Racist if I do, Racist if I don’t!
By Aaron Reale
The left has some nerve; for the last two years we’ve been told that if we are against Obama, it must be for racial reasons (See Morgan Freeman calling the Tea Party racist earlier this month). But yesterday the attacks against us got even weirder when liberal pundit and not-so-funny woman Janeane Garofalo had the gall to say to another liberal not-so-funny man Keith Olbermann:
“Herman Cain is probably well liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican Party, Conservative movement and tea party movement, one in the same…People like Karl Rove liked to keep the racism very covert. And so Herman Cain provides this great opportunity so you can say 'Look, this is not a racist, anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti-gay movement. Look we have a black man.'"
So let me get this straight; if I’m against Barack Obama, I’m a racist, and yet if I support Herman Cain…I’m still a racist. Well that makes sense! Let’s make something clear Ms. Garofalo, we do not support Herman Cain because we want to cover up our supposed Racism, we support him because of who he is! We have no problem with his or any other race. The other thing to note is that we don’t have to cover up our “anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti-gay movement” because once again, they don’t exist. Let’s look at Republicans true views and lets also look at some history shall we?
(Something the left LOVES to avoid)
In regards to the Republican Party being “anti-female”, let us remind Ms. Garofalo that two of the most prominent republicans are Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann, but then again, they are probably just a cover right? In that case let’s look at the issue of women’s suffrage and the passage of the 19th amendment.
Fordham University notes that in the Senate, the roll call was as follows:
FOR ADOPTION - 36.
Republicans - 36.
Capper, Cummins, Curtis, Edge, Elkins, Fall, Fernald, France, Frelinghuysen, Gronna, Hale, Harding, Johnson, (Cal.,) Jones, (Wash.,) Kellogg, Kenyon, Kayes, La Follette, Lenroot, McCormick, McCumber, McNaty, Nelson, New, Newberry, Norris, Page, Phipps, Poindexter, Sherman, Smoot, Spencer, Sterling, Sutherland, Warren, Watson.
Democrats - 20.
Ashurst, Chamberlain, Culberson, Harris, Henderson, Jones, (N. M.,) Kenrick, Kirby, McKellar, Myers, Nugent, Phelan, Pittman, Ransdell, Shepard, Smith, (Ariz.,) Stanley, Thomas, Walsh, (Mass.,) Walsh, (Mon.)
AGAINST ADOPTION - 25.
Republicans - 8.
Borah, Brandegee, Dillingham, Knox, Lodge, McLean, Moses, Wadsworth.
Democrats - 17.
Bankhead, Beckham, Dial, Fletcher, Gay, Harrison, Hitchcock, Overman, Reed, Simmons, Smith, (Md.,) Smith, (S. C.,) Swanson, Trammell, Underwood, Williams, Wolcott.
So in the Senate alone, more Republicans voted for the amendment than Democrats did, and more Democrats voted against it than Republicans did. In the House of Representatives, the amendment passed 304-89 vote, and I’d venture a guess that it was Republicans that made up the majority of that passing vote. The whole notion that Republicans are anti-female is historically inaccurate.
Next let’s look at Republicans being “anti-immigrant.” Are we? No, the Republican Party is very pro-immigrant, what we are against is illegal immigration, which in case you didn’t know Janeane is against the law. Republicans are the ones who are trying to protect our borders from illegal immigration and are constantly pushing the legal immigration method, in order to keep it fair for those who follow the rules, what’s more pro-immigrant than that?
The next charge was Republicans being “anti-gay”, this is again not true. There is no relevant branch of the Republican Party, Conservative Movement, or Tea Party that will discriminate against someone for being gay. What Republicans are against is not the person being homosexual, but rather giving special rights to people because they are homosexual. Republicans believe that homosexual marriage is a violation of the sanctity of marriage but will not go as far as to go out of their way to mistreat someone who is gay.
Finally there is the charge of supporting Herman Cain to cover up “our racism.” It is astonishing that Liberals can claim that the Republican Party is racist given that the history of the Republican Party is pro black, while it is the Democrat Party who has constantly supported racist measures. Let’s start with the Civil War; Abraham Lincoln the President at the time was a Republican and among other reasons fought the war to help free the slaves.
In regards to the Civil rights act of 1964, a majority of Republicans voted to pass the bill. Percentage wise, 80% Republicans in the House and 80% in the Senate voted to pass the Civil Rights Act, while only 61% of Democrats in the House and 63% in the Senate voted to pass the bill (One of the Democrats who voted against the bill was Al Gore’s father). Not to mention the fact that Martin Luther King Jr. was himself, a Republican.
So who is it that is really racist? History tells us that it is not the Republicans who hold the African-American race in contempt; it is they who are the ones who have done the most to put an end to racism in America. It is the Democrats on the other hand who have continued to try and keep blacks down, something they continue to do to this day (welfare) and in the process of doing so, are not only denying people their rights, but are also ruining any chance this country has left to recover. That is why we support Herman Cain, Ms. Garofalo, because we actually have no problem with having a black President, we just want one who actually knows what he is doing and will do what is best for this country.
Herman Cain was right when he said “African Americans have been brainwashed…” and its people like Janeane Garofalo who are the brainwashers. So shame on you Janeane for spreading your lies; but it doesn’t really matter, because no matter what you say, you can’t keep a good Cain down!
