Progressive intolerance in the name of tolerance?
Of course liberals just dismissed this, because they just hid behind the lame excuse that they couldn't be racist or bigoted due to them being liberals. When black conservative Ken Blackwell ran for Governor of Ohio, the left didn't take too kindly to that.
When Michael Steele ran for Governor here in Maryland, the left portrayed him as a "sambo", "minstrel". When he became the first black chairman of the Republican National Committee, the left wasn't interested in his historic achievement as a black man.
As you can see, there is a clear pattern to the left's intolerance to those who are not white and are conservative or even moderate like in the case of Joe Lieberman. Frankly, I didn't even come close to remotely scratching the surface. I will however present one more person that the left has an issue with. She's a black woman who in the left's eye doesn't know here role so to speak. Glo Smith is running for congress in the Florida 5th congressional district. One would think that elections should be won or lost on the issues. A person's skin color shouldn't be an issue, well if that candidate isn't white and is conservative of course the left is going to make it an issue every time. This is a picture of Glo Smith speaking at one of her political events
Now of course all liberals aren't racially hard wired like this, but the ones who aren't are fraudulent, when it comes to pointing their fingers at the right and shouting racism. Those on the left who truly embrace diversity including ideological diversity needs to ask themselves why other liberals feel that minorities are suppose to embrace their views exclusively or else. As a conservative who is black, I welcome other blacks who chose to be conservatives, liberals, moderates, democrats, republicans, libertarians, green party or constitutional party members or simply chose to be unaffiliated. Why do some liberals act out in a racial manner? Do they realize that every time they racially attack blacks for doing nothing more then opposing them on policies, they are making themselves out to be the real racists they claim the right is? I remember some on the left calling Condi Rice an "Aunt Jemimah". I've asked liberals who called her this how does a a woman who was a child prodigy, who holds a Doctorate Degree, speaks 3 languages fluently, plays classical piano, was the former Secretary of State and National Security Adviser and is a college professor be compared to a fictional maid like black woman on a bottle of syrup. As you may have guessed, I have yet to get an answer.
