The “I’m Offended” Movement is Cultural Marxism in Action

by Al Benson Jr.

I have been watching this game of minorities and others being “offended” at just about anything and everything anyone else says or does. It has gotten beyond being ludicrous so we need to stop and take a good look at it and where it is headed.

The “I’m Offended” game, or maybe agenda would be a more correct term, seems to do one thing–it limits freedom of expression and action. For fear of “offending” someone you dare not say this or do that, and so if you follow this to its logical conclusion you end up saying nothing, doing nothing and thinking nothing. Such inaction on the part of most people makes totalitarians, whether they be Democrats, Republicans or Communists deliriously happy.

Lots of folks have started to notice this trend (agenda) of late.  I read a quote just last week that said: “My freedom ends where your feelings begin.” That’s a very accurate statement. The man who said it understands what’s going on. I read another one this week where the man said: “I’m offended by all those folks being offended over nothing.” That one is also on target.

There are so many out there now that are “offended” by so much that if everyone gives in to their list of pet grievances society will come to a screeching halt. Could that possibly be the name of the game?

They had a major flap at Yale recently over, guess what, Halloween costumes! An article on  for November 10th said: “Halloween is more than a week in the past,  but students at Yale University are having a tough time moving on. Angry that school administrators did not take their concerns about offensive costuming seriously enough, a group of minority students met with Yale president Peter  Salovey last week to have their say. Salovery, it seems, was moved by what he heard.” What politically correct, blubbering sycophant who runs any kind of school in today’s offended world wouldn’t  be “moved” when students came to him with this kind of frippery? It gives him a chance to buddy with the plebes as if he really cared about their concerns.

It seems that some of these students are finding life on the campus of Yale “profoundly difficult.” It actually got to the point where the Intellectual Affairs Committee sent out an email requesting that students not wear “culturally unaware and insensitive costumes.” The article stated: “Apparently we’ve reached that point in history where one can take a joke.” Oh, you better believe you’ve reached it. We have arrived at the point where no one can say or even think anything that some minority group will not find offensive and jump all over your case about. There is absolutely NO humor in these people whatever. They are deadly serious.

You have to understand that this “I’m offended” agenda is another phase of Cultural Marxism. That’s all it is.  It restricts people’s liberty to laugh, or kid, and if the truth were known, much of it is not all that offensive, no matter what they say.  And I have noticed that these people who are waiting in line to “be offended” at the drop of a hat seem to have no problem at all offending white Christians, or any real Christians for that matter. They are literally standing in line to have their shot at putting Christians and their beliefs down. Haven’t noticed that? Maybe you just haven’t been paying attention. White Christians especially are the one group that it’s perfectly okay to offend, particularly if they are from the South. In fact, its’ open season on them.  Anything goes–and unfortunately, most of them don’t have sense enough to realize it yet. They’ve been kept too busy not trying to “offend” every other group around–even to the point where a lesbian “bishop” in some church in Sweden has had the cross removed from her church lest it “offend” the Muslims! You would not believe how much of this crap goes on and how much the Christians play into it unknowingly. Not much spiritual discernment left in this day and apostate age. We are so busy trying not to “offend” rank unbelievers that we can’t be bothered to stand up and defend what we are supposed to believe. After all, that might “offend” someone!

Now I am not advocating that we go out of our way to try to offend anyone, but let’s face it, Christians, just by being Christians are going to “offend” lots of folks. The truth always offends those who don’t want to believe it. If the truth offends you, I’m sorry, that’s tough. Jesus said in Matthew 11:6 “…blessed is he whosoever shall not be offended in me.” Maybe Christians need to be more concerned in making sure they are not offended by Jesus and His teaching than they need to be concerned that they might offend some pagan who doesn’t want the truth anyway.

