This guy is genius imo , he proves blacks are racist and uses their racism to win then gets to troll

💯


Correction... Just some individuals. Actually, although funny, this was a bit over the top. I could never support such a person. And he has 6 years there so he better do some good now that he is there. He owes it to them.


The incumbent, the person he was running against, was a black man. How does his pretending to be black prove that people who voted for him are racists (or even black? or even saw his print material?). Do you really think that he has any intention of dutifully representing the interest of his constituents?


They thought they were voting for 1 of 2 black men. Everyone, the newscasters, Wilson, and even his opponent knew what was up with this. Did you watch the video? Not one person in that video denied him winning because he was, "black". To not see this for what it is , is choosing to being blind.

And why are you bringing up Wilson's intentions? Didn't you watch the video? Even though I don't feel he should even be there, he does state that he wants to break up the corruption held by his opponent. So, maybe he will surprise everyone.

Maybe not quite as original as some may think, however,it was clever. Usually, these type of ploys work best on the local level.

couple others I have seen employed is a candidate getting a name change to a traditionally polish name in an attempt to win in a district that was largely of polish decent. Historically the district always went with the traditionally polish names in state rep elections.

In another ploy, I had a former professor working on a mayoral campaign and recruited a second candidate with the same name as his competitor and got him on the ballot so there was no way to know which candidate was which.

I wonder if Obama would have ever been elected were it not for his "race".

If we just focused on policy instead of colour, then things like this would not occur.

This certainly brings things to the fore.

Look at the stats: 1. Women 2. White apologists (ETA: might be a little less than a fair characterization) 3. Minorities (not just blacks)

After the debacle that was Dubya and Corporate Amerika, I didn't shed a tear (until ObamaramaCare). The fact that I didn't care drove my ultra-conservative friends up the proverbial wall. I shamefully admit I still rub it in like I actually went out and voted for him.

ETA: On the topic ... the guy who took the election understands the values of today's politics.

Yet another reason to join Russell Brand in not voting again ever.


Or paint yourself black and run for POTUS.

Awesome. Even more fodder for the closet-racists of ats to justify their distaste for blacks.

What's the point of a having a nation by the people and for the people when a large majority of the people have the intellect of amoeba? If you actually pay attention to things, especially the things that are being pushed as OK and politically correct, it's hard not to be in a constant state of frustration and anger. Anyone notice how the word "decadent" is being used as if it's positive? If you don't know, it means moral decay. How about "glamorous", which means basically fake or illusory? I don't know about you, but I've got to the point where I can't be in the same room with a TV on and become progressively angry. We're losing (or lost) the ability to discern between right and wrong. BTW, even though it made me sick to my stomach, thanks for sharing the video of the guy passing around the petition to remove the Bill of Rights. I wonder if people would've been so quick to sign if it he were shorter, was obviously insecure, or had a deformity.

According to the news story it was a "shocking" win. Why is it a "shocking" win? Because he was white? Isn't that a tad bit racist in and of itself?

Welcome to my day to day life of frustration and anger. What's more, I can't do a damn thing about it. I'm convinced it's shortening my life span significantly. One of these days I'm going to blow a friggin gasket.

HAHAHA omg that video is hilarious. That's spot on though. Reminds me of those petitions to ban water.

This is funny as hell, but also embarrassing. NOBODY bothered to check into this guy's background before they cast a vote?? And these types are among the effing morons putting the dipsh**s & greedy a-holes in Washington. Nuff said. I know it's everyone's right to vote as they please, but holy frick, you guys. No wonder we're in the toilet here. Maybe mandatory voter education classes is a better idea than I thought.

I keep saying you should have to have an IQ of over 130 to vote (proof required), and there should be a quiz on the candidate in question before your vote can be cast.

For all the people saying this guy "LIED": Where? When? How?

Are some of you guys/girls that incapable of listening or reading?

He never said he was black, he never implied he was black, because he never referred to race at all!

I thought we lived in a post-racial USA? LOL

This guy just punk'd a bunch of ignorant voters, good for him!

Lessons learned the hard way are lessons truly learned.

I'm not surprised, Republicans have been lying to black people for years.


Are you serious? What does this have to do with repubs, and black people?

People that vote for a race, rather than the person, are completely ignorant.

I have never, and will never care about a persons skin color. Its ridiculous to do so... but hey, to each their own.

This goes to show how stupid voters are. It makes me sick!


That was actually just a snarky comment, so no.

But let's put a stop to this BS right now.


An electrician best known for mailing homophobic fliers to thousands of Houston voters attacking the city’s lesbian mayor narrowly won an election to the Houston Community College Board of Trustees after he misled voters into believing that he is African American. Dave Wilson defeated longtime incumbent Bruce Austin, who actually is black, in an overwhelmingly African American district.
Wilson’s campaign fliers were filled with black faces that he admits to simply pulling off of websites, along with captions such as “Please vote for our friend and neighbor Dave Wilson.” Another flier announces that he was “Endorsed by Ron Wilson,” which is the name of an African American former state representative. Only by reading the fine print will voters discover that the “Ron Wilson” who actually endorsed Dave is his cousin. The cousin lives in Iowa.


Okay, so the guy he unseated was black too? Think about that for a minute. How can we can now conclude that race was the issue? If the voters thought that both candidates were black, they weren't voting for Dave Wilson "because he was black" were they?

This whole thing is disgusting and the fact that people just jumped all over a chance to pull the reverse racism card is sickening.

source


So let's get this straight really quick:

You're implying that if people had REALIZED he was white, he wouldn't have been elected??!?!

So you're implying the voters did not read what his actual campaign messages were? or what his stated values and objectives were? And you feel that the prior scandal within the board didn't have anything to do with the incumbent losing??

So despite the scandal and voters probably wanting to vote someone new in, they WOULDN'T have voted for this guy BECAUSE he's white????

There is no diference in this or voting for dems or rep. Exactly the same #.
People are ignorant
People are easy to manipulate
People are sheep
Politicians are false and lie ALL the time
Politicians will do anything for a vote
The list goes on and on and is relevant for all parties, regardless of skin collor, sexual inclination u name it.
Russel Brand i would vote for..David Icke..the guy in South Africa (ubuntupparty chek him out guys)
Same for Europe and rest of the world exept a few countrys like Uruguay who has the "poorest president in history", check him out too)

Just another sign its time to unite.
