How A Racist Calculates

Found this in a post that said Trayvon would still be alive, if “he was a white kid”.  If you comment, please do so respectfully.  No vulgarity and no racism.

David Horsey, Los Angeles Times

“This is not about black nor white, but of right and wrong. Had Trayvon Martin been a white kid walking home in the rain he would still be alive. That makes this an act of racism, which is both very sad and wrong. They need to put Zimmerman behind bars.

On Trayvon Martin

Over the last few days more and more people have been asking me to comment on the Trayvon Martin case.  I intentionally held back for a while. I wanted to wait for all the facts to come to light before I added my voice to the fray. We still don’t have all the facts, but unfortunately most people aren’t waiting for the facts to enflame an already spiraling situation. Here are some my thoughts on this tragic situation. You may not agree with me; I may not agree with you…but is there a way to civilly disagree while pursuing true justice at the same time? I hope. I hope.

Founding Father’s Rap “Mr. America”- by Powdered Zombies Racist?

H/T All American Blogger

Powdered Zombies is none other than Steven Crowder and Chris Loesch, wearing powdered wigs and dressed up in the garb our Founding Fathers wore.

Be sure to pay attention to the racist message at the 2:55 mark. I never would have known it was racist, but thanks to the liberal media, we now know…. this song and video is racist.

Next thing you know, a black-tie event is going to be racist. No worries- the liberal media will be sure to let you know when it is official!

The Sacred Cow of Racism

Racism sucksHonest discussions on issues of race are as scarce as hen’s teeth. Reporters and pundits are usually too afraid to speak on any issue that might be connected to race, unless it is to label someone a racist. Concerning racist language, I do not believe anyone should intentionally slander or use hurtful words against another race, culture, gender or person. But hurtful words exist and are a part of history with numerous examples in many American literary works. The writings of Mark Twain and the poet Carl Sandburg come to mind. People today refer to the slang word “nigger” as the “N” word, afraid to actually say it within the literary context in which it may be found, thereby equating it with vulgarities and obscenities that are censored and bleeped out. I do not personally think this word should be used in a derogatory manner, BUT, to place it on the same level as vulgar and obscene four letter words that are unmentionable is ridiculous. I do not believe the word should be used in an offensive manner to denigrate and offend, but most of the ones who are crying “foul” have made a career of being offended. Vote pandering liberals and race baiting Black leaders such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have almost succeeded in having the word removed from history, literature, and classic films, labeling anyone who might use or read the word in a quote, as a white supremist, card carrying Klan member who would lynch all Blacks if only given the opportunity.

All references to race are not racist. Facts are facts and cannot be changed. According to the media, in the quest to not offend, when a murder occurs and the suspect is a Black person, then excuses may be made for his or her behavior. But if a Black person is killed by a white person, the White murderer is painted as racist. If a certain crime statistic reveals a higher percentage of Blacks or Hispanics are incarcerated as opposed to Whites, the cry “racism” is heard, yet, if the data is accurate, facts are facts. That is not racism, just factism. Truth is color blind.

A common cry from some Blacks of today is that of victimization. They are “victims” in a White man’s world. The truth is, they really have been victimized…..by White and Black liberals. Liberals who claim to be for the little guy, the poor and the minorities, have actually created a slave system of government dependency, thereby robbing these groups of the liberty to be all they can be, discovering their untapped potential. They have been successful in hypnotizing many Blacks, including Black ministers, into believing they cannot make it on their own and their economic salvation lies in the Democrat party and the promises of self appointed Black saviors. But the tide is turning and there is a growth in conservatism among Blacks today, as they throw off the man made shackles, reject government socialism, accept responsibility and begin to think for themselves. Until more Blacks take this step, they will remain in the racist world of Jesse Jackson.

Does any of this mean there is no such thing as racism? Certainly not. Racism is still an ugly part of humanity, and is probably as old as the human race. Real racism is wrong. There is a test which can be used to determine if you are racist. For instance, if you believe any individual is going to act a certain way or be predisposed to do certain things simply because of their color of skin or ethnicity, then you are a racist. If you think someone is more likely to be lazy, steal, be immoral, etc. simply because they are of a certain race or ethnic group, then you are racist. Also, if you promote or demote anyone based on race, then you are a racist. That includes voting for or against anyone based on race. Many have shamelessly admitting to voting for Obama because he was Black. That is racism.

