America bashing has become the favorite pastime of the far left. So-called progressives who, in reality, are Marxists, excoriate America as a nation founded by white men for white men. They even reject the Declaration of Independence, labeling it a racist document. These ideologically blind politicians claim our country is guilty of systemic racism and perpetuating “white privilege.” According to them, Black Americans are still in bondage in the United States.
U.S. Reps. Maxine Waters and Cori Bush have added their voices to the chorus of leftists spreading this absurd and divisive nonsense. In his Independence Day address, President Joe Biden — mumbling and stumbling through the cue cards prepared by his puppet masters — agreed with Waters and Bush. Ironically, there is a sense in which Biden and company are right. A lot of Black Americans are still in bondage, but not to slavery or to white Americans. Rather, they are repressed by hypocritical politicians who shackle them for life to the socialist government programs of a nanny state.
Claims of systemic racism are so patently absurd and blatantly at odds with reality that it would be easy to disregard them as the rantings of ill-informed people who don’t know better. But that would be a mistake because Waters and Bush are not ignorant. Rather, their rantings are the result of hubris and hypocrisy. They know their claims are false, divisive and destructive. They are intended to be.
In our pluralistic nation, we need elected officials who are committed to uniting diverse people. We don’t need politicians who use their positions of influence to sow discord, distrust and hatred. Dividing the American public into warring tribes based on race, gender and other factors helps no one except, of course, America’s enemies and the Marxist politicians who exploit Black Americans for their own nefarious purposes and power.
Here are a few pertinent but inconvenient questions that Americans with a more accurate grasp of reality should ask Waters, Bush and their fellow travelers on the far left: If you, as Black women, are still in bondage as you assert, and if America is guilty of systemic racism, how did you manage to win seats in the U.S. House of Representatives? If you are oppressed as you contend, how is it that American taxpayers — many of whom are white and living from paycheck to paycheck — pay you an annual salary of $174,000 and allow you to retire with a lifetime pension of 80% of your salary, or $139,200? There are a lot of Americans — many of them “privileged whites” — who would gladly trade paystubs with you poor oppressed Marxist politicians any day.
Further, if America is guilty of perpetuating white privilege, why does our nation now have the most diverse Congress in its history? If Black Americans are still in bondage as you alledge, how is it the percentage of congressional seats they hold equals their percentage of the U.S. population (13%)? If ours is a racist nation, how did the Civil Rights Act of 1964 pass and why did more than 600,000 Americans — most of them white — die in the Civil War to end slavery?
If America is guilty of systemic racism, how is it we elected a Black president — Barack Obama — and a mixed-race vice president — Kamala Harris? Neither of these minority candidates could have been elected without the support of white voters who, to date, are still the majority voting bloc in America? Claims by Marxist politicans that America is guilty of systemic racism are patently false and those who proffer such fictitious accusations are guilty of hubris and hypocrisy.

The government allows unwed mothers to be wed to the government – thus being enslaved and dependent on their masters.
These Dishonorable liberal Democrat phony anti-racist crusades have little or nothing to do with protecting the sensitivities of Black Americans and everything to do with the Democrats setting themselves up as their saviors. Their practice of patronizing groups cannot yield to the facts that the Democrat Party has a long history of racial discrimination. For their cause is not defending the oppressed or the offended but about making themselves look wonderful with their latest destructive political Con.
Where is the criticism for every country in Africa being built by black men for black men? or for China being built by Chinese men for Chinese men? or Japan for being built by Japanese men for Japanese men, or any country in S. or Central America being built by hispanic men for hispanic men? Why do whites alone have to give up what they’ve built to carpetbaggers from other races with this gross double standard? POC insist the countries they founded are THEIRS with whites shunned as “colonialists” but white countries must welcome POC or else they’re racist? Too bad the lib half of whites are stupid enough to accept this HYPOCRISY from non-whites.
AHH, but its only WHITE NATIONS that can never ever be ‘for white people’. EVERY OTHER ethnicity can build for THEIR OWN KIND, but we whites can’t..
Our country has been working for two centuries and will continue to work if people stop looking for grass greener in other countries to bring it to us, because all we get is burnt out grass, communism and socialism.
Why do people still want to come to this country? For the freedoms we offer. Or to steal our food, water and mineral resources…
IF we are so racist of a nation, WHY DO MILLIONS Of illegals, FLOOD into our nation year after year!?!?
If anyone is guilty of perpetuating white privilege it is the white liberal leftist who ram it down eveybody’s throat while maintaining their own power of the narrative. They are the ones who KNOW what’s best for both side, black or white, becasue they hold the power of the purse in these matters and not the minorities!
The dumbest ones always seem to be the white LIBERAL WOMEN, who seem to think THEY KNOW what is/isn’t white privilege/racism, EVEN going so far as to try and CORRECT BLACKS…
