Why are liberals afraid of black conservatives?

WASHINGTON, April 14, 2013 — Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman are heros. Their strength and conviction to free blacks from slavery are a testament to what happens when individuals think more of their community than themselves and are willing to risk everything for a cause greater than themselves.

In comparison, modern black “leaders” like Jesse Jackson Jr. and Al Sharpton are tiny and self-serving. They don’t serve black Americans or champion freedom and liberty for all. They champion liberal politics and ideology, and that’s odd; liberals want to see blacks tucked neatly into the roles of their design.

Liberals can’t abide a black person who leaves the black plantation of poverty and handouts to stand on his own two feet; they treat with contempt a black man who turns his back on their free money to work hard to make a good life for himself and his family. How dare these dissidents show the black community what they can do with their lives if they walk away from poverty and work to better themselves?

Too many liberals think they have the black race all sewed up, and it just paralyzes them to hear of black conservatives.

What they hate is that there are thousands of conservative blacks continuing to talk, continuing to make noise, continuing to be rebels against the liberal plantation that is the Democratic Party.

Progressive liberals think of themselves as magicians: They can reach into a deck of cards, and pull out the race card every time, almost without consequences

Be advised, there are lot of black conservatives. The “main street media” have done all they can to not give them a voice or to let them be heard. They try as hard as they can not to mention the existence of black conservatives at all, unless it is to take the opportunity to denigrate them.

I know this from personal experience.

Liberals seem to want all people of color to march in lock step like good, obedient and happy little workers so they can claim us as their field of supporters. We see nothing but inaction after the promises turn out to be empty. They groom us to vote for them, then turn their backs on us and expect us to sit there and wait for them to show us that love again. And like an abused spouse, we sit and take it, defend them, tell everyone that they really love us and protect us from the nasty conservatives.

Let’s be honest for a change. Black liberal voters do not have a clue that it is the Democrats who keep them in “social welfare hell”; their promises are delievered not with opportunity, but with a social welfare check

Just think, black Americans were emancipated by President Lincoln. Our ancestors fought for dignity and independence, the chance to plot their own economic course. They fought for the right to read and get educations, they bled and died for the right to improve themselves, to be writers, physicians, scientists and business owners.

They wanted their kids to go to school, to live lives better than their parents had. Some of white America supported them, some fought to keep them second-class, dependent and ignorant. Our ancestors made progress, and every generation did better than the last.

And then came the 1960s. Many of us locked ourselves back into dependency under LBJ. He bought our birthright with a mess of pottage and a welfare check. In his book “Inside the White House,” Ronald Kessler, a former reporter for the Wall Street Journal who then spent 15 years with the Washington Post as an investigative reporter and staff writer, attributes these quotes to LBJ:

“I’ll have those ‘Ni **ers’ voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”

“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”

The first comment was made while Johnson was in the White House, the second in 1957, when he was in the U.S. Senate. Both comments were made in an era before every utterance of every politician was caught on a cell phone and tweeted to the masses. Both quotes have been widely circulated, and neither has ever been discredited.

Neither are they unique. Robert Kennedy famously remarked,“I did not lie awake at night worrying about the problems of Negroes.” As the Attorney General, he authorized wiretapping the phones of Martin Luther King, Jr., and bugging his hotel rooms. Planned Parenthood founder and feminist icon Margaret Sanger spoke often before gatherings of the Ku Klux Klan, who were persuaded that her ideas on birth control had a strong eugenic element.

Did the Democrats suddenly decide to pursue the “Great Society” and other programs of the 60s and 70s out of a sudden change of heart and desire to lift up black America?

This all leads us to ask whether liberal, Democratic black leaders — men and women like Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee, Al Sharpton, both Jesse Jacksons, Eric Holder, Valerie Jarrett, the entire Black Congressional Caucus — are actually championing the black cause like Tubman and Douglass before them? Do they care about a cause greater than themselves, or only about their self-cause?

