Race Baiting 101

The Democratic Party has resorted to its deck of race cards in order to push through the appointment of former LA RAZA member and current nominee for the Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor.

Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, threatened the Republican Party stating, “I just think that their voting against this good woman is going to treat them about the same way that they got treated as a result of their votes on immigration”. He was backed by activists representing civil rights, Hispanic and women’s groups. In this way he was making it clear that the Democratic Party is using such groups to advance Sotomayor’s nomination, as he fielded an unstated assumption to race bait Republicans.

The choice of a Supreme Court judge nominee, who was once a member of La Raza, was guaranteed to solidify the rank and file of the Republican Party against her. This nomination was designed to paint Republicans as prejudiced and to garner the support of minority groups. It is not the result of the post-partisan and post-racial promises that Obama made on the campaign trail. The choice was made to inflame racial tensions for the benefit of the Democratic Party.

It’s ironic that this nomination took place at the same time as the recent arrest of Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. The knee jerk reaction of Gates and the leftwing race baiting machine was to accuse the arresting officer of racism. President Obama quickly weighed in to support his friend (Professor Gates) and condemned the Cambridge Police Department’s handling of the case by saying that they “acted stupidly”.

This led Obama to rant about racial profiling:

“…there is a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcing disproportionately. That’s just a fact… …And even when there are honest misunderstandings, the fact that blacks and Hispanics are picked up more frequently, and oftentimes for no cause, casts suspicion even when there is good cause. And that’s why I think the more that we’re working with local law enforcement to improve policing techniques so that we’re eliminating potential bias, the safer everybody’s going to be.”

Long time race baiting advocate and former prominent Democratic Party politician, Jesse Jackson, chimed in about racial profiling:

“This issue of Dr. Gates being a victim of excessive force and bad judgment is a much bigger subject...This one case could open up the issue of the pervasiveness of race profiling.”

However, the accusation of racial profiling fell apart when it was discovered that the arresting officer, Sgt. James Crowley, taught a class for five years at the Lowell Police Academy on how to avoid racial profiling.

The politics of race baiting needs to be laid to rest…

Calling a Republican "racist" is simply a Democrat's way of saying, "Shutup!"

And so long as Republicans flinch or take offense, they'll continue to do so.

I agree to a certain extent, but the real problem lies in the general public... the Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Independents, etc...

The tolerance of race baiting is wrong and this type of behavior is actually encouraged.

It's encouraged every time we flinch.

It continues because it works. You would think a Harvard professor would know what racial profiling is and you can bet he does.

I would think with that haircut you would be weary of racial profiling.

Gee... it is the 21st Century, when will the leftwingers catch up?

When whites become a minority it will get really interesting. Lets see how they try to keep their reverse-racism machine churning away then. I think that they are feeling the heat now and need to capitalize on their politics of victimhood before its too late.

Notice there arent too many studies done to emphasize the progress that minorities are making financially and socially.

Leftwingers in academia make most of such studies and that kind of data does nothing to advance their political agenda... Every once in a while I see a study on the subject, but they are overshadowed by victimhood studies. Those are leftwing bread-winners.
