What Does "Racial Socialism"
Sound Like To You?
|The United States today has slipped toward
race-based socialism: That's the true name for an overwhelming bias for
one race above others, in employment, promotion, and educational
opportunities. Our media are constantly stirring the witch's brew of
racial grievances, constantly making black people feel aggrieved and
white people feel accused. Our schools drive that lesson home with young
and innocent kids in a totally ruthless way. Repeat that for twelve
years of schooling and TV, and you have a brainwashed kid.
is what European socialists have done with class envy for the last
hundred years: whip up the poor against the middle and the rich. It's in
their standard bag of tricks. The American Left has just added racial
grievances to class anger and resentment, always feeding more and more
power to the racial socialists to buy peace for the very grievances they
have whipped up in the first place. The NAACP today practices racial
socialism. So does Obama. "Racial Socialism" drives the Left's current
assault on American values. That's why Jeremiah Wright is such a
significant part of Obama's life. Wright specialized in whipping up
racial anger for political purposes. Obama's career was powered by it.
Only 12.3 percent of Americans are black, and they cannot
command a majority vote. It's therefore necessary to add gender
socialism, because half the population are women. If enough women can be
made to feel rage against normative America, along with blacks,
Hispanics, and the poor, you've got majority control of the country. You
can add the wackier Greens, the ones who fall for the global warming
scam, the anti-nuclear scam, and all the other anti-scientific Luddites
who vote Left. The Democrats control our major cities with a coalition
of those whipped-up grievance groups.
We are no longer a society
run by talent, work, and opportunity. Like ancient Egypt and Sumer, we
are a society where the ruling class exploits its productive workers by
taxing their labor, talent, and ability to recognize and use new
Barack H. Obama is the logical outcome of racial
socialism. You can see it in his words and actions, and his very
physical stance, all signaling his sense of superiority, the flip-side
of feelings of inferiority he is reacting against. Obama's core support
came from the Leftist alliance of grievance groups in spite of his total
lack of relevant experience. Obama is objectively the least qualified
person to ever be elected to the presidency. But the media could not say
that, because it would have been non-P.C. to tell the truth.
Obama's election was a kind of guilt propitiation by the American people
for the history of slavery. But that is bizarre. Living people are not
responsible for what others did two hundred years ago. That is a racist
idea -- it makes sense only if whites have Evil Genes -- just like
traditional anti-Semitism and hatred for blacks as a race.
are seeing the consequences right in front of our eyes today, as this
administration demonstrates its incompetence and intellectual confusion
about the most obvious problems we face -- the Islamist terror threat,
The most famous version of racial socialism is
you-know-who. The Nazis rose to power by whipping up racial resentment
against the Jews, the Gypsies, and other "inferior" peoples: race-based
national socialism. For the Nazis, the "oppressed" were the German
people, das Volk, as a race. Racial socialism is routine in
post-colonial regimes, like in the case of Robert Mugabe, who clings to
power by scapegoating white Zimbabweans, people who also happen to run
the farms that provide food for that country. Like Stalin and Kim Jong
Il, Mugabe is exploiting racial divisions at the cost of starvation and
poverty for his people.
That is also why Obama's Dreams from My
Father is an important policy statement, whether Bill Ayers wrote it or
not. Obama is a post-colonial socialist, as was his father -- a Kenyan
who wanted revenge against white Britons who ran colonial Kenya. That is
why as president, Obama bizarrely tries to diss the Brits -- both the
Queen and socialist Prime Minister Gordon Brown -- while bowing low to
autocrats like the king of Saudi Arabia. There is something very
regressive about that. It is looking to the past, not the present or the
Post-colonial socialism has been a universal failure
wherever it has been tried. Robert Mugabe is one in a long series of
failures. In India, the big post-colonial socialist was Jawaharlal
Nehru, and his Congress Party has now switched its economic policies to
encourage free markets, having learned something from decades of
economic failure. In China, a similar evolution has happened. In Africa
the most successful regimes have rejected post-colonial revenge
But don't we owe black Americans something for the
sins of slavery? Just like we owe women for the sins of sexism, and gays
for the sins of heterosexuality?
The answer is no. Remedies for
past injustices cannot be used to overthrow a society. Germany's forced
reparations after World War I destroyed the economy and the middle
class, thereby undermining France and the rest of Europe as well. The
attempted "remedy" for past sins also created a nationalistic revenge
movement, the Nazis, who committed aggression even bloodier than World
War I. Revenge movements do not make for peace.
But that is
precisely what Racial Socialism is all about. But a society based on
racial compensation turns into a tyranny, just as a society based on
racial superiority does. Real democracy allows individuals to overcome
their circumstances. But you can't overcome your race, your gender, or,
in some cases, your sexual preferences. America is therefore being
driven relentlessly toward a European ruling class model based on
inheritance and not talent, hard work, and opportunity.
Race-based socialism is not progressive, but radically regressive, going
back to the clan-based ruling classes of the first city-states in human
history, as in Sumer, Egypt, and the Indus Valley six thousand years
ago. The Indian caste system arose as a racial layering of Indian
society by different invading tribal groups. The Left is always pointing
the finger at mainstream America for the sin of racism. But racial
divide and conquer is precisely the deliberate strategy of the Left.
In Britain, Labour politicians have finally confessed that they has
deliberately imported hundreds of thousands of Pakistani Muslims to
serve as cheap wedge-voters against British whites, while constantly
accusing normal, decent people of racism. Throughout Western societies,
the Left has conducted a mean and cynical assault on the mainstream of
society, constantly undermining normal people while laying claim to a

|Comrade Michael Eric Dyson Hearts Obama

Dyson is a former

To give the man credit, if U.S. conservatives and libertarians
could muster the passion for liberty that comrade Dyson has for
socialism, they'd be winning hands down right now.
