Blacks Blind to Their Own Cultural Enslavement

Blacks Blind to Their Own Cultural Enslavement

By Erik Rush •

Considering the media firestorm surrounding actor Jussie Smollett being charged and subsequently released for perpetrating a potentially dangerous hate crime hoax, I thought it would be appropriate to weigh in with some race-related reality to give some context.

Jussie Smollett is probably too young to understand how his actions dishonored those who sacrificed in the cause of racial equality over the course of our nation’s existence. In school, I imagine he wasn’t taught anything remotely resembling reality on the subject of history, particularly in this area. Factor in Smollett having been raised in the entertainment industry from childhood, and we can see how unlikely it is that any sense of moral obligation he might have harbored could have survived.

As distasteful as it is for me, I occasionally engage in “media slumming,” this meaning that I expose myself to media that I would never watch for enjoyment in order to remain informed as to what’s going on in media venues. I don’t have broadcast television, nor do I participate in the ripoff of cable TV, but I do have streaming services through which I can glean a fairly decent representation of what’s afoot in broadcast TV.

Similar to the inescapability of superfluous homoerotica, pro-LGBTQ messages and anti-Trump snark pervading TV and films these days, the America-as-an-institutionally-racist-nation message has also taken on new life over the last couple of years. Case in point: Over just the last year, I’ve viewed more TV dramas than I can count in which characters bemoan Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and a host of other real-life black Americans being murdered by racist cops.

Such laments are abject mythology, but when one is in that passive mode of being plugged into the brainsucker box for entertainment purposes, the ensuing effects can be quite insidious.

I was having a discussion with some people on social media the other day on the topic of how the genres of hip-hop and rap debase black people, particularly black women. I offered that while I certainly concur with this assessment, it’s only a small part of the ongoing campaign of the left—and to some extent, our government—to keep blacks culturally enslaved. This is actually a theory I began developing in my teens, when I saw the music being marketed to blacks becoming less mainstream and increasingly geared toward hedonistic and narcissistic themes. Perhaps I noticed this because I’m a lifelong musician, as opposed to being remarkably intuitive.

I paused bemusedly after having employed the phrase “cultural enslavement.” I don’t know If I coined it then and there, and I don’t need the credit, but it’s bloody brilliant regardless.

Cultural enslavement is essentially what the political left has imposed upon blacks since the Civil Rights Movement. I have written previously about some of the federal government’s efforts to keep blacks on the proverbial plantation as popular sentiment around the existing racial inequities in America began to change; these included F.D.R. and Harry Truman conspiring with unions to use entitlement programs to keep black men from taking union jobs, and of course the deleterious effects entitlement programs have had on black families in general.
It’s been said that prior to the Civil Rights Movement, blacks were probably one of the most socially conservative groups in America. Occasionally, someone will point out how stable black communities and families were prior to this period, when wholesale government intervention into race-related issues and the explosion of entitlement programs took place. This is certainly accurate, despite leftists being quick to offer catty little mincing retorts in these cases: So, are you saying that blacks were better off under Jim Crow and segregation—hmm..?

I often proffer the argument that America is not an institutionally racist nation in the sense that black activists and liberals maintain it is. America is indeed an institutionally racist nation however, in the sense that since the Civil Rights Movement (which I’m using as a temporal landmark, not a cause), blacks’ identity has been dictated by liberal whites and their black lackeys, and this has been actualized largely through the entertainment industry. I went into great detail on this topic in my book, “Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal – America’s Racial Obsession.”

In short, since the late 1960s, blacks in America have learned how to behave and who to be from TV sitcoms, films and the music industry.
Of even more significance is the fact that blacks have learned from these media sources how to relate to other racial groups, and how other racial groups relate to them. The worldview they adopted as a result has been extremely disadvantageous to them, and was predicated upon the desire of influential liberals to influence how blacks relate to just about everything.

More recently, young blacks have been indoctrinated en masse into the sociopathic culture of the lowest-of-the-low in the black community: Criminals. In addition to the gratuitous use of profanity, more often than not the themes of rap and hip-hop purveyors are narcissistic in the extreme, antisocial, anti-authority, misogynistic and racist. The attitudes represented within these themes have been adopted by young blacks in the same manner in which young whites assume the attitudes of their music idols.

