The Patronizing Racism of the Democratic Plantation...

Liberal Democrats and the Liberal Mainstream Media are completely ignoring the facts when it comes to the ongoing racist myth that Republicans and Conservatives don't care about...or don't represent...or can't relate to Blacks in America today. It's the political Left in this country that promotes the downtrodden and discards the successful. Why?

Democrats need people of all races to feel that it's the government that should be taking care of them. The black community especially, however, is very poorly served by liberal politicians that are merely pandering for a vote, and that don't want to see blacks rise up and be successful for fear that success might create a greater understanding and appreciation for Republican/Conservative values...God forbid.

There is no shortage of great commentary on the subject of the Democratic Plantation. The tide may be turning. Here is just a sample:

Rainbow Coalition racism, by Salena Zito. (Feb. 12, 2006)

...Racism is based on fear and fear makes people behave in ways they might not normally consider. The Democratic Party is fearful of losing its black-voter base, so it attacks. But the same bile it hurls on a daily basis at white Republicans comes out racist when it attacks black Republicans...

Just ask Condi Rice. Numerous unflattering labels have been hurled in her direction.

Something to consider, though. The superheros of the black movement -- Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton -- are noticeably absent when a black Republican is attacked.

They have no problem donning their race-card capes when a liberal black is attacked. But they had a hard time finding Maryland on the map when New York Sen. Chuck Schumer's henchmen did an illegal credit check on Michael Steele.

Where was their outrage? Their circus-like news conferences?

Oh, wait -- Steele isn't black, he's Republican...

The "D" Stands for Demagogue, by Michelle Malkin. (Jan. 18, 2006)

...These calculated moments of Democrat demagoguery illuminate liberalism's three-decade-old moral bankruptcy on issues of race. From the party's smearing of Clarence Thomas to the bigoted attacks on Condoleezza Rice and Maryland GOP Lt. Gov. Michael Steele, to its opposition to school choice for inner-city students and denigration of California businessman Ward Connerly's campaign against government racial preferences, to its latest desperate attempts to blame racism for Hurricane Katrina and to portray Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito as a red-necked bigot, the Left has offered nothing but slime and obstructionism.

Yet, there isn't a day that goes by without Democrats effectively using the race card against their opponents in every political debate ranging from education to border security to the courts. It's time for conservatives, Republicans in Washington, and minorities with half a brain to call their bluff. Stand up. Defend your honor. Don't let it pass.

Black Republicans should be able to live without fear, by Ted Hayes. (Jan. 2, 2006)

American blacks who are affiliated with the Republican Party are vigorously vilified by Democrats, especially black Democrats. Uncle Tom, sell-out, Oreo--the list of slurs is long.

But it is not only insults. I am the founder and director of a unique, progressive homeless facility in downtown Los Angeles, known as the Dome Village. Yet the 35 men, women and children and their pets who call the Dome Village home are being "evicted" from privately owned property after 12 1/2 years--apparently on account of my political beliefs and activities. You see, though I am a leading homeless activist, I am also a conservative Republican and a strong supporter of President Bush...

...It is time for American blacks to have a conversation about the phenomenon of Democrats persecuting black Republicans. Why is this happening? What is it that the Democrats don't want black folks to understand about Republicans? What is it that the Democrats don't want black folks to know about Democrats? And how is it that we have come to this point--after having endured so much--where we have ourselves curtailed the freedom of political expression through the threat of retaliatory consequences?

'Party trumps race' for Steele foes, by S.A. Miller (November 2, 2005)

Delegate Salima Siler Marriott, a black Baltimore Democrat, said Mr. Steele invites comparisons to a slave who loves his cruel master or a cookie that is black on the outside and white inside because his conservative political philosophy is, in her view, anti-black.

"Because he is a conservative, he is different than most public blacks, and he is different than most people in our community," she said. "His politics are not in the best interest of the masses of black people."

