The Liberal Trap

So I’m going to go out on a limb and bring up two very touchy subjects: race and gender. And on top of that, just to throw a little spice into the mix, I’m also going to risk being perceived as an ageist.

But some risks are worth taking and some things just have to be said, especially when the future of this great nation is being systematically destroyed from the inside.

A few days ago, I was talking to my younger sister – yes, the same one who ran over a church parking lot curb – who was rather distressed about a statistic she read, which heralded the disproportionately high number of African-Americans that still approve of President Obama.

Similarly, women – perhaps still dreaming about having sex with the man for some utterly inconceivable reason – continue to give him higher marks than men do. And of course, we all know that young people are more likely to vote Democrat and therefore blindly follow the president more than older people.

So what’s the common denominator in those three groups, two of which I quite firmly fall into? Easy. Liberals have targeted them all for decades.

In the case of the so-called minorities (a.k.a. African and female Americans), leftists have cunningly stroked our egos, telling us that we’re actually worth more than anybody else, that we’re entitled, that we deserve… well… just about everything we want.

Meanwhile, when it comes to young people, we’ve just been conditioned to be a fascinating mix of bleeding hearts and selfish twits. And really, when you think about it, that’s a rather impressive feat to achieve.

Hook, Line and Sinker

Regardless, all three groups have unfortunately fallen for the liberal agenda hook, line and sinker. Too many in each have accepted the ridiculous premise that they’re right just because of what they are – and not who they choose to be – while old white men are guilty until proven innocent, and even then just barely.

Before I continue, please don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that whites, men or old people are infallible or incorruptible. John McCain, who embodies all three labels, is proof that they can definitely get it very, very, very wrong on a consistent basis. And while not male, satan incarnate serves as another great example of how far they can fall.

For that matter, I can personally name or recall too many nincompoops of all ages and races, and both genders, who have driven me up the wall for just about every reason under the sun.

But personally, I try to judge people by their actions instead of the physical characteristics they were born with through no decision of their own. So I can also name you men and women, blacks, whites, Hispanics, Asians, old people, young people, etc. that have done wonderful things for their fellow human beings.

That’s because in my mind – and in the real world – people are people.

Weird concept, huh?

Sadly, to many Americans, it is though. Sexism, racism and ageism are looked on as the new form of equality these days, as the liberal agenda promotes that ALL blacks and women as victims and nothing more.

On the one hand, those of us that are young, black, female or some combination of the three have some excuse for buying into that perception: We’ve largely been taught that way since Day 1.

It’s in children’s literature, or at least it was back when I was young and reading the Bernstein Bears with their oftentimes foolish Papa Bear. It’s in our schooling through all levels, how we too often focus much more prominently on the inequalities of our history than our heroes. And it's in our media.

But on the other hand, is that really an excuse at all?

Sadly, in the end, I think that we’ll be judged just as harshly as the old white men. And we’ll all pay the consequences regardless.
