Soledad O'Brien Tees Up Clyburn to Identify Racial Code In GOP Opposition to Susan Rice
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 11/20/2012 9:46:57 AM PST by chessplayer

CNN's Soledad O'Brien teed up Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) to pick out the "code words" in GOP opposition to Susan Rice's nomination to Secretary of State, on Tuesday morning's Starting Point.

"Would you agree with what she's saying that there's a racial or a sexist component to a lot of these comments?" O'Brien asked, quoting the incoming chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC). "Or would you say as the letter seems to say, they use the word 'incompetent,' and they use the word undermining the desire to improve U.S. relations?"

Clyburn, himself a member of the CBC, obliged and said the criticism was racially-coded. "You know, these are code words," he insisted. "During this recent campaign we heard Senator Sununu calling our President 'lazy,' 'incompetent,' these kinds of terms that those of us, especially those of us who had grown and raised in the south, we would hear these little words and phrases all of our lives and we'd get insulted by them."


TOPICS: News/Current Events
KEYWORDS:
The left is really starting to get into gear now about the confirmation hearing, and our "post-racial" preezy is doing nothing to try to stop this kind of talk.

A black guest on Fox last night night called the congressional black caucus the congressional black choir because they sing the same song over and over like a broken record thats stuck on stupid.

Because of affirmative action incompetent people are hired. Therefore “incompetent” is a racist and sexist codeword. /s

New updates to Websters Dictionary:

“Racist” A person who expresses disagreement with anything said by a person of color

“Sexist” A person who expresses disagreement with anything said by a female. See “War on Women”.

Yeah, but they were traitors to their race, so it was ok to savage them.

I;ve had it with this crap.

We wnat borders an dlaws enforced we hate immigrants
we want to stop welfare fraud we have poor people
we want the right people for the job we are racist
we want women to pay for their own condoms and we hate women

sick of this s$$t

Our side never does a damn thing to stop these people from coming out with stupid outrageous comments.

Our side has the first for blacks, more hispanics in power, we got more women two eyars ago because of Sarah

we have the civil rights, on our side
they have the KKK, slavery Pres Wilson who segregated the military and our side never comments about anything, instead it;s reach out

just sick of the left and the pathetic corrupt media which tries to tell us it is not biased

Clyburn is nothing but another professional victim. He “sees” racism everywhere but where it really is,,,in the person looking back at him in a mirror.

Soon a sigh or an eye movement will be deemed racist.

I;m sick of it.

last week or two I was told I was a cracker, go back to where I come from etc[born in England]

She the black woman said all of this because we argued about her buying vodka with her welfare check and driving a new Nissan while she can;t even pay for her own food for her kids.

racism in the black community is worn as a badge of honor whilst us white Christian, straight guys can;t even mention anything or ask a question.

Pelosi marched right through the tea party and othing happened so they made up charges of racism
They call us crackers etc and all is well but they then attack Sarah and other conservative women and then say we hate women.

obama has put race relations back two decades .

Remember a time when people got jobs and promotion based on if they can do the job, now we give jobs and promotion out to minorities and then call us racist if we say what is going on.

I never knew she was black until I read the Democrats saying criticism of her was racist. Does that immunize me from these charges because I was critical of what she said just from hearing her on the radio? Probably not because the next card on the Eco wold be tossed out, that I am just being sexist.

When they say “marriage quality” they should support bestiality as well.

Communists consider blacks just another collection of “useful idiots”, along with Hispanics, Hollywood, the MSM, unwed mothers, and college students.

yup equality should be for anything goes but how strange the homosexuals oppose other kinds of marriage but shout equality, one would think they’re just hypocritical and it;s all about them.

Oh wait.

I think her refusal to identify, by name, Marcia Fudge is racial code-talking.

People believe this crap because it is easy. And the United States is all about easy. Black people can hide behind their skin color and Susan Rice can hide behind her vagina. That’s all it is. When will the GOP call them on it? Never...

I have a simple proposition for ending racism in America.

1. Racists should be shot.

2. Anyone making accusations of racism without proof should be shot.

If the "crime" of racism is going to be held as heinous, then unfounded accustions of it should be no less so.

Aren’t we all “people of color”? I’ve yet to meet a person who didn’t have color. Whites, blacks, Latinos, Asians, and every other person has color.

Two words: Condolezza Rice

I don’t recall any Republicans opposing her on racist grounds.

All of this is very true but not important to those who like their free ice cream. If acting on the facts will result in eliminating the ice cream vendor, those who like their free ice cream don’t want to be bothered with the facts. We have lost our Republic - politicians know how to bribe the public with the public’s money. We have lost our democracy because the people have found the keys to our public treasury. We have lost America, in large part, because conservatives do not vote.

Me neither. 99% of the country (including libs) probably didn’t know she was black until the race peddlers started screeching like banshees.

Me too, until the race peddlers and Pravda USA set us straight. ‘Incompetent’ is racist code speak. So I guess there are no incompetent blacks in the US. Zero.
