Congressman Paul Kanjorski, Another Progressive Bigot

Posted by Steve Markowitz on June 26, 2010

One of the false narratives Progressives have created over the years is that those who disagree with them, i.e. conservatives, are mean-spirited and bigoted.  This has been a successful tool in shutting down real debate on issues.  It has also been cover for the bigotry that runs deep within the Progressive movement.

One of the underlying bigoted themes of the Left is that certain minorities are incapable of achievements and actions in society.  They are careful to couch this them in ways that indicate society in general has caused this inequity.  However, it is their goal to keep minorities at the mercy of the nanny-state so that Progressives can grab more power.

Now and then a Progressive slips, letting his or her bigotry to go public.  Such was the case recently with PA Congressman Paul Kanjorski.  In a debate relating to extending unemployment benefits he said:

We’re giving relief to people that I deal with in my office every day now unfortunately.  But because of the longevity of this recession, these are people — and they’re not minorities and they’re not defective and they’re not all the things you’d like to insinuate that these programs are about — these are average, good American people.”

Don’t worry Mr. Kanjorski; Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and their activist friends on the Left will not say a word for they care little about real racism.  But, you are a bigot and folks like you are responsible for much of the bigotry in this country.
