As is being reported of late, polling has discovered as the National Journal puts it “By any standard, white voters’ rejection of Democrats in November’s elections was daunting and even historic.” I’m terribly afraid this will lead to more of the self-serving denigrations from progressives that the Republican Party is an exclusive club of white racists. Just what we need, huh?
Frankly I was shocked and saddened the Tea Parties had been so named by these same self-serving progressives. And now due to the duplicity of Democrats and their holding dear to the progressive agenda, voters and especially white ones, are abandoning Democrats as if they were the plague.
I confess I need to be more imaginative. I honestly did not think more Republicans could lead to claims of racism, but then I underestimate the opposition and the levels to which progressive’s will stoop to win an election. Reader’s do recall the demand from progressives and sundry black advocacy groups for the Tea Parties to “disavow” any racism in their ranks, right? As I have said before, that’s like the question “So, still beating your wife and kids?” How you ask? Simple…the question or accusation in and of itself leads to a conclusion on the part of an observer.
Progressives and black advocacy groups leveling a demand to disavow racism implies that indeed there is racism present. Matters not whether any of it is true or not…the demand alone is sufficient to plant the seed the progressive’s hope will bloom into disaffection with Republicans. See how it works? Clever little Marxists, ain’t they?
So now that the election results can be examined and found that “White Flight” is rampant the seeds have been laid. Remember, as in war, in politics truth is the first victim. Sure it’s true whites are abandoning progressivism, thus Democrats. But it’s not because of anyone’s color. White flight from the Democrat Party is a rejection of identity politics. It is a rejection of Keynesian economic theory which has failed at every effort of implementation.
It is entirely because progressives have seized the reins of power and set the agenda of the Democrat Party. Like it or not, and man do Democrats and progressives hate it, but the truth is American progressivism, as I have empirically proven again and again, is American Marxism. They do so hate the truth.
Don’t blame me or others because the truth is an ugly one. Instead blame Democrats for allowing this to happen. They could have followed the example of conservatism with regard to the Moral Majority of 25 years ago or so. Conservatism wrestled with the very same deal…to allow or not a special interest wing of the party to set the overall agenda. Conservatism in the main rejected the Moral Majority’s desires. That is not to say we out of hand tossed them aside, but it was made clear they do not set the agenda the party must hold dear. But even that has had lasting effects.
Prior to the neo-cons and Reaganism there was little chatter of Republicans being theocrats, but since the Moral Majority’s efforts, failed though they were, it has been a constant club used by Democrats and progressives to bludgeon us with. No matter that there is no truth to their claims. Once the seeds are planted. . . .
It is exceedingly important to remember that it is the left that is engaging in class warfare. It is the left that is made up of identifiable constituencies. It is the left that has cobbled together a coalition of special interest groups. It is the left that forever seeks to label and pigeon hole their constituents into classes and groups based on economics, race, ethnicity and any other easily identifiable amalgam. Environmentalists are mostly lefties. Womens’ rights groups are identifiable lefties. Those who support allowing laws to be ignored for illegal immigration are lefties. Yet when a claim of racism and identity politics is laid, it is ALWAYS a lefty making the claim against conservatism. How?
It is the left that seeks to portray only them and their beliefs as supporting all the various minorities that are the United States. How can one ideology be the answer to every ill? Ever notice that? No matter the issue, according to the left only they can offer equity and redress? That’s BS of the highest order.
When will individuals wake up and realize that no ideology is the magic salve that soothes all abrasions? We are not 1000 disparate groups. We are Americans…diverse, multi-colored, multi-ethnic and each with equal merit, but we are AMERICANS!!!
Smart operatives realize that we are not disparate groups struggling AGAINST each other, but instead are a nation of peoples with one common goal – to be American’s and to know the blessing that circumstance affords us. Beware of any group or ideology that seeks to identify and divide!
White flight from the Democrat Party and their progressive masters is not racism. It is a recognition that we are not sundry groups to be cobbled into a political force, but instead are all Americans. Beware of anyone who seeks political power by pitting one against the other. Recall Nazism seeking to pit Jews against everyone else. Recall Marxism that seeks to pit one class against another.
American’s are not Nazi’s and were are not, in the main, Marxists. But to listen to one ideology’s talking points we are a foul soup of evil persons seeking enrichment on the backs of others. Such concepts are those of anarchists and radicals. In the main, that is not America. But it is how Marxists play the game. So long as Democrat’s allow their platform to be decided by radical progressivism, Democrats will experience more of this. They seek to separate us, not unite us. The evidence it clear and overwhelming!
Don’t fall for their platitudinous words that try to draw distinctions and class differences between us. The factual reality is progressivism is a 100 year old ideology that has sought to promise everyone everything, yet has never delivered on any of its promises. And in failure, as they cannot win support with honesty for what they seek, they seek to destroy their opposition as their only strategy for building coalitions of political support.
That is the antithesis of what this nation is, and what it was Founded to be – the absolute antithesis!