If a certain act, acts, lifestyle, or philosophy seem to be more prevalent in one people group than in another, then culture is the culprit, not race. For instance, a people group speaks a certain language, not because of some inward racial programming, but because of culture and geographical location. There is, however, one inward trait which is inherited by all, regardless of race, and that is depravity. Sin is inherited by all from father Adam and only ONE person ever missed inheriting sin…..Jesus Christ. And that was simply because Joseph, who was descended from Adam, was not His father. The presence of sin is the root cause of racism and bigotry in mankind and will always exist.

A common fallacy today is the assumption that racism and discrimination are the same. Everyone discriminates. I discriminate when choosing what to watch on TV, or what to view as entertainment, or who I want to spend time with. Is that wrong? I explained this one day in a college class I teach. When I got off on the issue of race and prejudice, some of the students, Black and White, began to get uncomfortable. I told the students to take notice at lunch time and watch as students left the campus to go eat at different restaurants in town. My point was that birds of a feather would flock together. Sure enough, some of the guys segregated from the girls and went together, some girls teamed up and went out with one another, and several of the Black students gathered and went out to eat together, as well as our non-traditional students (non-traditional because they are older than the younger college kids and have families) who “discriminated” against all the rest, and grouped together. Did any of these groups discriminate against any of the other groups? No. They made discriminate choices concerning who they wanted to spend time with, but did not discriminate AGAINST anyone. At gatherings, religious and secular, I have seen men gather with men to fellowship, women gather with women, and among the children, boys with boys, girls with girls, rednecks with rednecks, professionals with professionals, but you get the picture. People of similar gender or interests or backgrounds or culture, gravitate to one another. They are not shunning others, just simply choosing their comfort zone. When allowed to choose, humans, as a rule, choose to segregate with their own kind, whether by race, gender, class or socioeconomic level.

Bottom line: Talking about facts of race is not racism. Choice based on race alone is racism. All discrimination is not wrong, and mutual segregation by choice is a normal accepted practice.

The Real Racism in the American Political System

If you’re like me, you’re probably tired of being called a racist because you’re an evil conservative and you don’t like Barack Obama. Because obviously the only plausible reason for disliking Obama is because he’s black. It couldn’t possibly have anything to do with the fact that he’s a socialist and is intent on destroying the Constitution.

And as the 2012 election draws near, this kind of rhetoric is only building. There are pictures of Obama all over Facebook attacking the Tea Party and supporting Obama, many of them specifically directed at the ‘racism’ of the GOP.

Well I’m not a racist, and neither are any of my conservative friends. There’s a certain talk show host who is always telling me to do my own homework, so that’s exactly what I did. So, for the liberals who are so quick to jump to the race card, let’s take a look at racism in the GOP and DNC throughout the history of this country.

First of all, Democrats did not end slavery. Abraham Lincoln, a Republican, and the 39th Congress ended slavery with the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment in 1865. The majority party in both houses of Congress was Republican. The amendment passed by a vote of 119 to 56. 86 Republicans voted for the amendment, along with 15 Democrats. 50 Democrats voted against the amendment. And let’s not forget Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which freed slaves within the Confederacy.

Many Democrats will breeze right past Lincoln and the Civil War and champion President Lyndon Johnson, who signed the Voting Rights Act into law in 1964. What you won’t hear about them talk about is LBJ’s record with civil rights legislation prior to his presidency. During his time in the Senate and the House, Johnson voted against every piece of legislation dealing with civil rights that came for a vote. Johnson’s condescension towards minorities is well documented. Take for instance, this little gem of a sentence that Johnson said while discussing the passage of the Civil Rights Act: “I’ll have them n**gers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” Sound racist to you? Yeah, me too.

And for those who say, well he’s just one president, let’s not forget Andrew Jackson or FDR. Andrew Jackson, a Democrat, enforced the Indian Removal Act, which forced many Native Americans off their land. The long walk they had to endure to reach new land where they could live killed many Cherokees. The Indian Removal Act was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, but Jackson blatantly ignored their ruling and evicted the Native Americans anyway. Similarly, FDR put an entire minority race, Japanese Americans, into internment camps during World War II.
Now, remind me again, which party is racist? I’m just proud to be a member of a party that didn’t have a prominent senator who was formerly a grand wizard of the Klu Klux Klan.

Cain: Perhaps Able, but Doomed From the Start

courtesy Wikipedia Commons

This will be my obligatory Herman Cain post, and I’ll bid some of you farewell at the outset because you won’t like what I have to say. That’s fine, there’s a comment box down below or you can post it to Facebook or Twitter and slag me there.

