Who Will Save America from the Democrats’ Race Obsession?

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

If something even close to the recent poll numbers holds, African Americans will be in part responsible for a Trump victory in November, but arguably more importantly, they will have the capacity to change the angry zeitgeist dominating today’s USA. They, our black population, could put Black Lives Matter (upper case) back into lower case where it belongs, right along with all lives matter. This would honor most of all Dr. King whose desire for all of us to be judged by our character, not by the color of our skin, is currently being stomped on by the left.

Republicans fight back against left's shameful 'racist' smear

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

Republicans are starting to do a better job of reaching out to minorities. It is their party — from Abraham Lincoln, to Calvin Coolidge (who spoke out for civil rights during a time when the KKK was ascendant), to Dwight Eisenhower (who sent troops to desegregate Southern schools), to providing the critical votes that passed civil rights legislation in the 1960s over the objections of Southern Democrats — that offers minorities an opportunity to become independent of government and build a better future for themselves and their families.

The Progressive Racism of the Ivy League

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

The taproot of progressive racism is LBJ's Executive Order 11246. This altered the meaning of "affirmative action" from guaranteeing the equality of opportunity to bringing about an equality of "results." President Trump should convene with Ward Connerly and ask him to redefine "affirmative action" to mean exactly what its original author, JFK, intended it to mean. As for Yale and other Ivy League universities, it is an indictment of conservatives who have held executive power often in the past 50 years that they have not chopped federal funding for these bastions of progressive racism.

David Franke: Socrates, Galileo, and Today’s Covid-19 Authorities

At every turn, we are admonished to accept the dictates of the Authorities regarding the Covid-19 epidemic. It can be intimidating to fight back when their official wisdom consumes every pixel of the Washington Post and the New York Times, of CNN and MSNBC and all the rest.  All the more important, then, to put our current Authorities into historical context.  We need to remind ourselves how the Authorities and Wise Men of any era can easily become the fools and villains of history.

Who Is to Blame for the Death of Breonna Taylor?

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

None of the facts of the Breonna Taylor case can be altered by protest marches or by Instagram memes. And the facts of the case, which may argue for changes in police training and procedures, offer no evidence of “systemic racism” as the explanation for Taylor’s death. Angry mobs blocking traffic or toppling statues are not doing anything to bring about “Justice for Breonna.” Her death was the result of a “key miscalculation” by police, CNN concluded after it assigned a team of investigative reporters to the Breonna Taylor story. Racism had nothing to do with it, so why are the BLM mobs still protesting?

Democrats Must Cancel Democrat Klansman Sen. Robert Byrd Of West Virginia

Senator Robert C. Byrd was not just a racist, but a leader among racists. He was an active member and officer of the Ku Klux Klan, one of the most viciously violent and terroristic hate-groups America has known. And his racism continued long after he left the formal organization of the Ku Klux Klan. Bethany College has already said it will remove the name of Robert C. Byrd, from the health center on its campus. If Democrats are not complete hypocrites on race, they will join us in demanding the federal government and the state government of West Virginia follow suit.

David Franke: The Second Wave of the Fear Campaign

We have been inundated, 24/7, with TV, print, and online warnings that the United States is entering a disastrous “second wave” of the Covid-19 pandemic. What we’re really witnessing, however, is a second wave of the relentless fear campaign to keep the American people obedient to their state and local dictators, and to keep the economy prostate so the Democrats can win the trifecta—the White House, Senate, and House—in November.

‘Healthy’ Is Now Racist

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

Opinion columns in the New York Times will not solve “health inequities,” any more than rants about “whiteness” on Ms. Ali’s Instagram account will improve the health of her 20,000-plus followers. This is what I mean by describing critical theory as analogous to a carpenter’s hammer. When the only tool you’ve got is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. When the only tool you’ve got is critical theory, every problem looks like systemic oppression. Social justice ideologues are very good at finding problems by defining everything as racist, sexist, homophobic, etc., but when it comes to solutions, they offer nothing useful.

The New 'Systemic Racism' That Is Coming

Patrick J. Buchanan, Creators

An amendment would allow California to start discriminating again — in favor of African Americans and Hispanics and against Asians and white men — to alter the present racial balance in state university admissions and the awarding of state contracts. If this passes, more Hispanics and Blacks with lower test scores will be admitted to elite state schools based on race, and fewer Asians and whites. Practices that were regarded as race discrimination and supposedly outlawed in the Civil Rights Act of 1964 will henceforth be seen as commendable and mandatory. The BLM revolution, encapsulated: "It's our turn now!"

The Unbearable Whiteness of Being ... Joe Biden

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Why should anyone expect you to fix a mess that you have either ignored or proved yourself incapable of fixing during the 47 years you have lorded over every branch of the federal government? Sheer, unadulterated White Privilege. Turns out that in the 47 years that Mr. Biden has presided in Washington, he was just clearing his throat. Just warming up. Is there any more grating and obnoxious display of patriarchal White Privilege than the constant clearing of one’s throat? It is what powerful, old white men do when they have nothing to say — they have no answers — but they sure don’t want anyone else to speak up.

