Affirmative Action = Pure Racial Preference.
Government programs typically labeled Affirmative Action and / or Equal Opportunity are, in point of fact, programs that give preferential treatment to people based on race, gender or other factors, such as age. I submit that it is not possible to give someone such preferential treatment without simultaneously giving someone else detrimental treatment on exactly the same basis. Detrimental treatment based on race is racism; detrimental treatment based on sex is sexism / Chauvinism; etc.
Here’s how I described it on the Marxism of Obama page:
Now, proponents of these programs often come before the cameras and howl about how their particular “equal opportunity” program is not quota-based and does not include anything to do with any quota. Of course, that’s a lie. How do you even begin to determine if any “opportunity” is “equal” if you don’t even count anything? How do you know you even need such a program? How do you know if or when you have achieved the goal or the purpose of the program?
Indeed, exactly what is the goal and / or purpose of the program, if no people are to be counted, and there are no quotas?
Affirmative Action is a movement that has become (or perhaps was from the start) a tool of use to the Left in causing, deepening or magnifying a social dividing line to promote class warfare, or at least class strife and animosity, in an otherwise peaceful population. It does not promote equal treatment before the law. Indeed, what it promotes is quite the opposite of equal treatment.
Pray for a return to good old fashioned American and Constitutional equality before the law.

As evidence that racism today is the reverse of how it is publicly described and legally controlled, consider this:
A New Orleans police officer, speaking of the Trayvon Martin shooting, said “Act like a thug; die like a thug.” And he was fired just for saying that.
The Black Panthers put out a public “Wanted Dead or Alive” poster on George Zimmerman and nobody even says a word.

