Black Racism: Is It Possible

February 22, 2010

‘Jeremiah Wright isn’t a racist. You need to be in power to be a racist.’ That is the cry from the left as their constant charges of racism against the right are met with notions of Jeremiah Wright. Is this true? Can you really not be racist unless you have a measure of power against those of whom you are ‘subjugating’? This issue is not complex. If you hate or have a bias against an entire race of people without cause, you are a racist. Rush Limbaugh is not a racist because he doesn’t like Obama. Al Sharpton is not a racist because he dislikes George Bush. Let’s get that out of the way first and foremost.

Now moving on to Jeremiah Wright. Jeremiah Wright is a racist because he makes remarks like ‘Hillary doesn’t know what’s it like to be a black man. Hillary ain’t never been called a *N-word*’. This man’s constant bringing race into a supposedly spiritual event on Sundays makes the Gospel of Jesus Christ into a mockery and turns church into a platform for ‘hate whitey’ speech.

But if this was an isolated remark, it would be okay. But when the man professes great admiration for James Cone, who said this:

“Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community … Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love. ”

(from William R Jones, “Divine Racism: The Unacknowledged Threshold Issue for Black Theology, in African-American Religious Thought: An Anthology”)

That raises some eyebrows does it not? Cone is a racist straight up. You can’t tell me that just because one perceives oneself to be subjugated or oppressed that you cannot be racist. To tell me that you can be racist because you are not in power takes a leap of irrationality that I’m not willing to take.

But it doesn’t end there. Race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson make their livelihood off of stoking the ‘victim card’ for black people. There are many blacks that will take issue with them and have. Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell, Bill Cosby, Walter Williams, Alan Keyes, and Ken Blackwell come to mind as black people that have made success for themselves without hustlers like Shaprton and Jackson and haven’t played the victim card. There are more just like them. Letting people succeed based on their merit is not racist, it is American.

Which brings me to my next point. Affirmative Action is racist. Yes, you heard me. There’s very few who are willing to tackle this subject without the fear of reprisal and chants of ‘racist, racist’. Affirmative takes a large measure of the qualifications of the applicant out and places in it’s stead the color of the applicant. Take for instance the New Haven firefighters. Qualified white firemen that worked hard and risked their lives every day were denied promotions due to the fact that not enough minority candidates passed the test for promotion. Thank heavens the Supreme Court ultimately decided in favor of those brave men. Affirmative Action is a drain on our system and rewards not hard work, but color. Here’s a question, if you were in a burning building, would you want an unqualified white person trying to save you or a black person that was trained in those situations? Or if you were being held hostage, would you want an unqualified black marksmen trying to snipe the hostage taker? I want the most qualified marksmen regardless of color. Affirmative Action if used in such cases, could kill me. What say you about that Al or Jesse?

But I digress, saying that a minority can’t be racist is insane. If someone took a gun and shot you and your family shouting slurs about you being white, or brown or any other color, wouldn’t that be racist in undertone? A black person hating a white person because he or she is white is no less evil than a white person hating a black person because he or she is black. I’m pulling no punches. As a shout-out to my friends in academia, here’s looking at you Hippie Professor, the academia’s definition of racism just doesn’t fly in the real world.

Romney vs. Obama

February 18, 2010

Mitt Romney slammed President Obama at the first day of the annual Conservative Political Action Committee amid a fired up GOP crowd. “President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and their team have failed the American people, and that is why their majority will be out the door,” said Romney to cheers and applause from a joint session of GOP and Tea Party activists. In what appeared to be another smart move from conservatives to meld the tea party into the GOP, leaders from John Boehner to Mitt Romney slammed the Democrats unmercifully, leading the way for prominent Republicans to rise to the top of 2012 contenders. Many already consider Romney to be the front-runner despite Sarah Palin’s popularity with the tea party patriots. “When it comes to pinning blame, pin the tail on the donkeys,” Romney quipped and the crowd erupted in cheers. It is quite clear that Obama and the Dems are not popular among conservatives.

