I remember the election of 2008. We were entering a post racial world, or that’s what we were told. This president and his administration were going to usher in a new, kinder, gentler race dialogue. We were going to be able to unite behind this our first African-American president. Since Obama was in actuality bi racial this added to the mythology that he was uniquely American and therefore uniquely qualified to head this diverse country.
Instead what we’ve had is a steady diet of racism. It seems the administration and their apologists have sought to enforce and spotlight every negative stereotype possible in their single minded quest for ultimate power. They have been willing to abandon and dismantle all of the gains in civil rights our society has made in the last 50 or so years. They had willing handmaidens from the left and from the right. People who have been working behind the scenes to divide us have gained not just a foothold in popular culture but have set up base camp and are perpetuating their poison within the administration themselves.
Now there is new threat although it’s not really new. We are to be held hostage, to give up our essential rights to free and honest elections by a group of thugs and miscreants. If their guy doesn’t win they’re going to make us pay. Of course the fact that their guy happens to be the same color as they, has no bearing on why they support him. The fact that this man is the most incompetent, inexperienced, least capable of doing the job, which he has proven in the last three + years, should be cast aside. We should vote for him because we’re afraid of the consequences. We should in fact stay home and not vote if we don’t vote for him. We can’t disagree with policies, ideas or ideology because if we do we are inherently racist.
Louis Farakhan has spoken in Charlotte NC about the need for blacks to resort to violence to keep the electorate “from keeping American White”. Louis Farakhand the man who described New York City as “hymetown. The man who helped bring us Tawna Brawley, a man who has called for the extinction of Israel and the Jews, He has suggested that his followers riot if the current resident of 1400 Pennsylvania Ave. is not returned to the throne.
Now I know that math is sometimes difficult for people to grasp. I realize that people are not taught history and civics as they should be. (thanks in large part to an educational establishment run by left wing ideologues and former flower children who have a hate hate relationship with our Democratic Republic). People who when it fits their designs are willing to discard our liberties, freedoms and laws to further their secular, socialist, communist agenda. The numbers though do not lie. There are roughly 12 % of the US population that claim to be African American. Nearly 1 in 3 black men will be in prison at any one time and that does not even begin to count women. After committing a felony one’s right to vote is restricted. So the actual number of those in this demographic is actually smaller. We hear from Farahkan and others race dividers that if we don’t return the worst president in the history of the country to the White House they will “pistol whip” white people, they will riot in the streets, destroy our cities, kill our families and reign in horror upon the Earth. Why again do we want anyone who promotes this kind of divisive doctrine who’s best is not on the good of all, only on the elevation of some to match their inflated opinions of themselves? We’ve gone from people seeking to be equal to people being elevated over their fellow citizens.
We cannot go back in time to fix the mistakes of the past. We can only acknowledge where we are and move forward to create the life we dream of. That dream is being destroyed by a group of people who’s idea of public service is that the public is there as a piggy bank, some of the public, the actual producers, the job creators that is. Instead of job creation by the private sector which is sustainable we have a rise in government employment, which sadly isn’t . Instead of coming together we are being driven apart. We are being demonized by unscrupulous charlatans on both sides of the racial chasm, with an ever widening gulf between us.
It is time fellow citizens, black, white, red, green, blue, yellow or orange to come together, to put off hyphenated modifiers and become Americans. We need to ask not what is good for us, but what is good for our families, friends and neighbors. It is time to show race baiters that this is a “dog that won’t hunt.” Now before the shooting starts we need to make it perfectly clear we will make quite sure that should there be violence, it will never happen again.
We are not black or white, hispanic or european. We are Americans.
