Why are Democrats suppressing minorities?

First democratic leaders would not support Senator Roland Burris (D-IL) in his election bid.

He announced that he would not run back on June 9, 2009.

Then democrats publicly urged true democrat Alvin Greene to drop his senate bid after he was indicted on two charges of showing obscenity to a college student.

Greene refused to step down.

Now, democrats are pushing Democrat Kendrick Meek to step down in Florida senate race.

Why are democrats so racist?

It’s been revealed that the Obama White House is trying to beat Marco Rubio to keep Hispanic-Americans from having a choice when it comes to political parties. This is the second time Democrats have done this, and the fact that they’re willing to take down another minority candidate to do so shows that it’s the Democrats, not Republicans, who are trying to keep minorities down in America today.

Affirmative Action hits Wall St.

A little-noticed section of the Wall Street reform law grants the federal government broad new powers to compel financial firms to hire more women and minorities — an effort at promoting diversity that’s drawing fire from Republicans who say it could lead to de facto hiring quotas.

Deep inside the massive overhaul bill, Congress gives the federal government authority to terminate contracts with any financial firm that fails to ensure the “fair inclusion” of women and minorities, forcing every kind of company from a Wall Street giant to a mom-and-pop law office to account for the composition of its work force.

But here’s the kicker, Ms. Susan Collins, a RINO from Maine says:

“It is very sweeping, from my review of the legislation,” said Collins, who voted for the bill. “It talks not just about federal offices and agencies. It also talks about contractors and subcontractors, and so the implications are very unclear and can be read to require quotas, and that’s an entirely different and controversial debate and does not belong in the financial bill.”

Then why, why, why did you vote for this monstrosity?!?!  This whole thing is just a mess! This was like HCR 2.0.  Did she even bother to read the bill before she voted for it? If so, why vote yes on something that is full of things like this, that just don’t belong in a financial bill?  ARRGGHH!

There are no clearly defined quotas, or standards of diversity.  It’s up to whoever is in charge of implementing this nonsense – probably another soon-to-be-appointed Czar – to decide whether or not to enforce this Affirmative Action on these companies.  This bit especially gets me:

forcing every kind of company from a Wall Street giant to a mom-and-pop law office to account for the composition of its work force.

So, essentially, if your office doesn’t meet up with some arbitrary idea of what a “diverse workforce” should be, someone needs to get fired so we can hire a different skin tone.  How is that not racism?

And just where is this blatant racism coming from? Not Breitbart or the teaparties. Nope, it’s coming from the Federal Government.

Could this be the real reason the mainstream media dropped the Sherrod story like a hot potato last weekend?

Plain as day, Ms. Sherrod says that Bobby Hall, a Sherrod relative, was lynched. As she puts it, describing the actions of the 1940s-era Sheriff Claude Screws: “Claude Screws lynched a black man.”

This is not true. It did not happen.

WTG St. Louis Tea Party!

The St. Louis Tea Party had an all-hands-on-deck response to the NAACP’s plan to denounce the nationwide network of activists at its annual convention across the state in Kansas City. The NAACP as early as Tuesday could take up language to “repudiate the racism of the Tea Parties” and stand against the movement’s attempt to “push our country back to the pre-civil rights era.”

In a matter of hours, the St. Louis group drafted and fired off to the NAACP a resolution demanding the organization withdraw its “bigoted, false and inflammatory” statement. The missive accused the NAACP of resorting to political tactics and urged the IRS to reconsider whether it can continue to qualify for tax-exempt status.  (source)

You can read the St Louis Tea Party’s response to the NAACP here.

Keep in mind that the same NAACP that is claiming Tea Partiers are racist is the same NAACP that refuses to stand up for Kenneth Gladney, and is in fact backing the men who attacked him.

I can not speak for my local tea party, but I stand in solidarity with the St Louis Tea Party on this matter.
