Attacking Non-UH liberalism 'White libs used buses to move poor Black voters in N.O. for Landrieu election in '96' (No payback by Mary before Katrina)
Back in 1996, a story in the New Orleans Times Picayune on Nov. 9th of that year reported that now affluent Senator Mary Landrieu, D-LA, had succeeded in getting a bunch of buses on the streets of New Orleans to get Black people to the polls to vote for her in her US Senate race.
Landrieu was losing badly to Woody Jenkins in the waning days of the Senate race, as the liberals found on election days that the inner city of New Orleans had not voted something to the tune of 186,000 people.
There was an incredible effort to pull out all the stops in the last hours of the election. President Clinton was making phone calls. Liberal politicians and entertainers, the gambling industry, pulled the whole thing together to get African-American voters to the polls.
Come the latter part of election day, the liberals hit the streets, over 1000 volunteers, they put on parades, and they played music to drive people out of their homes, and get ship them to the polls on all kinds of buses. In effect, it the same tactic of the The Pied Piper of Hamelin, except that the children were not taken until 2005.
The parades were especially a big hit in the housing projects, giving away 'red beans and rice' for a vote.
Countless buses were found to get people to the polls to elected Landrieu, but when Katrina came, no busing efforts were made by Mary to pay the Black population of New Orleans back for electing her twice to the US Senate.
The loudest noises in 1996 were at the major housing projects where blowing horns and playing loud New Orleans music flushed people out of their houses with the surge happening between 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. when large numbers of voters got off work (got their red beans and rice) and went to the polling places.
