Powell: GOP ´Looks
Down on Minorities´

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/14/2013 9:07:52 AM

This morning, former Secretary of State Gen. Colin Powell appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press to discuss the nomination of former Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) to Secretary of Defense. During the discussion, David Gregory asked the liberal Powell, nominally a Republican but a longtime supporter of President Barack Obama, about the Republican Party. “I’m struck when you talk about Republicans as they. I know you insist despite voting for President Obama twice now that you’re still a Republican. But as-- as I go through your record on some social issues and even foreign policy issues,

He is just ridiculous, he needs to grow up and stop with his racism towards whites. Your a liberal not a conservative so if something doesn´t agree with you it is automatically racist. Go away

Thanks for always conveying that positive message of inclusive and optimistic conservatism my man! As if the rest of his beltway liberal buddies see minorities as anyone other than voting blocks to exploit.

No, it looks down on stupid people without regard to ethnicity. Is Powell trying to infer that most stupid people are minorities?

Every promotion Powell ever got came from Republican presidents. The Democrats never did a thing for him. Now he sides with Democrats and stabs the Republicans in the back. What a weasel.

Powell has gone round the bend. This formerly respected general and government official has become another tool of the Jesse Jackson - Al Sharpton - Barack Obama culture of racial scab-picking. He is turning himself into nothing more than a manufactured artifact of another time that had nothing to do with him and his rise to power. It was not the blacks who got him where he is now.

I worked with a black man for 11-years. He and I got along really well. I would call him a friend.

During a discussion about the fate of our country the other day, he came right out and said, "Admit it. You don´t like Obama because of the color of his skin."

He´s my former friend.

Obama was going to heal the wounds of decades of racism in our country. The sun was going to shine once again. The divisive "Bush" cowboy policies were a thing of the past.

I cry for my country.

Some of you don´t seem to understand that the reason the Republican Party is ´perceived´ as being somehow racist is because we are constantly accused of being so by our opponents who are doing that purely as a political ploy.

Some of you won´t be happy until the party accepts certain people and philosophies, not in spite of what they are, but because of what they are. Accept Obama´s desire to push our nation toward Marxism because he´s black. Accept Colin Powell´s back-stabbing because he´s black. Not me - ain´t happening.

I am so sick of hearing .."the Repubs just don´t care about minorities..they need to change the language and etc" If the Lib party line is to repeated over and over then give a few example.. don´t just repeat the talking points..
What has the Repubs done to make the minorities feel unwelcome other than tell them they need to take responsibility for themselves and get off the "Gimme, gimme gimme" train.
Tired old excuse...
As for Powell... he took the easy way out ..His wife shut him down on politics so he blames the racist Repubs. Coward..

I am a conservative and less a Republican anymore. How dare another beltway bandit say that Republicans are against minorites. We need jobs and the riot in Detroit for government cheese, Section 8 housing and thousands showing up for 200 jobs at Target stores are more examples of Powell´s friends failed policies. He needs to promote private sector growth instead of being naive and watching a home in the beltway burbs get 165 offers in the first hour of its listing. Keep enjoying those cocktail parties, while the rest of the country goes down the DC toilet.

I look down on Colin Powell but certainly not because he is Jamaican. More because he has done very well in America and there is no evidence he was ever discriminated against either by the GOP or anyone else but he never ceases making accusations. He is at heart a social liberal but interestingly called himself a conservative through his military career. Who´s really got their thumb on minorities in this country General Powell?

Keep this saying in mind. "Democrats like poor people. Republicans like rich people." This saying is completely true. It is the reason that Democrats are constantly trying to make more poor people and Republicans are trying to make more rich people.

Of course, you have people like Colin Powell who only like people who are already rich and want everybody else to be poor. They call themselves Republican but favor the policies of the Democrats.

Colin Powell is a disgrace. We all know he remained silent while Scotter Libby was prosecuted and convicted for a crime he did NOT commit; no, it was Powell´s deputy Richard Armitage that was the guilty party and Powell knew it from the get-go. I repeat, he remained silent and allowed an innocent man to be convicted and so did Armitage. Disgusting pukes.

No, the GOP looks down on liberals, most of whom happen to be minorities. But any minority who shares a conservative ideology is welcomed into the GOP and Powell knows this.

I think the Republican Party right now is having an identity problem. And I’m still a Republican. I’m a Republican who grew up along with George Bush XLI. I grew up with Ronald Reagan, Cap Weinberger, Frank Carlucci, that Republican Party, the Republican Party of Dick Lugar and John Tower.

General Powell, may I suggest that just as entering a garage doesn´t make you a car, or entering a church doesn´t make you a Christian, growing up with Republicans doesn´t make you one. You missed that boat when you supported Obama.

It isn´t the GOP with the identity problem. We are conservatives who want our country back. Granted, there are some Cradle-Republicans who have lost the conservative breadcrumb trail to sanity but they are rapidly becoming personas non grata, and rightly so. We´ll weed them out, General, not to worry.

It is Powell who has the "identity problem"; he calls himself a Republican but all his actions and words are those of liberal Democrats.

Switch Parties and have done with it, General. Then you can run for President again, which is really what you want, isn´t it? Somebody make you an offer you couldn´t refuse yet?

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.

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. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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.

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

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

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

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one