Herman Cain was a relative unknown on the national scene until bursting to the front of the Race for the Republican Nomination to run for the Presidency in 2012. I had heard of him as a radio talk show host and had heard him fill in for Sean Hannity, I believe, once or twice. Even then I noticed that while he has a great speaking voice and a very down home folksy way about him he has a tendency to misspeak or misuse words, mind you I’m sure he knows how to pronounce ‘Corpsman‘ and what it means, but for any candidate or anyone speaking publicly it’s one of my pet peeves. I think it betrays an underlying lack of preparation. No one is perfect and I’m not wooed by verbal fluff (I was dismayed in the ’08 election cycle listening to people talk about this ‘Amazing Speaker‘ from Illinois and remain so) I just want someone who is trying to convince me to elect them to the most powerful office in the land to be able to do it without making me cringe as they butcher the language. That was the first thing I noticed.

THE Herman Cain’s tendency to speak about Herman Cain in the third person was and is also a bit off-putting.

As he began his campaign I noticed that he was sketchy on specifics both of history and current events but much more telling to me was that he was weak in explaining his own positions. I’m sorry but if you have come up with what you’re promoting as your signature program, let’s take his most famous ‘9-9-9 Plan’ and note that at one point he said perhaps it would be 9-0-9, and you introduce it before you have the details worked out I refer you to my previous point about not being prepared. Hey, I was a good student, but my ‘dog ate my homework’ a time or two however, again, this is the Presidency we’re talking about and the whole ‘I’ll consult my assembled panel of experts’ answer doesn’t cut it for me. For one thing we’ve seen what some of the so-called experts have wrought on our country for the past century and I’ve had enough of it, and for another… Who are these experts going to be? Cain had not surrounded himself with an all-star cast of campaign insiders.

I don’t think a candidate should try to be ‘Mr. Know-it-All’ (see Newt) however I prefer a candidate with a firm grasp on the facts and on history to one who is unsure of some rather basic terms from recent world history and especially when said candidate tries to explain away his getting caught out with a series of weak excuses.

Then the multiple ‘Bimbo Eruptions’ began. First the Politico story then Gloria Allred and Sharon Bialek all culminating in the Ginger White allegation of a long-term extra-marital relationship that was apparently the straw that broke the camels back. I do not know nor do I care if a single one of the allegations were true. I do not know nor do I care where they all came from. What did concern me was that Herman Cain carried on a 13 year extra-marital relationship of some kind with a woman who he acknowledged giving money to without his wife knowing about it.

Deal Breaker, Minister Cain. Sorry sir but you and your supporters were the ones who brought up your faith. Scripture says ‘the two become one flesh’, so at the very least Mrs. Cain should have known what Mr. Cain was doing with her money.

But let’s get to the part of this that will do the most to alienate you.

Herman Cain is Black, or an African-American if you’re into hyphenating people. For some who want to see Barack Obama defeated in 2012 this was apparently some sort of secret weapon. If only the Republican Party could field a viable candidate with a high enough melanin content in his or her skin Obama’s defeat was certain. Apparently this must be because… well, I actually can’t think of a coherent explanation for this vapid reasoning.

Anyone who voted FOR Obama in all or in any part because of his ‘race’ is a Racist.

Anyone who voted AGAINST Obama in all or in any part because of his ‘race’ is a Racist.

Anyone who supported Herman Cain in all or in any part because of his ‘race’ is a Racist.

Too harsh? I think not.

The Democrat party has done a masterful job of painting themselves as the party of ‘the little guy'; the party that looks out for Minorities and the Underprivileged, the poor and oppressed. At the same time they have done a masterful job of painting the Republican party as the party of the Rich, Fat Cat Capitalists; the party that wants to reverse all the ‘progress’ the party of the little guy has managed to ‘eek out’ over the past hundred years and return us to polluted streams and land, acid rain, polluted air, unsafe food, oil spills… basically killers of kittens & puppies.

The Democrat party owns the Racist vote. Well, they own the overwhelming majority of it.

I have seen some folks on Twitter and elsewhere attempting to sell Herman Cain on the basis of ‘If we nominate him the Democrats can’t use Race against us…’.

Thinking that shows a naivete that borders on pathological. The Democrats will never stop using race as a wedge in this country. It also belies a misunderstanding of just how much damage Leftists within the Democrat party have done to the thought processes of the ‘Black Community’ over generations by destroying the family unit and fracturing the most basic societal building block. The ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ is very real. Misinformation, disinformation and blatant lies have taken root and metastasized within the black culture and it will take several generations to undue the damage. Many blacks who think for themselves did not vote for Barack Obama, and many more will not vote for him again. It had and has absolutely nothing to do with his race. They didn’t or won’t vote for him based on the fact that they saw through his rhetoric or simply disagreed with his politics. Remember, in California, 70% of African-Americans and 53% of Latinos supported Prop. 8. defining Marriage as between one man and one woman and For Obama on the same day. They were then called Religious Bigots or worse by the Homosexual Lobby.

