The Left’s Paternalistic Racism


Pages: 1 2

The last thing progressives of pallor want to deal with, you see, are “people of color” who think for themselves, refuse to be hyphenated Americans and reject left-wing orthodoxy on everything from entitlements to bailouts to Big Labor, immigration, social issues and racial preferences.

All of Garofalo’s and Olbermann’s non-white friends and colleagues (however few that may be) think the same slavishly homogenous thoughts they do about preserving the welfare state, coddling union thugs, opening up the borders and whitewashing the eugenics-grounded abortion racket. There couldn’t possibly be minority conservatives who think otherwise. And if they do, the progressives of pallor comfort themselves, such aberrant creatures must only be able to embrace free-market principles because they were brainwashed, paid off or born stupid.

Thus did Garofalo float her nefarious theory that Cain “is being paid by somebody to be involved and to run for president so that you go, like, ‘I love that, that can’t be racist. He’s a black guy, a black guy asking for Obama being impeached.’ Or ‘it’s a black guy who’s anti-Muslim. It’s a black guy who is a tea party guy.’” What puppet-master could have engineered Cain’s candidacy, according to Garofalo? “The Koch brothers or Grover Norquist or any anything. It could even be Karl Rove.”

Er, never mind that Beltway establishment King Rove has trashed self-made outsider Cain and belittled him as a mere “talk radio guy.”

Garofalo forged ahead with her identity-politics smears: “There may be a touch of Stockholm syndrome in there, because anytime I see a person of color or a female in the Republican Party or the conservative movement or the tea party, I wonder how they could be trying to curry favor with the oppressors.”

I’ve heard more than 20 years of this oppressive windbaggery from do-gooder liberals who treat my unhyphenated American brothers and sisters and me as treacherous puppets for The Man. Their smug refusal to acknowledge free will, individual choice and true diversity of thought confirms that race-obsessed liberals remain the most unrepentant and odious racists of all.

    "…Garofalo ignored a personal invitation from Texas tea party activist Katrina Pearson and other black conservatives to attend one of their rallies and meet reality."

    You are wasting your time. Garofalo and others like her will never change their minds. But think about what she is saying: "I am a famous person, therefore, I'm an expert in foreign affairs." Kinda ridiculous if you think about it even for as little as a microsecond, so stop giving them a venue because it lends credibility to their ignorance and re-enforces the fallacy.

    Michelle, this is hilarious! I LOVE the title “Progressives of Pallor” LOL

    You have outdone yourself. I only am sorry you had to expose us to this Dolt at all.

    The "RACISM" scam of the United States has been and still is the biggest scam ever perpetrated on (white) citizens in the history of the United States by liberals and minorities alike. Consequently, I say we should call it "The Great Racism Scam". The question is, "Will it ever come to an end?" The answer is, "No way". The answer is "No way" because of two things–

    (1) Since Affirmative Action has become an acceptable element of current-day society, racial preference essentially has become an acceptable element of current-day society. Note: Racial preference has become an acceptable element of current-day society because its end result has both a detrimental and harmful effect on the white man. That is, racial preferences in education and racial preferences in employment have really screwed-over the white man for years and years now. Which means, current-day society itself here in the United States is both detrimental and harmful to the white man as racial preference has become a normal and acceptable part of it.

    And now number two–

    (2) Because the United States MUST always be "sensitive-to-the-needs" of its minorities and handle them with tender loving care. Anything less would OFFICIALLY OFFEND the minorities. Understand, when minorities become OFFICIALLY OFFENDED in the United States, such an offense results in the United States OFFICIALLY having a case of RACISM. When there is an OFFICIAL case of RACISM, all the Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons of the world come out of the woodwork and scream RACIST and whatnot. Everybody but everybody knows, when the various RACISM words begin coming out of the mouths of the Jesse Jacksons and the Al Sharptons of the world (and is also being thrown around in the "government-media complex" as well), everybody but everybody in the United States runs for cover. Everybody hides. That's the way life is in the United States these days.

    In the end, it is just another day for "The Great Racism Scam", and, life goes on as usual because "The Great Racism Scam" has become a normal and accepted part of everyday life in the United States.

    We have bankrupcted this country paying reparations for real and imagined crimes we did not commit. Affirmative Action, the practice of promoting and hiring of the less than most qualified, has reduced our once great country to third world status. Because of discrimination against white men, which has resulted in the lack of skilled workers, and the crippling affect of high taxes to pay off the "victims" who demand more and more free money, our manufacturing base has moved to china and we are the biggest debtor nation in the world. Welcome to the Second Reconstruction. Now you know how the south felt after the civil War. The only difference is Southern states only owed billions in bonded debt for projects never built. the Federal government owes trillions. It took the South over 100 years to recover formthe First Reconstruction.
    We have sold our children and grandchildren into slavery for the foreseeable future trying to appease these greedy malcontents who will never be satisfied?

    Pretty amazing that liberals can get away with using the rather antiquated phrase "person [or, people] of color" with impunity while if conservatives use it, they automatically become racists (such as the title of the YouTube video of Pat Buchanan's debate with affirmative action Professor Michael Eric Dyson over then-Attorney General Eric Holder's decree that we are a "nation of cowards." Buchanan dared to refer to African-Americans as "people of color" and the poster of the video branded him a racist for this reason and (as far as I can tell) this reason alone).

    As far as Ms. Garofalo's "Stockholm syndrome" remarks: I wonder if she also considers it to be a Stockholm syndrome when insane Jews in Israel talk about peaceful coexistence with the Palestinians moments after innumerable innocent Jewish civilians are blown to kingdom come by Arab suicide bombers. Probably not, since that view is not sufficiently "progressive". It's truly amazing that liberals consider themselves thinking people.
