Ma’am Boxer’s Identity Politics

First, note how my junior Senator doesn’t object when Black Chamber of Commerce, President and CEO Harry Alford calls her “Ma’am.” Guess she worked hard for that appellation.

This left-wing lady can’t seem to understand how a black businessman who pays property tax in our state might disagree with the NAACP.  By her logic then, all gays march in lockstep with HRC and “Equality Calfornia.”

Dan Riehl has more (via Glenn).

UPDATE:  After watching the video, Ed Morrissey offers:

I just love it when white politicians set themselves up as arbiters of racial authenticity, especially when they try to scold minorities for drifting off the political reservation. It belies a “soft” bigotry, if you will, when Barbara Boxer assumes all black people think the same and hold the same opinions — or even worse, that they should.

UP-UPDATE (via Ed above): Duane Patterson also calls her on her condescension:

Boxer’s entire M.O. as senator is to wield liberal ethnic or gender groups as a bat to bludgeon any criticism to her agenda. That’s not debating, that’s bullying. That’s not respecting racial diversity. It’s using racial groups as a weapon. It may be lost upon Senator Boxer, but not all African-Americans agree on everything. Not all Minnesotans do, either, for that matter. Maybe she could have cited some statistics that challenged Mr. Alford’s material, and had a fruitful discussion about the merits of implementing a cap and tax and tax system. Boxer can’t have that discussion. She’d lose. Instead, she implies she has more black people supporting her than opposing her, so Mr. Alford must therefore be discredited. Her stunt yesterday was reprehensible, shameful, and another blush in a long line of embarrassments all non-union voting residents of the Golden State have had to endure.

  2. All these politicians are making me sick, good for Alford! We need more people like him who call group think racist.

  3. Boxer, like all on the American left, think all black people think alike. To Boxer, Mr. Alford should be “proud” of any statement made by another black man, whether he disagrees with it or not. Bottom line, Boxer, as is most of the American left, is a bigot.

  4. Of course she’s a racist, just listen to her! Boxer thinks the significant part of his testimony is not the documented facts he presented, but his skin color.

    Instead of ignoring his skin color and addressing his facts, she ignores his facts and tries to counter his skin color by saying I have more black people than you!

    Liberalism is inherently racist.

  5. I was hoping that woman was telling her to STFU, but I guess not. She kept going down that road even telling him that his veteran status doesn’t matter.

  6. I’ll bet Sen. Inhofe was doing everything he could to keep from laughing out loud. Of course, that’s probably the case anytime the committee meets.

  7. One would think that by now, Californians would have put up SOMEONE in the primary to defeat her or fielded a Republican strong enough to put her on notice. As Patterson says, she has such a long line of embarrassing statements that would make perfect advertisements against her. But as for identity politics, there are, sadly, a few here who practice them. Collectivism is a disease.

  8. I would take a racist liberal anyday….than a rightwinger; rightwingers are out of their mind. Anyway, socialism is coming to america.

  9. Meanwhile, the Clown Senator from Minnesota asks Sonia Sotomayor what she thinks of Perry Mason.

  10. Anyone who wonders why California government has become so incompetent…. well, Boxer is the typical example of the politicians that from the most part have been running this sate for the last thirty years.

  11. Buried underneath Babs’s racial condescension is the Democrat faith in Underpants Gnomes Economic.

    1. Pass Draconian Cap and Trade Legislation.

    2. ???

    3. Millions of Jobs.

  13. That was a nice smack-down by Mr. Alford.

    Any bets he’s NOT a Democrat?

    Comment by Richard — July 17, 2009 @ 12:52 pm - July 17, 2009

  14. Joe Biden is another economic illiterate; making the absurd claim that spending more money is necessary to avoid bankruptcy.

    Richard, I don’t care if he is a Democrat; I’d prefer him immensely over the two current dumbasses serving as Maryland Senators.

  15. V, are they worse than Boxer? Wait, is that possible?

    Comment by Sonicfrog — July 17, 2009 @ 1:05 pm - July 17, 2009

  16. Boxer is just happy Al Franken showed up so she can stand next to someone who makes her look less stupid. (Thanks, Minnesota.)

    As for MD, they have evil, senile troll-doll Babs Mikulski … who is not just stupid, but also has a reputation for being just plain nasty. Then, there’s Ben Cardin, who is a party hack who just warms his seat and does what he’s told.

    Comment by V the K — July 17, 2009 @ 1:15 pm - July 17, 2009

  17. Mr Alford was wrong to call her Ma’am . Ma’am denotes respect… think Senator was correct.

  18. #4 – “Liberalism is inherently racist.”

    Actually, liberalism is a mental disorder. See the following examples:

    1. Barbara Boxer (as embeded in the video)
    2. Al Franken (per V the K’s comment in #9)
    3. Joe Biden (per V the K’s comment in #14)
    4. Henny Penny in #8 – she would rather have “a racist liberal any day” versus a conservative.

    That comment alone is worth a blog posting (hint to Dan and/or Bruce).

    Regards,
    Peter H.

  19. Liberal politicians do not much care for distinctions in individual identities, but focus rather on “collective” will and action. Why should they much care for distinctions in individual identities within members of particular minority groups?

    Comment by Scott Spiegel — July 17, 2009 @ 3:03 pm - July 17, 2009

  20. I wondered whether she always talked so slowly; it seems like she’s talking to a six-year-old child instead of an intelligent adult. Her tone is condescending enough without her whipping out that NAACP resolution.

  21. Boxer is an embarrassment to California.

    Comment by Andrew — July 17, 2009 @ 4:42 pm - July 17, 2009

  22. Here’s another, Peter H: Claire McCaskill hides behind locked doors and blinds and calls police when anti-ObamaCare protesters show up at her office.

  23. I would take a racist liberal anyday….than a rightwinger; rightwingers are out of their mind. Anyway, socialism is coming to america.

    Of course you would, liberals take other peoples money and things and give them to you. You are a sponge, a common thief without the courage or character to steal things for yourself.

    Comment by American Elephant — July 17, 2009 @ 5:53 pm - July 17, 2009

  24. What is with all these gays arguing and standing up to Democrats? Blacks fleeing the liberal Democrat plantation? Are there free thinking independent minds still in America? The leftist Democrat Obamaphiles prefer everyone march along, lock step, mumble something like “yes we can”…….yes masssa. Dopey liberals, mind numbed. Boxer, Biden, Sebelius, Napaltano, Geithner. Are they gaffe machinges or just dumb as rocks.

  25. Bad day for Boxer I wonder if anyone has told her yet…

  26. This is exactly the kind of crap that drove me away from the Democrat party and liberalism.

  27. I’m laying off Biden. I think he’s showing signs of dementia and Alzheimer. On second though, that’s normal for him.

    Comment by Sonicfrog — July 17, 2009 @ 9:16 pm - July 17, 2009

  28. I’m going to a Conservative Forum of Silicon Valley meeting in August to hear Chuck DeVore speak – he’s running against Boxer. I know very little about him, but I intend to find out more and I’m praying he’s a good alternative because these Liberal politicians are causing me to rant incoherently at myself!

    BTW, the Conservative Forum of Silicon Valley has been growing rapidly since the election! That’s Hope I can believe in!
