Ayn Rand on Racism

Whether one wishes to call it nazism, communism, socialism, fascism, progressivism, liberalism, nativism, tribalism, racism, etc., at the end of the day, it’s all just collectivism.

Be the Best Saboteur You Can Be

By: Daniel Greenfield
Sultan Knish

Governor Haley and Al Sharpton

1. There is no conservative party

There is a Republican Party. The purpose of the party and its politicians, much like that of its Democratic counterpart, is to obtain money and privileges for its major donors.  That doesn’t mean that its members don’t have other ideals and agendas, but Republican politicians who rise high enough come from an urban and suburban establishment that is more liberal than its base.

Expecting them to care as much about your issues as you do is unrealistic.

They will only do the right thing insofar as it helps them

A. Get control of money

B. Advance their careers

C. Become popular

And this is a good thing. It means that they’re controllable. It means that the Democrats are also controllable. And this is how the left took over the Democratic Party.

The only way to interact with the large body of politicians is through the carrot and the stick. The “destructive” Republican saboteurs the establishment complains about, whatever their motives, are serve as the stick, undermining and sabotaging efforts to conduct business as usual.

The only way conservatives can get anything done now is by threatening business as usual.

Washington D.C. is never going to be the solution, but to the extent that its business as usual is threatened, sabotaged and held hostage, it will have trouble putting its boot on ordinary people. Until the Republican establishment changes its ways, populist saboteurs are the best conservative weapon.

Don’t expect them to do the right thing. Don’t be disappointed when they don’t. And certainly don’t expect them to solve all this.

The only way they will ever do the right thing is if you have leverage over them.

2. Fight the small stuff

You don’t have to think in terms of a national movement. You don’t even have to think in terms of an organization. Those are things that we need, but you can fight the left in small ways at home.

I’m not talking about Sign X or donate to Y.

Just obstruct any liberal initiative, policy or program in your community. It doesn’t matter what. It doesn’t matter if it’s innocuous. It doesn’t matter if you agree with it.

Undermine it on principle. If you can, vote it down. Encourage others to vote it down. If you can’t, look for ways to tie it in red tape by attaching other agendas to it.

The left wins its biggest victories at the planning stage. Its activists come early and stay late. They propose their plans, rig meetings, use kids and the elderly as human shields, and get their way. They are not used to any real opposition. Particularly the kind that doesn’t bluster, but finds ways to tie their proposals in knots, to make them expensive and drag them out as long as possible.

Oppose them when you can. Concern troll them when you can’t.

If you don’t have that kind of position, think of the origins of the term ‘sabotage’. Workers threw their shoes into machines and stopped the machine. Don’t do anything illegal. Don’t do anything that will get you fired.

But if you have the opportunity to make a liberal program work badly, if you have a legal way to put more stress on it, to tie up the energy and time of the people running it, to make it worse… do it.

We’re the underdogs. We’re the political guerrillas. This is not our system. It’s their system.

Our job is to make it run as badly as possible.

Henry David Thoreau wrote that there’s always injustice in government just as there’s always friction in a machine. It’s when injustice becomes dominant in government, then friction has its own machine.

The left’s friction is now the machine. Get your shoes in the machine. It already runs badly, make it run worse. It already costs too much, make it cost more. You are now the friction. With enough friction, the machine breaks down.

That’s part of what the left did to us. It dragged down our government and culture. It poked a thousand holes in everything. It made it too tiresome and wearying to go on doing this and that. Morale withered, confidence broke down and the left took over.

Now it’s their turn to be on the receiving end.

I’m not going to give the Mario Savio speech

“There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart that you can’t take part! You can’t even passively take part! And you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus — and you’ve got to make it stop! And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it — that unless you’re free the machine will be prevented from working at all!”

That’s for younger people. It’s for a mass movement.

But you can wear down the machine in a thousand different ways without risk. You don’t have to throw your bodies on the gears. You just have to be a wholly legal burden on it and a pain in the ass of the people running it… and especially the people planning it.

