Democrat Clyburn Says It’s Racist Not To Bow To Socialism

It’s hard for white people not to be viewed as racist now that they elected the first black President.  And, of course, it’s impossible for conservative whites.

First we had our first black attorney general tell us we that we weren’t only racists, but cowards as well:

WASHINGTON – Eric Holder, the nation’s first black attorney general, said Wednesday the United States was “a nation of cowards” on matters of race, with most Americans avoiding candid discussions of racial issues. In a speech to Justice Department employees marking Black History Month, Holder said the workplace is largely integrated but Americans still self-segregate on the weekends and in their private lives.

“Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and I believe continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards,” Holder said.

Race issues continue to be a topic of political discussion, but “we, as average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race.”

The only way to avoid being labeled as a racist is to talk about your racism, which … wait a minute – that would make you racist, too.

Face it.  You suck, whitey.  Just recognize it, embrace it, and wallow in your guilt like a pig in mud.

And now we’re being told that to oppose the Generational Theft Act is also racist.

Clyburn: Opposition to stimulus is slap in face

By PAGE IVEY, Associated Press Writer Page Ivey, Associated Press Writer

COLUMBIA, S.C. – The highest-ranking black congressman said Thursday that opposition to the federal stimulus package by southern GOP governors is “a slap in the face of African-Americans.”

U.S. Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., said he was insulted when the governors of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and his home state, which have large black populations, said they might not accept some of the money from the $787 billion stimulus package.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Wednesday he would accept the money, and none of the others has rejected it outright. The Republican governors of Idaho and Alaska also said they had reservations about whether the money would come with too many strings attached, but Clyburn said he was particularly taken aback by southern governors who said they might decline it.

“These four governors represent states that are in the proverbial black belt,” Clyburn said.

A spokesman for South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford accused Clyburn of playing the race card.

Rush Limbaugh is a scourge of the left because he understands their little rodent minds and exposes them for what they are.  Way back on April 24, 2008, Rush said:

RUSH: I can’t tell you the number of people who have called me over the course of the recent past, months or so, and she said, “Rush, I’m thinking about Obama. If Obama wins, doesn’t that mean that there’s no more racism in America?  Doesn’t that mean it’s over?”  Oh, no! Just the opposite.  You have to understand that racial discrimination is a business in this country to people like the Reverend Sharpton and the Reverend Jackson, and any criticism of a black president is going to be said to be racist!

Make that any criticism of a black president’s $3.27 trillion dollar socialist porkulus generational theft act is racist.  Make that a nation of cowardly racists because we can’t “Mea culpa” enough to satisfy an attorney general who pardoned a tax cheating commodities trader (Marc Rich) who did business with terrorists in Iran and then fled the country to avoid facing the music.  When he wasn’t pardoning actual terrorists.

I guess it’s part of being “racist,” but I despise being morally lectured by weasels like Eric Holder.

And House Majority Whip James Clyburn thinks it’s racist for governors to oppose accepting porkulus bill pork money because it will supposedly hurt black people, but he didn’t have a problem hoping that the war – with a bunch of black people fighting it – would go poorly so he and his fellow Democrats could demagogue it as a political issue.

“If Obama wins, doesn’t that mean there’s no more racism in America?”

You stupid moron.  Of course not.  Hard-core racists will always see people of different skin colors as evil.

Anybody who thought that should have paid attention to the fact that Barack Obama spent 23 years in a racist church, then had the unmitigated chutzpah to deliver a speech lecturing the country on racism.  In that speech he piously proclaimed of his racist spiritual mentor Jeremiah Wright:

I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother.

And then threw Wright under the bus the moment he became more of a political liability than a political asset.  And only twenty-three years too late to matter.

Anybody who thought that should have listened to the race-card-dealt-from-the-bottom-of-the-deck preemptively racist charge against Republicans from Barack Obama:

JACKSONVILLE, Florida (Reuters) – Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama said on Friday he expects Republicans to highlight the fact that he is black as part of an effort to make voters afraid of him…

“They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?”

Anybody who thought that should have listened to Rep. John Lewis’ totally unmerited poisonous racist bile against John McCain and Sarah Palin:

“I am deeply disturbed by the negative tone of the McCain-Palin campaign,” said Lewis, an Obama supporter, civil rights icon and Georgia Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“What I am seeing today reminds me too much of another destructive period in American history. Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin are sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse,” he said.

Noting that Wallace, a divisive political figure in his day, had also run for president, Lewis said, “He created the climate and the conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans who were simply trying to exercise their constitutional rights.”

“Sen. McCain and Governor Palin are playing with fire, and if they are not careful, that fire will consume us all,” Lewis said.

