What did Lyndon Johnson say about getting the black vote for 200 years?

Some say he did and some say he didn’t. But whatever he said the Democrats are playing the race card for all it is worth at present. So much for getting over racism.

Someone explain to the progressive left that anti-white racism is no better than anti-black racism and two wrongs do not make a right. There is also the false conception of collective justice that enables past wrongs by some members of a particular group to justify blank cheques to be written in favour of all the current members of the previously disadvantaged group against the accounts of everybody else.

    They know that. They just don’t care.

    They bank on “white guilt” to mitigate the voting backlash and they hope that the African Americans won’t see that they’re basically being re-enslaved by permanent welfare dependency while entry level jobs are given to the new favoured voteherd, Hispanic illegal immigrants .

    We likely never will know for certain if LBJ said what MacMillan claims, but Snopes’ case falls short of casting serious doubt on the testimony of an eyewitness account.

    No one takes Snopes seriously anyway. Fake fact-checkers.

    Why that’s probably a waste of time:

    The Left look at race through the lens of cultural Marxism:

    Anti-white racism is the oppressed rising up against the oppressor.

    It’s cultural Marxism that need to be argued against.

    1. There is no explaining.
    I can hand the TV remote control to my dog and explain both verbally and by touch what to do, but as intelligent as she is, she’ll merely sniff it and return to the bone she has just exhumed from the garden.

    2. There is no such thing as ‘progressive left.’ Please refer to the Catictionary for alternatives.

    In Australia, locking in the enraged, medicated, childless, vegan wymynsys vote for two hundred years is a gotcha for the left.

    Now they just gotta use the education system and their ABC to keep recruiting fresh cannon fodder.

    Comrades.

    “…was motivated not by altruism but a cynical ploy to lock up votes.”

    Everything a politician does is designed to get people to vote for them. It isn’t “cynical” nor is it a “ploy”. It’s their job.

    Please, please, please – can we refer to them as the regressive left?

    Sounds like the Frightbat voting bloc.

    Was funny that Newcastle City Council emailed us on New Years Eve to say fireworks had been cancelled due to OH&S, while we were watching a great thunderstorm.

    There is a statue on a column in Augusta I will be quite annoyed should it get removed.

    I beg to differ.

    There are two aspects of politicians’ jobs. First they are candidates. Then if they succeed at stage 1 they are elected representatives.

    At stage 1 their job is to get votes. There are some limits on what they should do to get votes but yes that’s their KPI.

    But at the second stage their real job is to exercise power in the best interests of the constituency that they represent. Sure, it’s impossible in practice to get a politician to forget that stage 1 will recur, but that doesn’t mean that we should just accept that they put re-election ahead of duty.

  12. Up The Workers!

    The situation has a parallel in Australia where the A.L.P. is still allegedly the “party of the worker” – despite the disgrace exposed at T.U.R.C. of Bull Shitten’s dishonourable behaviour at the E.B.A. negotiations for union members employed at Chiquita Mushrooms, Unibuilt Constructions and Cleanevent; and also the behaviour of former A.L.P./H.S.U. Federal President Mike Williamson in embezzling some $20 million in Union funds from members of the H.S.U.

    How do either of these things demonstrate anything other than outright contempt for workers and Unionists?

    The Democrats was and is the Party of the Confederacy in the American Civil War.

    They fought to retain slavery, while the Republican Party was set up specifically for the purpose of abolishing slavery. Abraham Lincoln was the first Republican President. He was murdered by the Democrat, John Wilkes Booth.

    The Ku Klux Klan was set up by prominent Democrat, Nathan Bedford Forrest, as a group of Democrat activists to spread the Democrat message, in much the same way as Get-Up is a bunch of Leftard activists working for the A.L.P. and Greens today.

    Barack Obama’s Presidency is proof of the successful achievement of Lyndon B. Johnson’s alleged statement.

    ‘Uncle Tom’ Obama was a black man who for a while led the slavers’ Party which once fought for the retention of slavery in the U.S.A.

    If I was a black person, I know who I’d be voting for – and it sure wouldn’t be the party of the Confederate slavers.

    Yep It bothers me that some peoples interpretation of populism is to give over to the loudest voices. I would have more respect for a greens candidate integrity if they lost for believing in what they do then someone who wins by telling what I wanted to hear to gain power.

    “There is also the false conception of collective justice that enables past wrongs by some members of a particular group to justify blank cheques to be written in favour of all the current members of the previously disadvantaged group against the accounts of everybody else.”
    I can think of another group that has been doing this ad-nauseum for the past 70 years.

    Yes the divisive feminist lobby always played that card. It started small with anti discrim that was ok for a while but the frightbats captured it and ramped up into full on sexism with affirmative action.
