“Reverse Racism” Is Real — And Dangerous

May 12, 2021 Frontpage No Comments

By CHRISTOPHER MANION

In 2008, Bishop Wilton Gregory welcomed the election of Barack Obama, the most radically pro-abortion president ever, as “a great step forward for humanity and a sign that in the United States the problem of racial discrimination has been overcome.”
Well, things didn’t really work out that way. Instead of ending racism in the United States, no one fomented it more than Barack Obama. And Joe Biden has picked up where Obama left off.
In early 2020, Biden wasn’t leading in the Democrat primaries. In fact, his opponents were condemning his own racism, citing his friendship with former Senate Majority Leader and Ku Klux Klan Grand Cyclops Robert Byrd (D., W.Va.).
In January 2020, Bernie Sanders defined the Left’s lexicon: President Trump “a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, a xenophobe, and a religious bigot.” Well, Biden couldn’t afford to alienate “Bernie’s Leftist Legions” — how could he win without them? So he made a deal with Bernie: He’d talk moderate but act radical. And Sanders dropped out of the race on April 8.
A week later, Biden tweeted that “Trump is Fanning the Flames of White Supremacy and Hatred in Our Country.” Six weeks later, George Floyd died on the streets of Minneapolis, and ever since, Joe Biden has been all racism, all the time.
In his recent speech before a nearly-empty House chamber, Biden not only stoked, he threatened. “We have a real chance to root out systemic racism that plagues American life in many other ways,” he said, adding that “the most lethal terrorist threat to the homeland today is from white supremacist terrorism.”
Now, ever since September 11, 2001, the war against terrorism has been America’s Prime Mandate. Joe Biden has decided to continue that war, only with a new enemy: the American people.

Tim Scott Says, “Not So Fast!”

Sen. Tim Scott (R., S.C.) delivered the Republican response to Biden’s House speech. “President Biden promised you a specific kind of leadership,” he said. “He promised to unite a nation. To lower the temperature. To govern for all Americans, no matter how we voted. That was the pitch. You just heard it again. But our nation is starving for more than empty platitudes.”
Of course, two of those platitudes were Joe’s “racism” and “white supremacy” mantras. Scott targeted them directly.
“Hear me clearly,” he said. “America is not a racist country. It’s backwards to fight discrimination with different discrimination. And it’s wrong to try to use our painful past to dishonestly shut down debates in the present. . . . Race is not a political weapon to settle every issue the way one side wants. It’s too important.”
Joe Biden had just called white Americans the new Osama Bin Laden, and Tim Scott called him on it. “Our best future won’t come from Washington schemes or socialist dreams,” he continued. “It will come from you — the American people, black, Hispanic, white, and Asian, Republican and Democrat, brave police officers and black neighborhoods. We are not adversaries. We are family! We are all in this together.”
Scott was specific. He lambasted the “powerful grown-ups” who kept black kids out of school for a year. “Kids like me were left behind,” he said. It’s “The clearest case for school choice in our lifetimes.”
“Powerful forces want to pull us apart,” he said. “A hundred years ago, kids in classrooms were taught the color of their skin was their most important characteristic — and if they looked a certain way, they were inferior. Today, kids again are being taught that the color of their skin defines them — and if they look a certain way, they’re an oppressor.”
“Nowhere do we need common ground more desperately than in our discussions of race. I have experienced the pain of discrimination,” Scott said. “I’ve also experienced a different kind of intolerance. I get called ‘Uncle Tom’ and the N-word — by ‘progressives’! By liberals!. . . Believe me, I know our healing is not finished.”
Scott shredded Biden’s bland banalities with sharp clarity. “From colleges to corporations to our culture, people are making money and gaining power by pretending we haven’t made any progress. By doubling down on the divisions we’ve worked so hard to heal.”
And then he committed the cardinal sin — he praised Donald Trump!
“Just before COVID, we had the most inclusive economy in my lifetime. The lowest unemployment ever recorded for African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asian-Americans. The lowest for women in nearly 70 years. Wages were growing faster for the bottom 25 percent than the top 25 percent. That happened because Republicans focused on expanding opportunity for all Americans.
“We passed Opportunity Zones, criminal justice reform, and permanent funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities for the first time ever. We fought the drug epidemic, rebuilt our military, and cut taxes for working families and single moms like mine.”
With that, the brains in the Blue Bubble exploded.

Tim Scott Must Be Destroyed!

The Left simply lost it. A fervid Bezos Blogger called him cynical, confused, ignorant, and a liar. “Scott didn’t even seem to believe many of the words he said. . . .”
And then: “The problem, at least on some level, was that Tim Scott is Black.”
Yes, that is definitely a problem for the Left. Tim Scott didn’t behave. Shame on him!
Without “Racism!” the Left has nothing but raw power lust. So the Post condescends to this black lackey who’s just a tool of racists anyway, mouthing a “pre-written” text that he’s too stupid to understand.
With that rank and racist hatred, the pirouetting Posties think they’ve shamed and silenced Tim Scott for good.
Yes, they really believe that. And they aren’t alone.
“Uncle Tim” — a slanderous version of “Uncle Tom” — trended on Twitter. “I had hoped that Scott might show some common sense, but it seems clear he is little more than an Oreo with no real principles,” wrote Lamar County, Texas Democrat chairman Gary O’Connor.
O’Connor later apologized, but no one else did. According to Newsbusters, whose reporters work off their Purgatory monitoring the Hate Media, MSNBC’s Christina Greer “defended the slur because it was a public display of ‘the internal conversations that many black people have about Tim Scott and the Republican Party’ since he supports the GOP and the Trump presidency. Greer then argued Scott should come to his senses and realize that his Republican Party was the reason why he grew up poor, began with a less-than-stellar education, and had an illiterate grandfather.”
The View’s co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg, respectively, were “appalled” and “bothered” by how Sen. Scott didn’t address “systemic racism to their liking,” Rebecca Downs reported.

Calling All Bishops

America’s Catholic bishops should confront such vile hatred head-on. But they don’t. They are prisoners of their own twisted vocabulary. They proclaim that “racism is America’s original sin” — borne, of course, by whites only, except for the Woke. Since the 1970s, they have bought into the Marxist notion of class struggle. Racism is not a personal sin, it’s “systemic.” Like former Catholic Pete Buttigieg, their website embraces that amoral ideology. That’s how they can tell us that the majority of whites are racists whether we know it or not.
By that definition, Tim Scott is a racist too — not only because he rejects Biden’s working principle of White Supremacy, but also because he praises the real progress that blacks made under Trump that Biden seeks to reverse.
Let’s face it. Obama, Bernie, and Biden have moved their party beyond socialism. They’re consolidating power, and they’re using Racism! as their motivating force. Unfortunately, our bishops have confirmed the Democrats’ Marxist moral vocabulary instead of shredding it with the truths of the faith.
We await the brave bishop who will dare to defend Tim Scott and the Americans of all colors who are the targets of this vicious and racist assault.
