When are we going to get past this noxious notion that America is, or has been, uniquely evil in her history and that she needs to atone for her sins by grovelling to every group that isn't White, straight, and/or Christian? Yesterday the ditsy Dems in the House issued an official apology to Blacks for slavery and segregation, as if that was the most pressing issue facing our great country.
Forget sky high gas prices. Forget the refusal of Dems to let America drill for her own oil. Forget the war on terrorism. Forget mounting foreclosures. No, the one thing America must do is apologize for something that ended over 100 years ago. Without that mea culpa the country can't go on! Gimme a break!
Let me tell you atonement crazy, guilt ridden, libtard weirdos something. I wasn't a slave. My parents weren't slaves. My grandparents weren't slaves. My great-grandparents weren't slaves. My great-great-grandparents weren't slaves. To get to anyone in my family who MIGHT have been a slave you have to go back FIVE generations. I DON'T NEED YOUR F--KING APOLOGY!!!!
Representatives, Senators, get on with the nation's business, and that business is NOT apologizing for slavery. America was NOT the only country in the history of mankind to practice slavery, and Blacks are NOT the only people to ever be held as slaves. Slavery is a HUMAN sin, not a sin only of Whites, Christians, and/or Americans. If Blacks really cared about getting an apology for slavery, if it really meant something to them, why aren't they demanding one from the Arabs, who traded in African slaves for over a thousand years? Too bad no one in the House had the cajones to bring up that bit of inconvenient history.
This whole apologizing-for-slavery con is just that, a con, a way to stoke the fire of White guilt which is one of the engines driving the left's lust for big government. Making and keeping Whites feeling guilty works for the left because such Whites become so obsessed with assuaging their guilt that they forget about everything else. They'll support, excuse, ignore, justify, rationalize, and/or vote for ANYTHING in order to do penance for their (imagined) racial sins. What's right for the country takes a back seat to their desperate need to prove they're good Whites.
Well, I don't need any White person proving anything to me. If you treat me right you're kosher in my book. If you don't, you're an a**hole. Even if you're Black. Now go and do what's right for America...and put your racial manners textbook in the trash where it belongs.
