Why do conservatives assume that black people’s views on society are a result of brainwashing?

35 Questions

This is part 18 in a series of 35 questions. It is based on a series of questions answered by John Hawkins for Townhall.com: here, and here.


18. Why do conservatives assume that Black people’s views on society are a result of brainwashing by the left rather than by our own experience?

The ridiculously short answer? Because they keep voting for politicians and leaders that promote programs that have been shown not to work; programs that don’t help them, and in the long run hurts them. Yet they keep voting for the same programs, and the same leaders. We throw more and more money at the problems they want fixed, but there’s no sign of improvement.

And black people that think outside the box, and try to persuade others to try something different? They’re traitors; Uncle Toms.

If that doesn’t sound like brainwashing I don’t know what does.

Democrats see ‘crumbs’ and ‘scraps’ with new tax cuts, Americans see bigger paychecks and more jobs | Fox News

The disconnect between what congressional Democrats are saying about the recently enacted tax cut and what is happening in the real world is so wide that it is getting difficult to see across the chasm.

Washington Is Broken

Every once in a while I read, or hear, the statement: Washington is broken. And for the most part, everyone agrees that it’s broken, liberals and conservatives alike.

The thing I find interesting about this situation is that both sides want to treat the problem differently. Conservatives want the government to shrink, the idea being that smaller government will mean less broken. Liberals on the other hand, want to expand the government, essentially expanding the broken. Apparently liberals don’t care that the government is broken despite their complaints about it.

Quick Marks (September 4)

Quick thoughts on some of the past week’s news: Dave Grohl feels like an alien; Those who are supposed to protect us from violence don’t know how to protect us from violence (Antifa); and possibly the highlight, an Australian woman who grew up with two lesbian mothers explains how unhappy she was.

Dave Grohl on how Donald Trump inspired Foo Fighters’ new album – NME

Dave Grohl discusses how Donald Trump & subsequent ‘wave of conservatism’ shaped his lyrics on Foo Fighters’ new album ‘Concrete & Gold’

Grohl also added that being in the US during the “conservative wave” that came with the rise of Trump reminded of the ‘alienation’ he felt as a teenager.

“It’s weird,” said Grohl. “It really sparked a lot of my early, alienated, freakish punk rock feelings from when I was a teenager. I was one of those little freaks in his blue bedroom in the middle of a really conservative part Virginia feeling like I was just an alien. I started feeling that way again.”

I have news for you Dave. Everyone feels like an alien at times in their life. How do you think conservatives felt for eight years under Obama’s administration?

Come to think of it, as a Christian, we’re supposed to feel a little alien. Like we don’t belong.

FBI, Homeland Security warn of more ‘antifa’ attacks

Confidential documents call the anarchists that seek to counter white supremacists “domestic terrorists.”

“Everybody is wondering, ‘What are we gonna do? How are we gonna deal with this?’” said the senior state law enforcement official.

If your senior state law enforcement official is asking, how are we gonna deal with this, I think it’s time to get a new senior state law enforcement official.

It’s not that hard to figure out. Bring in more police. If the police can’t handle it, call in the National Guard. Oh, they did? Maybe they should be allowed to do their jobs.

I think the bigger problem is that Democrat politicians and the Main Stream Media are contributing to the problem by blaming the victims of the violence. But that’s what they do best: blame the victims. It doesn’t matter that the victims are hate groups. A lot of Christian groups are wrongly considered hate groups, so how long before Antifa starts showing up at Christian gatherings with their violence?

Violence is never acceptable.

Australian Woman Who Grew Up With Two Lesbian Mothers Explains How Unhappy She Was

A woman from Australia who grew up with two lesbian mothers and no father figure has spoken about her experience and why same sex marriage isn’t good for children.

This is a pretty interesting read, but make sure you watch the video.

She also has a YouTube channel: Millie Fontana. Unfortunately, there’s only a couple uploads.

The Illegal Immigration Problem Is A Democrat Problem

The illegal immigration problem falls squarely in the lap of Democrats. The laws are clear that illegal immigration is a crime, but Democrats, primarily, have been aiding and abetting these criminals for years. Hundreds of people have died attempting to cross the border. They try to blame it on tightening security along the border, but the bigger problem is the hope on the US side.



They can get jobs. There are US citizens who will hire them, despite knowing they are here illegally. They hire them for the work “no one wants to do” and they pay them less than minimum wage. Generally I’m all about keeping down the cost of doing business, but I’m against breaking the law to do it.

There’s a good chance they won’t be sent back to where they came from. Democrat run sanctuary cities won’t arrest them, and at times, have even let them go after committing crimes. Democrats actively try to skirt the law, because of “compassion.” Don’t worry about the law, we’ll fix that. We’ll ignore the parts we don’t like.

It’s the fault of Democrats who allow illegal immigrants to get driver’s licenses, attend public education, vote in some towns, and they even hold office in one town!



It is the fault of Democrats because they refuse to differentiate between legal and illegal immigrants.

Amnesty won’t stop the flow of people dying in the desert between Mexico and the US. If anything, it will only encourage more people to try and make it.

People didn’t just start complaining about the illegal immigration problem in the last couple of years; they’ve been complaining for years and no one has been taking them seriously. The laws are there, but law enforcement has gotten lax. It’s finally come to a head. I would argue that’s one of the reasons Trump was elected over Hillary. It has nothing to do with xenophobia: “a dislike of or prejudice against people from other countries1,” and everything to do with the law and the burden placed on society. People watch the news and see illegal immigrants getting better treatment than many of our actual citizens.



It is time to deter people from illegally coming to, or remaining, in the US. Right off the top of my head, I can think of five places to start:

  • Pull federal funding from sanctuary cities
  • Pull federal funding from colleges and school districts that allow illegal immigrants to attend
  • Fine, heavily, companies that hire illegal immigrants
  • Arrest people for aiding and abetting illegal immigrants
  • Deport illegal immigrants

I know. I’ve heard the Christian argument about taking care of the foreigner, but let me remind you of what else the Bible has to say:

Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. ~Romans 13:1-2 (ESV)

How does one reconcile following the law and taking care of foreigners? Simple. Differentiate between the legal and the illegal. It’s called discernment; another Christian principle.
