Obama Administration, NAACP, Have Racist Egg All Over Their Faces. Again.

July 20, 2010

I like the way that HotAir sets up this story about an USDA official expressing her racist policies before the NAACP:

The NAACP is about to learn one of the most basic of all lessons in life — those who live in glass houses should avoid provoking a stone-throwing war.  After the civil-rights organization threatened to issue a condemnation of Tea Party activism by equating it with racism (a position from which they ultimately retreated), Andrew Breitbart announced that he would publish at least one video of the NAACP itself cheering racism.  Breitbart delivers on that promise today at Big Government, showing USDA official Shirley Sherrod explain to an appreciative NAACP audience in July 2009 how she deliberately withheld information from a white farmer in Georgia trying to save his land and his business.

Here’s the youtube video:

And here’s a transcript of what she said in front of an NAACP audience:

“He had to come to me for help. What he didn’t know while he was taking all that time trying to show me he was superior to me was I was trying to decide just how much help I was going to give him,” she said. “I was struggling with the fact that so many black people have lost their farmland and here I was faced with having to help a white person save their land — so I didn’t give him the full force of what I could do.  I did enough.”

For the official record, Shirley Sherrod was appointed by Barack Obama in July of 2009:

ATLANTA, GA…. In July 2009 former Federation staff member Shirley Sherrod was appointed as the USDA Rural Development Georgia State Director. Sherrod had worked with Federation of Southern Cooperatives/Land Assistance Fund since 1985 as the organization’s Director of the Georgia State Office. “We are proud that Shirley has been appointed to this position at Rural Development not just because she is the first African American in Georgia to hold the post, but also because of her vast experience in agriculture and rural development. Now the entire State of Georgia will benefit from her expertise.

Well, unless you’re white, anyway.

And this racist policy was expressed before an NAACP banquet.  The same NAACP that was just pointing the demagogic race-baiting finger at the Tea Party for nebulous examples of alleged racism.

I am so fed up and tired about racists lecturing conservatives about racism.  I am so fed up and tired with the endless double-standards and hypocrisy from the left.

The official racist policies of the Obama Administration, the Democrat Party, and so-called “civil rights groups” such as the NAACP is truly something to behold.

It’s the same sort of crap we witness with other liberal groups, such as the unions – who hire non-union, minimum wage picketers who get no benefits – to bitch about how other employees treat employees.

It’s the same sort of crap we witness when Obama and Democrats argue that Republicans were to blame for the reckless spending policies when the last Republican budget deficit was $161 billion – compared to the in-excess-of-$1-TRILLION deficits the Democrats have been imposing upon us since.

It’s the same sort of crap we witness when Obama and Democrats demagogue the unemployment issue – falsely claiming that Republicans want to starve unemployed people – when in reality all Republicans demand is to have any jobless benefit extensions paid for by using funds from the $862 billion porkulus.  Even though Obama has repeatedly argued in the past that Republicans should have paid for their own policies.  And even though Obama PRAISED the pay-as-you-go rule and promised to abide by it.

It’s the same crap from liberals who shrilly denounce conservatives as being “anti-Obama” when they couldn’t have been more over-the-top anti-Bush.

It’s the crap of liberal hypocrites who denounce and denounce and denounce the other side when in fact they the liberals are doing at least as bad and in fact worse.

I’m sick of the racists blaming conservatives for racism.  I’m sick of unions blaming employers for refusing to pay for unsustainable wages and benefits.  I’m sick of spend-crazy Democrats blaming Republicans for spending.  And most of all, I’m sick of Barack Obama constantly demoguing, demonizing, fearmongering, and blaming his political opponents for every single issue and failure under the sun.

The Obama Administration and the NAACP – for all their finger-pointing – have racist egg all over their faces.

Obama promised to transcend racial and political divides, but our Racist-Divider-in-Chief has done more to lower us into the abyss than any president since the last Democrat racist president decades ago.

