Hate Crimes Legislation….Racial Identity Politics and the Institutional Racism of the Left

In 2009 Eric Holder went on record and testified before a Senate judiciary Committee. The testimony was shocking to say the least and could have very well changed the way that laws are enforced in our country. Eric Holder, on that 25th of June proclaimed that the new hate crime legislation would not protect “white people” or “Christian ministers.”  Generally speaking a hate crime is defined as a targeted attack against an individual or groups based on characteristics such as race, religion, ethnicity and now even sexual orientation. Eric Holder, while being grilled by the committee maintained his position by stating that the new legislation was written to protect those that have historically been oppressed and targeted because of skin color or religious affiliation, giving African Americans and Jews as examples. When asked some simple question pertaining to how the laws would be enforced Mr. Holder stumbled over himself a bit as he struggled to justify his reasoning. One question posed to him involved a preacher being violently attacked by a homosexual militant because of the preacher’s sermon on homosexuality. While a crime such as this would certainly be motivated by hatred and focuses on religious beliefs as a motive, Holder refused to call that a “hate crime.” The reason for that is simple if you understand “white privilege” and “social justice” education.

Just as a reminder, “white privilege” education means your children are currently or will be taught that white men are the beneficiaries of a system that is biased towards and only benefits them. As a result, white men, knowingly or not are automatically contributing to the oppression of the minorities in the United States. This mentality is also the premise of multiculturalism. Social justice is just another nice sounding term that essentially means taking from those that earned and giving to those who haven’t. When you look at the heart of what this doctrine is actually saying is that only white people can be racist because we have the power of the institutions behind us to reinforce our discriminatory behavior, while minorities do not. Therefore minorities cannot be racist; they can not commit crimes based on racism. Wouldn’t protecting minorities with hate crime legislation that doesn’t apply to whites be an example of having an “institutional power” behind you?

Throughout the course of the past couple years we have been witness to a shocking rise in racial violence. Through flash mob‘s or the so called knockout game, blacks have been systematically targeting helpless white victims. Through “white privilege education” and “critical race theory” the left would have you believe that these incidents from years of systematic, institutional oppression in which the victims can no longer control themselves. They would argue that the violent actions of a few teenagers towards a helpless old man are justified due to the “historical oppression” their people have had to face. This is a premise of critical race theory. This is why these people are not prosecuted under hate crimes legislation even though a white man recently busted playing the knock out game will be. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/dec/26/federal-authorities-charge-white-knockout-suspect-/

You have to wonder if this theory does more to de-humanize the black population than it does offer an excuse for their behavior. The theory itself definitely excuses the behavior but at what cost? By justifying these crimes based on a dead history that we as Americans have done everything we can to rectify,(affirmative action, welfare programs, hate crime legislation) is the left actually telling society that blacks are less than human who are unable to live up to the consequences of their actions or deal with their anger in a different way? Being human means learning from our mistakes and dealing with our emotional issues; and by doing so we can expect to grow and become stronger people. Are the proponents of white privilege and critical race theory denying this opportunity to black Americans by making them believe they are still being victimized? You only have to look at the disastrous results of other left wing equality programs like affirmative action or the Great Society welfare programs to see what happens when liberals interfere. Today the vast majority of black families are fatherless and impoverished as a result of failed liberal promises. In an attempt to hide this failure the left ridicules all successful black Americans as being Uncle Tom’s or sellouts, while continuing to discredit white America for having a society based on institutional racism.

Let me demonstrate this using another example. The left initially claimed that the Benghazi attacks of Sept. 11 2012 were the result of an offensive video and because the video was offensive to the Muslim culture we were supposed to accept their response to it. Really, what the left wants us to accept is that the Muslim culture is so immature and so sensitive that the only way they can respond to something offensive is through senseless violence? We are supposed to view them with compassion and understanding while the left justifies their actions because they were offended? Again, this attempt at reverse psychology, in my opinion, does more to harm the Muslim population by excusing their murderous attitudes than it does t5o make us feel sorry for them. This is the backwards world of liberalism we live in today.

The institutional racism that is built in our society is the responsibility of the left. Throughout history it has been the democrats who have supported segregation and slavery while continuously voting against civil rights legislation. Today, they attempt to hide their history through racial identity politics, and the creation of a system where inequality is the new equality. By creating laws based on racial preferences the left is telling minorities that they believe they are not as capable as white men and therefore need their programs in order to stand a chance in the racist United States of America. This does little but reinforce hatred while attempting to justify black on white violence. This also solidifies an existing entitlement mentality where there is no need to work as everything will be provided by the government. This backwards thinking is destroying generations of families and the left calls it compassion.   It is also setting a dangerous precedent where the definition of racism is radically changed. Through the lens of liberalism racism now means believing that blacks in America can achieve something without their help. The insistence that black American’s need these programs is evidence enough of the racist attitudes of the left, only by believing that blacks are not equal would they have the audacity to create such a system of racial preferences.

