Christian Adams Blows Whistle on Progressives and Race
American Spectator ^ | 06 july 10 | Jeffrey Lord

Posted on 07/06/2010 4:02:30 AM PDT by rellimpank

Christian Adams and Bill Clinton.

Who would have thought a heretofore unknown career Justice Department lawyer and the famously garrulous former President could combine to turn the spotlight on the centuries old -- if never formally acknowledged -- alliance between progressives and racism?

President Clinton first.

In winging along in his eulogy for the late West Virginia U.S. Senator Robert Byrd, former President Bill Clinton decided (impulsively?) to address the much commented upon knowledge that Senator Byrd spent part of his early career as an "Exalted Cyclops" of the Ku Klux Klan.

Blurted Clinton of that which must not be mentioned by liberals:

"He once had a fleeting association with the Ku Klux Klan, what does that mean? I'll tell you what it means. He was a country boy from the hills and hollows from West Virginia. He was trying to get elected. And maybe he did something he shouldn't have done and he spent the rest of his life making it up. And that's what a good person does. There are no perfect people. There are certainly no perfect politicians."

So. Bill Clinton says Robert Byrd was dallying with one of the most famously racist organizations in American history because he "was trying to get elected."

OK. Fair enough. (Not really, but we'll come back to this.)

But trying to get elected… to do what, exactly?

Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd, Ex-Klansman
by Michelle Malkin (March 8, 2001)

Ex-Klansman Robert Byrd, the senior senator from West Virginia, casually used the phrase "white nigger" twice on national TV this weekend. Enraged civil rights groups organized a protest campaign against Sen. Byrd and demanded that he undergo sensitivity training ... not.

The ex-Klansman, you see, is a Democrat. Democrats can join hate groups and utter the ugliest racial slurs and get away with it because they are Democrats. They belong to the party of racial tolerance and understanding. They're paragons of virtue, and the rest of us are bigoted rubes.

The ex-Klansman showed his true colors when asked by Fox News Sunday morning talk show host Tony Snow about the state of race relations in America. Sen. Byrd warned: "There are white niggers. I've seen a lot of white niggers in my time. I'm going to use that word. We just need to work together to make our country a better country, and I'd just as soon quit talking about it so much."

__________________________________________________________

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

In 1942, 24-year-old Byrd joined the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), whose parades in Matoaka, West Virginia, he had witnessed in his childhood. He was unanimously elected Exalted Cyclops, or leader, of his local chapter.[8]

Byrd, in his autobiography, attributed the beginnings of his political career to this incident, although he lamented that they involved the Klan. According to Byrd, a KKK official told him "You have a talent for leadership, Bob... The country needs young men like you in the leadership of the nation." Byrd recalls that "suddenly lights flashed in my mind! Someone important had recognized my abilities! I was only 23 or 24 years old, and the thought of a political career had never really hit me. But strike me that night, it did."[4] He participated in the KKK during World War II, holding the titles Kleagle (recruiter) and Exalted Cyclops [the top officer in the local Klan unit]. He did not serve in the military during the war, working instead as a welder in a Baltimore, Maryland shipyard, where he helped build warships.[citation needed]

Byrd commented on the 1945 controversy about racially integrating the military. Byrd, when he was 28 years old, wrote to segregationist Senator Theodore Bilbo, of Mississippi, vowing never to serve in such a military:

"Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.[5]"

He had earlier written "I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side".[6][7]

From the Washington Post:

"Byrd said in the Dec. 11, 1945, letter -- which would not become public for 42 more years with the publication of a book on blacks in the military during World War II by author Graham Smith -- that he would never fight in the armed forces "with a Negro by my side." Byrd added that, "Rather I should die a thousand times, and see old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.."..."

"during the general election campaign, Byrd's GOP opponent uncovered a letter Byrd had handwritten to Green, the KKK Imperial Wizard, recommending a friend as a Kleagle and urging promotion of the Klan throughout the country. The letter was dated 1946 -- long after the time Byrd claimed he had lost interest in the Klan. "The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia," Byrd wrote, according to newspaper accounts of that period. Byrd makes no mention of the letter in his new book."

Byrd was thisclose to the grand high exalted wizard of the KKK.

His position in the Klan was no mere gofer job or extraneous position.

He was near the very top of the KKK.

I’m sorry but that makes him a bona fide racist in my book.

And anybody who says otherwise is probably a racist themselves which means most of the democrats IN Washington DC.

Why blacks keep voting for racist democrats I will never know.

