I Say Tomato, You Say Racist!

I was watching my nephew play ball on Monday evening, his team full of different ethnicities, different personalities, different ages, different religions, etc….but yet they found commonality not only in their favorite pastime, but also in their obliviousness of their obvious differences.

You see, my nephew didn’t care what color Child A was, all he cared about is that he could throw a ball. Child B didn’t care what religion Child C was, Child B just wanted to know if Child C could hit a ball hard enough to get him to home plate. At the beautiful age of 6, all opposition from their fellow team members had to do with their baseball techniques and what their favorite movies were.

Moral of the story…We should all be like kids, ignore color, and play baseball.

The End.

Just kidding…I mean, yes, that’s a great idea, but what have these kids figured out that we can’t? What have they grasped on to that we can’t?

Simple: Equality

We’ve been continually fed a lie that has spread like the bubonic plague among the people. Not their people, our people, those people, but THE people of this nation. We’ve violently distorted the word “equality”. We’ve gutted the idea of a nation that is colorblind. We’ve ignored the desperate cries from our children that simply beg to be seen as equal, and they are the ones that truly show us how; however, the age of responsibility is getting younger daily, we hand over a burden of judgment at such a young age now. We are oblivious to the fact that they were the individuals who really grasped the idea of equality in its purest form.

To explain how this twisting and manipulating has been accomplished I’ll break it down into a story, I’ll use my sisters – known as Sister A & Sister B – for the fictional story.

My sisters and I are sitting around debating over what we want to watch on TV. I think that everyone should have a fair vote, but Sister A doesn’t agree. Sister A wants to be able to pick what we watch regardless of what Sister B wants. Sister A desperately wants to get Sister B on her side. So what does Sister A do? She works to convince Sister B that I want to do exactly what she is actually doing. She tells her that I want to control her, I want to decide the show without her input. And more importantly – in the most subtle way – Sister A convinces Sister B that she NEEDS her. Blatant lies. But you see, by convincing Sister B that I am the enemy she wins her trust, once the alliance is formed Sister A controls the remote and turns on what she wants, and convinces Sister B that this is what she wanted as well. It’s manipulation at its finest.

You see, no matter what my intentions were with the remote, no matter how fair I wanted the voting to be, or how fair I wanted the discussion to be, my points were no longer relevant. I had been demonized by Sister A. Sister A successfully made Sister B reject me by convincing her that I wanted to control the TV, that I disliked her, and in the process she gained what she had been fighting for…The TV. The other result? Sister B has absolutely no voice in the matter, that’s exactly what I didn’t want.

The liberals have accused us of racism while breeding racism. They have accused us of trying to control while controlling. But worst of all, they’ve deemed individuals of color, or of different ethnicity, different class, etc. of being less intelligent. Not only should minorities be offended, they should be outraged, we all should be outraged. I AM outraged. I find all individuals to be equal, I’ve read the genius of Thomas Sowell, the brilliance of C.S. Lewis, and the astounding words of Ravi Zacharias. Men with diverse backgrounds and equal contribution to this world.

The difference between parties concerning voter ID laws:

Conservatives (deemed racist): We believe that all individuals should be treated equally, that all should be required to show ID in the voting booth for accountability purposes.

Democrats (deemed champions for equality): They believe that being forced to show ID to vote is racist.

What are they ACTUALLY saying?

Example:

Amy is Caucasian, Mary is African American, both are in their mid 20’s, both make a yearly income between 40K & 50K, both own houses, both excel in their jobs.

John is Caucasian, Jeff is African American, both are in their 40’s, both make minimum wage at a factory, both rent small apartments, both work hard.

Rachel is Caucasian, Susan is African American, both are in their 30’s, both are jobless, both live on state aid, both live in rundown neighborhoods, both can’t seem to get on their feet.

By calling voter ID laws racist, the Democrats are assuming that in all of the above situations the African American individual is less capable of obtaining an ID than the Caucasian. To insinuate that they are less capable is to insinuate that they are not equal in intelligence and ability. You see, they’ve whispered that Conservatives are racists while actively treating those of a different ethnicity as less capable, they’ve judged them by their color. What is that again???

Racism.