Unlike Mötley Cruë however, which promoted the abstract if morally ambiguous “Sex ‘n’ drugs ‘n’ Rock ‘n’ Roll” lifestyle, in their lyrics, rappers routinely showcase their disdain for authority, multiple baby mamas, dealing drugs, and killing people—even police.

The cure? As simplistic as it may sound, like so many of the threats we face from the hard left, it’s going to come down to people waking up to the reality of what’s going on. In the case of black Americans, with so many remaining mired in the orthodoxy of the left and the Democrat Party, I see this as being a particularly difficult if not an extremely unlikely proposition.

Will Jussie Smollett be Held Accountable?

Will Jussie Smollett be Held Accountable?

By Erik Rush

Hours before Jussie Smollet turned himself in to Chicago authorities, this commentary appeared in WND.

When black singer, actor and gay activist Jussie Smollett was allegedly assaulted in Chicago on Jan 29, the act was widely denounced across the political continuum. While those of more measured rhetoric called for the prosecution of those involved, many prominent leftists immediately blamed the incident on a culture of intolerance that, they say, is being advanced by President Donald Trump.
Once upon a time, those in the public eye took great care with regard to what they said in public, if only as a point of credibility. Things aren’t always as they appear, and being seen as having rushed to judgment during a media firestorm just doesn’t speak to one’s intelligence. Despite this, very few of those alleging a Trump connection to the Smollett attack exercised such restraint; histrionics ruled the day once this story broke.

Now, when the Jussie Smollett story did break, there were some who considered the possibility that the attack had been staged, either by leftist operatives or by Smollett himself, in order to lend credence to the threadbare claim that America is an institutionally racist nation, and that having elected a bigot like Trump proved this. Very few who courted this idea articulated their hypotheses, and those who did were rather low key about it.

Why would anyone think that Smollett or the politically-kindred might stage such an attack, particularly considering the prevailing sensitivities in America around issues of race and intolerance in general? Because given the left’s track record, this is precisely the sort of craven, deceitful act that is in keeping with their sinister character.

As many are now aware, the Smollett story began to unravel over the weekend when the news of Chicago police examining new evidence connected to the alleged assault came to the fore. It quickly became evident—unless we have a really elaborate conspiracy within a conspiracy here—that Jussie Smollett himself paid two extras from his Fox TV show “Empire” to carry out the “attack,” expressly to gin up racial tensions attendant to the current campaign against the president and his supporters.

So let’s say we acknowledge that Smollett is an individual of low character simply because he’s a dedicated lefty. Why would someone who’s secured an enviable position in such a competitive industry court the ignominy of having been beaten up on the street, as well as being condemned as a hate crime hoaxer should his perfidy be discovered?

Let not those of us who condemn the left for their summary and cavalier appraisal of others (particularly us) fall short in our understanding of what makes them tick.

Once again, we must look to character. Jussie Smollett has been in the entertainment business since he was ten years old, acting in many films such as “The Mighty Ducks” and Rob Reiner’s “North.” As I have attested from personal experience, those who become ensconced in that insular entertainment industry bubble from an early age often become singularly scary people. The tragic lives and deaths of many once-popular child stars stands as testimony to this fact. Those who survive can become even scarier with regard to their worldview and perceptions of themselves.

Thus, it isn’t too difficult to see how a popular but perhaps deeply insecure young actor might choose two aspects of his public persona—his ethnicity and his sexual orientation—and qualify them in such a manner as to engender public sympathy. Further, to do so in a way that would advance a favored political agenda.

In support of this argument, it is now being reported by news sources in Chicago that Smollett’s motivation for staging the January 29 “attack” may have been the failure of an earlier staged incident to gain the desired media traction. Apparently (according to CBS 2 Chicago), a letter containing a white powder of some sort addressed to Smollett was delivered to a Chicago set where “Empire” was filming just days before the January 29 staged assault.

At this point, even some of the prominent lefties who supported Smollett have articulated their disgust with his alleged actions, and I applaud them for this. There are good reasons why our nation holds certain sensitivities around race, and it’s because many good people have sacrificed over many years to improve race relations and conditions for the once-disenfranchised. A spoiled, middle-class puke like Smollett wouldn’t be aware of this, partly because he wasn’t around at that time, and because accurate representations of our history are no longer taught in schools.

