DETERIORATING RACE RELATIONS UNDER OBAMA

Are there deteriorating race relations under the current president? Absolutely! And who’s to blame? The current president, the current administration, and “the left” in general.

Obama to blame for deteriorating race relations.

Deteriorating race relations in America are this man’s fault!

I’m reviewing an article on aol.com discussing how racist commenters on Fox Cable News attacked Malia Obama after the cable news network ran an article indicating that she would be attending Harvard University after taking a year off from her studies following high school graduation. After the unacceptable comments appeared, FNC did remove the comment section of that article.

Of course, the “tolerant left” is going to call all those who watch Fox News every bad name they can possibly think up. Racist, bigoted, ignorant, low-life, etc. But before I can form an opinion and give my two cents worth, I need to know how many comments were made before FNC removed the comment section and how many of those comments were inappropriate. While the “tolerant left” doesn’t care about facts and statistics, I do.

Remember when former president Jimmy Carter was diagnosed with brain cancer? Fox News ran an article about the diagnosis on its Facebook site. Then, numerous far left websites published articles regarding the hateful vitriolic comments made by those horrible Fox News followers. Well, I found the article. There were approximately 2,000 comments. I took the time to skim about 1,000 of those comments and found only six that were inappropriate. Furthermore, numerous replies were made to those inappropriate comments telling the commenters that they were out of line. Did the “tolerant left” lie? Not really because there were some inappropriate comments. But to accuse those who watch FNC and follow their website and Facebook sites unflattering names is just wrong.

Having said the above, I am noticing more use of the “N” word and other unflattering words when racial issues are being discussed. Why is this when during the Reagan, Bush 1 and Bush 2 administrations, race relations in the U.S. seemed to be optimal? It’s the democrats aka the “tolerant left.” In order to garner votes for their candidates, the left preys upon blacks and other minorities, telling them that they are still considered second class citizens and haven’t reached their full potential even though it’s been a half century since the Civil Rights Act was signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson. And why haven’t they reached their full potential? It’s because of “whitey.” The white establishment, particularly white conservatives, have kept you down because they are all prejudice. They don’t like people of color so they won’t allow you to succeed.

Race relations have certainly deteriorated since Barak Obama has taken office. Of course, the left will tell you that it’s because the whites, particularly the Republicans are prejudice and can’t stand the thought of having a black president. Well, that’s just BS and the left knows it. Besides the current president of the United States is half white. Want to make a black Democrat mad? Point out to them that you (if you’re white) have the same in common with the president with respect to ethnicity as they do. Black democrats don’t like to hear that.

Barak Obama and the “tolerant left” are 100% to blame for deteriorating race relations in the United States! Barak Obama injects race into everything he possibly can. And even though he’s half white, he always takes the side of the black person or persons, the facts of the situation be damned. And that shouldn’t be surprising to anyone because Democrats don’t care about facts or statistics. All they seem to be able to do is get emotional and accuse Republicans of hating minorities, hating the poor, and hating the current president because he’s black (excuse me, he’s half black).

Barak Obama is constantly denigrating Republicans and blaming them for everything that has gone wrong during his time as president. When, in fact, it’s his own policies and political philosophies that have caused things to do so wrong in this country since his inauguration. Furthermore, anything that the left deems as racist, even though it may not be remotely related to race, is now considered racism. When this president was elected, I fully anticipated that those who didn’t agree with him on the issues and didn’t fall in lockstep with his policies would be considered racist. However, I didn’t anticipate that if you cheered for the Denver Broncos with white quarterback Peyton Manning to beat the Carolina Panthers with black quarterback Cam Newton, you would be considered a racist.

People are fed up with this constant talk of race and ethnicity a half century after the Civil Rights Act of 1964. People are also fed up with those who get their feelings hurt and demand that a safe space be provided to them when they hear something they don’t particularly like. And “safe spaces?” What a crock!

Then there are the demands that all references to the Civil War be removed and erased from history, including the renaming of buildings that were named after Confederate heroes. Also, we can’t teach our children how this great nation was founded because many of the founding fathers owned slaves. This has led to many young people supporting Communist Bernie Sanders for president. And while I have been accused of racism because I don’t eat turnip greens and collards, a young white guy was assaulted by a black female because he wore his hair in dreadlocks.

What is it people, what do you want? I don’t think you know what you want. You’re told by your minority leaders that the Republicans are all prejudice against you when a Republican holds the office of the presidency, even though race relations are always much better when a Republican is president. Then when a Democrat holds the office of the presidency, you’re told by your minority leaders that the reason the Democrat president can’t get you the things you want because of those racist Republicans.

