The not-so-hidden racism of Progressives

Interesting essay about the occult racist motives for Progressive political positions:
Progressive Racism: The Hidden Motive Driving Modern Politics
Quite plausible. I've noted that a common tactic of Progressives-- actually the core tactic of Progressives-- is to accuse their opponents of doing exactly what they're doing. Projection is what Freud called it. It's an effective tactic, because it puts conservatives on the defensive and it seems the best conservatives can do is say "it's really you who do/think that, not us".

Perhaps the clearest evidence for Progressive racism is:

1) Progressivism has always been racist-- Jim Crow and segregation were archetypal Progressive social programs. The second iteration of the Ku Klux Klan had extensive links to Progressivism, and the first Democrat Progressive President (Woodrow Wilson) was a seething racist who re-segregated the federal government after Republicans had desegregated it for generations.

2) Progressives show an astonishing lack of concern about the real world harm their policies do to black people. Note the lack of concern about the catastrophic effect Progressive government has on crime-and-corruption-infested cities like Detroit, Chicago, New Orleans, etc. has on actual (not just theoretical) black people. Progressives whine about "racist dog-whistles" yet they impose corrupt incompetent government on blacks and cause more misery among black Americans in any city block in Detroit than "racist" Republicans have "caused" black misery in the entire country.

Who hurt black people more: the corrupt mayors of Chicago and Detroit and Washington D.C., or Ronald Reagan?

There is a curious lack of interest among Progressives about improving the lives of black people who live under their governance. The Trayvon Martin circus was a fine example. The people who govern Democrat-Progressive municipal war zones in which young black men are slaughtered on a daily basis got the vapors about a self-defense shooting of a black man by a hispanic guy in Florida, blaming it on "white racism".

Why isn't the half-century black murder epidemic in Democrat-Progressive cities "white racism"?

A logical place to start in protecting and improving the lives of black people would be in the violent slums owned and governed by Progressive Democrats. Don't hold your breath. When you remember the history of Democrats/Progressives-- slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, the KKK-- it's not surprising that black folks still suffer under their policies. 


  1. People shut up when they are called racist, which is why leftists are always calling people racist. Putting a gag in everyone else's mouths is the goal.

    That's why they tie race to everything. It would be quite a fun game, if it weren't so harmful to discourse, kind of like playing six degrees of Kevin Bacon.


    1. Yes Trish, we should all just shut up about racism, the status quo of white privilege must be maintained.


    2. Yes, KW, everyone in the world would benefit if you JUST. SHUT. UP.

    Egnor, you aren't doing a very good job here. What you really should be writing about is the latest speculation on what may have happened to Flight 370. That's what people should be thinking about.

    And I noticed that you never wrote a word about the arrest of Justin Bieber. Now that was news worth reading!

    You also did not mention that Crimea's gay community is anxious about joining Russia, people are filling out the NCAA brackets, and gluten myths have been debunked.

    The fact that Democrats are racist is not worth knowing.

    Good job, Joe!

    1. Meanwhile, paleocon Pat Buchanan nods approvingly at Putin's land grab. Is Putin the irrational one?

      "If the people of Eastern Ukraine wish to formalize their historic, cultural and ethnic ties to Russia, and the people of Western Ukraine wish to sever all ties to Moscow and join the European Union, why not settle this politically, diplomatically and democratically, at a ballot box?"

  4. It's so hateful that you keep telling the truth about Progressivism, you h8er!

  5. It's so funny to see old converts like Egnor and the 'Admiral' pile lie upon lie. They probably converted because they were depressed (childless 'Admiral') and/or drunks (Egnor) or couldn't handle the thought that death is really the end. But by their own new philosophy they will burn forever in hell. Luckily hell doesn't exist.

  6. I find it amusing that Egnor thinks that the linked essay is 'interesting' and 'quite plausible'. Usually when he agrees with an article, he declares it to be 'excellent' or similar.

    Perhaps the essay is too stupid even for Egnor? With its claim that the banning of plastic shopping bags is racist? Or it's claim that concern about AGW amongst progressives isn't about the science and the strong possibility that it will have catastrophic effects, but rather because it has the racist intention of transferring large amounts of wealth from rich western countries to poor undeveloped countries?

    The transfer of wealth from rich western countries is already happening. Except, it's going to OPEC countries, such as Saudi Arabia, and other countries, such as Russia - which are able to finance their other activities inimical to the west with the proceeds.

    Oil currently is around $108 a barrel. America had a very good year last year for recovering oil - around 8 million barrels a day (around 40% of consumption).

    Poor countries aren't getting richer because they also need to buy their needed oil on world markets. With the current addiction to fossil fuels, rich western countries and poor developing countries are transferring their wealth to corrupt oil producing countries.

    1. Now we are starting to hear a better argument for ending dependence upon oil. Resource depletion. It's coming, sooner or later. We should be opening a nuclear power plant every week for the next ten years. And establishing a habitat at the L-5 point between the Moon and Earth to transform sunshine into microwaves and beam the power down to Earth.
