2008: The Year of the White Liberal Elite As Told By Bob Parks

Bob Parks posted this article on his blog Black & Right this morning:

I have said all along that PEBO is a by-product of liberal elitism. It seems that Mr. Parks sees it that way as well:

Of course, this is the year of the Barack Obama phenomenon, but who is really responsible for his rise? His shining personally and “oratory” skills helped, but who was really behind that and other facets of our culture over the last few years? Try looking towards our white, liberal elite and you’ll not only see their political influence but also the mediocrity they’ve molded into our society.
It really dawned on me after watching an episode of Penn & Teller’s “Bullshit” program on Environmental Hysteria, where there was a scene including rhythm-challenged, young white elites, "dancing" like Africans after eating a meal of gazelle meat gone bad.
Look at pop culture, complete with singers who can’t sing, writers who can’t come up with original ideas, reality show participants with few redeeming qualities, and behind the scenes you’ll see white liberal elites who claim to embrace diversity, and you’ll understand why we have a Barack Obama.
White liberal elites are America’s losers with money.
While attending the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, I met many very talented people. But I also met a disproportionate amount of students who came from rich families, probably couldn’t cut it in a real college, thus they decided to try art school where they created crap that could be “intellectualized”, endure one year of classes at a real college, and get a degree. And they had the cash to do it.
These are some of the people who create our “art”. These are some of the people who are now teaching our kids and creating our music, movies, and influencing our politics.
These are the people who perpetuate the worst in black society, i.e. the black male gansta’. However, white liberal elites don’t really like black people. They wouldn’t let their daughters marry a rapper, but it’s trendy to bring home a black woman, as long as she’s light-skinned. Look at almost all of the today’s black female singers.
White liberal elitism is evidenced in their defense of Affirmative Action. A few years ago, they staunchly defended the AA-University of Michigan case. However, while few in the public knew anything about that case, aside from the fact it had the buzzwords “Affirmative Action”; elites did know what it was about.
A coalition representing 45 student organizations issued a statement at a press conference last Thursday related to the lawsuit filed against the University in October on its admissions practices:
"We support the promotion of diversity and equality through the continued implementation of affirmative action policies at the University of Michigan. We maintain that the lawsuit is without merit. We believe that education is a powerful tool to encourage accurate dialogue. Therefore, we are currently organizing to better educate ourselves and our communities for the defense of this issue in the court of public opinion."
For those who read one of the judge’s opinions,
The majority opinion, written by Chief Judge Boyce F. Martin Jr., an appointee of President Jimmy Carter, concluded that the law school has a compelling interest in considering race in admissions, because maintaining a racially and ethnically diverse enrollment was essential to "educational diversity" — exposing students to peers with different backgrounds and views.
In other words, the case (to white liberal elites) was not about making sure more blacks got into the University of Michigan law school. It was about more black students becoming study aids for white students, “exposing students to peers with different backgrounds”.
With that, is there any wonder why they’ve so embraced Barack Obama? As we’re not privy to his sealed college transcripts, we don’t know if he was this brilliant student or a mediocre AA applicant who was accepted into Harvard Law so his fellow students could be the educational beneficiary (direct cultural exposure) of his presence.
Staying on the topic of education (where white liberal elites gravitate), we see the further embrace of their personal mediocrity: the removal of competition in the classroom and the schoolyard. There shouldn’t be celebrated winners and shunned losers, as they know what category they’d be in.
Our pop culture is ruled (and infected) by “role models” whom we are told not to judge. In what age would a Paris Hilton be celebrated and/or tolerated? But because of nepotism and white liberal racism, some of the most untalented amongst us are in charge of what we, and our kids, see and hear. We already know of industry stars who won’t allow their children to watch the product they sell us. Why? Because they know it’s crap, but as it took little thought to produce and it perpetuates their lifestyle, who cares if our society’s reputation is sullied by it?
They’ve dumbed down society, not only so it’s easier for them to lead, but also because it’s easier for them to understand. They may be rich; that doesn’t make them intelligent. Reciting is easy, thus “change” and “hope” (along with white liberal guilt) could position a black man with questionable credentials to be our next President of the United States.
Now, they are wandering in the wilderness, wondering where the Obama they elected went. Because they aren’t that smart, they fell for the hustle, bamboozle, bait-and-switch, con, and because they come from the spoiled brat wing, will never admit the errors of their ways because they don’t know just how wrong they were.
That would take the ability to not only recite, but read.
The upside is now that they’ve finally assuaged their “guilt”, they have no where to go. They’ve atoned for the sins of America’s past, although they probably can’t name them correctly. They feel like they’ve accomplished something in their relatively empty lives. They’ll now tackle something truly bigger than themselves: the environment. They believe they can fix it. Now, if someone will just show them how.

The last time I linked to an article referencing white guilt I caught all manner of hell from many. But, whether we like it or not without white guilt and white liberal elitism there would be no PEBO (President Elect Barack Obama)

What can I say, the man nailed it.

Some people just can't handle truth.

Even Tim Wise states that it not about guilt - but responsibility.
White guilt IS the reason for PEBO.
Any Republican stategist who understood this would have made sure to avoid it in the past election cycle. PEBO used the current social environment to his advantage. He understood that to win , he had to work with what is - not what was.
Politics is dirty... always has been. But if we look at great politicians from history, we see a bit of slickness to them. Maybe PEBO is that guy.
Personally, I hate WG. It assumes a sense of superiorority.

UBJ, that's an interesting perspective- would you mind elaborating on it?

The best thing that people who are not inclined to agree with the Democratic Machine that is about to ram their agenda down our throats can do is to DOCUMENT THE FACTS and keep voicing them.

Capture economic statistics and the related analysis. Where as a 6.5% unemployment rate was a "Depression" under Bush - listen out regarding how a 8.5% average under Obama is "not that bad".

Most importantly seek to "bring it all home" with respect to the Black community. Translate the actions of the "celebrating Negroes" on the street due to the growth in Democratic rule over their community into questions of how their schools, their public safety and their local economic productivity is after this domination.

The most difficult task that I have as a non-Democrat Black man is to get Black folks to centrally focus on what is actually going on WITHIN THE BLACK COMMUNITY rather than attacking "National Republicans". They much rather talk about their enemies than what their friends are doing.

There is an irony that the Liberal elite have found their best spokesman in a bi-racial scion of a Left-wing family that wondered from KS to Washington state to Hawaii.

It is even more ironic that this "chosen spokesman" now seems more pragmatic and less radical, at least in his Cabinet picks so far - Rahm Emanuel (his Chief-of-Staff) is more Conservative than many Republicans, he's kept Robert Gates and appointed a very market-oriented economics team.

There will, no doubt, be many disappointments for Conservatives in the coming four years, but there've been many over the LAST four that we've ignored, like Bush Jr's cooperating as fully and eagerly with the Keynesian Pelosi-Reid Congress as Clinton did with the Supply Side Gingrich Congress.
