Ed Schultz, host of MSNBC’s “The Ed Show,” has revealed the virulent racist streak that runs through liberalism but is rarely talked about or criticized by the appropriate groups, purely because racists like Schultz hold the “proper” political views in the eyes of the Rainbow Coalition, the NAACP, and other liberal special interest groups.
On recent broadcasts, Schultz has bloviated about how black Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is pandering to “white Republicans out there who don’t like black folks.” That would be quite a trick, if that were even possible.
Schultz’ comment exposes the left’s overconfidence in their foothold among black voters. Even with the nation’s first black president in the White House, Schultz apparently believes it’s okay to play the race card and accuse a party that currently favors Cain over Mitt Romney, of racism.
If the GOP actually were as racist as Schultz suggests, Cain would’t be surging right now, regardless of the fact that he has presented what is consistently the most solid and conservative political message of any candidate running.
Schultz also railed against Senator Jim DeMint, whom Cain has mentioned as a potential running mate if he wins the nomination. Yet those comments aren’t even worth wasting virtual space on. Maybe Schultz simply needs to be sent a bunch of Christmas Cards to cheer him up.
