Nothing is normal in our country anymore

“The American people cannot be distracted by racial exploitation; the future of this great nation truly does hang in the balance.” â€” Steve McCann
Americans need to realize the damage that racial manipulation has done to our country. The blame can be put squarely on the Democratic Party. They have used racism for political gain since the days of the Ku Klux Klan. Let’s have a brief refresher course about just who the Klan were.
Militant members of the Democratic Party, calling themselves the Ku Klux Klan, spread like wildfire across the South after the Civil War. The group targeted Republicans who were involved in freeing the slaves. The Klan attempted to preserve white supremacy through violence, including torture and murder. They intimidated and killed both blacks and whites. By the late 1800s, the federal government began to prosecute the Klan for its crimes and curb the fanatical mayhem.
The current nonsense that the Republican Party is not for all people is just that. Conservatives want everyone to be successful and reach their highest potential. That is the American spirit. The blessings of freedom must be kept in this land forever. Unfortunately, our country is going down the path of repressive tyranny â€” thanks largely to the modern Democratic Party, which is obsessed with making racial unrest a central theme of its agenda.
The pre-eminent racist
During the last national election, voters should have been more careful to scrutinize the candidates. Barack Obama has a racist past. His communist friends and family could hardly be described as honorable in matters of race. The presence of America-hating, race-agitating Rev. Jeremiah Wright in Obama’s life was evidence that Obama was going to be a problem if elected. It’s my personal opinion that the president’s religious beliefs are mainly what determines how he leads this nation, including foreign policies.
When Obama was serving in the U.S. Senate, his voting record was that of an extremist. He may have presented himself as a centrist, but in reality he was a Marxist radical. As long as he continues to sit in the Oval Office, our country seems helpless to stop his “progressive” plan to undo our constitutional republic. So far, nothing has been able to counter his deliberate imposition of socialism. America suffers from his dictates.
Approaching the whole topic of race â€” which appears to permeate Obama’s tactics â€” is a risky undertaking. No one wants to be misunderstood and called a racist. If a white person speaks the truth about big government handouts â€” i.e., so-called “Social Justice” â€” he or she is demonized and condemned as a bigot. Today, the Democrat Party still manipulates people of color by tickling their ears with lies, while seeking to control them with demagoguery. Activists have even used the churches to enslave them through Black Liberation Theology â€” which is Marxism with a hallelujah choir.
Excerpts from “Never-Ending Racial Hostility” by Steve McCann
A few weeks ago, American Thinker published Steve McCann’s commentary “Never-Ending Racial Hostility.” Below are excerpts:
“I came to the United States in 1952. At that time, this was a segregated country. Discrimination based on race was something I could not understand nor had ever experienced. I lived, once adopted, in a quiet quasi-Southern town where I saw firsthand the invidious nature of rank bigotry and racism.
“My father managed two movie theatres, one in the white part of town and one in the black. One time, he took me to his office at the white theatre and then to the one in the black theatre. I asked my father why the makeups of the audiences were so starkly different, and he replied, ‘That is just the way it is.’ Not satisfied with his answer, I asked why the dark-skinned people live on one side of the river and the white on the other. He said, ‘That’s the way it is in this country â€” people prefer to live with their own races and not mix, besides it’s the law.’ I replied to him that I thought it was wrong. I had never viewed or perceived the nature of a person by his or her skin color. . . .
“For decades now, unscrupulous black leaders have been able to extort money and political power through the tactic of yelling racism whenever an incident involves white and black citizens. Whether there is racism at play is immaterial. As the charge of ‘racist’ has been the greatest societal pejorative since the 1960s, most people have simply cowered, paid up, and tacitly admitted guilt. Meanwhile, the black population has been repeatedly told by their elected officials that the reason for the poverty and despair in the inner cities is due solely to white racism.
“Further, this hopelessness could be mitigated only by reparations, more government spending, and by citizens continuing to vote for these same left-wing Democrats who had helped create these conditions in the first place. This has been a deliberate effort to keep resentment alive instead of solving the real problems of these communities, mainly education, economic development, and job creation.
“However, the most egregious and disgusting actions of all have been by the white liberal Democratic politicians who have used the race card to achieve power and advance their political agenda. They do not care if racial strife is perpetuated, nor are they concerned for the well-being of the black population, except to use them as a pawn in their incessant drive to control the levers of government.
“With the election of a far-left president and Congress determined to remake the country, these white race-hustlers have now shown their true character by asserting that any criticism of President Obama’s radical agenda is racist in nature. In order to stifle criticism, induce guilt, and pass their socialist agenda, they claim this is still a racist country. . . .
“Racial relations [,however,] are no longer an overarching issue for our times. Rather, the challenges facing the United States today affect all, regardless of skin color. The policies put forth by President Obama and his radical cohorts in Congress will have a devastating impact on the ability of this nation to survive as a great economic and military power. The American people cannot be distracted by racial exploitation; the future of this great nations truly does hang in the balance. Full article
Every day, Americans wake up and understand the fact that our president is not looking out for our country or its citizens. Everything he does appears irrational on the surface. In actuality, his plans are carefully calculated. Most Americans do not want a socialized healthcare system foisted upon them. Our “Saul Alinsky” president can be counted upon to reject the will of the people â€” without conscience. Will the healthcare bill ever be repealed? It’s up to us to make sure it does by our own activism in the upcoming elections. There are other acceptable options for improving the best medical system in the world besides socialized medicine. Allow those we vote into power this fall to achieve that goal. They’ve heard from the people, and I believe conservative politicians get it. Smaller government is desperately needed.
Under this corrupt administration’s “care,” we do not have a healthy, growing economy. The number of people who are losing their jobs is overwhelming. Obama has nearly bankrupted our country. People fear whatever else he may have in store to level American culture. We’re on the way to becoming a banana republic. Last year, Democrats were passing bills without reading them. This year, they are passing bills without voting on them, thanks in large measure to the president’s Czars. When we give strength to the GOP, we will see things change, and our economy will start to rebound and grow throughout the private sector.
Enough phony dialogue about race
When some black Obama voters exclaim that they wish to have a dialogue with whites, it means they want an open opportunity to accuse their fellow Americans of being prejudiced. They don’t seem to want to acknowledge that people of every color, including white folk, voted for the president.
Since I’m not a bigoted person by nature, I’m very concerned about what is taking place. Americans are being manipulated into a phony dialogue over racism because Obama wills it. Never mind that bigotry of any kind is a sin in God’s eyes:
“If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, Love your neighbor as yourself, you are doing right. But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers” (James 2:1-9).
Rev. Martin Luther King’s dream was never to judge a man or woman by their color. He knew such practice was evil. “Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.” â€” Martin Luther King, Jr.
When does all of this obnoxious racial caterwauling stop? Will the New Black Panthers, the union thugs, and communist anarchists force America to revisit the disruptive 60′s and its rampaging riots within our inner cities and rural communities? It’s all a possibility. If you have not noticed â€” nothing is normal in our country anymore.
The upcoming elections are extremely important. “We The People” must vote every Democrat out of office. And come 2012, we must show Mr. President the door.
I believe that we will not be successful in taking back our magnificent nation without the Lord’s help. It’s time to pray and “put on the whole armor of God.” Listen: Ephesians 6:10-20
