Red Herring Argument: The KKK Agrees With You

Published

on

A common tactic of the left is to highlight the worst extremists and compare them to regular conservatives. Murderers, rapists, violent racists; no one is too heinous to dredge up the comparisons. The left is getting sneakier about it too. The MSM stopped using the word terrorist recently, now referring to them as “extremists,” for two reasons. The first is in order to make terrorists look less evil, since they want to make the right’s opposition to terrorism look like racism, and the second reason is in order to lump the right in more easily with terrorists by also referring to people on the right as extremists. It’s a pretty ambitious plan, labeling people who denounce someone else with the same moniker, but so far no one seems to notice or call them out.  

 

It’s a clever tactic to lump regular conservatives in with the worst people in society, because studies show this kind of association works to convince some people. But it’s a lie. Evil people happen to share views with standard ideologies because they are mentally ill, not because they passionately believe in principles like freedom. In most of the mass shooting incidents in the U.S., the shooter had almost no significant political ideology. A handful leaned to the left and almost none to the right. If the left wants to continue digging down this hole, people who bother to read past their biased articles on the surface are going to discover the limited correlation points to their side.

The left lumped conservatives in with racists for years, so much that no one blinked an eye when real extremists organized a rally to save Confederate monuments and called it “Unite the Right.” It wasn’t uniting the right; most conservatives don’t have strong opinions about preserving Confederate monuments, they were a pet project of Southern Democrats. Of course, there were probably some regular conservatives who were fooled and attended, thinking it was just some patriotic rally. The man who drove his car into the rally, killing protester Heather Heyer, has a terrible background, including threatening his mother with violence multiple times. She called the police on him and he was held in juvenile detention at least once. His high school teacher said he was “deeply into Adolf Hitler and white supremacy.” 

 

The left frequently mentions that former President Donald Trump said about the rally, “You had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides.” However, they deliberately leave off the rest of his comments, where he clearly denounced the “neo-Nazis and white supremacists” and said “they should be condemned totally.” And they never mention that his girlfriend before Melania was black, and she has spoken up since then saying he is not a racist. 

 

But even that’s not enough for them. They now turn things like that around on conservatives, and say “You can still be a racist even though you’re dating a black person,” or “they’re culturally appropriating.” You can be the least racist person in the world and they will say that’s evidence you’re a racist.

 

The only thing the left can point to that is supposedly a correlation between the right and the KKK is the right believes in freedom, so the KKK thinks it can get away with racism better. While the right believes in freedom of speech, unlike the left with its incessant censorship and cancel culture, it’s a far cry from thinking racism is acceptable. 

 

The right believes that people are equal and colorblind, what Martin Luther King Jr. fought for — which the left now incredibly attacks. Christians, who comprise a large percentage on the right, are some of the strongest denouncers of racism. Paul’s letter to the Galatians states, “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” The left can’t even point to anything racist in the Bible because it doesn’t exist. Neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members are usually atheists. Bruce Walker at The American Thinker compiled a long list of evidence showing how the Nazis attacked Christians, including arresting them.  

 

The Ku Klux Klan was full of prominent Democrats, too many to list here. The Republican Party supported emancipation, so despite Democrats’ efforts to whitewash history, it doesn’t make any sense that Republicans today would decide now to become racist after everything they’ve achieved ending slavery.

 

The left’s strategy here is really simple: Label everything horrible as far right, no matter how different or strange the ideology. They haven’t yet started labeling communism far right, but that’s only because it’s too close to their own political views — they’re headed in that direction, and they still naively think it’s possible. But there are signs it is coming, look at how the left and their comrades in the MSM so eagerly jumped on permanently adopting the color blue for the Democrats in 2000, instead of reverting back and forth alternating red and blue with the Republicans as they had for years during presidential elections. This is because they don’t want the association with red communism. 

If a KKK member likes licorice and you like licorice, does that make you an evil person for liking licorice? People have all kinds of different preferences, we are all wired differently. What do the Democrats have to say about KKK Grand Dragon Will Quigg endorsing Hillary Clinton for president in 2016? There are plenty more examples like that. Until the Democrats can explain that away, they have no business condemning Republicans who find themselves with a few horrible supporters. Especially since Democrats deliberately set up anonymous social media accounts pretending to be Republicans which spew hate and racism. They are so desperate to get people to believe their lie, unable to back it up with facts, they resort to creating fake people.

