Skip to comments.Progressive Racism: The Hidden Motive Driving Modern Politics
Posted on 03/23/2014 7:16:03 AM PDT by rktman
Progressive politics is rooted in racism. Look carefully at most social or fiscal policies advocated by progressives and youll see that underneath their false public rationales lie hidden racist fears and assumptions some of which the progressives may be too embarrassed to admit even to themselves, much less to the world.
In modern politics, everyone doubts everyone elses sincerity. Each side automatically presumes that the other side presents a false public justification for its political views. And in most cases it is wise to doubt, because most public justifications are indeed lies sometimes unconscious lies. But surprisingly often the hypothesized alternative true motivation guessed at by the opposing side is itself completely incorrect. Especially when conservatives come up with theories attempting to explain what to them are mystifying progressive obsessions. What conservatives dont (yet) know is that under the surface, most progressive positions are motivated by racist attitudes and assumptions felt by white progressives, usually against African-Americans. Progressive positions often seem inexplicable to outsiders because the proposals emanating from them usually manifest as colossal social engineering experiments, which the progressives have only devised as a distraction from the shameful racist motivations at the core.

I remember having two discussions over many years. One when I was about 17 and not very politically knowledgable. It was with a black school mate who was going on and on about slavery and white folks. I told him yup, slavery was a bad thing and black folks suffered a lot-—BUT me or my ancestors weren’t even in this country—so I am not going to feel guilty. Many years later the conversation was with a liberal white guy concerning collective guilt—I said I had to deal with my own personal guilt, you think I am going to take on collective guilt? Your nuts—and so are white progressives.
Mornin’ Chode. (if you’re east of MS) Looks like only 3 responses to Zombie’s essay. It was a little long. :>)
If my geography is correct, you’re east of the MS. LOL! Don’t remember if I ever mentioned my kin folk showed up in the Hudson Valley region in the mid to late 1600’s so I kinda got ties to NY. I guess I’m a Dutch-American. Nah. An American.
the Hudson Vally is beautiful country...
Watkins Glen. Zoom zoom!! Me likey. No racing right now though I’m guessin’. Unless it’s snow machines.
“i live above Seneca Lake six miles from the Watkins Glen racetrack”
I had a beer in Hector NY once lol.
” where, Big Johnson’s??? just up the road apiece”
No. I saw that place tho on 414.
I was at the Two Goats Brewery.
” hell, that’s even closer... if you’re ever gonna be that way again, let me know and i’ll buy you a beer”
I will. I have some friends I visit in Trumansburg that I visit on a regular basis.
“T-Burg, home of the Moog Synthesizer and the now closed Rongovian Embassy, keep me posted...”
Yep. I’ve been in the Rongo many times. I was in Tburg just a couple of months ago.
Rumor has it the Rongo is going to re-open.
