Do you ever notice all the racist crap in the country comes from those oh so tolerant and inclusive “progressives” while they insist conservatives are racist? Ask Mia Love, Herman Cain, Allen West, Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice, or Marco Rubio, just to name a few conservative republicans of-color who have been the targets of racist liberal BS, in the political arena and in the media. And the democrat party just cannot seem to move into the 21st Century.
Two recent articles in liberal publications use antebellum attitudes and imagery in order to ostracize a region of the nation that just does not see issues, politics, and Constitutional rights the way such things are viewed on the cold, blue east and west coasts, even going so far as trying to hijack republican Pres. Abe Lincoln and second guess that his Civil War mission did not go far enough. You have even heard the liberals/left insist, after it is pointed out a republican president freed the slaves and today’s republicans pushed through Civil Rights while democrats tried to stop them, claim today’s republicans are the Old Southerm racist democrats, and today’s democrats are yesterday’s heroic freedom fighters. Yeah, right…
The New Yorker: “Southern Discomfort”
Rush Limbaugh addressed this new political trend on his radio broadcast today, citing Colin Powell, a RINO’s RINO, and other “moderate” republicans as joining liberals in drawing a line in the sand to make conservatives the enemy…
The only remaining serious opposition to what’s happening in the country today resides in the minds and hearts of conservatives. Nowhere else is there any opposition to this. And therefore, it is the conservatives, wherever they are found, who are the objectives. Eliminating them, reducing their numbers, depressing them, dispiriting them, getting them out of office, humiliating, embarrassing them, caricaturing them, character assassination, whatever it takes. The primary focus is to make sure that whenever a conservative speaks, everybody laughs at him. Whenever a conservative speaks, the reaction, “Oh, listen to that extremist.” Whenever a conservative says anything, “Ah, listen to that racist, that sexist, that bigot.” It’s been set up for quite a while, but there is a real full-court press on this now.
That’s what was happening here in Obama’s presser, the debt limit, he was blaming the Republicans, and he means conservatives for this, but he’ll get rid of the Republican Party, too. The one thing the Republican moderates don’t get is who this guy is. The Republican moderates are really, sadly, a clueless bunch. I don’t think they have the slightest idea of what is happening and what’s not just headed their way, but has hit them already. They don’t see it because they, too, are focused on eliminating as much conservative influence in the party as Obama is.
I mean, you’ve got Colin Powell on TV yesterday saying Republicans did not use to be this way. The GOP looks down on blacks, minorities. Look at the Senate. The only black senator is a Republican. The only two Hispanic senators are Republicans, but here’s Colin Powell saying Republicans look down on minorities. And they’re racists, and they’re using code, dog whistle language now. The titular head of the Republican Party. The Republican that everybody in the media says we all should emulate, Colin Powell, that’s what he went on TV to say yesterday. There’s a real concentrated dislike for conservatism and conservatives. The “why” is easy to understand as well. We’re talking about people that are devoted in their lives to the concept of big government, living in it, working in it, controlling it.
Conservatives want to eliminate as much government from people’s daily lives as possible. That makes them the enemy. Makes ’em the political enemy. They’ve got to be nullified. And that is what is happening. That is the way to understand everything. It’s not about policy. It’s not triumphing on policy right now. It’s not finding solutions to problems. It’s not about fair and balanced negotiation or any of that. It’s about eliminating any serious, viable conservative opposition.
Now, I’ve got this story here, and it’s not just in Washington. I have a story here from the New Yorker, by George Packer. “Southern Discomfort: The Political Isolation of the American South,” is the title of this piece. And what this is about is a very approving story from the New Yorker about the attempt here to isolate the South. To make the South an island unto itself, made up of oddballs and kooks and weirdos who have to be ignored, who also have to be defeated.
Well, I guess we are all southerners now…
