Drowning out the hate hustlers: Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck cannot steal America's soul
NY Daily News ^ | 8/30/10 | Stanley Crouch

Posted on 08/30/2010 7:30:51 PM PDT by pissant

Now that irresponsible opportunists have brought many of the misled to Washington, we can begin to contemplate what makes bigotry so appealing. Surely, being able to exclude is one of the great joys of the species because it can give a grand identity to the average person.

That identity as one of the elect made the red glow in Southern white necks. They felt part of a civilization in which they were looked down upon until they put on their costumes, screamed loudly at mob gatherings and committed acts of violence.

While bigotry is as American as apple pie, its shelf life is now rather short. The easily dismissed lies that Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich have used to fire up the true believers will not work. After race-baiting as clearly as they could on the issue of a proposed Islamic center near Ground Zero, all of them have attempted to "clarify" what they actually meant.

The reason that opportunists from the right have had to tread carefully is that nobody today desires to be called a racist. And so they've reframed their Islamophobia as an issue of constitutional rights. This is a variation on the purportedly genteel Southern racists who claimed that the real issue during the civil rights movement was not ethnic exclusion, but the rights of states.

Yeah, that's it Stanley. The minority communities you purport to represent will be far better off festering the notion that Tea Partiers really are KKK's, just in cargo shorts instead of sheets.

The minority communities you purport to speak for, like the 3000 Dept of Education employees at Rev. Al's rally, will be much better off following bitter race pimp hustlers like Al, Jesse, Jeremiah, and Obama, than to work with their white fellow citizens to finally reach that colorblind society.

In fact, a colorblind society would most certainly NOT be in the race pimps' best interests. There will be no need for such shakedown artists disguised as reverends. In fact, newspapers would likely get rid of such illiterate, deadwood, 'blame whitey' editorialists such as yourself, Stanley.

Beck didn’t trash Democrats. He lifted up Christ.

Blacks and Hispanics joined him to do so.

This imbecile refers to this as hate hustling.

Wow, isn’t this some kind of new record even for the Left?

I love watching Liberals heads explode. They know they are dead meat in November so they are just milking it for however much time they have left. Funny how liberals talk about souls when THEY are the ones who don’t have any

This guy’s a real piece of work. Never heard of him before, but nice of a big city daily to give a forum for this jackass:

Crouch was fired from JazzTimes following his controversial article “Putting the White Man in Charge”,[1] in which he asserted that white critics elevate white jazz musicians beyond their abilities.

Controversy

Crouch has reacted violently to critics and detractors. At the First Annual Jazz Awards, Crouch was invited to present an award. While reading the nominees, he made disparaging comments about two of them: trumpeter Dave Douglas and pianist Matthew Shipp. After the show, jazz critic Howard Mandel, who was chiefly responsible for creating and organizing the Jazz Awards, confronted Crouch about his earlier comments. After a short argument, Crouch punched Mandel and then was confronted by Shipp, who called Crouch “an Uncle Tom and a fucking loser”. However, the two were quickly separated and a brawl was avoided.[4]

I am so sick and tired of the worn out, befuddled, irrational, spittle-laden, bulging-eyed, hypocritical ravings from the left, that I can hardly even make out what they’re saying anymore.

It’s clear to me that we’ve gotten nowhere with the 25% of the country that is incorrigibly left-wing, and I don’t see us ever getting these nutjobs to see our viewpoint on America.

They’re dyed-in-the-wool traitors to the Founding Principles of this country, and will continue to work tirelessly to tear down what our people have built over these last two centuries, no matter what the patriotic majority of Americans do. They are irredeemable.

Can’t we just declare war on them, and get it over with?

There is so much wrong, how do you start?

“Drowning out the hate hustlers:”

Please explain what these people said that is “hate” (”hatred” to you, grammar moron).

“That identity as one of the elect made the red glow in Southern white necks. They felt part of a civilization in which they were looked down upon until they put on their costumes, screamed loudly at mob gatherings and committed acts of violence.”

What is this? 1st, you’re targeting “southerners” (is that an act of hatred and bigotry?), then you’re talking about what? Veiled comments about KKK - and of course the southerners are all KKK. Bastard.

“While bigotry is as American as apple pie”

OOOh, I know; liberals hate America. Only they would say something that makes it seem only Americans are bigots or capable of it.

“...nobody today desires to be called a racist. And so they’ve reframed their Islamophobia as an issue of constitutional rights.”

Last time I checked, Islam wasn’t a race.

“This is a variation on the purportedly genteel Southern racists who claimed that the real issue during the civil rights movement was not ethnic exclusion, but the rights of states.”

There he goes again, picking on 1 of the only 2 groups that can ever be attacked (their platitudes of “diversity” & “tolerance” notwithstanding). Never mind the ignorance on states’ rights.

“Can’t we just declare war on them, and get it over with?”

I hate to say I so agree with you.

However, I’ve always proposed a foreign-exchange program. We exchange those who HATE America here for those in foreign countries who WANT to be here (no, not Moslems who want to come to blow us up). I’d much rather have the good people from Africa, e.g., than our home-grown welfare queens and shirkers who do nothing but whine and complain and rail against Evil White America.

The trouble is, the libs wouldn't go, if you paid them to.

In their blackened little hearts, they know damn well they're lying about America. They know that this is the best place on earth to live your life, although you'll never get them to admit that.

No, what the libs want is to have their cake and eat it too. They've got zero honor or integrity about it. They want you and I to pay for their Socialist Utopia, because all of the other wonderful Socialist countries are broken failures.

Do they want to live under real Marxism, or Communism (as they claim?) HELL NO! They much prefer the status quo of living in an advanced and affluent country, with constitutionally protected rights - all the while protesting the wrongness of our system, to squeeze dollars out of the productive class.

In my family, two of us brothers are conservative/Republican. The other two are progressive/Democrat.

I quit using street drugs at 18, and my Republican brother never used drugs.

Guess which two still regularly partake?

This article cracks me up. The title alone tells me how afraid and desperate the left is becoming.

The author is afraid.

He is worried that people are waking up to reclaim their soul. That is exactly what Beck’s rally was about.

Restoring Honor. Restoring the American soul.

This moron is worried because it is the left-wing that tries to steal souls for their cause. It is the progressive movement that preaches giving up your soul for their perverted cause of anti-Life, anti-God, anti-America and anti-morality.

Conservatism preaches that the individual soul is to be cherished and protected. Life is to be cherished and protected. Morality and the Will of the People is to be cherished and protected.

The left-wing is worried that Natural law may once again triumph over their perverted and corrupt dictate against it.

'exclude"?

Seems like, over the years, there have been a lot "black" marches - name one that was a 'white march."

If anyone was "excluded," it was by self exclusion.

You noted:

Crouch was fired from JazzTimes following his controversial article “Putting the White Man in Charge”,[1] in which he asserted that white critics elevate white jazz musicians beyond their abilities.

Mr. Crouch MUST be totally kidding about this. During the height of popularity of jazz in the first half of the 20th Century, two names are always mentioned as the most famous of jazz musicians: Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong. No white jazz musician in those days came close to being associated with jazz music as these two I mentioned.
