Rep. Jim Clyburn Hammers Justice
Scalia As ‘White And Proud’

Mediaite, by Garrett Quinn

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/2/2013 8:12:46 PM

On Friday the Huffington Post interviewed Rep. Jim Clyburn on the latest Supreme Court’s hearing on the Voting Rights Act and he had some harsh words for conservative Justice Antonin Scalia saying that his criticism of the landmark civil rights legislation is rooted in the fact that he is “white and proud.” During last week’s hearings Scalia said that the 1965 legislation created a “racial entitlement” that is very difficult to get out through “the normal political process.” Clyburn compared these remarks to what he experienced growing up in South Carolina, saying that he developed an immunity

Clyburn and most of the old marchers in the Civil Rights establishment who were definitely on the side of the angels in 1955-65 have turned into racists just as virulent as those they opposed back then. So too have editorial pages in many big cities. What a shame. There won´t be true racial equality until black racists have been as ostracized as thoroughly--and held to the same moral standards--as Klansmen of old. If you scratch the surface, there isn´t much difference between them.

Whatever its origin, racism stinks, and I´m sick of it. (Are you listening, Mr. President? I thought not.)

Jim, you are a blooming idiot. Justice Scalia is an Italian Catholic whose family emigrated through Ellis Island. There was a time that Italians were not considered to be "white" or white enough, and Catholics were discriminated against.

Jim, members of your race, Barack Hussein Obama and his cabal, have been given an opportunity to govern, to lead our fair land, and they are trying to destroy America. Affirmative action has failed, and minorities stupidly bite the hands of taxpayers who feed them.

I am half Italian and damned proud to be both "white" and Catholic.

You are an embarassment to our country and to your state. Stop whining and race baiting and do something to reduce the self-inflicted crime, murder, poverty and out of wedlock births among your own people.

Where does Clyburn get license to make such charges? He does not know what is in Justice Scalia´s heart and mind. There has never been evidence of racism from Justice Scalia - EVER. However, malicious charges like this can be made by fools like this.

I second everyone else´s absolute outrage. Top conservatives, even elected Republicans, need to step behind a mike and express THEIR outrage. Justice Scalia is one of our champions. This racism needs to be addressed by our side. Why do Republicans stay silent when the left savages Justices Thomas and now Scalia.

Joe Califano, another Italian (!) fellow posters, said years ago the need for affirmative action has ended.

If you´re business is race baiting and claiming victim status, however, business is still good, as Jesse, Jim, et. al. would testify, if they had an honest bone in their corrupt bodies...

The wholesale cratering of "academic performance," all of which so oddly "happen" track with a certain population cohort? Jim?

#18, not all that uncommon among whites either or any other race for that matter. Stuff like this is why I don´t tell more people about this usually wonderful forum. Sweeping statements reflect badly on all of us. I prefer to leave that kind of thinking to leftists.

Anyway, it´s a shame that many civil rights "heroes" were bought off by the Democrat Party & took kickbacks & influence from their new masters in exchange for selling out their people & making sure they´re kept slaves to the Dems. Clyburn, Jackson & several others sold their souls for personal gain. MLK was no saint, but he had 1000 times more integrity than these guys (who I believe were in on his assassination with the Dems). I know he is rolling over in his grave. Sadly, King´s family (except his neice, Alveda) also sold out his memory for quick money too.

#28 actually there is an average gap of 15 points between whites and blacks. the typical American black still scores below 75 percent of American whites on most standardized tests. On some tests the typical American black scores below more than 85 percent of whites.

Now you might object to that fact but it is true

#32, that seems to have been Hank Johnson, a Democrat from Lithonia, Georgia. I just looked up what he said. ´´This is a[n] island that at its widest level is what ... twelve miles from shore to shore? And at its smallest level ... uh, smallest location ... it´s seven miles between one shore and the other? . . . about seven miles wide at the least widest place...´´ Somehow, I´d guess Justice Scalia would be able to speak the English language better than that. Many Americans are proud of him for his ability to serve our nation so very well, and that has nothing to do with the color of his skin.

#33, you forget that most blacks live in inner city urban areas or very poor rural areas controlled by Democrats who have intentionally destroyed their educational system and through leftist policies have broken up their nuclear families. There is no way to honestly evaluate their intelligence (or even potential) using those tests when the odds have been deliberately stacked against them. They are taught NOT to think for themselves and they are not given any critical thinking skills in school. This has been going on for generations.

The real story here is a concerted attack on Judge Scalia. Earlier article on Sotomeyer and Kagen followed by attack by Maddow. It will get worse they are sweating the conservative judges throwing out the Voting Rights act that they have used to rig elections in the democrats favor, worst example stopping voter ID laws in southern states last years election

To the list of minorities, you can add the descendants of the original settlors (white English protestants) who have not been in the majority since we lost so many in the Divil War. I believe there are more German descendants than English.

Remember that new member of Congress sometime ago who was elected from a majority black district? He cared enough for his constituents to try to join the CBC so he could better serve them but the CBC turned him down flat. He was not black. I think he was Asian. Clyburn and his ilk do not care one whit for the average black in this country, only about holding on to their own power base.

