Colin Powell: Latent Democrat?
Washington Examiner, by Gregory Kane

Original Article

Posted By:Vastrightwingconspirator, 1/23/2013 11:58:28 PM

Recently the former secretary of state -- rumored to be a Republican -- has been quite vocal in criticizing his own political party. In no way am I saying Republicans are above criticism and do everything right. But there´s something about Colin Powell´s recent attacks that sound so, so, well, so Democratic National Committee-ish. Take, for instance, this gem: "There is a dark vein of intolerance in this party. They still sort of look down on the minority." Sounds ominous, no? And it sounds like the refrain we heard from Democrats throughout the 2012 presidential campaign

Powell is the epitome of all that constitutes a RINO! He is a Democratic operative in a Republican´s clothing. I no longer have any respect for this man or his race-baiting opinions!

We need fewer Colin Powells and more Stanley McChyrstals, more real men. Powell bites the hand that feeds him, namely the Republicans. There is nothing sorrier than a retired "minority" general whining about affirmative action, except a "minority" president whining about the same.

IMO Colin´s problem is trust. He trashed his boss, Bush, and the GOP. Both had treated him very well. People noticed.

I can´t believe top Democrats will be dumb enough to ever give him any important position or task.

The Republican´s sure won´t. So he can only court the Democrats.

He is on the outside looking in. I think he will be kept there.

Perhaps Powell is coming out of the closet in regards to his own racism. Their rage and anger at being born black slips out eventually.

Whether latent D or latent R is irrelevant. What matters is that he´s no conservative; being little more than a race hustler who owes his career to affirmative action.

Judging by the race baiting crud this guy has been spewing lately all I can figure is he is mentally ill. He seems to have some kind of vendetta against the Republican party. His talk is crazy talk.

Next time someone from the right is interviewing him (if he ever again sits down to such an interview) they should ask him who the last Republican was that he voted for. Watch him squirm.

Another pretend Republican who had to show his true colors and support brother Obama if he was to have any chance to keep being invited to liberal dinner parties and not be referred to in some black circles as an "Uncle Tom".

He was godfathered on his way up by George H. W. Bush who was fooled by a lot of liberals.

Colin Powell endured decades of the unbelievable left-wing psychological abuse that Democrats heap upon any and all black people who identify as Republicans.

He was constantly called an "Uncle Tom," "House Ni**r," "Sell-out," and told he wasn´t really black.

Barack Obama´s election allowed Powell the opportunity to escape this abuse. Now he parrots whatever party line bilge the Democrats want him to sling in order to cement himself on the side of the Left as well as continuously ingratiate himself with those who heaped such hatred and abuse on him.

This isn´t bravery. It´s craven cowardice.

But, hey, that´s why Democrats employ psychological abuse. That´s how they keep Black America in line.

How I long for the day when Black America is actually free, both physically and mentally, and able to choose for themselves on the basis of ideas and values, rather than being chained to the Democrat Party´s never-ending Plantation Politics.

Made me laugh, #3. Hard to do these days.
Colin always puts me in mind of two songs from the distant past: "The Back-Stabber" and "I´m in with the In Crowd." The DC in crowd is definitely Dem and the opportunistic Powell feels quite comfortable there, especially since O is "The Leader of the Pack." I can imagine him bristling with resentment under the patronage of patrician Pappy Bush and would not doubt that he has been a double agent for the Dems for a long time.

If a true Republican, Powell would have defended the party against the alleged racist statements and noted the minorities in the party, especially those that spoke at the Convention and are poised to lead the party. Instead, he caried Obama´s water on the racism charges. Very disappointed to see him join the partisans and play the race card.

Powell retains the R label because if he took the D label all his bilge would just be liberal Democrat echoes. And the press only pays attention to Powell because he claims to be a Republican. So why change your label if it results in your becoming irrelevant.

Colin Powell lost any credibility he had when his assistant, Richard Armitage, leaked the identity of Valerie Plame. Powell agreed to keep silent while he sat by and watched Patrick Fitzgerald went after numerous Bush Administration personnel. Powell is a turncoat and a disgrace to our nation that he ever served as a general.

Powell knows better than any non-black person that 99% black voters will always vote for a black Democrat, just like he did. You cannot blame black voters for basing their vote on the color of a candidate´s skin rather than for the content of the candidate´s character.

Powell needs to drop his claim of intolerance by the Republicans. Powell is intolerant of many Republicans. He may be pro-gay, pro-abortion, pro-gun control and pro-Obama. Some of us have different views.

Obama ‘ShamWow’ speech

Sarah Palin is keeping up the infomercial peddler charge against President Barack Obama, criticizing his “ShamWow” speech in Boston and accusing him of lying to the American people. (Snip) “For starters we anticipated a presidential apology for lying to Americans repeatedly when he promised things like, ‘If you like your current health care plan, you can keep it.’ Make no mistake, he knew he was lying when he said that,” Palin wrote. “Was remorse and sympathy shown for Americans who now can’t afford health insurance thanks to Obamacare? Nope. … Obama didn’t lie to you when he said, ‘if you

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she would be "disappointed" in the American electorate if Hillary Clinton becomes a serious candidate for president in 2016. The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee argued Clinton would not be right for the role as commander in chief after four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, died last year in a terrorist attack against a U.S. consulate in Benghazi. (Snip) She said "anyone who would just throw away 200 years of military ethos and leave our men behind to be murdered" should "never be considered as a commander in chief."

Americans who are fed up with Obamacare won a victory yesterday. The House voted to defund Obamacare while still funding the federal government to avoid a “devastating” shutdown. (I shall not digress, but it’s beyond distressing to hear liberals try to convince Americans that any government slowdown is comparable to “terrorism.”) (Snip) I want no pity. I need no empathy. But use me as a barometer. Over the years, the leftwing media has falsely and irrationally accused me of everything from faking a pregnancy to abetting murder. They lie. Deal with it.

Now we can say it without a doubt: Seattle has the loudest fans in the world. During the Seahawks-49ers game Sunday, the 12th Man broke the Guinness World Record for loudest crowd roar, the record attempt’s organizer said. We have yet to officially confirm the report from former Seahawks player Joe Tafoya, but he tweeted from the field that the record had been broken. Seahawks fans hit 131.9 decibels, according to The Seattle Times, after the Seahawks and 49ers returned to the field from a weather delay. The previous record was 131.76 decibels, set during a 2011 soccer match at

It was an overcast, albeit relatively mild August day by Washington D.C. standards, fifty years ago today, as I joined the thousands walking along Constitution Avenue toward the Lincoln Memorial. Many of those in the crowd who had traveled vast distances by busses and cars from all over the nation, but in particular the deep South, had a look of apprehension bordering on fear, not knowing what to expect from the police and those vehemently opposed to unfettered civil rights. Despite the trepidation and regardless of skin color, nationality or faith all were determined to compel the nation to listen

Sarah Palin joined Eric Bolling on Fox News this morning to take a mini-victory lap over some Democrats suddenly embracing the idea she put forth years ago over health care “death panels.” Palin felt somewhat vindicated, but didn’t want to “condone them… for trying to jump off the Obama train wreck.” She told Bolling that rationing was in the health care law from the beginning, and the Democrats who didn’t notice it until now did not want to look like “buffoons.” (Snip) Palin proudly declared her allegiance to Team Rand, hitting Christie for his “schtick” of “set-up situations”

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning.

And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