We have, this past summer, had a concentrated campaign of ethnic and cultural cleansing here in the South that has been the most dramatic I can recall in my lifetime. And you can tell that those people who want to trash our culture, want to get rid of our flags, statues, monuments, even park and street names (it all has to go, immediately if not sooner) are playing for keeps. I don’t think most Southern folks realize the intensity of the hatred those people have for us and our history, faith and culture. Everything we believe and do is “offensive” to minorities and therefore, we must stop it all, right now.

I wonder, has anyone bothered to put forth the possibility that what they are trying to do to our history, faith, and culture just might be offensive to us? Oh, that’s not even a concern. Our right to exist ends where their injured feelings begin and we need to be on “stools of everlasting repentance” forever.

After all, the Cultural Marxists are only trying to obliterate  our faith, history, and culture–why should we be offended at that? I’ll tell you something–you’d better learn to be offended by it, otherwise they just may pull it off! Where will you be then?

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again–you had better learn how to resist these people because that’s the only thing they understand–and if you don’t do it they will just run over you as if you were so much “collateral” damage. And, as for these folks that are “offended” by everything from soup to nuts, start telling them to be thankful they still have the right to be “offended.” It’s one of the few rights they still have. And if this “gentleman”  they helped put into the White House has his way they won’t have that long!

It Can All Hang Out In Fort Smith Public Schools But the Confederate Flag

by Al Benson Jr.

The city of Fort Smith, Arkansas may be familiar to many people. It has been pictured in many Western movies. It is the city where Judge Isaac Parker, the “hanging judge” presided over his court. Judge Parker sentenced over 70 people to hang during his judicial career, and from what I have read over the years, they probably deserved it. Others who probably deserved it and didn’t get hung, through lawyers intervening in their cases one way or another. One movie I saw years ago, “True Grit” had one of Judge Parker’s marshals, played by John Wayne, referring to the legal representatives in Fort Smith as “pettifogging lawyers.”

I’ve only been to Fort Smith once, back in the 1970s, but I remember it as a distinctly Southern town. But that was then, not now. That insidious political disease known an Political Correctness (in reality it’s Cultural Marxism) has quietly seeped into many places in the South to the point where often you can hardly tell you are in the South anymore.

Suffice it to say that the public school system in Fort Smith has now imbibed in Cultural Marxism in regard to Confederate symbols like so many other places. Given the history of the public school system I guess we really shouldn’t be surprised. Untortunately, I am afraid that many who should know the real history don’t, and so they climb aboard the dumbed-down bandwagon also.

According to the Times Record a local attorney, Joey McCutchen (they aren’t all bad) is suing the Fort Smith School Board because of their decision to remove the Confederate flag, the “Dixie” fight song, and the school mascot from Southside High School in Fort Smith.

According to the Times Record article: “The move, according to a statement from the school district came after ‘giving great consideration to the continuing impact of perceived symbols of racism on the community, state, and nation’.” So we are removing all Confederate symbols all across the country now because they are “perceived symbols of racism.” They don’t actually have to be “racist” symbols–all they have to do is to be “perceived” as that and that’s more than enough for the usual knee’jerk reaction from all the politically correct types stepping out from under their leftist rocks.

McCutchen is suing the school board on behalf of a Fort Smith resident, Curtis Sorrells, and the suit cites violation of the open meetings provision of the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act.  The suit said that the publicized agenda for the June 23 School Board Committee of the Whole meeting called only for a closed meeting for discussion of Superintendent Benny Gooden’s yearly performance.  The purpose of this notice was to lead members of the public and media into believing that the meeting was solely to discuss a personnel issue and that the meeting would not be open to the public.”

It was at this closed meeting according to that “members voted to recommend changing Southside High School’s mascot and fight song. Fort Smith attorney Joey McCutchen filed the lawsuit claiming the school board violated the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act by holding a committee vote without notifying the public.” Well, yes, if you are going to work for the cultural demise of a large group of your students you obviously don’t want to do it openly. McCutchen said: “The school board did not say one word about why they were for or against, and that is concerning, so I think we, the voters, need to come out. We need to get a school board that will engage us in the process because that’s what our government stands for.” Actually it may be what government used to stand for. Nowadays it stands for whatever it can get away with! One Confederate flag supporter said “I’m tired of all the political bull.” Friend, you better hang onto your Confederate flag because all this ain’t going away any time soon.

