BLOOMBERG WRITER: BLACK REPUBLICANS ARE A 'LOWER' GROUP
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/ ^ | 10 May 2014, 7:27 AM PDT | W.T.Huston

Posted on 05/10/2014 9:40:17 AM PDT by Resettozero

Bloomberg writer Francis Wilkinson recently wrote a piece claiming that Republican Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina--an African American--only became a senator because Republicans "lowered the bar" for his appointment. He also claimed that Scott’s candidacy serves as a "shield" for racist Tea Party members to hide behind.

In an article that is more invective than analysis, Wilkinson essentially called Senator Scott a do-nothing senator. He said Scott acted like a "shield" for racist, Confederate flag-waving Tea Party members who need someone to replace Herman Cain as the favorite candidate behind whom they can hide their racism.

Wilkinson made these assessments because Scott didn't get a Tea Party challenger even as so many other incumbents across the country did.

But the writer answered his own question in his own piece as to why Scott may not have faced a Tea Party challenger. "Scott placed himself so far to the right that there was no space for a Tea Party challenge on ideological grounds," Wilkinson wrote.

The columnist further reported that Scott "has an 'F' on the NAACP legislative scorecard" and a high score on the "right-wing Heritage Action scorecard--94 out of a possible 100."

It is insightfully telling that a white asshat like Wilkinson can call blacks anything he wants if it is in the name of denigrating Republicans or Conservatives.

It is equally telling that we don’t hear mainstream blacks crying out for HIS exile, HIS castration, HIS prosecution and denigration. If I were a black man, I’d be sorely pissed and ashamed at the same time.

When will someone point out publicly, and in the strongest way possible, that Blacks are on the Democratic plantation. And always have been. It's the Democratic liberals keeping them down; keeping them angry.

Growing tired of the lies. And even more sick the left constantly getting a pass on it. Always.

Unlikely in the extreme. White voters elected Hussein. Black voters would have voted for Hussein if he were caught in the act of raping a black baby girl.

Just saying...

:: they expect America to believe that someone who hates blacks will vote for one so that people won’t know they hate blacks ::

Yet if anyone inplies that US blacks voted for Obamugabe simply because he was black, then that’s racist; even if stated by a black citizen! (Hush chyle! Obama gonna bring you a mocking bird...or, well, a cell phone!)

Simply put, US blacks voted for Obamugabe because they saw a collective advantage to themselves personally in electing him.
Guess what...they got it.

In truth, they don’t give a crap about sleaze, corruption, misdeeds of any kind, even murder IF it is a get-over on whitey (I submit OJ Simpson as proof). THAT, and if they get their ‘taste’ of the loot.

This clown. Perhaps Breitbart's story will push this into the public awareness. Or as I see it, the public dullness. If not, we continue on our way wherever it is we're headed. BTW, Tim Scott is a decent man. Wilkerson, or whatever, is not.

So now, according to liberalthink, welcoming black members into the Tea Party movement is to hide racism. And if they were excluded what would that be?

For the record, females and blacks elected 0bama. Without the female demographic he’d not been elected either time.

Of course, two million plus of them were dead and gone on. But that's for another discussion (or rehash) later.

The left says the same about Clarence Thomas.

When it comes to their opinion of blacks who slip the liberal plantation leftists are the definition of the racists they complain about.

Of course it doesn't make any sense! Wilkinson, or whatever, has little or no idea what he is writing or what he is doing. He could be a probbie on 60-day approval hire who was assigned this hit piece (for some unknowable reason) by a lazy and hateful assignment editor.

Liberal blacks can play only one tune..."race"!

If anyone can name one truly liberal black (not Harold Ford, he doesn't qualify--too middle of the road) who has any other concern than race...I'll eat my hat.

Valerie Jarrett, Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Susan Rice, and others of this ilk. Need salt with that?

With all the ugly truths coming out in the IRS ‘Republican vote suppression’ scandal, NSA overreach, EPA corruption, negligent homocides by the VA, and Benghazi, it is not fantasy to believe that team Barry outright STOLE the 2012 election.

Sometimes, I think Thomas has gone a bit nuts from his isolation and all that has happened to him over the years.

I almost feel bad voting for Tim Scott's re-election but I will anyway. (Imagine the immense pressure of being a part of that special Senate club but NEVER EVER be truly accepted by the 99.)

The situation is, that the GOP does not ethnically define everyone.

That is in fact, the major difference between the viewpoint of white America, and the rest of the world.

Whites in America have given up racial definition for the most part. Even to a harmful extent. But they have.

Democrats define everyone and everything, all the time. So do Asians. Africans. South Americans.

Everyone but whites.

Whites are for some reason considered to be different.

That it in my view one of the main differences between the two parties.

I feel the Bloomberg writer is completely wrong on this.

Barack Obama, Eric Holder and their ilk are racist through and through...even though Susan Rice doesn't seem to be a racist. She's even married to a white guy

I think Susan is just a useful bureaucrat.

I'm not a black man, but as a man, I'm sorely pissed and ashamed of the white fag bastard that issued this garbage.

I'd like to see Senator Scott come face to face with this pansy and ask him to repeat his charges directly to his face.

I know Scott is a committed Christian and doubt that he would provoke an argument over this. He understands that being an only black and in a white Senate is not the largest obstacle facing him.

Progressives have it all figured out. It's like Glowbullwarming, if you don't vote for the black guy ... racist. If you do vote for the black guy ... racist.

Articles that explain how modern liberals suffer from a mental disorder.

[ Maybe the Democrat’s will classify them as 3/5th of a person. ]

The ironic thing is that if the south did count black slaves as 1:1 for matters of distributing representatives the House they would have steamrolled over the North and Slavery would have been legalized.

I really loathe how the Libs misinterpret how the 3/5 compromise was pro-slavery when it was actually the closest position to anti-slavery the north could have taken at the time.

Fredrick Douglas has written about the 3/5th thing and his say in the matter is very enlightening.