The big stuff begins with the little stuff. When you fight the little stuff, the big stuff starts breaking down.

3. Deny legitimacy to the system

Liberals like to crow that ObamaCare is the law of the land. Now it’s gay marriage. Tomorrow it’ll be a ban on the Dukes of Hazzard.

All that implies legitimacy, order, a legal system. And that’s not what we have.

What we have is a Supreme Court and a White House that acts with brazen illegality. ObamaCare was illegally passed. It was illegally preserved.

No matter how many judges sign off on it, it has no legitimacy. It will never have any legitimacy.

America is built on the simple premise that no system can be more legitimate than its natural laws and founding premises. It does not matter how many judges or politicians try to suspend the First or Second Amendments. All they are doing is removing their own legitimacy.

When a system acts illegally, then its dictates are not the law of the land, they are the law of force.

ObamaCare is coercion. Forcing people to participate in gay marriages is coercion. The FHA ruling is coercion. We may be compelled into compliance, but compulsion is all it is. It isn’t law or justice.

The distinction is important.

When we follow the law, we do so because it is right. When we are coerced, we are at gunpoint by an illegitimate system. Those who compel us are not any different than criminals.

Not only is the system illegitimate, but it is also inconsistent, though it claims there is equality under the law, is favors some at the expense of others.

The system is not only illegal, it is also hypocritical and corrupt. That must be emphasized at every turn.

Liberals maintain a narrative that their way is the inevitable path of progress. We know the truth. Their way has been tried and it failed a thousand times. The only thing inevitable is their eventual failure. Their systems will always be abusive, dishonest and corrupt.

They will always turn undemocratic no matter how they start out. They will always turn to coercion.

When we act and when we talk it is vitally important that we distinguish between the legitimate laws we follow and the illegitimate laws we comply with.

This may seem like a technicality, but it’s a technicality that tyrannies have fallen on.

Every liberal victory is not a triumph. It is another pile of dirt on their own graves. It is another straw on the back of the camel. It is another demonstration that they are corrupt and illegitimate. Their latest victories were gained by abusing the process. They will in the long run lose them just as criminals eventually lose their loot. They have not defeated us. They have corrupted themselves.

4. We’re not done

Every conservative these days seems to have a tipping point for when America will end. None of them are real.

This country was built out of a tiny fraction of the territory and population it holds today. It was built by a handful of people organizing and rousing a movement that spread to a minority of the population at the time.

If the revolution were happening today, it would look a lot like the way it looked then, with major cities in the hands of the establishment and the Loyalists and a handful of farmers that even their formally trained commanders held in contempt fighting against them and the might of an empire.

That’s not coincidence. It’s the whole of human history.

During the Revolutionary War, the entire rebel population of America would be outnumbered by the residents of Manhattan today.

Demographically outnumbered? They had it worse.

Economic collapse? They had it worse.

America isn’t over until it’s over. It will take a long time to happen. At some point the country will be completely unrecognizable, but that’s relative. Would Washington have recognized America in 1952? Or even 1882? America has always been changing. We can’t change it back, but we can change it to.

That’s the real battle.

Contrary to what some conservatives like to believe, the left did not suddenly show up here in 1963 or 1905 and disrupt a formerly peaceful country. The left has always been here. It’s a part of us.

No people and no country are untouched by evil. It’s only a matter of what form it takes. But in any form, we know it by its destructive instincts, its facade of righteousness that poorly conceals a lust for power. Americans have fought it before. Americans have won.

It’s big now, but it’s not nearly as big as we think.

5. A little rhyme and reason

I’ll close with a few selected lines from a children’s nursery rhyme from the days of the big bad USSR that once threatened the world, before folding under the pressure of its people who found the courage to stand up to it.

It’s written for children… but like much that was written in the USSR, it had a message for adults.

The Monster Cockroach

Kornei Chukovsky

To the picnic they all come,
Munching candy and cake,

In a very merry mood,
For a day at the lake.

Then suddenly they grow numb and still!
Who’s that coming down the hill?!

