A white presidential candidate presenting the same abysmal credentials and background as Barack Obama would not be President of the United States. Nevertheless, liberals claim white America is racist.
A few decades ago, anyone coming upon the American political scene spouting the Marxist philosophies of Barack Obama, would be branded a fringe Kook. His message that all money, income, wealth, and property, rightfully belong to government, would have been summarily rejected. Likewise, his insistence of redistribution would swiftly have been repudiated. A community organizing presidential candidate espousing the ludicrous claim that anyone who earns or accumulates more than their “fair share” in America, must have done so through nefarious, illegal means, would have been viewed with contempt.
More people voted for Barack Obama than against him because of his race. This presidential election will be no different. However, his progressive standard-bearers, the leftwing Democrats and their Mainstream Media, brand anyone a racist for holding him accountable in any way for his anti-American, anti-capitalism, anti-free enterprise policies.
At the same time, they screech uncontrollably when black conservatives point out that poor blacks and whites are victims of government, not beneficiaries. Black conservatives are branded as “traitors to their race” and guilty of a sin that is completely unacceptable to all liberals; acting white.
Racist gyrations by progressives have long been their most oppressive weapon in clubbing conservatives into submission and keeping them cowering in fear.
Democrats spent generations trying desperately to make blacks forget that Republicans were the party of abolition. The Democratic Party was the party of the Klan and fought fiercely against nearly all civil rights’ legislation. They’ve since used taxpayers’ money for bribery and Republicans as scapegoats for their own absolution and to pay recompense and reparations. Liberals’ misguided and shameful drive for atonement and satiation of their white guilt, culminated in trillions of dollars in national debt.
Democrats became supportive of civil rights not to be on the right side of history or justice, but to be on the winning side of politics. Their present-day racial machinations are geared toward growing and cultivating the permanent welfare class and maintaining one of their most loyal voting blocs. They use the same fraud on poor whites except they’re indoctrinated with class warfare. Obama uses every tool in his vast Marxist platform to keep poor and middleclass Americans – both black and white – bowing to the federal government. His every policy further dooms them to a life of hopelessness.
Liberals’ use of slavery as a crutch in America today does nothing but continues enslavement. Not until our country discards the crutches will the country learn to walk together. Race hustlers and leftist politicians must continually pummel the wounds and stoke resentment to remind everyone of how much they care. They show their caring by throwing trillions of taxpayer dollars into their “atonement for past sins pot.”
We need look no further than Democrat-controlled inner cities, poor regions of Appalachia, and American Indian reservations, to see the deadly “byproducts of progressive government gone mad.”
They introduced slavery and subjugation of a different nature, “the gentile (sic) but deadly bondage of government enslavement.”
Obviously, deep-seated racial hatred and rage fuel the overt, blatant racism of the Klan and Black Panther Party. However, the covert race hustling of Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton, are all branches of the same racist tree. White-guilt liberalism, the mainstream media, and the oppressive forces of political correctness provide continual nourishment.
When this “Welfare and Food Stamp President,” says Republicans are being obstructionists to his plans, he means the Republican-controlled House is thwarting his drive at completely socializing this country. It also means Republicans are attempting to create an atmosphere of freedom whereby Americans of all races can set upon a path of prosperity that will free them from the shackles of federal management.
Barack Obama and his progressives crush the breath of freedom and the soul of hope from the American dream, and a near-lifeless nation suffocates in “fruitless bondage.” We are all victims of the massive, oppressive federal tyranny, but minorities are nearly always the foremost losers of liberty because they place their faith in untrustworthy politicians and are accepting of their false promises.
Obama’s message of hope was no message of hope at all; it was a message of deceit and misery that left people wallowing in economic desperation. His promise of being the great uniter turned into a deliberate, brutal campaign of class warfare and race baiting. His declaration of a new day, and a new way in Washington was really a declaration of all-out war on liberty, on the states, and on our foundation of freedom; the Constitution.
These are the lethal legacies from radical leftist extremists. They created generations of political and cultural dependency. The last chains of oppression will fall at the feet of the oppressed when government takes its proper place and removes its patronizing, paternalistic hand from the heads of all Americans. It’s not just an issue of race; it’s an issue of freedom and dignity for all Americans.
Straight from the “mouth, who roared,” the mentally unarmed Joe Biden spewed the perfect Democratic Party racial rant while speaking to a black audience. “Republicans are going to put y’all back in chains.”
Caught with his Teleprompters down in a 2007 video, Barack Obama whipped up race hatred and fear. With his personal friend and spiritual advisor, radical-Reverend Jeremiah Wright in attendance, he told an audience of black preachers that the U.S. government didn’t care about black people. He said the government failed to waive the Stafford Act, which requires communities receiving federal disaster relief to contribute 10 percent of what the federal government contributes.
According to Thomas Sowell, “Less than two weeks earlier, on May 24, 2007, the United States Senate had in fact voted 80-14 to waive the Stafford Act requirement for New Orleans, as it had waived that requirement for New York and Florida. Obama was one of just 14 Senators who voted against — repeat, AGAINST — the legislation which included the waiver.” Doctor Sowell further stated, “More federal money was spent rebuilding New Orleans than was spent in New York after 9/11 and in Florida after hurricane Andrew, combined.”
This was just one of the countless Obama attempts to divide a nation by race, gender, class, and national origin.
Al Gore, speaking to a predominantly African-American audience, told them that, “Republicans have the wrong agenda for African- Americans — they don’t even want to count you in the census.”
When the schoolyard bullies of the mainstream media peddle their racial hatred, they’re just part of a fringe group of wannabe intellectuals trying to pump up their dwindling followers. When top Democrats spend billions of dollars and untold decades whipping up their special brew of division and loathing, there is a problem with the Democratic Party.
However, when a black President of the United States, elected in a country with a supermajority of white voters uses his race as a battering ram to attack those same voters, it’s a national disgrace. This despicable President uses a vicious, well-planned, race-hustling political game designed to garner votes by dividing the country’s races.
At very best, Barack Obama and his group of radicals are racial demagogues; at worst, they are the very racists they purport others to be. Another four years of this President and his Democratic Party will produce a country set asunder by racial and class disharmony. It will also be four more years of involuntary servitude for all Americans.