To all minorities out there, as long as you listen to the current president or anyone from the “tolerant left,” you’re will stay frustrated and spend more time bellyaching as to why you’re not achieving. Instead, become an individual and get out there and work for what you want to achieve.

This nation is in bad shape, very bad shape. Race relations, among other things, have been deteriorating to the point that it may take several decades to restore them to where they were before Barak Obama assumed the office of the presidency. Many folks, including me, have individually worked on making race irrelevant except for maybe identification purposes. And it saddens me greatly that one, Barak Obama, and his liberal henchmen have destroyed our work in 7-1/2 years.

I HATE THE WORD HATE AND ITS DERIVITIVES

When I was growing up, I was taught that the word, “hate,” was a terrible word and should be used only sparingly. You shouldn’t say you hate somebody, you should say you don’t care for somebody. Instead of saying I hate beets, you should say, I don’t care for beets.

In this day and age, though, “hate” and its derivatives have become mainstream words. Now how did that happen? If you’re expecting me to say that the liberals started the “hate” phenomenon, you are correct!

Dating back to the 20th century, liberals embraced the emotion of “hate.” I can recall the animal rights group, PETA, throwing buckets of blood on people who dared wear a fur coat, made from real animal skins. I also remember these same folks attacking laboratories in protest of using animals for testing of various items from cosmetics to over-the-counter drugs. These people were vicious, letting nothing stop them in their quest to destroy anything and anyone who disagreed with them. Instead of approaching their so-called adversaries and seeking to address their concerns, they destroyed property that wasn’t theirs and made many enemies.

Shortly thereafter, we started hearing the term, “hate speech” thrown around by those on the left. While I’m not exactly sure what constitutes hate speech and the liberals change the definition on the fly, I believe it has something to do with what liberals consider disparaging talk with regard to minorities, particularly when it comes to race and sexual preference. Of course, any denigrating speech about southern, white, conservative, straight, Christians is perfectly allowable because southern, white, conservative, straight Christians are so terrible that they deserve it. This was the beginning of Orwellianism in this nation. While you couldn’t be prosecuted for what the liberals considered hate speech, you could certainly be slandered by those on the left.

In the nineties, we also started hearing about “hate crimes” and what constituted a hate crime. If a white person murdered a black person, was it because that person was black? And if so, you were guilty of what the liberals termed a “hate crime” and that “hate crime” was subject to punishment more severe than a “non-hate crime” murder. It became the job of the prosecution to get inside the assailants head and determine what he or she was thinking at the time of the murder. I do have trouble with the “hate crime” concept. How is murdering someone because you don’t like their skin color any different from murdering them for any other reason? Ask a liberal? Again, this is another Orwellian concept of attempting to get into one’s head and determine one’s thoughts. Your thoughts are not your own anymore.

Now, the word, “haters,” is used every day in common place situations. If someone is critical of your efforts, that person is a hater. Of course, liberals commonly accuse conservatives of being haters if they don’t agree with the liberal philosophy of governing or disagree with the current liberal president’s policies. If you’re not for government run healthcare, you hate the sick; if you’re against entitlement spending, you hate the poor; if you’re against affirmative action, you hate minorities; and the list goes on.

One thing that particularly annoys me about liberals and their love affair with the word “hate” and its derivatives, is the way the accuse you of being a hater if you don’t like the current president. Look at how many liberals hated George W. Bush and said terrible things about him. But just let a conservative say he or she doesn’t agree with the current president’s policies, the liberal automatically label him or her as a hater and a racist. They don’t even attempt to engage in a political dialogue.

I made a comment once that it was Democrats that actually looked down on women and advocated paying for all birth control methods for all women because women couldn’t control their libidos. For this comment, I was accused of hating all government programs and those who were recipients of those government programs including Medicare, Medicaid, SSI, etc. Talk about a stretch! So, if you disagree with one government entitlement program, you’re accused by liberals of hating all entitlement programs and those individuals who are recipients of those programs.

If you come to the conclusion that it’s actually the liberals who are haters, you are right. They invented the concepts of hate-speech, hate crimes, and don’t hesitate to call those who disagree with them haters. I live in central Alabama, yes central Alabama and never have I head the current president called the N-word (that would be hate-speech to the liberals). My fellow Republicans do not agree with his policies and most don’t like his disrespect for the American people. His wife is not a favorite of a lot of folks around here; but the root of their dislike is the comments she made to the effect that this was the first time she had ever been proud of her country when her husband became the Democratic nominee for president prior to the 2008 presidential elections.

