I’ve often held the belief, which is often proven to be true, that the Left is chock-full of racists and bigots. That just about everyone in the media focuses on the skin color or gender of a person more-so than the content of that person’s character, at least depending on the political leanings of said person. As a good example, look at the Mississippi Senate race held a couple of days ago, where the Republican candidate, Cindy Hyde-Smith defeated Democrat candidate Mike Espy. Despite the fact that she’s the first woman Mississippi has ever elected to Congress, that fact is ignored because she’s a Republican.
However, that is not the main focus of this article. The point I’m trying to make here is that the Left tends to look at someone’s skin-deep characteristics and nothing beyond that. They do this so often, that it appears as though it’s become second-nature to the Left to be racist. What do I mean?
A study from a couple of researchers from Yale and Princeton found that “over a 25-year-period, white Democratic political candidates patronized minorities by dumbing down their language so as to appear more approachable,” according to the Daily Wire.
The researchers analyzed words used in over 70 speeches delivered by both Democrats and Republicans over a 25-year-period, with around half of the speeches being delivered to mostly minority audiences, and being compared to speeches delivered to mostly white audiences. According to the Daily Wire: “two elements of the speech were analyzed: words related to competence and words related to warmth.”
“The results showed Democratic candidates used fewer competence-related words speaking to minorities than when speaking to white audiences. Republican candidates did not change their discourse."
The researchers also tested “white participants to see how they would interact with a hypothetical or presumed-real interaction partner. Half of the time, the partner was given a name that ostensibly sounded white, such as ‘Emily’, while the rest of the time the partner received a name that sounded like a non-white, such as ‘Lakisha.’ Participants chose from a list of words, all of which had been rated for their warmth or competence, to use to send an email to the partner,” according to the Daily Wire.
The result was that those who skewed to the Left would make sure not to use words that would make them appear to be highly competent, while conservatives would not change their language. Cydney Dupree, one of the researchers, said that “It was kind of an unpleasant surprise to see this subtle but persistent effect. Even if it’s ultimately well-intentioned, it could be seen as patronizing.”
Dupree also said, regarding finding such a pattern of behavior in Democrat politicians, that “It was really surprising to see that for nearly three decades, Democratic presidential candidates have been engaging in this predicted behavior.”
Now, I am not really surprised to see this sort of thing being the case. I have known for a very long time now that the Left is largely racist and bigoted. Regardless of someone’s skin color, they are like this. I don’t think I have to point to each and every instance of hatred that stems from the Left on the basis of skin color, because if I did, I would be here all week. And even though their new favorite target for their incessant need to be openly racist is white people, they still hold true to their old Democrat values of bigotry against minorities.
And this much is clear if, throughout three decades, they’ve been shown to display a particular pattern of speech that differs depending on the type of audience they have. One such instance, though not necessarily regarding race, is when either Hillary or Bill Clinton would hold some speech or rally in a Southern state, such as their home state of Arkansas, and would use a more exaggerated and noticeable southern drawl when speaking to southerners than they otherwise would, say, while in New York or Washington D.C.
Obama was similar, to some extent. Whenever there were more black people with him, he would act more like a black guy than he would otherwise.
So this entire thing comes down partly to racism, but also to an even larger problem with the Left that they would never admit to being a problem: they think they are better than everyone else around them.
Barack Obama often tends to speak and just look at people with his chin really high up and like he’s looking down at someone. He is the prime example of someone who downright looks down on those around him and thinks himself better than everyone else.
It’s because of this largely baseless belief that they are better and smarter than everyone else that they instinctively end up dumbing things down to those whom they believe are inferior to them: minorities.
The reason Kanye West said that there still was slavery going on in the U.S. (paraphrasing, of course) is that black people, through their vote, still largely are slaves to the Left. Slaves of thought. It’s the reason I continue to call the Democrat Party a slave plantation of thought. Because that is largely what they are. Of course, black people are not the only slaves in such a plantation. This plantation includes anyone who does not think for themselves and agrees with the hive mind of the collective Left. There is no data, apart from man-made data, of man-made climate change? “Bull! There is consensus within the scientific community that it’s real, so it has to be!”
Science has long proven that males are male and females are female and there can be no alteration of that, barring some sort of chromosome-level accident? “Bollocks! Gender is fluid and you’re a hater if you say otherwise!” Don’t know why I went British for that one, but let’s continue.
The point is that the Left holds people’s individual thought almost for ransom. And as a result, they end up instinctively holding minorities in a lower regard. I didn’t exactly need a study to know just how racist the Left is, but it is always good to basically confirm such beliefs. The fact that this has been happening for three decades (and likely longer, but the study had to set some sort of limit) tells me the Left’s very racism, bigotry and hatred is on the genetic level.
I’ve said this before, but it’s in their very DNA to be this way. And given the response from one of the researchers, it appears as though she was disheartened to see the results of the study. She even went as far as to say that it was an “unpleasant surprise” to see this behavior. The good news is that she at least was capable of recognizing that this could easily be seen as patronizing behavior (because it is). Though she still tried to insist that it was well-intended, the proof is in the pudding: the Left treats minorities like idiots, while conservatives treat minorities like they would anyone else.
Here’s hoping such a revelation leads to these researchers to understand that there is a deeply-rooted problem within the Left that is not likely to ever change.
