Democrats Put Up The Whites Only Sign

Whites Only

Democrat Harry Reid has refused to allow Roland Burris, the man selected by Governor Blagojevich to fill Obama’s Senate seat, to enter the Capitol. Burris arrived today and was not allowed to enter and therefore was not allowed to swear in. Burris was legally selected to fill the slot but the Democrats do not want to seat anyone selected by Blagojevich.

Perhaps this runs a little deeper. Burris is a black man and Harry Reid is reported to have contacted Blagojevich and told him that the three blacks in consideration for the job (prior to all the pay to play stuff) were not desired and he recommended two non blacks for the position. Once the pay to play scam was exposed Reid said that anyone selected by Blagojevich would be unacceptable. Reid has also stated that Blagojevich is lying about the conversation but I bet that Reid became a little worried when he found out that Blagojevich was being recorded. If Reid did make that call and did say those things, it will be on tape. The down and dirty though, appears to be that Reid and the Democrats do not want to seat a black man.

They were all calling for Franken to be seated and he does not have the paper that Burris is lacking. That did not stop Reid and Schumer from saying that Franken should be immediately seated (even though it would violate Minnesota law). I wonder why two whites were acceptable but none of the three blacks were. I also wonder why Reid will not seat Burris, a black man, without the proper papers but wanted to seat Franken, a white man, who lacks the same paperwork?

It would appear that the racist roots of the Democrats are showing through. The Democrats fought for slavery and against civil rights. The KKK was an arm of the Democrats and Jim Crow laws came from them as well. The Democrats have a long history of racism and now it is showing once again.

Make no mistake, I was against the idea that this seat had to go to a black person. I wrote earlier that the black community was up in arms about possibly losing the black seat when the seat has no color. The person the governor thinks is best qualified (or in Blagojevich’s case has the most money) would get the seat regardless of color. My opposition was to the idea that the seat belonged to the blacks and had to go to a black person.

In the case of Reid it appears that he and the Democrats do not want it to go to a black person at all. As stated, I don’t care what color the person is so long as his color is not the determining criteria.

To be fair, Senator Dianne Feinstein said that Burris should be seated.

In 2007, Vernon Jordan said that Republicans had a Whites Only sign on their tent. He made this accusation because the leading candidates for president decided to skip a debate at Morgan State University in Baltimore. The school is a black university in Baltimore so it is full of liberal blacks who vote greater than 90% for the Democrat. Couple that with the fact that Obama, a black man, was running and there is no way in hell that the students were going to vote for a Republican, especially a white one. So why waste time debating in front of people who will not vote for you?

I guess if we are to use Jordan’s logic, the Democratic tent in the Senate has a big Whites Only sign on it. Harry Reid and his Democrats denied access to a black man who was duly appointed as a Senator by a governor who had the legal right to do so. They claimed it was a paperwork issue but they were willing to ignore paperwork and let white guy Al Franken in. It is obviously racist and reflects the attitude of the Democrats.

Now that the Democrats have a larger majority there will probably be whites only water fountains and rest rooms and blacks will not be allowed to sit at the lunch counters in the Capital’s cafeteria. Next thing you know Harry Reid is going to have one of those little black jockey lawn ornaments in front of the Capital and I look for Robert Byrd to don his KKK sheets. For some reason blacks seem not to mind this guy even though in 1944 he said:

I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side… Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds. Wikipedia

Harry Reid must have consulted with Byrd before he took a decision on Burris. I guess they will never serve in the Senate with a negro by their side and would rather die a thousand times and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again than to see the Senate degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds…..

Of course, Democrats do not mind seeing Old Glory trampled at any time.

Mr. Burris, good luck to you. I don’t know why you are a Democrat. Look how they are treating you. Now you know in what regard they hold the blacks who vote for them time and time again.

Maybe sir, it is time to get off that plantation.

    Man, I am having so much because of this. Hey, I personally think Burris is a sack of garbage for that stunt he pulled when he was an AG (trying to send an innocent man to death row and ignore all the evidence because he was running for governor), but there is no reason why he shouldn’t be seated. Ill. Dems had a chance to prevent this, but they were too scared of the possibility a Republican could win a special election. The US Senate’s number one moron just made it worse. Democrats in general brought this on themselves and continue to make it worse. Here’s hopin’ this comes back to bite Reid on the butt in 2010 (along with his anti-military, traitorous attitudes).

  2. Clearly, the Senate Dems are bypassing the Constitution. Not that there’s anything all that unusual about the Democratic Party doing so.

    Well, one good thing about all these doings: the American people are seeing the Dems for what they are.

    Today is no different then it was twenty years ago, the democrats are rank And file segregationist.Harry Reid is afraid that if he seats Mr. Burris that just maybe he can’t win the re-election in 2010 and the people of Ill. will jump ship and elect a republican.
    The Democrats are so compassionate and loving as long as they need those votes,and the press says this only happens in the south. Harry you need to take a Greyhound,take your senior’s discount and go hone.
