I read this and found it interesting. It is what I have been saying for a long time now. I hope that this message continues to spread.

Recently, while campaigning for the upcoming midterm elections, President Obama engaged in classic liberal race-baiting by demagogically asserting that Republicans are counting on blacks not turning up to the polls. However, despite Obama's agenda in making that assertion, unfortunately, the underlying premise of his comment is accurate: the majority of blacks unthinkingly vote for Democrats in droves.

It is my contention that black people who diligently vote for Democrats are intellectual slaves to the liberal agenda, inasmuch as they, for the most part, are ignorant of the history of the Democratic Party and vote for policies that harm their communities. It is only a black intellectual slave who can observe the impact of liberal policies on the black community without having a scintilla of unease about pulling the lever for Democrats -- election after election.

Black liberals have been cleverly coaxed into believing that Democrats have their best interests at heart because these Democrats no longer don white pointed hoods, lynch people, and burn crosses. With more sophistication than the mass-murdering tactics they employed in the days of yore, Democrats continue to actively perpetuate insidious policies that keep blacks on the lowest rung of the socioeconomic totem pole.

The most prominent method that Democrats currently use to advance their atrocious policies in the black community is the use of black liberal elites as decoys.

Capitalism for the Goose, Socialism for the Gander

Unsurprisingly, the actions -- as opposed to the rhetoric -- of people who promote the "magnificence" of socialism show that they believe socialism is good only for others, whereas capitalism is fit for their lives.

Career race-baiters, like Al Sharpton, would not be doing what they do if there were little to no financial incentive. Fanning the flames of racial division across the country and incessantly calling for socialist handouts for blacks, frankly, would get rather boring without a lucrative $1,000,000 paycheck at the end of the year.

Likewise, Barack Obama has earned millions of dollars in royalties from his two soporific, self-important books, and he plans to continue his book-flogging bonanza by inking another deal for close to $2,000,000 for a children's book series.

Quick question: Why aren't these black men expectantly waiting with their hands out for food stamps from the government?

Sharpton can happily advocate socialist health care and all other sorts of government freebies that sound good on paper but are sub-par in reality because he is a multimillionaire. When he gets sick, he can afford to be treated at the finest hospitals with the best doctors in the world. Champagne socialists would never deign to subscribe to the policies they hypocritically foist on the masses, but the capitalist perks of promoting the "benefits" of socialism to black intellectual serfs is too profitable for a decadent hypocrite like Sharpton to pass up.

Socialism is nothing more than a deceitful left-wing farce that inherently creates a super-exclusive oligarchy under the laughable guise of egalitarianism.

If the Republican message to blacks of "stand up on your own two feet, stop relying on government handouts and benefits, get a stellar education, hone your native skills and talents, and work incredibly hard to make a massive success of your life" is something so extraordinarily depraved, why is it that the elite black left invariably follow the Republican roadmap to success in their private lives while advocating failed socialist tripe for the liberal black intellectual serfs?

From rappers to athletes to academics, every single black person who has made it out of unfortunate circumstances, climbed, and sustained his or her place at the top has done so through hard work and taking advantage of the capitalistic meritocracy in America.

Only mass intellectual serfdom in the black community can present an adequate explanation as to why the myth of "Benevolent Big Government" continues to prevail -- and why the black vote is almost monolithically given to the Democrats.

Uncle Sam: The Black Intellectual Serf's Worst Relative

A basic rule of economics is that if you want more of an activity, you subsidize it, and if you want less of an activity, you heavily tax it. Sadly, what Democrats have been doing for decades is subsidizing every bad action of impoverished blacks.

The most deplorable example of this is the exponential rise in the illegitimacy rate that came as a result of its liberal subsidization.

As was argued by the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan -- a rare sensible liberal -- the subsidization of illegitimacy poses all sorts of problems for the black community, including stymied economic progress, low IQs in children, high dropout rates, crime, and the dismantling of the black family.

Today, as a result of the Democrats' "well-intentioned" welfare policies, we now have a 70% illegitimacy rate in the black community, which will likely increase if the largesse of Big Government is not stopped.

Democrats have successfully addicted black liberals to the crack coc aine of government aid, so like any addict, black liberals keep coming back to the voting booth and pulling the lever for everything with a (D) after its name so they can get that next fix of Uncle Sam's free money.

