Race Wars Are Coming

Thomas Sowell recently wrote: In 1961, James B. Conant's book "Slums and Suburbs" warned that "social dynamite" was accumulating in American cities. Just a few years later, ghetto riots erupted all across the country.

Social dynamite can accumulate among whites as well as among blacks. White extremist hate groups already exist, though they are a fringe, as the Nazis were once a disdained fringe in Germany. It was the people's loss of confidence in the respectable institutions of society that gave the Nazis their chance for power.

The blind and dishonest political correctness of our media and educational institutions on racial issues today can eventually forfeit the confidence of Americans and give similar extremist groups their chance to ignite a race war in the United States. And once a race war starts, it can be virtually impossible to stop.


Each week I see a report of Black on White violence. Black teens killing an 84 year old man in a wheelchair just because he was breathing, tells me race wars are coming. Another Trayvon may set it off.

Roll Tide

What especially amazed Tocqueville was the sheer range of nongovernmental organizations Americans formed: "Not only do they have commercial and industrial associations . . . but they also have a thousand other kinds: religious, moral, grave, futile, very general and very particular, immense and very small; Americans use associations to give fetes, to found seminaries, to build inns, to raise churches, to distribute books, to send missionaries to the antipodes; in this manner they create hospitals, prisons, schools."

That was then. Being part of an association now is passé. Church and lodge membership have been declining for decades. The new associations are sport fans - NASCAR, golf, and of course college football fans. Every Saturday in the fall, these fans come out like locust. Flags flying from car windows, they clog the roads. Most are not going to the game, but to the mall, but true fans always show their colors. 

Tide topper

Football propels a billion-dollar revenue machine that turns out a few stars, throws away 97% of the players when it's done with them and converts institutions of learning into centers of entertainment.

I am watching as the Dems turn this country into a failed fascists state. Conservatives have no clue how to fight back. They just tune in the next football game. 

In 1775, with very little provocation, almost a third of the residents grabbed their muskets and claimed this land from George III. Now the Republican party has been ruined. It's history. Hilliary will be easily elected as the Republicans have no one worth damm. 

Since I don't like football, maybe I can learn to tune out and like porn.

The Power Of Art

Since Bill Buckely died, conservatives have not had a very effective voice. That needs to change if we are to gain any ground. According to Paul Harvey, there is power of art over argument. He puts it this way…

“Nobody could have persuaded a generation to produce a baby boom—yet Shirley Temple movies made every couple want to have one. Military enlistments were lagging for our Air Force until, almost overnight, a movie called Top Gun had recruits standing in line. The power of art over argument. The elevation of the downtrodden never relies on logic. It is instead facilitated by the persistent persuasion of gifted penman. British sweatshops for children existed only until Dickens wrote about them. American slaves were slaves only until Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote about them. Oh, yes, Lincoln himself credited her with having started the Civil War. The power of art over argument. Animal rights activists bemoan the difficulty of making most people relate to animals. Yet, once upon a time, a cartoonist named Walt Disney created an animal character called Bambi, and in one year, deer hunting nose-dived from a $5.7 million business to a $1 million business. The power of art over argument. Statues mandating more humane treatment for draft horses were initiated by a book: Black Beauty. You want to convince the unconvinced? Don’t call to arms—call to art!
