Republican Leaders Call On Reid To Resign For Racial Remarks

Texas Sen. John Cornyn, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, calls on Reid to step down.
Texas Sen. John Cornyn, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, told POLITICO that Reid should immediately step down as majority leader.

Cornyn said Reid's comments "were embarrassing to the Senate"...

Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele calls on Reid to step down.

From Hot Air:
“The reality of it is this, there is this standard where Democrats feel they can say these things and apologize as long as it comes from one of their own,” Steele said on “Fox News Sunday,” equating Reid’s comments with the racially charged ones that led to the outster of Former Republican Leader Trent Lott. “And if it comes from somebody else, it’s racism.”

“Remember this is a leader who only a few weeks ago was using the context of slavery to talk about health care,” said Steele, the first African American head of the RNC. “It’s an old mindset when you are using language in 2008 that harkens back to the 1950s.”

Don't hold your breath.

And this is news somehow?

Statists have been using black folks as cover for their tyrannical aspirations since that terrorist psychopath John Brown was funded by six wealthy northern abolitionists. Nay, even back to the war of the Revolution, when the British government tried to incite slave revolts.

The times have not changed much. Any initiative to de-fang washington and put political power back where it belongs (and originated)...the states...will be met with the usual clamor about "racism" and "slavery." Neither of which had anything to do with the War for Southern Independence.

What's amazing is that the black community hasn't woken up to the fact that they've been used as pawns for centuries.
