Racism is caused when the
liberal mostly white establishment anoints left-wing radicals as black leaders.
The truth is that most blacks in America are conservative patriotic religious
people. Black radicals such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and historic
figures such as Malcolm X and the Black Panthers are turned into cultural icons
by left-wingers with ulterior motives.
No wonder there is racism in
America. The establishment left plucks radicals out of obscurity, grooms them, lavishes
them with money and fame and holds them up as representing all black people. We
don’t hear much from the majority of blacks who go to work every day and who
are business owners, academics, entrepreneurs and inventors, who are
accomplished full participants in the American dream. It’s almost as if they are invisible.
While propped up corrupt
left-wing stooges fan the flames of racism, cadres of well-paid liberal professionals
offer solutions to the problems they created. They offer taxpayer funded government
programs that damage the black faith and family. Johnson Administration under
Secretary of Labor Daniel Patrick Moynihan was right when he predicted in 1965
that these programs would hurt the black family and create a permanent under-class.
Labor Department statistics show poverty rates amongst American blacks were falling
each year until these programs were implemented in the late 1960’s. At that
time, and in the midst of economic growth, poverty rates for black families became
static for the first time and they remain so.
The racist agenda of the left
serves their ideological and practical ends. Ideologically Socialism is
advanced by a dependent and demoralized underclass manipulated by resentment
and a sense of entitlement. Practical ends are achieved by the cottage industry
of liberal professionals addressing the social ills that emanate from
dependency including the breakdown of the family, crime, violence and drug use.
We all pay a steep price with destroyed lives, squandered taxpayer dollars and
the perpetration of racial divisiveness and tension.
A similar phenomenon took
place in the early 20th Century when a small cadre of left-wing
Communist Jews was held up by the left establishment as representing all Jews. Apostate
former Jews participated in the most bloodthirsty totalitarian regime known to
modern man, one that murdered 3-4 million people by 1920, a year before the
Nazi Party was formed.
It would be naive to think
that this association in the mind of Europeans of Jews with Communism was not a
factor in the rise of Nazi antisemitism and the Holocaust. Like American
blacks, the majority of Jews were conservative religious people who were loyal
citizens of their respective nations. Like American blacks, the conservative
Jews were not heard from much thanks to suppression by the left which cast the
Jews in a false light similar to the way blacks are perceived. The left fanned
the flames of antisemitism then like they fan the flames of racism today and
for the same essential reasons.
