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.

    There was a story in the news recently that profiled a public school in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The school was comprised of blacks, whites, latinos, and asians. The Principal, a black man, formed a group called the “African-American Lunch Bunch”. This all-black group went on field trips leaving all the non-black students behind. This is of course a very Progressive idea – the thinking being that the black students because of their supposed disadvantages need better educational opportunities than non-black students. Can you imagine if a white Principle formed the “European-American Lunch Bunch” where they took trips to learn about their heritage and their history? Despite the obvious racism and segregation at play here, one of the most interesting parts of the story is that on one occasion there was only one bus available, so the Principal decided to only allow black boys on the bus, leaving the black girls back at the school with the those advantaged whites, latinos, and asians. I guess the black girls had more advantages than the black girls….. So, not only was this Progressive Principal a racist, but he was also a misogynist. Where is the outrage from the left and the feminists? Not a word from them – Nothing but the sound of crickets……

  2. Chris,

    The stories are unending. More to the point, the Progressives have lost any moral clarity they may have had when they were just naive. Now they are just plain racists.


  3. Their (liberals) double standards are disgusting. Cynthia Tucker, much like Charles Rangle are an embaressment to themselves and their race. I am a 38 year old white male and PROUDLy list people like Dr. Thomas Sowell, Justice Thomas, Dr. Williams that fills in for Rush so many I can’t remember. My degree is in Finance and Business Mgmt. You always hire the best individual I don’t care if they are purple. As long as they can do the job to the best of their ability, color NEVER enters into the equation.

  4. […] Cynthia Tucker taking off on Michael because he is black. […]
