It’s a brush Democrat and their media cohorts use to tar every Republican, especially a President. Throughout his life Donald Trump was always praised for helping blacks, and was never accused of being a racist, that is until he ran for, and won, the presidency. Now all we hear is that he’s the worst man in the world.
But it’s all straight out of the Democrats’ playbook. Senator Harry Reid once said that “racism has long been prevalent in Republican politics.” Congressman Steve Israel, at the time serving as DCCC Chair, said, “To a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism.”
Oh how they develop amnesia so quickly! But forget about the long racist history of the Democratic Party; recent years have seen plenty of examples of Democratic racism and race-baiting, which is itself a textbook case of Freud’s psychological projection:
- Joe Biden said to a predominantly black audience in 2012 that Republicans will “put y’all back in chains.”
- Biden said of Indian-Americans: “You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”
- Hillary Clinton also made a gas station joke about Indian-Americans when she said Gandhi “ran a gas station down in St. Louis for a few years. Mr. Gandhi, do you still go to the gas station? Lot of wisdom comes out of that gas station.”
- Barack Obama, in discussing racism, referred to his own grandmother as a “typical white person.”
- Harry Reid said in 2008 that Obama was a great candidate because he was a “light-skinned” African-American with “no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”
- Reid also insulted Asians at an Asian Chamber of Commerce event, saying the “Asian population is so productive. I don’t think you’re smarter than anybody else, but you’ve convinced a lot of us you are.” He also said he had trouble “keeping my Wongs straight.”
- Dick Harpootlian, Democratic Party Chairman of South Carolina, said in 2013 he hoped Nikki Haley got sent “back to wherever the hell she came from” so “this country can move forward.” He also compared her to Hitler’s mistress.
- Senator Robert Byrd said “white n*****s” during a television interview on Fox News.
- Former CBS Newsman Mike Wallace was caught during a hot mic moment in 2001 saying blacks and Hispanics were “too busy eating watermelon and tacos” to fill out a bank application.
With most of these cases, not only was there no media explosion, almost nothing was ever said or done. And only in a handful was the liberal perpetrator forced to issue a half-hearted apology.
The race issue is perhaps the biggest case of a double-standard in America today and it’s time to stop falling for it.
