The Left’s War on Minorities, the Poor, & Working Americans

To order the Freedom Center’s pamphlet “Government Versus The People,” click here.

The policies of the socialist Left, under the banners of “social justice,” “equality,” and “compassion,” have inflicted catastrophe in many forms—poverty, moral decline, criminality, violence, illness, and death—upon countless millions of people in the U.S. and around the world. The programs and policies that led to these disastrous outcomes were often promoted by “progressives” as expressions of high-minded “liberal” idealism that promised to improve the living conditions not only of people in great need, but also of those in the so-called middle class.

Leftists unfailingly view their own prescriptions for all manner of social ills—e.g., racism, sexism, homophobia, intolerance, greed, alienation—as solutions uniquely rooted in enlightenment and decency. (By contrast, they portray conservative social policy as the outgrowth of selfishness, greed and mean-spiritedness.) But the solutions they have advanced in the form of social and ideological crusades—often prosecuted with messianic zeal—have actually brought immense, needless suffering to the very same “victims” in whose names they have acted.

To explore this theme in great depth, DiscoverTheNetworks has created a new special feature titled “The Left’s War on Minorities, the Poor, & Working Americans.” Specifically, it demonstrates:

• how a host of leftist attitudes and public policies have inflicted incalculable harm on America’s black community;

• how the welfare state in particular has devastated African Americans, miring them in decade upon decade of family breakdown, poverty, and criminal victimization;

• how the housing crisis of 2008, which was a direct result of left-wing government policies that forced lending institutions to abandon the common-sense practices they had traditionally employed, plundered the wealth of nonwhites and wiped out literally decades of economic progress they had made;

• how the public education system, dominated by leftist ideology and unfailingly supportive of the Democratic Party, has consigned generations of blacks and Hispanics to academic failure and, consequently, to lives of poverty and underachievement;

• how left-wing law-enforcement policies in Democrat-controlled black and Hispanic population centers have needlessly sent millions of minorities to early graves;

• the massive costs—in terms of dollars and cents—that the ever-expanding welfare state imposes on all American taxpayers;

• how the radical gay Left’s refusal to accept traditional public-health practices needlessly caused hundreds of thousands of homosexuals to die of AIDS;

• the ill-advised tax-and-spend policies that plunged the state of California into economic ruin; and

• the fiscal irresponsibility that led directly to Illinois’ economic demise.

    What made Snake Oil salesman so reprehensible wasn't simply that they sold something that couldn't possibly help those they duped, but that they knew what the ingredients were because they were the ones who mixed them. The Left has thousands of useful idiots who work tirelessly to bring about utopia by selling political snake oil, but at least most of them believe in their cause. The leaders know what a crock of crap their revolution is, and they know that the only utopia will be for the political capitalists who have monopolized the means to power, ie. Obama, Soros, etc.

        I used to follow several Jonestown "survivors" on FB
        and I read the Jonestown report every Nov. It is amazing how
        most of the survivors have once again chosen to follow a
        charasmatic leader who preaches social justice, the ends justify
        the means and the redistribution of wealth. How could anyone survive
        Jim Jones and then be an ardent follower of Barak Obama?

        It must feel good to know that you can say something like that which makes absolutely no sense.

          What are YOU talking about? If YOU can't make sense out of something…you can't always blame others. Look in the mirror.

      I disagree. I believe they are dazzled by their own (sadly mistaken) brilliance. I think they live in denial and unreality. Hence, their aversion to a discussion of anything that does not agree with them, etc.

    It is sort of funny, this war against minorities, the poor, and working americans is, for the most part, based on their stupidity. I hate to say it, but we are being lead down lives primrose path by some, and I EMPHASIZE SOME, NOT ALL, politicians who think they know what is best for the rest of us. We are just too lazy to figure it out. Again, it is some POLS think we are dumber than a box of rocks, and if we continue to allow them to do what they are doing, then we are. Well enough said, hopefully the administrator will allow this comment.

    Many thanks for the happy discovery of DiscoverTheNetworks! It is undoubtedly one of the best "foods for brain" I have ever tasted. But it seems that my hope to become a balanced gourmet is absolutely unachievable: during the long years of deep interest to the American reality I could never find even a single tasty morsel of the Left-prepared food. All of them were stale, over-peppered or over-sweetened, of repugnant Marxist odor and hardly digestible even for my unpretentious stomach, tempered by the decades of Soviet propaganda.

    The Low or No Information voter is just a pawn for creeps like Obama to exploit. Barry lives like a king on the taxpayers tab and could care less about them. Dumb a– idiots.

    • pierce

      You have, with this comment, hit the nail squarely on the head. I could not have said it any better. Thank You. It is too bad the MAIN STREAM MEDIA COULDN'T PICK UP ON THIS, but then they would not sell ads, and/or Papers.

    It was the "radical gay left" community that correctly analyzed AIDS as a disease that anyone can contract, contra the early assertions of the medical and right-wing establishment.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "It was the "radical gay left" community that correctly analyzed AIDS as a disease that anyone can contract, contra the early assertions of the medical and right-wing establishment."

      LOL!!! Falsetto.

      "This is not a gay disease, but you'd better find a cure or you're all homophobes!"

