FEELING GUILTY ABOUT BEING WHITE

As a political writer who must keep up with what’s current, I often read about such people, but I never thought I would have any contact with them.

Instead, I envisioned these folks as high academicians, giving lectures at institutes of higher learning and wandering through the halls and streets of places like UC Berkley, the University of Michigan, Brown University, Wellesley College, Radcliff, Harvard, Princeton, and Yale. They taught graduate level classes in psychology, sociology, and philosophy. For the men, outfits consisting of jeans, t-shirts and old out of style jackets were in order, along with running shoes or Birkenstock sandals, weather permitting, dating back to when Birkenstocks were actually in style. If you’ve ever had a pair, you know they never wear out. For the women, it was much the same except for the jackets, they wore cardigan sweaters. The men would almost always have beards and disheveled hair. Most of the women would be thin with mousy hair. Of course no makeup was ever worn, and fingernails would be short and unpainted. The cars would almost always be older Toyotas or Nissans, containing only the bare necessities. Because fossil fuels were evil, gas mileage was of the utmost importance. Occasionally, one might splurge on a Prius. All of them longed for the day when the use of fossil fuels would be eliminated entirely. It goes without saying that these types fell far to the left in the political spectrum. Businesses, large and small were evil to these men and women.

They longed for the day when the governments ran everything. There would be health care for everyone, healthy food and clean water for everyone plus everyone would have a home or apartment. Political correctness would rule, making speech limited. Guns would be prohibited resulting in very low crime rates since those with criminal tendencies would not have access to guns. Terrorist threats would be eliminated due to universal love, the lack of guns, and climate change solutions that had been put in place by the United States and other countries of the world.

Until then they would be forced to exist in this world full of gun owners, capitalists, Christians, racists, misogynists, homophobes, and the worst of them all, Republicans, also referred to as conservatives.

Of all the sins of the world, racism was the most insidious, fostering white privilege, sometimes referred to as white supremacy. Every white person was born with the racist seed in them and would have to fight their racist tendencies all of their lives. Because of this, white people would be responsible for atoning for this evil seed though feelings of guilt and the inability to enjoy life because as a white person because you don’t deserve that pleasure. Furthermore, you must treat people of color much, much differently than you treat your white contemporaries in order to avoid hurting them further. Life had already dealt them a major blow because of their skin color and you must engage in all forms of political correctness when interacting with them.

After reading a few white liberal guilt articles, I was amused. This couldn’t be real. No one, except for the mentally ill could possibly be this way. Of course, these “tolerant” leftists hate people like me. They pontificate about all the hate that permeates the world and preach to all of us that eliminating the hate will solve the problems of terrorism, crime, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia, and the worst of them all, racism. But they’re the ones who exude hate.

Much to my dismay, in the past month to six weeks, I have had the displeasure of communicating with two such folks through social media. So, these people do exist and are not that far removed from me.

Of course, you’re a racist if you don’t support Barak Obama’s policies. You can tell them until you’re blue in the face that it’s his policies you don’t agree with. You can further tell them that you have black friends, and patronize black-owned businesses, but it doesn’t matter to them. After 7-1/2 years of being called a racist because I didn’t support Obama’s policies and didn’t agree with him politically, I got fed up. No more Ms. Nice Girl! I put the ball back into their “oh so tolerant” court, telling them that unless they could point to anything I’ve said or written that denigrates this president due to his skin color, they best not hurl the racism accusation at me. Some liberals I’ve sent slithering back under their rock.

Earlier this week, I decided to get into a liberal thread where the “tolerant left” was ripping Melania Trump, wife of Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, to pieces for the alleged parts of her July 18 speech at the Republican National Convention, that were very similar to parts of Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech at the Democrat National Convention. The originator of the thread just couldn’t understand why no Republican friends of his had come forth with opinions on the alleged plagiarism. Of course, there were snide remarks about Republicans is the post. Remember, this person is a liberal.

My first post was as follows: “I’ve tried to ignore anything Michelle Obama has said after her comment, ‘for the first time in my live, I am proud of my country.’ Although I do remember something about going out and eating fried chicken and some anti-white remarks made to the 2015 graduates of Tuskegee University. I barely remember what I had for lunch yesterday, much less something someone I don’t like said in 2008. I have linked an article about it on my political website and reviewed the two passages that are similar. And that’s what they are…similar. Plus we’re talking a few lines from a fifteen or so minute speech. If that’s all the dems can pick out of the opening night at the convention, I guess the opening night was successful.

A so-called “white guilt” liberal commented to me, “Hi, Nancy, racist much?”

