Adamo: David Axelrod, Democrats Own Racial Tokenism

By Christopher G. Adamo

Every so often, prominent liberals unwittingly divulge their true ideology in its raw ugliness. And when that happens, America must sit up and take note. It is not the flowery assurances of “social justice” or the promised bestowal of goodies from government coffers that motivates them, but the accrual of power that they expect to enjoy as a result. In reality, they have absolutely no intention of uplifting the “little guy,” but rather seek to keep him in his present condition, always awaiting a change of circumstances after the next impending election, as long as he dutifully sells his votes to the Democrats.

When Barack Obama uttered his “bitter clingers” statement back in 2008 at a private fundraiser in San Francisco, he likewise demonstrated the genuine contempt he holds towards America. In his world, those who have built the bridges and skyscrapers, grown the crops, toiled in the mines, and paved Main Street resent the influx of illegal aliens not because they are here in violation of the law and have no stake in the nation’s future, but because they look different from the rest of us. According to liberals, the divisions among Americans are strictly the byproduct of various physical characteristics. Thus the left insidiously perpetuates its caste system to its own political advantage, while remaining indifferent to its detriment of the nation as a whole.

In an interview this week on Univision, a Spanish speaking TV network, senior advisor David Axelrod brazenly made this point by disparaging the possibility of Mitt Romney picking Marco Rubio (R.-FL), the son of Cuban immigrants, as his running mate. According to Axelrod such a choice would be “an insult” to Hispanics. Romney, we must understand, has not toed the Democrat party line of catering to minorities as perennial “victims.” He likewise opposed the whole “amnesty” agenda, and the stealth attempt at implementing amnesty, known as the “Dream Act.”

Forget all of Senator Rubios’ other sterling qualities. His steadfast conservative voice is of no consequence. His stunning oratory in support of his conservatism means nothing at all. This is the world according to liberals. Racial classification trumps every other consideration. From Axelrod’s far left perspective, the only possible asset that Rubio could bring to the Romney campaign is that of his ethnicity.

Ultimately, Axelrod is exhibiting the real disdain he and his kind hold for all Americans, whether or not they can be categorized as minorities. An America united by its common culture and heritage is of little value to the liberal political machine that is first and foremost self-serving. Only if “We the People” is subdivided and Balkanized by leftist racial panderers can the liberal elite hope to ride in as the great benefactors of the helpless peasantry which, in their arrogant minds, is the reality of this country.

It is altogether unfortunate that some still cannot recognize the insidious nature of this ongoing effort to maintain a permanent American underclass, the real purpose of which is to maximize the political clout of the Democrat Party. Rather than providing any means of advancement for those truly in need, the agenda of the entrenched Democrat leaders is designed to preserve the societal maladies that have devastated America, and in particular, its minority communities. And any time a viable effort is made to improve things, it is those same liberal/Democrat patrons who will do their utmost to ensure that no improvements occur.

Out in “flyover country,” far from the callous indifference of Beltway liberals, a sincere attempt to open doors of opportunity for the disadvantaged is being pursued by Bobby Jindal, the conservative Republican Governor of Louisiana. Through Governor Jindal’s tireless efforts, a school voucher program has been established in his state, by which parents can opt to send their children to private schools, utilizing the funding that would otherwise have gone into public “education.” When fully implemented, it will liberate major portions of Louisiana’s youth population from the ideological and academic wastelands of the government school system. So of course the liberal political machine vehemently opposes it.

“Mainstream” media reports of the program have been predictably alarmist, and hopelessly biased. In a June 1, 2012 Reuters editorial, bogusly presented as a “news” story, readers were deluged with not-so-subtle warnings of the horrors of private schools that teach “Bible based math,” and science classes that do not fixate on evolution. All of the fear mongering notwithstanding, does anyone doubt that a pupil thus educated would not only be capable of balancing a budget, but could also understand the moral imperative of doing so? More significantly, the involvement of parents in the decision to send their children to such places is of little consequence to those who believe it is the duty of the ruling class to determine where children are educated, and whose ideology is instilled in them.

Minorities are particularly likely to reap real gain from Jindal’s endeavor. It is inarguable that the nation’s worst schools are found in minority neighborhoods, and for reasons that have far more to do with the skewed priorities of the education bureaucracy. Therefore a ticket out, and the promise of a good education at a private school, could only work to the betterment of minority children who are otherwise condemned to a public school “education” that is abysmally lacking. Once again, the prospect of offering such opportunity to these children is abhorrent to liberal politicians.

Other opponents of the voucher program warn of the loss of revenues to government schools as a result of the money being diverted to competing private schools. In truth, every such effort to oppose Governor Jindal is a flagrant attempt to put the interests of the public “education” bureaucracy above the well-being of the students and, in the long run, the future of the nation.

