Actually, Everything the DEMOCRATS do is Racist

Published

on

The Democrats’ manner of debating these days can be boiled down to one thing: label everything that conservatives do as racist. It’s a clever tactic, because it avoids discussing the merits of an issue (they always lose on the merits) and puts conservatives on the defensive. It turns the topic to discussing how to punish conservatives for being racist. The left is then free to plow ahead with their agenda because it’s the opposite, which then means it must be stopping racism. Everyone is so terrified of being called a racist that this stops conservatives from speaking up to defend conservative positions. It’s a brilliant strategy. 

Instead of trying to pick holes in the shoddy accusation, what if conservatives went on the offensive and showed how Democrats are actually racist in a lot of their policies, since being defensive isn’t working? 

Some areas are obvious. Affirmative action has proven to be a failure, so bad that it’s been rescinded in multiple areas around the country. Not only does it set minorities up for failure, but it discriminates against other races. Promoting abortion is racist, since minority babies are dispropotionately aborted, and everyone knows the number one abortion mill, Planned Parenthood, was founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger.

Rejecting voter integrity laws is racist. Democrats claim that minorities are too stupid to do things like bring a driver’s license with them to the polls to vote. This is a classic example of how the left takes something that it does which is racist and turns it around to say the right is racist The leftists running MLB pulled the 2021 all-star game out of Atlanta as retaliation for Georgia implementing stricter voting laws, moving it to the very white city of Denver. Considering Atlanta has one of the highest proportions of blacks of baseball cities in the country, this results in punishing blacks disproportionately. 

There are accusations that the real reason corporations are pulling out of big urban blue cities with high minority populations comes down to racism — they are trying to get away from the violence in those areas, but pretending they’re leaving because of politics. 

Welfare is racist, since minorities disproportionately use it and it treats people as if they are incapable of supporting themselves. Some say the left prefers to have government dole out benefits instead of the private sector because they are too selfish themselves to contribute voluntarily. They can’t possibly understand others having a different mentality.

Increasing taxes is racist, because minorities make disproportionately less money than whites, and so taxes hurt them more. Even if you increase the percentage of taxes on the rich more, the rich barely feel it.

Same with increasing government regulations. Businesses just pass the additional costs on to consumers. We see this with climate change legislation, which forces businesses to “go green.” 

Raising the minimum wage always hurts minorities more, since they are more likely to have a minimum wage job, and many of those jobs get eliminated when that wage increases. Looking the other way at illegal immigrants working favors Hispanics over blacks. If employers can get away with paying illegal immigrants super low wages, this hurts blacks who are making minimum wage. The same goes for unions. They demand unrealistic compensation for low wage jobs, which eliminates a lot of low wage jobs.

The COVID-19 lockdowns disproportionately hurt the minority community. Minorities were more likely to lose their jobs when businesses were shut down or forced to operate minimally. This is in part because since they make less money overall, they are less likely to be able to work from home. Black business owners were hit badly, with a 41% decrease in their numbers from February to April. Hispanic ownership dropped by 32%. Whereas the average decrease of all business owners dropped by only 22%. 

Expanding LGBT interests over the interests of others harms minorities in various ways. Allowing transgenders to compete against biological women disproportionately hurts black female athletes, who tend to be better athletes on average than white women. Many minorities complain that comparing the LGBT movement to the civil rights movement minimizes the level of discrimination that blacks went through during slavery and Jim Crow.   

Democrats prefer a multilateral approach to world affairs, deferring to the United Nations. But the U.N. gives favorable treatment to tyrannical regimes that slaughter minorities. The U.N. pushes for extreme, costly climate change regulations. 

Democrats want socialized medicine, renamed to Medicare for All to disguise it since it’s become so unpopular. This hurts minorities, since being poorer on average, they are less likely to be able to go around the system and obtain healthcare outside the country. Socialized healthcare cannot pay for certain expensive types of medical procedures; many of them will be performed based on a lottery. With a private healthcare system, people can at least crowdfund to raise funds for procedures they cannot afford. 

The reality is as long as minorities are not as well off on average off as whites, it is easy to say that practically any policy no matter how well-intended affects them worse, so is racist. But the poor in America are actually better off than most European nations! If the U.S. poor were a nation, it would be one of the world’s richest. And for every policy that disproportionately affects minorities for the worse, you can usually point to how it also affects them for the better. 

Blacks began leaving the Democratic Party under President Trump, as more discovered how fake the Democrats were. Malcolm X railed against white leftists, ““The white liberal is the worst enemy to America, and the worst enemy to the black man.” He said they use blacks for their own purposes, “the white liberal use the Negro against the white conservative.” The left used “trickery” designed to make blacks think whites were going to solve their problems. It’s taken years, but blacks are finally figuring out the Democrats’ con.

