History Lesson: Racist Democrats and the Big Lie

In order to escape their truly wretched past (click on the link for my short book on the subject), modern Democrats have adopted as an article of faith the bedtime story that, thanks to Tricky Dick Nixon’s “southern strategy,” the racists who had been the backbone of their party for the better part of a century suddenly switched to the GOP en masse some time around 1968, with the happy result that now all the racists are on the right. Presto — instant virtuousness and a clean slate!

It’s a lie, of course. But don’t take it from me, take it from my National Review colleague Kevin Williamson, who addressed this issue brilliantly last year:

Worse than the myth and the cliché is the outright lie, the utter fabrication with malice aforethought, and my nominee for the worst of them is the popular but indefensible belief that the two major U.S. political parties somehow “switched places” vis-à-vis protecting the rights of black Americans, a development believed to be roughly concurrent with the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the rise of Richard Nixon.

Perhaps even worse, the Democrats have been allowed to rhetorically bury their Bull Connors, their longstanding affiliation with the Ku Klux Klan, and their pitiless opposition to practically every major piece of civil-rights legislation for a century.

I agree, but these idiots think one should be able to live off of minimum wage.
Raising the Minimum Wage Hurts the Poor

Minimum wage workers tend be young and unskilled. Less than half of workers under the age of 25 are currently employed and many rely on low paying opportunities to get their first break. The majority will earn a raise within a year, but they currently lack the experience and skill to compete for higher paying jobs.

Raising the minimum wage makes it harder for these inexperienced workers to find a job, because businesses will either eliminate positions or choose to hire someone with more experience at the higher mandated wage. Minimum wage jobs could also be a pathway to retraining for workers facing a mismatch between their skills and available openings.

A higher minimum wage would limit such opportunities, and that's particularly dangerous during this historically slow recovery.

Rush Limbaugh and the long, sordid history of pitting whites against blacks in America
But before we get to that history, it's worth going over exactly what happened this week to our erstwhile defender of white people, Mr. Limbaugh. Here's the falsehood he peddled to his listeners on Tuesday:
There’s a professor…a liberal professor named Noel Ignatiev, and he is actually teaching—and I am not making this up—he is actually teaching and telling white male students to commit suicide to benefit society.
In mid-stream Limbaugh was informed by one of his staffers that the story of this lecture was actually a hoax. But, if the comment boards on the right-wing websites that also picked up the same tale are any indication, right-wingers had no problem believing it was true. And think about the absurd sense of victimhood a white person would have to feel to (a) believe this actually happened, and (b) be concerned that such a sentiment could have any effect on his or her actual life.
This stuff plays into exactly the kind of white identity politics right-wingers like Limbaugh feed into. The right-wing base's political strategy now consists in large part of stoking white fear that the all-powerful minorities (ha!) and their liberal, white, race-traitor allies are going to somehow oppress white people. The practitioners of white identity politics have become experts at playing the victim.
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/12/01/1258...
Noel Ignatiev, a white Marxist who wants to abolish the white race. The guy is a nut job on the leftist side. He has been teaching against the white race for over a decade that I know of--and yet...this is the first you have heard of the Marxist? Right wrong or indifferent, I am glad Rush brought it up. He also has stated that Israel should be blown up--another leftist liberal dream in the democrat party... but hey Sonic you want to defend the loon--go right ahead.

Here is another quote from Noel Ignatiev: I believe, personally, that on the day that Nordic white men first watched Jewish- made pornography with white women being abused and degraded by blacks, and did nothing, that this marked the death of our society.


*Those sick Hollywood Jews, that make up the democrat party. That's what he is talking about Sonic. And the blacks...OMG...the down fall of society. But he is one of yours. Bravo.

AHAHAHA ... "Trayvon is dead because he wore a hoodie ..."

Trayvon is dead because he was lurking with intent to harm another.

Self-Defense is NOT Murder. End of Case. End of Story.

So, why was a 78 year old Woman assaulted by a gang of young black thugs? Because she was White. And how many Dead from this Knock Out Game? Well, I guess Trayvon played. And Lost!

Racism will end when people like you stop justifying it.

And Racists ( like yourself ) start owning up to their part of/in the problem. Consequences & Accountability.

The two things they don't tell you. If minimum wage goes to $15 an hour should every one else's wage go up the same amount or the person who now makes $15 gets screwed? The push for a higher minimum wage isn't about the people. Raising the minimum wage will hurt poor people and the cost of everything will go up to cover the wage. A net zero gain. The real reason for the push for a higher minimum wage is (TaDa!!) more tax revenue. Higher pay means more withholding.
