Editorial: Angry, Old, White Men
By Chris Coatney
I'm repeatedly hearing the GOP described as the party of "angry, old, white men." How can the GOP broaden its base when it's constantly depicted as the party of racism?
My view is that whites are better off financially in this country not because of what they've done wrong, but because of what they've done right. I'm familiar with the history of racism in this country but the racist barriers were knocked down long ago. Blacks have never had more opportunity than they do today, but we're hearing more about racism than ever before. What is the solution?
The attacks on whites remind me of the attacks on Jews in Nazi Germany. The Jews, who were successful, were blamed for Germany's problems, despite the fact that Jewish people had contributed much to Germany's success. The politics of envy, which Hitler employed so successfully, are being repeated by leftists in America today.
Instead of playing the "blame game," blacks should be looking at what whites have done right, and learning from those examples. There are principles which must be followed to achieve prosperity. These principles are found in the Bible, which says God will bless the nation which obeys His commandments.
When a sports team consistently has a losing record, you don't turn things around by blaming your opponents. You get a new playbook and you get a new coach. Blacks have had better than average success in sports. They've done less well in education and business, not because they're less intelligent, but because they've lacked motivation.
Black youth are alienated from society not because of skin color, but because of upbringing. 1/3 - 1/2 of black children are aborted in the womb. 70% of the survivors are growing up in single parent families. Abortion is murder, the sin of child sacrifice, which God punished severely in the Old Testament. God can't bless the hands that shed innocent blood! How do young people learn biblical principles, which have been rejected so thoroughly by their parents?
If you support legalized abortion, you might as well be the KKK. What good is your black skin doing those aborted black babies? You might as well be the Grand Wizard, from Obama on down! I agree that black lives matter: blacks and liberals are the ones who need to hear the message!
The Republican Party was founded on the principle of equality; abolitionists based their arguments on the fact that we're made in God's image. According to the Declaration of Independence, we're granted inalienable rights from our Creator, beginning with the right to life. Life is the most basic civil right; what good are voting rights to a dead baby? Abortion suppresses the black vote!
The white community is crumbling too. Blacks are the canary in the coal mine. They've been the laboratory for the liberal Koolaid, the failed social experiments which have destroyed their families and community. Social liberals tell us to ignore the social issues, but these issues form the moral foundation of our nation, which has been destroyed beyond belief. We need men and women of courage, including political candidates, to raise the alarm.
This country needs to repent of its sin and return to God, and we need candidates who aren't ashamed to say it! If my people, who are called by name, will humble themselves and repent of their sin, I will forgive their sin and heal their land; 2 Chronicles 7:14.
I'm mostly white, about 1/16 Native American. I've spent 12 years of my life reaching out full time at the death camps aka "abortion mills" in and around Detroit, in addition to working full time at night. I've seen hundreds of babies saved, mostly black. If you want to reach the black community, this would be a good place to start: show them you care! What's more important than a baby's life?
It would help if some of the "old, white," Fox News commentators would invite black, prolife, Christians onto their shows more often to present their case to America. You know who some of them are; I'll add another, which you may or may not have heard of.
