Are You a Racist?
By Joe Messina – BarbWire guest contributor
Are you a racist? Yes, you are. Good, I have your attention. I just wanted to see if I could get your attention by calling you a racist, since it’s what everyone else does. Today the word hardly holds any meaning. One group uses it to try to make another group feel bad or to get the attention of others that might come to help pile on. In some cases they use it simply because they’ve got nothing else to debate with!
Webster says racism is:
- a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
- a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
- hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.
Well, the first misnomer is the word “race.” We are all part of the same race… the human race! We are made up of many ethnicities and cultures, but, last I checked, scientists still call all of us the human race.
Many of those on the Left consistently call Conservatives, Christians, religious, Republicans and other “non black” people racists. Why? Because we are one of the 4 labels previously listed. And to add frosting to that cake… we aren’t Democrats.
According to “them” I am a racist because I think the current president is a loser. That he can’t govern. He treats his job as if he is the president of a country club and all he has to do to get what he wants is raise membership dues. Why does that make me racist? Because he is black and I am white. Not because I am expressing my own opinion about his job performance (or lack thereof) but because of my color that they brought into the conversation.
Yet none of that fits the true term or even comes close to the definition of racism
According to “them” I am a racist because I think the flood at the border, prompted by this administration, by people who stay here illegally is a problem and I want the border and the American Laws protected and adhered to. How does that make me a racist? Again, I can’t find a connection between the real meaning of racist and me simply wanting the rules followed.
Remember, over 80% of the people who arrive here illegally, are processed, and given a notice to appear within 15 to 20 days in court never show up. They never had an intention to show up. If you support that kind of action then you support breaking the law and from my point of view you are not a racist but an accomplice to the crime and should be punished accordingly.
According to “them” I am a racist because I think that religious rights should be honored and not trampled on. That when business owners choose not to pay for an abortion drug that goes against their religious convictions it doesn’t mean women can’t get their contraceptive drug it just means that their employer won’t be paying for their abortion. Funny thing is, recent polls show that most American’s don’t want to pay for abortions either (except in the case of a mother’s imminent danger). But because access to abortions mostly affects minorities, the Left would not only label me a racist but a woman hater too. Ironically, Margaret Sanger is achieving her goal, to weed out what she called “the undesirables.” Not my goal… hers.
These are just a few examples as to how the progressive Left is either low-IQ or low information. They throw around the word racist for anyone that doesn’t agree with them. But that not what the word means! Black, progressive, Left, socialist groups (or Democratic Black Caucus for short) call black non-progressive, non-Left, conservative, Christians racist! How is that even possible? They can’t pull one word from the definition to back that statement up.
The reason it’s so hard to believe anything coming out of that party is because of all the lies originating there, including calling people racists who demonstrate none of those characteristics.
Look people, if you want us to take you seriously then speak English. If you want money, don’t hide behind bogus bills. The president recently asked for $2 billion to help the illegal refugees coming over the border and within a few days he asked for $3.7 billion because he needed more money for border security. Yet less than 2% of it would be going to support the border. Say what you mean!
Did you know that English in spoken in the air all around the world? A Turkish pilot landing in Japan is speaking English with the air traffic controllers and ground controllers and to each other. Why? Because they needed a universal language with common, well-defined definitions so they could be easily understood and carried out to keep us safe in the air. They don’t deviate. The definitions of the words aren’t changed on a whim because the pilot or air traffic controller didn’t like what it meant. They stick to it and air flight is the safest form of transportation on the planet.
When you call me a racist, in order for me or anyone else with a bit of intelligence to understand what you mean you need to use the word as intended. And if it’s not the correct word, use the right one!
So to my progressive, Left, wanna-be American comrades, use our language. Stop being deceitful and just maybe we can come back from the damage that your Supreme Leader of the Democratic Soviet Socialist Republic of America has created. And just maybe we can have the America that once was and that the world can count on again.
To my non-progressive, non-Left, conservative, Christian, religious folks, if you are a racist in the true sense of the word, it’s not a good thing… so change! However, if you are a racist as defined by the Democratic Soviet Socialist Republic of America, be proud of the fact that you are living rent-free (the ultimate badge of socialism) in the heads of the progressive Left.
America wake up FIGHT BACK or your gonna lose it!