Just as they have done to women, they have degraded them, objectified them, turned them into political tools. I’m sickened by this. I’m sickened by the idea that if you are a Conservative woman you are somehow less intelligent. I’m sickened by the idea that if you are a Conservative minority you are a “slave to the white man”. These are lies they tell you to degrade your opinion, to personally attack the opposition. It’s revolting and we should be fed up. What they are really saying is “if you don’t agree with us, keep your opinions to yourself.”…but equality equality equality.

Don’t just take my word for it, how about a couple quotes from the Vice President of the “First black President” (yeah, that title just screams character quality over color)…

Speaking about then Sen. Barack Obama: “He’s the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”

“you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.

Really, Biden?

So you believe he’s NOT racist, but you believe I am because I find that all races are equally capable in intelligence and ability to get an ID? Well, as Ravi Zacharias – A BRILLIANT Indian-born apologist – so gracefully says, “We have a right to believe whatever we want, but not everything we believe is right.”.

Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed of a world where people were judged on character and not color. I believe in that dream, but our President does not, the leaders of our country do not. I fear a world where an opinion is silenced because of color, isn’t that what we fought against? I fear a world where empty allegations of racism are made in an attempt to demonize peaceful protestors, while Allen West and Mia Love are subject to some of the most vitriolic racism in politics I’ve ever seen, and all to the silence of the media.

Republican Mia Love – parents were Haitian immigrants – while running for office, was sent a package that contained disturbing edited images of her, her husband, and a hooded KKK member. Liberals attacked her, threatened her life, etc. she was called a “Republican black puppet”, an “anchor baby”, told that she should “go back to the cotton fields”, told that she was “the white man’s slave”…And that is JUST a sampling, the other comments she received are not even something I would repeat, nor feel comfortable posting on a Christian blog. I remember reading the comments on her twitter feed and just crying for her, my heart broke for a woman that was strong, intelligent, a mother, a person that truly cared for all people, and here she was receiving this treatment. I remember respectfully defending her with many other conservatives and receiving tweets telling me to die, or to “drink bleach, racist”, etc…Where was AL Sharpton?

You see, liberals no longer need proof of their claims, they’ve been given a pass by the party that has manipulated them to claim racism to any objection. It’s easier to keep them ignorant to the truth, giving them one blanket answer to use against logical arguments keeps them in the dark.

Allen West, Herman Cain, as well as many other African American/Asian/Hispanic politicians, received the same type of treatment from the “NOH8” & “Equality” advocates. Not just from individuals, but from journalists and celebrities as well. THEY are the ones that still live for the dream that MLK Jr. spoke of, they are the heroes, they are the brave.

What have they done wrong? They learned how to think for themselves. They’ve learned to judge by character. They’ve learned to truly despise the idea that separate treatment of any kind only works to divide the people.

What has Obama done for the people?

Unemployment – Though at first glance it seems as though unemployment has gone down, it hasn’t. The majority of people don’t understand that the number of people in the work force has gone down, not unemployment. The labor force participation rate is lower than it has been in 30 years. Those individuals have given up looking for work completely, they aren’t counted in the unemployment numbers any longer. Unemployment hasn’t improved, if you thought it had, you’ve been manipulated. Plain and simple.

Dependency – I’ve never quite understood the idea that those who want to give you everything are merciful, and those who want to teach you how to gain everything are oppressive. More people today are dependent upon the government to provide for their every need than ever before. More people have lost the ability to provide for their family because those jobs they claim exist, don’t. More people are raising children in poverty, more people can’t afford to send their children to a better school, and more kids are learning from their government that hard work is futile. This is not only something that can destroy a country, it is anti-biblical.

Youth – What has he done for the youth? Do you realize that in today’s society it is easier to have a child out of wedlock than to be responsible? Free schooling, free healthcare, free childcare, free housing, free food, etc. We encourage instability and dependency.

Obamacare – It is now widely known that Obamacare will cost the average family 20K per year, this will lower a large number of Americans into poverty. Not bring individuals UP from poverty, it brings individual DOWN to poverty. His idea of creating a more “fair” class was never to build individuals up, by design, from the very beginning, it simply lowered the other classes. Now to add insult to injury, not only will many Americans still go without coverage, and ALL will go with a lower level of care, many American jobs will be lost if the Democrats have their way with the immigration bill. In the text it does not require newly legalized immigrants to have Obamacare, they are exempt. So when your employer looks at the cost of keeping you on, compared to hiring someone that is exempt from coverage, jobs will be lost nationwide.

