End The War On Racism…

 

This is a column of  sheer Wisdom and insight from Daniel Greendfield,aka Sultan Knish, of Frontpagemag.com- Pas Bill

 

 

We’ve all but given up on the War on Drugs and the War on Terror has been scaled down to a few drones occasionally taking out a gang of Jihadis in Pakistan or Yemen.

Even the original kind of non-metaphorical war has been slashed to the bone with the military barely having enough metal left to scare off a flock of crows.

But the War on Racism has never ended. And it will never end.

The left has claimed that the War on Terror and the War on Drugs and even every real war were pretexts by the military-industrial complex, the prison industry and all the other industries to seize power by manufacturing a crisis.

But they are the ones who maintain a state of racial emergency long after the crisis has passed.

According to them, terrorism and crime are imaginary crises. Racism is the real threat. We have been fighting the War on Racism for over a century and even though the United States is less racist and more tolerant than most of the world, including Latin America, Asia and Africa, they are determined to keep the war going.

The Sterling case is only the latest production of racial outrage theater in which a minor incident that usually involves someone privately or semi-privately expressing a politically incorrect opinion that most people disagree with, but that they have the right to express, is blown up into a crisis with non-stop media coverage, political pressure and a ritual beheading.

These cases are not about punishing the powerful. Donald Sterling might be a wealthy and powerful man, but Justine Sacco wasn’t. The purges are opportunistic. Sterling dodged a racial bullet for years until his private conversation was taped and publicized. The next Sterling or Sacco might be anyone.

And that’s the larger message. It’s not about tolerance; it’s about a wave of political terror.

The War on Racism has deprived Americans of more civil rights than any military conflict. Whatever crisis in race relations once existed has gone away. Slavery was abolished. Segregation was outlawed. Discrimination is easy to litigate.

Individuals will go on being only human and privately holding racist views, but it’s not the job of government to relentlessly purge thoughtcrimes. At least it’s not the job of our government.

A privatized Oceania with a crowdsourced Ministry of Truth pursuing violators across social media is in its own way every bit as putrid. Denunciations and purges polarize a society, destroy dissent and invariably lead to tyranny because witch hunters have a vested interest in manufacturing witches.

A nation run by witch hunters will always keep finding more old women to burn at the stake and a society dominated by social justice warriors will always find ways to aggravate racial tensions.

Like the good people of Salem, we have allowed bitter and unhinged demagogues to bully us into empowering them. Our good intentions, our aspirations for a tolerant and post-racial society, have been exploited to drag us into an endless war that we never wanted.

In the name of good, we have empowered evil. And we cannot accomplish good ends through evil means. We cannot end racial hatred through more racial hatred. We cannot fight racial discrimination through more racial discrimination. We can’t protect civil rights by violating civil rights.

And we cannot learn to love each other by spreading hate.

A paranoid society perpetually at war with itself has no future. Healthy societies debate issues. They don’t destroy people who disagree with them. And they don’t reward demagogues who spend all their time calling for the heads of their enemies on social media and MSNBC.

This isn’t about racism. It’s about the kind of society we want.

Do we want a liberal society, in the original sense, that is tolerant because it allows for a range of views, or do we want a fascist society that claims to be both liberal and tolerant while maintaining the atmosphere of France’s Reign of Terror and Salem’s witch trials?

The War on Racism has had its good days, but those days are long gone. Instead the War on Racism generates most of the racism around us.

The stories about racism that crowd into our eyes and ears are manufactured outrages aimed at individuals. These are not stories about the problems that black people face, but a political civil war between mostly white elites who use the suffering of black people as weapons.

The racial grievance industry perpetuates racism for the sake of power. It manufactures racism, distributes racism and then demands racial remedies for the problems that it creates. Racism has become a false flag operation that is being kept going by the social justice warriors who claim to be fighting it tooth and nail.

