Dems Who Cry Racist
Is anyone else struck by the similarity of Aesop’s fable and that of Democrats in Congress as they attach the word racist to everyone who does not conform to their warped way of thinking? I am also reminded of the saying that one bad apple spoils the whole box.
In this case things really began when the pre-curser to the present day Congressional Black Caucus which was formed in the House of Representatives in the early 1970s. Not officially recognized by President Nixon, they began their resistance of Republican Presidents by boycotting (not attending) State of the Union Addresses, major speeches and have even donned racially specific attire to flaunt themselves as separatists from all other legislators.
With the 116th Congress there are over 60+ members of the CBC which is a racist organization sanctioned by the House. They are a “black’s only club” and restrict membership to those with dark skin only. They have self-proclaimed themselves as the “racial” police, similar to the “KKK” of old. It is their position to hunt down anything racially offensive in government and in particular President Trump’s Administration. It has become their battle cry of “RACIST” when anyone goes against them. Which would be a bit funny it they were not the racists doing the calling.
During the current 2020 Presidential Campaign season there are at least 2 members of the CBC running for the DCCC nomination (Sen. Cory Booker and Sen. Kamala Harris) with frequent input (name calling) by other CBC members such as Rep. Al Green, Rep. John Lewis, Rep. Maxine Waters, Rep. Elijah Cummings, Rep. Frederica Wilson, Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Ayanna Pressley and others who repeatedly use the racist card while publicly attacking and disrespecting the sitting President of the United States. Emboldened by here CBC standing Rep. Pressley has gone on television to state that she only considers Trump the occupant of the White House, not a real President.
I wonder what they are thinking as I’m reminded of the fable of The Boy Who Cried Wolf
The tale concerns a shepherd boy who repeatedly tricks nearby villagers into thinking wolves are attacking his flock. When a wolf actually does appear and the boy again calls for help, the villagers believe that it is another false alarm and the sheep are eaten by the wolf. In later English-language poetic versions of the fable, the wolf also eats the boy. This happens in Fables for Five Year Olds (1830) by John Hookham Frere, in William Ellery Leonard‘s Aesop & Hyssop (1912), and in his interpretation of Aesop’s Fables (1965) by Louis Untermeyer.
The moral stated at the end of the Greek version is, “this shows how liars are rewarded: even if they tell the truth, no one believes them”. It echoes a statement attributed to Aristotle by Diogenes Laërtius in his The Lives and Opinions of Eminent Philosophers, in which the sage was asked what those who tell lies gain by it and he answered “that when they speak truth they are not believed”. William Caxton similarly closes his version with the remark that “men bileve not lyghtly hym whiche is knowen for a lyer”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Boy_Who_Cried_Wolf
It did not end well for the boy who cried wolf and it surely will not end well for the Democratic Party as they have become a fractured entity, a hot-air balloon with a teeny, tiny pinhole that has yet to be detected due to the amount of hot air being spewed forth from many angles. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
