Powell: GOP has ´a dark
vein of intolerance´

Politico, by Ginger Gibson

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/13/2013 12:01:44 PM

While continuing to identify as a Republican, former Secretary of State Colin Powell on Sunday criticized the GOP for a series of racist attacks against President Barack Obama. "There´s also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party," Powell said on NBC´s "Meet the Press." "What do I mean by that? What I mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities." Powell, who endorsed Obama, pointed to a number of statements that were directed at Obama as evidence that there is still racism within the party.

Powell has no credibility and no honor. After what he did to Scooter Libby, he´s persona non grata with me.

But he´s a hero to the leftists for his dishonest commentary on race. What a pig. Someone needs to ask him how his first fancy house was financed in Virginia. You´ll find an Arab royalty if you dig just beneath the surface. He´s only ever been loyal to Colin Powell, the rest of America is "the little people".

There are few more intolerant than leftist ideologues. Why would a self-described Republican not know that? Didn´t realize how racist Colin Powell is and how bound by identity politics he must be.

Many Blacks are showing just how racist they are. Coming out of the closet, so to speak.
I think Powell is bitter because he KNOWS he got where he is by affirmative action and not merit.

Powell has not creditbility.
When asked back in 2008 what qualifications or credentials could he list for supporting obama, he basically had NOTHING. Ended up saying something about obama´s election being "historic". In other words, he was going to vote for obama because he was black - NOTHING ELSE ! (except for the unspoken fact that he and obama just happen to share the same SKIN color.)

That means that Powell is the RACIST - voting and supporting obama solely on the basis of their shared race. And like most / all racists he is PROJECTING his racist views on all republicans. Powell has gone from hero to ZERO in my book.

The man is dead wrong in his statements. There are many of us who absolutely abhor what has happened over the last four years and we could care less what color skin the people have that
were responsible. In fact, many informed and intelligent blacks feel the same way.

The race war has been simmering beneath the surface for many years. It´s about to boil over.

Powell, and people like him, either want it or are such morons that they don´t realize they are causing it.

If you could look behind the scenes, you´d probably find out that the mainstream media is writing his lines for him, just as they do vritually every democrat in the country. The MSM runs the show, not the democrat party as so many seem to think.

Communism creeps in slowly until all of a sudden it´s too late to stop it. And for those of you who think the New York Times is about to go belly up, think again. They will simply order the democrats to bail them out... and they will. Some Pubbies will go along, too.

A view on darkness from the quintessential lightweight. Has Powell ever said anything that doesn´t serve him first? If he had any value, you´d think a book would have been ghost written for him by now. Bottom line here, ambitious but weak minded.

How about Obama´s intolerance to wealth? He makes it out to be evil. Yet, I know some very wealthy people who are very gracious. So Colin Powell, did you forget about that intolerance of Obama´s toward the wealthy? That was what his whole campaign achieved.

Why would Powell even stay in such a party,
if it´s so racist ?
FTA- Regarding Gov Sununu , after the first debate describing Obama as lazy , Powell
said this was code for " shiftless ".
No..it´s an accurate description of Obama aka Laz- E.
Validated by his official daily schedule of two , sometimes three hr work days.
The golf, parties and long vacations.
His own admission to Damian Lewis, the star of Homeland, that he goes to the Oval Office
and " pretends "
to work , but, he watches tv , instead.
The 2008 interview to 60 Minutes just after the election, where Michelle said
she had to " make " Obama do chores.
That he had to be " forced " to wash dishes
and make " his " bed.
The October 2012 Vanity Fair article
that described all the hours he spends playing basketball each week that are never publicized.
But, most importantly, Obama himself has often
admitted that he´s lazy.
In " Dreams From My Father " on pages 94 and 95 he recounted a fight with his mother over his admitted laziness.
Obama told his mother he planned
on being lazy his whole life.
December 2011 interview with Barbara Walters :
"You know, it´s interesting. There is a deep down - underneath all the work I do
- I think there´s a laziness in me...it´s
probably from, you know, growing up in Hawaii..."
Obama is the Commander in Chief in wartime and during terrible economic times and his lack
of any type of work ethic makes his laziness pathological.

