House Democrats Get Training to Play the Race Card

House Democrats are getting formal training in the best practices of tossing out racial slurs. That’s not to say that racial smears don’t come to Democrats naturally. Clearly, they do. From the Ku Klux Klan (founded by Democrats, for Democrats) to today, the Democrats have put race front and center of many policy debates. They’re just getting training on refining how they use their natural racial dishonesty. Think of it as a race-baiting finishing school.

House Democrats received training this week on how to raise the issue of race to defend government programs, according to training materials obtained by The Washington Examiner.

The prepared content of a Tuesday presentation to the House Democratic Caucus and staff indicates that Democrats will seek to portray apparently neutral free-market rhetoric as being charged with racial bias, conscious or unconscious.

So if you espouse economic freedom, you’re a racist now. Even if, as the trainer acknowledges, race isn’t your intent.

As samples of race-coded rhetoric, Wiley reminded the Democrats of statements by Republican presidential candidates Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. Of Gingrich’s famous comment about President Obama, her distributed remarks note, “Calling a Black man ‘the food stamp president’ is not a race-neutral statement, even if Newt Gingrich did not intend racism.”

Rational thinking: Also racist.

Wiley, who did not respond to the Examiner’s inquiries yesterday, offered this warning to Democrats about talking to “someone [who] opposes racial justice” but could support Democratic policies: “Don’t make the mistake of telling them they’re in the problem. It’s emotional connection, not rational connection that we need.”

This training is proof of quite a few things — notably, that the Democrats are the racist party — but also that accusations of racism will literally never go away. That trainer is making money off of race baiting, as have Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and other before her. As long as they can make money on racism, they’ll keep it alive.
