Fun Quote:

The black comedian George Wallace (Yes, that's his name!) once said:

"Oh, yeah, I heard about slavery. That's the last time all the black people had jobs."


One America, Two Europes


John Kerry has been saying there are two Americas. According to the 2000 electoral map, it certainly looked that way. There it was for all to see, the "red" states, which ironically were the ones that voted Republican, and the "blue" states, the ones that supported the Democrats.

The red states were a picture of old, Middle America. It included the South, the Midwest, and the West. The blue states were New England, New York, California; in other words, the Northeast and the trendy West.

But this does not represent two Americas. The electorate of the blue states have exactly the same opinions of almost every issue that Canadians have. And Canadian politics is not the slightest bit different from any other European politics.

The blue states and Europeans agree on foreign policy, they agree on gun control, they agree on socialized medicine. Is there one single item of social or political outlook in which John Kerry and his voters are not entirely European?

John Kennedy had far more personal connections in Europe than he did in the United States. If it weren't for the accent, it would be difficult to tell the difference between a professor at Oxford or a professor at Harvard.

Canada is Little Europe on the American continent. So are the blue states.

There are two Europes, not two Americas.


I TOLD You So!


I doubt seriously whether the Kerry campaign will recover. Democratic Senator Zell Miller, a keynote speaker at the Republican convention, probably single-handedly derailed the Kerry campaign.

There is something fatal about nominating a liberal Democrat from Massachusetts and then having him campaign nationally for weeks. With the Bush Administration in so much trouble, the Democrats might have elected Edwards of North Carolina.

And Clinton wouldn't have minded Edwards as the presidential candidate in 2004. Whatever happened, if Edwards had a less Clinton-like Northerner as his VP nominee, the Clintons might not have stabbed him in the back.

I may be paranoid, but I know power politics. I know Bill Clinton does NOT want Kerry to win. I know that the media doesn't subtly turn against Kerry this way, leaving him lone and shouting and looking like it, entirely by accident.

So the star of the Republican show was a Southern Democrat. Damn, he was GOOD!

You may have thought that Republicans had a monopoly on stupidity. As long as they keep nominating presidential candidates from Massachusetts, stupidity remains safely duopolistic.


The White Shift Right


It has been noticed that many states have become totally controlled by the Democrats because of their growing minority populations. What is amazing is that the Republican Party still exists at all.

As I point out in Why Johnny Can't Think: America's Professor-Priesthood we pay our universities to produce whole generations of liberals at public expense. At the same time we are importing liberal votes by the millions.

The serious polls show that universities are doing their job. They are not turning out a solid group of liberal youth the way we pay them to, but young college graduates are well to the left of the general population.

Before you recite the tired old line that youth is radical, let me remind you that there is nothing radical about liberalism. In the real world the college-educated population has generally been to the RIGHT of the general population. In 1896 students at Yale rioted to prevent the economically left-wing William Jennings Bryan from speaking on campus, just as they would riot to prevent a conservative from speaking today.

But despite manufacturing liberals at public expense and importing them by the millions, there is a Republican president and a Republican majority in both Houses of Congress. That can only be because the population of non-imported people, of people who did not recently graduate from college, and of college graduates who have outgrown their college indoctrination must have grown stupendously.


There'll Come a Time


The white population is moving right and giving Republicans all their victories. Meanwhile the Republican Party is desperately trying to prove it isn't "racist" by knocking itself out to get some non-white votes it will never get.

The Whig Party tried to do the same thing in the middle of the last century as the issue of the expansion of slavery into the Western territories became central. The Whigs avoided the issue. They held the White House in 1853 and they were not even on the national ballot in 1856.

It won't happen that fast this time. But this time, it is happening to BOTH parties. When the Whig Party disappeared, the Democrats survived.

But if you look at "the white shift right," you begin to see that the white Democratic leadership depends more and more on the abject obedience of their faithful colored companions. If the Democratic Party wins a majority in Congress again, its leadership will be heavily black on the committees. And those Tontos might not forever settle for a white face at the top.

Can a party that is really run by minorities hold together? The NAACP has been taken over by blacks -- the NAACP never had a BLACK president until the 1970s! – and it has not exactly thrived. The NAACP is out fighting Confederate flags while even blacks admit they have far more pressing problems that organization is not in any way dealing with.

So let's face it. Soon there will be a white party and a party for the OTHER minorities. Republicans scream this cannot be true. Democrats scream that Republicans are not "appealing to" minorities, so they're racists.

In the real world our system becomes more racial every day. In the world that is coming, neither Republicans nor Democrats have any place.
