Of Course There's A Backlash
MSNBC.com reports today that there seems to have been an increase in racial tensions recently as Congress has debated immigration reform and border security. Duh! When lefty radicals play the race card, righty radicals are only too happy to play along. And the great majority of us who are not inspired by hate or racism (as the left constantly accuses us) are greatly antagonized by the displays of ingratitude and even Latino racism that the left shoved in our faces this past May Day.
There are plenty of images available online showing virulent anti-Americanism and anti-caucasian slurs on display at the nationwide rallies. I myself have often endured accusations of "white washing" and being a traitor to la raza. Ask black Republicans how often they must endure the Uncle Tom label. The fact is, the American left, led by such elites as my alma mater's ethnic studies founder Ron Takaki, has spent the better part of four decades intentionally Balkanizing American society, stoking minority fears and reinforcing a sense of collective victimhood and helplessness. The cynical goal of these race baiters is to enlarge the electoral base of the Democrats and other parties of the left, which ceaselessly pander to minority communities even while they ignore those communities' needs. Make no mistake, the left wants minorities to remain poor and helpless -- permanently. And they want the American people to hate one another. Only with such instability and insecurity can their Nanny State ideology have any appeal to rational people.
