GOP needs to find a leader, stop the infighting & take offensive

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

Like picking ripe fruit from low hanging branches, the Democrats and progressive types offer up current examples of how they really think. The NAACP has pronounced Tim Scott a "dummy for the Tea Party". His high crime or misdemeanor? Not being a member of the Democratic plantation. Condi Rice was called an "Aunt Jemim. Who can forget former RNC chair Michael Steele having oreo cookies rolled down the aisle toward him during a speech. Juan Williams was called a "porch monkey" way back when, before NPR found him to be too politically incorrect.

Liberal Internet outlets spewed their hate-filled venom recently at actress Tamera Mowry. Her alleged sin is being a black woman married to a white man. Not just any white man, but Adam Housley who works for that "nastiest of all networks", Fox News. Ain't 21st century political correctness wonderful in the land of hope and change? Betrothed to someone who has connections to conservatives, capitalism and traditional values gives her the title of "white man's whore".

Who can forget the heartwarming video of MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry and cohorts having themselves a jolly ole chuckle while viewing the photo of Mitt Romney holding his black adopted grandson on his knee. Go back in time to when USA columnist Barbara Reynolds referencing Justice Thomas as having a little "Archie Bunker mentality" for marrying a white woman.

Michelle Malkin reminds us, "poisonous attempts to shame are an old, endless schoolyard game played by bullies who never grow up and can't stand other people's happiness or success". And unfortunately, far too many liberal progressives seem perpetually unhappy. Go read Derrick Wilburn's Oct. 30, 2013 article in American Thinker entitled, "Liberalism = Unhappyism". It will give you enlightening insights into their dismal mindset. Oh and lest I forget, Michelle might just be the standard bearer for this sort of "lack of diversity" bullying. "Oriental Auntie-Tom" and "Manilla Whore" are just a few of the lovely epithets thrown her way over the years. Left wing neanderthals thought they could intimidate Michelle by shouting at her, "me love you long time" or "holla for a dolla".

Seems intolerance is never having to say you're sorry if you are of the so-called, superior, political persuasion. Okay, Melissa did offer a seemingly heartfelt apology, after others made her aware of her diversity deficient indiscretion. Go ask Stacy Dash how many belated apologies she has received for the many dozens of racial slurs hurled her way for not being a certified member of the Democrat plantation.

Perhaps we can understand, if not forgive, the Democrats for their hypocritical stance on racial diversity. Remember, Democrat Nathan Bedford Forrest founded the Ku Klux Klan. Democrat Woodrow Wilson segregated office buildings and jobs 50 years after integration by mostly Republican administrations. It was the Democrat party that instituted Jim Crow laws and separate but equal. Republican Dwight Eisenhower sent the 101st Airborne into Arkansas to counter the Democrat Party's enforcement of segregation. It was Democrat Bull Connor who turned the hoses on the marchers in Birmingham and Democrat George Wallace who decried, "segregation forever". So perhaps that explains why they are returning to their elitist and bullying roots. Perhaps that is why they promote diversity as though they own the copyright, when their actions are to insist that others must think the way they do. Sounds more like a cult to me. Come in, but leave your diverse ideas, thoughts and opinions at the door.

It was Republicans who made up the majority who passed the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Which, by the way, was over the filibuster of such Democrat paragons as William Fullbright, Al Gore Sr. and of course, Grand Keagle Byrd. Now, revisionist history says that the Dixiecrats joined the Republican Party. Truth is that most remained Democrats. So, just how is it that the Republicans have allowed history to be revised to the point that most believe it was the Republicans who were and are, so enamored with segregation and slavery? Yes I know, the Democrats have the media, academia and Hollywood on their side. I don't care. Republicans need to unite the way Democrats do. They need to find some gumption, find a leader, stop the infighting and take the offensive against the modern day plantation owners. Otherwise, the GOP may dissolve along with our magnificent Republic and the freedoms that encompass it.
