Mascot Politics

June 24, 2008

Thomas Sowell –

For people on the left, however, blacks are trophies or mascots, and must therefore be put on display. Nowhere is that more true than in politics.

The problem with being a mascot is that you are a symbol of someone else’s significance or virtue. The actual well-being of a mascot is not the point.

“(The federal government) can never be in danger of degenerating

into a monarchy, an oligarchy, an aristocracy,

or any other despotic or oppressive

form so long as there shall remain any virtue

in the body of the People.”

— President George Washington, Feb. 7, 1788
