Democrats: An Illegitimate Party
Saturday, August 18, 2012
While Republicans strain themselves to stay focused on the issues that matter most to Americans, Democrats and their allies in the press remain committed to political distractions – most often delivered through outlandish and disingenuous political comments and their corresponding media analysis.
This week, after Vice President Joe Biden informed black voters of what Democrats try to convince them of every election season – that it is a Republican wet-dream to see black people “back in chains” – Mitt Romney responded by advising President Obama to “take [his] campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago.”
MSNBC commentator Touré actually took exception to Romney’s instruction, calling it the “niggerization” of the campaign season, a way of relaying to the public-at-large, “You are not one of us, you are like the scary black man who we’ve been trained to fear.”
How does this liberal “intellectual” reach such a conclusion?
“You notice he said anger twice,” Touré explained. “[Romney’s] really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. This is part of the playbook against Obama. The ‘otherization.’ He’s not like us.” The progressive sage continued, “This is typical Republican playbook…This is not [just] my view. This has been laid out by many, many scholars.”
When Touré refers to “scholars,” he really means, “my college professors.”
The Speech Police
While this sort of rhetoric serves to distract from honest policy discussions, it’s also demonstrative of what Democrats truly believe, and how they’ve learned to achieve political victories – mainly by evading debate, and getting people to subscribe to their asinine political theories regarding Republicans.
This is hardly the first time Americans have been warned of the shadowy purpose of otherwise everyday terms.
In 2008, liberals everywhere considered it a back-handed racist remark to refer to then-candidate Barack Obama as “articulate.” And liberals were aghast when Newt Gingrich called Obama the “best food stamp president in American history.” This included Jimmy Carter, who referred to Gingrich’s remarks as the “subtlety of racism.” In the spring of 2012, MoveOn.org launched a campaign aimed at “stamp[ing] out” the word “illegal” whenever it is to be used in the context of immigration. According to Democrats, the “I-word” is akin to a “slur” and a “hate crime” – and, of course, that “it’s racially charged.”
Also included in the list of terms that Democrats consider to be red flags of racist intent are “welfare,” “professor,” “war on drugs,” “urban,” and “Willie Horton.” There are more.
If there’s any truth to Touré’s claim – that “the GOP has been working with racial codes going back to Reagan” – then perhaps it’s due to the fact that Democrats, in their half-headed quest to control political dialogue, have always ruthlessly regulated what people have been allowed to say.
And if MSNBC liberals are so concerned with the advancement of the stereotype of “the angry black man,” perhaps it wasn’t the best move to offer Al Sharpton his own show on their network.
The Democratic Game
Conservatives are racist, cruel, extreme, and prone to violence. Democrats just know it. And one of these days, they’re somehow going to prove it.
Until then, we’ll have to tolerate all of their politically correct assertions – that “Mitt Romney is the whitest white man to run for president in recent memory,” and that is “the one quality that has subtly fueled his candidacy thus far and could well put him over the top in the fall;” that getting booed by the NAACP was, in fact, a “calculated move” aimed at energizing Romney’s “racist base;” that Romney is artfully “speaking to a segment of the population who does not like to see people other than a white man in a White House or any other elected position.”
Until Democrats discover indisputable evidence that Republicans are as evil as they claim, we’ll just have to deal with their hasty and reckless media verdicts during episodes that are similar to the Trayvon Martin shooting, the Duke Lacrosse case, and the arrest of Professor Henry Louis Gates.
After every inexplicable act of violence, we’ll have to tolerate the fact that Democrats just won’t be able to help themselves from falsely assuming the suspects and assailants are members of the Tea Party – an overwhelmingly peaceful movement since its outset.
And we’ll have to stomach the Left’s vicious bigotry, selective outrage, double standards, and inconsistent political analyses.
For it is the depraved and violent Occupy Movement – the Tea Party’s left-wing counterpart – that has been embraced by the most prominent of Democrats.
For the press seemed oddly disinterested this week after a young man shot a security guard at the headquarters of the Family Research Council – a conservative think-tank based in DC – even after the 28 year-old suspect was exposed as a “liberal activist…in the DC area,” who said during the shooting, “I don’t like your politics,” whose parents told the FBI that he “has strong opinions with respect to those he believes do not treat homosexuals in a fair manner,” and who showed up to the scene armed not only with a firearm, but also with “15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches.”
For the Obama Justice Department seemingly has no motivation to investigate or prosecute members of the New Black Panther Party, whose leaders have openly engaged in blatant acts of voter intimidation, called for the murder of “crackers” and their “babies,” placed a bounty on the head of George Zimmerman, and threatened the upcoming GOP convention in Florida. In what appeared to be her best Joe Biden impersonation, New Black Panthers Chief of Staff Michelle Williams recently stated, “The Republicans hate black people…And for all of you black people who are Republicans…I ask you this day, when did you lose your dignity and lay down for these damn crackers who mean this black community no good? They’ve shown this. Their history has shown this.”
Williams went on to say that if Republicans continue to oppress blacks, “you better believe my foot will be on [their] goddam motherfucking necks.”
The American Left is a despicable and illegitimate political power broker. Its influence is derived from lies, myths, and the shallowest of political ethics. Its activist and intellectual core consists of Cross-hating atheists, abortionists, Black Panthers, radical professors, ignorant and inexperienced youth, frightened old people, neo-communists, Occupy anarchists, union thugs, anti-American pastors, race-hustlers, sexual radicals, and totalitarian champions of gay marriage.
Holding it all together is a community of media elites who enable them all by applying an everyday face to the utter radicalism of the entire Democratic complex.
