When All Else Fails? Turn to Old Faithful: Your Racist

March 12, 2009

Old Faithful.  The one some turn to when all else fails.  The Race Card.  Message to Clyburn?  Um….that remark your so worried about that has a “racial” tone?  You asked why would Sanford use *Zimbabwe* as an example?  Matter of fact lets look to what Sanford stated:

“What you’re doing is buying into the notion that if we just print some more money that we don’t have, send it to different states — we’ll create jobs,” Sanford said. “If that’s the case, why isn’t Zimbabwe a rich place?… Why isn’t Zimbabwe just an incredibly prosperous place. ‘Cause they’re printing money they don’t have and sending it around to their different — I don’t know the towns in Zimbabwe but that same logic is being applied there with little effect.”

Now, lets look how you replied:

House Minority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) told me he thinks S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford’s quip comparing President Obama’s stimulus package to Zimbabwe’s economic policies are “beyond the pale” — and suggested they might carry a racial subtext.

“For him to compare the president of this country to Mugabe. … It’s just beyond the pale,” said Clyburn, who has sparred with Sanford over the Republican’s refusal to accept all the state’s stimulus funding.

Asked if his “beyond the pale” comment implied a racial overtone to Sanford’s remarks, Clyburn replied:

“I’m sure he would not say that, but how did he get to Zimbabwe? What took the man to Zimbabwe? Someone should ask him if that’s really the best comparison. … How can he compare this country’s situation to Zimbabwe?”

 

 

Now my reply.  Rep Clyburn, where in  the Govoners  remarks did he compare Obama to Mugabe?    Your exact words were:  “For him to compare the president of this country to Mugabe. … It’s just beyond the pale,” said Clyburn. Funny, I don’t recall any of that in reading Gov Sanford’s remarks.  But maybe I missed it.  Let’s look at it again  kay:

“What you’re doing is buying into the notion that if we just print some more money that we don’t have, send it to different states — we’ll create jobs,” Sanford said. “If that’s the case, why isn’t Zimbabwe a rich place?… Why isn’t Zimbabwe just an incredibly prosperous place. ‘Cause they’re printing money they don’t have and sending it around to their different — I don’t know the towns in Zimbabwe but that same logic is being applied there with little effect.”

No, still don’t see mention of Gov Sanford stating Obama and Mugabe are one in the same or mention of his name at all.  Elected officials like yourself is the reason we have to have affirmative action.  Because you spend so much time looking back to the past, you can’t even focus on the present.  Representative Clyburn, we, as African Americans cannot continue to use race as a crutch.  I think it may be time to change out the *old guard* so to speak and move some new blood through who understand the word “diversity”.  Meaning this wonderful country we live in, has people from all walks of life,  and demagraphics.  That understand the concept that individuals like yourself cannot just focus on your black constituents, but ALL of your constituents.    To stop using race as an excuse.  And you know what *excuses* really are dont you?  No?  Let me explain.  ” Excuses are tools of incompotence used to build monuments of nothingness and those who use them never excel in anything else”.

Because if you really cared about your constituents, you would know exactly why Gov Sanfords remarks were relevant to the conversation at hand.  So let me educate you for a moment and explain, what you should have known.  See Rep Clyburn, right now, there are some issues with President Mugabe because of his economic mismanagement which has caused hyperinflation.  Yet you ask why would Gov Sanford  use *Zimbabwe* as an example.  But I know I can’t expect to much from those who signed of f onto a trillion dollar blank check to be concerned with, well, the facts.  So I will do my duty and explain slowly why Zimbabwe is relevant since it seems you can’t look past the color of the hand in front of you.  It pays to discover.  The *your racist* theme is starting to piss me off.   Message? If you can’t debate the facts as they are, and not twisted to how you want them to be.  Well, do your constituents a favor and fire yourself and go home!

The reason Zimbabwe is being mentioned is because, *gasp*.  They have BEEN IN THE NEWS FOR PRINTING $100 TRILLION BANK NOTES YOU FOOL AND  THERE STILL BROKE!  Good grief, please, PLEASE  can we take all of these race baiting, racial pandering elected officials and load them up on a C130 and take themselves somewhere else to live with there kind on a island somewhere where they can play with there  deck of race cards all day?  Here is an idea.  Take them to the island they have all of those Generals on, the one where they only release the ball and chain to allow Secretary of State Clinton to come out on to give away awards and then put the shackles back on and send her back.  Ugh. She looked TIRED! What did they do? Pick her up and drove her straight to that crap?  They couldn’t waite a couple of days? She cant save the world 24/7  you know.
