Louisiana Democrat Party Chair: opposition to Obamacare due to racism

31 May

 

Playing the one card that she and her fellow Democrats have in their deck, LA Democrat Party Chair Karen Carter Peterson took to the floor and claimed that those who oppose Obamacare do so because they are racists.

 

It’s people like Karen Carter Peterson, and other Democrats, that make actual instances of racism be taken less seriously.  Also, I wonder what her explanation is for why white Republicans oppose white Democrats like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton?

Chris Matthews: interest in Obama’s multiple scandals due to racism and white supremacy

15 May

 

Well, I have not heard this excuse in at least ten minutes.  Racism…that has to be it…why else would anyone care that the President, his administration and the IRS are involved in multiple scandals, involving intimidation, harassment, cover-ups, and deaths?  Has to be because of racism.

 

The problem is there are people in this country, maybe ten percent, I don’t know what the number, maybe twenty percent on a bad day, who want this president to have an asterisk next to his name in the history books, that he really wasn’t president. … They want to be able to say, well, he didn’t really have that batting average; he really wasn’t the first African American president; he really didn’t do health care; he really didn’t kill bin Laden. There’s an asterisk, and they have been fighting for that, the people like Donald Trump, since day one. They can’t stand the idea that he’s president, and a piece of it is racism. Not that somebody in one racial group doesn’t like somebody in another racial group, so what? It’s the sense that the white race must rule, that’s what racism is, and they can’t stand the idea that a man who’s not white is president. That is real, that sense of racial superiority and rule is in the hearts of some people in this country. Not all conservatives, not even all right-wingers, but it always comes through with this birther crap and these other references and somehow trying to erase ObamaCare, erase his record in history, and a big part of it is bought into by people like John Boehner, who’s not a bad guy, but he knows the only way he can talk to the hard right is talk their language.

I really wonder sometimes if people like Chris Matthews actually believe this nonsense or does he just know his role and what is expected of him if he wants to have a show on MSNBC?

 

 

Former NAACP chair: it’s cool for IRS to harass Tea Party because they are “admittedly racist” and are the “Taliban wing of American politics”

14 May

 

Tolerance, NAACP style:

 

 

“Admittedly racist”?  I must have missed that admission.  More like falsely accused of being racist for opposing a President (who happens to be black) with whom they fundamentally disagree (you know, kind of like how people like former NAACP Chairma Julian Bond disagreed vehemently with President Bush for 8 years).  Question: were the Republicans who opposed Bill Clinton racists?  How about those that oppose Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and other white Democrats?  Racists too?

Just watch what happens if Hillary Clinton is the nominee for the Democrat Party in 2016 (or any other white Democrat).  She will be just as opposed as Obama ever was.

But, the reality is, Julian Bond knows this isn’t true.  He probably just gets a kick out of calling people racists (plus he knows that he can get away with saying it).

What an embarrassment.

 

 

 

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas: Obama ‘Approved By The Elites’ Because He Says What They ‘Expect From A Black Person’

3 May

 

 

From FOX Nation:

Q: Did you ever expect to see an African American president during your lifetime?

THOMAS: Oh yeah, I guess I’ve always thought there would be black coaches, heads of universities — maybe again as I said I’m naïve but the thing I always knew is that it would have to be a black president who was approved by the elites and the media because anybody that they didn’t agree with, they would take apart.  And that will happen with virtually — you pick your person, any black person who says something that is not the prescribed things that they expect from a black person will be picked apart.  You can pick anybody, don’t pick me, pick anyone who has decided not to go along with it; there’s a price to pay. So, I always assumed it would be somebody the media had to agree with.

Obama Housing Nominee: “Majority of White Voters” Would Never Vote for a Black Candidate, Should be Excluded from the ‘Democratic Process’

2 May

 

From The Daily Caller:

President Obama’s pick to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency once said that a “majority of white voters” would never vote for a black candidate and that they should be excluded from “the democratic process.”

The White House announced Wednesday that Obama will nominate Democratic North Carolina Congressman Mel Watt to take over the FHFA, which regulates Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the country’s government sponsored mortgage companies.

