The Leftist Mind: Mind and Mindset

Greetings puny Earthlings.

I'd like to toss a high-five to Harry Alford the head of the Black Chamber of Commerce for taking Sen. Barbara "Don't Call Me Ma'am" Boxer to task for her condescending behavior during recent hearing on the Waxman/Markey
Crap & Raid bill.

Alford was there to discuss the study his group commissioned about the effects of the the bill on the economy. Boxer decided to leaven his testimony, which was critical of the bill, by tossing into a record a few resolutions by the NAACP about global warming.

Alford, rightfully so, got pissed and told Boxer that she was insulting him, his group, and the work they do, by tossing in unrelated resolutions. He was there to talk about economics and energy, not about how wonderful a handful of professional lobbyists think the Democrats are.

This shocked and rocked Boxer. She was used to having her ass kissed, and not kicked, and since it was being done by a black man, she was literally gobsmacked. She was expecting Alford to just shut his mouth, roll over and play the obedient servant of his political betters.

Thankfully, Alford doesn't play that way.

He stood up for himself, and refused to play the party line because he had his own mind.

And that's what stunned the already fairly stunned Boxer.

Because a Leftist like Boxer doesn't believe in individual opinions. She just assumed that as an African American, he wouldn't have his own mind, just a
mindset. A mindset predetermined by narratives of victim-hood, and obedience to an ideology that claims to bring them up, while only bringing them down. Alford wasn't there to be a victim, he was there to be an individual, with his own thoughts, ideas, and beliefs, and there wasn't any way that some mindless call for racial unity was going to break that individuality.

So kudos to Harry Alford. A man with a pair of brass ones.

Keep watching the skies, because we're watching you.

It's always great when a white woman lectures a black man about his culture.

Dolt.

I love this guy and what he did to Barb Boxer, but I still want to know why there is a 'black chamber of commerce'. Is the other for whites only?
