The racism of the left

It’s okay if it’s against a black conservative, as Senator Tim Scott demonstrated yesterday:

  1. Cornhead Says:

    Black conservatives take the most heat. Ask Justice Thomas.

  2. John Guilfoyle Says:

    I’m old enough to remember Justice Thomas’ confirmation process…I knew then where the Klan robes were stored. Basically where they’d always been stored.

  3. parker Says:

    I marvel at the intolerance of the left.

  4. Griffin Says:

    Blacks and young single women are the must have for the left to win elections so they must be kept in line at all costs. If they lose a few percentage points from those groups they are dead. Thus the extreme hatred for someone like Tim Scott.

  5. Geoffrey Britain Says:

    ‘Heretics’ are always the most despised by ‘the faithful’. Heresy is a greater sin than even apostasy or blasphemy being seen as the greater threat.

  6. AesopFan Says:

    Anyone who has ever read Stowe’s novel realizes that the epithet “Uncle Tom” is a badge of honor.
    (I admit to not opening it until a couple of years ago; it should be required reading in all schools.)

    Do those ignorant railers against conservative blacks even remember that it inspired an apocryphal “Lincoln” quote crediting her with starting the war to eliminate slavery?
    That Tom’s stoicism and dignity stemmed from his Christian faith is probably what turned the Left against him.
    I’ve lifted the entire Wikipedia article to show that even that generally left-edited organ admits its historical impact, with the modern caveats of the last paragraph unexamined.

    Uncle Tom’s Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly,[1][2] is an anti-slavery novel by American author Harriet Beecher Stowe. Published in 1852, the novel “helped lay the groundwork for the Civil War”, according to Will Kaufman.[3]
    Stowe, a Connecticut-born teacher at the Hartford Female Seminary and an active abolitionist, featured the character of Uncle Tom, a long-suffering black slave around whom the stories of other characters revolve. The sentimental novel depicts the reality of slavery while also asserting that Christian love can overcome something as destructive as enslavement of fellow human beings.[4][5][6]
    Uncle Tom’s Cabin was the best-selling novel of the 19th century and the second best-selling book of that century, following the Bible.[7][8] It is credited with helping fuel the abolitionist cause in the 1850s.[9] In the first year after it was published, 300,000 copies of the book were sold in the United States; one million copies in Great Britain.[10] In 1855, three years after it was published, it was called “the most popular novel of our day.”[11] The impact attributed to the book is great, reinforced by a story that when Abraham Lincoln met Stowe at the start of the Civil War, Lincoln declared, “So this is the little lady who started this great war.”[12] The quote is apocryphal; it did not appear in print until 1896, and it has been argued that “The long-term durability of Lincoln’s greeting as an anecdote in literary studies and Stowe scholarship can perhaps be explained in part by the desire among many contemporary intellectuals … to affirm the role of literature as an agent of social change.”[13]
    The book and the plays it inspired helped popularize a number of stereotypes about black people.[14] These include the affectionate, dark-skinned “mammy”; the “pickaninny” stereotype of black children; and the “Uncle Tom”, or dutiful, long-suffering servant faithful to his white master or mistress. In recent years, the negative associations with Uncle Tom’s Cabin have, to an extent, overshadowed the historical impact of the book as a “vital antislavery tool.”[15]

  7. Frog Says:

    Liberal fascism.

  8. n.n Says:

    [class] diversity is racism, judgment of people by the “color of their skin”. This is actually principled judgment of character, which is congruent (“=”) with their religious, ideological, and political temperament. It is only Pro-Choice by virtue of their faith and character.

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
