Double Standard on Race

I think the Democrats are just a pack of racists. Their policy is nothing but the biased work of a bunch of racist Black men. Furthermore, I couldn’t tell you who is responsible for these bigoted policies; all those Blacks look the same to me.
Are you shocked to find out I’d say that? Yeah, I bet you are. You thought I was some decent guy, and not some scumbag, feces slinging conservative Republican racist jerkoff? Right?
Well, thing is, those aren’t really my words. Rather, I’m repeating what the Hon. Corrine Brown (D-Fla.) said to Assistant Secretary of State Roger Noriega yesterday afternoon, regarding the Administration’s not-ready-for-primtime policy on Haitian refugees. The difference is, I substituted Blacks for “Whites” in Brown’s statement. That’s about it – otherwise I’m repeating what she said more or less verbatim.
This racist slam – not faint praise for some old retiring ex-bigot, but real live racist shit chucking – has passed without mention in the mainstream media. I’ve only found one article on it, compliments of Insty; so I posted the entire thing below, because I’m sure the story will disappear down the memory hole momentarily.
But tell me something, dear readers. Didn’t we hound Trent Lott out of a Republican leadership position for much, much less? And didn’t Al Sharpton just tonight say that Bush won the presidency in 2000 thanks to his race baiting? (A campaign ploy I don’t remember, but if it takes one to know one, I’ll take Al’s word that Dubya is a race baiter).
Evidently, we only hold Republicans to race neutral standards, and we’re free to call Republicans racist, or to lay racist slurs on them if we want, without fear of condemnation.
Yet it’s the Dems who fight for the right to racially discriminate in college admissions; they fight for the right to racially discriminate in hiring; and now they flat out lay racial slurs on high ranking government officials. Not content to to roll out Bull Connor’s vocabulary and call Clarence Thomas a “race traitor,” Ms. Brown has to just flat out drop slurs on Mr. Noriega.
When it comes to race, the Dems are dirty, dirty, dirty, disgusting and covered in filth; and I am geting friggin sick of hearing the constant libel that all Republicans are racist, and the Dems constitutionally incapable of it. It isn’t true, and their lies are sickening, and serve only to pick at the sore scab of race in this country. There are few things more heinous than racism; one of those things being knowing, false accusations of racism. Ms. Brown showed off her mastery of both yesterday.
The irony here is, like many things, this most typical of Dem congresspersyns is so incompetent that she can’t even get her racial slurs right: Mr. Noriega was perplexed at the insult, since he actually considers himself Hispanic, not White.
Oh yeah, and one other irony. The quick-thinking Noriega said that he would be sure to relay Ms. Brown’s message to the two racist White men who are formulating the Haiti policy – Colin Powell and Condoleeza Rice.


“Brown rips into Bush administration official
KEN THOMAS
Associated Press
MIAMI – U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown verbally attacked a top Bush administration official during a briefing on the Haiti crisis Wednesday, calling the President’s policy on the beleaguered nation “racist” and his representatives “a bunch of white men.”
Her outburst was directed at Assistant Secretary of State Roger Noriega during a closed-door meeting on Capitol Hill. Noriega, a Mexican-American, is the State Department’s top official for Latin America.
“I think it was an emotional response of her frustration with the administration,” said David Simon, a spokesman for the Jacksonville Democrat. He noted that Brown, who is black, is “very passionate about Haiti.”
Brown sat directly across the table from Noriega and yelled into a microphone. Her comments sent a hush over the hourlong meeting, which was attended by about 30 people, including several members of Congress and Bush administration officials.
Noriega later told Brown: “As a Mexican-American, I deeply resent being called a racist and branded a white man,” according to three participants.
Brown then told him “you all look alike to me,” the participants said.
During the meeting, Brown criticized the administration’s response to the escalating violence in Haiti, where rebels opposing President Jean-Bertrand Aristide’s government have seized control of large parts of the country.
After her comments about white men, Noriega said he would “relay that to (Secretary of State) Colin Powell and (national security adviser) Condoleezza Rice the next time I run into them,” participants said. Powell and Rice are black.
A State department spokesman did not return a phone message.
U.S. Rep. Mark Foley, R-West Palm Beach, who organized the meeting, called the comments “disappointing.”
“To sit there and browbeat this man who is a Mexican-American and call him names, it was inappropriate,” Foley said.
Brown has criticized the detention of Haitian migrants fleeing their country and the freezing of millions of dollars in aid over flawed 2000 legislative elections in the impoverished Caribbean nation. In a statement Wednesday, she made parallels to the disputed 2000 election in Florida.
“It simply mystifies me how President Bush, a president who was selected by the Supreme Court under more than questionable circumstances (in my district alone 27,000 votes were thrown out), is telling another country that their elections were not fair and that they are therefore undeserving of aid or international recognition,” Brown said.
Participants at the meeting included eight members of Florida’s congressional delegation, U.S. Reps. Christopher Cox, R-Calif., and Maxine Waters, D-Calif.; John Maisto, U.S. Ambassador to the Organization of American States, and Adolfo Franco, an assistant administrator with the U.S. Agency for International Development.”

    Ugh. Another product of what extreme gerrymandering hath wrought, and I sadly only have my bosses in the Florida Legislature to blame for the fact that Corrinne Brown could do absolutely ANYTHING and her constituents would still reelect her.
    This story should not be allowed to die, though of course I expect and fear it will.

    It’s Now “Official”

    According to Congresswoman Corrine Brown, Roger Noriega, Colin Powell, and Condoleezza Rice “a bunch of white men.”. They all look…

    Of course what she said was Rascist! I agree wholeheartedly. The reason I believe that not too many main stream media outlets picked up on it was “WHY” she said what she said.
    The problem is not so much her comments as to the problem that was never addressed in Haiti by the Bush Administration until it was too late. She was speaking out of frustration for what to her and to me as racist policies and double standards in Haiti.
    I mean the State department says that Aristede should not come back to Haiti cause it would increase the violence..
    If some military group forced President bush out of office and he went to say US virgin Islands…but wanted to return..would people say he wanted to increase the violence because he wanted to be the President again?
    Think about it..double standard