We have to understand that all these incidents, and so many have been reported that you can’t cover them all, are all part of one fabric–one agenda–and most of these public schools are just itching to find a reason, any reason, to ban Confederate symbols of any kind. The only thing that will stop them is a massive turnout of local citizens protesting what they are trying to do, citizens telling them that if they remove Confederate symbols then their children will no longer attend that school but will find educational alternatives. They’d be better off finding educational alternatives anyway, but that’s the kind of thing school boards might respond to, as most local school districts get federal funding based on how many students attend their schools and if a particular school ends up losing 75-100 students that will adversely affect what they get from the feds. They can understand that.

The Fort Smith situation shows us a couple things. For one, there are some decent lawyers out there who do try to do the right thing. I have known, over the years, a handful of Christian lawyers who do strive to make their faith part of their law practice.

For another thing, we should start checking out on the Internet the number of these cases that have shown up since the Charleston shootings. I’ve done some of that and, believe me, they are legion and they all seem to follow a similar pattern, which means they are all part of a preconceived agenda. Hence they are not, in any way, locally spontaneous. All the people involved in different communities may not all know one another, but there is a common thread that runs through all these attempts at banning anything Confederate, whether it be in schools, whole towns, or wherever. These people are all operating off the same blueprint. So you have to ask–where did the blueprint come from?

As the Times Record article noted, Confederate symbols are perceived symbols of racism. That in no way makes the perception accurate, but then, the leftists and those who finance them really don’t care about that anyway. Their aim is to get people thinking in a certain direction that serves their purpose. Whether that direction is accurate or not (and it usually isn’t) makes not one iota of difference.

That this is a campaign of ethnic cleansing by the left should be apparent by looking at those who support it, the NAACP and the Southern Poverty Law Center, along with a host of lesser leftist luminaries.  No one in their right mind could ever consider such groups as “objective” or “middle of the road” no matter what the “news” media tells us. So start checking out some of these outfits that promote ethnic cleansing and cultural genocide in regard to Confederate history and culture. You won’t like what you find if you do the homework. And when you do find it, you should heed the biblical admonition in Ephesians 5:11 and expose it.

All “Hate” Symbols Are Not Equal

by Al Benson Jr.

George Orwell was noted, decades ago now, in his book Animal Farm for making the prophetic statement “All the animals in this barnyard are equal but some are more equal than others.” We recognize that this is true in the political realm, where those that rule us (at least the ones that we can see) claim that we and they are all equal, but it always works out that they end up being “more equal” than the rest of us because they know how to work the system. Sort of like the old Communist commissars who ruled with an iron fist in the name of the “people” but no one ever really told us which people. Obviously it wasn’t the common people. So we can always recognize as a given the fact that, no matter what the political fertilizer being spread around, there will always be a class of people that is “more equal” than the rest of us.

The same is true of cultural symbols.  Some are always portrayed as “more equal” (worse) than others, depending on whose agenda is being forwarded with the portrayal.

For instance, in the current Culturally Marxist climate, we are constantly being informed that the Confederate flag (any Confederate flag) is the premier “hate symbol” in the universe. Nazi and Communist flags pale into minor insignificance beside it. Muslim flags, carried by those who behead Christians are hardly worth mentioning because, after all, they are carried by people belonging to the “religion of peace” and so they couldn’t possibly be considered hate symbols. Ask our beloved president–he knows!

That loopy character in Charleston who murdered those nine black folks had a picture of himself taken with a Confederate flag and so doesn’t that prove this flag is the world’s foremost symbol of hate? I’ve read several comments about that photo in recent weeks, but the one that really caught my eye, and I don’t recall the site I saw it on now, said the photo of him with that flag was “ostensibly photoshopped.” After all the fuss over the president’s “birth certificate” in recent years, the term “photoshopped” caught my attention. But what about other hate symbols? What about other hate crimes?

