Some Profound Stuff....Sponsored by El Zorro, critiquing another analysis

From a writer who irritates everyone, whether democrat or republican, with his writings......interesting!
How's this for a hot potato? 
Fred Reed (born 1945 in Crumpler, West Virginia) is a writer and was formerly a technology columnist for The Washington Times. 
A former Marine and Vietnam War veteran, Reed is a police writer and an occasional war correspondent. He currently writes weekly columns for the website Fred on Everything. His work is often satirical and opinionated. 

Reed notes that his columns are often provocative and calls himself, "an equal-opportunity irritant." His output does not fit into conventional political classification (although he does embody many libertarian philosophies); it includes attacks on feminism (generally the province of the left), George W. Bush (generally the province of the right), Israel (though not of Jews in general) and evolution (generally the province of religious fundamentalists). 

Many of Reed's articles speak of a yearning for a simpler time and urge the reader to forgo the pursuit of money and comforts in favor of a cultured life of the mind. Reed currently lives in Mexico. 

Black Power: A Done Deal 
By Fred Reed   

It is curious that blacks, the least educated thirteen percent of the population, the least productive, most criminal, and most dependent on governmental charity, should dominate national politics. Yet they do. Virtually everything revolves around what blacks want, demand, do, or can't do. Their power seems without limit. 

Courses of instruction in the schools, academic rigor, codes of dress, rules regarding unceasing obscenity, all must be set to suit them, as must be examinations for promotion in fire departments, the military, and police forces. 
Blacks must be admitted to universities for which they are not remotely qualified, where departments of Black Studies must be established to please them.  
Corporate work forces, federal departments, and elite high-schools must be judged not on whether they perform their functions but on whether they have the right number of blacks.   
Do laws requiring identification to vote threaten to end multiple or illegal voting? The laws must go. Do blacks not like Confederate flags? Adieu, flags. Does Huckleberry Finn go down the Mississippi with the N****r Jim, or did Conrad write The N****r of the Narcissus? These must be banned or expurgated to please blacks who haven't read them or, usually, heard of them. Do we want to prevent people coming from regions infested with Ebola from entering the United States?  
We cannot. It would offend blacks. 

We must never, ever say or do anything that might upset them - as virtually everything does.  
It is positively astonishing. One expects the rich and smart to have disproportionate power. 
But America is dominated from the slums. One might think that a single set of laws should and would apply to all citizens, and that things should be done without regard to race, creed, color, sex, or national origin, and that all should have the same rights and responsibilities. 
It is, sadly, not so. 

The dominance of the media by blacks is impressive.     
If a white shoots a black to defend himself, it becomes national news for weeks, or months, and riots follow. But when blacks engage in their unending racial attacks on whites, the media demurely look the other way. The attackers are never black. They are "teens." Reporters who say otherwise are likely to be fired. In effect, the thirteen percent censor the national press. 

