The real shame of racism in the U.S. is that racists are controlling the national dialogue, while non-racists are allowing it to be that way. To discover just how true that statement is, and why it’s true, one first must identify just who the real racists are.
Historically speaking, the real racists in America have enjoyed a singular political party affiliation…to the democrat party.
Democrats fought for slavery. Democrats founded the Ku Klux Klan. Democrats developed Jim Crow laws. Democrats stood for segregation. Democrats initially blocked the Civil Rights Act and democrats invented Affirmative action….the process of separating blacks and people of color from the rest of the nation for the business of protecting and advancing people based solely on race, regardless of their abilities as individuals.
Those are all historical facts, but today’s democrats, today’s liberals, are no less racist than their historical political party predecessors.
Today, driven by liberal ideology, and the liberal agenda, if you’re black…
You can march in the street under the banner of being proud of your skin color. If you’re Hispanic, Asian or of just about any other ancestral background…same thing…be outwardly proud of your heritage…march in the streets and create organizations that champion your specific heritage.
According to liberals…it’s all good.
But if you just happen to be white?
Forget it…if you hold a white march, create a white organization or express in any way your pride in being white…you are a racist.
The same thing goes for sexual orientation and gender assignment of course. If you’re gay, or bi, or you think you’re this when you were born that…be proud…be bold…march in the streets and demand you be respected. But be a garden variety straight person, unconfused because you are what you were born from a standpoint of gender…and you want to march down the street or hold a straight rally…why, according to liberals…you’re some sort of vile bigot.
The shame comes into play in the fact that far too many Republican elected officials, regardless of their identification as old school Republicans, or new school Conservatives, are to much the cowards to take a stand against the hypocrisy of it all.
Liberal hypocrites jump up and down, screaming at the top of their lungs while frothing at the mouth demanding that Confederate flags be removed immediately from public sight because, the liberals say, those flags are racist…and what have far too many Republican cowardly Governors done? They’ve tucked their little tails between their little legs and squeaked out an “ok” and ordered the flags removed.
Because they’re afraid if they don’t, they’ll be called a racist by a bunch of abject hypocrites.
Then the same bunch of shrieking, frothing liberals will demand that rainbow flags be flown here, there and everywhere at which point, what do the Republican cowards do? Tail tuck, whimper a whispered “ok” and fly the rainbow flag lest the hypocrites call them a bigot.
Let’s get back to race here…
Back in the 1800’s, starting well before the Civil War, it was democrats who started calling the enslaved…”niggers.” That term then became passé and was replaced by “negros” in the liberal lexicon. “Negros” was replaced by “colored” which was replaced by “black” which was replaced by “African American,” all in the name of liberal political expediency…but the labels always seem to run ahead of the way liberals really felt.
Take Lyndon B. Johnson as a prime example. As a young southern democrat senator, Johnson blocked the original Civil Rights Act. Then, when he became the president, Johnson, for political expediency, brought that Act back, and signed it, telling those who were there that, “I’ll have them niggers voting democrat for 200 years.”
Johnson however, at least according to his biographer, Robert Caro, was a virtual connoisseur of the word. In fact, according to Caro, Johnson used to slip that word this way and that depending on to whom he was speaking. “Nigra” was hos he pronounced it when talking to certain southern legislators and “negra” with others depending on which regional dialect they were most accustomed to.
However, according to biographer Caro, when discussing the Civil Rights Act with Mississippi Democrat James Eastland, who spent most of his life both in, and out of public office defending white supremacy, LBJ quite simply referred to the Civil Rights Act as, “that nigger bill.”
Then, there was the case of what LBJ’s chauffer, Robert Parker had to say. It seems that on one occasion, LBJ asked Parker whether he would rather be called by his name, instead of by “boy, nigger or “chief.” Parker, of course told LBJ he preferred to be called by his given name, to which, according to Parker, Johnson replied…“As long as you are black, and you’re gonna be black till the day you die, no one’s gonna call you by your goddamn name. So no matter what you are called, nigger, you just let it roll off your back like water, and you’ll make it. Just pretend you’re a goddamn piece of furniture.”