Smollett has now “lawyered-up,” expressing the requisite outrage and mortification through his attorneys and pointing to his further victimization via accusations that he orchestrated the assault.
An attack such as the one Smollett claimed had been perpetrated upon him is a serious crime which carries heavy penalties. Fraudulently reporting such a crime is also a criminal offense, with very good reason. The potential for dangerous escalation in the wake of such charges is very real.

It has become abundantly clear in recent years that laws, rules and ethics hold no sway over those on the left. Those quaint conventions are for the “little people,” not them. This of course would provide further motivation for Smollett having staged the January 29 incident, but it also gives rise to the question of whether or not he will be held accountable in any manner if he is indeed found to be culpable.

While the Chicago authorities and the FBI are said to be investigating the “white powder” letter and the January 29 attack, there’s no telling whether or not these will lead to a just disposition. In the meantime, the producers of “Empire” and the network (Fox Broadcasting) announced this week that they intend to keep Smollett on as a series regular.

Harvey, the Left, and ‘Environmental Racism’

Harvey, the Left, and ‘Environmental Racism’

By Erik Rush •

As surely as the thunderclap follows a flash of lightning, it was inevitable that the inescapable human misery brought about by Hurricane Harvey would result in further baseless accusations of racism on the part of those on the left against President Donald Trump, as well as allegations of institutional racism as a pervasive influence in America. At present, it may be too early to tell how far this could go, but there’s every indication that the option of a full-blown defamation campaign is still on the table.

Why might one anticipate such an outcome? As I articulated last week, leftists have demonstrated that they are determined to associate alleged racism with just about anything they can, particularly if it will aid them in characterizing President Trump as a racist. On August 25, the Daily Kos suggested that the hurricane itself might be racist, since it was “poised to disproportionately impact blacks in Texas,” and that the story was somehow being covered up. Apparently, President Trump’s failure to expeditiously fill leadership vacancies at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) and the Department of Homeland Security (which oversees FEMA and the Coast Guard) is also part of this conspiracy.

Another conspiracy: Citing the catch phrase “environmental racism” several times, the Huffington Post said on Tuesday that flooding in Houston typically “hits poor, nonwhite neighborhoods hardest” because nonwhite residents have been deliberately crowded into neighborhoods that are most likely to flood. Who knew?
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), who represents Texas’ predominantly black 18th District, is a caricature of the black Democrat politician and has seldom missed an opportunity to decry institutional racism where there’s been no indication of such a problem.

In 2011, Lee claimed that Republican members of Congress were making it difficult for President Obama to raise the debt ceiling because of his race. Earlier this year, she demanded that Congress to call for federal civil rights investigations into the hanging of bananas from nooses at American University in Washington, which civil rights activists associated with a black woman having ascended to the position of student body president for the first time in that school’s history.

As we know, several similar occurrences in the recent past were ultimately attributed to leftist agitators rather than white racists.

Early this week, as a downgraded Hurricane Harvey stalled off of the Texas coast after making landfall over the weekend, Rep. Lee urged President Trump to declare a state of disaster ahead of the storm This was admittedly somewhat alarmist at that point in time, but obviously doesn’t rise to the level of race-baiting. On Friday, Lee’s office said that it was “too early to draw conclusions on the President’s response” to the hurricane (which had yet to make landfall at that time), suggesting that the congresswoman was anticipating Trump’s response to the storm with a jaded eye.

It may appear cynical on my part, but it would not take too much misfortune coming the way of black Houston dwellers (or any blacks in the hurricane’s path) for Rep. Lee or other prominent liberals to mobilize the activist community in the cause of blaming President Trump for said misfortune.

This very thing occurred in August of 2005 when Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans. In that instance, the state and the local government under black New Orleans mayor Clarence Ray Nagin, Jr. dismally failed that city’s residents, but the blame for black denizens’ suffering was placed squarely on the shoulders of President George W. Bush. Black activists, liberal politicians, and celebrities came out in force to accuse Bush of everything from delaying aid to the city to having employed black ops technology to generate the killer hurricane in the first place.
Two days ago, eight members of President Donald Trump’s National Infrastructure Advisory Council (NIAC) resigned, ostensibly over his response to recent race-related incidents in Charlottesville, Virginia. This was a pretext, of course, in the ongoing drive on the part of Washington establishment types to characterize the president as a racist.