Wrong; there were many words said about it, all favoring it and all profiling George Zimmerman as a typical white racist murderer, of a helpless little boy. Even while condemning George Zimmerman for “profiling” Trayvon Martin, they very publicly “profiled” George Zimmerman as a white racist murderer.
The SLIMC1 first reported him as being “white” and then rushed to modify the description to “white Hispanic.” Did you ever hear of that term before? “Journalists” falsely reported the case as a “Stand Your Ground” law example, when it had nothing whatsoever to do with that law. They falsely reported that his 911 call referred to Trayvon as an “f***ing coon” for days; then belatedly reported, without apology, that what he said was that it was “f***ing cold” out there. They purposely edited out vast sections of his conversation with the dispatcher on the tape to make him look like a racist. They purposely edited a picture of him to make it look like he had no injuries. They purposely portrayed Trayvon as a “little boy” with pictures of him at age 11 or 12, when the man stood six feet three inches tall. They played it up for all it was worth, in their typical journalistic Marxist zeal to create another crisis to take advantage of.
Black Panthers put a price on his head and call for his kidnapping or murder, and they even call for opening an actual race war. Remember the mass-murderer Charles Manson’s main motive was to start a race war which was to spark the ultimate revolution, which would topple the existing system. This whole thing is like Charles Manson’s race-war dream come true. Spike Lee and Rosanne Barr hurriedly published available Zimmerman addresses in order to enable, co-sponsor, promote, help, aid and abet in the immediate racial murder of George Zimmerman. There have been multiple purely racist rants against Zimmerman even on the floor of Congress, all aimed at stirring up blood lust against George Zimmerman. Everybody seems to be doing everything they can to get George Zimmerman murdered.
So-called Black Leadership, in the persons of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, etc., jumped right in, right on queue. We must remember that, just as the worst of the environmental whackos are Marxists first and environmentalists second, and just as most American journalists put their Marxist ideology way ahead of journalism, black leadership is Marxist first, and black second. Race is just their little area in which to agitate, promote and exaggerate crisis, in a virtual sea of other forms of crisis. That is their particular profession.
Comrade Obama (peace be upon him) made a public statement to fan the racial flames, in which he said that if he had a son, he might look like Trayvon Martin. In the same time frame, typical black thug Shawn Tyson, 16, was convicted of the cold blooded murder of two British tourists in Florida. (I’ll bet you never even heard of this case.) There was no statement from the President that if he had a son, he might look like the murderous thug Shawn Tyson.
In the tape, Zimmerman indicating Trayvon was perhaps approaching him; ”checking me out” was the term he used, followed by ”I don’t know what his deal is.” Is it possible Trayvon wanted to intimidate Zimmerman, because he didn’t like anyone paying attention to him?
Earlier in the tape, Zimmerman said something about how Trayvon looked suspicious to him; could he have been right? Trayvon’s previous school problem with the “empty bag” that once contained pot (and which had once been full,) which was found in his locker was accompanied by a couple of other things. Lady’s jewelry, and a screwdriver. Perhaps you don’t know the significance of the screwdriver.
Once upon a time my wife’s IROC-Z was broken into in an unsuccessful attempt to steal it. I got a call from police, who couldn’t contact my wife – she turns her cell phone off in church – and I raced to the site. She showed up presently and was not harmed. But the criminal(s) had popped out her driver’s side window in such a way that all the glass came outside the car, so when he jumped in he wasn’t sitting in broken glass. Then he utterly destroyed the steering column to get at the ignition. Something spooked him – probably the cop – and he took off and left it like that.
I asked the cop how he did all that, and the answer was – the use of a screwdriver by someone who knew what he was doing. All the burglar needs is a screwdriver, the bigger the better, but it doesn’t have to be huge, to break into your car, to break into anything inside your car, to break into your house, and to break into anything in your house. Forget all the tools in the James Bond movies and in Mission Impossible episodes; all the well trained burglar needs is a big screwdriver. That’s the significance of the screwdriver. It’s a burglar’s tool.
What was that screwdriver doing in Trayvon’s locker along with all that expensive lady’s jewelry? Why did no one, including Trayvon or his family, ever claim the impounded expensive lady’s jewelry? If it wasn’t his, then what, exactly, was it doing there? If it was his, then why didn’t he claim it?
I submit that Zimmerman was almost certainly right in his suspicion. I don’t know what happened in his altercation with Trayvon, but he was a good neighborhood watchman. He was supposed to profile, and Trayvon’s actions probably fit the criminal profile. Not profiling, especially when you are looking for criminals, would be quite stupid. Any and all laws against profiling are stupid, dangerous laws that need to be repealed.
As far as the question of, if Comrade Obama (peace be upon him) had ever had a son, who he might have looked like – well, let’s see …
Comrade President Barack Hussein Obama, peace be upon him.
Trayvon Martin, 17, as he portrayed himself to the public.
Shawn Tyson, 16, convicted double murderer.
George Zimmerman, the so-called "white hispanic."
He might have looked like any one of them.
Comrade Obama is merely following his own long-used rule, invented by Machiavelli, refined by Hegel, perfected by Marx:
never let a good crisis go to waste,
and its corollary,
if you don’t have a good crisis, make one.
All of this is being built up for a purpose. The Obama Regime Attorney General and Dept of Justice has made it clear, in the previous Black Panther voter intimidation example, that they are following orders to not interfere with any race crime so long as the perpetrators are black and the victims are white. This is building to a “long hot summer” of riots and city burnings, and crisis upon crisis.
The Black Panthers, the Nation of Islam, the congregations from “churches” like that of Jeremiah Wright, all hate and despise America, they hate the American Constitution, they hate American history, they hate everything America stands for, and in particular, they hate white American citizens. Don’t just take my word for it, ask them; they’ll tell you. These are Marx’s Useful Idiots in the most literal meaning of the term.
When the Occupy movements start up again this summer they will have a very serious and violent racial component added into the mix. The racial Nazis will join the Occupiers, the revolutionaries, the anarchists, the femi-Nazis, the eco-Nazis, the homo-Nazis, the union thugs, the students and their teachers, various gangsters and the media journalists to turn the Occupy movement into something big; as big as they can possibly make it. The one thing all of these seemingly disparate groups will have in common is that they will all be Democrats.
The worst riots and violence will be at the two big political conventions. The biggest and worst of all will be at the Democrat convention. The reason I say that is that the Democrat convention will have the biggest concentration of Marxists, revolutionaries, anarchists and journalists both inside participating in the convention, and outside demonstrating against it. All Democrats. You can’t expect a convergence of that many angry, hate-filled people all in the same place and not expect some very bad things to happen.
The most serious problem the Democrat officials, including the President, will face is the same one snake handlers have, because community organizing and agitating and promoting revolution is just like increasingly rough snake handling. Once the snake has had enough, he doesn’t care who he bites. Neither does the agitated and angered anarchist.
It’s really the same social problem predictable of cannibals living in a completely closed community.