A fierce and dreadful Roach!
A mean cock-cock-Cockroach!
“Don’t you dare to approach!”
He roars, he rages:

“I’ll lock you in cages!
And swallow you ALL

“Or with a twitch of my mustache,
I’ll turn you all to succotash!”

Alas! Not one dares to fight,
Every bird and beast take flight!

Now the Lion climbs a hill;
From there he speaks his royal will:

“We must regain our happy land!
Against the brute we’ll take a stand!”

“And to the warrior who fears not this foe,
Who this monster will overthrow,
To him I’ll give a juicy bone
And the finest pine cone!”

The creatures in one eager crowd,
Surge forth and cry out loud:

“We do not fear this nasty foe,
With tooth and claw
We’ll lay him low!”

And they all rush to do battle-
Birds, fish, fowl, and cattle.

But the Roach moves his mustache
And bellows: “SUCCOTASH!”

One and all they beat a retreat.
The enemy they don’t defeat!

Into the fields and woods they dash-
Terrorized by the Roach’s mustache!

The Lion shouts: “What a disgrace!
Come back! Come out and show your face!
Pin the enemy with your horns-
Bulls, rhinoceros, unicorns!”

But each in his hiding place stays,
And wails: “Horns aren’t cheap these days…”
And our skin is precious too-
What you ask we cannot do!”

Caught in nettles the crocodiles twitch,
And the elephants get caught in a ditch.

Lo! All that’s heard now
Is the flow of tears;
All that’s seen now
Is the trembling of their ears!

To the Cockroach they all yield-
He’s now lord o’er wood and field.
He struts about among them,
Rubbing his tummy,
Looks at their young ones
And says: “How very yummy!”

The poor, poor parents
Are in distress.
Their dear babes
They hug and caress:

For what mother could give up her child,
Her baby tame or her baby wild?!
So that the monster could devour
Her precious crumb, her little flower!

So mommies and daddies moan and cry
As they bid their infants good-bye!

But now we see another picture:
a flighty flying nimble creature-
A carefree Sparrow lands with a trill
right there on the Roach’s hill,

And for a moment all are mute
Fearing the mustachioed brute:

“A monster?! Where?!

“It’s a roach, a roach, a wee-bit roach,
A little beetle you fear to approach.
Look! It’s a midge a mite,
A bug that can’t even bite!

For our trouble we’re to blame!
What a shame!
What a shame!”

The Hippo then comes forth
With slow pace and a worried face,
Muttering in an anxious way:

“Please go away, go away!
Your words will make him very mad,
He may think of something very bad!

Then the Hippo falls still,
Surprised by a sudden trill…

The sparrow bends her dainty neck
Peck, peck, peck-
Not a smidgen, not a speck!

The roach is swallowed in a flash,
All of him and his mustache!

Forum: Is It Time to Replace the GOP? Would You Support a New Party?

The Watcher’s Council

Every week on Monday morning, the Council and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum with short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture or daily living. This week’s question: Is it Time To Replace The GOP? Would You Support A New Party?

The Noisy Room: I am very close to that pivot shift. The tipping point for me will be the nomination for 2016. If a true conservative does not clinch the nomination due to RINO machinations, then I will swing to a Third Party, consequences be damned. There will be those who say, if you do that, Hillary Clinton is assured the ascendency. My reply to that is if someone such as Jeb Bush is nominated, Hillary Clinton or the likes of Bernie Sanders will win anyway and we have nothing to lose anymore. I truly believe if a candidate such as Ted Cruz is forced to run on a Third Party ticket, he stands an excellent chance of winning – barring voter fraud and being assassinated by the powers-that-be.

