Senator Ted Cruz believes that attacks on Marco Rubio are because he’s a conservative Latino.

 “I think Democrats and the media are afraid of Marco Rubio because he is a smart, intelligent, conservative Hispanic. And they are looking for any excuse they can to attack him, because that threatens them,” Cruz told reporters during a tour of a Texas gun manufacturing plant north of Austin. “Look, he took a drink of water in a speech. And it dominated the news for days with one network saying it was a career ender.”

He’s right.  Cruz should know, has been the victim of this racism in recent days as well.  The New York Times fired the first major volley at freshman Texas Senator Cruz.  MSNBC’s Chris Mathews followed suit.  The liberal “pile-on” has begun.  It’s their effort to marginalize a smart, conservative Latino who didn’t need them to succeed in life.  It’s what we can expect from the left-wing biased hacks that dominate alleged news sources these days.  Cruz represents a spoiling of their narrative that Latinos are a bunch of extreme, left-wing, statists, who want, deserve and need government to take care of them from cradle to grave.  One has to excuse these extreme left-wing forces.  Throughout history, they’ve done this sort of thing to minorities who dare to shatter the ideas of dependency they’ve crafted for us.

Chris Matthews followed the New York Times hit piece on Senator Ted Cruz with some analysis of Cruz’s performance at the confirmation hearing for the unqualified candidate President Obama has chosen to be the next Secretary of Defense of the United States.  Matthews was indignant that Ted Cruz was asking for financial statements that might show that Chuck Hagel received money from foreign governments or extremist groups.  Cruz told the Senate Armed Services Committee, “We do not know, for example, if he received compensation for giving paid speeches at extreme or radical groups.”   Matthews immediately cried “McCarthyism.”  Matthews ignored the fact that Hagel has been less than forthcoming on his financial dealings with the committee.  Mathews also ignored the other Senators who expressed grave concern over Hagel’s evasions, not to mention his competence to hold down the “Sec-Def” post.  But Matthews and the New York Times weren’t invoking McCarthy when the Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, declared on the Senator floor that 2012 GOP candidate Mitt Romney had paid no income taxes for ten years.  Reid made the claim right in the middle of the campaign with no substantiation, or proof of any kind.  Even after documents emerged proving Reid lied through his slimy teeth, no apology, no retraction, just liberal business as usual.  The white, extreme, “Occupy Wall Street” Reid, gets a pass. The conservative Latino gets tarred and feathered.  That’s your modern day press. They’ve grown quite adept at overlooking questionable practices perpetrated by liberals.

Who can forget left-wing icons Dick Durbin and Ted Kennedy actively seeking to thwart the advancement of a Latino because he didn’t know his place?  Miguel Estrada was on a fast track to be the first Latino nominated to the Supreme Court.   That’s before liberals derailed his prospects.  A memo from Senator Dick Durbin’s office back in 2001 showed why liberals fear Men like Cruz and Estrada.

“[The groups] They also identified Miguel Estrada (D.C. Circuit) as especially dangerous, because he has a minimal paper trail, he is Latino and the White House seems to be grooming him for a Supreme Court appointment. They want to hold Estrada off as long as possible.”  But Democrat’s pure racism doesn’t stop there.

Here’s a gem from Senator Ted Kennedy’s office.

“The D.C. Circuit is far too important to appoint about whom we have so many questions. Key labor, civil rights, environmental, and administrative law cases are decided there, and we know it is a ‘feeder’ circuit for the Supreme Court. The White House is almost telling us that they plan to nominate him to the Supreme Court. We can’t repeat the mistake we made with Clarence Thomas.”

That was a twofer in the racism department, hitting both Hispanics and African-Americans.  Liberals and democrats will stop at nothing to keep minorities on the liberal plantation, even destroy the lives of the people who don’t fall in line.

Mainstream media is getting to be truly tiresome. Predictable as ths surge of attacks on Senator Cruz is, one would think that it's effectiveness is diminishing in a boy-who-cried-wolf too many times kind of way. The sooner the loathsome corrupt MSM fades away, the better.

Racism is as racism does. The Dem Party is hammering the idea that racism in fact goes by skin color and political party. They do this by mitigation: slavery, Jim Crow, wistful longings for the days of Ozzie and Harriet, claiming a cause and effect from those days and a still present racism the actual mechanics of which they can never quite describe in clear facts.

What liberals have in place of facts are weird theories like white privilege and the New Jim Crow. Simple disagreement with Obama somehow itself becomes a form of racism. Using bizarre mitigation theories, the fact Obama is the President is somehow too obvious for a liberal, so they must make it look like he's bravely striding into a racist wind and only became President through the grace of god and good luck when white racists were distracted.

The problem is that having one definition for racism and bigotry for different ethnic groups, women and gays goes completely contrary to the Bill of Rights, which doesn't seem to concern the Dem Party one bit.

This is how racism is mainstreamed: it comes pre-packaged with a set of instructions, blame and excuses that shows it is in fact a form of justice. If white people had voted for Romney to the tune of 95%, liberals might have a point in all this. That didn't happen, but liberals are fond of acting as if it did. In fact for that type of bloc voting one has to go to the racist Dem Party to find it.

This tactic is going to get more difficult to get away with as time goes on, especially if the colleagues of these men publicly call out the media and the Democrats for what they are doing (I know, I'm being redundant again).
