Marcus Tullius Cicero said: “When you have no basis for an argument, abuse the plaintiff.”
It is a rare joy indeed to watch the chaos set into motion when a Liberal makes public an opinion that differs from the standard Liberal talking points. There are certain parameters within which Liberals are meant to stay, comfortably and happily. If one strays outside those borders, even a little, they are denounced by the village elders in the harshest way possible. As fun as it is to watch, there are times when it becomes frustrating. I’m currently frustrated because the absurdity has reached outside the realm of comedy and into reality.
Recently, Bill O’Reilly made remarks about the black community with which I very much agree. He said:
“Here is the headline: young black men commit homicides at a rate 10 times greater than whites and Hispanics combined. When presented with damning evidence like that, and like the mini-holocaust in Chicago where hundreds of African-Americans are murdered each year the civil rights industry looks the other way or makes excuses. They blame guns, poor education, lack of jobs, rarely do they define the problem accurately. So here it is. The reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the African-American family…Right now about 73 percent of all black babies are born out of wedlock. That drives poverty. And the lack of involved fathers leads to young boys growing up resentful and unsupervised…So, raised without much structure, young black men often reject education and gravitate towards the street culture, drugs, hustling, gangs. Nobody forces them to do that; again, it is a personal decision.”
O’Reilly goes on to criticize the black entertainment industry, focusing mainly on music. His message is harsh, direct, brutal and true. However, Bill O’Reilly works for Fox, is fairly conservative, and white. It doesn’t matter what O’Reilly said, because the Left denounces whatever Conservatives say, regardless of their position or affiliation.
Here’s where the story gets interesting. Liberal CNN host Don Lemon not only publicly agreed with O’Reilly’s statements, but took them even further. Lemon said:
“He is right about that, too. But in my estimation, he doesn’t go far enough. Because black people, if you really want to fix the problem, here’s just five things that you should think about doing…Here’s number five. Pull up your pants. Some people, a lot of them black, gave me flak for saying that recently on ‘The Wendy Williams Show.’ In fact, it comes from prison…And then it evolved into which role a prisoner would have during male-on-male prison sex. The one with the really low pants is the submissive one. You get my point?…Number four is the n-word…I hosted a special on the n-word, suggesting that black people stop using it and that entertainers stop deluding yourselves or themselves and others that you’re somehow taking the word back…Now number three. Respect where you live…I live in Harlem now, it’s an historically black neighborhood, every single day I see adults and children dropping their trash on the ground when a garbage can is just feet away. Just being honest here…Number two, finish school. You want to break the cycle of poverty? Stop telling kids they’re acting white because they go to school or they speak proper English. A high school dropout makes on average $19,000 a year…a college graduate makes $51,000 a year…And number one, and probably the most important, just because you can have a baby, it doesn’t mean you should. Especially without planning for one or getting married first. More than 72 percent of children in the African-American community are born out of wedlock. That means absent fathers. And the studies show that lack of a male role model is an express train right to prison and the cycle continues.”
I included almost everything that was said because I think it’s important. Don Lemon has now been denounced by numerous black and white political pundits and commentators. He has even been called a “turncoat.” He has been labeled as a traitor because he strayed from the Liberal prison of opinion.
Lemon did an important thing. Whether or not he realizes it, Don Lemon has brutally pulled back the curtain; he has revealed the small-minded person behind the scenes. The elite Liberal community, as a collective, has created a prison of opinion, trapping all of their followers inside. They keep careful watch over their prisoners; they build social walls, and string those walls with razor-wire. If a prisoner tries to escape, they are terminated.
There are two points I want to make here. The first is that the Left does not tolerate dissent, especially from black people. Any time a black person leaves the liberal prison, they are no longer black in the eyes of the Left; they are Uncle Toms and traitors. That is base racism. It is foul, and it is wrong.
Second, I’m not sure where Liberals live, but I live in reality. I understand that whites enslaved blacks; I understand that black people are subject to racism, even in today’s world; what I don’t understand is “white guilt.” Liberals seem to believe that because of the prior wrongs committed by white people, black people can never be in the wrong. Every problem in the black community can be traced to a white person—usually a man. Everything said by O’Reilly and Lemon means nothing, because it is not a cultural problem in the black community, it is an issue of white oppression. This too is wrong.
The problems in the black community will never be resolved if we have a mentality that incorrectly assigns blame. Interestingly enough, amongst the vicious attacks against Don Lemon, you will see nary a logical, cohesive argument as to why he is wrong. This is because the Left has no logical, cohesive argument. They can yell and scream; they can call people names, but they will never be able to negate Lemon’s statement.
The interior of the Liberal prison has been revealed; the walls have been breached. It is both a sad and joyous day. It is sad because this dogmatic, illogical thinking will continue in the Liberal community, but it is joyous because one man made a break for it. Maybe more will follow.