I lit into this person, giving them name of this website and told him what I tell other liberals who have accused me a racism because I don’t like the current president’s policies. This person then indicated that my attitude and reaction demonstrated that I harbored racism. Subsequently, this person indicated that he was prejudiced and racist also, but he tries to intellectually resist it. He admitted that he had work to do since he “brings prejudice to the table.”

This person wanted to help me and pointed out that the mentioning of fried chicken, Tuskegee, and anti-white with respect to Michelle Obama makes me a racist. In other words, pointing out that some of Michelle’s speech to the 2015 Tuskegee grads trashed white people was racist. According to this poster, Michelle Obama should be allowed to say and do anything she pleases, I guess.

The poster went on to accuse me of immediately judging and convicting Michelle Obama due to how she said something in her spouse’s nomination party speech. I didn’t say anything about Michelle Obama’s (2008) speech other than I didn’t remember it. This person also indicated that I condemned the first lady for all eternity, except to remember only the things that she did that were wrong. Oh brother! I don’t like her and I don’t like what she stands for. I’m human, what’s wrong with that? I wouldn’t be surprised if this person had some choice things to say about Nancy Reagan back in the day. But wait! Nancy Reagan was white and that makes it okay to say bad things about her. But Michelle Obama is black, therefore saying negative things about her is not okay.

This person also accused me a being a “label-jacker.” I don’t know what that means and I haven’t taken the time to look it up. I carry the flag of all lives matter to misdirect, denigrate, or water down people of color’s desire to bring focus to what is likely a long-term oppressive cry for help.  The poster said that he/she wanted to help me because I carry prejudice in my heart and mind, indicating that with so many people accusing me of racism, that I should ponder it.

This person is a genuine certified loon; and not having time to stay in this thread, I left. Sure, I could have refuted his accusations, but what good would it have done? There’s no reasoning with these folks. The thread began with a discussion of the alleged plagiarism in Melania’s speech, which should have been nothing than a “nuts and bolts” online conversation. Of course, it evolved into what I described above. I later found out that this person only lives a few hours from me. People like this in the South! “I think I need my smelling salts.”

Unfortunately, there are many folks like this person and they have one vote just like I do. Here’s a few links to articles about these folks. It’s scary.

10 Ways White Liberals Perpetuate Racism.

The Anatomy of White Guilt

THEY REALLY THINK THEY’RE BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE, DON’T THEY?

Those who regularly read my writings know that I often refer to myself as an “unenlightened oaf.” This is because I often times have trouble connecting the dots with respect to liberal logic. Of course, I’m being whimsical and I don’t see anything wrong with that. Even though I call myself an “unenlightened oaf,” tests I have frequently taken through the course of my life have shown that I have an above average intelligence. I was smart enough to earn a degree from a major university, earn a highly respected professional certification in the insurance field, become a Microsoft Certified Professional in software development, and have successful careers in finance, insurance, and information technology. I still don’t know if the writing career is going to be successful. I make a lot of mistakes, though. I’m also a sinner, and continue to sin and fall short of the glory of God.

I have both liberal and conservative friends, but in thinking about my liberal friends, I don’t think I’ve ever known one of them to admit to making a mistake. I don’t think I’ve ever heard one of my liberal friends apologize for anything. Generally what I hear is them trying to put the blame on everyone but themselves. Now, I’m not saying that my liberal friends have never sincerely apologized for something or assumed ownership of a situation gone badly. I’ve just never heard one of my liberal friends apologize for anything.

I often post on forums and social media threads, both liberal and conservative. When I have posted on liberal forums that I will call any liberal who denigrates Dr. Ben Carson a racist, the liberals have gone crazy. They can’t possibly understand how they could be called racist. They’re liberals. Of course, they begin calling me names and continued to denigrate Dr. Carson.

In addition to thinking they’re Christ-like, they think they’re the smartest people on the planet, and studies have shown that the majority of academicians do fall on the left of the political spectrum. They think they know better than you do about how to run your lives. They know more about the food you should eat, the vehicle you should drive, the financial investments you should make, etc.

Having said all of the above, I’ve never known a liberal that could read and comprehend what he or she was reading. I can’t begin to estimate the times I’ve had to explain simple words to a liberal. The following is the drill. I have to explain what I’m saying at least twice, then the liberal responds, totally off subject. At that point, I usually get frustrated and abandon the thread. Yesterday, I responded to a “stupid liberal” article offering my opinion and was called a liar. An opinion is not a lie and I “hit” the responder with this, asking him/her to tell me where, in my post, I had lied. I have not received a response and I’m not holding my breath.