So far, just the few points I’ve mentioned above have MLK Jr. rolling in his grave. Great men fought for our equality, great men have fought for our right to pursue our dreams, and now men of poor character control our livelihood like dictators, waving the flag of racism while not only creating racism, but being racists themselves.

Abortion – Obama is a fully fledged supporter of abortion and specifically, Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood and liberal politicians still celebrate the birthday of their founder Margaret Sanger. Not only has Planned Parenthood taken so many lives, they’ve aided sexual abusers, lied to women, and have further led to the objectification of women across the US.

Obama: “Thank you Planned Parenthood, God bless you, God bless you.”

A few quotes from Margaret Sanger, Founder of Planned Parenthood. As a woman who spoke at a KKK rally, it’s not surprising that she would say the following:

“Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”

We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Do you want to see if a “cleaner race” is still the goal of this liberal institution? Take a look at where the majority of Planned Parenthood abortion facilities are located and the demographics of women they target.

Just a sample of what you will find: 12 per 1,000 white women will have an abortion. 40 per 1,000 black women will have an abortion. 29 per 1,000 Hispanic women will have an abortion.

Back to the point – I’m quite interested in learning from those who are devoted to this man, why they are so dedicated to him. He hasn’t been faithful to anything he has said.

We were promised transparency, we received Benghazi and Fast and Furious.

We were promised equality, we received a more divisive President than we’ve ever had.

We were promised privacy, the elimination of former intrusive government tactics, and we received the largest level of government wiretapping on all Americans.

We were promised affordable healthcare, we received healthcare that will drive many individuals into poverty.

We were promised a responsible foreign policy, we received a President that armed Mexican Cartels which led to the death of hundreds of innocent individuals, we received a President that has armed terrorists and individuals who want to kill us, we received a President that has taken our ability to keep our country safe and lowered our level of protection astronomically.

We were promised a President that would defend the Constitution, we received a President that has degraded and demonized those who support the Constitution.

If you say that you support this man because of his character and not his color, I am whole heartedly interested in learning why exactly that is.

“I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Martin Luther King Jr.

As do I, Mr. King. As do I.

Definitions…and Stuff….

Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution – “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

I feel like the Rocky theme song should be playing in the background whenever we read the Constitution.

And there should be confetti.

And we should imagine the voice of Chuck Norris reading it.

Alright, to the actual blog post….

Well, unless you’re hiding under a rock, more than likely you are well aware that our Government probably knows about the time you called your Grandma for a recipe last week. It’s all over the news (not your Grandma’s recipe), plaguing the water carriers with topics that have them searching for anything other than the NSA to discuss…Even if it’s a moose that has fallen deeply in love for a statue of a moose.

Because moose love is important news.

In some alternate universe.

But alas, try as they may to block real news, the people have still heard the stories. Some believe the nonsense that this was all carried over from the Bush administration, and that’s unfortunate; Not for Bush – I’m guessing he’s pretty content staying busy with his painting – but, it’s unfortunate for the individuals who knew so little about this entire topic that they actually believed the water carriers. That just sends a neon sign that reads “KEEP LYING TO US!”.

The Bush program was designed for international communications believed to be in connection with Al Qaeda, not as a blanket over the entire US. It had flaws, and I’m not even going to go into my defense of his tactics. But at the time the outrage from the left was vast, yet devoted Obama followers are now defending a man who took those ideals, got them all jacked up on steroids, then sold them back to his followers labeling them as forms of “protection.”…He took the bad, the accidental intrusions of the Bush era and expanded it. AAAAANNNNDDD, that’s where I’m going with my blog post today.

pro·tec·tion:

noun. 1. a. The act of protecting. b. The condition of being protected. 2. One that protects.

threat:

noun. 1. An expression of an intention to inflict pain, injury, evil, or punishment. 2. An indication of impending danger or harm. 3. One that is regarded as a possible danger; a menace.

Ahhhh, the simplicity… Google a word and BOOM, you have the definition. It’s so easy a caveman could do…well, maybe not…errrr, spelling barrier or something. But it’s so easy that my 6 year old nephew probably could. But what if Webster didn’t hold the true definition of the words above, or maybe the correct definition according to the government?

Oops, I spelled korrect wrong.

You see, I firmly believe that the most dangerous words being uttered right now are “If you aren’t a threat, you have nothing to worry about.” What some feel is a simple answer to all of the “unnecessary worries” circulating throughout the US, I find to be disturbing. Why? Because History is a beast, and when you forget that it’s a beast it always returns, that’s usually when you get your head bitten off.

