Who's Racist?

No day passes without a Democratic politician, a left-wing commentator, or, if I may be excused a redundancy, a left-wing academic labeling Republicans and conservatives racist.

Given the power of repetition, one consequence is that many Americans, especially young ones, believe that one side of the political spectrum -- the right -- is racist.

But while I've never associated conservatives with racism, I also never used to associate liberals with racism. But I was naive in this matter. While there are liberals and leftists who are not racist, I have come to understand that many are -- considerably more than conservatives.

Here are some proofs:

First, white liberals repeatedly state that America is a racist a country, and that all whites are racist. The latter doctrine is taught at virtually every American university. The only difference among whites, liberal professors teach their students, is not that some are racist and some are not; it is that some acknowledge their racism and some do not.

But isn't that an admission that liberals are racist? When a person says, "We are all racists," isn't he saying that he is a racist?

A second proof that racism has a home on the left is the left's primary argument against requiring all citizens to show identification when they vote. The liberal-left-Democrat argument, repeated by almost every editorial page, columnist and news outlet, and by every Democrat, is that such a requirement would greatly suppress the black vote. Thus, voter ID is racist. This is said so often and with such conviction that few people ask whether it is true: Will requiring ID really suppress the black vote?

The answer, shown in study after study, is no. Therefore, people who assume that voter ID would suppress the black vote have to believe that millions of blacks are uniquely incompetent citizens. Few things in civic life are simpler than obtaining an ID, and identification is needed almost everywhere in society. One has to believe in widespread black incompetence in order to believe that obtaining an ID is too difficult for a vast number of blacks.

And is virtually every democracy in the world racist for requiring voter ID? Again, the answer is no. The idea is absurd.

So there are only two possibilities here. Either Democrats and the left make this argument for political gain -- to reinforce their hold on black voters by scaring them into believing that Republicans are racist -- or the left really believes that blacks are less competent than other groups.

It is probable that both reasons -- political opportunism and liberals' belief in black inferiority -- are at work here. Most liberals, after all, do not believe that whites -- even those who didn't graduate high school -- have any difficulty obtaining an ID, but are certain that millions of blacks find this too onerous. This insult to black intelligence is as obvious as it is ignored.

Third is the liberal and left-wing advocacy of lowering standards for blacks -- what is known as affirmative action. How is it not plain as daylight that whites (and other non-blacks) who argue for the continued lowering of standards for blacks have a low view of blacks? White liberals never advocate lowering professional or academic standards for, let us say, Asian immigrants who recently arrived in America, often without money or any knowledge of English.

Why not? Because white liberals think that Asians are bright.

Finally, there is the Democratic and liberal opposition to school vouchers that would enable many blacks parents to send their children to schools superior to the awful ones that the (liberal-run) educational establishment has provided blacks children.

Most blacks want school vouchers, but most liberals vehemently oppose them. Why? Because what is good for teachers unions is of more importance to the left than what is good for blacks.

Who, then, is racist? By their own admission, and by the policies they pursue, the answer is the people who call themselves progressive.

The black community and labor unions for that matter, put all their eggs in one basket by consistently voting democrat. I don't understand why they can't see how the democratic party just takes them for granted and just gives them lip service.

The Democratic party was racist from its pro-slavery beginning, through its anti civil rights era of creating the much hated Jim Crow discrimination laws and of course through its terrorist wing the K.K.K. which hated and persecuted Republicans, Blacks, Jews and Catholics (in that priority order) to its current day subtle racism.

LBJ saw the writing on the wall and gave up trying to keep the old share-cropping perpetual debt system of oppression going and created the "War on Poverty" as a replacement that was tailored to not only keep the Blacks voting democratic but to also convince then it was good for them despite the obvious deterioration that it caused their once strong families to endure.

Bottom line, the Democratic party has always been the home and fount of racism in this country.

If amnesty is given to the current batch of illegals since the last amnesty where does it end? The illegals/ alien/undocumented still come and are now sending their children as an advanced guard knowing that the rest of the family will be granted citizenship in the future.

The Democrats are harvesting these people as future voters knowing that they will displace union members and African American workers by undercutting their wages. Many established Hispanic members of the community have in the past protested the continuing influx of illegals because they will lower their standard of living by lowering wage rates.

At what point do all the affected members of the community realise the forthcoming issue and band to gether to say enough is enough?

The government itself has failed us, and the White Liberals who have been posing as our friends have failed us. Once we see that all these other sources to which we have turned have failed, we stop turning to them and start turning to ourselves.

You are the one who sent Kennedy to Washington. You’re the one who put the present Democratic administration in Washington, D.C. The Whites were evenly divided. It was the fact that you threw 80% of your votes behind the Democrats that put the Democrats in the White House. When you see this, you can see that the Negro vote is the key factor. And despite the fact that you are in a position to be the determining factor, what do you get out of it?

Democrats have been in Washington, D.C. only because of the Negro vote. They’ve been down there 4 years and all the legislation they wanted to bring up they brought up and got it out of the way, and now they bring up you. You put them first and they put you last, cause you are a chump (huge applause). A political chump.

In Washington, D.C. in the House of Representatives there are 257 who are Democrats. Only 177 are Republican. In the Senate there are 67 Democrats, only 33 are Republicans. The Party that you backed, controls two-thirds of the House of Representatives and the Senate and still they can’t keep their promise to you, ’cause you’re a chump.

Anytime you throw your political weight behind a political Party that controls two-thirds of the government and that Party can’t keep the promises it made to you during election time, and you are dumb enough to walk around and identify yourself with that Party, you are not only a chump but you are a traitor to your race.

So republicans re racist ha? Well here's you favorite democrat:

“I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”
—Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One -

“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”

If Johnson were alive today, and he decided unwisely to use the same terminology, then wouldn’t all of us that rely on the government be “niggers?”

White people, black people. Latinos. Just another day on the Democratic Plantation.

Is it time for us to get a little “uppity?”

People need a helping hand sometimes. But they must make sure that hand is helping them up and not holding them down.

I apologize for the N word and hope that you will know that I use it only to illustrate my point.

" It was the government's prerogative to "determine that the community should be beautiful as well as healthy, spacious as well as clean, well-balanced as well as carefully patrolled,"

Excuse me but where in the constitution does the government get that right? I believe the constitution lists what the government can do and everything else are the rights of people.