Our country is at a precipice. In the next election we will decide to attempt to begin to reverse course from the accelerated leftward rush that finally woke many of our fellow citizens up to the 100 year assault that the country has been undergoing, or not. We may decide to continue or even accelerate the headlong rush for the rocks where great empires go to dash themselves into little pieces that are chronicled in tomes with titles that start ‘The Rise and Fall of….’. This is going to be an extremely long and hard fight. It has taken a century for the Left and So-called Progressives to drive us to this point and it will take a similar amount of time, energy and much more courage than the Right has ever shown to undo what has been done.

Making decisions about a candidate based on melanin content or TelePrompTer reading ability or the crispness of the crease in their pants or their Religion (see Romney and some folks Mormon Bigotry) or any other superficial reason has us at the precipice.

Adherence to First Principles, a return to and reverence for Constitutional Governance and the candidates ability to express those ideas and their demonstrated personal character and experience which would lead us to believe they will govern as they campaign is all we have to go on or hope for in choosing a nominee.

To Kill a Mockingbird – The Lynching of Herman Cain

Fifty one years after Harper Lee penned “To Kill a Mockingbird”, we are watching the same story played out in real life. Truth may be as strange as fiction after all.

Harper Lee’s novel, set in Maycomb Alabama during the depression, tells the story of two children and the lessons they learned as their father, attorney Atticus Finch, defended an innocent black man accused of sexually assaulting a white woman.

To watch the media feeding frenzy surrounding Herman Cain of late, I cannot help but be reminded of the American classic tale written by Lee.

From the 1962 movie, perhaps we will remember Mr. Finch’s Jury summation: “To begin with, this case should never have come to trial. The state has not produced one iota of medical evidence that the crime Tom Robinson is charged with ever took place… It has relied instead upon the testimony of two witnesses, whose evidence has not only been called into serious question on cross-examination, but has been flatly contradicted by the defendant. Now, there is circumstantial evidence to indicate that Mayella Ewel was beaten – savagely, by someone who led exclusively with his left. And Tom Robinson now sits before you having taken the oath with the only good hand he possesses… his RIGHT. I have nothing but pity in my heart for the chief witness for the State. She is the victim of cruel poverty and ignorance. But my pity does not extend so far as to her putting a man’s life at stake, which she has done in an effort to get rid of her own guilt.”

While this doesn’t quite apply to Herman Cain, because there is not even circumstantial evidence in his case, the attitude of the left, particularly in the Media, and most particularly on MSNBC seems to be identical.

In her novel, Harper Lee says of racial prejudice, “As you grow older, you’ll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don’t you forget it – whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash. “ (Atticus Finch)

As I listened to MSNBC’s Morning Joe Tuesday morning, they discussed Herman Cain. After Donny Deutsch described the GOP race as a vaudeville show, and one must wonder does he REALLY want to go there, black-face make-up and all, he goes on to describe Mr. Cain’s top rating in the polls at 20% to 23% as “people just wanting the show to go on, and if Mr. Cain goes away, there is no show.” When discussing Herman Cain’s pause answering a question about his agreement or disagreement with President Obama on the handling of Libya, Mike Barnicle said that Herman Cain is a joke. Mr. Barnicle should have listened to the rest of the answer, which as Howard Dean said, was the correct one. After gathering his thoughts, Herman Cain responded that he was not privy to all of the information about the situation in Libya and who the rebels were. We still don’t know exactly who the rebels are, but we do know now, that they want to impose Sharia Law in that country. They may well be Al-Qaeda jihadists for all we really know. The “clowns” in the room (as Barnicle referred to the GOP field) really seem to be the commentators on MSNBC who, like Mr. Cunningham and the other residents gathered outside the Maycomb Alabama courthouse seem intent on a lynching. Why are they so afraid of a strong principled black man. And like Mr. Cunningham, do they need an 8 year old Scout to hold a mirror to their prejudice and shame them back to their hovels.

After calling Mr. Cain “Stupid”, fortunately without the epithet, Mika Brzezinski then smirked about Mr. Cain’s offer of the Secretary of State job to Henry Kissinger, and his refusal of it. Cain said that Kissinger declined because he did not wish to come out of retirement. Cain said he was grateful that the former Secretary spent some time with him and answered questions about the middle east. If seeking counsel on foreign policy from one of the most respected and knowledgeable statesman in modern times is stupid, one wonders what brilliant might be. One has to expect that the daughter of Jimmy Carter’s National Security Advisor would be a little left leaning, but one would hope she would show a little intelligence and insight.

