American Thinker, by Lloyd Marcus, January 30, 2014
Remember that spiky-haired blonde fitness guru all over TV years ago? Her famous line was "Stop the insanity!" As a commonsense-thinking black conservative, I offer the same clarion call to fellow black Americans: "Stop the insanity!"
Why do you continue sleeping with the enemy, voting for liberal Democrats whose policies imply that you are inferior, stupid, and culturally immoral? When the NAACP and Democrats claim that requiring a photo ID disenfranchises blacks, such implies we are stupid. For the life of me, I do not understand why millions of blacks are not highly insulted by this absurd claim. Do blacks fly? Do blacks drive cars? Do blacks cash checks?
When Democrats and liberals accept over 70% out-of-wedlock births and fatherless households as a cultural norm in the black community, I am offended. And yet, I am called a sellout.
Liberal Democrats' policies and programs have destroyed the black family and continue to devastate the black community. Meanwhile, blacks vote monolithically for Democrats and politically beat up anyone, black or white, who offers commonsense solutions. For crying out loud, stop the insanity!
God forbid that a black person dares to think outside the liberals 'we-be-simpleminded-blacks-in-need-of gov'ment-intervention-to-survive’ box. Blacks becoming successful the old-fashioned way -- by earning it -- does not cut it with Democrats and liberals. Liberal media and Democrats grab such uppity blacks by their afros and politically drag their black derrières kicking and screaming back to the liberal Democrat plantation.
There, such blacks are strung up in the public square with their naked backs exposed, made an example for any other conservative-leaning blacks contemplating their escape. Beaten, battered, and broken black conservatives are flogged within an inch of their political lives with countless articles and operative pundits calling them a stupid n*****, Uncle Tom, and traitor to their race.
A prime example of a black overlord of the Democrat liberal plantation attempting to rein in a black escapee is North Carolina NAACP Chapter President Rev. William Barber. Black race-baiters typically use Black History Month and Martin Luther King Day to trash
for purposes of extortion.
In celebration of MLK Day, Rev. Barber called black conservative and Tea Party American Senator Tim Scott a puppet, saying, "A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy."
Senator Scott is about applying commonsense solutions to issues plaguing our country. Thus, once again, any black who does not view him- or herself as a victim of an eternally racist white America, entitled and in need of lowered standards and expectations, is a dummy, a tool of white Republicans -- a stupid self-loathing n*****. This is not an exaggeration.
I have been called these names and worse by Democrats and liberals for many years every time I suggest that blacks stop having babies out of wedlock, stop dropping out of schools, stopping killing each other, stop blaming whitey, and assume personal responsibility for their lives. To me, this is true black empowerment.
I do not know what it is going to take for black
to see the light -- to understand the betrayal of a majority of the modern
civil rights coalition. If these so-called advocates truly gave a
hoot about blacks, they would celebrate extraordinary black conservative
achievers such as former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Supreme Court
Justice Clarence Thomas, and businessman extraordinaire Herman
Cain. These blacks should be held high for black youths to see what
can be achieved in the greatest land of opportunity on the planet via
education, hard work, and good choices.
And yet, these blacks are despised by the white liberals and black civil rights leaders. Why? In a nutshell, these blacks nuke the Democrats' and liberals' entitlement and big-government narratives.
So while black
America believes that white
conservative Republicans are burning the midnight oil plotting ways
to keep blacks down, Democrats and liberals are the ones keeping blacks
With the liberal mainstream media in the Democrats' back pocket as complicit liberal plantation gatekeepers, I will continue praying for divine intervention while pounding on the plantation masters' door. Let my people go! My fellow black Americans, it truly is time to stop the insanity.
