In my last tidbit, I began identifying some of the liberal tactics of contemporary racism. Their number one tactic, in my opinion, is: ‘word re-definition’. In short, liberalism manipulates words using the bullhorns of the Cultural Trinity: media; academia; entertainment…as hammers of pseudo moral authority to impose the term ‘racist’ on all people with whom they politically disagree!!
Liberal word re-definition focuses on three areas:
1.change definitions of words
2.add to definitions of words
3.create entirely new words (one I failed to mention in my last
…all for the purpose of accusing others of the very thing of which they are guilty!!! I repeat, liberals justify their own racism by simply pointing a pseudo moral finger of authority at others while shouting “racist” or “bigot”; or any other of their long list of pejoratives…as loudly as they can!
Last tidbit I showed how liberals changed the definition of the word ‘racism’ to mean ‘White racism’; when appropriate in order to attain political power. Allow me to offer another example of the liberal tactic of ‘word re-definition’: “people of color”. The term “people of color”, has recently gained popularity, and at its core, is an innocuous phrase. For example, Frederick Douglass used similar language in one of his many powerful statements: “It is evident the White and Black must fall or flourish together. In light of this great truth, laws ought to be enacted, and institutions established—all distinctions, founded on the complexion, and every right, privilege and immunity, now enjoyed by the white man, ought to be as freely granted to the man of color.”
Knowing Frederick Douglass, and the context of this statement, as well as the times that he spoke these incredible words, lends to the understanding that the term “man of color” was ‘not’ a racist statement. On the other hand, knowing the people who use “people of color” in this day, the contexts in which they use it, lends to the exactly opposite conclusion! You must remember, we live in a day when liberalism is deceiving and being deceived—because it is a doctrine of atheism!
I offer two reasons to support my contention that the term “people of color” falls under the category of the re-definition of words, and is therefore more often than not, used as a racist term:
1.Every human being with melanin should be included in “people of
color”. Because Whites have melanin in their skin, they should be
included under the category of ‘people of color’—because
melanin controls skin hue. On the contrary, only humans without
melanin have no color, and they are biologically known as albino,
which is a genetic abnormality—not a definition of White people!
2.The term ‘people of color’ is not inherently racist, yet that is the
foundation for its potential to deceive. In other words, liberals
use the term to refer to all non-White people, which by default
separates the world into two groups: White and non-White
people—encouraging the “me against them” or “us against the
world” mentality— which is the spirit of superiority, i.e. racism.
Therefore, the term ‘people of color’:
a.is a willful separation of the world into two-groups;
for the purpose of dividing.
b.possesses a natural, unconscious, spirit of superiority
for those claiming to be ‘people of color’.
Furthermore, this very same “superiority spirit”, as well as re-definition of words, is seen in the term ‘Black lives matter’. I mean, who could honestly object to the idea that Black lives matter—other than a full-blown racist? Of course, Black lives—in fact--do matter! However, the liberal organization Black Lives Matter revealed the true spirit behind their use of the term ‘black lives matter’, when they arrogantly rejected the idea that ‘all lives matter’. The lives of Black people matter because Blacks are created in God’s image and likeness--and that is THE ONLY reason!!! Yet, Black people are not uniquely created in God’s image—all humans are created in God’s image! As a matter of fact, the specific truth that Black lives matter, must logically rest upon the universal truth that all lives matter! Said another way, ‘Black lives matter’ originates from ‘all lives matter’!! Yet, when the organization BLM was confronted with this obvious universal absolute ‘truth’ that ‘all lives matter’, over and over again, all across the nation, BLM people rejected ‘all lives matter’, declaring the very term--‘all lives matter’--racist!!!
This reveals the ‘spirit of superiority’ behind the organization BLM! In their arrogance, they unveiled--for all the world to see--their driving core belief: Black lives matter more than all lives matter—which is a philosophical impossibility! Of course, if you go to their present website—they have ‘now’ changed their mission statement and power principles to reflect the obvious universal truth that all lives matter!
The final evidence for my accusation of BLM’s racism is also found in their former mission statements, and tv interviews. In spite of video evidence of BLM protestors directing their racial venom at White police: “pigs in a blanket, fry’em like bacon”; or “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want them? Now!”
They tried to clear-up this catastrophe in former mission declarations, declaring that they oppose police brutality.
Of course, any reasonable person will agree that it is logical and rational to oppose police brutality. Who in their right mind would want to encourage police brutality? In other words, opposition to police brutality is a universal truth applicable to all people—not just Black people! Yet, following their original logic—‘all lives matter’ is racist--BLM can only oppose police brutality against Blacks—not all people! Why? The BLM organization boldly… arrogantly…and repeatedly---over time--declared that ‘all lives matter’ is racist! Because the organization rejects ‘all lives matter’ as racist, it must logically follow that they can only oppose police brutality against Black people—not all people! They cannot have it both ways!!! Either they support the universal truth ‘all lives matter’, that supports the specific truth, ‘Black lives matter’--or they don’t!! BLM cannot logically pick-out support for one universal truth: “oppose police brutality for all”; while rejecting the other universal truth “all lives matter” as racist!! At best, it is called inconsistency; at worst, it is called hypocrisy!! In reality, it is called racism!!!
Of course, many will argue my accusations no longer apply because BLM has cleared-up their past radicalism---they have changed! On the contrary, authentic change only comes through repentance—which means acknowledging, and then confessing sin, to those they offended!! On the contrary, authentic change does not come simply through changing words on a website!!
Yet, my actual objective in using BLM as an example, was not necessarily to call-out BLM, but to expose liberalism’s tactic of re-defining words! Tragically, liberals re-define words, in mid-paragraph, and sometimes even in mid-sentence! Be forewarned--the objective of their deception is to replace the Judaeo/Christian ethic in America as the standard of right and wrong, with the standard of feelings. Solomon wrote of this tragedy over 2500 years ago: “Every way of a man is right in his own eyes…” (Pro21:2). Yet, because of the sin nature, feelings are not designed to determine good and evil—only God’s word can to that!
I leave you with Paul’s warning that applies perfectly to liberalism: “Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them” (Eph5:11)!
