Bad news: Turns out it’s sexist and racist to criticize Susan Rice for giving bad information to the public

posted at 7:05 pm on November 16, 2012 by Allahpundit

Here’s the most cynical thing you’ll see on the Internet today. I’m tempted to call it stupid, but it’s not: The charge is stupid but it’s leveled in service to a clever goal, framing Rice’s prospective nomination as Secretary of State as a referendum on racism and sexism. McCain is the target for daring to suggest that she’s unqualified and maybe “not … very bright” for buying the White House’s early line on Benghazi, which required her to feed the public ridiculous disinformation about how “substantial” our nearly nonexistent security presence in Benghazi was. If you vote no at her confirmation hearing, it’s not because you want to send a message to O about not lying to Americans. It’s because you hate women and minorities. Republicans, in fact, have already started to tone down the attacks on her, whether because they don’t want to have to deal with this nonsense or because, more likely, they realize that Rice is a footnote to the larger Benghazi inquiry and they don’t want to get bogged down with her.

Two clips for you here, one of today’s press conference by House Democrats and one of Kirsten Powers (via the Daily Caller) demonstrating that not every liberal is willing to give the White House and its diplomatic corps a free pass to lie in the name of tolerance. She makes a good point in her op-ed today too: Why are liberals ignoring how badly Obama has treated Rice here? She had nothing to do with Benghazi, yet he plucked her from her post as ambassador to the UN, briefed her with defective intel, and then sent her out to do damage control as the face of the administration. Like I said yesterday, he could have sent Carney or Robert Gibbs or some other full-time flack but he chose Rice, I assume, because he wanted to leverage the extra gravitas of her position. She’s worked in diplomacy for years, yet now she’s famous chiefly for being the White House’s designated stooge in its biggest counterterrorism failure. Way to do right by a loyal deputy, champ. You’re a real feminist hero. Click the image to watch.

The charge is stupid but it’s leveled in service to a clever goal, framing Rice’s prospective nomination as Secretary of State as a referendum on racism and sexism.

And the MSM will pick up on this exactly as the administration wants. Two old white guys (think the Waldorf and Stadler from The Muppet Show) attacking a young black woman. Because, of course, nobody belongs to the GOP but old white guys, right?

The GOP should absolutely reject this partisan whore as SecState but they need to do it cleverly and not on the merits of the nomination. In short, they need to procedurally defeat the whore and not go in front of the cameras and lecture the public on why she should not be confirmed.

To answer Kirsten’s question why pick Rice the answer comes from the Black women’s caucus here. Like Obama they will hide their mistakes and hideous agenda behind knee-jerk racism on their side. They don’t care how cynical we all see this. they didn’t care how cynical we saw their Presidential campiagn was. They have a zombie set that buys this completely and not only buys it hates Republicans at the end of the day.

We have entered the ALL racism ALL the time political period. God help us all and the United States. I don’t see how I can even look at the half of the country that is doing it. Like dennis Miller says “I feel like I am living among the pod people in invasion of the body snatchers”

But it seems lately that the liberal Left has finally gone off the deep end, not just with this “racist” nonsense, but with everything. They’re not even trying to hide it anymore, or spin it. They’re just showing off their sheer and utter stoopidity with no shame or no regret.

It’s absolutely mind-friggin’-boggling. Even Cynthia McKinney and Sheila Jackson Lee would blush. It’s just…mind-friggin’-boggling.

I wonder why McCain and Graham had their racist and sexist white sheets/thinking caps off when they both voted to confirm Susan Rice as Ambassador to the United Nations?

You’d think if they were racists and sexists that they never would have voted for Susan Rice in the first place.

Your turn, Congresswomen Fudge and Gwendolynne “The National Institute of Health has said that it is a danger to women’s health and safety of their families, that for 30 years, to be exposed to the prospects of pregnancy” Moore.

Resist We Much on November 16, 2012 at 7:41 PM

Republican politicians need to realize that the race card no longer holds any power over them. They get barely any black votes and the majority of the media is nothing more than regime propagandists. So while avoiding real racist opinions, there is nothing to lose in offering very blunt truths to black people. An example would be that the pathetic Obamaphone creature is the face of modern slavery and that the Democrats are the party of slavery just as they were in the past.

Capp on November 16, 2012 at 7:41 PM

If you vote no at her confirmation hearing, it’s not because you want to send a message to O about not lying to Americans. It’s because you hate women and minorities.

This has been their modus operendi for years, especially the last four years. Matthew carries the torch for them. EVERYTHING that gets objected to in one way or another comes down to racism and now its both sexism AND racism. Somehow, some way, someone needs to put a stop to it, it’s ridiculous. No matter how many times you elect an African American president of the United States they insist on calling the GOP a bunch of racists. Enough. The president himself can put a stop to it except that he’s too stupid to do so.

Yea, I said it. The president is stupid.

Poor dear. And married to a rich white man who happens to be the news producer for ABC. So wait for the barrage from that quarter covering up for this lying POS.

Marcia Fudge is my Congressional representative. She’s swinging way above her weight here as she is usually concerned with obesity issues and portion sizes. Yet she’s not a dietician nor nutritionist. This was the Stephanie Tubbs Jones seat and Marcia is making Stephanie seem like a mental giant.

My condolences. I’m fortunate enough that my hometown got redrawn into Bob Gibbs’ safe R district. After having to deal with the insufferable Sutton and Brown for 20+ years, it’s a welcome respite.

But hell. The chest-ripping-out-alien from James Cameron’s film series could be put on the ballot in that district and, if it’s a Democrat, it will carry at least 85% of the vote. Why? Because it’s a Dem.

That too. They have neither the courage nor moral fiber to confront these thugs.

Yes, Susan Rice is a successful and powerful black woman. Don’t Republicans want to see black women succeed?

And, an “apartment in Chicago” is DOUBLE RACIIIIIIIIIIIIIIST.

Resist We Much on November 16, 2012 at 7:44 PM

And “urban” is TRIPLE RACIIIIISSST!

What do I win?

It’s because you hate women and minorities

Well…I’m certainly headed there. Jordon, Waters, Boxer, Feinstein, Clinton and now…Fudge. And every other female moron elected to office to satisfy AA.

Especially including the “indian” just elected in Massassaassachusetts.
