Racist Who?

So I hear about the racist party making racist ad homenim attacks against their political opponent this morning. The twist is that it's the Democrats making racist remarks about a conservative, Republican, minority.

I thought the Democrats were the party of equality and understanding and all that other mushy stuff? Well I guess they still are, but they have a perfectly good reason for attacking him I'm sure.
Black Democratic leaders in Maryland say that racially tinged attacks against Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele in his bid for the U.S. Senate are fair because he is a conservative Republican.

Well that's good enough for me!

Seriously now, what is wrong with these people?! Would you expect a Republican to get away with this? I don't think so! Not only would there be outrage all over the left calling for the resignation of the offending party members, but it would be plastered all over the news as more evidence for the racist image of the Republicans.

You NEVER see Republicans, in an official capacity, making racist ad homenim attacks against democrats. I didn't know being racist was okay if you disagreed with their politics! What else are you allowed to do? Oh yeah! Illegally obtain credit reports of your target--it's okay, he's an uncle tom, it isn't like he's a real person.

Operatives for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) also obtained a copy of his credit report -- the only Republican candidate so targeted.
But black Democrats say there is nothing wrong with "pointing out the obvious."

What gets me mad about this isn't so much that they attacked a conservative black man (though it does make me mad), but that they can be so overtly racist and get away with it after professing to be for minorities. Any Democrat that isn't ashamed of the actions of these people should be ashamed of themselves. Also, any Democrat that has ever criticized Republicans of being racist and doesn't condemn this, is a hypocrite.

Michelle Malkin touches on a few of her own experiences with liberals as a conservative minority. Apparently, it's fairly common to make racist attacks against a minority as long as they're conservative.

Ed Morrisey at Captains Quarters is a bit more articulate than I am on this... mainly because I'm angry and can't find the words. Plus, he's "more experienced" than me in life which probably has something to do with it.

That shows the leadership of the Democrats as they truly are -- a hate-based faith system that takes any means necessary to win elections. Cheating, violence, smears, and now racism are all acceptable as long as Republicans are the targets. If the Republicans happen to be members of minority communities, so much the better.

After all, it's not discrimination when you hate someone more because of the color of their skin or their ethnic background, is it?

Not if you're a leftist Democrat, it isn't.

Which is why I'm not a leftist Democrat. Any group that is okay with smearing someone based on their race is not a group I prefer to be a part of. Not only that, but I'm quite inclined to oppose them.
