- THE PATRIOT POST - JUNE 30, 2021 - MARK ALEXANDER -
Democrats are the historical architects and political beneficiaries of systemic racism.
“The nation which indulges towards another an habitual hatred, or an habitual fondness, is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest.” —George Washington (1796)
This week, as we prepare to celebrate our American Independence Day and the launch of the most enduring assertion of individual Liberty in the history of the world, it is worth taking a look at another “independence day” codified into federal law two weeks ago.
June 19 is now a federal holiday. Historically known as “Jubilee Day” or “Emancipation Day,” the celebration originated in Galveston, Texas, to commemorate that day in 1865 when General Order No. 3 proclaimed the freedom of remaining slaves in Texas — then the last state of the Confederacy. It enforced Republican President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, which took effect on January 1 of 1863.
The official holiday, called Juneteenth National Independence Day, received unanimous support in the Senate and overwhelming bipartisan support in the House — the only objections being how Democrats had politicized the commemoration. President Donald Trump advocated for the date’s national holiday status last year, and it’s the first national holiday to receive legal status since the establishment of Martin Luther King Jr. Day by Ronald Reagan in 1983.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) rightly noted: “As Texans we’ve long understood the importance of Juneteenth. When President Trump said it should be a holiday, many of us said it was long overdue. We should be proud and unified in celebrating this day as an important historical milestone for freedom and inalienable rights. Freedom is always worth celebrating! …
Republicans have been and always will be the party of freedom over tyranny and liberty over oppression.”
But more to the point, the chairman of the Republican Party of Texas, our friend Allen West, observed, “Juneteenth is a celebration of why the Republican Party was established in 1854, the abolition of slavery.” West also noted: “Today, the Democrats are economically enslaving Blacks and have turned inner city communities into modern plantations of welfare and economic dependence. Juneteenth is a celebration of why the Republican Party was established in 1854, the abolition of slavery. Only a flaming incompetent idiot would give the party of the jackass any credit for Juneteenth.”
Our grassroots writer Patrick Hampton (who identifies as “Brown,” not “Black”), after seeing photos of Biden surrounded by Black members of Congress at the Juneteenth signing, observed, “You know, 155 years ago, their white Democrat masters would have considered them ‘house Negroes.’”
To that end, in Chicago alone over the new Juneteenth holiday weekend, there were hundreds of assaults and 10 murders, mostly Black victims assaulted and murdered by mostly Black assailants. Much to the disappointment of Joe Biden, none of the victims this year or last were murdered by “white supremacists.”
As our Nate Jackson asked regarding the proposed holiday, “So why are Democrats so intent on memorializing an extraordinary Republican accomplishment?” He concluded, “Many reasons, but deceitful pandering is chief among them.”
At the forefront of that deceit, Biden has devoted a lot of rhetorical gas to the creation of a mythical bogeyman of “white supremacy,” which he insists is “the most lethal terrorist threat to the homeland today.” Two weeks ago, I outlined the fallacy and absurdity of Biden’s “white supremacy” claims, a BIG Lie to perpetuate his delusional assertion that the Capitol riot was a white supremacist insurrection.
Sidebar: We’re nearing the end of our 2021 Independence Day Campaign, so please join us! Our mission is, first and foremost, to support Liberty, and our message is more critical now than ever, given the leftist chokehold on our nation. Please take a moment to support our 2021 Independence Day Campaign now.
Of course, his delusional reference to “white supremacists” and “right-wing extremists” is, by extension, a thinly veiled code for anyone who supported the conservative domestic and foreign policies of the Trump administration over the last four years.
However, America is no more besieged by systemic racism than it is besieged by white supremacists — at least not by the definitions of “systemic racism” and “white supremacist” Biden and his Demo cadres promote.
However, there is a widespread and much more subversive form of white supremacy across our nation: white supremacists who are in fact the architects and authors of systemic racism. These racial supremacists benignly hold the view that the White race is superior to other races, and they demonstrate that constantly by pandering to Black and Hispanic Americans — but would never admit to such white supremacist beliefs in words.
In a July 2000 speech to the NAACP, President George W. Bush declared to great applause: “Discrimination is still a reality, even when it takes different forms. Instead of Jim Crow, there’s racial redlining and profiling. Instead of separate but equal, there is separate and forgotten.”
He then asserted these memorable words: “I will confront another form of bias: the soft bigotry of low expectations.”
The harsh reality is, there is nothing “soft” about the “bigotry of low expectations.” In fact, that bigotry is the direct result of white supremacy, but not the “KKK” variety. It’s the result of a much more insidious and subversive variety because the wolves who perpetuate it masquerade as the sheep they are ostensibly protecting.