Here’s what I think. I think that ultimately Mitt Romney will be the likely nominee. I think that his economic know-how is worlds ahead of most every other GOP in the field and might have finally gathered conservatives to his tent. I think that Mitt Romney gives the party the best chance of winning back the White House in 2012.

Introducing Romney was the wildly popular fiscally conservative, socially moderate Republican from MA Scott Brown. This would give Romney more credibility among fiscal conservatives. Romney was a prominent supporter of Brown and many argue that he was one of the driving forces behind the win in MA. Scott Brown called Romney ‘one of the bright lights of the Republican party’.

Romney has several things going for him in a run against Barack Obama. For those who support Palin, let me first say, I like Sarah Palin. I think she’s a genuine person, I think she shares the conservative values that many Americans share. But in a debate with Obama (who is as polished and slick as a used car salesman) she would most likely be chewed up and spit out. Her debate skills are not up to the level of Obama who, being trained in the bare-knuckle politicking of Chicago, would use all means at his disposal to obliterate her. Romney on the other hand, is an excellent debater. He is smart and quick on his feet. He knows everything there is to know about economics and could probably tie Obama into a knot on the issue.
Secondly, Romney is the graceful loser of 2008’s primary battle. The GOP has a long history of handing the nomination to the runner up of the previous primary. His grace was evident as opposed to Mike Huckabee who held on as long as he could despite having no chance whatsoever of winning against McCain. He then, despite claims of animosity between the two, campaigned for McCain and Palin and did everything in his power to campaign for other Republicans. He has been the consummate professional when it came to keeping himself out of the spotlight and instead focusing attention on the party nominee.

Third, despite being appealing to conservatives, he could also, through his economic policy, reach out to independents. He can be charming and convincing to independents whose minds might have already been poisoned against Sarah Palin. Sarah is a great conservative, but despite being the largest group, Dems and Independents outnumber us. Therefore we do need to grab some of the independent vote, and Romney is poised to do so.

I think that if the economy remains stagnant or worsens by 2012 there is no way that the Republicans could blow this chance. I think that Obama is doomed to one term if the economy does not turn around and turn around quickly. If it doesn’t, Romney is poised to win big in the next presidential cycle.


Clinton To Attack Tea Party

February 17, 2010

According to www.biggovernment.com Bill Clinton is organizing a pushback to the tea party movement. He and his team are going to ‘identify 7 or 8 national leaders’ of the movement and then try to either threaten them or bribe them into turning. With an inside man/woman they will be able to try and tear the movement apart at the seams. The others that aren’t able to be converted will be subjected to smear tactics and character assassinations.

This is typical of the left. Instead of recognizing that this is a legitimate grassroots movement, they will try and find a ‘leading man’ as it were and use him/her against his/her compatriots in the movement. Unfortunately for them, the tea party has no real leaders as it springs up from the people, just as the founders intended it.

It could get ugly as the progressive movement fights for it’s life against the tea party patriots. A big government Congress and President are fighting against the will of the people and are going to go bare-knuckle very soon as they try and stifle the growing movement that, if successful, will damage the progressive movement unlike any other damage it has seen in a century. Keep your eyes open America. Pugna in Conservatives, nostrum victoria est nox noctis!


The Demise of Free Speech in America

February 15, 2010

Did you know that if you disagree with Obama you are a racist? News to you? Not to me, you see I’ve been traveling over the web, looking into liberal blogs to get my jollies and insert my Informed Opinion. What I found disturbed me, and somewhat sickened me. I found that the left was in full fledged attack mode against anyone who dared raise a reviling accusation against The One. The same left that called Bush a fascist, made him out to be as bad as or worse than Hitler, that said he had the blood of millions on his and his administration’s hands were now throwing a rather nasty hissy fit against anyone speaking out against Obama.

And there charge? Racism. I was called racist outright and in veiled references. I, and other conservatives like me, were told that we were racists and backwards and that we had no legitimate beef with the president and basically that our arguments were worthless and shouldn’t be listened to. Huh, funny, you see I thought that we would be at least tolerated because of the left’s undying tolerance and respect for all walks of life. Yeah I know, funny isn’t it? Conservatives have been labeled racist by the unions, the media, the vast left wing conspiracy, Jimmy Carter, Ed Rendell… am I missing anyone? That idiot from the New Black Panthers.