Sure, there are those who will claim that LBJ never said what he said, but the ‘200 years’ quote came from Robert MacMillan, an Air Force One steward who said LBJ uttered this comment to two governors during a conversation on the Civil Rights Act of 1964…and it would not have been at all out of character for LBJ to have said it. In fact…listen to this short audio clip of LBJ and you’ll hear him using such language.
Note that there has been absolutely no demands by liberals today that the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin Texas be torn down even though he was, by any stretch of the imagination, a true racist, while statues of Robert E. Lee, who didn’t even hold with slavery, are being removed on the demands of liberal hypocrites.
Let’s also have a look at Robert C. Byrd as yet another prime example.
Back in 1944, Robert C. Byrd wrote to Mississippi democrat Senator, Theodore Bilbo, “I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”
Byrd joined the Ku Klux Clan in 1942, and eventually became a “Kleegle” which is some form of mid-level position in that organization, and was a recruiter for the Klan.
In 1946, Byrd again committed pen to paper when he wrote to the Klan’s Grand Wizard, “The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia and in every state in the nation.”
All of that was, of course, before Byrd ran for office in 1952 when he, for political expediency purposes stated, “After about a year, I became disinterested, quit paying my dues, and dropped my membership in the organization. During the nine years that have followed, I have never been interested in the Klan.” He claimed that he had joined the Klan because he felt it offered “excitement” and because the Klan was anti-communist. Note that Byrd’s politically expedient switch came at about the same time as the McCarthy hearings were about to ramp up and suddenly being seen as an anti-communist by Republicans was as politically expedient as being remembered as a KKK Kleegle was to the democrats.
Byrd was looking for cross over votes by trying to appeal to a broader cross section of the public.
Naturally, as both political expediency and liberal hypocrisy dictate, Byrd would spend the rest of his days in public office trying to distance himself from his KKK past, and just as naturally, he would have the assistance of liberal hypocrites in that respect. In fact, upon Byrd’s death in 2010, Bill Clinton eulogized the former Kleegle by trying to downplay press reports regarding Byrd’s association with the Klan this way: “They mention that he once had a fleeting association with the Ku Klux Klan, and what does that mean? I’ll tell you what it means. He was a country boy from the hills and hollows of West Virginia. He was trying to get elected.”
So you see, a democrat back then, even as Byrd was claiming to be putting distance between himself and the KKK in 1952, had to cozy up to the Ku Klux Klan in order to get elected.
Notice that no liberals are rushing toward statues of Robert C. Byrd to tear them down…and why not?
To answer that pressing and appropriate question, we have to put the here and now into its proper perspective.
While today’s liberal talking heads in the liberal propaganda arm known as the mainstream media busy themselves in the business of the liberal agenda…labeling President Trump a racist, and joining liberal members in the halls of congress in calling for the President’s impeachment on trumped up false claims, they remain stone-cold silent regarding their party’s historical and real connections to racism.
The mainstream media is pushing, nonstop, the fake news agenda against President Trump claiming that he refuses to denounce racists and racist organizations. Nothing could be further from the truth, but the truth isn’t something of which liberals have any interest in.
Time and time again, Donald Trump, as a private citizen, as a candidate and as the President has, indeed denounced the racists and their organizations. It’s just that his denouncing them, over and over again, simply doesn’t fit the lies that liberals want to spread.
So why haven’t today’s liberals, all wadded up over Confederate flags and statues of Confederates rushed toward the LBJ Presidential Library and the Robert C. Byrd statue to tear them down, while rushing to every nearby microphone and camera to tear down President Trump?
Simple…hypocrisy for the left of us…condemnation for the rest of us.
Meanwhile, liberal “protesters” continue to flood the streets of our nation, driven there by a combination of the liberal mainstream media, and busses, for the expressed purpose of stirring the pot, getting into the mix of things in front of liberal mainstream media cameras, and causing violence and destruction supposedly, but falsely attributed to social justice standards of liberalism.
