Elect Obama, Destroy America

Political hyperbole? Right-wing alarmist propaganda?
Consider this.

The Ruinous Bequests of the Sixties

Most protest movements begin as an organized expression of a legitimate grievance -- some perceived societal injustice, perhaps in response to actual governmental or judicial tyranny. If the timing is right and the issues resonate, successful protest movements can flourish and quickly grow into full-fledged revolutions, and revolutions can often degenerate into bloody civil wars.
Is America presently in the midst of such a potentially explosive scenario? Unfortunately, the signs appear to be more and more ominous. Since those traumatic events of September 11, 2001, this nation has been resolutely dividing itself into two increasingly hostile and irreconcilable camps. That reasonable 'middle ground', traditionally amenable to compromise, has been steadily shrinking until it has become all but hypothetical. It has been argued, not unconvincingly, that not since those anxious years in the mid-Nineteenth Century, prior to our perhaps inevitable, but monstrously destructive Civil War, has this great country been so split asunder.

  1. Great article Roger. It hit the nail right on the head. The culture of "victimhood" is rampant in the black community. No where else in America do you see it.

    I'm not saying that Blacks haven't been victims of racism. They have been. But so have Native Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Gypsies, Jews, Catholics, Mormons, etc... The list is long. And yes their ancestors were slaves. But 4 long years of civil war, and the 13, 14, and 15th amendments to the US Constitution corrected that. Yes Blacks suffered in the South and Midwest.

    The culture of victimhood is a terrible one. It prevents a person from achieving their full potential. It says the "state" is responsible for their condition, so must give to them special privileges.

    We see this culture here in the Black community and in the Palestinians. They are 2 peas in a pod.

    Forget about the blessings of learning. We will just get a handout from the "state". Forget about trying to rise out from poverty. We get a handout from the "state".

    Until the black community shakes up itself and the "state" stops the handouts, this culture will continue.

  2. Thank you both Findalis and Jungle Mom.

    A special note:
    We have talked before on Radarsite about the differences between people who devote their lives figuring out new ways to kill other people, and people who devote their lives to helping other people.

    For those of you who may not have had the pleasure, please follow the link and meet a shining example of humanity and courage, our remarkable missionary friend Jungle Mom. I promise you won't be sorry.

  3. You're absolutely right Roger. Such a lovely site.

  4. Right Findalis. Lovely woman, lovely family, and a great cause.

    PS: -- I'm still waiting for that article about that synagogue that stored our national (or pre-national) treasure during the War for Independence --


  5. Still tracking it down. Been busy with oil related research. Somethings brewing, but can't pin it down.
