The Patriot Post® · Cancel These Democrat Racists
“The nation which indulges towards another an habitual hatred, or an habitual fondness, is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest.” —George Washington (1796)
Amid all the woke “cancel culture” desecration and destruction of our nation’s history, it’s apparent that our “higher educational institutions” have succeeded in dumbing down most of the Millennial generation of privileged white leftists. The latest targets of these oh-so-woke BLM “Burn, Loot, Murder” cadres of black supremacists and their white frontline agitators are organizations with any remote connection to long-past racist or racial insensitivity.
Demonstrating their monumental ignorance, they’ve gone after iconic brands like the NFL’s Redskins, the Broadway hit “Hamilton,” those universities founded by racists, and so much more. Dennis Prager adds: “Uncle Ben, Aunt Jemima, Ulysses Grant, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, ‘whitening’ agents, meritocracy, Western culture and Christianity.”
In that spirit, here are a few additional organizations that require immediate cancellation — but won’t receive it. As it turns out, leftist “cancel culture” is very selective, and when it comes to their political advocates and Leftmedia propagandists, they get a pass.
For example, it’s time to cancel The New York Times.
The Times is the epicenter of Leftmedia print propagandists, the true “enemy of the people.” So corrupt has the Gray Lady become that, last week, a highly regarded contributing editor and writer, Bari Weiss, resigned in protest. Apparently, she’d finally had enough of being called a Nazi, a racist, and a bigot by her own colleagues.
In other words, the cancel-culture crowd loves the Times. And what’s not to love? Having received a Pulitzer puff trophy for staff racist Nikole Hannah-Jones’s shoddy 1619 pseudo-history, this week the editors announced they would further appease the “anti-racist” racists by capitalizing the “B” in black but not the “W” in white, whenever making the racial distinction.
Now that’s white privilege!
Of course, the 1619 Project is a political agenda, not a history curriculum. The accurate history of slavery should be taught in our schools, including the fact that in the 19th century, it was countries under White leadership, Britain, France and the United States, which abolished slavery within their nations. What young people really need to know is that today, there are more than 700,000 people enslaved in the sub-Saharan Africa – by Black slavers – more than twice the number of slaves brought to North America in the 1800s.
It’s interesting that this decision came in the same week that New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin published this inconvenient truth: “The family that owns the New York Times were slaveholders.”
Oops. Turns out that Bertha Levy Ochs, mother of Times founder Adolph Ochs, was an advocate for slavery and her family owned slaves. Ochs, who started the Chattanooga Times before he bought the failing New York Times, wrote in 1900 that the racist Democrat Party “may justly insist that the evils of negro suffrage were wantonly inflicted on them.” He funded Confederate monuments, including the Stone Mountain Memorial to Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson, and Robert E. Lee. Regarding his mother’s affinity for the latter, he wrote, “Robert E. Lee was her idol.”
Further, in a 1900 editorial, “The Political Future of the South,” the editors declared: “The Republican Party committed a great public crime when it gave the right of suffrage to the blacks. So long as the Fifteenth Amendment stands, the menace of the rule of the blacks will impend, and the safeguards against it must be maintained.”
Cancel ‘em, or at least distribute the NYT’s company stock to their former slaves’ descendants. After all, the Times’s 1619 Project asserts that the nation was founded on the backs of slaves.
And how about that other paragon of journalistic objectivity, The Washington Post?
I was amused to see that the WaPo ran a column on Washington and Lee University last week, asserting, “Both namesakes of Washington and Lee University perpetrated racial terror. The school should be renamed.” That would be George Washington and Robert E. Lee. So I guess if one’s organization includes just one name of a person who “perpetrated racial terror” — like, say, the WASHINGTON Post — then it’s OK to keep the name?
On to bigger racist targets — the cancel-culture mob should go after Planned Parenthood, which has, for almost a century, targeted millions of preborn black babies “to create a race of thoroughbreds” and keep America white!
As you might recall, the atheist social activist and leftist icon Margaret Sanger, who founded the American Birth Control League in 1921, which changed its name to Planned Parenthood in 1942, was an abject racist. Sanger blamed ministry to the poor, a fundamental tenet of Christianity, for excessive numbers of “unwanted” ethnic breeds.
According to Sanger: “Those vast, complex, interrelated organizations aiming to control and to diminish the spread of misery and destitution and all the menacing evils that spring out of this sinisterly fertile soil, are the surest sign that our civilization has bred, is breeding, and is perpetuating constantly increasing numbers of defectives, delinquents, and dependents. My criticism, therefore, is not directed at the failure of philanthropy, but rather at its success. These dangers are inherent in the very idea of humanitarianism and altruism, dangers which have today produced their full harvest of human waste.”