Why all the Cain bashing from the left? As Ms. Harper’s novel points out, “Why reasonable people go stark raving mad when anything involving a Negro comes up, is something I don’t pretend to understand.”

Maybe it can’t be understood, but it seems possible that the left, with it’s long, long history of truly renown racists like George Wallace, Woodrow Wilson, Bull Connor, Robert Byrd, and Stephan Douglas among others, can bury an attitude so deeply that they don’t even notice it. It seems equally possible that, by what psychologists might call projection, it is impossible for the left to fathom a GOP that is truly colorblind. Perhaps they cannot see that the bulk of the Republican party, and particularly the Tea Party took to heart Dr. King’s dream, that we do judge a man, not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character. That certainly would explain why Tina Brown, Mika Brzezinski, Mike Barnicle and their ilk are having such a hard time understanding why Herman Cain remains at the top of the Iowa polls, and why they must use personal ridicule to attack him, rather than try to joust in the arena of ideas.

More stereotypes have been thrown around by the political pundits, particularly on MSNBC than have been heard in decades. What’s worse, they have completely ignored the recent heinous acts of Anti-semitic vandalism and mayhem in Crown Heights, as well as the anti-Jewish rhetoric being spewed by some of those lovely souls attending Occupations about the nation.

While they smirk, and joke and impune, perhaps they have failed to realize that our once great nation is declining rapidly into chaos. We have no leadership in the halls of Governance, our freedoms are being usurped as the regulatory agencies attempt to enslave us to the nanny state, our economy is near ruin, our youth have no work ethic, no values and no sense of responsibility. Our financial institutions behave recklessly while those in oversight line their pockets. And rather than debate policy, rather than seek men and women with real ideas about how to extricate ourselves from the weeds and point this once mighty ship of state back toward the main channel, we should laugh and poke fun about how long it takes for a man of honor to answer a question? In what kind of insane world do we find ourselves? Should we seek the white rabbit and a bite of the cake which reads eat me?

Mr. Cain is an honest man, with good ideas who cares about America and the direction in which this nation is headed. Who could blame him if he took up his hat and went home, yet here he is, offering his leadership to a leaderless Republic. Kick him if you wish, but do so at your soul’s and your nation’s peril.

Herman Cain In The News Again- A Skit

Open the scene at a national lame stream media newscast

News Anchor:  “We have a report from the scene that Republican Candidate Herman Cain is attempting to swat a dangerous mosquito.  We will be going to our field reporter later in the news cast.  This is really big, a man swatting at a mosquito that could knock him out of the presidential race.  This is a story that could end a bid for a presidential nomination.  More later on that but for now we will take a commercial break.”

Now Behind the scenes, off air, what the viewers can’t see or hear:

Field Anchor:  (Laughing) “You should see this guy. I keep telling him there is a mosquito buzzing his head but there isn’t.  He’s waving, and waving.  This is hilarious.”

Anchor:  “You idiot, we have been hyping this story since the beginning of the telecast.  We can’t go to the audience and tell them it is a fake story to waste their time and unfairly destroy a career.  What are we going to do”?

P.R. Man:  “Don’t worry.  Just begin to talk about what a pathetic job he is doing swatting at the mosquito”.

Anchor: “They won’t buy that”.

P. R. Man:  “Yes they will. Our viewers are so stupid they would believe it was snowing in hell if we had fire, snow, and a guy in a devil suit in the same picture.  And we can get the Republican talking heads to agree with us because they want the air time”.

Anchor: “What about the TEA Party and Cain supporters?”

P. R. Man: “Don’t worry about them. We will just call them racists, mosquito-phobes, and Nazi’s, you know, like we usually do. Our viewers will eat that up, all 2% of them.”

Now to the report:

Anchor: “Now we go to our field reporter who is with Herman Cain.”

Field Reporter:  “Thank you, anchor. I am here with Republican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain.  He is swatting at what he thinks is a mosquito.  No one has actually seen the mosquito but it has been reported by anonymous sources that one is actually hovering around his head. What is unique about this story is that he can’t seem to hit the mosquito.  He doesn’t seem to be capable of swatting this mosquito because he isn’t holding his hand in the right position.   Mr. Cain, you seem to be having a hard time with this mosquito.”

Herman Cain:  “I don’t see any mosquito.   I don’t hear any mosquito.  Where is this mosquito?”

Field Reporter:  “Mr. Cain, how does it feel to not be able to swat this mosquito you can’t see or hear?”

Herman Cain: “Do you see a mosquito?”

