White Privilege

‘Diversifying’ the Military

At a debate in Flint, Michigan prior to a Fox News Channel town hall program, Socialist-Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders had noted that “white people” don’t know “what it’s like to be poor.” The myth of “white privilege” as a racial wedge of the Left will now be used in the 2016 elections and ignored by the GOP.

Apparently, Bernie has never traveled the majority white small towns in and around the Appalachian Mountains in western Virginia, West Virginia, and eastern Kentucky and Tennessee. Obviously, Mr. Sanders has not bothered to tour the Ozark Mountains in southern Missouri and northern Arkansas.

He should make an effort. There are plenty of “white poor” in those geographic areas, and the vast majority of what we call “poor” people in this country are white.

As all dedicated socialists, Bernie believes young black men are victims of an unjust society, oppressive since it was created. He believes black Americans are held back and held down by “white privilege” fostered by a corrupt political system and an economic system that creates inequality.

If only progressives would stop the group warfare, the identity politics, and pay attention to individual liberty. Looking at people as individuals is nearly impossible for a progressive, particularly a life-long Marxist like Bernie. If he did so, Bernie would have to find another way to control “the people,” white or any other color. And so would our imperial president.

We have seen the ridiculous, warped “white privilege” curriculums in many of our enlightened institutions of higher education and, sadly, it now creeps into our lower grades to corrupt younger children.

But that’s not the complete scheme of the twisted Obama Regime agenda, to “get them while they’re young.” When you cannot take advantage of inexperience and ignorance, use force to gain adherents.

The Obama Regime has instituted “diversity training” for our armed forces, but it has nothing to do with diversity and everything to do with instilling racial division.

Last April, a “white privilege warning” appeared in a slide show presentation given to personnel who were attending a U.S. Army Diversity Briefing:

“Privilege exists when one group has something of value that is denied to another simply because of the group they belong to, rather than because of anything they’ve done or failed to do.”

It explained further,

“Our society attaches privilege to being white and male and heterosexual regardless of your social class.”

Judicial Watch, the organization that uncovered this diabolical abuse of military training, also exposed documents in military training materials that labeled conservative organizations in the U.S. as “hate groups” and described them as “politically charged in a hateful fashion.”

That list includes evangelical Christians, members of the NRA, Tea Party movement members, supporters of traditional marriage, pro-life groups, etc. Generally, anyone who’s conservative.

And, since there are lots of patriotic conservatives who proudly serve in the armed forces of this nation, how can the branches of our military complete the transformation to a gentler, milder, more compassionate “force for good”? And how can they possibly understand “white privilege”?

Their attitudes must be changed; to accept things formerly unacceptable, to embrace practices and priorities that have no place in an effective military unit.

The social experimentation laboratory formerly known as the Armed Forces of the United States of America once existed to defeat any enemy, protect the nation and defend the Constitution. It killed enemies and destroyed things; that’s what it’s for.

It shouldn’t be used to make social engineering a profitable career for progressive bureaucrats or to pretend “white privilege” can be found in the U.S. Navy SEALs.

Reinventing Reality

Leftist rewriting of U.S. History, uncontested

When the state-run media jumped on Donald Trump for a failure to “disavow” David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) on a Sunday talk show a week ago, Hillary Clinton launched on Mr. Trump with blow after blow of disparaging remarks, even though Mr. Trump had done his “disavow” duty repeatedly just a few days before.

If there’s an opportunity to shout the word “bigot” or “racist,” Leftists are plentiful and will jump at the chance, as some of us found while scouring the press after the accusations against Mr. Trump.

I discovered, however, there was little pushback from establishment Republicans, despite the target of Hillary Clinton and her sordid past, particularly her comments at the death of Senator Robert C. Byrd (DWV) a few years ago:

“Today our country has lost a true American original, my friend and mentor, Robert C. Byrd.” She went on to laud the fallen Democrat senator’s “surpassing eloquence and nobility” and appreciated “his devotion and friendship” to her and her husband, Bill Clinton (whose mentors in Arkansas were also racists).

Mrs. Clinton described Senator Byrd as “the heart and soul” of the U.S. Senate and praised his “fierce defense of the Constitution.” She said he “left an indelible imprint on our nation.” And indeed he did.

At 24 years of age, Robert Byrd had joined the Ku Klux Klan because he felt he may have to fight alongside black Americans in World War II or, as he described them in a letter expressing his fear and displeasure at the time, “race mongrels.”

In the 1930s, as Grand Kleagle of the KKK, Byrd was responsible for recruiting and retaining young racists. In that office, he no doubt educated his racist recruits in the fine art of Klan vocabulary used to describe a large segment of the human race.

Robert Byrd is enshrined, along with another Hillary mentor, eugenicist and founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, as a Democrat icon, worthy of respect and admiration. Mrs. Clinton looked up to Byrd as an honorable man and likely
still does. And because he was of the Left, his legacy is unapproachable. His life of racism is unquestioned, since its very existence is part of the history of the Left.

Racism in this country has its roots among Democrats, since long before the War Between the States, and present day Socialist-Democrats use it at every turn, to vilify and destroy their political opponents, accusing them of what the Left really does. The Left simply reinvents reality.

A perfect example is the complete inversion of the long-term associations of the Klan. Present day progressives have tied the actions of the supremacist Klan to political entities on the Right, when core beliefs and practices of the Klan are solidly on the Left. Their ties to fascist groups is one example. Another is simply their history. As author and columnist Jeffrey Lord has described it, the KKK was for decades “the shock troop arm of the Democrat Party.” Used as it is today, the modern Republican establishment should think it still is; but observing their actions, they don’t connect the dots.

Every time the charge of “racist” is thrown at them, election cycle or not, at town hall gatherings or in Congress, instead of opening the pages of history and exposing the threads of racism throughout the party of the Left, the GOP cowers in fear, even though the allegations of racism are completely false.

For some reason, the party of Lincoln cannot defend itself from the former proponents of slavery, even though Jim Crow laws were the invention of Democrats.

It’s amazing how history can be rewritten and reality reinvented, its known facts ignored, with little objection or outrage from the supposed “opposition” party.

Why should the Republican Party give the Socialist-Democrat Party a pass? Why allow the abuse of history, misleading people with a reinvention of “racism” reality?
