The Liberal Elite and Black Intellectual SerfdomBy Chidike Okeem
Recently, while campaigning for the upcoming midterm elections, President Obama engaged in classic liberal race-baiting by demagogically asserting that Republicans are counting on blacks not turning up to the polls. However, despite Obama's agenda in making that assertion, unfortunately, the underlying premise of his comment is accurate: the majority of blacks unthinkingly vote for Democrats in droves.
It is my contention that black people who diligently vote for Democrats are intellectual slaves to the liberal agenda, inasmuch as they, for the most part, are ignorant of the history of the Democratic Party and vote for policies that harm their communities. It is only a black intellectual slave who can observe the impact of liberal policies on the black community without having a scintilla of unease about pulling the lever for Democrats -- election after election.
Black liberals have been cleverly coaxed into believing that Democrats have their best interests at heart because these Democrats no longer don white pointed hoods, lynch people, and burn crosses. With more sophistication than the mass-murdering tactics they employed in the days of yore, Democrats continue to actively perpetuate insidious policies that keep blacks on the lowest rung of the socioeconomic totem pole.
The most prominent method that Democrats currently use to advance their atrocious policies in the black community is the use of black liberal elites as decoys.
Capitalism for the Goose, Socialism for the Gander
Unsurprisingly, the actions -- as opposed to the rhetoric -- of people who promote the "magnificence" of socialism show that they believe socialism is good only for others, whereas capitalism is fit for their lives.
Career race-baiters, like Al Sharpton, would not be doing what they do if there were little to no financial incentive. Fanning the flames of racial division across the country and incessantly calling for socialist handouts for blacks, frankly, would get rather boring without a lucrative $1,000,000 paycheck at the end of the year.
Likewise, Barack Obama has earned millions of dollars in royalties from his two soporific, self-important books, and he plans to continue his book-flogging bonanza by inking another deal for close to $2,000,000 for a children's book series.
Quick question: Why aren't these black men expectantly waiting with their hands out for food stamps from the government?
Sharpton can happily advocate socialist health care and all other sorts of government freebies that sound good on paper but are sub-par in reality because he is a multimillionaire. When he gets sick, he can afford to be treated at the finest hospitals with the best doctors in the world. Champagne socialists would never deign to subscribe to the policies they hypocritically foist on the masses, but the capitalist perks of promoting the "benefits" of socialism to black intellectual serfs is too profitable for a decadent hypocrite like Sharpton to pass up.
Socialism is nothing more than a deceitful left-wing farce that inherently creates a super-exclusive oligarchy under the laughable guise of egalitarianism.
If the Republican message to blacks of "stand up on your own two feet, stop relying on government handouts and benefits, get a stellar education, hone your native skills and talents, and work incredibly hard to make a massive success of your life" is something so extraordinarily depraved, why is it that the elite black left invariably follow the Republican roadmap to success in their private lives while advocating failed socialist tripe for the liberal black intellectual serfs?
From rappers to athletes to academics, every single black person who has made it out of unfortunate circumstances, climbed, and sustained his or her place at the top has done so through hard work and taking advantage of the capitalistic meritocracy in America.
Only mass intellectual serfdom in the black community can present an adequate explanation as to why the myth of "Benevolent Big Government" continues to prevail -- and why the black vote is almost monolithically given to the Democrats.
Uncle Sam: The Black Intellectual Serf's Worst Relative
A basic rule of economics is that if you want more of an activity, you subsidize it, and if you want less of an activity, you heavily tax it. Sadly, what Democrats have been doing for decades is subsidizing every bad action of impoverished blacks.
The most deplorable example of this is the exponential rise in the illegitimacy rate that came as a result of its liberal subsidization.
As was argued by the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan -- a rare sensible liberal -- the subsidization of illegitimacy poses all sorts of problems for the black community, including stymied economic progress, low IQs in children, high dropout rates, crime, and the dismantling of the black family.
Today, as a result of the Democrats' "well-intentioned" welfare policies, we now have a 70% illegitimacy rate in the black community, which will likely increase if the largesse of Big Government is not stopped.
Democrats have successfully addicted black liberals to the crack cocaine of government aid, so like any addict, black liberals keep coming back to the voting booth and pulling the lever for everything with a (D) after its name so they can get that next fix of Uncle Sam's free money.
Meanwhile, Sharpton and his profiteering ilk are raking in millions of dollars while countless blacks are suffering in intellectual slavery -- and are blinded to the fact that they've been robbed of all entrepreneurial vision and power that would allow them to create wealth and lift themselves out of a cycle of poverty.
The Democrat Emperor Has No Clothes
It's been nearly fifty years of failed Democrat policies, and all black intellectual slaves have to show for their decades of cultish allegiance to liberals is worsened poverty, a broken family structure, failing schools, massive black genocide via abortion, run-down communities, perennial joblessness, and almost every other social malady that can be imagined. Yet with recent approval ratings for President Obama remaining steady at 91% among blacks, there is no sign of black devotion to their Democrat oppressors changing anytime soon. Black liberals are suffering from political Stockholm syndrome. These blacks are the Uncle Toms they accuse us freedom-loving black conservatives of being.
The need for Democrat cross-burning in order to keep blacks in the underclass is over. Democrats have succeeded in creating black intellectual serfs who are so swayed by the blandishments of Big Government and the empty anti-capitalist rhetoric of the left that they don't even realize they've been hoodwinked by some of the biggest beneficiaries of capitalism!
Unless black liberals realize they've been the victims of a decades-long election-buying rip-off perpetrated by the Democrats -- and advanced using the cat's-paws of the black faces in the leftist elite -- the black community will remain in the quagmire of despair it has been in since the Democrats started handing black people their scraps to live off.
The black community's allegiance to Democrats is among the most shameful political facts in American history -- and it can be ended only by the articulation of a true conservative message from passionate, intrepid, and ethnically diverse messengers.
