Democrats Are One Hundred Percent Wrong about Racism

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

There is only one way at this point to end or diminish racism and that is to shut up about it. Otherwise, what you really want, whether you admit it or not, is to perpetuate racism for your own advantage—like Al Sharpton (and many others, obviously, some of whom want desperately to be in the White House). I doubt Cory Booker would approve. 'The Squad" would doubtless go apoplectic. Nevertheless, it's the only way to end racism—stop talking about it. We already have laws against it, for a long time now, as we should. And they should be strictly enforced. But the rest of the blah-blah has got to go. It only makes people hate each other. It creates racism rather than solves it.

What Ted Cruz Got Wrong About Nathan Bedford Forrest Day

Rather than erasing Nathan Bedford Forrest from history, Forrest's 1875 speech to the Independent Order of Pole-Bearers Association, a forerunner of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, could serve as a lesson in racial reconciliation.

Democrat Civil War = Popcorn Time For Conservatives

The burgeoning civil war between the Far-Left House Progressive Caucus and the Nancy Pelosi-led Democrat Old Guard has suddenly gotten hot, nasty and personal with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggesting that Speaker Pelosi is a racist.

American Flag Stands for Freedom, Not Racism

Star Parker, Townhall

Freedom is not about being born into a perfect world. Freedom is about being born into a world where you have the power to fix things. America has a painful history on race. But America is comprised of many individual Americans, and in a free country, everyone cannot be painted with the same brush. The truth and power of those principles of freedom is what made us and makes us great, despite the presence of evil. Let's not make the grave error of thinking that what needs to be eliminated are the principles rather than the evil. Technology and the internet give us unprecedented power to seek truth. America's youth should be using these tools to look for it, to use their own power to think for themselves, not be seduced by the distortions of confused demagogues.

The lynching of the only Democratic hope

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

When one of the dwarfs demanded that Joe apologize for keeping a civil tongue in the company of Jim Eastland, Herman Talmadge and other Southerners in the Senate, his first reaction was to demand an apology for himself, for the imputation of racism because he practiced basic good manners in the workplace. But in Joe’s country courage is held cheap, and quickly fades. He had to be housebroken. He finally apologized for working with Messrs. Eastland and Talmadge, both now dead, and then apologized a day later for his apology not being apologetic enough. Such is grim life in Joe’s country, where the Democratic powers that be are determined to set up a slam dunk for Donald Trump.

Joe Biden Learns You Can Never Be Woke Enough

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Joe fell into a wokeness trap by thinking his theme of normalcy and working together will appeal to the soft dummies in the suburbs who usually vote Republican. It’s all stupid and not even his opponents, who would never even vote for him to be Delaware’s Dogcatcher-in-Chief, believe that Joe Biden is some sort of second coming of Bull Connor. Nor do the SJWs and the cynical candidates who picked up the cudgel of “RACIST!” and beat him about his empty head with it. But none of that matters. Facts are a bourgeois conceit, you see, and they are themselves racist when they get in the way of the progressive narrative. Racism charges don’t have to be true if they can kneecap an opponent.

Joe Biden and the Democrats’ Racist Abortion Position

Paul Kengor, The American Spectator

For those who hoped and prayed that the scourge of black abortion would decline (with all abortions), well, too bad: the Democrats are doing their damnedest to ensure that when it comes to public funding of abortion, no child is left behind. Liberal Democrats tell us they love blacks and the poor. They are just oozing with compassion for them. So much so that they will strive to ensure that you — as a taxpayer, and regardless of your religious or conscience objections — are forced by the state to help ensure that every black or poor woman who wants to terminate her child will not be financially prohibited. Wow, what compassion. Pretty sick, folks. Pretty sick, Joe.

“A Completely Ludicrous Quote” Gets Treated As Real News

We agree with President Trump, there is a huge difference between a mistake of fact and the reporting of social media comments that today’s “journalists” treat as news and report without vetting. Some system of holding those who promulgate, and often profit from fake news needs to be found.

Democrats Have A Three-Part Plan For The Politics Of Impeachment

House Democrats have a well-thought-out plan to regain control of the federal government; part one is to push the message that President Trump is engaged in a coverup. Trump supporters should hit every social media platform, letter to the editor column and other public fora with the question “Cover up of what?” every time a Democrat or Left-leaning media personality surfaces to make the charge.

Trump has made America less racist

Ross Clark, The Spectator

It might be added that the election of Barack Obama also caught liberal opinion unawares. That event, it might be recalled, was supposed to be the breakthrough which led to a kinder, gentler America. Instead it seemed to be followed by a more fractious period in race relations, culminating in race riots in Ferguson, Mo., in 2014. Maybe social science has got it the wrong way round: it was the sight of a mixed race man in the White House who brought out in the inner racist in Americans who are inclined towards those feelings, while the reassuring sight of white man back in the Oval Office has calmed them down.

