A Mostly Center-Right Place For Those With Irritable Obama Syndrome and Diversity Fatigue

Bullshit: It’s Not Just For Republicans Anymore August 8, 2010

As Democrats continue to put their best face on events, arguing, in fact that it is the Republicans that got us into this mess and it is gonna take them and only them to get us out, I wonder when did the good guys suddenly turn into the stupid bad guys?   When did the liberals become masters of the bullshit machine? Political battles within the Democratic camps has shown that the party is in the state of panic.  However, they still need a message.  When you don’t have a message and you’re house is not in order (thanks  First Lady) but you have guests coming over for dinner. You have to feed them something. What do you do? You give them a bullshit sandwich.

Can someone tell me is Barack Obama good at anything besides Pez dispensing liberal platitudes and divisive bullshit? Especially when he is backed into a corner?

President Obama flies Air Force One to Chicago on his birthday to campaign for yet another Illinois crook- Alexi Giannoulias, who is campaigning as a Democrat for Obama’s old Senate seat.  Obama raises over 1 million dollars in a day for Giannoulias.  Like Obama, Giannoulias is ” change we can believe in”:

Where is the change ?  Where is the little guy in this? Meanwhile little guys in Chicago oooh and ahhh over catching a glimpse of the chosen one riding through the city.  Like bobble heads “I saw him!!! Did you see him?”   “I got a picture with my iPhone!!!”

The First Lady and child are making headlines in Spain on vacation… again where is the little guy in all of this?

What’s wrong with letting some presidential cash flow to Jackson Hole, Wyoming or Mount Rushmore? How about a “stay-cation” ?   That would reflect your solidarity with the American people who voted for your husband.  I suppose they make organic bullshit burgers too.

How about making a campaign stop in the inner city of Chicago- you know where all of the black men are killing each other?  Any words or fundraisers for them?   Mr. Obama did you know that Chicago police are now riding three men in a car?

There are times when I am blown away when I consider that I once voted for this party without much question.  They represented “brown people”.  They represented women.  The poor and suffering and that was me- at the time.  Yes I am still black and a woman but I stopped being poor and suffering when I graduated from college.   That was when I began to wake up and smell the donkey shit.  Aside from being a black pro-choice woman, there was nothing in the liberal message that resonated with me.  A ten year stint in the great state of Texas proved to me that Republicans are not all a bunch of racists.  In fact, the conservatives I knew provided more positive outreach to their communities than any Democrat I had witnessed during my time in Chicago.

Texans lived relatively high quality lives as compared to Chicagoans.  No state taxes.  No taxes on food.

I can recall during my first Texas year stepping up to a Piggly Wiggly cashier and exclaiming over my 89 cents can of tuna fish costing exactly 89 cents.

“Honey, there is no tax on food here,” the cashier said to me. “Where have you been?”

I was in shock.  “…Chicago…The only time we don’t pay taxes on food is when we use food stamps.”

The cashier just gives me this blank stare.  I think she went home and prayed for me that night over her tax free meal of Frito Pie.

Afrocity just wondered if living in a Republican run state was so bad, why did I get to keep more of my hard earned money?  Oh, because the Republicans don’t care about the little guy. My mother learned this when she moved there and attempted to get on welfare without children and at age 54.  Texas told her to cut the bullshit and get to work.  You should have seen my mother’s face when the caseworker handed her a list of jobs- GUARANTEED JOBS.

“Um, err, I can’t work, ” my mother lied.  “I have a bad…knee… Can I get disability?”

The state of Texas tried to call BULLSHIT but mother found a liberal lawyer and  some quack doctor to claim that she was 35% disabled.  Back on foodstamps she went- happy as a government fed clam.  Beyond these incidents, there was much that occurred which persuaded me to switch parties but still I stayed on the jackass boat, aborting any signs of mutiny in the womb before it manifested itself at the voting booth.

I know, I know…How could you Afrocity?

