The Unforgivable Republican Racism Against Ambasador Susan Rice

The Republicans twice proved that they were a racist party when they ran, not once, but twice, against Obama, hoping to deny an entire generation of black children a chance to grow up with a real role model who can teach them responsibility and good spending habits. And let’s face it, the Republican attacks on UN Ambassador Susan Rice are another reminder that the Republican Party is a bunch of crazy racists who rush to blame a black woman when she spends days lying about an attack on a US consulate.
If a white man had lied about the murder of four Americans, then he would have gotten a pass on it. Unless he’s a Southern European brother like Leon Panetta or a Mediterranean brother like General Petraeus. You don’t see anyone calling for the resignation of Joe Biden, because he’s a white man. Can you imagine if a black man were vice president and he went around the country saying crazy things all the time?
And what’s with all the fuss about Benghazi anyway? Is it because four white men died there? If four black women died in Benghazi do you think Republican Senators would be holding hearings about it? I don’t think so. It would be just another day in Chicago.
“It is a shame that anytime something goes wrong, they pick on women and minorities,” Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, the next chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, told reporters Friday at a Capitol Hill news conference.
And she’s right. It’s just plain racism. What do all the sacrifices of the Civil Rights movement amount to if a black woman can’t serve as a UN Ambassador and then enjoy complete immunity from telling crazy lies to the rest of the country?
Obama lied and told the country that he had to invade Libya because there was going to be a massacre in Benghazi. And then he lied and talked about a video when the massacre actually did happen. So why isn’t he being impeached? It’s because he’s half-white, isn’t it?
“How do you say that a person with Susan Rice’s background is not qualified? I wonder what your qualifications are for your job. Where did you finish in your class? I know one of them finished in the bottom of their class. Susan Rice was a Rhodes Scholar. How do you say a person like Susan Rice is not qualified? You may not like her, you may not like the administration, but don’t say she’s not qualified.” Fudge told Senator McCain.
And she’s got a point. The Secretary of State is America’s top diplomat. And what’s a diplomat but a liar with a college degree? Susan Rice has already proven that she can go on TV and lie day after day, in a way that no person with a gram of decency could, how is she not qualified for the job of Chief Liar of the United States?
No, there’s only one reason that Susan Rice’s nomination is being blocked. Racism.
