This week John Sununu figured it was the former, saying the only reason "Republican" Colin Powell is supporting Obama for reelection is because both men are black. Sununu later backtracked on his comment, but his original epidemeric epiphany was correct: Colin Powell loves his hide more than he loves his pride, is crazy about his skin more than the state were in. Now Colin Powell is saying "my party is full of racists." He's right. The Democrat Party is his party, and it is indeed full of racists....and hypocrites. He should know, he's one of them.
Colin Powell is supporting Obama's reelection because he is a fellow black, and with the great majority (96%) of blacks supporting Obama for the same reason, Powell feels he must go along. If Powell does anything less, he will be a pariah to friends and family, most of whom belong to the Black Party first, the Democrat Party second, and the American nation dead last.
Not all blacks support Obama, and we are seeing a growing number of blacks who think with their brains rather than their epidermis. I have been delighted to see black conservatives on Twitter, denouncing Obama and supporting Romney, sounding very much like any other conservative. These people are mature adults with real principles and authentic, independent thought. I welcome them to our movement, and hope their numbers grow.
Unfortunately, and obviously, the race-baiting faux Republican Colin Powell isn't one of them.
Four years ago, Colin Powell made a string of accusations against the Republican Party, along with his recommendations on how to become liberals instead of conservatives. His comments were asinine then, and are asinine now. I rebutted him in an article titled Colin Powell, Shut the Hell Up. Do read it, as it illustrates quite well the lame-assed thinking of this liberal phony.
