Eric Holder’s racialist hypocrisy

**Posted by Phineas

Remember when Eric Holder threatened to seek civil rights charges against George Zimmerman in the wake of his acquittal in the killing of Trayvon Martin? Remember how he sued states,  claiming that their voter identification laws harmed the civil rights of minority Americans? Remember how he sued Louisiana for providing school vouchers, charging that they reinforced segregation?

Well, you can forget it, if the victim is White.

A woman who said she was brutally attacked by a group of black teenagers in Pittsburgh’s North Side Sunday said the girls savagely beat her while calling her racial slurs.

(…)

Police said Slepski was savagely beaten after the girls threw a bottle at her car on Concord Street and she stopped to confront them.

“I was mad. I knew they were younger. I thought they were in their early 20s. I got out and said, ‘What is your problem?’” Slepski said.

All four African-American girls then called her names before getting physically violent.

“They yelled, ‘Shut up white [expletive].’ The other said, ‘Get that white [expletive],’” Slepski said.

Slepski said she tried to get back into her car but the girls grabbed her by the hair.

“The one punched me in the head and I was on a set of concrete steps and my head hit the concrete so hard,” said Slepski. “Then they all got on top of me and all their hands were in my hair. They kept telling each other to, ‘Kick her in the head. Kick her head in the concrete.’”

Writing at PJMedia, Christian Adams, who’s made a second career out of tracking Holder’s dedication to racial injustice, says Holder is no better than the old segregationists:

Well here’s an easy case Eric. It won’t be too hard to prove a violation of 18 USC 249 or 18 USC 245 in this context. No outrageous self-defense defenses here.

But like in all the other similar cases you refuse to prosecute, the victim here wasn’t one of “your people.” Ginger’s parents didn’t endure the sort of garbage that your wife’s parents did down south. So she isn’t entitled to equal protection of the law, right?

Make no mistake, Ginger isn’t the only victim who won’t get justice from Justice, just because of her race. Neither will the parents who were beaten at the Wisconsin State Fair. Nor will the parents in Ohio who saw thugs come on their lawn shouting racial slurs before they beat them.

In the United States, we like to say Justice is blind, holding all equal before the law. In Eric Holder’s America, however, Justice peaks out from under her blindfold to check your skin color, first.

Stupidity on steroids: Missouri NAACP prez says Obama rodeo clown act = “hate crime”

Good grief:

The head of the Missouri Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People said Thursday that a rodeo clown who donned a mask of President Obama at the Missouri State Fair had committed a hate crime.

“I think that a hate crime has occurred,” Mary Ratliff told KXNT Radio in Las Vegas on Thursday. “I think a hate crime occurs when you use a person’s race to depict who they are and to make degrading comments, gestures, et cetera, against them.”

The rodeo clown donned the Obama mask before being chased around by bulls in a pen, according to reports. The clown was introduced by an announcer who asked the audience if they wanted to see “Obama run down by a bull.” The Missouri State Fair on Monday barred the clown from performing at the fair.

Ratliff said that her organization is asking the Department of Justice to conduct an investigation into the incident, adding that it is an “outrage” that taxpayer dollars were used to disrespect the president.

“We are taxpayers in the state of Missouri,” Ratliff said. “And when taxpayer money is utilized to discredit and be disrespectful to our president, whether he be black, white, Hispanic, Latina… it is an outrage.”

Ratliff has also asked the Secret Service to investigate the incident.

You have got to be freaking kidding me.  Poking fun at the President of the United States is a “hate crime” worthy of DOJ/Secret Service “investigation” because he happens to be black? Is this fascist w/ the Missouri state NAACP aware of the hundreds, if not thousands, of times some variation of the form of President Bush was “disrespected” by anti-war protesters and the like during his 8 years as President and  that no figure of prominence on the right ever called for the powers that be to “investigate” for “hate crimes” violations on the basis of “race”? Furthermore, even if a “joke” of this nature could be considered in poor taste, does it REALLY rise to the level of a “hate crime”??

They told me that if I voted for Mitt Romney that  dissent would no longer be patriotic, and they were right! *Shaking my head. *

PS: Loved Rep. Steve King’s response to this:


Heh.

Dissent is patriotic

… but only if you’re a Democrat.