‘Very Fine People on Both Sides’

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

History cannot be changed according to our wishes, and there is no reason to believe that politicians of the 21st century are morally superior to the politicians of the past, whose faults and failures now seem so easily apparent. Shall we condemn Joe Biden, Bill Clinton or Jimmy Carter as racists for their pro-Confederate past? Or should we instead suspect that Democrats like Biden are now simply seeking political advantage by smearing Trump and other Republicans as racists? Why are Americans still arguing about a war that ended more than 150 years ago? Shouldn’t we have learned the lessons of history and forgiven our grudges by now?

Synagogue Shooters Have Trump Hatred in Common

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The greater danger to our country, however, is not the actions of these demented lone wolves who are, in essence, equal opportunity lunatics. The Poway guy evidently tried to burn down a mosque. The two are psychological second cousins to the homicidal maniac who shot up the Charleston church. What is dangerous to the culture at large is the obvious growth of anti-Semitism in the upper reaches of our society, in the academy, politics, and the media, the people who supposedly should know better, the people who have real influence. And I'm not just talking about the obvious — the new members of Congress already famous for their anti-Semitic statements and tweets.

Joe Biden Decides to Go #NeverTrump

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Biden's real problem is not even the economy, stupid. Or even the fact that's he's a multiple plagiarists, something people like me (writers) find especially abhorrent. (Who likes to be robbed?) It's Ukraine, not to mention China. The man is corrupt to the core and the Democratic Party better hope he doesn't get implicated in what is coming soon — the devastating investigation of the predicate of the Russia investigation. That investigation, which would make an all-time great movie that will, alas, never be coming to a theater near you because of the nature of Hollywood, nevertheless will be the story of stories starting in a month or two. It's just beginning to unfold.

Candace Owens Nukes Nadler’s ‘Hate Crime’ Hearing

David Catron, The American Spectator

Blexit, combined with the #WalkAway movement, has the power to destroy the Democrats. In 2016, it was low black turnout in states like Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin that cost Hillary Clinton the election. So the outrageous behavior of Nadler, Lieu, and their accomplices on the House Judiciary Committee was worse than a crime, to coin a phrase, it was a blunder. When black voters, who never see these parasites until a few days before some crucial election, watch Tuesday’s videos of Candace Owens taking these characters to school, they will begin to wonder what the Democrats have done for them lately.

Everyone Whose Head Is Screwed On Right Should Fight This Kind Of Thing

Rebecca Parker Mankey, aged 46, tried to incite a mob against a man wearing a MAGA hat and run him out of a Starbucks. Mankey later posted to Facebook that she wanted to find out “his name, where he lived, his wife’s name and where his kids went to school,” implying an intent to “dox” him, or publish identifying information about him with malicious intent.

For Virginia Dems, there goes the wheel that comes around

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

You might think that Virginia Democrats would feel ashamed of themselves now for how they campaigned against Ed Gillespie in his race against Mr. Northam two years ago. The killer television commercial that ruined the Gillespie campaign depicted a pick-up truck adorned with a Confederate battle flag and a Gillespie bumper sticker — you could imagine Mr. Gillespie driving if you wanted to — about to mow down a crowd of minority children. The moving finger writes, what goes around comes around, and all that good stuff.

The Left Won’t Stop at Ralph Northam

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

We are at the beginning of a Kulturkampf to purge America of all monuments and tributes to the white males who created, built and ruled the country, and once believed that they, their nation, their faith, and their civilization were superior to all others. And, without apology, they so acted in the world. Those two guys drinking beer in blackface and Klan robes and a hood thought they were being funny, but to the unamused members of a radicalized Democratic Party, there is nothing funny about them. And, after Northam, these intolerant people will demand that the Democratic Party nominate a candidate who will echo their convictions about America's past.

Are Single-Family Homes Racist?

Americans who have grown up experiencing private home ownership as the route to personal prosperity must quickly learn of the threat of "sustainability" mandates warns Tom DeWeese, President of The American Policy Center. The ultimate government game is to reorganize our cities into massive urban areas where single-family neighborhoods are replaced by the Sustainable/Smart Growth model of wall-to-wall apartment buildings.

To Democrats, America is a Sinkhole of Racism

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Monday, after a meeting with Sharpton, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand offered her message of conciliation. Said the successor to Sen. Hillary Clinton, President Trump has "inspired a hate and a darkness in this country that I have never experienced myself. "It is wrong to ask men and women of color to bear these burdens every single day. ... White women like me must bear part of this burden." Does there not come a time when the pandering has to stop? Ronald Reagan preached America as the Pilgrim fathers' "shining city on a hill." For Democrats today, America is the heart of darkness.

On Race Nothing Trump Does Will Ever Satisfy His Enemies

Nothing President Trump does, inlcuding signing a Proclamation honoring Dr. Martin Luther King and laying a wreath at his memorial will ever satisfy his enemies, who used those presidential ceremonies to scurrilously attack him as a racist.