“When asked about the horrific violence in Charlottesville, you failed to denounce the intolerance and violence of hate groups, instead offering false equivalences and attacking the motives of the CEOs who had resigned from their advisory roles in protest,” the council members said in a resignation letter to Trump.

The quoted statement was an out-and-out falsehood – as have all statements been thus far in this calumnious campaign. Following the Charlottesville incidents, Trump did in fact denounce the actions of demonstrators in the strongest terms.

Last week, I also said that since white nationalists possess a miniscule amount of political clout in America compared to the political left, it is folly to consider them a serious threat, particularly since it is the latter who’ve been calculatedly compromising Americans’ liberties. From their proclivity to employ Orwellian levels of propaganda and social engineering, to rewriting history (in their campaigns to remove Confederate monuments from public display, for example), to their penchant for violence, they are clearly the ones embracing deceit, terror, and tyranny.

The dangerous irony here is that those on the left, from progressives to hard-line radicals, have been exploiting their First Amendment liberties in order to neutralize those very liberties as regards their fellow Americans. I have repeatedly cited this fact as justification for disregarding these liberties where it applies to the left – if not concerning policy, at least in principle.

So, how might a political party, an administration, or a voting bloc go about politically disenfranchising the left? That’s the question every right-of-center individual in America ought to be giving the deepest consideration at this juncture.

Police Shootings, White Privilege and the Intentional Destruction of the Black Community

Police Shootings, White Privilege and the Intentional Destruction of the Black Community

By David Risselada

Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby was recently found not guilty in the shooting death of Terrence Crutcher. The shooting represented another in a long line of national incidents where an unarmed black man was shot and killed by a white police officer. In many instances these shootings lead to cries of racism and wide spread violence by protest groups like Black Lives Matter. Luckily for the residents of Tulsa these type of protests never gain any real momentum. It seems that the shooting of Crutcher was justified in the sense that he was acting in an erratic and non-compliant manner. He had a known history of drug abuse as well as a criminal record. While this does not justify the immediate shooting of the man there are some hard questions that are not being asked and in order to ever find true justice they must be explored. One of these questions is of course, who is to blame for his death? The left will continue to blame the so called institutional racism of the United States and it’s institutions as the cause of all these unfortunate events. Sadly, the truth is far different and the blood of Terrence Crutcher as well as other innocent people actually falls on the hands of the liberal left.

For decades now the left has pushed the destructive narrative that blacks in America are oppressed and white people live privileged lives. Academic theories such as Black Liberation Theology, Critical Race Theory and White Privilege education have diluted the minds of American students by teaching them that the system they live in is inherently racist and designed only to benefit the selfish, greedy interests of white men. Blacks are taught that they are incapable of racism because they have no institutional power. In other words, because the institutions of power are allegedly controlled by whites, blacks have no power to discriminate against others. The purpose of these educational theories is to create a counter-hegemony against the dominant social group and it is communist in origin. Italian communist Antonio Gramsci devised the theory of counter-hegemony because he realized that Marx’s idea of an armed struggle between the economic classes didn’t materialize. Gramsci instead posited the idea that different groups of oppressed people could be created on the basis of gender, criminal status and race. These groups could then be used and pitted against the dominant culture to create a revolutionary mind set.

It has worked perfectly, our nation is now divided with so many different social groups claiming to be oppressed by “white privilege.” In truth however, these people are only being used and it is leading to their own destruction. The idea that blacks are oppressed and the teaching of such nonsense like white privilege has led to a movement based purely on hatred and resentment. The constant rhetoric and demonization of police by former President Barack Hussein Obama led to an all out war on cops where blacks were ambushing and killing police officers for no reason other than being told they are oppressed victims. This war on cops surely contributed to the fear and knee jerk reactions of officer Betty Shelby when she was facing down a non-compliant man who was in fact, acting in an erratic manner and reaching back into his car.

Ever since the creation of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society programs black people in America have been oppressed. They have been tricked into believing that the government will provide for them through welfare. The results were the destruction of the black family, generational poverty and government dependence. This was done on purpose in order to be able to carry out Gramsci’s plan of counter-hegemony. Anyone who truly understands history knows that Republicans have traditionally voted for civil rights for blacks and Democrats have opposed them. The KKK was the terrorist arm of the Democrat party and it was Democrats who opposed the eradication of slavery. Blacks in America were at one time just as successful and integrated into American society as whites and in many cases had stronger, more successful family lives. This all changed with Johnson’s Great Society welfare programs. This was the creation of the perfect revolutionary army to bring about socialism in America.

