Big Brother watches, lest Jim Crow return...

When it comes to Civil Rights Movement, America is like one of those "revolutionary" countries that celebrates incessantly the deeds of the revolutionary heroes (now long gone) while crushing anyone in the present who rebels in the slightest way.

From the Washington Times:

...Black Democratic leaders in Maryland say that racially tinged attacks against Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele in his bid for the U.S. Senate are fair because he is a conservative Republican.

Such attacks against the first black man to win a statewide election in Maryland include pelting him with Oreo cookies during a campaign appearance, calling him an "Uncle Tom" and depicting him as a black-faced minstrel on a liberal Web log...(Thanks to

The "Revolution" has spawned a vast nomenklatura ensconced in comfy positions, who drape themselves in the mantle of The Struggle, and wage endless war against The Old Regime, which is always about to return, unless the people are drilled and propagandized repeatedly. My daughter once said, "At my school, Black History Month comes four times a year."

Here the Old Regime is "racism," which is claimed to permeate the national psyche so indelibly that it can never be removed, but only struggled against forever by the thought-police. And any suggestion that ceaseless revolutionary struggle is no longer necessary is evidence that one is...racist!

Civil rights, as used in current Democrat Party parlance, has NOTHING to do with civil rights. It's more like a franchise they think they own, which entitles them to an income stream. If you bought a Burger King franchise, and somebody opened Burger King Deluxe across the street, you'd fight them with any weapon you could find. Mr Steele is being attacked just like Condi Rice or Clarence Thomas have been, for threatening the credibility of the leadership of the Permanent Revolution.

The real civil rights battle right now is over inner-city public schools, which crush the hopes of poor and minority children. And in this battle the Democrat Party is Jim Crow.