Joe Biden Bingo

Here is a tool which could help you to stay tuned on broadcasts featuring our acting president

Published

on

Even if you caught only snippets of Joe Biden’s recent press conference, you know that his mental decline continues unabated. It’s unlikely that even a handful of Americans watched the event in its entirety. Who would want to waste their time?

What’s occurring is a national travesty, and it is increasingly evident to larger portions of our population that Joe Biden is being abused as an elder, as he abuses others.

Throughout his 365 days in office, Biden has struggled to pronounce a word and then offers a non-sequitur to what he was originally saying. With regularity he tells stories that are simply false. He refers to his vice president as president. He insults vast segments of the population. He stumbles and stammers repeatedly. He checks his watch, fumbles with his mask, and snaps at people when he doesn’t like a question. And those are the least of his faux pas with audiences.

‘Anti-Racists’ are Racist: Do Not Apologize for Being White

‘Anti-racists’ claim that whites, by virtue of their skin color, are detrimental to society

Published

on

Ibram X. Kendri, the bigoted professor from Boston University and director of their Center for Antiracist Research, says that whiteness is a problem for all of society, indeed for the entire globe. Who knew?!

Kendri, who was included in Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020, seemingly knows a lot about white people. In fact, he professes to know about every white person in America if not all over the world.

Me? I’m one of those people who merely gets up every day, brushes his teeth, gets dressed, eats a decent breakfast, and goes to work. I had no inkling that in the U.S. and other western nations white people like me had been “socialized to feel that they are inherently superior because they are white.” How naive I have been all these years!

Now I discover that to be “less white” is a virtue! It requires one to be “less oppressive, less arrogant, less certain, less defensive, less ignorant,” and, more humble, more willing to listen, more willing to believe, and, get this, “to break with the apathy” that white people like me exhibit and “to break with white solidarity.”

Woke Institutions and Brainwashed Authors

White solidarity? Darn, nobody told me about this. Thank goodness it’s all become so clear thanks to enlightened (white) authors such as Robin DiAngelo, who wrote the thoroughly racist and condescending book White Fragility, and thanks to companies such as Coca-Cola which have the foresight to impose programs for its white employees, to be less white.

When there’s a challenge in front of me, I actually do strive to find the right answer, particularly something related to numbers. I will collaborate on occasion, but most of the time I prefer to figure out things for myself, aided by the “all-knowing” Internet.

Am I arrogant, oppressive,  defensive, or ignorant? No one has ever brought this up. Being white, however, I guess I can’t help it! I don’t seek to inhibit the success of others, but I’m now informed that by virtue of my skin color I am detrimental to society. Mea culpa!

The Anti-Racist Racists

With Coca-Cola and other organizations teaching white people to be less white, I’m wondering, will the sequel be how Asians can be less yellow and Indians can be less brown? In America, both groups seem to excel academically. Perhaps only domineering Caucasians, particularly 60+ white males like me, however, are the ones upsetting the apple cart all over society.

Was I given a free pass for the last 40 years? I mean, all the while nobody mentioned my whiteness as a social and cultural problem. My black friends from Little League, high school, various hiking groups, and other groups around town haven’t said squat. So, up ’til now, presumably, I was doing okay. Perhaps they’ve merely been nice to me while whispering behind my back.

Heeding the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I thought our common goal was to live in harmony and to reach a state of color blindness where people were judged by the content of their character and not by their skin color. Hmmm…  I guess that is no longer in play.

I’m wondering, what would MLK conclude about today? Would he speak up against the propensity of the Left to define everybody else by class, sex, or race? Would he be opposed to pitting young against old, rich against poor, black against white, rural against urban, male against female, and all the other phony dichotomies that the Left relentlessly promulgates each day?

Absurd From the Get-Go

Imagine the unending uproar if someone drew up a list of how hundreds of millions of black people all over the world could become “less black.” The  absurdity of regarding all white people, hundreds of millions of them, as having a general set of characteristics, let alone having those characteristics be detrimental to society, is the grand facade of the ages.

How long will “woke” organizations maintain this illusion? Have they been coerced to the point where they’re afraid to say, “This is ridiculous, and needs to stop now”? [Actually, they have been coerced.] Will decades pass before we see the end of this malarkey?

I do not apologize for being a white person, just as no person of color has to apologize for their ethnic background, skin color, race, or religion. If you’re a good citizen who respects the rights of others, that, my friend, is sufficient.

Morgan Freeman, who played God in the movie Bruce Almighty, wishes we would do away with Black History month and merely have history. Freeman also wants us to stop regarding individuals as black and white and simply let people be people. Amen to that.
