If you watch Fox News much you have seen Deneen Borelli often as a guest commentator on many different shows. Borelli is a contributor to shows such as "Hannity," "The O’Reilly Factor," "Fox and Friends" and "Fox Business with Lou Dobbs Tonight." Borelli is an accomplished conservative author, columnist, and television personality.
She is best known for writing the hard hitting book "Blacklash: How Obama and the Left are Driving Americans to the Government Plantation," a scathing political critique that rips into progressivism, crony capitalism and arrogant elitism under the Obama administration. She also supports FreedomWorks, a major Tea Party group. It has tapped Borelli to head up its outreach to minorities and she is making quite an impact.
Borelli found a spotlight when she was blacklisted from the NAACP convention, which these days has become a badge of honor. I quote theblacksphere.net: “The organization (NAAPC) claims it 'seeks to remove all barriers of racial discrimination through the democratic processes.' Well apparently the NAACP has erected a barrier of its own and blacklisted black conservative Deneen Borelli.” The NAACP has completely abandoned the teachings of Martin Luther King insisting that everyone be judged by the content of their character. I am sure that we will be seeing more of Borelli in the future.
Ludmya Bourdeau "Mia" Love is a Haitian-American politician who is changing the face of politics today. She has taken action by becoming the U.S. Representative of Utah’s fourth congressional district after being the Mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah from 2010 to 2014.
On Nov. 4, 2014 the Republican Party made black history when Love was the first Republican black woman elected to Congress. Love also became another "first" that night—the first Haitian-American elected to Congress. Not only is Love the first Haitian American, but also the first black female Republican in Congress, making two huge firsts in history. The morning after the election, Twitter lit up with the news of the Republicans having made black history by electing their first woman to Congress; even those with different political views put partisanship aside and took time and congratulated her. Not bad, not bad at all.
Love grew up to be strongly conservative. The congresswoman-elect is proud to tell people the story of how her immigrant parents pulled themselves up by their bootstraps. Love said, “As a member of Congress, I intend to put the decision-making back into the hands of the grass roots American people, by keeping the public involved in the political process."
Love was also a featured speaker at the 2012 Republican National Convention. After seeing Love’s star-making speech at the convention, I knew she was destined for bigger things. Borelli and Love are both great role models for the youth today and especially for young ladies searching for their independent voice; we salute you during this proud Black History Month 2015.
