FLOWER MOUND, TX — February 13, 2020 — Anyone watching the Democrat debates would get the impression that blacks represent the majority of the country’s population. Almost every question was answered with some appeal to black voters, while whites seemed to be taken for granted. Ironically, all of those appeals to blacks were coming from a field of exclusively white candidates. One wonders; if there was a black candidate on that stage would he/she be making an appeal to whites? Given that whites are about 85% of the voters in this republic; why are Democrats leaving them out of the equation? Because the white vote is more diversified, tending to vote on issues other than race. Contrarily, most blacks have been conditioned to vote for those who specifically talk about how much they’ll do to help those with dark pigmentation in their skin.
When Barack Obama, a dark-skinned guy, ran against John McCain, a light-skinned guy, he received almost 100% of the black vote. Of course, if whites had voted along the same lines, McCain would have won in a landslide. The same would have happened when Obama ran against Romney. As we all know, a large percentage of whites voted to elect and reelect Obama over his light-complexioned rivals. Those plebiscites spoke volumes about the magnanimity of the white voter. Even those like me, who didn’t vote for Obama, could feel good about the fact that another milestone had been reached, proving that we are not a racist country.
However, that didn’t sit well with those liberals and other race-hustlers who have built their careers based on the continuation of a coast-to-coast color-conflict. If you had dared to say that race-discrimination had become a vague apparition in the rearview mirror, you’d be, you guessed it, a racist! For generations, Democrats have been convincing blacks that they are still slaves to a white power structure; therefore, they need the condescending caress of government largess to improve their vacuous lives. The message coming from those Caucasian Democrats is that most whites are bad, so, blacks need some good whites to watch over them. Naturally, those fair-skinned faces peering over the podiums are the good whites.
And, how are they going to watch over them? By giving them more free stuff. “We need reparations for blacks,” shouts one. “Those reparations should be retroactive,” yells another, as each desperate demagogue tries to outdo the other. If you were to ask them how we’d pay for all that munificence there’d be an awkward silence followed by a stammering assortment of empty rhetoric designed to confuse the audience long enough to move on to another topic. The same is true for any issue for which they don’t have a sensible response. When a moderator has the temerity to press them for answers, here’s what it might sound like.
Question: “Estimates are that free healthcare for illegal aliens would cost about $60 trillion. How could our country afford that? Answer: “We are a compassionate nation that should not deprive people of adequate medical treatment, regardless of their immigration status.” “With all due respect sir, that doesn’t answer the question,” counters the moderator. “There simply isn’t enough money in the world to pay that bill.” At that point the candidate resorts to pure emotion as his voice begins to rise to a crescendo while he stabs at the air with his forefinger. “The Statue of Liberty says give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”
That’s when I’d give a month’s salary to see a whipped cream pie hit him in the face. Not only would that be a moment of comic relief during this histrionic psychodrama, it would make an indelible imprint on the consciousness of millions of people who watch these sanctimonious clowns pretend to be capable leaders. Whipped cream pies just might become symbolic of the unctuously sappy politician who needs an occasional splat in the puss.
