Patronizing Democrats – Susan Rice Only Being Criticized Because She’s Black

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:

Representative Marcia L. Fudge the next Chair of the 43-member Congressional Black Caucus released a statement today defending Ambassador Susan Rice.
Twelve liberal Democratic women in the House embarrassed themselves today by defending dunce Susan Rice over her bizarre Libya comments.
They said Rice was being attacked because she’s black.
ABC News reported:
A dozen female members of the House staunchly defended U.N. ambassador Susan Rice against Republican criticism over her remarks on the deadly Sept. 11 Libya attack, suggesting the GOP lawmakers’ comments were racist and sexist.
“It is a shame that anytime something goes wrong, they pick on women and minorities,” Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, the next chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, told reporters Friday at a Capitol Hill news conference.
Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham earlier this week called Rice untrustworthy and unqualified to be the nation’s top diplomat if President Barack Obama chooses her to succeed Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. The two vowed to block any Senate confirmation if she is nominated.

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?

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

May 11, 2012 at 3:31 pm (Asian, Black, Center for Social Inclusion, Democrats, Government, Latino, Maya Wiley, Race Card, Racial Code, Racism, Republicans, White)

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.”

Obama Blames Fox News for "Losing White Males"

March 19, 2012 at 3:58 pm (David Corn, Fox News, Muslim, President Obama, Race, Race Card, Racism, Republicans, Showdown)

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.

Via Politico:

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.
