Fun with progressive racism: 8 policy examples

Fun with progressive racism: 8 policy examples

[Ed. – For the whole family!]

Below you will find eight separate entries, each focusing on a different policy pushed by progressives. Each entry follows the same format:

BOLD: Name of topic. In yellow: A neutral description of the exact proposal which progressives champion. In red: The progressives’ stated justification or explanation behind their position, which hides their real purpose. In red: The inaccurate theory which conservatives mistakenly assume must be the actual progressive motivation. In green: The true racist reason underlying the progressive policy. Plain text: Additional notes on the origins of the progressives’ racist attitude and how it led to this specific policy proposal.


Progressive position:
[Yellow] Restrict access to guns as much as possible; ultimately ban and confiscate them all.
False public rationale offered by progressives to justify their position:
[Red] Gun violence is a scourge on society; easy access to killing machines unnecessarily facilitates murder and crime.

 Conservatives’ inaccurate theory of progressives’ real intent:

[Red] Progressives want to disarm the populace to prevent armed resistance to the eventual imposition of a leftist totalitarian police state.

The actual racist origins of the progressive stance:

[Green] White urban liberals are deathly afraid of black gangbangers with guns, but are ashamed to admit this publicly, so to mask their racist fears they try to ban guns for everyone, as a way of warding off the perception that their real goal is to target blacks specifically.

The basic dividing line in American politics is not (as it once was ) North vs. South, nor is it (as many people now assume) Coasts vs. Flyover Country, but rather Urban vs. Rural:

The new political divide is a stark division between cities and what remains of the countryside. Not just some cities and some rural areas, either — virtually every major city (100,000-plus population) in the United States of America has a different outlook from the less populous areas that are closest to it. The difference is no longer about where people live, it’s about how people live: in spread-out, open, low-density privacy — or amid rough-and-tumble, in-your-face population density and diverse communities that enforce a lower-common denominator of tolerance among inhabitants. …The only major cities that voted Republican in the 2012 presidential election were Phoenix, Oklahoma City, Fort Worth, and Salt Lake City.

Or put more simply: In modern America, liberals live in cities; conservatives live in rural areas. And what else is concentrated in cities? African-Americans, and gun violence:

The 62 center cities of America’s 50 largest metro areas account for 15 percent of the population but 39 percent of gun-related murders.
