Every once in a while a story comes up that is SO BLATANTLY hypocritical you cannot help but shake your head. That’s right — we sure are talking about the Congressional Black Caucus.
The committee that is supposed to help African-American candidates get elected spends more money on virtually EVERYTHING besides the actual cause they are meant to support. A report dug up by The Washington Free Beacon exposes the truth. The Congressional Black Caucus is spending their money on exotic resorts, the best food money can buy, Broadway tickets, late nights out, and much, much more. It is disgraceful.
The goal of the CBC, according to their website, is to raise “the number of African-Americans in the U.S. Congress” as well as to “Support non-black candidates that champion our interests and promote African American participation in the political process with an emphasis on young voters.”
When you read that description, it just leaves you in a state of shock. For us, the last line is very telling. They are looking for young voters because young voters today are easily manipulated; malleable, if you will. The CBC knows that if they have the young voters on their side, nothing can stand in their way of living the lifestyle we all dream of while we trudge through our 9-5 every week.
The financial records show a disgusting trend. First, we see the CBC spent $5,000 on one of the “world’s top 50 tropical resorts” in the Virgin Islands. Surely they were just handling congressional business there, right?
There was another $4,500 spent by the group at a top class Italian restaurant called Un Amore. Maybe they were sponsoring dinners for all the potential candidates. No? Was it just them? Oh.
It gets worse. Besides all of the other miscellaneous expenses, things get further out of control when you look at spending in New York and Washington. One report shows OVER $40,000 spent at the Conrad Hotel, according to the official government website.
We see other amounts totaling over $6000, $4000, and $3000 on MULTIPLE occasions. EVERYONE should be alarmed by this revelation. But this is still just the tip of the iceberg. Multiple fundraising events costing over $28,000, $25,000, and $22,000 were put into play. On top of that catering for ONE of those events cost over $27,000!
So, after hearing all of that, you must be wondering, how much money went to prospective candidates for Congress? The Free Beacon reports that a mere $91,000 went to actual candidates across the board. It is DISGUSTING that these people are getting away with stealing all of this money and doing whatever they want with it. What kind of nonsense is this and why are these people not in jail?
Wait a second. Obtaining a bunch of money for the SOLE purpose of getting Congress candidates into seats, only to blow it all on you and your buddies without consequences sure sounds an awful lot like a “black privilege” to us! LOCK THESE PEOPLE UP AND THROW AWAY THE KEY!
Do YOU think that they the CBC is abusing their “black privilege?” Please share the story on Facebook and tell us what you think because we want to hear YOUR voice.
