Racially-Coded Attack

Breitbart´s Big Journalism, by John Nolte

Posted By:Dreadnought, 2/16/2013 10:50:44 PM

Apparently, the "Washington Post" and "New York Times" don´t like the idea of a non-white U.S. Senator acting all uppity. It´s fine for the lily-white Elizabeth Warren to immediately come out guns blazing, but over the past couple of days both news outlets ripped into in Texas Senator Ted Cruz for not knowing his place. As we all know, the base of the Democratic Party is made up of union workers, who see Hispanics as a threat to their jobs, and rich, white, coastal liberals whose only contact with the Latino community is on grass-mowing day. And so

Time to turn it around.
Everybody criticizing Cruz is a racist.
Please say it, and keep repeating it over and over.
We need to create impression right or wrong that Democrats hate Latinos.
Why we do not exploit 300 people killrd in operation fast and furiuous as a racial black Latino issue?
Why" "genius" Carl Rowe did not run an add like this I will never understand.
If you want to win you have to play politics which is a nasty game. Nice guys always loose.

"lose", not "loose"...

Democrats, "progeessives" (regressives), leftists, etc. have ALWAYS been the real racists. They have only pretended to care about people of color while projecting their racist views on others. They have promoted a few key minorities and "community leaders" to prestigious positions in order to keep their people in-line. But their goal is to keep the people generally in poverty and as controllable dependents. They (at least the ones in positions of power) actually hate people of color. The establishment, country club Republicans who don´t like Cruz just don´t want anyone shaking up the status quo where they can gain power and wealth through their office. They don´t want to lose a good thing even if it is hurting our country and the rest of us.

To Democrats, it really doesn´t matter if you´re Hispanic, black, white, Asian, male, female, gay or transgendered. If you´re not a socialist, Democrats will hate you - no matter what your race, gender, religion or ethnicity is.

The racist accusation should be made every time one of the Republican minorities or conservative minorities are criticized or disagreed with in any way.

The traditional stance for a freshman senator is to hold back a bit.

...unlike your freshman president who went in there, guns blazing, with his socialist agenda? Wanna ask him to "hold back a bit" or not?

This is, pure and simply, more garbage from the old outdated pages of the "Let´s Get Senator Jesse Helms" playbook from back in the day.

The "Nattering Nabobs Of Negativism" on The Dark Side at The New York Times and Washington Post need to spend some money and hire new and more imaginative offensive coordinators!

Never back down Sen. Cruz. The nation is desperately looking for leaders. Honorable, principled men and women will save this country from the ruling class. So many people go to Washington and get sucked in by the establishment. Don´t let that happen. You understand the problems we are facing and have real solutions. Don´t get bogged down by the career politicians in your own party. They are the problem. Forge a new path for yourself and fellow conservatives and a grateful nation will support you. God bless you.

Here´s the difference between Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, both ´hispanic´ senators:

Marco Rubio is Cuban. From Florida (and where is Obama this weekend? Gathering Rubio intel perhaps?) And, he is cute and cuddly, and has a self-deprecating sense of humor. Plus, he threw in with a few Establishment RINO senators on immigration.

Ted Cruz is Latino. (Learn the difference.) He´s from Texas. Lots of independent minds there in Texas. And they have a huge border problem, as do all southwestern and neighboring states. He´s handsome, not in a cuddly way, but in a rugged, manly-man way. He´s soft-spoken normally, but intense and - dare I say it? - PRINCPLED. He knows his positions because they come to him from within.

Now Rubio is principled too, but in my personal humble opinion, Cruz would be a better front man on the immigration issue.... he has lived it. Rubio´s family´s immigration was a completely different situation.

I understand, but have no verified proof, that Latinos don´t really see Cubans as ´like them´. Compare it to dark-skinned blacks vs. light-skinned blacks, perhaps, but there´s a certain resentment. Latinos in the southwest just want an open border, and there are extremists who want Atzlan back.

Watch for these 2, and other librags, to pit Cruz against Rubio directly. (They think they ´have´ Rubio and that he´s controllable.)

Ted represents Texas but I read somewhere that he was born in Canada. This may simply be an expansion of the ongoing anti-Canadian pogrom which has been building for years. He may very well have gone to Catholic Schools too. You cannot trust anyone who knows how to diagram a sentence.

Sounds like the Times and Post want to go along with the idea that freshmen Senators and Representatives are just supposed to go along to get along once they arrive in DC. That they have to be around for a few years to "learn how we do things here". Well, there might just be a few that DON´T go along with that idea. They believe that they were elected to represent their districts and states and are bound to do so. These are they type of people we, as a nation, need a lot more of. And get rid of the dead wood at the same time.

#3 Totally agree.

The Republicans need to make lemonade and turn the racist card back on the Dems and go after the media bums right now.

First of all. Cruz is not non-white. The majority of Cubans are direct descendants from Spain. But, let them call Cruz non-white all day long as they dig themselves deeper into their own racist hole.
This is discrimination in it´s highest form. Until we stand up to the media and go after every one of their false accusations, they will continue this game. We need to start right now with a campaign to counter these attacks. It will take a concerted effort between now and 2014 and 2016 to get our message across.

Speaking of the hideous actions of the damnocrats, one of the readings at mass this morning was about Satan tempting Jesus with power and glory over all the kingdoms of the earth. My first thought on reading the passage was the 0bama was also tempted this way and it took him less than a nano second to grab on to the devil´s agenda. Then the priest spoke about the passage in his homily and specifically referred to politicians and asked why it´s so hard to get good people to run for public office. He didn´t mention any names but I know him and I´m sure that he was referring to the likes of zippy, Pelousy, Dingey Harry and the MSM.

BTW, why aren´t we reading that he was editor of the Harvard law review , an accomplished debater/speaker. That´s all we heard about in ´08. Bambie´s background isn´t on the charts compared to his.

Ted...read the Hate Speech language, then kick their rears!


"Hate speech is a communication that carries no meaning other than the expression of hatred for some group, especially in circumstances in which the communication is likely to provoke violence. It is an incitement to hatred primarily against a group of persons defined in terms of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and the like. Hate speech can be any form of expression regarded as offensive to racial, ethnic and religious groups and other discrete minorities or to women."

Make no mistake about it, this is Hate Speech and is definitely Racial!

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

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'

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.
