VDH: Barack the Healer
ZIP | July 17, 2012 3:15 pm
In reality, BHO is somewhat of a healer – the canine variety. Always running around snapping his little fangs at the heals and hind legs of society. Yes, he is a healer………but not AKC; a mutt.
I really liked what Victor had to say here. As usual, there is much to ponder.
For example: I liked his comparison of how the NAACP demands that white people speak a certain way in front of African American audiences … yet, don’t hold Obama to that same standard when he speaks to white audiences.
It truly is rude and obnoxious. (My terms.)
We all know what the problem is. The very effort to unite our national community by fracturing society into multiple racial, ethnic, and religious groups……i’m talking about Multiculturalism here, the strategy is as stupid as it sounds.
As far as respecting diversity goes, Multiculturalism is a contradiction in terms. The United States of America was built upon the mutual respect for INDIVIDUAL diversity. The things that make every individual on the planet different from every other, is ignored, and sweeping generalizations are put in their place. ‘African American’, ‘Hispanic’, ‘Caucasian’, ‘Gay’, these labels reveal very little about what makes each person unique.
We have replaced the economic classes of the old world with racial and ethnic classes, and we have arrived at the same ends; conflict! The founders of this nation intentionally made everyone a member of the same class. This was a response to the caste system of old Europe that caused so much so much suffering and conflict that it provoked rebellion. No more Kings! No more Lords! No more Serfs! Everyone gets a fresh start where contrary to what Barack Obama thinks, our cleverness and our effort do set us apart. But our individual skills do not make us different in such a way that makes us unequal. A common law makes us equal.
‘We the people’ can either be ruled by another, elite class, or we can be ruled by law.
“The danger is not that a particular class is unfit to govern. Every class is unfit to govern. The law of liberty tends to abolish the reign of race over race, of faith over faith, of class over class.”
- Lord Acton, 1881
“The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.”
- Ayn Rand
……and no one who ignores individual identity can claim to respect diversity.
