Democrats’ Day of Infamy: The Pernicious Influence of Multiculturalism
On June 8 a group of some twenty leading Congressional Democrats – including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer – knelt down and bowed their heads in the Emancipation Hall of the US Capitol building in Washington in DC. Contrary to appearance, the purpose of this solemnity was not to honor God. The Democrats performed this act of self-abnegation in capitulation to Black Lives Matter whose members have been pressurizing citizens of this country to kneel down in acknowledgment of their claims and grievances. Black Lives Matter (BLM) is a Marxist organization that claims that America is an irredeemably racist and unjust society that oppresses black people. Because of this deeply rooted racism, BLM insists, American institutions and ways of doing things must be torn down and replaced with a new order. To make this point clear, BLM has organized and spearheaded riots across the country that attacked symbols of American culture and destroyed dozens of cities. The burning of the American flag and chants of “F-ck America!” have been commonplace at such events. In one of the recent events the protestors also chanted “F-ck your Jesus!” It is difficult to see the relevance of this blasphemous obscenity except as the nihilistic desire to desecrate anything and everything that has to do with this country’s history and heritage.
Day of infamy: Leading Congressional Democrats selling out their own culture
Needless to say, the claims of BLM are completely false. The fact is that America is not a racist society. Not only do black people in America have the same rights as the white majority, they enjoy special rights and privileges (to which looting privileges are the latest addition) that the rest do not. The list of these is long and we have already covered the subject elsewhere (see here and here). For now, let us just mention the special quotas for minorities in government employment and contracts as well as in university admissions. Only last month the US Department of Justice found that a major IVY league university is in violation of civil rights laws by illegally discriminating in its admission procedures against white and Asian students in favor of blacks. Apparently at Yale white and Asian students have a ninety percent lower chance of being admitted than their black counterparts with comparable scores. This is nothing but an unseemly form of racism, but this racism is certainly not directly against black candidates. Such pro-black discriminatory practices are completely common throughout the American system of higher education as well as in other spheres of life.
The Democrats’ kneeling ceremony was ostensibly conducted in memory of George Floyd, a violent serial criminal whose death has been presented as evidence of racism in America. It is racism, they say, that inspired the act of police excess that resulted in Floyd’s death. But within days of the incident there was already a large body of evidence that clearly showed that Floyd’s demise occurred as a result of drug overdose. The autopsy revealed no evidence of trauma to his torso or to his breathing apparatus, proving that Floyd was not killed by the cop who held him. George Floyd died due to a cardiopulmonary arrest brought on by a lethal dose of Fentanyl in his system which was three times the fatal level. (If you are interested, we recommend this excellent analysis of the event which includes links to relevant primary sources.) The reason Floyd was put into hold was because the policemen on the scene determined, correctly it appears, that he was suffering from excited delirium (EXD). Excited delirium
