Black conservative: Black people worse off under liberals than slavery or Jim Crow
Liberal policies have left black Americans worse off than they were under slavery and Jim Crow-era policies, argued a black conservative commentator.
Mychal Massie, who is best known for his viral 2012 screed against the Obamas, argues that out-of-wedlock births, single-parent homes, abortion rates, and incarceration rates for black Americans have all risen sharply since affirmative action laws and the 1964 Civil Rights Act were enacted by “bigoted neo-Leninist liberals.”
“Before neo-Leninist liberals decided to punish all of white America for the evil white Democrats had perpetrated, blacks took pride in positive accomplishment and the pursuit of modernity,” Massie wrote in his World Net Daily column.
He doesn’t consider whether racist policies or attitudes might yet be to blame for some of the social indicators he cited, but instead argues that liberal policies have created “disdain for modernity” among blacks.
“But don’t tell blacks that, because the majority are too blind, dumb and ignorant to understand this,” Massie argued. “There was a time blacks embraced being Americans and the virtues of same; but that mindset has ultimately taken a backseat to the shrill invidious voices of those who preach the vitriolic heterodoxies of Marxism.”
He argues that “there is no greater form of racism and bigotry than race-based ‘affirmative action’” – which he says liberals promote because they don’t believe black people can accomplish things on their own and to also prevent them from achieving things on their own.
“Neo-Leninist liberals in their bigoted pomposity have orchestrated a pogrom of such magnitude as to destroy the sense of purpose and sense of true self-worth in the majority of blacks today,” Massie wrote. “Neo-Leninists have successfully blinded many blacks to the importance of their embracing modernity.”
He complained that black people are inaccurately taught that “economic freedom” will improve their circumstances – which describes as a “lie from the pit of hell.”
“Economic freedom is not the elevation of the masses to achieve wealth,” Massie argues. “Rather, it is the freedom of the individual to self-determine through the opportunities available to all, to achieve a level of financial attainment based on self-initiative without government dictating what is possible or not possible based on governments’ definition of same.”
