The New Improved Kryptonite

Burt Prelutsky · Aug. 12, 2019

As we all know, in spite of being able to leap over tall buildings and fly faster than a speeding bullet, the one thing that could disable Superman was a green mineral from his home planet of Krypton.

It was his Achilles’ heel. In the wrong hands, usually those belonging to Lex Luthor, just being near the stuff could bring the super hero to his knees.

These days, the Democrats have come up with their own version of the toxic material, and fortunately for them, it is not in short supply. In fact, the more they use it, the more they have to use. I refer to the race card. All a Democrat has to do is call a Republican a racist, and the spineless creature will immediately assume the fetal position and begin whimpering like a lost kitten.

What makes it all the more pathetic is that the Liberals are always rushing to the defense of actual racists, white-baiting weasels like Kamala Harris, Elijah Cummings, Ilhan Omar, Cory Booker, Al Sharpton and Maxine Waters.

The major target of the attacks is, of course, Donald Trump. If the President doesn’t hear himself called a racist a dozen times before noon by Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer or one of the morons at CNN and MSNBC, he probably wonders if he’s gone deaf.

President Trump is apparently too much of a gentleman to mention it, so I’ll do it for him: for years, he was a Democrat and, as such, he donated a ton of money to his party’s candidates, including the Clintons, Harry Reid, Kirsten Gillibrand, Andrew Cuomo, Terry McAuliffe, Eliot Spitzer, Antony Weiner, Elizabeth Warren, Charles Rangel, John Kerry, Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

He also contributed to the campaigns of Republicans, but not as much or as often.

If he’s a racist, shouldn’t the holier-than-thou Democrats return his tainted money? Or did he only devolve for some mysterious reason after the schmucks cashed his checks?

If the Liberals want to claim the moral high ground, wouldn’t you think they’d censure the anti-Semitic shrews in the party, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, and investigate Elijah Cummings’ wife, Maya Rockeymoore? It seems she runs a family charity that just happened to vacuum up over $6 million in the last couple of years from such generous entities as Google, Prudential and J.P. Morgan, all companies that have business before the House committee her husband chairs.

Sounds a lot like the Clinton Foundation, doesn’t it?

But of course to even question what Mrs. Cummings does with the money or what motivated these outfits to make such generous donations when they could have sent those checks to the Salvation Army, and not set off any alarm bells, would be condemned as racist in certain quarters.

I think sometimes we Conservatives waste a lot of time trying to educate Liberals. We seem to assume they say the preposterous things they do because they don’t know any better when, in fact, everything they say and do is motivated by their hunger for power.

For instance, they know that gun-free zones are dangerous for that very reason. They’re quite aware that such places as schools, movie theaters and fair grounds like the one in Gilroy, California, where a 19-year-old creep recently killed three people and injured several others, act as magnets for criminals, terrorists and loons, because they know they can murder with impunity.

But that’s exactly what Liberals feed off. They will pretend they are shocked and that they mourn the loss of lives. But the truth is that if every so often they didn’t have a massacre, their campaign to disarm us all would run out of steam.

They know as well as anyone that most murders in this country are committed by black and Latino gangbangers, not by white dues-paying members of the NRA. But you never hear about mayors ordering the cops to go into urban neighborhoods and disarming the punks. It’s always those white taxpayers, the ones Barack Obama dismissed as those clinging to their guns and their religion, who are supposed to be denied the protection of the Second Amendment.

If they’re so terrified of guns in the wrong hands, why don’t they ever talk about outlawing cars? After all, people driving cars kill a lot more people than people firing guns. Why don’t big city mayors ever propose buying back cars from people, especially when everyone knows that people are far more likely to drive drunk than they are to shoot drunk?

For that matter, do you think for a minute that Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi believe that an endless flood of illegal aliens is good for America? It wasn’t that long ago that both of them wanted to keep them out. But that was before they realized their party was hemorrhaging white voters and needed to replace them.

They can talk all they like about a humanity crisis, but does anyone believe that if the hordes descending on our border voted overwhelmingly for Republicans, the Democrats would be rolling out the welcome mat for them?

I can promise you that Chuck and Nancy, along with Adam Schiff, Beto O'Rourke, Jerry Nadler, Corey Booker, Joe Biden, Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren and even old Bernie Sanders, would be down at the border not only building a big beautiful wall, but laying land mines.

If only hypocrisy could be converted to electricity, the Democrats could replace our need for fossil fuel all by themselves.

Because President Trump finally had enough of being pounded by the corrupt Elijah Cummings, he pointed out that Cummings, who has the kind of face that mothers are always warning their children not to make, lest they be stuck with it forever, should spend more time trying to improve the rat-infested district he allegedly represents.

For speaking the truth, hypocritical Democrats and spineless Republicans accused Trump of being a racist.

And yet three years ago, Sen. Bernie Sanders, after touring the district, said that it reminded him of a place he’d expect to come across in a third world country.

Last year, a camera crew accompanied then-Baltimore mayor Catherine Pugh as she walked the same mean streets and we all got to hear her comments, which ranged from “You can smell dead animals” and “What the hell is that?” to “Oh, my, look at those rats” and “We should just tear this shit down.”

Now that Trump has insulted the municipality, the Leftists are pretending it’s Reagan’s shining city on the hill. But the fact is there have already been over 180 homicides in Baltimore in the past seven months, making it the second most likely city in America in which to be murdered. But the good news is that St. Louis’s lead isn’t so huge that Baltimore can’t still overtake it by year’s end. It’s no secret that both murder capitals have been controlled by Democrats for decades. In fact, of the 10 most dangerous cities in America, all 10 are run by liberals. Of the top 20, 18 share that same common denominator.

One can feel pity for people in Russia, China, Iran and North Korea. They are the victims of the police states into which they were born. The same can’t be said for those who live in places like Baltimore, St. Louis, Chicago, Detroit, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Houston, Oakland, Minneapolis and Kansas City.

All those folks got to pick their poison. And, what’s more, they then kept lapping it up year after year, election after election.
