Rep. Clyburn: Criticism of Susan Rice full of ‘racial code words’; MSNBC’s Wolffe also cries racism

That’s right. Now “incompetence” is the latest entry in the Handbook of Racial Code Words. You see, 97 House Republicans signed a letter strongly urging President Obama to avoid nominating lying liar who lies, Susan Rice, for Secretary of State.

Race-baiter extraordinaire Rep. Clyburn (D-S.C.), of course, again heard “dog whistles” that only he can hear.

We thought criticizing her was totally sexist? Now it’s also racist?

Shall we invent a new “ist” for such things? Sacist, perhaps?

Clyburn is following in the footsteps of other great race-baiters.

Pointing out that a liar is, in fact, a liar is also raaaaaacist! Twitter libs also frantically, and shamefully, whip out the race card.

Sigh. Predictable.

And a usual suspects at MSNBC does the same. Enter, lapdog Richard Wolffe.

More from NewsBusters:

Appearing on Hardball, the journalist sneered that it was “outrageous” the way McCain was acting, raging against “this witch hunt going on the right about these people of color, let’s face it, around this president. Eric Holder, Valerie Jarrett, now Susan Rice.”

Such a charge seemed to shock even Chris Matthews. He sputtered, “McCain, who had his own daughter attacked, was accused of having an illegitimate child when, in fact, he adopted a young girl from South Asia. You’re saying that McCain’s being driven by racial prejudice here?” Wolffe confirmed, “There is no other way to look at this…” Of course, McCain opposes Rice’s nomination because of her dissembling on the issue of the terrorist attack in Libya.

Yet, Wolffe hinted, “What is it about Susan Rice? And the answer is there aren’t any good foreign policy explanations for [opposition].”

Dude. When even race-y race baiter who baits, Chris “orgasmic” Matthews, thinks you are nuts …

Sane Twitter users have had it; the boys who cried “dog whistle” is getting really old. They point out the obvious.

Code word!

Huh. Speaking of Rice, what would Clyburn and Wolffe have to say about these disgusting racial slurs aimed at Rice?

Of course, they’d say nothing. She’s not the “right kind” of woman or minority.


And you know what really is racist and sexist? Demanding that someone be treated differently due to gender or the color of her skin. Demanding that she not be held accountable for her own actions, because how could the poor dear?

Bingo. Susan Rice has proven her incompetence time and time again. She’s also a liar. That is the issue; all the race-baiting in the world can’t change the facts.

    Isn’t it disturbing the low expectations that democrats have for women and minorities?

    And they deceive themselves into believing that this is, in some perverted way, a deeply respectful and sensitive thing to do.

    Nah uh. To people with self-respect this is called patronizing.

    Hey democrats: you’re not fooling anybody. We’re on to you.

    • DeBaliviere

      At least the low expectations are realistic. Thank God for quotas.

      • $30423294

        If you mean that democrats tend to elevate fools to power, then yes I get your point. I suppose that one has to be pretty mixed up to believe the things that need to be believed in order to be a rank and file democrat.

        • DeBaliviere

          Never underestimate the ability of Democrats to delude themselves: “WAR IS PEACE,” “FREEDOM IS SLAVERY,” “IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH”

    • EastValleyConservative

      They actually haven’t deceived themselves into thinking this–the politicians know better. The ignorant electorate falls into two categories: 1-for the “greater good” we’ll roll with it 2-really are ignorant enough to believe it.
      No Democrat is to be questioned lest you be labeled with some -ism. What they forget is their fake outrage is overused, overplayed, and ineffective.

  • DeBaliviere

    Who’s asleep at the wheel on Cryburn’s Metro route while he’s flapping his gums on CNN?

  • Maria

    So dissing Col. Allen West, Herman Cain, Mia Love, Condi Rice, and all should be considered racism too with the Liberals’ logical in play. Double standards are confusing!

    Unlike Liberals, we don’t use code to say what we mean, we SAY what we mean blatantly. We’re not passive aggressive, we’re straight forward and don’t sugar coat.

    • DeBaliviere

      If the Democrats didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have standards at all.

    • yahneverknow

      I swear, they’re gonna have to publish a playbook soon. I don’t understand these convoluted rules. Will there be legislation and regulations for this now?

      ~Can only use word “incompetent” to refer to a male person whose skin is whiter than a Smartie.
      ~Can only use word “homeboy” to refer to the 1/2-African-American President if you’re an old, white, happy warrior named Biden. Same rule applies to “bright,” “clean,” “articulate,” and any other word Joe Biden uses.

      I give up.

  • Steve_J

    Fall back of racists to any criticsim is to cry racism. Something Clyburn is good at.

    • DeBaliviere

      “Racism” is the last refuge of a scoundrel.

    • MoxieLouise

      The problem is, they’ve used it so much it has become nothing more than an irritating gnat easily shooed away. Alinsky warned them that over-use of their “weapons” would end up making those weapons powerless.

  • Wally

    Stangely I thought she was incompetent, but did not know she was black until they called it racism.

    • Teresa Davis McCormick

      you know .. back when her name came up I thought the same thing. Looked her pic up when they started yelling racism.

  • AWomaninTX

    It’s just that race-baiters have gotten accustomed to the cry of “Racist!” being an effective way to shut people up. “Racist” has also been a way to get people to tolerate bad situations & ideas, if it didn’t just make the people go away.

    They’ve become so lazy, so accustomed to using it as a tool, that the obvious — such as Colin Powell and Condollezza Rice — escaped them.

  • Joseph Phillips

    Stupidity, deceit, condescension, arrogance…. these words aren’t racist, just accurate.

