Democrats and Modern Slavery

Thomas Sowell is on point once again in his recent post at Townhall.com. He has demonstrated why the Democrats and their power elite are manipulating black Americans for their own political agenda. (More Below)


Sowell says it bluntly, that Democrats have to keep blacks in a state of fear, he writes:

If the share of the black vote that goes to the Democrats ever falls to 70 percent, it may be virtually impossible for the Democrats to win the White House or Congress, because they have long ago lost the white male vote and their support among other groups is eroding. Against that background, it is possible to understand their desperate efforts to keep blacks paranoid, not only about Republicans but about American society in general.


This state of fear is reminiscent. of the same state of fear Democrats imposed on the blacks after the civil war. So it seems the Democrats are up to their old tricks again. Of course the Republicans are always branded as the "white-man's" party and as racists, a tactic that Sowell readily exposes, he writes:

Liberal Democrats, especially, must keep blacks fearful of racism everywhere, including in an administration whose Cabinet includes people of Chinese, Japanese, Hispanic, and Jewish ancestry, and two consecutive black Secretaries of State. Blacks must be kept believing that their only hope lies with liberals.


The liberals have fashioned a skewed reality out of misapplied historical facts, a sure trick of any proto-fascist organization where the memory hole has no cap. For instance, more Republicans voted for the Civil Rights act as opposed to Democrates, Sowell writes:

Moreover, contrary to political myth, a higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. But facts have never stopped politicians or ideologues before and show no signs of stopping them now.


The Democrats have attempted to make themselves as the saviors of blacks but the Democratic party is the black man's greatest enemy. As Sowell says:

All black progress in the past must be depicted as the result of liberal government programs and all hope of future progress must be depicted as dependent on the same liberalism.


This is quite contrary to the facts.

The Grand Strategy

Is the conservative movement breaking apart? Pat Buchanan seems to think so. In some ways he is right. There are stumbling blocks hampering the conservative movement today but this does not spell its demise tomorrow. The political domination of all levels of government by the Republican party and its neo-conservative philosophy does not signal the end of the conservative effort but an advancement in this great war of attrition. But the war has not ended and will not end until we witness the total and absolute destruction of the Liberal myth. But what should our next move be?(More Below).


Our next move is obvious: we must concentrate our efforts in winning the culture war. We must dig the trenchs and mount the maxim guns. Buchanan makes this same point:

But it is culture and values that matter for Mr. Buchanan, who for more than 40 years has helped shape American conservatism. In his 1992 speech to the Republican National Convention in Houston, he declared: "There is a religious war going on in our country for the soul of America. It is a cultural war, as critical to the kind of nation we will one day be as was the Cold War itself." He is still fighting that war. "American culture has become toxic and poisonous," he says. "Take a look at what Hollywood produces today and what it produced in the 1950s. The alteration is dramatic."


Indeed. But unfortunately Buchanan and I part ways at his lack of confidence in the conservatives' ability to win the culture war:

He suggests that in some respects, traditionalists might be fighting for a lost cause. "We say we won a great victory by defeating gay marriage in 11 state-ballot referenda in November," he says. "But I think in the long run, that will be seen as a victory in defense of a citadel that eventually fell." As he later says, "I can't say we won the cultural war, and it's more likely we lost it."


It is never too late. The culture war can be won. And with such a victory the final and ultimate destruction of liberalism would not be far away. But the cancer inflicting society is a very powerful one. It has become resistant to many antidotes used against it in the past. Yet laying siege to the liberal stronghold may not be as tough as conservatives once thought, especially if we figure out which part of the wall to put the battering ram against. Thomas Sowell gives good indication where conservatives should focus their main efforts:

Indeed, the left in general has increasingly favored unelected institutions which impose their views, whether the federal courts, environmental agencies, or such national bureaucracies as the National Park Service or international agencies like the United Nations or the International Court of Justice at the Hague.


The reduction of the beauracracy, reformation of public school curriculum, and the passing of a constitutional amendment that reduces the power of the Supreme Court would strike a fatal blow against neo-liberalism. It was the "social revolution" or rather debacle, imposed by the same institutions mentioned above, that gave impetus to the conservative movement, we should turn our eyes to that history and renew our efforts against that same enemy that is with us. As Buchanan says:

Supreme Court decisions in the 1960s and '70s, Mr. Buchanan says, sparked a conservative response. "The conservative movement is in large part a reaction to the social revolution that had been imposed on this country from above, without the consent of the people, by the Supreme Court. "Frankly, you would not have a cultural war in this country if the Supreme Court had said, 'Look, free speech is one thing, but pornography is not covered by the First Amendment.'"


A needed reminder, indeed.
