And let's face it, I won't have to sift much, because the crackers are at full tilt. You'd think that the only crime to occur in the last week was black kids killing white guys if you've been tuning into the news.
But murders happen every day, don't they? Has there been a rash of violence over the past week? How come we didn't hear much about the white guy who walked into an elementary school with an AK-47 and 500 rounds of ammunition. Oh, my mistake, he was white, and this week we're only focusing on crimes where black people kill white people. On average there are 40 murders every day in the US. That means that in the past week there have been about 280 murders. But we aren't looking at 278 of them, we're more concerned with the two which involved a black kid killing a white guy. Because that's all that really matters on the eve of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech.
Sometimes Republicans cleverly hide their racism, like when they use inaccurate tweets from Allen West (a black man) to justify asking the White House why they aren't commenting on a murder involving three black youths, when there were actually only two black youths. The third youth was white.
This noxious diatribe is your idea of honoring the spirit of MLK's work? It's an insult to the man, PJ. You should be ashamed of yourself.
I mean have you heard the speech? It takes but a little empathy and understanding to realize that when he says, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character,"
he's talking about letting go
But here you sit, coveting them. Lefties' dream today is the same as it was then: to latch on to differences, to institutionalize them, to magnify and sanctify perceived slights, to incite animosity. You've made a deity of race
, - race card, race baiting, race hustling, race worshiping. It can never go away because it has become an immortal part of the liberal doctrine.
This message is conveyed to the modern black youth: however your life turns out, it's not your fault - it's their
fault. If you're upset about what someone has that you don't - you should
be. Whatever you do, it's justified. However you treat people, it doesn't matter. Your life would be better, except for them
. Those other people, those white people, are bad. They're
the reason you don't get high test scores: it's their kind of books, their kind of schools, their kind of learning. If you do something bad, you should get away with it. They should pay, not you. If you do something to them, it's not a big deal - that's life. If they do something to you, it's a really bad thing, that's racist.
Via the welfare state, for better or for worse, what we're creating is this permanent underclass largely made up of minority individuals. An underclass with no place to go but down and thus no possible consequences worse than their current circumstance: a life of dependency on the pittance of welfare. Trapped by it, dependent on it, we give them something that takes something away
. Let me know who the next group you want to liberate is please so I can be sure to get far out of their path before your neo-eugenic liberal experiment turns them into monsters.