Liberals don’t want to hear any of this, but they are the actual haters in this nation. The depths of their hatred towards the poor, the middle class, and minorities is so profound that their goals are to keep these people “in their place” by controlling every aspect of their lives. They call the rest of us haters in order to direct the attention away from themselves.

They will not stop until they have control over all of the people they hate, including the poor, the middle class, minorities, Christians, and white people. Should we even try to stop them? One day, we will have to in order to maintain the American way of life. Drastic measures may have to be employed. Are we willing to do what is necessary?

THE RACIST, BIGOTED POLICY OF AFFIRMATIVE ACTION

I reside in Central Alabama, one of the major Republican strong-holds in the nation. Yet we do have a lot of Democrats here. Furthermore, it’s been my observation that the Democrats who live here are more difficult to deal with and have a reasonable discussion with than, let’s say, Democrats in Massachusetts. Why is that? I tend to think it’s because they are vastly outnumbered here in the American Southeast. I’ve noted that some of them refer to themselves as bright blue dots in a sea of red. I really think they have a complex about it. They can’t win an argument on the facts, so they resort to hurling insults and name-calling when challenged. These “bright blue dots” are always pontificating about all of the injustices in this nation and how the Republicans hate the poor, hate minorities, hate the elderly…yada, yada, yada. I’ve posted about this and indicated that it’s nothing but BS and cited reasons why.

One of the things that I am accused of is being racist when I don’t support the current president’s policies. I’m also called a racist when I say that I don’t support affirmative action. Duh! Affirmative action is one of the most racist and bigoted practices in the United States of America today. It says to minorities that you’re not good enough to make it in the “white man’s world.” You’re inferior. And because you’re inferior, we’re going to help you because we’re your friends. While we don’t have twenty acres and a mule to give you, we’re going to give you better things. We’re going to lower the standards for you so you can get into colleges, graduate programs, medical school, law school, etc. without having to score as high on the entrance exams as your white counter parts. We’re also going to allow you get loans for houses, cars, etc. with lower credit scores than your white counterparts.

However, when you get that medical degree and become a doctor, don’t expect me or any or my family members to patronize you. Also, when you are able to get the loan to buy that fancy house in that fancy neighborhood, just make sure that you purchase a fancy house in a fancy neighborhood that’s a long, long way from my fancy house and my fancy neighborhood.

A number of years ago, I was having a political discussion with a cousin who is now deceased. This particular cousin was a strong Democrat, highly intelligent, but in effect, didn’t know squat. When I indicated that I was not a proponent of affirmative action, she promptly replied that her husband worked with several outstanding blacks. “So,” I replied. “What does that have to do with affirmative action?” She looked at me funny. Sure, I could have jerked her chain a while longer, but I chose not to. I just explained that if her husband’s colleagues were so great, then why did they need affirmative action. My cousin was doing what a lot of folks, especially liberals, do. She was confusing affirmative action with equal opportunity when the two are nothing like.

With equal opportunity you are encouraged to submit your resume and it will be evaluated along with everyone else’s resume and not with regards to race, gender, ethnicity, etc. With equal opportunity, you are submitted a test to take and have to score at a certain level to go to the next level. On the other hand, with affirmative action, we’re going to do you favors because we’re your friends. But in actuality, you’re inferior, so you need our help. And when you accept our help, you will be beholden to us for the rest of your life. But again, don’t expect me to have dinner with you or invite you into my home.

In addition to my Democrat cousin, I had a very liberal/Democrat aunt who is also now deceased. Talk about looking down your nose at minorities, she was the poster child for it. Of course, she was all for social programs that purportedly helped these inferior people. When I told her that I had a lot of black friends and we have dinner together and even take trips together, I thought she was going to have a stroke. But according to liberals/Democrats, I’m the racist bigot because I judge people by the content of their character and not the color of their skin. I’m the racist bigot because, if there’s a house for sale next door to my house, I tell any and all of my friends who are looking for a house, to “check it out.”

Another time, a Democrat friend of mine, who is black, told me that she didn’t know of anyone who got their job, house, car, education through affirmative action. Well, she just made my point. If no one is “benefitting” from affirmative action, they obviously don’t need it. So, let’s do away with it.
