This morning at The American Spectator, Jeffrey Lord absolutely nails Barack Obama and his fellow liberal-progressives for exactly the people they are indeed a carbon copy of: Theodore Bilbo.
"I intend raising hell with the money lords, the privileged few, the men who hold 90 per cent of the wealth of the nation." -- Ku Klux Klan Member, Liberal Democrat, US Senator-elect and former Governor Theodore Bilbo of Mississippi, 1934
Theodore Bilbo agreed on two things.
They hated the rich. They judged by race.
Race is the base. The rich are the hitch. Identity politics is all.
First, last and always.
Over time, Americans have learned the hard way that when dealing with progressives or liberals -- the Left -- the race may change. What defines "rich" may change. The century, the decade, the year may change. What never changes is the elemental component of identity politics.
Race is the base. The rich are the hitch. Resenting some other race and always resenting the rich is the game.Be sure to take the time to read the whole thing.
As Lord so aptly notes in his piece, make no mistake, all of this furor over immigration is, in the hands of the Left, 100% all about race. So too is the response from Attorney General Eric Holder's supporters to his imminent contempt citation all about race.
Just like Barack Obama, Theodore Bilbo was a progressive Democrat, a lawyer and educator (albeit Obama was more of a wannabe/fake educator). Just like Barack Obama, Theodore Bilbo of Mississippi built and spent his entire political career selling that old liberal Love Potion Number One: race and class warfare. And just like Barack Obama, Bilbo was not only an enthusiastic supporter of FDR's New Deal. Like Obama, Bilbo was a master at playing the class warfare game, wasting no time in making himself the scourge of the wealthy. And going through the names of various other liberal-progressives, one finds that they are equally as Bilbo-esque as Barack Obama.
