Zo has strong words for neo-confederate libertarians, especially those who infiltrated the CPAC conference. He reminds viewers why some libertarians have no place in the conservative movement, and why Republicans should embrace the vision of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass.

If you don’t know who Scott Terry is (the guy jumping up calling for segregation), he is a White Nationalist whose website (which I’m sure I can’t link to here) references and advertises for sites like Stormfront, Council of Conservative Citizens (not Conservative in spite of the name) and AmRen. He is also a regular on COCC and Stormfront radio.
We need to make sure these racist trolls don’t infiltrate our organizations. Buckley had them kicked out in the 50s and 60s, it is time for another purge.
Terry’s comment that slaves should have been ‘grateful for the food and shelter’ (paraphrased) sounds a lot like modern dems who promise all sorts of goodies in exchange for liberty. Instead of working crops, they just expect working the voting booth.
Very true. The Conservatives need to be colorblind, not to the point of politically correct but to weed out the ijits like Duke and his ilk.
Personally I find that there are just as many, if not more, black racists as there are white, and that a great deal of the stormfronters want to keep in like communities. The nonsegregation has to be because people want it. Obama has probably destroyed 50, if not a hundred years of movement towards true colorblindness.
I’m not racist, but I am culturalist...and the fact is many blacks, and whites for that matter, subscribe to an inferior culture, and it’s time to call them on it.
Indeed. There’s some serious weeding to do.
The culture of liberalism.
But of course, if you criticize culture, you still get labelled as a racist.
Gee, I thought this was a ZOT thread.
Funny, I am a veteran, large business owner, never done drugs, have a crew cut, am devoutly Chrisitan, and also a political lower-case-l libertarian.
I recognize that government is inherantly liberal and secular, and the best way for me and my family to safely and independently live a Christian life is for the government to pretty much leave everyone alone, except where it just absolutely cannot.
Why is “neo-Confederate” treated as synonymous with “racist”?
Simple truth is that if you go into any random conservative ‘white’ home in America and ask “Do you hate black people?”, you’ll get no for an answer. Why? Because any truly conservative person does not hate anyone based on skin color. You’ll hear complaints about gangs, Rap, welfare queens and the like. But that is not ultimately a black issue. It’s a liberal one. And why shouldn’t people bitch? It has wrecked both blacks, their families and the country as a whole.
Most of us know/are related to blacks that are no different than we are, simply because blacks ARE “we”. This entire issue comes down to liberalism and what it has done to us collectively.
Now the argument can be made that whites and blacks are two distinct people and to an extent, that is true, just as a NYC socialite and an Alaskan Eskimo are ‘different people’. But that’s neither here nor there. We are all human and share the same biology. If an 8 limbed insectoid alien landed on earth, there would be a true difference. So where am I going with this?
Each and every problem facing white/black relations can be solved by eliminating liberalism from the equation.
Who foments racism? Liberals.
Who keeps blacks subservient and on the plantation? Liberals.
Who creates tensions where none exist? Liberals.
Left to our own devices, we all get along just fine. Is it one big hyper integrated lovefest? No. Why? Because that’s human nature. Whites don’t all love each other. Blacks don’t all love each other. Individuality has that outcome.
Problem? Liberalism and it’s effect on everything. Solution? See above.
Because in the original sense of the term (coined by William F Buckley) it was specifically about racist elements in the party. I know some others have taken up the name too but the general term was specifically about them. (Of course many of the racists who use that term proclaim they aren’t really racist- probably like the Terry character in the video.) Reminds me of liberals saying they aren’t really liberal but ‘progressive’.
Subscribe, shoot, glorify an inferior culture.
Because libs have learned that Orwell had it right. When you control the language, you control the argument and ultimately the culture.
Because there is a strong correlation, not a causation, between ethnicity and culture,
and leftists don’t want to address actual cultural problems,
because that would imply some cultures as better than others,
leading to the question “which one is best”,
they will “shut up” the criticism with a dirty accusation of “racism”.
I’m in the under-40 set and among my age group there are a disturbing number of new so-called “conservatives” who are trying to use the Tea Party and other conservative groups as masks for their white nationalist schtick. They think that just because they oppose the Zero that we’ll let them in. We kick ‘em straight out once we find out their true beliefs (Like Belushi said, “I hate Illinois Nazis.”), but they keep coming.
I almost wonder if those infiltrators - I have no better word for them - are in the pay of a liberal group. I can think of no other reason why a bunch of white nationalists would come out of the woodwork NOW. Whether they are plants or not, we conservatives need to be vigilant and keep the ranks pruned of that type of badness.