Democrats and their ideological pawns can point all the fingers they want, but every time they do, three fingers are pointing back at them.

Update, July 20: News reports are coming out saying that the event in question surrounding Shirley Sherrod occurred in 1986, and that she was working for a non-profit at the time (as opposed to working for the government).  And Shirley Sherrod is saying that she was using this example as a “pivot point” in which she confronted and began to overcome her own attitudes.

She is also reporting that the Obama administration fired her (or intensely pressured her to resign) without having any review of the basic facts.  In fact, administration official Cheryl Cook literally asked Sherrod to pull her car over and resign, saying her story would be on Glenn Beck that night.

Her story WAS on Glenn Beck.  But rather than cheer her firing, Beck said she should stay, arguing that her story is one of a woman learning to overcome her racist attitudes, rather than one of a story of a racist.

It’s hard to know what all the facts are at this point, since the full video of the speech in question has yet to be made available by the NAACP, but I find it interesting that the White House would push to protect a particularly hateful New Black Panther racist by having a verdict against him dismissed, and then immediately turn around and fire an innocent woman without examination.

All I can say for sure is that there is clearly a bunch of screws loose and rattling around the White House.

Racist Left Seeks To Employ Racist Plants To Falsely Depict ‘Evidence’ Of Tea Party Racism

April 13, 2010

There’s a response to name-calling that many children have at one time or another employed: to say, “I know you are, but what am I?”  It actually works to a ‘T’ against leftist attacks against the tea party of being a bunch of racists.

The fact of the matter is that the tea party is composed of a FAR broader and more representative spectrum of the American people than anything the Democrats – who have rammed most of their boondoggle policies through on strictly partisan votes – can claim.

Just about everybody has heard about the allegations of racism at the March 20th tea party rally in Washington D.C.  At that rally, Democrat legislators deliberately went through the tea party protesters in order to try to gin up a reaction (They had seventeen different routes they could have taken which would NOT have taken them through the tea party crowd).  Interestingly, the Democrats’ tactic was markedly similar to the National Socialist Party of America’s infamous march through the heavily Jewish populated town of Skokie, Illinois – only the Democrats didn’t appear to get the rise out of the crowd that they were hoping for.

Not to worry.  They invented “incidents” – and the lamestream media propaganda machine reported these “incidents” as though they were facts rather than merely unsubstantiated politically-motivated accusations.

Andrew Breitbart offered $100,000 to anyone who had any video or audio evidence that any “racist” incident occurred.  There were thousands of people with cell phone cameras and other audio-visual devices.  But nothing.  The lack of evidence IS evidence in this case.  And in fact, the actual evidence even demonstrates that the Democrats making these allegations were stone-cold race-baiting liars.

But when you are on the left, you don’t need facts.  All you need is a narrative such as, “We already KNOW all tea party people are a bunch of racists, so our accusation of racism at a tea party event must be true.”

Now we are finding out that leftists have been seeking to brand the tea party as “racists” are literally seeking plants to go into tea party events and fabricate their own examples of “tea party racism.”

As one example of this, there is the CrashTheTeaParty.org movement.  As Newsbusters reports:

Their plan is to “infiltrate” Tea Party protests to create the false impression that protesters are racists by … being racists. That’s right, they will bring with them offensive signs and give wildly offensive interviews to reporters, all with the intention of smearing a movement that wouldn’t bring those signs or give those interviews themselves. It remains to be seen whether the mainstream media will take the bait.

This is nothing new.  Saul Alinsky advised students to falsely demonize the right by planting people in Ku Klux Klan robes at conservative speeches in the 1970s.  More recently, the Democrat headquarters in Denver, Colorado had a brick thrown threw a window during the health care debate last year – by a Democrat.

Will Mainstream Media reporters and editors expose, screen out, or help Tea Party saboteurs?

