It’s official, we can’t criticize any black Democrat without it being racist.

Dem Rep. James Clyburn: GOP Letter Criticizing Susan Rice Uses Racial “Code Words”…

It’s official, we can’t criticize any black Democrat without it being racist.
Via The Hill:
Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) said Tuesday a letter from nearly 100 House Republicans urging President Obama not to appoint Susan Rice as Secretary of State employed racially-charged “code words” to make its case.
The letter, signed by 97 House Republicans, says Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, “is widely viewed as having either willfully or incompetently misled the American public in the Benghazi matter” — language Clyburn saw as racially loaded.
“You know, these are code words,” Clyburn, the third-ranking Democrat in the House, told CNN. “We heard them during the campaign, during this recent campaign we heard Sen. Sununu calling our president lazy, incompetent, these kinds of terms that those of us, especially those of us who were grown and raised in the South, we would hear these little words and phrases all of our lives and we’d get insulted by them.
“Susan Rice is as competent as anybody you will find, and just to paste that word on her causes problems with people like [incoming Congressional Black Caucus chairwoman] Marcia Fudge and certainly cause a big problem with me,” he added.
In a press conference earlier this week, Fudge said she believed criticism of Rice contained “a clear… sexism and racism.”

  1. Democrats are so transparent and disingenuous. They kept slavery and ultimately Jim Crow laws as long as they could, yet they say Conservatives are racist. They want the border porous for the obvious vote of Hispanics, but would reverse their opinion in a heartbeat if the Hispanics tended to vote conservative. They cry foul if highly educated immigrants get to go to the head of the line, yet want to pay for entitlements for the poor and dependent immigrants. They expect religious people to swallow abortion, gay marriage, and the communist agenda, yet become hysterical if children express opinions about God and country. I wonder if liberalism isn't the same thing as dishonesty and dishonor.
