Libs Finally Prove Racism Does Exist Everywhere You Look in America

CCHQ does not engage in gotcha politics, nor the politics of race.  The former is petty and unpersuasive, the latter utter poison to our society.  But if the Left can be taken at their word–that racism exists between every nook and cranny–then Bill Clinton and Harry Reid (D) have certainly given the race-obsessed Left some ammo.  Oh wait, Dems, like racial minorities, can’t be racist.  Never mind.

I don’t believe Harry Reid or Bill Clinton are racists for saying what they did, here and here.  Don’t get me wrong, they may be a racist, but not based of what they said.  And we at CCHQ aren’t in the business of reading minds or monitoring private conversations like the Stasi in communist East Germany.  That’s why I’ve ignored these reported racial “gaffes” by Reid and Clinton, taking a more wait and see approach and suspecting we’d learn more from the fallout than from the actual gaffes (there are more Democrat gaffes like that where those came from, by the way).  I think I’ve seen enough now.

I was waiting for two things to happen.  First, for the GOP to pounce on these gaffes for political gain, and second the double-standard on the Left to unfold as the Democrats are once again given a pass for doing what the GOP is always lynched for.  Politics never dissapoints.  Both were utterly predictable because the Left has used the race history of this country and created a racial theatre for which everybody is forced to play their obligatory role, with the Right always cast as the racist neo-nazi Hans Gruber in Die Hard, the Dems always the white hero.  The result of the Left using racism for political ends solely against the GOP has actually cheapened the charge of racism.  No, that would be too kind.  Racism has been reduced to an utter joke in this country, for which I hold white Liberals completely responsible.

Racism is used by the Left solely for the purpose of destroying the Right.  They used it against Trent Lott who paid a political price for his infamous comment at Strom Thurmond’s birthday party, and against Gov. George Allen, who might be president today but for his “macaca” comment. And what the hell is a macaca anyway?  And you wonder why politicians are so scripted?  But these gaffes won’t crush Harry Reid or Bill Clinton.  They will not pay a price, because racism is for the purpose of destroying the Right and the GOP, not Democrats.

I don’t like to defend Harry Reid, not only because he’s a Democrat, but mostly because he’s a vile political opportunist who was ready to throw his country to the wolves for political gain.  Remember his “the war is lost, U.S. can’t win” comment?  THAT should have been the comment that sunk him.  CCHQ holds few people in deeper contempt than we do Harry Reid.  But here, with his “negro dialect” comment, he was only saying what he thought made Barack Obama more electable as a candidate, not whether he, Reid, would vote for Barack Obama or not.  If anything, he was implying you, America, are racist.  His comment was stupid, awkward, and clumsy–exactly what we should expect from Harry Reid.  But it did not contain an iota of racism.  He’s a loser.  But he’s not a racist.

Yet in the racial climate created by the Left where race is used solely for political gain, what’s the GOP supposed to do with this?  Ignore it?  That would be unilateral disarmament.  Or rather should they fight back.  I loathe to say it, but of course the latter, because racism in America today is theater and everybody has to play their role.  You don’t get to sit this one out the way we attempted to here at CCHQ, because in the bloodsport of American politics conservatives are always the villains, Dems always get the big pass, and decency counts for nothing.

My advice to Harry Reid?  Don’t resign.  As a Dem, your comment is not a career killer.  And more importantly, we want you exactly where we can find you come election day in November.


  1. Every country deals with race differently. The two biggest mistakes in American history once one gets beyond slavery: (1) forced integration by court rulings – you can’t force people to want to associate with, get along with, or respect you; and (2) affirmative action – no matter how one looks at it, it smacks of unfairness and does not make people respect you.

    What we have today are simply the long-term ramifications of bad racial policies. What is perhaps more fascinating is that many think that 50 years of legal integration has somehow negated or counterbalanced the treatment afforded blacks prior thereto.

    The reason that society is incapable of addressing the racial issue is because we view it from a perspective which is not conducive to real analysis. We talk all around the fundamental, underlying reasons for racism, and make it an emotional issue. How does one expect to cure the cancer without focusing on the cancerous cells and the biological reasons for cancer? Focusing on the symptoms is an ineffective mechanism to employ. Racism serves a far more complex pragmatic function than we are generally willing to acknowledge.

  3. Fifty years of the government involved in segregation has resulted in one undeniable fact. People (some) used to look down on blacks. Now superior attitudes have turned to hate and blacks are convinced they are the targets of racism. Forced integration did what for whom? Now blacks and whites are both unhappy with the situation. The very worst schools in my area are those with the majority of students being black. The very best schools in my area are the private ones with the majority being white and asian. Shouldn’t be hard to figure out why. Shame on forced interference. It doesn’t work. Not even going to bring up what is going on in Berkley, Ca. and the reasoning being it.

  4. […] saying.  The most recent example of this came from Harry Reid, who was given a big pass for his  “negro” comment where a conservative would have been made to pay big time.  Liberals get the big pass, […]
