The Democratic Party is a Party of Racism…

… Things are going to get a little politic-y around here, more so than usual. Brace yourselves. As I mentioned in the past, I do have plans to attend various events during the Democratic National Convention aka Abortapoolza. I’ll be around Pearl Park interviewing and speaking with the protest groups, at the protest march, and attending several prayer vigils before and during the convention. I have no interest in hearing or covering the speeches; Cecile Richards, Nancy Keenan, and Sandra Fluke – Puh-lease. The sounds coming out of my cat’s ass would be less odious.

So let’s get this thing started. Racism.

The Democratic party is a party of racism. The harder they point the finger at the GOP with accusations of racism the more painfully obvious it becomes. Democrats are race obsessed. And why shouldn’t they be? It worked last election. Obama was elected solely based on his race. He was supposed to represent a finale to the civil rights movement; to prove to the country that we’ve finally moved beyond the days of slavery and segregation. “Look how progressive we are; how far we’ve come. We elected an African American to be our president”. Never mind the nation didn’t know a thing about him at the time. He was charming and slick. And black. And that was all that matter.

However, we know him a little better now. We’ve observed his attack on religious freedoms, his inability to grasp the most basic concepts of financial prudence, his cronyism, his sympathy to Muslims, and his contempt for the unborn to the extremest extents. So naturally, when held up to scrutiny, Obama must return to the old working strategy of racism if he hopes to be re-elected.

So here we are again, facing another presidential election where Democrats have effectively divided the nation into Minority Groups V. Big-Bad-Rich-White-People. This is a genius and alternately lazy debating tactic. Genius because the focus has been turned around, yet again, on race and deflected off of Obama’s glaring failures. It’s lazy, in that name calling and emotionally charged rhetoric is next to impossible to logically debate. Race is the perfect Straw Man.

How exactly are the Democrats playing the race card? With rousing games of “Look at all the white folks at the Republican National Convention – I knew they were racists”.

Oh, and intentionally not giving air time to speakers Mia Love, Condoleeza Rice, Susana Martinez and Arthur Davis. Because that would blow the whole facade; that the Republican party is a white man’s party. So in case you missed them…

Condoleeza Rice

Mia Love

Arthur Davis

Susana Martinez

What else does the mainstream media, that bastion of liberal bias, do when they aren’t editing out speeches by articulate minorities… why make racist off color jokes about throwing parties while black people drown and race baiting.

But wait, there’s more.

Did you know that if you an well spoken and educated African American you are an Uncle Tom, or in Mia Love’s case, an Aunt Tom and a “house nigger”? Apparently being educated and articulate are not suppose to be characteristics of minority groups. And if you are a black women you’re supposed to be a Democrat by default; if you’re not than you must be a race traitor. How does that thinking leave room for forming individual ideas and beliefs and respecting those ideas and beliefs that may be different from our own? Oh, it doesn’t. Who are the racists again?

And finally, a single race does not collectively think and vote the same way. Just as not all African American’s are democrats, neither are all Hispanics. There is no “Hispanic vote” to be bought with insulting promises of amnesty. That’s stereotyping. It implies that Hispanic’s only political concern is immigration… because, you know, you must be illegal or have an illegal family member or something.

When you have a person who cannot look past another person’s race, who consistently stereotypes based on that race, and treats that person with hostility when they don’t conform to that perception; you have a person who practices racism. You have the Democratic party.

    Same goes if you are a Catholic woman in graduate theology in the USA. If you are a Catholic woman in graduate theology in the USA you simply must be a Grade A feminist and believe in women “priests”. Unfortunately there are traditionalists as quick to jump to this conclusion as the Spirit of Vatican 2 people.

      Yep. Call me, Seraphic, and we’ll have a beer over this.

      ? I call them Dr. if they are a PhD. Catholic Women aren’t allowed to be priests nor do I know any catholic female PhD’s in theology that contest this need. Is this actually a problem?

    I agree as a Hispanic this whole argument has really annoyed me. Let’s stick to the facts and logistics..oh wait that would be even harder considering the current administrations track record. Sooo we attack with like you said the one thing that is as illogical as all those ladies standing outside the RNC dresses as “lady parts” let’s blame everyone for being racist. Isn’t there a term in psychology when you blame someone else for being something that you truly are? hmmmm

    • http://www.patheos.com/blogs/thecrescat Katrina Fernandez

      Yes. They are projecting their own racism.