Much of their mastery has become so deeply engrained as no longer to be noticed. There is the DC Hesitation. In the bars and restaurants of Washington, a man weary of an incompetent affirmative-action hire in his office will, before commenting to a friend, lean forward, lower his voice, and look furtively over both shoulders to see whether anyone might overhear: The DC Hesitation. People don't even know that they are doing this. 
Defensive behavior by whites has become nearly universal. A sort of Masonic recognition-ritual occurs among white people recently introduced in social gatherings. Is the other person, for want of better terms, a liberal or a realist? Dare one speak? One of them will say something mildly skeptical about, say, Jesse Jackson. The other rolls his eyes in shared disgust. The secret handshake. Or, if the listener is politically correct, the bait is not taken. In either case, blacks dominate political conversation.   
So extreme is the power to control speech and even thought, that politicians have to avoid mentioning watermelons, or that neighborhoods of high crime must delicately be called "sketchy" instead of "black," though all understand who lives there and what is meant. The avoidance of racial reference is not an even-handed if despotic attempt to oppose racism since, as we all know, blacks freely apply any derogatory wording they choose to whites. In short, they rule. Which is amazing. 
The dominance extends to children. When in junior high one of my daughters brought home a science handout with common chemical terms badly misspelled in a way which suggested a particular speech pattern. "Is your teacher black?" I said without thinking. "Daaaaaaady!" she said in anguish, having made the connection but knowing that she shouldn't have. 
Blacks control what you can say to your own children in your own home. 
And of course if I had gone to the school and demanded that the teacher be fired, it would have been evidence of my depravity and probable KKK membership. 
The word "unbelievable" has lost all force. 
Things that ought to be unbelievable, and once were, have become routine. 
Still, there it was: Don't expect a junior-high teacher to have the level of literacy I had in the fourth grade. 
Instead, make it dangerous to notice their stupidity. 
This is not new, and it hasn't changed. In 1981, in a piece for Harper's, I wrote: 
"The bald, statistically verifiable truth is that the teachers' colleges, probably on ideological grounds, have produced an incredible proportion of incompetent black teachers. 
Evidence of this appears periodically, as, for example, in the results of a competency test given to applicants for teaching positions in Pinellas County, Florida, cited in Time, June 16, 1980. 
To pass this grueling examination, an applicant had to be able to read at the tenth-grade level and do arithmetic at the eighth-grade level. 
Though they all held B.A.'s, 25 percent of the whites and 79 percent of the blacks failed. Similar statistics exist for other places." 
Nothing has changed. Blacks now control the presidency and thus, most importantly, the Attorney Generalship. In this the staggering political power of blacks is most evident. 
Obama was elected because he was black: an equally unqualified and negligible white politician would have had no chance. 
He is now fiercely pushing the most profound transformation of America ever attempted, by opening the floodgates to immigration from the south. 
To effect this end he apparently will simply ignore Congress and the Constitution. The people will not be consulted. Laws will be ignored. 
It is hard to imagine why he does it except from racism, from a desire to get even with whites by enrolling their country in the Third World. 
A short-sighted policy, yes, since Hispanics do not like blacks and will soon be more powerful-but that will come a bit later. 
Note that self-inflicted problems of blacks consume inordinate amounts of public and governmental attention, even though only blacks can solve them. 
I might say, "should solve them," since they never have and we all know they seem to have no desire to do so. Yet we hear about them endlessly. 
Are blacks in Chicago killing each other in large numbers? The solution might be to stop doing it, might it not? While I do not wish these young dead, I can do nothing to stop them, and it is not a problem I can solve. 
Are black children growing up illiterate? This gives me no pleasure, and I have various reasons both selfish and moral to wish it were not so. But perhaps the solution is for their parents, or parent, to see that they do their homework, or even to teach them. I cannot do this for them, and again it isn't my problem to resolve. 
Why do I have to hear, endlessly, about the "achievement gap?" Whether of genetic or cultural origin, it seems as immutable as Avogadro's number, and I can do nothing about it. I raise my children. They need to raise theirs.
They rule. It is astonishing.

John,  In regard to Mr. Reed:

(El Zorro responds to a friend concerning the above article by a Mr. Fred Reed.)

    Unfortunately, the blacks have not earned anything, power notwithstanding.  Blacks as a group of people (I dare not say race) are not totally responsible for the perception they have power or even that it was bestowed on them by any other group of people.  Individually I believe all people have essentially have the innate propensity for achievement and prosperity.  However, the ruling class in the U.S. of A. have eaked their way to the highest levels of government by never quitting and always pushing.
  Obama is the result of the last century’s left turn starting with Woodrow Wilson and the great society and the Rules for Radicals guide book.  The conservative mostly white male majority did not get caught with their pants down, they simply did not see the progressives sneaking up on them.
  The 13% black majority didn’t have to do anything except take everything that was, and still, is being given to them.  What that is happens to be bright shiny things that have no worth in terms of integration into a shining city on the hill which is more like a refrigerator light after the pounding administered by the socialist anti colonialists who have their hands on the controls of what was the greatest experiment in freedom ever conceived.
  Mr. Reed suggests that the blacks have “power”.  I don’t think so.  They have the illusion of power.  The real power has no race, only an ideology that is immoral and ever reaching for more power without regard to what is right for all.  The color of power doesn’t matter.  If we do not pay attention, we will all be N*$%#)s.

