Read it all here, but this is the more interesting part of the piece at FrontPageMag. How anyone can be fooled by the race baiting and demagoguery is beyond me, it’s so plain as the light of day. The Left is simply buying its constituency off, to their detriment. Welfare and soft racism of lower expectations have done nothing to help the Black community, on the contrary, it has served to only stigmatize it, and allow the race hustlers to exploit it for their own personal gain.
In the end, it’s America that loses, which might be their aim after all.
Ann Coulter Speaks at Wednesday Morning Club
For the first hundred years of American history, Coulter noted, the liberal Democrats refused to treat blacks as human beings and for the second hundred years they have refused to treat them as adults.
This should come as no surprise when one considers that the Democrats are the party of the Ku Klux Klan, the party of segregation, the party of secession, the party of slavery and now the party of extreme left-wing socialism. They opposed the 1964 Civil Rights Act until they realized they could keep blacks oppressed by making them hapless wards of the nanny state, a permanent underclass that would vote for Democrats in election after election. They wrapped up the black community in the mantle of their own form of racism: the racism of low expectations out of which affirmative action was born — a system which rewards the undeserving, results in inappropriate job placements and stigmatizes its presumed beneficiaries.
It has become obvious to millions of Americans that the pendulum of fairness has swung too far in the opposite direction such that false cries of racism on any subject are taken seriously and confound rational thought. Such was the case, said Coulter, with Rodney King, the Duke rape trial, Tawana Brawley and O.J. Simpson. Black or white, the race hustlers, with their greedy appetites and racial rhetoric, have deliberately inflamed passions, distorted justice and caused bloodshed, while keeping their feet firmly planted on the ladder of preferment and suffering no consequences.
Some resentments in life spring from a yearning for fairness, but the agenda of those who use racial demagoguery has nothing to do with justice or the empowerment of the alleged victims they claim to defend. It has everything to do with keeping the lid on a stew of concocted discontent so leftists can nurture the illusion of being society’s heroes to whom the rest of us should defer. It’s impossible for them to keep the balloon rising without the necessary infusion of hot air. This has become the modus operandi of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and even our Attorney General, Eric Holder, whose reluctance to prosecute the New Black Panthers for voter intimidation in 2008 puts the American people in the unenviable position of no longer being able to trust the umpire.
Thus do small men cast large shadows, but not as large as the moving curtain of lies that Ann Coulter sweeps aside in her new book. Coulter expertly exposes the crass falsifications, the calcified cynicism and the sanctimonious racial demagoguery that has stained, corrupted and corroded every aspect of our national existence. If these rifts are not mended, America will never become a unified country, but one riven with deep racial divisions — which is good for the political fortunes of the Left, but not very good for the future of the country.
