Black republican ad 'with a servant's heart' [AUDIO]

Yes, the Democrats launched the KKK, the way the Catholic Church approved the Spanish Inquisition and many of the Crusades.

Or: Different era, different entity.

A new radio ad (listen right) accusing the Democrats of starting the KKK and fighting against Civil Rights legislation from the 1860s to the 1960s is so disingenuous and morally bankrupt it tears at the heart of this not-happy-with-Democrats writer.

Fortunately, those with integrity are fleeing from the ranks of the NBRA in the wake of this latest campaign to, as they say, bamboozle black Americans.

From Steve Gilliard:

Rev. Eric M. Wallace, chairman of the African American Republican Council of Illinois and a candidate for lieutenant governor, writes in a resignation letter obtained by Inside the Beltway:
"If you guys decide to formulate another organization based on actually helping our people, let me know. If you choose people with a servant's heart, then I am in. I serve because of my relationship with my Savior. I am a Christian first, a father second, a minister and scholar third, and a black man fourth, and then a Republican. Heaven help me if I ever get these out of order."
