“Who Are the Racists: Liberals or Conservatives?”

Press Release from National Center for Public Policy Research:

Project 21’s Derryck Green’s First Lecture as New Faculty Member of Prager University Addresses Myth of Conservative Racism

Black Scholar Deconstructs Liberal Myths About Affirmative Action, Voter ID

Washington, DC – Derryck Green, a member of the Project 21 black leadership network, is the newest member of the faculty of Prager University, an “online resource promoting knowledge and clarity” that partners with high schools and universities nationwide. Green’s first posted lecture is “Who Are the Racists: Liberals or Conservatives?”

“We are very proud that Project 21’s Derryck Green is now included among some of the best political thinkers of our time at Prager University,” said National Center for Public Policy Research Executive Director David Almasi. “Derryck possesses a keen insight on public policy, and his work with Project 21 over the years helps prove the depth and diversity of political thinking within the black community.”

“In my Prager University lecture, I argue against the slander of racism that the left directs at conservatives. It’s a reflexive mantra to retain power,” said Project 21’s Green. “Despite the fact that conservatives come in all colors and have ample compassion for blacks and others, the racism charge still hurts. I would further suggest that liberals and leftists are actually more racist. They are preoccupied by race, and they constantly inject it where it shouldn’t be.”

In his first Prager University video lecture, which was viewed on YouTube almost 70,000 times in the first 48 hours after it was posted, Green said:

To say that racism is foolish and stupid — not to mention evil — is to understate the case. But, according to many of their critics, conservatives are that stupid and that evil. But, with few exceptions, conservatives are neither. So why is the charge even made? The answer is primarily political: to maintain black support for liberals and liberal policies.

Using racial preferences as an example, Green added:

Conservatives believe that blacks and other minorities are every bit as capable as whites of succeeding as policemen, firemen, businessmen, lawyers, doctors, politicians and college students. Yet, for this belief, conservatives are called racist. The irony, of course, is that those who accuse conservatives of being racist believe that blacks and other minorities are not as capable as whites of succeeding and therefore still need affirmative action almost half a century after it was first implemented.

Green also debunked liberal allegations about conservative-led attempts to protect American voters through commonsense polling place protections such as voter ID and school choice.

Prager University, founded by author and talk radio host Dennis Prager, is a web-based learning resource founded to “promot[e] knowledge and clarity” on difficult and sometimes controversial topics related to fields such as political science, economics and history. Besides Green, other members of the Prager University faculty are columnist and Fox News Channel commentator George Will, American Enterprise Institute president Arthur Brooks, economist and author Walter Williams and investor George Gilder. In addition to working with high schools and universities across America, Prager University also works with families who homeschool their children.

Green’s relationship with Prager University began last August after he was a guest on Prager’s talk radio program to discuss his New Visions Commentary for Project 21 on the issue of “race fatigue.” In the wake of the George Zimmerman trial in Florida, Green wrote about his frustration with the “racial grievance industry”: “All this talk about race seems intentionally shortsighted and disingenuous. It simply implicates whites and infantilizes the black man.”

Commenting on his addition to the Prager University faculty, Green said: “I would like to thank Dennis Prager and Prager University for giving me an opportunity to not only bring attention to Project 21, but to do so in a way that defends conservatives and conservatism.”

Every month, among his other work with Project 21 on a wide variety of topics, Green writes an analysis of the Obama economy and its effect on the American public. This analysis is posted the first Friday of each month in conjunction with the release of unemployment data from the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics. They can be found on “Amy Ridenour’s National Center Blog” at www.conservativeblog.org.

In 2014, Project 21 members have been interviewed or cited by the media on current events over 1,500 times, including by the Fox News Special Report with Bret Baier, the O’Reilly Factor, Fox and Friends, CNN’s Situation Room, Salem Radio Network, Sean Hannity, Jim Bohannon, Conservative Commandos Radio, Bill Martinez, Radio America, American Urban Radio Network, Bill Cunningham, Roger Hedgecock, Mike Siegel, Dana Loesch, Thom Hartmann, Progressive Radio Network, The Blaze, EurWeb, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, SiriusXM satellite radio, TVOne, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Orlando Sentinel and 50,000-watt talk radio stations including WBZ-Boston, WJR-Detroit, KDKA-Pittsburgh and WLW-Cincinnati.

Project 21 has also participated in several cases before the U.S. Supreme Court over the years regarding race preferences and voting rights and also defended voter ID laws at the United Nations. Its volunteer members come from all walks of life and are not salaried political professionals.

Project 21, a leading voice of black conservatives for over two decades, is sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research, a conservative, free-market, non-profit think-tank established in 1982. Contributions to the National Center are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated.

Just Say No to Welfare Bears

BearDreamingofDonutsConfucius once said, “Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance.” And yet again George Bernard Shaw once said, “Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.” What’s even worse is being ignorant and having the confidence to show it. Mark Twain said that you only need two things in life to be a success; “ignorance and confidence.” That is why for many who will read anything that I write will claim I am the one who is ignorant and their truth is the truth that will lead them to successes beyond their wildest dreams….with confidence. Wildest, yes, but never anything that they dreamed of.

