Bishop E.W. Jackson says that black Christians should not remain in a Democrat Party that is increasingly hostile to Christianity. He has produced a new video which urges black voters to abandon the Democrat Party.
Part of what he says is, “Four years ago I released a video called EXODUS NOW, calling black Christians to come out of the Democrat Party. When I did that video there was no gay marriage. Now we have it, and the Democrat Party is mainly responsible. I am back to say once again, come out!”
In the video, Jackson urges black voters to oppose Democrats on marriage and abortion. “Why has the Democrat Party embraced gay marriage when black voters believe in the biblical definition of marriage? Why does the Democrat Party avidly support Planned Parenthood when they know it’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a racist eugenicist who wanted to stop the growth of the black population?”
But the Bishop also dismisses purported claims that Democrats have helped minorities and the poor. “If the Democrat Party has done so much for the black community, why is poverty increasing? Why are there no jobs? Why is the unemployment rate among black citizens twice the national average? Why is there a 50% unemployment rate among black youth?”
He answers, “They don’t care about black people. They care about those who will bow to them.” Jackson says that Democrats have offered racial demagoguery, and nothing else. He says they manipulate black voters with fear of what they will lose if they don’t vote Democrat. According to the Bishop, the government policies of Democrats have hurt rather than helped.
Says Mr. Jackson, “The two parent black family has been all but destroyed. Too many young black people are on drugs, in gangs, prison or the morgue. In fact, government programs supported by the Democrat Party always make poverty worse.”
The video ends with an admonition about Election Day. “When you get to the polls this year, they will hand you a ballot expecting you to vote a straight Democrat ticket. It’s time to say, ‘No thank you.’ It is time to stop blindly following the Democrat Party and start faithfully following God.”
