The Epitome Of The Term Black Turncoat
The swastika is widely known as the symbol of Nazi Germany and a symbol of anti-Semitism, recognized as a symbol of Jewish oppression. This is true despite the fact that the swastika has a history that far exceeds its reputation as Adolph Hitler’s favorite icon. Early aviators wore the swastika as a good luck charm. It has a history that goes back to the Baltic, Celtic, Finnish, and Germanic eras. But none of that matters because the symbol has an affiliation with Nazis. It doesn’t matter whose history it represents. It has been accepted as a symbol of hate and is forever branded as such.
The Confederate flag knows no handicap. Despite the fact that the Confederate is widely recognized as a symbol of racial hatred, second probably only to the noose that has been used as a quick and easy way to provoke and terrorize people of African descent. The flag has been proudly used by the white community to reinforce sentiments of racial segregation. This flag has been used as a symbol of subjugation by white people who want to wear their hatred for black people proudly on their patriotic sleeves. The Confederate flag has never been recognized as anything good for the black community. So I have to admit to a great deal of disappointment to see any black person who would not only tolerate this symbol of hate for black people, but will proudly display and accept this flag as part of his or her personal heritage. These people would never devote the same reverence for anything with a more obvious African affiliation.
Stephen Frazier is proud to refer to himself as a self confessed black turncoat, a term used to describe a person who switches allegiance and is synonymous with traitor. He is truly conservative to his Negroid core. And Mr. Frazier pulls no punches in his condemnation of the black community. Indeed, Mr. Frasier supports the theory that black people are less intelligent than white people simply because the number of black controlled corporations is so few in comparison to white controlled corporations. Mr. Frasier asked if black people were so intelligent why don’t a million black people pony up five hundred dollars and start their own corporation. I would say the same thing that keeps a million white people putting in five hundred dollars and starting up a new corporation. The logic is an example of a simpleton type thought process.
This is a black man who truly loves his Rush Limbaugh and challenges anyone to prove that Mr. Limbaugh has said anything the least bit negative about any racial group, but he willfully overlooks Mr. Limbaugh’s comments referring to black people as magic Negroes, his racially charged statements about the school bus fight between a couple of black students who attacked a single white student, or Mr. Limbaugh’s accusations against former Secretary of State Colin Powell claiming the only reason the conservative Mr. Powell endorsed the liberal black candidate was because of the color of his skin. The implication is that black people only support other black people because of the common color of our skin. Perish the thought that white people only vote for other white people because of the common color of their skin. If all it took was black skin to win black people’s vote I’m sure people like Michael Steele and Alan Keyes would have a totally different political career path.
But Mr. Frasier would never acknowledge such racist negativity and would simply close his eyes tight and stick his fingers in his ears and dismiss this racism as nothing more than Mr. Limbaugh telling it like it is.
Mr. Frasier appeared on theblacksentinel’s website trying to justify the conservative angst against President Barack Obama as other than, or more than, just race baiting. While I will admit that there are legitimate arguments to be made by conservatives on their differences with Mr. Obama’s policies, Mr. Frasier could not address any. In a complete opposite of Mr. Limbaugh can do no wrong, Mr. Obama can do no right. Mr. Obama is wrong for the country because he appointed thirty seven “czars” in his administration. And while that might sound like some communistic plot, the term “czar” refers to an executive branch official appointed by the President. For example, it is far simpler to use the term bird flu czar than use the official title, Advisor to the President for Public Health Emergency Preparedness.
Mr. Frasier goes on to say that Mr. Obama hired an “environmental whacko” and a “tree hugger”. Imagine the nerve of the President hiring somebody that is cuckoo about the environment to run the Environmental Protection Agency. What he should have done was imitated his predecessor and gave the keys to that agency to somebody who could not care less if we have clean air or clean water or works to keep our national parks pristine. That certainly does not sound like adequate justification for Mr. Obama’s picture to be adulterated with a little Adolph Hitler mustache nor for people to call into question his patriotism and make snide remarks about his ethnicity and racial heritage.
And Mr. Frasier’s complaint that Mr. Obama is enacting all kinds of legislation is pure right winged propaganda because of the simple fact that the President, the head of the executive branch of government, doesn’t enact law. Constitutionally speaking any law that the executive branch follows is enacted by the legislative branch, the United States Congress. The President can do his best to influence law, but his influence is limited. To blame Mr. Obama for our laws, especially after he’s only been in office for just a tad over eight months is pretty unfair. But what can you expect of anyone who gets the vast majority of their news from FOX and Rush.
Actually, that’s not quite true. Saying people listen to a particular media source and that is the way they think and feel is not totally accurate. While a dishonest news source can be an influencing factor, people have to have an attraction to such tripe in order to listen. For example, I can’t take more than five minutes of Rush Limbaugh’s radio show without wanting to hurl the radio out a window. Listening to FOX News would be some kind of reality deprivation torture akin to waterboarding.
As a black man, Mr. Frazier is a disappointing combination of conservatism and tolerance for racial discrimination that truly makes him the epitome of a black turncoat. I’m sure many people are happy to see this proud son of the Confederacy fly his Confederate flag and spew his hate for black people and the black community. If his admiration for people like Rush Limbaugh is any indication, people who promote racist views against the black community are his heroes. It helps explains why he embraces the Confederate flag. Those people who were sacrificing their lives in order to allow individual states to keep the right to enslave black people can’t be all bad. It’s not like they had the gall to hire an environmentalist whack job to run the government agency entrusted to protect the environment.
