The Real Racists

Tuesday, 20 September 2005 12:00 AM

You could call it hypocrisy, but that wouldn't even begin to describe the real nature of the evil involved when some of the most vile, uncaring exploiters of our poor and black brothers and sisters have the gall to call others racists.

Look, we all know what Christ told us – that we will always have the poor among us – but not in the wildest stretch of our imaginations can we believe that he was sanctioning efforts to make sure that fact remains true.

Yet that is exactly what we've been witnessing: a cynical, calculated and, tragically, largely successful campaign to keep the poor in their place – which is on the welfare lines, utterly dependent on Big Brother to keep bread on their tables, and therefore to keep Big Brother in power.

There is nothing new about this. Roman politicians kept the poor and powerless under their thumbs for centuries by providing the proverbial bread and circuses paid for out of the public treasury, or on the backs of the people abroad living under the thumb of the tax collectors of Pax Romana.

What we have today, however, is a more widespread and sophisticated version of the bread-and-circuses scam – one that for generations has been employed by members of the party that tries to portray itself as the party of the people. And to them the people are

I am not going to make any effort to display even a modicum of Christian charity when it comes to dealing with this despicable filth who for generations now have managed to perpetuate poverty among a segment of our population as a means to amass and hang on to political power.

They are racists of the most heinous kind – and hypocrites to boot, daring to call racists those who recognize and oppose the deadly effects of the bread-and-circuses policies that have paraded as vast and compassionate welfare programs.

In his recent column, Pat Buchanan used the words of an all-but-canonized saint of the Democrat hierarchy, Franklin D. Roosevelt, to explain the deadening effect of the policies adopted by his own party over the years to keep the poor poor and themselves invested with political power.

"Continued dependence" upon welfare, said FDR "induces a spiritual disintegration fundamentally destructive to the national fiber. To dole [out] relief in this way is to administer a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit."

We have just seen a graphic demonstration of the truth of that observation in what happened in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina when tens of thousands of Americans were left to their own devices, temporarily deserted by big brother, and were barely able, if lucky, to survive the ordeal.

For generations they had been indoctrinated into believing that they were incapable of fending for themselves at the very basic level of daily survival – of providing their own food and shelter and medical care – and were somehow entitled to have all these necessities provided for them. When faced with an unexpected disaster of great magnitude, they were reduced to a level of absolute helplessness, exposed not only to the prospect of starvation or death by dehydration but also to the savagery of many among their number.

Here's how Pat put it: "At the Superdome and New Orleans Convention Center, we saw the failure of 40 years of the Great Society. No sooner had Katrina passed by and the 17th Street levee broke than hundreds of young men who should have taken charge in helping the aged, the sick and the women with babies to safety took to the streets to shoot, loot and rape."

What produced this horrific spectacle was what Roosevelt called the "spiritual disintegration fundamentally destructive to the national fiber," that afflicted the poor in New Orleans – and indeed inflicts them in slums and depressed areas all across the land.

As James Lewis has written, the poor of New Orleans have never known anything but welfare dependency, drugs and violence. "I would not be surprised if the political hacks send out an emergency call for them to come back, come back, get your welfare check!" He wrote. "You can't survive in crazy states like Texas. Because without their voters' deep belief in their own helplessness, the race-and-poverty-mongers are out of a job. The most egregious failures of New Orleans were those of people who have been taught to be mentally stuck in a flood that never ends."

Writing in the Intellectual Activist, "An Unnatural Disaster: A Hurricane Exposes the Man-Made Disaster of the Welfare State," Robert Tracinski observed:

"What we consider 'normal' behavior in an emergency is behavior that is normal for people who have values and take the responsibility to pursue and protect them. People with values respond to a disaster by fighting against it and doing whatever it takes to overcome the difficulties they face. They don't sit around and complain that the government hasn't taken care of them. And they don't use the chaos of a disaster as an opportunity to prey on their fellow men."

This is not their fault. They are victims and the heirs of several generations of victims, deliberately kept in a state of poverty and dependent by the likes of Teddy Kennedy, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Howard Dean and their welfare state cronies and Jesse Jackson, who uses the plight of America's poor blacks to exploit millions of dollars from corporations. Jackson needs the poor and black to remain poor; without them his scam collapses.

The brilliant Ron Marr, whose Trout Wrapper Web site is must reading, has written that "The poverty stricken and those without education (usually the same) have been dependent on government for over 40 years. They do not know how to function when forced to take care of themselves. If the poverty rate of New Orleans tells us anything, it tells us that the 'Great Society' project founded by Lyndon Johnson in the 1960s was a total failure. It tells us that proponents of welfare on a national scale, the state of Louisiana and alleged civil rights leaders prefer to sustain a problem rather than fix it. How better for them, these liberals, to keep their power base than by keeping the impoverished and ignorant impoverished and ignorant?"

There's no other way to say this, and it needs to be said loud and clear: New Orleans has shown that the race and poverty mongers Lewis wrote of – those conscienceless demagogues who make up the dominant wing of the Democrat Party – must be seen for what they are – not as mere political opportunists, but as being among the most evil human beings ever to afflict humanity. They are the scum of the earth.
