The father of the modern molecules to man evolutionary theory, Charles Darwin, had what we might call a bit of a race problem. In the Descent of Man (Darwin’s not-so-widely-discussed-by-liberals-who-deify-him book), Darwin postulated that Australian aborigines and dark-skinned Africans were actually closer relatives to apes than Caucasians.
If you understand and embrace Darwinian theory, this just has to make sense, no matter how inconvenient it may be for you. Take Darwin’s “Tree of Life.” If we are on the branch of humans, it makes no sense to believe that we are not still in the midst of our evolution. Which means, logically, that some human races are further down the branch (further evolved) than others. This is the inherent racism built into the evolutionary mindset that has provided some of history’s worst genocidal maniacs intellectual justification for their crimes. That’s not saying that Darwinian theory caused the ovens at Auschwitz, but simply that it provided Hitler a moral justification for his massacre. Ditto Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Che, et al.
That inconvenient truth is one that liberals have tried to avoid bringing up, but sometimes they have those classic Freudian slips that reveal what’s going on behind their intellectual curtains. Check this out from a recent edition of Hardball with Chris Matthews. Interviewing Bishop Harry Jackson, a black minister who has spoken out against Barack Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage, look at what Matthews tossed out there:
JACKSON: Why not let the Muslims have polygamy and bigamy?
MATTHEWS: Mr. Bishop, I hope you evolve. Thank you very much. I'm just teasing.
JACKSON: That's all right.

Now, let’s just imagine for a second what would happen if a conservative would have made such a remark to a black guest. The very rules of political correctness that men like Matthews establish for conservatives would be used to destroy that individual. But Matthews gets a pass? I don’t think so.
Chris Matthews’ “teasing” remark would be regarded as highly offensive, and potentially warrant a suspension or termination by his employer if it weren’t for the fact that he’s a white liberal attacking a black conservative (or, in this case, a black man espousing a view in line with conservative orthodoxy). Enough with the double standard.
Either Matthews should be drug onto the carpet and forced to defend his deeply buried racist belief system and the fact that it just spontaneously burst through the blanket he shrouds it in, or he needs to be reprimanded for his knee-jerk tendency to label all of his political enemies as racists for far less incriminating statements and remarks.