Props to @DonLemonCNN regarding his contributions to the national convo on race

Keep calmIn the days and weeks following the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, many pundits, politicos, and average Joe and Jane Americans were calling for the national dialogue on race we’ve needed to have for a long time but can’t thanks to lifetime race hustlers like Rev. Al Sharpton, Rev. Jesse Jackson, and their race-baiting  fellow Democrats in local, state, and national political office who have a vested interest in keeping the racial pot stirred in their favor.   This has been tried before – after the OJ verdict, after the Cambridge police “acted stupidly” incident (remember the “Beer Summit”?), and many other times where issues that seemingly  have a racial angle are advanced onto the national stage. And each time, the national conversation withers thanks to the Usual Suspects who have been allowed for decades to discount voices they find “insufficiently sympathetic” to the black community. Translation: If you’re not prone to bowing down to the conventional wisdom/accepted ‘facts’ about the black community as expressed by the Reverends and other hypocritical race pimps – that all of the problems in the black community are the fault of white oppression – then you are a racist, a denier, and if you are black, you’re an “Uncle Tom.”

One of the more prominent voices to respond to the varying calls for a “national dialogue” on race after the Zimmerman verdict was Fox News’ evening talkster Bill O’Reilly, who in late July served up some politically incorrect truths about black crime and culture.  In response, the  typical “raaaacist!!” chants kicked into high gear, because Bill  O. is a white conservative, you see, and we’re part of the “excluded class” who aren’t allowed to have a voice at this table on this issue because we’re all allegedly seething racists or whatever.  Someone who didn’t condemn Bill O., however, was CNN anchor Don Lemon, who provided commentary of his own on the matter, and who stated O’Reilly “didn’t go far enough” to address the issue.

In response to Lemon’s – who is black – candid remarks on the subject, a barrage of vile hate swung in his direction, mostly from the black community  – including self-important twits like  pundits Goldie Taylor, Toure, and others.   As we’ve seen all too often before, when a black person (liberal or conservative) dares to agree with a white conservative to any significant degree on sensitive matters involving race, they, too, are shoved into a corner, with their opinions disregarded as “Uncle Tom-ish” and the like.  Lemon, undeterred, continued on with his stance in spite of the predictable opposition to what he said, which drew the attention of race pimp and rap mogul Russell Simmons, who smeared Lemon in a both an open letter and Twitter rant.  In one of his tweets, Simmons called Lemon a “slave” (Simmons later took it back).

Lemon, in turn, responded to Simmons and other critics over the weekend, taking the high road where Simmons and others would not.   The video of Lemon’s remarks is below. It’s about five minutes, but well-worth watching:

Here are some excerpts of Lemon’s comments (via the RCP link above – bolded emphasis added by me):

You [Simmons] also write, I can’t accept that you would single out black teenagers as the cause of their own demise because they don’t speak the King’s English or where belts around their waist bands.

That really makes me question whether you even watch the segment or even wrote the letter yourself because I never blamed anyone for their own demise. I never pinned it on any teenagers, on anybody. Nor did I mention the King’s English. I did, however, mention the “n” word.

You also wrote, young people sagging their pants today is no different than young people rocking afros or platform shoes in the ’60s and ’70s.

Russell, afros came out of the struggle of the after American civil rights movement. The dashiki is a traditional form of African dress.

Sagging, Russell, the hip hop community which you helped established, dropped the G on the word so that spelled backwards the word reads n- i-g-g-a-s. It came from Riker’s island in New York, one of the largest attention centers in the U.S. It was originally called wearing your pants Riker’s style.

When you went in you turned in your belt, your shoe laces, and the only shirt the jail provided was a white double XXL-shirt. Are you equating dressing like a criminal to African pride? Are you saying it is OK to perpetuate the negative stereotype of young, black men as convicts, criminals, prisoners? How does that enhance their lives or society as a whole?

I do give you, Russell Simmons, and some of the hip hop and rap community credit for trying to clean up your act. Some like J. Cole and Kanye West are now rapping about social issues like the prison industrial complex. More of that, please. We welcome that. Everyone does. But you’re not off the hook.

Amen. Make sure to read the whole thing, and if you’re on Twitter, please show support to Don Lemon by tweeting to him to keep strong through all this. Most public figures who call for a national dialogue on race are usually posturing and don’t really mean it. It’s clear Lemon does, and he deserves our encouragement to stand firm in the face of much dirt and mud being flung in his direction by people whose livelihoods depend on maintaining our current racial divisions. And we, too, can add to the discussion by not only offering constructive debate, suggestions, and criticisms, but also by LISTENING and REACHING OUT.  We should do this – MUST do this – in spite of the naysayers who demand we, along with Don Lemon, sit down and shut up while they continue to profit from the suffering in poorer black communities.

Stand. And be heard!

I stand with Don.

Can’t make it up: Liberals accuse *conservatives* of overuse of the race card

Danger, danger! Time for a reality check, liberals.

Reality

A reminder for race-baiting liberals.

Sadly, liberal blogger Josh Marshall was indicative last night in expressing and agreeing with the line of thinking of several influential left-wing writer/commentator types on the issue of racism, and I called him out on it:


Needless to say, MSNBC’s serial race-baiter Touré couldn’t help but get into the act as well, offering his .02 worth (if it’s even worth that much):


You really can’t make this stuff up. Think about it: Whenever a white conservative comments on issues like affirmative action, or even DARES to criticize “the first black President”, we’re accused of racism. Full stop. This is a tactic that liberals frequently use to shut down discussions on many issues that have NOTHING to do with race whatsoever. If you’re against ObamaCare you’re a racist. If you oppose raising taxes, you’re a racist. If you want to reduce the rate of future growth for social programs, you’re a racist. It goes on and on.

So, no Josh, Touré, and other liberals who have benefited from playing the very card you laughably and ignorantly accuse conservatives of playing – you guys have set the “standard” of just what is and isn’t “acceptable” to be said by conservatives when it comes to racial topics and the President himself, which isn’t much. And you don’t do it because you’re “concerned” about the racial atmosphere in America. You do it because the idea of someone daring to have strong philosophical disagreements with this President and your party is so offensive to your delicate liberal sensibilities that you’ll do anything to shut down opposing viewpoints. By any means necessary, and all that. We won’t let you get away with it, however, and you hate that.

Keep trying, fascists. Ultimately, you won’t win.

Blacks killed in Chicago, July 1st to July 14th, 2013

**Posted by Phineas

When a single African-American male was killed by a Hispanic man acting in self-defense, the event became national news for over a year. We were told by the major media that this showed how violent and racist a society American still is. And yet, for the 2,236 Blacks killed in Chicago, which has strict gun control, since 2007, we don’t hear all that much outrage from that same major media.

From the excellent site Redeye, here are the names, ages, dates of death, locations, and cause of death for African Americans killed in President Obama’s hometown in the first two weeks of July, 2013.

State Senator Elbert Guillory: Why I chose to become a Republican

**Posted by Phineas

Oh, this is a good video that’s going to tick off a lot of Democrats:

(Transcript at Real Clear Politics)

First, welcome to the party, Senator. I love what you have to say.

Second, I hope your political body armor is strong, because the last thing your former colleagues in the Democratic party will tolerate is a minority politician wandering off the reservation. Especially as you’re the first Black Republican in the Louisiana legislature since Reconstruction. Just ask Allen West or Tim Scott or Susanna Martinez or… You get the idea.

BTW, I hear US Senator Mary Landrieu might need a challenger.

Nancy Pelosi, a racist hypocrite?? Say it ain’t so!

**Posted by Phineas

I’m sure there’s a perfectly innocent explanation why a White Democratic congressman under investigation gets unstinting support from the House Democratic leadership, while Black Democratic congressmen also facing investigation are asked to step aside.

Back story: Representative Robert Andrews (D-NJ) has been credibly accused of using campaign funds to fund personal trips. He has received strong backing from Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, and Nancy Pelosi has promoted him into the caucus leadership. Representative Andrews is also White.

Don’t think the Black Caucus hasn’t noticed the difference in treatment its members receive:

“It bears notice that Pelosi appointed Mr. Andrews to a leadership position in the midst of this investigation,” the [chief of staff of a Congressional Black Caucus member] said. “That is in direct contrast to the approach taken with similarly situated members of the Black Caucus, who routinely faced pressure to step away from leadership posts during investigations.

“Her commitment to fairness will be tested in how she responds to this announcement.”

Dude, considering the Black vote always goes 90% for the Democrats and your caucus never seriously threatens to bolt, why should she “respond?” You’ll give the hypocrite what she wants, no matter how hard she backhands you. And until you start acting on the real interests of your constituents, instead of mindlessly parroting the Democrat-Left agenda, nothing is going to change.

Besides, Nancy is a San Francisco limousine liberal. Therefore, any charge or even hint of bigotry on her part is ridiculous on its face. In fact, the Democratic Party as a whole has been pure as the driven snow on race.

Just ask them.

#NewTone: Liberal super PAC using ethnicity-based attacks on McConnell’s “Chinese” wife

Despicable.   Via Lousiville’s WFPL news radio:

A Democratic group is under sharp criticism for controversial online messages about Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell’s wife.

For months, the liberal super PAC Progress Kentucky has attacked McConnell and held demonstrations at his offices and home.

Recently, the group turned its attention to McConnell’s wife, former Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, with a focus on her race.

In a Feb. 14 Twitter message, Progress says: “This woman has the ear of (Sen. McConnell)—she’s his wife. May explain why your job moved to China!”

The Tweet links to a website run by conspiracy theorist and radio host Jeff Rense, alleging Chao, who was born in Taiwan, discriminated against American workers during her tenure.

Progress Kentucky spokesman Curtis Morrison says the group’s leaders do not review every Tweet and initially denied any had mentioned Chao superficially. But he later told WFPL that a group volunteer had sent out the messages targeting the former secretary.

“It’s not an official statement. It’s a Tweet. And we will remove it if it’s wrong,” he says. “I follow Ashley Judd on Twitter and she removed a Tweet the other day, she Tweeted to you Phillip. People make mistakes in Tweets. It happens. Inferring that Elaine Chao is not a U.S. citizen was not our intention.”

Other messages from Progress’s social networking account about Chao have run for the past several days, saying her “Chinese (money)” is buying state elections. According to campaign finance records, members of Chao’s family donated $80,000 to the Kentucky GOP last year.

The super PAC has also posted vocal support of their criticism, one of which said “not many know McConnell’s wife is Chinese.”

[…]

In years past, opponents have questioned McConnell’s relationship with his father-in-law, James Chao, who owns Foremost Maritime Corp., a New York-based shipping company. The business has trade connections to China and Chao’s father has ties to its government.

Questioning his relationship with his father-in-law is one thing. Using his wife’s heritage to try and “prove a point”, on the other hand, is most definitely not.

Naturally, top Republicans have demanded an apology from Progress Kentucky and have called for Democrat leaders to denounce the attacks in the strongest of terms.  PK has said they will issue an apology to Chao later today and several leading Democrats at the state and national level have repudiated the PAC’s line of attack.  Even actress Ashley Judd, a potential opponent (seriously) for Senator McConnell in the 2014 Senate race, criticized the PAC without mentioning them by name:


Well, it sounds like the obligatory apologies and/or denunciations have been made, but the thing that should be the focus beyond this is how little national mainstream media attention this story has gotten. Had the parties been switched here and it was a Republican PAC making these types of attacks, we’d have wall to wall coverage, and non-stop “analysis” by MSDNC and other liberally slanted “news” outlets as to What It All Means for the future of the GOP. But it’s not, so state coverage is about the best we can get.

In a perfect world, the mainstream press would be consistent but ….. oh well.

Marco Rubio tells Colin Powell to stop being a tool

**Posted by Phineas

Victim of Republican Intolerance?

Victim of Republican Intolerance?

Well, not in so many words, but that was the gist of the Florida senator’s remarks during an interview this morning, when asked about former-Secretary of State Powell’s assertions of hidden racism in the Republican party:

I disagree with General Powell’s assessment of the Republican Party today,” Rubio said.

“The Republican Party is the party that [has] placed two Hispanics in the U.S. Senate,” Rubio told Tantros, “and we have an African-American senator in the United States Senate.”

Republican intolerance is so bad that, not only do we include two Hispanics (Rubio, Cruz) and one Black (Scott), but also two governors of Indian descent (Haley, Jindal) and two of Latin origin (Martinez, Sandoval). Much as I loathe ethnic bean-counting (1), if the Democrats are going to trot out their useful idiots to smear Republicans and conservatives with the race card, then it’s fair to ask where are the Democrats’ high-level minority leaders?

They might find the answer “embarrassing as Hell:”

Inclusive?

Inclusive?