" Any and all laws against profiling are stupid, dangerous laws that need to be repealed."
Going by that weird logic, Black Panthers are absolutely correct in wanting to "profile" Zimmerman. Zimmerman was not a cop, he was not authorized to "profile" anybody, and he looked for a fight when the 911 caller asked him to back off. Whatever Trayvon's faults were, he did not deserve to be executed, and even if he did, Zimmerman was not the one to do it.
It would make my day, any day, if the Panthers "profiled" Zimmerman if he is let off.

First, let me express my sympathy for your cognitive disability, and recognize that I need to pay special attention to it in our communications here. Black Panthers and all fans and aficionados of Black Panthers are known to share the IQ equivalent of one root of the cranberry plant; so I'm going to type this very slowly in the hope that you will read it very slowly, and take all the time needed to digest each word. You might want to get assistance from someone nearby to help you with any of the big words. Take it slowly, and don't strain yourself; you might take a break once in awhile and go watch MTV or the E-channel, and then come back to this.
First, there is the really tough idea to wrestle with involving how the Black Panthers condemn profiling, and so, they could never, ever use profiling against anyone. Otherwise, how could they continue to condemn profiling?
Second - and this is a real toughy; you may want to take a break first - programs such as affirmative action and equal opportunity could not possibly exist in the absence of profiling. There absolutely has to be some racial profiling going on before anyone even can know that affirmative action or equal opportunity is needed. There is a symbiotic relationship between racial profiling and affirmative action; they are interdependent; one cannot exist without the other.Third, I know you think you were there, Matt, but you really were not there. You were not a witness. What you saw was pure propaganda, issued from the SLIMC1 , on TV. I know it seems real, but it was only a typical fraudulent newscast, repeated over and over and over again.
It was the repetition that made you think you saw the whole thing.
Now, that's quite a bit at one time. Take your time and give it a good think. take periodic breaks, and when you think you understand it all, come back and say hi.
Date: Wed Jan 16 00:50:56 2013
Thanks for replying promptly and also for your deep understanding of my cognitive disability. Had it for a long time now, *sigh*. I guess that is one of the main reasons I could never attain such exalted positions like truck drivers or right-wing wingnuts. Now that we have both completed our own sets of ad hominem attacks, let us look at the facts.
1. Black Panthers would be a deeply immoral organization in any place except a fundamentally racist America. All the lynchings and racism in the South is part of history, just look it up. There are plenty of crazies still out there as well. Just go to "Stormfront", a website run by a tea party leader. While racist parties like the Tea Party is on the rise, unilateral disarmament is not and should not be an option.
2. Yep, as you said I am not a witness, but then neither are you. You did not know Martin, you had no idea what kind of person Martin was, and yet you were ready to jump to conclusions based on your screwdriver and jewellery bullshit. Guess we both fall prey to SLIMC, but of different strains.

