The New Politics of Discrimination

by Keith Koffler on November 26, 2012, 8:21 am

There’s a new racket in town, and President Obama is running it.

After Sen. John McCain said on the morning of November 14 that UN Ambassador Susan Rice was not qualified to be Secretary of State because of her erroneous assertions that the Benghazi consulate attack was prompted by an anti-Muslim video, the discrimination police descended, unleashed by Obama himself.

The tactic was effective. Sunday, McCain backed down.

Spurred perhaps by the success of his presidential campaign’s efforts to smear Gov. Mitt Romney, Obama had launched a counteroffensive against McCain and other critics of Rice, suggesting the boys were picking on her because she’s a girl:

But when they go after the U.N. Ambassador, apparently because they think she’s an easy target, then they’ve got a problem with me.  And should I choose, if I think that she would be the best person to serve America in the capacity of the State Department, then I will nominate her.

The comments, made during a press conference the afternoon of November 14, were paternalistic and patronizing. He would not have offerred such a defense for a male adviser.

Obama’s allies in the smear racket took the hint.

Two days later, a dozen female House members, most of them African American, charged McCain had revived the Republican war on women and that he’d added blacks to the list too.

“There is a clear sexism and racism that goes with these comments being made by unfortunately Sen. McCain and others,” said Rep. Marcia Fudge, the incoming chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Last Tuesday, Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), an African American who is the third ranking Democrat in the House, chimed in with the analysis that Republican usage of the word “incompetent” to describe Rice was a resort to racial “code words.”

By Sunday, McCain was off Rice’s case, saying she deserved a chance “to explain herself” and adding that “she’s not the problem.” Bowing to Obama’s original demand, McCain said Obama was “the problem.”

If McCain was indeed chased away from his position by a race baiting posse, it’s a sad new day in American politics.

Obama, who once sought the mantle of post-racial president, sowed the ground for this new politics by running a campaign laden with slurs against his opponent, including one by Vice President Biden, who said Romney wanted to put blacks “back in chains.”

Now that Obama put the campaign on the lowest road he could find, he appears set to place the government there too.

Why would we expect anything less than smearing and race baiting from this president. As you noted Keith, it worked for the campaign, so lets keep this Chitown smear train rolling. This train will continue to roll over decent people trying to do the right thing and the actualy working taxpayers will continue to fund this joke.

The worst thing McCain or anyone accused of this garbage can do is back down. The regime will continue to use these false smear tactics if they work. It’s shameful that race is used as a cudgel to cover up the cover ups of the Benghazi murders. Martin Luther King weeps.

I do not believe McCain is backing down. I think he wants Susas Rice interrogated under oath in the Senate.
I agree, however, with Kirsten Powers that Obama will know he is asking for trouble if he nominates her.
This will get interesting before is is over.

Don’t get me started on John McCain after the 2008 campaign! The guy practically handed the election to Obama on a silver platter. McCain loves the cameras – almost as much as Obama. When he teamed up with the wishy-washy Lindsay Graham and the Ayotte woman, it was nothing more than a political stunt. The RINOS are a party of wimps – more than willing to cave to Obama on everything including higher taxes and amnesty.

The SOS choice between Rice and Kerry is a choice between leprosy and cancer. Obama is torn between Kerry because ‘he has earned it’…and Susan Rice because she is an Obama insider. Hobson’s choice! Either way, America loses. The MB will be happy with either choice.

If MsRice is nominated and approved to be the next Sec of State, she will be seen as the AffirmativeAction Sec of State. By using a sexist and racist charge against those who oppose her. all of her accomplishments will be marginalized as second rate or unearned.

The President and the members of Congress who defended her on the basis of race and sex, and not by her credentials didn’t do her any favors.
She would be wise to decline the nomination to preserve her self-respect, dignity and her legacy.

Reply

BO’s defense of Susan Rice was not racist, it was sexist. He was defending “the poor little girl all the big men were picking on”.

His paternalistic streak was on full display and if the women who voted for Obummer were really the independent women they portray themselves as being, that paternalistic attitude – and the condescension towards women it so clearly implies – should have sent those women onto twitter screaming their heads off.

The fact it didn’t is the strongest indictment of any against our current culture.

If all those women really care about is their bodies and their perceived “security” (by having “their guy” in the White House to look out for them), then this culture is doomed. I know that’s extreme rhetoric, but it is also true. Those women are creating a mindset in this country that will acquiesce to anything “their guy” wants to do. (doesn’t matter who the person in the WhiteHouse actually is, as long as they think of him as “their guy”.) Remember, its primarily the women who raise the children in this culture.

