Skip to comments.Obama Czar Rattner: Colin Powell Feels 'Hostility' From GOP Because He's Black
Posted on 01/14/2013 5:47:45 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Oh those racist Republicans. Did you know that they're hostile to Colin Powell because he's black? Yup, just ask former Obama car czar Steve Rattner. The Morning Joe regular today claimed that poor Powell "feels this hostility toward him from the rest of the party in part because he's a minority."
Really? Colin Powell feels hostility from "the rest of the party" because he's a minority? The Colin Powell for whom so many in the GOP were clamoring to run for president in 1995-96? The Powell who actually won the 1996 New Hampshire primaryas a write-in!after he had withdrawn his name from consideration? That Colin Powell? Please.

So who was calling Powell a “house negro” when he was working in the Bush administration?
Colin Powell feels “hostility from rest of Republican party” because he’s black. So claims former Obama car czar. Baloney! Ping to Today show list.
That’s exactly right. The left did nothing but go after Powell in racist tones for 15 years. Now that he’s on their team, he’s a-ok. Our side is critical of his illogical political decisions, and we are now racists. The left is evil.
I’m getting a little more than tired of all this BULLYING from the fools n the left!
I know having Powell as SoS helped GWB get re-elected, but he sure created a monster.
All we need is an ex-GWB SoS claiming he's a Republican on TV lecturing Rs how they must be more liberal to survive.
At least Condi doesnt pull crap like that.
... which begs the question,
how did someone with such poor analytical and problem recognition skills get to the position of CJCS?
Powell is the racist, voting for the Black Man instead of his own party moderates Republicans MeCain & Romney.
Powell “feels hostility” from the GOP because he has broken his Oath. The man has no honor.
That’s ridiculous, Powell is the perfect poster boy for the GOP. Wishy-washy, stands for nothing.
NEW YORK (BNW) — Singer Harry Belafonte is holding his ground and on Tuesday refused to back down from his remarks last week calling Secretary of State Colin Powell a house nigger in the Bush administration. Belafonte said his problems are not with the man but with the policies Powell is supporting.
Belefonte admits that it has nothing to do with race but with disagreement. They spout racist comments when they know it has nothing to do with race but if someone on the right voices legitimate disagreement with policy, the left comes running to scream racism.
They’re nothing but race baiting neanderthal trash and if they don’t like it, they can kiss my gleamin white ass.
Or in other words, "Republicans are racist, just ask a Democrat"?. I'm shocked and dismayed.
I wonder if John Boehner is feeling any hostility from fellow republicans?
Obviously, Powell is not well read on American history.
Powell could have been President. He had the full support of the Republican Party, in the aggregate and in detail. He chose to say no. His statement is specious.
I feel hostility from Democrats because I’m white!
The hostility is because he’s not a conservative.
So you mean to tell me that Powell is just another whiny very rich, very successful black guy that thinks he is put upon by whites especially Republicans?
He is now and always been a pri@k.
Nerd just trying to be “down” with the administration.
Colin Powell would have trounced Monica’s boyfriend in the 1996 election. However, he did not want the job. Gutless wonder.
Any hostility I have toward that Obama enabler is because he is stupid, not because of his pigmentation.
What an idiot.
This is ridiculous. He was promoted by President Reagan and the first President Bush with strong GOP support. If he wanted it, he probably could have been the GOP nominee for president in 1996. He rejected the Republican Party, not the other way around.
Why is it that West and Keyes report no hostility from Conservatives?
The Colon is a race pimp and a liberal so no, he's not welcome by Conservatives, and as far as the GOP, who knows what's going on. Maybe he's miffed because he didn't get invited to the Bohemian Grove.
He’s like all the rest- a big chip on his shoulder.
Oh, horse$hit! Colin Powell is feeling the heat because he revealed himself to be a liar - he masquerades as a Republican, but then twice endorsed a Dem for President (who, coincidentally or not, is half black). Walter Williams, who also shares the irrelevant characteristic of being black, generates no such ire. Or, if you’d like an actual politician, the same applies to Allen West.
I think that at long last we’re about at the point where the Dems and the Dem-fellating media have cried, “wolf!” too many times to be believed. Calling someone a racist is now about as effective, through overuse, as calling someone a Nazi.
When are these people ever going to grow up and debate an issue on the FACTS, rather than a host of irrelevant factors?
Act like a conservative like col West for instance and you will magically be accepted. You are just another race baiting POS, Powell, not any different than the rev Al or Jesse Jackson. The problem is Marxism not color.
My hostility isn’t because he is black.
It is because he is a wish-washy, incompetent racist who supported Barack Obama because of their common skin color.
Steve Rattner - yet another white liberal who believes that he knows best about what black people think. Obviously, Rattner thinks that a black person like Colin Powell is incapable of speaking for himself.
I could give a rat’s rear end if he were lilly white; the man’s politics are pink(o) at best and that is the only colour that bothers me with respect to Powell.
The more we learn about Colin Powell the more I realize how scary it was to have him as a general leading our men and women.
Geez Powell. You let this little twit go out and speak for you?
Wow, I used to think he was cool.
Take a look at Colin Powell’s house:
You can tell HE is a member of the 1%!
How about hostility toward him for being a traitor in a uniform. This is what a whore this guy is- he licks the boots of the white man, when it is convenient for him. Then he licks the boots of the black man when the black man is his Master. Can’t have two Masters, Colin. Better get right in your heart.
Disgraceful that he would reduce himself to a pile of pigmentation.
This is such unadulterated bs, and the fact that the GOP lets this kind of crap stand without indignation and a very strong response is a big problem. The fact is that it is the Democrat party that constantly reminds minorities of ‘their place’ in society. Their ‘place’, according to Democrats, is as lap dogs for that party. If there is any remaining doubt of this, just look at the way conservative minorities are treated by liberals. This point needs to be made very strongly.
“...Colin Powell Feels ‘Hostility’ From GOP Because He’s Black”
no, it’s cuz he’s WRONG! I don’t give a rat’s a$$ what color his skin is! He could glow in the dark and have polka dots in the sun, and he’s still WRONG!
Don’t give a rat’s a$$ cuz he’s a retired general either. I can appreciate anyone serving in the military but it doesn’t make them an automatic person to follow or listen to when they’re out of uniform. God did give us a brain for a reason!
For that to be true, Powell would still have to be a Republican and he clearly isn't.
I would have voted for this ticket.
But I ended up voting for Virgil Goode instead.
To Colin Powell,
You’re a stupid bast@rd.
Well, HE is the one who chose his skin color over his principles...
So, turns out that Colin Powell is just another race hustler in the mold of Sharptoons and Jackasson. I wonder, was all high colonic Powell’s promotion in the military just more affirmative action run amok?
How about the fact that Colin Powell is a tool of the leftist elite, who is attacking the GOP for Obozo? I could care less what Powell's skin color is. There are many many tools of the left who are white, and for whom I have complete disdain. Liberalism is a mental illness from which there is no cure or treatment.
Which party made him secretary of state? Which party made condoleeza rice SoS? Powell has had plenty of opportunities and has no basis for any complaints of racism.
There very fact he claims racism after having enjoyed such success indicates he mst be getting senile
No it’s because he is actually a Democrat.
I wonder if there is a similar reason for hatred of the Eurorat Rattner?
