When All Else Fails: Blame it on Race

Here we go again..

To some degree, I feel like I'm beating the issue of "Criticism towards Susan Rice = Racism/Sexism" to death but what is a fella to do when Pathetic Lefties keep giving me such great material? Give'em Hell that's what!

Enter the Pathetic Leftie that is the target of my sharp tongue tonight: MSNBC anchor Toure. I vaguely remember this anchor from a moment during the Presidential election in which he claimed Republican candidate Mitt Romney was attempting a "niggerization" of the President (and I apologize for using such an idiotic term but it provides valuable context to Toure's behavior/attitude).

Now if this was the only race-related gaffe Toure had made, it would have blown over and everyone would have forgotten about it, much like MSNBC's programming. But he didn't just stop there, just a few days ago he accused Senators McCain and Graham (who are not my favorite people in the world either) of basing much of their criticism towards U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice on her race and/or sex. (1) Did he provide any real evidence to back such a bold claim? Of course not. Instead, he like many other Pathetic Lefties, speak only of "code words" that when used by GOP politicians (not Democrats mind you!), suggest evil intentions. Forget about their legitimate questions about how she handled the official US response to the Benghazi Attack and the whole administration for that matter. No, it must be about race, that's the only logical explanation for Pathetic Lefties; which makes them no better than Right-Wingnuts like the "good" people at WND who still want everyone to believe the President stole the election via widespread voter fraud or something other crap.

These kind of folks are reminiscent of folks who saw Commies around every corner, whether it be in their local community or in the halls of Congress itself. Except in this case, Toure and others like him, see racists and Klansman everywhere they look and should anyone dare to criticize an African-American Democrat (especially critics who are stereotypical 'old white guys'), they immediately and confidently point towards the scourge of racism/sexism as the only logical answer.

If these folks could only see how ridiculous and pathetic such a attitude is, they would be ashamed of themselves. If recent history is any measure however, it's unlikely Toure will ever see anything but glory and righteousness in what he is trying to pull. I defer to Dan Gainor who wrote a piece dedicated to Toure's idiocy for Fox News to sum up Toure's recent adventures in looking for racism in all the wrong places (I know, but that's how bad this crap is, even the folks at Fox News make a good point!) : MSNBC Anchor Toure makes shameful attack on McCain

Ultimately, these folks are one the bigger problems with politics in America today. Whether they be Pathetic Lefties or Tea-Baggers (See Judson Phillips/WND), these idiots are so partisan in their political views that nothing useful ever comes out of their mouths and yet, thanks to cable news and the Internet, some folks will hear what they have to say and actually buy it. Now I am not saying these idiots aren't entitled to Freedom of Speech, just that when they're spouting this crap, they should probably wear signs that say something like: I'm an Extreme Partisan & I have No Shame!

Is that so much to ask? Probably. Sadly, folks like Toure will continue to speaking this garbage until their faces turn blue and sadly, some good people out there are going to believe it. All the more reason for us to point out these people out for what they are: Pathetic. The sooner we spread the message of these folks the better off we ALL will be.

For those of you who may think my piece is a little harsh, I leave you with the words of President Harry Truman:

“I never did give them hell. I just told the truth, and they thought it was hell.”

If this was the first time TourĂ© played the race card, he might look less silly. But he doesn’t have a race card, he has filled the deck with them – just not a full deck. Everything is about race to him – re-electing Obama, anything involving the GOP or white people in general. Even he admits it. “Part of my job when I speak about politics is to speak up for black people and say things black people need said,” he wrote in a piece called “How To Read Political Racial Code.” Anything that might make Obama look bad -- words like "welfare," "crime," “Muslim" and "socialist" – are all racial code.
TourĂ© again played the race card saying back in September the election was all about America’s view of the races. “But an Obama victory in 2012 would say something even more profound about how far our country has come. Granted, Obama’s election (or not) is merely one of many factors that will tell us where we are on race in America. But it is a big one,” he explained. He then went into a long, convoluted rant involving race, “The Matrix” and whether Obama was a “superhero.”
He dumped the whole deck out, bashing “white people” as a group on Oct. 5, during a spot with equally loony MSNBC anchor Martin Bashir. “If you just have a bunch of white people, you’re gonna come up with alternate realities that don’t make any sense,”