So men, your children will be raised by these women to believe as they do – that it is the government’s job to “watch over you”.

Dangerous to give any human that kind of power over your life.
Very dangerous.

i don’t care which race or gender Susan Rice is, and deeply believe that Benghazi was a leadership disaster and a state dept debacle that should be investigated…thoroughly!

But the idea that McCain or Graham can publicly call a woman that is more educated than both combined as “Not bright or Lazy” which was a hallmark of slavery and slaves slur…is a moral disgrace.

and that most of you here, either because of party blind or ignorant of American proud history is very bizarre.

He reminds us that regardless of titles or letters of reference, the ultimate testament of one’s abilities is quality of the work you are asked to do.
Ms. Rice, in my humble opinion, was asked to announce without equivocation, that the Embassy attack was a one off, out of control demonstration by some folks who were upset at a video. For an less than transparent administration, she therefore, performed flawlessly.
Unfortunately our enemies didn’t the Embassy raid that way and for that we are less safe as a nation.

The trio of RINOs (McCain, Graham, and Ayotte) give Republicans a bad name. It is dispiriting to see how they flop around like a fish out of water whenever this demagogue sends out his choir of race hustlers.

Susan Rice is nothing more than a left wing hack. She has a long history of being rewarded for her wordsmithing skills. Clinton promoted her for removing any reference to “genocide” and “ethnic cleansing” from government documentation concerning Rwanda because the murderous rampage was politically inconvenient for him. Won’t be surprised if the messiah of the left promotes her for the newspeak skills she has demonstrated with the Benghazi massacre.

qhurt November 26, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Jeff1000 said “the preponderance of racism is by blacks upon whites, reverse racism. ”

Racism is racism there is no such thing as reverse racism. Also racism is an action of exclusion, denial and differing treatment based on skin color and/or ethnicity. In areas of employment, education and housing when have Blacks as a group been in the position to deny Whites any of these things?

As far as Blacks voting 95% for Obama..Blacks have also voted 90% for Clinton and Black unemployment has always been relatively higher than Whites no what what party is in power the only difference is when its democrats in power you all say that the higher unemployment in the Black community is the fault of liberal policies but when republicans are in power higher unemployment in the Black community is the fault of their own laziness.

Regarding Blacks trashing Black conservatives.. Lee Atwater created strategy to to garner the southern white vote. check the vid of him discussing how to use racial buzzwords and in it he specifically states:

“You start out in 1954 by saying ni–er, ni–er, ni–er. By 1968, you can’t say ni–er. That hurts you, it backfires, so you say stuff like…uh forced-busing, states’ rights, and all that stuff, and you getting so abstract now you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all of these thing you talking about are totally economic things & the byproduct of them is blacks get hurt worse than whites.”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AT2fsv7xt4E

This is the basic playbook republicans have been using for the last 40 years. Even conservative Blacks use it. You don’t think the Black community picks up on that?

Jeff1000 November 26, 2012 at 3:16 pm

qhurt, “reverse racism” is just a minority population being racist against a majority population. It’s not a republican racial buzzword (since I’m sure you were looking for a connection).

In 1996 Bill Clinton received 84% of the black vote, an 11% difference to Barack Obama’s 95% in 2012. And Barack Obama, unlike Bill Clinton, presided over an utterly failed presidency in every sphere, domestic and abroad, yet his failed presidency secured a higher percentage of the black vote than Bill Clinton’s tech boom assisted successful presidency heading into 1996.

So the black voters provided fewer votes to a successful white democrat president and more votes to a failed black democrat president. Nothing to see here, huh?

No, you convienently avoided my main point which is that Barack Obama was/ is no Bill Clinton and yet he received more black votes than Clinton. With a suffering economy, massive black unemployment, and amateur-hour foreign policy, Obama received more black votes than Clinton with his booming economy, and thanks to lucky factors beyond his control, a successful presidency. If Obama and Clinton had achieved comparable success then I would agree that 95% to 84% was insignificant.

Black voters aren’t stupid, and they’re well aware that Barack Obama is laughingly incompetent and a charlatan but they voted for him anyway. How come? Gay rights? Free condoms? Obamacare? I don’t think so.

