As a Black Conservative, I'm beginning to feel like my parents and grandparents must have felt back in the 50s and 60s, when Blacks were being oppressed by Democrats and their racist policies. Because today, Democrats are going "Back to the Future" in the oppression of Conservatives.
I learned recently that the University of Colorado doesn't want to admit a Conservative Fellow, as this article from Gazette.com points out:
It appears that liberals have shifted their oppression from Blacks and other minorities, their vitriol now pointed at Conservatives. And they are using the same tactics as their kinsmen the KKK did in the 1950s,
Black families of the 1950s were for the most part, whole, nuclear families, with both parents present in the home. Both parents worked, usually at menial jobs, but they managed to pay their bills, and get home to eat with their kids.
There was a focus on education, as back then it was something that was not readily available to Blacks back then, as it is today.
The core of the 1950s Black family was a strong spiritual foundation, which permeated into society as a whole.
Being raised by my grandparents, I was exposed to those 1950s Black sensibilities, when I was given $10 by a friend of mine. My grandmother thought I might have stolen it, so she took me to my friend's house, and made me tell my story, in front of God and everybody. My friend thankfully admitted giving me the money. I was made to give it back anyway.
A powerful lesson for seven-year old to get, which was, "…you can't get something for nothing." A conservative value, and a concept that leaves liberals contemplating their navels.
So what are liberals so afraid of? This was the same question people were asking in the 1950s about Black people, until a decade later Blacks revolted. And we had a little help.
With the help of Republicans, the cause of civil rights was again at the forefront. For those of you who may have forgotten, Republicans had earlier taken up this mantle for Blacks when Republicans FREED THE SLAVES! Sorry to get a little loud there. And when Khrushchev sent Kennedy back home with his tail between his legs, so he would listen to that great Black Republican, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, the cause of civil rights was finally seen as politically expedient by those racist Democrats.
Here's the wrap:
Frankly I am not surprised by the Liberals' racist intimidation tactics. From where I sit, it is just the circular pattern of life. This time however they are smart enough to not use water cannons and police dogs. Oh, and their targets are more difficult to spot.
That's my rant!
