In Response to the "Racist" Charge

Earlier this evening, I responded to a comment regarding the part that racism plays in the motivation of conservatives around the country. The comment was left on my “rightlinks” blog by someone who signed his name “Despicable”.  If you would like to read his commens, please follow this link… 

Having read “How to Win Friends and Influence People” several times in my life, I decided that I should address him by his name…

Hi Despicable,

Actually, it’s not about race at all…

It’s about wanting to NOT spend the country into oblivion.
It’s about wanting our kids to NOT be saddled with eternal debt.
It’s about wanting to NOT trade freedom for a handout.
It’s about NOT having someone else control every part of your life.
It’s about being responsible for our own lives and actions or inactions, and expecting others to do the same.
It’s about freedom vs slavery.
It’s about thinking long term, not just to the end of your nose.
It’s about avoiding unintended consequences that will only serve to make things worse.
It’s about protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States from the bludgeoning it has taken at the hands of those who would destroy it.
It’s about our public servants doing their job and reading bills before they vote on them.
It’s about policy, not race…

And anyone who tries to convince you differently is either disingenuous, ignorant of the facts or has darker motives in mind.

The only incendiary racial comments I have noticed are the ones that come from the mouths of those who accuse patriotic Americans of racial motives. Politicians, news casters – and those uninformed folks who hypnotically get drawn into their web of deceit and destruction. Sadly, those who resort to those tactics are, in fact, creating tension where it otherwise would not be. Equally sad is the fact that they have no argument with which to oppose those with whom they disagree, so they resort to emotional, childish (and potentially dangerous) name calling. In this case, the name “Racist” is applied to anyone who disagrees with them.

The name “Racist” is applied to millions of Americans who are taking time off from work, family and their lives to contribute to the preservation of the freedom which has been the envy of the entire world.


The term is completely non-sensical when applied to people whose only sin is that they don’t want to see the nation, their lives and their children’s lives destroyed by policies that can do nothing else.

As Margaret Thatcher so eloquently said, “The problem with socialism is that, sooner or later, you run out of everyone else’s money.” You can only feed so many people before you run out of pie, and when the pie is gone people are going to starve. And when you get to that point, you’ll be up that proverbial creek without a paddle.

To see that, you need real vision.

As far as our racist and bigoted past is concerned, I refer you to Roger Hedgecock’s article “Drenched In Blood of Slavery” . You may find some surprising history there..

    I am all for responsible reporting on the public airwaves! Those that use the airwaves to deliberately and repeatedly use fabrications that are not true, are dangerous to the public safety and to the constitution that is supposed to guarantee our rights of free speech. Americans have free speech rights, … but not the freedom to shout “FIRE!” when their is no fire, inside a crowded theatre!
    The irresponsable reporting by the likes of “Glenn Beck” creates a “mob” mentality! A mob mentality that can and will (according to history) incite violence against those that are portrayed as different from that of the mob!
    Let’s face it! There are those in america that are looking forward to inciting a “RACE WAR,” and are using the public air waves and the fact of a black president to incite mobs to act violently against the government of the USA!
    You have to be blind to not recognize the conservative movement direction toward insurection of a pluralistic and multi-cultural america and instituting in it’s place what existed in our racist fundamentalist bigoted past!
    All of this backward movement toward our unenlightened past is being done in the name of fighting “COMMUNISM!
