Reid Tells the Truth

January 10, 2010 12:59 PM

I do not like Harry Reid. I do not like his role in an impending government takeover of the entire health care sector of the US economy. I do not like his "cash for cloture" bribe of the scabrous senator from Colorado, Ben Nelson, and the other bribes he has perpetrated for the purpose of that takeover. However, when Reid tells the truth, I am willing to defend him, and for once, Reid has told the truth. What he said, as I have read it, was:

that Obama could be successful as a black candidate in part because of his… speaking patterns "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."

Now let me see: who was it that made Obama a successful candidate for President of the United States? Was it allegedly racist Republicans? No. Was it the Aryan Brotherhood or the Ku Klux Klan? No. It was "progressives," white liberals, and Bush-hating "independents." Would these voters have voted for a Black man from a Black American family who spoke, as many Black Americans do, African American Vernacular English, which Reid, in his folksy Searchlight, Nevada way, called "Negro dialect"?

The short answer is "no." If you don't believe me, ask Al Sharpton, or Pastor James David Manning.

The political machine which is blatantly anti-democratic, and which labels itself using the Orwellian term "the Democratic Party," is the party of racemongering demagoguery. I have written about that, and I am convinced that the kingmakers behind the Obama presidential candidacy decided that they could make big political gains by exploiting the "historic first Black president" canard, using Obama, because:

  1. Obama's mother was a white woman from the Midwest.
  2. Obama's father was not an African American. He was a Muslim Luo from Kenya who spent a relatively short time of his life in the USA.
  3. Obama spent many formative years in Indonesia, and on another Pacific Island, Hawaii, attending private schools.
  4. [And last but definitely not least] when he speaks Obama sounds white. In fact he sounds jarringly, bizarrely almost too white to be true. His speech sounds like the product of dialect coaches, with an occasional veneer of preacher-speak from his beloved mentor, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, who does conduct his sermons in African American Vernacular English.

Rather than addressing the truth about what Reid said, the political parties have begun an orgy of finger-pointing and name-calling, beginning with Reid himself who apologized for telling the truth, in the same manner that "progressives" of a previous era would apologize for counter-revolutionary ideas going against the Party Line, just before their execution by the Stalinist regime.

Too bad. We need truth more now than we need political posturing.
