Hysterical lefties claim Susan Rice is a casualty of sexism, racism

As Twitchy reported, Susan Rice has apparently withdrawn her name from consideration for Secretary of State. Despite the litany of legitimate reasons Republicans and conservatives had to oppose her nomination, lefty pearl-clutchers are seizing on sexism and racism as the cause for her withdrawal:

We think we’re fed up with identity politics.

Unbelievable. Is it so beyond liberal comprehension that Rice buckled because of her enormous baggage and shameful conduct with regard to Benghazi, or that she is falling on her sword for The One? If these race-mongerers would stop foaming at the mouth long enough to take off their gender and race goggles and have a look at reality, they might realize just how asinine their outrage truly is.

That is genuine colorblindness. Accountability is empowering. And until the Left figures that out, we’d better get used to identity politics.

    Dona Brazile has some nerve. In May 2008 she’s the one who literally stole Hillary’s Clinton’s delegates and awarded them to unqualified Barack Obama. So she has NO RIGHT to say she stands for qualified women. She’s a cheater and a crony.

    President Obama has already explained that Ms. Rice’s mistake was caused by the fact that she had no intelligence.

    I thought it was a refreshing show of candor from our President.

    Case closed.

    Can you imagine living in the tortured state these people live in, day after day?

    Their enemies are abstractions, “racism” and “sexism”. Even worse, every day of their pitiful lives is felt as a “fight” against these invisible specters, against secret messages they perceive in the everyday speech of ordinary people.

    It’s quackery.

    These are our leaders. Sad but true.

      Racism and sexism have been eradicated right? Oh, maybe they still exist in some places, but certainly not in America!

      • $30423294

        I think they exist. I am saying the definition is vague and therefore there is a high likelihood of abuse and misplaced self-righteousness.

    Obama threw Rice out there to further his lie and obviously, she went along with it. So did Hilary and Panetta. As far as I’m concerned, all four should be fired.

    The only thing I think she is guilty of, is her lack of proffesionalism and work ethic, you don’t go spreading what you know is a lie and expect for all the people to take it as an universal truth. Her Pinocchio complex finaly caught up with her.

    Amb. Rice is a casualty of affirmative action, quotas and cronyism allowing an unqualified individual to rise to a position for which she lacks the ability, intellect and wisdom. She is a failure because of her beliefs, her actions, and her associations.

    So….if a white conservative woman runs for Mayor of DC and loses, will Donna Brazile call racism/sexism since the DC population is predominantly black?? I think not…sad to think the lib/prog women are so willing and eager to pull such sad, raggedy, piddly little stunts to further their own demise…oh, well…

    I totally agree UN Ambassador Rice was a victim of racism and misogyny. Not just john( Im still a sour grapes eating sore loser )McCain Lindsey Graham but Kelly Ayotte Susan Collins Kirsten Powers Jeanine (I can spot a liar in Obama, but can’t spot the liar with the 2nd family I was married to) Pirro etc. Typical behavior.

    Ms. Brazile is not going to “stand down”. R u kidding me! The question Ms. Brazile is “who gave the stand down order in Benghazi?” We will hear nothing but how the right is racist and sexist for the next four years but we must fight back every second.

    We all know it wasn’t about sexism or racism. It’s about the frothing anti-Obama derangement that has taken control of the rightwing media. I mean, how else do you explain the witch-hunt against her and the faux scandal that goes with it?

      What about the frothing anti-Bush derangement during his term. I seem to recall y’all insisting that Cheney started the Iraq war just to get Halliburton a damn contract! And what about the witch-hunt against Gonzales (State Dept.)? Or Michael Bolton as UN ambassador…? It’s an endless list.
      Oh but you forgot or didn’t even pay attention to those because….. ? Oh right, those were serious. lol

      • Streetiebird

        A better comparison would be with the other Rice, Condoleeza. But you’re right, there were witch hunts against Gonzales for approving torture in black and white.

    If opposition to Susan Rice was truly about racism and sexism, Obama would not allow her to resign, and would be defending her much more forcefully.

    Obama knowingly and willingly threw her under the bus that Sunday, when he sent her out there to lie to the American people, to protect his ass and his re-election.

    She is rightly criticized for her role in spinning the story/hiding the truth, and also received criticism from Dems for her Canadian oil Interests.

    Allowing her to resign, and blaming it on “GOP racistm and sexism” is pure baloney and cover for their own self interests.
