”Racism is a doctrine of, by and for brutes. It is a barnyard or stock-farm version of collectivism, appropriate to a mentality that differentiates between various breeds of animals, but not between animals and men.
Like every form of determinism, racism invalidates the specific attribute which distinguishes man from all other living species: his rational faculty. Racism negates two aspects of man’s life: reason and choice, or mind and morality, replacing them with chemical predestination.”
“A genius is a genius, regardless of the number of morons who belong to the same race and a moron is a moron, regardless of the number of geniuses who share
his racial origin.”
“Like every other form of collectivism, racism is a quest for the unearned. It is a quest for automatic knowledge—for an automatic evaluation of men’s characters that bypasses the responsibility of exercising rational or moral judgment—and, above all, a quest for an automatic self-esteem (or pseudo-self-esteem).”
Racism The Virtue of Selfishness
RRD: To this I would add that the word “racism” as it is used by the left today merely means any opposition to the left’s policies for any reason. If it meant anything even tangentially connected to the word’s actual meaning ” bias against someone or a group because of their race” than Bill Clinton who rationalized Robert Byrd’s joining the Klan & Harry Reid who said that Obama didn’t have a “negro accent” & Biden who said that Barack Obama was “bright, articulate & clean” would be excoriated & shunned. Instead these statements are brushed aside. Why? Because “racism” is merely a sound uttered by leftists to get their enemies off-message. Call them out as the liars they are.
