Skip to comments.The Dividends of Racial Politics
Posted on 05/03/2014 4:09:48 AM PDT by Kaslin
Suddenly we cant seem to get race out of the news.
Congressman Paul Ryans tour around Americas cities, trying to get a handle on Americas persistent problems with poverty, turns into a racial incident, as a member of the Congressional Black Caucus calls remarks he made in a radio interview a thinly veiled racial attack that cannot be tolerated.
A simpleton law-breaking rancher in Nevada, egged on by reporters, says stupid things about black Americans, and suddenly he becomes a national figure with serious views about race.
And then a sleazy billionaire octogenarian, owner of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team, with a long history of racially charged remarks, some of which having resulted in lawsuits, becomes front page news when his equally sleazy young black Latina mistress surreptitiously records a private spat between them in which he makes tasteless comments about blacks.
Isnt race supposed to be behind us? Hasnt America elected, twice, a black man as its president?
But these days our president is far less popular than he was when, with much fanfare, he was first elected.
Americans are not thrilled with his signature health care law, which has expanded the reach of government in an unprecedented way into the private lives of Americans and American businesses.
Economic news out this week shows that the American economy in the first quarter this year hardly grew at all, providing, according to the Wall Street Journal, fresh evidence that the economic expansion that began almost five years ago remains the weakest in modern history.
Race is not going to go away because it is too useful to the party of the left. In fact, it has never been so important.
Democrats are well aware of the profound demographic shifts in the nation today.
America is becoming decidedly less white and the minority vote has and will continue to have increasing impact on the nations future.
The Washington Post The Fix political blog ran a piece this week saying Black voters could decide who controls the Senate in 2015.
According to the piece, Six of the 16 states with the highest black populations are holding key Senate contests in 2014. And, it continues, three of these states Louisiana, North Carolina, and Arkansas are widely considered the most pivotal when it comes to the GOPs hopes of winning the majority.
High black turnout in these key states can extinguish Republican hopes of winning back the Senate.
A 2013 survey by the Pew Research Center reported that 46 percent of blacks feel there is a lot of racial discrimination today compared to 16 percent of whites that do.
Democrats and the left wing press know that fanning these still racially sensitive flames is the way to turn out black voters.
Paul Ryan visited the Congressional Black Caucus this week to try and take the edge off the allegations thrown his way and talk about race and poverty. But why would 42 big government loving liberal black Democrats care about building bridges with a white Republican?
The black Caucus isnt about ideas or solving problems. It is about political power. Black poverty hasnt changed since 1971 when the caucus was formed. But some present and former caucus members have become wealthy.
Conservatives waste time answering the race baiters. Its time to talk directly to minorities around the country about policies that would actually help these communities.
Ideas like real unconditional housing vouchers that would break the HUD-induced ghettos and allow low income Americans to live wherever they want. Letting low income earners opt out of payroll taxes and invest those funds in a private retirement account. School choice programs permitting real education freedom and liberate black kids from teachers unions and failing public schools. And getting rid of minimum wage laws that do nothing but increase unemployment among minority youth.
Dems and their genuflecting media minions will do and say anything to get out the black vote. Sadly, they’re masters at controlling the black reflexive tribal hive-mind with hate, fear and victimhood.
So, essentially, this is all about pumping up Black & Brown turnout in November. So I guess we can expect the media to keep these issues front and center all summer up to the November election.
In other words, its going to be a long, “hot” summer.
The rascist cultural shakedown of America has begun.
This is black power nationalism.
When joined with socialism, it is called national socialism.
It has all of the ingredients necessary for the “F” bomb:
1) Racially motivated black superiority theory ( Rev. Wright , Nation of Islam)
2) The idea of historic justice , the sons and daughters of those who committed rascists acts must be responsible for those 150 yeras later
3) reparations will be forced through a socialist redistribution of wealth through taxation, health care, inequal enforcement of the law, prejudiced against white folks.
What is the F bomb? FASCISM. The whole point is for the left and the black caucus to create civil unrest so that presidential elections will be cancelled in 2016, or the lefts base so fired up there can be no fair , free election.
And now we see Fascism’s ugly face rising in America.Fascists ALWAYS seek a final solution, and now it has begun with these black fascists who think they are “freedom fighters.” What a laugh.
The GOP has no one to fight this horrid evolution.......yet.
We so desperately need Colonel Allen West and his like as well as Tea Party folks, including Sarah Palin, in office.
Its time to talk directly to minorities around the country about policies that would actually help these communities.
Just like my tagline states: Once the tainted finger of government touches anything the rot begins.
In 1964 The Great Society was put in place by Johnson and the rot truly began.
Up until that time poor people were issued food (and nothing else) by the government. After that wonderful socialist experiment began, the world was the bums “oyster.”
