20 great moments in liberal bigotry

by editor on January 14, 2010

Do not make the mistake of thinking Harry Reed’s recent comment that President Obama might be electable because he’s light-skinned and doesn’t have a negro dialect is an isolated event.

In fact, there are so many inappropriate liberal comments that we’re thinking of opening The Liberal Bigot Hall of Fame to honor the best of the best. Each of the following liberal icons would get a nice brass plaque featuring their face and most bigoted quotes.

Of course, Robert Byrd (D-WV) was a unanimous first round selection into the Hall.

Price of admission:
Adults $10
Children $5
Blacks, Jews, Indians and any other minorities not allowed.

And now, without further delay, here are 20 remarkably bigoted comments made by liberals.

“You’d find these potentates from down in Africa, you know, rather than eating each other, they’d just come up and get a good square meal in Geneva.”
- Senator Fritz Hollings

Blacks and Hispanics are “too busy eating watermelons and tacos” to learn how to read and write.”
- Mike Wallace

“In the days of slavery, there were those slaves who lived on the plantation and [there] were those slaves that lived in the house. You got the privilege of living in the house if you served the master … exactly the way the master intended to have you serve him. Colin Powell’s committed to come into the house of the master. When Colin Powell dares to suggest something other than what the master wants to hear, he will be turned back out to pasture.”
- Harry Belafonte

“A handkerchief-head, chicken-and-biscuit-eating Uncle Tom.”
- Spike Lee referring to Clarence Thomas

“Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”
- Robert Byrd

“I am a former kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan in Raleigh County and the adjoining counties of the state …. The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia …. It is necessary that the order be promoted immediately and in every state of the Union. Will you please inform me as to the possibilities of rebuilding the Klan in the Realm of W. Va …. I hope that you will find it convenient to answer my letter in regards to future possibilities.”
- Robert Byrd

“I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”
- Lyndon B. Johnson

“You f*cking Jew b@stard.”
- Hillary Clinton

‘Hymietown.’
- Jesse Jackson describing New York City

“Jews — that’s J-E-W-S.”
- State Senator Bill McKinney explaining why his daughter Cynthia lost in 2002

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

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 folks was in caves while we was building empires… We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.”
- Rev. Al Sharpton

“The white race is the cancer of human history.”
- Susan Sontag

These negros, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they’ve never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness.
- LBJ

“I am not going to use the federal government’s authority deliberately to circumvent the natural inclination of people to live in ethnic homogeneous neighborhoods.”
- Jimmy Carter

I mean, you’ve got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”
- Joe Biden (referring to Barack Obama)

I can only laugh my a$$ of at anybody who thinks that politics is the road to equality & better race relations. That has never been the arena where progress has been made. It has been in sports, music, & food that have really broken down those walls. Because people must prove themselves in those areas, race means nothing. If you are good, you are good. Your not good for a white guy, your not good for a black guy, & your not good for a girl. That’s crap, but it still goes on. Black quarterbacks, white wide receivers, black hockey players, white guys who dunk, black golfers, & I could go on, it does’nt matter.
Same goes in music, white rappers, black rockers, girls that rock, whatever. If you are good, people will know.
Then we go out after the game & try each others food & go, hey this is good. What’s the best way to make it.

danybhoy, that is some really, really hopeful thinking. Sports, music, and food make everything alright.
Tell that to the folks who are not able to enjoy a game at the ballpark, because they are used by the left and kept on welfare from cradle to grave! Can’t afford to go out for dinner, can’t afford to go to a concert, or buy a cd.
Race relations in this country are 100% driven by politicians. They strive to keep the poor under the “ownership” of the G-through welfare and other types of entitlements…and right now, the racist in chief, is trying to put the whole country under the G’s thumb, by putting us all on welfare in the form of gubment health care, and by taxing us to the extent we cannot afford not to go on welfare.
You have a wonderfully hopeful and optimistic view of the world, but unfortunately, that isn’t how the world turns, especially not our little corner of it.
Racial tension will go on and on as long as Liberals make it a major issue. They force things like “affirmative action” which is rationing success to those they deem deserving, whether they truly are deserving through hard work, or not. They force quotas in hiring, and there are more on the way-which again, makes for huge tension, especially when they are killing tests in public service jobs, so that dummies can get the jobs (see chicago police, and NJ State sgt’s tests).
It is nasty stuff, this racism that is spurred on by psychos on the left-but alas, it is a way of life here in the states, because that ideology of gubment intervention, entitlement, and continued slavery of the downtrodden and the have-nots will always be the way of the Dumbocrats.
Sure wish you were right though-that sounds like Nirvana to me!

