We must fight this demagoguery with all of our might and courage.
Joe Biden was right about one thing Tuesday in his speech to mark the 100th anniversary of the 1921 attack on a Tulsa black community. Remembering this tragic event should have happened sooner. Why didn’t Barack Obama do it?
Biden could have used the anniversary to bring healing, remind the audience of all the progress that has been made in our country and point to a future where Martin Luther King’s dream of a color-blind society could be finally accomplished.
He did the opposite. He used the anniversary to pick on the scab of racial discord. He picked at it until it bled again. We can thank God there was no race riot in Tulsa Tuesday night.
Biden lied. Repeatedly. His lies were the lies of a demagogue. They were the lies of a man who sees political gain for his party and the left, in increasing hatred and in labeling their political opponents as racists. Here’s just a few of his lies:
Biden claimed he just wanted to make sure that we teach our children all of America’s history — the good and the bad. If that is what he wants why was one of his first official acts in office to disband the 1776 Commission whose whole purpose was to acknowledge our historic mistakes and defend our glorious history and progress?
Why does he give “aid and comfort” to the 1619 Project that falsely argues the United States began that year when the first African slave was brought here, not in 1776 when we won our independence? That fake history along with Marxist critical race theory will destroy our country if we lose the battle to keep it out of our schools.
He barely bothers to conceal his political goal of using the mercurial issue of race to damage conservatives. There is no other explanation for this comparison of the Tulsa riot with the January 6th turmoil on Capitol Hill. Biden shamelessly cites the events on that day as evidence of “white supremacy.” But he doesn’t stop there. The efforts in multiple states to safeguard the integrity of our election laws are cited by Biden as “echoes of the same problem.”
Biden said the U.S. intelligence community has concluded that white supremacy represents the greatest domestic threat to our homeland. If they really believe that they should be fired. This is one of the most racially diverse countries in the world. We are the only majority white country that has elected a black president. On the very day Biden engaged in his racial demagoguery, thousands of people of color crossed our border. Yet we are supposed to believe they are risking everything to come to a country of white supremacists?
In Biden’s America it is still 1619. Or maybe it is 1850? Or is it the era of Jim Crow laws? There is no progress. No Martin Luther King. No civil rights movement. No integration. If Biden was right the whole country should take a knee when our national anthem is played.
Biden’s race baiting and the steady drum beat of anti-American rhetoric from the political left is killing the love of our country in the hearts of our children. No enemy of the U.S. — not in Beijing or Moscow or Tehran — can harm us more than the “Put America Last” crowd is harming us with their message of hate and tribalism.
We must fight this demagoguery with all of our might and courage. An alliance is forming already, and it is multi-racial. Most of our fellow citizens, regardless of color, want to live in peace with each other in a country we love and that is worthy of our love. Most Americans realize that we are imperfect, but we are also better than virtually any other existing nation now or in the past.
If America is laid low by a foreign foe or destroyed internally by the leftist termites eating away at our foundation, the world would sink into another dark age.
We must make our stand here.