The black journalist that killed those two white people in Virginia only a few days ago–will that be treated as a hate crime? Or will that be passed off as another case of “workplace violence?” I’m afraid most of us already know the answer to that one.

There was an article on for August 27th, the headline of which read: “Report: LGBT Rainbow Hate-Flag Found In WDBJ Killer’s Virginia Apartment.”  I’d be willing to bet your Evening Fishwrapper didn’t say it quite like that. For them it will be toned down to almost minor insignificance. The Breitbart article noted: “The Daily Telegraph has learned that ‘Police reportedly confiscated a gay pride flag’ from the apartment of Vester Lee Flanagan Wednesday. In an apparent hate crime, Flanagan is the 41 year-old black journalist who murdered two white Virginia reporters on live television Wednesday morning before turning the gun on himself… In a manifesto faxed to ABC News, Flanagan, an Obama supporter, claimed that his motive involved a ‘race war.’ Flanagan was black and gay and apparently angered by the fact that he had been a victim of racism and homophobia at the hands of black men and white women…The gay pride rainbow flag reportedly found in Flanagan’s apartment is seen by many as a symbol of anti-Christian hate.” Of course the many who view it that way are not politicians or media people.

So, do you think it will be treated that way by the “news” media? Don’t kid yourselves. They and the politicians will bend over backwards (so far they lose their balance) trying to portray the Sodomite flag as a banner of “love and inclusiveness” at the same time they are striving to paint the Confederate flag as something hateful.  And most of them have been so completely brainwashed they won’t even begin to see the glaring contradiction.

Now we all know that there have been some groups that have misused  and abused the Confederate flag.  They’ve used it for purposes it was never intended to be used for. It is now past time for good Southern folks to reclaim their flag and repudiate those who have misused it. Some have already done this. More need to.

As far as the Sodomite flag goes, it lauds and promotes what the Scriptures condemn. In that sense, to label it a hate flag is not out of line. It promotes a lifestyle that Christians should not countenance, but rather should examine in the light of Ephesians 5:11-12.  Unfortunately, many Christians will not think this is a “loving” approach and so they will reject it. And the Ruling Establishment and the “news” media which they control love to have it so.

In fact we have been deluded into such political correctness that an account of a deputy sheriff in Texas being shot in the back by a black man has now been appended so  that it reads that the sheriff was shot by a “dark-skinned” person. Are they now afraid to reveal the man’s race? Oh, I forgot, it’s only white folks that do this kind of stuff. No one else cares to be “racist” but us–and on and on the hogwash gets spread around. Let’s hope that folks are starting to get fed up with what amounts to a very large pile of bovine fertilizer!

Wet-nosed College Students and Critical Theory

By Al Benson Jr.

My comments in this article are not intended to be a blanket condemnation of all college students, but rather those college students that, thinking they are absolutely brilliant, really don’t know much of anything. I have run across several like this over the years, kids who think they have all the answers for everybody and that the world would be so much better off if it just absorbed the ageless wisdom they have to impart.

I recall talking to one student who told me seriously that he thought folks in this country should just listen to what students had to say about politics, the economy, and the world because the students are the ones that have the time to do all the research in these areas. This kid was one of many I knew that blindly swallowed the blather spewed by his leftist professors with no critical questioning or comment. And he was going to teach the rest of us how to live. I almost said to him “Junior, you’re not even dry behind the ears yet and you’re going to impart political wisdom to us older folks? Wait until you’ve lived  a few more decades and lets see how much political wisdom you have then.” But this seems to be the attitude of many (not all) young folks at this age level. They seem to “know it all” already, so one wonders why they even need college.