Thus, I would submit that the most dangerous white supremacist in America is … Joe Biden. After all, he’s the titular head of the white privilege Democrats who have built a political empire pandering to the “lesser” races. Biden is not of the variety of white supremacists who are overtly racist, but the variety whose pandering to Black and Hispanic people is framed by the Democrats’ bigotry of low expectations — implying non-whites are an inferior and subservient constituency.
Moreover, as a direct result of generations of Democrat Party oppression of Black and Brown people, the most obvious racists in America, those who demonstrate overt hatred for others based on their race or ethnicity, are the large cadres of black supremacists, most notably now the radicals who lead the Marxist “Black Lives Matter” movement.
But the most influential and insidious of white supremacists are the Democrat Party’s regressive leaders and their white privilege leftist adherents who placate black Americans, in effect segregating them into a modern underclass of people who they insist are incapable of taking care of themselves. And every black politician who buys into such ugliness is the equivalent of what the Democrat slave owners once referred to as “house slaves,” those who were trustworthy enough to be in direct association with their white masters.
The result of their bigotry is the racial Balkanization of America.
As political observer Candace Owens concludes: “Democrats know that they can no longer use physical force to enslave Blacks, as they once did. Today, they weaponize language, the media and culture to convince black people to oppress themselves. If you hold a permanent view of yourself as a victim, you become your own oppressor.”
Furthermore, as political analyst Andrew McCarthy notes in his column on the race demagogue politicians: “America has a serious racial problem. Not a racism problem, a racial problem. We have a party in power whose strategy for remaining in power is to divide the country along racial lines. Democrats calculate that urban-centered racialist tribalism, amplified by media and pop-culture allies and underwritten by cowed corporations, can cast mainstream America as a deplorable bastion of white supremacism.”
Fact is, the solution to racism is not more racism, but for Democrats, the systemic exploitation of race is the solution to maintaining power and status quo.
As distinguished Stanford economist and author Thomas Sowell put it: “Racism is not dead. But it is on life-support, kept alive mainly by the people who use it for an excuse or to keep minority communities fearful or resentful enough to turn out as a voting bloc on election day. … Have we become a country whose leaders are charlatans, and whose people are sheep?”
Bottom line: The Democrat Party was, is, and will continue to be the agent of Black oppression. Democrats are now, simultaneously, the historical architects and political beneficiaries of the systemic racism they have institutionalized over the last century. It is Democrat policies that have kept generations of poor, mostly Black Americans ensnared and enslaved on urban poverty plantations — which they both seeded and institutionalized over the last century.
Democrats would like you to believe that the old racist Democrats swapped parties, but there was no such switch. Again, as Rep. Dan Crenshaw noted, “Republicans have been and always will be the party of freedom over tyranny and liberty over oppression.”
The Democrats’ paternalistic “anti-racism” is racism in disguise. The Democrat Party platform has, by design, kept poor people in bondage to the welfare state and consequently is the blueprint for the most enduring racial exploitation architecture in America. The Democrat Party is thus the most enduring monument to racism in America.
Finally, with regard to our Independence Day, last week Joe Biden, in his convoluted remarks about the epidemic of crime that has besieged urban communities nationwide, managed to bungle a Thomas Jefferson quote about Liberty, saying: “Those who say the blood of lib — the blood of patriots, you know, and all the stuff about how we’re going to have to move against the government. Well, the tree of liberty is not watered with the blood of patriots.”
Actually, Joe, yes it is — but notably, you neglected to recall that Jefferson actually wrote “the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
And recall that Biden said if we only obey his decrees, he’ll give us permission to gather in small groups to “make this Independence Day something special.” What’s “special” about our commemorating the signing of our Declaration of Independence is that it launched the first American Revolution against a government bent on telling us how we could live our lives…
P.S. Since we launched The Patriot Post nearly 25 years ago, we’ve grown to become the Web’s most influential grassroots journal dedicated to the preservation of Liberty. While our annual budget is a mere fraction of the big Beltway media and policy organizations, our outreach certainly is not. Countless grassroots and grasstops conservatives rely on The Patriot Post as their primary touchstone for Liberty, and we remain the most cost-effective conservative force multiplier on the Web. But we couldn’t have done it without the voluntary financial generosity of Patriots like you. Please support our 2021 Independence Day Campaign today. We only have four days left to ensure funding for our daily operations through the end of the third quarter. Please help push us over the top today.