I believe a new Civil Rights movement has just been born out of this week’s Supreme Court rulings. The end of our Constitutional government is upon us with lawless rulings from the bench and the dissolution of the three branches of government into one monstrously corrupt executive behemoth. Leaders will now rise in that movement and Ted Cruz will almost certainly be one of them. He is one of the few with the stones to stand and tell it like it is. He is also a master debater and won’t be silenced. I am joining with other Constitutionalists out there such as Trevor Loudon, James Simpson, Cliff Kincaid, Wild Bill, the Black Robe Regiment and many, many others calling for civil resistance. We will not comply. A third party could very well be at the forefront of the resistance. As Daniel Greenfield of Sultan Knish penned it, be the best saboteur you can be.

The Independent Sentinel: I always said that I would wait until 2016 to give up on Republicans and I would prefer to do that. They are our only hope and they haven’t had the majority they need to overrule Barack Obama on anything except those bills that liberals like.

Oddly, when the Democrats held power, they got what they wanted and now that they don’t hold power, they get what they want. The establishment refuses to use the power of the purse. It appears that the Republican establishment is too weak-willed to fight back, think keeping their jobs is the prime objective, or maybe they are just as liberal as the Democrats.

The establishment is now punishing Conservatives who do what their constituents want over their demands. We see Mitch McConnell ripping into the Confederate flag instead of telling people that flag was a creation of the Democratic party. The list of unappealing Republican establishment responses is endless.

If they don’t cut it out and if they shove a RINO down our throats, then I will join any reasonable movement to start a third party.

JoshuaPundit: I’ve done a lot of thinking about this one, especially as I saw the reaction from all sides to this weeks’ events.

I am by no means a die hard Republican, but I am loyal to certain principles they supposedly represent. I actually hoped that after they won control of congress, we would finally see them do as they promised and uphold those principles again. But we were simply lied to.

I no longer feel it is possible to hijack or take control of the GOP. My own feeling is that this Regime’s unprecedented NSA spying and secret data collection unearthed things certain congressmen, government figures and even perhaps a Supreme Court Justice or two desperately want hidden. After all, this president has used these tactics before, and that kind of leverage would certainly account for his aggressive attitude since the midterms. Whether it’s that or simple cowardice or avarice, it doesn’t matter.

I also no longer see waiting around until 2016 as an option. The time to organize is now, a year and a half before the elections so that cohesive principles can be agreed on, strategy plotted out and lines of communication opened. We need to act to secure the liberty of ourselves and our prosperity, rather than once again depending on the Republican Party (or the Democrats, for that matter) to do it for us.

Doing so gives us a much larger, united seat at the table. And it provides a framework for something new and badly, badly needed.

And another thing to consider… we may need that unity and that structure before 2016. These recent decisions have quite a bit of teeth in them and the way they’re certain to be enforced by the Obama Administration is pretty clear, at least to me.

Laura Rambeau Lee, Right Reason: Those of us who actually care enough about our country to follow politics have come to the realization that both the Democrat and Republican Party no longer represent the American people. Unfortunately, while we grew up, went to work, raised our families, and pursued our personal version of the American Dream, the “trusted servants” we elected to protect our rights and interests were pursuing their own agendas. When we finally realized what was happening we got involved and worked very hard to get professed “conservative” Republicans elected, only to be bitterly disappointed once they took office.

We now know that no one, or very few, of our elected officials are working and looking out for our interests. The Democrat Party has been infiltrated with progressives bent on destroying everything that has made America great, in particular the middle class. The Republicans are no better, beholden to big corporations and bankers, also at the expense of the middle class. The government has become a massive wealth redistribution machine through the confiscatory theft of our hard earned wages via numerous tax and regulatory policies.

After last week’s Supreme Court decisions, it has become even more apparent that activist judges allow their political leanings to color their decisions instead of considering the cases before them with strict scrutiny and interpretation of the Constitution. We are no longer a nation that follows the rule of law or respects the will of the people or state’s rights.

We do need a third party and I would support one. The question is do we have enough time to turn everything around, and who would stand for us and be our voice.

Bookworm Room: To put it bluntly, I think that the Republican Party sucks eggs. It does not represent conservatives. Instead, as James Taranto long-ago said, it represents Leftists who have a slight edge on Democrats when it comes to fiscal conservativism. The GOPers are on board with every single Progressive idea — they just think that we ought to be a little more responsible about paying as we travel down The Road to Serfdom.

