AMAC Exclusive – by Seamus Brennan

racism

According to a recently released report from the newly created “Task Force on Racism” at the National Archives, the Archives Rotunda, which is home to our Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights, is now an example of “structural racism.” Just as the left has called for a “reimagining” of everything from policing to federal highway policy, they are now calling on the federal government to “reimagine” the Rotunda, including by eliminating “harmful” terms like calling our founding documents the “Charters of Freedom.”

This example is only the latest in what has become a clear pattern: that which the left wishes to destroy, its minions first call “systemically racist.” This includes the institutions, traditions, and values of American life that the left wishes to radically transform, including the police and criminal justice system, the Constitution, the nuclear family, national borders, the financial system, home ownership, single-family zoning, private healthcare, election integrity laws, restrictions on drug use, religion, and– as the recent scandal over the Rotunda of the National Archives attests–American identity itself.

The sweeping and generalized charge of “systemic racism”–a charge with no definition and no proof–has come to serve as the left’s most potent weapon in its quest to acquire political, corporate, and social power. Tragically, many well-intentioned Americans are falling for it, often conflating “systemic racism” with individually racist actions or words. No mainstream figure has claimed that there are not instances of racism; undoubtedly there are, and they are nearly always immediately condemned by voices on both sides of the political aisle.

Charges of individual racism are very different from the suggestion that the American system itself is somehow racist. Yet, this is the claim the left is making ad-nauseum—and President Joe Biden has embraced the “systemic racism” tactic of the left perhaps more than any Democrat political leader before him.

“Systemic racism pervades every part of our society, including law enforcement — and we have to do the hard work to root it out,” candidate Biden tweeted in June 2020. A few days later Biden again took to Twitter: “There is systemic racism not just in our law enforcement but also in housing, education, and everything we do.” Around the same time, a CBS reporter asked Biden whether he believed there existed systemic racism in law enforcement. Biden’s response: “Absolutely. But it’s not just in law enforcement, it’s across the board.” A few weeks later in his speech accepting the nomination of the Democrat Party for president, Biden stated that America was finally ready “to do the hard work of rooting out our systemic racism.”

During the 2020 campaign, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders created the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force that published a 110-page policy manifesto. This leftist policy document uses the charge of “systemic racism” to justify overhauling the American policing and justice systems, a federal takeover of K-12 education, the elimination of border security, and Green New Deal-esque environmental measures, and a general transformation of the economy through socialist policies. The report identified “systemic racism” in virtually every part of American life.

In Biden’s inaugural address, he said the nation faced a “time of testing” and that it had to confront “the sting of systemic racism.” A few weeks later, President Biden then mentioned “systemic racism” twice in his first address to a Joint Session of Congress, claiming that “we have a real chance to root out systemic racism that plagues America and American lives.”

Vice President Kamala Harris has professed the same view of the country. “Systemic racism touches all levels of our society,” tweeted candidate Harris on June 15, 2020. In her nomination acceptance speech, Harris argued that “Black, Latino and Indigenous people are suffering and dying disproportionately. This is not a coincidence. It is the effect of structural racism.” Later in the campaign, Harris vowed “to root out the systemic racism that still permeates in our courtrooms, our prisons, and in policing.”

Since then, both Biden and Harris have gone on to repeatedly name “systemic racism” or “structural racism” as the abstract bogeyman responsible for every problem in American society.

It is hard to think of anything else in the modern era that has been cited as the direct source for nearly every problem in American life, let alone with precisely the same language.

The solution of the Democrat Party is, of course, always more direct control of the federal government (and thus Democratic Party) over the lives of ordinary Americans.

In his own nomination acceptance speech a little over a year ago, President Donald Trump directly took on the Democrat Party’s oft-stated hatred of America and incessant charges of systemic racism:

At the Democrat National Convention, Joe Biden and his party repeatedly assailed America as a land of racial, economic, and social injustice. So, tonight, I ask you a simple question: How can the Democrat Party ask to lead our country when it spends so much time tearing down our country? In the left’s backward view, they do not see America as the most free, just, and exceptional nation on Earth. Instead, they see a wicked nation that must be punished for its sins. Our opponents say that redemption for you can only come from giving power to them.  This is a tired anthem spoken by every repressive movement throughout history.

In a July essay in American Greatness, Peter Wood compared today’s persistent accusations of “systemic racism” to the Salem witch trials, characterizing systemic racism as a “theory of witchcraft.” Wood is clear that systemic racism has existed in the past—in the antebellum South, for instance. He is also clear that there are still instances of racism, which can and should be pointed out and condemned. But, Wood contends, “’systemic racism,’ involving the complicity of law, the approval of society, the power of economics, and the reinforcement of culture is just gone. It was officially undone generations ago and we have since vigorously cleaned out its vestiges.”

As Wood points out, the widespread belief on the left in “systemic racism,” as the left defines it, without any concrete evidence of its actual existence in American society today has resulted in a “Salem-esque panic based on the pseudo-authoritative declaration that it exists.” Proponents of “systemic racism,” Wood writes, are forced to search for “spectral evidence,” which requires “special magical eyes” to detect an all-encompassing racism that they can’t prove empirically.

