Dear Readers: The day’s title is a prophesy from the Goddess of Flaming Capitalism (freshly confirmed via Instapundit). It comes to me upon reflection on several news and history items I came across. I am inspired after seeing snippets Obama’s speech yesterday in Detroit, surrounded by race hustlers and union thugs who have decimated my hometown, which has lost over 60% of its population since they took over this once thriving metropolis.
So today, I am going to cite examples of cold, hard racism to remind all my fellow citizens what it really looks like.
Libya Today, Thanks to Obama
This gem comes via Beers with Demo:
Rebel forces and armed civilians are rounding up thousands of black Libyans and migrants from sub-Sahara Africa, accusing them of fighting for ousted strongman Moammar Gadhafi and holding them in makeshift jails across the capital.
Virtually all of the detainees say they are innocent migrant workers, and in most cases there is no evidence that they are lying. But that is not stopping the rebels from placing the men in facilities like the Gate of the Sea sports club, where about 200 detainees — all black — clustered on a soccer field this week, bunching against a high wall to avoid the scorching sun.
I will point out that Obama, who used the executive power of his office, placed those jailors into the position of power. How much has the mainstream media mentioned this? No so very much, but clearly this is an example of what real ethnic-endangering racism looks like.
America Yesterday, A Tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr.
During my trip through Arizona, I heard a reading from Martin Luther King Jr.’s Letter from a Birmingham jail:
But when you have seen vicious mobs lynch your mothers and fathers at will and drown your sisters and brothers at whim; when you have seen hate filled policemen curse, kick and even kill your black brothers and sisters; when you see the vast majority of your twenty million Negro brothers smothering in an airtight cage of poverty in the midst of an affluent society; when you suddenly find your tongue twisted and your speech stammering as you seek to explain to your six year old daughter why she can’t go to the public amusement park that has just been advertised on television, and see tears welling up in her eyes when she is told that Funtown is closed to colored children, and see ominous clouds of inferiority beginning to form in her little mental sky, and see her beginning to distort her personality by developing an unconscious bitterness toward white people; when you have to concoct an answer for a five year old son who is asking: “Daddy, why do white people treat colored people so mean?”; when you take a cross county drive and find it necessary to sleep night after night in the uncomfortable corners of your automobile because no motel will accept you; when you are humiliated day in and day out by nagging signs reading “white” and “colored”; when your first name becomes “nigger,” your middle name becomes “boy” (however old you are) and your last name becomes “John,” and your wife and mother are never given the respected title “Mrs.”; when you are harried by day and haunted by night by the fact that you are a Negro, living constantly at tiptoe stance, never quite knowing what to expect next, and are plagued with inner fears and outer resentments; when you are forever fighting a degenerating sense of “nobodiness”–then you will understand why we find it difficult to wait. There comes a time when the cup of endurance runs over, and men are no longer willing to be plunged into the abyss of despair.”
Race Hustling: A Contributor to Detroit’s Failure
Monica Conyers, wife to Congressman John Conyers, was sentenced to 3 years for bribe taking. While she was on the Detroit City Council, there was a race-based incident during a meeting. Here are the details:
The black nationalism that is now the dominant ideology of the council was on proud display, both at the table and in the audience… whites were advised by the citizens to, “Go home.”
Opponents were allowed to rant and ramble on uninterrupted about “those people” who want to steal Detroit’s assets and profit from the city’s labor.
A pitiful Teamster official who practically crawled to the table on his knees expressing profuse respect for this disrespectful body was battered by both the crowd and the council.
When he dared suggest that an improved Cobo Center would create more good-paying jobs for union workers, Conyers reminded him, “Those workers look like you; they don’t look like me.”
Desperate, he invoked President Barack Obama’s message of unity and was angrily warned, “Don’t you say his name here.”
MUT NOTE: Detroit’s condition is so bad under the corruptocrats that Time featured a photo essay entitled “The Remains of Detroit“.
Flash-Mob Victims Targeted by Race
Flash-mobs, which have used social network media to organize robbery and mayhem, have become so numerous that there is a website devoted to it: violentflashmobs.com. Gateway Pundit has been doing an excellent job covering at well.
The title sums up the piece, which is a must read. It was to the point that the local newspaper, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel made the following report:
Witnesses, though, told the Journal Sentinel that the attacks appeared to be unprovoked and racially motivated.
“You could just tell they were after white people. That was the main thing. If you were white, they were coming after you,” said Jon Stikl of Oak Creek.
He said he was stuck in traffic as a group of young people blocked cars near the fair gate on S. 84th St. near I-94 after he picked up family members attending the fair.
“We noticed a group of five to 10 young black males run up and jump a young white male for no other reason then him being white,” Stikl said.
They knocked him to the ground, and then a group of 15 black men kicked and stomped on him, Stikl said.
New Black Panthers and Race Politics at the Justice Department
If you want a real example of race-based citizen intimidation, you need look no farther than 2008 and the New Black Panthers:
Race-based politics meant the clear civil rights case was dismissed; the details can be found Here: Former Justice Department Lawyer Accuses Holder of Dropping New Black Panther Case for Racial Reasons
I guess Team Holder was too busy getting American guns into the hands of Mexican drug lords (perhaps of some sort of expansive race harmony policy?).
Living Guilt Free and Loving It
Obviously, America has had struggles with race. However, as the evidence is clear, no one race is innocent of this activity. It is individuals who choose to be tolerant or hateful; and, Tea Partiers coming together are about the most inclusive group in America today.
I will remind everyone that Andrew Breitbart is still offering $100,000 to anyone who can produce the video showing that members of the Congressional Black Caucus were actually called “N**gers by tea party members (a false charge that went with the lead-up to the 2010 election.
More recently, Indiana congressman Andre Carson slandered members of Congress who are members of the Tea Party by saying that they to see blacks “hanging from trees.” Jesse Jackson recently made up a whole new amendment to the US Constitution in order to smear fellow Americans. A Congressional Black Caucus member from Florida plainly states we, fellow Americans, were enemies.
Tea Party people like myself are working hard to reduce the regulatory strangleholds that cost jobs. We are working toward a sensible tax system and budget that provides the items what we need, identifies those we don’t, and ensures that earners are rewarded for hard work and those people who are truly in need are cared for. Given our goals, I would say Tea Party people care more for the constituents of race-baiting politicians than their representatives.
We will not stop working hard, and optimistically, for positive change. That being said, the spate of hate-language directed at citizen activists is concerning. Tea partiers are being dehumanized, I fear, so that actual attacks will then occur that will silence and frighten those who don’t capitulate.
In parting, I will share the single most racist item I personally ever heard. It comes from the lips of an 8-year old black child, in earshot of my then 4-year old son, while we were visiting Legoland: “There are too many white people here.” The death look I gave that boy was such that he turned around quickly, and his chaperone had the good taste to be embarrassed. However, I will not forget the feeling of helplessness — this entitled boy would get perks and advancements that my own son could only dream of. That young child got that attitude from the same place Conyers and the Black Panthers got theirs. Therefore, I will not allow them to project their racism onto me, and hope others follow this lead. I will also not be silenced by lies.
