I strongly oppose Congressman Joe Wilson of South Carolina, and here’s why: He apologized for his “Lair” outburst during the president’s address to Congress last week. You see when one tells the truth, and Joe Wilson did in one form or another, don’t apologize for it, no matter how spineless and politically correct your party leaders might be, don’t give in to their demands.
The problem facing this party many of us belong to is that they’re still afraid of opposing this president. They still believe he’s popular when polls show his popularity is slipping. Despite all the evidence the GOP remains crippled by fear of the “R” word. That’s right, the “R” word, “racist”. I understand, no one likes to be called a racist or being accused of racism. But Joe Wilson wasn’t being racist, he was telling the truth. Obama is a lair, not just on the issue of illegal immigrant coverage in the health care bill, but on many occasion this president lied through his winning smile, and simply got away with it. So when Wilson called a spade a spade (No pun intended) he was branded with a scarlet “R” across his chest and scolded like a child who was caught with his hand in the cookie jar before dinner.
Now, I rooted for Joe Wilson up to the point when he apologized for his comments. Let me tell you, freedom of speech is most important when it offends people. On the other hand, calling someone a liar when they are lying isn’t offensive.
We should get ready for this in the coming months and years. Whenever someone questions the president’s policies, the media, the Democrats, and the left will take it as someone questioning the president’s race. How they’ll mix the two is beyond me but when there’s a will for the racially obsessed, there’s certainly a way. But then again, this is the same party that presents itself as the party of openness, diversity, civil rights, and acceptance. And yet the Republicans who are often portrayed as country club dwelling good ol’ boys who hate change and the “coloreds” are the one’s who are engaging Obama on the issues, while Democrats constantly fish for any racially motivated or inflated gesture.
When Barbara Boxer (Senator Boxer if you’re nasty) tried to cage Henry Alford (a colored) inside the quota box by citing a letter of support for the climate bill by the NAACP, was that racism? Robert Byrd, Democrat Senator and former grand, count em, grand Cyclops of the white knights of the Klu Klux Klan said and I quote, “I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side..Rather I should die a thousand times and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt, never to rise again than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds”-Robert C. Byrd, in a letter to Senator Theodore Bilbo(D-MS), 1944
How bout that, a racist in the Democrat Party. Although this isn’t some uncommon phenomenon, it was quite common in fact during most of the 20th century. The southern Democrats were the one’s who opposed desegregation, they were pro-slavery, and after the civil war many southern Democrats laid the foundations for the Klu Klux Klan. Oh by the way, Democrats were largely against Civil Rights legislation, Republicans were responsible for getting it passed because many Republicans stood behind LBJ while he signed it into law.
So we must debunk this myth that Democrats are the party of openness when it comes to race. Instead they exploited the Civil Rights era, they used welfare to control black America, and they use class warfare as a wedge issue in what I consider 21st century slavery.