I don’t believe it takes a political expert, whatever the hell that is, to come to the conclusion that the majority of people who would sell their souls to Satan for animal welfare, are members of the same group that like to call themselves liberal and progressive. And thus would support and defend the welfare state; “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”

Let’s gander for a moment into animal welfare as it may pertain to black bears. In reality, it matters not the species of plant or animal. Environmentalists preach the “natural” and “balanced” way of doing things. These leftist, animal welfare, non thinkers harp to anyone who will listen that if man would just butt out of the equation of ecosystem (whatever that is) health and well-being, all would be Kumbaya.

Even after those who fabricated the theory of “natural balance” have since withdrew that claim, based of course on “best available science” (snickering here), the animal welfare activist and promoter of “let nature take its course and everything will be alright,” will cling confidently to their old-found supposition in order to show their own ignorance, confidently, but only to those intelligent enough to know the difference. For the majority, it has no meaning and that’s why it continues.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and their grand followers of confident ignoramuses, are proudly showing the world that they want the citizens of Maine, and other states, to stop treating bears inhumanely – hunters shoot them and eat them. GASP! The same flock of parrots preach ethics. I’m reminded of the words of Jesus (that would be the real, one and only, Son of God, the Creator of all things) when He said to the mass of confident, ignoramuses, eager to throw stones at and kill a woman because she was a prostitute, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”(John 8:7) My thoughts here are that Jesus didn’t think the stone-throwing sinners were exercising good ethics.

Obviously, and it is a shame I have to explain this, I have my doubts that anyone mixed up with HSUS, is much interested in “stoning” a bear hunter, but then again……

Somewhere lost in this progressive paradigm of animal protection to extremes, people have determined to make humans second class citizens. Animals come first. And yet, out of one corner of their mouths they confidently believe themselves to be compassionate humans toward other humans by offering somebody’s money (tax dollars), not their own, to go to support humans who say they can’t take care of themselves. Can’t take care of themselves? Later.

A reader sent me the following statement found on the Mainers For Fair Bear Hunting Facebook page. By the way there is nothing to do with Mainers in this group of Totalitarians as the entire group is funded by out-of-state interests and the HSUS.

The update pertains to a gathering of confident, ignorant, hypocrites to bring attention to the onset of Maine’s bear hunting season. In the update it says, “For 30 days, bears are trained to visit these sites for free food, seemingly with no strings attached.” There are confident outcries among the masses. I’m sure the gatherers will be chanting, “No more welfare for bears!”

Perhaps I should take that statement and just change three words. I’ll delete “30 days” and replace it with “years” and change “bears” to “people.” The statement would read, “For years, people are trained to visit these sites for free food, seemingly with no strings attached.”

On the one hand, God created man and gave him the brains and ability to take care of himself, i.e. work, grow and find food, shelter, etc. On the other hand, God created the beasts of field in order that man could have dominion over those beast, to care for and perpetuate growth for people to eat and use all the resources the animals can offer.

The confident cloud dwellers of the HSUS and other environmentalist movement groups demand that animals should be left alone, in their “natural” state (although their own ignorance don’t know what that means). Doing so will bring justice to the animal kingdom.

However, a man, a human, should have more ability to take care of himself than a damned bear and yet HSUS and others believe bears should be left to their own devices, without man’s interference (of course only when that interference involves hunting, fishing and trapping). Where is the outcry from those confident protestors toward those who spend years training others to “visit these sites for free food (health care, education, money and shelter), seemingly with no strings attached.”? What the hell is “natural” about that?

Isn’t there something seriously wrong with this?

Gun Control and Power: “You Can’t Fight Government”

“Progressives” Supporting Illegal Guns is a Joke

On Sunday, April 21st, “progressives” (euphemism for statist liberals) ran large display ads apparently in all major Montana newspapers claiming that 79% of Montanans want more federal gun control. This humorous number becomes even funnier when it is attributed IN THE AD to “Mayors for Illegal Guns” (Yes, “FOR.” Check your copy).

A curious person might ask, why would any mayors be FOR illegal guns in the first place? And, which specific Montana mayors are FOR illegal guns? Another curious person might ask why a group pushing more gun control would cite a “poll” from another group that is FOR illegal guns? Right. None of it makes any sense at all. However, it is stunningly consistent that those advocating gun control never make sense.

A poll run by the Helena Independent Record, shows that fully three-quarters of Montanans oppose more federal gun control. That is accurate Montana sentiment.

The display ads run throughout Montana provides the names of a bunch of people who claim to live in Montana and be gun owners. Researching these people suggests they are mostly a bunch of liberal operatives, or just dingbats, and are very unlikely to actually be gun owners. None of them have been seen at competitive shooting matches in Montana. It’s a safe bet that hardly any of them regularly purchase hunting licenses. They’re so clueless they selected a photo for the ad of a man carrying a tripod, thinking it’s a rifle.

The real howler is that anyone associated with this significant advertising expenditure (probably out-of-state “dark money”) expects any Montanans to believe the theme of the ad – the joke, that most Montanans want more federal gun control, again according to “Mayors for Illegal Guns.”

Good joke progressives. What’s next, “Mothers for Drunk Drivers?”
