You can smell the desperation in the air. Democrats are in a panic. Economic fears of the sequestration never materialized. Since Democrats are all about crisis political management, crisis averted means no political capital.
The so-called shutdown is not netting much politically for the Democrats. In fact, the petty actions of the Obama administration in going after WW II vets, closing private businesses on federal lands, and following a “make it hurt” strategy are beginning to backfire. Obama’s approval rating is at 37 percent.
So when the going gets tough, radical Democrats pull the race card. And that’s exactly what DeWayne Wickham has done. Wickham writes for USA Today. He’s always all about race. It’s the only way he knows how to argue. To put it simply, Wickham is a bona fide black racist.
During a discussion about healthcare at Morgan State University, a man from the audience asked this question of Taylor Branch, historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Parting the Waters: America in the King Years 1954-63: “Did it get lost somewhere that this whole discussion about health care is about race, as well?”
The narrative rolls on. It was just the opening that Wickham and his racialist cronies needed to make the debate about race instead of sound economics and constitutional principles. I’m sure the panel breathed a sigh of relief. They were once again on familiar ground.
Wickham is a modern-day definition of a racist. Consider this from the October 8, 2013 issue of USA Today:
“The Republican Party is the political base of a group of right-wingers who can best be described as ‘white resisters.’ They want to keep control of this nation firmly in the hands of America’s shrinking white population — and they want to do it by any means necessary.”
Take note of his use of “America’s shrinking white population.” Imagine if a Republican had said “shrinking black population” in terms of future political advantage.
It gets worse. He brings in the Ku Klux Klan. What’s interesting is that the printed version of the article does not match the online version. Here’s the printed version:
“By their own admission, Republicans have gerrymandered congressional districts to keep control of the House in GOP hands. Of course, Democrats do the same. But Democrats are the party that reflects the diversity of the nation; the GOP isn’t.”
Now here’s the online version:
“By their own admission, Republicans have gerrymandered congressional districts to keep control of the House in GOP hands. The House Republican caucus looks like a Klan klavern.”
The online version leaves out the phrase “Democrats do the same” and the line about “diversity” but includes the phrase that conservatives in the GOP are like a local unit of the KKK. The last time I checked it was the Democrats that had a member of the Klan among its members. Around 1946 Sen. Byrd (D-WV) had written “a letter to a Grand Wizard stating, ‘The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia and in every state in the nation.’
Let’s talk about diversity. Ted Cruz is Cuban, making him of Hispanic descent. He’s being attacked by the Democrats without mercy. Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann and other GOP women have been in the political crosshairs of the Democrats. Herman Cain. Was ridiculed as was Dr. Ben Carson.
The only black in the Senate is a Republican.
GOP governors Bobby Jindal and Nikki Haley are of Indian descent.
None of these Republicans would have been invited to join the KKK. Black senator Tim Scott was not invited to participate in the 50th anniversary of MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
ObamaCare, or any form of forced healthcare provisions, will enslave the nation. One-sixth of the economy will be governed by unelected, nameless, and faceless bureaucrats who will have tens of thousands of pages of regulations to control people’s lives.
I’d be willing to bet that Mr. Wickham does not understand all the implications of the Affordable Care Act. He might say to me, “Neither do you.” Here’s the difference: I oppose the Affordable Care Act because it’s unconstitutional and immoral because it requires a loss of freedom and confiscation of my money by the State to be given to other people.
It’s not about race; it’s about a bad law that requires more theft to work. To put it simply, Wickham is a bona fide black racist.
