Pres. Trump Continues to Embarrass Obama and the Left
“The lady doth protest too much, methinks” is a line from William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet. “It’s spoken by Queen Gertrude in response to the insincere overacting of a character in the play within a play created by Prince Hamlet to prove his uncle’s guilt in the murder of his father, the King of Denmark.”
Have you noticed how many liberals have described Pres. Trump as a racist? It’s all they have in their arsenal. You can always tell when liberals are out of ammunition in an argument. They play the race card. Their protesting about race is a prime indicator that they do not have the best interest of their fellow-blacks in view.
The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Gold State Warriors have decided that whichever team wins the 7-game series will not be going to the White House. Why? Because the vast majority of players in the NBA are black, and, well, Trump is a racist.
The Philadelphia Eagle Super Bowl winners is another example of “everything is racist,” and Pres. Trump is leading the white racist mob.
The charge of racism is so overused that no one knows what a real racist is.
Here’s the dictionary definition of racism:
Prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.
Apply this definition to anyone who makes the charge of “racism” and see if it fits. In almost every case, it doesn’t.
In our day, a racist is anyone who disagrees with Leftist policies that affect blacks. If you oppose welfare programs that assist the poor, you’re are a racist because a disproportionate number of blacks are on welfare. If you comment on black-on-black crime in Chicago, you are a racist.
It’s all about race and gender today. Are there racists? Most certainly. There are many backs who believe that their race is superior to whites, and yet they are not described as racist. There are whites who want to believe that just being white is racist.
Rutgers University may be investigating James Livingston, the white Rutgers professor who went on a racist rant against white kids in a Harlem restaurant, but that hasn’t stopped him from expounding on — and defending — his viral rant. (The Blaze)
Livingston went on to say in a Facebook post that “targeted young, white children as ‘little Caucasian a**holes.’”
If a black person is also critical of Leftist policies that hurt blacks, they are denigrated with epithets like Uncle Toms and Oreos, black on the outside, white on the inside.
This brings me to some newsworthy stories about race that many in the media have ignored, downplayed, or diluted. The first is about Jack Johnson (1878-1946). Johnson was black, and he was imprisoned during a time of oppressive racism. “At the height of the Jim Crow era, [Johnson] became the first African American world heavyweight boxing champion (1908–1915).”1
The president called Johnson “a truly great fighter” who “had a tough life” but served 10 months in federal prison “for what many view as a racially motivated injustice.” Mr. Trump said the conviction took place during a “period of tremendous racial tension in the United States.” (New York Times)
Former Pres. Obama had the opportunity to pardon Jack Johnson but didn’t.
Then there’s Alice Marie Johnson. “The great-grandmother had been in jail for more than 20 years, serving a life sentence for non-violent drug charges. She was released after President Trump commuted her sentence. On Johnson’s behalf, reality television star Kim Kardashian West had met with Trump at the White House a week earlier to discuss her case.”
Johnson admitted her guilt, but there are murderers who have spent less time in jail than she did — 21 years. “Johnson had sought a pardon from former President Barack Obama but did not receive one.” (Fox News)
By the way, black unemployment is at its lowest level in history. That was done with simple economics, something Obama and the Democrats refuse to acknowledge. Their goal has been to keep blacks in their place by government wealth transfer policies that make political pawns of the recopients.
- “In 1912, Johnson opened a successful and luxurious ‘black and tan’ (desegregated) restaurant and nightclub, which in part was run by his wife, a white woman. Major newspapers of the time soon claimed that Johnson was attacked by the government only after he became famous as a black man married to a white woman, and was linked to other white women. Johnson was arrested on charges of violating the Mann Act—forbidding one to transport a woman across state lines for ‘immoral purposes’—a racially motivated charge that embroiled him in controversy for his relationships, including marriages, with white women.” [↩]
