House Democrats Actually Took Course on How to Use the Race Card to Achieve Their Goals

Okay.  Show of hands.  Who even blinked when they read that headline?

Dems have made a career out of playing the race card to justify their policies and careers.

File this under “Things We’ve Always Assumed”.

Via Beltway Confidential:

House Democrats received training this week on how to address the issue of race to defend government programs, according to training materials obtained by The Washington Examiner.
The prepared content of a Tuesday presentation to the House Democratic Caucus and staff indicates that Democrats will seek to portray apparently neutral free-market rhetoric as being charged with racial bias, conscious or unconscious.
In her distributed remarks, Maya Wiley of the Center for Social Inclusion criticized “conservative messages [that are] racially ‘coded’ and had images of people of color that we commonly see used” and proposed tactics for countering the Republicans’ (presumably) racially-coded rhetoric.

Wiley then goes on to show people how to really use racist code words and actions, because well, she’s obviously a racist.

Wiley, who did not respond to the Examiner’s inquiries yesterday, offered this warning to Democrats about talking to “someone [who] opposes racial justice” but could support Democratic policies: “Don’t make the mistake of telling them they’re in the problem. It’s emotional connection, not rational connection that we need.”

To that end, Wiley proposed the use of “race explicit” anecdotes to illustrate problems like the economic crisis. “Explain how each racial group is affected (recognize the unique pain of each group), but start with people who are White,” she wrote in her distributed remarks. “Then raise racial disparities.” For example, she offered the line: “Homeownership is the American Dream. It hurts the same to lose your home if you’re White, Asian, Latino or Black.”

Wiley urged Democrats to appeal to “white swing voters while building support among voters of color.” She explained that Democratic outreach to white voters needs to communicate that “people of color are in pain and it’s the same pain I, as a White person, would or do feel. It’s [about] humanizing people of color.”

Marion Barry Wins Democratic Primary, Vows to Address Dirty Asians

April 5, 2012 at 11:00 am (Asian, Business, Crack, Democrat, Dirty, Marion Barry, Primary, Washington D.C.)

How does this man continue to get elected?  What exactly is in the water down in D.C.?

Via NBC Washington:

While celebrating his Democratic primary victory in Ward 8 Tuesday night, D.C. Councilman Marion Barry delivered a remark apparently critical of Asian business owners.

Barry spoke of changes in the ward, saying he’s worked hard for economic development in the city’s poorest ward and will continue to do so and saying something needs to be done about Good Hope Road and Martin Luther King Avenue.

He also seemed to criticize Asian shop owners who operate many small stores in the District.

“We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops,” Barry said. “They ought to go. I’m going to say that right now. But we need African-American businesspeople to be able to take their places, too.”

Yes, because the biggest problem facing Washington is ‘dirty Asian businesses’.

How about cleaning out crackhead politicians?  And for those who will want to jump the gun and call that statement racist, here is an FBI photo of Marion Barry smoking crack…
