“Segments of populations under chronic siege commonly embrace the indictments of the besiegers, however bigoted and outrageous. They hope that by doing so and reforming accordingly they can assuage the hostility of their tormenters and win relief.” – Dr. Kenneth Levin, The Oslo Syndrome
What happens when people become intimidated and frightened by terrorism? Might some of them side with the terrorists? These were two questions posed by David Kupelian, author of How Evil Works: Understanding and Overcoming the Destructive Forces That Are Transforming America.
In August of 1973, a bank robbery in Sweden opened the door to a phenomenon that is faced by many in the law enforcement community. During a hostage situation that lasted for more than five days, the captives, consisting of three women and one man, were bound, gagged and terrorized. Yet, strangely, while they were going through this hell, the hostages developed a strong bond and an emotional attachment with their attackers. This phenomenon of captives bonding emotionally with their captors is called the “Stockholm Syndrome.”
According to Kupelian, clinical characteristics of “Stockholm Syndrome” include the following:
o captives start to identify with their captors
o captives realize that rescue attempts are dangerous and could result in their being hurt or killed
o long-term captivity fosters an emotional attachment to the captor as the victim learns of the captor’s problems
Under what circumstances would Jews support the Nazi party? How about Israel supporting Hamas? Before you scoff, according to Kupelian, Israel is exhibiting signs of "Stockholm Syndrome" in its appeasement with radical terrorism in the name of peace.
you following me?
In the 1960s, almost a century after emancipation, Americans of African descent, over the span of two election cycles, inexplicably gave their allegiance in the form of suffrage... to the Democrat party, the very party that exclusively persecuted them for 70 years prior (Ku Klux Klan, separate but equal, Jim Crow laws, nightriders, lynchings, beatings, poll tax, voter intimidation, dogs, riots, burnings, church bombings, and fire hoses… democrats).
For years I’ve been trying to understand why Americans of African descent abandoned their rich history in the Republican party -- a party that was formed in their defense, that they embraced once emancipated, that helped elect America’s first black Congressmen and Senators, that championed almost every piece of civil rights legislation in this country -- in exchange for the party that persecuted, terrorized, killed and tortured their parents, grand parents and ancestors for generations, and is a millstone around their necks today.
I think I am starting to understand.
Americans of African descent are suffering from “Democrat Stockholm Syndrome.” After a century of being beaten, battered and terrorized by Democrats, Dixiecrats, and the like, southern Americans of African descent were tired and worn down. Today, evidence of “Democrat Stockholm Syndrome” is obvious as black Americans have ultimately come to identify with and believe in their tormentors’ cause… the disenfranchisement of the black race -- illustrated by the alarming rate at which we kill our own unborn babies through legalized abortion (the first black President of the United States even supports Planned Parenthood, a terrorist arm of the Democrat party), to the degree of satisfaction with American of African descent children being warehoused in dilapidated underperforming and often violent public schools run by Democrats...
My, how things haven’t changed!
Over the decades, Democrats have gone from being pro-slavery, pro-segregation and pro-eugenics, to being pro-choice for abortion, anti-choice for education and anti-business... different day, same party.
Americans of African descent were once a proud people with self-esteem, moral conviction and an abiding faith in God – even while in physical bondage. Today, Americans of African descent are doing a better job of destroying and denigrating their own, than old school, racist, KKK Democrats did to the black Republicans of their day.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid can refer to Barack Obama as a “light-skinned” African American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,” in the shadow of Robert Byrd and still have the President, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the whole congressional black caucus forgive and support him in his bid to get re-elected. I'm all about forgiveness, but let us remember that a few years back Trent Lot lost his position as Majority Leader and was almost destroyed for uttering a birthday wish to an old segregationist who made the fatal mistake of repenting of his racism and switching his allegiance to the Republican party.
Same Democrat party. Same destructive mindset. Same paralyzing practices.
The only difference is that now Americans of African descent actually identify with, believe in, and support their tormentors’ cause. They even use the same racially hate-filled epithets that former slave owners used when excoriating their newly freed black Republican nemeses (You should read my hate mail!).
Blacks today are bonded to Democrats and their dependence on liberalism has marginalized the race.
There are, however, still black Republican voices crying out in the wilderness in defense of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. What has changed is the color of their opposition.
To be black and a Democrat should make just about as much sense as being a Jew and a Nazi.
Which doesn’t make sense.
Blacks’ dependence on Democrats and big government is the new slavery. It’s an abomination.
And this, my friends, is why Americans of African descent vote for Democrats... “Democrat Stockholm Syndrome.”
