The political question that I’ve asked above is meant only partly rhetorically. Coincidentally, Bruce Charlton, in a recent blog post, states in passing that most people in the West are variants of leftist, except for a few very religious people. I’ve said similar things here, so I believe he’s right. Incidentally, that blog piece deserves a post of its own here, maybe later.
So, in the wake of the Governor Northam blackface ‘controversy’, and the fact that more people, even on the ‘right’, seemed more up-in-arms about that than about the ‘post-term abortion’ idea, we have an illustration of the right’s triumphalism at being able to say ‘gotcha’ to the left. The politically corrected right jumps for joy when they think they’ve proven “DR3″, allowing the right to try to shame them. Of course such charges have proven to just roll off the left’s collective backs as it has every time; it’s impossible to shame the congenitally shameless. But Republicans/conservatives will never stop trying to get that accusation to stick, just as Charlie Brown continues to believe Lucy will give him a chance to kick that football, one day.
As to ‘Democrats are the Real Racists’, otherwise known as ‘DR3’, that may be, but it’s certain that deep down there are Republicans/conservatives who believe that there definitely IS a specific kind of dislike or ‘hate’ worse than any other sin or crime or ‘pathology’, called ”racism” and that it ‘s the role of the right to point an accusatory finger at the left whenever the occasion presents itself. The rationale for this behavior, this et tu quoque, is to try to deflect the charge from ourselves, or at least to say that the accuser is a hypocrite, which is not really an exoneration or much of a defense at all. In any case it has never yet worked as intended.
The people who gloat when they think they have proof of Democrats being ‘racists’ are simply reinforcing the left’s belief system by falling for it, accepting the premise behind their race-baiting as valid and true. They are dancing to the left’s tune. They are doing the work of the left for them. They are imitating the left. They are reinforcing the warped and dishonest ideology of the left. And to someone on the outside, that is, POCs and their enablers and sycophants on the left, this seems proof that all Whites are ‘racist’, because Whites accuse one another of racism, so it must be true that all of us are guilty. Of course most leftists don’t believe themselves guilty of anything; just Southrons or ‘right-wingers’, not they themselves; they believe they’re benefactors to the Victim Groups.
And speaking of which there’s the other side of the coin: both Repubs/right-wingers and the left claim the title of being the real allies and friends of the POCs. There was a leaflet or pamphlet from the post-Civil War (War Between the States) era in which the Dems and Republicans vied for the title of empancipators and general good guys. Both sides claimed they were the Real friends of POCs. So it’s nothing new, at least in the political world. Most politicians are prostitutes in the real sense of the word.
But to anyone from the South, especially the older generations, the distortion of history and Truth itself is unconscionable. For example in some of the ‘Q’ drops from a while back, the writer (who is unknown obviously) reiterates the old ‘Dems keeping the poor blacks On The Plantation, that is, on the ‘Democrat Plantation’, as if they don’t exercise a free choice. This is an example of denying moral agency or free choice on the part of blacks or other minorities; as if they are children. Isn’t that what most people call being patronizing? Or condescending, or infantilizing them? Wouldn’t that be the great sin of ‘racism’, for those who believe?
Minorities know that one party caters exclusively to people from minority groups, and rejects the majority as ‘evil’ and morally guilty. It’s obvious whose bread is buttered on whose side; people usually vote for those who woo and cater to them most blatantly, but as of now one side has no party to represent its interests. POCs know which is which and vote accordingly. The GOP caters to minorities increasingly, as if in competition with the Dems as to who can pander most shamelessly, and it’s evident that both parties are disregarding the majority while working furiously to make it the minority as soon as possible.
Some of the questions asked by the ‘Anon’ in the Q material I referred to (no working link to it, sorry) were things like ‘How do the Dems hide from blacks the facts about ‘how the Confederacy was formed, how a certain ‘hate group’ was formed?’ And my reaction was: how does the anonymous questioner think the ‘Confederacy was formed’? That’s all in the old history books; the Confederate States of America was formed by the people of those states, and not for simplistic, single-factor reasons. As for how, or more importantly why a certain secret society was formed, it seems that most Americans, of any color, have little clue about that whole sordid era of our history, and most have false ideas of how and why it happened. The fact is that over half a million people were killed in that war, and few Americans even understand why, instead chalking it up to racial animus on one side, only, as if there were not multiple factors. If only we had an educational system that was not biased, that was actually interested in truth, and that was not invariably committed to anti-Southron slanders. Maybe then people would understand their ancestors better, and be free from bias against their own people in favor of Others.
It’s hard to have faith in our folk since more than half, it seems, regardless of political orientation, are playing the left’s game, by the left’s rules, and at best we have only feeble ‘civic nationalism’ with which to counter the insane antics of the globalist/one-worlder politically correct machine.
