Wizard Free

So over time we've been treated to things like this:
There are white niggers.  I've seen a lot of white niggers in my time; I'm going to use that word.  Sen. Robert Byrd (D) WV, 2001
Didn't hear much about it from liberals, although if you bring up Byrd's past, they tell you he left his racist past behind.  OK, I accept that - people do reform.  Except that his bigotry apparently still wasn't left completely behind in 2001, and he was a liberal darling then.

Occupy Wall Street has presented us with a stereotype of rich greedy Jews...

....that is reminiscent of pre-WWII German anti-Jewish propaganda:

And so far the only liberal discussion of it is how it doesn't exist, despite video after video showing it does.

Then I'm pretty sure I heard comments this past week about Republican women being fascinated by black men:

No, no discussion of that.  I won't even go where that full discussion, once considered an ignorant stereotype of two different groups of people, goes.

And now David Gregory appears to have lamented that there's no Grand Wizard in the Republican party to push Herman Cain out:

Doesn't seem to be much in the way of horror at stereotyping a whole group of people as akin to Klan members.

Um, could somebody explain to me again how it is that I, as a conservative, am the bigot?


  1. On Martin Bashir's television program, Democratic strategist and MSNBC analyst Karen Finney said that Republicans are supporting Herman Cain because of his race:

    "One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy," Finney said. "I think he giving that base a free pass. And I think they like him because they think he's a black man who knows his place.

    Liberal comedienne Janeane Garafalo told Current TV host Keith Olbermann earlier this month that Cain is popular with Republicans because it "hides the racist element" of the party.

    The liberal MSM obviously has a deep seeded narcissistic hatred for Republicans and a black one allows them to project their true racist feelings... no surprise here... they despise all who do not goosestep along with them.

  2. @Stephen - Thanks. It's the double standard that frosts me.

    @JP - If I snagged them all the blog entry would go on for pages. And here's the thing I keep getting reminded every time I interact with liberals for very long: their liberalism always has a subtext. I.e. - "I accept everybody's beliefs (as long as I agree with it)", "Everybody has a right to their opinion (but if it's something I don't like then they are divisive)", etc.