Field Reporter:  “Mr. Cain, there must be a mosquito.   We have reports of a mosquito hovering around your head.  I don’t need to see the mosquito, it has been reported to exist.”

Herman Cain:   (stops waving , frustrated by now) “Do you see a mosquito? Show me this mosquito you keep telling me about and I will swat it.  There is no mosquito for me to swat.”

Field Reporter: “Well, Mr. Cain has stopped swatting at the mosquito and has yelled at me. How could he talk to me that way?  Mr. Cain, has spoken rudely to this reporter.  Now back to the anchor desk” (reporter breaks into sobbing)

Anchor: “Thank you field reporter.  Well that was just unnecessary.  Not only can Mr. Cain not swat the reported mosquito, he has been gruff to a member of the media.  Analyst, what do you think of this little outrage?”

Analyst: “Well it is obvious that Mr. Cain is not very good at swatting mosquitos.  Not only can he not swat a mosquito properly, he seemed to get miffed because we kept reporting on a mosquito that wasn’t there instead of listening to what he had to say about the economy.  It is painfully obvious to this analyst that Mr. Cain does not realize who he is speaking to.  He will learn to bow to us like the other Republicans do.”

Anchor:  “Thank you, Analyst, I quite agree. Now a word from our sponsor.”

Off air once again:

P.R. Man: (Comes running in): “That was great. Everyone in every media outlet is talking about how bad Herman Cain is at swatting mosquitos. They have no idea that the reported mosquito doesn’t even exist.  And our viewers are all talking about Cain’s mosquito swatting technique. By the time they figure out there was no mosquito Herman Cain will be ruined.”

Anchor:  “We really pulled that one off. Everyone is talking about how a man can’t swat a mosquito that doesn’t exist.  We have total control of public opinion. I AM ALL POWERFUL!!!! Now the rest of the candidates will bow down to us and be afraid to oppose anything we say. If they do, we can do the same thing to them and all the others will cower before us.” (Maniacal Laughter).

 

Racial Hypocrisy Is Alive and Well in America

As we head into another Presidential election cycle, racism has once again becoming front and center in the focus of American political discourse.  Unfortunately racism, and the hypocrisy that goes with it, is indeed alive and well in our nation today, 146 years after the Civil War ended and 46 years after the Civil Rights Act was passed.  It saddens me to see that some in this country have not progressed any further along the road to acceptance of race as a non-factor in life.

If you don’t believe racism is real, just look at the media treatment of Herman Cain.  Like him or not, agree with his policies or not, Herman Cain is an authentic American who happens to be black.  He is not a hyphenated American; he is an American, period.  When I say he is an authentic American I mean that he believes in the Constitution and the values that have made this country great.  When I say authentically black, I mean both of his parents are black.

The same media knotheads, who call me a racist because I oppose the policies of Barack Obama, publicly call Herman Cain names like “token negro”, “Oreo cookie”, “bad apple”, “Uncle Tom”, “a black man who knows his place”, and accuse him of “smoking a symbolic crack pipe”, “currying white favor”, and the like- things that I would never dream of saying.  Some of these self-absorbed, pretentious “journalists” and commentators are white and some are black, but none of them have a clue what main stream America is about.

Where were these kinds of references in 2007 and 2008?  Barack Obama received an awful lot of the white votes.  Why were these kinds of comments not made when he was receiving so much support from the white community?  You didn’t hear conservatives uttering such tripe; and these same “journalists” and commentators fawned over Obama like he was a god.  Conservatives talked about Marxism and socialism running for the White House, not the “house negro”.

Why is Obama, whose mother was white, blacker than Cain, whose parents are both black?  Could it be because Cain is a conservative, the worst thing in life a “person of color” can be?  I have heard black people and white people, all of them liberals by the way, call Cain vile names that I would never call him, or any other person, regardless of the color of their skin.  Obama is of mixed race, Cain is of pure race, yet Cain is the one who is “not black enough”.  That is an interesting concept; not a sensible one, but an interesting one, none the less.

Karen Finney, a Democrat “strategist” appearing with Martin Bashir on MSNBC, said that Herman Cain is “a black man who knows his place” and therefore is acceptable to the TEA Party and makes them “feel like they are not racist because they like this guy”. Bashir’s response is “thank you for spelling that out”.

Does anyone else find this as vile and ridiculous as I find it?  Has anyone ever heard a TEA Party person make such an asinine
statement?  No, I didn’t think so.  Lloyd Marcus seems to be accepted at TEA Party events, as are any other “people of color”, who believe in liberty, justice, and the American Way.