Manning R. Johnson, author of the book Color, Communism and Common Sense was a black member of the Communist Party USA. He was highly trained in subversive techniques and worked his way as high as being a member of the Politburo. He defected from the Communist Party when realizing the black community in America was being used to carry out a communist agenda. He writes in the book that the grievances of the black community such as slavery and discrimination, were to be exploited and used as a weapon against the capitalist system to bring about socialism.

“Little did I realize until I was deeply enmeshed in the Red Conspiracy, that just and seeming grievances are exploited to transform idealism into a cold and ruthless weapon against the capitalist system — that this is the end toward which all the communist
efforts among Negroes are directed.”

 
In short, the impoverished state of many black Americans can be traced back to early roots of America’s communist movement. They have been exploited and used by those who have taught them they are systematically oppressed by the white man, namely the Democratic party. They have been organized into an effective voting machine where they continually vote the same racist party into power on the promise of welfare and other benefits. The conditions of their communities never change; in fact they worsen, this is then used to further the argument for socialist solutions. Black youths are being indoctrinated into an ideology of hatred and society destroys their futures by justifying acts of violence based on the false precepts of White Privilege and Black Liberation Theology.
The shooting of Terrence Crutcher was surely a tragedy, one that happens all too often in this country. Again, the question arises. Who’s really to blame? Surely police have a responsibility to their communities to exercise their training in a responsible manner and in some cases, they should show a little more restraint in the name of preserving life. On the other hand, the evidence strongly suggests that the black community has been used to create a revolutionary fervor which has done nothing but create mistrust and fear among police. With all of the attacks against police perpetrated by groups like Black Lives Matter what do you think was going through Betty Shelby’s head? Police nor citizens should be fearful of each other; however, because of the efforts of the liberal left our nation is now made up of groups who are motivated by a burning hatred based on lies told intended to create chaos.

‘Fundamental Transformation’ Was Fundamentally Evil

‘Fundamental Transformation’ Was Fundamentally Evil

By Erik Rush

While substituting for radio talk-show host Glenn Beck last week, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, Sheriff David Clarke pointed to the manifestly unsuitable presidential candidate that was Barack Hussein Obama in 2008 and compared the reaction of Obama detractors to his election with leftists’ response to the recent election of real estate mogul and media personality Donald Trump to the presidency.

Despite deep concerns many had over Obama’s political deficiencies in 2008, Clarke noted that when Obama won the presidency, his political opponents did not claim that Obama had somehow stolen the election. They did not whine about shadowy foreign groups having helped him win, even though a very compelling case could be made that this did in fact occur through the influence of certain Saudi agencies at particular stages of his career. They did not protest in the streets. They did not produce fearmongering public service announcements asking Democratic electors to flip their votes or refuse to certify Obama’s victory. They did not appear on television and radio news and talk shows presenting entirely baseless, utterly preposterous charges against the new president-elect, though the truth about his lack of fitness to hold any high office would have horrified a preponderance of the voting public had they been aware of it.

For my part, I don’t recall any of that occurring either, nor do I remember Obama supporters being beaten at rallies by supporters of John McCain in 2008, or college freshmen being driven out of school by bullying over their support for Obama, (as was Bryn Mawr College student Andi Moritz over her support for Donald Trump).

In the case of Trump’s recent election, Sheriff Clarke opined, leftists engaged in each and every one of these craven acts. As most readers know, Sheriff Clarke is a black man; while this ought not matter in terms of his articulating the truth, it is significant in light of the fact that most black Americans have been so brainwashed by progressives that their cognitive processes with regard to political, social and cultural issues often suggest a sort of mental retardation.

Also last week, a few conservative pundits commented on recent remarks made by another black American, our outgoing abysmal excuse for a first lady, Michelle Obama. Addressing Trump’s impending presidency and her perception of our nation without her husband at the helm, Mrs. Obama’s statements came off as boilerplate sour grapes on the part of a racialist who is incapable of admitting that conditions are appreciably better for blacks today than they were in 1955.

The woman who once said that she’d felt no pride in being an American until her husband was nominated for president is singing the same song again now that her gravy train ride is about over, whining about blacks’ ongoing struggle against alleged institutional racism. This despite her family having lived lives that few Americans of any color ever get to live.

