Does anyone really wonder why W doesn’t hang out with NAACP-type folks? Is it any secret why Jesse Jackson doesn’t have a standing invitation to visit 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? Maybe the rhetoric spewed Saturday in Atlanta has something to do with it.
What would you do if you got a call from someone who thinks you’re just slightly worse than Satan, “Hey, we’re having a party and we need someone to beat on, why don’t you come on over and hang out with us. We’ll pretend to like you and then, when we get you alone in the room, we’ll do our level best to destroy you by painting you as a racist pig who hates to see minorities survive, let alone succeed.”
Want to know who the real racists are? Take a look at what the dirtballs had to say at the “civil rights march” sponsored by the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition and included leaders from the National Urban League, The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the NAACP, and the AFL-CIO.
· "They all need to be locked up because they are all criminals and they are all thieves," said Judge Greg Mathis, the star of the syndicated television program "The Judge Mathis Show."
· "It is indeed criminal to steal an election and within two years run up a federal deficit of half-a-trillion dollars, send our young people over to Iraq to die for an unjust war. What they are doing is criminal," Mathis said to loud cheers.
· Entertainer/activist Harry Belafonte also used charged rhetoric during the march when he referred to black members of the Bush administration as "black tyrants."
· "[The] Supreme Court was an accomplice to the biggest election crime in history in 2000. And I call it a crime because indeed that is exactly what it was," he [Mathis] said to applause.
· The Bush administration was equated with past policies of slavery and segregation and labeled "the enemy of our (black America's) progress" by Mathis. "They shot and missed when they enslaved, segregated and oppressed our people. They shot and missed when they stole the past two presidential elections. They shot and missed when they denied our right to vote," Mathis said.
· 'Intimidation and discrepancies' Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California appeared at the march and noted that minorities may not have had full voting rights in the last two presidential elections. "Some changes have to be made so we don't have a repeat of 2000 and 2004 where there was intimidation and discrepancies at the polls," Pelosi told Cybercast News Service during the voting rights march. "In the state of Ohio, where they had fewer voting booths and long lines in minority neighborhoods and no lines and many voting booths in white neighborhoods, that the balance is not what it should have been," she added.
· U.S. Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) echoed the accusation of many at the march that Bush was an illegitimate president. "The last two elections were stolen. They were stolen and so we will not rest until we reclaim our democracy and this is what today is all about," Lee told the crowd gathered.
· Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) made it clear who the marchers were directing their anger at on Saturday."We are here to take on President Bush, [Vice President] Dick Cheney. We are here to take on [House Majority Leader] Tom DeLay. We are here to take on the new appointee to the Supreme Court, John Roberts," Waters said from the podium to cheers from the crowd.
· The Bush administration was also targeted by Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), who declared that the president's "record against human rights, civil rights, economic rights, is absolutely terrible."
· Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) said America was being ruled by the "Bush mentality," where "crony capitalism" was supreme.
· Jesse Jackson said the Voting Rights Act extension is critical because "the same old enemies of civil rights and voting rights will always keep up their ugly activities. "Race baiters and discriminators may go underground, but they never move out of town," Jackson said.
Holy freaking cow. This bunch of loonies has gone stark raving mad.
I wish someone would make a prime-time special out of this event. I want the entire world to see what the Left has turned into.
In the not-too-distant-past, you would never find a minority leader attending such an event and spitting the venom that San Fran Nan spat on Saturday.
All you Lefties who read this blog – This is your party, this is why you are losing every vestige of power you once had.
Ain’t it beautiful?
