I found the quote below here.
Here’s a quote from Mary Frances Berry:
“Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November. Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness.”
— Mary Frances Berry, Professor of American Social Thought and History, U. Penn.
“Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness.”
Yep, it is. If, that is, you’re a Democrat. It’s been a tried-and-true Democrat strategy for decades, and we Conservatives and Republicans have fallen for it for decades. Doesn’t speak well of us. Time to cut it out.
We’ve documented in these pages how the home of real prejudice and racism is the Democrat Party — where the leadership absolutely considers black people to be inferior and able to be bought off for food stamps.
The above-linked web page contains some other interesting quotes from other leftists who thought no one would be paying attention, or who figured that their leftism immunized them from criticism.
They were right. We are paying attention, but these vile people are immune — because of their leftism.
