I’m Ok, You’re a White Supremacist - Part I

By Patrick Hall

During President Biden’s inaugural address, he referenced “the rise in white supremacy" and how his administration will confront the growing dangers of white supremacists and domestic extremists. In the weeks that followed the inaugural, the President has repeated his dire warning against white supremacy and extremist groups and has directed the Justice Department to investigate and confront this perceived epidemic of people who voted for Donald Trump.

 “Oh, wait a minute! I meant those dangerous systemic racists, Jim Crow catechumenates, white privilege race demagogues, that seek to harm black people in particular and the sacrosanct and inviolable constituencies that make up the Democrat Party”.

Biden’s recent use of the term Jim Crow to describe sensible voting reform by the Georgia State Legislature represents a complete “loss of the language.” More disheartening is that it trivialized and devalues the horrors of Jim Crow as it once existed in some areas of our nation.

Georgia’s modest voting reforms are not, nor should it have been, remotely compared to the blatant racial discrimination and murders in the Jim Crow South. However, for decades, the Democratic Party ( the original party of Jim Crow Laws) have continued to redefine, distort, and purposedly lose the language, by carelessly, (if not deliberately) calling everything racist, white supremacist, Jim Crow, or whatever epitaph that comes into their reductionist minds.  Democrats conspicuously employ the “racist/ white supremacist” canard to bash and silence those of us who don’t see America as a seething hotspot of systemic racism.  

 One conservative thinker said the word racism is like ketchup. It can be put on practically anything, and demanding evidence makes you a racist.  I think someone should get the word out to all those illegal immigrants (not undocumented immigrants) that they should rethink their decision to come to such a racist, Jim Crow hell-hole like America. Perhaps nations like Somalia, Venezuela, Russia, and Afghanistan would be a much better choice.

A Quick Review

The Democratic Political class and their supporters tried to crucify and falsely accuse the Duke Lacrosse Team of gang-raping a black woman. In more recent times, actor Jussie Smollett manufactured an incident that he was attacked by white racists allegedly shouting MAGA country. The Michael Brown incident in Ferguson, Missouri, and the death of Freddie Brown helped keep alive the narrative that the police are indiscriminately killing black men.  The egregious “hands-up-don’t shoot” lie surrounding the death of Michael Brown in 2014 was never corrected by the corporate media. The accidental shooting of Breonna Taylor by law enforcement and the judicial theatre surrounding the George Floyd incident have all been conveniently labeled with the systemic racism tag. This despite the jury having found Derek Chauvin guilty of Mr. Floyd’s death.  

Once again, to cite President Biden, we are allegedly witnessing the re-emergence of Jim Crow culture in America. These, along with many other false declarations of racism and white supremacy, helps promote the horrendously destructive belief that America is a racist nation.  It categorically is not!

Also, we must never forget the Patron Saint of false racist claims, Tawana Brawley. This young black woman asserted she was gang-raped and then scrawled with racial epithets by a white supremacist group.  Her story was quickly dispersed nationwide by the media back in the 1980s. It was also given full-throated advocacy by the Rev. Al Sharpton, who later became a close confidant and “advisor” of President Barrack Obama on matters on race.

Black Americans from all social classes, constipated by decades of Orwellian Group-Think, are quick to believe and, in some cases, become deliberately provocative in staging and/or exasperating incidents, that have little or nothing to do with systemic racism, nor the questionable rise in white supremacy.

The socio-political etymology of systemic/institutional racism has its origins in Marxist/Leninist epistemic. Black and white Progressives have skillfully employed the charge for decades. Concurrently, balkanization and factionalism experts, aka, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion charlatans, will continue their insidious march through all of our institutions and businesses.  

However, this is not the America of the 1930s and 40s, when many of my 11 siblings were born. Born in 1910, my mom and dad and their siblings lived in an America that was so much more difficult to negotiate. Their America was nothing like the cozy, let’s complain about any “perceived” racial slight of today’s insufferable Black snowflakes and the supporting BLM and Antifa cabal members.  The distortion of America being intrinsically racist or “white supremacy driven” has been incubated, nurtured, and now re-evangelized via President Biden’s crass proclamation of America being systemically racist.

The peer-reviewed quackery of Critical Race Theory, allied with Implicit Race Bias Training and the White Fragility race whisperers, are utterly cancerous. They are socio-political pathogens that will continue to metastasize and divide us as a country over the last four decades.

 It is a neo-segregation sold to an unwitting American public on the installment plan.
