Whether we refer to it as the eyeball test or Malcolm Gladwell’s theory covered in his book Blink (our brain gives us all the info we need in most situations in the blink of an eye) the message is the same.
Listen to what your body tells you.
Too many in America aren’t doing this anymore. Denial, rationalization, willful ignorance, or idolatry has taken us down a road that too many won’t understand how dangerous until it’s too late.
As I watched the CNN Democratic Presidential debate my brain gave me all I needed to know in the blink of an eye.
The Party of “Racial Diversity” had five white faces on the stage…sort of.
Four white and one orange, if we want to be accurate, as Martin O’Malley appeared to have borrowed John Boehner’s tanning lotion.
Then again maybe he was trying to channel his inner Elizabeth Warren. Someone should have told him “orange face” is “racist” or Orange is only the new Black on NetFlix.
Just ask Syracuse or St. John’s University.
But let us give Martin the benefit of the doubt. Maybe the reason he looked so orange was the rest of the panel appeared to resemble Casper the Friendly Ghost.
My brain then took in the next obvious factor.
The Party of “Gender Equality” had four men and a Clinton.
Yes Hillary is a woman but because of the damage done by her husband to more women than we will ever know, and her constant covering up of his crimes, my guess is O’Malley would be a better voice in support of female rights except he apologized for saying “all lives matter” so maybe he doesn’t care about our American sisters either.
These Democrats are hard to follow unless we institute the rule of hypocrisy and the comprehension that they will Say Anything (excellent movie) to be elected. Once we have our hypocrite/liar model in place they are much easier to translate.
The last eye catching moment was the audacity of the Democratic Party to claim they are the Party of the “Youth”. I’m not going to bother doing the research. No one on that stage could possibly be south of sixty and we all know Hillary struggles with “email”.
These politicians have crushed the “youth” with catastrophic federal debt, punitive Obamacare premiums or fines, and stunning student loan insanity.
But if all that wasn’t enough Colonel Sanders decided to wade in with his love of “Democratic Socialism” and Scandinavian countries.
Hmm…this is more about the ear test…and a few historical facts.
You see the Democratic Party in all its glory was the Party of…Slavery.
Specifically of the black human.
Yes slavery existed in the Americas long before the Democratic Party.
The indigenous “tribes” murdered, raped, pillaged, and sold each other long before any European “invasion”.
The English sold the Irish up and down the Americas reportedly as early as the 1600’s.
They also sold “Afrikans” as did the Mohammedans (Muslims).
Humans have done and continue to do horrible things to each other.
Unfortunately slavery still exists in Africa and Muslim countries as accepted practices…whether you want to believe or acknowledge that or not.
Fortunately a man named Lincoln made a Proclamation about Emancipation and an imperfect people in an imperfect world gave their lives for many reasons…one of them being the freedom of humans who did not look like them.
This is the only time in recorded history I am aware of that one “color” of human fought the same “color” of human to free another “color”.
Even in her infancy America was leading the way.
Or at least part of America.
The Democratic Party did not support Freedom for All and it appears nothing has changed as that same belief system, that skin color dictates our place in the world, was seen on CNN.
One of Hillary Clinton’s idols was a woman named Margaret Sanger who believed in Eugenics or black and brown or even “yellow” humans (a racist phrase made famous by The Boss ‘going to kill the yellow man’) are inferior to white humans.
“Weekend at Bernie’s” himself lauds the systems of Scandinavian nations knowing they are well over ninety percent…wait for it…Caucasian.
Removing Jim Webb from the equation the only thing missing on that stage were the hoods.
In case you didn’t recognize it America, that was a 21st Century Klan meeting.
To all Americans who fall on the wrong side of the Eugenics absurdity and still support the Democratic Party:
You are being taken down a brutal path.
Just look at parts of Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles, Baltimore, and New York City.
Time to blink twice, refocus and join your American Brothers and Sisters who believe in the “content of our character” not the “color of our skin”.
To all Americans who look like and still support Hillary, Bernie, and the rest of the hatred and bile coming from the Democratic Party:
You should be ashamed of yourselves.
But whether you are or are not is irrelevant.
I and millions of Americans like me are already standing shoulder to shoulder and are on our way to deal with you.
You won’t recognize us from our skin color because we all blend under the freedom of the red, white, and blue.
But we will recognize you as we do with all bullies and cowards from that yellow streak running down your back as you flee from the righteous rage coming your way.
It’s easy to run your mouths when you are the only one throwing punches.
We’ll see how you do when we stop holding the line and start moving forward.
I’m pretty sure that won’t be a tingle running down your leg.