  • Dudley

    Are you forreal? Your logic here is very much off center. So since the democrats expose an uncomfortable truth they are racist? First of all let’s give the real as in “clinical” definition of racism. Racism is Power plus Prejudice. First off you have to have the power political,cultural or economic to enforce your will on a people and the Racial Bigotry to see that these people are the target of that power negatively.

    People confuse bigotry with racism. NOT THE SAME.

    • http://www.patheos.com/blogs/thecrescat Katrina Fernandez

      Let me ask you… why is it ok for the Dems to constantly point out the “lack of color” in the GOP but it would be condemned as deplorable if the GOP pointed out of the very same lack of diversity within the Democratic party? Reverse racism is still racism… not bigotry.

    …just as all Catholics will not think and vote the same way. I am so disappointed to see this blog post. My Catholic faith is a refuge and beacon that brings people together. It is not a divisive political machine. Maybe you should consider getting into politics.
    Peace be with you.

    “Obama was elected solely based on his race.”
    Probably not. He was elected because he was a superior candidate in the final, and because he out-politicked the Clintons in the primary.
    Count me a skeptic on the reasoning behind this essay. Politicians on both sides of the aisle have problems with racism, and other blinders, some even more serious. But the truth is that many of the president’s opponents are racists.

  • ANB

    OMG. Thanks for this article! I’m tired of my Democrat friends (which is 90% of them) telling me that all Republicans are racists, hate the poor, want to take away women’s rights, hate immigrants, blah, blah, blah. I try not to judge my friends’ political leanings and I keep quiet during political conversations, but then I’m the one who is attacked. Oh, and my favorite, “How can an educated woman with a Ph.D., like yourself, be a Republican”?

    • Elizabeth K.

      Another female Ph.D. here who’s voting Republican this election. Perhaps universities need to start forming support groups for us!

    The Democrats are getting way beyond absurd with their projection of their own racism on Republicans. It’s impossible to keep a straight face about it anymore. If a Republican says, “Highs in the mid-70′s, lows in the low 60′s, chance of showers,” Dems will say it’s a secret, coded, invisible racist remark, but Dems can use the n-word and draw Gone With The Wind caricatures of their opponents and they simply can’t see that they’re the racists. Good post. We should keep pointing it out until they all wake up and hear themselves.

    Only Mormons can say they are pure when it comes to racism. We ascend to the highest level of heaven. Christians can only ascend to the lowest level, because of their racism and other sins.

    • http://www.patheos.com/blogs/thecrescat Katrina Fernandez

      Yes. and because half the nation is stupid.

      Look what the GOP ran against him, a stereotypical rich white guy.

    A country is only as successful as the US & Canada have been because of conservative, moderate, & liberal opinions listening to each & learning to compromise. Two prominent conservatives from the past would have told you this; Barry Goldwater, & Ronald Reagan. It is damaging & reprehensible that no stone has been left unturned in the efforts to demonize liberal thinking. The Pilgrims of Plymouth Rock fame, for example; did indeed flee Britain seeking the freedom to practice their faith free from persecution by the Church of England.And they found that freedom, in Holland. But they also found freedom of religion for all faiths & they weren’t about to tolerate this. Freedom of religion can only come from a liberal perspective. Read factual history from the Library of Congress, rather than the revisions that are patently false. Obama is a good & decent family man, & has conducted himself with honesty, integrity, & ethics. This drove the right wing to distraction; such that they began the campaign; out of desperation from not finding any ‘dirt’ on the man; involving his religion, called him the anti-Christ, snickered about assassination threats, & displayed unchristian & odious, racism
    Liberals in America got women the right to vote, got African-Americans the right to vote, created Social Security, & lifted millions of elderly out of poverty. They ended segregation, passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, & the Clean Air & Clean Water Acts. What did conservatives do? They opposed everyone of these measures.
    “Nolite judicare ut non judicemini”.

      You lost all credibility at “Obama is a good & decent family man”.
