“Bo Snerdley,” the longtime producer and on-air sidekick on “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” founded a new federal super PAC earlier this year with a mission to “make Black Americans Republican again.”
The new political action committee comes on the scene as two polls last week show that support for President Donald Trump among likely black voters, traditionally a monolithic Democratic voting bloc, has risen above the one-third mark. Rasmussen Reports pegged black support for Trump at 34 percent, while Emerson Polling reported it as 34.5 percent.
Democrats are reportedly anxious about Republicans potentially making inroads into their voting base and are tracking online movements that attempt to steer black voters away from the Democratic Party. Among those movements are Blexit, Foundational Black Americans, and American Descendants of Slavery.
Snerdley, a black man whose real name is James Golden, told The Washington Times that the Republican Partys historical ties to black Americans are “inarguable,” but have been “purposefully ignored by academia and the mainstream media” for the past half-century.
“The result is that entire generations of Americans have been subjected to a false narrative about who Republicans are, their role in the civil rights movement, and their interest in seeing all Americans, including blacks, achieving the American Dream,” Golden said.
The new organization, New Journey PAC, says in a statement online that it aspires to promote conservative values using social media and to “debunk the phony liberal narrative that Republicans, conservatives, libertarians, evangelicals, and even conservative Democrats are racist.”
“Our mission is to establish a 24/7-365 messaging and education strategy that will not go dark between election cycles,” the PAC states.
“The concept was not to build a destination solely for black conservatives or to solely promote black conservatism, but to be a destination for all conservatives. … We are fed up with the racial narratives that the left uses to paint conservatives as bigots and racists, simply because we have a different view of public policy and politics,” the group states.
Among the groups projects is MAGA.BLACK, which it describes as a new online destination for activists.
Writing as Snerdley, Golden maintains an active Twitter account, with 150,000 tweets since he joined in January 2012.
Golden shared some unique, thoughtful perspectives about America in an interview with Ginni Thomas of The Daily Caller in late 2017.
“I dont celebrate the Fourth of July. Thats white folks Independence Day, okay. It didnt have nothin to do with no black people on the Fourth of July. Thats yall Independence Day, yall were freed. I wasnt. Now Im not mad at you because you celebrate. … Im glad for you because those founders led the way to the rest of the country being free because this is the only country in history that set in motion during the Founding the self-correcting mechanisms for what they could not accomplish at that time politically, and that was an amazing thing.”
