When It Comes To Charges Of Racism And Violence, Democrats Need To Do A Lot More Shutting The Hell Up

September 4, 2010

We’ve got Democrat extraordinaire Harry Reid on the record saying:

“I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, OK? Do I need to say more?”

And the fact that Reid still has his job is proof that this is an acceptable Democrat position.  The official Democrat position is now revealed: Hispanics – and surely blacks as well – are basically merely group-thinking herd animals who dumbly recognize that Democrats promise them free hay for life.  A cow is a cow, and not smart enough to be much more.  A cow must also now be a Democrat, and for the same reason.

Harry Reid’s statement of Democrat racial totalitarianism as applied to Hispanics is clearly even MORE true of blacks, who are statistically even more likely to be Democrats than Hispanics.  Ergo sum, racist mass murderer Omar Thornton is a Democrat by virtue of the fact that no one of African-American heritage could reasonably be anything else.  Just as was the gang of young black thugs who started a “beat whitey night” at the Iowa State Fairground.

Omar Thornton set aside the fact that he was literally on video stealing from his company.  He said it was all about racism.  And an avalanche of Democrats agree with everything Thornton said about white business owners being racist by the simple fact that they are white business owners.  Oh, with the possible exception of going out and killing everybody who make the giant chips on their shoulders itch.  Take for example the opinions of Obama’s latest replacement for racist spiritual adviser Jeremiah Wright, Jim Wallis:

The United States of America was established as a white society, founded upon the genocide of another race and then the enslavement of yet another. […]

What has not changed is the systematic and pervasive character of racism in the United States and the condition of life for the majority of African Americans. In fact, those conditions have gotten worse.

We can look back over the last couple of years and readily see that Democrats as a matter of routine have demonized Tea Party members and maliciously and FALSELY accused them of things they haven’t said and haven’t done.  We’ve recently got the New York Slimes on the record retracting it’s false charge that Tea Party people spit on a black congressman; and now we’ve got a Democrat caught red-handed posing as a racist Rand Paul supporter (mind you, he IS a racist; he’s posing as a Rand Paul supporter).  Which continues the already-revealed despicable Democrat strategy to pose as conservatives and say and do horrible things in order to demonize them.  Democrats haven’t bothered to associate actual events with Republicans and Tea Party members in order to demonize them; they’ve just created those events themselves.

Liberal Mary Frances Berry admits that the Democrats’ attempt to label the tea party as “racist” is essentially nothing more than an incredibly vile political strategy to escape blame for Democrat incompetence:

“Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats.  There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November.  Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness.”

The biggest Democrat charge is that conservatives are inciting violence with their violent rhetoric.  Here’s one example among many candidates:

WASHINGTON (CNN) – The Democratic National Committee will amplify its charge that Republicans are responsible for “inciting angry mobs of a small number of rabid right wing extremists … to disrupt” town hall meetings in a new 65 second Web video that will release Wednesday morning.

That when all the “angriest mobs” have been bussed in union workers (definition of AstroTurf) who have created all kinds of tension and violence (see here and here and here for three of many examples).  That when pro-Democrat SEIU thugs beat a black man to the ground and then kicked him outside of a town hall.  That when a liberal literally bit off a finger of an innocent man at a protest.  That when liberals are targeting tea party members with death threats (and see also here).

And that when at least two Democrat officials tell us they wish Sarah Palin could have been in the airplane crash that killed her fellow Alaska Republican Ted Stevens.

In case you missed it, on Tuesday Keith Halloran, a Democrat candidate for the New Hampshire House, posted in a Facebook thread about the plane crash that killed former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens, “Just wish Sarah and Levy [sic] were on board.”

New Hampshire State Representative Timothy Horrigan replied Wednesday, “Well a dead Palin wd [sic] be even more dangerous than a live one … she is all about her myth & if she was dead she cldn’ t [sic] commit any more gaffes.”

And even though all of the actual violence has been steadily coming from the left.

Recently, a leftist environmentalist whackjob was shot and killed while threatening to murder hostages in the Discovery TV building.  Earlier this year a leftwing loon professor murdered three people, and had killed before and been set free by Democrats.

There’s plenty of vile and violent Democrat rhetoric amping up and inciting the liberal base.  And lo and behold we’ve got black people that Democrats claim as theirs (that doesn’t sound racist, does it?) now taking it to the next level and killing white people for the crime of being white people.

Democrats demagogically attacked Sarah Palin as inciting violence when she used surveyors’ symbols to map vulnerable Democrat districts, just as Democrats attacked Michelle Bachmann as inciting violence for using the term “gangster government.” I pointed out at the time that if anyone was inciting violence, it was Barry Hussein for talking about guns and knives. What was it Obama said to incite Democrats to violence? Ah, yes:

OBAMA: “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”

And here we are: Omar Thornton did just what Obama told him to do and brought a gun.  And the damn thing (by which I mean Omar Thornton) went off and killed a bunch of people.

When it comes to charges of racism, or charges of inciting violence, Democrats need to do a lot less talking, and a whole lot more shutting the hell up.

Racist Murderer Laments He Didn’t Kill More White People

August 14, 2010

We’ve got the New Black Panthers and their leaders urging a race war and the killing of white babies:

“I hate white people.  All of them!  Every last iota of a cracker, I hate him!  You want freedom? You’re going to have to kill some crackers! You’re going to have kill some of their babies.”