Having said that, I think true conservatives lack the critical mass to create a meaningful third party, especially with a pivotal election less than a year and a half away. Moreover, in this technologically driven age, the Republican Party has the infrastructure, and that’s something that can’t quickly be replicated either.

What I’d like to see is a coup without the Republican Party. Not having previously been of a revolutionary frame of mind, I’m not quite sure how to go about doing this, but I would certainly begin with fighting vigorously in the Republican primaries to destroy every RINO, starting with Boehner and McConnell.

Interestingly, an idea that has been picking up more and more traction in the comments section at my own blog is the feeling that, true to his Chicago roots, Obama has been blackmailing people like Boehner, Roberts, and McConnell. Indeed, my readers feel that the prosecution against Hastert was a little warning to all three of them to toe the Obama line with both the trade deal and the Obamacare ruling.

I have to admit that this idea, crazy though it is, seems more and more feasible lately. It certainly explains a lot of the insanity going on at the highest level of Republican governance, including Trey Gowdy’s peculiar inept and slow Benghazi investigation.

It was Sherlock Holmes who said when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. Either that, or I’m getting even more crazy than the Leftists.

The Glittering Eye: In political science there’s something called “Duverger’s law”. That’s the observed tendency of all non-proportional representation, “first past the post” representative democracies to become two party systems. The implication is that any third party is strictly a temporary phenomenon–it won’t be able to stay around long enough to gain any real influence. Add to that the reality that when the electorate is closely divided between the two surviving parties a third party tends to throw elections towards the party it is least like and you’ve got a pretty substantial argument against a third party.

Forty-five years ago I read a very interesting history of the New York State Conservative Party that outlined the circumstances peculiar to New York that made its creation a sensible move and articulated the party’s role: to nudge the Republican Party, in New York at the time very much more liberal than it is now (remember John Lindsay?), in a direction more to its liking. Unless and until we go to a proportional representation system that’s the role I’d see for any third party and I think the Tea Party is filling that role pretty effectively for the Republicans.

Don Surber: Meh.

Ask Marion: It is absolutely time for the GOP to go, as did the Whig party, whom they replaced!

The GOP leadership has stabbed their base, as well as the American people in general, in the back and has sold out to the ruling elite, as have the Democrats. For anyone who doubts that or does not keep up with the day to day treachery in Washington, D.C. please read: The Time For Changing Is Now. The time for change ”is” now, and in order to save America and what freedoms we have left, the change must take place swiftly in the form of not a 3rd party but rather a new replacement party, nullifying the GOP.

The creation of a 3rd party while leaving the GOP in place would just weaken the ability of average Americans to fight for and win back what the Constitution gives us. A new party must replace the Republican party. It is something I have fought supporting for a long time, but the past couple of weeks have proven that we cannot wait any longer.

As Sarah Palin said when she was asked this same question. “;I do not wish to leave the Republican Party, but if they leave me…?!?” Well their leadership seems to be leaving all of us, leaving me no choice but to support a new party to replace them!

Wolf Howling: It is time for a lot of things. One is a complete restructuring of our completely out of control courts. Two is a requirement that no regulation pass into effect until voted on by our elected representatives As to time for a third party, under normal circumstance, the answer would be a resounding yes. The Republican hierarchy are leading the way in enacting Obama’s second term agenda. Having voted Republicans into office in what was a historic wave election, they promptly rolled over and played dead. It is long past time for a third party. Our current crop of Republican congresscritters, as currently constituted, are a fifth column.

That said, we are on the knife’s edge of being so far transformed by Obama and the left, that to support a third party now would be to kiss America – the America envisioned by our Founders and written into our Constitution – goodbye forever. We need to vote for the most conservative candidate – and that appears to me to be either Ted Cruz or Carly Fiorina. We then have to hope against hope that it actually makes a difference in the direction our country is headed.

Well, there you have it.

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum. And remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.

