In a new video released today by Project Veritas Action, a top Democratic donor is caught on camera horribly maligning Republican blacks at a fundraiser for North Carolina U.S. Senate candidate Deborah Ross. In the video, Benjamin Barber, a prominent Ross and Clinton donor, compares blacks who vote Republican to Nazis at the fundraiser for Ross on the Upper West Side of New York City on September 19, 2016.
“Have you heard of the Sonderkommandos? Jewish guards who helped murder Jews in the camps. So there were even Jews that were helping the Nazis murder Jews! So blacks who are helping the other side are seriously fucked in the head,” Barber said. “They’re only helping the enemy who will destroy them. Maybe they think ‘if I help them we’ll get along okay; somehow I’ll save my race by working with the murderers.’”
The irony here is rich considering the sordid history of George Soros, another prominent big Democrat donor who literally was a Jewish Nazi collaborator as a teenager during World War II in his native Budapest, Hungary.
Project Veritas Action shared the video with some African American Republicans in North Carolina. Their shock and anguish over the bigoted remarks was poignant.
“Wow,” said Robert Foster sadly after a long pause. “So that’s what they think of us?” The nearly speechless Foster said Barber’s views were “wrong” and “an eye-opener.”
“I think that Deborah Ross has shown her true colors,” said Bishop Wooden, another black Republican in North Carolina. “If this is not a, if that…what you just showed me is not racism and condescending and basically calling blacks stupid and ignorant and saying that we are voting against our own self-interest if we support any republican. I am appalled. I am in incensed. Deborah Ross should be called to task for something like that.”
Pamela Wooden said, “I’m very disappointed in her. I consider it an insult — to see those accusations and hear that type of discussion, it’s insulting to me as an African American.”
Another black Republican, John Amanchukwu, said Barber’s money is “not only “dark money, it’s racist and evil money filled with venom. There’s obviously an agenda there. You can look in his eyes in the video and see there’s a rage there. And there’s a deep sea of resentment towards African Americans.”
Amanchukwu was floored by what he saw on the tape. “I cannot believe that such a thing was said about minorities,” he concluded.
