Chris Matthews to Michael Steele: how come Republican Blacks are integrated? Why don’t you segregate them like the Democrat Party? by American Elephant

Seriously! Being a half-wit, he, of course, doesn’t realize that’s what he’s saying, but it’s precisely what he says nonetheless. Is the man’s mouth attached to his brain? Is his brain attached to anything? He goes to a Democrat convention, sees blacks and whites segregated into racial groups and sees the realization of MLK’s dream; he goes to the Republican convention and sees blacks and whites mixed together, interacting , integrated and he sees racism.

I will grant that Matthews is quick — hyperactive really — he’s the fastest interrupter this side of the Atlantic and his mouth moves a mile a minute. The problem is that it isn’t connected to anything — at least not to anything that works. Transcript:

I go to the Republican convention; I go to the Democrat; and as a white guy, one of the things I notice about the difference — one thing I notice about black people at different conventions — you go to the Democrat convention — black folk are hanging together having a good time; they’re all smiling and enjoying themselves — they feel very much at home. You go to Republican, you get the feeling you are all told individually “now don’t bunch up, don’t get together, don’t get together, don’t crowd or you’ll scare these people. Is that true in the Republican Party? Is that still true in your party? Did you fear that if you get together with some other African Americans that white guys might get scared of you?

…isn’t there still a difference between the two parties on race?

Yes! Chris, there is! Republicans are still the party of integration; Democrats are still the party of segregation. The Republican party has always been the party that treats black people as equals, and the Democrat party has always been the party, and remains the party to this day, that treats blacks (and other minorities) as inferiors, first as slaves, then as untouchables, now as helpless victims who need special rules, a thumb on the scales, and the helping-hand of  enlightened, benevolent, white “progressives”to get ahead. A philosophy, I might add, that has been devastating to the black community. Yes, Chris, Republicans are still the party that judges people by the content of their character while Democrats forever judge people by the color of their skin.

And that Steele couldn’t smack that condescending slimy spitball of a smear out of the park is about as concise an explanation as any why he is no longer Chairman of the GOP.

That’s the basis for affirmative action.
And that is the group (whatever) is inferior
and needs help , exactly the opposite of
Dr.Rev Martin Luther King’s vision and I think
if he were alive today he would be objecting
to some of the rhetoric of the Democrat party.

Chris Matthews show is like watching the View
or the equivalent of a Root canal.

The Democrat’s need division so they can rule.

Divide and Conquer.

Chris Matthews and his colleagues seldom forget the color of each others skin. Remember the one hour he forgot the President was black? See the comment here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/01/27/chris-matthews-i-forgot-o_n_439701.html

Sadly, an accurate assessment of Mr. Steele. A good man, but clearly never Chairman material.
