It makes no difference to San Francisco-based Bond and the legions of latte liberals across the fruited plain who foam at the mouth whenever anyone commits the unpardonable sin of telling the truth about the Democratic Party, which has always been the party of race-baiters. It is the party of Bull Connor, Orval Faubus, George Wallace, and Sen. Robert C. Byrd (D-W.Va.), who had worked as a paid community organizer for the Ku Klux Klan. It is the party of Jim Crow. It is the party that fought vehemently against the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Democrats whose job requires self-delusion about the race-baiting nature of their party quickly condemned Walsh.
Walsh’s Democratic opponent in the upcoming general election, Tammy Duckworth, was officially offended, calling his comments “not only offensive, [but] especially irresponsible coming from a sitting member of Congress.”
Jesse Jackson Sr., a shrewd opportunist who has long made a handsome living by promoting government dependency, was haughty on cue. The undisputed heavyweight champion of shakedowns said Walsh’s statement constituted an attempt to “incite and polarize” voters. One can almost hear a laugh track in the background as the professional polarizer claims his life’s calling has been to “gain for all vulnerable Americans equal protection under the law.”
Walsh’s mundane observation may be American Politics 101, but Bond’s group still wants to make an example of him for daring to speak what to Democrats is an unpalatable truth. The group is enraged because Walsh is calling out Democrats for their nonsense.
It needs to be said that Bond probably isn’t calling Walsh racist because he’s actually racist. If Bond actually possessed any credible evidence of Walsh’s supposed racism she would have presented it. This is all she and the other leftists who for years have been smearing the Tea Party movement as racist have remaining in their quivers.
Anybody stupid or evil enough to oppose President Obama’s socialist juggernaut must be racist, they reason. This is the only way that opposition to left-wing utopianism makes sense to Democrats.
The utter lack of evidence of Walsh’s alleged racism won’t stop Bond’s group from smearing the freshman congressman.
