For unknowable reasons, the Left seems to not understand that both sides want to win an election and maybe that’s why there are so many irrational attacks on Republican candidates.
The latest assault came from an MSNBC host named Touré. I never heard of him or, for that matter, many of the other pundits who appear on cable news 24/7. One thing America has is an oversupply of punditry.
Touré was talking about presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s challenge to President Barack Obama—to “take [his] campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago.”
Touré said, according to Breitbart News, “that Mitt Romney is engaged in the ‘niggerization’ of Barack Obama.
Touré ignored the giant in-your-face symbolism of what Chicago stands for. He also apparently ignored the politically bloody assault the Romney camp has worked to counter.
What Touré said is an inexcusable display of epic vitriol and blatant racism.
Meanwhile, many of us are still marveling at Vice President Joe Biden’s “chains” moment in the pulpit. I’d like to ask the VP to please never again try to emulate a black preacher. I’d remind Biden the original party who put people in chains happened to be the Democrats whose obsession with racism suggests innate racism.
Shortly before these dramas were launched, the American Sunrise PAC released an ad showing a photo-fabricated image of Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), who happens to be black and conservative punching an old white woman in a boxing ring.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more racist ad in my lifetime.
West won his primary by taking 84.96 percent of the vote.
The American Sunrise PAC has two donors. You can draw your own conclusions about the type of person who would support such messaging.
I think Romney gave good advice that could be extended to Touré, Biden, and the PAC.
Head to Chicago. You’ll all be right at home there. Maybe you can hook up with Mayor Rahm Emanuel and some of his buddies at the Nation of Islam. Before you go, you might want to practice duck and run.
