Ideological Imperialism

Written by Doug Bower

I have learned some new things inrepparttar last two days and thought I would share them with my readers. I am just a simple and humble columnist and op-ed writer. I usually don't try to write about anything too hard. There are your sophisticated writers and then there are your humorous writers like that guy, what's his name, who works forrepparttar 138894 Miami Herald but who is taking a small sabbatical (May he never return—I want his job.) I fall somewhere inrepparttar 138895 middle. Anyway.

New term: Ideological Imperialism. Definition of term:

1.Ideological: Concerned with or suggestive of ideas.

2.Imperialism: A policy of extending your rule over foreign countries or a political orientation that advocates imperial interests.

I cannot say that I have coined this term. I think minds more mighty than my (feeble) own have thought this through and coined this term or phrase.

What got me to thinking about this is that recent business withrepparttar 138896 African-American Ideological Imperialists Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. They got their boxer shorts all twisted into a knot over President Vicente Fox's most innocuous statement about Mexicans doing jobs that even American blacks will not do—referring torepparttar 138897 Mexican migrant worker issue.

Inrepparttar 138898 Mexican mind, in their cultural context, it was an innocuous and harmless statement. I should know because I live in Mexico and am exposed to this daily. Mexican mothers affectionately call their lighter-skinned children Blanquito and their darker-skinned ones Negrito.

Nevertheless, all political correctness hell has broken loose withrepparttar 138899 African-American branch ofrepparttar 138900 American Ideological Imperialists, Jesse and Al, with Warp engines at maximum and PC phasers atrepparttar 138901 ready.

Even as I write these words,repparttar 138902 African-American Imperialist, Lord Jesse Jackson, is in Mexico City giving President Fox and earful of his ideology of what is Politically Correct and what is not as applied to African-Americans. Jackson will not leave this alone.

Sorry would be a start.

Though you cant take back your mistakes, and you cant unravel time, youd think there would be remorse, for such a self serving crime, to send others out to die, to payrepparttar blood price you have decreed, when its purely posturing and posing, all about vanity and greed, to secure a perceived niche in history, glowing downrepparttar 138869 years, isrepparttar 138870 extent of your ambition, isrepparttar 138871 puny limit of your fears, when those you have sent to die, believing implicitly in you, leave relatives behind who see, that nothing you said was true, there is no thought now for those, whose number you dont count,
