Racism from Another Quarter

August 17, 2010

Meanwhile racism appears to thrive in another camp. Glenn Beck is perhaps the most public person to give vent to anti-black sentiments. But they’ve been smoldering at grassroots levels.

However whenever a TV commentator gets away with them, my own suspicion is that it causes the smoldering ones to burst into flame.

Again, in my view, this kind of rant will soon disappear from our midst. Goodbye to a world that won’t continue and won’t be missed.

Glenn Beck Outdoes David Duke With Shameless Race Baiting

Beck recently compared the U.S. under Obama to “Planet of the Apes” — it was one of the most thinly veiled racist rants in recent history.

“It’s like the damn Planet of the Apes. Nothing Makes Sense,” said Fox News Glenn Beck in a recent rant against President Obama and the America he has created. It was one of the angriest and most thinly veiled racist rants in recent history but simply a continuation of his general theme.

You might remember the original Planet of the Apes. It came out in 1968 and was based on the French novel “La planète des Singes” by Pierre Boulle. It was written as a science-fictionalized account on one possible outcome if Black Nationalism did succeed in the U.S. In the film, Charlton Heston, a white astronaut, crashes his aircraft on a primitive yet futuristic society where apes run the world and humans are intellectually inferior and enslaved species.

In the Planet of the Apes, humans cannot even speak. In ape society, there is a very specific class system, gorillas as police, military, and hunters; the orangutans as administrators, politicians and lawyers; and the chimpanzees as intellectuals and scientists.

The subtext of the Planet of the Apes, whether novel or film, has never been questioned. It’s not just science fiction but social commentary and Glenn Beck knew exactly the coded comparison he was making.

At this point, I really don’t know why Beck even bothers coding it anymore. Why doesn’t he just come out and say it. “I don’t like this N-word running the country, and you shouldn’t like it either, because he’s a dirty N-world and all us hard-working white folks know that N-words can’t be trusted.”

Not even David Duke got away with the crap that Fox News gets away with on a daily basis, but it seems our appetite for racism is endless. What makes it worse is that the mainstream media outlets won’t really take Fox News to task for its racism. Rachel Maddow did it recently on MSNBC, but it hasn’t changed a thing at Fox News.

Why? Because they don’t care. They know a good chunk of their viewers are racist, and they also know minorities generally don’t watch the network, and they couldn’t care less if they offend us. But what about decent white America? How is this really palatable to them? How does this network remain the most popular among all cable outlets, when they preach racism and hatred on a daily basis and do nothing but draw these archaic tribal lines in the sand?

Fox News created the tea parties during the health care debate. It validated this movement, hyped it up to no end and has actually tried to replace the Republican party with the far, far right base — which is where the tea party folks hail from. Here’s the former tea party leader, who recent resigned because of his overt racism, months prior showing us what he’s made

    Cornelius to Cl. Taylor.

    The Apes were here first and lived in a garden.
    The humans turned it into a desert with war and destruction.

    Very similar to what happened to the black in southern Africa when the anunakki turned them into a slave mining race. This subtle racism as blacks being intellectually less than continues to exist from earlier times and psychological manipulation of all races.

    These are not just third dimensional issues this exists on the fourth dimension. Hence the continual extraction of specific DNA types by other fourth dimensional beings. Cow Mutilations?

    Anyway, if you have not watched the original (5) five Planet of the Apes Movies, they are worth watching, in order!

    Peace.

    So cunning & sly! FOX’s very name [FAUX] implies they know exactly what they’re doing by spreading this sort of sewage over the airwaves.
