Here we Go Again with the “Race Card”

May 1, 2009

Well it seems the CHC has just took a card,  from the same deck as the CBC.  From Politico:

On Wednesday, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) released a fearmongering video, asking if Americans “feel safer” under President Obama. But one image in the video has caused outrage in Congress. After a shot of Obama shaking hands with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, the video cuts to an image of Obama meeting with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus

Yesterday, the group sent a letter to Boehner, demanding an apology “for the inclusion of the picture of the CHC meeting with President Obama in the video.” “The video posted on Congressman John Boehner’s official website is a completely inappropriate message for the leader of the minority party to send to the American people,” said Rep. Nydia Velázquez (D-NY), chairwoman of the CHC. Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ) called the video “not only inflammatory,” but also “racist.”

 

Now they are throwing out the race card by making the claim that a recent video is “racist”. So now, if you don’t agree or have the same ideas, nine times out of ten you will be called racist. Sickening. Never before have we ever seen anything like this. It is truly disgusting that elected officials find some usefulness in labeling people “racist” just because they hold separate beliefs. I am willing to bet my next five military pay checks that the Democratic party will lose and lose big in 2010 and 2012.  People are downright disgusted with this “racist” narrative that proves they are unable to articulate a point in a sentence without going for gutter tactics.

 

As a person who not only knows there history, I understand the pitfalls of constant false charges of racism. All it does is lessen the impact for those who actually experience it and will be ignored because people are going to believe it is being used the same way and reason it is being used now.  Organizations like the NAACP should really hold those in the CBC and CHC to task because they are literally destroying the true intent and purpose of civil rights.  Have they forgotten the story about the boy who cried wolf? Even more especially those who make there money by bringing *race* into every topic.

The people in this country will not put up with four years of listening to everything being *racist*. If the Republican party is so irrelevant, why do they care on the other side of the aisle? These are the things people think of. They ask themselves why if they are almost at 60 and can pass whatever they want, why do they spend so much time being bitter and playing the race card? After a while, listening to the race card gets redundant.

    Anything Our President does will not get the same treatment as any other President. I used to get upset that Fox news/the Right wing Republican party would get so mad about Obama, then I thought about it. They used to Kill, torture or Terrorize any African-American that acted Smart or capable. Nothing has changed. Only Now the Bottom is the Top and IF he wants to he can crush all this crap. But we as a people have learned to work within the system even when the system thinks they have got us. Do what you do My cousin, brother, uncle-President I your sister, cousin got your back and your families too.