The fact is that “enough” is never enough for those on the left. This mental modality has been imparted to nearly everyone in that region of the political continuum, even those who do not understand the stratagem behind their socialist overlords having employed it.

For example, nearly all of the black Americans who still vote for Democrats in the 90 percents, from celebrities to welfare queens, hold to Michelle Obama’s viewpoint to varying degrees. At this juncture, one could gift each and every black American with $1 billion, tax-free (due reparation, some would surely argue), and they would continue citing their alleged oppression. Partying in rarified venues with rap stars and other liberal billionaires, they would claim that their lot in life could be just a little bit better if not for the pernicious institutional racism that still exists in America.

So what’s the beef? It’s obviously not about money. Despite being ostensible haters of capitalism, leftists are among the most money-grubbing individuals on the planet – but if it were truly about money, their vociferousness would abate once they’d achieved material success. If it were about money, Bill and Hillary Clinton, former Vice-President Al Gore and even billionaire currency manipulator and former Nazi collaborator George Soros would have ceased whining once their own economic security was assured.

But they never do …

So it’s not money they really crave – it’s power. The profoundly narcissistic concept that their worldview is superior to all others and that they have the right to impose it upon everyone else has very little to do with any intellectual appraisal of socialism; in the absence of such a system, they would have gravitated to some other political philosophy, probably equally as odious, and attempted to impose that one upon the populace. Even many rank-and-file liberals subscribe to socialism’s unethical and intrusive doctrines because of the power they envision sharing, and we’ve seen them revel in components thereof that have been implemented to one degree or another: telling their fellow citizens that they may no longer speak or worship freely, own guns, smoke tobacco, or consume what their leaders have deemed is too much sugar for one’s own good.

The desire to ruthlessly wield such power not only runs counter to the long-established law of our land (namely, the Constitution), it is a pursuit that bespeaks a character that is fundamentally evil.

Moving forward in the spirit of America’s rage against the socialist political machine (which led to Donald Trump’s election), I will continue to point out that having set us on this path is not a First Amendment right to which liberals and socialists are entitled. It is amoral, and it is treason. This must first become recognition on a popular level, and finally, conventional wisdom.

Democrats’ Legacy of Hatred and Death

Democrats’ Legacy of Hatred and Death

Appearing on Fox News on Monday, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke excoriated speakers at the Democratic National Convention, contending that the party is “embracing criminality.” While it is certainly gratifying to hear a champion of law and order (Clarke even asserted that Hillary Clinton is a “confirmed liar” who left people to die in Benghazi and who should have been criminally indicted) speak the truth, it is even more gratifying to see the play that other anti-Hillary media is getting, and the distaste members of her own party have evidenced for the first woman nominated to run for President.

“Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” the 2015 New York Times bestselling book by Peter Schweizer and subsequent documentary film of the same name, as well as “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party,” the documentary by filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza are evidently being read and seen by many outside the sphere of conservative news junkies. Hillary Clinton has been heckled, booed, protested, and recommended for incarceration by other Democrats; even the Turner Broadcasting System (TBS) cable network recently had to issue an apology for comparing Ms. Clinton to a laughing hyena.

There’s little doubt that some of this has to do with the recent revelation by Wikileaks of the Democratic National Committee’s sabotage of candidate Bernie Sanders in his bid for the Democratic nomination, but inasmuch as it has become clear to many Republican voters that their party’s leadership is abetting hard-line socialists among Beltway Democrats, it appears to have become clear to many Democrats that the antics of those Democrats are destroying our nation.
Which brings us back to the criminality cited by Sheriff Clarke. While Hillary Clinton may epitomize the nefarious behavior that the Democratic Party has come to embody – lying, cheating, stealing, and occasionally even killing – she is by no means the only one who can be held up as guilty.

Last Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) – who by virtue of being a Muslim, ought not have been permitted to run for any public office – said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was “the worst Republican nominee since George Wallace.” Wallace, actually a Southern Democrat, sought that party’s nomination for President in 1964, 1972, and 1976. Though Ellison was corrected by Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) who was also on the show, this was no error on Ellison’s part; it was just one of the countless millions of lies proffered by Democrats to characterize Republicans as racist.

