Why Liberals and Progressives Lie to Blacks

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 9/23/2019 4:35:45 AM

In a Slate article -- "Democratic Candidates Are Misrepresenting Michael Brown's Death"-- the reliably-liberal William Saletan wrote: Last week, in a Democratic presidential debate, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro read a list of black Americans killed by police violence. (Snip)But let's leave that aside and examine why the candidates are promulgating such a well-proven lie (Saletan does a good job demonstrating its extent), not even correcting it when confronted by the press, in Warren's case most egregiously so. The obvious is that they are fishing for votes. Warren has a putative weakness with African American voters.

Just remember... Leaders, black or otherwise, are usually self-declared. Either nobody else wanted the job, or were too busy with more important things to care. Which was our mistake. NEVER let someone say, "I'm the boss of you..."

Why? There's big money and power in perpetuating racism.

Keeping blacks in the minority is an industry. It provides money and power to the dems and many black 'leaders,' like Sharpton and Jackson. Look how they denigrate blacks who have become successful, especially if they develop conservative views, and how they are against charter schools. It's extremely obvious It is a major problem for our country.

Sorry ... but this all must be lain at the feet of the black population itself. Why? Because they do not rise up and tell these self-anointed "leaders" that they don't need them or want them and they can and will speak up for themselves. These "leaders" constantly lie to them but are still welcomed with open arms. Does any other racial or ethnic group in America have a spokesman? Do you see one person claiming to represent their race? Is there a Native American "spokesman"? Hispanic? No --- yet you see that as part of a cultural heritage for blacks dating back to pre-Civil War times. The real issue is, such spokesman as Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, etc. really hurt more than they help. They'll stay on the scene until the American blacks finally say: "Time for you to sit down and shut up!".

The most egregious lie I have heard a demonrat tell in recent memory was Gropey Joe’s, “They’re gonna put ya’ll back in chains”. Not only was it an absurd lie, but the pandering “ya’ll” to a black audience was insulting. No one from Delaware uses the term “ya’ll”. It was just as bad as Illary’s fake accent in the famous “Ah ain’t no ways tarred” rant.

I hope that more Blacks will realize the truth of this article. There are actually two major lies going on. One is that all Blacks are victims. The second is that the dems are going to do anything significant to "fix" it. Mislead by their leaders and liberals, Blacks have been on the wrong path for decades. They have a lot of housekeeping to do. The breakdown of the Black family, the disdain of education, and the acceptance a violent culture are corrosive beyond belief and it is Blacks who must address these issues. The rest of us can stand ready to help when appropriate but it's an internal cultural issue for Blacks. The BIG problem that liberals face is that when Blacks are truly "woke" their hatred of their ex leaders and dems will be justified and strong.

They lie to the blacks because they can. Poor ones and not so poor ones. The poor ones really don't care what they are being spoon-fed because of their gimmedat mentality. Hence, perpetual daily dependency on the state.

Why Democrats Should Be Worried
Elizabeth Warren Is The Frontrunner
3 replies
Posted by Pluperfect 10/17/2019 5:34:27 AM Post Reply
The first big takeaway from the Democratic primary debate Tuesday night was that Sen. Elizabeth Warren is now being treated like the frontrunner by her opponents. The second big takeaway is that the candidates’ angle of attack on Warren, together with her dismal performance under pressure, should have Democrats very worried that Warren could be their candidate in the general election next year. Warren was taken to task during the debate for evading basic questions about how she would pay for her signature Medicare-for-all health-care plan, and how she would implement her controversial—and constitutionally dubious—wealth tax. For a candidate who brags

There are three questions that our terrible, terrible ruling class raises whenever it opens its collective kale-hole to lecture us: 1) Does the elite think we are really, really stupid, or 2) Is the elite really, really stupid, or 3) Is the elite all of the above? The last week has been eventful, even by Age O’ Trump standards, and the one enduring takeaway is just how bad these people are at gaslighting us with inept lies that demand we disbelieve what’s happening right in front of us. But it should come as no surprise that our alleged betters are no good at gaslighting because they have proven themselves

With apologies to Margaret Atwood and a thousand other dystopian novelists, we do not have to theorize about what an American police state would look like, because we know what it looks like: the airport, that familiar totalitarian environment where Americans are disarmed, stripped of their privacy, divested of their freedom of speech, herded around like livestock, and bullied by bovine agents of “security” in a theatrical process that has an 85 percent failure rate because it isn’t designed as a security-screening protocol at all but as a jobs program for otherwise unemployable morons.

Yesterday I celebrated the one-year anniversary of Elizabeth Warren's triumphant announcement of her genetic heritage. She took a DNA test, and she wanted everybody to know about it. She even made an announcement video to crow (no pun intended) about it. Within hours it turned into a disaster, and she ended up having to go on a humiliating apology tour, groveling to any Native American group who would listen. It was an enormous mistake, and I really enjoyed it. So did the GOP, who also made a note of the anniversary yesterday. Oddly enough, here's what you see when you go to that victorious announcement tweet now:

Judging by the spittle-flecked hatred coming his way, Attorney General Bill Barr scored a bull’s-eye on the intolerant left with his speech at Notre Dame Saturday defending religious liberty. For 50 years, he said, militant secularists have been waging deliberate war on the Judeo-Christian morality that underpins our system of government, with terrible consequences for the health of our society, including family breakdown, alienated males, drug addiction, depression and suicide. He explained that the Founding Fathers set up America as a unique “experiment” in which they trusted the people to govern themselves.