We’ve got the Obama Administration dismissing charges of voter intimidation against men who brought weapons and issued racist threats against voters.  We’ve got the Obama Administration demanding, “Never bring a lawsuit against a black.” We’ve got We’ve got the New York Slimes’ pathetic retraction admitting that there was absolutely no evidence whatsoever that black congressmen were racially insulted or spat upon (see also here, and then take a look at the retraction here).  Which of course begs the question why these congressmen lied and maliciously and despicably claimed that they were the victims of a racist incident that in fact never occurred.

And now we’ve got a racist black thief becoming a racist murderer.

One wonders when the NAACP and the surrounding liberal establishment will quit calling the Tea Party racist and actually deal with the actual racists.

Probably never, but one wonders.

From the AP:

By STEPHEN SINGER and MARK SCOLFORO, Associated Press Thu Aug 5, 7:58 pm ET

HARTFORD, Conn. – A black man who went on a shooting rampage at a beer distributor calmly told a 911 operator that it was “a racist place” and that he “handled the problem” but wished he had shot more people.

Omar Thornton called 911 after shooting 10 co-workers — eight fatally — on Tuesday morning at Hartford Distributors Inc. He introduced himself as “the shooter over in Manchester” and said he was hiding in the building, but he would not say where.

“You probably want to know the reason why I shot this place up,” he said, his voice steady. “This place is a racist place. They’re treating me bad over here. And treat all other black employees bad over here, too. So I took it to my own hands and handled the problem. I wish I could have got more of the people.”

Connecticut State Police released the audio of the four-minute 911 call on Thursday, the day company and union officials rebutted suggestions that the company had ignored Thornton’s complaints of racism.

Thornton, 34, went on his rampage moments after he was forced to resign when confronted with video evidence that he had been stealing and reselling beer.

The 911 call confirmed suggestions from his relatives and girlfriend that he believed he was avenging racist treatment in the workplace.

Hartford Distributors president Ross Hollander said there was no record to support claims of “racial insensitivity” made through the company’s anti-harassment policy, the union grievance process or state and federal agencies.

“Nonetheless, these ugly allegations have been raised and the company will cooperate with any investigation,” Hollander said.

The union said 14 of 69 dock workers, or 20 percent, were racial minorities — four black, nine Hispanic, one Asian.

The idea that Thornton’s motive may not have been retaliation for losing his job has not sat well with many of the people who knew the victims and have firsthand knowledge of the environment inside the enormous distribution center in Manchester.

“Everybody just thinks this race card is such a wrong thing,” said Michael Cirigliano, whose slain brother, Bryan, was Thornton’s union representative at the disciplinary meeting and the president of the local union.

Michael Cirigliano also spent three decades working at the warehouse before he retired two years ago.

“The Hispanics and the blacks were telling me they’ve never seen anything they’re accusing the company of in the bathrooms or anywhere else at HDI,” he said. “It’s never been separated white, black, Asian. It’s never been like that.”

He said the company had increased its hiring of minorities in recent years.

“They’ve been bringing in more and more minority people to fill the positions,” Cirigliano said. “You could almost go as far as that’s reverse discrimination. They were hiring the groups to balance the workplace, because that’s what we are in America, there’s a balance.”

Anthony Napolitano, the son-in-law of victim Victor James, 60, of Windsor, said James treated everyone equally, regardless of race or religion.

Truck driver David Zylberman, a 34-year employee of the company, said that the racism claims “pissed me off because they were good people.”

I suppose you could argue that the three lying Black Caucus congressmen were actually virtuous.  I mean, sure they lied and maliciously tried to manufacture a race incident.  But at least they didn’t follow up their lies with homicides.

Slimeball murderer Omar Thornton – who manufactured claims of racism to conceal the fact that he was a thief who was literally caught on video stealing – wasn’t so “virtuous.”

After his shooting spree, he said, “I killed the five racists.”

We have had a rash of mainstream media propagandists and Democrat politicians demonizing the Tea Party for inciting violence.  Even though all the actual violence has been committed by the left.

Barack Obama promised he would be the post-racial president who would heal the divide.  Instead he has fanned racist flames that this country hasn’t seen in fifty years.  Which shouldn’t surprise anyone who is aware of the racist church that he was a member of for more than twenty years.  Obama has played the race card against Bill Clinton.  He has played the race card against a white police officer.  He has played the race card against an entire state of the union (Arizona).

Who is actually inciting racist violence?  And which race is responding with violence?

“You’re going to have to kill some crackers!  You’re going to have to kill some of their babies!”

“I killed the five racists!”

And, of course, Hispanic violence is now pretty much a matter of routine.

And here’s a DIFFERENT violent protest:

A Hispanic protester threatened the murder of white Americans with axes and shovels.  Because apparently the out-of-control Arizona border is not out-of-control enough for her.

Meanwhile, at event after event, Tea Parties rally peacefully and then pick up their own garbage.

This is where our society had degenerated into: if we try to prevent illegal immigrants from taking root and taking over our country, we’re racist.  If we try to fire a black man caught red-handed on video tape stealing from us, we’re racist.  If we try to refute race-baiting black congressmen from falsely accusing us of spitting on them, we’re racist.

It’s long past time we exposed the actual racists for who and what they are.

If you want racists; if you want incitements to violence; if you want ACTUAL violence; you turn your head and look at the Democrat Party.
