Consider Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post. A columnist who writes a biweekly column that uniformly praises Democrats and blasts Republicans.  His peevish views exemplify a lifetime of conditioning by Democratic media, and the man reflects that conditioning like few others in the so called mainstream media. 

Robinson's conditioning has made him an apologist for an organization that was responsible for continuing slavery in the South, for forming the Klu Klux Klan, for lynchings, Democratic governors attempted to bar the door to prevent black students from entering universities, and all the rest. And yet, despite all this, 50 years ago black leaders pooled their support into the Democratic Party. We know the result.  Democrats promptly enacted laws that have destroyed the black family, led to criminalization of the community, loss of the will to be educated, allowed immigrants by the millions to come into the country and who took jobs and benefits away from blacks - and all this despite warnings from two studies put together by Daniel Patrick Moynihan on urban planning precisely detailing the consequences of enactment of these very policies. 

How to understand how someone who appears to be reasonably intelligent supporting an organization that has essentially destroyed a large part of the black community?  The answer is conditioning. The Democratic academic and media machine has conditioned people like Robinson into embracing an organization that is bent not on change but on maintaining terrible conditions in the black community, in an effort to ensure continuation of the Party's ability to get votes. I saw this in action in Newark, NJ where the Juvenile Court was like something out of Dickens, in a place where Democrats had been in charge for as long as anyone can remember. Children sans parents sans grandparents being sentenced to the "Youth House" and caught in the maw of the Democratic community destruction machine. 

It's like Alice in Wonderland - the entire country knows exactly what the Democrats are doing to the community, but people in the community can't see it.  It's disheartening to see people like Robinson falling for the lies, the vicious manipulation, and all the rest. People like Robinson participate in the fallacy, then act like automatons responding to their conditioning by pointing fingers at Republicans as the cause of their problems - as if Republicans have had any say in the community for the last 50 years! No wonder the frustration since the real power is in the hands of people who have absolutely no interest in changing anything since under the present conditions Democrats get all the votes. 

In short, the real irony is that change is the last thing Democrats want.

So like a good automaton Robinson participates in the misdirection campaign. Maybe he actually believes what he says, given his lifetime of conditioning.  To those on the outside it appears like insanity - how else to explain it?  It is a measure of the arrogance of the man that he never shows any doubt, he has lost the ability to question the framework underlying his opinions, and that he thinks he can see in the hearts of those who he blames for the destruction of the community, or a substantial part of the community.

I would ask whether anyone could have done a worse job of governing in the community than the Democrats in the last 50 years.  And I would ask why it is that Democrats are never taken to task for it, why no one ever questions what they have done. 

There is a reason for it of course, and for political correctness - it is a device by which Democratic leaders protect themselves from being criticized for their dismal performance. 

So we wait and wait and wring our hands as we watch the black community being destroyed, and can do nothing about it since people like Robinson are there to shout 'racist' when someone points out what's happening. It is truly depressing.
