    Re: Ku Klux Klan Passing out Candy

    If the New Deal or the ACA remain the only pieces of legislation or deficit spending Republicans can point to as their sole claims that Liberals are "big government" spenders or the claim that Liberals have solely expanded the role of government or broadened the reach of Executive powers, then all I can say is you guys will forever be in perpetual denial about your party's role is increasing spending, expanding federal reach into the public sphere and failing to limit Executive powers while a Republican was in the White House and/or controlled Congress.

    I mean, for all the claims Republicans make on Democrats, Independents and Moderates being "Obama Bots", you guys sure ignore how controlled your minds seem to be for one-party rule. You purposely ignore your own failings. That I find very sad and also troubling for this country. It's like you never learn from your own mistakes. You just keep preaching the same old BS and wonder why your party can't seem to govern once in power. But you can certainly convince the public to follow your narrative no matter how wrong-headed you are.

    Now they use false narratives and false charges of racism in addition to a perpetuating a victim mentallity to control minorities.

    In the end the effect is the same. Dependance for the purpose of control and power.

    Tell me, are places like the Robert Taylor Homes, Cabrini Green, South side of Chicago and Magnolia place in New Orleans the consequence of Conservative policies ?

    Under decades of isolated Democrat rule in places like Detroit, are minorities better or worse off ?

    In Chicago which has been run by Democrats for years are minorities safer and more independent, less impberished or are they ignored ?

    Under Obama, the first black president has economic conditions for minorities improved or gotten worse ?

    Sorry, but you can accuse the right wing of racism all you want, the fact is there is a long and established history of Democrat policies that are enacted exclusively to pray upon minorities and keep them poor and dependant.
    I like how you use events from the past to try and paint today's Democrats as the "same old racist" of today. Sorry if events just don't play out as you see them.

    Most folks here have already acknowledged that the Democrats of old were very closely affiliated with the KKK and, as such, dominated the state and local landscape where racial and/or segregationist policies were concerned. In fact, I've said it for quite some time now that federal and local policies have often times worked in concert to give the elusion to Blacks and other minority groups that they could easily assimilate into White American society. You've only proved my point that early on at every turn where such assimilation was attempted, many Blacks/minorities were rebuffed from successfully integrating into White society from Jim Crow to local ordinances that gave more favor to Whites than they did Blacks. Even the development of the very housing projects you mention were hailed as "affordable housing for the poor", but when you deny fair and equal distribution of public services to these communities that are commonly afforded to White suburbean neighborhoods, i.e., sanitation, police protection, maintenance, affordable and easily accessible shopping, etc., even a confined society will eventually begin to erode. And I'll dare say it: White flight quickened the pace for the demise of the communities you've mentioned. Yet, many (White) people will completely ignore these basic facts and instead point the finger squarely at the Blacks who lived there and say, "See, look what we gave you and all you did was tear it down," without ever once acknowledging how federal and/or local policies contributed to the chaos.

    Fast-forward to today and see how Conservative Republican politics spearheaded by majority White politicians are doing much the same thing today. For example, you claim that federal education policies are doing harm to the public education system, yet you ignore how "No Child Left Behind" did more harm than good. Yet, you ridicule a Black President for trying to strengthen the public education system (i.e., Race to the Top and Common Core) but refuse to accept the fact that you can tailor either program to suite the needs of public education systems within your state/local governments. Some states like Alabama have even gone so far as to push a "freedom of education" agenda that gives the illusion that parents can move their K-12 students from a failing public school (which coincidentally were all identified in predominately Black neighborhoods) to a successful public school all the while knowing that doing so will likely have a devastating impact on minority communities because they've pegged a high transfer price tag to the student transfers knowing full well that most poor Black families won't be able to afford to cost to transfer their kids out of the failing school(s). Yet, every (White) Republican politician (in Alabama) while laud this policy as "freedom of choice" when all it really boils down to is yet another "bait and switch" tactic by Conservative politicians in power.

    I'll say this: I'm all for progress through personal empowerment, recognizing opportunities, taking the bull by the horns and moving yourself forward to the best of your abilities. But to ignore the fact that over the century that slavery has been abolished such opportunities have never come easy for minorities (Blacks) AND when many Blacks have tried to move themselves beyond their present circumstances over the years obstacles have been forcefully placed in their way either through legalism or forced majority rule, is to ignore how the problems many Blacks face today are part and parcel a direct result of White social and/or political instigation into affairs into Black communities. No truer testament to the truth of my statement can be found than in the vey racist, bigoted and instigative institution than the KKK - the very topic of this thread.

    They would be vilified and the government would go after them........White people are not allowed to be proud of themselves and their race........only other races can do that (see the Jeremy Lin story and the Jackie Robinson story). For the first time in human history........in about the last 60 years......a race of people has decided they can't be proud of who they are..........

    Interesting question...

    Does anyone have an answer?

    And what if the situation were different? What if it were the NAACP, Nation of Islam or the Black Panther Party using this same recruitment method in predominately Black neighborhoods? Would those defending "White Pride" give the same level of open-mindedness to either Black group?

    There's a difference between espousing White Pride -vs- White Power. Same holds true for Black who would espouse Black Pride -vs- Black Power.

    Be proud of your heritage. I find nothing wrong with that. But...

    The moment such pride turns from talking up your ethnic heritage and speaking fondly of your people's achievements and/or positive contributions in American history to "We did this and all of this is ours and everyone else or certain races of people who aren't like us must leave, die or hang," that's when it's time to lift the veil on your _____-only group and discover what's really going on behind closed doors.

    Big government, not deficit spending. The Libbos are the ones building the nanny state. Deal with it.

    Or, if anyone can't deal with it, the entrance to the exit is wide open and there's no anchor on anyone's backside.




    IOW: if you're not happy in the USA don't let the door hit you where the good Lord split you.