But understand that bullshit is an acquired taste.  That is to say, if someone feeds you crap election year in and election year out, you only know… well…crap.   You become accustomed to the broken promises and pointing fingers game.  You accept your permanent place in the war of America’s needy versus America’s greedy.  Despite your inner brilliance- your wiser conscious plea to ask questions and get real answers, you continue to eat the plate of bullshit set before you.  Some like myself ate with small spoonfuls -drinking huge glasses of water between each swallow.  Others like my mother and most Obama supporters  put the feedbag on with gusto.

The day I woke up and took a much needed shower, was the day the bullshit became not a meal for my liberal friends but something to throw at me.

Friend: Afrocity how can you turn your back on everything the Democrats have done for black people”

Afrocity: Like………….

You see Afrocity does not play the bullshit game anymore.  Give the donkeys their breast cancer hued pink slip.



The Democrats do not have the answers and maybe the Republicans don’t either.  However, do not spin the liberal bullshit message that because the Republicans do not have all the answers or because President Bush got us into this mess,  the American people  should continue to support Obama and the current imbeciles in Washington.

No more.

Wake up zombies.  Stop drinking KoolAid.  Stop listening to this walking campaign slogan of a president you elected. The man does not have answers, he has more divisive rhetoric- NOTHING MORE.   To borrow from his analogy of America as a vehicle stuck in a ditch…How can Obama get you out of the ditch when he is in the car expecting you to push? Refuse or get in the way of his best friend- the rear view mirror, and he add you to the list of many to run over when the car gets started.

Wake up America and wipe the bullshit from your mouths.  It is time to make some changes to the menu.

Happy Birthday Autographed Letter Signed April 8, 2010

Cakes By One of my favorite artists, Wayne Thiebaud

A sense of accomplishment is in the air. Today is the first anniversary of ALS. Wow an entire year. What brought me, lil ol’ Afrocity to create this blog in the first place? In short, after not quite fitting in at The Confluence and not quite fitting in at Little Green Footballs (which turned out to be a liberal blog disguised as a center right blog or some strange experiment in blogger as evil puppet master), I decided to get my own diggs.

"Lemon cake" by Wayne Thiebaud

Shedding a political spouse, in my case the Democratic Party, required some solitude and space to explore my values. What do I really want for my country? What causes are worth fighting for? I had to ask myself these things because for so long I played in the liberal sandbox watching my pals kick down castles of military defense, christian values, parental rights and all sorts of things that really mattered to me. Externally, I muttered yeah “fuck the military!”,  “burn that flag” , “sure the government owes blacks” but internally, especially as I aged, I winced at mostly everything liberals stood for with the exception of women’s rights.   Compassion and equal opportunity for all is something I can agree with.  I had it in me to be a good liberal, however I also had it in me to be a better conservative.

There is a difference between being a compassionate person and an enabler.  Liberals have a tendency to dramatize the human condition,  particularly that of minorities and any one they see as down-trodden.   When you just spend, spend, spend money- tax dollars- on “compassionate programs” , you have to take a step back in order to see if those programs are really helping anyone or are they enabling a persistent problem to turn into a generational saga.   Let’s take welfare programs for example and you know how I feel about those.

"Watermelon Slices" by Wayne Thiebaud

One of the reasons I am against government assistance is because I grew up on it.  And yes, it fed me, kept me adequately healthy, but did it advance me or my mother?  No.  Did it pay for my prom dress?  No.  Prom was a big deal to a 17 year old girl.  How would the $250 government check pay for my prom gown, my hair appointment,  my #352 pink dyed shoes to match my dress and my jewelry?   The answer was, it would not.  Mother went looking for dresses at the Salvation Army store, meanwhile Afrocity began looking for a job.   This image of one of us actually working was a bit much for my mother to handle,  “you know they will cut us off, ” she warned.

