A strain of racism has developed in the liberal movement, says PJ Media co-founder and CEO Roger Simon.

Simon wrote a column in March that argued that social welfare programs initiated under President Lyndon Johnson and expanded over ensuing decades have created an ingrained sense of inferiority in African-Americans, making them dependent on those programs and making them a dependable bloc of voters for Democrats.

It's time for Republicans to go on offense by pointing out liberal racism and by actively seeking the black vote, Simon told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"[G]o into the black community and actually make your proposals," Simon said. "Don't be afraid. You know, a lot of people are ready to hear it. They know that the war on poverty hasn't worked. I mean, they can look around, they know it better than we do."

A similar ingrained racism has crept into the liberal view of Arabs, Simon said.

"Basically, white liberals are racist toward Arabs," he said. "Here's what I mean [when I say] they're racist: they treat [Arabs] like they're, in the awful world of the 10th-century British imperialists, like they're just wogs.

"Therefore, you have to be placated and treated like they're imbeciles instead of being treated like you would a Canadian or Dane or something. If those people were lobbing missiles into your country, you wouldn't treat them like that. But somehow, there's something about these people who are the 'wretched of the earth.' Actually they're not. They're just like us. Treat them like us," Simon said Monday.

Story continues below video.

The underpinning of liberal racism is fascism, he said, seen in the public outcry that ousted Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich just 11 days after it was revealed he had donated to support a 2008 state ballot initiative to ban same-sex marriage in California.

It's all part of a liberal fascist bent that began with the right ideas, he said, then went too far and essentially started feeding on itself – not unlike the acts of Maximilien Robespierre during the French Revolution or Che Guevara during the Cuban revolution. Both men led idealistic revolts against tyrannical regimes, then started killing off their supporters once they gained power.

Eich had every right to make a political contribution and not have it affect his career, Simon said.

"In fact, it's really pretty scary," Simon said. "That's crazy, that's not supposed to happen in America."
