Bob Beckel Tries To Recast Racist Liberals

Bob Beckel Tries To Recast Racist Liberals

My opinion of liberals was reinforced last week as I was channel surfing late one evening and happened upon Bob Beckel blustering about Dr. Ben Carson. As many of my regular readers are aware, I do not watch Fox News, but happening upon Beckel at that moment froze my finger just as it readied to click the channel button on the remote control.

Dr. Carson had accurately referenced elitist white liberals as being “the most racist people out there.” That was enough to set Beckel off. He objected to Dr. Carson’s assertion, and launched into a screed accusing him of being ignorant of history. But, Dr. Carson is not ignorant of history – rather it is Beckel who is attempting to deny history.

Beckel claimed that it was liberals who had gone into the South to march with Dr. King – not least of whom was his father. He claimed that his father was a “liberal who went into the South and was arrested 57 times in the civil rights movement registering blacks.”

The telling moment was when Beckel said, “It was liberals who have been on the forefront of every major”… and then caught himself. He did not finish his statement. And well it was that he didn’t because what he was about to assert was a damnable lie, and he knew it.

He was emphatic that liberals did not just lead the fight to end Jim Crow and advance the cause of the “po-po black folk” but Beckel intimated that Dr. Carson owed his freedom and quality of life to white liberals because they were responsible for ultimately ending segregation.

The problem with Beckel’s baneful oratory is that his version of things raises the question that if Beckel et al. were liberals leading the charge to end segregation and help the “nigra,” as Jimmy Carter was wont to call blacks, what were the other Democrats doing?

CLICK HEREBeckel’s elitist arrogance is as demonstrative and transpicuous as his vulgarity, and his version of the facts differs from the reality of the situation, his father’s involvement notwithstanding.

White liberal Democrats were responsible for Jim Crow; White liberal Democrats were responsible for the Ku Klux Klan; White liberal Democrats fought to preserve slavery. The White Democrat Party was formed to deny civil rights to blacks and to secure slavery.

Perhaps Beckel could explain why, if liberals were responsible, as he aggressively insinuated, for ending Jim Crow then why did a white Democrat President have to enlist white Republicans to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964. If White liberal Democrats played such an important part in the life of blacks during Jim Crow why was Dr. King a Republican?

Beckel’s arrogance is sickening and contemptible, but not out of character for white elitist liberals. They look down their arrogant noses at Americans of color who do not stay in their place, as worthy of their strongest public denouncement – after all they “gotta keep dem-dar colored folk on da plantation.”

White elitist liberals are everything Dr. Carson said about them and more. Let us not forget that it was Beckel himself who, as I wrote in a syndicated column, “invoked a Saturday Night Live rendition [read: mimicked a southern black drawl] of scripture references while debating Ann Coulter regarding the hate-filled racist cartoons of [Condoleezza] Rice.” (Negroes vs. Black Conservatives; 11/23/04) But he never invoked disdain for the degrading cartoons of Dr. Rice.

As I wrote in the aforereferenced op-ed: “From 1876 until 1960, Democrats successfully blocked all progress in civil rights. Prior to that, from 1860 to 1876, Republicans were singularly responsible for all black civil-rights accomplishments despite fierce opposition by Democrats. Much is made of the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision striking down state segregated education. What is never mentioned is that the Supreme Court ruling was a reinstating of what Republicans had done nearly 75 years earlier in their 1875 civil-rights bill, which was overturned by Democrats in 1880.”

Beckel’s comments were intended to tell a man of honor and dignity that he needed to sit down and shut his mouth based on his race. White, elitist, bigoted liberals are quick to do that. We hear it in their comments and we see it in the way bigoted, white liberals in the media try seek to suffocate the voices of Americans of color when we, according to them, forget our place.

Carson is right. They are the most racist people around. And equally as egregious are the white liberals who decry even our right to think freely. As I have referenced in newspapers that carry my work around the country, I recently had a white liberal managing editor tell me that I didn’t have an opinion unless he said I did.

Beckel was wrong in another way and that is – it wasn’t liberals who fought for equal rights for all people, it was Americans of good conscience. And there is a demonstrable difference.

    Beckel is a racist liberal democrat who can lie with straight face. Bob would eat crap out of sewer before he admitted he was wrong on anything.

    Ben Carson is low key and a man of integrity, not a politician. He could be our salvation, and is to be admired for all he has accomplished. Our best hope.

    I sometimes wonder if Fox News puts those liberals on to present a pseudo ‘fair and balanced’ view or to just show how ignorant they are… Who cares about the first point as the MSM is abundant and as for the second point, they succeed whether they want to or not…

    The Black jouranalists, Doctors, educators, et al on Hannity Monday night made it clear who are the worst of the worst and that is educated Blacks who plant this idea of racism in the majority of the Black population. It was shameful to hear what these fine people had to say regarding the Black racism and how they have been treated by Blacks and those liberal white journalists who hate Conservatives and Independents. Blacks are being used by the liberals as pawns to keep the socialsist idealism alive. It is time for all races to wake up to what is happening to our Country in the name of "racism"…and Beckel is a speck in the dirt which exists.

    He went off his meds, or something! That diatribe was just…unacceptable. Beckels is THE REASON I don't watch the show "Live" here on the West Coast: I appreciate being able to FastForward every time that ignorant humanoid opens his trap.

      Addendum: I want to start a NEW PARTY — The Party of Common Sense (PCS [also good for Political Correctness Sucks]) so that the brilliant Dr. Ben Carson can be our NOMINEE and the "First Black" PRESIDENT! If NOTHING ELSE, he needs to replace Sebilius (sp? don't care) as the head honcho in charge of the Dept. of Health & Human Services. Common Sense…THAT scares the crap out of the Lib/ProggieTards!!

    Let us not forget that champion of civil rights Franklin D. Rosevelt who with the swipe of a pen confiscated all their property and imprisoned, Oops “interned”…. the Japanese America population in 1942 for the duration of WW2.

    Thank you for publically sticking up for conservatives and Ben Carson! He doesn’t deserve this hateful treatment – what has he said that is egregious? The hateful reaction of the progressives to his harmless comments should make their ideology and agenda clear to all.

    The white liberals in this nation have done more than anyone in driving a wedge between the blacks and whites. Unfortunately they are still engaging in their bad hhabits

    Thanks for outing Beckel and setting the record straight.

    Great response.Mychal – As recently mentioned i too have stopped watching Fox news – over the past 6 months- ironically it was during an early morning search they had a repeat of that show and I just caught Beckle mention Dr. Carson whom i admire – then going off in his tirade. i was so disgusted with his bombastic arrogance and ignorance speaking as though they and only they (white liberals) were the saviours of equality for all the races. I couldn’t listen for to long but it stuck in my craw – So your remarks gave me some relief that it is being addressed …..your last sentence was perfect . “it wasn’t liberals who fought for equal rights for all people, it was Americans of good conscience. And there is a demonstrable difference.” Brilliant – Thank you for giving me a quick, easy retort for when the situation arises. Cheers.