Watt, the former chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, has in the past accused white Americans of racism.

“There would be a substantial majority of white voters who would say that under no circumstances would they vote for an African American candidate,” Watt said Oct. 14, 2005 during a Washington hearing held by the National Commission on the Voting Rights Act.

The Voting Rights Act should be expanded to “adjust districts to take [racially motivated voting] into account,” Watts said.

Such voters “need to be factored out of the equation,” Watt said, because “I’ve got no use for them in the democratic process.”

I’m beginning to notice a pattern here.

Shockingly, no Democrat media outlets mentioned any of this in their reporting of this nomination:

LA Times – no mention

Yahoo News – no mention

U.S. News and World Report – no mention

 

Seems to be another pattern.

 

 

Democrat State Rep: “You’re carrying the water for the Mexican on the fourth floor”

16 Dec

 

A Democrat legislator in New Mexico, House Majority Whip Sheryl Williams Stapleton, allegedly refers to GOP Governor Susana Martinez as:

“the Mexican on the fourth floor”

In her defense, she:

acknowledged confronting Espinoza on the integrity issue, then making the remark about the governor, but she said she did not mean it in a derogatory way or as an ethnic slur.

Oh, good!  Whew!  I’m sure glad to hear that she didn’t mean it in a derogatory way or as an ethnic slur.

Can you imagine if a Republican had said this?  This would be breaking news on every single Democrat Media channel and front page news on all the Democrat newspapers (NY Times, LA Times, Boston Globe, etc.).  They would make sure that everyone, particularly Latinos, knew that a Republican referred to a sitting female governor as “the Mexican on the fourth floor.”  We would hear pundit after pundit asking what this means for Republicans going into the elections next year.  Will this further alienate Latinos from Republicans?  Will this send the Latinos running to Obama and the Democrats?

But since it was a Democrat who said it, you probably won’t ever hear about it other than reading this.

Why is it ok for white liberals to denigrate black people?

11 Oct

 

Of course, the more accurate title would be “Why is it ok for white liberals to denigrate black Conservatives?”

If you have seen the interview between the admitted socialist MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell and Herman Cain, you are probably asking yourself the same question.  Why do white liberals get to insult Conservative blacks?  Why do they get to question their commitment to the civil rights movement?  Why do they get away with insinuating that they are not really black?

This is just another glaring example of how liberals are the most intolerant people in our country.  They’d love for us all to believe that they are the ones that are color blind.  But every chance they get, they prove otherwise.  How is it that a white liberal gets to question Herman Cain’s blackness because he did not participate in the marches during the civil rights movement?

I’d like to see Lawrence O’Donnell’s reaction if a white Conservative tried to smear a liberal black running for president.

 

 

Conservative Black Chick was not impressed either:

“But it also demonstrates how completely panicked, flustered and shocked Democrats are by Cain’s candidacy because they know Cain has the REAL ability to chip away at the 96% black vote Obama enjoyed in 2008. Black support for the first black president has plummeted from 83% to 58% and even if Cain doesn’t win the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, he’s making black liberals reconsider their support of the Democrat party that dismisses them, makes promises of government salvation it doesn’t deliver on and takes their vote for granted every election cycle.

No other race but the black race gives the majority of their votes to one political party. Even if Herman Cain’s candidacy is able to compel a mere 13% of black liberals to vote for the GOP nominee in 2012 this would hurt Obama. Terrified by the reality Cain’s message is resonating with black liberals, O’Donnell tried to interrogate Cain on his involvement in the Civil Rights Movement, implying that because Cain was in college at the time he“sat on the sidelines” and was a sell out.

It’s absurd to suggest if a black person in the 60’s didn’t march in Civil Rights protests they were not supportive of the movement. Cain delivered the right response: “Did you expect every black student at every black college in America to be out there in the middle of every fight? The answer is no. So for you to say why was I sitting on the sidelines, I think that was an inaccurate deduction that you are trying to make. You didn’t know Lawrence what I was doing with the rest of my life.”