Why Potato Haters Must Apologize to the Irish NOW!

Via LiveLeak (with minor editing)

TRIGGER WARNING: During a discussion earlier today, someone posted this meme. I suppose in an effort to make light of the perpetual outrage and offense that permeates our culture. But I think, instead, this heartless and callous individual only demonstrated the need for the PC police.

Potato-Offense

You might think it’s fun to joke about this potato. But have you considered how this image might trigger someone like myself, with Irish ancestry, because it reminds us of the potato famine? Also, the potato is brown and dirty and it grows in the ground—which could easily be construed as a statement that brown-skinned people are dirty and live in caves.

potato-famine-print

Meanwhile, people from Idaho are likely to be offended because this image appropriates their culture and makes a mockery of it. It might be a big laugh to you. But remember that this potato is also a visual image, which is certain to make the visually impaired feel excluded. Not to mention that a potato is a spherical, three-dimensional object. If you stop to think for one second, you might see how this could traumatize those who struggle with depth perception, and those who are geometrically challenged. This says nothing of the trauma it will surely impose on the starch-intolerant community.

Idaho-Spud-GIF

Obviously—but I’m sure you all knew this—potatoes are originally indigenous to the Andes mountain region; so this picture could quite easily cause emotional stress to the peoples of that area who feel they don’t get enough credit for cultivating the potato for so many centuries, before privileged white Americans stole it. So, yeah, have your laugh, you bigots. But think about what kind of harm a provocative photo like this might do to all of these groups.

potato-Andes

As you can clearly see, everything truly is offensive. And everyone’s feelings are hurt. So stop saying things, thinking things, or communicating thoughts of any kind to anyone. It’s the only way to make sure everyone is safe.


From the editor: We here at TRP would like to express our sincere apologies to those of you who might spell potato “potatoe.” This was truly thoughtless and mean-spirited on the author’s part. We have decided to ban any further submissions from this individual. If you have been personally hurt or offended by this gross oversight, or perceive any intentional microaggression, please contact us immediately. We will send out a free gender-neutral virtual hugs kit with instructions on how to deal with starchy microaggressions—without unwittingly ingesting any GMOs produced by imperialistic, patriarchal corporations.

Why Democrats Are Still the Party of Slavery

By: Brent Parrish

It has always floored me how the Republican Party seemingly allows the Democrats and the Left to paint them as racists. What amazes me even more is how successful the Democrats have been at rewriting their own sordid past—blaming the GOP for the crimes they themselves are guilty of. But that’s an old leftist tactic: always blame the enemy for the very same crimes they themselves are guilty of. This tried-and true tactic puts the other side on the defensive. The solution is to reject the premise outright and go on the offensive!

For example, the Left really doesn’t want anybody to know the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as the “Abolitionist Party.” Modern timelines concerning the “Abolitionist Movement” rarely include this all-important fact.

Another historical fact the Left would prefer to keep dead and buried … out of the roughly 4,500 who were killed at the end of KKK ropes, approximately 1,300 were white Republicans. Almost one out of four lynchings that occurred in the United States were perpetrated against white Republicans.

And then there’s my favorite historical revision often hurled by leftists at those who point out the racist history of the Democratic Party: the parties switched sides. I like how Bill Whittle addresses the whole “the parties switched sides” meme. Whittle uses the analogy of two football teams who switch uniforms at half-time:

In other words, if Florida is beating Florida State 60-0 at half-time, and then the Gators come out in the second half and score 72 more points … well, the Florida State fan says the Seminoles really won the game, because at half time both teams went into the locker room and they switched uniforms.

I can’t tell you how many times liberals have told me that back in the 60s the Dixiecrats automagically became Republicans. The fact of the matter is only a handful of Dixiecrats switched sides; most of them remained Dixiecrats for life.

