How would we know we were racist if the left wasn't there to help us?
Every white guilt stricken American knows they're a racist and every progressive lefty is there to help the rest of us find our true racist self.
But did you hear the news?
The Left thinks they have discovered evidence of a secret racist language spoken in code by the Tea Party and other grassroots Americans. Words like budgets, border control, voter identification, school vouchers, gold standard, prayer, free-market, even the Constitution are believed to be part of some kind of archaic freedom worshipper cult. How might these individuals vote on election day? This question alone is enough to give progressives a serious case of the hives.
Naturally, the only way for these code-breaking wizards to control such covert linguistic heresy is to discredit any white person who speaks with even a mere hint of a conservative tongue or, as they've done in more recent cases, silence them altogether. How? Simply call them a "racist."
After all, it's the Saul Alinsky way! By the by, if you're black and attempt to leave the government plantation, progressives have a special pet name for you, too--"Uncle Tom." Remember, the NAACP, Congressional Black Caucus, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and even Louis Farrakhan all agree, black people who talk this less government and more liberty nonsense are not black enough, perhaps not even black at all.
If you've ever wondered why all of this race demagoguery has reached such levels of absurdity, just look at all the embarrassing images of the sixties. Talk about absurd. This was a time when America turned its back on everything quintessentially American and called it progress. In the middle of it all, America had once more acknowledged its wrong of racial oppression and whites became stigmatized with historical racism. So, what are a bunch of closet colonialists to do but offer a massive expansion of big government entitlement programs as a direct means of repentance and reparations for the past? Ultimately, of course, this put government right back at the center of playing racial favorites, albeit with a newly created and perpetually dependent voter base.
Now enter the white progressive race-mongers (i.e., "forward thinking" people) who never let a good crisis go to waste. This is a noticeably insecure group who seek a new kind of power in which there is a posturing of superiority over other whites they believe are of lesser cognitive capacity. After nearly 50 years, they're betting that today's whites, like their predecessors, are seeking a fuller measure of redemption by proving they're not racists.
This year is a critical election year and progressives are desperate to maintain their stranglehold on America. This is why they have resorted to hard-core Alinsky tactics--believing we're too stupid to know any better. Fortunately, we're on to them. In fact, calling a person a "racist" for not toeing the big government line reveals to the rest of us that progressives actually suffer from the very same woefully inadequate communication skills they accuse us of, perhaps acquired while attending their swanky universities.
If there is one thing I have learned, it's that you can't argue with a lunatic fringe who believes they are intellectually superior to you. So, when it comes to standing up for American principles of more liberty and less government on November 6, I think we should all throw up our hands and confess, just for them, that indeed we are all racists now--and vote accordingly!
