It infuriates me to no end that this candidate can stand on lecturns and say nothing of substance, and nobody challenges him on it. The few fast-balls fired at him have been categorized as "racist" and the ChiCom Manchurian candidates in the press don't say a word about it.
Now that the whole world can see that Obama suckled at the teat of racial intolerance, how can he account for such a discrepancy between his statements and his actions?
He can't - Plain and simple. Here's a great piece by Jerry Agar that is posted over at TownHall.com:
|I did not spend a moment today thinking about how to keep the black man down. Just another day.I can’t remember ever getting a memo about, or an invitation to a strategy meeting on keeping the corporation white.So stop telling me everything is my fault.Don’t get me wrong. White people are great organizers. Look at all those St. Paddy’s Day events we recently held. We just are not organizing against blacks.I am very aware of how well thought-out the vicious racism of the past was and that it was organized by white people. Some of them were judges, and politicians and business leaders; the so-called respectable people of the community. I would apologize for that, but I wasn’t there. That makes it no less a crime.I am aware that racism still exists. It is a sad part of the human condition. But it is no longer institutional in America and to the extent it exists, it runs both ways.But as we have heard over and over again lately from the pastor of an 8,000 member church, one of his 20-year parishioners who is running for president, and all of their media enablers, the problems in the black community today are still the fault of us white people. White guys in particular.In the Chicago Sun-Times columnist Mary Mitchell quotes a spokeswoman for Rev. Wright, Iva Carruthers, commenting on Obama’s speech. “The sad thing about this is, the people who really need to understand the message – white males – I don’t know if it will have any effect.”Barack Obama calls for the white community to understand that “investing in the health, welfare and education of black and brown and white children will ultimately help all of America prosper.”How much larger does he think America’s investment in those areas can get? In real dollars education spending is multiples of what it was four decades ago and test scores have hardly changed. If we have failed perhaps it is time for less government, the prevailing failing authority. Let’s call onto the carpet the people responsible. Is it those evil, suburban white guys again? Well, shame on them – no wait – it turns out that practically all of our big cities are run by liberal Democrats, many of them black. Education is dominated by a teachers union run by liberals, not white Republicans.|
And when "reverends" scream about reparations; can we say that Blacks have gotten 45 years of reparations already in the form of government welfare and entitlements? Sure. It's perfectly logical though politically incorrect to point that out. Shame on me!
More to the point, you can deduce that Republicans are more tolerant, more understanding and more empowering of Blacks than Democrats. Why, you may ask?
Because the focus of conservatism is self-reliance. We assume that if you're a healthy American, then you can do whatever you apply yourself to. You can be an engineer, an accountant, a lawyer, a teacher - or you can open your own business. We conservatives don't look to the Federal Government to hold our hands and coddle us like toddlers. But the Dems think you're an idiot who doesn't have enough sense to get out of the rain without seeing a warning placard on the side of a building. You have no farther to look than the current "mortgage crisis."
Here are an entire group of people who shouldn't have been given loans - either because their credit was horrible or because they didn't have the income to cover the payments. Now don't forget that the Federal Government, bent under by pressures from "inner-city" activists, mandated that lenders provide loans to "those of color." The consequences to those lenders who didn't is that they faced sanctions under the "Red Lining" laws. So now we're all paying the price for the race-baiter's whining about "racism" in lending. Another Big Government flop that you and I are paying for.
Just for your information, John Hawkins points out the 6 Uncomfortable Truths about Race in America. It's a must read. Here are the bullet points:
