What the hell is it with the Congressional Black Caucus? They just can’t seem to get away from the victim mentality and the penchant for creating enemies out of large groups of people. First, there was Maxine Waters jabbering incoherently about how anyone who happens to disagree with the CBC Marxist doctrine is a racist who needs to be investigated, and sending the Tea Party “straight to hell.”
Now there’s this daft bitch, who looks like a transvestite pimp from Chelsea, and talks like Jesse Jackson in drag.
“When you look at African American males, 40% of them are unemployed, those under 30 years of age. I understand exactly the entire nation must be involved in this recovery but the black community is experiencing a great recession. That’s what we’re experiencing,” Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) told MSNBC.
“And all of the growth in the past 30 years, we see it slipping away. From home ownership, the middle class; it’s slipping away from our hands. And it has a lot to do with many issues. Racism, shipping jobs overseas, access — no access to technology. You know, the digital divide is there and many of the new jobs that’s what it requires. So, we have a problem.”
No, the problem is not a lack of higher education or disproportionate crime rates. I’m sure those are caused by racism too, because college diplomas aren’t being handed to African Americans, or because the taxpayers aren’t forced to pay for their college educations, or because cops are RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACIST and arrest black criminals more than they do whites, or….
It’s obviously the business world’s fault for not wanting to hire an employee with a criminal record.
It’s obviously law enforcement’s fault for… um… enforcing the law.
It’s obviously the justice system’s fault for finding a criminal guilty and sending said criminal to prison.
It’s obviously the taxpayers’ fault for not allowing the government to throw more money at failing school systems, despite the fact that pathetic FAILS such as the DC school system that has the second highest per capita spending in the country!
And it’s the Tea Party’s fault, because they’re obviously RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACist for pointing all that out and demanding some damn accountability in government spending!
Do I have that right, Maxine? Frederica? Jesse?
Look, it’s not just these dimwits’ fault. They’re pandering to their idiot constituencies who will cast a vote for them as long as they’re told that the nation owes them, that it’s all Whitey McCracker’s fault that their lots in life are lousy and their failures can only be attributed to racism.
That kind of rhetoric is tough to beat. Never mind that it’s racist in and of itself. It tells African Americans that they can’t make it without government handouts. It tells them they’re entitled to a job, an education and money by virtue of their skin color. It tells them they’re disadvantaged and unable to exist without policies that address those “disadvantages.” And mostly, it tells them that no matter what happens, it’s not their fault. Personal responsibility be damned! Their skin color entitles them to abdicate said responsibility and claim victim status!
If I were a black person, I’d be insulted. These politicians and race baiters quite obviously think their constituents are stupid.