"Rosebud Cakes" by Wayne Thiebaud

I did not care, I had a date with a Victor Costa gown at Nieman Marcus.   School by day, working until 1am as a hostess at a Mexican restaurant was tough.  In retrospect, it was dangerous to take the bus home so late at night.  My school work was neglected B’s morphed into C’s.  One night I was so tired, I fell asleep with the curling iron still rolled in my hair.  When you are young, you can put up with a lot and my first paycheck made all of the trouble worth it.  My first paycheck- that I earned for my work. Money not for nothing but for something I did besides being black and poor.  I came to a particular understanding that my mother had yet to achieve.  Welfare may let you survive but it doesn’t let you live.   Maybe I got the job out of necessity.  I had a need that a welfare check could not fulfill.  I had a dream about a dress but what about my life beyond the dress?  What happens when welfare will not pay for your dreams?

Republican candidates would appear on television, right away before they could speak several words, my mother would shout, “They are only for the rich people, they want to cut welfare and programs in order to hurt blacks.”    Funny how our lives did not improve much under Jimmy Carter.  Funny how mother’s life did not improve much under Bill Clinton, until she was forced to get a job because the conservative state of Texas would not let her draw a government check just for being her wonderful self.

Shakes by Wayne Thiebaud

In working, she began to buy nice things, take me to lunch, actually act and behave as mother.  When she lost the job, she lost her sense of self again.  Being 65, by that time, the government was there waiting for her to pick up the pieces.  Back she went to waiting for their check.  When she died, she had not more than $345 in her bank account.  I reported her deceased and the government took back $325 and left her with $20.  Why was I angry?  True, it was Uncle Sam’s money to give to her and she was dead.  However, could he not at least left her with some dignity and money to be buried with? He left her with what she came to him with…Nothing.  Nothing at all but her life and the clothes on her back.

The reason I created this blog was to chronicle the thoughts and feelings of a reformed liberal.  To some degree I am still evolving.  One of the problems some of my critics have with me is my ability to be so compassionate and pathetic, yet turn into a brutal critic of the Obama administration.  A lot of people, especially those of color call me a self-loathing Auntie Tom who has sold out.  They think I am really a liberal and delusional on some level about my move towards conservatism.   I have struggled this year with the enormity of my exodus from Donkeyville.   People especially, PUMA’s have posted and gone.  Once friends are now distant acquaintances in the political blogosphere.

"8 Lipsticks" by Wayne Thiebaud

Am I happier now having left the Democrats? Oh definitely yes.  That party is unrecognizable to me.  This country and the direction it is moving in is unrecognizable to me.

Am I a well rounded conservative? Oh definitely, no.  I remain pro-choice.  There are many things to admire about the pro-life movement but a woman’s choice is a woman’s choice and she should always have the freedom to make that choice.

As this blog continues, I am always hoping to attract people who are willing to hear and understand both sides of an issue.

Before you can help people, you have to first listen to them.  This simple  practice  is something that is severely lacking in the Obama administration and among many compassionate liberals.

Give people what they need, not what you think they need.  Give people the ability to help themselves, not a lifetime sentence to be helped by you.  You cannot wave a magic wand and expect to end world hunger, wars, pain, sickness, global warming and paper cuts using other people’s money.  Your reward will be debt, depression and a lowered moral among those who actually do contribute to society.

You cannot have your cake and eat it too.

New Gallup Poll: Americans are going the “Conservative Route” June 15, 2009

According to the results of a new Gallup poll, Sean Hannity will have something to smile about tonight:

“Conservatives” Are Single-Largest Ideological Group

Percentage of “liberals” higher this decade than in early ’90s

by Lydia Saad

PRINCETON, NJ Thus far in 2009, 40% of Americans interviewed in national Gallup Poll surveys describe their political views as conservative, 35% as moderate, and 21% as liberal. This represents a slight increase for conservatism in the U.S. since 2008, returning it to a level last seen in 2004. The 21% calling themselves liberal is in line with findings throughout this decade, but is up from the 1990s.

Liberals, Libraries, and Child Pornography by Jenn Q. Public May 3, 2009

Images by Red Kite Animation

The following article by Jenn Q. Public* originally appeared as a guest post on Red Alerts.

It’s a no-brainer. You see someone looking at child porn, you call the cops, right?