What led me to this line of thinking now was an article I just read on the San Antonio Express-News webpage about the student government at the University of Texas in Austin wanting to remove a statue of Jefferson Davis from the campus supposedly because Davis was a “racist.” The head of the NAACP for Texas, Gary Bledsoe, said “I think its offensive that you exalt Jefferson Davis but you don’t exalt Abraham Lincoln.” Another case of a leftist that just doesn’t know his history. Lincoln’s history of “racism” is apparently unknown to this man, or does he just hope it’s unknown to the rest of us? So he’d replace the “racist” Davis with the “racist” Lincoln and think he’d done something noble! What a farce!

However, the agenda of removing the Jefferson Davis statue at the University of Texas goes a little deeper than that. It seems that it just might be part of the Marxist Critical Theory program.

The students at the University of Texas recently elected, as the head of their student government, two sterling individuals named Xavier Rotnofsky and Rohit Mandalapu. I don’t know if the selection of these two worthies was a tribute to student diversity or what, but they ran what some have called a “humerous” campaign and I can see that, by some adolescent standards it might be considered so. This pair, as part of their platform, promised to “increase transparency in student government by mandating everyone in student government wear only cellophane so that they can be perfectly see-through.” Also they promised to “…reduce the hours that the PCL and FAC are open because less study time means more party time, baby!” They had a couple other farcial ideas to put forward, but sandwiched in amongst all this foolishness was “…we plan on taking down the Jefferson Davis statue…” One serious piece of cultural genocide hidden among all the foolishness!

Rotnofsky told a local radio station that “Jefferson Davis stood for some things that are pretty abominable today; Slavery, racism. They’re just not in line with the university’s core values.” And so, yet another attempt to remake history into what we think it ought to be rather than what it was. Unfortunately, these kids are not yet old enough to have any sense of history—and history is usually not what you would like it to be. You need to take it as it is rather than trying to make it into what you wish it was. But, then, in all honesty, slavery isn’t the real issue here. Cultural genocide is.

So we take a brief look at Rotnofsky’s running mate, Rohit Mandalapu. According to  Mandalapu’s  research interests are “…Globalization, Transnationalism , Business, and Critical Theory.” So Mandalapu is into Marxist Critical Theory. Suppose that minor coincidence has anything to do with the removal of the Jefferson Davis statue, which has already been vandalized, from the university campus?

Awhile back, December 16, 2014 to be exact, I quoted from an article on  that dealt with Critical Theory. The article said, in part, “Critical Theory was essentially destructive criticism of the main elements of Western culture, including Christianity, capitalism, the family…morality, tradition…patriotism, nationalism, heredity, ethnocentrism,…Critical theorists recognized that traditional beliefs and existing social structure would have to be destroyed and then replaced with a ‘new thinking’ that would become as much a part of the elementary consciousness as the old one had been.” Stop and read that again and begin to grasp what is being said. They plan to replace everything with their “new thinking” so that nothing will remain of Christianity, Western culture, honor, patriotism,–nothing. This seems to be where Mandalapu, at least, is coming from. I watched a video of these two students on one of the sites I looked up while checking into this. Mandalapu seems, to me, to be much more the vocal of the two.

So it seems, unless the rest of the students at the University of Texas suddenly wake up, which hardly seems likely, that the Jefferson Davis statue on campus will become yet one more victim of the Marxist Critical Theory technique as it is being applied all across this country. Just remember—in order for Marxist Critical Theory to succeed, all that came previously, Christianity, Western civilization, Southern history and heritage—must all be destroyed so the “new thinking” can be implemented.  This is where we are at today in the South and across the country as well. And the shocking leftist condition of many, many of our college campuses is something that really needs to be researched and exposed. Exposure might be a good place to start—if anyone is even interested anymore.

Our Porous (on purpose) Border

by Al Benson Jr.

It’s a good thing the alternative media is out there to fill us in on what’s going on at our Southern border and other places. What passes for the regular “news” media passes nothing along to us but meaningless drivel. While our Southern border is literally under assault, all the regular media can do is to prattle on about how “racist” the towns in Texas and California are because they are not embracing the invasion from Mexico with open arms. Of course you can’t expect anything else from them–this is the position they are paid to take–media prostitutes at best.