This leads me to another liberal activity, hurling insults and accusations. When they don’t like what you’re communicating, but are unable to respond to you in an intelligent manner, they begin their insults and accusations. If they can’t make anything stick, they call you a racist. It’s their hope that you will be insulted and apologetic because the worst thing a person can be in this day and age is a racist. However, liberals have changed the meaning of the word racist so many times that I think, even as smart as they consider themselves, they can’t keep up with the multiple meanings of the term.

Bigot and bigotry are other terms that liberals often throw out there at you. I had a liberal on social media imply that I wasn’t respectful of differing points of view. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. I have never know of a liberal, not even one liberal who had respect for a point of view other than theirs. If you are against universal healthcare, you don’t want people to have access to healthcare. If you are against certain government entitlement programs or think that they should be examined for effectiveness or waste, you hate the poor. If you think that marriage should be between one man and one woman, you are a homophobe. If you didn’t vote for the current president and disagree with him politically, you are racist. Of course, any conduct by a conservative can be construed as racist because liberals have implemented many definitions of racism so that they can pin that moniker on you if they can’t get anything else to stick.

Liberals also love to accuse conservatives of stereo-typing. Again, this is just another instance of the pot calling the kettle black. If you own a confederate battle flag, you’re automatically declared a racist. Liberals refuse to listen to anything you might have to say. Black liberals even get huffy when someone says they don’t like turnip greens. Anyone who doesn’t like a particular food is automatically a racist.

In summation, the very things that liberals continually call conservatives: racists, bigots, homophobes, stereo-typers; they are ten times more guilty of! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

LIBERALS ACTUALLY THINK THEY’RE PERFECT?

It’s been my observation since studying the habits of the modern liberal that they actually think they’re perfect. Of course, when you point out their imperfections, they are taken aback that you would say such things about them. They say they love the poor, the middle class, and minorities. Furthermore, a liberal that votes Democrat could never be a racist; they actually believe that.

They also think they’re smart and deep thinkers, but they have fallen hook, line, and sinker for the current president’s lies.

I don’t know anyone who lives on earth that is perfect and you don’t either. But liberals do have this haughty attitude about themselves and are quick to judge everyone else, especially calling those who oppose the current president’s policies racists. Even though they are supposed to be open-minded human beings, liberals are quick to accuse and label anyone who doesn’t agree with them. Doesn’t sound very open-minded to me.

Several weeks ago, I indicated that I would call any liberal who said anything negative about Dr. Ben Carson a racist. For nearly seven years, I have had to put up with liberals calling me a racist simply because I didn’t agree with the current president’s policies. You can tell the libs until you’re blue in the face that race has nothing to do with it, you just don’t agree with him politically; but for some reason, they can’t comprehend that and continue to accuse you of racism, sexism, homophobia, hating the poor, and hating minorities.

Several weeks ago, I broke into a thread of comments, most, of which, were attacking Dr. Carson. I called the commenters racists. One commenter called me a “nut case.” When I replied as to why I was calling all liberals who attacked Dr. Carson racists, the thread immediately shut down. I commented, “It’s not as much fun when the shoe’s on the other foot is it? What goes around comes around.”

I had one liberal Facebook friend to tell me that I was just being silly. I replied, “Of course, I’m being silly.” I’m also being intolerant, judgmental, and unreasonable and I’m going to continue to be intolerant, judgmental, and unreasonable. I want to demonstrate to liberals just what they are, and it’s so opposite to what they think they are.

I used to work with a liberal that believed all conservatives were evil. She had been told that by her liberal friends and raised that way. When I explained to her the difference between liberals and conservatives/Democrats and Republicans from a political standpoint, she was incredulous. Up until I explained the differences, she just assumed that conservatives hated minorities, the poor, and the middle class, and wanted to make life as hard for them as possible.

While liberalism promotes a strong, powerful, controlling centralized government, I don’t, for one second, think that grass-roots liberals see themselves as promoters of the government controlling every aspect of our lives. Grass-roots liberals, many of which have public sector jobs, do have anti-business tendencies and think, like their elitist counterparts, that corporations are evil. Grass-roots liberals also seem to be advocates of taxing the rich and generally despise the rich and wish to do them harm. They don’t or maybe they refuse to see that heavily taxing the rich may result in layoffs in the private sector. Layoffs in the private sector results in less tax revenue to the government, from where their paychecks come. Most grass-roots liberals love entitlements and again, think the rich should be taxed heavily to provide funding for these entitlements.

Grass-roots liberals, while not totally against the private sector, want to see extensive regulations in the private sector. However, I’ve been on some threads where it seems that all the commenters are totally against anything in the private sector. And, of course, just mention alternative forms of education to a public school teacher (most are liberals) and you’re sure to get an earful.

