Liberal Racism: "One Nation under God, Indivisible With Liberty and Justice For All"
(NOTE: LTC Allen West writes a monthly column for Wheels on the Road Magazine, and was kind enough to furnish us a copy of his latest missive):
18 July 2010
Lieutenant Colonel Allen B West (US Army, Retired)
“One Nation under God Indivisible with Liberty and Justice for All”
Greetings Wheels on the Road readers, fellow South Floridians, and all Americans: My how time flies, and here we are again for our monthly political assessment.
It never ceases to amaze me that as we get closer to our monthly submission of this regular missive that the topic becomes evident. I often use an ole saying from my parents, “sometimes you just have to thank God for stupid people”….and I do. The focus for this month without any doubt has to be the NAACP and its President/CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous.
Let me make one thing very clear, my Mother, Elizabeth Thomas West, was a lifetime membership holder with the NAACP. Therefore growing up in our home I clearly understood the mission and vision for this organization. It was a mission and vision that enabled me to have the pride in myself and the heritage of my parents, grandparents, and extended family. It was a mission and vision that, to me, fostered a desire to excel beyond the standard and have a commitment to excellence regardless of skin color.
However, something has happened to that mission and vision, something horrific and inconsistent with the principles and values I recalled emanating from the “ole school” black community. Somewhere along the way victimization mentality has taken root in the black community resulting in astronomical unemployment rates, high incarceration rates, appalling murder rates, breakdown of the black family, and embarrassing teen pregnancy rates.
And in the light of all these negative socioeconomic indicators the NAACP decides that the preeminent focus of their national convention would be on issuing a resolution castigating the Tea (Taxed Enough Already) Party movement as racist. Even Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee of Texas was so compelled as to state that the Tea Party is filled with Klan members…..but we will get to the Congressional Black Caucus a bit later.
Instead of maintaining its mission and vision, the NAACP has now become the “useful idiots” (a term coined by Vladimir Lenin) for liberal racism. They have made themselves into a political hack job organization which now seeks to maintain the liberal progressive socialist control of the 21 century plantation. It is on this new economic plantation where the liberals seek to enslave the black community in order to maintain a devoted, monolithic, voting electorate.
I find it interesting that the NAACP was silent when Senator Harry Reid made his insidious comments about President Obama was favorable, likeable, because he is “light-skinned” and did not speak in “negro dialect”. I recall that the NAACP said nothing when Vice President Joe Biden referred to Barack Hussein Obama as “clean and articulate”. The NAACP said nothing when liberals attacked Clarence Thomas, Condoleeza Rice (birthing tubes cartoon), Michael Steele, and General Colin Powell.
In 2008, where was the NAACP to denounce the obvious case of voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party? Why did the NAACP not demand President George W Bush, and now, Attorney General Eric Holder, and the Obama adminstration, to prosecute this case to the fullest extent? Does the NAACP now support the same tactic which targeted the black community seeking to restrict the most fundamental of American individual rights, the right to vote? And shall the NAACP distance itself and condemn Malik Shabazz and the New Black Panther Party?
It is this duplicitous hypocrisy which allows me to state that the NAACP is shamefully now a liberal racist enabler. The upcoming mid-term elections have the Democrat party in certain peril. Therefore they have turned to their tactic of first and last resort, race baiting.
The resolution issued by the NAACP against the Tea Party is just a strategy to focus this coming election not against liberal progressive policies, which are anathema to our Republic. No, the NAACP, in conjunction with their masters, the Democrat party, seek to make this into an election based upon an insane charge of racial hatred.
We even see charlatan blasts from the past such as Julian Bond stating that Martin Luther King Jr was a socialist, a feeble attempt to garner black community acceptance of the liberal progressive agenda. We are truly on the verge of a dangerous situation in America. And yes, this also includes the lawsuit being brought against the sovereign State of Arizona, an attempt to win Hispanic votes…..an extension of liberal racism to another minority group.
We can fully expect from now until 2 November 2010 to see the usual suspects come out to promote the dishonest tyranny of the liberals. You will find the Congressional Black Caucus, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton out to ensure blacks remain wedded to the failing liberal social welfare policies, all the time shouting how the Democrats know what is best. I find it comical that Al Sharpton has already leapt forward to head up a new left-wing grassroots group to counter the Tea Party called “One Nation”.
