FOLLOWING IS MY SYNDICATED COLUMN THAT APPEARED MAY 24, 2011. I SHARE IT TODAY AS A FROM THE VAULT PIECE.
Blacks like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Jeremiah Wright, Michelle Obama, Louie Farrakhan and all the blacks who believe them, you are right – white racism does exist, and it is spelled “arrogant elitist white liberal.”
I don’t do nice and I’m not particularly fond of elitist liberals, but I am absolutely intolerant of a condescending, racist Punchinello like Mary Anne Marsh. I have long held that we wipe our feet after walking through the chicken yard, and elitist white liberal pundits like Marsh are like appendages that expel the reason for wiping our feet.
On a recent Fox News program – with a smug rebuke that typifies elite white liberals – Marsh condescendingly scolded Fox News contributor Angela McGowan, telling her that she was, in effect, in denial for not admitting that only a racist would raise questions Obama’s college records. Her arrogance closely resembled the unctuousness of her counterpart who was found pushing the benefit of eating apples in the Garden of Eden.
She is nothing short of an elitist liberal racist, projecting her mores and viewpoints unto others when they legitimately question the hidden areas of Obama’s life – that every president and leader in the history of the world has freely provided. It is unconscionable for her to piously use code-speak suggesting Angela McGowan is shilling for conservatives. And every person of color watching or listening knew that was exactly what she meant.
Marsh has a long and superlative record of backing losers at the expense of those they injure. She defended Bill Clinton’s condemnable behavior, his assaulting of women, marital infidelity, abuse of his spouse and lies – treating those who saw his failings as inconsistent with and dangerous to the office he held as the absurdities of right-wing conspirators. She defended and championed John Kerry for president, and she near daily pushed us to believe that George W. Bush had somehow betrayed his country by not fighting in the Vietnam War – even though she defended Clinton, who had a paper trail of legitimate questions surrounding his absence of Vietnam service.
Obama didn’t break the color barrier for America, he broke it for elitist liberals like Marsh. And you can bet, if he hadn’t gone to Harvard, wasn’t pro-homosexual, or pro-Margaret Sanger’s systematic extermination of blacks and the poor, or a pro-Alinskyite spawn of a Marxist Kenyan and a communist, Marsh and her kind wouldn’t be championing him. She and her ilk objected to a decent (although clearly misguided) black Democrat like Harold Ford and mercilessly attacked every conservative black appointed to office or who won office.
Now she and her ilk are obfuscating their racism by hiding behind race to cover the failings and charade that is Obama. And truth be told, they have no choice but to make this presidential cycle about race.
Race is all Obama has to run on. He cannot run on jobs – there are none. He cannot run on housing – the housing market is abysmal. He cannot run on energy – high fuel prices are dragging the economy down and working families with it. And if he wants to run on energy, he opens the door to having to explain the presence of former CEO of General Electric Jeff Immelt in his midst. His spending eclipses that of all other presidents combined with nothing to show for it but increased debt – even as he and Geithner try to convince Congress to authorize the spending of more.
His wife lacks the grace and elegance of Rosalind Carter or Jackie Kennedy. He has arbitrarily involved us in two wars he refuses to even identify for what they are. Even the American Civil Liberties Union is threatening action if he doesn’t adhere to the War Powers Act as they acknowledge “his predecessor [George Bush] did.”
He can’t run on border security, and proclaiming himself the hero in killing bin Laden has had a very limited life cycle despite his best efforts. By election time, the Middle East will be in full-blown conflict thanks to his meddling and incompetence.
He and/or his wife have insulted the queen, insulted British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, betrayed Hosni Mubarak, invaded Libya, betrayed his longstanding friendships with Jeremiah Wright, Cornell West and Louis Farrakhan, and has repeatedly tried to sabotage Israel’s security.
Ergo, there is even more reason for elitists like Marsh to mask their contempt for blacks that eschew the zeitgeist of victimology and dystopia created by liberal bigots who today still view blacks as incapable of being independent of them.
Marsh and those like her would do well to encourage young black women to model themselves after Angela McGowan. Black women aren’t white enough for Marsh, et al., to have them advance radical feminism.
I, for one, will not sit silent as Marsh and the bigoted elitist brood of liberal racists like her look down their arrogant noses at blacks as being worthy only of a handout or indentureship.
