I think this country needs to relish the days when a black man recognized the significance of the Republican Party, when real black men like Martin Luther King and Jackie Robinson recognized that the party of Lyndon Baines Johnson intended to enslave them for the next 100 years.
Because the black man of the 21st Century who identifies himself as a Democrat is nothing more than a sycophant, a willing shill for the Master, the Democratic Machine, provided he gets, in the common parlance of the ghetto -- no matter what color you are -- "paid."
Nowhere else is this more evidenced than by Fox News black poster child, aka Columbia University associate professor Marc Lamont Hill, who dishonestly asks, "Why do white Republican candidates hate poor people?"
Yet put him to the task to back up his sweeping generalities -- his, dare I be racist and say, "stereotyping" of "white people" (since Republicans are all, you know, white people) -- Marc Lamont Hill is as silent as every black woman who ever rode in the back of a bus before Rosa Parks. But not because he's scared; it's because he's a liberal professor with a cushy job who doesn't have the time of day to talk to people who don't share his skin color, unlike Mitt Romney.
I'll be the first to say that Mittens is not my candidate; I'll be the first to say there isn't ONE Republican in the 2012 field who is my candidate. I'm growing to be a grumpy old man before my time, middle-aged, stagnant in his profession, and tired of seeing the lesser of two evils as the path to prosperity for America. But I'm a realist, and anybody but Obama put to the grindstone by a Republican Senate and House in 2013 looks better than King I'll-Do-It-With-Or-Without-Congress, be it Mittens or Newt or the ghost of Ronald Reagan.
But when you ask a man to own up to his statements, when you tell a man who questions the integrity of Republican candidates -- and therefore Republican voters -- to own up to what he says, and he hasn't the time of day to respond, you start to wonder.
I mean it's not too unreasonable to respond to this: "Hey Doc, I don't have enough human digits to count the poor conservatives I know. How's your thesis now?" It does, after all, put him on the spot: I'm not black, I'm poor, and I'm conservative. Just how in the world could I be so damned wrong?
Moreover, if Mr. Hill is going to call into question the credibility of Republican candidates, he's more than open game for someone calling his credibility into question: "Don't you think that grand, sweeping, untruthful statements about 'cons hating the poor' are disingenuous?'"
But that's the point. He doesn't have to respond to questions about what he says. He's a black man; there's a black man in the White House. How on earth could he go wrong? Nevermind that the "black man" in the White House just shut down a major opportunity for Americans to have jobs (which has his precious labor unions so pissed they want to storm the White House) in an economic climate where the "unemployment rate" is dropping simply because people -- black, brown, green, orange, white, yellow -- have given up looking for jobs. It's Hill's stump, and he's a swashbuckling liberal New York professor with a fast-talking mouth ... and a brain the size of a peanut.
And I dont' fault him. It's a Brave New World. Why the Democrats have just proposed to establish a Reasonable Profits Board. Wesley Mouch would be proud. (If you're uninitiated, the Mouch reference is from Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged -- and you're living it.) But if Marc Lamont Hill were honest -- really honest -- he'd tell you that the next time you see a black liberal castigating Republicans of any sort on TV, it's only because his media fame pays him better in the long run than his day job. In other words, Marc Lamont Hill hates you, Whitey. In fact, just read his Twitter feed to see how racist he really is. He is, after all, cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal's publisher.
