He called her, "Ma'am."

He's not a military guy so it's ok, I guess.

Yeah, but video is damning in a way test doesn’t. Post videos along with summaries.

Boxer to Blacks: “You darkies need to shut up, keep voting Democrat and let the government take care of the thinking for you; that’s how the new plantation works.”

That guy just tore her a new one. It’s nice to see boxer sweat every once in a while. She can dish it out but she can’t take it.

Barbara Boxer wound up getting reamed by Harry Alford, the chair of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, after attempting to challenge his testimony on energy policy. When Boxer started waving position papers from the NAACP and the 100 Black Men of Atlanta, Alford called it a “condescending” attack and complained about Boxer’s focus on black people rather than science:

Who would've dreamed that there are racist liberals?

why not? they endorse eugenics and progressivism - As a matter of fact, a black baby is more likely to be aborted than a white baby....the number of black babies aborted could fill a large city

which is the party of abortion?

I’m glad he put her in her place.

But, to be fair, when you chair an organization that’s based on RACE, watch where you throw stones.

Just sayin’.

I agree. And I enjoyed seeing and hearing Mr. Alford press that arrogant, condescending bitch. He was righteously indignant.

I like how he doesn't act cowed by her right off the bat. Too many people before these damn Senate hearings seem to think they have to let the "lords and masters" run roughshod over them. OTOH, there's a bit of irony that the president of the Black Chamber of Commerce complaining about someone acting "racial". Just saying.

Alford had an attitude before he was asked anything - look at the beginning of the tape, all he wanted to do was show how big the chip on his shoulder was - calling out Boxer? i don’t think so. I have seen people like Alford in my life and they are just messed up , it’s all about “them”. He’d learn a lot if listened just a little.

Exactly. Boxer is a first-class idiot, but if he is going up there as a representative of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, he can't complain about her focusing her response on predominantly black institutions. It's not condescending for her to play in the ballpark that he brought to the hearing.

“that arrogant, condescending bitch. “

Those were my feelings the first time I heard her testify at a hearing in the early eighties. She served at that time on the House subcommittee on Fish, Wildlife and the
Environment. She was eviscerating the California tuna Industry at the time on behalf of the Dolphins.

So he’s just supposed to sit there and be quiet and not refute any of the “damned lies” that worthless socialist bag o’ bones spews?

What in the hell is he, a private businessman, going to “learn” from a worthless politician who has never worked a real job in her entire life?

I would have a chip on my shoulder as well if I knew I had to go in a room and answer that biddy’s questions.

Sorry, your post smells of ozone.

Come on. In this case nothing but viewing the video would get across the condescension of Boxer or the disgust at it by the panelist. If you don’t like the video don’t click the link.

NAACP—”What does that mean?”—I love it.

Boxer’s saying, “You’re black, sir. Other black people like Cap ‘n’ Trade, so should you, by way of Aristotle’s transitive principle of racism.”

I don’t mind the video links in and of themselves, but I wish people would provide some context, commentary, and or summaries.

A post with little more than a title and a link is, to me, a waste of time.

As a black Conservative, I am SO happy he did this. Finally, somebody exposes the REAL racists-liberals who think all black people think alike or, like Boxer, that all black people SHOULD think alike and hold the same opinions.

THANK YOU MR.ALFORD.

Get a grip. How would YOU feel if you were in his shoes? Boxer was totally out of line and condescending as h***.

Alford did a great job of standing up for himself and calling her out on her outrageous behavior. Good for him!
