There are plenty of horrible mailers that go out each and every day during the last few weeks of a major national election.
Most of them don’t necessarily warrant much attention, but one that was received by a popular Twitter personality is eliciting quite an uproar — and for very good reason.
A video about the mailer was posted by @TheRightMelissa on Monday. The user, an African-American conservative, was concerned about the imagery being used on the front of the flyer — and the heinous images pictured on the back.
She said she would “make a quick video to share with you some of the nonsense that the Democratic Party is mailing to black people,” she began.
The mailer she holds up shows a black man and woman with the White House in the background, together with the phrase, “Why should we bother to vote?”
“This is what I just got in the mail,” she said. “It’s got a couple of black people on there, so you know it’s being directed at black people.
“And then on the back, it says vote for us because — wait for it –“
Despicable! The Democrats are mailing out post cards to black people telling them to vote because white supremacists are gonna get them. No message on Jobs, poverty, crime & other issues that plague the black community. That’s how dumb they think black people are. Time to #BLEXIT pic.twitter.com/yMaAKyLZDM

And then she turned it over to reveal a picture of the Charlottesville, Virginia, white supremacist tiki torch rioters from the summer of 2017.
“The white boogeyman’s going to come get you,” she says, sarcastically.
She then begins reading off of the back of the mailer.
“So it says, ‘We have a responsibility to reject racism and discrimination,'” she continued. “So that’s their message.”
“So forget the fact that President Trump has brought black unemployment to the lowest it’s been in history,” she continued. “And that black businesses are up over 400 percent.”
“So millions of people are back to work, millions of black people are no longer on welfare, dependent on the government, and are starting to share in the American dream.”
“But no, no, no,” she said. “Vote for us, because there’s a white boogeyman coming to get you.”
“And if you do vote for the Democrats, what happens?” she asked. “Absolutely nothing. There’s no message on jobs. There’s no message on crime. There’s no message on poverty that is ravaging the black community. No message on how to get people out of poverty, how to get people working, no message on how to get people out of the prison system.”
“It’s just the white supremacists are coming to get you.”
We cannot confirm whether the mailer is real — there’s no particular race or location cited — but all of @TheRightMelissa’s points are very, very real.
Liberals are able to conjure up dangerous racism out of something as harmless as a glass of milk, while ignoring some very grave problems black Americans face — problems that President Donald Trump is actually trying to do something about.
This is what the Democrats don’t want to talk about, and don’t want you to talk about. If you ever wonder why #Blexit is more than just a hashtag, this video is all the proof you’ll need.
