Alan Colmes: Don´t Hold
Susan Rice Accountable
Because She´s Black

Townhall, by Katie Pavlich

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/21/2012 11:39:11 AM

I´ve been hoping that the race card would be played out by now but sadly, it isn´t. Yesterday on America Live with Megyn Kelly, liberal Alan Colmes said Republicans shouldn´t be criticizing Susan Rice because she´s a black woman. Colmes argued that the optics of Republicans "attacking minorities" don´t look so good. "I just don´t think it is wise for Republicans on the heels of the election to pick as their first target an African-American woman, a very accomplished one just by a purely political, strategic standpoint." “The first thing they do after an election is to

Comments:
I switch channels or put the TV on mute the second this obnoxious, odious jerk comes on Fox. The only amusing thing I can come up with about Colmes is that it´s always interesting to see what hair color he will have when he appears.

If the public does not quit worrying about perhaps being called a racist, when in fact they are legitimately identifying a LIAR, no matter what color or gender they are, we will be doomed.

What a dipwad.
But let´s accept Colmes´ silly premise that, because Rice is black, she cannot be criticized.
That would certainly mean that Repubs should absolutely fight to the death to prevent her appointment to SOS. Because once appointed, she cannot be criticized or held accountable for her incompetence--again, because she is black.
Typical illogical liberal.

Since we donated the TVs I often don´t see an image of someone who makes the news, unless I go to the Daily Mail and they´ve reported that news. In short, I haven´t seen a photo of Rice and I didn´t know she was black.

Just the fact, reported by innumerable news outlets, that she appeared on five or six talk shows, saying in all of them that it was the video whodunit was enough to make me criticize her, white, beige, black, whatever.

I am so weary of race being the answer to every criticism made about anyone even remotely connected with left-wingers and their causes.

Leftists are pathologically obsessed with race, gender, ethnic background, sexual orientation, minorities, etc. They insist upon seeing individuals, not as individuals, but as specimens, examples, members, representatives etc. of some "constituency." This is against the American ethos of judging people as individuals, i.e. by their actions, abilities, values, accomplishments etc. Leftism is actually a form of prejudice and bigotry that judges people in advance according to superficial and accidental qualities such as race, sex etc. over which they have no control. It is the antithesis of common sense and American individualism.

The Leftist condition must be held to be pathological because, although the inherent contradictions and problems of their identity politics fetish is or ought to be obvious to a child, it is far from obvious to committed Leftists, who are unable to see that they are committing the very faults of judgment and transgressions of respect that they inveigh against in others. Leftists are the racists, the sexists, the whatevers. Leftists are the ones the are against. Normal Americans merely desire to evaluate and regard individuals AS individuals and on the basis of their actual behavior and values.

That´s why 95% of blacks voted for 0bama.

I have yet to see a [tree] stump dumber than Alan Colmes.

#17: That makes at least two of us, though I prefer a number of muscular swings of an oil-soaked shaft of good Pennsylvania ash with the "Louisville Slugger" oval logo thereon.

#18: Indeed, and agreed. The Left is [and must be] a world of "identities" and "feelings," because Leftist positions/principles cannot be defended logically, nor can their success in application be found empirically. It is a mythical world of perpetual early-adolescence, where bias and emotion are seen [by the Leftist] as "insight," "comprehension," even as "elevated understanding" which we benighted rationalists will never "get."

But about that last point, they are for once correct.

Colmes is worthless anyway. You can´t get rid of racism by exempting some races from criticism. Or equalize the sexes by exempting women.

It is media, academics, and politicians who keep giving passes to one group or another on one issue or many. And sometimes even punishing selectively.

Then they wonder why the general population does not see that as equal justice.

I´m a black conservative republican and this offends me to no end. Liberals in general and black liberals in paritcular have bought racial politics to a new high. Tailmunchers like Alan(bagface)Colmes like most idiots on the left feel that we can´t hold Minute Rice, PhD´oh accountable because she is a few shades darker and has different plumbing than say a John Bolton. That is utter hogwash. We hold this buffoon accountable because of her actions before during and after Benghazi-gate. People like Colmes, Matthews, and the numbskulls in the CBC are worth the air it takes for them to breathe.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote.

Earlier this week, the Times reported Sebelius, who recently tendered her resignation from the high-profile Cabinet job, was "considering entreaties from Democrats" to run against GOP Sen.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent.

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
