Democrats Say Racism Toward Conservative Blacks Is OK

I posted last week about a blogger named Steve Gilliard. I find his blog abusive and full of the victim mentality. He and his commenters lament about how badly minorities have it in America and that the Republicans are racists who do not care about minorities, blacks in particular. I think Gilliard is an idiot and like Jesse Jackson he is a race baiting poverty pimp. This is the jackass who doctored a picture of Maryland Lt. Governor Michael Steele to show him in minstrel make-up. To this idiot the display is OK because Steele is an Uncle Tom.

On the surface one would have to think well, this guy is entitled to his opinion and if he is a racist that is his business. Though one would not expect one black man to treat another this way, different strokes, as they say. But now we have Democrats in Maryland telling a newspaper reporter that it is OK to be racist to a Conservative. Yes folks, you read it right. The Democrats in Maryland said it was OK to degrade Steele based on his color because he is a Conservative.

You see, Conservatives represent people who espouse the ideas of making it without living off government hand-outs. Steele is a self made man and he is demonized for it because he does not represent the black community. What is that saying? Is it indicating that blacks can only succeed by relying on government programs and that they are so inferior that they need white guys to help them along? I think we can do better than that in America and I think that those who perpetrate these views are responsible for holding down talented people who want a better life.

Here are some quotes from Democrats in Maryland. Keep in mind that this is the inclusive party.

  • Such attacks against the first black man to win a statewide election in Maryland include pelting him with Oreo cookies during a campaign appearance, calling him an “Uncle Tom” and depicting him as a black-faced minstrel on a liberal Web log.
  • “There is a difference between pointing out the obvious and calling someone names,” said a campaign spokesman for Kweisi Mfume, a Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate and former president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
  • “Because he is a conservative, he is different than most public blacks, and he is different than most people in our community,” she said. “His politics are not in the best interest of the masses of black people.”
  • In 2001, Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. called Mr. Steele an “Uncle Tom,” when Mr. Steele headed the state Republican Party. Mr. Miller, Prince George’s County Democrat, later apologized for the remark.
    “That’s not racial. If they call him the “N’ word, that’s racial,” Mrs. Marriott said. “Just because he’s black, everything bad you say about him isn’t racial.”
  • However, the blog has kept its headline “Simple Sambo wants to move to the big house.” A caption beneath a photo of the lieutenant governor reads: “I’s Simple Sambo and I’s running for the Big House.”

Mfume and Marriott were on the Ron Smith show on WBAL and they were doing the famous Democratic dance known as the backpedal. Mfume said that race should not enter into it, of course unless you are stating the obvious. Marriott said that she did not say the things attributed to her in the article but said being called an Oreo is not racially motivated.

Just imagine if the Republicans were to do these things to a black Democratic candidate. There would be none of this it is OK crap. They would be up in arms telling us how we are racists. Keep in mind that it was all the moonbats who called George Bush a racist because he did not stop Hurricane Katrina. This obvious racial attack is blown off as OK because Steele is a Conservative. The Democratic party is full of hypocrites and they should be ashamed of their stupidity.

UPDATE: I want to point out that Mr. Mfume was on the radio the next day and stated that it was improper for race to be an issue. The remarks above were attributed to an aide and not Mr. Mfume. It seems that he is one of the few people who see this for what it is.

    There is such a sickness in the Democratic party,it breaths hypocrisy and double standard. I keep thinking this is the worst they can be, then something else they do shocks or sickens me even more.
    They might as well have Michael Moore run for President and Cindy Sheehan as VP/