Meanwhile, Sharpton and his profiteering ilk are raking in millions of dollars while countless blacks are suffering in intellectual slavery -- and are blinded to the fact that they've been robbed of all entrepreneurial vision and power that would allow them to create wealth and lift themselves out of a cycle of poverty.

The Democrat Emperor Has No Clothes

It's been nearly fifty years of failed Democrat policies, and all black intellectual slaves have to show for their decades of cultish allegiance to liberals is worsened poverty, a broken family structure, failing schools, massive black genocide via abortion, run-down communities, perennial joblessness, and almost every other social malady that can be imagined. Yet with, recent approval ratings for President Obama remaining steady at 91% among blacks, there is no sign of black devotion to their Democrat oppressors changing anytime soon. Black liberals are suffering from political Stockholm syndrome. These blacks are the Uncle Toms they accuse us freedom-loving black conservatives of being.

The need for Democrat cross-burning in order to keep blacks in the underclass is over. Democrats have succeeded in creating black intellectual serfs who are so swayed by the blandishments of Big Government and the empty anti-capitalist rhetoric of the left that they don't even realize they've been hoodwinked by some of the biggest beneficiaries of capitalism!

Unless black liberals realize they've been the victims of a decades-long election-buying rip-off perpetrated by the Democrats -- and advanced using the cat's-paws of the black faces in the leftist elite -- the black community will remain in the quagmire of despair it has been in since the Democrats started handing black people their scraps to live off.

The black community's allegiance to Democrats is among the most shameful political facts in American history -- and it can be ended only by the articulation of a true conservative message from passionate, intrepid, and ethnically diverse messengers.

I think Mr. Okeem hit he nail on the head with this article.
This is something I try and educate people on (mainly Progressive Liberals) because with all of their talk about "social reform" they refuse to see the true use of these programs by those in Power.
They don't want to see the ugly monster they are blindly supporting.
These programs are not in place to help minorities, they are there to enslave them.
Maybe I am wrong? Maybe the Progressive Liberals do understand what these programs do?
Maybe they think "That the Ends Justify the Means", that it is a price that must be paid to keep those they support in power?
I still like to give them the benefit of the doubt though
. I do not want to believe they are sacrificing these people in that way.
I should get my answer shortly, will they respond? or run from the subject?

Makes a great deal of sense. Its unfortunate that the majority of the black community look at people like Al Sharpton as a savior and protector that stands up for their race. They dont realize that he only defends the biggest of issues with the largest price tag. He is nothing more than a money monger that is a disgrace to his own race. He takes advantage and exploits his own people for his own greed.

I do not see why people support those that are actually doing them more harm than good. I just can't believe that they are all blinded.
Most social programs = modern slavery.

I guess I got my answer huh?
Well, it is the weekend, so maybe they are just out having fun.
I will still give'em the benefit of the doubt.
I can not believe they would support these people if they knew what they were doing.
Would they?

It would seem that I will now have rethink my way of thinking ,so to speak.
After what has happened with Juan Williams and NPR, maybe more of them know and accept this, than I initially thought.
Com'on left, tell me this ain't so.

This article is spot on. Just look at the concerted effort by a select few to keep fabricating an enemy to battle. Hence the race baiting in the past two years. The likes of Sharpton and Jackson are struggling to stay relevant. Sadly, they have all been helped by our President. A President who blew a tremendous opportunity to further unify our nation. Remember his campaign rhetoric to do just that? Obama is no more than a stoker of the flames and he was hired to do that for a reason. The Progressive elites are a devious bunch.

The author of this article is certainly not alone in his understanding of what has been happening over the years. Sadly, those Black Americans who have put all of their eggs in this basket of oppressive Progressive mediocrity will be left to the wolves when these same characters begin to focus on the next big minority that will help them maintain a political foothold. Hispanics beware. Maintain your focus. Above all, Keep your faith.

Thanks for posting this article.

It is a state of our society that this is so true.

This video says it all about the typically uneducated black African.

They have become a socialist slave,addicted to the government food trough.

But,there are black men of knowledge who have seen behind the deceit and know the truth about the people who appear to be for them.

I believe whole heartily what the man in this video is saying.

Most of the liberal elite are in their 60's and have created a power base in this country.

We sent our good men off to die in Vietnam,while this cowardly elite,took college deferments,and plotted to bring down the government.

Men who would have probably been this countries leaders now,died for nothing in the jungles of southwest Asia.

