1) Harry Reid Shows His True, and Racist, Colors
I don’t know if Harry Reid’s ivory tower is padded, but it should be. In January of this year, the king demagoguer had his own hypocritical mask ripped off upon the release of the book Game Change. An excerpt from the book, detailing a private conversation with Harry Reid, exposes what he truly believes, away from the cover of his public facade:
On page 37, a remark, said “privately” by Sen. Harry Reid, about Barack Obama’s racial appeal. Though Reid would later say that he was neutral in the presidential race, the truth, the authors write, was that his “encouragement of Obama was unequivocal. He was wowed by Obama’s oratorical gifts and believed that the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama — a “light-skinned” African American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,” as he said privately. Reid was convinced, in fact, that Obama’s race would help him more than hurt him in a bid for the Democratic nomination.
“Oh, look! He sure does talk purty! For a black guy and all.” How vile. It also means that your race card is no longer accepted, Harry Reid. The above remarks are truly racist, as opposed to the race card-y Racist ™. Bigoted and offensive, but not surprising. The only thing that really surprises me is that they didn’t garner Harry Reid the vice president spot. I mean, Joe Biden must be rather pleased with himself for going one further and calling President Obama “clean and articulate.”
This wasn’t the only exposure of Harry Reid’s bigotry this year. Earlier this month, he contemptuously mocked those of Hispanic heritage who would dare to refuse to walk in lock-step with Democrats:
Watch Reid sneer: “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican.”
Think independently? That’s unheard of! Harry Reid’s private comments show the truth that only the willfully ignorant refuse to understand. It is the Left who sees color everywhere, and in everything. They are grossly diminishing true acts of real racism with their willy-nilly tossing about of the Racist card and they are diminishing and demeaning the entire Civil Rights movement by incessantly hurling the race card to further political agendas, all the while betraying themselves with these constant, blatant “misspeaks.”
