Harry Reid was speaking before a group of liberal Hispanics when he said the following:
“I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, OK? Do I need to say more?”
Why did Harry Reid say that? Well, as a progressive Democrat, Harry Reid understands the “white man’s burden.”
Harry Reid understands that blacks and Hispanics are little more than animals – millions of years’ worth of Darwinism from attaining the humanity of the white man. And therefore it is the duty of the white man to guide his less evolved evolutionary cousins toward a course that will enable them to survive. I mean, we have programs to protect turtles and frogs; it is the least we can do to protect blacks and Hispanics, too.
Most every progressive Democrat knows all that.
Second, Harry Reid, again as a progressive Democrat, understands the equivalent of “they all look alike”; namely that “those kind of people all think the same.” I mean, blacks’ and Hispanics’ minds are clearly far too feeble to enable them to think for themselves, right? I mean, that’s a big part of why we’ve got the “white man’s burden thing” above.
One day, millions of years from now if we’re lucky (you know how Darwinism takes eons of time), blacks and Hispanics will finally be fully human, and then we’ll be able to hold them responsible as human beings just like the white man. But Harry Reid knows that we’re far from that day in the here-and-now.
Now, of course, I put both ideas in over-the-top language. But they nevertheless do accurately reflect the incredibly racists underlying assumptions on the part of progressive Democrats today.
First, they lump people into groups on the basis of race and gender. And then they essentially point out that some of these groups are not able to take care of themselves, and therefore we must redistribute the wealth of the more successful groups in order to help the racial categories who are unable to help themselves (and of course to punish the successful groups, who are assumed to have acquired everything they obtained illegitimately or through greed).
Interestingly, in spite of my being white – or according to progressive Democrats BECAUSE of my white race – I am able to think for my self. I don’t “vote my race”; I vote my values. I vote my ideas. I vote my conscience. It is beyond a shame that blacks and Hispanics – according to the Democrat Senate Majority Leader – either don’t have or shouldn’t have that capacity.
Stop and think, liberals. What if a Republican had met a group of white people and said:
“I don’t know how anyone of Caucasian heritage could vote Democrat, OK? Do I need to say more?”
That Republican would have been hounded out of office in shame. And he would be gone.
But if the Democrat Party exists to advance the cause of blacks and Hispanics, then wouldn’t it be just as true that the Grand Old Party exists to advance the cause of some other racial group? And what group would that be if not whites?
Hey, every single one of you white, dirty cracker whores (at least, that’s what the New Black Panthers consider white women) out there: vote Republican, or be branded a traitor to your own race.
Now, of course, you run into the irony that it was that Grand Old Party that freed the slaves, and fought a bitter war to free the slaves against the Democrat Party that was fighting just as bitterly to keep black people in the chains of human bondage. But that’s beside the point in the Democrat narrative.
Harry Reid is also on the record admiring Obama as a:
‘light-skinned’ African American ‘with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.’
Maybe it’s because Obama was half white, but Harry Reid nevertheless praises Obama for overcoming that stupid negro dialect. And being light-skinned is a huge bonus for Harry Reid. “Whiter is better” when you’re in the party of “the White Man’s Burden.”
Bill Clinton wasn’t quite as happy with the man who was stealing his white wife’s rightful place as leader of the free world.
Bill snidely told Ted Kennedy,
“A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.”
I know, William Jefferson. That’s back when southern Democrats like you had a different way of keeping black boys in their proper place.
Senator Robert Byrd, a distinguished “Exalted Cyclops” and “Kleagle” of the famous Democrat-created Ku Klux Klan, was on the record as once saying:
“I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”
Ah. There’s that depiction of blacks as being in that long-way-from-being-human I earlier mentioned.
“The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia and in every state in the nation.”
When Bill Clinton honored fellow Democrat Robert “Exalted Cyclops” Byrd, Clinton said:
“He was a country boy from the hills and hollows of West Virginia. He was trying to get elected. And maybe he did something he shouldn’t have done…”
Well, as long as he was just a Democrat trying to get elected, then ANY racism or racism is fine, isn’t it, Hill Billy?
Maybe he did something he shouldn’t have done. And then again, maybe he didn’t. After all, Byrd was a Democrat, and therefore can get away with the most shocking acts of racist filth imaginable, right, Hill Billy?
Democrats love to call Republicans “racist.” And what a racist thing of them to say (if not being “race traitorous,” if the Democrats are white – to throw Harry Reid’s standard back at them).
I pointed this out once before (and we could also point out that the Confederacy voted exclusively Democrat, and that the KKK was created by Democrats as a terrorist arm to target black people and white Republicans).
