Democrat Blames Widespread Racism
Democrat Jim Moran, a Virginia Congressman, publicly blames widespread racism as the cause for Democrat midterm election losses. Moran attributes the losses to voters who "don't want to be governed by an African-American."
No doubt your reaction to this news will vacillate between amusement, anger and outrage. Mine did. Amusement because of the stupidity, anger and outrage because of the insult to the voters.
But be wary; do not dismiss the position of Congressman Moran as the isolated opinion of one idiot Democrat. Jimmy Carter proposed the same theory recently. I am no conspiracy theorist, but I don't believe this moron Moran is the proverbial lone gunmen either.
Moran is a messenger of the Democrat Party. Democrats are busy advancing their long-term strategy of painting anyone who disagrees with Barack Obama as a racist. Get used to it. The Democrats are going to employ this strategy, with both increasing frequency and ferocity as we approach the 2012 Presidential election. Quite simply, the Democrats are going to play the Race Card at every conceivable opportunity.
Their strategy is certainly offensive, as it preys on the basic decency of Americans who are not racists and who will go to great lengths to avoid even the slightest appearance of racism. But dishonest Democrats will continue race baiting because it works.
This strategy is also massively stupid, because it is so easily disproved, provided Americans are aware. And it has become time for all Americans to be aware and to be offended by this political chicanery.
First, lets accept one undeniable and self-proving fact: there is no widespread racism among American voters. It's self proving because they enthusiastically supported and elected Barack Obama. And they knew he was African American. Since neither Obama's race nor the voters' awareness of his race changed since he was elected, Democrat electoral losses cannot be blamed on race. It is an absurd argument.
There has been a massive erosion of voter support for Barack Obama and the Democrat Party. Voter support was destroyed because the Democrat Party arrogantly moved too far to the left. So far left that American voters finally understand Obama is a Socialist, and realized the mistake they made electing him in 2008. Call it voter enlightenment, because we finally understand Obama's liberal agenda.
This voter enlightenment has been massive. Far more massive than Democrats understand or are willing to accept; at least publicly. The Democrats are beginning to understand the level of popular support for the Tea Party. Popular support for the Tea Party is why Democrats and their minions in the mainstream media are attacking Tea Party supporters as racists.
Get used to it, because Democrats and the media are going to keep it up. Disagree with Obama and you'll be branded racist. Align yourself with the Tea Party and you'll be branded racist. It doesn't matter if Congressman Moran does it, if Obama does it, or if Jimmy Carter does it. It's not true.
When you watch the evening news, I doubt you become upset about Obama the African American, but I bet my life you're damned upset about Obama the Socialist. Embrace that feeling, and make sure you maintain it until election day next year and beyond.
Democrats Will Blame Widespread Sexism
This election cycle Democrats blame widespread racism for their losses at the polls. This race baiting is not just to explain away their losses at the polls. More importantly, Democrats are using the race card in the opening salvo for the 2012 election, where they will use race liberally. The race card works, in large part because the media will beat this drum. Because this is effective, we'll see a different version of this political dishonesty in 2016 when Democrats blame widespread sexism as their primary tool to elect Hillary Clinton.