In both Obama and Powell I see racism, it´s just that they were both chosen by white people as well as blacks and so now they bit the hands of those who nurtured them, by creating class warfare between minorities and white people, if the GOP seems to have less of a plantation mentality for minorities it´s because they still believe in "freedom" in spite of their desperate gyrations to avoid being called racists by the stealthy race baiting, class dividing, gun grabbing socialist set in the Democrat party and some blacks who believe themselves the distributors of others hard earned money and goods. They do however believe in distribution to the other elites who support their filthy oppressive form of racist government.

Racist attacks against Obama? Really? Prove that assertion.

The problem is that the left has defined any disagreement with black liberation idealology and socialism as racist. They merely make the charge that republicans are racists, and the press reports it as fact.

As McCain, Hagel, Powell, and even John ("I served in Vietnam") Kerry prove: an honorable military record is helpful, but not determinate, in qualifying for civilian office. The former requires bravery, discipline, and duty. The latter adds requirements for vision, perspective, and intuition.

It´s obviously difficult for black people to rise above their blackness. It´s ingrained in them in most homes and communities where they are raised. And it´s promoted by most of the black community leaders, who continually tell their people that they are victims.

Powell is still guilt ridden over his UN presentation and he´s been trying to redeem himself with the left ever since. His endorsement of Obama in ´08 was a huge step.

I´m pretty sure Powell got most of his promotions under republican presidents so if they were racists,why would they do that?

The liberals simply don´t have the intellect to separate race from behavior.I´d be more than happy to see Col. West president.

#1 and #2 are right on the money. Colin Powell has always struck me as an egomaniac who needs ´everyone´ (well, almost) to love, admire, adore and worship him. He never ran for public office because he would have had to make tough decisions and take strong stands on issues. He much prefers strutting around and being seen at all the right parties and functions. He´s been on my "----" list as long as I can remember. Except for his military service, he´s a big zero in my book.

Let´s be honest. Powell has been masquerading as white for forty some years. Now his true colors are coming out.
Ready?
He´s BLACK - always has been, always will be. You can´t separate blacks from blacks. They may be very violent and all that but they stick together.

´Dark vein of intolerance´ isn´t a phrase one just thinks up on the spot. MTP producers huddled with Powell about the subject of this week´s show: "The Republican Party Sucks". Colin obliged, wrote himself up some nasty race baiting sound bites, and then proceeded to spew them.

President George W. Bush gave Powell an opportunity to make a name for himself but he is proving to be another Judas - how much silver did Obama promise him? Judas betrayed with a kiss, Powell lied and did not stand up to who he really was and what he stood for. Now, we see he is another Obama!

Sad day for America when a man needs to destroy someone else to make himself look good!

America deserves better than what Powell had t offer and this proves it!

Wrong -mr powell - we have no respect for the President or for you, no matter what color you and he are. There are plenty of minority folks we DO have respect for, and they are not just blacks, starting with the governor of La. Bobby Jindal, an excellent official and person, and
a multitude of others of all ethnicities and races. You, Sir, are unfortunately a racist. and as a former military member, that is truly sad.

What Powell and the vast majority of Blacks don´t "get" is that the GOP is a party of ideas, not a party of buddies. I have listened to many Black leaders and pundits on various shows and most of them are frankly in la la land, nowhere near reality. So, NO, I can´t accept their ideas and I don´t want to be their buddy. When you don´t go along with the progressive herd, you are labeled ignorant.

Baloney.

I don´t need Powell´s approval to have different ideas than him and his progressive crowd and it doesn´t make me ignorant. I understand what they are talking about, I simply KNOW it is wrong. Not FEEL it is wrong, KNOW it is wrong.

On the other hand, the GOP does need to understand that if it wants to make any progress it needs to learn to craft a message that convinces enough of those that function through feelings and cliques to side with the GOP for elections. Right now, that battle is being lost.

