in response to reader comment: Sanders avoids radical-left use of 'apartheid slur' contributing to racist bloody attacks

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), May 24, 2021 at 20:06

American politics is in a very precarious political position when considering racially motivated attempts of governance, since, while racism is very cautiously called 'systemic' (it is a world wide phenomena-it knows no international limits nor is restrained by boundaries), it is a unique term that as many will try to argue, should not be allowed in America. Much less in the term 'apartheid,' we read and hear of the aggressive attempts of one end of the political spectrum to the other to label the other end 'racist.' Can it be said that leftist elitism is racist when they employ the term 'apartheid?'
Hello! The spectrum has all colors in it; in the euphemisms of ethnic descriptives by color, there is no one human physical characteristic of appearance that is technically superior to another. Only in deviant pride of self-importance does anyone make such an assertion and think that superiority within the races is cause for the attempts to destroy the others. And yet, the leftist socialist modellings of those characteristics have become ingrained in the modern ambitions of pride in pursuit of political power. The heinous word 'apartheid' has become (actually, has been appropriated) as symbolic of the hatred.
Query: Does anyone really know why everyone must develop hatred, one for another and why, further, it must be attained and maintained at all costs? Worse, yet, who in their right mind would seriously ascribe this to be a characteristic of a creative Deity? Would it not make more sense that a Deity would want loving relationships with His creation rather being in constant state of hateful loathing? A suggestion here would be to assess the motives of causing dissent and divisions that would have no incentive for desiring an eternal state of fellowship.
This religious business of a constant state of emotional warfare to see which version of a deity is more powerful than another is humanly caused. Where did this business of a multiplicity of religious persuasions seeks more like it is intended to destroy the brotherhood of humanity rather than seek a state of peace. Now: where in the world would that destructive mindset come from and why did/does humanity buy into that? There is only one spiritual source by which this can be understood; and it is not fully religious, for it is the only transcendent and supra-human source that humanity did not create.
All of this having been said, and in view of the worldwide propensity for seeking self-destruction because pride seeks after self instead of contentment for all, 'apartheid' becomes the tool for all who have a political problem that they are not willing or ready to surrender for the sake of humanity. The term is applied to all by the perpetrators when those who employ it for political advantage are unwilling to admit they are the worst offenders in seeking their own superiority in the process of subjugation of all to their whims.
The use of the term was insidiously employed to a questionable outcome in the past, so it becomes a model for future acts of defamation in the destruction of societies that do not easily fall for its sinister applications in bad politics. It is perfidious in its intentions and perdition is set for those who employ it.
