A no-brainer. Who else rushes so eagerly to exploit and worsen every inflammatory racial situation going. Who else—after the notorious Tawana Brawley hoax (in which he falsely accused six white men of raping a 15-year old black girl); and the racial conflagration in Crown Heights, Brooklyn (where a Jew was stabbed to death after he inflamed local blacks by proclaiming, “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house,”); and the Freddy’s Fashion Mart tragedy (wherein seven died when one of his followers burst into the Harlem store of the merchant he’d denounced as “a white interloper” and set the place ablaze); and all the countless other ugly offenses against fundamental decency, would have the sheer shamelessness to call the millions of patriotic, small government activists of the Tea Party racist? Who else would eagerly inflame passions nationwide by rushing down to Florida to exploit the death of a 17 year-old before any of the pertinent facts are in? Bottom line: who else has so long and disgraceful a history of vicious and destructive race baiting? Well, okay, maybe…
Jesse Jackson (@RPCoalition)
The race monger’s race monger, a man who knows no embarrassment and NEVER learns. 1984: New York is “Hymietown,” (“explaining” afterward he assumed the slur would not be printed because of his “racial bond” with Washington Post reporter Milton Coleman, to whom he’d said it.) 2010: ”You can’t vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man.” 2011: the Tea Party “intend to take the government and take it backward. This is a civil war, and you are with the union or the states righters… they want to undermine the 13th, 14th, 15th Amendments.” 2012: Trayvon Martin “was killed because he was black,” and “targeting, arresting, convicting blacks and ultimately killing us is big business” in America.
Morris Dees (@SPLCenter)
The head of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which decades ago fought the KKK but today keeps its vast fund raising machine churning by viciously slandering mainstream conservatives. Among the organizations the SPLC has smeared as “hate groups” that seek “to make bigoted and discredited ideas respectable” are the American Enterprise Institute, the Family Research Center, the American Family Association and Concerned Women for America. Which “bigoted” ideas? Opposing illegal immigration, government-sponsored racial preferences and gay marriage. As the super-salesman of hate mongering, Dees himself has become a multi-millionaire.
