In 1992, Pat Buchanan famously called the Democratic National Convention a “giant masquerade ball at Madison Square Garden — where 20,000 radicals and liberals came dressed up as moderates and centrists — in the greatest single exhibition of cross-dressing in American political history.” This year, there was no mass gathering and the DNC was a “virtual” convention. However, there was still the same masquerade, with Democrats trying to fool Americans into thinking they are patriots and moderates, while rallying behind a radical, anti-white agenda.

Consider standard-bearer Joe Biden. Many media figures, including at Fox News, are praising him for his speech on Thursday night, even though it was mostly clichés. He began by quoting Ella Baker, whom he called a “giant of the civil rights movement.” She also supported the Communist Angela Davis and was a radical leftist. However, Mr. Biden said Baker provided “wisdom” when she said, “give people light and they will find a way.” Hard to argue with that. He claimed that if President, he would “be an ally of the light not of the darkness.” We must “choose hope over fear, facts over fiction, fairness over privilege.”

What does any of this mean? Mr. Biden never really explained, except implying that we have a moral obligation to vote for him because “character,” “compassion,” “decency,” “democracy,” and even “science” are all on the ballot. He also warned that we must be “ready” to handle “the most compelling call for racial justice since the ’60s.”

It’s an old conservative joke that if a meteor was about to strike the Earth, the last New York Times headline would be “World Ends, Minorities Hardest Hit.” Mr. Biden did something similar when he talked about the coronavirus’s economic damage, “with Black, Latino, Asian American, and Native American communities bearing the brunt of it.” He also said Kamala Harris’s “story is the American story,” because she “knows about all the obstacles thrown in the way of so many of our country.” Mr. Biden specifically referred to “women, black women, black Americans, South Asian Americans, immigrants, the left-out and left behind.” Of course, it was whites who were left out and left behind in his speech.

Well, not entirely. “Remember seeing those neo-Nazis and Klansmen and white supremacists coming out of the fields with lighted torches?” he asked. “Veins bulging? Spewing the same anti-Semitic bile heard across Europe in the ‘30s?” Mr. Biden said Charlottesville was the catalyst for his campaign. He did not mention that an independent investigation found that local Democrat officials were responsible for allowing, and arguably encouraging, the violence that day. Mr. Biden then said he met with George Floyd’s six-year-old daughter, and casually referred to Floyd’s “murder” as the “breaking point.” He concluded by appealing to John Lewis’s memory and said America can “do the hard work of rooting out systematic racism.”

Mr. Biden said America can be defined by one word, “possibilities.” How can we reconcile this optimistic vision with the “hard work of rooting out systematic racism?” Instead, he made another vague appeal to “the light.” “There’s never been anything we’ve been able to accomplish [sic] when we’ve done it together,” he added, hopefully unintentionally.

Potential vice president Kamala Harris began her speech Wednesday night by thanking “Black women,” who made her career possible. She thanked her immigrant parents and referred to her Indian heritage, checking off boxes for identity politics. Mrs. Harris said the coronavirus is “not an equal opportunity offender” because “Black, Latino and Indigenous people are suffering and dying disproportionately.” Why? She blamed “structural racism,” “inequities in education and technology, health care and housing, job security and transportation,” the “injustice in reproductive and maternal health care,” the “excessive use of force by police,” and racism “in the broader criminal justice system.” Like a Catholic priest appealing to saints, Kamala Harris invoked “George Floyd,” “Breonna Taylor,” and “the lives of too many others to name.” She didn’t mean white victims of black crime — or black victims of black crime.

Both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris support Black Lives Matter and want to destroy “systemic racism.” This implies a massive social engineering program because everything is racist according to Critical Race Theory. Worse, these are the “moderate” standard-bearers for the Democrats. These are the nominees Democrats are counting on not to scare white suburban voters.

