According to a New York Times article, Congressman Robert Pittenger said what he really felt, but didn’t have the courage to stick by it. His heat of the moment apology is him backpedaling because at his heart, he’s a racist and he didn’t want anyone to know it. I have met a lot of racists and they all feel this way. That blacks owe whites for what they have. That blacks should just be grateful for their lot in life. That blacks aren’t as good as whites. That blacks can’t compete. That blacks have every advantage and they just wallow in their despair.
Now, they are some racists who have black friends. The kicker is those black friends are just like them (minus the racist part). They live the same kind of life and the racist is able to point to their black friends and say, “I’m not racist. See, I have black friends.”
So, when Congressman Robert Pittenger says that blacks hate white people, he’s just saying what he truly believes. When he says he’s sorry, well, his racist base knows he has to say that to make the damn liberal media happy.
It’s time those of us who are not racist take a stand. We cannot tolerate this anymore.
Reasons – all fiscal – for returning to the 1950s: strong unions, higher wages, bright future, infrastructure…If you ignore the social implications (and, I’m assuming you can), what’s not to like about the 1950s? Eisenhower had his choice to be Democrat or Republican. Today, he wouldn’t find a home in the Republican Party…
Good cop stories, because we need them right now. Not all cops are bad. We need to keep that in mind.
I know a lot of people who won’t believe even this report that confirms that there was nothing illegal being done. Also, the report confirms that help could not arrive in time – and, even includes a finding that President Obama cleared help to be sent, but none was. In other words, we’ve wasted time and money trying to pin the blame on two people instead of blaming the whole system that allowed all of this. I’d like to point out that I can’t remember any of my friends getting all worked up over any other Embassy attacks that have happened, but the same ones have their panties in a bunch over this one. You have to wonder why. The truth is that we are not doing enough to protect our people when they serve our country overseas, but because of rhetoric and politics, we won’t fix what’s wrong. I haven’t had time to read the full report, but I plan on doing so.
I’m attaching a link to the NY Times article, as well as a link to the actual report.
