Is Harry Alford A Racist?
Play The Race Card On This Guy
The man to the right is Harry Alford who just happens to be the President of the Black Chamber of Commerce. As I was doing my sorting of the news this morning I ran across this video of Laura Ingram interviewing Harry about his coming war on Obama and his administration. i'm not reporting on this because I'm a racist because I'm not a racist. But I always admire any man or woman who has the guts to calls it like they see it. He's pretty straight up about Obama and what he is witnessing. What is also very revealing here is the fact that he voted for Obama and "why" he voted for Obama. So take a listen to the interview for yourself. I played it in the background as I did other tasks but I listened to it in its entirety and I have to applaud this black man for his forthrightness.
He made a heap of sense to me. He sees the same things that many of us see on a daily basis with the Obama administration. So is Harry a racist? No, I think he sees that this nation is in big trouble because of people "hoping" too much about someone with the no experience or qualifications, just a very likable guy, being capable of steering the ship of state.
Recently, like just the other day, I have had people come on my Hubs and play the race card. That's nonsense. Because someone isn't biting Obama's socialistic policies like a dog bites a bone doesn't make them a racist. What it makes us are concerned Americans who know a wolf in sheep's clothing when we see one. Obama thinks the federal government is the answer to our prayers. That's the way a liberal, progressive socialist thinks. That last statement is a statement of fact if you know anything about socialism even one iota. Europe went that way for decades, learned their lesson and seems to be swinging back the other way. So you want us to sit still for a failed history lesson as it unfolds before our very eyes? I don't think so!
The large, tax dollar eating bloated federal government is not the answer to our prayers. You can't be everything to everybody. If you haven't learned that about life yet, I suggest you get a clue soon. As the federal government over time morphed itself into Big Brother creating entitlement after entitlement to appease the masses, it was a recipe for disaster. We are now facing that economic disaster and it is making the same people who over decades helped to foster that mentality squirm like a worm on a hot rock.
I found it refreshing that there is a black business leader who sees what many of us see. The answer isn't found in government regulation, government policies or mandates. It sure isn't to be found in Obama. What has made this nation strong is the free enterprise system, not some stupid, knuckle headed group of professional pick pockets. That's a synonym for being a career politician.
Am I a racist? Not by the stretch of anyone's imagination. Is Harry Alford a racist because he disagrees with what he sees coming out of this anti-business administration? Not by any means. No matter what Obama says about his "pro-business" attitude, look very deeply, as Harry has, at the actions being conducted below the radar. Obama sees the business community as a threat - a serious threat.
Have a great Monday this May 2nd of 2011.