The only time democrats ever give a hoot about blacks or minorities is at election time. All the rest of the time they ignore them, neglect them, pay only lip service to them, discount them or just out and out screw them over.

And it's going to get more vicious. The Democrats are about to kick blacks to the curb in favor of Hispanics. It's a numbers thing, so hopefully blacks won't take it too hard.

What, after all, is the difference between the sentiments of the progressive Robert Byrd in his salad days as he tried to fan the flames of white anger in the name of providing Big Government…. with that of the Obama administration insisting it would not prosecute the Black Panthers in the Philadelphia case but would file a lawsuit against Arizona's immigration law? The latter a law that specifically forbids racial discrimination?

What is the connection? What is the same in these events that are, after all, some 70 years apart?

The point in each instance was and is to enflame a solitary race of people for political purposes. Whites for the progressive Byrd, blacks and Latinos for the progressive Obama. And by so doing scoop up the votes at the next election and the next and the next -- with the presumed progressive election victories used to inflate Big Government even more -- just in time to provide more services to the targeted race.

Exactly right!

Don't forget the many black racists on the so-called "progressive" left...

SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"

WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.

HANNITY: But I'm a — reverend

WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?

The democrat party is all about divisiveness not about unity and they use class warfare as the chief weapon.

Turning the poor against the rich.

Turning black and brown against white.

Turning Protestants against Christians and Jews.

Turning failures against success stories.

Turning deadbeats against productive members of society.

This is the recipe for democrats to lie their way to victory in elections.

I have never seen the white side explained better!
Pat Buchanan had the guts to say it. It is about time.

BUCHANAN TO OBAMA
By Patrick J. Buchanan

Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America . Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation.. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.... This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:

First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.. Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ‘ 60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks — with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas — to advance black applicants over white applicants.Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.
We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude??

Barack talks about new ‘ladders of opportunity’ for blacks. Let him go to Altoona ? And Johnstown , and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for ‘deserving’ white kids...? Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America ? Is it really white America ‘s fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?

Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?

We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena . And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.

Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago. This needs to be passed around because, this is a message everyone needs to hear!!!

OK...........

will you pass it on ?

YES. I did but will you?

Because I’m for a better America

Shocking, simply shocking, to find that a thugocracy would favor raw power over freedom and justice. /sarc/

You have to ask yourself why it would be that the losers of a war got to write the history books that tell the stories about the war and about the people who they blame for the war. Liberal southerners, in effect, got to write black Americans out of 20th century classroom history books - all the better to create a dependent class for them to manipulate and use to agitate.

The Democratic National Committee has launched a website to recruit and display embarrassing video and audio of Republican candidates taken by ordinary citizens at public events. The DNC is seeking to record “macaca” moments, according to Politico — a reference to an utterance by Sen. George Allen during his unsuccessful 2006 re-election campaign. On Aug. 11, 2006, at a campaign stop in Breaks, Va., Allen twice used the word “macaca” in reference to S.R. Sidath, a 20-year-old of Indian ancestry who was a volunteer in the campaign of Allen’s Democratic opponent Jim Webb. The word is said to be a derogatory term for a North African. Allen’s mother grew up in Tunisia. The flap resulting from the remark surely cost Allen votes in what turned out to be an extremely close race, and torpedoed Allen’s chances for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination. Now the Democrats are evidently hoping to record similar slip-ups that campaigns and journalists can use in ads and news coverage, Politico reports. The site was launched Tuesday with a mass e-mail from DNC Research Director Shauna Daly, with the subject line “The Accountability Project: Hold Republicans accountable.” The e-mail notes that the “macaca” incident was “just one moment. Who knows that else is being said when the cameras aren’t running? We don’t — but we sure wish we did. “That’s where the new ‘Accountability Project’ comes in. It’s a platform for citizens to document Republican candidates and their public statements at local events, as well as their campaign tactics. The Accountability Project allows you to submit videos, recordings and other items for publication online.” The site also states: “If you hear of any upcoming public events for Republican candidates in your area, you can let everyone know, so that other concerned citizens can get out there. “The project will enable folks to keep track of Republican candidates running for every office, up and down the ballot.”

All three are Communist. The commie left only USES religious issues to help them advance their revolutionary communist agenda. The "Black Muslim" movement in the US, btw, is largely a 'Black Liberation' communist front movement. It's no different than Wright's so-called "church".

