It remains a mystery in my eyes, how liberals and Democrats fail to recognize that by constantly playing the race card in every possible scenario, it ends up being patronizing to the minority group that they are actually trying to defend.
Case in point – voter ID. Liberals would have you believe that getting a free photo identification from the local DMV, and making it necessary to vote in elections, would suppress the minority vote. Now, the only way you can possibly believe that statement is true, is if in your own little head, you actually believe that those minority groups are too incompetent to attain the proper identification necessary to vote. It’s the only way that statement rings true.
And now we have this…
Via Gateway Pundit:
First off, Rice’s actions amount to one of two things. She either knowingly lied about what had happened in Benghazi, or she was used as a puppet by the administration to feed the public their talking points. If she lied, then she is unfit to serve in her current post, let alone as a replacement for Hillary Clinton. If she was used to promote the administration’s lies, then they have also denigrated this African-American woman by using her as a tool rather than letting her do her job.
Second, to come to the conclusion that Rice is being attacked because she is a black woman, is to view her with a condescending level of tunnel vision. The very people that are criticizing her are doing so because they view her as Susan Rice, United States Ambassador to the United Nations. The people that are defending her do not look at her in the same manner. Instead they patronizingly view her as a poor defenseless black woman incapable of standing up to her critics or defending her position.
When Susan Rice attained the tremendous heights that she has throughout her career, do you think she’d rather have been viewed as a successful overall individual, or do you think she’d prefer to be viewed as the career product of being a poor black woman?
There couldn’t be anything less racial about the entire Benghazi cover up. And yet Democrats feel they still have to play that card. The left consistently turns race into a political ploy. If you’re a minority, don’t you feel a little bit embarrassed every time they do it?
President Obama hasn’t seen a race card he’s not willing to play, and that includes his personal vendetta against Fox News. The petty feud has almost entirely been fabricated in the President’s mind, as he seems fixated on the sole network in mainstream media that isn’t in the tank for him.
President Barack Obama blamed Fox News for his political woes in a private meeting with labor leaders in 2010, saying he was “losing white males” who tune into the cable outlet and “hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7,” according to journalist David Corn’s new book, “Showdown.”
In “Showdown: The Inside Story of How Obama Fought Back Against Boehner, Cantor, and the Tea Party” — which hits bookstores on Tuesday — the Washington bureau chief for Mother Jones chronicles the White House from the 2010 midterm elections to the start of the 2012 campaign. The book focuses on key moments of Obama’s presidency, such as Osama bin Laden’s assassination, the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the Arab Spring, the debt ceiling crisis, and the president’s dealings with Congress.
Corn writes that after the midterm elections, Obama told labor leaders in December 2010 that he held Fox partly responsible for him “losing white males.”
“…Fed by Fox News, they hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7, and it begins to seep in…The Republicans have been at this for 40 years. They have new resources, but the strategy is old,” Corn recounted Obama as saying.
I’ve watched Fox News for quite some time (believe it or not I used to watch Olbermann), and I’ve never heard them once say Obama is a Muslim, let alone 24/7.
This just goes to prove one thing… Obama lies so frequently, he’s even willing to convince himself of things that are untrue.