A dead body, found trapped in a Mexican pump station on Sunday, was deemed responsible for a backup that caused nearly 14.5 million gallons of raw sewage to flow from Tijuana into San Diego, according to border water officials. Mexico’s International Boundary Water Commission (CILA) told its U.S. counterparts that a cleanup crew at a pump station found the body in a sewage intake screens, San Diego’s KGTV reported.

Latest Pelosi-Schiff impeachment ‘witch hunt’

The quixotic quest to impeach President Trump is not only anathema to the fundamental principles of due process, but constitutes a full-frontal assault on the procedural protections inherent in the “due process” clause of the Constitution. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her chosen marionette, Rep. Adam Schiff, are operating in the shadows of secrecy. Their authority does not derive from the House of Representatives itself upon a full majority vote. Instead, they have commandeered impeachment power by anointing themselves as the sole determinants. They alone have chosen a “star chamber” approach to removing the president.

I never thought Joe Biden had a serious shot at the Democratic nomination. Even when he was in his prime, he wasn’t up to the task. And that was a long time ago. But it is the Ukraine scandal that is putting Biden’s candidacy to a perhaps-premature end. James Freeman describes the news media’s almost comical efforts to protect Biden: When President Trump turned to the Bidens and Ukraine in a speech, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace cut off the coverage, declaring she had to protect the listeners: “We hate to do this, really, but the president isn’t telling the truth.” When Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) tried to answer

Since the end of the Cold War, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has been fraying. Without the common Soviet threat, NATO has struggled to justify its existence. Frankly, it has outlived its usefulness. Yet, despite what many of his detractors claim, President Donald J. Trump has not broken NATO. That honor falls to Trump’s vainglorious predecessor, Barack Obama, the man who presidential historian Michael Beschloss believed to have been the “smartest guy ever to become president.” Take the present problems with America’s NATO partner, Turkey. Since the 1990s, Islamism has been on the rise in Turkey. Everyone knew it. Whereas during the Cold War, Turkey was governed

If there is one thing that Tuesday night's Democratic debate showed us—as if we didn't know it in the first place—it's just to what degree the media is in the tank for the Democrats. They're not only in the tank—they built it, filled it with water up to the brim, and would turn up the temperature to boil Donald Trump alive if they could. And maybe they can. You knew this from the outset when CNN's lead moderator Anderson Cooper, along with his compatriots, one from the New York Times, opened the festivities with a round of leading impeachment questions, giving each candidate in turn a chance

As it turns out, NBC's investigation of NBC showing there is no evidence of a “culture of sexual harassment” at NBC may not have been so thorough as the network would have you believe. MSNBC president Phil Griffin, for example, grew so comfortable in whatever culture produced disgraced former host Matt Lauer that he once touted photos of NBC star Maria Menounos’ vagina during a meeting with colleagues, according to journalist Ronan Farrow. Farrow reports in his forthcoming book, Catch & Kill: Four colleagues said Griffin was known for making lewd or crass remarks in work emails.

During the October 15, Democrat debate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke made clear that AR-15 owners who refuse to hand over their guns will have them taken away. O’Rourke reiterated his plan to use a government-mandated buyback to confiscate privately-owned AR-15s and AK-47s. In so doing, he claimed that each AR-15 and AK-47 in private hands is a “potential instrument of terror.” CNN’s Anderson Cooper then asked O’Rourke how he plans to get people to hand over their rifles. O’Rourke responded by explaining that he expects complains with the mandatory buybacks. He said, “I expect my fellow Americans to follow the law. The same way we enforce any provision

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts was the big winner Tuesday night in Westerville, Ohio in the most crowded presidential debate ever held. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., also delivered strong performances. Former Vice President Joe Biden and the other eight candidates on stage came out the losers in the three-hour Democratic presidential primary debate. Warren’s strong performance will likely solidify her frontrunner status ahead of Biden and Sanders. She emerged the clear winner of the night by showing she was sharp and prepared as she fended off attacks from candidates who were looking to cut into her polling lead.

A growing number of local legislatures in cities across the country want to put an end to drive-thru windows.

Other places that have enacted similar measures say they are aiming to combat traffic, cut carbon monoxide emissions and litter.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Tuesday she will not stage a vote on the House floor to officially launch an impeachment inquiry into President Trump. The decision came after Democratic leaders, returning to Washington following a two-week recess, had reached out to members of their diverse caucus to gauge the party's support for such a vote. After back-to-back meetings with party leaders and then the full caucus, Pelosi announced that no such vote would take place. Democratic aides emphasized, however, that the process remains fluid and that Pelosi may reverse course and stage such a vote at any point in the future.