  • Soapy Johnson

    Real racists don’t speak behind veils using asterisks or calling it the
    “n-word,” and they most certainly don’t say: “I want to rope that apartment guy
    and hang him from a tree.” Actual racists don’t sugar-coat …

  • detroit19

    Clyburn is an embarrassment!

  • riddler1620

    The soft bigotry of low expectations raises its head again. Ambassador Rice inability to do her job has nothing to do with sex or skin color from those of us on the right, whereas it has EVERYTHING to do with it as far as the left is concerned.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Until the race-baiting racist libturds mentioned it, I had no idea Susan Rice was black or African-American or whatever it is they call themselves. As far as I was concerned she was just another representative of the administration. Kinda wonder how soon the cries of racism will begin to fall on deaf ears and just fade into the rest of the stat-icky noise coming from the left.

  • Baba Ghanoush

    I don’t support Susan Rice because she is incompetent. If that makes me a racist then so be it.

  • Jack Deth

    Race is quickly becoming this administration’s ONLY defensive and offensive weapon for any massive screw up that would have crucified any Republican.

    Fully expect an impromptu sit down meeting between the Congressional Black Caucus and the Republicans who have signed on to keep Ms. Rice out of the SecState slot left open by Hillary. Also expect the caucus to threaten those Republicans with hints of nation wide rioting (Pretty much what happened to Justice Roberts right before he stabbed America in the back with Obama Care) if Obama and Ms. Rice don’t get their way.

    • yahneverknow

      Yup, pretty much.
      I just want to shake people bodily now. They are so clueless about what’s happening. So busy screaming about racism, sexism, whatever-ism…

      They need a time out.

  • Everybodys All American

    I think you need to start thinking like the left to figure this out. Susan Rice was specifically sent out there because she was black. She had absolutely no involvement until she was sent on the Sunday TV shows. Hillary should have been the one doing this work if anyone. However, the administration knew crying racism would be their fall back position if they needed to defend the actions on Benghazi. Just cry racism. Accusations of racism always works for the left.

    • Grumpa Grumpus

      @Everybodys All American:

      That’s a good catch.

      She’s the stalking horse— the hand we’re supposed to watch.

      The question is: what’s the other hand doing?

  • yahneverknow

    They’d better hurry and publish a glossy, 20-paged pamphlet with these code words or no one is going to know what they are.

      • yahneverknow

        /adds “glossy” to code word pamphlet
        /also adds “code,” “word,” and “pamphlet.”

    WHY is Chris Matthews surprised? All Richard Wolffe did was use the EXACT SAME logic that Matthews himself used when attacking critics of the president. Remember his “perfect husband, perfect father” rant? It was ‘there is NO incompetence; therefore, any and all criticisms MUST be race-based.’ Wolffe is doing the same thing here, and I suspect that Matthews was only feigning shock in order to appear objective on the matter. He shouldn’t have bothered.

    America above all that we know is right with America.”

    It’s official… the word racist has lost all meaning. The real racist, like the KKK and the Neo-Nazis, are probably happy as can be now. *sigh* I hate this adaminstration…

    • Zane Henry

      The KKK and most other racist organizations receive money from the Southern Poverty Law Center, or they’d have been gone long ago. When you can’t find ACTUAL racism, you have to force it to exist, thereby justifying your existence as an “anti-racism” organization. (See also FBI building fake bombs and cultivating otherwise mostly harmless radicals into terrorists e.g. Underwear Bomber, Times Square Bomber)

    Okay, this is funny (from Wikipedia): Rice said that her parents taught her to “never use race as an excuse or advantage” and also, She also held “lingering fears” that her accomplishments would be diminished by people who attributed them to affirmative action…..LMAO !!!

    Clyburn calls for affirmative action for her to get privilage over the “white devils” accusing her of incompetence: √

    So apparently the DNC can spend millions defeating Mia Love and Alan West only to have white males take the seats but they are not racist? All they are doing is desensitizing us to the term. We know what is in our hearts and their words are getting less and less effective.

  • [email protected]

    There are many fine, intelligent people of all different races, both male and female. It is the height of disrespect to any race to lower the standards of competancy to get that incompetant woman in any office. She should slink out the back door. Dems, the head of the black caucus are clainming it isn’t because Susan Rice is incompetant, although I personally see overwhelming evidence that says she is, it is because of racism and because she is a woman. They are claiming a 2 for. They are really stepping down in the world. Other people are saying how much America has sunk, half are sad and half are elated. Just like the outcome of the election. Half are happy the standards have sunk so low and the other half despairs.

    The phrase ‘witch hunt’ is sexist.

  • TWG2A

    Being called a racist by the racist lefties is akin to being called a “big fat stinky doody head” by a five year old child. They have completely erased any validity to the term “racist”. It means absolutely nothing today. The next time some racist idiot calls you a racist, shove a vile accusation right back down their snout: “How did your family react when they found out you raped those three little boys in the library basement last summer?” They want to hurl vile accusations, I’ll raise their bet.

  • TWG2A

    If blacks can’t be questioned about competency, integrity or accountability, doesn’t that mean we should have no blacks in position of power and responsibility? We must be able to critique government officials. They work for us. If we can’t examine their record, that makes them dictatorial tyrants.

  • Dondalonda

    no, i’m sorry: “I don’t support her coz she’s a woman” or “I don’t support her coz she’s black” is sexist and racist, respectively. but “I don’t support her coz she hasn’t fulfilled her job-description…” oh, wait, that’s also sexist and racist.
    how about, “She can’t be criticized because she’s a woman and black”! where’s the equality in that?! choosing someone to do a job they can’t do based on their gender and color?! i’m basically preaching to the choir, I know.
