Democrat Jim Moran, Violent Racist

Pages: 1 2

Congressman Jim Moran is an old white Democrat from Virginia who thinks he can judge whether we minority conservatives are acting sufficiently non-white enough. Moran’s an inveterate bully, a brawler, a crook and a bigot. And not one of his civility-preaching liberal colleagues has the courage to call him out.

Responding on cable news to GOP Rep. Allen West’s blunt criticisms of President Obama this week, Moran derided the retired U.S. Army colonel, who is black, as “not representative of the African-American community.” Moran then launched into the kind of tired race-traitor tirade I’ve heard from progressives of pallor for more than 20 years.

How dare we “people of color” stray from the left’s ideological plantation? If we choose personal responsibility over entitlement, capitalism over statism or self-determination over identity politics, presumptuous white liberals appoint themselves spokespeople for our forefathers and deciders of our true destinies.

To wit: Lt. Col. West “just seems clueless now that he has climbed aboard ship,” Moran fumed. “He’s climbed this ladder of opportunity that was constructed by so many of his ancestors’ sweat, sacrifice, blood, you know, they did everything they could for his generation to be successful. But now that he’s climbed on board ship, instead of reaching down and steadying the ladder, he wants to push it off.”

West, his father, his mother and his brother all dedicated their lives to military service; four consecutive generations of his family served in the U.S. armed forces. As a freshman congressman, West’s message has been a compelling agenda of self-empowerment. For this, he is savaged by a House colleague as a racial saboteur?

But Moran was just warming up. Next, he contrasted conservative West with big-government savior Barack Obama, who he said acted in proper accordance with his ancestors “by reducing college tuition and training our workers, trying to get a decent job for everybody” and leaving a “constructive legacy.”

Er, how’s the savior’s near double-digit unemployment, record food stamp enrollment, re-inflation of the housing and higher-education bubbles, and massive redistribution of wealth from the working class to the Wall Street bundler class working out for you?

Moran hailed Obama as “our Lion King” and compared his Republican detractors to the “hyenas in the background trying to cause trouble” for the White House. This bumbling chief of political correctness apparently is unaware that those hyenas in the Disney movie have been criticized for perpetuating negative stereotypes about blacks and Hispanics.

Dog-whistle politics, anyone?

Do Moran’s constituents in Virginia’s 8th district support his incessant race-baiting? Last year, he accused Tea Party activists of racism for sweeping out entrenched Democrats in the November 2010 midterm elections. It “happened for the same reason the Civil War happened in the United States. It happened because the Southern states, the slaveholding states, didn’t want to see a president who was opposed to slavery,” he ranted to Arabic-language television network Alhurra. “(A) lot of people in the United States don’t want to be governed by an African-American, particularly one who is liberal, who wants to spend money and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society.”

    The race card and race baiting will always be employed by the Left, even though normal people are becoming immune to it.

    The coarseness, vulgarity, and corruption that exists in Congress and this administration must have our founding fathers turning over in their graves. Most serve as an embarrassment and objects of ridicule.

    Moran's persona is more suited to be a regular at a corner Pub, or serving as the old uncle who embarrasses the entire family when in the company of more than one other person.

    This article should have been called "Democrat Jim Moran,Pathetic Fool."

  • Red Maryland

    Great article by Michelle Malkin; however, she might have also mentioned that
    Jim Moran has supported the Saudi Academy in Alexandria; and has supported
    and/or turned a blind eye towards the spread of Sharia in Virginia.

    The people in The 8th district of Virginia need to wake up along with all the other miss informed people in this country. Government is not our crutch to succeed in life. We need to pull our selves up and take this country back from the idealogs who pay absolutely no attention to the Constitution. Obama said he was going to fix the problems in this country, provide transparency, He said there was to much spending going on in the Bush administration. He said if he didn't solve our problems within 3 years that he wouldn't deserve a 2nd term. Well he hasn't even come close. He has made things worse, by spending 3 times what the last administration did, he was not even close to being transparent when they rammed through Oboma Care. Lets all wake up and smell the writing on the wall. If Oboma is re-elected we are all doomed…………………………

    Has Jim Moran EVER condemned Louis Farrakhan, the most VILE racist in America? Has he EVER criticized Rev>Jesse Jackson of "Hymietown" notoriety? Lest no forget that impeccable pillar of the Democrat party, and POTUS mentor, the right Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Jim Moran is a Scum bag.

  • Anamah

    How in the world this stinky congressman is allowed to keep the place!!! He doesn't represent any of the American values and should be prosecute as we speak. Contrary to the so suspicious Moran, Representative Allen West has a place of honor and trust and he has an important role representing us as Floridians and all American soul, regardless skin color.

  • choi

    Moran is also a KNOWN ANTI-SEMITE.
    He's a poster boy for ALL that's WRONG about today's Democratic Party.
    One can be certain at his AGE that Moran was a part of the RACIST DEMOCRATIC/DIXIECRAT Party which STILL CONTROLS much of Southern Local Politics/Public office.

    Only in bizzaro land could a lilly white member of the Liberal gentry credibly lecture a black veteran serviceman about serving his community and cite a mulatto community organizer, whose role model is dead white plagiarizing neo Marxist thug like Saul Alinsky, who came from a life of privilege, who moved ahead by playing the race card from both ends, who has never had a private sector job in his life, as a model to all black citizens.

  • Toa

    A clear terminal case of Non-White Conservative Derangement Syndrome. Moran and his kind are frightened to death of the mere possibilty that a number of black Americans will sit up and take notice of Col. West and what he stands for.

    And "Liberals" JUST CAN'T HAVE a patriotic, self-sufficient black population which knows it can move along without the "help and protection" of rich, patronizing white "Liberals" who keep them dependant on taxpayer-funded handouts, now can they????

    Allen West…when he first came out, I thought he might be a strong candidate. But that's how it's been progressing for Republicans, right? When they first come out, they look pretty strong.

    Then they start opening their mouths. Oops!

    Allen West is a guy who clearly doesn't know sht from shinola, but he sure knows how to run his big mouth. I doubt he has much of a future as a politician, but I'm certain he'll be employed as a pundit somewhere. You know–a job where you can still be "popular" among mouth breathers, but that doesn't involve actually legislating or governing.

    If all the leftists are blue collar workers and earn the average wage, then they can claim they represent the opressed. Otherwise they are just pretending and use their ideology to exploit the opressed.