During the 2002 campaign, Democratic supporters pelted Mr. Steele with Oreo cookies during a gubernatorial debate at Morgan State University in Baltimore.
In 2001, Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. called Mr. Steele an "Uncle Tom," when Mr. Steele headed the state Republican Party. Mr. Miller, Prince George's County Democrat, later apologized for the remark.

"That's not racial. If they call him the "N' word, that's racial," Mrs. Marriott said. "Just because he's black, everything bad you say about him isn't racial."

Harry Belafonte Calls Black Republicans 'Tyrants', by Marc Morano (August 08, 2005)
Click here to read.
Celebrity activist Harry Belafonte referred to prominent African-American officials in the Bush administration as "black tyrants" at a weekend march, and he also compared the administration to Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany.

Belafonte, a featured speaker at Saturday's march in Atlanta commemorating the 40th anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act, previously ignited a political controversy in 2002 when he likened then-Secretary of State Colin Powell to a "house slave."

Belafonte used a Hitler analogy when asked about what impact prominent blacks such as former Secretary of State Powell and current Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice had on the Bush administration's relations with minorities.

"Hitler had a lot of Jews high up in the hierarchy of the Third Reich. Color does not necessarily denote quality, content or value," Belafonte said in an exclusive interview with Cybercast News Service.

"[If] a black is a tyrant, he is first and foremost a tyrant, then he incidentally is black. Bush is a tyrant and if he gathers around him black tyrants, they all have to be treated as they are being treated," he added. See Video

Who was really doing the indimidating, by Bob Parks. (August 2005)

...The Voting Rights Act extension is critical because "the same old enemies of civil rights and voting rights will always keep up their ugly activities. Race baiters and discriminators may go underground, but they never move out of town."
- Jesse Jackson (D-USA)
In rebutting Jesse Jackson's comment (of all people to talk about "race baiting") I would hope all would agree, profanity would be appropriate here....

What's most maddening is that in order for people to actually believe this bile, they would need the willing assistance from the press that either knows the truth, or is ignorant due to the lesson plans of liberal teachers and professors.

What's also maddening is that these "activists" who know better, consistently and constantly insult the intelligence of black people just to keep themselves in what semblance of power they think they have. And why to this day hasn't the evidence that voter intimidation on blacks is a myth been made truly public?

Because the truth hurts....

Liberals, Race and History:Left's House of Cards Threatened, by Thomas Sowell. (May 25, 2005)
Click here to read.
Liberal Democrats, especially, must keep blacks fearful of racism everywhere, including in an administration whose Cabinet includes people of Chinese, Japanese, Hispanic, and Jewish ancestry, and two consecutive black Secretaries of State. Blacks must be kept believing that their only hope lies with liberals.

Not only must the present be distorted, so must the past -- and any alternative view of the future must be nipped in the bud. That is why prominent minority figures who stray from the liberal plantation must be discredited, debased and, above all, kept from becoming federal judges.

Racism finds a home in white towers, by Armstrong Williams. (Dec. 2004)

Has white liberal Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., no sense of decency?

His defamatory comments about Associate Justice Clarence Thomas as a prospective chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court support a corrupt racial universe, in which the best and brightest black thinkers are blacklisted by the white liberal elite because they threaten the power base of the liberal black establishment.

The evidence is voluminous. Without a dissenting peep from the high priests of blackness, white pundits indulge in racist calumnies against black conservative stars. Pat Oliphant and Garry Trudeau deride superstar secretary-of-State designate Condoleezza Rice as a parrot or as "brown sugar." Harry Belafonte maligns the gifted, courageous and accomplished Colin Powell as an "Uncle Tom." And now Reid, minority leader of the U.S. Senate, has sneered at Thomas' qualifications for chief justice because his conservative thinking does not follow the dogmas of the anachronistic black power structure or patronizing doctrines of its white liberal counterpart.

The Left and Black Authenticity, by Winfield Myers. (Nov. 2004)

...It's hardly news that liberal elites depict liberal blacks as paragons of virtue and more, the more being the repository of sympathy and white liberal guilt. Black conservatives, however, are portrayed as traitors to their race -- Uncle Toms, backsliders, ingrates. We witnessed this with the confirmation of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court, an event that one friend characterized as our Dreyfus Affair...

