White House Proposes Official NEW RACE: 'Middle East/North African'
Obama came into office amid hopes that America’s racial divisions would become a thing of the past. Instead of healing them, however, Obama has exacerbated them.
Now he is going even further: one of the lasting legacies of his disastrous administration may be the creation of an entirely new “race.”
USA Today reports:
[T]he White House is putting forward a proposal to add a new racial category for people from the Middle East and North Africa under what would be the biggest realignment of federal racial definitions in decades.
If approved, the new designation could appear on census forms in 2020 and could have far-reaching implications for racial identity, anti-discrimination laws and health research.
This new Middle Eastern/North African designation -- “MENA” -- is being created for the benefit of Muslim Arabs. However, MENA would include Middle Eastern and North African Christians and other non-Muslims, and would exclude Muslims who aren’t Middle Eastern and North African.
It is unclear whether Israeli Jews would be able to claim the MENA race. Certainly, the designation is not being created for their benefit.
For years, those of us who have dared to note how Islamic jihadis invoke the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and to recruit peaceful Muslims have been accused of “racism.” This Big Lie has been repeated incessantly, without any breaking of ranks among the bought-and-paid-for mainstream media. In response, I have repeated more times than I could possibly recall:
What “race” is the jihad mass murder of innocent civilians?
I’ve pointed out just as often that Muslims who believe their god commands them to wage war against, and to subjugate, those who don’t believe as they do come in all races. And that race has nothing to do with their imperatives.
These simple truths have not stopped the charges of “racism,” of course. Those charges have George Soros millions behind them, and a seemingly endless supply of well-paid Leftist and Islamic supremacist operatives eager to repeat them.
But perhaps the difficulty of sustaining this irrational charge over the long-term has caused some concern to this propagandist cabal, as this new Obama initiative would supposedly give that propaganda a better footing.
