Racism and the attack on Constitutional America

Since my last post the Andrew Breitbart / Shirley Shirrod incident has come and gone, or maybe gone, maybe not. I haven't discussed it here, been discussing it elsewhere. May get to some of it eventually, but right now I want to mention a "panel" discussion on CNN that Breitbart linked to, that occurred in the midst of the Sherrod story. He linked specifically to the remarks by two black talk show hosts, leftists but interesting: Warren Ballantine: CNN Panelist to Tea Party: ‘We Don’t Think You’re Racist...’

Ballantine said about the accusation of racism in the tea party: No, we don't think YOU are racist, we think your IDEOLOGY is racism, and I thought that said it all. He said that when we talk "states' rights," they hear "Jim Crow."

I thought that was honest and illuminating. That's how so many conservative political positions get slammed as racist, political positions that are the essence of Constitutional America that SHOULD benefit all citizens of all races. Instead, this kind of paranoia is how they get brought down.

(I certainly object to his ridiculous claim that Jeremiah Wright was quoted "out of context," however, just as Shirley Sherrod was.)

And Bev Smith: CNN Panelist: We Need White Folk to be Talking About Race

Bev Smith was calling for a dialogue on race. If it could be honest along such lines maybe it would be worth something. Maybe the paranoia could be acknowledged as an understandable reflection of the history of racism. Maybe measures could be discussed to remove any lingering threat along those lines, while the principles of a free society are shown to be the greatest good for all.

Now they are calling the Tea Parties "racist." They have no conscience, no honor. Even if we make gains in the November election it has to be recognized that this nation is now being overrun by a criminal mentality that seeks to destroy it completely and elections can't answer to that for long. Thuggery has been shown in the act of defrauding people of their right to vote already. Daily deceit is what we get for news. We've long since stopped being the moral people the founders said we must be for our system of government to work.

It is time for American Christians to put away everything that isn't absolutely essential -- and MOST of what we are engaged in isn't -- and devote daily hours on end to begging God to heal this nation.

Pray for each other to be able to pray more, pray for the churches, pray for the pastors, pastors pray for your congregations hours on end (revival has come by this means), pray for revival, pray for the restraint of evil, pray for personal correction and repentance, pray pray pray until God comes down.

There is no other hope.