Earlier this week, Democratic member of the House Armed Services Committee Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) compared Jewish Israeli settlers to termites while speaking at an event sponsored by an anti-Israel organization. While this is certainly in keeping with the Islamist Obama administration’s deportment toward Israel, it evidences the racism which Democrats habitually attempt to project onto their Republican and conservative counterparts. It is also noteworthy if highly ironic that Rep. Johnson, who voiced fears several years ago that the island of Guam might tip over and capsize if too many people came to reside there, happens to be black.

The Congressional Black Caucus has repeatedly and shamelessly celebrated the murderous Castro regime in Cuba, and even black Democrats such as Barack Hussein Obama lionized the late Sen. Robert Byrd, once a high-ranking member of the Ku Klux Klan.

I could go on ad infinitum…

While at this point the Democrats’ more outrageous lies, hypocrisy, and racism will only be embraced by certified mouth-breathing troglodytes, unfortunately there exists a substantial number of these shambling, braying creatures in any population, our electorate included.

“’Hillary’s America’ covers key historical events whitewashed from the revisionist American history taught in schools. Moviegoers witness the brutal displacement of the Seminoles by then General Andrew Jackson, the viewing of virulently racist Birth of a Nation in the Wilson White House, the direct connection between the Ku Klux Klan and the Democratic Party, the Republican Party as the party of the abolitionists, the connection of eugenicist Margaret Sanger and the Nazis and Planned Parenthood, and Lyndon Baines Johnson’s intrinsic racism.”
BarbWire.com

As detailed in “Hillary’s America” (and as most readers of this column already know), the Democrat party stood for slavery and segregation, both of which resulted in the deaths of untold numbers of blacks. The party currently stands for unfettered abortion, which has led to tens of millions of deaths, an inordinate number of them among blacks. Under the pretext of public safety, the party supports firearms laws that put innumerable Americans at the mercy of the criminal element. Finally, the Democratic Party supports policies which have led to the deaths of American service personnel through politically-correct rules of engagement, and American citizens as millions of illegal immigrants and now militant Muslims have been deposited within our borders as though our nation was a soon-to-be decommissioned latrine.

Why has the Democratic Party cultivated this legacy of death and historically attracted racists, eugenicists, genocidal maniacs, and warmongers? I have no answer to that question, but I do know this: The Democratic Party has now been entirely co-opted by those dedicated to completely dismantling both our system of government and the rule of law. With regard to the First Amendment protections behind which these swine have cowered for so long, I defer to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s defense of his call for moratoria on Muslim immigration; this being that the Constitution does not grant America “the right to commit suicide.”

Race-baiting: From the Slime to the Ridiculous

Race-baiting: From the Slime to the Ridiculous

The blowback from two recent grand jury decisions exonerating white police officers in separate cases wherein their use of force resulted in the deaths of black individuals has taken on a decidedly surreal tone. While to an extent we have grown to expect provocateurs like Rev. Al Sharpton and his ilk squeezing as much face time out of anything even remotely controversial in vein of race, the willingness of uninvolved (and often wholly uninformed) Americans in jumping on the bandwagon in this dark travesty is discouraging, to say the least.

Some have engaged in asinine, shallow displays of solidarity, such as the hands-up gesture on the part of five players on the St. Louis Rams football team, Singer Garth Brooks canceling a Thanksgiving appearance on NBC’s “Tonight Show” and Columbia Law School allowing students to postpone final exams due to “trauma” attendant to the grand jury decisions. Now, we also have the burgeoning “I can’t breathe” campaign, memorializing Eric Garner, who died after being placed in a chokehold by a New York City Police officer.

While some may argue that these gestures were harmless, they are indicative of a complete lack of critical analysis. Like the Ferguson rioters themselves, most of these people came to their erroneous conclusions despite the clear-cut nature of the Wilson-Brown case.

Some reactions were less harmless. Last Wednesday, student protesters at East High School in Denver, Colorado – ostensibly demonstrating in solidarity with the Ferguson crowd – actually cheered as a police officer on a bicycle was hit by a car and dragged underneath the vehicle.

As I’ve been saying for many weeks, agitators, operators, and politicos have been setting the stage for this tragic comedy since August. Activists and community organizers so vigorously advanced the idea that Michael Brown had been murdered by Darren Wilson that they have been able to parlay the incident – and subsequently the Eric Garner case – into a nationwide call to action against America’s institutionally racist police. Their rhetoric has been deliberately inflammatory, whether on the part of Brown’s stepfather, Louis Head, who admonished Ferguson rioters to “Burn this bi–h down,” or Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who said prior to the Ferguson grand jury announcement that if the demands of protesters for the indictment of Darren Wilson were not met, “we’ll tear this g–dd–n country up!”

