True Racism: Political Parties and Ideologies
While trying to understand the extreme political messages in the movie "White House Down" it occurred to me that the answer in fact might be quite simple. The answer might be that political parties and ideologues are racists; and then with their extreme prejudices they may see little truth if any. Racists? Well, we say racism is bad for two reasons. Saying one group or race is all good or bad both fosters hate and also is quite dumb. And doing that same stupidity with other groups, labeling them all good or all bad, is equally hateful and also stupid. In each group of the world, there are mostly good people along with some not so good ones. And most of the world problems come from the not so good ones. Let us pick on Democrats and look at what some of them seem to be simplistically told to believe:
* All Democrats are good and never make a mistake
* All Republicans are bad and will destroy the US and the world
* The Tea Party is the worst and must be destroyed
* All unions are good and are helpful
* All businesses and job creators are bad since capitalism is evil
* All nations of the world, except the US, are good people who want peace
* The US needs no military since the rest of the world wants peace
* The racist KKK group is beyond horrible. But the racist NAACP, La Raza, and CAIR groups inspire love among all people.
* All Muslims good and tolerant people. All Christians and Jews bad.
* There should be no news allowed, not Rush Limbaugh, not Fox News which should be allowed another viewpoint. Forget free speech and press
* All White people are prejudiced and guilty. All Black people are innocent victims who would never do slavery
* Dictatorships are all good and freedoms slow us down. Forget the Dark Ages of tyrant kings. That could never happen again.
* All Gay people are sweet. All who do not applaud them are evil
* The constitution must go with freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right to bear arms, the freedom from unnecessary search since the left must stop the US right (conservatives) at all costs.
The problems are two. The first is that the above is what I simply call "racism" since it makes statements that include ENTIRE groups, but not by any facts or individuals. Therefore it is pure hate and also often of the innocent. The second item is below. Those who deal in the simple hate or love of racism will never see problems coming.
PROBLEM 2 - You Cannot Fix What you Say Does not Exist
When one believes in the racist extremism of the above, they no longer have tools to see issues that do not fit into their "ideology". Therefore they cannot fix things they claim never happened because according to their ideology. Some examples:
* Since all Democrats are good and all Black people are victims than anyone with a different opinion than Obama's policies must be a racist and be destroyed - by any means possible
* Russia did not go into Crimea since that is not allowed in this ideology. So we will just hold our breath and they will give it back
* China of course will not take the Japanese islands they are threatening. How could they? This ideology does not allow that
* Since Democrats are always right and capitalism is always evil, why not shoot job creators and that will somehow create more jobs, more food, more goods at a cheaper price? The answer is that this did not work in the USSR, did not work in Venezuela, and it is not working here. No one will create jobs if you treat them badly. This is really pretty simple. If you beat up the person you are married to, they are more likely to leave you than to worship you.
* Iran would not nuke Israel. How could they when the Democratic ideology says all nations want peace? Palestinians also would never send rockets into Israel since all Muslims are good people and Democrats are told to hate Jews who must be lying about rockets.
* Detroit did not go bankrupt since how could it? It has had endless Democratic party leadership great unions, and it beat the capitalistic companies there to a pulp. It did everything "right" according to the ideology. So do not even mention Detroit since it is impossible to go bankrupt
* Wisconsin cannot now be heading into a balanced budget with returning tax money to residents since Republicans are always evil. So ensure this story does not get out and tell everyone that it is false.
* Our economy is not bad since Democrats do everything correctly. There are plenty of jobs
* The US dollar is not threatened by Obama printing $85 billion a month of fictional money ($1 trillion a year)- since Democrats say it does not and truth is whatever they say (this might be $75 billion a month or less now)
* Obamacare does not hurt anyone since it came from Democrats. All those who have problems are liars - even if they die
* Muslims could not possibly be killing Christians and burning their churches. It must be that Christians are liars.
* Muslims could not possibly be shooting women for honor killings or for seeking an education since Muslims are fine people. Those news outlets are lying
* Much of the world was involved in slavery - both directions as slave owners and slaves. Africa was one of the worst and recently had issues had slavery. It is estimated that 23 million in the world today are slaves, 1 million of those are children. Monuments that are likely slave built such as pyramids, the China Wall, the four sided pyramids of Chichinitza Mexico, the handing gardens of Babylon, the giant statures of Easter Island - none of those were in white Europe. This is all rejected by the left press who says slavery only occurred in the US and only white people are at fault. A total absence of history, logic, morality and humanity - and a total true racist hatred of white people from Europe. And this also means that few will take slavery existing today seriously - since the left says it does not exist since it is not "in their ideology".
There is more, much more. As soon as people look at life "simplistically" - in a clear racist manner grouping people, there can come no good, and no defense against true evil.
If you think I am going to say go Republican, you could not be more wrong. They could simply do similar issues. Instead, give up dumb loyalty to some lying political group. Start thinking for yourself. Tell the world you now only respond to math, logic, valid history and ethics. Understand that in each group on the planet including Democrats, Republicans, Muslims, Christians, Jews, White people, Black People, Hispanics, Asians and others - that they are mostly good people. But also have the wisdom to look for the small percentage of bad people that thirst after money and power even if they damage others. They can come from .... any group. And that is why it is racist and stupid to just group people ... as political parties and ideologies want you to do.
The only real chance for world peace ... is intelligence. Think. Do not give others your brain. They think you are stupid and will believe whatever they say. Disappoint them.
