The Red Race Card

Pages: 1 2

The purpose of any ideology is power. To gain power the ideology must impose its notion of a crisis and its view of a solution as the right and natural one. Once the proponents of the ideology are empowered to impose a solution then they gain factional and personal power that allows them to remake the system in ways that will prevent them from being dislodged. Their first goal once in power is to worsen whatever crisis brought them to power without appearing to do so. Their solutions deepen the crisis while appearing to devote every resource to resolving it.

The growing prosperity of working classes in the West weakened the crisis of class warfare that had led the left to trumpet that the only alternative to their political reforms was a bloody civil war between the workers and the owners. That was when the left turned to race as their central crisis. Over time the left has broadened race back to cover the immigration exploitation that they had been engaged in during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. As most of the new immigrants were now non-white, the left rolled their old new crisis into their new old crisis and continued to call the whole thing racism, even when as with Muslims, they were conflating religion with race.

Crisis is king. Crisis justifies a war on poverty and a war on racism which are actually wars on anything that is an obstacle to the absolute power of the ideology that exploits the crisis. That is why we are now forced to show photo IDs in order to buy cough medicine when we come down with the flu, but any talk of showing photo IDs at the voting booth is shouted down as racism. Why is it racism? Because the working definition of racism is anything that interferes with the progressive power structure. Questioning the existence of the crisis is the worst form of racism of them all.

Well over a century after the Civil War and Reconstruction, and half a century after the civil rights movement, do we really need the federal government looking over the shoulder of states to stop them from controlling their own electoral systems? Is it really in the name of equality that the federal government steps in and ban non-partisan elections in the city of Kinston for fear that African-Americans won’t know whom to vote for?

Protecting African-American voting rights has become code for protecting the Election Day turnout for the Democratic Party. Preventing the wrong kind of redistricting is about maintaining the gerrymandered minority districts which are code for safe Democratic Party seats. Racial justice is the tail of the dog and the dog is a Democratic Party hound, and it has nothing to do with the old fashioned kind of racism.

The Democratic Party has switched from suppressing minority voters to giving added weight to minority votes, both in violation of the law. The common denominator in both cases is that it does what serves its own interests and calls it defending the rights of the people. The distance between the Red Shirts and the New Black Panther Party, or the Redeemers and the Diversifiers is shorter than most Democrats would like to admit. The bottom line goal in all case was the power of the party.

Ideology is a vehicle for political power and all the Machiavellian outfits draped around the naked emperor of power do not change that. Western political parties in America, Europe and around the world have traded in the “Labor” ideology that banked on the dissatisfaction of the native working class for a “Diversity”  ideology banking on the dissatisfaction of minorities. Such a transition would not have occurred, no matter how much the changing ideas of the left pushed it, if it did not serve the interests of the political machines driving them.

For decades now when we talk about race, what we are really talking about is the power and privilege of a political movement and its associated party. What we are really doing is reinforcing that power and that privilege.

Reform is natively antagonistic. It requires problems and crises and when those are exhausted, it needs to exploit or manufacture new ones. Class or race, religion and culture, it makes no real difference. What it needs is a source of dysfunction to maintain as its power base. When social problems are resolved then it must create them and transform them into the axis around which the wheel of the society revolves.

The engine of dysfunction grinds on making the society a much worse place until it is willing to destroy the society rather than give up the drive to create more dysfunction in order to justify its power and privilege.

    Really: why did the conservatives and the productive majority become so thin skinned and timid? Why does this sane majority even pay attention to all that progressive name calling?!

    It's OK to hate an eternally unproductive class. In the former USSR nobody ever placated to any unproductive or "downtrodden", nor did such people ever get a rubble from the state.

    Down with downtrodden! It is OK to be a "racist" and a bigot. It is just sane to be a homophobe. It is a must to be islamophobe and rid of islam in America. Xenophobia is also a must: how else would any nation preserve and enforce its national identity? No Spanish in public: English only.

    The Judeo-Christian civilization exceeds anything known in the world. (And it is ours, our national identity). No placating to any other cultures! Be damned the so called "diversity"=perversity. And be damned the US (Red) Army brass which (in their own words) "value the diversity above all".

    It's OK to be "full of hate" to the enemies of our nation and its very way of life. Who cares what those liberasts hiss at you? Just look at them through the barrel of your favorite caliber… While we still is a majority…

    • Danny

      And here's looking at you through the barrel of my favorite caliber. Bring it on.

        Whats that, a BB gun?

          Yup, and aimed right for Alex's nuts.

    There is nothing "Liberal" about totalitarianism. The left, taken to its fullness, eventually results in tyranny. It must. When the "workers" all come to realize they have been duped; that any chance at advancing into a better life; any opportunity to rise above, is taken from them and in the hands of a select few, then they must be held down. Just look at communist regimes. I don't see families strapping 55 gallon drums to an old door and riding the waves to get into Cuba do you? Individual Responsibility coupled to Personal Liberty, operating under a Constitutional Republic with equality under the law is the ONLY way to maintain our American way of life.

      Pretty simple, isn't it? The reason even so many intelligent people just don't seem to get it is that most of them simply don't want to. Plus, a lot of "Liberal" elites think that if they keep brown-nosing Communists and Islamists, it will insure them a place at the table if (or when) America falls into their hands.

