The Minority Report

The Minority Report
Vol: 94 Issue: 30 Thursday, July 30, 2009

Political correctness is rightly called the ‘tyranny of the minority’ because it is virtually impossible for a member of a majority group to claim discrimination.

And it is virtually impossible for a member of that same majority group to mount an effective defense when a discrimination charge is lodged against him.

A good case in point is the Harvard Professor of Racism, Dr. Henry Lewis Gates, who evidently believes that being an oppressed “Black Man in America” justifies oppressing white people.

Henry Lewis Gates is a tenured professor at Harvard University. By his own admission, Gates was raised by his mother to hate white people. He has expressed his admiration for Malcom X and the Nation of Islam. He teaches Afrocentrism — the secular equivalent to Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s Black Liberation Theology.

In short, Gates is openly racist, makes no apology for his racism, and makes his living teaching others why black racism is justified because white racism once ruled America.

I’m not going to rehash the entire incident — you should already know all the details. But I want to look at some of the nuances the incident brings bubbling back to the surface.

First off, there is the whole ‘post-racial America’ thing Barack Obama. Obama was supposed to put a period on America’s racial history. Barack Obama was above race — heck he was even above American partisan politics.

He is part black, part white, part Arab, born in either Hawaii or Kenya, raised in Indonesia, educated at both Columbia and Harvard . . . here was a racial healer. Or he could have been.

Frankly, I had thought we were already beyond race before Obama got here. The previous administration had so many blacks and Latinos in key political positions that we’d stopped noticing by the time Condi Rice became the first black woman Secretary of State in US history.

The only racial stuff I can recall in recent memory were all the Uncle Tom cartoons about Rice and Colin Powell — but they were all done by liberal Democrat cartoonists like Tom Oliphant and Garry Trudeau.

By the time Barack Obama got elected, there was a sense of ‘been there, done that’ about the whole ‘glass ceiling concept. Even after a campaign that was entirely focused on the candidate’s race.

We really, really wanted to put race behind us. So, why is it that we can’t stop talking about it?

Because guys like Barack Obama, Jeremiah Wright, Henry Gates, ad nauseum can’t let us. An end to racial conflict is the last thing in the world they want to see.

Not so much because they are black. Not even because they are racists, although they most certainly are.

Because they are Marxists.

Assessment:

Karl Marx believed that social change is what was needed for a better society, and to get social change there must be class conflict. Marx’s major concern of social change was economic change.

Marxist theory has been at the heart of every totalitarian system of government of the 20th century except islamofascism.

Marx’s most well known work dealt with class conflict, the opposition between the capitalists and the working class. Here is how Marx chose up sides for his class warfare strategy:

The capitalists are also known as the bourgeoisie. They are the ones that are responsible for controlling the land, factories, etc.

The working class, which is also known as the proletariat, are the workers that are being exploited by the bourgeoisie.

That is why Obama believes taxing the rich to pay for his health care plan is ‘social justice’. Because Marx told him so.

But justice is, by definition, ‘just’ which means, ‘fair’. Marxist social justice is therefore somewhat easy to identify, since it always goes in only one direction.

That’s why Obama wanted to ram it all through before the summer recess and before anybody has time to look at it too closely. Marxist social justice rarely stands up under close scrutiny.

For example, of the “46 million uninsured” that we keep hearing about, at least one-third are illegal aliens. They are NOT ‘uninsured American workers.’ They are not even ‘undocumented immigrants’ — insured or otherwise.

An ‘immigrant’ is one who HAS documents. There is no such thing as an ‘illegal immigrant’ — it is a nonsense phrase.

Texas A&M holds an annual contest for the most appropriate definition of a contemporary term. A couple of years back the term up for definition was ‘Political Correctness’.

The winner defined Political Correctness as follows: “Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up [poop] by the clean end.”

(I substituted ‘poop’ — it has even more impact when read in the original — but that’s what the phrase, ‘illegal immigrant’ exemplifies. An effort to pick it up by the ‘clean’ end.)

That leaves roughly 30 million. Of that number, most are younger workers who can afford health insurance but would rather have the premiums, or those who self-insure through health insurance savings account.

This number does NOT include the indigent who cannot afford health care. They are already covered by Medicare/Medicaid/welfare, etc.

Those who actually have no insurance and can’t get it probably account for about one third of the total 40-odd million uninsured. That accounts for roughly five percent of the US population.

The remedy proposed by the Marxists is to revamp the entire system to address that five percent — over the objections of the 85% who are satisfied with the health care they currently have.

Then there is the whole ACORN and union bosses connection. When the government took over the auto industry, the capitalist investors that got nothing. The industry management got fired and their contracts revoked.

The workers (and the unions) got everything — Chrysler now belongs to the union that forced it out of business.

ACORN openly subverted the general election in favor of Barack Obama and is being rewarded with billions of dollars in stimulus money.

Remember when the Black Panthers sent uniformed thugs carrying nightsticks to stand outside of polling places? The charges were all quietly dropped.

I don’t need to rehash all the details — Glenn Beck is doing a great job on his afternoon television program on Fox. He’s doing such a good job of exposing it all that sometimes, even I wonder if the guy’s a crackpot — until I backtrack his research.

Beck is explaining how it works, and even doing a pretty good job of explaining why it works. But he admits he can’t understand why nobody else is noticing.

I think this is where Bible prophecy comes in. Paul’s letter to Timothy warning of ‘perilous times’ reads like an outline of the agenda and moral scruples of the Democrat party in America, and of the secular world in general.

Even today as Obama’s poll numbers are falling at home, the rest of the world’s secular governments just love the guy. Despite his policies hammering their own economies, as their unemployment numbers soar and their GDPs’ wane, they love their Obama as much as any US liberal Democrat.

Of course they do. They share his morals and his Marxist worldview.

Once one accepts the moral worldview that ‘all politicians lie’ — then politicians can lie all they want without fear of repercussion. Thirty years ago, being caught in a lie could end a political career. Today, it is business as usual.

Politicians lie all the time. And they get exposed all the time. The public only objects when they don’t like the lie.

No wonder Beck is mystified — it is a mystery — one might even call it a ‘mystery of iniquity‘ — it has all the elements. Why would people prefer the lie?

“And for THIS cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2nd Thessalonians 2:11-12)

The mystery of iniquity is already well-established — “only He who now letteth will let, until He be taken out of the way.” (2nd Thessalonians 2:7)

And the Church with Him. Maranatha!