Paternalistic and patronizing perhaps. However, the majority of the American public will probably also found it chivalrous and enliveningly assertive. Score on optics for the President on this one. It may be a sad day, but hardly a new one. It was also painful to Sen. McCain so peevish and querelous on this issue.
In other words, if there was a smear, it wasn’t even necessary. The mind of public opinion tends to wander off when the execute and legislative branches get into “he said/she said” arguments. In this instance, the American public doesn’t see substantial error on the part of Rice (quite possibly because they don’t really watch the Sunday morning news cycle).

It may be just that McCain saw that the position wasn’t doing him any favours regardless of the alleged discrimination witch hunt.

And you continue to refer to Susan Rice as “incompetent” while simultaneously offering explanation as to how you’ve reached this conclusion. While this certainly doesn’t prove that race is an issue, it makes it clear that your argument is not grounded in any way shape or form in her ability to do the job.

You would have more credibiity if you stated that both sides use these tactics, but then you are going to say that Obama said he wouldn’t use such tactics, blah blah,,so he broke a promise – My counter is, you clowns are suppose to be the “religious” right, washed in the blood of Christ and all that nonsense., so why use such tacticts? ,

Maybe he still fights for what he believes in but I’m not sure what that is these days, or for the last 20 years or so in the Senate, other than his own job – it’s certainly not a belief in competent people running the government and representing the American people. If someone expected Distain to stand up to the school-yard bully tactics of the Chicago machine, they were sadly mistaken.

Joseph Goebbels was credited with the following:
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Is this where we are heading? This administration is doing everything in its power to limit dissent and hide the truth from the American people.

The embassy in Cairo has had protesters marching against it for days now, and yet we hear little about that is going on in Egypt. What happens when the US Embassy in Egypt gets over run and the staff taken hostage as happened in Iran? Will our people be kept prisoners for 444 days or four years until someone comes along and scares the crap out of the Islamist?

The GOP is indeed racist. Led by Fox News, Drudge, and Rush Limbaugh the GOP faithful are given a daily dose of racism. The denial here is laughable. Own your racism. The Southern Strategy may still yet work for you.

It is no surprise that John McCain backed down. He is a RINO who has no spine whatsoever. Because the base didn’t turn out on November 6th, many people (including Obama himself) now believe that Obama can play the race card and the “gender” card and get his way.

Those of you who didn’t vote for Romney because you thought he was a RINO, YOU are the ones responsible for this. YOU are the reason why Obama is going to run this country from the leftist fringe for the next 4 years.

Next time around, we need to get everybody to the polls and to do that we need to nominate a real conservative whom everybody knows will drastically shrink the government. That is the only way we’re going to turn our base out and beat the Democrats. If we nominate Jeb Bush or Chris Christie (reason #2 why Obama got re-elected, so let’s hope his presidential campaign in 2016 is dead on arrival) or some other RINO, the base will stay home once again and the incompetent woman responsible for the takeover of Libya and Egypt by our enemies will be our next President.

It is fitting that an incompetent President would choose a lunatic to be his VP and would replace one incompetent Secretary of State with another. It would also be fitting if he nominated Senator Flip Flops as the next Secretary of Defense. His Department of Justice should already be called the Department of Injustice because it is primarily focused on arming drug dealers so they can use the resulting violence as an argument for abridging the right to keep and bear arms. This administration is a gang of incompetents, lunatics, traitors and criminals. The entire executive branch is a threat to our nation’s freedom and security. This country will be in much worse shape 4 years from now, but there are 60 million morons out there that will vote for the Democrat Party no matter what. The only way we can beat them is if the real America shows up to the polls next time.

It is so anti-American for democrats to call Republicans racists. The democrats have found a new trick and they are running with it. How is it that they are allowed to spew such filth and deceit and work in government?

And McCain backed off — he should be ashamed of himself to let these dems call him such names. I thought McCain was a real man but apparently he is not.

There should be a way to stop the democrats from such lies and deceit but nobody is doing anything about it? Just backing off like McCain?

The truth is the democrats are the racists, every word out of their mouth is racist against white people. Disgusting bunch. I hope there is a new civil war to shut these people up. That probably is the only way to get America back.

I think if the Democrats have taught us anything recently it’s that values such as merit, integrity, and character no longer matter. What’s important now is that you are politically correct. The standard of political correctness is of course determined by which ever party is in power. In the last 10 presidential elections, this is the first time I can remember where the winner continued to try to divide the country. One has to wonder why. All I know is any answers to that question I can conjure up are not good.
