White People Be Playing The Race Card

I'm old enough to remember when only black people called black people "Uncle Tom." Democrats, however, long expanded the category of who can play the race card and on whom. Call them equal opportunity race-card players.
As with black race-card hustlers -- say the Revs. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton or any given host on MSNB-Hee-Haw -- white race-card players label others “racist” for the crime of disagreement. As with black race-card hustlers, white race-card hustlers need not name names when accusing someone of “racism.” And, as with black race-card hustlers, the mainscream media will not bother to ask the white race-card hustler to identify said racists.
Some examples:
Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y.: When recently asked if his Republican colleagues were racist, Israel responded, "Not all of them, no. Of course not. But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism." “Not all” implies one or more is “animated by racism.” He never bothered to name names, let alone what “animated” the racist(s). The host did not ask.
Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va.: Only days ago, the soon-to-retire senator said that he can now speak out about the number of Republicans who oppose President Barack Obama because of his race: "It's an American characteristic that you don't do anything which displeases the voters, because you always have to get reelected here. I understand part of it. It has to do with -- for some, it's just we don't want anything good to happen under this president, because he's the wrong color."
Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, now a Democrat: Crist recently said that “a big reason” he switched parties was because of the way “some” people in his former party -- Republican -- treated Obama: “I couldn’t be consistent with myself and my core beliefs, and stay with a party that was so unfriendly toward the African-American president.”
Feminist attorney Gloria Allred, Democrat: After the election of George W. Bush in 2000, Colin Powell and Condi Rice, formerly with the Reagan administration, were considered likely to join the new administration. Allred, who then hosted a Los Angeles radio show, referred to them (not by name) as “Uncle Tom types.”
Former President Jimmy Carter, Democrat: He attributed opposition to Obamamcare and other Obama policies to racism. “I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama,” said Carter, “is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he's African-American. Racism ... still exists, and I think it's bubbled up to the surface because of a belief among many white people, not just in the South but around the country, that African-Americans are not qualified to lead this great country."
CNN’s Anderson Cooper: When asked by embattled Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling whether there’s much prejudice in America, CNN’s Anderson Cooper replied, “Yes. … There’s institutional prejudice” in addition to the kind “that people have in their hearts.” In fairness to Cooper, Sterling did not ask him to name any “institution” -- but it would have been helpful.
The Republicans-hate-blacks narrative remains crucial to maintaining the monolithic 95 percent Democratic black vote, without which the Democratic Party cannot succeed. Economist Thomas Sowell writes, “If Republicans can get just a fourth or a fifth of the black vote nationwide, that can shift the balance of power decisively in their favor.” As recently as 1956, nearly 39 percent of blacks voted Republican in the presidential election.
The next time a Democrat or member of media speaks darkly about these anonymous Republican “racists,” ask this question: Don’t Israel and Rockefeller, currently in office, have a duty to “out” these racists? Why allow known bigots to remain in government? Doesn’t morality require Crist, running as a Democrat for his old job as governor of Florida, to identify and help remove these racist elected officials? Aren’t these Republican “racists” -- whose IDs are being protected by their Democratic colleagues -- detrimental to the interests of the nation and serving in violation of their oath to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution? Doesn’t this oath mean protecting and defending the rights of all constituents irrespective of race -- and exposing the “racists” who refuse to do so?
Why protect them? Why conceal their identities? Out the SOBs!
But, no. Democrats would rather just brand unnamed Republicans as "racist," no matter how absurd or outlandish the charge. Given this tepid five-year-old “recovery,” the Obama-loving/leftist media/academia/Hollywood crowd cannot, during this off-year election cycle, brag about economic growth. So look for more topic-changers like “income inequality,” climate change and the eternal struggle against the unknown “racist” obstructionists who sit across the aisle.
Sigh.

Why won't these white Democrats expose the alleged racist Republicans?

HMJC commented on Monday, Jun 30, 2014 at 08:08 AM

I think the key word here is "alleged". The reality is proving someone is racist is very hard to do. Even if someone makes an off the cuff comment; can you really brand this person a racist? Oprah has been busted using the "N" word repeatedly; does this mean she is racist? I don't think so; just ignorant for perpetuating an offensive stereotype. I digress... as far as making an accusation that someone is racist; it carries a double edged sword. The accused can grandstand and state that the accuser is just trying to discredit them due to there being "nothing else" to attack. Not saying I agree with it; but trying to look at it objectively.

One thing the Dems consistently refuse to admit is that it is just as racist to vote FOR somebody because of the color of their skin as it is to vote AGAINST a person because of the color of their skin. This nation is more polarized then ever since Obama became president, in large measure because his supporters claim that every criticism made by a non-black is "racist," and every criticism made by a black makes the critic an "Uncle Tom."

This president has done NOTHING to head off these false claims. In fact, he - by act and omission - actually ENCOURAGES the race-baiting. He obviously believes it helps him politically, but he is VERY short-sighted in his thinking. Over the long run, it does a tremendous amount of damage to the social fiber of this country.
