Can you believe we once thought Colin Powell was a Conservtive?

He has turned out to be nothing more than a Democrat, and he seems to have a touch of Racial Obsession Syndrome going too. Right Scoop has video, that will not embed here of Powell calling the Zimmerman verdict “questionable”. Good grief!


Colin Powell A “Latent Democrat”? More Like A Full Blown Democrat

In fact I will go this far, Colin Powell has already left the GOP. he might not have officially said it, but he is a Liberal. He has all the talking points down, all the snide remarks about how secretly racist the GOP is. In fact if he is not a Democrat, he should get an Oscar for acting like one. Smitty seems to agree with me, more or less Frankly, Powell can leave and take Chris Chrsitie with him, I am sure Charlie Crist will welcome them with open arms, and lots of fake tan spray!


Oh goody, let’s hear another RINO bash Conservatives

Colin Powell makes an ass of himself in this interview with David Gregory. Sorry, it is true. Powell was a man I admired for a long time, but frankly, Powell is simply parroting the talking points of the Left these days. He says the GOP has to “change”. Change to what? A carbon copy of the Democrats?  Video is at The Daily Caller here is part of the transcript

“I think the Republican Party right now is having an identity problem,” Powell said. “And I’m still a Republican. … In recent years, there’s been a significant shift to the right, and we have seen what that shift has produced: two losing presidential campaigns. I think what the Republican Party needs to do now is take a very hard look at itself and understand that the country has changed. The country is changing demographically. And if the Republican Party does not change along with that demographic, they’re going to be in trouble.”

I would argue that we need better messengers to take the message of Conservatism to those groups  rather than trying to sell them the same identity politics the Democrats have been selling them.

The GOP showed its “dark vein of intolerance,” Powell said, in a variety of unhelpful and self-defeating ways in the most recent presidential campaign.

“You can’t go around saying we don’t want to have a solid immigration policy, [or that] we’re going to dismiss the 47 percent, [or that] we are going to make it hard for these minorities to vote, as they did in the last election,” Powell said. “What did that produce? The court struck most of that down, and most importantly, it caused people to turn out and stand in line, because these Republicans were trying to keep us from voting.”

 Where does Powell get that the GOP tried to make it harder for minorities to vote? What, showing ID is RAAAAACIST to Powell? Frankly this race baiting has to stop, especially from individuals that ARE smart enough to know better!

“There’s also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party” he continued. “What I do mean by that? What I mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities. How can I evidence that? When I see a former governor say that the president is ‘shucking and jiving,’ that’s a racial-era slave term. When I see another former governor — after the president’s first debate, where he didn’t do very well — saying that the president was lazy. … And then there’s a third word that goes along with it: birther, the whole birther movement. Why do senior Republican leaders tolerate this kind of discussion within the party?”

Good grief! Here we go any criticism of Obama is RAAAAACISM! Perhaps Mr. Powell could enlighten us as to why calling a debate performance that was, well LAZY, lazy is racist? Frankly, I think Mr. Powell’s main issue is that he is as addicted to the Identity Politics and race baiting as the next Liberal is.

Let us sum up Powell’s recipe for Republican resurgence.

1-Stop pushing for border security

2-Stop calling for lowers taxes

3- Do not expect minorities to respond well to Conservative ideals

4 Stop trying to stop voter fraud

5-Never, ever, under any circumstance dare criticize Obama

In short, it would seem that Powell wants a new Republican Party, so he can go vote republican without and still be a Liberal at heart!


John Sununu says nothing racist, MSNBS immediately accuses him of RAAAAACISM

Via American Power comes your Saturday morning BS from the home of MSNBS

I hate to break the news to Michael Eric Dyson or ED Schultz, but MANY Black Americans DO support Obama strictly because of his color. Likewise many White people likely think it is their duty to vote for Obama, lest they be accused of racism by the likes of Schultz and Dyson. That is sad, but who should we blame for that mindset? Perhaps we ought to look at the Left, who have, for decades upon decades done everything they can to convince Black Americans that their skin color is everything! They have done the same  with women, Hispanics, and Gays, it is called identity politics. The Left loves to divide us, based on gender, skin color, religion, sexual orientation, class, income, age, you name it and the Left will use it to divide Americans.

If the Left can convince voters that they cannot really be Black, or really be a woman unless they vote for people who, I will use one of the Left’s favorite phrases here, “look like them”, then they can count on heavy majorities of those groups to support them. The pushing of identity politics is the real racism, because it assumes that people vote, or think the same because of their skin color. The Left, too, has made a habit of screaming RAAAAACISM at anyone who dares challenge Leftist ideology. It is in seemingly every statement any Democrat issues today. Think about this, when was the last time you heard Democrat NOT invoke class, race, gender, or sexual orientation when they speak? They are devoid if ideas that work, so they are reduced to playing the part of a snake oil salesman pushing accusations of classism, sexism, Homophobia, and of course racism. Is that really a party you want to support?


Sorry Colin, but your home is in the Democratic Party

Seriously Colin, don’t let the door hit you on the way out!

Colin Powell issued a sharp rebuke Tuesday night to Rush Limbaugh and Dick Cheney for trying to exclude him from the backbiting Republican Party.

Before some 1,500 business leaders in Boston, as well as Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and wife Gisele Bundchen, the retired general and former secretary of state spoke openly of the dispute roiling the Grand Old Party after election setbacks and polls putting its popularity at roughly one of five Americans.

“Rush Limbaugh says, ‘Get out of the Republican Party.’ Dick Cheney says, ‘He’s already out.’ I may be out of their version of the Republican Party, but there’s another version of the Republican Party waiting to emerge once again,” Powell told the crowd.

Yes, that party HAS emerged,long ago, it is the Democratic Party! Face the music here Gen Powell. Your values are not the values of the Republican Party. If they were you would have been criticizing Obama’s Socialist schemes. All we have heard from you, sir,is silence over Obama’s pursuit of an imperial presidency.

I must gather, sir, that you are either in agreement with Obama’s path to Marxism or you are too busy taking cheap shots at real Republicans to notice. Either way, it really is time for you to take your act to the Democratic Party.
