Accusations of Racism Losing Their Punch

Racism is a touchy subject, it is a term that shouldn’t be used lightly, and a tag that shouldn’t be laid on people without overwhelming evidence.  I lived in the south for a few years, and where I live now isn’t much better.  One thing I have noticed though, is that racists really aren’t ashamed to come out and say it.  When there are acts of true racism, they are quite evident by the words of the perpetrator.  It has now become the tactic of the left, when losing an argument just brand the opposition as racist.  Let’s take three or four signs in a protest of hundreds of thousands, and brand the whole group racist.  Better yet, let’s take things that are marginally offensive, but don’t refer to race at all, and call it racist.  It is the equivalent of children on the playground having an argument that degenerates into “No, you are!, No, you are!”.

Not only is this practice, that is becoming more and more prevalent, reprehensible.  It demeans real claims of racism.  It will lead to society wondering, “was that act really race related, or is it another case of answering hate with hate?”  Like the boy who cried wolf, eventually people will stop listening, and when something bad really happens no one will pay attention.  Don’t get me wrong, there are real racists out there, and yes some of them are conservatives or Republicans, but there are also really liberal racists out there, and racists in the Democratic party.  Racism is still a problem in this country, but not nearly to the extent that people in the media, and some very hateful left wing groups would have you believe.  I could go on and on listing real examples of racism and attaching them to the political movements they are a part of, but that would do nothing to fix the problem.

The Media would have you believe that the 9/12 marchers in Washington were all racist because their issues don’t make any sense, or that their only doing it now because the President is black.  I am here to tell you, as a member of the 9/12 project, the media is lying to you.  We have known for a long time that politicians, Republican and Democrat, have been selling us up the river.  They have been selling out to special interests and lobbyists for a very long time.  Our ire is directed at the entire government, black, white, democrat, republican and independent.  We believe they are all corrupt, either from direct actions or from the complicity of silence.  Many of us have specific views on how things can change, that is because the 9/12 group is bipartisan.  The vast majority of us want less government control, less spending, fair taxes for all, and a return to the principles in the Constitution.  It is not a document that is ‘fundamentally flawed’, or a ‘living document to be interpreted within our own times’.  The Constitution is a framework of very specific, timeless principles.  It has been amended when needed and never lightly.

Many ask why now?  Why not during the last presidency, or the one before that?  I have an answer for those people…

“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

The first colonists dealt with a corrupt government for over 150 years before they stood up.  Many believe that our government’s downward spiral began about 60 years ago, I think we are doing pretty good if it only took us this long.  The founding fathers knew the facts of human nature, and so does our government.  They expected us to just sit idly by and take all of this.  Why do you think they introduce socialist legislation in such small amounts over long periods of time?  Yes, some of these programs have been good, and have helped a lot of people, but how many more can we take before we are no longer a capitalist democracy, but a socialist oligarchy?  The problem with socialist programs is that once instilled into our way of life they are almost impossible to remove.  When people grow up with their hands out, it is hard to tell them no, and impossible to slap their hands away.  Well it’s time for us to close our hands, and to look to ourselves to provide.  A society that becomes dependant on the state can depend on a state that will take advantage of that.
