matter who they are or where they live. That’s the campaign I am running and that’s how I will lead as Lt. Governor.480435_10151428030019230_1638011443_n[1]

Mr. Chopra — you are a knave and a liar.  You obviously have been hanging out with your Chicago political friends too long.

Here are Mrs. Stimpson’s complete remarks from her interview on the John Fredericks radio show:

JF: Republicans in VA are getting annihilated in key urban centers of the state.. Hampton Newport news Richmond, Portsmouth, what would your message be to the African American community if you went to.. let’s say.. your campaigning in urban areas.. how would you be able to inspire Blacks to vote for Susan Stimpson?

SS: That wouldn’t be a set constituency I would try to inspire. I think that we are all Americans and we all have the same concerns. We want to provide for our families. We want to have jobs. We want to be able to have that American exceptionalism that allows us to have individual liberties to do what we think is best for ourselves and our families. And I think government should be limited and government should get out of the way of families And that means taking money out of their pocket and thinking that the government can make a better decision for us.. and that is not a good direction for our country.

SS: And I think it is a battle right now for individual liberties and I would appeal to women, I would appeal to minorities, I would appeal to Republicans and Democrats we need to protect our liberties and to push back on all of this government overreach.

JF: I want to get back to a question I asked and want to follow up on your answer. We talked about Republicans to go in to the Black communities of VA and reach that particular segment of Virginians.. and when I asked that did you basically say that a demographic segment you can’t win and you are going to write them off or did I misinterpret your answer?

SS: I think that you completely misinterpreted that answer. I think that is a part of the problem of politics today. What in the world are we doing segregating all of these different classes and what your race is and what your sexuality is. I think that we are all Americans here and I think we share common values as Americans not according to what our skin color is so I reject that we are going to be focusing on things like that. And I think it was Jay-Z that made the comment that “government is doing too much” . So I think that community also believes government may be doing too much.

Mr. Chopra and other Democrats like him cannot fathom treating people as individuals rather than faceless members of some group.  Let’s look at Stimpson’s key statements again:

I think that we are all Americans and we all have the same concerns.

. . .

What in the world are we doing segregating all of these different classes and what your race is and what your sexuality is. I think that we are all Americans here and I think we share common values as Americans not according to what our skin color is so I reject that we are going to be focusing on things like that.

If you disagree with those statements, Mr. Chopra, then please feel free to run on that as your platform.  Otherwise, take your misogynist ramblings someplace else.

  1. Is this the same Aneesh Chopra who has a phony Facebook picture of a long voting line which he says signifies voter suppression? The picture was taken in New Orleans.

  2. Ms. Stimpson sounds like Mitt Romney……and her answer reflects a total lack of understanding of the great diversity we have in our midst…………. NO NO NO NO NO NO……….we do NOT ALL HAVE THE SAME CONCERNS Ms. Stimpson!!. Even in your response you said you would appeal to women!!! Dont you even remember yesterday Ms. Stimpson when minorities asked the Spotsylvania BOCS to put up a mural for Black History in Central Virginia? Dont you know or see Corey Stewart going around the state, pointing at Blacks and Latinos in the crowds and telling them he is going after their votes….hohohohohoho he looks like a version of Uncle Tom…………….you guys just dont get it!!!!! fcs, you all keep going like this and we wont even have to campaign in the fall…….

    • There’s nothing wrong with the statement. She’s just saying that she’s not going to treat black people any differently than any other kind of people, which is a very defensible position. If the other side wants to press the issue I’m pretty sure we can hold this ground.

  3. I love this quote by Susan, “What in the world are we doing segregating all of these different classes and what your race is and what your sexuality is. I think that we are all Americans here and I think we share common values as Americans not according to what our skin color is so I reject that we are going to be focusing on things like that.”

    Isn’t that exactly what America is all about?! Isn’t that what Dr. Kind taught us? He said that we shouldn’t be looking at race but at the content of our character! We’re all Americans!

    This interviewer sounds like a idiot. I hear he’s supporting the establishment’s republican, Pete Snyder.

  4. Sounds like you all are paddling about in a sinking ship and none of you know how to swim!!!!blub…blub…..blub……….

  5. Ken,

    I think there is a deep misogynist vein within many Democratic men just crying to come out. A Chopra – Stimpson race will no doubt show Virginia just how dumb women can be….from a Democratic point of view.

  6. Alexis, Thank you for your comment…….BUT, you folks just dont get it….and all the explaining by me and others wont get thru to you………No one is suggesting that Stimpson treat Black people differently………….simply, all races and groups have unique needs……….and if Stimpson doesnt understand this…………well, she’ll lose!!

  7. Ken,

    “all races and groups have unique needs…” and those needs include : pandering to, having their worst prejudices inflamed, having real and percieved past injustices done to them by another race and group a constant source of division and cause for retribution ?

    Those needs , Ken?

    Divide, Conquer and Rule -> a standard Democrat campaign and mantra for A Chopra?

    Don’t you get tired panhandling hate and division , Ken?

  8. I have no idea where you are coming from….i do not panhndle anything and especially hate!!—-that is a right wing term in my view btw……in our pluralistic society, we have many diverse needs………..a successful leader will work with these needs………….as you may know, education is a huge need for uneducated people…….and as you may know, EVERYonE wins in an educated society………….when large hi-tech companies move into an area, there is a need to develop peoples’ educational systems to meet their needs……..everyone wins……

    • If you’re saying that “all races and groups have unique needs” you are certainly playing to divide and conquer.

      The truth is that we are all human beings and all equals under the law and race has absolutely nothing to do with it.

      Breaking human beings up into little identity groups is what Democrats do to enflame and control. Republicans need to reject that sort of provincial thinking and get back to “all men are created equal”.

      Playing into the Democrats’ identity game has resulted in us perpetually getting as low as 2-3% of the black vote. There is no success to be found for the GOP to further reinforce and perpetuate that situation.

      When it comes to the law there should be no black and no white. There is only human being.

  9. Funny…I was all in for Lingamfelter….until I spoke with Ms. Stimpson. The woman connects well in face-to–face and there is no doubt that she will steer the ship from a predictable position that comes from a compass of belief in all of us. Pete Snyder, OTOH, is one of those miserable “consultants” who’s much more concerned with his own ass…even as Romney was losing.

  10. I wrote the negative comments on Stimpson quoted above. i don’t think much of Stimpson as a candidate….for the reasons quoted but calling her a racist because she is trying to articulate that all men are created equal and should be judged on the content of their character and not the color of their skin is sick and wrong. Stimpson may not be the best candidate (IMHO) but she is not a racist.

  11. The roanoke tea party posts that is…. I have plenty of issues with Stimpson as a candidate…and I am a delegate for Jackson (so I am admittedly biased. But the Democrats are just using the standard race card attacks. Get ready for an UGLY campaign this fall.

  12. Monk……Shame on you…………You changed your mind because she onnects face-to-face………….sounds a bit sexist to me…………..i too fall easily for a pretty face…….i love Tine Fey, i mean Sarah Baby!!! So you fell on your sword for Scott…………go to your room Monk………so far, I’m voting for Scott too………….he will be the first Republican i ever voted for……….

  13. Geez……..no wonder you guys cant win any elections and are squarely in outer space policy-wise……….