Anybody who thought that should have listened to Rep. Bobby Rush’s totally hypocritical and totally over-the-top racist charges shouted to demand that white Senators be shamed into approving corruption-ridden (and now ousted) Governor Blagojevich’s pick of Raymond Burris simply because the man was black:

This is a matter of national importance. There are no African- Americans in the Senate, and I don’t think that anyone — any U.S. senator, who’s sitting in the Senate, right now, wants to go on record to deny one African-American for being seated in the U.S. Senate. I don’t think they want to go on record doing that. And so, I intend to take that argument to the Congressional Black Caucus.

“I will ask you not to hang and lynch the appointee as you try to castigate the appointer.”

Eric Holder – self-righteous hypocrite that he is – pompously lectures the nation that “we, as average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race.”  Maybe that’s because there are way too damn many people like you who are just waiting to jump all over any white person who dares to risk saying something that will give a bunch of hard-core racist black leaders a chance to jump down their throats with the charge of “Racist! Racist! Racist!”

Maybe it’s because black “civil rights” leaders have turned “race issues” into the equivalent of a communist show trial, in which this white person, and then that, is frog marched before the tribunal, and assumed guilty until proven innocent.

And maybe it’s because we’ve heard the “racist” thing – rather like the boy who cried wolf – so many damn times that we’re frankly fed up with dealing with one pseudo crisis after another (I think back to perennially-outraged race-card peddler Jesse Jackson leaping to pile condemnation on the innocent Duke Lacrosse team players, while giving the lying accuser financial aid).

People like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton destroy lives with their racist charges, and then move on to the next press-garnering episode.

And their racist attacks are always politically-motivated, with conservative blacks like Condileeza Rice, Colin Powell, Bill Cosby, and Michael Steele not needing to apply for sympathy as they are called “Aunt Jemimahs”, “Uncle Toms”, “happy Negroes” and “race traitors” for being conservative or Republican.

At some point, with the deck stacked by a kangaroo court, white people just shut down and quit talking, Mr. Holder.  And it’s not their fault; it’s your fault.

I personally am to the point that if I am called a racist, I merely respond by saying, “What a racist thing of you to say, you racist bigot.”  How else should I respond to people who use a label to attack, undermine, discredit, marginalize, and hurt me not because of my attitudes toward race, but rather because of my attitudes toward politics.

If there’s one good thing that comes out of the election of Barack Obama (and I’ll wager that no OTHER good thing will come out of it), it’s that the myth that “black people can’t be racist because racism demands power” has now been officially exploded.  A black man is the most powerful man in the country.  And another black man is the nation’s highest law enforcement officer.  That’s more than enough power to qualify even by the ridiculous and twisted standard and utterly self-serving standard routinely offered by racist black intellectuals.

I would welcome an honest conversation on racial issues.  But it has to begin with an honest self-assessment from every participant and from every group involved.  The days when black leaders can use race as a club to bludgeon white society into submission need to end.

Today, as I write this, there is another of an endless series of examples of generated racial outrage over a political – and NOT a racial – issue.  The New York Post used the story of the crazed chimpanzee to mock the crafting of the stimulus bill.  Barack Obama didn’t write a single page of the bill – yet somehow the Post is being accused of comparing Obama to a chimp.

Governor Bobby Jindel and other Republican governors are not racist or out to hurt black people for being hesitant to accept the so-called “stimulus” money.  Rather they are “concerned about Federal strings and the long-term impact of the borrowed money.”  Theirs is a principled stand, NOT a prejudiced one.  In the end, they will probably all take the money, for the simple reason that this massive package will have to be paid for by every citizen of every state, regardless if they wanted it or not.

    Good article. Enough of this racist BS. It is an old, worn out tactic and I want it turned back on them!

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    The incredible thing is that we can now count on it – just as Rush Limbaugh predicted – for “this racist BS” to escalate under Obama.

    There is no “satisfying” liberals. There is no appeasing black “civil rights” leaders. They don’t give a damn about anything but their power and their benefits.

  3. hl Says:

    I read this quote by Winston Churchill and wanted to pass it on.

    “Socialism is a philosophy of FAILURE,
    the creed of IGNORANCE,
    the gospel of ENVY;
    it’s inherent virtue is the equal sharing of MISERY.”

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    HL,
    Thanks for that Churchill quote; I’m adding to my file.

    Here’s one for you, from the billboard of a church I drove by:
    “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

  5. hl Says:

    Thanks! It does my heart good that this quote was on the billboard of a church.

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    I tracked it down. And discovered it was a quote from the “Iron lady,” Margaret Thatcher.

    “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”

    Found another quote by a preacher, Dr. Adrian Rogers:
    What one person receives without working for, another person must work for but not receive.

    The government cannot give to anybody anything the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply the wealth by dividing it.
