The Democrats are seeking to regain political traction after their historic losses in the recent midterm elections. Two memes are becoming obvious.
One meme is that, omigod, the CIA tortured Islamic terrorists during the Bush Administration. They fed Ensure to one poor wretch, whose only crime was that he masterminded the 9/11 attacks on New York and the Pentagon. What horrible torture! Oh yes, they even waterboarded him and two others. Shame, shame!
Today they are having congressional hearings about these terrible crimes. Diane Feinstein is faking outrage at such inhospitable treatment of these poor genocidal terrorists.
What's the purpose of this meme? To sow shame among Americans and indirectly slam Republicans, since Bush was in power when these horrible sins happened. Feinstein and Co aren't seeking to apologize to the world for Americans in general, they are seeking to apologize for Republican rule.
The other meme is that blacks are being slaughtered in the streets by racist white cops. This meme is not only false, it is destructive of social peace, and may help to incite the race war some have warned about. The latest example is that of idiots wearing T-Shirts that read "I Can't Breathe," referencing the death of Eric Garner who died after being put in a chokehold by police. Garner's death was tragic, and may have been the result of police error or even incompetence, but it certainly wasn't racially motivated in any way.
Some radical black leaders have promised massive demonstrations all across the US to protest this mythical racism. If they can make a pretense of civil unrest, they may scare the public into restoring the Democrat Socialists to power.
The real reason for this new "racist" meme is simple: to keep blacks on the Democrat plantation, which has been increasingly difficult as many realize that Obama's presidency has hurt them badly.
