During the recent Jewish Heritage Celebration at the White House…

One has to wonder IF during a celebration of Black History month at the White House Thomas made a statement about returning all Black citizens to Africa, how that would be interpreted by the liberal/progressive/Left ?  In all likelihood we will never know, since overt racism like that would be quickly condemned by the Left and rightfully so.

From ABC News:

Former Clinton special counsel and spokesman Lanny J. Davis issued a statement Sunday calling on the White House to suspend Thomas’ privileges in the White House press room, and for Hearst to consider a similar suspension of her position as a nationally syndicated columnist.

“Of course Helen has the right as a private citizen under the First Amendment to speak her mind, even as an anti-Jewish bigot — but not as a member, much less privileged member with a reserved seat, in the WH press corps,” Davis wrote.

Indeed as an American citizen Thomas does have the right to speak any misinformed opinion she may hold, yet when the line of private citizen crosses over and affords her the platform of a “privileged” news correspondence with access to spew her ill-informed opinions something has to give.

Being a part of the White House press corps allows Thomas a position of power in the media.  Her skewed beliefs can be presented as fact and questions can be slanted toward increased anti-semantic intolerance, with little to no moderation.  I have teetered between having her White House press pass revoked, in essence disallowing her a platform to speak, to removing her from the esteemed “Dean” of the corps and relegating her to a backroom seat.  On one hand moments like this allow for discussion of the insidious nature of racism, yet how often do we as society do we allow those who have power to continually perpetuate ignorance?

So will the left call Helen Thomas out for her comments?  Or will them remain mute, condoning the ignorance through their silence?

In adding some depth to this question, take a look at Helen Thomas during a White House press conference as she questions Gibbs immediately after the Israeli incident with the Flotilla.  Prior to knowing   facts surrounding the incident Thomas castigates  the administration for not condemning Israel.

Lieutenant Colonel Allen West on Harry Reid’s racist comments:

h/t Dr. Kate

Greetings,

The revelation of Senator Harry Reid’s comments referencing “negro talk” is just indicative of the true sentiment elitist liberals, and indeed the Democratic party, have toward black Americans. The history of the Democrat party is one of slavery, secession, segregation, and now socialism. It is this new aged socialism born from the Johnson Great Society programs that have castigated blacks as victims needing government dependency. One need only to look upon the city of Detroit to ascertain what liberal social welfare policies have produced for the inner city… the new plantation for black Americans.

Harry Reid fingerFrom the party which attempted to prevent the Civil Rights Act, the beast has risen its ugly head again as Senate Majority Leader Henry Reid shows his racism.

WASHINGTON – The top Democrat in the U.S. Senate apologized on Saturday for comments he made about Barack Obama‘s race during the 2008 presidential bid and are quoted in a yet-to-be-released book about the campaign.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada described in private then-Sen. Barack Obama as “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” Obama is the nation’s first African-American president.

“I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words. I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African-Americans for my improper comments,” Reid said in a statement released after the excerpts were first reported on the Web site of The Atlantic.

Quick shuffle there Henry, but to late the racist ideology you own has been exposed.  Since LBJ, the Democratic Party with its War on Poverty has continued to enslaved segments of the Africian-American, as well as other lower income individuals in the population, through enticed dependency on social programs.

“Guess I’m Racist”

Posted by courage On December - 8 - 2009

YouTube Preview ImageHow many times have those who question the President’s positions been called “racist?”  I know I have heard the words spill out from some Kool-Aid drinkers stained lips.  Admittedly the first time I heard this false charge, I was taken back and immediately felt the need to defend my honor.  Yet the smug look on the name caller’s face spoke to something else, not a concern of morality or lack there of, rather it was a “gotta” moment where they now had the upper hand; they played the race card and won. 

Any dissent from the Obama ideology gave the Democrat,  the self-righteous permission to attack the dissenting individual’s opinion.

The Democrats have made the mantra of racism a battle cry, starting back early in the Democratic primaries with the pseudo-charges which were leveled by the Obama champion against Clinton and continued through the general election.  But that is now history, the problem is that the Dems continue to play the race card any time there is opposition to a policy proposal.  They use the charge of racism much like  a schoolyard taunt; void of precise explanation as to their meaning yet predictable as rebuttal, the rhetoric is meant to shame an individual in to  silence.
Which brings us to the disservice the false claims of “racism” have on actual racism which occurs to varying levels in society.    Much like the boy who cried wolf too often, the term racism has now lost impact, it has become diluted and meaningless.  What the Democrats have done is erase a societal boundary which drew a line between acceptable behavior and scorned behavior.


WE-THE-PEOPLE are expected to blindly follow regardless … The Democratic use of the term racism is unethical at best and harmful to society at worst.
Thomas Jefferson said, “dissent is the highest form of patriotism.”  And if the Dems want to term that racist instead of the patriotism which it is, then I according to their skewed definition am racist.

Will the Government LET You Sell YOUR Home?

Posted by courage On September - 26 - 2009

EarthOn June 26, 2009 the House passed the “American Clean Energy and Security Act HR 2454”, on a vote of 219-212.  This bill is more commonly called Cap and Trade. For those unfamiliar with this bill, see CourageToSee’s handout on the issue here. Soon the Senate will be taking up the “Embrace Mother Earth” mantra as they develop their own “environmental justice” legislation to combat the pseudoscience of climate change, which I have previously written about here.

Buried in the kumbaya calls to save Mother Earth are stipulations which should have every homeowner concerned.  From Politico:

The bill contains 397 new regulations. One of them would affect almost everyone who buys or sells a home. If Waxman-Markey becomes law, homes for sale that qualify as “federally related transactions” — which is almost all of them — would be required to undergo an environmental inspection.

Big Brother will be knock, knock, knocking on your door, checking appliances, furnace, A/C unit, windows, insulation and doors, for all intensive purposes every structural aspect of your home.

Congressional Black Caucus calls “racism”

Posted by courage On September - 16 - 2009

During the House hearing for Representative Joe Wilson, the Congressional Black Caucus suggested:

“…that a failure to rebuke the South Carolina Republican would be tantamount to supporting the most blatant form of organized racism in American history.”

For disagreeing with Presidential policy?  Okay, granted there is a level of decorum when the President addresses joint sessions of Congress.  The respect offered is meant to show the highest esteem for the office of the Presidency.  So yes, I agree that according to Jeffersonian Rules which cover decorum afforded the President, Representative Wilson was wrong, yet can I remind the Left since they seem to have some short-term memory issues… Congressman Wilson apologized directly to the President before the end of the evening and that the President accepted his apology.  This should be the end of the story.. but NOOOOOO…