In other words, grass-roots liberals think they’re good people because they want to destroy the rich and help the poor through excessive taxation of the rich to fund government programs that help the poor. We all know these government programs usually do more harm than good. They almost always get their news from the mainstream media and believe that issues such as man-made climate change is real because they have never heard the other side.

Here in central Alabama, your grass-roots liberals, composed mainly of public sector workers, school teachers, minorities, plaintiffs’ trial lawyers, and union members, maintain an air of superiority, particularly school teachers and plaintiffs’ trial lawyers. They can be hateful at times, also, accusing conservatives of hating the poor, hating public education, and hating minorities. And yes, these liberals think they’re perfect, particularly those in public education. If you question anything they say or point out facts or statistics that might not support their side, you will be accused of being against education.

With the next tiers of liberals, you get into those who actually know the difference between Democrats and Republicans and believe that government should be all powerful and intrusive. These are the liberals that attend conferences and learn how to attack conservatism. It appears all they know how to do is change the subject and accuse you of hating the poor, hating minorities, desiring an unclean environment, etc. Like grass-roots liberals, it’s nearly impossible to have a discussion with upper tier liberals. They all become emotional, accusatory, and judgmental.

Liberals are the true racists and bigots of our time. They’re not perfect like they think they are and can’t, in their wildest dreams, imaging why anyone would call them racist or bigoted.

WHITE PRIVILEGE/MALE PRIVILEGE…WHAT ABOUT LIBERAL PRIVILEGE?

An article posted to American Thinker, yesterday, June 16, 2015, authored by Christopher Chantrill, entitled “The Only Privilege in America is Liberal Privilege,” says it all.

In the last couple of years, we are hearing the term, “white privilege.” Frankly, I wasn’t sure what it meant, so I googled it, and I’m still not sure if I have a firm grasp on “white privilege.” “White supremacy” was a term used several decades ago with much of its use by the Ku Klux Klan, and the phrase is now surfacing in the 21st century, used by liberals desiring to label all white Americans as inherently racist and bigoted.

In his writing, Mr. Chantrill indicates that “white privilege” and “male privilege” make good catchphrases for community organizers and social justice warriors. They can make anyone who is not a male and who is not white victims and blame the men and the white folks.

I never thought of the term, “liberal privilege” until I read Mr. Chantrill’s article. Liberal privilege exists! A liberal can say anything and get away with it. Remember when the late Senator Robert Byrd, Democrat from West Virginia, used the n-word on the Senate floor? Very little was said about it and the liberals gave him a pass. Also, the late Senator was a former member of the Ku Klux Klan. That little fact very seldom surfaced and when it was brought out, mostly by conservatives, liberals were quick to dismiss it indicating that the Senator was a changed man. If a Republican was running for the House or Senate and had once been a member of the KKK, he would be immediately demonized and forced out of the race.

When speaking at the 100th birthday party of the late Republican Senator Strom Thurmond from South Carolina, Senator Trent Lott, Republican from Mississippi told the attendees that this country would have been much better off if Senator Thurmond had been elected President in 1948 when he campaigned for the presidency under the States’ Rights Democratic (Dixiecrat) party. Senator Thurmond had some personal issues and was a strong segregationist. Senator Lott ultimately had to resign his position as House Majority Leader because of a speech made at a private birthday party honoring a 100 year old gentleman. The movement to demonize Senator Lott was led by liberals, of course.

I have mentioned so many times in my posts that liberals change the definition of racism to meet their needs of the moment. What passes for racism these days is beyond me. But as I’ve indicated many times on many posts, I have not evolved, so I’m an unenlightened oaf and incapable of understanding liberal thought.

A liberal can accuse a conservative of anything and it doesn’t have to be true. Then, the burden of proof is on the conservative to prove what the liberal said is false. When former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney was running for president in 2012, then Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, on the Senate floor accused candidate Romney of not paying his taxes. Of course, Governor Romney had paid his taxes and had to show proof that he did. When asked about his lies on the Senate floor about Governor Romney, Senator Reid responded, “He didn’t get elected.” There was no remorse on the part of Senator Reid for his deliberate lies.

If you’re not convinced that liberal privilege is dominant in American political culture, remember Brendan Eich who was forced to resign his position as CEO of Mozilla, because he made a donation to a group that supported traditional marriage (that between one man and one woman).

Liberals “holler” to the top of their lungs that conservatives are ignorant, racists, bigots, uneducated, haters, morons, etc. They get away with it and it’s left to the conservative to prove that what liberals are saying about them s untrue. In fact, I believe it’s the liberals who are the racists, the bigots, and the haters.