Have you seen the “Crash the Tea Party” web site? It’s among the most illustrative expressions ever of the thirst on the Left to suppress dissent by whatever means are necessary. It is Saul Alinsky on steroids.

Whoever is behind the site claims that it represents “a nationwide network of Democrats, Republicans and Independents who are all sick and tired of that loose affiliation of racists, homophobes and morons; who constitute the fake grassroots movement, which calls itself ‘the Tea Party.'”

That’s another way of saying that most Americans are racists, homophobes and morons, since there is abundant and growing evidence that the Tea Partiers are more representative of the center-right conservative majority of Americans than President Obama.

But then the Left has always been about an elitist minority of power-hungry ideologues telling the rest of us what to do, so no surprise there.

Where Crash the Tea Party really gets interesting, though, is in its description of its purpose: “To dismantle and demolish the Tea Party by any non-violent means necessary.” But if the average American is really as sick and twisted as the geniuses behind Crash the Party claim, why rule out the use of violence to demolish them?

The answer, of course, is that inclusion of the “non-violent” qualifier is for show; historically, once Leftists gain power, they always use violence to “dismantle and demolish” all opposition (See Lenin, Stalin, the Gulag, Chairman Mao, Pol Pot, Fidel, Daniel Ortega, Hugo Chavez, etc.).

Now comes the aspect of Crash the Tea Party that ought to get the attention of all mainstream media journalists: Crash the Party is undertaking to sabotoge Tea Party events by “infiltrating the Tea Party itself” and then acting “in ways which exaggerate their least-appealing qualities (misspelled signs, wild claims in TV interviews, etc.).”

In other words, some on the Left in American politics are running a KGB-like “false flag” operation to discredit the Tea Party. They couldn’t sell the transparently nonsensical idea that Tea Partiers are just a bunch of racists, homophobes and morons, so the Crash the Party agents on the Left are infiltrating the Tea Party in order to pose as a bunch of racists, homophobes and morons.

It’s a classic KGB-style disinformation campaign. Will mainstream media editors and reporters be fooled? Will they know it when they are being scammed by Crash the Party? Will they expose Crash the Party operatives or cooperate with them in their effort to misrepresent millions of Americans?

It’s going to be an interesting spring and summer.

And of course we know what the mainstream media will do: because they have become the very sort of Joseph Goebbels demagogic Ministry-of-Propaganda-type media ideologues who have been the rule of every single leftwing totalitarian government apparatus in history.

Had the media reported on the March 20 tea party event honestly, they would have actually bothered to check the evidence before running the story of racism – and they would have at very least reported that no supporting evidence of any such claim actually existed.

These are bad people doing this stuff, and it is bad people who are reporting it as news as though it were true.

Democrats Spew Hate While Whining About Hate

April 3, 2010

From the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, written by prominent Democrat strategist James Carville:

This is nuts. At a time when most of America is celebrating historic health care legislation that’s been a century in the making, a few narrow-minded tea party nut jobs are trying to tarnish this great achievement.

But if you think these vile two-bit wing-nuts are just gonna slink back into whatever century they crawled out from now that health care reform is the law, think again.

The same uncorked tea party rage that we saw before the health care vote is now being used against the courageous House Democrats who stood strong and made it happen.

In fact, the slimy thugs at the Republican National Committee already raised $1,494,084 in their “Fire Nancy Pelosi” campaign. That’s why I’m asking you to help my Democratic friends in the House by contributing to their Million Dollar Match campaign.

Contribute to support Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats before the critical March 31st FEC fundraising deadline and your contribution will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a group of committed Democrats.
http://dccc.org/fire

This is the first FEC fundraising deadline since the House passed health care reform. And, Republicans and the media are watching closely to see whether we reach our million dollar goal.

We gotta take this fight right to those Republican special interests and right-wing extremists determined to bring back the failed policies of the past.