Conservative Leaders: History Matters, Protect America’s Monuments

Over 100 leaders of the conservative movement have joined together to issue a “memo to the movement” applauding President Trump’s “Executive Order on Protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues and Combating Recent Criminal Violence” and decrying the vandalism and assaults on revered American monuments, including the Lincoln Memorial and the World War II Memorial.

David Franke: The Cultural Revolution Comes to America

The riots and demonstrations are about revolution, not white racism or justice for law-abiding blacks or real history. As with the Maoist Red Guards in China’s Cultural Revolution, it is about destroying the “four olds” in America–old customs, old culture, old habits, and old ideas. So let’s call this fight what it really is—a Maoist-style revolution—and then let Americans take sides, just as they did in 1776. I know which side I’m on.

Take Teddy Roosevelt Off Mount Rushmore While You Are At It

Like all historical figures, Teddy Roosevelt’s legacy is complex, but if his own descendants won’t defend the first President to invite an African-American to dine as a guest at the White House, far be it from us to take on the woke social justice warrior mob to defend the legacy of the egotist who split the Republican Party and set the stage for the election of Democrat Woodrow Wilson, one of the most virulent racists to ever sully American politics.

Brave Celebrities Fearlessly Stand Up Against Racism

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Yes, it’s truly heartwarming to see all these people and organizations finally finding the courage to be against racism. But now it’s your turn – really, your duty – to make sure that everyone knows that you are against racism too. Frankly, if you are not constantly publicly announcing that you are against racism, the only logical and fair thing to conclude is that you are actively for racism. At least, that seems to be how this all works now. So, in your individual life, make sure that upon interacting with someone you clarify your position by stating, “I really hate racism and I am against it.”

Joe Biden's disturbing pattern of putting down minorities

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

Joe Biden said in an interview last week: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” Biden has made many demeaning comments about minorities for many years. One definition of pattern is: “a combination of qualities, acts, tendencies … forming a consistent or characteristic arrangement.” Biden’s “record” of putting down minorities is also part of his pattern. In 2007, speaking of Barack Obama, Mr. Biden: “I mean, you got the first mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

Colin Kaepernick’s Stupid Lie About America

Rich Lowry, National Review

The fact is, and counter to the Left’s typical narrative, racism acted more as a brake on American expansion rather than an accelerant. Anti-imperialists didn’t want to incorporate more nonwhite people into the United States. This is a reason that we didn’t acquire more territory after the Mexican-American War, and the land we took control of tended to be lightly populated by native Mexicans. The U.S. engaged in titanic struggles in the 20th century against Imperial Germany, Nazi Germany, and the Soviet Union, none of which were brown or black. The United States opposed European colonialism, and its biggest wars since World War II were fought shoulder to shoulder with Asian people in Korea and Vietnam.

New Journey PAC - Virginia Is In Play

Given that Democrats in Virginia are toast if African American and female voters decide to hold them accountable for their racism and misogyny, New Journey PAC’s strategy aims right at the heart of the lies and hypocrisy that hold the Virginia Democratic coalition together.  To listen to New Journey PAC’s first ad or donate to the PAC, please click this link.

How Is Stopping A Beating Human Heart A Civil Liberty?

The Ohio branch of the American Civil Liberties Union claims Ohio's heartbeat bill is "blatantly unconstitutional" and plans to ensure that the bill is permanently blocked. We disagree and believe Roe v. Wade has led American society into a darkness that can only end in the eugenic and racist nightmare of the Nazi Third Reich and other cultures that have allowed humans to be culled like livestock or killed when they become inconvenient.

Joe Will Regret His Turn Onto the Race-Bait Road

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Biden’s raising of the race issue is going to come back and bite him. Said Joe in Iowa: “Our president has more in common with George Wallace than George Washington.” Yet, that greatest of the Founding Fathers, George Washington, whom Biden invoked as his beau ideal of a leader, was a slave owner and demonstrably more of a white supremacist than Trump. As for Wallace, whom Biden disparages, he was a segregationist, much like Biden’s patron, Sen. Jim Eastland of Mississippi, who called Joe “son,” and Strom Thurmond, whom Biden eulogized and who conducted the longest filibuster in history—against the 1957 Civil Rights Act.

No, White Supremacy Is Not A Crisis

David Marcus, The Federalist

Yes, white supremacy is a problem, it’s a scourge, it is a disgraceful stain on the country. But it isn’t a crisis. Mass shootings might be, but even they are fairly rare. Most Americans don’t walk around in fear of them. And they come in all kinds of demented flavors. The United States is not a white supremacist country, it does not have a white supremacist president, and the vast majority of her citizens are not white supremacists. Ours is not a nation that bends to the arc of history, ours is a nation that bends the arc of history. We are not shuffling towards white supremacy; quite the opposite.
