George Will shredded the left’s constant cries of racism Sunday, taking specific aim at Eric Holder’s latest false claim of racism.
“Liberalism has a kind of Tourette Syndrome these days. It’s constantly saying the words racism and racist,” he said. “There’s an old saying , if you have the law on your side, argue the law. If you have the facts on your side, argue the facts. If you have neither, pound the table. This is pounding the table.”
If you’re a fan of California Congresswoman Barbara Lee and/or think she’s pure as the driven snow, forgive the reference in the title to her as a “race hustler.” In adding this attribute, I was merely seeking to complete the circle begun by an article at the Huffington Post titled “Bill O’Reilly Calls Rep. Barbara Lee A ‘Race Hustler.’”
The problem with the HuffPo piece, which trades on an interview Ryan gave two weeks ago in which he spoke of the “tailspin of culture in our inner cities,” is not just that Lee cast the first stone. Rather it is her tendency to see racism wherever she turns and Ryan’s of approaching the problems that contribute to poverty with intelligence and compassion.
The scrawls with some of the more vulgar text blurred out
Incidents of hatred against gays, blacks, and other “protected classes” continue to occur at too slow a pace to satisfy the would-be victims, who therefore feel compelled to manufacture bias crimes against their kind. The latest example centers on race. The scene of the faked offense is Grand Valley State University in Michigan. William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection draws a parallel between this incident and the notorious Oberlin College racism hoax last August.
In February, MLive reported that racial slurs and obscenities were scrawled on a whiteboard on the door of a black student’s dorm room. The incident, Jacobson notes, “caused much turmoil on campus,” which is the general motive behind all of these hoaxes.
So this is what tolerance is all about? But I’m getting ahead of myself. First off, a Happy St. Paddy’s Day to all of our readers and to several of my LU comrades in arms, not least among them my partner, J.E. Dyer. Now go stand in a corner and feel bad about yourself, ya drunken louts!
Much was made of a recent attempt to pass a law in Arizona, that would allow them to discriminate against people who they do not wish to work for. Gays especially called it vile and criminal. They kept silent when a hair salon refused to do the hair of the governor of NM, because the governor does not support gay marriage.
We see the hypocrisy everyday. This article is about college staff members of color holding a secretive Happy Hour, which expressly denied whites access to. And this college is funded by taxpayer dollars.
What’s the best way to fight racism? Be racist yourself. That was the approach taken by a group of employees at South Puget Sound Community College who decided to hold a “happy hour” to “build support and community” for people of color. An invitation emailed by the “Staff, Faculty and Administrators of Color” went out to all 300 employees but made it clear that white employees were not invited.
“I broke no rules and he broke the decorum of the House.”
- Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrel Issa referring to Elijah E. Cummings’ rants after his mic was turned off.
Sounds good on the surface but Darrel Issa…like so many Republicans before him…cowering in fear of being called a racist changed his tune and ran scared when the race card was indeed thrown at him. Continue reading →
As Twitchy reported today, liberal heads are exploding over the fact that Rep. Darrell Issa cut off Elijah Cumming’s microphone after the Oversight Committee hearing in which Lois Lerner plead the Fifth Amendment.
Now, race-baiter Jesse Jackson claims the move was — wait for it — racist. That right, racist:
Some will take it is a sign that God was watching. A municipal bus driver in Dayton, Ohio, who was stabbed and shot at twice early Monday, likely escaped death thanks to a Bible he keeps in a jacket pocket over his heart.
The attack occurred around 5:20 a.m. after the driver, 49-year-old Rickey Wagoner, pulled to the curb to investigate an electrical problem. By all rights, the bullets that three young miscreants pumped into Wagoner’s chest at close range should have killed him.
Everyone is familiar with Senator Joseph McCarthy (R-Wis.). In the 1950s, McCarthy made a cottage industry of searching out and finding hidden communists throughout the federal government. In the post-WWII era, communism was a real threat. McCarthy, however, was a charlatan.
McCarthy’s inquisition began on Feb. 9, 1950 with a speech to the Republican Women’s Club of Wheeling, W.V. What McCarthy said wasn’t recorded, but, according to “The Politics of Fear” by Robert Griffith, the senator waved a piece of paper in his hand and proclaimed, “I have here in my hand a list of 205 names that were made known to the Secretary of State as being members of the Communist Party and who nevertheless are still working and shaping policy in the State Department.”
