You know, Democrats are like collection agencies; they never really leave you alone, ever.
For ages, Democrats claimed the GOP was racist for being “too white.” Then they were racist for not supporting their own black candidates like the moderate General Colin Powell. And now that an genuine conservative black candidate is emerging in the form of Herman Cain, who is the apparent front runner in most areas nationwide for the GOP presidential nomination, have Dems backed off their racism claims against the GOP?
Perish the thought.
Now, we’re racist because we do support a black candidate for president.
Dem strategist Karen Finney blathered on like so recently on MSNBC:
One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy. I think he giving that base a free pass. And I think they like him because they think he’s a black man who knows his place. I know that’s harsh, but that’s how it sure seems to me.
She’s joined in similar sentiment by Democratic Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings, who uttered this hate-speech recently:
I think when [members of the Tea Party] can vote for a Herman Cain and hear him say the things that he says they feel like, ‘Well, you know, I can, I support this guy and…so it shows that I’m not racist and I’m supportive.
Wow… and here I thought Herman Cain was garnering support because of his specific policy solutions, such as his 9-9-9 plan on simplifying the tax code as a first step toward a Fair Tax system. Or that he’s a red-blooded conservative with solid ideas on what he’s do if elected to change the course of this country’s economy. Or maybe even that he is a guy who’s well-qualified for his leadership in the private sector as well as the public sector, even though he’s never run for elective office and can therefore run as a Washington outsider ready to reform government.
Nah, none of that counts. It’s just our racism again. I should have known. Thanks, liberals.
