Alternet Doubles Down on Bigoted Accusation that Black Conservatives are Race Traitors

The entire concept of a group owing fealty to a specific political party due to their genetic makeup is entirely offensive to any thinking person, but that is precisely the argument Chauncey DeVega made earlier this week, and one that leftist web site AlterNet and its writer continue to support.

In my original post, I referred to Herman Cain and other black conservatives as "race minstrels" and "mascots" for the White conservative imagination. I stand by this observation.

DeVega's vivid bigotry is his own cross to bear. what is less clear is why Alternet is tolerant of such myopic rhetoric.

Clearly, "diversity" in the liberal lexicon means a superficial diversity of image, while demanding a lock-step ideological conformity. DeVega is a racist, and Alternet enables racism by standing behind him.

"DeVega is a racist, and Alternet is enables racism for standing behind him."

Who cares. As if we don't have bigger fish to fry. The charge of racism is a liberal shoe horn used to denote anyone who is hated by the JudŠo-Liberal PTB, or their coddled minorities that are along for the (free) ride. Once we realize that the charge of hypocrisy is ineffective when used by the powerless towards the powerful, reversing the charge of "racism" is hardly clever. The PTB hardly even snort at such tactics.

I don't like the truth any more than do you, but there it is.

Fixed that for you.

It's offensive, but the pseudo-logical thinking is explained in the Weather Underground's manifesto (

"It is necessary to defeat both racist tendencies: (1) that blacks shouldn't go ahead with making the revolution, and (2) that blacks should go ahead alone with making it. The only third path is to build a white movement which will support the blacks in moving as fast as they have to and are able to, and still itself keep up with that black movement enough so that white revolutionaries share the cost and the blacks don't have to do the whole thing alone. Any white who does not follow this third path is objectively following one of the other two (or both) and is objectively racist."

Obviously, this doesn't apply directly to Cain, but it is the same logic. If you don't support both the goal and the methods of the revolution, you are "objectively" suppressing the black race. Whites are racists and blacks are race traitors.

These people founded the KKK, twice. Racism is the DNA of Democrats. They can't change, anymore than a tiger can turn in its stripes and become a Great Dane.

How is it not clear? They agree.

Interesting. I suppose I'm okay with it as long as I know you read it.

Leftists literally believe that they own Blacks and women. They like to use different words, but by their talk and actions they give it away.