Name a tyrannical government that didn’t proclaim “safety”, “fairness”, and/or “taking care of threats for the good of the people” as the foundation of their radical change. The problem is that the government definition of the word “threat” is rarely a mirrored image of the Webster definition.

Want to save Jews???

Threat.

You don’t like your child wearing Lenin’s face on a pin and pledging allegiance to his greatness???

Threat.

You want to have freedom of speech???

Threat.

Wait, you want to report on something we did wrong?

Threat.

You see, large governments are more concerned about the threat you pose to them, not the threats you face. When it comes down to protecting you or themselves, you will always lose. Fortunately the Founders knew this and designed a system that made the big elitist government mob so small that they could no longer define “threat.”

Then we had to mess it up.

We’ve all had the pleasure of having that “one neighbor”, or that “one sibling” that we’re convinced have made it their life goal to get under our skin and camp there with a spacious tent, a weeks’ worth of food, and a plush sleeping bag. Or you have that “one neighbor” with the Obama bumper sticker, you’re sure that when that fine chap camps under your skin it’s going to be with a multi-room family tent and a months’ worth of food… something inside just tells you that they’re bringing memory foam mattresses for the long haul.

No matter what that opinionated thorn in your side believes, any sane individual would say that they have a right to believe their nonsense. While we may laugh when individuals cry over trees, we aren’t interested in prohibiting them from shedding those tears; we’ve made our own diagnoses concerning the insanity of some individuals, we also respect the right to personal opinion. From crying over a tree to supporting abortion – sometimes both – we agree that it is their personal beliefs. Fighting laws is one thing, fighting their right to an opinion and the freedom to voice it is another.

I have teenage sisters that tend to knock heads at every turn, they have on more than one occasion proclaimed one another to be insane. Now imagine with me that my sisters are both adults, our parents have joined forces with Sister A, Sister B is still sticking to her guns on her choice of sky color… But now Sister A declares Sister B clinically insane and a threat to everyone around her simply for her perspective of the color blue, prescribes her psychological examinations and assertive community treatment where she is surrounded by Sister A approved “sane” and “safe” individuals that just reestablish the insanity in her choice of shade. Within the walls of a mental institution she is brainwashed into believing that not only are her opinions wrong, but that she is now mentally disabled for such opinions; release comes only when her crime of opinion is washed from her mind and replaced with the korrect opinion.

Could you imagine being able to take your opponent, ornery neighbor, or obstinate sister to the doctor and have them diagnosed with schizophrenia; locked away with the promise that once released they’ll be in the right train of thought? The reality is that governments have used political opinions to deem someone as a threat, or as mentally unstable in the past. Political abuse of psychiatry. It’s not conspiracy, and it’s not impossible; it’s factual, and it’s historical. Imagine that you are a member of the Soviet Union, you make a few friends from another country, they inform you that the system you belong to is flawed; you experience a revelation and become more critical. You start sending letters to other members and ask for freedom; you tell them that they are oppressive, that your eyes have been opened. Before you know it your friends come looking for you and find that you have been committed to a mental hospital; deemed mentally unstable because of your political opinions alone. That is what happened to Evgeni Belov, as well as countless other individuals.

So the Government defined “mentally unstable”, they defined “threat”, and they defined “protection of the people.” But don’t worry, everything will be different here because we’re somehow magically safe. The fairy that controls the American bubble of tyrannical invincibility sprinkled Tyranny Repelling Dust over us while we slept, and Commonsense Dust over our government. Then again, who defines commonsense?!?!? Better yet, what political affiliation is the fairy?!?!?

Final question: : Do you honestly believe that the infamous leaders of tyrannical governments were able to rise into power with a nation of people who believed that those leaders could cause such mass destruction, but knowing the dangers chose to support them anyway?

Well, this person is risky…The power they want could potentially enslave my children and future Grandchildren….But, YOLO!”

No…no, they said the same thing you are saying…

I have nothing to worry about when it comes to my government as long as I’m not a threat.”

Our government isn’t the only group repeating history, politically ignorant US citizens are repeating history as well. It may or may not be as bloody and violent as all of the other tyrannical governments, but removal of rights always gets messy.

Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” – Benjamin Franklin
