Go Ahead, Call Me a Racist

I remember this time four years ago. The election was wrapping up and it was pretty clear that Obama was about to be elected. I admit that I was not a big fan of Sen. McCain, but Missouri was a toss up state then and so I voted for him. I was actually at a balloon decorator’s convention the night of the election. It was called pretty early and I just had to get away and mourn. I wasn’t mourning that McCain had lost. I was mourning because I knew we lost another four years and chances to overturn Roe v. Wade.

As much as I was saddened I must say that part of me was also satisfied as the days grew closer to the inauguration. I was thrilled to see our first black president. Even if I disagreed with him on almost every issue at least we had finally broken through that mark. I have been in the midst of racial divides my entire life. My grandfather was a KKK member, but my mom’s best friend was black. I’ve been the only white guy at parties and even joined the step team (TAD Teens Accepting Diversity) in high school. No, I didn’t have the rhythm to dance, but I did help with some projects. I thought like so many on that day that we would begin to heal racial wounds in this country. Sadly, I was mistaken.

In the last four years we have had more racial divides than any other time in my life. Every time I disagree with President Obama I’m called a racist. Every time I state a statistic about inner cities I’m told how hateful I am. It amazes me that the slogan of the left has become “Stop the Hate” while they throw slurs like tea-baggers around and treat conservatives as though we were all Nazis.

Growing up in the south, even though I had black friends, I have had to fight against judging people based on race. I’m not racist, but that is only because of God’s grace and a constant fight. You see, you get what you expect most of the time in life. If you go around thinking all people of any race are a certain way you’ll find it to be true because that is what you’re focused on. If you think all liberals are ignorant or all conservatives are racist then that is what you’ll find.

From my experience, the best way to make someone into a racist is to continuously call them a racist. When someone is constantly being told that their beliefs and principles are racist even though they have nothing to do with race then over time it becomes a slow transition that they believe what they’re being told and they actually become racist. This is especially true if someone is not a Christian and studying God’s Word that teaches us that the only race is the human race.

I share Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream that one day we will not be judged by the color of our skin. Sadly, that day seems pretty far off for most people.

I mentioned earlier that when President Obama was elected I mourned. As I said I wasn’t mourning because of my love for Sen. McCain, but rather because I so long to see an end to abortion in this country. Thousands of babies are massacred daily and we get distracted by issues that mean more for our wallet than the lives of the children. Don’t get me wrong. I’m a fiscal libertarian. I truly believe that outside of defense the government has an almost non-existent role to play in our lives. Yet, how can our tax rate or unemployment benefits compare to the the holocaust (yes, I realize how emotional that word is and I mean to invoke that very emotion) atrocity of abortion?

What saddens me even more is that black Americans, who are the greatest target of this genocide, continue to vote over-overwhelmingly for pro-abortion candidates. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, was an avowed racist and believed in wiping out the “Negro” race and is yet lifted up as a hero.

“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

— Margaret Sanger’s December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts.

“[Slavs, Latin, and Hebrew immigrants are] human weeds … a deadweight of human waste … [Blacks, soldiers, and Jews are a] menace to the race.”

“Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need … We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock.”

— Margaret Sanger, April 1933 Birth Control Review

This woman is the epitome of a monster, and her legacy is the murder of millions.

I remember watching televangelist Jesse Duplantis late one night. He was talking about why people vote different way and he said that black people don’t kill their babies and are just worried about feeding them and that is why they vote for democrats. If only that were true. When I heard that I did some research on it and while the number may have changed it said that black women are 17% of the population and almost 40% of abortions.

Black women are murdering their babies at over twice the rate of others! Margaret Sanger’s dream of eugenics is coming true.

No other race or group votes with as much fervor for one party as black Americans vote for the democrat party and they are rewarded by being wiped out.

We have to put an end to this tragedy! We have to stop the murder of these babies. How can we claim to be the greatest country on earth while killing over a million babies a year?

Many will say that it is decided law and that I fight a losing battle. Well so was slavery and that barbarity was done away with and I believe we can put an end to this one as well. And if it takes being lied about and called a racist or a sexist or a hater or any other slur then so be it. I will not be stopped. I will not slow down. I will not be deterred. And if everyone else falls away then I will stand and I stand mighty because I know my God is with me.

“Remember this and stand firm, recall it to mind, you transgressors, remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose,'”

(Isa 46:8-10)
