Since it’s a day ending in “-y”, Laura Ingraham is once again using racially charged language to slam liberals; this time suggesting that Democrats would punish black voters if they leave the liberal “plantation.”
We began with Ingraham noting that the President was campaigning for Republican Illinois gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner’s opponent, Democratic Governor Pat Quinn. This notion of a Democrat campaigning for a Democrat is apparently surprising to Ingraham, who also pointed out that Corey Brooks — an African-American pastor who blamed the robbery of his church on his support for Rauner — had been blasted as an “Uncle Tom” in an anonymous voice mail he received.
“Look at what they did to Col. Allen West, look at what they did to Justice Clarence Thomas or tried to do. This is what they do!” Ingraham said, invoking the specter of slavery as only Republicans can:
You can’t get off the plantation! It is their sole province for maintaining control of the black population. You must be liberal, you must be for certain policies that Al Sharpton and Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid favor.
You can’t waiver because if you think for yourself, you are as that [voicemail] said, a sell-out.”
What did we do to Col. Allen West? I’m curious here, because I was under the impression he didn’t need help looking like a fool. He seemed to me like he was doing a right fine job on his own.
