The False Narrative
was listening to the Chris Plante radio show the other morning on the
way to work and was intrigued by his take on the appearance before
Congress by the Director of the US Secret Service, Mark Sullivan, in
regard to the White House State Dinner interlopers, Michaele and Tareq
While poor security at the
White House is a serious matter, it wasn’t the party crashers that
caught the attention of Mr. Plante. No, Chris focused on the question
by liberal Democratic Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton that was posed
to Mr. Sullivan. Her question was designed to make a point. She said
something to the effect of, “Isn’t it true that President Obama has
received four times the number of death threats at this point in his
Administration than any other President?” This number, “four times” has
often been quoted by big media. Representative Norton clearly asked
the question in order to reinforce the point that the US is a racist
The Congresswoman must have
been stunned when the Director responded – No, the number of threats
are “at the same level as it was” during the two previous
Like Chris Plante,
I too had heard the media report a number of times that President Obama
had received four times as many death threats as any previous president
at this point in his presidency. I accepted it as a sad reality that
America is still a racist nation. After all, this was an objective
measurement of racism in our nation. The only thing that separated
President Obama from Bush and Clinton was, on the face of it, the color
of his skin.
And didn’t the White
House accuse the tea party folks and the town hall meeting folks of
racism? I doubted the latter, but wasn’t their view at least minimally
supported by the objective measurement of death threats against this
But it wasn’t true! The
White House knew it, but instead of clearing up this falsehood, they
perpetuated it and embraced it. Apparently it was part of a widespread
false narrative that is vital to the powerful grip the Democrats have on
black American voters. It is, in fact, something the Democrats and
liberals generally treat as absolute gospel. It is shouted from CNN and
MSNBC and treated as truth by The New York Times and The Washington Post. It is undisputed fact according to CBS, NBC, and ABC.
fact, talk to any liberal and you will find an almost fanatical belief
that America is a terrible, racist nation. But, clearly on the basis of
the objective fact that President Obama has had no more death threats
than any other previous President, belies the narrative that America is a
You and I have been
conned, the American people have been conned and most hurtful of all,
black Americans in particular have been conned. This is a scam that
makes Bernie Madoff look like a piker.
truth is out. The ruse is over. Yet, liberals are in denial.
Democratic politicians aren’t just in denial, they choose to maintain
this false mantra because if the truth gets out their death lock on the
black community will be gone. Without 95% of the black vote, the
Democrats will be gone as a national power.
perhaps the Democrats have nothing to worry about. Facts be damned.
I’m sure that you and I can count on a continued narrative from the
liberal news media and the Democratic politicians that America is a
That is not to say
that there is no racism in America. That would be like saying there is
no sin in America. Fallen men will always succumb to finding a reason
to hate. After all, that’s what racism is, hatred.
accusing a group of Americans of racism just because they are members
of another political party or advocate limited government, a government
of laws, and adherence to the US Constitution, is a slander equally bad
as racism itself.
The Democrats and
liberals in the media will continue to lie to the American people, and
especially to black Americans because it suits their narrative and
because their grip on political power depends on it.
conveniently leave out of the narrative the fact that it was Democrats
who tried to block passage of Civil Rights legislation and it is the
Democrats who have a former member of the Klu Klux Klan as a sitting US
They seek not a colorblind
society where, as Dr. King sought, men and women are not judged by the
color of their skin, but by the quality of their character. No, they
seek a color conscious society that enables them to keep and expand
their power over the lives of all citizens.
the sands of time are running out on that misguided strategy. It is a
political house of cards that is sure to collapse. In many ways black
America is much more in tune with conservatives than with liberals.
oppose abortion, they support school prayer, they seek quality
education, they cherish freedom and opportunity, and yes, they support
lower taxes. But as long as they still believe that America is racist,
and conservatives in general are racist, they will not support
Republican candidates. How much longer can the Democrats and their
allies in the news media sustain this false narrative? Only time will
tell. But, indeed, it is just a matter of time.
