Tea Party Nation head Judson Phillips emailed members today an article by tea party activist Dan Short, reminiscing about America before the 1960s when major civil rights laws were passed. Short attacks critics of the GOP’s inability to reach out to people of color for supposedly ignoring older white Americans, whom he claims have the “highest level of American patriotism in this nation.” He says older white Americans are the real Americans because they lived before the “anti-constitutional legislation of civil rights” and the end of the country’s racist quota system on immigration, and now resist our “communist elected leader.”
Our journey into destruction!
Is it not interesting to hear that the Republican Party is too old, and too white? As if this is some subset of our society that isn’t cognitive, and with the highest level of American patriotism in this nation.
Why is that? Is the answer not obvious?
Think of this comment in the American edition of Pravda—the once propaganda machine of the Soviet—“Recently, Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society…” http://english.pravda.ru/opinion/columnists/19-11-2012/122849-obama...
Let’s see, those who are American, who lived in this nation before the insanity of the immigration policy of 1965 went into effect; before the absolute inanity of the War on Poverty; before the anti-constitutional legislation of civil rights, before the anti-constitutional legislation of racism, as in affirmative action; who lived when American history was taught, before the intrusion of the Federal government and the department of education; who understood that in this nation the constitution is the enumeration, the restriction, of the power of government; and that our nation is built on the idea that government is a necessary evil, not the god little (g), or as it was said recently that the president is our “lord?”
If one is an American, who understand what it is to be an American; is not the sadness it is the older ones, those who learned the wonder of this nation? Those who also have at one time or another placed their most valuable wealth, their own life, in harm’s way to preserve this nation; to keep the light of liberty bright and shining.
Is it not sadder yet that today we have so many who know nothing of this nation; know nothing of our society; know nothing of our wonder; know nothing of our exceptionalism, our wonder that it is only those from this nation’s past, with that understanding realize the extent of this nation is under attack.
Today we have a communist elected leader—while our press, our citizenry, and our institutes of preserving this nation refuse to acknowledge that reality—then is it not obvious it will be those who know; those from when this nation mirrored its design are the only ones who will seem to be so out of touch, yet the only ones with any knowledge or the realization of what is disappearing—perhaps never to occur in human history.
