Liberals and liberalism have never been concerned about solving problems that seem intractable in inner city America, i.e., the Black community.
Their intent all along has been to be the Black community’s “drug dealer” of choice. They want to feed them enough drugs, i.e. government programs, to keep them dependent on their “pusher man”—the government; so, when they need their next fix, they have become loyal to the same government dealer.
In this analogy, the dealer is liberal elites, both Black and white.
Liberalism, like drug addiction, never seeks a solution; but rather seeks dependency. As with all dependency, liberals create a cottage industry whose very existence is contingent upon the continued dependency of a population.
Just think of how many people would become unemployed IF America were to ever solve the problems impacting Blacks in our inner cities.
Al Sharpton would have to get a job; the NAACP would no longer have a group of people to sell out; the Congressional Black Caucus would no longer have racism to blame for every problem in the Black community.
A free-thinking Black is the most dangerous person to liberals and the Democrat Party.
In the immortal words of one of my homies from St. Louis, Michael McDonald of the famed Doobie Brothers, “What a fool believes he sees, no wise man has the power to reason away; because what seems to be is always better than nothing at all.”
So, when liberals run out of substantive arguments, they always play the race card. This tactic scares the hell out of the average white person; but boy, they have never run into a person quite like President Donald J. Trump.
Last week I was invited to speak at We Build the Wall during their three-day conference in El Paso, TX. (https://webuildthewall.news/national-security-border-experts-to-convene-symposium-at-the-wall-on-us-mexico-border/). This is a private sector initiative to build the wall on our southern border.
Right before my speech, my phone was blowing up from media asking me to comment on Trump’s tweeter fight with radical liberal Congressman Elijah Cummins from Baltimore. Here is what president Trump said: "Rep. Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA.
"As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the border is clean, efficient and well run, just very crowded. Cumming (sic) district is a disgusting, rat-and rodent-infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place.”
"Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings' district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States? No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!"
I agree with everything the president said. How anyone with half a brain could construe the president’s tweet as racist is beyond me. As I am fond of saying, weak people take strong positions on weak issues.
Baltimore is one of the worst run cities in America when it comes to Black folk. Don’t believe me? Read my column from three years ago.
You want to talk about racist? How about the radical liberal media like CNN and MSNBC? They actually conflated Trump’s use of the words “rodent-infested mess” as a racial slur against Blacks.
No, I am not kidding you. A slur would be using the “n” word or calling Blacks lazy; but I have NEVER seen the words rodent and infested used to describe Blacks in any manner.
Oh, and since we are talking about bizarre. Let’s talk about radical leftist quasi journalist, Victor Blackwell from CNN. He is exhibit A in the continued “feminization” of the Black male. How in the hell can an almost forty-year-old man start crying like a baby because someone said something he considered “mean” about his hometown?
Really? Is this what Black males have been reduced to? No family member died, no one was murdered; words were simply tweeted that he disagreed with.
Furthermore, he is in violation of several tenants of the Society of Professional Journalist (www.spj.org). They are the Bible of how journalist should conduct themselves.
One of those tenants is that journalists should not become part of a story. If he couldn’t report on the Trump controversy objectively, then he should have had someone else do the story.
Isn’t it amazing that Blackwell and other liberals, especially Black, have never shed one tear over all the killings in Chicago or the Blacks who have been killed by illegals?
In New York City, there are more Black babies aborted every year than are born. Mr. Blackwell, can you allow your feminine side to shed half a tear for them?
Again, liberalism isn’t about solutions; but rather keeping Blacks dependent on them; to deliver to them the drug of government dependency.
I was once told that the sign of a great teacher is one who makes himself increasingly unnecessary.