Contribute to support House Democrats before the critical March 31st FEC fundraising deadline and your contribution will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a group of committed Democrats.
http://dccc.org/fire

We will not be intimidated by the lies, distortions and hate spewing venom from the mouths of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, John Boehner and the other Republican gas bags. And, we’re not about to back down in the face of the tidal wave of special interest cash pouring into the campaigns of our Republican opponents thanks to the radical decision by the Supreme Court.

The March 31st FEC deadline is a golden opportunity to demonstrate that Democrats are on the march. We already dealt those tea party crazies a big blow by putting health care reform into the history books. Now let’s make it a double-punch by beating them on this big fundraising deadline.

Thanks,

James Carville

P.S. Republicans failed to block health care reform. Now, they are unleashing millions of dollars of attack ads on House Democrats who voted for it. Stand with Speaker Pelosi and those courageous pro-health care Democrats. Contribute to support House Democrats before the critical March 31st FEC fundraising deadline and your contribution will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a group of committed Democrats.

If this disappears, I’ve got the screen shot.

Now, I read this and ask myself, “What could I say about Democrats that would be off-limits or over-the-top after reading this spewage about Republicans and tea party supporters?  Seriously.

Let’s get to the facts.  First, James Carville is a documented liar.  He says

“At a time when most of America is celebrating historic health care legislation that’s been a century in the making, a few  narrow-minded tea party nut jobs are trying to tarnish this great achievement.”

Most of America is celebrating? Excuse me? CBS (the home of Walter Cronkite) just came out with a poll that shows Obama has sunk to the lowest approval of his presidency SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE of that health care takeover that James Carville falsely claims Americans are “celebrating.”

From CBS:

Last week, President Obama signed historic health care reform legislation into law — but his legislative success doesn’t seem to have helped his image with the American public.The latest CBS News Poll, conducted between March 29 and April 1, found Americans unhappier than ever with Mr. Obama’s handling of health care – and still worried about the state of the economy.

President Obama’s overall job approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 44 percent, down five points from late March, just before the health bill’s passage in the House of Representatives. It’s down 24 points since his all-time high last April. Forty-one percent of those polled said they disapproved of the president’s performance.

More results from this CBS News Poll will be released in Friday’s broadcast of the Evening News with Katie Couric, which airs at 6:30 p.m. Eastern.

When it comes to health care, the President’s approval rating is even lower — and is also a new all-time low. Only 34 percent approved, while 55 percent said they disapproved.

Polls have routinely showed a 20-point difference with Americans opposed to ObamaCare in the majority.

Here’s CNN:

Washington (CNN)A majority of Americans have a dim view of the sweeping health care bill passed by the House, saying it gives Washington too much clout and won’t do much to reduce their own health care costs or federal deficits, according to a new poll released Monday.

A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll found that 59 percent of those surveyed opposed the bill, and 39 percent favored it.

James Carville is simply a documented liar without conscience, shame, or decency.

And then this liar turns around and lies about those who have the principles which he so profoundly lacks.

Second, Obama and Democrats can demagogue about Republican “hate,” but they’ve got so many megatons of hate on their side that it’s a rather massive joke for them to point fingers at anybody.

Democrats are pointing at some faceless, nameless figure out of tens of thousands who allegedly said something hateful at a tea party event (still no proof, in spite of an offer of $100,000 to anyone who can provide a shred of evidence of racism at that event last week).  Which is to say that they can point to their own demagoguery; we can point to a top Democrat on a national Democrat official party committee.

Democrats point at Sarah Palin’s “targeting” districts as examples of hate.  And then we quickly discover two official Democrat maps that do the exact same thing.

And let’s just point out that virtually every single actual act of violence or hate has come from THE LEFTINCLUDING several acts in which liberals fundamentally lied about Republican “hate” or even actually threw a brick through a Democrat window.

My personal view is that Democrats are the official party of hate.  And, being hateful and vile, they assume that the characteristics which are completely true of them must be true of their opponents also.