It is now vogue for liberals to try and shut down free speech by trying to make us sounds like racists. I don’t mind name-calling. If a liberal calls me names I can dress him down in thirteen different ways, but when you try to shut down debate by building walls and destroying a constitutional right, that makes me mad! Free speech is what this country is built upon. In societies wherein free speech is squelched, dictators and despots invariably rise to the top. In countries wherein free speech is regarded as dangerous or inflammatory and is subsequently shut down, democracy ceases and only certain speech is allowed. This is the antithesis of America and her ideals. Liberals know this, yet they don’t mind. They don’t mind because they are now on top and see America elected Obama as proof of a ‘fundamental’ shift in American thinking. Truth be told, their mandate is much smaller and slimmer and is in the process of being revoked. They don’t think they’ll ever fall out of power, but due to their attack on free speech, America is waking up.

Glenn Beck. What comes to mind when I say his name? If you are a tea partier, you might think patriot, if you’re a liberal, crazy comes to mind. Whatever you think of Glenn Beck it is undeniable what the left is trying to do to him. Instead of debating with him on the facts, they insult him, call him over the top, stupid, crazy, fat or some other insulting and derogatory name. Whoopi Goldberg called him a ‘lying sack of dog mess’. Wow! Tolerance only goes one way huh?

Beck, and Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, O’Reilly, and everyone else that is catching on to the left, the left wants shut down. And guess what, they are all defenders of free speech. What is do d@mn dangerous about free speech? Free speech allows the folly and treason of many liberals to be exposed. Americans don’t want one sided news, that’s why they are turning off CNN, NBC, MSNBC and other mainstream media channels. They want two opposing sides stating their cases in a respectful manner. Free speech causes that. Talk radio allows for that voice of dissent to come through despite liberal media bias on the mainstream media. Look at the coverage of Palin or the tea party protests. Practically every story done by the media was negative towards both. Yet through the internet, talk radio and Fox News the REAL news that tea partiers are patriotic, small government leaning conservatives got out. This terrifies the left.

Liberals know that to control the country and to ‘fundamentally transform the United States of America’ they have to control the flow of information. Thus the demonization of conservatives. If they can convince the American people that Glenn Beck and other conservatives are racists, they can seize control of the media and therefore the American people will be brainwashed or propagandized by their ilk.

Free speech needs to survive in America. Talk radio and the internet is at the forefront of the fight. Blogs and radio shows are doing battle right now over whether you are a racist simply for disagreeing with Obama. Prove that you’re not. There was a very lively conversation/debate going on over at http://hippieprofessor.com/2010/02/10/ahhh-sarah-about-that-hopey-changey-thing/ on this very topic. Don’t let the title fool you, down the page comes in the lines about racism and Obama. If conservatives allow liberals to demonize us and take away our legitimacy, the downfall of free speech in America is not far away.

So the next time that a liberal calls you racist, laugh it off and dress him down with a superior Informed Argument against big government and other liberal ideas. Do it long enough and effective enough and he’ll leave with his tail between his legs. AND, free speech will survive.


New Look!

February 14, 2010

Hello my friends. Today An Informed Blog received a, in my opinion, much needed face lift. While the original layout had worked just fine since October 16th. However, I noticed that the top looked a little sloppy and the basic layout was kind of unprofessional and cluttered. So I went with the Contempt layout, it retained the basic look and feel of the original, yet looks better. Tell me what you think.


Sarah Palin REALLY Terrifies The Left

February 13, 2010

Through my personal experiences on the internet, blogs and supposedly unbiased news sites I have become increasingly aware that Sarah Palin TERRIFIES the left in America. No one has stirred this much dislike that I can remember. The left paints her as a hick, dummy, airhead, uninformed blowhard, disingenuous cur. They try to say she doesn’t think, she’s a racist, she needs notes on her hand. She doesn’t know history and GASP she didn’t go to Stanford, Harvard or Yale. Forget about the fact that she’s actually run something unlike *cough* Obama *cough*. She has run a town, a state, a business and a family. She hasn’t traipsed all over D.C. or had an affair. (Are you listening John Edwards, Bill Clinton, Mark Sanford etc.)

