Gaski: The Fili-busted Race Card

January 14, 2022

So the Democrats are playing the race card against the GOP on the Senate filibuster rule, calling Republicans “racist” if they oppose the old custom’s ad hoc elimination. What a surprise. The Democrats play the race card against everyone and everything that stand in their way on any issue, no matter how hypocritical it is for them, i.e., the political group with the most racist record of any major party in American history. Recall slavery, the Confederacy, segregation, Jim Crow, eugenics, Bull Connor and the Ku Klux Klan, just to name a few Democrat distinctions. 

Of course, today’s Democrats fully expect their shameless, race-mongering posture to succeed, for two main reasons: 1) They know their liberal Democrat media accomplices won’t call them on it; and 2) they think the racial-minority target of their propaganda is too stupid to see through the hoax. (This is actually a demonstration of reflexive but disguised lib-Dem racism, perhaps the most common residual racism variant remaining in contemporary America.) 

OK, add another reason for Democrat overconfidence: chronic Republican meekness in the face of political bullying. It is remarkable indeed how often lib-Dems get more mileage out of lying than conservatives and Republicans get from telling the truth. 

Those who favor a public-policy process resistant to the infection of propaganda can hope national Republicans find a way to do better this time, or a fili-busted U.S. Senate will soon further the radical Democrat aim of a one-party leftist dictatorship imposed on America via total Democrat control of all elections. A permanent socialist dictatorship, that is, as millions more illegals gain the franchise as reliable Dem voters. (Note, for emphasis, the nature and consequences of every leftist dictatorship in world history, and what that portends for us.) Therefore, here are some public communication suggestions for the flat-footed, ham-handed, and spine-challenged Republicans at this make-or-break juncture for America’s future as a free country: Essentially, you can jujitsu the lib-Dems decisively and easily by emphasizing the racism aspect of the filibuster issue even more than they do, but in reverse. How so? Try the following, for a refreshing change. 

This latest resurrection of the Democrats’ most vile sophistry is a ripe occasion to meet it head on, and to quash it once and for all. It is past time for the feckless GOP to stand up to the schoolyard bully. “Go ahead, lib-Dems, bring it on” should be the attitude for Senate and other national Republicans. Unfortunately, if they have the stomach to use this bolder approach and the IQ points to perceive the opportunity, it will be a first. 

Otherwise, if Republicans continue as the lib-Dem punching bag, say farewell to the United States of America — and not just the United States “as we know it.” How long do you think it will take for our new radical leftist rulers to shred the Constitution, dynamite Mount Rushmore and change the very name of the country they have always hated? What a desperate position for our nation to be in: Our last line of defense against the long-dreaded socialist takeover of America and a future of leftist tyranny is this present crop of Republicans — and an erratic Democrat named Joe Manchin (whose wife has now been put on the payroll of his party’s machine). The lib-Dem scheme seems to be working. Heaven help our country.
