The 21st Century Abolitionist- December 2nd, 2010

The 21st Century Abolitionist

We are in times of tremendous restructuring within the Republican Party. Black Conservatives are demanding their rightful seat at the decision making table after accomplishing historic wins this past election.  The Frederick Douglass Foundation was at the forefront of the Republican Party's success this fall with the promotion and subsequent election of a number of Black GOP candidates. Derived from these events was a momentum fostered from our energy and efforts across the country.

People of all races are outraged with the direction this country is headed.  Socialism is being choked down our throats, as immoral legislation is being pushed through the lame duck, democratic lead congress including: repeal of don't ask don't tell, the Dream Act and  the heavily funded "health initiative" that promote population control and furthering the efforts of the eugenics movement.

As previously stated, "We are not resting". Allowing Status Quo to prevail within the party at such a pivotal moment in American history would be irresponsible on all principle based true conservatives. The Frederick Douglass Foundation is keeping the momentum going as we are stepping forward to maintain the voice in Washington that speaks to the needs of the black community.

"...And if the Negro cannot stand on his own legs, let him fall also. All I ask is give him a chance to stand on his own legs! Let him alone...your interference is doing him positive injury. ... I prayed for twenty years but received no answer until I prayed with my legs. Man's greatness consists in his ability to do and the proper application of his powers to things needed to be done." - Frederick Douglass
Recent News
Hillary Clinton announced the launch of a new program that according to Clinton will now become the centerpiece of U.S. foreign policy.  This new program is known as the Global Health Initiative, and it is being incredibly well-funded. According to Clinton, 63 billion dollars will be spent by the U.S. to prevent pregnancies and to improve "family planning" services around the globe over the next six years.  In other words, the new centerpiece of U.S. foreign policy is all about eugenics and population control.

Spotlight on FDF Members and Candidates

Anne Marie Buerkle (R-NY) Un-Seats Incumbent Dan Maffei in Congressional win for the 25th District
By: Ayesha Kruetz

  Chaplain Ayesha Kruetz and Anne Marie Buerkle.
NEW YORK- The Frederick Douglass Foundation of New York is proud of Congressman-elect Ann Marie Buerkle.  She will be the first Congressional member of the Frederick Douglass Foundation.

Republican candidate, Ann Marie Buerkle (NY-25), fought an uphill battle against incumbent Democrat congressman Dan Maffei and solidified the win despite running in a heavily Democrat district.  Greatly underfunded compared to her opponent, Buerkle ran an amazing campaign, holding firm to Jesus Christ, free-market principles and respect for the life of the unborn.

Ann Marie Buerkle, a pro-life woman and staunch conservative, didn't take any voter for granted.  She has proven again that when pro-life and pro-family principles are articulated properly by candidates that the people make the right choice.  By being involved, attentive and responsive, Congressman-elect Ann Marie Buerkle proved she is the right kind of person to get the change the country really needs- not the socialist snake oil the President is constantly peddling.  She is the kind of Republican we are proud to help get elected."

On behalf of the Frederick Douglass Foundation, we congratulate Ann Marie Buerkle for her tremendous victory and look forward to working with her in the future.
