Skip to comments.Dumbest Washington Post op-ed ever? (skin color card)
Posted on 11/03/2012 9:16:07 PM PDT by chessplayer
Considering that the Washington Post regularly runs columns by the likes of Eugene Robinson, E.J. Dionne, and Dana Milbank few of which I read Im hesitant to declare any Post op-ed its dumbest ever. Yet this piece by Colbert King, which argues that Mitt Romney may well be the new Andrew Johnson, surely is a strong contender.
Johnson was the racist president who succeeded Abraham Lincoln. Johnson tried to enable the former Confederate states to reenter the union without protection for freedmens rights, and he vetoed key civil rights legislation, including a bill that granted citizenship to freedmen. He also opposed the Fourteenth Amendment. Johnson famously wrote: This is a country for white men, and by God, as long as I am President, it shall be a government for white men.
No more preferential treatment, reparations, White Guilt, or "diversity training".
Succeed on merit and initiative, without taking from others, or leave.....
Saw this coming.
Colbert is a clown, and this is a clown column.
To everyone, here’s the summary from this liberal puke:
You are a racist if you vote Romney.
I saved you all the time to click on the link and give this ass clown a Google analytics point.
And they still bitterly cling to the “Odinga is Lincoln” meme.
sniff,,, I smell panic.
Colbert King was on C-SPAN Q&A recently. He’s a reporter who specializes in covering corruption in the DC government and it was interesting listening to him talking about that. Maybe he should stick to DC politics.
With Eugene Robinson and Colbert King, the issue is “race”, and always has been, always will be. They are professional race-hustling journalists, like Jackson and Sharpton are as civil rights race hustlers.
With Dionne and Milbank, you have two of the Post’s top hatchmen, Karen DeYoung being their female counterpart. However, they are political hatchmen and women. The leave the blatant racism and related smears to the “brothers” Robinson and King, and I’m not talking about Will Robinson, Jackie Robinson, or Smokey Robinson, nor Dr. King Jr, Sky King, or “The King” (Elvis).
Of course Johnson did this stuff; he was a Democrat.
This should be no problem for Colbert as one of his “homies” said “all white people are going to Hell” anyway, who we vote for should be of no concern, considering our eventual outcome!
Oh, you mean Lincoln the Republican and Johnson the democrat? Mob members demanding protection money from store owners have more credibility and good intentions than democrats demanding votes from black people.
Will the Democrats be required to have a Negro candidate for President in 2016? I think there will be a lot of anger among “Holder’s people” if there isn’t...
Andrew Johnson was a perfect comparison and example for Clinton by the Dems when Clinton was impeached. Johnson survived it and so did Clinton. Of course they were both fully rooted in the Dem controlled racist South at the time. They deserve each other.
I don’t get King’s new found animosity toward Jackson. Maybe he should be reminded of the history of the Dem party’s connection with slavery, the horrors inflicted on Freedmen after the Reconstruction and the hundred years following the Civil War. Mr. Fulbright was such a Southern Dem racist that influenced Clinton in his early political years.
How quickly they forget (or rewrite) their dirty past.
The federal government has no authority to 'grant' citizenship.
But I wouldn't expect an author of such puerile spew to understand that.
