UPDATED: Hate, Antifa and Bamn

Share

UPDATED:  Very rarely do I update something enough to warrant a ‘new’ post.  I have with this.  The updates are scattered throughout.  The problem with the word ‘racism’ is that it is like the little boy who cried wolf.  I like the ‘student’ definition of the word.

“…

  1. belief that certain races of people are by birth and nature superior to others

  2. 2:discrimination or hatred based on race…”

Discrimination is not only evil, it is illegal.  See the difference?  We all think we are superior to someone else.  To refuse to admit we are not is a lie.  Lies are a sin, breaking the Ten Commandments.  Racism is NOT part of the Ten Commandments.  It can morph into something very bad, but very few people, a very small minority, allow this to happen.

I don’t mind admitting I am totally and completely biased totally and completely racist when it comes to the French. They are the scum of the earth.  I can laughingly say this because I am basically a Brit.  I have an true Brittisher’s superiority when it comes to looking down my nose at the French.  When someone who is French looks at me, they do so with disdain.  It is quite funny, actually.  It is not evil.  It is me.  If I were to do something vile, something that harmed someone, that would be different.  Even though I think they are the scum of the earth, if I had a business, I’d still hire someone from France.

ORIGINAL ARTICLE:  I had plans to do a major article tonight about the events of the weekend, but my poodle is not doing well. I’m not in the mood to do much of anything. There is quite a bit going on, and I don’t like what I see.  First, I’m going to suggest you read two posts I did, several years ago.  One of the articles is about the actual numbers of white supremacists and KKK in the United States.

“…There are millions of racists in the United States. There are hundreds of thousands of people who are with organized white supremacist groups. Very few actually commit acts of violence. There are also people who are not part of the white supremacist movement or any ideological movement who commit mass atrocities….”

I am absolutely convinced the current climate of worsening race relations are directly due to cold-blooded political manipulation by Barack Obama and his Administration, extending back to the day of the horrific Charleston shootings.

Racism is NOT evil unless it leads to evil activities.. It is a fact of life. What is evil is allowing racism to morph you into someone who hates. Bigotry is NOT evil. Everyone is a bigot about something. Bias is NOT evil, unless it becomes something worse.. We are all biased. Those attributes make us human. What makes us good people is the ability to rise about those inclinations and learn to treat people decently. What makes an ideology evil are the actions created via hate.  Racism is not a sin.  Neither is bigotry, nor bias.  What is a sin is what happens when it morphs into hate, and people are objectified as absolute nothing.
It has been my bitter experience in life that those who condemn people about racism and bigotry are often the worst bigots of them all. They are the worst because they are so arrogant about how perfect they are. I would rather associate with someone who admits to being racist and bigoted than someone who is both of those things and thinks they are perfect. The man or woman who recognizes their imperfection will be the most human, and more than likely far more tolerant of the human condition than the person who claims otherwise. 
It is about learning to love in spite of, then overlooking and truly caring about someone.   We are to learn to respect others, because of the quality of their character, not the color of their skin, nor the amount of money they have in the bank.  If a person has the love of Christ within them, I don’t understand how they cannot love.
 
Over the years, I’ve also learned that people who claim to be conservative are far less bigoted and far more tolerant of the human condition of liberals who claim they have no bias or bigotry. Conservatives will willingly admit they are biased. Liberals will willingly admit conservatives are biased, but rarely admit to their own. They are also the quickest to condemn anyone who does not agree with their political positions.
One of the very real reasons one cannot honestly and intellectually allow the ‘evil’ status of racism to guide thinking and attitudes is the fact that the greatest modern Christian thinker of them all, C.S.Lewis, is now considered a racist.  The term for ‘racist’ was not actually used until around 1902.
Accusations of racism, when you damn C. S. Lewis as racist are out of control.
Antifa Brown Shirts

If you would notice the people in the brown shirts, I know you are absolutely positive they are neo-nazis or white supremacists. That is your judgement. Unfortunately, you would be wrong. They are the militant arm of BAMN and the Antifa. They are violent, militant, and won’t hesitate to kill anyone who stands in their way. What is basically a cult, their numbers are far higher than actual card-carrying white supremacists.  BAMN created the Trump is a racist lie.  Are they terrorist?

But – if you are liberal, you will immediately tell me I’m lying and refuse to consider the possibility that I am right and you are wrong. It’s called bigotry. Please, enjoy yours.

As far as racism is concerned, if a person cannot tell my beliefs by my actions, over the years, as a person, then there is something wrong with me. I am not going to go out and give lip-service, stating how I am not a racist, and denouncing things I’ve been denouncing and trying to expose for the past twelve years. If you can’t figure out what I believe, by my writing and how I live my life, then I don’t care. I don’t pander.
