The elitist faction's cunning race fixation
By Alan Keyes
May 5, 2014

In a recent blog post, I discuss the slander offensive against Cliven Bundy spearheaded by a deceitful New York Times piece that used the age-old practice of selective quotation to smear him with the charge of racism. I wrote:
    Such campaigns were well-known in the history of the party dictatorships like the Old Soviet Union. The objective is to discourage and intimidate those who came to Bundy's defense. Once they are neutralized, the confrontation can safely be recommenced. Only this time, with a green light from the now supine U.S. Supreme Court, the outcome will be very different. Against demoralized opposition, the Obama faction will ruthlessly press its advantage in armed firepower to finish the test run of the government's shiny new power to assault, beat, or gun down grassroots people, with no semblance of due restraint. Or they'll just show up suddenly under cover of darkness to hustle the "racist" Bundy family into the night.

    Apparently, for pundits like Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity, the craven desire to "prove" that they aren't racists outweighs the decent alternative of waiting for better proof than a New York Times story before acting on the quite possibly slanderous report that Cliven Bundy is a racist. They might even have taken the time to read and think about his actual words (even the ones, taken out of context, in the NYT's slur.) Beck and Hannity are both intelligent enough to realize that even the NYT's malicious original report warranted doubts about whether Bundy was a) running down black Americans, or b) running down the terrible damage socialist "welfare" programs have done to the families and children of people in black American neighborhoods.
The post includes some insights into the nature of the racial fixation that, in my experience, characterizes much of the leadership in the supposedly "liberal" and "progressive" elitist faction, whatever party label they wear. Behind the mask of words and actions against racism, they hide profoundly racist attitudes and intentions. NBA owner Donald Sterling is just a case in point. Tragically, the mask they wear distracts from the fact that they advocate and help to carry out policies –
    that are gradually doing what slavery did not: grinding the black American community into oblivion with policies that promote self-extermination, crime, slave-like dependence on government, and communities governed by crime lords instead of the Lord God.... Instead of talking like racists [except when they think no one hears], they devise policies that fulfill the most evil dreams of racists by moving things along toward the day when the black American population has been cut back to a stump...which can easily be carted away. This is de facto racism, effectively accomplishing, on a large scale, what racist rhetoric only imagines.
The most egregious example of these policies is, of course, the targeted promotion of abortion in the black community. Throughout his career, Obama has shilled for this genocidal movement with fanatical zeal. Tacit support for it extends to the supposed "conservatives" who slyly do everything in their power to promote the view that defending the God-endowed unalienable right to life, and the rights of the natural family, is "divisive" and politically harmful. These "conservatives" even go so far as to embrace a view of the U.S. Constitution that denies its logical dependence on the acknowledgment of God-endowed rights featured in the American Declaration of Independence.

On account of my adamant refusal to stop applying the logic and principles of the Declaration, I became persona non grata in the GOP once it fell firmly under the effectively unchallenged control of leaders committed to the elitist faction's agenda. The evidence is now beyond conclusive that they are deeply committed to collaborating with Obama as he carries out the elitist faction's effort to overthrow the constitutional self-government of the American people. That's why, despite their repeated evocation of Obama's "lawless" activities, they adamantly refuse to do what's necessary to organize the nation's political will in order to apply the provisions of the Constitution that empower the American people to end his lawless tenure.

In this respect, they falsely evoke and manipulate the racial fixation. They pretend that Obama's black skin is some kind of magic cloak that prevents the nation from interfering with his systematic nullification of the Supreme Law of the Land. Thus slyly they manipulate the nation's conscience with respect to racial injustice to make cowards of us all, during the very time when the paralysis induced by that cowardice will assure the success of the elitist faction's bid to end our liberty (i.e., right-securing constitutional self-government).

On this National Day of Prayer, I pray that God will open the eyes, encourage the spirit, and enlighten the mind of the American people so that they will recognize and reject the "leaders" complicit in this assault on righteous liberty, whatever party label they wear. And so that they remember, instead, that God has provided the only leadership we need, dwelling in every heart that has accepted the word by which He fulfills His promise of salvation.
