What Does 'Racial Socialism' Sound Like to You?
American Thinker ^ | February 19, 2010 | James Lewis

Posted on 02/19/2010 10:34:22 PM PST by neverdem

The United States today has slipped toward race-based socialism: That's the true name for an overwhelming bias for one race above others, in employment, promotion, and educational opportunities. Our media are constantly stirring the witch's brew of racial grievances, constantly making black people feel aggrieved and white people feel accused. Our schools drive that lesson home with young and innocent kids in a totally ruthless way. Repeat that for twelve years of schooling and TV, and you have a brainwashed kid.

That is what European socialists have done with class envy for the last hundred years: whip up the poor against the middle and the rich. It's in their standard bag of tricks. The American Left has just added racial grievances to class anger and resentment, always feeding more and more power to the racial socialists to buy peace for the very grievances they have whipped up in the first place. The NAACP today practices racial socialism. So does Obama. "Racial Ssocialism" drives the Left's current assault on American values. That's why Jeremiah Wright is such a significant part of Obama's life. Wright specialized in whipping up racial anger for political purposes. Obama's career was powered by it.

Only 12.3 percent of Americans are black, and they cannot command a majority vote. It's therefore necessary to add gender socialism, because half the population are women. If enough women can be made to feel rage against normative America, along with blacks, Hispanics, and the poor, you've got majority control of the country. You can add the wackier Greens, the ones who fall for the global warming scam, the anti-nuclear scam, and all the other anti-scientific Luddites who vote Left. The Democrats control our major cities with a coalition of those whipped-up grievance groups. 

We are no longer a society run by talent, work, and opportunity. Like ancient Egypt and Sumer, we are a society where the ruling class exploits its productive workers by taxing their labor, talent, and ability to recognize and use new opportunities.

Barack H. Obama is the logical outcome of racial socialism. You can see it in his words and actions, and his very physical stance, all signaling his sense of superiority, the flip-side of feelings of inferiority he is reacting against. Obama's core support came from the Leftist alliance of grievance groups in spite of his total lack of relevant experience. Obama is objectively the least qualified person to be elected to the presidency. But the media could not say that, because it would have been non-P.C. to tell the truth.

Obama's election was a kind of guilt propitiation by the American people for the history of slavery. But that is bizarre. Living people are not responsible for what others did two hundred years ago. That is a racist idea -- it makes sense only if whites have Evil Genes -- just like traditional anti-Semitism and hatred for blacks as a race.

We are seeing the consequences right in front of our eyes today, as this administration demonstrates its incompetence and intellectual confusion about the most obvious problems we face -- the Islamist terror threat, for starters. 

The most famous version of racial socialism is you-know-who. The Nazis rose to power by whipping up racial resentment against the Jews, the Gypsies, and other "inferior" peoples: race-based national socialism. For the Nazis, the "oppressed" were the German people, das Volk, as a race. Racial socialism is routine in post-colonial regimes, like in the case of Robert Mugabe, who clings to power by scapegoating white Zimbabweans, people who also happen to run the farms that provide food for that country. Like Stalin and Kim Jong Il, Mugabe is exploiting racial divisions at the cost of starvation and poverty for his people.

That is also why Obama's Dreams from My Father is an important policy statement, whether Bill Ayers wrote it or not. Obama is a post-colonial socialist, as was his father -- a Kenyan who wanted revenge against white Britons who ran colonial Kenya. That is why as president, Obama bizarrely tries to diss the Brits -- both the Queen and socialist Prime Minister Gordon Brown -- while bowing low to autocrats like the king of Saudi Arabia. There is something very regressive about that. It is looking to the past, not the present or the future.

Post-colonial socialism has been a universal failure wherever it has been tried. Robert Mugabe is one in a long series of failures. In India, the big post-colonial socialist was Jawaharlal Nehru, and his Congress Party has now switched its economic policies to encourage free markets, having learned something from decades of economic failure. In China, a similar evolution has happened. In Africa the most successful regimes have rejected post-colonial revenge socialism.

But don't we owe black Americans something for the sins of slavery? Just like we owe women for the sins of sexism, and gays for the sins of heterosexuality?

The answer is no. Remedies for past injustices cannot be used to overthrow a society. Germany's forced reparations after World War I destroyed the economy and the middle class, thereby undermining France and the rest of Europe as well. The attempted "remedy" for past sins also created a nationalistic revenge movement, the Nazis, who committed aggression even bloodier than World War I. Revenge movements do not make for peace.

But that is precisely what Racial Socialism is all about. But a society based on racial compensation turns into a tyranny, just as a society based on racial superiority does. Real democracy allows individuals to overcome their circumstances. But you can't overcome your race, your gender, or, in some cases, your sexual preferences. America is therefore being driven relentlessly toward a European ruling class model based on inheritance and not talent, hard work, and opportunity.

