10 Bigoted Remarks Made by the ‘Tolerant’ Left InObama’s ‘Post-Racial’ America

During the 2008 Presidential campaign, we heard relentlessly about howBarack Obama would usher in the era of  Post-Racial America. Upon his Presidential nomination and subsequent election, it reached a fever pitch, with every speech he made being lauded as the secondcoming of Martin Luther King, Jr. In reality, not so much. In fact, the reality was almost theantithesis of Martin Luther King, Jr’s dream – instead of being about character, everythingbecame about the color of one’s skin.Not a fan of “universal” health care? Racist! Approve of Arizona’s law attempting to stop the tideof illegal immigration? Racist! Disagree with President Obama on economic policy? Racist.Also, George Bush. The demagoguing of American citizens reached heretofore unknown epiclevels.
 
It’s easy to understand why, once you realize it is a case of  the Left not only protesting too much, but
 projecting 
too much. The Left’s own bigotry came out in full and disgusting display. If you want to understand what the Left believes and what they are doing at any given time, just look toward what they accuse
others
of doing. With all their crying and moaning about what they‘ inherited’ from President Bush, there is one thing I do wish they had “inherited” — A desire toget rid of the “soft bigotry of lowered expectations.” Instead, those on the Left foment it.It’s nearly impossible to narrow the list down, but here are ten remarks made by the “tolerant”left, which exemplify their  own underlying bigotry. 
1) Harry Reid Shows His True, and Racist, Colors
I don’t know if Harry Reid’s ivory tower is padded, but it should be. In January of this year, theking demagoguer had his own hypocritical mask ripped off upon the release of the book
GameChange.
An excerpt from the book, detailing a private conversation with Harry Reid , exposes what he truly believes, away from the cover of his public facade:On page 37, a remark, said “privately” by Sen. Harry Reid, about Barack Obama’s racial appeal.Though Reid would later say that he was neutral in the presidential race, the truth, the authorswrite, was that his “encouragement of Obama was unequivocal. He was wowed by Obama’soratorical gifts and believed that the country was ready to embrace a black presidentialcandidate, especially one such as Obama — a “light-skinned” African American “with no Negrodialect, unless he wanted to have one,” as he said privately. Reid was convinced, in fact, thatObama’s race would help him more than hurt him in a bid for the Democratic nomination.“Oh, look! He sure does talk purty! For a black guy and all.” How vile. It also means that your race card is no longer accepted, Harry Reid. The above remarks are truly racist, as opposed tothe race card-y Racist ™. Bigoted and offensive, but not surprising. The only thing that reallysurprises me is that they didn’t garner Harry Reid the vice president spot. I mean, Joe Bidenmust be rather pleased with himself for going one further and calling President Obama “cleanand articulate.”This wasn’t the only exposure of Harry Reid’s bigotry this year. Earlier this month, hecontemptuously mocked those of Hispanicheritage who would dare to refuse to walk in lock-step with Democrats:Watch Reid sneer: “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican.”Think independently? That’s unheard of! Harry Reid’s private comments show the truth that onlythe willfully ignorant refuse to understand. It is the Left who sees color everywhere, and ineverything. They are grossly diminishing true acts of real racism with their willy-nilly tossingabout of the Racist card and they are diminishing and demeaning the entire Civil Rightsmovement by incessantly hurling the race card to further political agendas, all the whilebetraying themselves with these constant, blatant “misspeaks.”
2. Bill Maher: Obama’s Not Acting Like a “Real Black President”
Last year “Real Time” host Bill Maher told Joe Scarborough ,“I would never say that all Republicans are racist — that’s ridiculous and wrong — but if you’re a racist in America todayyou’re probably a Republican.”Mm hmm. Unless, of course, you’re a repellent, race-obsessed “progressive” hack named Bill  Maher .The professional political jester demolished his own inane canard in May 2010 when hetook to national television to lament that Barack Obama isn’t a “real black president.”
 
I thought when we elected a black president, we were going to get a black president. You know,this [BP oil spill] is where I want a real black president. I want him in a meeting with the BPCEOs, you know, where he lifts up his shirt where you can see the gun in his pants. That’s —(in black man voice) we’ve got a ‘motherfu**ing problem here?’ Shoot somebody in the foot.In Maher’s repulsive estimation, a “real” black person is a foul-mouthed, gun-toting hoodlum. Or as Greg Gutfeld observed , “He wants a novelty black – once seen in 1970’s cop shows, selling reefer and hookers.” Quite the connoisseur of African-American authenticity, don’t you think?It doesn’t matter that the president is a man of means and education who knows no more aboutstreet thuggery than Maher himself. Obama’s skin color eclipses everything else and Maher isutterly unable to process the president’s actions without placing them in the comfortable contextof a racial stereotype.Maher is yet another so-called liberal who believes his “progressive” street cred entitles him tospew blatantly racist bile without compunction. And his history as a comedian-turned-commentator affords him an extra layer of insulation from accusations of bigotry. Wink, wink.Nudge, nudge. He was totally
 joking 
. It couldn’t possibly be that like many a dutiful leftist, hisimmersion in identity politics leads him to view the president as a racial failure instead of anindividual one.
3. Barbara Boxer: ‘Those People” Should All Think Alike.
Barbara Boxer, Ma’am, notonly sanctions infanticide, but she sanctions racism. In a new version of the vile “y’all look alike’ bigotry, Barbara Boxer displays the disgusting belief that allpeople in the Left’s little boxed up identity groupsmust all think the same way. They can’tpossibly think on their own, you see.Barbara Boxer is shocked and full of disbelief over the very idea that Harry Alford, the chair of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, actually disagrees with the NAACP and the 100 Black Men of Atlanta. How can this be? Oh, no, this doesn’t suit – race politics is the Left’sbread and butter!This is the most dangerous and harmful kind of racism, as it is insidious and stealth. They praiseMartin Luther King, Jr, yet they never, ever heed his words. They always judge first by the color of someones skin and not the content of their character. All they see is a black man
daring 
tobreak out of the box they made for him.
4. Jeremiah Wright Blames “Them Jews” For Keeping Him From Obama
President Obama once introduced the Reverend Jeremiah Wright as “a friend … and a great leader … not just in Chicago but across the country.” But to many of us, just the name of Obama’s longtime pastor evokes caustic images of  anti-American, racially divisive Marxist  rhetoricbooming from the pulpit of Trinity United Church of Christ.So is it Americans’ distaste for Wright’s radical black liberation theology that keeps the presidentfrom having his trusted spiritual advisor over to the White House for dijon-dressed arugula? No,silly, it’s “them Jews” of course! In a June 2009 interview , Wright explained why he was no longer in touch with Obama:“Them Jews ain’t going to let him talk to me,” Wright said. “I told my baby daughter that he’ll talkto me in five years when he’s a lame duck, or in eight years when he’s out of office. …Wright went on to offer the Hamas perspective on the Obama administration’s Middle Eastpolicy:
