What’s the matter with these people?

Leadership in the Republican Party seems to be dominated with cowardly wimps who prostrate themselves every time some Loony Lefty screams “racism.” They grovel and beg forgiveness even as they are not guilty—except for being the Party of Lincoln.

In fact, I’m beginning to suspect that racism has faded away in America. Like Nazi the word is now so overused that it has lost all meaning. Anyway there are only an infinitesimal number of so-called racists and neo-Nazis in this country. And they have not been honestly interviewed about their beliefs. Maybe some with that label are actually true American patriots. Who knows?

Leftists have no valid arguments against, or knowledge of, the beliefs of the majority conservative people in America. So they resort to slanderous comments, false accusations, personal smears; even violent acts—techniques used by Marxists and followers of Saul Alinsky. And remember, Nazis were National Socialists.

Incidentally, racism is partly defined as, “The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability….” Isn’t that what we’ve been told about blacks in America for decades: white people can’t represent them because they are different? They even have a “black caucus” in Congress.  And isn’t this the basis for federal and State policies that favor blacks with “affirmative action” in jobs, housing, education, etc.?

Why? Because, presumably, they haven’t the ability to compete with white people. Now doesn’t that confirm the other part of the definition of racism—that “a particular race is superior to others.” Ironically, this leads to the conclusion that most Republicans don’t believe in racial differences, and Democrats do. Who are the real racists?

If racism exists, it’s stacked in favor of the people who try to pin that label on their political opponents. For example, a tiny number of white supremacists in America have become a big target. But they hold no power. And that reminds me: supremacists are not the same as nationalists despite interchangeable use of the words by the media.

A supremacist is one who believes that a certain group should be greatest in power or authority. They could be white or black people—apparently we have both kinds of supremacists in this country, but you would never know it based on press reports.  A nationalist is one devoted to the interests or culture of his nation—a patriot. I consider myself devoted to American culture—black or white, so should we all–if we call ourselves Americans.

In a recent poll two-thirds of Republicans agreed with President Trump’s comments during the Charlottesville, Virginia “Unite the Right” rally. One of his several comments blamed both sides for violence. Who could argue that? Well, there’s a lot more to this story than has been told in the press. (Link below)

Anyway back to my lead paragraph. Two Associated Press stories printed in the Wilmington StarNews illustrate my point.

At a critical time when Republicans should be feverishly helping President Trump Drain the Swamp in the District of Criminality, they are wasting time chasing Democrat race-baiters down their smeary weasel holes.

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel “made the rounds” last Friday at the RNC convention in Nashville. Her priority was a resolution to denounce “white supremacist groups,” according to an AP report by Thomas Beaumont. The vote “was unanimous.”

Every Republican worth an “establishment” badge in the past weeks has rushed to various media venue to denounce white supremacists. But has anyone heard a Democrat openly condemn black supremacists such as Black Lives Matter, the Black Panthers, or the NAACP? Oh, I forgot…only whites can be guilty of racism.

Miss Ronna…wait a minute…Ronna Romney McDaniel? Could she be related to Mitt Romney formerly a contender for President of these once united States? The Romney who lost to Obama because he dared not expose his anti-American, Marxist, Muslim background; the Romney who has been slandering President Trump in public? Maybe she’s some another Romney.

In another AP report by Ken Thomas White House economic advisor Gary Cohn is distressed over “the Charlottesville incident.” He’s been under “enormous pressure” both to resign and to remain in the administration. Apparently, he thought that Trump’s “all sides” comments equated neo-Nazis with “citizens standing up for equality and freedom.”

Mr. Cohn, a Jew, seems to be stricken with paranoia and ignorance. There is evidence that some of those citizens he loves were at Charlottesville (See Link below). They were not, however, there to cause violence, but they had to defend themselves from it, because that rally was manipulated by State Democrat operatives to set up the original organizers for violence caused by Leftist groups and blame for it.

Fortunately, there are a few Republicans with some courage. Back at the RNC, Jeff Hays from Colorado summed it up: “It’s amazing that we have been lured into this argument that we’re not racists… It’s absurd. Why would we feel compelled to do that?

Good question Jeff. I, too, wonder what’s wrong with those people.