Not if you want to keep your job at the Lindsay branch of the Tulare County Library system in California.

When library assistant Brenda Biesterfeld saw 39-year-old Donny Lynn Chrisler viewing images of naked boys on a Tulare County library computer last year, she told her supervisor, Judi Hill. Hill’s solution was to have Biesterfeld hand Chrisler a note explaining that his behavior was not permissible and that he would be banned from the library if it happened again. Biesterfeld was explicitly told she should not report the incident to authorities.

Fortunately, Biesterfeld recognized the inappropriateness of administering the equivalent of a time out to a guy checking out child porn in public. She helped officers catch Chrisler in the act of viewing kiddie porn images, resulting in his arrest. Additional images were found in his home, and he is now awaiting trial.

When she told her supervisor what she had done, Biesterfeld was admonished for lack of loyalty to the County, and even threatened. Biesterfeld told Hill she was not just a county employee, but a mother and a citizen as well.

Two days later, Brenda Biesterfeld was fired, just before her employee probationary period expired.

I’m sure most of you join me in applauding Brenda Biesterfeld as a hero, a model citizen who puts the safety of children before her career. But I do want to impress upon all of you that this type of situation is more common than you think, and is symptomatic of a larger problem with the “professional ethics” drilled into future librarians by graduate programs and the American Library Association.

I ought to know – I’ve been through it.

After college, I began working in an academic library and decided to pursue a graduate degree in Library Science. If nothing else, my indoctrination into librarianship drove home one point: never, ever give law enforcement officials information about a library patron.

shhh

Those who obstruct law enforcement are deified as defenders of First Amendment rights, while those who adhere to legal mandates by cooperating with local or federal officials are pariahs in the library world. I was 22 and in love with libraries and books. Nerdy, I know, but championing First Amendment rights, actually helping to defend the American public from censorship, sounded so noble.

And I believed all this discussion of professional philosophy and information ethics was purely theoretical. Surely no pedophile would use the public access computers in the library to download kiddie porn.

But then, a technically savvy coworker came to me, pale and visibly shaken, and told me he had found horrible, unspeakable images of children on a library computer. The hard drive, he said, was completely filled with movies and stills. He also said he knew who had downloaded the pornographic content.

I went with him to offer moral support as he informed our supervisor. She assured us she would handle things in consultation with the college administration.

I’m embarrassed to write this, but in all honesty, I moved on from that incident pretty quickly. Unlike my coworker, I didn’t have the images emblazoned on my very synapses, I didn’t know the identity of the person who had downloaded the vile stuff, and I had every faith that my boss, a person for whom I had great respect and admiration, would handle the situation appropriately.

Weeks later, I discovered that this extremely liberal east coast college had disappeared the incident. The network logs had been wiped clean, the hard drive had been destroyed, and my questions about whether the FBI had been notified were skillfully evaded.

I was naive.
I watched my coworker, the guy who initially found the child porn, literally make himself sick as he struggled with whether or not to circumvent the academic administration by reporting the issue directly to law enforcement. Unlike me, he wasn’t sure we should trust they had been notified. I decided he was probably right when subtly, and then not so subtly, he was pressured into resigning his position. On his last day, my coworker told me more about the guy who had downloaded the materials.

He was a student in the childhood education program.

That was the beginning of the end for my library career. Over time, I found that this was not the only point at which my sense of right and wrong diverged from the philosophical underpinnings of 21st century librarianship. But I’ll save those stories for another day.

shhh_both

Today my concern is that a subset of librarians continue to aid and abet pedophiles in the name of free speech and privacy. Their mission to promote intellectual freedom by ensuring patron confidentiality nearly always seems to trump their responsibility to protect our children from pedophiles.

Librarians cite the protection of personal liberties as a reason for withholding records or failing to report crimes to law enforcement. They don’t want to provide The Man with information that might incriminate someone based on their literary proclivities – you know, like child pornography.

