For decades Al Sharpton has masqueraded as a civil rights leader when in actuality he’s a race baiter who exploits the African-American community for personal gain. He and fellow race profiteer Jesse Jackson have helped build a culture of grievance that encourages and promotes victimization in those they claim to be helping. When there’s misery to exploit and money to be made we know these corporate shakedown artists are anxious to assist. Thankfully shysters like these two don’t always succeed. Jussie Smollett lied about being attacked by two white Trump supporters and he did it for personal gain. He was exposed as a fake victim. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford lied about being sexually assaulted by then Supreme Court nominee Bret Kavanaugh 35 years ago. Rule of law prevailed and Kavanaugh is the newest Justice on the Supreme Court. Ford, too, was exposed as a fake victim. And we can’t forget the ultimate manipulator of victimhood, Colin Kaepernick. His disrespect for the American flag had nothing to do with his claim of police brutality towards black men. He did it for the money. Reports indicate he has received tens of millions of dollars for his anti-American behavior. Not bad for a mediocre quarterback.
The party of victimhood, the Democrat Party, takes the African-American vote for granted and have done nothing to improve the lives of these constituents for fifty years. Now the party is expanding its search for new victims to exploit. This is a party that has also abandoned the middle class. They require an ever-growing underclass of voters who are unable or unwilling to provide for themselves. Open borders and free healthcare for illegal aliens are policies designed to attract those who will instantly become dependent on government. These new victims are future voters for the party of “free stuff.” Of course, nothing is free – the middle class would be picking up this tab. Don’t believe for a moment that Democrats care about the wellbeing of those flooding across our border because they couldn’t care less. Power is all they care about and they will gladly compromise the security and freedom of the American people to ensure it.
The left relies on a compliant and corrupt main stream media to advance this culture of victimhood. Democrats have another powerful ally helping to bolster this charade and that’s academia. Many of today’s universities have sold out to progressivism at the expense of academic achievement. There now exists a campus culture of victimhood that is encouraged and promoted by some very unimpressive educators and administrators. Students lacking in self-respect are being convinced that it’s easier to become a victim than to rely on personal responsibility. Rather than reaching their full potential, many of these students will embrace groups identified by grievance and in some cases, [Antifa], violence. Many of these students are the same thugs that shut down conservative voices on campuses across the nation. This behavior is a display of weakness. Those attempting to shut down debate are losing the debate or attempting to hide something. These fake victims are in training to become members of the Democrat Party.
Is 2020 an important election for the future of our Republic? – you bet! Freedom or Socialism.