Does anyone remember the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court hearings?   Thomas referred to the attacks on him as a high-tech lynching. It wasn’t conservative Republicans who trashed Clarence Thomas, it was liberals, Democrats, both black and white, but all of them liberals who are supposedly consumed with “racial equality”.  Thomas was ridiculed because his wife is white, not by conservatives, but by liberals.  And who could ever doubt the “Reverend” Al Sharpton when he tells us that Cain is not an “authentic black man” because he doesn’t espouse the “oh woe is me” attitude that only government can provide for success in the black community.  Cain isn’t being reviled by conservatives but by liberals.  We “conservative TEA Party racist types” accept Herman Cain but liberals don’t.  Hmmm, curious, this race question.

When a liberal calls me a racist because of my stand for freedom and against the Obama, Reid, Pelosi brand of Marxism, I count it as a compliment.  I know I am not a racist and so do they.  The key is that they know they have nothing else to stand on so they try the age-old intimidation tactic of name calling.  Well, it just doesn’t work any longer.  We, the supposed racists, have wised up, and now ignore this tactic.  We are no longer intimidated by name calling.

The true racists in the country are those telling American citizens ”of color” that they cannot accomplish anything on their own, that the only way for them to have anything is to hold their hand out to liberal white folks who know what is in their best interests.  Or they can hold their hand out to “Reverend” Al Sharpton or “Reverend” Jesse Jackson, who will go to their white liberal overseers and ask for “alms for their poor black folks”.  Just as a side note, I consider myself a “person of color” also.  As far as I know white is still a color, and actually, except for my beard, I am more beige than white.

Have you noticed that the pundits and mouthpieces for racism, black or white, seem to be doing just fine, financially, in the pundit world?  And how do the “Justice Brothers”, Al and Jesse, make their money?  Do they actually have churches they pastor or do they make their money pandering to white liberal guilt, the government, and telling black Americans that they are less than whites?  I surmise that the “Justice Brothers” make their money extorting money from anyone they can find to extort money from.  If one doesn’t give them money it must be because one is racist.  It can’t possibly be because one believes they are “race hustling poverty pimps”.

And before anyone labels me a racist on that last statement, it is a quote from J. C. Watts, a former Oklahoma Republican Congressman and quarterback at the University of Oklahoma.  He made that statement on the floor of the House of Representatives in speaking of “Reverend” Jackson.  He must also be a racist in the books of “Reverends” Al and Jesse, and apparently another “house negro telling whites what they want to hear”.

I never tell anyone they can’t make it on their own.  I never tell anyone of any color that the answer to their problems is a government hand out, that they are too stupid to succeed, or they are incapable of making a success of themselves.  Is the key to success in our nation really a government handout or is it hard work, honesty, integrity, and dedication?

Racism is alive and well in the liberal sections of society.  Conservatism says hard work and dedication will bring success, without ever bringing skin color into the mix.  Herman Cain worked his way through college.  His parents worked at least 2 jobs each when he was young so they could help their children get the education they would need to become successful in life.  They didn’t sit back and wait for Al and Jesse to bring them a handout to keep them in line and in poverty.  Cain’s parents had a vision of what it takes to succeed in life and they instilled that in their children.

Herman Cain has been successful because he understands how to be successful.  He has worked his way up to where he is today through education, dedication to values, and the willingness to apply himself to accomplish the tasks assigned by those above him in authority.  He wasn’t content to sit on his butt and wait for Al and Jesse to hand him the pittance they normally hand their dependants.  I believe the key to his success as much as anything else is his treatment of others.  He is as considerate and respectful of the doorman at a hotel as he is to a CEO of any corporation.

To say in 2011 that Herman Cain has succeeded because he is the “house negro” of the TEA Party and conservative Americans is insulting to all Americans of all colors.  It shows where racism dwells and it isn’t in conservative circles.  This treatment of Cain shows once again that “people of color” who don’t tow the liberal line will be subjected to attacks of all kinds to keep them in line.  For anyone to say that any “person of color” cannot succeed by their own initiative in today’s America is as racist as one can get.

Many Americans, including this writer, oppose Barack Obama because of his Marxist policies and his promise to “fundamentally transform America”.  We are called racists and bigots because no one can really oppose his “enlightenment”; it absolutely has to be racism.  I am not in Cain’s camp but I do respect and like the man based on his accomplishments and his vision for America.

Neither Cain nor Obama have any standing with me, for better or worse, due to the color of their skin.  My opinions of both are based entirely on their policies and their vision of the future of the nation I cherish.  I find it rather odd that the people who support Obama are not racists but those who oppose him are racists.  And those who support Herman Cain are racists but those who oppose him are not racists.  I am like the duck in the AFLAC commercial shaking my head and going, HUH?????????????????????????????