Tucker Carlson pointed out some of the more extreme speakers or delegates at the DNC. These included:

  • Pastor Frederick Haynes intoning that “Jesus will say, America, you can, you may well go to hell” because the Trump Administration isn’t nice enough to immigrants.
  • A speaker, with a George Floyd mural in the background, adding “someday” to the Pledge of Allegiance
  • A transgender activist saying she didn’t know the Pledge of Allegiance because “I’ve never felt American.” In a separate incident, one speaker left out the words “under God” from the Pledge.
  • J Mai, a “Black Vietnamese transgender non-binary gender-transcendent mermaid queenking currently living out their ever-evolving truths in Winston-Salem,” confirming that “we’re talking about abolishing the police, we’re talking about abolishing ICE, we’re talking about abolishing prisons.”

Other lowlights:

Singer Billie Eilish said America needs “leaders who will fight against systemic racism and inequality” and that “our lives and the world” depend on the election.

Rep. Deb Haaland began her talk by saying we were on “indigenous land.” “My people, the Pueblo Indians . . . survived centuries of slavery, genocide and brutal assimilation policies,” she said. Those assimilation policies clearly didn’t work.

Illegal immigrant Silvia Sanchez addressed the convention in Spanish. Her daughter Jessica said, “I need health insurance, I deserve it, right?” She wants to be a lawyer so she can “help my community.”

Singer “Prince Royce” performed “Stand By Me” in Spanish in a video shot on graffiti-covered streets.

The daughter of an illegal immigrant who broke into this country in 1998 and violated an expedited removal order blamed President Trump for having “tore our world apart.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for a “movement striving to recognize and repair the wounds of racial injustice, colonization, misogyny, and homophobia and to propose and build a reimagined system of immigration and foreign policy and turn away from the violence and xenophobia of our past.”

Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said she wanted an America in which the president “doesn’t fan the flames of racism.” Bernie Sanders said President Trump “coddles white nationalists.” (The Trump Justice Department has acted against its own supporters after getting tips from antifa.)

Beto O’Rourke also referred casually to the “murder” of George Floyd, while Cory Booker nodded. Senator Booker also reportedly called Donald Trump “the most destructive, hateful, racist president in the history of this country who is literally tearing apart the fabric of the United States of America.” Presumably, that included presidents who owned slaves.

During the DNC’s final night, organizers displayed an image of Trayvon Martin behind the black man reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

All this was hidden behind clichés and vague language about unity and fairness. However, make no mistake: Racial grievances drive the Democratic party. A Biden-Harris Administration means an eternal war against “systemic racism,” with what’s left of our freedom of speech and Second Amendment rights sacrificed in he name of equality. The Democrats explicitly support Black Lives Murder and claim George Floyd was “murdered” before the trial even starts. These are not moderates. They are determined, anti-white, anti-Americans.

    ALZHEIMER’S PATIENT JOE BIDEN PROBABLY READ FROM A WRITTEN SPEECH.

    Joe Biden has severe advanced Alzheimer’s dementia, as he does not know who is running against or where he is.

    See the videos on youtube about his

    He basically read the speech written by his Jewish masters and uttered the words in his prerecorded deep fake video which were prefabricated and then uploaded on zoom to make it look like he is talking.

    The Democratic party is wholly owned and operated by the Judaists, who provide 50% of its campaign contributions and 90% more under the table to the Judaists.

    Kamla Harris is married to a Judaist.

    The Demogangsters are a criminal party with one Jewish mission—to exterminate the white goyim.

    Trump should insist on and go for the debates, and if Joe does not show up, attack him mercilessly and tell people that Joe he is hiding in his basement and has SEVERE dementia, show examples, etc.

  3. The Democrats election program, 2020.
    We are nice.
    We are not Trump.
    Trump is not nice.
    Nice is better.
    Better vote for us.

  4. because she “knows about all the obstacles thrown in the way of so many of our country.”

    And Kamala spread her legs to get over those obstacles.

    The only racism in the US is against white people that work for a living supporting the trash that votes for a living. Both parties aren’t worth spit. Both candidates are filth.

    I realize most people here are going to vote because they feel they must use the system that is purposely trying to destroy their future to somehow change that system. Sorry, it’s too late. The US is already leaning over and will hit the floor very soon. The US is a dead man walking. The next step is a shooting war to use up the US arsenal. This time, however, the obvious targets will land missiles on US soil.