They deal with nothing of substance about the border situation and their agenda, as well as that of those that pay for their “services” is to keep the American people in the dark as to what is really going on.

In my “huntin’ and peckin'” for information today I came across an article on headlined: “Mexican Cartels Aid Terrorists Across US Border.” The article stated: “It is usually assumed that most illegals caught crossing the US/Mexican border are South Americans. You may be surprised to learn, however, that thousands of the illegals caught crossing the borders are classified as ‘OTMs (Other than Mexicans). A substantial number of these OTMs are Muslim terrorists. Records from a detention center near Phoenix, Arizona, show illegals from Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Sudan, and Yemen in custody. Former Arizona Congressman J. D. Hayworth said in an interview, ‘There are definitely people out there who mean to do us harm who have crossed that border’.”

An Arizona rancher living near the border found a Muslim prayer rug on his land. His comment: “This is a good indicator that there’s a whole lot of people other than just Mexicans coming into the United States.” A former border patrol agent also noted that “The American public has been kept in the dark about this whole issue.” Of course they have. We are supposed to be totally unaware of all this and our “news” media works mightily every day trying to see to it that we remain unaware. Likewise, our own government doesn’t want us to be aware of any of this. You can bet they know what’s going on but their “transparency” in all things does not include the public knowing. In fact, they are taking pains to deny it all.

When the information about the prayer rug turned up our intrepid Department of Homeland (in)Security, according to a report on “…has denied that there is any ‘credible evidence’ that any terrorists have crossed over. So the reporter took another look–and the evidence he found is even worse than originally revealed. He found that 300 terrorists from the Somali Al Queda group Al-Shabaab–the group behind the terror attack at the Kenyan shopping mall last September–have entered the U.S. and are unaccounted for.” And that Muslim prayer rug, which is not the only one found, why that belonged to an ex-patriate Irishman, don’t you know. He brought it all the way from Dublin.

A report on for July 8th noted a Human Events article from 2010 entitled “Our border is a moving sidewalk” which stated that in 2010, “Iranian currency and prayer rugs were regularly found near the southern border.” Of course no one could consider that evidence of terrorist infiltration of our Southern border–most Mexican illegals carry a certain amount of Iranian currency with them, and their wives always have Muslim prayer rugs–don’t they? And we all know it would be “racist” to consider any other possibilities.

So the illegals get in, the terrorists get in, and if you think our government is not aware of all this then you are a candidate for belief in the Easter Bunny

A recent report on observed: While amnesty proponents are quick to call on Americans to show mercy to the poor children seeking refuge in America,  empirical evidence shows that the threat illegal immigration poses to America is exponentially greater than the thousands of kids streaming across the border…Recent evidence, however, indicates the security risks extend much further to potentially include Middle Eastern terrorists bent on destroying the U.S.” If the terrorists want to destroy the U.S. they had better hurry up or own own government will beat them to it!

And as far as the “race” question, has been showing a video of black protesters out there confronting the pro-amnesty demonstrators in Murietta, California. The black folks realize, all too clearly, that if too many of those people are let into the country then that’s less jobs for blacks and so they don’t want them here either. I wonder if that makes them “racists” along with the white folks.

Just a final thought from–“The orchestrated collapse of America’s southern border is part of an overall agenda to destroy the U.S. national sovereignty in order to usher America into a North American Union with Mexico and Canada.” That’s something most of us had probably not thought about in the present context, but, hey, it does fit the pattern when you think about it. And if the Obama Regime could point to a border that cannot be defended then they could just say “let’s just do away with it because its more trouble to try to defend than its worth.” With their Marxist rationale I can see them taking that position not too far down the road–especially since the three North American countries have already been having talks about how to merge with one another. You didn’t know that? The “news” media probably forgot to mention it. Not to worry, though, they’ll “forget” a lot more before they’re done.

