Congressional Black Caucus

trump-cbc-sotu It must be really embarrasing right now to be a member of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC). They all supported Obama for two terms. They all sang his praises for eight straight years. What did those two terms of the first Black President get them? Not squat. Well, unless you count increased racial division, race riots, high black on black crime rates, high unemployment which was aided and abetted by Obama’s policy of virtual amnesty for illegal aliens, and possibly the most corrupt Attorney General in the history of the US…

Oh, and forcing people to buy health care they may not have wanted, his famous pronouncement that “those jobs aren’t coming back,” and mocking Trump for saying they would. You know something about “What’s he gonna do? Wave a magic wand?” Well, maybe Trump does have a magic wand…

State of the Union for Blacks, 2018

While running for President, Trump promised to do more for Blacks in America during his first year in office than Obama had done in the previous eight years. He was mocked by “progressives” for that promise. America after all was in decline, and according to them it was the governments job to manage that decline. Trump was just giving people false hope.

Except he wasn’t. The reason America was in decline was because of policies promoted by so-called progressives. Excessive regulations. High individual taxes. The highest corporate tax rate (by a LOT) of almost every country on the planet. So what did Trump do? The President cut regulations – a lot of regulations. He got Congress to pass one of the biggest tax cut and reform bills in the history of our Republic. He promoted policies that cut illegal immigration – by a lot.

Results? The unemployment rate for Blacks (and also Hispanics) is at the lowest level it’s been since government started tracking unemployment. Reaction from the CBC? Unfortunately, the CBC’s reaction was predictable. After all, they’re leftists first.

Congressional Black Caucus Reactions to Trump’s SOTU

The reaction of the CBC to Trump’s SOTU was predictable. It should also be embarrassing. Here is a President who delivered on his promise to improve the lives of Black Americans. Lower taxes means more take home pay. Lowest Black unemployment in recorded US history.

So how did the CBC react? They just sat there on their ungrateful butts when President Trump announced the low unemployment rate for Blacks. Even worse, some (a lot) of them had scowls on their faces, as if they somehow disapproved of this good news. Why would they act that way? Is it because higher Black employment means less Blacks dependent on government? Are they pissed that a white guy did more for Blacks in just one year than Obama did in eight? Are they bitter that the so-called progressive policies they seem to love so much are a proven failure? I’m anxious to know…

Why do communists hate religion so much?

Why do communists hate religion so much? It’s an interesting question. Communists, after all, claim to be champions of “true” freedom, so why would they care what anyone chooses to believe? I know that Marx called religion the “opiate of the masses,” but why does one’s personal disdain for religion require that no one else believe it either? It’s not a small thing to communists either. If you click on the graphic, you’ll see a more detailed view of what I’m talking about. Also, it’s a fact that in every single communist country in the history of the planet, religion has been either banned outright or severely restricted? Why? Any devout communist will tell you that God doesn’t exist, so what is it to them if you believe in something that only “exists” in your mind? If God really isn’t real, then believing in God would be no “worse” than believing in Santa Clause or the Easter Bunny. Why then do communists hate religion so much that they feature anti-religious images in their art, and ban organized religion when they take over a country?

Why communists hate religion…

If you look at communism as an ideology, it becomes easier to see why communists hate religion so much. Communism isn’t just an economic theory, it’s an ideology that seeks to control every aspect of one’s life. Not just actions, but words and even thoughts. Step out of line and the State will punish you. In the former Soviet Union they sent dissidents to the gulags. Cuba has their political prisons. Step out of line in North Korea and you might get blown up by an anti-aircraft gun or face an even worse fate. Even trying to leave a communist country is considered a crime, often punishable by death. Why?

If communism is so wonderful, why would people living under it risk prison or worse for simply not agreeing with the State about the “benefits” of communism? Why would they risk getting shot in the back to escape such a glorious “worker’s paradise”? Because in fact the only people who benefit from communism are the lazy and the members of the ruling party. Instead of providing a “worker’s paradise,” communism results in a worker’s hell, with the working class reduced to being slaves to the State. But how does religion tie into that? How can a person’s belief in something the communists claim doesn’t exist be such a threat to the State that religious thought has to be wiped out?

Religion is a direct threat to the communist

In order for a communist state to exist, the State must be acknowledge as the highest authority. By definition, a belief in God is a belief in an authority higher than the State. It probably also involves belief in certain principles that are against the principles espoused by communists. For example, the sanctity of human life. Human individuality. Freedom of conscience. The right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. All of which are taught by religion (at least the Christian church I go to), and all anathema to communists, who demand absolute loyalty and subjugation. This, I believe, is why communists hate religion so much.
