Biden’s Race-Baiting: SOP For The Minority Occupation Government
Mitt Romney’s campaign bleated ineffectually when Vice President Joe Biden told a largely black audience that Republicans would “put y’all back in chains” on Tuesday. The Obama campaign arrogantly said it had “no problem with those comments.” [Biden on Romney: ‘They’re going to put y’all back in chains’, Washington Free Beacon, August 14, 2012]
No surprise here: the Democratic Party excels at race baiting; it is their Standard Operating Procedure, fundamental to the demagogic electoral strategy of their Minority Occupation Government; and they’ve been doing it all summer. Let’s analyze a typical earlier example: State Sen. L. Louise Lucas (D-Portsmouth), a campaign surrogate for President Obama in Virginia:
“Mitt Romney, he’s speaking to … a segment of the population who does not like to see people other than a white man in the White House or in any other elective position,” Lucas said Tuesday. “Let’s be real clear about it — Mitt Romney is speaking to a group of people out there who don’t like folks like President Barack Obama in any elective or leadership position. We know what’s going on here. And some people may be afraid to say it, but I’m not. … He’s speaking to that fringe out there who do not want to see anybody but a white person in a leadership position.”
Lucas is a member of Obama’s “Truth Team,” speaking on the president’s behalf on various campaign issues in Virginia….
“I absolutely believe it’s all about race, and for the first time in my life I’ve been able to convince my children, finally, that racism is alive and well,” she replied.
“Even in Virginia?” Fredericks [a radio interviewer] asked.
Lucas: “In Virginia? How about all across this nation — and especially in Virginia”…
“I know there are people who are probably cringing in their seats because they don’t want to hear it,” she said on the show. “But it’s time that we face the reality that we need to have a national discussion on racial issues.”

Besides from her Senatorial duties she is also doing her part to keep racism alive today.
And Lucas is far from alone:
“I agree with almost everything she said. I mean she’s talking from the heart,” said [Virginia State] Senator Henry Marsh (D-Richmond). “I mean I’ve been in public office since 1966… race is a factor.”
“We just have to deal with it,” he added.

Sen. Lucas is a professional Black Woman Politician (BWP), not to be confused with professional politician who happens to be black and female (a mythical creature). Allow me to summarize her 40-year career:
- B.Sc. in “Vocational-Industrial Education” (i.e., she learned a trade) at historically black Norfolk State University
- rose from the rank of Apprentice Shipfitter at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard to become the “first Woman Shipfitter” (her actual title?) a mere two years after Nixon implemented modern Affirmative Action
- “Command Federal Women’s Program Manager” for the Atlantic Fleet
- “Equal Employment Manager” at SUPSHIP
- M.A. in “Urban Affairs” with a concentration in “Human Resources Planning and Administration” (i.e., she is a black woman of average or better intelligence) at Norfolk State University
- Executive Director of the Southeastern Tidewater Opportunity Project, an utterly corrupt, black-run “non profit anti-poverty agency” (Virginian-Pilot, February and March 2011)
- “Congressional Liaison for Sponsored Program,” whatever that means, at Old Dominion University
- Assistant Professor in the “Department of Academic Affairs,” whatever that means (certainly not teaching), and “Special Assistant to the Vice President for University Advancement,” whatever that means, at good ol’ Norfolk State University, whose mission is “[t]o provide an affordable, high-quality education for an ethnically and culturally diverse [and yet somehow still overwhelmingly black] student population”
- President and “Golden Heritage Member” of the NAACP, better known as the National Association for We’re Black so Give Us More Free Stuff
- Charter Member of the “Martin Luther King Leadership Steering Committee,” bravely fighting tunnel tolls in Portsmouth
- litigious, profiteering, race-baiting, tantrum-throwing State Senator (D-Portsmouth): see below
If there’s anything nice at all that can be said about state Sen. Louise Lucas’ $97.7 million lawsuit against the city of Portsmouth — and, more to the point, the city’s taxpayers — it’s this: At least she stopped short of asking for a full $100 million.
Ordinarily, bullies don’t pull their punches that way.
Bullying is exactly what Lucas, who heads two companies seeking to build a hotel and conference center at Victory Village, is up to in her recent court action. The suit mentions a long list of people who have crossed her by not supporting her repeated bids for government help in funding the $67 million project….
Lucas’ companies also contend in their suit that the [city] council’s rejection was racially motivated; the shareholders in the conference center project are primarily local African Americans.
The charge of racial discrimination is specious, irresponsible and incendiary. The problem with this project isn’t the color of the investors’ skin, or their belief that the project is needed to serve the black community and would advance economic development among African Americans. The fundamental flaw, from the very beginning, has been the propriety of a state lawmaker seeking government assistance, in any form, for her own development….
By filing suit against the very people she represents, Lucas has rendered herself useless in the state Senate, at least when it comes to representing Portsmouth. If she and her companies press forward with the legal action, they’ll inflict tremendous financial damage on a city that is already struggling to educate its children, pay its law enforcement officers a competitive wage and provide other basic services.
She dropped the suit after the court denied her a second time, but not before costing the City of Portsmouth $90,037.35 in legal fees [Lucas' lawsuit against Portsmouth cost city $90,00, By Jen McCaffery, The Virginian-Pilot, March 14, 2009]
In February, 2012, at a meeting of the Senate Education and Health Committee, Sen. Thomas A. Garrett (R-Louisa) criticized opponents of “a bill that would make it easier to fire poorly performing teachers,” claiming they did not understand the Constitution.
It’s quite possible they don't. Sen. Lucas was among the bill’s opponents. Since incompetent teachers are disproportionately black, the senator’s stance may be based in part on her racial/ethnic loyalty or tribalism—which is universal, but is now Politically Correct only for minorities.
In any case, Lucas took it personally.
[Sen. Stephen H. Martin (R-Chesterfield), chairman of the committee] said that Garrett’s comment was not directed specifically at Lucas, but that she clearly took offense.
Lucas shot back that she didn’t appreciate being lectured by “a junior member of the committee.”
She was even less appreciative a little later, when Martin spoke up to say that everyone on the committee — junior or not — has a right to speak. He didn’t name Lucas, but she knew she’d been chastised.
Sen. Lucas felt she had been twice “disrespected” (or “dissed”).
Among blacks, especially those of low intelligence, “disrespect” typically refers to any sort of opposition or criticism, however mild. Experiencing “disrespect” often causes them to lash out violently, sometimes fatally; see here, here, here, here and here for some examples from recent years.
In this case, Sen. Lucas
stormed out of the meeting — but not before taking one page from her three-page proxy vote and slamming that on the table in front of the committee chairman, and throwing the second toward the committee clerk. (She apparently left the third, in less dramatic fashion, with the committee member she’d entrusted to cast her proxy.)
“She dropped her proxy off with me in a very forceful way,” confirmed Sen. Stephen H. Martin (R-Chesterfield), chairman of the committee. “There was a piece of paper that flew my way (on its way to the clerk). It didn’t hit me.”