    To Alexander: the downtrodden have a platform in the popular tv show "Glee." It is now not only okay to embrace Hispanic/Latino culture, the last episode predicted the imminent supremacy of Spanish language and its culture. That plus amnesty for the illegals. See

    • guest

      Please tell me, what is Hispanic/Latino culture? What distinguishes it from other cultures?

      • clarespark

        As related in Glee, it is characterized by "duende": "According to Christopher Maurer, editor of "In Search of Duende", at least four elements can be isolated in Lorca's vision of duende: irrationality, earthiness, a heightened awareness of death, and a dash of the diabolical. The duende is a demonic earth spirit who helps the artist see the limitations of intelligence, reminding him that "ants could eat him or that a great arsenic lobster could fall suddenly on his head"; who brings the artist face-to-face with death, and who helps him create and communicate memorable, spine-chilling art. The duende is seen, in Lorca's lecture, as an alternative to style, to mere virtuosity…." (Wikipedia definition of "duende"–a word used by Ricky Martin to introduce the cast to the essential of his culture.)

          wow, you truly are an idiot.

    The bottom line is that America has too many people who are looking for a free ride. They are all too eager to call themselves a victim for personal gain. They cannot or in many cases refuse to look at the real culprits for their situation:

    1) The Democratic Party
    2) MSM
    3) Race profiteers (aka Jackson, Sharpton etc)
    4) Themselves

    These people have no self-respect and have zero knowledge of what the American experiment is really all about. They bring nothing of value to the table other than to become pawns of those who thirst for power.

    I think ultimately David is dead on except for one overlooked variable. Yes, the old guard of the Progressives (Ted Kennedy, Harry Reid and even Obama) do in fact use and exploit the lower class for their political gains in an attempt to permanently seize power. But this younger generation of followers such as the Occupy movement et al actually and passionately believe this illogical drivel that comes from the Progressive elite. It's what frustrates the average Conservative so much. In situations we demonstrate simple basic mathematics of 2+2= 4, and then these Progressives find new algorithms in order to make 2+2 = spaghetti and the folowers actually are convinced it's true. For example unemployment is dropping to about 8%. Yet no one mentions that the BLS reports that the Labor Force Participation rate is at it's lowest in the history of the US. So Progressives eagerly cheer.

    The man who allows someone else to tell him what he believes is a slave.

    • guest

      by that definition all people of faith are slaves, since they are told what to believe by someone else.

      • JEM

        When man is no longer willing to listen to what God has revealed (the bible), he seeks to make himself a kind of god. As man departs from the revelation God has given, all kinds of self-righteous utopian schemes emerge only to cause more suffering and tragedy. But in the end God will judge all the nations and bring in the Kingdom of His Son. Then there truly will be peace and justice. “Of the increase of his government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with judgment and with righteousness, form henceforth even for ever. The zeal of Jehovah of hosts will perform this.” Isaiah 9:7 and then:” They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of Jehovah, as the waters cover the sea.” Isaiah 11:9

    Marxism is best understood by considering the statements of its proponents as projection. Therefore, when they say traditional things, even the essentials of humanity, are "for keeping the proletariat downtrodden," they reveal their own mindset.

    They say nation, religion and family are "tools of the bourgeois" and "opiates of the masses," all calculated to keep the proletariat from uprising. In this they reveal their thought that nation, religion and family are the obstacles that stand in their way of rising up to power and keeping those under their power from rising against them.

    All the intellectual-sounding arguments of the Marxists, and I mean all of them, are nothing but moral justifications to aggressive and violent actions. Marxism is a system of robbery and tyranny and is clearly seen as such when seen beneath the smoke and mirrors of its verbose argumentation. Behind the Marxists' slogans and lofty ideals is nothing but marketing, the perfected art of crafting appearances to sell that which no sane person would otherwise buy.

    Marxism is like Nazism—the two at loggerheads because of being rivals, not ideological opposites—only much less honest in its exposition. You could know Nazism would be disastrous just by reading Mein Kampf, while, in order to grasp the threat of Marxism, you need to not only read Marx and Lenin but to understand them (to paraphrase Ronaldus Maximus). To understand their ideas beyond the beautiful-sounding appeals to humanitarian and liberal values—values that the Marxists crush underfoot the first thing after their rise to power.

        A Supreme Court spokeswoman says Justice Stephen Breyer was robbed last week by a machete-wielding intruder at his vacation home in the West Indies.


        A supreme court spokewoman says Justice Stephen Breyer was robbed last week at his vacation home in the West Indies by a machete-wielding intruder. Probably was a negro with dreadlocks robbing the white tourists. This is what is disgusting Ghostwriter. Maybe he will reverse his stand on affirmative action now.

    Essentially this would be the French Revolution of the late 1700s where the "downtrodden" took power. The result was a multi-year bloodbath with the guillotine the preferred method of so called "justice". This is the legacy of the left – mob rule and murder.

    • Maxie

      That was just the beginning. The toll now is 94 million and counting. See "The Black Book of Communism" by Courtois et. al. But Robespierre did get the genocidal ball rolling for the "compassionate" Left.
