Here we go again. Virginia Democratic Rep. Jim Moran has proudly announced –- to an Arab television network, no less –- that the Democrats lost in November because American voters are raaaaacists.
It must have been late in the evening and all the important congressman must have already gone home when the Alhurra television director looked around the room and said to the reporter, “Go talk to that guy over there who’s been trying to get on camera all night.” They stuck a microphone in front of oddball Virginia Congressman Moran and the Democrat actually said his party’s losses are the result of today’s political environment being very similar to the period just before the Civil War.
“It happened … for the same reason the Civil War happened in the United States,” Moran said. “Southern states, particularly the slaveholding states, didn’t want to see a president who was opposed to slavery.
“In this case a lot of people in this country, it’s my belief, don’t want to be governed by an African-American, particularly one who is inclusive, who is liberal, who wants to spend money on everyone and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society. And that’s a basic philosophical clash,” Moran said.
A hat tip for this story to IHTM commenter WhiskeyRiver, whose comment serves as our closing line to this story:
“I would say he is right. I don’t feel “comfortable” having an African-American in the White House. Now, if we had an American in the White House, who happened to be black, I would have no problem at all.”
