This is an Insolublog link love letter on recent events. My sidebar readers can look for their links within the content. If I didn't include you, it wasn't personal. (Katey you need permalink capability.) I was looking for recent posts which fit the theme. The theme concerns all of the absurd accusations of racism in the Katrina disaster.
If we had MLK's dream in mind, it would be illegal to ask a persons race on a job application. Gathering racial statistics is never used for its quoted intention, to keep a level playing field. It's used and abused like a blunt force weapon, in race based extortion and promotion. The population race statistics are being used in the same way, by all of the usual Professional Victims.
The only white racists are the ones who shackled poor minorities, in the chains of government entitlement programs.
The only white racists are the ones who told them they don't need to achieve, because the government will take care of them.
The LBJ war on poverty produced projects, not progress; There are genuine statistics to prove that assertion and its failure to produce any self sufficient results, like no reduction of poverty. A self sufficient person becomes a wealth producer in society. They do not become the recipient of another producer's wealth.
Here are the gifts of the LBJ and Robert Byrd style democrat:
- No property ownership.
- No social status.
- No paternal family accountability.
- No choice in education, other than the incompetent government bureaucratic one.
- No useful, merit based training in economic responsibility. (Which is why they go off buying $800 purses with food money)
- No dignity.
- No long term hope of stability.
- No concept of American opportunities. Only a head full of resentment and a stagnant pessimistic heart.
The real white racists just give the poor minorities a meager stipend, a pat on the head, instructions on who to vote for and a smelly bus ride to the polls.
So what type of government do you get, when this vote is given form and function? It wasn't conservative white politicians who dropped the ball here. I would remind our friends from the left that poor african Americans are not minorities in the city of NO, because they are in the majority!
- Was the mayor of NO white?
- Was the governor of LA a member of the conservative blogosphere?
- Are the looters we see in most of the pictures, like Dr. Phat Tony's post, white?
- Was William Jefferson, who diverted National Guard rescue resources, to pick up luggage at his home, a white congressman?
- Are those all white officials and community 'leaders' pushing their faces in the cameras and hurling racial epithets?
Where is the leadership?
Where is the shared accountability and multicultural unity they like to lecture us about?
Who was stepping up to be a source of positive action before, during and after Katrina?
This is the government freely chosen , through the democratic voting process, by the same souls supposedly empowered by liberal social programs. Is this is what the taxpayers want and expect for their entitlement dollar? As soon as the government checks are interrupted, the hand is bitten. The hand is then stitched back up and stuck right back in the jaws of the Pitt Bull's mouth. We are then told that we are duty compelled to feel sorry for the Pitt Bull, since we made him the vicious dog that he is. You know what? We didn't make him that way, the liberals did.
What about Ivan? What about Charlie? What about the Mississippi floods? Those poor, underprivileged Americans picked themselves up and moved on with their lives. They were given no more consideration by the federal government than any other red blooded American hit by a natural disaster.
It looks like the only government official taking verifiable large scale corrective action to fix the NOLA problem is a compassionate conservative white guy named George Bush!
But that's what the liberal argument is about, isn't it? It is about hating Bush, with a hate that blinds them and delights us. I hope they keep kissing the posteriors of Michael Moore and Howard Dean.
Show me any of the Solons, over in that aisle, lifting a real genuine finger, to help these people, instead of churning them through the media hate machine. No, they throw scraps at them for a camera shot, all the way from DC to Hollywood. Bush is the only man pushing for increased home ownership in the rebuilding process.
It is scaring the hell out of the American left. Oh No! Their base might actually walk off their government emotional debt slavery plantation. I would cite Uber's post on the recent ABC segment immediately following Bush's speech, as proof of a new sun rising on the horizon. Thank God the decades of pimping poverty for politics, are ending in this country.
