Cynthia Tucker; Another Progressive Racist
Posted by Steve Markowitz on July 5, 2010
It has become apparent that the greatest threat from racism, anti-Semitism and anti-feminism in recent decades comes from the Progressive Left. Almost on a daily basis some Progressive comes out with a public pronouncement of their bigoted beliefs.
Just a few weeks ago it was Progressive White House reporter Helen Thomas who suggested that Jews need to get out of Israel and go back to Poland and Germany where their parents were gassed. This week Progressive reporter from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Cynthia Tucker, came out of the closet. In an interview with ABC’s Jake Tapper during “This Week” the discussion was GOP Chairman Michael Steele. Here are two of Tucker’s comments:
- Michael Steele “is a self-aggrandizing, gaffe-prone incompetent who would have been fired a long time ago were he not black.”
- “The irony is that he never would have been voted in as Chairman of the Republican Party were he not black“.
Typical of racists, Ms. Tucker does not focus Michael Steele and whether or not he should leave his position. That would be legitimate debate that Progressives try to avoid in discussions. No, Ms. Tucker focuses on the color of Steele’s skin. Just imagine the outcry if someone suggested the same of President Obama when he makes errors, of which there have been many.
Noel Sheppard of www.NewsBusters.org makes an especially cogent point of Tucker’s racist rant:
“Yet there’s a potentially even more striking hypocrisy here: didn’t Tucker with her accusation admit that some incompetent black people are hired exclusively because of the color of their skin, and they don’t get fired for exactly the same reason? As such, wasn’t Tucker accidentally making a case AGAINST affirmative action?”
The answer Noel is “of course”. However, the anger and hate for some on the Left are so powerful that it blinds them from logic.
The strongest hate from the Left is reserved for women and people of color that disagree with the Progressive views. This further proof of the cancer growing within the Progressive movement.
