Liberal 2.0: Race and sex absolve all

September 10, 2014

From his 2009 claim that “ things racial” America is “essentially a nation of cowards” to telling Al Sharpton’s National Action Network that no other Attorney General or President has experienced the level of criticism and disrespect as he and Mr. Obama, Eric Holder has repeatedly used race to excuse the actions of himself and his boss.

I guess he never heard the vile spewed against Clarence Thomas.  And he was evidently living under a very big rock during the years of hate his ilk threw at President Bush.  It must have been “racial animus” that spawned all the Bush hangings in effigy, the Hitler mustaches, and calls for war crimes trials.

What you won’t hear Mr. Holder talk about is his role in securing the pardon of the despicable Marc Rich in the last hours of the Clinton Presidency, or how he was for releasing FALN terrorists when the FBI was against it, or the role he played in dropping the voter intimidation case against The New Black Panther Party.

When Rick Lazio dared enter Hillary Clinton’s “space” at a 2000 Senate debate in an attempt to get her to sign a pledge against raising “soft” money, Clinton later called him a bully and implied he would have never treated a man in that way.  And then there’s her famous “tear up” the day before the 2008 New Hampshire primary.

Perhaps if Mrs. Clinton spent more time reading the likes of Margaret Thatcher than giving $200k speeches she’d realize that when it comes to true leadership, the intellectual is far more important than the biological.

The head of the Democrat National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D FL at a women’s issues roundtable last week stated that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker had “given women the back of his hand” and that he was “grabbing us by the hair and pulling us back”.

Has the modern day Democrat party really become so devoid of ideas that it now must resort to equating opposing political views with domestic violence?

State Department Deputy spokesperson Marie Harf got so unhinged last week when Bill O’Reilly commented that her boss, Jen Psaki  “looks way out of her depth” that she took to the podium saying he used “sexist, personally offensive language that I actually don’t think they would ever use about a man,”.

I guess Ms. Harf missed O’Reilly’s “He looks to me to be befuddled…doesn’t look like he has a lot of credibility” skewering of male White House press secretary Josh Earnest.

Such is the thinness of skin and shallowness of thought inhabiting today’s Democrat party.

Use your race or sex to highlight your trailblazing independence to obtain a position, then, hide behind your race or sex to escape accountability.

But you can’t be a brave, bold pioneer, on one hand and a cowering, helpless victim on the other.

History’s true trailblazers were not about the personal, but about the policy.

Susan B. Anthony, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Margaret Thatcher could have spent their lives blaming men but instead they embraced themselves.  And all women, all men are better for it.

Frederick Douglass, George Washington Carver, and Martin Luther King, Jr. did not waste their time slinging insults and racial demagoguery.  And all Americans of all races are better for it.

The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows 71 percent of Americans think the nation is on the wrong track.

Yet are Democrats rethinking a few things; a little more looking in rather than lashing out?

Not a chance.  Why?

Because only a racist, sexist, bigoted mind could ever think a Democrat wrong, right?
