Harry Reid: The Symbolism of the Racism That Permeates the Democratic Party

It wasn’t long ago when the liberals, like vultures, went after Republicans for what was called racist remarks or inuendos. These attacks have been going on for decades, even as far as the presidency of Ronald Reagan where the Left accused Reagan of racism when he decided togive his first campaign speech in Philadelphia, Mississippi where three civil rights workers were murdered in the 60s. That was considered racist.

When Ronald Reagan reversed a denial of tax-exempt status on Bob Jones University which did not allow inter-racial dating, Reagan was considered a racist. Let’s not forget at the same time that schools like Clark Univerity, Fisk University, Hampton University were for the Black population only.

Then there was Trent Lott’s statement at Strom Thermond’s 100th birthday party where he  said:

“I want to say this about my state: When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We’re proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn’t have had all these problems over all these years, either.”

No where was Lott talking about the era of racism that existed when Thurmond was Senator. No where was he talking about the era of racism of the Democratic Governor of Alabama, George Wallace.

What Trent was talking about was Thurmond’s fight against Big Government that had started with the New Deal and and culiminated with the Great Society. But the liberals could only concentrate on the era Thurmond lived in instead of mentioning his fight against racism.

Yet while labeling Republicans racist, the Democratic Party gives their own a pass.

“I’ll have those n*ggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” — Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One according Ronald Kessler’s Book, “Inside The White House

(On New York) “K*ketown.” — Harry Truman in a personal letter

“I think one man is just as good as another so long as he’s not a n*gger or a Chinaman. Uncle Will says that the Lord made a White man from dust, a nigger from mud, then He threw up what was left and it came down a Chinaman. He does hate Chinese and Japs. So do I. It is race prejudice, I guess. But I am strongly of the opinion Negroes ought to be in Africa, Yellow men in Asia and White men in Europe and America.” Harry Truman (1911) in a letter to his future wife Bess

“There’s some people who’ve gone over the state and said, ‘Well, George Wallace has talked too strong about segregation.’ Now let me ask you this: how in the name of common sense can you be too strong about it? You’re either for it or you’re against it. There’s not any middle ground as I know of.” — Democratic Alabama Governor George Wallace (1959)

Yet when Senators like Harry Reid makes a remark about Obama praising him for being “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,” the Liberals gave him a pass. It would seem that if you’re a Liberal than making such comments are considered acceptable. It must be if we didn’t see Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson up in arms over the comments.

And it’s comments like these and from Biden (clean and articulate) as well as Bill Clinton’s comments that Obama would have been serving tables a year before, that don’t seem to generate any angst in the media and has been apparently deemed acceptable. This is the new racism in the Democratic Party and it has their “Goodhousekeeping seal of approval” on it.

[UPDATE} Speaking about the good ole Reverand Al Sharpton – he raised his head and decided to make a statement. And of course, he didn’t disappoint the Democrats.

I have learned of certain unfortunate comments made by Senator Reid regarding President Barack Obama and have spoken with Senator Reid about those comments. While there is no question that Senator Reid did not select the best word choice in this instance, these comments should not distract America from its continued focus on securing healthcare or creating jobs for its people. Nor should they detract from the unquestionable leadership role Senator Reid has played on these issues or in the area of civil rights. Senator Reid’s door has always been open on hearing from the civil rights community on these issues and I look forward to continue to work with Senator Reid wherever possible to improve the lives of Americans everywhere.

Didn’t the same Al Sharpton call Joe Wilson’s “You lie” the Kanye West of Congress?”
