Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby was recently found not guilty in the shooting death of Terrence Crutcher. The shooting represented another in a long line of national incidents where an unarmed black man was shot and killed by a white police officer. In many instances, these shootings lead to cries of racism and widespread violence by protest groups like Black Lives Matter. Luckily for the residents of Tulsa, these type of protests never gain any real momentum. It seems that the shooting of Crutcher was justified in the sense that he was acting in an erratic and non-compliant manner. He had a known history of drug abuse as well as a criminal record. While this does not justify the immediate shooting of the man there are some hard questions that are not being asked and in order to ever find true justice, they must be explored. One of these questions is of course, who is to blame for his death? The left will continue to blame the so-called institutional racism of the United States and its institutions as the cause of all these unfortunate events. Sadly, the truth is far different and the blood of Terrence Crutcher, as well as other innocent people, actually falls into the hands of the liberal left.
For decades now the left has pushed the destructive narrative that blacks in America are oppressed and white people live privileged lives. Academic theories such as Black Liberation Theology, Critical Race Theory and White Privilege education have diluted the minds of American students by teaching them that the system they live in is inherently racist and designed only to benefit the selfish, greedy interests of white men. Blacks are taught that they are incapable of racism because they have no institutional power. In other words, because the institutions of power are allegedly controlled by whites, blacks have no power to discriminate against others. The purpose of these educational theories is to create a counter-hegemony against the dominant social group and it is communist in origin. Italian communist Antonio Gramsci devised the theory of counter-hegemony because he realized that Marx’s idea of an armed struggle between the economic classes didn’t materialize. Gramsci instead posited the idea that different groups of oppressed people could be created on the basis of gender, criminal status and race. These groups could then be used and pitted against the dominant culture to create a revolutionary mindset.
It has worked perfectly, our nation is now divided into so many different social groups claiming to be oppressed by “white privilege.” In truth, however, these people are only being used and it is leading to their own destruction. The idea that blacks are oppressed and the teaching of such nonsense like white privilege has led to a movement based purely on hatred and resentment. The constant rhetoric and demonization of police by former President Barack Hussein Obama led to an all out war on cops where blacks were ambushing and killing police officers for no reason other than being told they are oppressed victims. This war on cops surely contributed to the fear and knee-jerk reactions of officer Betty Shelby when she was facing down a non-compliant man who was in fact, acting in an erratic manner and reaching back into his car.
Ever since the creation of Lyndon Johnsons Great Society programs black people in America have been oppressed. They have been tricked into believing that the government will provide for them through welfare. The results were the destruction of the black family, generational poverty and government dependence. This was done on purpose in order to be able to carry out Gramsci’s plan of counter-hegemony. Anyone who truly understands history knows that Republicans have traditionally voted for civil rights for blacks and Democrats have opposed them. The KKK was the terrorist arm of the Democrat party and it was Democrats who opposed the eradication of slavery. Blacks in America were at one time just as successful and integrated into American society as whites and in many cases had stronger, more successful family lives. This all changed with Johnson’s Great Society welfare programs. This was the creation of the perfect revolutionary army to bring about socialism in America.
Manning R. Johnson, author of the book Color, Communism and Common Sense was a black member of the Communist Party USA. He was highly trained in subversive techniques and worked his way as high as being a member of the Politburo. He defected from the Communist Party when realizing the black community in America was being used to carry out a communist agenda. He writes in the book that the grievances of the black community such as slavery and discrimination, were to be exploited and used as a weapon against the capitalist system to bring about socialism.
“Little did I realize until I was deeply enmeshed in the Red Conspiracy, that just and seeming grievances are exploited to transform idealism into a cold and ruthless weapon against the capitalist system — that this is the end toward which all the communist
efforts among Negroes are directed.”