Great men who could have been leaders through the 60's and 70's when these socialist programs were implemented died in World War 2.

We were led into World War 1 by a progressive Democrat President.

We were led into World War 2 by a progressive Democrat President.

We were led into Korea by Democrat President.

We were led in to Vietnam by a Democrat President.

There is a pattern to this madness.

This man speaks of the what and how the Socialist Marxist's work to bring down a society.

Great videos olddude.
I could not agree with you more.
You know, I really don't want to believe that the everyday, run of the mill, liberal knows and accepts what's going on with the Democrat Party. But the more I study and read history how can they not?
There is no way to justify what is being done to one ethnic group, just to have your party in Power.

Any liberals out there? I figured (hoped) you would have tried to prove me wrong by now.

Must admit I am saddened but I was beginning to suspect as much anyway,
thanks to those who did respond,

sounds like another excuse for blacks to blame everyone but themselves for the crappy life most of them live. blacks have had all the same opportunities as every other race since the 70's atleast if not more. whites cant get a scholarship for being white yet every other race can.

That's called Affirmative action.
The main tool that is used to enslave these people.
Supposedly it is used to level the playing field. In reality all it does is stir up more race based issues, keeps the minorities right where they are wanted, and keeps them voting like they need them too.

i agree with the title of this thread; but think your scope in its use of just black intellectual serfdom is negligent of intellectual serfdom in general. but the cool thing about this thread; is that i can feel peace in that most of the prior posters before myself had no intelligence quotient relative of the acts of an intellectualist.

i will say; is it better to vote democrat in the face of rigged republican ballots or to not vote or to think an independent vote is worthy of a vote at all?

Ive found it revealing how liberals never point to Condoleeza Rice, Colin Powell or Oprah Winfrey when talking about Black Role Models.In fact, they dont like to talk about Role Models in general, they`d much rather feature "oppressed victims".

I think that "blacks" were used in the title because, as of right now, they are the largest group of minorities being used this way.
With that being said I say this:
Vote brother, check out the candidates in your area, look at what each has to offer and vote, Ind., Repub., or Dem.

The biggest problem we have today is the "blind vote", people just voting for whom they are told to, without knowing anything about the candidate.

Yeah vote Democrat, get your free spoon feeding. You are a Al Sharpton follower i presume?

I believe that the Democrats wooed the African-American voters to their side with the Civil Rights legislation. They pinned the Republicans against the wall with the legislation hoping to forever win a solid voting bloc for their party seeing as how they knew the Southern white voters would turn against them.

They were counting on the fact that the Republicans in the name of defense of property would vote against the legislation because it was forcefully intrusive into private property which the Republicans could never honestly vote for without breaking their philosophical roots. Harnessing this power they called for a vote on the legislation and conveniently had the Libertarian Conservative Barry Goldwater to say no to the legislation.

The Democrats took that inevitable no and ran with it conveniently forgetting to mention that Republicans supported equal rights while Democrats opposed it. By cutting the Republicans meanings short they were able to send a message to the black electorate that the Republicans were against their equality. Suddenly the Republicans lost the blacks to the Democrats in exchange for the Southern whites to the Republicans.

The GOP never wanted to keep blacks from equal rights but also didn’t want to pass legislation which would severely violate private property rights. That was a very dirty time in politics played by the Democratic leadership and they knew that sending all the bigots to the GOP to intermingle with the pro-property group would forever push blacks away from that party.

Now they have taught blacks that they have passed minority friendly legislation such as Affirmative Action to help them. That has not helped them. Blacks never wanted a hand-out they just wanted to stand on equal footing as everyone else. This is still true today. But they have been taught that supporting welfare programs is what is keeping many of them off of the streets yet the poverty rate among blacks is disproportionately high compared to whites and they are no better off receiving welfare than they are having the ability to get a real job.

It truly is intellectual serfdom when they teach them that being black somehow is a negative in life and they all need help to be equal to the white man. That is just ludicrous. Blacks have the same intellectual power as any other race and they are no less qualified for a white. Affirmative Action is spitting in the face of every black and every minority.

Blacks need to diversify their politics, allow themselves to vote for both sides without the fear being pulled by the big government crowed that they need a hand-out and a hand-up. Liberate yourself from the shackles of real oppression which is what you keep voting for established by lie and trickery. Bigots are no longer in charge any more on either side of the aisle, they have been banished to the corners for the scum that they are.