We don´t like his white half either, MR. Powell.

What did the Dem party do to conservative black Congressman Allen West? "Defeated" him via voter fraud.

Sharyl Attkisson Claims CBS Moved

Appearing on Thursday´s O´Reilly Factor, former CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson claimed that CBS "had barely begun to scratch the surface" of the "Fast and Furious" scandal before the network moved on from the story. She noted that the network showed similar reluctance for its coverage of Benghazi and the ObamaCare rollout. Before her resignation last month, Attkisson covered Obama administration controversies like "Fast and Furious" and Benghazi and her reporting helped the CBS Evening News win the Edward R. Murrow award in 2012. Yet she told O´Reilly that higher-ups at the network moved on from the

Laurene Powell Jobs, the widow of Apple founder Steve Jobs, was among the high-profile donors who gave to a super PAC dedicated to supporting former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s potential run for president in 2016. An official familiar with the fundraising numbers of Ready for Hillary told Business Insider that Jobs was among 10 donors who gave $25,000 — the highest amount recorded — to the super PAC during the first quarter of 2014. Also in that group were Sharon Elghanayan Corzine, the wife of former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine; Tim Gill, the founder of Quark and

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen’s comments make it clear that the “IRS’s actions are designed to control the battle space of the election this coming fall to keep conservative groups on the sidelines,” said Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) at an Americans For Tax Reform Tax Day press conference on Thursday at the U.S. Capitol. “This is an attack – that’s just the way we have to put it,” Roberts said. “It’s an attack on the First Amendment rights of our citizens just because they dare to differ from this administration and the president.

The context for this little chestnut of racial nastiness was a heated floor debate in the Illinois legislature over a proposed education reform bill. The fireworks started when Democratic Representative Linda Chapa LaVia, who is Hispanic, delivered a speech criticizing charter schools. Ms. Chapa LaVia was no doubt casting aspersions on behalf of teachers unions — who’ve contributed heavily to her campaigns, are bankrupting the state, and don’t much care for competition. In defense of the status quo — which traps far too many children, especially children of color, in failing public schools — Chapa LaVia appealed to her fellow

Attorney General Eric Holder has infuriated U.S. Assistant Attorneys by not waiting for the U.S. Sentencing Commission to recommend reductions of sentencing guidelines for drug offenders and pushing them to prosecute based on his new guidelines. “We do not join with others who regard our federal justice system as ‘broken’ or in need of major reconstruction,” the National Association of U.S. Assistant Attorneys said in a letter to Mr. Holder in January. “Instead we consider the current federal mandatory minimum sentence framework well constructed and worth preserving.” In August, Mr. Holder unveiled his “Smart on Crime” initiative, seeking to “reserve

AUSTIN, Texas — Reflecting on the unique power of the office he holds, President Barack Obama on Thursday honored Lyndon B.

President Barack Obama´s aunt Zeituni Onyango, who was denied asylum in the United States but stayed illegally for years, died Tuesday at age 61. Onyango, whose immigration status was reported by The Associated Press days before Obama´s election in 2008, had been treated in recent months for cancer and respiratory problems, Cleveland attorney Margaret Wong said. She died in a Boston rehabilitation center, said Wong, who represented her in her immigration case. Onyango, a half-sister of Obama´s late father, moved from Kenya to the U.S. in 2000 and was denied asylum by an immigration judge in 2004. She remained in the

Also ... ´View´ from the Left? Hillary, Obama and the media: Reducing politics to sex and race -We’ve apparently settled on what the 2016 presidential campaign is going to be about. Sex. Not sex as in Hillary Clinton’s gender, but sex as in sex scandals. And by the way, the grand narrative of Barack Obama’s presidency is about race, and that won’t change until he leaves office. These are among the pronouncements in a pair of New York Magazine essays: Frank Rich writing about Hillary, and Jonathan Chait weighing in on Barack. Now nobody with a pulse could deny that

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