Concerning the whitewashing of the Democratic Party’s history, Mona Charen writes:

The Democrats have been sedulously rewriting history for decades. Their preferred version pretends that all of the Democratic racists and segregationists left their party and became Republicans starting in the 1960s. How convenient. If it were true that the South began to turn Republican due to Lyndon Johnson’s passage of the Civil Rights Act, you would expect that the Deep South, the states most associated with racism, would have been the first to move. That’s not what happened. The first southern states to trend Republican were on the periphery: North Carolina, Virginia, Texas, Tennessee, and Florida. (George Wallace lost these voters in his 1968 bid.) The voters who first migrated to the Republican Party were suburban, prosperous, “New South” types. The more Republican the South has become, the less racist.

Confirmation Bias

Confirmation Bias

But here’s the real problem, as far as I’m concerned: facts don’t matter to many leftists. It’s all about perception. A classic example of twisting reality to conform to a political agenda was the death of Michael Brown, who was shot and killed by a white police officer, Darren Wilson, in Ferguson, Missouri. When it was all said and done, overwhelming evidence pointed to the fact that Michael Brown did not have his hands up when he was shot and killed; but, instead, had attacked Officer Darren Wilson and attempted to grab his sidearm. Of course the facts didn’t stop the “progressives” from perpetuating the “hands up, don’t shoot” meme. It didn’t matter to many on the Left that the evidence didn’t support their slogan; their excuse was that it “raised awareness” of police brutality, despite the fact the whole “awareness-raising” exercise was based upon a lie.

It has always appeared to me that the Democratic Party was incensed and bitter over the fact that slavery was abolished in America. So, since the Democrats could no longer keep blacks in literal chains as slaves, they invented virtual chains to enslave black Americans, i.e., welfare and the ghetto … the liberal plantation.

Like President Lyndon Baynes Johnson once said, “[W]e’ve got to give them [blacks] something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.” For 100 years the Democrats didn’t want civil rights for black Americans to pass. But they sure want to make you think they did! The Democrats have never apologized for slavery, segregation, or the destruction of the black family.

When an individual becomes utterly dependent on another person or group to provide all of their emotional, spiritual and physical needs, that individual has given away all of their power. They are allowing another person or persons the ability to pull the proverbial rug out from under them at any given moment. It is a form of slavery—plain and simple. Furthermore, the dependent individual is held down, unable to rise above the level of the person or persons to which they have become dependent upon. I call that evil.

What is seemingly never mentioned by the Left is the fact that rights come with responsibilities. But with responsibility comes true freedom! When a person says to another, “Don’t fret your little heart; I will take care of you” … that is a form of hatred, if you ask me. It’s nothing short of a power-trip. And one must ask, to whose benefit? Cui bono?

The video by AlfonZo Rachel that I’ve included in this article received some interesting replies on YouTube. One comment is worth noting:

YouTube-Comment-AlFonZo-Rachel-Democrat-Racism

I think the YouTube commenter quoted above raises an all-important point: some people are just unmoved by facts. They revel in their ignorance; they celebrate their foolishness. The truth just does not matter to some people. Others are diabolical fools with a dubious or nefarious agenda. Whether it’s a fool or an apparatchik, one thing is for sure: there’s no talking sense to them; there’s no chance of engaging in meaningful dialogue with them.  They only want to demonize and castigate those who disagree with them, for whatever reason or purpose. There are those who have an agenda; and they will forward that agenda come hell or high-water. Quite frankly, it is not worth the time, energy or effort to try and engage in debate or dialog with fools or nefarious individuals. It is an exercise in utter futility. They simply must be defeated. End of story.

Conversely, as the commenter quoted above states, there are those who are willing to engage in meaningful dialog or debate; they are willing to listen; they are earnestly seeking answers, i.e., the truth. That is where I will focus my energy and efforts.

Every relationship is a two-way street. Good relationships are built on a foundation of mutual respect. But when one side insists on engaging in demagoguery and demonization in order to further their own questionable and divisive ends, that’s hardly what I would call mutual respect. That’s what I call hatred. And to bow down to hatred is the quintessential definition of slavery.

