While the left assures us that such feelings were left to the distant past, I disagree. Take Senator Robert Byrd from
Senator Joe Biden declared Barak Obama an “Articulate and clean” black man. In fact, his exact words were, ““I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” One wonders if Obama is the first what does that say about Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? Senator Biden’s comment leaves one to wonder why he would say that. Does he mean to imply that normally African Americans are usually dirty and inarticulate? Does racism swirl about the heart of the Democrats? The Democrats certainly do not think so. The blog, Jack and Jill Politics commented on a political cartoon which highlighted Hillary Clinton’s attempt to ape African Americans. The blog said:
“(I) just don't even know what to say about this cartoon by Chris Muir who's popular among the right wing bloggers and papers (h/t John Swift).It's almost like it's no longer as shocking to my system as it used to be. It's so gratuitous, racist and insulting, it's hard to know where to start breaking it down and explaining the many ways in which putting politicians in blackface and using pigeon English is not ok.”
What is interesting here is that the blog glosses over Hillary Clinton’s behavior and focuses on the right, but what did Hillary do to earn attention in the cartoon? Mrs. Clinton adopted a fake Southern accent, spoke as if she were a black woman with experience on the plantation to include the attendant pigeon English words and accent, and directly linked the Republicans to the slave masters. What did Jack and Jill Politics have to say about that? Not a damned thing. If the blogger is so upset by, “putting politicians in blackface,” then I wonder how she would feel about democratic supporters placing Joe Liebermann in black face with Bill Clinton? The photo of Bill Clinton and Senator Joe Liebermann was doctored to put Liebermann in a bad light in order to gain a political advantage over him. Such an act is not only abhorrent, but also anti-Semitic and racist.
Why would a progressive, forward thinking, loving, democrat try to paint Liebermann in blackface if it were not to stir up racial feelings? It was done because Liebermann was no longer a Democrat as he had lost the primary election and he was winning against Ned Lamont who was running as a Democrat. So you see, the Democrats eat their own. But wait! There is a hell of a lot more! The Democrats response to the right has been filled with vitriol and racial hatred. Take Michelle Malkin for example, the comments made by the rank and file of the left are reminiscent of the Nazi party. Consider the following comments made about Malkin:
“Why exactly does this large toothed educated female wog believe that she will be treated as white when God chose to make her yellow? Even her political allies see her as nothing more than a trained monkey coached into saying a few simple racial truths that would be politically damaging if put into the mouths of a white man? Her hatred for her fellow wogs comes from an inability to accept that God did not make her a European and that God chose to make her a woman.”
While the comment came from the liberal rank and file, it is in concert with the feelings of Clinton, Biden, Byrd, et al. Hard to believe? Look at how the Democrats treated Al Sharpton when he ran for president. Look at what they said about the first black woman Secretary of State or the first black male Secretary of State. Compare the diversity of the
While it is true that one liberal blogger spoke out against the blatant racism of the rank and file, he quickly retreated and said that he would take up the fight when the right did. I suppose that he is unaware of the diversity of the current administration or that Lynn Swann received the full support of the Republican Party, and the Republicans were the abolitionist party. However, it could also be that he is without a spine. Given the liberal urge to flee
Imus thought he was black too and that gave him the right to call the
In part III, we will explore the patriotism of the left.
