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.
