What is the Tunnel Wall?

.........................A timely collection of conservative articles about corrosive liberal influences on politics and culture in America. Once a no-Trumper, the Tunnel Dweller is keenly aware that this most effective President is all that stands between us and our being ruled by those who have contempt for our nation and her history. This is NOT my father's Democrat Party and we must fear it as we once feared the Soviet Union. ......................

Tim Scott deserves better*

*Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) on Capitol Hill, September 30, 2020. (Bonnie Cash/Pool via Reuters) In the eyes of Scott’s Democratic critics, a black Republican is an outrageous anomaly — and fair game for racist abuse.


The hustlers will continue to make a living by casting racism as the irredeemable sin. The radical Left will continue to invoke racism to defame America and erode the bonds that unite us as Americans. Yet it is a fact that we have solved racism as a systemic problem in our country. Racism is a human attribute. We can and should discourage it, but racism can no more be wholly eradicated than other forms of hatred and stupidity. There will always be individual racists. But as a society, we have made racism an attitude worthy of ostracism, any manifestation of which is condemnable, and many of which are legally actionable. Systemically, we can’t do more than that.

 Barack Obama, Race, and Revolution  . . . "However, true to his Marxist upbringing and indoctrination in Critical Race Theory, he created and exploited racial tension for political objectives and monetary gain for him and his fellow travelers.

"Barack Obama and virtually all of his black and white collaborators on the left view the African American population as both useful pawns in their insatiable quest for self-aggrandizement, financial benefit and political power, as well as helpless minions to be paraded about and bought off whenever convenient to the overriding political, societal or self-serving cause." . . .

Texas rep calls for Dem official to resign after racist slur about Sen. Tim Scott  . . . “I had hoped that Scott might show some common sense, but it seems clear he is little more than an oreo with no real principles,” Lamar County Democratic Party chair Gary O’Connor wrote in a since-deleted Facebook post, Fox News reported." . . .

'Tim Scott Won the 'Racism' Debate — 'Here's What Biden, Dems Can Learn'  . . . "Similarly, Goodwin noted, “Biden’s continuing refrain of ‘systemic racism’ is fundamentally at odds with his promise to unite the country.”

A reckless charge of racism might silence speech in college dorms, but coming from a president, it’s an intolerable insult to millions of people and fuels growing rancor.

Scott, the only black GOP senator, gracefully sliced and diced Biden’s remarks with a tone of disappointment, lamenting “this feeling that our nation is sliding off its shared foundation.”

He pushed back against the unaffordable price of Biden’s overreach and Democrats’ determination to ram the measures through Congress on party-line votes. . . .
