For many years, the political left has shamelessly abused the American people, slandering, beating and bullying them into submission with the false narrative that America is a racist nation. In other words, the left recklessly and unfairly plays the race card.
The reason is simple: The left has great disdain for traditional American values and wants to transform America into a socialist utopia. Calling an opponent “racist” is a common tactic used to frighten away criticism.
Somewhere in America’s recovery from the sin of slavery, the left hijacked the nation’s well-intentioned Christian desire to achieve racial equality. The left redefined racial equality to mean that minorities are never to be held responsible for their actions, they are entitled to endless government handouts, and opposing a minority on any issue is regarded as racist and hateful.
On behalf of my decent and hard-working fellow Americans, I demand an apology from the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus, the Democratic Party, Hollywood and the mainstream media. All of these self-proclaimed paragons of fairness and compassion are nothing more than liars, peddlers of hate and division. Each is a cheering section and advocacy group, assisting the left in the furtherance of its socialist/progressive agenda.
Here’s how each group has played its part:
Hollywood is notorious for promoting leftist lies to ill-informed voters. In a movie I saw recently, for example, actor Ice Cube said, “Tell the NRA to stop killing black people.” The National Rifle Association does not target or kill black people. The irresponsible producers of this film spread their hateful lie to millions, slandering the NRA, which simply defends America’s Second Amendment right to bear arms. The NRA deserves an apology.
NAACP Chairman Emeritus Julian Bond said the tea party is “admittedly racist.” President Ben Jealous said he saw signs that read, “Lynch Barack Hussein Obama” and “Lynch Eric Holder.” A year or more later, America is still waiting for Jealous to show us the two signs. The tea party deserves an apology.
The Congressional Black Caucus’ leader, Rep. Andre Carson, said the tea party movement would “love” to see black Americans “hanging on a tree.” How outrageously inflammatory and hate-inspiring is that? But most of all, it is a despicable lie. As a black conservative who has attended over 400 tea party rallies on numerous national tours, I have only encountered being loved to death. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver said a tea party protester spit on him. A tea party group offered a $15,000 reward for proof of the spitting. No one has claimed the reward. Congressional Black Caucus members claimed being called the “n-word” 15 times outside of the U.S. capitol by tea party participants. Breitbart offered a $100,000 reward for proof of the incident. The reward has not been claimed. The Congressional Black Caucus owes the tea party an apology.
In the Democratic Party, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter said opposition to Obamacare is motivated by racism against a black president. Democrats have declared that disagreeing or opposing Obama on any issue is racist. Remarkably, Democrats expect us to ignore Obama’s unprecedented usurping of power over the private sector and his routine, unlawful trashing of the Constitution. Constitutional patriots deserve an apology.
In the mainstream media, ABC’s former White House correspondent, Sam Donaldson, said many on the right oppose Obama solely because he is African-American, naming Rush Limbaugh as an example. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said “white supremacy” plays a big role in opposition to Obama. Such allegations from liberal mainstream media hacks are absurd and bogus. Millions of white Americans could hardly wait to pull the lever for America’s first black president; 40 percent now attend tea parties. Blacks are only 12 percent of the U.S. population. So it took a whole lot of white votes to put Obama in the White House – twice. White America deserves an apology.
John Adams said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.” That is who we are as Americans. Ironically, the left uses America’s morality against it by playing the race card, with great success.
My fellow Americans, you are a great people, and you don’t deserve the abuse you have suffered from the left. Don’t hold your breath, but the American left does own you an apology.