Isn’t it time we knocked members of the American Library Association off their high horses, or at least ripped those First Amendment cloaks from their shoulders? Here’s a thought: maybe a little critical thinking could help librarians distinguish between genuine criminal activity and odd or embarrassing taste in literature. Guided by something as simple as good judgment, librarians should be able to report those who download child pornography without inadvertently snaring law-abiding patrons in a net cast too wide.

Unfortunately, after attending library school, I can tell you unequivocally that critical thinking and good judgment are not part of the curriculum.

And that’s what makes supporting librarian heroes like Brenda Biesterfeld and protesting public library policies that enable criminality all the more important. Make it your business to find out what would happen if Donny Chrisler was downloading child porn at your library, and if necessary, stick your neck out like Brenda Biesterfeld.

Say Hello to My Liberal Friend: Moonbat Monday the First in a Series April 27, 2009

moonbat-22

Moonbat Specimen: Liberalis Stupidus

Early Moonbat Specimen: Liberalis Stupidus


Ever experienced being a traveler in a strange land?
Can’t understand the language the natives speak?
You feel awkward while adjusting to the ins and outs of a new culture.

That was the way I felt as a democrat. For some reason I was in the foreign country but I didn’t understand why.I was there simply because my mother had brought me. This especially became apparent during 9/11. I lived in New York City at the time and was effected personally by the events of the tragedy.

When Bush sent troops into Afghanistan I had friends that were so angry they took to the streets in protest. The following conservation made it oh so obvious that I was a foreigner in a liberal land.

LIBERAL FRIEND:Muthafuckers sent troops into Afghanistan. Fucking Assholes. Bush is suck a fucking ASSHOLE
AFROCITY:”But they attacked us!!! We have to defend ourselves and let them know that they can’t do this again. They killed over 3,000 people. LIBERAL FRIEND:What’s the matter with you? We can’t just go attacking countries just because they attack us.
AFROCITY: Why not? Who knows what else Bin Laden has planned for us.
LIBERAL FRIEND: (Looks at me like I am carrying a gun in a school yard, may ask to see my liberal passport at any moment)
AFROCITY: (I want to end this conversation. I am angry someone I know has died. I need to finish cleaning the dust and debris from my apartment)
LIBERAL FRIEND:Karma deserves to bite America in the ass.
AFROCITY: I find it interesting that you are a self professed atheist yet you believe in Karma.
LIBERAL FRIEND: Karama is not a deity.
AFROCITY: Touche, very well then. (goes back to watching CNN)

My liberal friend protested the strikes against Afghanistan. I stayed home and watched the country change. Every brownstone in Park Slope, Brooklyn had a US flag hanging from somewhere. Protesting as an act is something that never appealed to me- a liberals right of passage I preferred to skip.

Moonbat Specimen: Liberalis Goracle Delusionalis

Highly Evolved Moonbat Specimen: Liberalis Goracle Delusionalis

“Days of Rage” pictures from the 1960′s looked crazy to me. Flower children, Charles Manson, Woodstock, riots… My brother was into the Black Power thing, had a huge afro that came with a hair pic permanently attached. He was about 17 years old and a bastion of black and pissed off critical thought as he sat around a card table with his gang buddies smoking pot. Angry over their plight as black men, they would play cards, smoke weed, drink, smoke weed, drink, play cards. I was continually regalled with tales of “the man”, and how that spearheaded the black revolution. Fuck the man. Fuck the white man’s war. He played a lot of The Doors and Pink Floyd. As a three year old I was amused by the whole thing, it was fun. There was always a certain point of the evening where I didn’t have to hide anymore and my brother would prop me on his knee so I could play too–and drink beer. (Which is why I may loathe the taste of it today).

That depiction was one of the good days. By the time I was six there was a clear message from my family that black people were basically screwed and I should be angry about it from birth. My brother carved his entire social identity on that notion. He became a liberal moonbat and began to involve himself in my social life. Holly Hobbie was one of my favorites. My bedroom was devoted to the character. I had the dolls, the house, the clothes including the bonnet. Brother did not approve of my obsession with Holly. She was a part of the establishment. Holly Hobbie was white and very ummmm, boho… Vermont folksy,blond hair and blue eyes, makes gooseberry jam and moonshine.

