Coulter: Libs think all conservative blacks are incompetent

Ann Coulter's new column points out that since liberals have been pummelled over their mistreatment of Condoleezza Rice, the moonbats have turned their attention toward Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, often the punching bag of liberals in general and black liberals in particular.Thomas has been called Oreo, Sellout, and names far more unmentionable in mixed company, due to his very conservative ideology along with his conservative opinions on the Supreme Court.

Now that his name is being brought up as a serious candidate to replace Chief Justice William Rehnquist, the spitting venom by liberals is coming back out, directed toward Thomas.

US Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), soon to be Senate Minority Leader, was quoted on this past Sunday's edition of NBC's Meet The Press as calling Thomas an "embarrasment" to the Court.

Harry Reid, the Democratic leader in the Senate, had this to say about Justice Clarence Thomas: "I think that he has been an embarrassment to the Supreme Court. I think that his opinions are poorly written."

In the same interview, Reid called Justice Antonin Scalia "one smart guy." He said that although he disagreed with Scalia, his reasoning is "very hard to dispute." Scalia is "one smart guy"; Thomas is the janitor.

Coulter points to comments regarding Thomas and Rice from other prominent liberals.
Joseph Cirincione, with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (so you know they don't have an agenda or anything), said Rice "doesn't bring much experience or knowledge of the world to this position." This was reassuring, inasmuch as that was also liberals' assessment of the current president before he took office and he, to put it mildly, has been doing rather well.

The Kansas City Star editorialized that Rice "has not demonstrated great competence in the last four years," which is to say, Dr. Rice failed to be sufficiently clairvoyant to predict the events of Sept. 11, 2001.

Columnist Bob Herbert sneered of Rice's nomination in the New York Times: "Competence has never been highly regarded by the fantasists of the George W. Bush administration."

Democratic consultant Bob Beckel – who demonstrated his own competence running Walter Mondale's campaign – said of Rice, "I don't think she's up to the job."

As I said in a Project 21 press release last month -- quite accurately, as these accounts point out -- black conservatives are the new "trash class" of society in the minds of liberals. To them, we are to be maligned, ignored and personally attacked. The existing societal double-standard ensures that they won't be called on the carpet for it. But woe be unto any conservative, black or white, who dares to malign a black liberal. We'll be hounded to the ends of the earth by the self-appointed "soul patrol" in order to be made an "appropriate" scapegoat.

'Tis a lonely road we travel, but it's a road that our collective integrity demands that we walk.

The sad thing is black Liberals don't understand that white Liberals think all blacks are incompetent.. and that without their programs we could not achieve. The Democrats are lost.

Do you remember conservatives saying J.C. Watts was incompetent? Remember that article by Robert Novak saying as much?

Remember Tom Delay saying he was doing things under Watts' perview because Watts wasn't up to the task?

DarkStar - No, I don't specifically remember Novak deriding J.C. Watts. If your are trying to say that conservative bigots exists, I'm not disagreeing. However, regardless of which party contains more bigotted members, the current Republican platform, rhetoric, and policy is more egalitarian than the Left's. Personally, I think Republicans are more liberal in the original meaning of the word.

This blog is totally more-ish. Every time I come here to read one article, I wind up running the whole blog. Great stuff.

Liberals pretty much think that blacks are stupid. Yeah, there are racists who are conservative. So what? Do people have to love us before we can be at ease achieving for ourselves? I don't think so. In fact, I don't care if you hate my guts. What matters is that everyone has equality of opportunity to achieve and can succeed based on the merits.

I've read a few of Clarence Thomas's legal opinions; this was a few years ago after he ascended to the SCt. The man's brilliant. Half the time, lawyers and such can't write worth a damn; not this man. Clarity and deep thought are his middle names. Reid doesn't know what he's talking about; he's just saying about Thomas what many liberal whites say about all blacks.

Nice to see Coulter as stupid and head in the sandesque as ever.