  5. Jeez, I musta been asleep when MBNA Joe called for the workers of the world to unite and seize the means of production. Oh, wait a minute, that’s right, in some circles “radical” means “that word that scares the heck out of me even though I have no idea what it really means.”

  6. Mr. Biden then said he met with George Floyd’s six-year-old daughter,

    I’ll bet. Did she have a chaperone?

  7. If Trump were smart, he’d be running ads in majority black districts showing the pictures of Harris in a sari surrounded by her sari’d and turban’d Indian family to spread the message to blacks that she’s not one of us.

    That won’t get them to vote for him, but it might dampen their enthusiasm to vote for Biden.

    Exactly right. This little exercise has been mentioned on here before…but it needs to be stated again and again.

    Go to Google Images and enter the following:

    White American men

    Now

    Black American men

    Do you see the difference in what is presented…why do you think that is?

    Now enter:

    White American couple

    Now

    American inventors

    Do you see anything strange…why do you think that is?

    For more fun you can enter:

    Black American couple…see any Whites? Why do you think that is?

    Or other iterations of your choosing.

    I thought one of the most radical things about the Dem party and platform this season is the marriage to the neocon war mongers of the 00’s. The Bill Kristols, Max Boots and the Colin Powells. The attempted rehabilitation of W. The lack of a progressive foreign policy statement. The support of “forever wars”. My biggest letdown over Obama was how he was elected in 2008 to end the endless wars which the nation was clearly tired of. Obama promised to bring the troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan. Instead, he maintained those wars and increased them. Then he gave us Syria, Yemen, Libya, Sudan, and a host of other places we never hear about. My take was the Dems are the war-pigs, and Trump is not.

  11. Realist says:
    @Rational

    ALZHEIMER’S PATIENT JOE BIDEN PROBABLY READ FROM A WRITTEN SPEECH.

    Yes he absolutely did…a teleprompter.

  12. Regarding Biden’s referencing that it was Charlottesville which convinced him to enter the race, Mr. Hood left out the part where Biden said (I’m paraphrasing): he was disgusted when Trump said that there were “good people” on both sides. I remember the outrage in the media when Trump dared to say that some on the Right were good people. The media’s narrative, as well as that of the democrat party, was that those on the Left were heroes for fighting fascism/racism, even though the Right, who had a legal permit, did not initiate the violence.

    Since then, Antifa has been given carte blanche to engage in wanton destruction. After Charlottesville, Trump has had only empty rhetoric, leading the Right into its current state of despondency. Belatedly, after the rioting, looting, statue toppling, and flag burning began in earnest due to Officer Chauvin’s knee on George Floyd’s neck, Trump has attempted to quell the violence.

    But, as the nightly riots are allowed to continue in Portland and other cities, with Homeland Security forces ordered to retreat, is it too little too late? Trump seems more interested in forcing an untested corona vaccine onto the masses than he is in actually doing anything for White people.

  13. I do not think that there is amy possibility that America will improve in my lifetime as a result of systemic corruption, polarization, and animosity. I do not think that the biggest group of geniuses who had the most morally upright charcter could solve the problems of this country because in order for the dysfunctionalism to cease, cooperation of individuals is absolutely essential. People are at each others throats and many are unwillingy to admit that they are wrong, regardless of how many facts are thrown at them proving that they are wrong, Russia-gate, and covid-hysteria lockdown hoax covid economy and covid contact spying are clear examples of this. 

    There were individuals in the press on the left that I respected prior to covid that have been substantially diminished as a result of their loyalty to the covid hysteria, lockdowns, and increasing surveillance, and revocation of rights. I still agree with their anti-war policies, but I disagree with their pro-China stance. I am not anti-China in the sense that I would like to start war with China or sanction China, but I am not pro-China either and am extremely suspicious of their motives in their efforts in globalization. If people choose to overlook the problems that China has had with America regarding decades of one-way trade deals where China repeatedly has the upper-hand and keeps finding different reasons to refuse more American imports in addition to many other intellectual property disputes and the South China Sea, or conflicts with Far East  countries, and if people are willing to overlook China’s seizure of Brazillian gold mines in the Amazon ( hardly pro-environmen or anti-imperialist ) or their conflicts with people in Africa, then they should at least consider the way that the Chinese mistreat their own citizens and realize that if they treat their own citizens with authoritarianism and extreme censorship, that it is unlikely that they will remain unauthoritarian in foreign countries after the deals are done. America serves as a perfect example of this by showing that countries that do not treat their own citizens well, are not going to treat citizens of other countries well either. This is the nature of the globalists, regardless of which country they are from. It boils down to the same thing – exploitation of other sovereign countries. 