    Of note, however, is that between then and now, that stance has yet to be tested because most of these prosecutions are handled by the several States and not the feds. A case that forces Holder to make a call could happen…it just has not yet.

      Ah, but it has. A white scumbag who played the disgusting “knockout game” and targeted a black man, in Texas, was charged with a federal hate crime by Holders’ Justice Department. The many black criminals who have perpetrated this very same crime against whites and Jews were not. These so called “hate crime laws” are the epitomy of arbitrary and capricious which, until now, have been considered unconstitutional. But, that antiquated dusty old document hasn’t stopped anything that this corrupt administration has done and Congress has certainly proved that they haven’t the spine to do it. Comin’ up on time for a 20 million man march on D.C.

      The states got to them first. Once they get to the cases, that’s it.

      Nice try but pure bulls#|t!!! What, Texas wasn’t going to charge the guy??? Federal charges can be added and I bet that they were. You must be the dumbest jailhouse lawyer in the country.

    Holder and Obama are RACIST plain and simple. And under any other President Holder would have been dismissed in the first month.

  • Rod Graham

    I believe that “affirmative action & equal opportunity” are racist programs, which prevent true equality, and should be abolished…..

    Why should someone that isn’t qualified, or capable, become a prime candidate, over someone that possesses both abilities?

    Shouldn’t it be the criteria that the best person for the job, be the one that is hired? Regardless of their color, or beliefs…..

    Wouldn’t this raise the quality of life, quality of products or services, for everyone?

    Instead they lower the standards, lower their expectations, in favor of the incapable, or unqualified…..

    We all have to live with the results…..

    The last two presidential elections prove what happens when a candidate is elected based upon a characteristic that has nothing to do with his ability to perform in the job, adequately…..

    Look at what has happened to our country as a result…..

    Only the deluded, insane, or stupid, believe that our decline, as a result of those two elections, has been a good thing…..

    A. Hate Crime is BS, something dreamed up by the sodomites. B. Eric Holder is a hater ,should be put on trial and then hung. C. There is NOTHING wrong with being white. It is apparent that liberals hate themselves.

    That “throughout history” stuff about the Democrats and Republicans is meaningless criticism because political parties change over time, with only the names remaining the same. You can no more legitimately fault today’s Democrats for supporting segregation in the early 20th century than you can fault today’s Republicans for maneuvering America into the Civil War in the mid-19th century.

    And there is no need for such useless invective about the past because both the Democrats and Republicans of today deserve serious disapproval for what they are doing now. And the most serious of what they are doing now is undermining America, Democrats more so than Republicans.

    Undermining takes various forms but they all lead to the same end, the destruction of America. The various forms of weakening America include changing the population from those who care about America to those who don’t, dividing the nation linguistically, trampling on traditional constitutional rights while converting every preference into a new inviolable right, and demoralization of the military.

    While all that evil is largely due to machinations by the Democrats, it could not have been accomplished without the willing cooperation of Republicans.

    If both major political parties are colluding in the destruction of America, the only hope for saving America is to replace at least one of the parties with another that truly believes in and wants to preserve America.

    This is proof that holder and obama are both racists of the worst kind. Why in hell will not congress do a damn thing about them?

  • JQcitizen

    Hate crime legislation should be deemed unconstitutional. We have adequate laws on the books to punish those who commit fellonies if the are applied. Hate crime legislation was enacted by so-called progressives to satisfy the their voting base(s).

  • gepops58

    The left is most definetly ruled by some really strange folks,it seems to me that the bill of rights did somewhere mention that all men were created equal.With that being said why do these so called compassionate human beings not charging everybody equally?Oh I forgot they are without fault….Well maybe 2014 will be a telling year and hopefully it all flys back in their “compassionate”faces and their spineless butts from Obama to the lowest worm in the ranks which includes all of them

    Since the lap dog of BoBo will continue to spew this perverse mentally ill mentality; it is evident to me that this is just another tactic of BoBo to insure a mega civil war on this country and it’s law abiding citizens. He wants to declare Marshal law s-o-o-o bad, he is gagging for it. If you think that 2013 was bad, 2014 is going to be a living h@ll. BoBo is going to push ALL the buttons at once at mid-term. It’s going to get ugly for the campaign, etc.. and our private lives if not already.. Watch and see. Good old BoBo the clown!