Race-based socialism is not progressive, but radically regressive, going back to the clan-based ruling classes of the first city-states in human history, as in Sumer, Egypt, and the Indus Valley six thousand years ago. The Indian caste system arose as a racial layering of Indian society by different invading tribal groups. The Left is always pointing the finger at mainstream America for the sin of racism. But racial divide and conquer is precisely the deliberate strategy of the Left.

In Britain, Labour politicians have finally confessed that they has deliberately imported hundreds of thousands of Pakistani Muslims to serve as cheap wedge-voters against British whites, while constantly accusing normal, decent people of racism. Throughout Western societies, the Left has conducted a mean and cynical assault on the mainstream of society, constantly undermining normal people while laying claim to a higher morality.

When Saul Alinsky dedicated his Rules for Radicals to Lucifer, he wasn't kidding.

All of the recent world events that seem unreal or at least hard to believe are occurring because the tide in America is turning aginst Obama and he knows it.

What this American Thinker author states is “right on the money”. African American preacher, Rev. James David Manning, Ph.D., is ALSO saying the same thing as is in this article.

till, the REAL problem is even larger than mere racial socialism. There is a theory that is building steam of very recently whi is as follows: for power and domination purposes, many of the world’s Black men are in league with radical Muslim extremists to bring down white society, most specifically white males.

Before you dismiss this as a racial rant please read the rest of my comment.

Much of what follows revolves around the fact that Malcom X took the manifesto of the Black Panther Party (that became the Black Liberation Army) and the plight of the repressed African American male in need of vast reparations abroad. Malcolm X accomplished this by completing THREE extensive (multiple months long) tours of the more powerful African nations during which he met with the nations’ PRESIDENTS and other power elites.

Malcom X met with Kenyan President Jomo Kenyatta on a trip he took to AFRICA in 1964 on which he visited Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. These three AFRICAN countries happen to be nations in which the AFRICAN OBAMA/ODINGA Luo tribe has its greatest representation

Malcom X’s visit to Kenya in 1964 occurred when Obama’s Uncle (on his mother’s side) Jaramogi Ajuma Oginga Odinga was Vice President of Kenya (1964-1966) and Obama’s father Barack Hussein Obama Sr. was a top economist for Kenya’s Finance Ministry (1965-1966).

The President of Kenya at the time was Jomo Kenyatta who today is attributed with running the most corrupt administration in Kenyan history. Kenyatta and Odinga took orders from and their administration was directly financed by the Soviet Communist government. Odinga and Obama Sr. were Cummunist Kenyan government officials when Malcolm X shared his message wth the leaders of Africa.

The story is better fleshed out in the posting cited below:

“Obama, the Black Panther Party (BPP), Black Liberation Army (BLA), Weather Underground (WU), global Muslim Brotherhood (MB) network, Al Qaeda, and Kenyan and American Politics are All Interconnected”,_the_black_panther_party_bpp,_black_liberation_army_bla,_weather_underground_wu,_global_muslim_brotherhood_mb_network,_al_qaeda,_and_kenyan_and_american_politics_are_all_interconnected.thtml

Detail on Malcolm X’s Travels to Africa:

Malcolm X visited Africa on three separate occasions, once in 1959 and twice in 1964. During his visits, he met officials, gave interviews to newspapers, and spoke on television and radio in Egypt, Ethiopia, Tanganyika (now Tanzania), Nigeria, Ghana, Guinea, Sudan, Senegal, Liberia, Algeria, and Morocco. Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt, and Ahmed Ben Bella of Algeria invited Malcolm X to serve in their governments.

In 1959, Malcolm X traveled to Egypt (then known as the United Arab Republic), Sudan, Nigeria, and Ghana to arrange a tour for Elijah Muhammad.The first of the two trips Malcolm X made to Africa in 1964 lasted from April 13 until May 21, before and after his Hajj. On May 8, following his speech at the University of Ibadan, Malcolm X was made an honorary member of the Nigerian Muslim Students’ Association. During this reception the students bestowed upon him the name “Omowale”, which means “the son who has come home” in the Yoruba language.Malcolm X wrote in his autobiography that he “had never received a more treasured honor.”

On July 9, 1964, Malcolm X returned to Africa. On July 17, he was welcomed to the second meeting of the Organization of African Unity in Cairo, Egypt (OAU Summit 17–21 July 1964) as a representative of the Organization of Afro-American Unity. By the time he returned to the United States on November 24, 1964, Malcolm had met with every prominent African leader and established an international connection between Africans on the continent and those in the diaspora.

In the 45 years that have passed since Malcom X’s assasination (Feb. 21, 1965), the Black Panther Party, the Black Liberation Army, the nation of Islam, and the Black Muslim Brotherhood have continued to spread Malcolm X’s message abroad.

