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?

 

 

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.

 

 

Congressional Black Caucus Not a Fan of the Tea Party

31 Aug

 

The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) is officially a joke.  They are desperate and pathetic.  People who stoop to this level are admitting that they have lost the debate.   Furthermore, what they are doing is dangerous and they know it.  And where is Mr. Civility?  Hmmm?  If Obama disagreed with what the CBC was saying or if he wanted them to tone it down, he would give another national speech condemning this kind of language and call for everyone to stop this nonsense.  But he hasn’t said a word, nor will he.  Obama knows as much as the CBC does that he’s in big trouble politically.  Support for him is dropping, big time.  So, Democrats, led by the CBC and quietly encouraged by Obama, plan to call millions of Americans, who want to put a stop to this out-of-control spending taking place in Washington D.C., racists from now until the elections next year.

Let me ask a question.  We hear all the time about the crazies in the Tea Party, but I ask you, which group sounds crazier?

A.  Tea Party – who wants to reduce out-of-control government spending, reduce our national debt and federal budget deficit and lower taxes.

B.  Congressional Black Caucus – who thinks the Tea Party wants to do all of these things simply because a black man is President.  The CBC also claims that Republican members of Congress see black people as “second class citizens” and would like to see them “hanging on a tree.”  They’ve even thrown in some Jim Crow comparisons for good measure.

So, let’s see here.  One group sees the trillions of dollars in national debt, an ever-growing entitlement system and a federal government that seems only interested in kicking the can down the road, and wants to put a stop to it.  The other group could care less about our debt, deficit spending, unsustainable entitlements, unemployment, struggling economy or the impact it will have on generations of our children.

Who are the crazy ones here?

It really is amazing if you think about it.  Every single thing is the opposite of what the CBC says.  The CBC says that the Tea Party is mean, intolerant, evil, vitriolic, racists, etc.  No group in our country is as mean, nasty, hateful and intolerant as liberals.  NONE.  They want children indoctrinated from grade school through college.  They attack anyone who holds an opposing view.  They lie about naturally occurring climate in an attempt to force us to drive the kind of cars they want us to drive, eat what they want us to eat and use the lightbulbs they approve of.  Yet, somehow think they have a leg to stand on to criticize the Tea Party.

Congressional Black Caucus, stay classy!

Opponents of Illegal Immigration = White Supremacists

25 Mar

I thought for sure this was a joke when I heard about it.  Not so much. Desmoinesregister.com has the story (emphasis mine):

Foes of illegal immigration are up in arms over plans for a weekend disaster exercise in western Iowa with a fictitious scenario in which young white supremacists shoot dozens of people amid rising tensions involving racial minorities and illegal immigrants….

The exercise scenario describes shootings occurring after rising tensions in the community because of an influx of minorities, Reed said. The newcomers, some who are American citizens and some who are illegal immigrants, were to have moved into a rural area from urban areas in search of more-affordable living. The newcomers are not welcomed by racial extremists, and controversy sweeps the community, he said.

One of the fictional suspects involved in the shootings is described an 18-year-old white male with a quick-tempered father who is a firearms enthusiast with ties to an underground white supremacy group. A second fictional suspect is described as an isolated 17-year-old white male student who was befriended by the older student and who mimics his new friend….

Reed said the exercise is not intended to be political and shouldn’t’ be interpreted as criticizing gun owners or opponents of illegal immigration.

Now why would anyone interpret this as being political?  Why would anyone think this is being critical of gun owners or opponents of illegal immigration?  I mean, all this is doing is portraying lawful gun owners, who also happen to believe that having a secure border goes hand-in-hand with our nation’s sovereignty, as racists.  Why would anyone have a problem with that?

I’d like to see this group do a fictitious exercise where a group of angry black, Hispanic, Muslim, gay, transgendered, or environmentalist men go on a shooting rampage against a group of Conservatives that move into their small town.  I’d love to see the media reaction to that!

Just for fun, let’s take a look at Mexico’s immigration policy.

Mexico has a single, streamlined law that ensures that foreign visitors and immigrants are:

  • in the country legally;
  • have the means to sustain themselves economically;
  • not destined to be burdens on society;
  • of economic and social benefit to society;
  • of good character and have no criminal records; and
  • contributors to the general well-being of the nation.

The law also ensures that:

  • immigration authorities have a record of each foreign visitor;
  • foreign visitors do not violate their visa status;
  • foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the country’s internal politics;
  • foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses are imprisoned or deported;
  • foreign visitors violating the terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported;
  • those who aid in illegal immigration will be sent to prison.

Glass house, anyone?