    The individuals in the anti-war left say that we must put our diffferences aside and all come together, but covid response and pro-China to the point of Sinophelia are differrences that I refuse to put aside, and their absolute refusal to admit that locking down the economy is diabolically evil just proves to me that these are individuals caught up in denying the existence of reality and “don’t confuse me with the facts, I listen to the chosen establishment propagandists.” 

    It is not possible for me to take those individuals seriously to work with towards a solution. It’s kind of like saying well we will solve this math problem together, but you must allow them to say that the first part of the equation is something that it is not, and I say no, I can’t go along with that because its wrong, and they say, well you don’t want to solve this problem together, but they are not even willing to admit what the problem actually is.

    It is insane.

    Things are debatable, like various social or economic policies, but when fiction is expected to be accepted as facts they are unreasonable and irrational.

  18. Google seem to promote “African” (as well as “Black”) in their (identity political?) image search engine.
    As a note Bing and DuckDuckGo give similar results for “American inventors” when using image search. Are they using Google’s image search?

    While text search give more relevant results Google still have most results for “African” and “Black” in the 10-20 top results.

    Interestingly the search result can change when doing the same search 15 minutes later!
    So how is that explained?

    Another answer is that there are different tactics used to be near the top of search results. Adding “White” (as in white background or clothes) to the already existing tags of “African” and “Black” can put black men in the white men search.

    However searching for Black man in white shirt vs White man in black shirt the combined result give more black men in the top result.

    Is that the sole result of the search engine or activism among internet content providers or a combination of both?

    I don’t know what your background is, but I can tell you that many of my working-class peeps either can’t see or don’t care that the Democrats are no longer the party of “the little guy.” Many of them have gone right along with the leftward drift on race, sexuality, etc. over the past generation. I have seen it happen in real time. It is a thing to behold. People who casually used the n-word 25 years ago now banging on about “racism” and such.

    One of the things to bear in mind is that getting a college education has only recently become as common as it is now. In generations past, you had White working-class families where most of the people were pretty bright, interested in politics, etc. Lately I have been toying with the idea that college indoctrinates people less than we think. Rather, the type of people who tend to become liberals also tend to go to college.

    Some have speculated that the Right attracts the dull and the especially bright, while the Left tends to attract the ~115 set. Who knows? It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.

    Come to think of it, might some of these working-class people be influenced by their college-educated children? Perhaps they feel intimidated and don’t want to seem like clueless, ignorant old fuddy buddies (Archie Bunker) to their more sophisticated first-generation college kids? Previous generations often didn’t even finish high school and sometimes carry around a bit of shame about it, so I can see that happening.

It’s the destruction of the American spirit because it’s one of the few things left that stands in the way of the Orwellian findmuck of the NWO.

    In summary this is an anti-white, anti-Christian campaign with Joe Biden just a front for these hate America groups. In addition, the reality is that multi-culturalism does ot work and perhaps Americas should be broken up into a number of different countries. This will not happen but it will be the only solution that will stop a civil war. But, civil war will come and if the whites prevail then America will be great again, if not then America will become South Africa, a nation that went from a first world nation to a third world nation in one generation.

    I agree…let’s hope they fail. But action must be taken, and the electoral process will not do the trick. This is a move to indoctrinate and disparage the White race…especially among the young. To me there is no other plausible explanation.

    “Dull” in this case probably refers to common people, the man or woman on the street, rather than stupid people.

    I’ve heard it put this way “Regular people believe X. “Smart” people believe Y. Really smart people believe X”