James Lewis is spot on. Obama is all about revenge and his policies are revenge-based. Revenge for every slight he’s seen through his Marxist eyes. Obama and his democrats hold our Constitution in contempt.

Now he’s the Avenger-in-Chief, purposely wrecking our free market economy; taking over our banks, the auto industry and still trying to takeover our heathcare and its all encompassing industry.

He’s already spent us into oblivion and run-up deficits that we likely cannot pay. He caters to unions which are well on their way to bankrupting state, local and federal goverment with unsustainable pensions, not to mention social security and medicare.

He cares not a damn about national security, it’s only a requirement that he has to fulfill in order to stay in office. He’s doing everything he can to sell us out and make our nation weaker. He wants a nuclear free world? (SPIT) Then why is it okay for Iran to get nukes?

Trinity's own Roman-like architecture is unfamiliar for a church, which might explain why some outsiders found it cultish and strange. The congregation meets in a theater-in-the round, designed after secular buildings like the Parthenon and the U.S. Congress. Stained-glass windows flanking the entrance feature images of African-American leaders, not saints: W.E.B. Du Bois, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. There is also a glass sculpture of a man resembling Obama.

We Need a Mau Mau in Mississippi: Malcolm X’s Political Lessons for Today

Jomo Kenyatta, Oginga Odinga, and the Mau Mau will go down as the greatest African patriots and freedom fighters that that continent ever knew, and they will be given credit for bringing about the independence of many of the existing independent states on that continent right now. There was a time when their image was negative, but today they're looked upon with respect and their chief is the president and their next chief is the vice president.

I have to take time to mention that because, in my opinion, not only in Mississippi and Alabama, but right here in New York City, you and I can best learn how to get real freedom by studying how Kenyatta brought it to his people in Kenya, and how Odinga helped him, and the excellent job that was done by the Mau Mau freedom fighters. In fact, that's what we need in Mississippi. In Mississippi we need a Mau Mau. In Alabama we need a Mau Mau. In Georgia we need a Mau Mau. Right here in Harlem, in New York City, we need a Mau Mau.

I say it with no anger; I say it with very careful forethought.

On issue after issue, Preckwinkle presented Obama as someone who thrived in the world of Chicago politics. She suggested that Obama joined Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ for political reasons. “It’s a church that would provide you with lots of social connections and prominent parishioners,” she said. “It’s a good place for a politician to be a member.”

If Kenyatta, Oginga Odinga, and those who perpetrated the Mau Mau uprising are such wonderful political alternatives, how do you explain these decriptions of their impact on Kenya which illustrate them to be highly corrupt, vicious, blood thirsty, Communists in league with and politically beholden to radical Muslim extremists in Al Qaeda cells?

“Book links OBAMA to massacre of Christians”

“BO Campaigned for Kenya Muslim Terrorist”

The Kenya Connection [Barack Obama, Raila Odinga]

“OBAMA-backed ally forged pact with radical Muslims”

“Push for Islamic Courts in Kenya Alarms Christians”

There has been an ongoing war on the white male in the United States for some years now. For me, it started with a commercial that ran continually for a couple of years about the Wagner Power Painter. The commercial showed an apparently mentally challenged white man attempting to paint a fence with a brush. The poor dolt had paint all over him with excessive amounts dripping down his hand and arm, and off of the fence. To the rescue, a beautiful woman (apparently his wife) shows up with a Wagner Power Painter and finishes the job in just minutes.

I thought at the time, this is not a commercial about selling power painters. It's a commercial about how stupid and incompetent white men are. This barrage of propaganda has continued unabated. White men are generally portrayed as evil, fat, hapless dolts who need the advice of women, or the angelic black man who is at their side to give them moral advice.

Look to the Madison Avenue ad agencies if you want to see how to sell a product. More and more the main spokesman is a black man who speaks with god-like authority about a product. They know that blacks have been indoctrinated to think of white men as evil and white people have been so inundated with this propaganda that they are willing to accept the god-like image of a black man as the purveyor of truth.

Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. Watch the local evening news and see who is killing and robbing the citizens of America.

The wrong kind of ‘change’
Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (PA) - Sunday, October 26, 2008

WASHINGTON — Despite endless months of campaigning, Sen. Barack Obama has avoided explaining his relationships with several groups, many stemming from the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), that surround his friend, unconvicted terrorist and distinguished professor Bill Ayers.

While much is written about Obama ‘s 1995 political career launch from Ayers’ home, shared with his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, too little is being said about their effect on the presidential candidate.

Ayers and Dohrn were leaders of the self-proclaimed “revolutionary communists,” who strategically bombed across America in the 1960s and 1970s. Their targets included the U.S. Capitol, police headquarters and stations, office buildings and the Pentagon. Both were fugitives and both have expressed only sparse regrets.

