The Washington Post and Double Standards


Pages: 1 2

Has Perry himself actually used the racial epithet that was once painted on the rock — you know, like the late former KKK leader Robert Byrd did as recently as 2001 when he referred to “white n–gers”?

Did Perry condescendingly refer to a black politician as “articulate and bright and clean” like Joe Biden did when he described Barack Obama in 2007?

Did Perry racially stereotype Hispanics for political gain or refer offensively to President Obama’s “light skin” and “lack of a Negro dialect” like Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid did just last year?

What does it all say about Rick Perry? Nothing. Nada. Zip.

While the Post cites unnamed minority pols decrying Perry’s right-wing “racially tinged rhetoric,” this is the guy who has indulged in left-wing impulses and disparaged his own base as racist in two separate GOP debates. First, he shamelessly suggested that opponents of in-state tuition discounts for illegal aliens were xenophobes who didn’t like the sound of foreign last names. Then, he told them they were haters who lacked compassion: “I don’t think you have a heart.”

That sounds a lot like the very suggestion the Macaca Media is leveling against him.

It stinks to be falsely accused of racism. Maybe Perry, now under siege by the ruthless race card-playing media, will remember that the next time he’s tempted to accuse conservatives who disagree with him of heartless bigotry.

    Many racist dismiss this rock story and Journalist like to twist it as if well they did it too. Gov. Perry is proud of his rock and showed it off to his friends. Herman Cain lived to see the hate/racism but took orders to defend Perry and excuse the word. What will shock the Racist Tea Party/Republicans and Koch Bros. when they learn even whites think the word/rock is wrong. We have come a long way since the KKK was in charge and we aren’t going backward no matter how many minorities the Koch Bros buy. Hank Williams learned calling the President Hitler can cost you your job. Many Republicans who were Racist like Grover Norquist have married a minority and now have mixed children. Some Law Makers and even a special US Supreme Court Justice have colored girlfriends so this makes it difficult. Remember our KKK leader Strom Thurmond who fought to get the south and it’s racism to raise again only we learned in his death the old man had/love/supported his black daughter. Yes we learned 25 year old Strom raped his 16 year old maid and produced a baby girl. The 16 year old was taken away but it seems young Strom fell in love with the black maid which showed by his love for their daughter. How many other Law Makers spilling their deep racism have a secret like Thurmond.
