In this, the finale of Volume Two, I’d really just like to add more perspective to many of the things I’ve witnessed.
I never, ever feel bad for mocking Afrocentrism. First of all, not everybody Black engages in it. Secondly, seventy percent of its apologists live in middle-class and mostly White suburbs. And they support Afrocentrism to keep inner city Blacks “in their place”. If you really want to know what White liberals think of Afrocentric culture, look no further than who they elected as the so-called First President: a biracial man raised everywhere but the “hood”. Even worse, look at the virtually any statistic for Black people since 2009.
A lot of my LGBTetc. activist animus stems from my experiences with Afrocentrism. Credit should always be given where it’s due; their rise to prominence happened pretty fast. But they, like Afrocentric peddlers, tend to exalt the lowest common denominator in their community. That’s why there’s so much “gift-giving” and domestic violence in a very small community. And allowing it to go unchecked can undermine any progress made. And no, people do not have to others solely because of who they sleep with. Hell, you don’t, so why should anybody else?
Presidential Candidate and former Illinois Senator Barack Hussein “The Long-Legged Daddy” Obama is, in my view, one of the greatest campaigners of all time. But as the 44th President of the United States, he’s one of the worst Affirmative Action hires in history. You know how AA works: find the first non-White you can, promote him like hell, set him up as a figurehead… and let everybody else lead from behind. As author Shelby Steele points out, “President Obama is more of a cultural phenomenon than a political one”.
Even when the Republican Party did not have a sitting President, they were often the steady, trusted, fiscally responsible hand in Washington. The terms of both Presidents Bush killed that notion. The re-election of Obama has sent them absolutely into chaos. The days of riding the coattails of Ronald Reagan and the Christian Coalition are no more. The Tea Party, touted as a return to the old school GOP, have proven to be anything but. They’ve been relegated to mostly state and local politics, with their most prominent national figures just kicking back. Why not? They’ll be re-elected out of brand loyalty, anyhow… with the Tea Party in tow.
The Religious Right called Mormonism a polygamist cult for years, then claimed that a Mormon elder, as President, could “bring America back to God”. The same fundamentalist who condemns homosexuality can be found all over GayPatriot comment sections, and letting their near-nude preteen daughters hustle grown men at a church car wash. With no sin left to rail against (the same-sex marriage issue is summarily decided), the religious right is rapidly evaporating as a key force in society.
And since Gay Conservatives seem to be the only ones giving religionists any sympathy, one has to ask: with same-sex marriages federally recognized, is refusing to get one with your lover make you “living in sin” and “shacking up”?
A young guy from Canada recently pointed out something about most American “atheists”. They are actually not atheists, who do not acknowledge an absolute final sovereignty. Because their worship is ultimately either their culture or, more than likely, an all-powerful government that protects them from their ideological enemies and themselves, they are, by definition, Statists. All religions and the main two political parties have embraced it as of late. And much like those who worshiped the Austrian house painter or the Chinese rice farmer, they’ll bring a whole nation down in the abyss.
If you really want to see if things like Multiculturalism, Balkanization, or any form of identity politics has ever worked here’s an idea. Ask your local gay, Black, fundamentalist, Muslim, “atheist” and moderate the best time they’ve lived through in their respective movement. NONE of their answers will match.
President Obama is the best thing to ever happen to talk radio. What else would Rush Limbaugh or Mark Levin do without him and the Democratic Party? The Advocate Magazine spends over sixty-five percent of its web space railing on Republicans or somebody else that hurts their feewings. But in the end their greatest and most prosperous weapon is… their biggest opponent.
The same people who swear by talk radio and MSNBC ridicule Vince McMahon and WWE. The funny part is, Vince is more honest than they are.When Vince McMahon and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin got done beating each other up, they both went out drinking, often to the same bar. But they both knew, and even now openly admit, they needed each other… to draw a happily paying audience. WWE fans know it’s scripted, too, but the whole point is to be entertained. Yeah, they get emotional at times, but eventually the match is over, and you’ve got to go home and get ready for the work week. (Shout out to Vince “Not McMahon” Smetana on that one) . And it’s fine to agree with people like Rush or Rachel Maddow, and buy their merchandise. But every so often, I think like other WWE fans. I can enjoy the spectacle, but recognize it as such… especially when it’s not on.
There has to be a specific reason for “minorities” to leave their birthright, the Democratic Party. Contrary to popular belief, it is NOT, repeat, NOT, because of “self-loathing”. Let me tell you what self-loathing looks like. It’s raising babies in poverty just long enough to send them to jail and/or the grave. It’s “Hoodie Marches” when a White Hispanic kills a Black teenager, but thinking it normal when Blacks kill Blacks. It’s screaming “Racism!” while living in a White neighborhood. It’s letting somebody spread AIDS in your community and not stigmatizing them. And any minority who excuses or profits from these things is definitely self-loathing. These are the reasons minorities leave the Democratic Party. It’s better to trust those who promise nothing than those who let you do yourself in. It’s predatory, it’s blatant, and nothing good has ever come out of it.
