Well of course they would have. Any Black person associating themselves with this political movement needs to have their head examined. The article quotes a professor who says that the Right’s obsession with hating the federal government and reducing the size and power of government all goes back to the race question. Specifically, the Black Question. In other words, when people talk about small government, limited government and reducing the size and scope of the government, this all about the niggers. It’s code for “fuck the niggers.”
The obsession with limited government, reducing the power of the federal government, etc. goes back to the earliest days of our republic, and the questions regarding where and whether slavery would be legal and where and whether it would be allowed to expand. The small government folks were pro-slavery.
They feared that the Feds were out to outlaw slavery or at least restrict its expansion. As it turned out, their fears were correct. After the War, the same fears rose up again in the South over the Federal government’s Reconstruction efforts. This led to the state’s rights movement.
The state’s rights movement went on for another century. Opposition to the evil Feds and demands for a limited federal government rose up again in the Civil Rights era. The tyrannical feds were forcing integration on Americans who did not want it.
Similar lines of thinking continue today in opposition to social spending and taxation (taking hard earned White dollars and giving them to worthless, lazy, nigger criminals), affirmative action (The Feds forcing anti-White discrimination on Whites), hatred of government workers (public employees are mostly lazy niggers), etc.
This has all coalesced with the Tea Party’s rise alongside the election of Barack Obama. The tyrannical nigger-loving federal government had finally been actually taken over by the niggers themselves! A socialist nigger dictatorship out to destroy America and disenfranchise Whites.
That’s why these Tea Party rallies are full of redneck Whites armed to the teeth threatening to “take back America.” Take it back from whom? From the niggers, silly! Even the health care debate was all about race. Many commenters said that Obamacare was taking White money and using it to pay for health care for poor, lazy niggers.
I have long said that most US politics is really about race. That’s an exaggeration, but once you start looking at US politics though that racialized lens, so many things that previously made no sense start to become oh so crystal clear.