The first Klan was founded in 1865 in Pulaski, Tennessee by veterans of the Confederate Army. Although it never had an organizational structure above the local level, similar groups across the South adopted the name and methods. Klan groups spread throughout the South as an insurgent movement after the war. As a secret vigilante group, the Klan reacted against Radical Republican control of Reconstruction by attempting to restore white supremacy by threats and violence, including murder, against black and white Republicans. In 1870 and 1871 the federal government passed the Force Acts, which were used to prosecute Klan crimes. Prosecution of Klan crimes and enforcement of the Force Acts suppressed Klan activity. In 1874 and later, however, newly organized and openly active paramilitary organizations, such as the White League and the Red Shirts, started a fresh round of violence aimed at suppressing Republican voting and running Republicans out of office. These contributed to white conservative Democrats‘ regaining political power in all the Southern states by 1877.
But let me quote myself regarding other parts of the despicable record of the Democrat Party as the party of official racism in America:
I mean, maybe you can go back to President Andrew Jackson and his vicious genocidal Trail of Tears. But Andrew Jackson was a Democrat, too. Or you could go back to President Woodrow Wilson who literally fired all the blacks in federal government and RE-segregated the military. But you guessed it – Democrat. We can go back to January 26, 1922, when Democrat Senators filibustered a Republican bill that had passed in the GOP-controlled House to make lynching a federal crime. Or we could mention the vile and evil political party that had a national convention in 1924 that was so dominated by the Ku Klux Klan that it is today known as “Klanbake.” But, oops. That was the 1924 DEMOCRAT PARTY CONVENTION. Or we could consider that President Franklin Delanor Roosevelt was a bigger racist for put American Japanese citizens in camps for nothing beyond racism. Or for allowing the infamous Tuskegee experiment to begin under his presidency. Or allowing his New Deal program to be used to help Democrat-supporting labor unions hurt black people and shut them out of economic success. But, well, you know…So when you hear Democrats today like Patrick Kennedy comparing the Arizona with the Trail of Tears, note that they’re merely trying to pass the buck for their own Democrat historic racism to innocent Republicans. I mean, what Patrick Kennedy did was analogous to Osama bin Laden saying, “You Americans are the terrorists, just like the murderers who attacked and destroyed the World Trade Center!” But wait a minute, Osama – YOU’RE THE ONE WHO DID THAT!!!
The Democrat Party is the historic proponent of racism in this country (see also my comment here). Oh, they changed their tactics from threats to bribes, but they never abandoned their racist “progressive” values.
The Democrats that once deliberately targeted racial minorities for exclusion and even violence as a means of advancing their political power ultimately realized that their strategy wasn’t working beginning in the 1960s. That was when they realized, “If you can’t beat ‘em, co-opt them.” And they began to buy the votes of the very racial minorities they used to savagely oppress by offering racial quotas (opposed by great civil rights leaders such as Frederic Douglas and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.) and welfare benefits for life.
So why was it that Democrat Senator Robert Byrd was “MAYBE” wrong for being a member of the Klan? The answer is as simple as it is frightening: because it’s always been okay for the Democrat Party to use racism and race-baiting and racial segregation in order to drive their agenda home. And that is just as true today when the Democrats buy off blacks through welfare so they will act as the human shields of the Democrat Party as it was when the Democrat-created Ku Klux Klan was riding around with torches.
Let us not forget that both the famous Martin Luther King, Sr. and his even more famous son were both registered Republicans. It’s a shame that the pseudo civil rights leaders of today – and particularly one Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid – frankly aren’t fit to carry Martin Luther King’s shoes, much less criticize his party affiliation.
Martin Luther King, Jr. and Frederick Douglas BOTH fundamentally opposed the quotas and preferential treatment that Democrats have employed to create the equivalent of the “house negro.” Jack Greenberg of the NAACP said in the 1950s that “The chief problem with quotas is that they introduce a potentially retrogressive concept into the cherished notion of individual equality.”
Let’s listen to Frederick Douglas, escaped slave and greatest of all champions of civil rights, has to say:
Frederick Douglass ridiculed the idea of racial quotas, as suggested by Martin Delany, as “absurd as a matter of practice,” noting that it implied blacks “should constitute one-eighth of the poets, statesmen, scholars, authors and philosophers.” Douglass emphasized that “natural equality is a very different thing from practical equality; and…though men may be potentially equal, circumstances may for a time cause the most striking inequalities.” On another occasion, in opposing “special efforts” for the black freedmen, Douglass argued that they “might ‘serve to keep up very prejudices, which it is so desirable to banish’ by promoting an image of blacks as privileged wards of the state.”
So now conservatives are suddenly racists for agreeing with Frederick Douglas and Martin Luther King, Jr. and against liberals and the vile pseudo values that the greatest civil rights leaders in history condemned?
Richard Nixon, whom Democrats love to make the poster boy for Republican racism, was the first president to introduce the racial quotas that Democrats have been trying to implement and expand ever since. To whatever extent Nixon was a racist, Democrats have been swimming in Nixon’s racism ever since.
Harry Reid should have resigned in disgrace two vile comments ago. He should certainly resign now.
