AND MICHAEL MOORE IS NOT
“. . . . What’s happened is is that we’ve allowed a vast majority of that cash to be concentrated in the hands of just a few people. . . . They’re sitting on the money, they’re using it for their own – they’re putting it someplace else, they have no interest in helping you with your life, with that money. We’ve allowed them to take that. That’s not theirs, that’s a national resource, that’s ours. . . . I think we need to go back to taxing these people at the proper rates. They need to – we need to see these jobs as something that we own, that we collectively own as Americans and you can’t just steal our jobs and take them someplace else.”
Moore understands his money is not his so he is not a racist. Tea Partiers, who are like you and me, mistakenly believe the wealth they have earned, or, for that matter, inherited, is theirs to leave to children or church. No! That is a racist view! Look at this Kenneth T. Walsh description of an Obama conversation in his new book, Family of Freedom:
In May 2010, he told guests at a private White House dinner that race was probably a key component in the rising opposition to his presidency from conservatives, especially right-wing activists in the anti-incumbent “Tea Party” movement that was then surging across the country. Many middle-class and working-class whites felt aggrieved and resentful that the federal government was helping other groups, including bankers, automakers, irresponsible people who had defaulted on their mortgages, and the poor, but wasn’t helping them nearly enough, he said.
A guest suggested that when Tea Party activists said they wanted to “take back” their country, their real motivation was to stir up anger and anxiety at having a black president, and Obama didn’t dispute the idea. He agreed that there was a “subterranean agenda” in the anti-Obama movement-a racially biased one-that was unfortunate. But he sadly conceded that there was little he could do about it.
It was the lefts reaction to the Tea Parties that helped me see that the label racist has been fixed on conservatives who resist Government takeover of private wealth and resources. Other than Obamacare, the Tea party concern has been government spending and taxes. Se this must be the basis used to label them Racist. I realized it applies to you and me as well.
I went through life confident I was not a racist. Now, in this age of Obama, we have an all race all the time country. My attitude was, “Talk to the hand, the face ain’t listenin’.” But, in these past days, I can see for the first time, I AM A RACIST.
You see, I have believed my labor and my property were mine, not the government’s. I had not understood that this faulty thinking is RACIST. But, I can now see that my labor and my property are the government’s. When I am allowed to keep anything, it is out of the generosity of Obama-Reid-Pelosi-NAACP-etc. So I now know RACIST is not about race at all but is simply the foremost of the pejoratives used by thieves, as an excuse, to put their hand in my pocket.
When I accept this completely, I, perhaps, will be absolved of my RACISM. White RACISTS, like me, are generally found to be less despicable than the great patriot, Justice Clarence Thomas. You may know that Thomas is the most hated black in America.
There may be no more highly charged label than racist. I was very encouraged with the progress we had made in putting the charge of racism and, more importantly, racism itself behind us. Then —the 2008 campaign. Former President Clinton was the first to have the “race card played on me.” But in the past two years, the racist charge from the left has swept down on us like a North Dakota February blizzard. Needless to say, Mr. Martin did not reply.
