Harry Reid’s Negrogate

Harry Reid is in trouble, and I can’t help but be amused. Harry said that the anointed one (Obama) wasn’t black enough, and he didn’t speak ebonics unless he wanted to. Only Harry used the word “Negro,” which hasn’t been used by anyone under the age of my grandparents in years.

The anointed one immediately accepted his apology, as did that racial charlatan, Al “Tawana Brawley” Sharpton. The Democrats in the Senate and in the DNC all closed ranks behind him, as did the NAACP.

“Senator Reid’s record provides a stark contrast to actions of Republicans to block legislation that would benefit poor and minority communities — most recently reflected in Republican opposition to the health bill now under consideration,” CBC Chairwoman Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) said.

Apparently, the kleptocracy runs in a few different directions. It has always been clear that the thieves have taken money. That, after all, is the definition of thievery. It has also been clear to anyone paying attention, that the thieves have bought loyalty with some of their ill-gotten gains. Much like those farmers who spoke no ill of the James brothers, as long as the James’ kept giving them money, the recipients of the thieves’ largesse have been largely supportive of the kleptocrats. None of this should be terribly shocking. However, there is an important new lesson to be learned from “Negrogate.”

No matter the public apologies and debasements that Trent Lott went through in the matter of Strom Thurmond, it was not enough for the various and sundry black caucuses and groups. Lott was done in a leadership capacity in the Republican party. Lott’s mistake? Suggesting that not all of Thurmond’s policies would have been bad for America. Much like another southern senator, Robert Byrd, Thurmond had supported some racially exclusionary policies. Unlike Byrd, Thurmond was continually castigated by those who received the booty of political piracy. Byrd, however, notwithstanding his KKK membership, has been able to continue his political career.

The lesson in all of this? It is possible to purchase the right to be a racist. If a politician supports enough of what the black political power groups demand, he can call a “spade a spade,” if you will.  The further lesson is that racism, as a societal problem of race mixing, is overblown. Racism is now a tool to be used to silence people or groups that disagree. Whatever policy one opposes or supports, if it offends the left, one becomes a homophobe, a racist, a sexist, an elitist, or god knows what else. For all of the left’s angst about “McCarthyism,” it should be clear that they are now it’s leading practitioners.
