One definition reads, “Racialism is normally defined as any view, practice, or action that reflects a belief that one race of human beings is superior to others, or that any racial group is inferior to others."
There is some context, however. On the question of whether or not he was a racist, Enoch Powell answered, "If by racialist one suggests a conscious difference among men and nations of various backgrounds, then in that context everyone is a racist. On the other hand, if by racialist one means a man who despises a human being because of his race, or a man who believes that one race is superior to another, then no, I am not a racist."
It would seem Mr. Powell's definition assumes an American characteristic after 1824. Moral Americans soundly rejected the notion of human beings as property, or of simple minds to be taken advantage of … while realizing that there are differences among men, and nothing is ever going to change this. Responsible Americans realize that that utopia only exists in the mind of the inexperienced, or the foolish. Unfortunately, however, the notion of enslavement does continue in the modern day; now as a primary platform of the so-called progressive movement.
The belief among modern conservatives is that a racialist will go out of his or her way to demean others because of their race, their skin color, or their ethnic identification. It is this precise behavior one observes among progressive politicians in the congress, throughout the various state apparatuses, and within the current administration. There is simply no other way to explain the concerted effort among progressive communists to keep American blacks poor, ignorant, and dependent upon government for their sense of self-worth.
But of course, there are two points of view. The opposite side of this argument, the progressive argument, is that a racist is anyone who dares to speak honestly and critically about an inept president, or corrupt politicians, and particularly if the corrupt or inept politician is an ethnic minority. The long and short of it is that anyone who dares to criticize the likes of Maxine Waters, or John Conyers, or Eric Holder, or Barack Obama, the idiot Hank Johnson, or the whore monger Robert Menendez must be a racist. They maintain that this criticism comes to them not because they have character flaws, or because they have ill-served the American people, but rather because anyone who criticizes them is a racist.
We realize this doesn’t make much sense —unless you repeat it often enough and the not so bright among us actually begin to believe it. Progressives believe there is no harm in giving inept or corrupt politicians a “racial bounce” when they are members of some ethnic minority, but in our view, this is as much an act of racism as denying citizens access to a public lunch counter.
With this in mind, we (as a nation) must have overlooked the startling clarity of Dr. Jack Wheeler, who in 2008 wrote:
“Barack Hussein Obama is an eloquently tailored empty suit. He has no resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how our economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls … nothing, in fact, but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of substance.
“The man has no identity; he is half white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African surname and his Arabic first and middle names, proclaiming his Arab parentage to people in Kenya. Only a small part of him is black African from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.
“What he is not, what he is not even a genetic drop of, is ‘African American.’ He is not the descendent of enslaved Africans brought to the Americas chained in slave ships. He hasn’t a single ancestor who was a slave. Instead, his Arab ancestors were slave owners. They were profitable slave-trading Muslims —until the British ended it.”
This is the real Barack Obama, who in their infinite wisdom the American people elected —twice.
Was Jack Wheeler a racist, or was he simply making an astute observation? Was making this candid observation Jack Wheeler’s responsibility, or was it rather the obligation of a free and unfettered press? Beyond the spurious claims that Wheeler was a racist, is there anything Dr. Wheeler wrote that isn't true?
Among a few, then, it was no surprise that Jack Wheeler’s body turned up on a trash heap. Some would describe his murder as his likely comeuppance. Others might call it Chicago politics ... the kind of gangsterism we've come to expect from Eric Holder, who sold guns to Mexican drug gangs in order to make a case against our Second Amendment rights and, after accusing Americans of cowardice for failing to engage in honest dialogue about racialism, labeled as racists anyone who would stand up to Black Panther thugs or the unseemly politics of Kwame Kilpatrick and Monica Conyers.