We cannot discount the influence of the press in this matter, however. They have not only been instrumental in shaping the flawed worldview of so many Americans, but were instrumental in validating the sentiments of those who wished to make the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner into hate crimes.

Pre-election Race-baiting Harbinger of Things to Come

Pre-election Race-baiting Harbinger of Things to Come

In the weeks preceding the midterm election, there was a marked uptick in the America-as-racist narrative the political left loves so well. I’m sure that the impetus for these calumnies was the collective desperation being experienced at the time by members of the Democratic Party in positions both high and low; indeed, they knew of Americans’ dissatisfaction with the Obama administration, Democrats and their policies – but that was by no means the only reason for the despicable rhetoric.

I’m talking about contingencies here, and the contingency in this case was to set the stage for blaming any Democrat electoral losses on racism and to ostensibly justify their subsequent political machinations.

As I mentioned in an earlier column, Ferguson, Missouri, where black teen Michael Brown was shot and killed by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, is and will continue to be used by the administration and its surrogates to foment racial antipathy.

The shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman in February of 2012 and the ensuing trial helped the government (through Obama’s black nationalist attorney general, Eric Holder, who used taxpayer dollars to subsidize anti-Zimmerman protests during the jury deliberation phase) set the stage for this ongoing narrative of prevalent institutional racism in America, this itself being but one of many fronts upon which the administration has manifested its assault on America at large.

To date, evidence in the grand jury investigation into the actions of Officer Darren Wilson indicates that Michael Brown was a thug wannabe who robbed a store, then assaulted a police officer (Wilson) minutes later and got ventilated for his trouble. Despite this – and the evidence that this was the case even prior to the grand jury being impaneled – those inured to the racial orthodoxy of the left came to the summary conclusion that Brown’s death was a murder based in race hatred. Obama dispatched Holder to Ferguson; his operatives have continued to keep racial tensions simmering to this day.

On Monday, while appearing on a cable news channel with a predominantly black audience, first lady Michelle Obama asserted that black Americans should vote a straight Democratic ticket this week because this would best serve their communities. In typical peremptory liberal-elite fashion – and with that renowned contempt for blacks’ intelligence – she even went as far as to say that who a candidate is, what they’ve said, or what they stand for “shouldn’t even come into the equation.”

Ferguson Still a Ticking Time Bomb

ferguson_riots1Apparently, the news cycle is a harsh mistress. Nevertheless, this is a time when we need to be cognizant of devious manipulations that are taking place with regard to the news cycle and political influence thereupon, as well as key stories that have the potential to affect the day-to-day lives of Americans on an ever-increasing basis.

Like the “humanitarian crisis” that was precipitated by the flood if illegal immigrant minors on our border with Mexico, for example. Set aside the fact that it was wholly orchestrated by the White House; the press has been happy to set aside the story in favor of more timely issues. The fact is however, that the “unaccompanied minors” are still coming, and the effects of the phenomenon are more far-reaching than we are being told.

As is apparent, the story of the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, has fallen off of the press radar to a large extent as well. Brown is the black 18 year-old who was shot and killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson on August 9. Despite overwhelming evidence initially available that Brown was a thug wannabe who likely precipitated the unfortunate events leading to his death, the fact that he was black and Wilson was white made the shooting a “murder by default” in the eyes of liberals and much of the black community in Ferguson who, like many blacks in America, are positively inured in the prevailing leftist racial orthodoxy.

The shooting gave rise to weeks of protests, riots, and exploitation by the melanin pimps of record, most notably Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Black Ferguson residents called for the arrest of Wilson on the charge of murder.

Inasmuch as charging someone with murder generally requires actual evidence, following much political pressure, the state impaneled a grand jury to determine whether Wilson’s actions merited criminal charges.

Like the “unaccompanied minor” immigrant crisis that hasn’t gone away, neither have the protesters in Ferguson. They’re still calling for the arrest of Darren Wilson, but they’re going to have to wait awhile before determining their next move. This week, it was announced that the grand jury investigation has been extended until January 7, 2015.
