Harry Reid Slammed By Hometown Paper For ‘Race-Baiting’
DailyCaller ^ | 7/12/2014 | Chuck Ross

The largest newspaper in Nevada is taking Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to task, saying that the Democrat’s recent comments about Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas highlight a pattern of race card rhetoric.

“Harry Reid is the da Vinci of distraction,” reads the editorial from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, which was posted online Friday.

“The moment any scandal, policy failure or political defeat crashes down on him — and there have been plenty the past few years — the Senate majority leader unleashes outrageous rhetoric,” the editorial continues, adding that Reid “has become especially fond of slinging race cards just to crank up the outrage.”

Back in ‘08 didn’t Reid in trying to find something positive to say about candidate Obama say that Obama didn’t have a “Negro dialect” unless he wanted to use one, or something similar? He is the antithesis of MLK’s colorless society. Racist.

Reid is such a lowlife scumbag. If it weren’t for the union thugs in Vegas, I don’t think Reid would ever win an election.

Reid said Obama was "a light-skinned African-American with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."

That would have been a career ending comment had Reid been a member of the GOP.

Reid is worthless as a human being. He wins elections because the unions poor untold millions in to his campaigns.

We are in a time when the mere mention of race is politically incorrect. All one need do to verify that is mention that someone is black. But Reid knows he gets a pass because he and the media are in the same camp. That's what makes this article so incredibly unbelievable.

Well, it’s true, Harry Reid is really a racist and a sexist. He really hates women and he degrades Blacks and Hispanics

“Never mind that Sen. Reid himself, like the entire Senate Democratic leadership, is as white as an Irishman in a snowstorm.”

Hey, I resemble that remark. Growing up sharkbait white in Beach Boy southern California, while all our friends tanned at the beach, we could only sunburn.

I wonder how long it will be before the IRS audit or the Holder justice department “investigation” of this paper?

I think at minimum the editorial staff can expect to be audited.
