A TALE OF TWO CONVENTIONS

It was the best of conventions and the worst of conventions. One was a funeral for America. The other, a new birth of freedom. One, a convention of life, the other a convention of death. One pointed to faith in the future. The other made a grave, by digging up the past. One was a beacon of light. The other was the keeper of the flames for rioters. One was a spring of hope, the other a nuclear winter of despair. Fear and hate ruled in one venue. Courage and love in the other.

Democrats carted out the waxworks. The usual suspects. Political-lifers, hacks, and traitors. Men and women festering in old bitterness, demonizing everything American. Bashing patriotism. Removing God. Even the American flag was banned. And when they finally went after the youth-vote, it was a singer who loves the number 666.

 

Obama ranted and railed against Trump. He painted a dark picture of what America would be like if Trump won. Forgetting that what he was really describing is the current conditions in cities under Democrat control.

The Democrat convention was a black hole, sucking vision, hope, unity, inspiration, decency, and faith out of anyone who would listen. Trump’s best campaign commercials would be simply to play sound bites from this raging dysfunctional family.

Meanwhile, in complete contrast, at the Republican Convention, true diversity—true unity—true love for America was raised like a banner over a weary army. The will to be great coursed in the veins of those who listened as speaker after speaker brought encouragement and the will to win.

Thus far in the convention, there have been many speakers who were amazing, but Melania, our wonderful First Lady, soared above the rest.  She brought something long missing in all the rhetoric: consolation and comfort. Her speech will be most remembered for her words to the victims of the coronavirus and their families, that evoked a sense of empathy for loss in the pandemic. “My deepest sympathy goes out to all of you who have lost a loved one and my prayers are with those who are ill or suffering,” the First Lady said. “I know many people are anxious and some feel helpless. I want you to know you are not alone.”

One of the most beautiful things she said drives home the difference between her spirit and that of the former regime. The Obamas constantly projected ingratitude for being American. They never concealed it—it oozed out of them. They mentored Ilhan Omar well in this ingratitude. She came from a war-torn nation, was rescued and brought to America, only to vilify us as evil people. Melania also came from a war-torn nation, but listen to the difference in her gracious words:

“The past three-and-a-half years have been unforgettable. There are no words to describe how honored, humbled, and fortunate I am to serve our nation as your First Lady. After many of the experiences I have had, I don’t know if I can fully explain how many people I take home with me in my heart each day, from brave soldiers who give up so much so we can be free, to children of all circumstances who we have met around the world.”

These two totally disparate conventions leave you with no doubt as to your choice. Biden is saying, ‘Vote for me and—when I don’t have a mental lapse—I will show how bad and how hard it is in this country. I will help you understand anger, your evil history, disrespect for others and self-pity. I will raise your taxes and lower your expectations. I will foist upon you and especially your children, the old abnormal, but I will call it the new normal. When we are done with this nation, you will no longer recognize it. Join the Marxist revolution.’

The other is calling out, ‘We have defeated evil before and we can do it again. We have been knocked down, but I know how to get us back up. You should be proud of America. You should be proud of the abundant instances of American greatness over the past two and a half centuries of history. Let’s not slow down the train to throw rocks at the barking dogs. Come with me, because the best is yet to come!”

Solomon described those who want to overthrow the government, “Do not be envious of evil men, nor desire to be with them; for their heart devises violence, and their lips talk of troublemaking…but the lamp of the wicked will be put out. My son, fear the Lord and the king; and do not associate with those given to revolution; for their calamity will rise suddenly, and who knows the destruction that will come to them? (Proverbs 24:1-3; 21-22).

No Matter What White People will always be considered Racist by Liberals

no matter what

Why White People Will Always Be Racists

 

Whites are continually put into the position of forever having to prove the negative, that they’re not racists. This is impossible. And that’s the point.
By D.C. McAllister

They continue to prove liberals are never satisfied. We fought the Civil War. We ratified the Fourteenth Amendment. We have the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The civil-rights movement was a success. Now, we have South Carolina pulling down the Confederate flag. But it’s still not enough. And Hillary Clinton agrees.
“Removing this symbol of our nation’s racist past is an important step towards equality and civil rights in America,” Clinton said in a written statement after the South Carolina legislature voted to remove the flag. “The flag may soon no longer fly at the State Capitol, but there is still unfinished business in confronting and acting on the inequalities that still exist in our country. We can’t hide from the hard truths about race and justice. We must do everything in our power to have the courage to name them and change them” (emphasis mine).

