Mr. LaRosa repeats Marxism’s “racism” and “war on women” mantras (“Take that, Republicans,” Letters, July 31) as if the words were stamped on a blank sheet of paper. Hobby Lobby will be paying for 16 out of 20 contraceptives called for in ObamaCare, and no abortions for religious reasons, which can hardly be called a “war on women.”
Our veterans hospitals are an example of what can be expected when ObamaCare kicks in. Soldiers who fought for our country and should have received the best care in the world died waiting to be treated. If your private physician is incompetent, you go to the next step up the ladder for recourse. Whom do you go to for help if government hacks botch your treatment? The next president? If ObamaCare is so great, why are government employees, including the senators who pushed the bill through, exempt?
The election of a black president in a country with a white majority should have put accusations of America’s racism to bed for a long time, but it didn’t. Racism will never be put to sleep because in order for Marxism to triumph, one group has to be set against another and calling someone racist is one of the best tools available. Americans must become not “we,” but, “us” and “them,” the rich against the poor, secularists against the religious, black against white. Race baiters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton keep the fires going because that’s the way they earn their livings.
Institutionalized (or government) racism ended with the Voting Rights Act. If the U.S. is so racist, why do we have 20 million illegal aliens in this country … with 59,000 unescorted children crossing our borders waiting to get in? Why aren’t blacks and Latinos risking life and limb trying to get out? Why aren’t they living where heaven already exists, in Cuba? What’s stopping them?
Muhammed Ali, on his return to America from a once-famous fight in Zaire, told reporters who greeted him that he had seen Africa and he was glad his great-grandfather had been sold into slavery in the U.S. He knew, even if most socialists don’t, that the opportunities to succeed and quality of life that existed here could be found no where else.
If Mr. LaRosa would “dig deep” he’d find that Ali is black. If he “digs deeper” he’ll learn that blacks were sold into slavery by other blacks and Arabs. “Dig deep” Mr. LaRosa. “Dig deep.”