      Very productive politics. You need to meet with Oliver Stone.

    • Mary Sue

      scum scum scum, go back to where you're from.

      It was the radical gay left that made sure that hundreds of innocent people got infected by protesting the prohibition on actively gay men giving blood.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        "It was the radical gay left that made sure that hundreds of innocent people got infected by protesting the prohibition on actively gay men giving blood."

        Not to mention the fact that politics should not really drive medical decisions, like which victims need saving most. How many people died and suffered from other diseases while funds and other resources were diverted in order to make anal sex that much safer?

        Yes, thank you so much! I feel much better now, just in case my "genes" get morphed (since I was not "born that way) and I turn gay. Now I can have relatively low-risk anal sex. Oh joy.

        Back to the original comment; "It was the "radical gay left" community that correctly analyzed AIDS as a disease that anyone can contract…" This is a lie also in that it is behavior driven, or "anyone" can get it by being exposed to people with bad behavior through transfusions, from infected gays and drug users. Thanks again to the radical left liars for all of the misinformation and "cry me a river" stories to defraud people and institutions from from funding other more important activities.

        "Anyone can get it." Anyone? No. He can't even tell the truth in 2013 about it because of all those lying liars and their lies.

    I remember the AIDS era well. One of the big reasons that it became such a big deal was that a number of big names died of the disease. Rock Hudson was one of them. These days,AIDS isn't the big problem here as it once was.

    • carrie

      Yes,because Americans spent billions on research ,treatments and supplying information to the world.

      Until Hollyweird people started dying from it ,AIDS was marginalized and ignored .
      Just like the 7 highly contagious hemorrhagic fevers are ignored as African and the antibiotic resistant TB and gonorrhea were ignored as Asian and Mexican.

      The antibiotic resistant TB arrived here a few years ago with illegal immigrants and the gonorrhea arrived a few months ago.

        "Until Hollyweird people started dying from it ,AIDS was marginalized and ignored"

        And the Band Played On.

        It makes me cry to this day, but not for the reasons those leftists might think.

    • Mary Sue

      what was that joke I heard back in the day? Rock Hudson's last words reportedly were, "I hate to leave my friends behind" (my friend's behind)

    • jiduns

      The problem with AIDS is that it became a political issue instead of a health issue. The Left caused a lot of gays to die from the disease by politicizing it.

  • objectivefactsmatter

    "…how the housing crisis of 2008, which was a direct result of left-wing government policies that forced lending institutions to abandon the common-sense practices they had traditionally employed, plundered the wealth of nonwhites and wiped out literally decades of economic progress they had made…"

    While blaming racism, Bush and Republicans.

    The bigger problem is that islam is legal in the U.S.

    Koran (chapter and verse given for proof)

    047.004 – Beheadings

    033.052 – Gang Rape of female 'infidels'

    005.033 – Crucifixions

    008.067 – Treason (perjury in a non-muslim court is commanded when defending islam)

    033.061 – Genocide "without mercy"

    005.041 – Racism

    Get rid of those teachings (ban them) and more righteous laws will have a better chance.

    Know this…the koran is legal in the U.S. (so far).

    Beheading people and crucifying them is legal – in the koran – and therfore – in the U.S. (a total contradictory – if ever there was one).

    Shame on our leaders. Shame Shame Shame (shakes head in disgust)

      The Qur'an is a book of hate and intolerance. Islamic apologists in the United States are hiding behind the colors of the First Amendment, when in reality, it and they are more political than theological. No other religion in the world, other than Islam, issues a death-penalty for leaving.

  • Asher

    Islam and the Left are United in Hatred and Deception. The Doctrine of Taqiyya has enabled them to lie to voters, as well as the media championing their agenda, so that we are gradually being taken over by Islam and their doctrine by Stealth Jihad through government policies, the gradual and purposeful destruction of an American Society.

    • carrie

      The left sees "moderate" muslims as meek and submissive ,a desirable quality for their fantasy socialist government and a great tool for them to use to cleanup the decaying morals and rebelliousness of Americans.

      The left sees themselves as an indestructible ,immortal entity too big to fail and capable of controlling any muslim power plays , and terrorism is a tool they can use to control massive amounts of the population .The bonus is libs keep their hands clean while financially supporting helpless muslim refugees brought in to intimidate and terrorize the citizens .

      Just as the hundreds of US radical and hate groups- NOI,NAACP,KKK,ACLU,Weatherman – have never been a real threat to their power,they believe Islam won't be either.

    Would you PLEASE. Stop it with the left killing minorities mantra! Minorities are not idiots. They have a different culture than white America and Jews. They do not believe unheard work. They are content to set on their behinds and collect from the working class. They feel they are owed it. Yes, there are some exceptions, but these are sadly few.

    Name me one highly successful, Hispanic or Black Country, just one that's all I ask.

    These people may be of lower intellect, but they are not stupid like you make them out to be. They fully understand they can get free phones from Obama. Even many whites are now turning to this lifestyle choice. It is a choice they make. They are not mindless automatons.

    Modern day plantation politics, slaves for life, it seems the elite utopians are getting their way. The populations in our cities are liberal democratic voters for life. Are we now a post judeo christian society?
    A nation of sheep breeds a government of wolves.
