Condoleezza Rice has been nominated as the first black female secretary of state less than a week after the resignation of Colin Powell, and already the left has their slings and arrows out, determined to destroy this woman. This, if you're paying attention, shows you their true colors. Now you can see the intolerance of the left. Their message is simple: minorities are good as long as they know their place. And the place for minorities is in the Democratic Party and on the liberal side of the political fence. Stray from the designated minority path and you get what Condi Rice is getting now.
If Dr. Rice had been nominated by a Democrat, we would be right in the middle of a weeks-long media swoon about how she is the smartest woman in the world, about how whatever Democrat that nominated her was a brave, principled leader, and on and on.
But because George Bush nominated her, she is being portrayed as a lackey Bush loyalist that can't think for herself. Yet this is only the beginning.
The media is attacking Condi with political cartoons that are beyond racist (see below). You can only imagine what would happen if a conservative cartoonist created a cartoon using basic black stereotypes to make fun of a black Democratic nominee? The liberal lynch mobs would be out front with pitch forks before the second edition came out. The cartoonists are demeaning a black conservative now ... so not a peep.
Will race pimps like Jesse Jackson defend Condoleezza Rice?
How about Al "The Liar" Sharpton?
Will the useless NAACP come to her defense?
Will other so-called "civil rights" groups and race warlords hail the importance of her appointment as the first black female secretary of state?
What about the National Organization for Women? Will NOW be celebrating this appointment?
You know the answer to all of these questions ... and that answer is not only "no," but "hell no." Of course not, and the reason is simple: these groups were never about protecting anyone's rights except those of liberal Democrats.
Never forget...there are two sets of rules not only for the media, but for the civil rights hacks out there. One set for the Democrats and one for Republicans.
