It is always amazing to watch liberals — whose history includes support of every skin color judging idea and group in American history including but not limited to slavery to segregation, lynching, the Ku Klux Klan and racial quotas — make their pitch.
Case in point is racial bean counter Melinda Henneberger over at the Washington Post.
Here’s Henneberger going on about “the end of a long ugly road for the GOP’s southern strategy.”
In which the skin colorist Ms. Hennenberger steps to the plate to say that opposing the Obama welfare changes from a law signed by Bill Clinton was somehow racist. That the entire campaign was about “white resentment.”
Hello? Liberty, freedom, the free market, love of country are all about “white resentment”?
Says Henneberger with a trace of irony: “President Obama captured 93 percent of the African-American vote and 71 percent of the Latino vote.”
Hello again? So let’s see. Once upon a time Democrats used race to win 93 per cent or 71 percent or whatever of the white Southern racist vote — and now that they have continued with this tactic to appeal to blacks and Hispanics on the basis of race this is somehow a symbol of… tolerance?
This would be bizarre if it weren’t so understandable.
Liberalism is now dependent and has always been dependent on playing the race card. First, last and always liberals are about race. Racism is the coin of the realm to liberals.
And Melinda Henneberger is only the latest in a long line of modern race card players from Theodore Bilbo to Bull Connor to George Wallace to Al Sharpton to Maxine Waters to Chris Matthews.
I’d say shameful and immoral.
But what’s the point? This is how liberals get elected — and how they sell newspapers.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