I too am proud to be white Mr. Clyburn.

Clyburn likely knows that representatives like him can only continue to be elected when the district from which they come has been gerrymandered to insure a candidate of a particular race is elected.

With the assistance of the Department of Justice and bigots like Thomas Perez, many congressional districts will continue to send representatives to Congress based solely on their race, not on their qualifications. Clyburn has racial privilege, and no doubt he likes that very much. For Clyburn, running in a district not determined by racial makeup would cause him to risk losing an election. In Clyburn´s eyes, no doubt, that would just not be fair. For he knows he may not be the best qualified, other than he marched with Dr. King.

This clown´s bias should surprise no one.

Except for its monied leaderhip and weak-minded intellectals, the Left is drawn from and appeals to the worst types of people, like this nasty affirmative action ignoramous Clyburn and Maxine Waters, among many more just like them. Why else would America-haters Soros, Ayres and the others have seen the paydirt potential of the well-spoken if essentialy unqualified Obama, and rushed him up the political ladder to the presidency?

For the most part, whites left racism behind in the 50s and 60s, and raised their kids accordingly. But as I posted above, socialists like Obama and his people have made every effort to bring it back. In effect, making the right pay for the sins of earlier generations of Americans while advancing their leftist political views.

Clyburn personifies the following quote from Thomas Sowell:

PS: Sowell is black and, unlike Clyburn, has not allowed his race to trump his ability to think.

#34: Sorry, but Democrat-controlled bad schools didn´t create the acknowledged gap between various population cohorts.

Yet again, I refer one and all to the Lynn and Vanhanen data. A ready connection to it is at La Griffe du Lion´s "The Smart Fraction and the Wealth of Nations." heck the IQ numbers by countries around the world. Kids from those countries weren´t flown to US toilet cities and giving garbage "educational opportunities."

There´s just far, far too much data pointing to correlation. Far too much.

I´m a proud black man who DIDN´T vote for the idiot we have in the White House. That being said Clyburned is nothing more than an old tired typical black racist democrat. He is in the same mold as leftists morons like Waters, Jackson-Lee, and the rest of those dimwits in the CBC. What this low watt dummy doesn´t get is that he insulted one of the greatest minds on the Supreme Court today. This is what we get folks when the freeloading lo-fos reelect racist meatheads to stink up Congress with their stench. When I tell my fellow blacks this I´m called an Uncle Tom or worse. Most blacks in this country need to wake the heck up and realize that Odumbo, Clyburn, and the CBC do not have our best interests at heart.

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

It’s Good Friday. Time for the leftwing president to do something bad. Barack Obama just punted on the Keystone Pipeline, again, and some Democrats say they are angry at him. The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections. Republicans, as well as red-state Democrats who want the proposed Canada-to-Texas pipeline approved, slammed the administration for the delay. Democrats even threatened to find ways to

A church in Grapevine, Texas, is getting into the Easter spirit this week by creating a giant chalk-portrait of Jesus Christ in their parking lot. Fellowship Church is led by Pastor Ed Young, who started the evangelical Christian church in 1990 with about 150 people in Irving. They now have 10 church campuses worldwide. His father is Dr. Ed Young, the head of Second Baptist here in Houston. According to church spokesman Andy Boyd, the 17,000-square-foot drawing of the face of Jesus took 700 volunteers over 9,100 man-hours to create. They also used 6,700 individual pieces of chalk and 125

The Obama administration is extending the agency review period for the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline, potentially delaying the decision until after the November elections -- sparing President Obama a tough political decision in the process. A senior State Department official said agencies have stopped crafting comments because a Nebraska Supreme Court decision could change the pipeline route and, ultimately, the environmental, socioeconomic and cultural factors that went into the environmental review. The official did not directly answer a question whether an altered pipeline route would require a new environmental review.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

One day after making an audio appearance on RT to ask Vladimir Putin about Russian surveillance operations, National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden authored a Guardian column to clarify his intentions behind the question and push back on critics who suggest he was attempting to help whitewash the Russian president’s abuses. “Does Russia intercept, analyse or store millions of individuals’ communications?” Snowden asked Putin on Thursday, garnering a denial from Putin that included the statement: “We don’t have mass system of such interception. And according to our law it cannot exist.” Critics alleged that Snowden appeared in a scripted manner,

Police say a high school vice principal who had been rescued from a sinking South Korean ferry has been found hanging from a tree. The news of the death came Friday as rescuers scrambled to find hundreds of people still missing from the ferry and feared dead. The passengers included 325 second-year students from Danwon High School heading to a southern island on a four-day trip. The school vice principal found hanging Friday was identified as Kang Min-kyu, the lead guide for the school trip. No suicide note was found near the site, but Yonhap news agency reported that Kang

When a video of high school student Jeff Bliss calling out his teacher went viral, a lot of people started talking about the state of our education system and ways to improve it. However, almost a year since the video was posted, not much has changed. In fact, many would say that with the extension of Common Core curriculum across most of the country, it has actually gotten worse. Take this attempted explanation of Common Core’s approach to math: (Letter & Charts) How is this helping?

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

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'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

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. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
