Skip to comments.The Race-Baiting Hypocrisy Of Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin

olitics: Sen. Dick Durbin, who says Republicans have shoved attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch to the "back of the bus," once filibustered and opposed the GOP nominations of black and Latino appeals court judges.
Last week, Durbin accused Republicans of forcing Lynch, President Obama's African-American nominee to replace Eric Holder, to "sit in the back of the bus" until a vote on a controversial sex trafficking bill could be held.
That thinly veiled reference to the moment in 1955 when Rosa Parks refused to move from her seat in a Montgomery, Ala., bus was meant to paint Senate Republicans as racists. This came as news to Tim Scott, R-S.C., the first black elected to the Senate from the Deep South since reconstruction.
"It is helpful to have a long memory and remember that Dick Durbin voted against Condoleezza Rice during the 40th anniversary of the March (on Selma)," Scott noted.

My guess is whenever the donkey party needs someone to say something totally outrageous and undeniably hateful, just to get some red meat out to the media and their bat-sh*t insane base, they’ll trot out Dick Durbin - remember when he as much as said American troops in the Middle East were no better than Nazi’s?
Durbin’s the perfect candidate for a number of reasons - his senatorial seat is a lock no matter what kind of insanity he spouts, since a Democrat has to be at least as stupid as Carol Moseley Braun in order to lose the mind-numbed parasite machine voters in Illinois (and there are few sentient beings that dumb, even among the Democrats). And in order to prosper in the corruption and competitive viciousness of Illinois Democrat politics you have to have the heartlessness of a hit-man combined with the geniality of the neighborhood grocer - Durbin’s got that down to a T.
Yet another member of the criminal governing class who richly deserves an orange jumpsuit, but likely will never be fitted for one.
This guy is utter slime.
I wish FR had a thumbs up option.
You just used it!
This guy is why I believe in term limits.
DURBIN IS A RACE_BBAITING DICK PING
"If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags or some mad regime Pol Pot or others that had no concern for human beings," - Durbin
I can't say out loud, much less print, what I think of this POS.
DURBIN IS A RACE-BAITING DICK PING
Years ago a black comedian asked why today, after so much struggle, blacks prefer to sit at the back of the bus anyway...

DURBIN IS A RACE-BAITING DICK PING
Durbin is a truly reprehensible creature.
All of this court stuff has been caused by the Republican GOPES (gop elite statists) refusing to stand ground and duty to defend their constitutional separation of powers.
By first defunding those presidential amnesty edicts even it meant changing senate fillabuster rules to a simple majority vote citing the Hanen ruling as their excuse. Which would have restricted its use. But it could also be applied here when the vote comes up for her approval because of her stance on immigration . And would stick it to Dickhead’s claim.
