The Left’s race-based politics silences genuine debate

Rebel Staff

With few exceptions, a rich black person has more in common politically with a rich white person than black people in general, and vice versa.

There are issues and interests that transcend the superficial aspect of race, and the rigid identities that box people into a particular ideology. Today, the left does this to the extreme, with race-based politics.

Nazism boxed in German whites the same way liberals box in African-Americans. That is to say, both Nazis and liberals tell people that, if you’re not part of our movement, you’re not a “real” member of the race you happen to be. You’re somehow the enemy’s supporter.

This, of course, isn’t true. In the marketplace of ideas, there are black conservatives in the same way there are black socialists and black communists, and so on. Too many on the left insist that their ideas are the cornerstone of an entire race’s ideas, when that’s not the truth.

How do I know this? Look at the statistics.

Democrats heavily support abortion rights and gun restriction. African-Americans, on average, though, heavily support restrictions on abortion and tend to not support anti-gun restrictions.

In addition, although the Democrats want you to believe that Hispanics universally support them, in the recent election, 30 per cent of the Hispanic vote went to Trump.

In Canada, the Ontario government controlled by the Liberals would have you believe that the new sex ed curriculum (that would introduce concepts like gender fluidity to children) is supported by minority communities. Nope. Go to anti-sex ed marches and see. The majority of people in the anti-sex ed marches are non-white.

As you can see, I’m about as black as a paved road. The left in the western world would look at me and say, “Because you’re black, you should think (x) and (y). If you don’t think (x) or (y), you’re a house nigger or a coon.”

In reality, it’s true that some legislation, particularly in the past, disportionately affected me. However, more so than a black person, I am an individual. You are an individual. And our social, economic, and political opinions should not be hinged on or dependant merely on our race, like the left would have you believe.

So why does the left continue to do this? WATCH this video for my answer.

If you want to get your message across you might want to use language the average person will understand. Identify your audience…. (Learned in Communications class 101)

“The Left’s race-based politics silences genuine debate.”
…but that is their plan – it’s not an unintended consequence!
They’re not stupid, they’re evil.

Peter Netterville very true , the troll proof will only last so long.

You’re cool, and funny. You talk way too fast for dumb rednecks like me though. Lol. Actually my neck is almost purple

Black, white, yellow, brown, purple, orange, whatever.
Jay you have such a well balanced intelligent delivery of what to most seems like common sense. Well, what used to be common. Always enjoy and look forward to your future posts.

Both Fascism and Marxism force people into pre defined narrow identity rolls – we see this in their race politics – if a black, or asian or Muslim person is free thinking and refuses to be narrowly defined by intolerant leftist identity cages, they are derided as uncle toms or race traitors – proving how degenerate leftist dogma is.

Jay, why must continuously muddy the waters with common sense? You’re completely undermining the popular Liberal and MSM narrative…. in other words, the status quo. Everybody knows that the status quo is in all of our our best interest….. that’s why it’s the status quo. Just ask JT and Craig Oliver. You’re just a shit disturber, injecting facts, statistics and logic into the equation. Very uncool!

Mannie buttercup reece called Jay the Rebel’s house niggar, or token Somali to be more accurate and it was from another thread. However, neither he or any other troll ever come to Jay’s comment section to address anything he says directly. How could they?

Drew said, " … still troll proof since he is not white."

Well, he is a right winger so that nullifies his “black” advantage.

More reality from Jay, and still troll proof since he is not white. I wonder how many people would prove his point if he were not on the Rebel?
