Race Baiting is Racists and the Race Baitors Need to Repent

The topic of race has been in the news quite a bit lately, and it’s all coming from the Left as they try to use the race card once again to advance their agenda. What is so sad is that the race baiters are getting a pass about being the ultimate racists. The NAACP is the biggest bunch of racists around. They are using race as their means to advance a political agenda and discriminate against those of color who do not follow in lock step with them

This makes them even bigger sinners than those who are simply racist. Not that being a racists is good. It is not. We all must admit that we are racists in order to advance past this sin. But to deny that we are guilty of the sin at all, is even the bigger sin.

1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

This is what the left does on a regular basis and why I find so much of this debate repulsive on every level. The Left would have us believe that since they know what racism is, and can pull out the race card at the drop of a hat, that they are not racists. They are racist of the worst kind because they refuse to ever acknowledge their own sin. As a result, we are seeing that the truth is not in them at all.

The Left, Democrats, and the NAACP who do these things need to be soundly rebuked. To call the Tea Party racists, to call those of us who disagree with Obama’s socialist policies racist, to even suggest that we are racists simply because we believe leftist policies are wrong for the country, is sick.

There is no reason whatsoever to bring racism to the debate of public policy, especially in light of the fact that the left accuses the Tea Party of being such, but has no evidence at all. The one instance of a man being racists at a Tea Party actually showed the Tea Partiers forcing the man to leave because HE WAS a racist. Mark even has a post showing all those blacks attending the Tea Parties, and none of them are run off or met with derogatory names. However the Left has plenty of names for those blacks who attend Tea Parties. Again, who are the ultimate racists? It’s always those on the Left. Their actions make me sick.

The sad reality is that Obama could have had a profound effect on the entire debate. Alas, being on the Left, he has chosen to use the race card as well, as Victor Hansen Davis points out:

His two-decade apprenticeship at Trinity Church under the racist and anti-Semitic Rev. Jeremiah Wright has never been adequately explained. Obama indulged in racial stereotyping himself when he wrote off the white lower-middle class of Pennsylvania as clueless zealots clinging to their guns, religion and xenophobia.

Obama also characterized his grandmother as a “typical white person” when he implied that her supposed fear of young black males symbolizes the prejudices of the entire white community. Michelle Obama did not help things when, in clumsy fashion, she indicted America as “just downright mean”– a nation she had not been proud of in her adult life until it embraced the hope and change represented by her husband’s candidacy.

Such campaign trash talk did not stop during the first 18 months of the Obama presidency. The race-baiting Van Jones — the short-lived presidential advisor on “green jobs” — should never have been appointed. Then, the president himself criticized Cambridge, Mass., police for acting “stupidly” when they arrested his friend, Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates.

Then there was the outburst of Attorney General Eric Holder, who blasted America as “a nation of cowards” for not talking more about race on his terms. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor was almost obsessive in self-referencing herself as a “Latina.” She also suggested that her racial background and experiences made her “wise” in a way white male colleagues could never be.

Obama’s reputation as a racial healer was largely the creation of the media. In fact, Obama had a number of racially polarizing incidents that probably would have disqualified any other presidential candidate of the past 30 years.

I wish we would get off this topic. Yes, I know racism exists… see my above remarks. But as long as the Left keeps using this topic as a tool for the advancement of their pathetic agenda, the real issue of racism will never be addressed and dealt with. That is because the Left doesn’t want that. They know their policies fail in the arena of ideas. So keeping us focused on some false claims actually does advance their agenda, and sets racial reconciliation back years. Who are the real racists?

    I respect your views but unless you can walk one day in these people shoes. For example I have been black all my life and I have had to pray because the racist things that you experience indeed keeps you on your knees. A child learns racist things before the age of five and guess who teach them that parents, teachers, preacher, and etc. You see we have to be careful of what we think of people like the President because no matter his race the bible teaches us to respect his authority. You don’t have to agree with him but if not you sin. I disagree about the NAACP because racist is part of this countries foundation. This country went from field slaves to prison slaves and who was part of putting abortion clinics in african american neighborhoods. if you can please tell me why liquor stores are on every corner count the same in other neighborhoods. You want to talk about racism law school’s admit selective amounts of other races. Racism is everywhere so NAACP is a voice that fights for jobs, and communities that would be left behind otherwise. I say without barriers it would be no control. I smile because the way the next generation is going racist soon will not be a part of the vocabulary because they are doing colorless marriages which produce colorful child bringing into existance no pure race thus racist views no longer can feed cause it has no place to abide.

      Hi “Me”
      I disagree with you and agree with you. I do have a problem with the tactic of saying “since you have not walked in their shoes, you cannot say these things.” That is part of the problem. Those of us who have never experience racism do understand that we have never experienced racism. But that does not mean we have to be silent on the issue.

      I am strongly opposed to racism in any form even come back this way. But to silence us is to never move forward and say that those who have experienced should be the only arbiters on what is fair for bringing about balance.

      The point of my post is that those on the Left are using the race card because the Left and it’s policies are deficient. Every place liberalism and socialism have been tried, they have failed. Look at California, New Jersey, New York, etc. This is what the left does not want, so they call men like me racists because I question Obama’s policies, and politics. I don’t like Obama, but it’s not because he is half white. I don’t like Obama because he is a socialist and he ignores the Constitution of the United States. His policies are going to bankrupt America and spread the misery around.

      The NAACP has done nothing for racial reconciliation in years. This latest attempt to smear the Tea Parties, when there are plenty of blacks and Hispanics involved, is trying to shift the issue. The Tea Parties are successful because they are staying on message: we don’t want Obama’s socialism. Yet, what does the NAACP do, but stir up those in bondage to the left, aka welfare, poor neighborhoods, etc. That is NOT going to change with the NAACP or under Obama. He wants the poor to stay poor and dependent upon the government.

      As for the left, when are they going to admit that they are racist. Remember, it was white Democrats that brought us abortion, which is targeted at blacks. There is some pure racism right there, yet the Dems and Libs fail to notice that.

      Anyway, thanks for stopping by. Next time, identify yourself.
      Blessings