Does One Nation believe in higher taxes and bigger government? Will this counter group promote individual rights and freedoms, liberty, and adherence to our US Constitution? I presume this group will seek to intimidate and put forth the ideals of collectivism combined with victimhood and expansion of the “nanny-state”.
I find the Tea Party, to which I have spoken to several times, stands for fundamental principles and values consistent with that which has made America an exceptional Constitutional Republic.
Therefore, under the “leadership” of Al Sharpton, this counter group One Nation obviously stands for principles which are antithetical to our Republic.
In closing, I am sure you are asking why did the ole Colonel have the last sentence in the Pledge of Allegiance in the title for this piece?
Simple, Liberal Racism does not believe in One Nation under God. They believe in a Nation of subjects organized into collective groups under which they shall rule, not govern, in a secular humanist based society.
Indivisible, Liberal Racism does not believe in “e pluribus unim”, they prefer a balkanized America where they can pit us against each other through their manipulated messages….such as Tea Party racism.
Liberal racism does not believe in Liberty and Justice for All, they believe in freedom defined by a ruling class elite while creating more victims who become dependent upon their dishonest benevolence. Justice in the world of Liberal Racism means social and economic justice rooted in a principle of leveling, which founding father Samuel Adams spoke against. Al Sharpton defined justice as everyone having the same in every home in America…..government engineering of results and outcomes.
The mid-term elections of 2 November 2010 comes down to “One Nation under God Indivisible with Liberty and Justice for All” or the concept of One Nation under the proprietor of victimization Al Sharpton, a simpleton crony of Liberal Racism. Which shall you choose?
Steadfast and Loyal,
LTC(R) Allen B West
Lt. Col. West Undoubtedly you have much Courage. You, and others like you are people ALL Americans can and should look up to. I believe many
liberals are of the young and idealistic kind, indoctrinated through false education of our history. I too was idealistic when I was young. Now I am older and wiser and I do not look at the world through rose colored glasses. I was not raised to ‘hate’ I had many friends of all colors and religions. I believe in America, our Fore Fathers, and our Constitution. I believe in pulling one’s weight, self reliance and personal responsibility. If we change anything in our educational system, we should include the latter in social science classes. Wouldn’t that be a hoot! I hope people wake up. If any dems have ‘buyers remorse’, unfortunately, it’s only going to get worse if we continue to allow this socialist Government to lead us. I cringe because there are many people in this country who are very ignorant to the happenings which are occuring and I believe this is what the liberals count on – ignorance. ” Deception Needs Ignorance. Truth ALWAYS destroys deception.” -Unknown. I am part of the Tea Party. I have been to many rallys. If there were any occurances of racism, we would police ourselves – I have not seen a single racial act committed (I am not ingnorant of the fact there are always fringe elements in every group). In fact, I wish more diverse people who believe as the Tea Party does, in smaller government, less government intrusion, lower taxes, personal responsibility, Our Constitution etc… would have the courage that you have Lt. Col. West, and join us in solidarity of this great cause… The NAACP should be ashamed of themselves!!! It’s obivious we are being ‘pitted against one another’ for POLITICAL REASONS we must never forget that! Patriot in NJ
The Tea Party Patriots movement does not have a “head” or leader. They are a true grass-roots movement.
If Al Sharpton is the “head” of “One Nation”, then “One Nation” is not a grass-root movement.
Excellent article Lt. Col. West. Well reasoned and factual. Too bad you’re likely too smart to run for national public office; America could use you again.
AMEN! You are a courageous individual. It must be so hard to go against the very liberal black leaders. The black community needs to have more than one voice. Your voice is a breath of fresh air.
While reading your article I thought of printing copies and distributing them to folks standing in line waiting to vote…and, sadly thought some wouldn’t read it and others unable to comprehend would find one or two passages, take them out of context and start expressing their opinions…opinions largely rooted in their perception of their powerlessness. My despondency stems from my belief that too many people have given up, making it Al Sharpton’s message much easier to accept than Ltc. West’s.
Lt. Col. West, Sir, thanks for updating your fellow African Americans on the insidious and debilatating concepts of Mr. Sharpton, Mr. Jessie Jackson et al that subjugate the whole African American population in a deadly strangle hold. I pray there will be more people like you and former
Rep. James Watt of Oklahoma to lead the black community. May the good Lord bless and keep you.
Col. West, we need more people of your mettle. Do your best for us, Sir, and may God bless you in your endeavor.
