Democratic Misunderstanding of History and Real Racism (Kennedy Jr. Cites Wallace)

Below is a video interview of Robert Kennedy and he espouses two views, one implicitly being that Republicans are Racist because of George Wallace, and, if you are very forcefully against Islamo-Fascism, likewise you are labeled racist and xenophobic. (I am not here to defend Geert Wilders, I am here to defend history and Democratic attacks against it. This said, I recommend that the serious browser scour through Libertarian Republican [LR] posts on him and decide for yourself. LR’s search engine is midway down in the right-hand column, type in “Geert Wilders” and enjoy the search.) This post will primarily deal with the position of how the Democrats smear those who disagree with them as well as setting the record straight on who is currently “racist” as well as historically. First Kennedy:

Kennedy’s grasp of history unfortunately is similar to that of Democratic understandings of it and is the “zeitgeist” of the black community. Black history is rich and chalked full of Republican victories and building the black-man up, whereas the Democratic party is fraught with tearing down the black man. Here is a question that came into the Michael Medved show when he has friend and author, the Rev. Wayne Perryman, in to discuss his latest book, Whites, Blacks and Racist Democrats:

So Wallace went from being a Democrat, to an Independent, BACK to being a Democrat! When he was shot he was leading as the Democratic choice for President. So this all too often repeated “mantra” of history is based in an altered view of it… rewritten for the new biography of the Democratic Party to wipe clean its history from the mind’s of young black men and women. Not to mention that members of the KKK are still running for Democratic positions today, as well as having a head of [and recruiter of] the KKK in the state of Virginia, Sen. Robert Byrd, who said this in 1944:

I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.

He twice used the term “ni***r” on TV quite recently as well. This is just a long line of Democratic history

So Kennedy’s assertion — unspoken of course — is patently false. Now to his use of racism and xenophobia. I encourage the reader to take some time and watch the documentary IndoctrinateU. You will see how these terms are used in the university setting against conservative students. Denni Prager deals with this topic well. Below is a rehashing of one of my earlier posts, enjoy:


By: Dennis Prager

The highest-ranking Democrat in America, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, described the Senate bill making English the national language of the American people as “racist.” And the New York Times editorial page labeled the bill “xenophobic.”

Welcome to the thoughtless world of contemporary liberalism. Beginning in the 1960s, liberalism, once the home of many deep thinkers, began to substitute feeling for thought and descended into superficiality.

One-word put-downs of opponents’ ideas and motives were substituted for thoughtful rebuttal. Though liberals regard themselves as intellectual — their views, after all, are those of nearly all university professors — liberal thought has almost died. Instead of feeling the need to thoughtfully consider an idea, most liberal minds today work on automatic. One-word reactions to most issues are the liberal norm.

This is easy to demonstrate.

Here is a list of terms liberals apply to virtually every idea or action with which they differ:The "Sweep Under the Rug" Argument

  • Racist
  • Sexist
  • Homophobic
  • Islamophobic
  • Imperialist
  • Bigoted
  • Intolerant

And here is the list of one-word descriptions of what liberals are for:

  • Peace
  • Fairness
  • Tolerance
  • The poor
  • The disenfranchised
  • The environment

These two lists serve contemporary liberals in at least three ways.

First, they attack the motives of non-liberals and thereby morally dismiss the non-liberal person.

Second, these words make it easy to be a liberal — essentially all one needs to do is to memorize this brief list and apply the right term to any idea or policy. That is one reason young people are more likely to be liberal — they have not had the time or inclination to think issues through, but they know they oppose racism, imperialism and bigotry, and that they are for peace, tolerance and the environment.

Third, they make the liberal feel good about himself — by opposing conservative ideas and policies, he is automatically opposing racism, bigotry, imperialism, etc.

Examples could fill a book.

Harry Reid, as noted above, supplied a classic one. Instead of grappling with the enormously significant question of how to maintain American identity and values with tens of millions of non-Americans coming into America, the Democratic leader and others on the Left simply label attempts to keep English as a unifying language as “racist.”

Another classic example of liberal non-thought was the reaction to former Harvard University President Lawrence Summers’ mere question about whether the female and male brains were wired differently. Again, instead of grappling with the issue, Harvard and other liberals merely dismissed Summers as “sexist.”

A third example is the use of the term “racist” to end debate about race-based affirmative action or even to describe a Capitol police officer who stops a black congresswoman who has no ID badge.

“Phobic” is the current one-word favorite among liberal dismissals of ideological opponents. It combines instant moral dismissal with instant psychological analysis. If you do not support society redefining marriage to include members of the same sex you are “homophobic” — and further thought is unnecessary. If you articulate a concern about the moral state of Islam today, you are “Islamophobic” — and again further thought is unnecessary. And if you seek to retain English as America’s unifying language, you are not only racist, you are, as the New York Times editorial describes you, “xenophobic” and “Latinophobic,” the latest phobia uncovered by the Left.

There is a steep price paid for the liberal one-wording of complex ideas — the decline of liberal thought. But with more and more Americans graduating college and therefore taught the liberal list of one-word reactions instead of critical thinking, many liberals do not see any pressing need to think through issues. They therefore do not believe they have paid any price at all.

But American society is paying a steep price. Every car that has a bumper sticker declaring “War is not the answer” powerfully testifies to the intellectual decline of the well educated and to the devolution of “liberal thought” into an oxymoron.


So we find ourselves back at square one asking who is the real racist and if Obama can even be considered racist. This seems impossible, but as I documented about the same time the following interview with the Rev. Wayne Perryman was done, the answer is, “YES… duh!” The next question after listening to the following presentation and inculcating all the info in this post is this, “do you [not me] have the fortitude to engage persons in conversation about this topic?” All the tools are above and learning and reading about this history and then passing it on is key to future Republican victories. key. Here are two books I highly recommend:

  1. Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black & White (DVD available as well)
  2. Whites, Blacks and Racist Democrats
