Here are two quotes which basically express the same view
First there is this one
“That’s what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity. There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less.”
“But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land,”
Those words are causing outrageous outrage because it is RAAAACIST! Yet this quote, from a couple of years back, is OK.
“Certainly, it wasn’t easy for those of African heritage who had not come here voluntarily and yet in their own way were immigrants themselves. There was discrimination and hardship and poverty.”
“But, like you, they no doubt found inspiration in all those who had come before them,” And they were able to muster faith that, here in America, they might build a better life and give their children something more.”
So what is the difference? Well the first quote came from Ben Carson, a Conservative, so it is out of touch, insensitive, and yes, yes, and yes again RAAAAACIST!
The second came from President Obama, so it is moving, touching, and brings perspective and healing to America or something.
See the difference there? No, well neither does any other sane person. But Liberalism is not abou sanity is it? No it is about emotion, and outrage, and being or pretending to be victimized by everything. You see when it suits a Liberal to cry racism they take comments such as Carson and go nuts. But when it suits them to use very similar comments to praise a Liberal president, well, you know Liberalism is an ideology of convenience