Reds, Racism, and Obama

YouTube/USA Survival: Professor Gerald Horne, the black scholar who revealed Obama’s personal relationship with Communist Party operative Frank Marshall Davis, is speaking in detail on the record. Professor Horne says that while the relationship is noteworthy and should have been uncovered by the press, there is no evidence that Davis turned Obama “into some sort of Manchurian candidate.” Horne also discusses the Charleston massacre, the killer’s alleged international connections, the history of slavery in the U.S., and whether we need a new Congressional panel to investigate extremism in America, including the Communist Party.

Mark Levin: FBI Files Reveal Valerie Jarrett’s Communist Family

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
Noisy Room

My take at Right Wing News:

EXPOSED: FBI Files Reveal That Valerie Jarrett’s Father Was A Soviet Spy

Trevor Loudon has been saying this for many years – since at least 2008. Suddenly, everyone seems to think this is a revelation. Valerie Jarrett was born in Shiraz, Iran to American parents, James E. Bowman and Barbara Taylor Bowman. She spent the first five years of her life in Iran before her family moved to London. Following a year in London, the family moved to Chicago’s elite neighborhood, Hyde Park. Her father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, was a one time political associate of Communist Party USA activist and Obama mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. Valerie Jarrett is the great niece of prominent Democratic Party leftist Vernon Jordan. Her maternal grandfather was Robert Taylor, the first black chairman of the Chicago Housing Authority. Jarrett’s father also had deep ties to communists and was a soviet spy. Valerie Jarrett’s family is just rife with communist and Islamic connections. She may be Obama’s right hand consigliere, but I guarantee you she would never pass a real background check.

Valerie Jarrett

From Pat Dollard:

Excerpted from Judicial Watch: Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) files obtained by Judicial Watch reveal that the dad, maternal grandpa and father-in-law of President Obama’s trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, were hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government.

Jarrett’s dad, pathologist and geneticist Dr. James Bowman, had extensive ties to Communist associations and individuals, his lengthy FBI file shows. In 1950 Bowman was in communication with a paid Soviet agent named Alfred Stern, who fled to Prague after getting charged with espionage. Bowman was also a member of a Communist-sympathizing group called the Association of Internes and Medical Students. After his discharge from the Army Medical Corps in 1955, Bowman moved to Iran to work, the FBI records show.

According to Bowman’s government file the Association of Internes and Medical Students is an organization that “has long been a faithful follower of the Communist Party line” and engages in un-American activities. Bowman was born in Washington D.C. and had deep ties to Chicago, where he often collaborated with fellow Communists. JW also obtained documents on Bowman from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) showing that the FBI was brought into investigate him for his membership in a group that “follows the communist party line.” The Jarrett family Communist ties also include a business partnership between Jarrett’s maternal grandpa, Robert Rochon Taylor, and Stern, the Soviet agent associated with her dad.

Jarrett’s father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, was also another big-time Chicago Communist, according to separate FBI files obtained by JW as part of a probe into the Jarrett family’s Communist ties. For a period of time Vernon Jarrett appeared on the FBI’s Security Index and was considered a potential Communist saboteur who was to be arrested in the event of a conflict with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). His FBI file reveals that he was assigned to write propaganda for a Communist Party front group in Chicago that would “disseminate the Communist Party line among…the middle class.” Keep reading

Notice not only the Iranian ties, but the Russian affiliations. Both Vernon Jarrett and Frank Marshall Davis were on the Security Index as possible spies and saboteurs for the USSR. Valerie Jarrett is the real power behind the visage of Barack Obama. He does not do anything without her advice and consent. She sits in on virtually every high-ranking meeting, even if that means displacing a general or a cabinet member. She is a Progressive/Marxist extremist and many of the horrific changes that have occurred in America since the Obama regime came into being, can be directly tied to her machinations. Jarrett has connections to many Communist and extremist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood. Not only is she infamous in Chicago for being a corrupt slum lord, she was hip deep in the Fast and Furious scandal among others. It would seem that the Jarrett family coat of arms is mostly one shade of red or another.
