‘In no other nation on earth do skin color and ethnicity mean less than in America’
“He has talked about white supremacists as fine people,” said Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren. “He’s done everything he can to stir up racial conflict and hatred in this country.”
Fellow presidential candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke agrees, assuring MSNBC that Donald Trump has made it “very clear” he’s not just a “white nationalist” constantly encouraging racism and violence, but that the president himself is a white supremacist, which Merriam-Webster defines as “a person who believes that the white race is inherently superior to other races and that white people should have control over people of other races.”
Such an extreme claim about a president of the United States has no precedent in modern history.
Yet Sen. Bernie Sanders agrees that Trump is a white supremacist, Sen. Kamala Harris has described the president as someone who “empowers white supremacists and who condones their behavior,” and former Vice President Joe Biden insists Trump “has fanned the flames of white supremacy in this nation.”
But wait. It’s not just Donald Trump that is irredeemably racist, say today’s top Democrats.
America herself, according to virtually every Democratic presidential contender, as well as much of the elite media, is a deeply and malignantly racist nation.
“Systemic racism is a white problem,” intones Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who goes so far as to speculate darkly that white supremacy “could be the lurking issue that ends this country.”
O’Rourke, who has recently taken to publicly apologizing for being white, indicts America as “clearly an imperfect, unfair, unjust and racist capitalist economy.”
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who mercifully just dropped out of the presidential race, denounces the twin evils of the age, “systemic racism” and “white privilege,” saying during the first Democratic presidential debate:
So I don’t believe that it’s the responsibility of Cory and Kamala to be the only voice that takes all of these issues of institutional racism, systemic racism in our country. I think as a white woman of privilege who is a U.S. senator running for president of the United States, it is also my responsibility to lift up those voices that are being listened to. And I can talk to those white women in the suburbs that voted for Trump and explain to them what white privilege actually is, that when their son is walking down a street with a bag of M&Ms in his pocket wearing a hoodie, his whiteness is what protects him from not being shot.
Meanwhile, the New York Times, having disgraced itself by championing for more than two years the debunked Trump-Russia conspiracy theory – which proved to be nothing more than a massive criminal fraud on the part of the Obama White House, corrupt “Deep State” actors and the Hillary Clinton campaign – has moved on to what it calls its next great cause: documenting America’s all-pervasive racism. To that end, the Times recently launched “The 1619 Project,” which openly aims to entirely “reframe” American history – even changing the date of the nation’s founding – and attributing everything that past generations of Americans have considered “great” and “exceptional” about their country to the evils of slavery.
“The 1619 Project,” reads the Times’ explanatory statement, “is a major initiative from The New York Times observing the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are.”
Responding to New York Times editorial writer Mara Gay’s statement that “nearly everything that has made America exceptional grew out of slavery,” historian and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich tweeted: “As historian, I am speechless at this ignorance. As American, I am appalled at this ugly revisionism. As media observer, I am not surprised by this vile anti-Americanism.”
Added Gingrich, “The New York Times’ 1619 Project should make its slogan, ‘All the Propaganda we want to brainwash you with.’”
‘People will eventually come to believe it’
So America – at least according to the elite media and the entire 2020 Democratic presidential bench – is a uniquely vile, oppressive and bigoted nation, with “institutional” and “systemic” racism coursing through its every institution, from law enforcement to voting, and from education to its “racist capitalist economy.” So sick is America, in their estimation, that even white people who have never uttered or thought anything bigoted in their lives are guilty. They reek of the sins of their slaveholding forefathers (even though the vast majority of Americans’ ancestors never owned slaves and a good number are descended from those who fought and died to end slavery).
But none of that matters, you see. Somehow, everyone is supposed to believe that even though a majority of American voters twice elected a black man named Barack Obama as their president (despite the fact that blacks comprise barely 12 percent of the population), ours is still somehow a deeply racist nation.
This allegation, repeated literally all day every day by the left, is not only a lie; it is arguably the left’s biggest lie about America. Yet as Hitler’s propaganda czar Joseph Goebbels affirmed, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” And Democrats and their allies in the news media are repeating this Big Lie constantly.
The reality, of course, is that in no other nation on earth do skin color and ethnicity mean less than they do in America. It is by far the most diverse, multi-ethnic, open, free and opportunity-laden society in the world today, and in all of history.
Would-be immigrants and asylum seekers from around the globe risk their lives and fortunes to come to the United States more than any other country. Why would they do that, if America really is the oppressive racist hellhole today’s Democrats and media cohorts insist it is?
Although an American can go to live and work in, say, Japan, he or she cannot become Japanese. Yet someone from any corner of the earth, of any color or ethnic or religious background, can immigrate to America (legally), apply for citizenship and become an American – every bit as American as one whose ancestors have lived here for ten generations – and enjoy all the rights and privileges that come with being a citizen of this uniquely blessed country.
That is the concept of the great American “melting pot.”
This nation’s unique genius and blessing has been that the American identity is not racial, but rather based on shared values and loyalties. The “melting pot” has worked because all of these diverse people (most of whom came to America because they wanted to become Americans) eagerly embrace the American spirit, ideals, values, language and love of country.
