This week on Twitter, we witnessed a firestorm of tweets between based Black Conservatives and mainstream White Conservatives. More specifically, the fued between Maj Toure and Matt Walsh sparked major conversations related to race, history, and current events.
The discussions began with a tweet Walsh wrote, describing European enslavement in Africa. His reactionary response, like all responses from Conservatives, was to demystify the Left's ongoing onslaught against White men today, which suggests White people are the only oppressors.
Walsh's take, of course, fell short because too often, whenever Black Americans address chattel slavery in America, Conservatives pull out their "whataboutism" cards.
"Well, what about slavery in Africa? Well, what about Black-on-Black crime? Well, what about ... yada yada yada?"
In response to Matt's tweet, Maj Toure, Founder of Black Guns Matter and friend to the Conscious Conservative Movement, hit back with a nuanced tweet. He told Matt, like he does with many other famous Conservative pundits, that such take on Black History is the reason why Conservatives cannot make inroads with Black voters.
And Maj is right.
Each time Black voters express disdain with the government, prominent Conservative pundits always feel the need to insert their "oppression" into the discourse. If they aren't doing that, then they are pointing to a completely different issue, attempting to negate the exact problem Black folks are addressing in that moment.
When men go toe-to-toe in the political streets, I often keep silent about the matter. We all know Maj needs no help standing on his principles and engaging intellectually on the battlefield of ideas.
But I did add this response to Beloveds in Twitter Class, because I wanted them to understand the motives behind Matt's tweets and that of other White Conservative pundits.
Right now, Progressives have launched an all-out war on White men, particularly White Republican men. This tactic is not new, because Black Americans witnessed this same machine target Black men with racist, stereotypical messaging to disenfranchise their voice.
Progressive media via the news outlets, entertainment, and even education have made White men the enemy.
And right now, White Conservative pundits are seemingly "whining" about this mistreatment and expecting folks to empathize with them.
Funny how the tables turned so quickly after 2020.
I have taught Conservatives repeatedly, "When you celebrate the violation of rights for one ethnic group, you can expect your rights to be violated next. It is the inevitable consequence of sowing disdain for Black Americans and their grievances. It is the Law of Sowing and Reaping, and it's ALWAYS in effect."
For years, I urged Conservatives, especially the men, to build the Alliance with Black men, because Progressivism has specifically made them both targets of its disdain. One Alliance between these voting blocs, and we can swiftly see Progressivism uprooted from our institutions and communities.
But despite this ongoing encouragement, Conservative pundits, who follow my Twitter Class and know EXACTLY the message I have preached, REFUSE to make these inroads because it's not profitable for them.
You see, the Alliance is a solution.
And complaints are most profitable when solutions are absent.
Forget the fact that you as Conservatives will continue getting battered in these political streets. That does not matter to the think tankers and their talking point prophets.
The bag is their god, and you are the pawns on their chess board.
For this reason, I have presented you with a new chess board and continue teaching you how to play effectively and win on the basis of practicing Kingdom principles.
Without question, we have an opportunity before us to make inroads with Black Americans, who are increasingly disgruntled with the Democrat Party. But that Alliance will not take place as long as your prominent Conservative pundits speak on your behalf. This Alliance will not occur as long as Black voters are told to disassociate from their Black History and Black Culture to receive your acceptance. This Alliance will not happen if your prominent leaders continue negating the effects Progressive government left in their communities.
It is completely foolish to stand in the way of fellow Americans who are DEMANDING their government do right by them.
And regardless if you have not experienced the same government oppression as them, you as a Conservative are bound by your principles to unite with other Americans to ensure all Constitutional rights are afforded to every citizen.
When the government enacts laws and policies that specifically harm groups on the basis of de facto or de jure racism, you must be present to fight with them!
As you show up on their battlefield to help them win against Progressivism, they will show up for you during your time of need!
I cannot stress this point enough: White Conservative men need Black men right now. Your pundits lack the intellectual prowess to defeat Progressivism, especially when it comes to race.
The enemy is not fellow Americans.
The enemy is Progressivism, which has no problem finding a new target to crush under the weight of its Colored Communism.
This is the message I will continue preaching within the Conscious Conservative Movement. And I urge you to take this message to others who are ready to build.
This is how we win. The time is now.
If this lesson blessed you, contribute towards our ongoing work with a $25+ donation towards the Movement. We are taking the Conscious Conservative message to Black communities nationwide with your help and support.
And as always, let's grow together!