So, despite the fact that she’s inherently a better person than most on Capitol Hill the vast left wing conspiracy is out to get her. One question… why? What is so bad or wrong with Palin? Easy. She’s a threat. She brings a true passion to everyone that hears her. She has the support of a vast population. And one of the most important things, she is completely unhindered by that unAmerican prospect of political correctness. In the same way that many people were, and still are, afraid to criticize Obama due to his race, Palin can criticize away. However, the liberal media finds it perfectly acceptable to bash her without any cause. The reason… she is a conservative. It has been fashionable for years now to treat conservatives contemptuously while saying that if a minority is criticized, it is racism.

But I digress. Palin does have some issues that make her less of a force in the Republican party. One, she elicits very strong emotions. She is like the Maha Rushie, Rush Limbaugh, in that there are few that have no opinion on her. She either is loved or hated. That could work against her in the independents’ minds. I think that she needs to turn around the public’s negative perception of her qualifications before she makes a serious run at the presidency.

Her delivery can be a bit jarring and disconnected when delivering a speech. This is very much something that can be corrected and I think that she should work on it as often as possible. Her voice tends to rise as she gets to more stressed points and it becomes almost unbearable even for me, a Palin supporter.

Palin is poised to set the world on fire if she runs in 2012. And with her most recent speech delivered to the tea party convention, it appears that she is determined to do so. I think that if the Republican party melds together a Mitt Romney knowledge of economics and a Sarah Palin passion from the base, the Republicans will be VERY hard to beat, especially if the economy doesn’t recover substantially.

PS: To all you lefties out there… I WANT THE ECONOMY TO RECOVER. However, if it doesn’t look for a landslide Republican victory in 2010 and later in 2012.


Unionists’ Hypocrisy

February 9, 2010

The unions are up to it again, bashing every non-union workplace they can find. In the most recent issue of the local UAW newsletter they proudly bash a local store chain as well as Marc’s and Walmart. Here’s what ticks me off the most, this local store chain is HIRING and I’m trying to find a job there, among other places. For people like me, who have no jobs and are looking for anything right now, the stinkin’ union is doing more harm than good. But that is typical of the union. Unions have for the longest time been looking out for themselves and themselves alone. To heck with the unemployed, to heck with their own company as long as they can suck the blood out before it dies.

But the hypocrisy part comes in above the plea to not shop at non-union shops. In BIG, BOLD letters is the statement “SUPPORT AMERICAN WORKERS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON”. Now isn’t that the height of hypocrisy? They would have you believe that the union has a monopoly on American workers? What a crock! American workers are by and large NON-UNION. Perhaps the ad should have stated “SUPPORT OUR FAT CAT UNION BOSS AND HIS CRONIES THIS HOLIDAY SEASON”.

Now I don’t mind if they say to support unionized markets or whatever. Really I don’t. It’s their free speech right to do so. Sure I think that unions pretty much foul up everything their hands touch but that’s their prerogative. However, when they basically advocate a boycott against a reputable, respectful business that is HIRING in a bad economy, you can be #@&! sure that I’m ticked off. There are a lot of people that would love to have a job from this small business and couldn’t care less if there was a dang union involved. If people boycott this business, that means less profit for the company and as a result fewer or no hiring. When was the last time the stinkin’ union employed somebody? Or wait, the employment comes from the companies that they screw. That’s why they call them union ‘members’ rather than union ’employees’; because the union doesn’t hire ANYBODY! So if you want to talk to me about supporting American workers, I’ll do it. I’ll shop at that business that’s hiring. In fact I’ll do it just to stick my thumb in the eye of the union boss.

Americans need to realize that the unions are nothing more than a mouthpiece for the liberal/progressive movement. They may have served a purpose years ago, but they’ve long since stopped looking out for the working man. I’d trust the CEO nowadays more than the union boss. Shame on the UAW for bashing a employer that actually treats his workers right, WITHOUT THE UNION THUGS!