And how exactly do we know that such groups as the BLM (Black Lives Matter) and ANTIFA are there for that purpose? Simple…because since the destruction, arson, looting and assaults in Fergusson by the BLM, to the more recent destruction, arson and assaults of ANTIFA…via social media, and Craigslist, those groups have been recruited by, and paid by liberal George Soros, through his various organizations to be there.
While it has been widely reported that Sosos was at the very least, a Nazi sympathizer in his youth, liberals conveniently excuse this under the guise that Soros was only 14 years old at the time, and according to Soros himself, he only occasionally went with his pretend godfather to collect the belongings of Hungarian Jews. Facts are stubborn things, and we all know that as a matter of fact, children even younger than 14 years old were part of the Nazi machine of Adolph Hitler, and as far as anyone knows, there was no ‘take your Nazi pretend godson to work’ days back then.
Even so…today’s liberals would most decisively condemn such a fleeting association with real Nazis should any Republican have them, while they hypocritically look the other way for one of their biggest donors who is happily footing the bill to further their agenda on our nation’s streets.
Here’s the glaring truth of it…if you are being paid $15.00 per hour…the going liberal mandated minimum wage…to be in city “X” on date “Y” with your destructive weapon of choice “Z” to cause the maximum amount of trouble…you’re an employee…not a protester. You are a minimum wage liberal agenda tool of the liberal elite one percent.
You are nothing more to the liberal elite than a burger flipper at a fast racism joint.
I have no idea whether or not the young lady on the left in that video was paid to be there protesting against President Trump, but one thing is blatantly clear…she had no idea what she was talking about. She claimed that President Trump was a racist…the liberal mainstream media narrative…because he wants to ban Muslims from entry into our country.
First of all, Barack Hussein Obama had a travel ban against people from almost the exact same countries, and for the exact same reason as President Trump wants the same travel ban, and I’d bet my last dollar that the young lady in the video didn’t protest against Obama or call Obama a racist. Why not? Because when Obama did it, the mainstream media remained abjectly silent, as it was indeed a prudent thing to do for national security reasons.
And second…Muslim is not a race…it’s a political ideology masquerading as a religion…so why did that particular young lady, in concert with the liberal mainstream media and the collective whole of liberals everywhere claim that such a travel ban by President Trump was racist? Because, to that young lady, and so many others, all Muslims look alike, and based on what they look like, they must be a race, not a political ideology.
According to liberals, when you separate people based on their appearance, you’re a racist…and because that young lady, the mainstream media and the majority of the collective liberal whole did exactly that where President Trump’s travel ban was concerned…guess who the true racists are?
Again, since Obama had the exact same travel ban in place against almost the exact same countries, while the liberal mainstream media and the collective liberal whole remained silent…hypocrisy for the left of us…condemnation for the rest of us.
The reigniting of racism and racial divides in this country can easily be traced to one political party…democrats…and more specifically to a singular individual…Barack Hussein Obama…whose primary objective as president was to rip open old wounds, and reap the political benefits for his party.
Simply put, the immediate fallback position of liberals, when they discover they’re losing an argument regarding policy, is to label their opponent a racist regardless of the facts.
Sadly, far too many Republicans have become shrinking violates…cowards…in the face of patently outrageous and false claims only to tuck tail and whimper away, doing the bidding of today’s liberal goons.
President Trump was 100% correct in stating that blame for what transpired in Charlottesville belonged to both sides of the equation, and the overwhelming vast minority of those who claim association with both parties were the true racists involved. All President Trump did in the aftermath, was shine the light of truth on a situation completely driven by the lies and hypocrisy of liberals.
Make no mistake, none of the liberal bought and paid for “counter protesters” are showing up because they’re against racism…the driving factor behind those with open check books, is closed minds. Those “counter protesters” are there for only one reason…to shut down free speech…and that is a primary necessity for socialism, and it’s advanced cousin, communism to gain a foothold.
And how do we know this? Because there is no law that says one either has to listen to, or believe what another has to say, but there is a law that says they have a right to speak their mind. Liberals are being paid to shut down any expression of ideas that don’t meet their agenda, so that only the liberal’s lies…their propaganda will be heard.
The bottom line is this…as long as liberalism exists, so too will overt racism as the two and inexorably linked…in our history, as well as in our present.