Holly Hobby. Racism ripped us apart.

Holly Hobbie. She is not a moonbat but racism eventually ripped us apart.

She lived alone with a cat and fed the mouse some cheese every day. You know, a free spirit who would grow up to be an environmentalist or a midwife. She was without a doubt a liberal, but Holly was definitely not a card carrying “down with the cause” black power kind of gal. Wild berries and honey with scones had very little to do with powdered milk and Spam sandwiches. His complaining to my mom about how little Afrocity was falling into a white man’s trap fell on death ears. She told him to go to school, get a job, or get out of the house. One day while insulted by my mom’s racial ignorance he was being especially nasty and unbearable. I was sitting in front of the TV watching Dream Of Jeanie, eating a bowl of Neapolitan ice cream in my Holly Hobbie dress. Dr. Bellows came on the screen. I had a crush on him (don’t ask).

“Mom, I am gonna marry Dr. Bellows someday” I declared.
“I know.” Mom answered from way back in the kitchen.

Faster than I could fold my arms and blink, my brother grabbed me up from the floor. My expression smiling and laughter at first but he got rough. “Ouch, stop that. MOMMY”
I could not believe it. He tore off my Holly Hobbie dress and I stood there in middle of the living room floor butt naked. I grabbed for the dress kicking and screaming while being dragged across the orange psychedelic linoleum. Mom came out from the kitchen and there was a battle that left scars. I had been shamed and bitten. The dress was beyond repair and that was my first encounter with a moonbat.

From the Urban Dictionary:

1.Moonbat

An unthinking or insane leftist — in other words, most modern leftists.

Moonbat can also be used as an adjective, e.g. a moonbat professor. According to the Wikipedia entry for moonbat, the word was coined in 2002 by the Editor of Samizdata, Perry de Havilland, and was a variation on the name of radical British activist and columnist George Monbiot.

Originally, the term “moonbat” was intended to be more politically neutral, and described wackos on the left and the right, but it quickly acquired its current usage of being applied almost exclusively to those on the left.

The term also references the moon much in the same way that “lunatic” refers to the insanity-causing powers of the full moon (luna = moon). Bloggers occasionally analyze the behavior patterns of various moonbat “species” as if they were actual animals, and even give them satirical Linnaean taxonomical names, such as “moonbattus berkeleyensis”.

Okay I get it. You mean like this?

Another type of moonbat in its natural habitat. <i>moonbattus berkeleyensis</i>

Another type of moonbat in its natural habitat. moonbattus berkeleyensis

2. moonbat

Any number of irrational and hysterical individuals whose self-indulgent intellectual indolence has led them to a visceral hatred of all things western. Moonbats tend to frequent anti-globalization and numerous other forms of rallies, demonstrations, sit-ins, and the like, tend to look dirty, and can frequently be heard using terms such as, “imperialism”. The mark of a true moonbat is the total lack of perspective (i.e. “if a dictator provides free healthcare, I like that dictator” – actual moonbat quote).

Hmmmm. I got it!!!

A common moonbat specimen <i> Liberalis Vulgaris</i>

A common moonbat specimen Liberalis Vulgaris


Absolutely frightening. No wonder I never liked demonstrations. I have always fought their attempts to convince me that my country sucks. At first glance, they seem to be concerned with what’s going on around them. Purposeful and social in nature. Outdoorsy types reveling in the smell of trees and grass (cough, cough). They seemed normal but as I interacted with them, something unnerved me. It gnawed at my brain like a rat and was intensely liberal in nature. Then it came to me. They are always angry. Bitching seems to suit them well as they never want to see both sides. Diversions are created in order to avoid coming up with pragmatic solutions.