Cliven Bundy’s “Racism” Is A Diversonary Tactic

by Al Benson Jr.

Just after I had posted yesterday’s article about the War of Northern Aggression being thrust upon the Western States, the Internet almost started glowing with new reports that rancher Cliven Bundy had been identified, by comments he made, as a flaming “racist.” As slow as the prostitute press was to pick up on his stand against federal tyranny the previous week, they literally jumped on the “racist” story before the teletype machines has stopped spitting it out. Their stories lit up the Internet and most “news” programs like a theater marquee.

This is the kind of stuff our “news” media literally drools over. They get a chance to make someone conservative, that they don’t much like, look bad. That makes their day. They get a chance to put their spin on something that was said by throwing around that politically correct “R” word–the one that’s supposed to scare everyone off and silence any legitimate dissent against their agenda and that of their Washington puppet masters.

I read some of Mr. Bundy’s comments and listened to the doctored video the media put out about his alleged “racist” comments. And I came away with a distinct impression, and it was this–this whole “racist’ situation was manufactured as a diversionary tactic to take the heat off the federal government for what they have been trying to do to Mr. Bundy and his family and, as it develops, a lot of other ranchers and landowners in the West, and to make Mr. Bundy look bad. It’s an old Marxist trick–condemn others and elevate yourself.

All of a sudden no one is concerned anymore about federal tyranny in Nevada Texas, or anywhere else. All they are concerned about is the Cliven Bundy is a “racist.” Nothing else matters anymore.  And if he is a “racist” (I use that term in quotes because it’s a term of Trotskyite origin, and therefore, a propaganda word) he probably deserves what the feds are doing to him because, after all, everyone knows that “racism” is the one unforgivable sin in the leftist litany of sins for propaganda use. Abortion is just fine with them. Murder might be okay.  Sodomy will always get a free pass, but “racism” cannot be countenanced under any circumstances–anything is forgivable to the left but “racism.” And even that might be forgivable, depending on who’s practicing it. Black racism is okay. White racism is totally beyond the pale. This is Cultural Marxism to the fullest degree and guaranteed to shut down most debate. And it usually works.

Look at how these “neo-patriot” conservative politicians lined up to protest what the feds were doing to Mr. Bundy–until the “racist” angle was put forth. To a man they all tucked tail and ran, loudly disavowing their support for Bundy as they headed for the woodwork. Even Rand Paul, who I would have thought better of, played the game and withdrew his support.  I was talking with someone about this just today and they said to me “Rand is not his father.” He sure ain’t! I’m beginning to wonder if he’s even a pale imitation.

I don’t pretend to be privy to all Mr. Bundy’s views on the race question, but one thing is for certain sure, the problem with federal tyranny in the West is still there. It still remains, but now, it will probably be pushed aside and forgotten in favor of the race card being played.

Someone sent me this article today, which I thought was worth quoting from because it is so typical of what the “news” media does. It was on and it stated: “As media are blasting Bundy for the remarks and politicians are running away from Bundy as quickly as they can, the full context of what Cliven Bundy said has not been reported on. Here is the full 3:19 of his statement. It is worth listening to the comments about Hispanics which were conveniently removed from the videos being played by mainstream media.” I can’t reproduce the video on this blog spot, but go to the source and watch it and listen.

And then, Mr. Swann asks “Why were the comments about ‘Spanish’ people not included in media coverage? The answer is simple. What Cliven Bundy says there does not fit the narrative of a racist. In fact, some people could call him a ‘liberal’ when he says that even if illegal immigrants have ‘violated our Constitution, they are here and they are people’ when he says that Hispanics ‘have a stronger family structure than many of us white people’, and when he says ‘don’t tell me they don’t work and they don’t pay taxes.’ Those comments would strike many ‘conservatives’ as being too sympathetic toward Hispanic immigrants.” And of course, such comments, if aired, would blow the phoney race card out of the water, so the media just leaves them out. The public doesn’t need to be aware of all that–doctored videos for a bemused audience. So typical of the Ministry of Propaganda we still refer to as the “news media.”

