Republicans slurred as racists for “crime of being conservative”?

Democrats and liberal journalists“, observes the Washington Examiner’s Timothy P. Carney, comparing Vice President Biden’s recent “chains” comment to other leading Democratic allegations of Republican racism, “into are constantly calling us racists for the crime of being conservative.”

  1. Also murderers for being determined to shove granny over the cliff.

  2. You have to wonder how the Obama campaign is going to label this development as racist, but I’m sure they’ll try. No doubt, they’ll invoke the specter of “self-hatred.”

  3. I know it’s cliche to state it, but most of these charges of racism by Democrats are just projection. Especially in Biden’s case. The guy was a contemporary of Bull Connor–a delegate to the DNC. Connor died in 1973. Biden was perfectly content to share the same party as one of the most notorious racists in American history. Biden was also friends with KKK Exalted Cyclops Robert Byrd, who had been third in line of succession to the presidency until his death in 2010. Heck, Democrats founded the KKK, not once but twice. Face it, with that kind of history, deep down you pretty much have to be a racist to be a Democrat. That has to be a huge amount of guilt and cognitive dissonance, so I can really see why they are so quick to throw around the “racism” charge.

  4. I have come to some very impolite conclusions of late. The ideological heart of the Democrat party is a toxic combo of anti-White multiculturalism, anti-male feminism and anti-wealthcreator redistributionism. It core constituencies are non-Whites, unmarried women, Jews, gays, public sector and union workers. There is nothing there for Whites, males or wealth-producers. Frankly any White males who produce wealth (in any private sector fashion) who also support Democrats are blind or suicidal.

    So the Republican Party –pussyish and unreliable though it be– is the only functional political base that any non-blind or non-suicidal White can expect to get anything from but contempt and dispossession.

    Given the all but certain demographic decline of this country in a non-White majority, I wish the Republicans COULD be pro-White, and therefore by current definition, “racist”.

    I have come to the conclusion –vastly helped by the shenanigans of Obama and Holder and crew– that the Democratic party is my enemy precisely as a White man who earns his own money.

  5. After enduring Obama (and Michelle) and Holder and friends for the last 3+ years, I have come to the sad conclusion that a White conservative who is not at least privately a racist is simply not paying attention to reality.

    The completely un-challengeable piety around race in this country is that while non-Whites may assert themselves in explicitly racial terms and seek power, status and resources solely on that basis, any self-assertion by Whites as Whites –any racial consciousness of Whites that is NOT contritional– is utterly unacceptable. That is, “racist.”

    Under this rubric, due to the catastrophic results of the 1965 Immigration Bill and the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Whites are well on our way to becoming a minority in our own country.

    Given that the Democrats are Statists, driven by anti-White animus (multculturalism), anti-masculine animus (feminism) and anti-wealth producing animus (redistributionism), and their core constituencies are Colored Peoples, unmarried women, Jews, gays and public sector and union workers, it is becoming clearer to me that the only political home for White man who makes his own money (or for his wife) is the Republican Party.

    It is a shabby, unreliable and feckless home, but the truth is, it is a racial home for Whites in an America who are neither blind nor suicidal. Imprisoned by the same liberal lies about race as is the rest of the country, it can’t say that…doesn’t even want to let itself know that…but the Tea Party was massively White for a reason: conservatism is (not should be, but is) natural only to the historic American population: the Whites. None of the other groups understands it, likes it, or feels it could benefit from such a philosophy.

    Like it or not (few exceptions aside) conservatism = Whites and therefore in this insane culture, racist.

  6. Sorry for the repetitions. I was under the impression that the comments program had eaten them up.

  7. EssEm, it is not the white people that the left hate, it is the individual. Yes, the left’s primary constituencies are basically every group of people other than White, straight, Christian men, but that is because the left can’t exploit them for political gain. Because of past injustices, women, blacks, Jews, gays, etc. can be exploited, so the left pretends to care about them. Unfortunately, many people belonging to those constituencies buy the left’s bigoted nonsense.

    I am kind of reluctant to say this because I am not American, but I am pretty sure American values do not discriminate based on skin colour. There have been Blacks, Hispanics, and certainly Native Americans in the Untied States for almost as long, if not as long or longer, than there have been White people. The idea that someone’s skin colour would have something to do with what ideology they believe in is absurd.

    I hope you’re happy to know that you’ve sunken to the level of the racist left, or I hope I misunderstood your comments, because they are appalling if sincere. Just for the record.

  8. Rattlesnake –

    Good on you to take the time to address EssEm.

    You are precisely correct in assessing the utility of such ‘victim’ groups to the Left : Formation of winning electoral majorities and to directing their progressive narrative.

    Unless in fact a troll, I’m afraid that EssEm has indeed chosen a low road.

    Pax, M, B,

  9. Why is there is ONLY ONE racial or gender group that is absolutely forbidden to be conscious of itself as such unless it is repenting?

    As its numbers plummet in the face of massive immigration, from 90% in 1950 to 65% in 2010 to less than 50% in 2040…becoming a minority in its own country…why is this group, and this group only, forbidden to see itself and to act like every other group?

    Run that question through your pious blenders.

  10. Why is there is ONLY ONE racial or gender group that is absolutely forbidden to be conscious of itself as such unless it is repenting?

    If you want to participate in the unnecessary division of society as decreed by the left, go for it. I’m not saying you shouldn’t be allowed to “be conscious of” white people as a race, you should just know that that sort of thinking is one of the things that makes the left so despicable.

  11. Marx wasn’t wrong about everything. Applied to “civil rights” and “multiculturalism”,,,”Marx used the concept of mystification to mean a plausible misrepresentation of what is going on (process) or what is being done (praxis) in the service of the interests of one socioeconomic class (the exploiters) over or against another class (the exploited). By representing forms of exploitation as forms of benevolence, the exploiters bemuse the exploited into feeling at one with their exploiters, or into feeling gratitude for what (unrealized by them) in their exploitation, and, not least, into feeling bad or mad even to think of rebellion.” Fill in the blanks.
