What do we want in a leader? Do we want someone who trips all over himself to apologize for slights that happened in the century before last? Do we not understand that this is why the West is decaying? Instead of moving civilization forward as it has for the past millenia, the Western world can do nothing but apologize for its prosperity, as if it was ill gotten. Enter Barry Obama. He's going to take the crying game to a whole new level. Yesterday at a minority press convention (is there a white press convention?) he said this:
"There's no doubt that when it comes to our treatment of Native Americans as well as other persons of color in this country, we've got some very sad and difficult things to account for. . . I personally would want to see our tragic history, or the tragic elements of our history, acknowledged."
Yes, instead of moving the country forward, lets wring our hands about Andrew Jackson's actions in the 19th century. Let's all feel just terrible about Jim Crow laws, and at the same time further LBJ era programs that have destroyed black families and black prosperity. Hey, at least whitey feels bad though. At least we've publicly dragged America's name through the mud, which is what this is really all about, isn't it Barry? America's this great, exceptional nation? The last, best hope of mankind? Not so fast my friend. We're awful, and have no right to tell Iran or North Korea how to run their countries. We'd better up our foreign aid to the 3rd world, because our white prosperity was built on their backs, (Even though America was a wilderness with no infrastructure before whitey found it and built it into a juggernaut.) and domestically, we're going to set things long past, right at last:
"I consistently believe that when it comes to whether it's Native Americans or African-American issues or reparations, the most important thing for the U.S. government to do is not just offer words, but offer deeds."
When white people see a good chunk of their paycheck go to a person of another race for crimes that the white guy didn't commit, and the non white guy wasn't personally victimized by, I'm sure it will completely eradicate racial tension forever in America. What a great idea Barry. We don't have enough white racists in this country to point to as oppressors. Let's create millions more by taking away their money and giving it to people of a different race who did nothing to earn it. You certainly are the post racial candidate. I'm sure KKK grand wizards across the country didn't just get a chubby reading this.
If you really want to help out people of color, Barry, dismantle the welfare state. That will do much more for black children than a one time payment that makes them hated by half the country.
