Where’s the Racism?

September 24, 2010

I don’t know where this got started, but I’d like to see how it can continue.

The charge is that someone who believes in limited government is racist. Somehow, the fundamental belief that government is limited while the rights of the people are not, that government is taxing, spending, and regulating too much and must lower taxes, spending, and reduce regulations is the same as believing that some people are inferior because of the color of their skin.

There is a parallel charge that republicans are racist because they are republican. This one boggles the mind because it was the very thought of ending slavery that lead to the creation of the Republican Party in the first place. A quick review of the history books shows that the Republican Party has been extremely radical in its anti-racial legislation and amendments passed. After Lincoln died, the party went through a fundamental transformation that lead it to become even more radical in its pursuit of the end of racism than it was during the war.

In fact, the party of racism has been, and in many ways, remains the Democratic Party. A quick review of history will show this to be true. Even today’s campaigning by democrats show that racism is alive and well within that party, as they try to divide Vietnamese from Blacks and Mexicans and Whites with their rhetoric.

In the interest of fairness, I’m opening up the forum for someone to explain how believing in limited government is fundamentally racist. If there are no takers, then I will be left to conclude that there is no connection between the two philosophies.

Those of you who accuse the Tea Party or Republican Party of being racist without knowing why are no better than those who showed up to the KKK rallies without really understanding why they had noosed up that particular republican or black fellow, other than everyone else said it was the right thing to do. (Yes, the KKK did kill many republicans.) It is people like you are close-minded.


Don’t Expect Civility

September 24, 2010

The left has shown itself to be wholly uncivil. Civility is not to be expected, although it is to be demanded.

Here are some examples from yesterday.

One, Sharron Angle, the challenger to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, was heckled ruthlessly. Her time was consumed with shouts, taunts, and jeering. At the end of the show, two women from the Reid camp and one man from the Angle camp apparently got into a fistfight. I haven’t heard the story from the Angle supporter, so I don’t have any idea what happened. (link)

Two, the democrats invited comedian Stephen Colbert to testify in front of a congressional committee. Obviously, it didn’t turn out well. Apparently, the congressional committees aren’t too fond of jokes and exaggerations. That Stephen Colbert accepted the invitation, and that he treated his opportunity to testify before the congress of the most powerful nation in the world’s history with such levity, shows that he does not understand the basics of what makes our society function. He is, after all, a leftist. (link)

Three, a member of the Department of Justice, Christopher Coates, used his opportunity to testify before congress to invoke his whistleblower privileges. He not only uncovered how the Obama administration is openly racist, but is actively trying to undermine our suffrage rights by allowing thugs to run the polling centers. Even in the Department of Justice, there is no justice from the leftists. (link)

Civility—this is a word that is lost on the leftist. To them, they see the world as “us” and “them”. They see “them” as the enemy—corrupt people with black hearts trying to inflict evil on the helpless and hopeless. They see “us” as the white-clothed knights of the round table, riding white horses with glimmering swords and fighting the evil, using whatever measures are necessary to stop the plans of the nefarious “them”.

I have long ago stopped trying to understand what causes the leftists to think the way they do. I can only chalk it up to mental insanity, childishness, selfishness, or corruption, and perhaps a combination of the above. Drugs, such as alcohol and others, along with morale depravity are also likely involved.

However, I can tell you how they think. And I can tell you how to defeat them.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie knows how to handle the leftists. He does so quite effectively. His tactics can be defined as simply:

  1. Adhering to reason and abandoning emotion. Don’t let them goad you into getting angry, and don’t abandon logic. Use it against them. You’ll have to understand their arguments so you don’t hear anything new. This means reading all you can from their publications.
  2. Patience and understanding. Governor Christie is more than willing to repeat himself again and again, even using the same words, so that when you view the event as a whole, you understand exactly what his reasons are. He can easily and quickly state the opponent’s platform in a way they can’t disagree with.
  3. Demanding civility from the left. He does so by a variety of methods, but the most effective is simply this: pointing out their own childishness and incivility and explaining that without civility, there is no forum for them to speak to him.

We, too, should follow this example.

On a side note, Chris Christie has done something that is so tremendous it will be forever praised in the history of the world: He has shut down all the Planned Parenthood abortion clinics throughout the State of New Jersey. (link) Countless thousands of children will be born that otherwise would have not, and many of those children are going to be blacks that would otherwise have been murdered by Planned Parenthood, whose only plan is to commit genocide against the less worthy among us through abortion and birth control.
