Muslims! Don't Become the Little Darlings of the Liberals!

I know that all respectable people are supposed to be outraged at the racist, sexist, bigoted statement of Donald Trump on Muslims. Here is what he said, a week ago.

Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.

I have bolded the part that caught my eye. Really, how timid can the Trumpster get? How about “calling for a total and complete shutdown of” all government “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on?”

Our country’s representatives obviously don’t know what is going on with the economy, else we’d have 3-4 percent growth by now. In fact, we wouldn’t have had the 2008 Crash and the Great Recession if our country’s representatives had figured out what was going on with Fannie and Freddie. Ditto Obamacare. Ditto Affirmative Action, for which Justice Scalia just got a full pulpit load from our country’s representative Preacher Harry Reid.

But that’s not what I want to talk about. My worry is about you Muslims. Not about whether or not you will get to visit the U.S., or whether you will have to swear on the Koran that you don’t believe in Sharia law.

No. My worry about you Muslims is this: that liberals will tempt you into becoming their next little darlings, like the working class, like women, like African Americans. And my message is: Don’t. Don’t become the little darlings of the liberals. Don’t think that liberals are in your corner because they say they care for you. They don’t care about you; they only care about your vote.

But never mind about that. Let’s be practical. There’s another reason why you don’t want to become little darlings of the liberals. It’s because the little darlings of the liberals have not turned out too well: not any of them. Of course this is the usual fate of kept women, as any French novel reader will attest. But that is another story.

Like ordinary sugar daddies, liberals tempt their little darlings free stuff: pensions, privileges, apartments, EBTs, baubles, bangles, and beads. But free stuff doesn’t prepare you for life after little darlinghood, any more than sugar daddies care a whit about the once-hot tomatoes whose young love they bought up and consumed.

Let’s review the victims of liberal little-darling politics.

Exhibit A is, of course, the white working class. The liberals larded up the white working class with so many benefits and privileges that, with the slow-motion end of factory work over the last 50 years, the white working class has no oomph left, so it is drinking and drugging itself to death.

What about African Americans? Liberals have helped them so much that they are getting killed, 50 years after the civil rights era, at 8 times the rate for whites, mostly by other black males. Their children are fatherless and their youths are jobless. Then, in the con-job of the century, blacks voted for a First Black President who did nothing to improve the lot of African Americans. No wonder African Americans are crying Black Lives Matter as liberals stand by and watch black gangs kill each other for turf.

How about women? Surely nobody can deny that women have benefited from their liberation from age-old patriarchy? As Sheryl Sandberg advises young women: you can date all the boys you like -- bad boys, cool boys, crazy boys -- just don’t marry them. But isn’t that precisely the misery of the special snowflakes like Mattress Girl? She doesn’t want one night stands with boys. She wants a relationship; she wants to be loved! So now she is angry. Some liberation.

Liberals are trying out the same number on Hispanics, trying to segregate them into a Latino ghetto where they can radicalize them with hate, but so far it’s hard to know how well they are succeeding. Gays and lesbians? Let’s talk about them some other time.

Surely you Muslims are smarter than the yokels that swallowed the liberal line and got sucked into the black hole of little darlinghood. You get the idea that politicians aren’t interested in you, just in your vote. So you get that the liberal Islamophobia line is just a cheap bid for your vote.

And you get that, you know that if moderate actions against Islamic crazies are not taken now then immoderate actions against all Muslims will occur later. What will today’s liberal line on Islamophobia be worth then?

This is not that hard, Muslims. When the liberal sugar daddy comes calling with honeyed words about Islamophobia and free stuff, you just tell him that what your real daddy told you: never vote for a politician that treats you like a little darling.
