I continued with a secondary premise that racism was being used to “cover up” treasonous acts.
These treasonous acts were the burning down and looting of our cities and the tearing down or removing statues that honored early American founders. Of course, defining the looting of our cities and defiling of our monuments are treasonous in my opinion. Some might call it vandalism. I strongly feel that such acts far exceed acts of vandalism.
I wrote that some of our early founders, such as Washington and Jefferson, owned slaves. I further wrote that our attitude toward slavery had changed for the better over centuries. Contemporary thinking about slavery is far different than conquering Roman armies and even as recently as 200 years ago. There is no doubt in my mind that racism is a direct descendant of slavery. However, to hold our founding fathers to the same standards as today seems at least unfair. Our feelings of today are not the same feelings as 300 years ago. Of course, 2000 years ago, it was an accepted way of doing business. Presumably, we have improved over 2000 years.
The fight against racism is a noble fight. However, racism still exists in totalitarian societies, such as China, North Korea, and probably to a lesser degree in most Socialist dominated countries. The freedom loving countries have banned slavery and are working on eliminating racism. This is where treason enters the picture.
Some very clever people have taken the noble cause of defeating racism and wrapped it around a plot to take control of American society away from its citizens. They use an old Roman army trick: Divide and conquer. What a better way to deceive and manipulate than take a noble cause and use it as an excuse for burning, looting, and destroying its history. To me, burning and looting our cities, as well as destroying our history is TREASON. It far exceeds vandalism…..unpunished vandalism, to boot. I fault leftist mayors and governors for such permission as this. Again, my opinion.
These same clever advocates of treason have coined a remarkably interesting term: “useful idiots.” What does that mean? Let’s take a look. How can an idiot be “useful?” Well, he/she might have the right to vote. The clever ones need your vote. However, they do not want you to be smart enough to figure out what they are doing with your vote. Therefore, the term “useful idiot.” It is a rare display of leftist honesty.
Well, my post seemed to trigger a fair amount of response. I am happy to report that, by far, it was favorable. Some negative responses varied from indications that my post was not read at all, to the post should not be shared with seniors. Apparently, it was felt that seniors were too old to think.
I think the responses were for good stimulating discussion. That is what the post was intended to do. Further, after reading discussions, I have not changed my opinion one iota.
Let’s play a game. On the blog site, I have written articles going back to February 2014. Too many to count. Also, there are many, many Facebook posts I have made. I invite you to review all postings, blog site and Facebook, and for every line you can find in which I supported racism or slavery, I will pay you $100.00. On the other hand, for every line I find in which I denounced racism or slavery, you pay me $100.00. Please sign up. My retirement account could always use some help.