In saying this is a “step toward equality and civil rights,” Clinton is acting as if the civil-rights movement never happened. She is painting our nation with the brush of racism as if it were still 1950—or even 1860.

Whites Must Stop Being Racists, But They Can’t
Shelby Steele, author of “White Guilt,” calls this “manipulating stigma.” With the victory of the civil-rights movement, whites lost their moral authority—something that inevitably happens when you admit you’ve done something wrong. As a nation, we confessed our racist past, and we righted that wrong. That should have been the end of it, but with the loss of that moral authority came an increase in the moral authority of minorities—power they and the Democratic Party have twisted and used to advance one social-justice agenda after another. Steele says this happens because of white guilt, and the stigma of racism reinforces white guilt.

 

‘If they don’t prove the negative, then the stigma sticks.’
Clinton says we can’t hide “from the hard truths about race and justice.” Which hard truths is she talking about except that we must overcome our inherent racism? President Obama said it is “in our DNA” to be racist. With this statement, he stigmatizes our nation. Clinton’s call to do everything in our power to have the courage to name those truths and change them is another way of saying that whites are racists, so we must “stigmatize them” and force them to change—to comply. A lot of effort won’t even be needed, as we’ve seen with the Confederate flag. Just point the accusatory finger, and those who don’t want to be delegitimized by stigma will dissociate from any hint of racism. They will obey.

Since the civil-rights movement, which community organizers and Democratic elites capitalized on to increase their power, “whites, and particularly, institutions, have lived under threat of stigmatization,” says Steele. He explains that through this manipulation of white guilt, whites are continually put into the position of forever having to prove the negative, that they’re not racist. This is an impossible task, which is why we’ll never really be free of it. “If they don’t prove the negative, then the stigma sticks,” he writes.

The Left Incites Racial Controversy to Secure More Power
The Confederate flag controversy has never been about being sensitive to minorities in the aftermath of the dreadful mass murder in South Carolina. It has been about stigma and the Democratic Party using it to delegitimize anyone who doesn’t bend to its will. Steele explains that if an individual or institution in America is stigmatized as racist, then they are delegitimized. They lose all power and authority and influence. They are marginalized and ostracized. When that happens, they can be easily defeated or manipulated.

 

Clinton, in true totalitarian form, isn’t concerned about inequality.

When this occurs at an institutional level, that institution can no longer really function effectively. The institution wants to function, to be legitimate, so it disassociates from any appearance of racism by showing how inclusive and tolerant it is, bowing to the will of the totalitarians who want to exert their power and have complete allegiance. This is what the Great Society was built on. It’s not about compassion or equality; it’s about wanting to be able to function, to be valued, and to be legitimate.

When Clinton says inequalities still exist in our country, this is a play at white guilt. Blacks and whites are both equal before the law, so her statement is a glaring falsehood. But Clinton, in true totalitarian form, isn’t concerned about inequality. She’s concerned about power.

The Only Thing We Have to Fear
As Tom Nichols writes at The Federalist about totalitarians like Clinton, “They are not really trying to capture something as pedestrian as political equality, nor are they satisfied if they get it. They are not really seeking a win in the courts, or a legal solution, or a negotiated settlement. Those are all just merit badges to be collected along the way to a more important goal: what they really want, and what they in fact demand, is that you agree with them. They want you to believe.”

The Silent Majority has now become the Silenced Majority.

While Nichols calls these people the “new totalitarians,” they’re not all that new. They’ve been with us for decades. The difference is they have now accumulated a significant amount of power, and the Silent Majority has now become the Silenced Majority. They don’t want to be stigmatized. They don’t want to lose their legitimacy in society. So they remain silent and they conform.

“White guilt is a powerful, powerful force,” Steele says. “Not because people feel guilty, but because people are stigmatized, and again have to prove the negative all the time, and living forever under threat of being stigmatized.”

Stigma is a club in the hand of the totalitarian to increase power. Clinton, Obama, Loretta Lynch, and others will use it over and over again, as long as people allow the stigma to stick. As long as individuals and institutions fear delegitimization because of stigma and refuse to pay the high price of dissent, the power of the totalitarians will grow.
