This past summer I spent an entire day with PJTV’s AlfonZo Rachel at his Macho Sauce Productions studios. AlfonZo has some amazing upcoming projects including an appearance in the new movie Runaway Slave which will be opening in January.
Since Barack Obama took office in 2008, his administration has seemingly been trying to create huge race/class divisions between Conservatives and liberals. Almost daily someone in the media comes out swinging their race card, trying to vilify Conservatives and/or the Tea Party.
For years, AlfonZo Rachel has been creating brilliant mini history lessons via his PJTV videos, telling the truth about the huge role Democrats have played in everything from perpetuating slavery, forming the KKK and fighting against the Civil Rights movement. Following is the 3rd part of the interview I conducted with AlfonZo about race relations in America 2011.
A-M: Rep. Maxine Waters said the Tea Party can ‘go to Hell’; Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee has accused people of being racists because they didn’t want Obama to raise the debt ceiling; the Black Caucus said white people want to lynch Black people because they disagree with Obama and Morgan Freeman said the same—slam after slam after slam. Interestingly, everyone says Obama hasn’t made any type of statement about race and yet he recently put a Norman Rockwell painting called ‘The Problem We All Live With’ (photo below) in the hallway outside of the Oval Office. Do you think this was Obama’s statement toward all of the accusations?
AZ: How does that saying go—‘If Democrats didn’t have double-standards they wouldn’t have any standards at all’? It seems everything Obama does is a gaffe, and whether it’s intentional or not the guy doesn’t have the means to fix race in America. He was seen as that person, maybe people thought it would be him, but no. Number one, you were elected for the wrong reasons. Out of the gate, your presidency is racist. People voted for you for racist, Afro-centric reasons.
A-M: Why do you say that? Explain that.
AZ: You ask, ‘Why’d you vote for Obama’ and people would say ‘because he’s black.’ It’s that simple. Even if they don’t come out and directly say that—which a lot of them have, it’s like, what do you know about him, right? What do you know about his very short term as Senator? What do you know about his voting record, his education? What do you know? What do you think he’s going to do for you? Really, no answers. Oh—he’s got them Obama Dollars, he’s gonna dip into his stash and we’re not gonna have to worry about our mortgage or our gas anymore, he’s gonna change everything. He’s hope, he’s change, but you’re not really giving me anything policy-oriented; you’re not giving me anything he’s going to do to protect your rights. You think he’s gonna give you stuff; you’re seeing him as a provisional aspect of a president, which is not what a president’s supposed to be. He’s a protector, not a provider. So bottom line is what you’re telling me is you’re voting for him because he’s black is what it all comes down to.
So his presidency is racist out of the gate and when I look at this whole thing, they get mad when we say he’s gotta be a one-term president, but I figure the treatment for cancer really sucks. Cancer sucks, the treatment sucks, but ya gotta go through the treatment and it’s gonna hurt getting him out of office. People are gonna be mad but you gotta pull that tooth—it’s gotta go. He’s bad for race relations.
A-M: All of this reminds me of the shaky race relations during the OJ Simpson trials. I had a friend who was furious with me because I told her I believed he was guilty. She said straight to my face that white people had taken away all her black heroes and that she didn’t care whether he did it or not—he was OJ Simpson.
AZ: We’re dealing with people’s sentiments and people’s desires. That’s why when I say don’t use facts or that facts don’t matter, it’s not that I’m saying don’t tell the truth or that facts aren’t important, I’m just saying that for the people that you’re dealing with, they’re not important to them. So unless you’re able to adapt your facts to that person’s disposition, what good are your facts? But you still want to use your facts for the other people who are listening ‘coz somebody else may catch the conversation, and chances are they may think both of you are idiots but there’s still that other person who may say, ‘yeah, that person’s raising some really good points.’ You have to have that conversation—you gotta throw them seeds out there. Some grounds just aren’t gonna accept those seeds and we talk about it in faith. Some of your seeds may fall on rocks, some may fall on flat dirt, but some will fall on rich soil. Ya gotta cast your seeds out there. So have the conversation; be as honest as you can but know that a lot of the time you’re dealing with sentiments. They have to want to believe it and they will try to grab hold of whatever facts they have to substantiate their beliefs—but their beliefs are rooted in selfishness.
That’s where you gotta call in a shrink (laughs). I’m not a shrink but I know these things because I’ve been there. I used to be a liberal and I know what it’s like to have this really selfish attitude because it’s all about me, and you’ll say anything to justify selfish behavior.
A-M: That’s so funny because liberals always say we’re the selfish, greedy ones and that all we care about is money.
AZ: Yeah, that’s right. We’re all about money, but liberals are all about other people’s money and that’s even worse.
A-M: Earlier this year Nancy Pelosi was giving a big speech all about all those greedy multi-millionaires wanting to buy bigger boats. She never mentioned that she herself is a multi-millionaire, of course.
AZ: It’s race warfare and class warfare and people like Nancy Pelosi knows that the have-nots hate the rich. She knows that and she knows how to use that angle—so she comes in and makes like she’s one of them and she’s able to hypnotize these people, whether it’s Nancy Pelosi or Michael Moore. These people are multi-millionaires but they go to these people and they point their finger at the ‘other’ rich and they get the have-nots to hate the other rich and then they get away scot-free. And then they get these same people to vote for them using their dollars. Michael Moore’s gonna get money from the people that he’s convinced to hate the rich. With Pelosi, she’s going to get take their money because she’s going to vote in tax policies that’s going to get more of their money. But they’re dealing with desires because they want to be told that the rich are gonna be punished, and this rich person is gonna do the punishing. ‘Oh, she’s not rich, she’s one of us!’ I’ve talked to people who were surprised when I’ve told them Bill Clinton is wealthy. ‘No way!’ (laughs) ‘Yeah, Bill Clinton is a wealthy man and he’s been wealthy a very long time.’ The language these Democrats use is so patronizing, so pandering, and it’s really so simple. When you think of the term ‘can’t see the forest for the trees’, they’ve got this thing that’s right in front of them and they just don’t see it.
It’s not that hard for Democrats to get to the people because they’re so ready to receive. Their victim mentality is stroked, they’re so ready to receive the idea of the rich being punished, they’ve got a chip on their shoulder and they’re so ready to hear the language that the white man is being punished; they’re so ready to hear somebody pander to their ethnicity whether it’s Afro-centric or Hispanic pride or whatever—they wanna hear somebody stand on stage and speak to them in a biased language so they can have that sense of pride.
This stuff is easy to do; it’s cheap and it’s easy. It looks expensive because they’re suckering these people out of their money, which is why they have money! So they’re able to pay for all these radio and television networks and satellites and what have you because they’re milking these people! These people are their stock—voter stock, money stock, it’s all them and they’ve got them contained.
