You can be pretty certain that whatever the woke left is accusing you of, they’re doing that very thing. AlfonZo Rachel makes this important point, and that we shouldn’t give them a pass on this. He was recently on Bablyon Bee’s weekly podcast saying that conservatives constantly shoot themselves in the foot by letting the hypocritical left go free on their own long history of racism.
AlfonZo Rachel (goes by “Zo”), of Bronze Serpent Media, says that the biggest problem with modern conservatives is that they engage in self-sabotage.
By the way, if you haven’t heard of Zo, you really need to check him out by clicking on link above. He says the biggest weapon that the illiberal left have is the race narrative, and they’re using it to bludgeon conservatives while they get a pass on their own sins.
“An example of what it looks like when conservatives sabotage themselves is, when it come to that narrative and they’re throwing the accusation of systemic racism, white privilege, white supremacy…the defensive response of republican voters in general is that there’s no systemic racism, there’s no white supremacy, there’s no white privilege. Well, the dude in the White House right now is a total example of white privilege…and he’s everything the liberals are supposed to hate. He’s a privileged white old guy, right?”
He goes on to say…
“You see, when conservatives say there’s none of those things, they just wipe the democrat slate clean, and they got nothing to beat them with. Remember, that’s their “death star.” That’s the thing they’re beating America over the head with…. Don’t give the democrats a pass on it. If conservatives deny that there’s white privilege, well, that is the apartheid history of the Democratic Party. That’s who they are, and if you say there’s no white privilege, you just wiped their slate clean.”
AlfonZo Rachel is making a critical point here that we should not miss.
He says the democrats have been able to effectively use our denial of their long history of racism to make republicans out to be the bad guy. It’s their “death star,” as he puts it, and instead of denying their accusation, we should use it against them, because when we look at the Democrat Party, and leftist in particular, we see a long history of racism and authoritarian repression.

Carol Swain, professor of political science and law at Vanderbilt University, shares the following in the video clip, “The inconvenient Truth About the Democratic Party“:
“Since its founding in 1829, the Democratic Party has fought against every major civil rights initiative and has a long history of discrimination.”
She reminds us that it was the Democratic Party that…
- Defended slavery
- Started the Civil War
- Opposed Reconstruction
- Founded the Ku Klux Klan
- Imposed segregation
- Perpetrated lynchings
- Fought against the Civil Rights Acts of the 1950s and 1960s.
Professor Swain goes on to say that the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an anti-slavery party. Conservatives have consistently fought against the democrat slavery policies, like Dred Scott (slaves aren’t citizens, they’re property) and, later, Jim Crow segregation.
She goes on to say the Democratic Party re-established white supremacy in the 20th century with “Black Codes,” creating laws that restricted the ability of blacks to own property and run businesses. And they imposed poll taxes and literacy tests, used to subvert black citizen’s right to vote.
And how was all of this enforced? By terror. (Sound familiar?)
The left usually pushs back on this by insisting that the racists switched parties. But this is simply not true, just another deflection tactic of the left. The story of the two parties switching identities (called “The Southern Strategy,” invented by the leftist academics and journalists in the 1970s) is a myth. In fact, it’s three myths wrapped into one false narrative. Carol Swain debunks these myths in the following video clip.
The truth is, of the 21 Democratic Senators who opposed the 1964 Civil Rights Act, just one became a Republican afterward. Republicans didn’t even hold a majority of Southern congressional seats until 1994.
And it’s not like the left has changed since then. Arguably, the most illiberal and racist policy ever devised by the left comes from the race grifters who promote Critical Race Theory (CRT). CRT is a totally racist invention of the neo-Marxist academics, basing moral virtue on the color of skin you were born with rather than the content of your character.
Again, the left gets a pass because instead of pushing these inconvenient facts back in their face, conservatives attempt to deny that there is systemic racism and white supremacy at all. They do so because they themselves probably aren’t racist.
But, actually, there is systemic racism…and it’s mostly coming from the left!
Derryck Green of Project 21 calls out these hypcritical accusations of the left in the following video clip.
AlfonZo Rachel also says that many black Americans have traded the chains of slavery for the “brain-chains” created through the left’s massive government welfare programs that have devastated the Black family. Black conservative and pastor, Jesse Lee Peterson says, “The democratic plantation really is worse than the plantation I grew up on.”
I’ve personally witnessed the left’s racial hypocrisy myself. I remember conducting a financial seminar at a community college in Connecticut in the 1990s. About half the people attending were people of color. I thought nothing of it, but I’ll never forget what the director (a white liberal) who hired me said, commenting that she was glad so many black people were attending. I thought, why would she even bring this up? It wasn’t her words that struck me in particular, but the condescending way in which she said it. She seemed to be implying that black people aren’t sophisticated enough to be interested in financial matters.
This liberal academic’s impression of black people is what I’ve seen from so many on the left over the years, saying they’re for Black advancement but tacitly treating them like ignorant children incapable of taking care of themselves without their help. That was 20 years ago, but it’s no different today with the left’s argument against voter IDs, because, obviously, people of color are too stupid to get a voter ID or vote like everyone else. This is what I mean about the left’s condescending bigotry. (Of course, their voting law argument is disingenuous for other reasons, too.)
So, don’t let these ivory tower elites project their own “white fragility” guilt issues on to you. Throw this facade, along with their long history of racism, back in their face.
What’s interesting is that I don’t even think that the average liberal even realizes this about themselves or their own political party. At best, their sense of compassion and justice has been maniputed by generations of race hustlers. So, it’s for their benefit that we expose this hypocrisy for them. 🙂
