Virginia Governor Ralph Northam spoke at an event commemorating the 400th anniversary of Jamestown as the first Democracy. In it, he described the horrors that black slaves had to endure as they were sold in Jamestown weeks after the initial landing. At a separate event 60-miles away, President Trump also spoke about the two pieces of American history. Which leader received rebukes from African-American Democratic lawmakers?
Governor Northam is a racist. He has demonstrated this in the past and continues to promote policies unfairly targeting African-American preborn babies as well as economic policies designed to keep minorities dependent on government. President Trump is not a racist. Despite Tweets that are spun to label the President as a racist, his actions and words say the opposite. His policies have promoted the greatest levels of prosperity for minorities in our nation’s history, far surpassing President Obama’s numbers when it comes to jobs and wages for all Americans, including African- and Hispanic-Americans.
The Democratic Propaganda Machine, better known as mainstream media, is doing everything in its vast powers to echo the false sentiment being put forth by Democrats. They don’t want minorities to see that they’re doing better under President Trump than they were doing before, but numbers don’t lie. Therefore, they have manufactured a “Trump is racist” narrative because “orange man bad” just didn’t seem to resonate as well.
Only two questions need to be answered on this topic:
- Can Republicans break through the false narrative being pushed by Democrats and the media?
- If so, can they do it before the 2020 election?
The answer to the first question is almost certainly “yes” as long as they stay on point and focus on the prosperity that is being generated by their policies. But there’s a major risk in all of this. Democrats are making a concerted effort to tank the economy. They’re using a technique the President himself has often used in which perception becomes reality when it’s promoted loudly enough. In other words, by telling people the economy is heading in the wrong direction and a crash is inevitable, it can be a self-fulfilling prophecy that is hard to counter. Antsy investors hearing rumors may pull back on the reins. Business owners who may be ready to expand could hold off to see what happens next. The economy can be hurt by enough Democrats saying the economy is hurting.
As for the answer to the second question, there’s no way to know at this point. If I were forced to lean in one direction or the other, I’d say the answer is “no.” Unfortunately, Republicans do not have a great track record when it comes to reversing a false premise quickly. They demonstrated this with their abysmal handling of the Obamacare repeal and replace. Given a mandate through elections to fix healthcare, they proceeded to bungle it and completely lost the initiative. By the time they were ready to give it another shot before the 2018 midterms, sentiment had reversed. Not only was repealing Obamacare no longer popular among the people, but the blame for why healthcare prices were rising fell in their laps. It was a textbook example of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
This is why the propaganda is so heavy today. We can expect it to continue straight through to election day. In fact, we can expect to see it expand. Today, the narrative is that Trump is a racist. Tomorrow, it’ll be that all Republican lawmakers are racists. By election day, the narrative will be that anyone who votes for a Republican is a racist. Nobody wants to be a racist, do they?
I’m not going to try to convince any minorities who hate President Trump as a person that he’s not a racist. It’s hard to change hearts and minds when they’ve been indoctrinated so thoroughly in our post-truth society. But I will appeal to common sense and self-preservation. Minorities need to ask themselves if they’re better off today than they were before. Clearly many who did not have a job under President Obama now have a job under President Trump. The economic collapse of 2006-2010 hit minority families hard, but President Obama’s policies didn’t help them out of the situation.
President Trump’s policies have, and to be more accurate, Republican policies have established a new baseline for economic prosperity in America. But looking at the policy proposals by every Democratic candidate for president tells us they do not believe in this prosperity. They’re introducing government-controlled policies that will remove your freedoms and bring more power to Washington DC. If there’s one thing we should all agree on, it’s that giving Washington DC even more power is a terrible thing.
Democrats want to raise your taxes to pay for their pipedreams, and if you are buying into the notion that the tax increases will only effect the rich, I’ll tell you that 2+2 does not equal 5. Their numbers don’t jibe. They know it. But most are willing to lie in order to gain power. At least Bernie Sanders is honest when he says anyone making over $29,000 per year will see a major tax increase in order to pay for his plan to turn hospitals into the DMV, better known as Medicare-for-All. The others, especially Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, are not as honest as Sanders.
You can buy into the propaganda and think Trump is a racist all you want, but don’t let the Democrats and the media convince you destroying our growing economy is a good thing. It’s not. Vote with your heads, not your heart.
