Oppressive Liberals

I used the term “oppressive liberals” in a comment on a site and I was challenged to name some examples of such “oppression.” Here is my reply.

Let’s see, I’ll start with the oppression of those on welfare here in Memphis. First is our horrendous school system. Not only are many not learning the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic, but they are also not safe. Why not give all parents the FREEDOM to choose the school that their children attend? Competition breeds excellence, but our children are stuck in a school system that has failed them.

Next we have failed them in their neighborhoods. Where is crime the highest? Neighborhoods that our government ~us the taxpayers~ subsidizes. Are you living in one of these high crime neighborhoods? I bet not. Why not? Because you have the FREEDOM to choose elsewhere because of YOUR hard work. The oppressive policies of the left give welfare recipients just enough to keep them in poverty with no incentive to work to get out.

Also, we try to replace the father with a check. Which do you think is better? A child with a father with a job who is taking responsibility for his family or a single mom ~most likely a teenager~ with no emotional or physical support? Men in the black community need to stand-up and take responsibility for their families instead of just being sperm donors; and young women in the black community need to be empowered to see that they are more than just sex objects.

I don’t know about you, but that’s what I would call oppressive.