The evidence says the latter. Little has been done by the Democratic Party to uplift the black populace; two generations of their policies has left black America devastated. Little has been done by popular black leaders to uplift the black populace. They accuse Republicans of racism and demand entitlements, but what have they done for the black community? What happened to the thirst for knowledge and education that drove black parents to send their kids past a guantlet of furious mobs, state police and angry politicians?

We demanded entry into the universities. Did liberal professors really think we wanted in because we needed black studies more than we needed math and engineering degrees? When did fulfilling the dreams of our grandmothers that we study hard, get a good education, and succeed in business and academia turn into “Uncle Tom-ism”? How did we let Democrats convince us that the path to our future was welfare and minimum wage for the black masses, and riches for our “black leaders”?

Far from uplifiting us, progressive liberals have pursued policies that have systematically destroyed our families, the foundation of prosperity in healthy societies. They’ve encouraged our young people to denigrate the Christian religion that was at the core of our civil rights struggle and the identity of our communities, and in the process led them to hate and prey on their communities. They make a mockery of the Constitution, they tell us that it’s okay to despise work. Instead of hope via job programs, they peddal welfare programs.

As Daniel Patrick Moynihan observed, the black community is the canary in the mine; the social policies that have destroyed our families and our communities have started their work on white America. The liberal war on black America is driving America to the very edge of oblivion.

Black conservatives aren’t traitors to our race, as liberals would like you to believe; we’ve swallowed the red pill, stopped drinking the koolaid, opened our eyes and seen what’s happening to us. So is it so difficult to understand why black Americans are starting to look to conservative principles that champion job growth, preservation of Constitutional rights, and personal responsibility?

The Democratic Party and our mercenary black leaders won’t willingly give up the power and perks they’ve gathered on the backs of black America. Believe me, the biggest weapon the Republican Party has today is the black conservative. The Democrats know it, the race-bait-pimps and poverty princes like Sharpton and Jackson know it, and the media that move to destroy black conservatives whenever they can know it best of all. That is probably why the likes of Jackson and the MSNBC talking heads do not debate men like Ben Carson or Thomas Sowel

Liberals are afraid of black conservatives. Black conservatives mean the end to their rhetoric and threaten to shatter the chains of dependency. Harriet Tubman said,“I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more, if only they knew they were slaves.” If only Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman were here now to stand with Allen West, Carson and Sowell

Not even that. They champion their own pocket books and positions of power. They are loyal only to themselves. These two, especially, would hop on any bandwagon to boost a profit, with no concern about who loses or wins. They are both greedy self-serving opportunists. And they would both throw the other under a bus in a heartbeat if the money were right.

The Demokrat Plantations in the Urban Cesspools are a fact.

Predominantly inhabited by the Black Folks that the Demokrats seek to enslave/control,(The Great Society), but not exclusively populated by Black Folks.

The Black Leaders of the Collectivist left are Race Hustlers that suck the life blood of their own people......Much like the Jews that enriched themselves while their Cousins were slaughtered, in the European Ghettos of Hitlers Germany.

Jesse, Jesse Jr, Al, Maxine, Barry, and the whole Black Congressional Caucus, dance to the demands of the White Liberal Establishment, and are "rewarded" for doing the nasty work of oppressing their own people.

Today with 70%-80% Illiteracy Rates on the Plantation, the "folks" do not know any History, and cannot escape, and do not want to escape.

I will NEVER refer to the Collectivists of the Demokrat Victims Party as "Liberal".

There is NOTHING Liberal about any of the Elitists in Politics, or the Media, or Academia in Amerika today!

They are the New Fascists that use our Laws to oppress us, and control us.

Not just on the Demokrat Plantations where they keep their Negroes happy, but all across Amerika with their Laws based on Political Correctness, and Groupthink, as taught to our children in the Government Schools.

No Problem.

Imagine a country where the Media existed not to prop up an oppressive regime that spews what the idddioits in the Media embrace (Think of Amerika as 1960's Soviet Union).

Imagine a country where the Media actually embraced their recognition in the 1st Amendment, and reported on events based on the Impacts on Freedom and Liberty that the New Fascists present to Americans.
