Center for American Progress: Racism is key to Democratic Party Future.

January 10, 2018

Next week the nation will celebrate the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Liberals will pay lip service to Dr. King. But the hard fact is that the American Left has long since abandoned Dr. King.

One has only to recall Dr. King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech in August of 1963 to understand exactly how deeply the American Left has rejected not just Dr. King but in fact stayed true to the original racist roots of the Democratic Party.

Today, to believe as Dr. King did — that people should “not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character” — is to be seen as racist. (Or, as ex-CNNer Soledad O’Brien said of me for daring to believe as did Dr. King — “a stone cold racist.”) Up is now down, and down is now up.

For further confirmation that Dr. King would now be regarded as a racist, look no further than one Laurie Rubel, a Brooklyn College math education professor who drew attention recently for saying this, as noted at Campus Reform:

Color-blindness, too, can be an issue for math teachers, according to Rubel, who asserts that “Teachers who claim color-blindness — that is, they claim to not notice the race of their students — are, in effect, refusing to acknowledge the impact of enduring racial stratification on students and their families.

By claiming not to notice, the teacher is saying that she is dismissing one of the most salient features of the child’s identity and that she does not account for it in her curricular planning and instruction,” Rubel adds, citing education theorist Gloria Ladson-Billings.

In other words, the American Left — and its political party of choice that was founded in the crucible of support for slavery, a party that fueled its progressive policies with racism, segregation, lynching and the Klan has now retreated to its origins. Dividing Americans by race, obsessing with race and using race as the fuel for its agenda of the day. With a promise to divide America by race in perpetuity.

Fox News reported that “Richard Rose, president of the Atlanta branch of the NAACP told FOX 5 Atlanta the administration’s support for promoting off-shore drilling ‘could have a devastating effect in Georgia, Alabama, other states along the coast, and throughout the world.’”

That’s right. The African-American community is enjoying its own jobs boom in the Trump era and the NAACP is angry about… offshore drilling. Which would, of course, doubtless employ even more black Americans.

The formula here is not hard to discern. The idea is always to merge the progressive left with racial identity.

Defending Dreamers is a Moral Imperative and a Defining Political Moment for Democrats.

Here’s the key line:

The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also a critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success.

And there it is. The Center for American Progress Action Fund admitting flat out that Democrats must play the race card — illegal immigration in this instance — to ensure “the Democratic Party’s future electoral success.” Just as Bilbo tied white racial identity to progressive politics now it’s the idea of tying brown racial identity to progressive politics for “future electoral success.

I'll add that if the race card doesn't work for them in all instances, then they begin to play the gender card.  Both of these can be valid accusations, but they don't really apply to any party more than the other, imo.