Ah, yes, “human waste.” She advocated policies that ensured “more children from the fit, less from the unfit” in order to “to create a race of thoroughbreds.” Of black people, Sanger wrote, “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
That explains why the PP abortion mills end the lives of a grossly disproportionate number of black babies. In fact, more than 20 million black children have been aborted, which is more than the entire black population in America during the 1960s Civil Rights movement. But don’t let “any of their more rebellious members” know about it.
No small irony that its most vociferous defender, The New York Times, announced Tuesday that [Planned Parenthood is officially trying to distance itself from its racist history. That only took 99 years!
Too late. Cancel ‘em!
And what about the right of women to vote? What, you say?
After the War Between the States, the Suffragettes turned on Frederick Douglass for daring to suggest they should support the 15th Amendment, which gave black men full citizenship and equal rights under the law, including the right to vote.
In 1869, Susan B. Anthony let her racist sentiments shine, chastising Douglass: “If you will not give the whole loaf of justice to the entire people … then give it first to women, to the most intelligent and capable portion of the women.” But certainly not to black women…
In fact, Anthony and her Suffragette partner, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, also refused to support the 14th Amendment. Stanton wrote Douglass, “Think of Sambo who does not know the difference between a Monarchy and a republic, who never read the Declaration of Independence or Webster’s spelling book, making laws for educated refined women … the daughters of Adams and Jefferson.” Stanton’s position was that the black woman would be better off as an educated white man’s slave than be free with a black man.
In the 1913 Great Women’s Suffrage Parade in Washington, Alice Paul, the organizer, decreed the parade must be segregated and insisted that black women in attendance march at the rear. Declared Paul, “I believe a large part if not the majority of our marchers will refuse to participate if negroes in any number form part of the parade.”
Time to cancel women’s right to vote!
In reality, the fact is the contemporary “anti-racist” mobs and their propagandists should be canceled first.
Hans Bader, a legal scholar and author, makes the case that “'Anti-racism’ is racism in disguise,” at Liberty Unyielding, noting: “America’s colleges, media, and cultural institutions are being swept by the ideology of ‘anti-racism.’ It openly advocates racial discrimination against white people, and promotes bigoted, lower expectations for black people. ‘Rationality’ and ‘hard work’ are vestiges of racism, declared the ‘anti-racism’ web site of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. It claimed that virtues like ‘hard work,’ ‘self-reliance,’ being ‘polite,’ and being on time are all a product of the ‘white dominant culture.’ So, too, are normal grammar, the scientific method, and its emphasis on ‘objective, rational linear thinking,’ according to a chart the Smithsonian posted.”
He notes further: “Being an ‘anti-racist’ means advocating discrimination to transform society. The bible of ‘anti-racism’ is ‘How to Be an Antiracist,’ by Boston University’s Ibram X. Kendi. The ‘key concept’ from How to Be an Antiracist is that to remedy the underrepresentation of minority groups, you need to engage in discrimination in the opposite direction — i.e., discriminate against whites. … Dr. Kendi’s views are celebrated by the Washington Post and the New York Times. The Times touts Kendi’s axiom that ‘When I see racial disparities, I see racism.’”
Finally, no cancel-fest would be complete without noting the granddaddy of all racist organizations — the Democrat Party itself!
Recently, Demo candidate Joe Biden came up out of his basement and declared: “White supremacy should be rooted out and relegated to the pages of history — not promoted by the President of the United States.”
Given the violent racist history of the Democrat Party, shouldn’t any and all references to it be “canceled” and stricken from history — and anyone associated with this racist party tarred and feathered?
Democrats were, are, and will continue to be the architects of black oppression.
Republicans emancipated black people in the 19th century. After the War Between the States, Democrats became the party of racist oppression for the next century. And in the 55 years since the beginning of the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s, the abject policy failure of the Democrats’ so-called “Great Society” is still enslaving black people on what amount to socialist urban poverty plantations.
And, no, the old racist Democrats didn’t “switch to the Republican Party” in the 1960s – a canard propagated by today’s Demos. Those racists formed the foundation of the Democrat Party and its, effort to divide Americans along every line, racial, ethnic, gender, etc., in order to win elections. Obama mastered that “divide and conquer” strategy in 2008, and Biden is attempting to replicate that reprehensible ruse.
The Democrat Party is still run by wealthy white leftists, and their policies still oppress black people. Their ‘anti-racism’ is racism in disguise, and their pandering and patriarchal treatment of Americans based on the color of their skinr is disgraceful.
Demonstrably, the Democrat Party is now, simultaneously, the author and beneficiary of its subjugation of generations of poor Americans under their systemic racism and systemic poverty, which they both seeded and institutionalized over the last century.
Cancel ‘em all!
