Senator Harry Reid manages to get yet another pass for saying something ridiculously stupid about race. Earlier this year, news surfaced of comments he made about President Obama being "light-skinned" and having "no Negro dialect." The usual race-baiters, i.e, Sharpton and Company, weren't at all offended. Now, come on...when's the last time S&C haven't jumped on the racial politics band wagon? It's amazing to see how merciful they become whenever a Democrat is involved and how quick they are to jump to conclusions whenever a Conservative is involved. But of course, that's not news. We all know of the hypocritical double standard the Left espouses.
Now the Senator has added something to his resume: not only is he an expert on the "negro." He has become an expert on the Hispanic, as well. He told supporters a couple days ago, "I don't know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, okay? Do I need to say more?" In other words, Hispanics, like Blacks, are supposed to be Democrats. If they're not, they're traitors to their race. Who does Reid think he is, making such a statement? And his excuse that he only mentioned Hispanics because he was talking to Hispanics is lame. The Left believe they own both Blacks and Hispanics. They count on us to keep them in power--or to stay on the plantation, as I call it.
Harry Reid only said what he believes. The outrage so many Democrats express whenever a minority rejects the plantation is based on their belief that we are not capable of thinking for ourselves. We don't have independent thoughts and values. We simply do what's expected of us. That mentality is one of the many problems I have with the Left. As much as they accuse the Right of racism, they are the ones who harbor seriously scary views about race. They truly expect minorities to side with them without even one original idea. At the mere thought that we won't, people like Reid get all "wee-wee'd up," to quote the President, and then get up in front of others and pull out that race card, essentially saying, "How dare you people think for yourselves? No, think with us. We own you." And that's how too many on the Left really feel.
Remember the revelation we received earlier this summer that the media was willing to pick just about anyone on the Right and paint him as a racist?
Instead, take one of them — Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.
They engage in such despicable behavior, yet they go around making "innocent" comments about race that are uninformed, offensive, and stupid--and they continue to get a pass.
So what do Hispanic Conservatives have to say about Senator Reid's comments? Dr. Manny Alvarez spoke to Megyn Kelly and explained why the Senator's comments are "a profound insult."
Reid asked, "Do I need to say more?" Dr. Alvarez said yes, that he needs to explain himself--and apologize. I say no. Enough already, Senator, of the palabras estupidas.
Harry Reid seems to get away with all kinds of nonsensical behavior: racial stereotyping, ignoring the voice of the American people, spending America into oblivion, and basically using his actions and words to give us the finger. But I can see November from my house, and it is my hope that Nevada will send Harry home to his in the upcoming mid-term elections.
