Star Parker Shows How to See What You Want to See

This week's seeing-what-you-want-to-see award goes to Star Parker this gem:

"In this same Pew survey, 25 percent of all Democrats called themselves conservatives. But among these same Democrats, 35 percent of blacks call themselves conservative compared to 21 percent of whites.

Why? Blacks are social conservatives. Blacks understand the havoc that moral relativism has caused in their communities. And, this is also the case with Latinos."

Huh? If 35% of black Democrats are conservatives, then 65% of black Democrats are NOT conservatives. This little bit of logic escaped Parker, who is grasping for any straw available on which to claim that blacks agree with her, even in the face of the fact that nearly 2 in 3 don't.
