Harry Reid: We’re not gonna let “five white men” have the last word on Hobby Lobby
Hotair ^ | 07/09/2014 | Ed Morrissey

Have we reached Peak Reid Demagoguery yet? I thought we had yesterday when Democrats signed onto Harry Reid’s Kochsteria strategy for the 2014 midterms, but we actually missed the new nadir for America’s top-ranked demagogue — but our good friend Larry O’Connor at the Free Beacon didn’t. Yesterday, when addressing the media about the Democratic strategy to undo Hobby Lobby, Reid insisted that the Senate wouldn’t let “five white men” have the last word on contraception mandates.

Um …

“The one thing we are going to do during this work period, sooner rather than later, is to ensure that women’s lives are not determine by virtue of five white men,” Reid said. “This Hobby Lobby decision is outrageous and we are going to do something about it. People are going to have to walk down here and vote.”

Someone‘s confused, and I’m pretty sure it isn’t this man, one of the five in the majority on the Hobby Lobby decision:

What, exactly, did race have to do with this anyway? It was a gratuitous swipe, a reflex reaction by a man so consumed by poisonous demagoguery and “vilification” that he seems to have become demented by it. It exposes just how dishonest and ignorant Reid has become during his long tenure in the US Senate.

So, the Supreme Court is not going to have the last say? We’re in so much more trouble than I every imagined.

I would LOVE to see those “five white men” on the SCOTUS publicly call out this insufferable piece of crap from Nevada for his remarks.

Call a press conference, and demand a public apology from Reid for his racist remarks.

Harry Reid, proof that there’s political life after senility. And giving Joe Biden a run for the “What the hell did he just say?” award.

This is why we need the Senate in 2014. Then impeach King Obama.

Reid's handlers apparently get his talking points from Twitter, where leftists were quick to make this mistaken assumption.

Not stupid at all. This is a calculated, focus group tested strategy to turn out their unmarried women, black, Mexican etc. voters in the November elections.

He’s just saying what all libs believe,,,that there is no such thing as a non-white person who isn’t a liberal. Since thats what they believe, he HAS to be white.

He’s not stupid. This is about stampeding the gullable, and their checkbooks, into the Democratic Party and Proglodyte Movement.

There were several articles this morning about how homosexual orgs ate dropping their support for ENDA. Even the one in the WaPo made no bones about how closely extreme rhetoric on stuff like this is tied to fundraising.

And the Dems are going to have a tough year fundraising. So they really need to stoke their own extremists with this kind of hyperbolic rhetoric.
