Racists, Racists, Everywhere!

Speaking on MSNBC on Tuesday, civil rights activist Julian Bond tried to defend the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups by saying:

“I mean, here are a group of people who are admittedly racist, who are overtly political, who tried as best they can to harm President Obama in every way they can.”

“[The Tea Party] is the Taliban wing of American politics and we all ought to be a little worried about them.”

This kind of slanderous lying deserves to be answered, so I tracked down Julian Bond’s email address at American University and sent him the following letter:

Racists, Racists, Everywhere!

Dear Julian Bond,

You routinely throw charges of racism at people you don’t even know. This is a strategy you use to discredit, in the minds of others, people with whom you disagree politically. Since you have no evidence that most Tea Party members are racists, it means that you are in essence publicly bearing false witness against thousands of people. You are therefore, guilty of breaking one of God’s Ten Commandments. Surely that cannot be a good thing.

It would be like Walter Williams saying that Democrats should all be investigated because as everyone knows they are all lying, cheating adulterers.

But unlike you, Walter Williams is an honest, classy guy and would never bear false witness against people with whom he disagrees politically. He argues ideas and uses facts.

I am a white, conservative male who has black heroes. You cannot explain this. But I can assure you, you are not one of them.

Another subject: Yesterday Chris Matthews was critical of President Obama on his TV show. In your twisted world this absolutely makes Matthews a white racist. Will you try to get Chris fired or ask the I.R.S. to audit him?

MSNBC “Progressives” Continue To Hack Away At The Traditional Family Unit.

MSNBC “expert” and Tulane University college professor Melissa Harris-Perry thinks your children are not your responsibility, but rather the responsibility of the “community.” (See video below) Of course, her choice of the word “community” is just a euphemism for the state or the government. She also talks about “investments” in the children. What she is advocating is for more resources and responsibility to be shifted away from parents and families and into government-run programs for the purpose of indoctrinating children with a left-wing, statist ideology. It’s an old idea that has been practiced before with disastrous results by the communist party under Josef Stalin, and the national socialist/fascists in Germany led by Adolph Hitler. The frightening thing about this is that MSNBC produced this promotional video for viewer consumption and therefore is giving its tacit approval to this crazy notion that parents are not responsible for their children, and that your children will be better off if raised by government “experts.” MSNBC and Harris-Perry are couching destructive ideas with nice sounding phrases, good looks and slick marketing. Der Staat will die Kontrolle über Ihre Kinder.

Putting aside the fact that Harris-Perry’s expressed vision of child education is simpatico with the child rearing practices of the tyrants and mass murderers of the 20th century; there is no evidence that parents who take responsibility for educating and raising their children do a poorer job of it than parents who show little interest. In fact the opposite is certainly true. One important reason Asian students often academically outshine their non-Asian peers is because their parents are more involved in their children’s education and demand excellence from them.

Another reason Ms. Harris-Perry’s idea is a bad one is the existence of the phenomenon called “diffusion of responsibility.” In large groups, where no one has been assigned personal responsibility or made to be “in charge” (unlike a parent who is motivated to assume responsibility for their children due to moral obligations or even for personal, selfish reasons), everyone tends to assume that someone else is responsible, in this case, for raising the children. This means that in Harris-Perry’s world, many more children will “slip through the cracks” because they will not get the same love and attention that only parents can give. Parents have a direct vested interest in the success and well-being of their children. Collective groups will never have or feel that same connection to individual children and therefore are a very poor substitute indeed. Guard your children, people. Be aware the Left is coming after them. You better fight them at every step of the way. Do not let them implement their crazy ideas in your communities or at any other level. Get involved and stay involved. Don’t be afraid to challenge them publicly.

What Voter Fraud?

The Liberal Media is always quick to accuse Republicans of suppressing minority votes at election time, yet curiously they are never able to produce any evidence of this.

I wonder if the same media will be interested in a story that broke recently in Hamilton County, Ohio where an African-American woman has publicly admitted to voting at least twice for Barack Obama in the November election. She may have actually voted up to six times and is being investigated by the Hamilton County Board of elections. Her name is Melowese Richardson and you can watch the video of her “mea culpa” at the end of this story.

When the likes of MSNBC and other propaganda outlets and even attorney general Eric Holder promote this voter suppression lie about Republicans they are subverting our democratic process. It creates mistrust and suspicion among minorities.  Is it any surprise then that Melowese Richardson rationalizes voting more than once for Barack Obama because as she says Mr. Obama “has a right to sit as President of the United States.” Her assertion of that “right” is nothing but a product of the entitlement mentality that has become so pervasive in our country. Does she not realize that no one has a right to the office of the Presidency unless they are legally elected in conformity with the election laws of our land?  Does she think voting for the President of the United States is like voting for the next American Idol, where teenieboppers routinely vote multiple times for their favorite? Ms. Richardson sounds like a smart lady and I think she knows better.

Every election cycle there are people who are convicted of voter fraud, yet the liberal media for the most part turns a blind eye because most people indicted for voter fraud happen to be Democrats. Don’t believe me? – I have linked to examples of voter fraud stories below. It’s obvious to me that the Liberal Media doesn’t care about voter fraud if it helps their side. They are an absolute disgrace and by their lies and propaganda about Republican voter suppression and then silence when real voter fraud happens, they show they are willing to preside over the subversion and disintegration of our once great republic.