Wood observes that “witchcraft crazes never end well—not for the accused, seldom for the accusers, and certainly not for the society that has permitted this temporary descent into madness.”

One of the greatest writers of the 20th Century would have been well-acquainted with what we are now seeing in our politics and its constantly shifting and ambiguously defined terms like “systemic racism.” In his book 1984, George Orwell describes the phenomenon by which aspiring totalitarians try to gain control over language in order to limit the ability of the population to think and act on its own terms: “Every concept that can ever be needed will be expressed by exactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten.” 1984 was published in 1949, but its prescient warning about the desire of radical socialists to police so-called “thoughtcrime” and thereby silence dissenters remains relevant today. This is especially so within the context of the extreme left’s grip on American culture, a grip that persists largely due to a single concept that seeks to cancel its opponents: “systemic racism.”

For the good of American strength and unity, and for the ultimate goal of living up to our national motto, E pluribus unum, Americans must hope that more and more of their fellow citizens will wake up from the madness, recognize the severe damage of racializing every component of American life, and expose wild charges of “systemic racism” for the lies that they are.

If we don’t, as Wood warns, we will all end up on trial—every one of us.

I just wonder when WE the People are going to stand up, say “enough is enough”, and stop this insane behavior.
Where are our leaders.
Who is organizing the citizenry to stop this.
Why is there no ‘rioting’ to SAVE America, as antifa and BLM rioted to damage America?
When will we stop the plundering of America.

This is a sad story of so-called ” systemic racism ” across our beautiful nation, it is a false narrative in it’s entirety…The very situation we as Americans find ourselves in goes back to the election of our nation’s first ever elected black president, Barack Hussein Obama…Is it possible that so many of us systemic racists, i.e. that’s you & me folks in America even had the capacity to elect our first ever black president in the first place?
The FACTS of Obama’s election say otherwise in a crystal clear manner that America in fact had already moved beyond this false narrative of systemic racism years before 2008 ever arrived…
We need to examine & understand what has been creeping back into America since the election of Obama some 13 years ago now…The election of Obama brought us Eric Holder as attorney general.
From that point forward the plate was set for what the now corrupted left wing party calling themselves Democrats had in store for America & has stayed with us to this very day…
Where do we begin? Lets begin with the troubled youth,16 year old Travon Martin. To quote Obama, ” If I had a son, I’d want him to be just like Travon. ” Lets move forward to Ferguson, MO & this is where Holder really went to work calling the beaten to a pulp police officer’s face a racist as well as the remaining white officers on the Ferguson Police Dept. in a city with a 80% black population…
Between Holders, Obama’s & MSM spinning a complete lie on what actually occurred that day in Ferguson & continued that same lie for well over a year along with MSM painting a complete false picture on what actually happened, causing the police officer to unload his weapon into Michael Johnson as he once again charged him in a rage for a 2nd time, after bludgeoning the officer’s face to the point of not recognizing him from the 1st attack whilst he sat in his cruiser. Thus began the birth of Black Lives Matter, i.e. BLM that began with their first lie & MSM in FULL support of it & I quote. ” Stop Don’t Shoot, My Hands are Up. ” A total & complete fabrication & Eric Holder ran with it as did the press for well after a year & long after the officer was cleared of any charges in a court of law consisting of both black & white jurors… Mattered not, Holder still continued the FALSE NARRATIVE on what really happened in Ferguson, MO… Eventually Holder is REMOVED & held in contempt of Congress in the Fast & Furious debacle…
There is so much more to this false narrative the left is calling ” systemic racism ” in America, but I believe the ( 2 ) examples set out here should give a pretty good idea on how this dangerous rhetoric gets other things started, i.e. Defund the Police, crooked district attorneys releasing the felons, ANTIFA, CRT, disaffected youth buying into this crap & on & on it goes, sadly enough…
America is not prepared nor willing to transform into the fallacy of systemic racism the current occupiers in the WH are pushing for, really hard… I saw no less than ( 3 ) college football stadiums filled to capacity in the last couple days as they all stood & loudly proclaimed ” F**k Joe Biden, over & over again. This tells me that our college aged youth perhaps deserve far more credit than we are giving them, I saw a message of HOPE in their expletive laden message to their faux commander in chief…

I resent most the perversion of language to advance a false narrative and then bringing it into our schools and to our kids.
So the slaughter on the streets of our major urban centers derives from “structural racism”?
No. It derives from an amoral punk aiming a bullet at an innocent target.

Good article in defining the ideology and tactics of Marxists, but, we need to keep in mind that there is no political solution to a spiritual problem. Problem is that most Americans are ignorant, too self-absorbed thus do not have the will nor the know-how to fight back. America is in decline because its people have rejected the 5 divine institutions and/or are willing to sit back and allow a takeover by the communist leftists which is happening at warp speed.
God’s system for domestic peace, prosperity and national freedom:
*Personal responsibility.
*Free will.
*Marriage.
*Family.
*Nationalism.

