Mary Frances Berry
Professor of American Social Thought and History, U. Penn. :
Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November. Having ones opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness.
Did she forget her /sarc tag?
When I first clicked on the link, I thought that pic was Colin P0well.
Do you remember who Mary Francis Berry is?
She was a member of the Civil Rights Commission whose term expired. GWB was POTUS then, and this piece of excrement REFUSED (for a while, until she lost in court) to step down at the end of her term and allow W’s appointee Peter Kirsanow to take his seat.
There is no racist idea too outrageous for MF Berry to put forth.
So does Sophia Nelson:
Race and the tea-party movement is a false debate
So when will there be a Long Island Iced Tea Party?
Yeah she defended the Tea Party all right. She said that there is no evidence that they are any more racist than any other people, but go ahead and call them racists to force them defend themselves instead of being able to discuss the issues. Ya, a great civil rights spokes-idiot we have there.
Here’s her statement, Carley, that Andrew Breitbart read aloud on Hannity’s TV show tonight.
Berry is an old Maoist-admiring leftist from the Clinton administration. Has a few red fronts in her closet. Will post them as they are found.
Also believe she was tied up in a pro-Castro communist front out of New York.
She was a nasty bitch on the U.S. Civil Rights Commission.
At leasthey aren’t trying to hide anything...

Mary Frances is known as “Dingle” to her acquaintances.
Why hasn’t the Tea Party gone after those who charge them with racism? Seems as though a huge defamation lawsuit would shut this viral campaign of lies right down.
Berry, like Kagan, are examples of the appointees you get from Democrat presidents. Yet the American people persist in electing them. If Clinton and 0bama truly were “moderates” or represented middle American values they would not appoint divisive far lefties like there.
I know you’ve been following it too. Pick a Republican, any Republican, Fred Barnes, Karl Rove. Accuse them of racism. They sputter and spit, and forget their message about the economy, jobs, national defense. Make them defend themselves against the accusation, no matter how false.
I want to join the Jasmine Tea Party.
This was a pretty profound moment in race baiting though. The NAACP threw out the usual and customary false accusation of racism and thanks to BREITBART, it exploded in their faces like a defective IED. Thank you again BREITBART! There had better be solid evidence that a LOT of Tea Party members are racist before the NAACP tries something like that again. They fired, the missed and the round landed amongst themselves, and Sherrod was a big casualty.
That looks like Nelson Mandela after a few estrogen treatments.
Who the hell is this woman?
Black, white, Catholic, Protestant, Republican, Democrat, male, female, rich, poor, et al. are smoke and mirrors to deflect Americans from from coming to terms with the concept that Progressivism equals treason against the Republic. Political correctness is the putrescent stench that wafts from the body politic infected with Marxist ideology. These labels and accusations are simply intended to make you break stride, to question your motives, and to direct your attention to that which is ultimately meaningless. Your focus must remain on making them ashamed of the Progressive label.
Yup-The idea is to put us back on our heels defending against charges of non-existent racism so they can keep taking over the country. Nice try, folks.
I remember how she treated the Thernstroms on that panel...

In a body politic wracked with racist cancers, Mary Frances Berry is one of the very most evil and malignant of them.
