Liberals, Racism, and America

In light of the Zimmerman verdict, liberals in America have once again played the overused race card. There are many examples of true racism such as:

  • Back in the mid-19th century when Democrats dressed up in white sheets, burning crosses, and lynching blacks.
  • Plessy v/s Ferguson
  • Emmitt Till being murdered for whistling at a white woman and the murderers being acquitted
  • Medgar Evers being assassinated

Those are examples of what real racism is. What we have today…not so much.

Racism is defined as

a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

or

hatred or intolerance of another race or other races

That is what you have in the examples listed above.

Liberals today use the race card as a tool of political expediency. When in doubt, cry racism and watch what happens. The reality is that liberals have no intent of actually ever improving race relations. If race relations actually improved, liberal race profiteers such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson not only would lose relevance, they would lose the “power” over people. Last, but not least, they would the source of their financial wealth.

There are so many examples that show that liberals have no true understanding of racism. A small sampling of liberals saying that opposing Obama is solely based on his race

08/23/08: Jacob Weisberg, Slate: “Racism is the only reason Obama might lose.”

08/07/09: Paul Krugman, New York Times: “[T]he driving force behind the town hall mobs is probably the same cultural and racial anxiety that’s behind the ‘birther’ movement, which denies Mr. Obama’s citizenship.”

09/13/09: Jimmy Carter, MSNBC: “I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man[.]”

01/19/10: Keith Olbermann, MSNBC: “[T]he Tea Party movement [is] perhaps the saddest collection of people who don’t want to admit why they really hate since the racists of the South in the sixties insisted they were really just concerned about states’ rights….[I]n Scott Brown we have an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, teabagging supporter of violence against woman and against politicians with whom he disagrees.”

The timeline provides other examples of liberals stating that all opposition to Obama is solely – as Jeneane Garafalo, a well-known liberal, put it – about “hating a black man in the White House.” (Not that you could pose an actual problem with his policy.)

Also, according to liberals, using the English language is also racist by its very nature. Again, just a small sampling –

What? You didn’t know that any of these words were racist but have actually used them in everyday conversation. You know what that means – you’re not a liberal and therefore a racist.

By the way, does anyone really think that “creepy ass cracker” is not racist? Did you know there is a difference between “nigga” and “nigger” according to Rachel Jenteal? One word is racist, but the other isn’t!! Yes, I am serious. I grew up in the hood and did not know there was a difference. (Raise your hand if you knew that.)

WOW!! The insanity only continues!!

The modern liberal has injected racism into every incident they can in recent history. The Rodney King incident was solely based on racism – not police brutality run amok – and was the catalyst for the LA riots. However, the attack on Reginald Denny, during those riots, was not prosecuted as a hate crime, but the Huffington Post interviewed one of the people who tried to kill him as a pretense for a discussion of racism in America.

(Try to kill a man cause he is a different race and, to the liberal, you are the perfect person to talk about racism in America.)

Wait, there’s even more –

In the instance of the Jena Six, and you have to love this depiction, six black teens severely beat a white teen, and if you listen to the liberal, the racists were the ones who tried to prosecute the black kids for attacking a white teen. (The focus was on that and not the other issues that were happening in that town.)

The Obama DOJ had a guilty verdict against the New Black Panther Party for this –

They had a conviction and they dropped the case. Why? Then there is video of the same group where the leader is admitting to blockading the polling place –

So, he admits to being there, there is a verdict against them, and the Obama Administration drops all charges. Why? According to liberals, racism did not play a part in that entire situation – except the racist prosecution against the New Black Panther Party.

As for George Zimmerman, the liberal will tell you it is racism. The FBI investigated and found no evidence to support racism as a motive for following Trayvon Martin. The Martins released a statement saying that case was not about racism. (Remember, it was their son who died.)

But, the liberals have demanded that the DOJ investigate it because it is racism and Trayvon’s civil rights were violated. (Did you notice who sounded the call in the link? The notorious race baiters Sharpton and Jackson.)

The violent protests that occurred after the verdict were because of the racist verdict. Numerous attacks on whites by blacks were occurred with the attackers shouting that it was for Trayvon. Obama has even said that his son would be Trayvon. Then when the talk of racism died down – Obama said it would be him.

The liberal has played the race card so many times that it no longer has any meaning. Thanks to liberals, instances of real racism will go unnoticed and unaddressed. Liberals have used it as a tool to push their own agenda.

Do they want to improve race relations?  The answer is no. They would need to know what true racism is first.

    You touched on something most people don’t know or won’t admit In the civil war it was Democrats that fought to keep slavery in place. They also have had over the years active members of the KKK withing their party. And you want to talk about racism, FDR rounded up over 110,000 Japanese Americans and put them in and put them in internment camps like Angel Island in the San Francisco Bay area. Simply because of their race.

      WWI as well – Wilson locked up German-Americans as well. The more ironic thing about both FDR and Wilson — they were progressives as well as Democrats. Now, I could go on for days about how racist Wilson was.

    Reginald Oliver Denny is still living in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. He has a daughter, Ashley.
