Clyburn, MSNBC: Handbook of Racial Code Words includes ‘incompetent’


That’s right. Now “incompetence” is the latest entry in the Handbook of Racial Code Words. You see, 97 House Republicans signed a letter strongly urging President Obama to avoid nominating lying liar who lies, Susan Rice, for Secretary of State.

Opposition to nomination grows… drudge.tw/10gOCyU

Race-baiter extraordinaire Rep. Clyburn (D-S.C.), of course, again heard “dog whistles” that only he can hear.

not again! RT @thehill: Rep. @clyburn: #GOP letter criticizing Susan Rice uses racial ‘code words’ bit.ly/WsZQkG By @jtsthehill

We thought criticizing her was totally sexist? Now it’s also racist?

Congresswomen: Criticizing Susan Rice For Giving Incorrect Information Is Sexist And Racistnation.foxnews.com/congressional-…

Shall we invent a new “ist” for such things? Sacist, perhaps?

Clyburn is following in the footsteps of other great race-baiters.

According to the leader of Congressional Blk Cauc, McCain calling Rice a liar is racist comment, becuz Rice, a liar happens to be Black.

Pointing out that a liar is, in fact, a liar is also raaaaaacist! Twitter libs also frantically, and shamefully, whip out the race card.

Republicans racist views comes out against Susan Rice. They will never learn why they lost the election!!!

@senjohnmccain your persecution of Susan Rice and denial of POTUS mandate is racist and is beneath you. used to respect you but no longer.

#MorningJoe @morningmikaanother RACIST attack by GOP like in Eric Holder on FALSE FAST & FuriousNow Susan Rice attack official RACISM

— Cyn Hussein Obama (@Wary12) November 20, 2012

Sigh. Predictable.

And a usual suspects at MSNBC does the same. Enter, lapdog Richard Wolffe.

Richard Wolffe is a complete idiot. No one can criticize Susan Rice without being racist? That rule never held true for Condi Rice’s critics

MSNBC’s Richard Wolffe& @hardball_chris call John McCain racist for not supporting Susan Rice, Obama shar.es/GQZz3

More from NewsBusters:

Appearing on Hardball, the journalist sneered that it was “outrageous” the way McCain was acting, raging against “this witch hunt going on the right about these people of color, let’s face it, around this president. Eric Holder, Valerie Jarrett, now Susan Rice.”

Such a charge seemed to shock even Chris Matthews. He sputtered, “McCain, who had his own daughter attacked, was accused of having an illegitimate child when, in fact, he adopted a young girl from South Asia. You’re saying that McCain’s being driven by racial prejudice here?” Wolffe confirmed, “There is no other way to look at this…” Of course, McCain opposes Rice’s nomination because of her dissembling on the issue of the terrorist attack in Libya.

Yet, Wolffe hinted, “What is it about Susan Rice? And the answer is there aren’t any good foreign policy explanations for [opposition].”

Dude. When even race-y race baiter who baits, Chris “orgasmic” Matthews, thinks you are nuts …

Sane Twitter users have had it; the boys who cried “dog whistle” is getting really old. They point out the obvious.

Shorter Clyburn. Perfectly fine to accuse Romney of “rape” politi.co/K960Ou But don’t use the word “incompetent” bit.ly/UdYMwO

@amandacarpenter Heck try “Condoleeza Rice” and “Incompetent” (oh that doesn’t pull up the word “racist” ICYWW).

— MomsUnite (@gullsnest) November 20, 2012

Code word!

Let me get this straight. The last two GOP secys of state were Colin Powell and Condollezza Rice, and GOP attacks on Susan Rice are racist?

— John Podhoretz (@jpodhoretz) November 20, 2012

Huh. Speaking of Rice, what would Clyburn and Wolffe have to say about these disgusting racial slurs aimed at Rice?

Of course, they’d say nothing. She’s not the “right kind” of woman or minority.

Calling Susan Rice incompetent is racist per Rep Clyburn. Calling Sarah Palin incompetent OK. Everyone knows blacks can’t be racist. @cnn

And you know what really is racist and sexist? Demanding that someone be treated differently due to gender or the color of her skin. Demanding that she not be held accountable for her own actions, because how could the poor dear?

You know democrats are losing the argument when they bring up the race card: examiner.com/article/democr… via @examinercom

Bingo. Susan Rice has proven her incompetence time and time again. She’s also a liar. That is the issue; all the race-baiting in the world can’t change the facts.
