After Barack Obama’s first four years in office, our friends on the left began to recognize the reward structure that was beginning to form for anyone who claimed to have been subjected to racism. Victimization was incentivized. It paid to be oppressed. Since that time, the original definition of ‘racism’ has been bastardized to an extent that it is no longer recognizable.
Everything is Racist
So, what should we do? How do we take a stand against a sport that flaunts its toxic masculinity every time a player steps up to the plate and grabs his cup? The first step is to organize some tough guys to help, and they don’t have to really be tough, they just have to act that way. We can have them wear black clothes and black masks, and we can call them AntiBa (an abbreviation for “anti-baseball”).
Want to erase and destroy America day after day and month after month until it’s gone? Call whatever you want to erase, “Racist!” and boom! You can drag it into your “recycle bin” and delete. A tiny minority of slash and burn Leftists are taking a sledgehammer to our history and our culture at an alarming rate.
Meat was not sexist or racist, or supremacist to the earliest hunter-gatherers. It was dinner. Men risked their lives to feed themselves, women, and children because they were stronger and faster. These days their male ancestors can claim to be women to rob them of their rights, safe spaces, and now athletic accomplishments. They call that social justice, but I don’t see it.
It reminds me of what in Philosophical Logic is known as the “Argument of the Beard,” which asks: How many hairs does it take to make a beard. If someone answers 500, the next question becomes: But how about 499? That’s only one hair’s difference. Why can’t that be a beard? If you allow it, then why not 498, and on and on. So how many boxes need to be checked to lead a fully privileged life?
It is time to protest less and work harder for everyone to take advantage of every person’s infinite possibilities in this country. On Sunday, Tony Dungy, the former coach of the Indianapolis Colts, said that there are not enough Black head coaches in the NFL. He said that the owners had responsibility for hiring more Blacks but then qualified his statement in his following sentence. He went on to say the most qualified person needs to be hired.
Which party advocated racial segregation? That would again be the Democrats. In fact, segregationist southern Democrats even had their own club which they called the Dixiecrats – harkening back to the antebellum glory days of the south. The Dixiecrats were racist – and proud of it. George Wallace famously said, “Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.” He was the Governor of Alabama – also a Democrat.
But the “okay” sign hasn’t always meant “white supremacy.” It used to just mean “okay” – you know, as an innocent answer to a question. That got me to thinking. If its meaning had changed over time, what other non-verbal communication signals had changed as well? I don’t want to accidently signal that I’m a cis-gendered homophobe or something. I decided to do a little research.
Call me naive, but I have always thought that having media outlets that cater to a particular race or ethnic group, in this case, Black, is itself Racist. I think that singling out groups to celebrate, such as Black History Month or Gay Pride Week, promotes division and does the opposite of their intentions. I was not raised looking through the lens of color, but people like April Ryan try to force us to look through their lens.
Now is the time for a full-throttle ad campaign that lets voters in battleground states see with their own eyes how Democrats have heaped misery and despair on generations of decent people in the inner city. I will generously contribute to such an effort, and believe millions of other conservatives fed-up with being slandered as knuckle-dragging racists would do likewise.
In Madison, Wisconsin, leftists have just declared a rock to be racist. It wasn’t adorned with any inscription. There was nothing racist about its name. But it had to be removed because its very presence on campus was offensive. Even an unthinking, inanimate object became racist because of something someone said about it in a newspaper article almost 100 years ago.
This effort by Biden, Fauci, and the rest to divide us by vaccines is just their latest approach to identity politics. It’s not about public health and safety, it’s about power. At every opportunity they try to divide us by skin color, religion, gender, sexual preference, and age, among other traits. Now they’re trying to divide us based on antibodies.
When the leaders of a political party give a wink and a nod to the incitement of hatred against a targeted opponent, it doesn’t take long before such hate becomes embedded within the overall society, as happened in Nazi Germany.
Mrs. Obama has reason to worry about her driving age daughters being shot and killed, but not by police. According to Heather MacDonald’s best-selling book, “The War on Cops,” black Americans between the ages of 10 and 43 die of homicide at 13 times the rate of whites—killed not by the police, not by whites, but by other blacks.
Bad things happen. Doctors misdiagnose all the time, and some even have a terrible bedside manner. Bush and the Democrats want to marginalize and control the medical profession… just like “defund the police.”
The left wants the supply of racist incidents to be high so that they have much about which they can complain. The problem is, that supply just isn’t there. So they make up incidents. Jussie Smollett. Bubba Wallace. This case at Viterbo. Etc. They’re all just made up. America isn’t a racist nation, however much leftists want it to be.
Joe Biden’s (handlers’) State Department, where appointees have decried “white male dominated” diplomacy as leading to “systemic racism.” They essentially assert that minorities and women would do a better job.
There are strong arguments to be made for opposing such laws, but playing the race card by pointing at some type of two-wheeled, watered down version of racist police brutality isn’t one them. And neither is the idea that helmets are unaffordable.
Meritocracy is the solution to diversity. Let people be the best that they can be on their own merits, and ignore the rest. Isn’t that what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. meant when he said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character?”
Watching the news this past year is all the proof I need that the melanin-deprived among us must make amends, somehow. So, I’m going to do my part to atone for my transgressions.
In this installment of our weekly conversation, PF Whalen and Parker Beauregard of The Blue State Conservative examine the controversy surrounding voter ID laws, and how the recently-passed voting law in Georgia affects the larger debate.
The left has twisted the meaning of ‘racist’ to a point that many of us must take such an allegation as a compliment. Their approach has become so warped and perverse that virtually anyone can be called a racist at any time, for no other reason than disagreeing with them.
What was harmless and worthy of celebration only a few years ago is wholly unacceptable today, and what would have been viewed as racist then is virtuous now. It’s all very confusing, and not accidental.
By Guest Author, Parker Beauregard from TheLastBestHope.xyz In the world of the left, racism is ubiquitous.… Read More »Everything About Modern Transportation Is Racist
