Virtually everyone in America has heard the old song “Amazing Grace.” But probably not many people know Amazing Grace was written by a former slaver named John Newton. Fewer still may know that it was written on the foundation of black spiritual slave songs. Some believe God engineered this to make it clear that we are ALL connected, all His children, whether black or white or slave or free.
Dr. Alveda King released a statement today defending Herman Cain against his attackers, stating that Cain naysayers want to slay the American Dream–and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream. “These are political ploys by the establishment to attempt a high tech lynching akin to racial profiling in a vicious attempt to eliminate this man who has the courage to present life affirming solutions for America’s problems.”
Clarence Thomas’ words from some 20 years ago are once again applicable, this time concerning Herman Cain: “This is a circus. It is a national disgrace. It is a high tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves . It is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order you will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured, rather than hung from a tree.” The Left just can’t seem to help itself, can it?
It would be nice if Hollywood actors would stick to doing what they do best—acting—instead of disappointing so many of their fans by opening their mouths to reveal their malignant thinking while falsely accusing millions of their fellow Americans. Some of these Leftist actors have been given invitations to attend a Tea Party rally and see for themselves whether there is really any racism there. Think they’ll take the Tea Partiers up on their offer?
Have you heard all the racists like Harry Belefonte and Cornel West bashing Herman Cain? It must be racism, since every time someone (especially a Tea Party patriot) has criticized Barack Obama over the past three years, that has been “racism.” Do these racists not want a black man like Herman Cain to succeed?
Well, that’s the narrative of the “mainstream” media and other Leftists, right? Maybe this anti-semite from the “occupationist” movement “Occupy Wall Street” is just trying to follow avowed communist Van Jones’ advice for Marxist Wall Street protesters to emulate the Tea Party movement, right? Yeah, that’s it, I’m sure.
How did we get the different races of humans? Are they even races at all, but different skin tones of the same race? Did these different groups of humans come from the same human origin, or did they evolve separately? Is there really little difference between animals some “races” of humans? Are some races inherently more advanced than others? Watch this video for some answers.
President Obama recently chided the Congressional Black Caucus for “complaining, grumbling and crying.” The black Caucus is not criticizing Barack Obama because his big government answers don’t work. They are criticizing him for not doing enough of it. When people refuse to learn, when they refuse to look at the truth, they shouldn’t be surprised at the results.
I’ve talked to you before about the real racists in American politics are. In case you didn’t know, it isn’t the Republicans. The real racists in American politics aren’t found in the Tea Party. Listen to Rev. Wayne Perryman tell you where racism has lived for more than 150 years, and where the bulwark of freedom and opportunity has lived and lives today.
I’ve always liked Morgan Freeman, going all the way back to watching him on “Electric Company” as a kid. He’s a rich and convincing actor, and has a likable personality. What a shame that he made such a complete idiot of himself recently with his unfounded and unsupported claims that the Tea Party is racist. Herman Cain, the man who won the Florida Straw Poll yesterday, is living proof of just how wrong Freeman and his fellow liberals really are.
When it comes to government borrowing and spending as a way to “create” jobs, the Black Caucus is possibly the last vestige of the triumph of hope over experience. Or in Einstein’s famous definition of insanity, “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” What they should do is get behind “enterprise zones,” geographic areas of high unemployment that would qualify for special tax and regulatory relief to encourage investment and establishment of businesses.
Alphonzo Rachel has fun pointing out the lies, duplicity and hypocrisy of the Congressional Black Caucus (minus Rep. Allen West). These race-baiters are good at castigating any expression of Christian values in the public square…but they don’t bat an eye at going to a church to beat the drums of race war and class envy. They also don’t have any problem embracing the party that persecuted black Americans and held them down for so long…as long as that party will give them some cheap trinkets every now and then.
Excluding Florida Republican Rep. Col. Allen West, who is an honorable American war hero and conservative patriot, today I have a few words for California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters and the various other deceitful people in the Congressional Black Caucus and their fellow-traveling leftists who are falsely accusing and attacking the taxpaying American citizens who foot the bill for this monster federal government and bloated welfare state that you all so dearly covet, because of the votes and power it brings you. Are you listening? Good. Your evil, stupid shtick is not working.
As I was speaking of racists playing the race card earlier today…The Left is laughably desperate to paint conservatives as racists, and it shows when they go so far as to insert words a person never even said into a quote to make their opponent look like a bigot. So they make the claim that Michele Bachmann recently said to a crowd, “Who likes white people?”
The race-bating Left loves to brand Republicans and conservatives as racists; since their policies are grossly inefficient and contrary to American principles, there is little else they can do to discredit the ideas of their enemies. A brief trip down the memory lane of history reveals who the real racists are, and who remains the enemy of freedom.
Two names loom large in today’s news. Two names that ordinarily we wouldn’t think about together. But, in the great struggle now unfolding before us for our nation’s future, it seems to me these two quintessential Americans are worth thinking about in light of each other. One is Steve Jobs. The other is Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.
“The Obama Plan,” a very lengthy writeup at NewsFlavor, purports to be a conversation between an unnamed White House “insider” and a writer known as “Ulsterman.” The material, if true, contains some pretty amazing revelations about what is and has been going on inside the Obama Administration. Those revelations include claims about Obama’s birth, white guilt, a disengaged president, meddling in the GOP primary, and an impending race-baiting, off-the-charts brutal campaign for 2012.
Election of our nation’s first black president is delivering an unexpected message to our black population. Blacks are discovering that what a man or woman does — their actions — is what matters, not the color of their skin. It seems ridiculous to point out that this was supposedly the point of the civil rights movement: Purge racism from America. But blacks themselves have been the ones having the hardest time letting it go.
Rarely will you ever see anyone (even a Leftist) this desperate to maintain a thoroughly discredited narrative (well, the Soviets were pretty good at it, but they’re gone). The Daily Caller reports braintrust-of-the-Hollywood-Left Janeane Garofalo told braintrust-of-the-“mainstream”-media Keith Olbermann that the only reason Herman Cain is in the presidential race is “because he deflects the racism that is inherent in the Republican Party.”
In their desperation to keep pets, illegal aliens and dead folks voting, the Left conjures up silly claims that having to prove you are who you say you are will somehow rob certain people of their right to vote. Who among us doesn’t have–or should have–a drivers license or other form of identification to drive, take a flight, open a bank account or any number of things requiring positive identification…except voting? Who would have the wrongheaded audacity to claim voter identification is akin to Jim Crow Laws…except people primarily found in the political party that came up with Jim Crow Laws in the first place?
A life of government guarantees and controls is not a formula for building wealth. Freedom and capital markets are. Blacks need to decide which they want. And entrepreneurship must become part of black culture. Blacks need to get that poor people are not poor because rich people or rich. The formula for more black wealth: less government, more ownership and initiative.
Many whites that initially had supported our president are now crediting him for our current misery. But blacks, despite suffering far more, are far less inclined to hang it on Obama. The message that massive government spending and borrowing does not grow the economy has not reached blacks. Is this a racial thing? Whites will jump off the ship run by a black captain in a minute while blacks will ride it out until it hits the iceberg?
History shows us that from its beginning, the Republican Party fought against slavery and for the proposition that all Americans be treated fairly. Yet today, the constituency of black voters in America belongs almost exclusively to the Democrat Party. How did this happen? We owe it all to, first of all, voter inattention, but also to the long and proud Democrat tradition of lies and propaganda. As only he can, Andrew Klavan takes us on a journey to examine this stunning development.
When you’re conservative, it doesn’t matter what color your skin is–and that’s true in a couple of ways. Conservatives consider achievement and character more important than skin color, but liberals will always tar a conservative as “racist” regardless of the conservative’s skin color because its easier than debating an issue on its merits and defending policies that are indefensible.
During the 2008 presidential campaign, some of us on the right were astonished to hear Barack Obama speak of wanting to develop a “civilian national security force.” I look at this trend of “flash mob” activity as being an integral part of the American Left’s “civilian national anarchy force.” Yes, anarchy. And, what quicker way to usher in a police state—which might just require a civilian national security force—than to set in motion your anarchy force to get American citizens to demand that the government step in and put a stop to the lawless gangs?
