Democrats: America’s oldest Hate Group
Dear People Crying Racism:
We’re all friends here, right? All right, maybe we’re not. But, we can still have an open honest conversation, can’t we? Okay, we may not be there yet, but someone has to open up the lines of communication and say what we’re all thinking: Crying racism just doesn’t work like it used to, does it? There was a time when someone like Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton could scream “racism” and people were horrified and swarmed around like ants at a picnic trying to make that awful word go away. Now, you cry racism and it produces eye rolls and smirks. It’s almost as if the person calling someone the bigot is actually the bad guy. Who’d have ever thought we’d get to that point in a country like America?
But that’s just it, isn’t it? Sure, this used to be a racist country. We had slavery, the KKK, segregation, Jim Crow laws…the operative words there being “used to.” Slavery ended in 1865, segregation and Jim Crow laws ended in 1964, and although the KKK is still around, it’s a running joke. In other words, if you’re 48 years old or younger, you’ve always lived in a country where whites are the only race the government can legally discriminate against via affirmative action and racial set asides. That’s not to say that the racial discrimination against whites is remotely comparable to the discrimination that black Americans endured. It most certainly isn’t, but it is racial discrimination against people whose only crime is being born the wrong skin color and that skin color is white, not black.
Of course, that just hammers the truth home. This isn’t the same country as it was in 1865 or even 1964. The party of slavery, the KKK, segregation, and Jim Crow laws now has a black man representing it in the White House. The party that fought slavery, the KKK, segregation, and Jim Crow laws appointed a black justice to the Supreme Court. That party also selected the first black man and first black woman as Secretary of State, had a black head of the Republican National Committee — and had a black man who for a while, was on top in the race to capture the GOP presidential nomination.
That doesn’t mean there’s no longer any racism. There will always be a few racists just like there will always be a few misogynists, misandrists, people who hate Christians, Muslims, and Jews, and diehard partisans who hate people of the opposing political persuasion. If you’re hoping for a world where no one hates anyone else, you might as well hope for a genie to show up and give you three wishes. On the other hand, if you’re hoping for a country where racism is no longer a serious problem, then you’re living in it.
How can that be if there are still racists? Well, percentage wise, there are probably as many anti-Semites out there as there are people who hate black or Hispanic Americans and it doesn’t seem to be slowing Jewish Americans down. Then how can all the criticism of Barack Obama be explained? Ehr, by the fact that he’s the President of the United States? Is there anyone who thinks the never ending, extraordinarily nasty criticism of George W. Bush was based on his race? Of course not. So, why would it shock anyone that diehard, conservative, capitalistic Republicans disagree with a hardcore, left-wing, socialistic Democrat in the strongest of terms? If anyone thought Barack Obama was going to have Republicans singing his praises while he systematically attacked them and pushed policies that they consider to be unconstitutional socialism, then that person must have been kicked in the head by a mule.
Furthermore, to conclude that opposition to illegal immigration is driven by racism requires you to be completely ignorant of the fact that even large waves of LEGAL immigration have often produced backlashes in American history. In fact, from 1920-1965, this country dramatically restricted even legal immigration. When you understand that, it’s not a surprise that most Americans aren’t particularly fond of 10-20 million people who broke the law to come here, who take jobs from American citizens, and who fill up our jails, hospitals, and schools while other people pay the bills. Judging by American history, if there were 10-20 million Irishmen or Italians doing the same thing, there would be just as much resentment, if not more so.
In other words, “racism” has turned into a political hustle. You play a role in killing more than 300 people like Eric Holder with Operation Fast and Furious and the real scandal is supposed to be the motive of people questioning it. If you’re here in this country illegally, using someone else’s Social Security number, claiming that you have 14 kids to get a huge earned income tax credit — anyone who has a problem with that is supposed to be a racist. People who are going that far are essentially engaging in “my race, right or wrong” tribalism that runs counter to everything this country has stood for in the post-Civil War era.