The New and Improved Racism, by Ann Coulter. (Dec. 9, 2004)
Click here to read.
...Still furious about the election, liberals are lashing out at blacks. First it was Condoleezza Rice. But calling a Ph.D. who advised a sitting president during war "Aunt Jemima" apparently hasn't satiated the Democrats' rage. Even the racist cartoons didn't help. (see examples here and here)

So this week, they've turned with a vengeance to Clarence Thomas. Only the Democrats would try to distract from their racist attacks on one black Republican by leveling racist attacks against a different black Republican. If Democrats don't nip this in the bud, soon former Klanner and Democratic Sen. Bob Byrd will be their spokesman...

Bill Cosby and Clarence Thomas: The new odd couple?, by Barbara J. Stock. (July 3, 2004)
Click here to read.
It will not be long before Dr. Cosby joins the ranks of Justice Thomas as an uppity rich Black man who can no longer identify with the real problems of the average Black American. What are those problems? Lack of good jobs? No, there are good jobs available but you have to be able to read, write, and communicate in the English language to get them. That means staying in school and learning something. That means having parents who take responsibility for their children's lives and give them guidance. That means community leaders who teach Black children to grab life by the horns and stop blaming everyone else for their failures. That means they must stop blaming slavery, white America, and the system. For some, those words are heresy. Are you listening Jesse? You could learn a lot from Bill Cosby. We all could.

Democratic Racism, by Robert Alt. (September 2003)

...Who will be the next victim of the Democrats’ racism? Most likely California Supreme Court Justice Janice Rogers Brown. While the Democrats in the Senate are likely to say that they only oppose her because she is conservative, their actions will prove otherwise. Listen for comparisons of her to Clarence Thomas, and note that she will be treated much differently than was her white fellow nominee John Roberts. That Teddy’s 45 should treat Republican minorities differently is disappointing but not shocking. After all, nothing upsets Sen. Kennedy and his pals more than when those they view as intellectual slaves dares to leave the Democratic plantation.

Politically Correct Racism vs. Justice Thomas, by Larry Elder. (May 17, 2001)

Ebony, a monthly black magazine, puts out an annual list of the "100+ Most Influential Black Americans."

First, the magazine's criteria. Influential means, "1. Does the individual transcend his or her position and command widespread national influence? 2. Does the individual affect in a decisive and positive way the lives, thinking and actions of large segments of the African-American population, either by his or her position in a key group or by his or her personal reach and influence?"

Now supposedly the list neither excludes nor includes based on the influential person's ideology. "Being featured on the list," said Ebony, "does not necessarily constitute an endorsement of any particular individual or ideology." So guess which blacks never made the list?

...But it gets worse. The list excluded Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. That's right. No Thomas. But doesn't a sitting Supreme Court member, by definition, constitute one of the nine most influential persons in America, let alone the black community? But no surprise here. One now-defunct publication, called Emerge, (a black news monthly) once put on its cover a caricature of Clarence Thomas dressed as a lawn jockey, holding a lantern and sporting a big grin. The heading? "Uncle Thomas, Lawn Jockey for the Far Right." Inside we see a cartoon of a kneeling Thomas shining the shoes of fellow Justice Antonin Scalia.

So Clarence Thomas, because of his conservative ideology -- principally his opposition to affirmative action -- gets de-listed as black.

The Democratic Party's Legacy of Racism, by Mackubin T. Owens. (Dec. 2002)
Click here to read.
...It’s about time that Republicans quit pussy-footing around on the issue of race. They need to point out that in both principle and practice, the Republican Party has a far better record than the Democrats on race. Even more importantly, they need to stress that on the issues that most affect African-Americans today, the Democratic position represents racism of the most offensive sort—a patronizing racism that denigrates Blacks every bit as badly as the old racism of Jim Crow and segregation....