From: Vic Biorseth
I understand; it is commonplace for Marxists, welfare queens, common criminals and low information voters to look down their noses at any form of honest work, for honest work is beneath their exalted position in the world.
The statement that America is fundamentally racist is a lie; you just made that up. The fact that there is a black sheep in the flock does not make the whole flock black. You lack the foggiest clue as to what the Tea Party is; you are lost in the indoctrinated, propagandized world of the low information voters.There is only one strain of the SLIMC1 , and it is Marxist and anti-Constitutional. Obamunist, in other words.

From: Vic Biorseth
I heard something interesting all over Talk Radio today, about the third episode of the History Channel's The Bible series, which we watched and thoroughly enjoyed on Sunday. But Rush, Sean, etc., talked about a similarity we had not picked up on. Apparently, it's all over Drudge and the internet. The series producers took great pains to not use recognizable or famous actors in the series, so that the vitally important content would not be overshadowed by any famous personalities. However, what Drudge and others were stunned by was a similarity between the actor who played Satan, and our own Comrade Obama, peace be upon him. So, when I got home, I took a look at the pictures on Drudge, and I really have to agree, although I didn't see it at first. Let's see what you think.
It brought this particular webpage immediately to mind.
I remembered the dialogue above, regarding if Obama had a son, what that son might look like. And it brought to mind a new question:
If Satan had a son, might he look like Obama?

Surely you recognize the official national racism that held blacks back until recent history. Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity are merely programs to correct that historically unequal treatment.
Date: Sat May 10 2014
From: Vic Biorseth
No, I reject outright your assertion of "official national racism" in America. What you are referring to is the historical racism of the Democrat Party, which I nowadays refer to as the Marxocrat Party. The whole nation was never racist. Look what the Democrat Party stood for from its very birth:
The losing Party of the Civil War, who gave birth and sustenance to the KKK, who historically oppressed blacks, who lost the moral fight against MLK, have morphed into today's Marxocrat Party pretending to champion blacks and all other minorities against the historical Party of Lincoln and MLK, which they falsely claim is and was racist. But it is they, the Marxocrats, who are racist, not America as a whole. America never was racist, and whites were never any more racist than anyone else.
"Affirmative Action" and "Equal Opportunity" programs, laws and regulations are precisely and exactly opposite of what they claim to be. They are government imposed programs of the worst forms of racial profiling and racial discrimination, aiming at racial exclusion, promoting preferential and detrimental treatment that is exclusively racial in nature. There is nothing equal about them. They openly oppose equality, even while using the word in their name.
Date: Wed May 14 22:00:29 2014
Does this mean, Vic, that you would favor legalized racial discrimination everywhere, including the work place?
Date: Thu May 15 2014
From: Vic Biorseth
Yes. I would favor all forms of legalized discrimination, everywhere. Discrimination never should have been made illegal, whether racial, sexual, religious or whatever. Freedom of association is a natural right. Freedom of assembly is a Constitutionally protected legal right, right out of the First Amendment.
Black Panthers should be perfectly free to restrict membership to black people only. A black businessman should be able to restrict employment to black workers, if he wishes. It is, after all, his business. The same can be said of a Jew, or a Baptist, or a Catholic, or an atheist. No one should be required, against his will, to employ any form of scandalous sinner, or person whose behavior opposes the norms and social standards of the employer.
Exhibiting preference for the close company of like minded or like appearing people is not racist; it is simply normal.
If it had not been for the racial animosity and pure racism that was increasingly sponsored, through politics, through law and through terrorism, by the Democrat Party throughout its history, purely racial discrimination never would have advanced to where it advanced in America.
If it had not been for the creation and growing of all of our unconstitutional giant regulating bureaucracies, the restricting of the free market and the restricting of individual citizen liberty, all similarly sponsored by the Marxocrat Party, there would be untold millions more of filled and open jobs available to anyone who wanted them, and most of them would just naturally be open to any race or denomination.
Marxists create or co-opt every social problem in order to politically "solve" them via increasing government and increasing centralized political power, so that the centralized power may one day be more easily seized by someone ruthless enough to seize it. The ultimate goal is, after all, Marxist dictatorship, of one form or another.