Obama's Church: Gospel of Hate
Kathy Shaidle, FrontPageMag.com
Monday, April 07, 2008

In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obama’s pastor in a heated interview about his Church’s teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...

Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.

Catholics for Marx [Liberation Theology]
By Fr. Robert Sirico
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, June 03, 2004

In the days when the Superpowers were locked in a Cold War, Latin America seethed with revolution, and millions lived behind an iron curtain, a group of theologians concocted a novel idea within the history of Christianity. They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.

The Gospels were re-rendered not as doctrine impacting on the human soul but rather as windows into the historical dialectic of class struggle. These "liberation theologians" saw every biblical criticism of the rich as a mandate to expropriate the expropriating owners of capital, and every expression of compassion for the poor as a call for an uprising by the proletarian class of peasants and workers.

The Real Story Behind Rev. Wright's Controversial Black Liberation Theology Doctrine
Monday , May 5, 2008
FoxNews/Hannity's America
[special Friday night edition--original airdate May 2, 2008]

(some key excerpts)

["(Jose) Diaz-Balart is the son of Rafael Diaz-Balart y Guitierrez (a former Cuban politician). He has three bothers, Rafael Diaz-Balart (a banker), Mario Diaz-Balart (a US Congressman) and Lincoln Diaz-Balart (also a US Congressman). His aunt, Mirta Diaz-Balart, was Fidel Castro's first wife."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jose_Diaz-Balart]

JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO NETWORK: "Liberation theology in Nicaragua in the mid-1980's was a pro-Sandinista, pro-Marxist, anti-U.S., anti-Catholic Church movement. That's it. No ifs, ands, or buts. His church apparently supported, in the mid-'80s in Nicaragua, groups that supported the Sandinista dictatorships and that were opposed to the Contras whose reason for being was calling for elections. That's all I know. I was there.

I saw the churches in Nicaragua that he spoke of, and the churches were churches that talked about the need for violent revolution and I remember clearly one of the major churches in Managua where the Jesus Christ on the altar was not Jesus Christ, he was a Sandinista soldier, and the priests talked about the corruption of the West, talked about the need for revolution everywhere, and talked about 'the evil empire' which was the United States of America."

REV. BOB SCHENCK, NATIONAL CLERGY COUNCIL: "it's based in Marxism. At the core of his [Wright's] theology is really an anti-Christian understanding of God, and as part of a long history of individuals who actually advocate using violence in overthrowing those they perceive to be oppressing them, even acts of murder have been defended by followers of liberation theology. That's very, very dangerous."

SCHENCK: "I was actually the only person escorted to Dr. Wright. He asked to see me, and I simply welcomed him to Washington, and then I said Dr. Wright, I want to bring you a warning: your embrace of Marxist liberation theology. It is contrary to the Gospel, and you need, sir, to abandon it. And at that he dropped the handshake and made it clear that he was not in the mood to dialogue on that point."

Do you think that a Millions More Movement should not be involved in the development of Africa, the Caribbean and Central America? ... we need a Ministry of Trade and Commerce that can link the struggle here with Africa and the Caribbean, Central and South America.

Why blacks keep voting for racist democrats I will never know.

I'll go back to the line from The Right Stuff. "You know what makes this bird go up? FUNDING!" Not just blacks, but the majority of all constituents vote for the candidate that gets them the most stuff.

Byrd would vote to give people stuff. Here on FR, we talk a lot about political philosophy. When push comes to shove in elections, if I work at a government pork project and Robert Byrd shows up and promises that he will work to keep that project funded and my job depends on that job being funded, I vote for the guy that promises my job will be there next week.

“Turning Protestants against Christians and Jews.”

Protestants are not Christians? Shame on you.

To a liberal, the end always justifies the means. If Sheets had to join a few racist organizations, maybe even lynch a few uppity ___ers, well, he did it out of love, didn’t he?

It is amazing how feeble the Left’s defenses are becoming. It can’t be easy, even for a prevaricator of Bill Clinton’s stature, to ennoble such an ignoble man.

You're so right.

All we need to do is look at the current occupier in chief to see this on full display:

*Cambridge police acted stupidly
*dividing Catholics when he went to Notre Dame
*ignoring polls that 70% of Americans are against nationalized health care
*Allows a visiting head of state to tear down Arizona for enforcing a federal law

The list goes on and on....

Shhhhhhhhhh! Quiet! It is the dirty little secret. If you could take an honest poll between Democrats and Republicans, you would easily see that there are far more racists among Demorats than Republicans.
Shhhhhhh.