The Republican and Libertarian Parties have never encouraged such bloodletting. But the Republicans in particular are taking on some other Democrat characteristics. It’s not like people have a high standard for Democrats. But the Republicans are held to a higher standard, mostly because for years they’ve been able to meet it. Democratic traits are now commonplace in conservative areas. This has alienated loyal voters, who became conservative to escape these behaviors.
Brand Loyalty: John Sidney McCain is/was a longtime Arizona Senator whose often contradictory stances on issues kept him in politics, but nowhere near the White House. The established GOP members liked him. Voters, his opponents in the Republican primaries, and conservative radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin, did not. When he became the 2008 GOP Presidential nominee, conservative media actually urged voters to support him. The Tea Party and conservative media constantly referred to former Massachusetts Governor Willard “Mitt” Romney as “Flip-Flop Romney” throughout the 2012 Election season. When Romney became the 2012 GOP Presidential nominee, it was the conservative media and Tea Party that declared him the “last hope for America”. The Republicans who wouldn’t settle for Romney have a lot more integrity than the two-faced brand loyalists who despised him six months prior. Brand Loyalty works great with Democrats, but seldom with more independent-minded adults, the majority in the GOP.
The Leader Lie: The concept of any politician as the “last hope of America” bothers me. America is a group of individuals, or even individual groups, able to coexist, with elected representatives working together when possible. North Korea is a dictatorship, where one man, through self-appointed officials, dictates his whims on the people. LGBTetc. and “Afrocentric” Black activists are constantly crying out for role models and leaders. When left to themselves, the results are usually those mentioned in the first paragraph. To think that entrepreneurs and successful capitalists would embrace such a philosophy is very troubling.
Statism/Identity Politics: This whole tear I’m on right now came from an interaction with a conservative statist. You know the type: he’s all about “LESS GOVERNMENT!” when it comes to business, but wants to use the government to decide who’s rewarded federal goodies based on their personal lives. Less government can’t just be less in certain parts, and more in others. The “LESS GOVERNMENT!” shout is just like the Democrats’ “EQUALITY!” or Ric Flair’s “WHOOO!”: it’s familiar, stimulating, and, after watching the government’s size explode under both parties consistently for decades, actually pretty pointless. The Democrats have mastered using politics as a platform for “social justice” and “identity politics”. The GOP may claim otherwise, but they’ve just tried it with the DOMA-supporting Romney, and lost big time. The 1990’s welfare reform, devised by House Speaker Newton Leroy Gingrich and signed by President William Jefferson (Bill) Clinton, is an excellent example of how well a conservative plan can work when executed with class and respect.
Hustlers vs. Hypocrites: In Orson Welles’ most famous film, Citizen Kane, the protagonist, Charles Foster Kane, ran for New York Governor. His opponent was the incumbent, Jim W. Gettys. Gettys was a lot like President Barack Hussein “the Long-Legged Mack Daddy” Obama. He was a true hustler: you knew what he was, and he never really hid it. He also knew the virtuous Kane had some shade about him, too. And by the time Election Day arrives, the voters know it as well. As in real life, the hypocrite Charles Foster Kane ultimately lost to the hustler Jim W. Gettys. In modern terms, the hypocrite in GOP circles is not necessarily the candidate, but those promoting him after destroying him for months prior.
Since the biracial Obama is the “first Black President”, there will be no novelty for Republicans to compete with (unless Hillary Rodham Clinton runs). But politics has become less about policy and more about ideology. A candidate’s stances, supporters, and detractors, now shape them. That’s why Ron and his obsessive PaulBots with their Obamaite antics tanked. Independent and discerning voters turned on MSNBC or FOX News. They also looked at the progressive and conservatives websites and the comments left by their respective sycophants. Many saw no major difference between them, and therefore saw no reason to vote for either. With the Tea Party crowd ripping two consecutive Republican candidates, promoting them a short while later, and cursing those who didn’t join in on the about-face, what was the voter to do? They stayed home. It wasn’t voter massive fraud. It wasn’t Satan. It was the fact that intelligent people don’t vote for just anybody; they don’t settle for whatever their party sets out for them. They don’t vote for leaders; they lead themselves. They don’t need the government to validate them.They validate themselves. And they know hustlers and hypocrites when they see them… and reject them both. If your strongest case for a candidate is he’s not his opponent, you don’t have much more to offer.
In closing, I’d like to thank Canadian Rattlesnake for bringing conservative statism up, Minister Derrick “TMOT” Grayson for the “Leadership Lie” video, and you for reading.