    If I have Mr. Reed wrong, well this is my belief anyway.  I am not making excuses for blacks, they need to clean up their own mess but they are not in power.  Obama is not even a real black.
El Gringo Viejo responds and observes:

     I am afraid that we are all N*$%#)s.

     It is an issue of the Fabian elitists requiring an underclass so as to remain in the kind of power they relish.  The Fabians, the progressives, the national socialists, the latter-day bolshies, and all nature of leftist Utopians.
     The problem with it all is that the underclass has little to do save serve time in prison, copulate, murder and kill and do other criminal and violent acts, and lethargise.   It is the wondrous power of the benevolent racism of low expectations.  And it is the fruit of plantings of forty years in the media, the collegiate theatre, and the only thing worse than the military-industrial complex perhaps;  that being the fusion of the intergenerational welfare dependent with the crony capitalist welfare servicing class, and the enslaving-benevolence government-worker class.   Mix those three Armies of Decay into one huge force, united by Hillarys who do so much for women and Soeteros  who do so much for "minorities" and Pocahantas Warren who comes up with so many new ideas about how to redistribute other peoples' wealth....and the nation is pretty much like the little Dutch Boy, pictured above.

     The dike has to break.   Throw in more and more unqualified hordes of people who are nothing like the people who came before 1970 either to stay temporarily or permanently and we have an even more perfect cauldron of boiling poison. 

     Of the Arabic Moslems who have settled in the United States during the past 15 years, many as "refugees",  90% are receiving food stamps and / or monetary subsidies.   The first thing the women who came with the "minor children" to the border last summer did, once released with a promise to appear....( of which 85% are now delinquent in their promise to appear before an immigration magistrate)....was to disappear from view.  But,  at least they did provide cover for at least several thousand MS-13 and similar members of incomprehensibly violent gangs.   The press calls them "migrants" or "refugees".

     It has all been a plan.  So, El Gringo Viejo sides with El Zorro.  It took me several readings of both the Reed analysis and El Zorro's analysis of Reed's work.   Reed, in the final analysis, lists a lot of symptoms of our cultural decline, especially as it relates to the Negro and Mulatto population.   I would point out that the GOP has made strangely significant inroads amongst the Black folks who have crawled away from or never been on the Plantation Roosevelt.   The GOP poobahs, however, want to have a "big tent" by saying that we will develop more programmes to "reach out" to "minorities" .
     Like what?   Midnight Basketball, pray tell?  Negro Weather Report?  How about Aid to Families with Dependent Children?  That'll work!!   It never has before, so it's bound to really work this time!!!!

     It is lunacy.  The flood of Latins pleasantly inundating the Republican Party of Texas during the past eight to ten years, come because they are fleeing the "helping hand" of government provided subsistence.   We are the party that has two governors with Mexican ancestry and in Texas we have a Latin  United States Senator, and Governor (President) with a Latin wife, and therefore children of such ancestry....we don't even think about these things anymore.   The Latin cohort of the population in Texas is now probably 50 per cent prone to be found in the Elephant Corral.   They loath the idea of amnesty, accommodation to the illegal alien inundation, and the comprehensive welfare system that is in place.  They are never heard from unless one disregards Jorge Ramos and the Obsolete Press completely and then listens to concrete facts.

     The Black folks having power?   No...they are convenient vessels to float into the cesspool being built by the Utopians who, of course, do not have to live in or near the cesspool.   They live in the Hamptons and on Martha's Vineyard.....with armed security.  They can kill inconvenient mistresses and dump them in Chapaquiddick Sound and pay a 25 dollar fine.   They live in the "real world".   El Zorro is correct.   To the ones who have the real power, we are all N*$#%)s.