The only fear the bums had was the word “RESPONSIBLE.” In 1964 that word vanished from the government dictionary.
Now look; the pigs at the trough can’t get enough “free stuff” from the government and now they are using the word “racial bigot” to find even more legal ways to increase their strangle-hold on the working (and responsible) class.
It gets worse with each passing day.
“Ideas like real unconditional housing vouchers that would break the HUD-induced ghettos and allow low income Americans to live wherever they want.”
I thought HUD was already using Section 8 vouchers to spread low income citizens around town. Even the best apartment complexes in my town experience crime due to this social engineering.
NAACP POSTER HONORING HUMANITARIAN STERLING
LESSON FOR THE DAY: Dollars signs magically obliterate racism.
Discredited billionaire Clippers owner, Donald Sterling---caught on tape as a KKK-type racist---apparently was known for his history of screwing Blacks both as their landlord, and as an employer.....areas rigidly controlled by Civil Rights laws.
So how is it that the NAACP---the most venerable organization in the black civil rights movement----has repeatedly honored Sterling?
<><> Sterling got this years NAACP Lifetime Achievement Award.
<><> He got an earlier NAACP Lifetime Achievement Award.
<><> Sterling got the 2008 NAACP Humanitarian Award.
<><> And the 2009 NAACP Presidents Award.
Alas, it was all about the checks. Sterling got the most awards b/c: He paid the most, the leader of the Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP said at a recent press conference.
Just goes to show---there's always someone willing to say they're "for" their fellow-man, conniving on ways to make a buck on it.
Yes it will. (See: Nelson Mandela)
There’s nothing new here. It’s happened before and it will happen again.
Charles Darwins Theory of Evolution (often referred to as The Theory of Survival of the Fittest) describes the positive effects resulting from any pressure on an animal species that removes the least fit among the species and allows only the most fit of the species to reproduce. Many of us are well aware of this Survival of the Fittest theory, but few are aware that Darwin also makes mention of the negative effects resulting from unlimited reproduction of a species least fit when the weak, the lazy, and the stupid are left unchecked.
We like to think otherwise, but our species, Homo sapiens, isnt that long out of the trees and the same laws of nature that affect all of Gods creatures apply equally to us. If we were to observe any other species that had been allowed to reproduce without limitations, we would know immediately what the consequences will be.
Whenever the weak; lazy; and stupid of a species are allowed to reproduce unimpeded by predators that feed off the weak; lazy; and stupid, they soon outnumber the strong, productive, and intelligent. When the weak/lazy/stupid dominate the gene pool, the entire population becomes weak/ lazy/stupid, and then the population collapses.
In the past, when these collapses occurred within human populations, they have been referred to as a Malthusian Collapse. Thomas Malthus, a Nineteenth Century Economist, thought these collapses were caused simply because past civilizations had reached a point where human populations could no longer produce sufficient food supplies to feed themselves, but he never pinned down the exact reason for the food shortages.
We now think these collapses of past human civilizations have occurred whenever the unproductive weak/lazy/stupid greatly outnumber the strong/productive/intelligent of the population. In other words, the majority of the population becomes too lazy to perform the work necessary to provide for themselves and whats left of the strong/productive/intelligent refuses to continue to do it for them.
These collapses have occurred at frequent intervals throughout human history, and Western Civilization is, in my humble opinion, currently on the cusp of one of these collapses.
Let’s go over an old “ADAGE”. “THE STRONG WILL OVERCOME THE WEAK, AND THE SMART WILL OVERCOME THE STRONG”. Nothing, not religion, not any kinds of other “BELIEFS” will change that adage. Now, if we have enough “LIFETIMES” to consider this next adage, we will come to a realization, of the “TRUTH” of this next adage: “TRUTH WILL OVERCOME ANY LIE”. The problem with that adage is that it takes years, if not centuries, to prove it. The only thing these liberals, socialists and communists can hang their “HAT” on is the subject of “RACE”. Call it “RACE BAITING”, “RACE PIMPING”, or anything else you want. These people have convinced “MINORITIES” of this country, that the only thing that “PREVENTS” these “RACIST WHITES” from putting all these “MINORITY” back into “SLAVERY”, are these LIBERAL , SOCIALISTS and COMMUNISTS politicians, being at the “BREACH”. They are the ones standing at the dam, preventing these “RACIST WHITES” from being the slave masters again. Now, finding “MINORITIES” that can be convinced of these liar are just that “LIARS”, will be an impossible task.
whenever the unproductive weak/lazy/stupid greatly outnumber the strong/productive/intelligent of the population.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
You mean white folks? The Black nation within the USA is working very hard right now for supremacy.
