Unbelievable. Post-racial? A joke. Treating fellow Americans as fellow Americans? Forget it. Before Florida's Allen West became the only Republican member of the Congressional Black Caucus, I don't know when the last time they had a Republican in their clique. It's had only Democrats since at least 2006; even here, they won't even allow fellow Democrats who aren't black to join (the CBC wouldn't allow Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen to join, even though the majority of his constituents in the district in Memphis he represents are black).
The chairman of the CBC is Rep. Emmanuel Cleaver (D-MO). He recently appeared at a forum held be Rep. West, and was asked some pointed questions by The Daily Caller's Nicholas Ballasy (there is a video at the link as well). Cleaver's answers are illuminating.
For Cleaver, some people are more equal than others:
“The point I was making is that black people hold the president in such high esteem, that they would not dare march on the White House even though unemployment is at 15 percent and higher and if there was a white president we would do that because we’ve had white presidents since George Washington.”
Translation: he would call for a march on the White House if the economy still sucked for blacks and if there was a white President in the White House, even if Cleaver held that white President in high esteem. So for Cleaver, it really isn't about the esteem he holds for President Food Stamp, it's that Obama is black and a Democrat and Cleaver won't call for a march for those reasons. The rest of Ballasy's piece contains more of the same ugliness from Cleaver the racist.
The indecent Democrats in the CBC are the black equivalent of the KKK, and should be treated as such. Even as they whine in faux outrage over equality, the hate-mongers that make up all of the CBC's Democrats continue to demand that their black constituents worship Obama, to do so only because of the color of Obama's skin. Naturally, the CBC Democrats require the obedience from their black constituents, an obedience that can only be fulfilled by re-electing the CBC Democrats. Yes, my fellow Americans, racism is alive and well in this country. It's on display on a daily basis from these preachers of hate that make up the Democrats in the CBC.
Along with the CBC, President Food Stamp willfully associated with other like-minded racists to pursue his run to the White House. Obama talks about being the President for all Americans. I don't think so. Worse, he and his fellow black Democrat politicians have suckered their black constituents into perpetuating not only the misery of black Americans, but to keep them economically worse off than any other American, worse off than before President Food Stamp took office. In this, the KKK would be extremely proud.
