Why The Double Standard For Democrats?

Republicans, conservatives and Tea Party members (regardless of their skin color) are constantly being called racists by liberal Democrats. It's inevitable that if a member of one of the above groups disagrees with President Obama he or she will be ridiculed and be accused of racial bias - regardless of the stated reason for that disagreement. The state-owned media is quick to tell the American people about any remark or action done by the right that can possibly be interpreted as racist. For that reason, many Americans (including some Democrats) keep their personal opinions about President Obama to themselves lest they be labeled.

Even some liberal Hollywood stars have become disillusioned by Obama but very few speak out lest they be made by the media to appear racist. However, racist comments by Democrats mostly are overlooked by the media. From former President Bill Clinton to Vice President Joe Biden to President Obama himself, racist comments made by Democrats are ignored by the main stream media.

Below I have compiled a short list of racist comments made by Democrat politicians and other well known public figures. If a Republican had made any of these statements the media would have been calling for their heads (and their jobs.) But since they were made by Democrats they were largely overlooked. Here are some examples:

"A few years ago, (Barack Obama) would have been getting us coffee." -- Bill Clinton to Ted Kennedy.

(Obama will be a good candidate because he's) "a 'light-skinned' African American 'with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one." - Harry Reid

"I do not think it is an exaggeration at all to say to my friend from West Virginia [Sen. Robert C. Byrd, a former Ku Klux Klan recruiter] that he would have been a great senator at any moment. . . . He would have been right during the great conflict of civil war in this nation." -- Former Democratic Senator Christopher Dodd (D.,Conn.)

“Civil rights laws were not passed to protect the rights of white men and do not apply to them.” -- Mary Frances Berry, former Chairwoman, US Commission on Civil Rights

"Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November. Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness." --Mary Frances Berry, former Chairwoman, US Commission on Civil Rights

"Them Jews aren’t going to let (Obama) talk to me. I told my baby daughter, that he’ll talk to me in five years when he’s a lame duck, or in eight years when he’s out of office. …They will not let him talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is.” -- Jeremiah Wright

"There’s white racist DNA running through the synapses of his or her brain tissue. They will kill their own kind, defend the enemies of their kind or anyone who is perceived to be the enemy of the milky white way of life." -- Jeremiah Wright

"The white man is our mortal enemy, and we cannot accept him. I will fight to see that vicious beast go down into the lake of fire prepared for him from the beginning, that he never rise again to give any innocent black man, woman or child the hell that he has delighted in pouring on us for 400 years.” -- Louis Farrakhan

“White people shouldn’t be allowed to vote. It’s for the good of the country and for those who’re bitter for a reason and armed because they’re scared.” -- Left-wing journalist Jonathan Valania

When I was a young militant, I used to say all white folks were going to hell. ...'Then I mellowed and just said most of them were. Now, I am back to where I was.’" -- Joseph Lowery, who gave the benediction at President Obama’s inauguration

“You cannot go to a 7-11 or Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian Accent.” -- Joe Biden

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” -- Joe Biden

"I give interracial couples a look. Daggers. They get uncomfortable when they see me on the street." -- Spike Lee

“I want to go up to the closest white person and say: ‘You can’t understand this, it’s a black thing’ and then slap him, just for my mental health.” — New York City Councilman, Charles Barron

"We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops. They ought to go." -- Marion Barry

“The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t. But she is a typical white person…” -- Barack Obama

“That’s just how white folks will do you. It wasn’t merely the cruelty involved; I was learning that black people could be mean and then some. It was a particular brand of arrogance, an obtuseness in otherwise sane people that brought forth our bitter laughter. It was as if whites didn’t know that they were being cruel in the first place. Or at least thought you deserving of their scorn.” -- Barack Obama

“You’re not a member of the Taliban, are you?” – Chuck Hagel, Secretary of Defense, to an Indian man, Robin Gandhi, who is an assistant professor at the University of Nebraska, before Ghandi asked him a question.

“In about 18 months from now, hopefully [state Sen. Vincent Sheheen] will have sent Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from and this country can move forward.”– Former South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootlian

And just recently:

“It’s hard for me to explain how you work with a President who thought he could really deal with the Republican leadership. He really thought, and maybe it was the water they drink at Harvard, that he could deal with the tea party. They are mean racist people.” - Charlie Rangel, (D) Congressman, New York

The comments themselves aren't the subject of this post. It's the complete lack of reporting of these comments by the main stream media. When a Democrat makes an off-color or even blatant remark it is largely ignored by the media (except FOX, who is accused of bias if they report it, regardless of how true it is. But let that person be a Republican and they're all over it. Imagine if George W. Bush or Dick Cheney or George H.W. Bush, or Mitch McConell had made any of these statements. Chris Matthews can't even get through one show without calling Republicans racists. He would have reported on a Republican for weeks.

I know it's too much to ask but I'd like to see some honest reporting from the liberal, main stream media. When it comes to Obama and the Democrats the main stream media has no credibility. Some have even admitted being in the tank for Obama. And that's simply not journalism - it's state propaganda. You know - the kind they have in communist countries.
