Talk about a campaign that would make even Obama proud, look at how this white Republican won in a predominantly black district.
Wilson got ignorant black people to “vote their color,” using the same tactic as America’s half-white president, and like Obama, Wilson won, and without having black people vote “early and often.”
After losing by shenanigans of the Left in the VA governor’s race, the RNC could use a lesson from Dave Wilson’s unorthodox campaign. Wilson, an old white Republican essentially got black voters to believe he was black, a la the movie The Distinguished Gentleman, where Eddie Murphy’s character gets elected using the name of a dead white incumbent.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
One of his mailers said he was “Endorsed by Ron Wilson,” which longtime Houston voters might easily interpret as a statement of support from a former state representative of the same name who’s also African-American. Fine print beneath the headline says “Ron Wilson and Dave Wilson are cousins,” a reference to one of Wilson’s relatives living in Iowa.
“He’s a nice cousin,” Wilson says, suppressing a laugh. “We played baseball in high school together. And he’s endorsed me.”
24-year incumbent Bruce Austin who lost by only 26 votes, tried to answer the mailer with his own fliers showing Wilson’s face, calling him a “right-wing hate monger” and saying he “advocated bringing back chain gangs to clean highways.” But the campaign clearly caught him off guard.
“I don’t think it’s good,” he said. “I don’t think it’s good for both democracy and the whole concept of fair play. But that was not his intent, apparently.”
Kudos to a Republican using Alinsky tactics to show Democrats that we are not all stupid.
The good news is black people will finally get GOOD representation, as Wilson will definitely EARN his stripes in this new role.
