My column for WorldNetDaily.com this week deals with the subject of racism in America ...yes, a pretty big subject...but it breaks out pretty easily as we have seen demonstrated this week by the Reverend Jesse Jackson.
Jesse Jackson’s racist attacks on the Democrat’s leading man, Barack Obama, is a black-and-white reminder of the racism that runs deep in the roots of the Democratic Party.
The mainstream media and Democrats have done a good job of whitewashing the horrific history of racism that continues today in their party. They want to point to GOP as the Grand Old Polluters of race instead of looking inward, where the poison is roiling.
But Jackson, the foul-mouthed Democrat who uses race as his cash cow, has reminded the country of the Democratic cancer that eats at the United States.
Last week we heard Jackson saying he wanted to castrate Obama for talking down to black folks. Castration was used in the south, generally by Democrats, to punish uppity Negroes, as they called them.
The castration could occur as part of a lynching, or alone. The idea was to take away the privilege of any patriarchy by the black man.
That is indeed what Jackson was attempting to do with Obama. Jackson even made the cutting motion and a sound to go with his idea of castration.
He had thought about this disgusting act of racism and cowardice. The guy needs to see a shrink and anybody who follows him should follow suit.
This week we found out more of Jackson’s racist rant. “Barack . . . he’s talking down to black people . . . He’s telling n…..s how to behave,” Jackson said on tape, captured by FOX cameras.
Somebody needs to wash out Jackson’s mouth with soap. It’s apparent he never learned any manners and his racism is bleeding through. I am not going to say a double standard exists when it comes to the MSM or politicians attacking after a racist rant. We all know that to be true.
You can bet that no Republican would talk about castrating Obama – unless he himself wanted to become a political eunuch. That act is so base and disturbing at every level that I cannot believe that the politicos or observers have not linked the symbolism of castration and Southern racism. I take that back. I can believe it.
The media wants Obama so badly to run this country that they want no distractions. They don’t want to look at the black man behind the curtain because they are afraid of being branded racist. They don’t even want to examine the man – an alleged civil rights leader – who wants to castrate their man.
Here’s another reason for the reticence. Most reporters are liberal and they are Democrats. They give support and money to liberal Democrats instead of Republicans in an overwhelming majority of cases. Obama owns the media.
They don’t want to report the dirty little secret: Their chosen party, the Democratic Party, was founded on racist thought. Thomas Jefferson, who cofounded the Democratic party with Andrew Jackson, said in 1781 that blacks “are inferior to blacks "are inferior to the whites in the endowments of both of body and mind."
The founder of the Republican Party, Abraham Lincoln, lost his life because he pushed for the freedom of blacks and the end of slavery. The Democrats responded in 1865 by founding the KKK to counter the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments.
These Amendments ended slavery and gave blacks the power to vote. During the Democratic convention in 1868, the first grand wizard of the KKK was honored. No Democrats voted for the 14th Amendment to grant citizenship to former slaves and, to this day, the Democrats fail to publicly recognize the Party’s shameful racism, according to the David Barton’s book, “American History in Black and White.”
More examples of Democrats’ racist history: Democrat President Woodrow Wilson introduced segregation into the federal government. A Republican, Warren G. Harding, killed it. Democrat Arkansas Gov. Faubus used the National Guard to keep nine black teenagers from going to school with white sin Little Rock. But Republican President Eisenhower used U.S. troops to help the situation.
Democrats endangered the Civil Rights Act of 1964, with strong opposition from Democrat Al Gore’s father, who joined 20 other Democrats voting against the Act. Only four Republicans voted no. Republican Senate Minority Leader Everett Dirksen pushed the bill through the Senate.
The Democratic president who signed the bill, Lyndon B. Johnson, wasn’t always on board with equal rights. "These Negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they've got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness,” Johnson said in 1957. “ Now we've got to do something about this, we've got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”
Democrats are responsible for the Jim Crow laws of the south that targeted and discriminated against blacks, and they continue to push laws that hurt minorities, such as welfare and other programs that enslave the poor and disenfranchised.
It should be no surprise that Obama followed a racist pastor for 20 years. It is unbelievable that Obama had never heard the bombastic Jeremiah Wright launching on white people. Wright likes to call it the “black church” experience. It is not. It is a racist experience and it must stop for true equality to thrive. Wright was correct that racism is alive.
But what he failed to point out were the devils in the details.
The vilest of racists have historically put a “D” behind their name. Just ask Jesse Jackson.
