Skip to comments.Colin Powell: ‘Elements’ in GOP ‘Demonize People Who Don’t Look Like the Way They’d Like’
Posted on 02/07/2014 12:27:07 PM PST by TexasCajun
Appearing on MSNBC, former Secretary of State Colin Powell savaged the Republican Party of which he says he is still a member for catering to elements that are overtly hostile to people of other races or nationalities. Powell told MSNBCs Andrea Mitchell that there are groups within the GOP who demonize people who dont look like the way theyd like them to look. He added that, for this reason, he believes the GOP needs him more than the Democratic Party needs him.
He said that even senior-level Republicans continue to make statements about women and minorities that make the party look less tolerant than it should be. Powell specifically cited voting laws which he said are designed to restrict minority access to the polls.

...just change parties and be done with it mister!
You’re projecting again, Colon.
Just go away, colin. Your 15 minutes of affirmative action are up.
I’d hate to look like a colon.
the problem with Powell isn’t his appearance (indeed, he is a reasonably handsome man, YTMD of course). The problem with Powell is his left-wing (and racist) politics.
the GOP needs a Colin cleanse.
Wonder what he's paid to mouth this crapola?
Please get specific Colin. Who are these mysterious "elements" you speak of? If you can't identify them and back up your statements you are just another lying race baiter. Put up or shut up.
Race card much, General? Of course you do; that’s how you got where you did.
Can you say the same General Powell?
Repeating the Big Lie.
Elements in the democrat party demonize people who don’t think like them.
The GOP already has plenty of security leaks, we don’t need anymore.
Leftists are stupid. They know it is about ideology.
Leftists believe that all minorities should think like them or they are uncle toms
Do you want to look like a colon?
ps:I meant to type “left-wing and/or racist politics”
I wouldn’t care if Powell wore a purple dress, if he fixed up his politics I’d be happy to vote for him. However, so long as Powell supports Obama over and over and over again,
he is not going to get my support.
This country is going straight down to Hell and after 5 years of this trashing of Amerika from the WH.... Powell or anybody else has no excuse anymore to support more of this destruction of our nation and our peoples’ lives
What kind of parent would name thier kid Colon? That’s like naming your kid a**hole.
As is typical with all race-baiters, Colin didn’t name anyone specifically, did he? Just a blanket statement.
Idiots who say things like a raped woman’s body shuts down from pregnancy don’t make R’s look good. But they are a tiny percentage.
Colin Powell has long ago lost any claim of relevance. Anyone stupid enough to vote for a communist because he happens to share physical characteristics with ones own tribe is not a person worthy of attention.
Go away Colin, you’ve given us enough stupid advice.