We need to start getting serious about voter fraud in this country before it’s too late and if Ms. Richardson is found guilty of voter fraud, she should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Let’s start by demanding that our lawmakers change the laws so that voters are required to show an ID when they show up at the polls. Don’t believe the left’s false argument that showing an ID puts an “undue burden” on minorities. C’mon! who is the left kidding? It’s hogwash! People routinely have to show their ID’s for everything from buying  six-packs to cashing checks to using their credit cards. Heck, you cannot get into an Obama fundraiser without a picture ID. Doesn’t that put an “undue burden” on the President’s minority supporters? The left’s argument against requiring voter ID’s should be mocked and ridiculed by every good person for the baloney that it is.

The investigation of Ms. Richardson has also revealed that she has been a poll worker for about 25 years. It makes one wonder if this is the first time she has voted more than once and what she has encouraged or allowed other voters to get away with at election time.

Lest I be accused of being racist, let me say this:

If you think I am unfairly picking on a little ol’ African-American lady you are mistaken on two counts. First, voter fraud should not be tolerated, period, no matter who commits it. And second, there are plenty of white people involved in voter fraud as you will see in the links below.

MSNBC’s Reign of Terror

Dr. Benjamin Rush, one of our great men, once wrote a friend:

“I agree with you in deriving our physical calamities from moral causes…. A bitter and unchristian spirit has likewise divided our citizens. We have not, it is true, erected a guillotine in our country, but we enjoy similar spectacles of cruelty in the destruction of public and private characters in our newspapers.” *

Things haven’t changed much, have they?

I’ve watched Maddow, Olberman, Matthews and others similar on MSNBC many, many times, so I don’t need anyone to tell me what to think about them. For those of you who have been told how horrible and racist Fox News is, but haven’t watched it for yourselves, you might want to take it upon yourselves to actually see if what you have been told is true. Give it at least two weeks. Fox News has excellent and fair reporting (not perfect). And they truly have nice, good and decent people working for them – they are not the rotten devils you have been told they are.

Some of you who watch MSNBC and other Liberal news outlets have been led to believe that most Republicans are racist. You have been lied to. Why? Because by demonizing their opponents, the left prevents people from listening to Republicans’ ideas, which may have merit. Another reason the left makes charges of racism is that it provokes in some people an immediate, prejudicial response, which requires no critical thinking. The trumped-up charges of racism and wars on women are nothing but propaganda meant to manipulate the feelings of certain groups. Independent, critical thinkers generally are not fooled by such propaganda. There is no Republican war on Gays, or Hispanics, or Women. These are all distractions meant to control these groups and maintain them as constituents in the Democrat party.

Why did MSNBC run the Rubio sipping water clip over 155 times? Answer: It’s part of a larger effort to neutralize an up and coming Hispanic conservative and make him look like a buffoon. It’s part of the left’s war on conservative minorities. That, is a real war. Many on the left show no respect for conservative minorities and heap nothing but disdain on them.

As far as our leaders go, we must not tolerate politicians who prefer to sow seeds of division, hatred and confusion, rather than discuss the difficult issues facing our country with well-reasoned and substantive arguments. The time they waste spewing their nonsense means less time spent offering solutions. Decent people do not try to manipulate others with false accusations of being homophobic, or racist or whatever.

Benjamin Rush’s observation about the media still applies today. Unfortunately, it appears we have learned nothing in the 220 years since he observed it. It’s time to stop once and for all the public name calling and character assassination that is so prevalent in our politics. We need to begin devoting only our intellects and all of our energies towards solving the dangerous problems that face our nation. That goes for Republicans too.

Our number one issue is economic, so lets start there. We need to revive the economy mainly through private, not public initiative. We must reduce government spending before the federal government becomes insolvent or destroys the value of our currency and our savings. We need fewer regulatory constraints on businesses. We must revise the tort system. If we do these things, there is no doubt in my mind that America will rise again. For that, I am sure, some will call me a racist.

For those of you who are not familiar with him, I would like to call your attention to that great man who was Benjamin Rush. Born in Philadelphia in 1746, Rush became a physician, patriot, author, educator, humanitarian and an early abolitionist. He was one among those brave men who pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor when they signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776. According to L. H. Butterfield, editor of Rush’s letters, “Rush’s fame sprang from his own vigorous and magnetic personality; from his substantial accomplishments in medicine, psychiatry, education, and social reform; from the great body of his published writings; from his gifts as a teacher and lecturer; and finally, from the letters he wrote to scores of friends, relatives, patients, pupils and colleagues on both sides of the Atlantic.”

“Long regarded by everyone except himself and perhaps a few other Philadelphians as the leading citizen of Philadelphia, the recipient of uncounted honors from his countrymen and from European courts and learned societies, Rush had achieved a reputation not surpassed by that of any other American physician for a century or more.”

Dear Reader: Please check back in the future for a page which I will wholly devote to Dr. Rush’s life and accomplishments.)