And let’s not forget Colin Powell, himself, who was made Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Secretary of State under Republican administrations, and has at times almost been begged to be that party’s candidate for president.

Yeah, that’s “intolerant,” all right. Everyone knows that appointment to the senior-most position in the president’s cabinet, fourth in line from the Oval Office, is just another demeaning form of tokenism.

What a shnook.

RELATED: “Dark vein of intolerance,” Mr. Secretary? Perhaps you need a little lesson about the Democrats’ dirty history.

PS: Funny how Powell was trotted out to play the race card right after the storm broke over the photo above. Almost as if the administration needed a distraction…

UPDATE: I want everyone reading this to look at these two pictures and tell me which administration seems more genuinely “diverse and inclusive.”

Footnote:
(1) As a conservative, I care about a person’s principles and the content of their character, not irrelevancies such as skin color, ethnicity, or gender. I’ll leave that insulting game to Democrats and their willing dupes.

A tale of two Rices, the race card, and rank hypocrisy

Black conservative Deroy Murdock takes on the race-card-playing tactics of Democrats on the issue of UN Ambassador Susan Rice – and wins:

Just as the aforementioned Democrats rebuffed Rice and Thomas due to policy differences (possibly excluding KKK alumnus Robert Byrd), Senate Republicans such as Arizona’s John McCain, South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham, and New Hampshire’s Kelly Ayotte have criticized U.N. ambassador Susan Rice — but not for practicing diplomacy while black. Regardless, liberals scream: “Racism!”

“There is a clear sexism and racism that goes with these comments being made by unfortunately Senator McCain and others,” said Representative Marcia Fudge (D., Ohio), incoming Congressional Black Caucus chairwoman. “It is a shame that anytime something goes wrong, they pick on women and minorities.”

After Republicans called Susan Rice “incompetent,” Representative James Clyburn (D., South Carolina) told CNN: “These are code words. . . . Those of us who were born and raised in the South — we’ve been hearing these little words and phrases all of our lives and we get insulted by them.”

When 97 House Republicans wrote President Obama to condemn Rice, a November 22 Washington Post editorial helpfully noted that “more than 80 of the signatories are white males, and nearly half are from states of the former Confederacy.”

MSNBC’s Richard Wolffe decried a “witch hunt going on the right about these people of color, let’s face it, around this president. Eric Holder, Valerie Jarrett, now Susan Rice.”

“I’ll leave it to you to decide how much of the tarring of Rice as incompetent and unqualified is about the myth of black inferiority and female inferiority,” said MSNBC anchor Touré.

Why would allegedly racist, sexist Republicans let another black female diplomat named Rice — Condoleezza — address their national convention last August 29, immediately before Representative Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) accepted the party’s vice-presidential nomination? Since when do bigots give 19 minutes of prime-time TV to people they despise?

If Senators Graham and McCain really can’t stomach blacks, why did they and every other voting Republican send a black woman (Condoleezza Rice) to run the State Department and, in McCain’s case, a black man (Clarence Thomas) to the Supreme Court for life? (Only two Republicans spurned Thomas: Vermont’s James Jeffords and Oregon’s Bob Packwood, both liberals.)

Make sure to read the whole thing.

Murdock rightly goes on to call for what we all have been for years now: For the left to STOP  falsely playing the race card every time “one of their own” has been criticized, and save the criticisms, you know, for actual racism – not the phony type imagined or contrived for shameless political gain at the expense of the national discourse and, er … going forward on the issue of race in America.

Of course, Democrats won’t listen to this because they have too much invested in the black vote (and the female & Hispanic votes, too, it should be noted) and – as this election cycle reaffirmed, their demagoguery  on any number of issues, ranging from birth control to rape to affirmative action to illegal immigration went a long way towards helping get Barack Obama and his party back over the finish line after a very disappointing year from them in 2010.  We can’t rely on the left to stop these disgusting tactics, nor can we count on most of their allies in the mainstream press to call them out on it, so it’s on us to continue to tenaciously take them to task until people, in particular “minorities”, start waking up.

And when they do, and the peeling off of their voting ranks from the Democrats starts, it’ll be a thing of beauty.  I, for one, hope I’ll be alive to see it.  As I’ve said repeatedly, once the left loses its stranglehold on the “minority” vote, winning elections will be a lot harder for them because they’ll have less of a “victim” class to exploit.

Hey, a girl can dream, can’t she?