Finally, Sen. Lucas fiercely opposes any so-called Castle Doctrine in Virginia, which would allow “a lawful occupant use of physical force, including deadly force, against an intruder in his dwelling who has committed an overt act against him, without civil liability.”
From a Second Amendment point of view, there are in fact good reasons to question some recent Castle Doctrine-type bills in Virginia. For example, though the state’s common law is already strong on gun rights, according to Philip Van Cleave of the Virginia Citizens Defense League some of those bills have required an “overt act” of hostility to justify deadly force — “a step backward” for gun rights, especially in the hands of an activist liberal judge. [Castle doctrine’ bill fails with help from Va. gun-rights group, By Laura Vozzella, Washington Post, March 7, 2012]
But Sen. Lucas’ opposition to the Castle Doctrine, like her opposition to firing incompetent teachers, seems to be just tribalism: violent criminals, particularly home invaders, are disproportionately black. It is therefore not surprising that Sen. Henry Marsh, her supporter in smearing opposition to Obama as “racism,” is a key ally in Sen. Lucas’ attack on gun rights. [Gun bills may be shot down in special Va. subcommittee, By Julian Walker, The Virginian-Pilot, March 2, 2010]
Sen. Lucas is a loyal soldier for Obama’s “Truth Team.” That dubiously named organization comprises “a trio of Web sites dedicated to providing supporters with information on the president’s record — and more than a little dirt on his Republican rivals” Its objective:
to arm millions of surrogates with the facts [sic], figures [sic] and talking points they need to engage in ground-level political combat — on their Twitter and Facebook feeds and in old-fashioned conversations [sic] with friends and neighbors. [Skepticism mine]
“We believe that our grass-roots supporters persuading their networks to support the president will provide us with the decisive edge in November,” Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said. “We’re providing them with the tools they need to amplify the president’s record, fact-check the Republicans’ attacks and prevent the Republicans from rewriting the history of their records.”
Are you having trouble making sense of “mainstream” American politics? Here, let me help you.
- “Democrat” = “liberal” = “progressive” = “mainstream” = Cultural Marxist.
- “Republican” = “conservative” = “right-wing “= controlled opposition.
Actual opponents of the racial/cultural-Marxist regime, who of course cannot be part of the “mainstream,” are identified by terms like “racist,” “fascist,” “bigot,” “ignorant,” “Nazi,” “white supremacist,” “white nationalist,” “white separatist,” “KKK,” and “America’s most detestable sacks of s***”.
(Among the latter: VDARE.com’s Peter Brimelow and ProEnglish’s Bob Vandervoort, at least according to actual s***-sack Alex “Scary Black People” Pareene.)