I remember, back in 1999, my wife and I went to a Confederate Alliance Conference in Charleston, South Carolina, and, being the kind of conference it was, we had Confederate flags of different kinds on the walls of the meeting hall. The “news” media came in during the late afternoon and interviewed the man responsible for the conference.  All the media wanted to talk about was Nazi’s and white supremacists. The man they interviewed took great pains to explain to them that Nazi’s, skinheads, and the white supremacy people were not what we were all about, and they were not welcome at our meeting. It had nothing to do with any of that. The “news” media people didn’t want to hear that. Every single question they asked the man they interviewed eventually worked its way back to the white supremacy angle. That’s the only thing the “news” people were there to deal with–and if that wasn’t what we were all about, they were darn well going to make sure everybody thought that’s what we were about.

The exact same game is being played with Mr. Bundy–to make him look bad and to discourage support for him so the feds would look much better than they really are and Mr. Bundy and the ranchers would look worse than they really are. It’s all a clever diversion, folks. Don’t buy it!

Why Is It Only A Crime If The Perp Is White???

by Al Benson Jr.

Back on November 24, 2013 a white man from the Houston, Texas area knocked an elderly black man down and broke his jaw in two places. It was said that he laughed and shouted “knockout” as he did this.

The man, a twenty-seven year old, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Houston for a hate crime against the elderly black man. No one argues against the fact that this was a despicable act and that the man should be punished for what he did. However, if he shouted “knockout” when he did it, where do you suppose he got the idea for calling it that? It couldn’t have been from blacks that have done the same thing to whites could it? If anyone has kept track of the news for the past few months you know that’s exactly where he got the idea. I don’t know how many cases of this same dastardly act I’ve read about in recent months where a black, or blacks, have done this selfsame thing to some elderly white person and that’s what they call it–knockout! Of course, thanks to our progressive “news” media, we didn’t read about nearly as many of these black on white crimes as actually happened. Many of the stories about these were simply spiked and you never heard about it, but you did hear about some.

At this point, I have a couple questions which I hope my readers will ask at every opportunity. This one white man did this to one black man and it was labeled a “hate crime.” What was it labeled when all the different black guys did it to elderly white folks? I never once, in the “news” media saw that labeled as a hate crime. Why not?

If it’s a “hate crime” when a white guy does it then why isn’t it a hate crime when a black guy does it? Nobody seems to want to deal with that question. Why not? Seems to me that what’s sauce for the goose should be sauce for the gander. If it isn’t then we have a monstrous double standard we are operating on in this country, or maybe you hadn’t noticed that.

If it’s a hate crime when the white guy commits it, then why isn’t it a hate crime when the black guy commits it? I have yet to see that question even addressed by anyone. Most of what passes for our “news” media sincerely hopes no one will think along those lines and that no one will ask such embarrassing  questions, especially not in public. Of course should someone dare to address this sensitive issue they can always be labeled a “racist.” That should shut most folks up right there.

But it won’t shut all of us up! Of course I realize there are some whacked-out college professors that glibly inform us that “only white people can be racist” and no one else ever could. But, folks, in all honesty, who really believe that bovine fertilizer except the most politically correct of the politically correct? Ordinary folks that live in the real world just don’t buy it. They may not argue over it for fear of being labeled as “racists” but in their heart of hearts they know it’s all balderdash.

So I keep asking–why is it “racist” for a white man to do something when it is not racist for a black man to do the same thing? I have never forgotten the missionary from South Africa I talked to years ago who said, of blacks, that they were “the most ethnocentric people in the world.”

If that is, in fact, the case (and I realize there are exceptions) then you have to ask yourself–who are the real “racists?” Since the term “racist” is of Trotskyite origin I don’t really like to use it. Maybe the term “racialist” would be more appropriate.

So who is the real racialist? Is it just possible that it’s the person who accuses everyone else of being one?