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

For the Left, Cain is Black Man Who Doesn't Know His Place

Last week on Bashir Live on MSNBC, Martin graced the airwaves with his special guest, DNC strategist (put on some makeup, earrings and get a TV gig and suddenly you’re a STRATEGIST!) Karen Finney.  Ms. Finney was there to talk about Herman Cain.  Of course! Its not like there are any other interesting and pressing issues to address, such as national debt, the Solyndra debacle or a disastrous, murderous gun running scheme perpetrated by the current administration.  Nope.  The real news is Herman Cain.  He’s Black, you see.  And a Tea Party-er.  And he’s running for President.  As a Republican.  This is NEWS, folks!  MSNBC says so because it is nearly all they ever “report” on these days.  Anyway, Finney had some pretty choice words regarding the Hermanator.  You can view the video here, but her quote is short and to the point.  On Cain, Finney says “One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy.  I think he is giving that base a free pass. And I think they like him because they think he’s a black man who knows his place. I know that’s harsh, but that’s how it sure seems to me.”

No Ms. Finney, that’s not harsh. Its racist.  Also, I think you got a little tripped up over your words.  I do believe what you meant to say is “Herman Cain is Black man who doesn’t know his place”.  You have a place for Cain, don’t you Finney?  He belongs right there on that liberal plantation with all the other good, obedient little Negros.  He should be happy with the meager offerings of welfare dependence and broken families that the Democrat party has been serving up for decades.  He should be heard from only when the left needs to insert an angry Black person into some issue or debate and Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are both busy siring children outside of their marriage or evading taxes.  Cain should be happy sitting on that porch, waiting for the next election cycle when the Democrat candidate can trot him out for a while and talk about how much the Black community needs them and why they are the only ones who care about the plight of poor Black Americans everywhere.  That’s Cain’s place in your world, isn’t it Ms. Finney?

I think people like Finney are the worst kind of racists.  They cloak their racism in garments of “activism” and “justice”.  They believe that Black people are simply incapable of thinking as separate, individual, diverse human beings.  They look at Black Americans as a herd of animals, like sheep or lemmings.  They look alike, dress alike, act alike, listen to the same music, watch the same movies and when it comes to politics think the same way.  I have no idea what race or nationality Finney claims, but it doesn’t matter.  What she said about Cain, and by extension Black Americans everywhere was reprehensible.  If this were a Republican personality making the same comments about Obama the news cycle would completely explode.  I reject the idea that her party affiliation should offer her some immunity.  Finney should be shamed and ashamed for her comments.  She should never have any credibility in the media again after such a disgusting statement.  She couldn’t have been more offensive if she had just flat out called Cain a step-n-fetch-it nigger.  The way I see it, Finney is the step-n-fetch-it, saying whatever she thinks Bashir wants to hear in order to be invited back to the show and to all the fancy liberal Winter Holiday Celebration parties coming up in the next few months.  She is selling hate, and I’m calling her on it.

Ms. Finney, did it ever occur to you that Cain actually believes what he says?  Did it occur to you that perhaps there are people out there who don’t see the color of his skin when he speaks, but judge him on the quality of his words and the content of his character?  The racism in this case is not coming from those of us on the right.  Cain has a message that resonates.  If you disagree with the message, attack the man on that.  But you can’t, because you’re a racist.  You’re a racist because when you look at Herman Cain, Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice or other Black conservatives you see the color of their skin first and foremost, and you judge them according to that pigmentation.  If that is not racism, I don’t know what is.  I’m sure Bashir and the other couple hundred MSNBC viewers were quite tickled by your song and dance the other night, but I wasn’t.  I was shocked, saddened, and disgusted.  So were many other Black conservatives, conservatives of all races for that matter.  When you’re finished your overseeing duties for the day at the liberal plantation, maybe you should go crawl into the same hole Lawrence O’Donnell makes his home in.  Or maybe I’m just being harsh.

Donald Trump Plays The Race Card So Hard He Nearly Breaks His Hand

First off, this headline is hyperbole in the sense that I assume Mr. Trump’s hand is doing just fine.  It is not, however, hyperbole in the sense of The Donald playing the race card.  Watch this video below as he says that Jon Stewart “probably should” be taken off the air for some comments that Trump believes to be racist.

 

 

 

What do you guys think?  Is The Donald’s hair piece too tight?  Or does he have a point?  For context, you can find the Jon Stewart video he’s talking about right here.

Let us know in the comments below.  Or maybe you can go by Trump’s office and tell him yourself.  It’s not like he seems to be busy or anything.