Sowing the Wind and Reaping the Whirlwind: California and its Epic Wildfires

Published

Like the 2018 Camp Fire, California’s Dixie Fire is epic. It has burned more than 220,000 acres and at least 40 structures. It’s the largest conflagration since the Camp Fire that destroyed Paradise. Sadly, California wildfires are becoming as common as Florida hurricanes. Why is this happening and who’s to blame? In a word, California.

By mismanaging its forests and water sources and enabling a power provider to place profits over people, the Golden State has sown the wind and is reaping the whirlwind.

Why is every California fire season scarier and more destructive than the last? The reasons can be boiled down to these:

  1. Decades of forest mismanagement caused by environmentalists shaping policy
  2. Co-opted Northern California watersheds and water supply diversion
  3. Hotter temperatures and historic drought conditions caused by climate change
  4. Failing PG&E infrastructure
Forest mismanagement

We live five miles from the southeastern edge of the Dixie Fire. Our little mountain town of Quincy is under an evacuation warning. Many of our fellow residents live in areas of mandatory evacuation and some have lost their homes. Local firefighters and forest experts have known for years this was inevitable.

It’s common sense, really. When forest undergrowth and dead limbs and logs are allowed to pile up between trees, you may as well stack logs at their bases and light a match. Wise forest managers remove forest floor fuels and keep forests from growing dangerously dense.

Foolish forest managers allow undergrowth to flourish in order to “protect” ecological environments of certain species at the expense of overall forest ecology. This hands-off approach is pushed in Sacramento by those who think we’re only one species sharing our environment rather than caretakers of our environment.

Wise gardeners prevent weeds from diverting moisture from produce plants by removing them. This ensures a healthy garden. Why wouldn’t smart forest management include removal of undergrowth and dead or dying trees?

Water diversion

A few years ago, state biologists “gill-netted” vast quantities of fish in our local Silver Lake in order to prevent them from feeding on a certain frog. This decimated the fish population in favor of the frog population. How is this an ecological balance?

Similarly, allowing natural water sources to feed rivers and streams provides better hydration for trees—and raises critical moisture levels for forests. Diverting water from Northern California sources when levels are low exacerbates the deadly dryness of moisture-starved Sierra forests. Shouldn’t there be a better balance based on water levels?

As climate change continues to affect moisture and heat, smart and balanced water management becomes more critical. Yet California continues to base policy decisions reactively rather than proactively. If Northern California watershed areas burn for lack of moisture, poor water management will be partially to blame.

So will California’s reliance on hydroelectric power over traditional (and more effective) fossil-fuel plants. The state gets nearly 2/3 of its power from non-fossil fuel production, which is why it has to buy electricity from states like Oregon, Arizona and others.

Failing PG&E

Failed PG&E power lines are responsible for devastating California wildfires for the last five fire seasons. According to PG&E’s initial report the day the Dixie Fire started, an employee responding to an outage noticed a blown fuse at Cresta Dam in a heavily forested area of Butte County around the Feather River Canyon. He found two blown fuses and a tree leaning on a power conductor. He also found a fire on the ground near the base of the tree.

When the 2018 Camp Fire erupted, a PG&E employee noticed flames caused by a faulty transmission line in Feather River Canyon. Many of these lines are supported by electrical towers from the early 1900s. PG&E customers pay modern rates for modern electricity delivered via century-old towers.

In fairness, PG&E is finally taking steps to modernize its infrastructure with underground line burial and other measures. Sadly, these measures are long overdue and are too little too late for victims of the Camp Fire and now for those dealing with the Dixie Fire. Worse, PG&E seems to be continuing their foot-dragging regarding reporting system failures when they point to a wildfire start.

Closed market

According to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), PG&E ignored regulations that require it to report wildfire-related infrastructure failures within two hours of the event. PG&E took five days to report the Dixie Fire-related failure to CPUC. As a state agency, CPUC answers to Governor Gavin Newsom and Sacramento politicians. PG&E is supposed to answer to CPUC, yet is still failing to follow the rules.

Not only is there a lack of meaningful accountability, the relationship between California and PG&E is dysfunctional. The average citizen wonders why Sacramento continues enabling a repeat offender of a power company. Another question is why California refuses to open up its utility market to competitors in order to force PG&E to modernize its infrastructure.

Something has to change or California will continue to burn every fire season. Close to home, people in our community love living in Northern California, but the Golden State will lose even more citizens if residents have to flee the flames every summer.

The Most Important Scholar You’ve Never Heard Of

Published

Thomas Sowell is many things. He’s a historian, an economist, philosopher, and more. He also may very possibly be the most important scholar that you haven’t heard of. Thomas started life on his own at age 17 when he moved out into a homeless shelter and later was drafted into the Marine Corps. Later, he graduated from Harvard and went on to study government regulations coming to some remarkable explanations and solutions. PragerU tells Thomas’s inspiring story in this video linked below.