MH, I don’t think that sports, music & food make everything alright. But it is those areas that forced progress in areas of race relations faster then politics ever has or could do. I believe the reason is that the goals are different. In politics, there people who will sell out everything & everybody for power. If that means that racial tensions need to be high all the time to be exploited for political power, it shall be done. In sports, all you want to do is win, you want the best people at their sport on their team. The best are the best, race means nothing, national origion means nothing, can you play? Can you win? That’s it, nothing else matters.

My point is that it is sports, music & food that help move race relations forward, it is politics that damages race relations. I have no illusions that everything is great on the race front today, but I do see where race is a problem & where race is not. It is clear to me where we make progress on this issue, & it not with our elected officials. The pols are usually several steps behind the people, & with the currnet crop of pols, that won’t change.

It is sadly a free pass by blacks, hispanics and the MSM. As long as they continue to get free food stamps, cash benefits and government healthcare programs at no cost because they choose to not work, they will allow it. I would like to see my fellow black friends begin standing up to this and start taking a meaningful position in their lives against the clear and offensive behavior against people of color by the liberals.

It happens. The thing is that whenever a person of color be it Black or hispanic or asian (like that lady that comes on Fox a lot or Juan Williams or whomever) either in public or private life comes out and stands for libertarian and/or conservative values or positions they are squashed down and called names and booed and uncle tom’ed and so on and so forth. The big dog that barks the loudest and has the biggest forum sadly is the one that drowns out the voices of common sense. Not all blacks, hispanics and others are the same or live on food stamps or cash benefits even if they would need them. Do not promote the stereotype, no one wins.

When you come down to it, all of us are of color, otherwise we would be called Albinos. My definition is lacking any kind of color. I am Caucasian not white.

There are two types of people.

Ones that attempt to do right and the other.

The trouble is there are to many ignorant people out there.

The Politicians stir the pot by using the race card(divide and conquer)

It’s coming Chris. Hatemongers like Al Sharpton, et.al have played the race card so many times that it’s like a cliche and no one is listening any more–the little boy has cried wolf too many times. There’s only one race on this planet–the human race.

I don’t understand why people continue to generalize. I didn’t vote for Obama. I am black. I am certainly not a fool. I am sure a lot of Jews would feel the same way. Generalizations like this is the hallmark of ignorance and perpetuates the problems that we are having in this country.

I understand why you would think that about generalizations, but blacks & jews do vote overwhelmingly democrat. I do get it to some extent with jews, & it’s because most are socially liberal, & many also hate Israel & blame them for the conflict they have always been engaged in. Blacks seem to have been bought off by LBJ’s “Great Society” crap. Most black folks I know are fairly conservative socially, but too many seem to have embraced the victimhood preached by Revs Al & Jesse, & that’s sad. Blacks vote democrat, I get it, in the general election, that made sense. But in the primary vs Hillary, the black vote went overwhelmingly Obama, & I think THAT was about race, since Hillary & Obama are very similar politically, both very liberal, so I almost have to believe it was about race. Am I wrong?

Perhaps it is best to say a good number or a vast majority instead of the Jews and Blacks alone as that can lead to the generalization that all jews and Blacks vote democrat or liberal which is a fallacy. So when you say blacks it is best to say some numbers or some percentage, etc. . Most black people are conservative socially (hence why proposition 28 failed), but yes there are SOME that do subscribe to liberal agendas and even though black (social and/or fiscal/governmental) conservatives may be a minority within the black community they do exist. It would be a fallacy for me to say “Whites fall into the idea that their country is being taken away from them by people of color” right? There may be some whites that do but not all and I certainly dont think it is a majority either.

The greatest racist hits of liberals…Damn that’s powerful stuff. Yet like that Janeanene Buffalo (Garafalo) woman she will never accept it and keep insisting Herman Cain has been bought and paid for by conservatives to prove they are not racist. That should have been high on the list. Its that kind of thinking that shows just how stupid and racist liberals are.

Liberals just seem to be so out of touch with the people they represent.
I actually agree with Senator Byrd though. We should talk less about race and focus on individuals. Talking about racism all the time spurs more racism.

Patti I agree with the statement about talking about race, Since we are all humans and are pretty much the same except for some shades of color. Who cares what color you are? It’s whats inside the person that counts. There are shit disturbers in all colors, and there are some wonderful people and they come in all shades. but the guy who you are quoting was a member of the KKK at one point, and I don’t care how much he pretended to be reformed, he was still evil. Who Knows what evil lurks in the hearts of man?

In 2008, people voted into office a bi-racial president with a Muslim father because he offered a message of hope to the people of America. When those people later disagreed with plans that were being put forth by this president because they saw something wrong in it, those very same people who voted for him were called racist. Honestly, the grand majority of us do not care about skin color anymore…we care about the content of one’s character, just as Dr. King’s message says. It is only those who make money or get power from the belief that every “white” person is racist who keep stirring the pot and creating anger towards persons innocent of those crimes, and turning bored young people with little hope into murderers.