The mandate of the grievance industry isn’t healing, it’s outrage. It is open about seeking a perpetual state of racial conflict.

Operating under radical left wing views that would have disgusted the civil rights leaders of the past, they insist that racism is a collective racial crime, that white people are racist by birth, that black people are incapable of racism and that a racist society cannot be healed, only destroyed.

If they can’t find actual racism, they seek out “micro-aggressions” expanding the scope of things that they take offense at to perpetuate their political privilege.

This amounts to a justification for perpetual war and unlimited power.

Do we need an endless War on Racism that violates our civil rights and promotes the very thing that it claims to be fighting against? Is racism today such a grave threat that we should accept the endless militarization of our society?

The Supreme Court over the decades has stepped down the legal basis for the War on Racism concluding that race is no longer a major crisis that justifies the violation of civil rights. But the race warriors ignore the progress that has been made and demand even more extreme measures that were not even contemplated when fighting against actual segregation.

Having been thwarted at the legal level, they are launching social attacks or ignoring the law. Under Holder, the Department of Justice has begun making and enforcing its own laws without regard to the judiciary. This state of authoritarian lawlessness has fascist overtones and it’s a sign of worse things to come.

Instead of escalating the War on Racism, it’s time to end it.

The War on Racism has gone on too long. So long that like all wars it has become self-perpetuating. The strategies of the War on Racism do not serve reconciliation or healing. They do not teach us to live with one another. Like all wars, they teach only conflict.

Obama’s election was supposed to promote racial healing. Instead he and his cronies chose to use it to further racial divides for their own power. And that is the final lesson of the War on Racism.

A post-racial society can never emerge under the leadership of men and women whose power comes from the exploitation of racism. If we are going to move beyond racism, it will not be through rewarding those who profit from racial conflict.

Once we step out of their shadow, we can begin tackling the problems of black communities instead of using them as weapons against each other. We can deal with black unemployment and the black family. We can deal with the real problems that are keeping people down.

Peace in the War on Racism begins with letting go of anger. It ends when we stop giving power to those who divide us with their pursuit of racial warfare in the name of grievance, outrage, anger, power and profit. Racism will only end when the War on Racism does.

    What does this diatribe have to do with Jesus Christ and his glorious gospel? As Christians our comission is to preach the gospel so that men and women might be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth. We are not commanded to strive against flesh and blood politicians and their darkened understanding of what is good and evil. They are dead in trespasses and sins against God and walking according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, and are by nature children of wrath. I am truly dismayed by the earthly focus of this post. If you love His truth, please preach it so that men and women may be saved. They have no other hope.

      Daniel, I share what I think is interesting and true. I do preach the gospel, constantly. I also shine the light of truth on whatever deceptions are being used to blind, and divide people needlessly. John te Baptist called out Herod on his wife, I have no problem calling out our cultural leadrrs and opinion shapers on their phony war on “Racism”by which they divide and keep captive a good share of our population in artificially contrived ‘crisis’, keeping them sealed and locked off in a ghetto of hatred. Truth is truth brother. For every one of these articles I post, I have posted dozens of gospel artiles. Thanks for the comment though, feel free to contact me of you need any other clarification- I value your input and fellowship-

    So true…keep shining that light brother. I am overjoyed to see that the Lord has brought you home safe and sound.

    God bless.

    • Daniel says:

      I praise and thank the Lord for his servants, my brethren. May the God of our fathers bless you with his grace and peace brother.

    Racism as I see it is between the race of Adam fallen and the race of Jesus reconciled back to God. There are really only two races. You are of your father the devil or you are of your FATHER GOD. Hence fourth no amount of do gooder’s will change, it’s up to the church to manifest the truth because they are the voice of God.

  4. Daniel says:

    “Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division.” Luke 12:51. “Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers,a you have no need to have anything written to you. For (if you are His) you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “THERE IS PEACE AND SECURITY,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.” 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 (parenthetical added). Let him who hath ears hear.