How do we stop liberal privilege? It’s hard to do when the main stream media has their back. In addition to being racists, bigots, and haters themselves, liberals are also bullies. And what happens when you turn on a bully and give it right back to him or her? They usually roll over. We have to remember that liberals can’t win argument on the facts, conservatism is much more defendable that liberalism. When liberals begin their usual methods of operation, hurling insults and attempting to force conservatives to lose their train of thought, conservatives must be prepared, stay focused on the issue(s) at hand, and suggest a reasonable debate of the issue(s). That will make a liberal turn and run quicker than anything.

I want to thank Christopher Chantrill for his coinage of the term “liberal privilege” and his valuable insight to the real privileged in America today.

Where Do You Stand?

The first time that I ever voted, I split my ticket. It was a presidential election year and I voted for the Republican candidate for President. After that, I’ve always voted straight Republican. As you can determine, I have never voted for a Democrat for President or for Governor of Alabama. I became a very outspoken Republican in the 1980s after joining Greater Birmingham Young Republicans.

I truly believe in the Republican philosophy of how we should govern ourselves; less government is best and if the government needs to handle something, it should be done at the lowest level of government possible.

Having said the above, there have been countless times that folks have said to me, “I don’t vote for the party, I vote for the person.” I have more respect for someone who is a big government/socialist/totalitarian leaning Democrat than I have for the person who claims to be independent and “votes for the man.” I include those that “vote for the man” as low information voters and pretty much hold them responsible for the dire situation that this country is in now.

In 2008, they didn’t like President Bush and just because it happened on Bush’s watch, the late summer/early fall collapse of the economy was automatically George Bush’s fault. This country needs change and anything has to be better than what we have. So, without doing any research on the root cause of the 2008 economic collapse, they voted for the sliver-tongued Barak Obama (now I’ve actually said his name) because he promised hope and change.

A low information voter usually gets his or her news from a local newspaper and the evening news. Because the mainstream media is an advocate of liberal causes, low information voters tend to accept, without a doubt, that man-made global warming/climate change is real, that those who reject socialized medicine/Obamacare are racists and don’t want the American people to have access to health care, that Republicans/conservatives are against the current President because he is half black, etc.

In 1992, the year that Bill Clinton was elected President for the first time, I was working with a number of very opinionated women. If you recall, one of the platforms that the Clinton campaign rallied around was the acumen of Bill’s wife, Hillary. They purported that in voting for Bill, you would get two for the price of one. Hillary Clinton was definitely going to be an involved first lady. Several of the women that I worked with were very supportive of Hillary and were excited that a woman, it didn’t matter that she was not actually elected by the people or appointed to a position with the approval of Congress, was going to be heavily involved in the governing of this nation. When I simply told them that I didn’t agree with her politically, they looked at me as though I was a traitor to my sex. It seems that nothing mattered about her except that she was a woman and a self-proclaimed feminist. This group was definitely pro-choice, but on other issues I doubt any of them could discuss much of anything.

Several months ago I recall seeing a post from someone on Facebook to the effect that we should forget about being a Democrat or a Republican and work together to solve our problems. That certainly sounds good, but so many times, we get those “watered down” solutions that no one is happy with. Furthermore, those solutions are usually bad. Republicans seems to be scared to be portrayed in the press as the party of “NO.” Therefore, they end up compromising and government just gets larger.

With a government so unfathomably huge and an administration that is out of control, I think the Republicans should embrace being the party of “NO.” NO to expanding the role of government. NO to more social programs that are making our citizens even more dependent on government than they already are.NO to new taxes. NO to violating the principles set forth in the U.S. Constitution by our founding fathers.

Being an “Internet Girl,” I spend a substantial amount of time online, a lot of it doing political research. While I mostly peruse conservative sites, I also spend some time on liberal sites such as Huffington Post, Mother Jones, Salon, and Slate. I don’t like seeing things taken out of context and will call out anyone, Democrat or Republican on that.

Now I don’t expect everyone to take an interest in political issues like I do, but I do think it is every American citizen’s duty to be an informed voter. When you voted for the silver-tongued president that promised hope and change, did you do any research regarding what that change might include or did you just go with the mainstream media who were slobbering all over themselves at the site of this guy. Do you know what the difference between a Republican and Democrat is, what the difference between a conservative and a liberal is? Before even getting in close proximity to a voting place, I believe that knowing these differences is an absolute necessity.

As I indicated above, it’s not just the big government liberals that are taking this country down. In fact, the root blame for the descent of this country lies with the low information voters and those who “vote for the man.”
