Class Warfare Being Turned Into Race Warfare?

On August 28, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, said the following while delivering a very famous speech at the base of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.:

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

Unfortunately, sir…we aren’t there , yet.

“Romney is very, very comfortable, it seems with people who are like him,” Politico’s Joe Williams said on MSNBC’s Martin Bashir program today. “That’s one of the reasons why he seems so stiff and awkward in some town hall settings, why he can’t relate to people other than that. But when he comes on “Fox & Friends,” they’re like him, they’re white folks who are very much relaxed in their own company. So it really is a very stark contrast, I think and a problem that he’s not been able to solve to date and he’s going to have network harder if he’s going to try to compete.”

And evidently, it’s not just Mitt Romney that’s a bigoted silver-spoon sucker.  It’s all of us “crackas”.

The University of Minnesota – Duluth (UMD) is now sponsoring an ad-campaign designed to achieve “racial justice” by raising awareness of “white privilege.”

The project disseminates its message, that “society was setup for us [whites]” and as such is “unfair,” through an aggressive campaign of online videos, billboards, and lectures. The ads feature a number of Caucasians confessing their guilt for the supposed “privilege” that comes along with their fair features.

The self-titled Un-Fair Campaign, is sponsored and supported by the University of Minnesota – Duluth, along with several liberal organizations including the NAACP, YWCA, and The League of Woman Voters.

“You give me better jobs, better pay, better treatment, and a better chance – all because of the color of my skin,” reads one poster that features a close shot of a Caucasian male.

The Un-Fair campaign also held a series of lectures and events on campus last semester. One included a presentation by Tim Wise, author of Dear White America. In his book, Wise confesses a “longstanding fantasy” where he turns to a man with a “God Bless the USA” button and asks him, “why can’t you just get over it?”

These lectures were publicly endorsed by university Chancellor Lendley Black. Black sent a message to the campus community in April describing his effort to “create an inclusive campus climate for all” through providing “support and… leadership to the Un-Fair Campaign.”

FLASHBACK: UMD Administrator Calls Conservative “White Supremacist” for Giving Away Free Pocket Constitutions

Documents obtained exclusively by Campus Reform this week, through a public records request, however, show that students on campus have expressed outrage over the administration’s support of the racially-charged campaign.

One student, whose identity was redacted in the documents released by UMD, e-mailed Chancellor Black expressing his discontent, writing that the Un-fair campaign “is in fact UNFAIR.”

The student proceeded to write: “It may be drawing awareness to factors that we might otherwise not pay attention to, but it’s creating a gap between people. It’s only making people more racist on both sides.”

LI’s Campus Reform contacted the school seeking further comment, but was unable to reach a spokesperson for comment by the time of publication.

On April 25th of this year, wsj.com ran the following article:

After securing victory in all five Republican presidential primary contests last night, Mitt Romney told an audience in New Hampshire that President Obama is resorting to class warfare because he can’t run on his record.

Last week, Mr. Obama told an audience that “I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth,” a clear swipe at the privileged background of Mr. Romney. And yesterday the president told a group of college students that student loan debt “is something Michelle and I know about firsthand . . .. [W]e’ve been in your shoes. Like I said, we didn’t come from wealthy families.”

In his speech last night, Mr. Romney pushed back. “You might have heard that I was successful in business, and that rumor is true,” he quipped and then went on to defend his background in private equity. But the real issue in this campaign, he added, is what do we have to show for three-and-a-half years of President Obama.

“Is it easier to make ends meet? Is it easier to sell your home or buy a new one? Have you saved what you needed for retirement? Are you making more in your job? Do you have a better chance to get a better job? Do you pay less at the pump?” asked Mr. Romney. “If the answer were ‘yes’ to those questions, then President Obama would be running for re-election based on his achievements, and rightly so. But because he has failed, he will run a campaign of diversions, distractions, and distortions.”

Ol’ Mitt sure called that one, didn’t he?

Given the failure of the OWS movement, could this be a new tactic to distract from Obama’s miserable record?

You betcha.

    BARACK himself being a distraction / a distraction from
    BUSH and gang of extreme right wing religious fanatics
    whom brought the nation unto its knees / not in prayer
    but of shame & poverty. Shame that (international law)
    was abandoned / leading unto the invasion of nations
    where many hundreds of thousands of muslims killed
    man woman child shown no mercy victims of appalling
    brutality injustice /inhumanity /bringing a river of tears.

    Poverty forced upon american people with the nations
    resources directed to that of war / lost in an illusion of
    america in gaining world military & political domination.

    Not to blame govt for the grave damage done // bank
    regulations were removed / in open the bank doors to
    fraud which the many fraudsters took a full advantage
    of … thus it achieved its purpose the nations collapse
    was not directed to its real cause of illegal wars / the
    folly of govt as the military / both having lost the plot
    the blame for the nations problems / was put on that
    of fraudulant banks as bankers // such the message
    from the 24/7 govt media brainwashing / and it being
    once again american people’s treated as being mere
    sheep to fleece // cut unto the very bone till bleeding.

    The sad reality the republicans with BUSH did not win
    the election putting them in govt such win gained VIA
    massive voting fraud / backed by a corrupt supreme
    court ruling / which awarded republicans election win.

    The reality people must face is that BARACK simply a
    distraction from reality // and once again people must
    face reality if they are to emerge from such pit now in.

    BARACK’s more suited unto selling second hand cars
    that not roadworthy / than the position of president….
    BARACK is but a fraudster /the fraudster of fraudsters
    he is way out of his depth/and simply has’nt got a clue
    as what’s just what’s unjust / in telling right from wrong
    it true he himself a victim yet a willing victim blinded by
    political power & trappings of wealth its alluring illusion.

    The nation must retreat to back reality. The removal
    of BARACK / another term with BARACK as president
    & democrats in govt / is as one sailing on the TITANIC
    heading towards the ICEBERG unto an avoidable fate.

    One can’t judge all republicans as being in the same
    mind frame as BUSH & his gang were // they were of
    another planet with their diet of half – baked religious
    mumbo jumbo / they took half – baked religious ideas
    beliefs & believed them / GEORGE declaring he was
    God’s choosen to lead a holy crusade agin muslims
    the american 24/7 brainwashing media actually fully
    supporting him. Thus off to war the christian soldiers
    marched / lead by God’s choosen GEORGE whom in
    reality he & his gang should have been (hospitilized)
    being a danger to themselves as a danger to others.

      As a Liberal, living in the UK, of what concern is American politics to you? We will decide our own fate, thank you. It appears that you just like to use up ban width. Shorten your comments, or be banned.

    The party of hyphenated America can’t run on outcomes as their whole approach is based on emotion and CONTROL…

    Btw, if you want to see a whole lot of stuttering and stammering just repeat MLK’s “judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character” plea to any one of their bought and paid for 90% voting bloc…

    • G Says:

      And keep reminding everyone that Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican, as was Abraham Lincoln. The Democratic Party was the party of slavery, the KKK, Jim Crow laws, and segregation.

  4. Rex May Says:

    It’s true that MLK was a Republican, but what are we to conclude from that? It’s hardly proof of the virtue of Republicanism, is it?
