Politics: The Racial Radicalization of Toure Shows a Lack of Civility Still Remains
The bitter and divisive rhetoric stemming from the Obama campaign has been taken to higher heights as Vice President’s Joe Biden recently made a recent racial comment to African American voters while on the campaign trail. His comments set the stage for MSNBC liberal contributor Touré to whip out his handy “race” card when discussing Romney’s fiery campaign rhetoric.
On Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden told a largely black audience in Danville, VA that GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Republicans were going to “put y’all in chains.” While Joe Biden is no stranger to making gaffes and controversial statements, this was no slip out of the tongue. This was a deliberate attempt to divide Americans on the false premise of a racial divide instead of focusing on the vital issues affecting the households of American families today.
Mitt Romney responded to this hateful and partisan attack by holding the White House solely responsible. “These personal attacks, I think, are demeaning to the office of the White House and the comments yesterday by the vice president just diminish the White House that much more.”
Romney was already on the offense this week, attacking the class warfare mantra of the White House minions by delivering a sharp and relevant message to Obama: “Take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago.” But leave it to an MSNBC contributor to follow the White House’s example and insert a racial divide.
On Thursday, author and MSNBC contributor Touré gave the most absurd and asinine analysis on Romney’s reaction to the Obama campaign. Touré made the assertion that it was coded language by Romney to provoke the GOP base into believing Obama was “an angry black man” and that this would encourage people to hate Obama. He even went so far as to suggest that this was Romney’s “n****rization” of Obama.
What Touré has actually done is attempt to put America in a regressive era correlated with modern political thought. Not only does Touré bring disrespect to the office of the President by equating him to such a derogatory word usage, but he also sheds light on the bigoted nature of himself.
Touré has simply done what many liberals do when there is a voice of opposition to the President’s policies: play the race card. In his attempt to paint Romney and conservatives as the party of racists, he made it publicly known that his lack of intelligence is due to a rejection of progress made in racial relations and culture. Touré is apparently stuck in an era of division and hate. He actually enjoys making a reference to it because he feels that he sympathizes with African-American culture on a basis of victimhood. It’s hard to believe that he sees the first black President of the United States of America as symbolic of racial regression instead of highlighting a historic achievement in the history of America.
Touré doesn’t represent African-Americans, or any American, for that matter. He represents a brainwashed, self-absorbed liberalistic extremist trapped in a time zone of oppression while the rest of America strives towards equality and harmony among mankind.
He views American’s discontent with the Obama administration as a synopsis of a racial division in America. If there is a racial division that exists, you can thank Touré for it. His racial radicalization mocks the Civil Rights movement and those who sacrificed to put an end to discrimination and racial bigotry.
Touré likes the racial divide. He desires for there to be racial tension between Americans. Why? Because without it, he wouldn’t have a talking points memo and a healthy case of lunacy to share with us. It’s individuals like Touré that cause us to step backward every time we step forward in the right direction.
I’m often asked if I think America will ever be totally eradicated from racism. That remains to be seen. For people like Touré, it’s a matter of a mindset. You are what you think you are. Touré thinks Obama is a victim. He envisions African-Americans as victims. Fortunately, this is a notion that has been, and will continue to be, rejected by many.
