Over the course of the last year and so many months I thought I had heard, from the right and the left, every reason there was for NOT voting for Donald Trump. But I was wrong. And it’s only now, thanks to Tavis Smiley, that I can finally, and very safely so, declare that I have finally heard everything. You see, it was in the form of a recent op-ed he put together for TIME magazine, that Mr. Smiley does little more than rant like a complete imbecile about his fears that blacks in America might one day return to slavery if Donald Trump wins the election. This moron goes on to explain how he was asked by a student during a visit to Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, “Do you believe that given the crisis of our democracy, we black folk could ever find ourselves enslaved again?” The short answer, according to this genius was, “Yes.”
So it was in his little piece entitled, “Why I Fear America Could Enslave Black People Again,” and yes, the entire thing is as stupid as the headline would seem to indicate, that Smiley writes:
“When I hear Donald Trump suggest that he wants to “make America great again,” it always triggers the same three questions in my head.
One: How is Trump defining “greatness?” Two: Since so many fellow citizens have yet to experience the true “greatness” of America for the first time, for whom are we making America great again? And, three: To what specific period of American greatness are you wanting us to “return?”
Smiley remarked that he didn’t see that question coming, nor did “the mostly white audience.” But as it turns out, it would at least seem that he was certainly prepared with an answer. Smiley goes on to write:
“In my lifetime, I have never seen Congress so blatantly mock our Constitution. It’s especially striking that it comes from the political party that’s always lecturing us about the “rule of law”. What’s worse is that they’re getting away with it. Republicans have turned this Constitutional issue into a political football and suckered the White House, Democrats in Congress and the news media into playing the game by their rules. This is a travesty of justice, but it has all but disappeared as a news story.”
And he concludes by writing:
“So, could the Constitution be thwarted and black folk end up enslaved again? Legal scholars, of course, will find the question ludicrous and laughable.
It wasn’t farfetched for the young student who pressed me at Lehigh that evening. And, honestly? With the hair-raising, bone-chilling, spine-breaking, nerve-wracking path we’re on right now, I shudder to think where this democracy could end up one sad day, if we don’t get off this low road and make our way to higher ground soon.”
By making such a blatantly idiotic assumption, Smiley accomplishes little more than to expose to all who chose to read his pathetic little diatribe, his complete and utter ignorance regarding all things related to our Constitution and how our government to supposed to run. I found myself asking, is TIME really this hard-up for readership? Do they REALLY have to bring in some hack to write the dumbest, most idiotic piece of drivel all in the hopes of convincing people to see for themselves what an over-the-top ridiculous left-wing circus this once-great news source has now been reduced to? Because that’s the only reason I would have bothered to click on this stupid thing, that and the fact that it provided me with both material and opportunity to mock this loser Smiley by pointing out what a pathetic fraud and blatant hypocrite he really is.
Smiley’s nonsensical premise as presented in his silly little op-ed is based almost entirely on the rather bizarre liberal lie that Donald Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again” somehow means that he wants to take America back to a time when black people were slaves, women couldn’t vote, and gay people were locked in the closet. It’s typical Democrat scare tactics, just taken up a notch. ‘Slick Willy’ has used the same slogan. It has been for some time now that Smiley has experienced anywhere near the kind of destitution the slaves in America were accustomed to. Having long ago earned his way into the $10 million dollar club, Smiley leads a pretty great life, which in itself would seem to prove that his theory is unfounded, at least for a proud one-percenter like himself.
The crisis in our democracy is one driven by the rise of the socialist left which advocates for whatever it can claim as "promot(ing) the common good" as an excuse to nullify individual rights. It is a centralized, authoritarian government to which Progressives are leading us that is a danger to personal liberty. If enslaving people is "good for society", then the individual freedom of some will have to be sacrificed "for the greater good". You don't matter to government; that's why we have a Constitution that is supposed to guarantee an individual's rights regardless of the will of the majority and whomever they may choose to elect. The crisis is not "of our democracy", but rather of our individual rights. And, seriously folks, does anyone know anyone who even knows of anyone who wants black people to be slaves?
And what appears completely lost on this boob, Smiley, either on purpose or maybe he really is that stupid, is the fact that the Democrat Party, yes the very same party to which old Tavis has apparently sold his soul, is the party of slavery, Jim Crow and segregation. So I’m not able to make the connection here, as Smiley is apparently able to, between Donald Trump being elected president and the sudden reemergence of slavery here in America, at least of the variety which resulted in the Civil War. However, the type of slavery which Smiley seems to be quite comfortable with is the institutional type, the specific purpose of which is to enslave large amounts of Americans, primarily minorities, to the government. And were it not for individuals like Smiley the Democrat Party would never be able to succeed in doing so.
Sadly, the truth is that Blacks like this stooge, Smiley, are nothing more than control agents and gate keepers for the white liberal establishment. They long ago paid off this backstabber in exchange for his loyalty by keeping the low information blacks on the Democrat plantation much like the black gatekeepers the slave owners of the past had during the slavery era, to make sure the slaves did not escape. And in exchange for their loyalty, there was a promise of a life of leisure. What this idiot Smiley and all the other so-called black ‘leaders’ do not realize is that they are all being used in the same exact way. And yet they continue to pledge their undying loyalty to the Democrat Party and criminals like Hitlery. These people are all brainwashed puppets. Man, talk about stupid and ignorant. Welcome to the new white plantation.