Systemic racism is rot. The focus on this has created a huge divide where none existed. When a person can be thrown out of class for not using the “preferred pronoun” we are in really bad shape. The LGBTQ community represents a tiny sliver of our population and yet now they control thinking on the the grand stage. I used to accept them for what they are. Never a problem. Now they make the lives of the general public a misery. My feelings for them have changed greatly. That saddens me.

I don’t mind working as long as I can stay healthy. Thanks LBJ for helping me to change My Political Party! Jackass Joe IS the Worst President in American History and he’s achieved that in ONLY 8 months! … HE MUST BE STOPPED!!!

I wonder if “systemic racism” covers the Black on Asian attacks in the big cities? How can we be systemically racist when we’re one of only a handful of countries in the world that has no slavery? What about the Civil War that was fought to end slavery and the huge societal revolt of the 60s that ended segregation? What about Brown vs the Board of Education? I could go on and on, but what good would it do. The education system has dumbed down America to the extent that all the Dems have to do is keep repeating the lies, and the brain dead start nodding in unison. We need to take back the education system and start teaching people some history and how to think comparatively. Maybe then they’ll point and laugh when these goons get up in front of people and spout their nonsense.

Unfortunately, there IS systemic racism in this country — and it goes by the name of the Democrap Party. It is the Democraps who support the racist philosophy of Critical Race Theory, that you can identify racists by the color of their skin. And, Democraps have for decades subjected blacks to cities in which black-on-black violence is tolerated, and where schools are failing ALL students, but — because teachers’ unions and their Democrap Party employees will not allow school choice — substantially ALL black children are forced to attend the failing institutions. It is Democraps who want to make abortion unfettered, primarily in order to limit the number of new black people in their lily-white communities.

This sounds like Barack Hussein Obama and his “Change We Can Believe In”, along with his close friends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. The only racism in America is what’s been created during the Obama administration and flowered from there. Another pathetic attempt by the radical left to divide the country and give us a reason to worry so we can forget about the fact that America is being taken apart by very dangerous and powerful people. President Biden has no concept of the words he speaks and no concept he is destroying our country.

” Systematic Racism” is bogus! Why is there a charge of “systematic racism”? It is because the minorities see the problem in the big cities where there are large population of minorities . They are harrassed because of the color of their skin. So all white people must be racist. Right? This makes it very easy to make the charge of “systematic racism”. But many of us know that is not true at all.

So, why is the same police harrassment going on in small towns across America? There are not near as may minorities in these small towns. So if we look at who is being targeted in these small towns it is people who do not have a lot of money and the means to fight the “law”. So this is not about race at all. It is about filling the coffers of the local governments. Since COVID, the tax revenues are down which reduces the county income . The authotities need to make up for it. So they violate the citizens constitutional rights in order to arrest more people and get them in the system to contribute parole money to the local coffers. Police are making up charges to pull someone over, then hold them long enough to get the canine units on the scene to search the vehicles. They illegally searched one vehicle with a drug dog, running him by the vehicle 7 times before he “got a hit” on it. There were no drugs in the vehicle. But they still searched everything completely even down to the point of making the driver remove his shoes to see if they could find drugs there.

There is a video online of this kind of forced hit happening to a guy from Ohio in Illinois near St. Louis. In that video, the police officer got the dog to indicate drugs with his encouragement and the enticement of a reward. There were no drugs in the vehicle. The police officer pulled the vehicle over because he said the driver was swerving into the second lane and back. Both people in the vehicle did not remember this occurring. He also said the passemger was”nervous”. In the video when you hear the officer conversing with passenger, there was no hint of “nervousness” in his voice. Get online and watch it. It will open your eyes.

In our small town, they had their drug sniffing dogs checking all of the cars at a convenience store.That is highly illegal. The do not care about peoples rights any more. They told my cousin that he did not have any rights! This is what we are dealing with and why the minorities in the cities see it as racism. But it really has nothing to do with race. It is all about getting rid of the constitution snd the rights of the staes and the people, who are the ones for whom it was written.

How many legs would a lamb have if you considered the tail a leg? Four! Considering the tail a leg does not make it one. I was born a Caucasian male and am a racist as a direct result. I am trapped forever as a racist and no amount of effort on my part can rid me of the stain. So, I guess I might as well try to enjoy it. I will start referring to African Americans with the pejorative that starts with an “N” and Asian Americans with… I do not know the pejorative for Asians. (Must be a birth defect, I was born without a full vocabulary of racial pejoratives). Wonder if that makes me a disabled racist and eligible disability benefits? Well, from now on, I am not white, I am a European American. So, I, therefore, must address my fellow European Americans by the appropriate pejorative. The only one I know is “honkie.” Oh well, I guess I will just have to accept the fact that I am a poor excuse for a racist. [The foregoing was keyed with my tongue in my cheek.]
