Mel Watt has “no use” for whites in the democratic process.
The Daily Caller reports that Obama has nominated Congressman Mel Watt D-NC) will be the nominee to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), which regulates the government-sponsored mortgage companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
67-year-old Watt, a former chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, once declared that white Americans should be denied suffrage.
On Oct. 14, 2005, during a Washington hearing held by the National Commission on the Voting Rights Act, Watt said:
“There would be a substantial majority of white voters who would say that under no circumstances would they vote for an African American candidate. [The Voting Rights Act should be expanded to] adjust districts to take [racially motivated voting] into account. [Those white voters] “need to be factored out of the equation [because] I’ve got no use for them in the democratic process.”
According to a contemporaneous report of the hearing published by the Cybercast News Service, Watt said that black voters — unlike whites — don’t have “an absolute commitment” to voting for a candidate based on race because “Black people have not had the luxury of being able to say, ‘Under no circumstances will I vote for a white candidate.'”
Belying Watt’s racist assertions, in the 2008 presidential election, an overwhelming 95% of blacks and 43% of whites voted for Obama — the largest share for any Democrat in a two-man race since 1976. Those white Obama voters must be fake white people!
