Slavery, Segregation, Solutions, and No Gratitude Part 4 of 5

Slavery, Segregation, Solutions, and No Gratitude
Part 4
by Rev. Dr Paul Samson

Shortly after the Civil Rights movement victories, Democrats began passing laws to help “poor people,” by providing subsidies for food, clothing, and shelter.
As a part of the Great Society, President Lyndon B Johnson believed in expanding the federal government's roles in “helping” black people. Here are some of those programs:
Medicaid Grants to States
Food Stamps (SNAP)
Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)
Housing assistance
Child Nutrition Program (CHIP)
Support Payments to States, TANF
Feeding Programs (WIC & CSFP)
Low Income Home Energy Assistance
Food Stamp Act of 1964
Fifty years and $20 trillion later, LBJ's goal to help the poor become self-supporting has failed.
Or, maybe it accomplished exactly what the racist Democrats wanted in the first place. Unfortunately, blacks became subservient and dependent, rather than free. The Democrats re-enslaved black people with handouts. Black Americans sold their hard won freedom for food stamps and housing subsidies, just as Esau sold his birthright for a bowl of pottage. This biblical example about Esau sees pottage” is something immediately attractive, but of little value, taken foolishly and carelessly, in exchange for something more distant and perhaps less tangible, but immensely more valuable. The phrase alludes to Esau's sale of his birthright for a meal of lentil stew ("pottage") in Genesis 25:29–34 and connotes shortsightedness and misplaced priorities.

Democratic voters declare that property belonging to citizen "A" be confiscated by the government, and given to Citizen "B," or maybe even to a non-citizen. That is fundamen-tally wrong! Anyone who cannot see the violation of morality in that scenario has a cor-rupt soul.
Also, “A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.” George Bernard Shaw
So liberals steal from some citizens, to buy votes from other citizens. This behavior is just plain evil!
So now blacks vote overwhelmingly for Democratic candidates.
Of course, it would have been dramatically more effective and much less expensive to ensure that blacks were fully equal and fully participating in our society. But that obvious solution did not fit the desires of southern Democratic politicians. These racists do not want black people to be free! They want black people to be beholden to Democrats. And in modern times, the political tactics of liberal Democrats have replaced those of the group of southern Democrats, and now almost all Democrats are involved in oppressing black people by encouraging their dependency.
"The only thing you can give a man without hurting him is an opportunity." Henry Ford
A biography of Lynden B Johnson reports this quotation from 1964 which illustrates how Liberals and old school Democrats see the their victory in the war on poverty, “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days, and that’s a problem for us, since they’ve got something now they never had before; the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” —Lyndon B Johnson to two Southern governors on Air Force One.
Johnson’s and Obama’s “wars on poverty” are frauds to keep people poor and dependent on the federal government. By keeping blacks dependent on them, the Democrats “own” blacks, and keep them doing their bidding, their work. This is the modern face of slavery, slavery being something the Democrat party has always owned and has no intention of giving up.
In the mad dash to vilify the Republicans and Conservatives today many have forgotten the fact that it was the Republican Party that was the champion of Civil Rights and freedom for African Americans. Today that story goes either untold or when it is told, those that do so are immediately under attack, and accused of being a racist. Many today would like you to believe that just because Conservatives would rather assist in moving people off the rolls of welfare or any number of assistance programs, we do not care about those that have been conditioned to be dependent on those programs, and that is one of the most fatal mistakes that Progressives make. Conservatives under-stand that people need assistance, but they also understand that it cannot become a lifestyle, that is passed down from generation to generation.

We need to begin accepting that there is an underclass of people who are racist, criminal, use more than they produce, feed at the public trough, produce fatherless children, see themselves as victims, use dangerous drugs, promote prostitution, whose speech is full of vulgarities and reeks of ignorance, and who hate white Americans. Gee, who could that class of people be? Do we have a name for them? Or is the name unspeakable?

Quote from a psychology professor I once had; “People are not who you think they are. People are not who they think they are. People are what they do. That is why this is called the behavioral science." Forget the labels; they are all misleading. By paying attention to, and describing these people, regardless of their color, according to their behavior, all the racist politics dissolve into the nothingness from which they came. The word "racist" was invented by Democrats to buy votes. The social pathology I describe below is not specific to any particular race, and could happen to any ethnic group.
