Dennis Prager: It’s the ‘Progressives’ that are the ‘Racists’

avatar

There are few things as tiring as the constant refrain from liberals and Democrats that conservatives and Republicans are racists. For many, the intellectual vapidity of this charge no doubt causes many eyes to glaze over and the changing of many TV channels.

In a recent post, syndicated columnist Dennis Prager addressed this claptrap and made some excellent points in the process. It might be a ridiculous accusation, but it is having an impact:

Given the power of repetition, one consequence is that many Americans, especially young ones, believe that one side of the political spectrum — the right — is racist.

Having been involved with conservatives for about 30 years, I have long known that this isn’t true. In fact, the charge of conservative racism is so easily refuted that it is difficult to imagine anyone without a vested interest in libeling conservatives believing it.

The popularity of black conservatives such as Justice Clarence Thomas and Ben Carson doesn’t even put a dent in this strategy of the political left.

Prager then turns attention to who he believes are actually racists: political liberals and progressives. He gives several examples, here’s one:

[Another] proof that racism has a home on the left is the left’s primary argument against requiring all citizens to show identification when they vote. The liberal-left-Democrat argument, repeated by almost every editorial page, columnist and news outlet, and by every Democrat, is that such a requirement would greatly suppress the black vote. Thus, voter ID is racist. This is said so often and with such conviction that few people ask whether it is true: Will requiring ID really suppress the black vote?

The answer, shown in study after study, is no. Therefore, people who assume that voter ID would suppress the black vote have to believe that millions of blacks are uniquely incompetent citizens. Few things in civic life are simpler than obtaining an ID, and identification is needed almost everywhere in society. One has to believe in widespread black incompetence in order to believe that obtaining an ID is too difficult for a vast number of blacks.

Prager also addresses educational liberty:

Finally, there is the Democratic and liberal opposition to school vouchers that would enable many blacks parents to send their children to schools superior to the awful ones that the (liberal-run) educational establishment has provided blacks children.

Most blacks want school vouchers, but most liberals vehemently oppose them. Why? Because what is good for teachers unions is of more importance to the left than what is good for blacks.
