So this is a nice reminder that Democrats are big fat hypocrites (surprise). However, what I want to repeat is this comment, from someone calling him- or herself Laka:
If there were such a thing as a thinking racist, he would enthusiastically support most Democratic policies because they (1) deprive minorities of education (in the name of supporting unions,) (2) increase violence in minority communities (in the name of gun control and criminal’s rights,) (3) increase unemployment in minority communities (in the name of regulating employers,) (4) increase despair in minority communities ( by promoting victim-status consciousness-raising,) (5) increase social chaos by redefining marriage (in the name of equal access to government benefits,) and on and on and on.
If there was such a thinking racist, you might be able to recognize him if he promotes such policies for others, but avoids the harmful consequences for himself. Just like Terry McAuliffe is doing for his own children.
If Republicans were really racists, as we are so often accused of being, we would be Democrats.
If Republicans were really racist, we would, in fact, be Democrats–you know, like the founders of the KKK and inventers of Jim Crow.
“As long as we’ve got to fight to make sure women have access to quality, affordable health care, and as long as we’ve got to fight to protect a woman’s right to make her own choices about her own health, I want you to know that you’ve also got a president who’s going to be right there with you, fighting every step of the way,” said Obama. “Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.”
