Is there anyone left in the white Democratic Senate Leadership that isn’t a former KKK Grand Dragon or a KKK-wannabee?
Obama had an advantage because he was “light-skinned” and had “no Negro dialect” — until he wanted to use it.
Recall what brought down then-Senate Majority Leader (REPUBLICAN-MS) Trent Lott:
Trent Lott resigned his post as Majority Leader in 2002 after praising Strom Thurmond’s 1948 presidential candidacy during a birthday celebration for the 100-year-old South Carolinian.
That was it. Lott was praising an old man, who yes, was a racist about the same time that a majority of Americans were. But Lott was kicked to the curb, because he is a Republican. Democrats, meanwhile, have fostered racism throughout the past 30 years and their Senate Leadership (at least) is chock full of ’em.
And of course Obama accepted Reid’s apology — he is a Democrat. But recall what Obama said after the Don Imus racism controversy:
“He didn’t just cross the line,” Obama said. “He fed into some of the worst stereotypes that my two young daughters are having to deal with today in America. The notions that as young African-American women — who I hope will be athletes — that that somehow makes them less beautiful or less important. It was a degrading comment. It’s one that I’m not interested in supporting.”
To be a Republican racist is a mortal sin, to be a Democrat racist means you are the leaders and statesmen of the Party. Disgusting.
HARRY REID SHOULD GO NOW.
