When Republicans/non-Leftists say stuff like what Reid said, they get bashed by the Democrats, the Left and the Big Old Media, none of whom are bashing Reid for his own racially offensive commentary.
Trent Lott, a Republican, said far less bad stuff than that and was forced to resign. Even Obama, who doesn't think Reid's nasty racial slurs against him are a big deal, back then told the Republicans they shouldn't have Lott "representing their party" due to his simply having said something nice about a guy named Thurmond.
Well, those double-standard practicing Leftists of whatever colors, they sound like a bunch of Uncle Toms, don't they?
Now, what does the niece of Martin Luther King Jr. think?
Dr. Alveda King ain't no "Uncle Tom", unlike the doublethinking Demmies.
The Rev. Al Sharpton, the Congressional Black Caucus and the NAACP all jumped to the defense of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid after his controversial remarks about President Obama, but the niece of Martin Luther King Jr. is calling Reid's comments "sadly outrageous."Also...
"If Michael Steele or any other conservative had said anything like it, the remarks would be labeled racist and plastered over every available news outlet," Alveda King said in a statement released Tuesday.
"What would my uncle and my father think, to hear such things from one of the most powerful leaders in the country? Their 'beloved community' is sorely threatened when racism rears its ugly head once again."
Steele, the first black chairman of the Republican National Committee, is among those Republicans calling for Reid to step down. He and others say Democrats are operating by a double-standard, since they were insistent that former Senate Republican Leader Trent Lott step down in 2002 after he praised the late Sen. Strom Thurmond, a former segregationist, at his 100th birthday party.
More from Dr. King...
"(...) It’s outrageous to say that we are going to let a man have a position because he is light-skinned and he uses a Negro dialect when it is convenient.(Emphasis mine. Recommended Documentary: Maafa21: Black Genocide in the 21st Century. It's what Dr. King is talking about, and what the Big Old Media doesn't want to tell you she said, because the Big Old Media wants to promote abortion no matter what, including genocide)
“I think that’s terrible,” she said. “What he’s really saying is, ‘Now we have a White House Negro.’”
“A long time ago you had house Negros and field Negros. I don’t think people are seeing it that way,” King said in reference to terminology used during the time of American slavery. “Basically, what he is saying is, if you have light skin and a particular education, we’ll let you in the House. If not, you need to stay in the field. I’m sorry. That’s what I hear.”
“I believe Sen. Reid’s apology was a good place to start,” King said. “If he really means what he’s saying, he needs to take eugenics and genocide abortion funding out of all legislation in Washington, D.C. A lip service apology is simply that. But if his actions mean, ‘I’m not a racist, I really want to help African Americans,’ he could start by making sure that no more of us are killed through legislation that is going to pay for genocide.”
“We serve the human race. One race that is human,” King said. “Then you have Sen. Reid saying, ‘We’re going to elect somebody to office because he’s light-skinned and has the absence of a Negro dialect unless he wants to use it.’ … The beloved community is a community of one human race where we serve each other with love and compassion. And certainly any remarks like Senator Reid has issued don’t really have a place in the beloved community.”
Odd how the Big Old Media isn't interested in what Dr. King has to say, isn't it? Perhaps it's because she's not a Leftist, not a Democrat? They don't care what the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., has to say about the racist commentary of Senator Reid! Bizarre... and telling as to the mentality of the Big Old Media. I'm pretty much only finding Dr. King's input on conservative news websites.
And don't forget also...
The Democrats, until just very recently due to failing health, had amongst their sitting Senators, one Robert Byrd, a former Ku Klux Klan Grand Kleagle.
The Democratic Party brought forth the KKK as their terrorist wing, lynching not only blacks for being black, but also black and white Republicans for being Republicans.
The Democratic Party is responsible for segregation.
The Democratic Party wanted to maintain slavery, whereas the Republicans under Lincoln wanted to abolish it. That's why there was a civil war. Yep, the Democrats have always been the bad guys, and, notwithstanding the fact that they've got black folks in their party and have even gotten a black man elected President, they're apparently still condoning racism!
And that's not all, either. Right now, as we speak, in Obama's own hometown, Chicago, there's racism... open, blatant racism going on... amongst Democrats. (Do follow the links as far as you can to see what's going on). It's appalling. These Democrats are plainly... childish!
You know, as Leftism is a mental disorder that causes Leftists to think in ways that are inexplicable and ironic, if not outright delusional, it appears that black Democrats, being Leftists, are somehow deluding themselves that what's racist isn't racist as long as it's Leftists/Democrats (regardless of skin color) practicing the racism.
Who's racist, then? Hmm? Really... pretending one isn't racist doesn't make one non-racist, if one actually is racist.
The bizarre thing is that these Leftists, these Democrats... they're always claiming that it's non-Leftists, such as Republicans, who are racists.
Well, what they're really doing is practicing projection, in which they attempt to shake off their own faults by accusing others of possessing the faults instead.
So... looking at all the evidence available, who, in our analysis, is racist? Right! The Left, the Democrats, and the Big Old Media!
So don't vote Democrat! Don't listen to the Big Old Media! They're racist!
