Morning Joe Rips 'Old White Guy' Republicans For Going After 'Younger Woman-of-Color' Rice
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 11/20/2012 9:10:27 AM PST by chessplayer

From Joe Scarborough to John Heilemann, Katty Kay to Mark Halperin to Willie Geist, it was unanimous on today's Morning Joe. Whatever the substance, whatever the policy, Republicans would be making a massive political mistake by opposing the possible nomination of Susan Rice as Secretary of State.

Summed up Scarborough the MJ zeitgeist: "do a bunch of old white guys want to make their first big battle, post-election, a battle going up against a younger woman of color?" View the video after the jump.

JOHN HEILEMANN: The optics are obviously horrible, taking on an African-American woman in this way.


TOPICS: News/Current Events
KEYWORDS:
Well, like it or not, the left has managed to do it. They have made the confirmation hearing all about skin color and gender and nothing but skin color and gender. And Pravda USA will have a field day accusing Republicans of racism and sexism if they don't automatically rubber stamp her to the post. If I was the Dear Leader, I would nominate all non-whites to positions and then cry racism if they aren't automatically rubber stamped.

And in case anyone says the skin color card is worn out, it is NOT worn out. It is more effective than it ever was.

Joe, The Token White RINO

It’s like Mika said:

Once you get a RINO by his Pride And Joy, his heart and mind will follow.

Like Rush just said...this from the party that went out of their way to elect two white guys instead of one black woman (Mia Love) and a black man (Allen West).

They don’t care about race...it’s all about liberalism.

So long as obama is president, color is going to be the only thing that matters...in anything.

Politics is a rough business, and the only skin type that matters is the “thick” type.

If this woman, and her cohorts, can’t take the heat, they need to get out of the kitchen.

She wants all the rights and privilieges, but doesn’t want to suffer any of the slings and arrows...typical.

I couldn't care less that she is a lesbian woman of color, I am more concerned with who gave the Ambassador to the UN (whoever and whatever that person is) the false talking points about Benghazi. If a black male gave her those talking points, well then even more dog whistles will sound I suppose.

No matter what the facts, it will devolve into a rassiss homophobic argument anyway - a lesbian of color lying about the demise of a gay white ambassador. I guess we need to get used to it.

All I see is 4 dead Americans and a very obvious cover up. Dog whistles be damned.

Old white guys have three strikes against them:
1. They are old
2. They are white
3. They are guys

None of these are politically protected classes in 0bama’s Amerika.

Any person who is stupid enough to go on national tv, five times in one day, and spout lies, just because they were told to do so, is not qualified to hold any position of such stature as the Secretary of State.

The first thing they do is play the race card, no matter the person’s skin color. If they put up an Asian Communist to run instead of Obama, we all would’ve been racist against Asians for opposing the person, rather than black people.

First Law of Liberalism: If you aren’t a progressive secularist anything negative you say about either a progressive secularist or a progressive secularist idea is racist, sexist, or intolerant. This Law trumps all others.

Let’s Make a Deal!

Hey Morning Joe (and all the rest of the MSM), Republicans will give Susan Rice (The “Woman of Color”) a free pass just as soon as ALL of you are replaced by “Colored People” (is that the current PC term to cover “Women of Color”, “Men of Color” and “Confused as to their Gender Beings of Color”?)

You can staff Morning Joe with Cynthia McKinney, Cornel West, The Being Formerly Known as Prince, Al Sharpton, Jesse, whomever.

We don’t watch anyway.

Just federalizing what has been known in working level corporate America for decades. You can’t expect black employees at any level of private employment or government employment to have any work expectations to meet. If you do, then you are racist!

You are supposed to not hold them to any targets or expectations and then be ready to promote them on demand!

I think we need a new word to call “us” when we engage in sexism (criticizing a female) who happens to be black (racism).

How about “rexism” and “rexists”?

Sorry Joe, its not about her race—its what she said. This old rusty race card is not in the least bit applicable here. You are becoming Chris Matthews where everything is a dog whistle for racism.

Whatever Rice’s gender or color, she was a willing liar to the American people...and that is the issue, they want to ignore.

"Morning Joe Rips 'Old White Guy' Republicans For Going After 'Younger Woman-of-Color' Rice ..."

..... I think this incident could be used as a shining example of what is wrong with the GOP, Conservatives and anybody else out there complaining about the results of the last election. Case in point ..... observe who is talking about that statement made by the DNC Chair about the GOP: "...They Got Whiter and More Male..." Observe who is speaking out against that statement ..... Is it anybody in elected office .... Heck, except on very rare occasions, does anybody in elected office ever voice any displeasure about anything verbally puked out by the Dems? The answer is .... NO!

.... Unfortunately .... our elected officials seem to make a very concerted effort to only allow the conservative talking heads and talk show hosts portray any verbal defense or do any vocal dismay about anything said by the Liberals, Progressives aka Democrats. The problem with that is ..... the points of views put forth by the talk show hosts et al .... are for the most part preaching to the choir and not getting out into the public forum as well as it would if it was spoken on the House or Senate floors.

.... On the other side, the Dems always rally ALL of their machinery to do any vocal defense or displeasure .... including their elected officials. In fact 99% of the time they do this so efficiently by getting their talking points out almost immediately after an incident or event ... they seem to consistently have the ability to efficiently frame the argument and force the GOP on the defensive. And even then ..... the GOP elected officials refrain from making any comment and wait ..... and wait .... for the talking heads and talk show hosts to voice any conservative response. My guess is that they do this to see how the public reacts to the statements before they even squeak out an insipid statement. In short probably an effort to protect their crappy job instead of growing some brass ones and actually taking a stance on the floor of House or Senate or any place for that matter.

... IMO If the GOP ever hopes to regain anything and expect to ever re-educate the public about the constitution and the need for conservative principles... there will have to be a rapid response team set in motion to voice conservative talking points and principles to the public ears instead of only speaking to the choir members when relying only on the talking heads and talk show hosts.

Liberals kill me. On the one hand they keep the pot stirring on minority complaints...relentlessly educating minority voters to think of themselves as under served, exploited, disenfranchised, etc.

On the other hand they perpetually remind minorities how good they have it, NOW.. and that they should hump the leg of every Liberal politician from now on ... performing this act with servile and dehumanizing adoration!!

The Liberals have had it both ways for so long that no one questions the glaring absence of logic in any of this!!

I guess if your constituency is THIS docile and easily led, you can get and keep their allegiance with completey dishonest, intellectual clap trap!

On a good day Fox News’ Democrat Bob Beckel is more republican than Joe Scarborough and THAT is telling.

Hey Joe! Did you conveniently forget Senator Kelly Ayotte was in that complaint too? And she's not an old white guy, is she, Joe? Aw, you did miss that, didn't you, Joe? You're not very bright, are you Joe? But I'll let Lamont's Dad handle it for me, OK Joe?

Sick to death of being called racist when an inept liar is presented as a viable candidate for any office! I judge people on their character and behavior, not their skin color!

I, being older than most Freepers, have been there- being sick to death of the unwarranted charge of "racism". I know what it is to know within oneself, of a hurtful smear, used as an almost irrefutable weapon. Now what I have been able to do it this.

(1) Explore what the spitefulness does to one's inner soul
(2). Weigh up the cretins who use this spite, coupled with their mentality.
(3) Walk or turn away with a serene awareness of one's own real inner beliefs.
(4) Leave the cretins to stew in their own bile, never mind them anymore.

Please excuse my ramble, but I have adopted this stance and even laugh at the cretins.

To more clearly define the term “cretin” I do not in anyway use it in the old sense of a mentally deficient person. Merely in the modern usage.
