Sorry Joe Biden, But It's Liberalism That Chains The Poor To Dependency

Vice President Biden presented America with what liberals might call a “teachable moment.” Race has long served as a trump card silencing opposition. Whites wilt when challenged by race. But Biden ups the ante by insinuating Republicans trying to ease financial regulation harbor sinister intentions.

Biden warns blacks, “they gonna put y’all back in chains.”

More freedom, via less red-tape, translates as slavery. America is apparently so endemically prejudiced, “institutionally racist” some say, that minorities risk grave calamity without Washington’s muscular intervention. President Obama re-confirmed Biden as running-mate and refuses to repudiate him. Team Obama’s divisive message: Racist Republicans would thrust blacks back into bondage.

Rodney King once asked, “Can we all get along?” We’d do better without demagogues stoking racial animus through such incendiary ploys. Obama’s media surrogates dance too, regularly choreographing coverage to remind readers of an irredeemably racist country.

Recently, a church somewhere in rural Mississippi was plastered across the internet for refusing to marry blacks. Racism lingers it seems. Meanwhile, a huge black church in Chicago, which happened to spawn our president, spews hate regularly, yet reporters downplay this as a facet of black culture which whites dare not question.

Despite his decades-long dalliance with black racists, Obama received larger proportions of white votes than any Democrat since 1976. Artur Davis, former Democrat Congressman who switched sides, states, “But one would have to be blinkered to deny that Obama’s race in 2008 likely empowered him much more than it weakened him.”

But then Obama began governing. Democrats fleeing from his dismal record exaggerate racism instead.