Obama should answer questions as to who else from Chicago’s revolutionary groups participated in the launch of his political career. Was former SDS president Carl Davidson, now heading Progressives for Obama and a major figure in Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS), there?

CCDS, founded by a splinter group from the Communist Party infuriated by the defeat of the “evil empire,” remains hostile to America.

While CCDS is a small organization, it influences dozens of labor unions, city governments, academics and nongovernmental organizations. Some of its key activists are Heather Booth, Leslie Cagan, Angela Davis, Marilyn Katz, Merle Ratner, Mark Solomon and Manning Marable.

*3dDateline D.C. is written by a Washington-based British journalist and political observer.

CCDS includes some of those with leading positions in the Black Radical Congress , the Institute for Policy Studies, United for Peace and Justice and, of course, Progressives for Obama .

And, naturally, CCDS has close ties to Cuba, the Venezuelans and other communist parties including in the United States.

Today, many of them claim that SDS was a “peaceful organization.” Take Marilyn Katz, who oversaw SDS security during the 1968 Chicago riots.

During the “Chicago Seven” trials, a police officer testified that on one chaotic night in Lincoln Park, Ms. Katz briefed a group of protesters on a new addition to their arsenal of anarchy — guerrilla nails.

“She had two types,” the officer recounted. “One was a cluster of nails that were sharpened at both ends and fastened in the center. It looked like they were welded or soldered. She said these were good for throwing or putting underneath tires. She showed another set that was the same type of nails, sharpened, but they were put through a Styrofoam cylinder. There was a weight put through the middle, another nail, held together with something that looked like liquid solder.”

Perhaps Katz will grace a future Obama regime as she now does that of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, providing her public relations skills to a number of city departments, including police.

Today, Katz serves on Barack Obama ‘s national finance committee, is a registered lobbyist and organized the massive October 2002 anti-war demonstration in Chicago with Carl Davidson of CCDS, where Obama first went public with his opposition to the Iraq war.

Of course, she has been close with Ayers and Dohrn throughout the years, saying in an August 2008 interview that she had “no regrets” about her actions in the 1968 riots.

Another old comrade of Ayers is Heather Booth, a veteran activist from SDS, the civil rights-women’s rights anti-war movements and the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). She was a co-founder and one-time president of the Midwest Academy, which trains in agitation and receives funding from the Woods Foundation, whose board included Obama and Ayers.

Chicago Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) have helped Obama ‘s political career and have supported him. Its unions endorsed Obama ‘s campaign, and DSA-linked figures such as Congresswomen Jan Schakowsky, who wants to be his secretary of Labor, and Congresswoman Barbara Lee have come out strongly for the senator.

While the iron-disciplined Communist Party USA (CPUSA) has committed itself totally to the Obama cause, the DSA is less obvious about its support, although several prominent DSA members, including Dr. Quentin Young, a board member in Chicago, support him.

Joelle Fishman, chairman of CPUSA’s Political Action Commission and chairman of the Connecticut CPUSA, gave Obama a glowing endorsement in July and made it very plain that the CPUSA was a part of the Obama Unity for Change movement.

Joelle, the wife of CPUSA official Arthur Perlo and daughter-in-law of Victor Perlo, notorious as a spy for the Soviet Union code-named “Raider,” knows of which she speaks.

Victor headed the Perlo Group of Soviet espionage agents in the United States, which included several important U.S. officials, including a Senate staff director, that supplied the Soviet Union with economic, political and military intelligence, including aircraft production during World War II.

Before World War II, Victor was a member of the Ware spy ring of some 70 economists and lawyers working against the U.S. government for Russia. He was and remains a hero to the Left.

Quentin Young is a Chicago based retired medical practitioner and prominent socialist activist. He is a long time friend and supporter of Barack Obama and was Obama's personal physician for more than 20 years. Young was influential in Obama's thinking on healthcare, commenting in March 2009, "Barack Obama, in those early days—influenced, I hope, by me and others — categorically said single payer was the best way..." Young was also the personal physician to Martin Luther King while he was in Chicago, and to Weather Underground terrorist, Bill Ayers. He is a Marxist and a long-time member of Chicago Democratic Socialists of America, the largest socialist organization in the US, which was formed out of the New American Movement. Young was listed as a friend of NAM in 1981. He was a member of the Young Communist League USA in pre-WW2 Chicago and was close to the Communist Party USA at least until the early 1970s. In March 1979 Young was one of 50 supporters endorsing an appeal to raise funds to save the Maoist New York radical magazine the Guardian from going out of print. (more...)

Without the race card there is no modern Left. Marxism requires society ever be divided between two groups oppressor and oppressed, race happens to be the card they use in today’s world.