I began to avoid, treated them well in every respect. The sight of John Kerry sickened me. I lied and said I voted for him just to appease my liberal friends. Conflicted, I did not vote at all that year. The assault and moonbattery grew during the Democratic primaries of 2008. Forget having any sort of realistic dialogue. They had a skewed portrait of democracy and free speech. Speech was free as long as it was what they liked to hear. Do these ghastly moonbats honestly represent the entire left wing?

Stay Tuned and we will find out.

Hypocrisy Files: If It Were Not For “Whining Liberals”, Blacks Would Still Be Slaves April 11, 2009

This idiot thought it was Sarah Palin that said the US had 57 States. She was wrong. It was Barack Obama

This idiot thought it was Sarah Palin that said the US had 57 States. She was wrong. It was Barack Obama

You’ve got to love the many liberals that claim they are for equal rights and diversity yet when presented with opinions that differ from their own, they became verbally abusive and sometimes even racist.

I once had a self described liberal Obamabot say to me :

“I didn’t know that they allowed Blacks to be conservatives”

Now why do get the feeling that when those on the far left understand that I am a Republican, they dispatch the Bloodhounds to hunt me down in order to bring back to the DNC plantation where I belong?

Iron mask, collar, leg shackles and spurs used to restrict African Americans who leave the DNC plantation. No I am just teasing you. This is a rare woodcut print of shackles used to restrain slaves. ca. 1807 by Samuel Wood.  Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division

Now wait a minute. I thought that conservatives were supposed to be the racists and the liberals were the good guys who believe that African Americans can accomplish whatever we set our minds to.

EXCEPT BEING A CONSERVATIVE

It seems that whenever poor little ol’ me Black Afrocity attempts to express myself as a conservative, I get put back in my place and told that I had better get back to the plantation of victimhood that the Democrats created for my people. How dare I explore political ideologies outside of liberalism. It is also like not wanting me to learn how to read. Once it is learned that I can read, I am ridiculed for it and reminded how good the “master” is to me.

For example, take the following statement that a woman on another blog made to me upon learning that I was a conservative. I told her that I thought liberals were whiny. This angered her and she retorted with this:

Would this be a really bad time to bring up the fact that, were it not for liberals “whining,” you’d still be sitting in the back of the bus?

REALLY??? WOW!

So now the liberal argument is that only liberals contributed in the fight for civil rights.

Another poster said I was ignorant and uneducated and that I could not read. Now if I was a liberal and he said that to me then he would be a racist because he is assuming that I am uneducated and ignorant…Why I do not know. However because I am a conservative that makes the statement not racist and therefore it is okay. Remember you cannot ever criticize Obama because that will make you a a racist.

What we are discussing here is a popular tactic of Democrats and the left. Demonize all Republicans and conservatives as racist so African Americans and other minorities including women and gays will stay loyal to the Democrats because we “owe” them.

For the record Abraham Lincoln was a Republican and so was Martin Luther King. Obama failed to mention that fact during his campaign and subsequent “Lincolnesque” inaugural dinner.

Did you know that:

In the 26 major civil rights votes after 1933, a majority of Democrats opposed civil rights legislation in over 80 percent of the votes. By contrast, the Republican majority favored civil rights in over 96 percent of the votes.

It was actually the Democrats who supported slavery. During the Reconstruction Era, Republicans supported African Americans and nearly all Blacks were Republicans until the 1930′s. Even President Eisenhower received large majorities of African American votes in his 1952 and 1956 elections.

John F. Kennedy’s record on civil rights is often exaggerated.

As the senator from Massachusettes, JFK passed on the chance to vote on the 1957 Civil Rights Act which was supported by Lyndon B.Johnson. It was passed with the help of Republicans.

Later JFK passed a watered- down version of the bill in 1964 because he was worried that the Black vote might return to the Republicans.

Democrats have wrongfully attributed the success of the civil rights movement to themselves without giving any credit to Republicans.

If Democrats take the credit for my not having to sit at the back of a bus, why don’t they not take the blame for the many unsuccessful programs they implemented which caused the victimization and dependence of African Americans on the US government to take care of their problems rather than relying upon themselves?

After all what would be better for African Americans?

This?
