Not one, not a single black conservative was even invited.

Michael Steele wasn't invited because he isn't presently hold an office, like Clinton. LOL

The march was all about and for N!@@ers, Whites need a march for Chris Lane and the 88yr old White ww2 vet murdered by the African savages. White taxpayers are sick of keeping up perennial black parasites.

I think Steel's problem had something to do with money. I forget what it was about now.

Steel would probably be considered a mainstream republican.

Ben Carson certainly won't be invited anywhere again.:-)

the repubs kicked Steele to the curb, why would they invite him for republican member? The repubs have had a bad time lately with not being able to take critism from inside the party. You should know you have a problem when you alienate your own members for speaking out, nevermind the general public.

Many Republicans were invited with little prior notice.

Why would Republicans break previous engagements for a people who have systematically vilified and lied about them?

I see George W. Bush was being very gracious despite being labelled a mass murderer by some black organizations.

Any voter group, racial or otherwise, which has a knee jerk reaction of blindly supporting one party and not even being willing to listen to the other party, will be taken for granted by the one party and ignored by the other.

The real miracle is how they got this many Negroes together in one place without their being multiple stabbings and shootings. I guess all the KFC franchises helped to pacify the dusky horde.

Not only all WHite...all white male...they have a war on women...with wages, jobs, insurance, their right to birth control and abortion...and GAYS, and anti-minorities...they have isolated themselves from the majority of Americans which is why they must gerrymander in order to win at ALL. But their attack on the popular government regulations over the insurance companies has even their OWN constituents not voting for them in 2014

Why would any self respecting Repub attempt to speak when he knows he would be shouted down and potentially assaulted? Libs cannot countenance anything that might counter their irrational fantasies.

Libs simply LOVE MLK's "I have a dream" speech, but they do not know it. They completely miss the content.

From that speech:
"But there is something that I must say to my people, who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice: In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force."

Can modern Libs reconcile MLK's words with the actions that Libs condone?

No. They are spiteful, hateful creatures - prone to violence
They excuse their violence with trite platitudes
They cannot even take constructive criticism or opposition

To treat others as equals would mean to extend full Rights and privileges, but NOT to excuse poor behavior, whether it affects others or only themselves. When select subcultures (and we are ALL members of various subcultures) demand special "Rights", or claim immunity from the laws meant for all, they demand too much.

Equal is equal, get over it!

They dont have to break previous engagements, no one asked them to do so. You'd think that as a national party, they would want atleast 1 person there; especially since they are having an image and outreach problem... They are also on break so all of them should have ample time on their hands. Probably too busy speaking with lobbyist though.

seems you are too familiar with history. Please go back and read the articles from the marches in the 60s. See how peaceful those were as well, nevermind the FBI telling doctor king he should take the easy way out and kill himself....

Do you REALLY think any GOP member was "invited" to speak? I f**king doubt it. The ONLY Black Senator was not even asked to attend,much less speak. But personally I found it funny as a crutch that 2 Southern born,WHITE Presidents were asked to say a few words. All the event turned out to be was a pep rally for people who have no appreciation of how far the country has come. Rather they biched and moaned about how far it still had to go. So I guess the real question is,are these Black pigs looking to more equal than the other pigs? Sure as he11 looks like it.

[1]__GOP not all white.

[2]__Black GOP has been "Blacklisted" by Liberal/Socialist.

[3]__Black GOP Senator was not invited to Black Democrat ceremony.

[4]__Why would any White member of Congress go to a Black __ White-bashing rally? Obama did not pull any punches in his Black/White devisive speech.

[5]__Blacks are too dense to understand all "they" hate about Whites is "Democrat"...

Democrats were slave owners.

Democrats started the Civil War to keep their Black slaves.

Democrats were the KKK.

Democrats generated White-Only drinking fountains, White-Only restrooms, White-Only schools, Blacks to the back of the bus, Segregated military units.

Democrats are still "controlling" still "manipulating" Blacks and Blacks are too dense, too programed by Democrats to see the truth.

You can start right in Obama's white house with the war on women.

While your language is harsh...you are very correct about the double standard.

Blacks kill whites...no one cares.

Whites kill blacks...major crisis.

Long "before" there were Black slaves in America, there were White slaves.

Why have we not seen 5,000,000 Irish and British descendents of White slaves "demanding" justice two-hundred years after the fact?

Too many Blacks want something for nothing.

Are Blacks too dense to "understand" thousands of "White Republicans died" in the Civil War for Black freedom.

Democrats were the slave owners, KKK, and everything else evil.

Blacks are too dense to realize Democrats are still manipulating them including their "half-white_half-black " God Obama.

Black men and women are emasculated from being conservative Republicans by the progressive hate machine. Every problem that exists is blamed on someone not progressive and when it is between progressives, the color on the sleeve rules. It takes African American men and women of courage to become moderate Republican voters let alone conservatives. Free yourselves. Free us all.

"lifestyle" Nah,hon, that'd be viagra and selling guns to felons and the mentally insane...a woman has a right to determine WHEN to get Pregnant, by whom and how many times...and taking away her birthcontrol just proves what little johnsons this nation has...

Republicans have refused the Lily Ledbetter legislation, jobs bill, even for veterans, and are cutting food stamps and housing and health care for poor women. I'd say the republicans have declared war on women..and so do most of the women on the right.

With you as a member of the party, one would have to imagine why they would be having an image/outreach/messaging problem./s