Once the dust settles, the people of Louisiana, and indeed the entire country will be faced with only one workable option. In America’s currently struggling economy, the choice is to maximize students’ learning, thereby giving them the skills to be valued employees once they graduate, or to spend exorbitant sums of money and years of their time saturating them in identity politics and convincing them that their only future is to stand in Barack Obama’s soup lines.

    Not only does the Democrat Party by its insidious nature pursue this ongoing effort to maintain a permanent American underclass for the real purpose of maximizing the political clout of the Democrat Party, when the inconvenient founding American truths of individual freedom and personal success begin to work their magic and people begin to accumulate capital and become successful and realize the true American dream,,,,,,,this gets in the way and puts Democrats and their policy of failure in the minority and also in jeopardy, so the threatened Democrats MUST actively seek to illegally import even more of the international minority underclass of poverty in order to sustain a large enough majority sector of American society in poverty to ensure their voting base and their hold on power. They care nothing about the poverty of their people, but only on maintaining the power of the poverty of their ideas to sway votes in their favor. It is the socialist collective aggregation of the weak that they would use to secure their power and strength, and in so doing, weaken the structure of American society to set it up for conquest. No matter what they proclaim on the outside in speech, a successful America and successful Americans are the real threat to their base of power, and must be taxed to death, demonized at every opportunity, and kept in a minority status lest they become the moral majority our founders intended them to be, and vote the party of dependency from power.

    You forget, Axelrod is a Democlown and represents Obozo the Democlown president. As such he is allowed to denigrate whomever he pleases in any way he pleases. You know, it’s kind of like how the rappers use the “N” word. Axelrod can say anything nasty about anyone who isn’t lily white that he wants.

    Notice that most of these liberal politicians send their own children to private school. Clearly, public school isn’t good enough for them. But then who would their children have to subjugate if the playing field were leveled on education? It is easier to control ignorant people.

    “I am afraid that there is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.”

    Over one hundred years ago, Booker T. Washington (1856-1915) wrote the above in his book, My Larger Education -1911. I don’t know of whom Mr. Washington was specifically speaking in 1911, but his statement certainly applies to the Democrat party and it’s race hustling acolytes in 2012.

    I keep thinking to myself that there is a “light” at the end of the tunnel in that we are seeing some examples of the voters beginning to “wise up” or, at least, be better informed, and we know that this whole mess cannot be fixed until we elect politicians across the country that are committed to doing the hard things needed to turn it around. The Wisconsin recall election results are encouraging as are the recent changes in union agreements agreed to by the voters in San Diego and San Jose, which are cities in California. These moves are aimed at the incestuous relationship between liberal politicians and public service unions which is one of the primary problems in our country at all levels of government.

    This relationship is not only bankrupting government at all levels due to large and unsustainable financial liabilities, but they work together to facilitate the many social programs that have grown, through their efforts, to financially unsustainable levels. And, as we have seen, the public service unions and the Democrat politicians they control, have taken political control of several major cities and large state governments in states like California and New York. They have successfully grown large segments of voters through the so-called safety net government programs that are registered Democrats and always vote for liberal politicians who cater to them.

    I live in California and many voters do not bother to vote anymore because when a liberal politician is nominated, in some cases with only single digit percentages of the vote, they always get elected. Conservatives in California are a disenfranchised segment of the voting public and only have representatives from the few districts that have a significant number of Republican voters. There is no “checks and balance” anymore in the California government at any level anymore and the root cause of the demise of California as a once great state that was a leader and the envy of other states. The state of New York is following along the same path as it has also embraced a broadbased liberal agenda which is financially unsustainable and has set the state up for huge problems of all kinds.

    Both states are losing companies and tax base while growing population in the entitlement and lower income segments of the population which means cost is increasing while revenue is decreasing which is a formula for disaster. And…under Obama, the same dynamic is happening bigtime at the national level with no end in sight except for potential disaster.

    The American public must be able to see this, don’t you think? Why would anyone with any reasonable amount of good commonsense continue to vote for liberal politicians that are pushing these very liberal and destructive policies?

    “David Axelrod brazenly made this point by disparaging the possibility of Mitt Romney picking Marco Rubio (R.-FL), the son of Cuban immigrants, as his running mate.”

    Actually it’s none of Axelrod’s concern who Romney chooses. Obama remarked that the rhetoric should be toned down well over a year ago, but the Democrats either didn’t get the memo or ignored it.

    The sooner we rid ourselves of these scum, the better off this country will be. They spew their lies and vitriol, but they refuse to acknowledge that they are destroying the country.
