In meteorology, a barometer measures atmospheric pressure. In my opinion, contemporary voting measures American atmospheric pressure in a minimum of three ways:
Let’s begin with racism. I have lived through several presidential elections, but the present race for the next president has been the most contentious in my life! One reason is that the atmosphere of America has been intentionally charged with racism. When I mention the word ‘racism’ as it relates to America, the politically correct—which means liberals/progressives-- immediately agree with me. How can I, one of the most vociferous critics of liberals agree with them? I don’t! You see…that is their deception!
For liberals (progressives)—the word ‘racism’ means “White racism”. What I find most incredible...amazing…stunning…outrageous…and most of all Godless(Col2:8), is that politically correct thinking, i.e.liberalism, has successfully made Whiteness tantamount to racism! The liberal ability to redefine the absolute using code language, and undertone--is the crux of their deception. In other words, for liberalism an absolute is not all-encompassing! Pastor Jackson, you ask, “How can the statement: Whiteness equals racism be an absolute, if it is not all-encompassing? Don’t you know that absolutes must be all-encompassing to be absolute! Absolutes must apply to all, or they are not absolute.” I say, “Well done!! You have just identified the liberal deception! Liberalism has bullied the privilege to re-define word ‘meanings’ in mid-statement! Selah!!!
Allow me to explain.
The liberal ‘absolute, non-absolute’ statement: ‘Whiteness equals racism’; applies to whom? (If you’re confused by the question, it means you’re rational! If you’re not, it means you’re a liberal!) Very simply, the liberal hit-list of racists includes: White people!
The evidence for this truth is irrefutable: ‘White Privilege’! The term “White Privilege” means Whites are privileged because they are White; therefore ALL Whites are racist; hence, ‘Whiteness equals racism’!
Their problem is that liberalism also comprises White people! How is this contradiction resolved? In order to remain consistent with their ‘absolute, non-absolute’ philosophy that ‘Whiteness equals racism’, liberals had to create an ‘out’…a ‘trump card’…a ‘get-out-of-jail-free’ pass! What is that? Under the category of ‘Whiteness’, they simply include: Republicans, conservative Whites, conservative Blacks, conservative Hispanics…AND Bible-believing Christians, who are also known as conservative Christians*! If you are in one of these categories, if you didn’t know it…you are a racist!
Now, having a better understanding of this backdrop, let’s move on to how voting measures the atmosphere of racism in America. Allow me to propose two examples. First, President Barack Obama received 95% of the black vote. Black actor Samuel Jackson publically admitted voting for Obama because he was Black. Yet, this sort of behavior is not something hidden by Black America! It is culturally acceptable for Blacks to vote for Blacks because of race. This unwritten rule applies to Hispanics, and most minorities. Of course, my detractors will argue this is not racist. They might add something like, “Whites have voted for Whites because of Whiteness! Why can’t we?!” But, when Whites have supported candidates using race, we have correctly labeled them racist! Why the double standard? Normally two answers are offered for this double standard on racial matters. First, because blacks have endured past institutional racism, to expect a balanced scale—is itself racist. Hence, things like affirmative action and welfare which obviously use race to tilt the playing field, are implemented without considering its innate racism, nor its consequences!
The second answer is much less complicated. Liberalism simply declares: “Only Whites can be racist”!
My second example where voting is found to measure racism is Donald Trump**. Presently, Mr Trump leads the GOP field for President. A few days ago in Chicago, violent demonstrations erupted cancelling his rally. The reason for the protests was not Trump’s stand on building a wall on the Mexican border; nor deporting illegals; nor halting Muslim Syrian refugee immigration, positions he has held for months now. Trump has had rallies in several states over the last few weeks while holding the three previous controversial views, but why such violence only in Chicago? Actually…one reason! Recently, Chicago has been a hotbed of racial tension, especially after the cover-up video footage was released of Laquan McDonald’s shooting. For some time, Chicago has been protesting Mayor Rahm Emanuel over this issue, seeking his resignation. But remember, Emanuel is a White liberal, so he can’t be included on the liberal ‘racist’ hit-list, which is the reason he still holds office. However, what pushed the temperature of the Chicago protests into a frenzy, is the liberal media’s declaration of Trump racism***. In a CNN interview, Trump said he did not know former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke, and needed to do research on him. A crack in the door is all liberals needed…especially Black liberals!!
From that moment forward, in spite of any contrary evidence, Trump is now branded a racist! In reality though, the ‘racist’ brand is not directed at Trump! Trump was actually right when he declared that the Chicago anger was NOT directed at him! Liberalism simply used Trump’s David Duke answer as proof of what they already wanted to perpetrate! In reality, any Republican front runner is racist because, according to the liberal mindset, all Republicans are racists!
Until the November elections conclude, American voting is now back on the liberal track, divided according race! If you vote Republican, you’re a racist! If you vote Democrat, you’re not!
Yet, this is ‘THE’ liberal tactic to win political power.
* “Liberal” Christians (whatever that is) are not on the liberal racist hit-list because they are liberals, not because they are Christians. Liberal Christianity declares: God is love! God is nice! God is good! God does not judge! He never mentions sin! God simply accepts everyone just like they are!
**I am not a fan of Mr Trump, and did not vote for him in the primaries.
*** Remember, to the liberal mind, racism equals ‘White racism’.