What Obama’s next inauguration will look like:

The Supreme Court’s Obamacare ruling on Thursday cuts right to the very fabric of the relationship between a once-limited government and a once-free citizen, but the eternal struggle between liberty and tyranny endures. It is a beginning, not an end.
As enormously important as the high court’s Obamacare ruling is – and it’s huge – it’s not the final word. The legal and political dust has not yet settled, and it will take some time for the unpredictable ripples to form the powerful waves of history. Yet, history waits for no man, so we begin by asking: What now?
First, we mourn. We mourn that a nation built on the principle of limited government has grown the largest government in the history of humankind. We mourn that our Supreme Court rewrote Obamacare into Obamatax to allow for the individual mandate. We mourn that once again we read the lips of a president who promised he would not raise our taxes but did so anyway. We mourn that Washington no longer rules with the consent of the governed.
But this mourning, as appropriate as it is, must be short-lived. This struggle for our liberty, this struggle to abide by the principles of our founding begins anew. We can no longer trust that Washington will save the great experiment of self-governance that is the United States of America. Just as it has always been, the fate of our republic rests in the hands of the voters.
It’s now down to this: If Barack Obama holds the White House, and if Democrats win control of either house of Congress, then Obamacare will be unstoppable, and America will become the United States of Europe. We will have sacrificed our freedom and our exceptionalism for the false promises of the government-centered society. The 2012 election just became infinitely more important.
As the adage goes, Americans get the leaders we deserve. That our generation even allowed America’s fate to rest in the hands of nine men and women who upheld a law antithetical to the concept of limited government and individual freedom is a testament of our lost way. It’s time we stop hoping for better leaders and start becoming better citizens. It’s time we deserve better leaders.
Obamacare was forced upon us by 219 representatives, 60 senators and one president. Simply put, their time in office must end. As I’ve said before, politically speaking, we must level their cities and salt their fields. The barren wastelands of their once-promising careers will be a stark reminder to future would-be statist politicians who are willing to betray the will of Americans and break the covenant of our Constitution.
Only the voters can save America now.

A weapon’s parts and accessories vendor, Hamlund Tactical recently received a notice from Google, explaining the new ‘shopping experience’ transition, and what changes it requires of the new small business. Certainly not business as usual:
We do not allow the promotion or sale of weapons and any related products such as ammunitions or accessory kits on Google Shopping. In order to comply with our new policies, please remove any weapon-related products from your data feed and then re-submit your feed in the Merchant Center.
What prompted Google’s ‘shopping experience’ transition to now exclude this business’ operations?
Read it all HERE. And do spend some time, maybe a lot of time, on this site! I do for sure.
This is a great monologue on the fact that Obama wants to put illegals back to work before he puts Americans back to work. And the title itself is a reference to the arguments made by people regarding deportation.
This is just disgraceful of our idiot in chief!
The Obama administration on Friday threatened to veto a defense appropriations bill in part because it does not include higher health care fees for members of the military.
“The Administration is disappointed that the Congress did not incorporate the requested TRICARE fee initiatives into either the appropriation or authorization legislation,” the White House wrote in an official policy statement expressing opposition to the bill, which the House approved in May.
President Obama’s most recent budget proposal includes billions of dollars in higher fees for members of TRICARE, the military health care system, and is part of the administration’s plan to cut nearly $500 billion from the Pentagon’s budget.
Just the same dumbass argument that made no sense before and makes less sense now.
Rep. Ed Towns, D-N.Y., followed Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., in suggesting that the vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress is designed to undermine his ability to fight voter ID laws.
“You have to think that there is a connection, because you feel that they’re sidetracking him to stop him from looking into the voter ID [laws],” Towns told The Washington Examiner yesterday afternoon, just before the vote took place. “I have no proof of the fact that there’s a connection but I must admit that I’m suspicious of that.”
Towns’ comments tracked with Pelosi’s argument last week. “They’re going after Eric Holder because he is supporting measures to overturn these voter suppression initiatives in the states,” she told reporters during her press briefing today. “This is no accident, it is no coincidence. It is a plan on the part of Republicans.”
