A Little Intellectual Honesty on Harry Reid, Please: PC on the Right is Ugly

By Debbie Schlussel

While I dislike Nevada U.S. Senator and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid as much as the next conservative, the political correctness and intellectual dishonesty over his comments, coming from the right, is absurd.

harryreidpresidentcamacho

Was Harry Reid Really Wrong? Would We Vote for President Camacho?

Yes, Reid’s comments about Barack Obama, as reported in “Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime,” a new book by two mainstream media reporters, weren’t smart.  But were they untrue?  And should he be attacked with the same political correctness and intolerance from the right that we always denounce from the left?  Oh, and by the way, if conservatives are going to accept the reporting by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, then they must also accept the book’s reporting–hardly a surprise–that Sarah Palin was a complete ignoramus, basically a dummy (no shocker, given that the woman barely graduated with a journalism degree after six years at six different colleges and couldn’t name the magazines or newspapers she read).

According to the book, Reid said that Barack Obama could become the first African-American president because he was “light-skinned” and because he did not speak with a “Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”

Since Senator Reid reportedly apologized, I assume the quotes are correct (as the Palin stuff likely is, too).

But, while the use of the word “Negro” and making the statement at all were not wise, is what he said really false? Is it really that objectionable?  Would Americans, today, really vote for a guy like President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho in the movie, “Idiocracy“?  No, they wouldn’t.  And that’s not a bad thing.  Here’s a video from “Idiocracy.”  Do you really think Harry Reid is wrong, and this guy, below (played by actor Terry Crews) could be Prez?  I sure hope not.  And it’s not racist to say so–though perhaps not the way Reid said it. I wouldn’t want a President of any race who can’t speak English correctly and is culturally low-class. Would you?

I would vote for the darkest-skinned Black man with the right views and qualifications in a heartbeat. Former UN Deputy Ambassador Alan Keyes comes to mind, and I supported Bishop Keith Butler in the Michigan U.S. Senate Republican primary (which he lost).  But most liberals would not.

And, if we were intellectually honest, we’d admit most of us wouldn’t vote for this guy . . . yet:

And if Reid’s statement–while impolite– is so incorrect, so false, then why weren’t conservatives in an uproar when Bush Secretary of State Colin Powell told an MTV audience that he was picked by Bush for this position because he is “light-skinned” and “looks White”?  Why weren’t conservatives–now shocked, shocked! over Reid’s private comments–upset when Shelby Steele rightly wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed that White liberals liked Obama and White guilt types would vote for him because he was a light-skinned Black who spoke the Queen’s English and didn’t act all ghetto like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, thus they weren’t threatened by Obama?

Was that a lie?  No, Shelby’s comments were correct.  And unlike the pack travelers and group thinkers on the right today, I’m not gonna judge Harry Reid by a different standard than I judge Shelby Steele.  That would be the true racism.

A good deal of this absurdity and blatant set of double standards on the right comes from its inconsistent intellectually half-full standard-bearers who are far more ignorant than people realize.

The queen of political correctness on the right is Michelle Malkin, more aptly called Fraudkin.  She is chief among those calling for Reid to resign and whining over his comments.   But it’s not the first time.  Malkin agreed with Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and openly called for Don Imus’ firing on FOX News Channel, when he made comments about the Rutgers women’s basketball team.  But then reversed course when she saw those on the right didn’t agree with her and suddenly remembered–after the rest of us pointed it out–that, hey, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are the real racists here.  Welcome to America, Michelle.

Before that, Malkin figured she’d use her PC views to try to silence Ann Coulter, a few years ago, when Coulter used the “F-word” for gays in a joke about John Edwards, at the CPAC conference for conservative activists.  The jealous Malkin circulated a petition against Coulter, denouncing people who use the word that rhymes with maggot.  Then, she cornered her bud Sean Vannity on her unHot Airheads video interview, putting him on the spot and trying to get him to denounce Coulter.  He wouldn’t budge.  She lectured Vannity on the video about how her  young kids heard the word because she brings them to CPAC.  Uh, Michelle, CPAC is for college kids.  Maybe you should stay home and raise your own, and they won’t have to hear it.  (I guess Malkin doesn’t allow her kids to watch her TV appearances or read her blog, where they’ll hear and read her talking about “balls,” “get a pair,” and being “screwed.”)

Now, Malkin, her Hot Airheads site, and her employee Ed Morrissey are part of a trumped-up BS grievance against me with the Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission, with which they are trying to silence me from speaking about how their friend, Emily M. Zanotti (who filed the grievance and lists their names with their approval), cyberstalked me for several years and praised Muslim death, rape, and torture threats against me and my family.

Yes, on the right, there’s far too much political correctness, intellectual dishonesty, and attempts at squelching free speech.

And Malkin isn’t the only hypocrite on the right who espouses this censorship and won’t admit that Harry Reid, while not smart to say it, really wasn’t off the mark.

Yes, there is too much political correctness on the left, and they get a free pass. But when those on the right engage in the same PC, they are not only hypocrites, but they squander any right they had to decry the stupid, artificial limits on speech and ideas.

Americans–even those afflicted with White Guilt Syndrome and liberals, who are the most racist–won’t be electing the Al Sharpton or the ghost of Rick James to the White House anytime soon.

And that’s a good thing.  Even if Harry Reid is the one who said so.

We have Camacho already. He just took Reids advice. Reid still can’t say the “N” word though. He should go. What’s good for the goose….

Joe on January 11, 2010 at 11:05 am

They didn’t flinch too much after Bidens “clean” comment.lol

Joe on January 11, 2010 at 11:06 am

I know, enough with the phony outrage already. Everyone knows that’s how liberals see their most ardent supporters anyway. Sharpton, Jerkson and Obama gave Reid their blessings and that’s that. The only thing I’m offended by is the double standard. If Rush Limbaugh had said anything even remotely like this there would have been and uproar. Of course he wouldn’t because he doesn’t think like Democrats. Furthermore, what did he say that was inaccurate or so offensive?

mark hammond on January 11, 2010 at 11:10 am

    Sharpton is “offended” by Reid’s remark but does not demand that he resign! When Trent Lott made his stupid remark (which was at a birthday party for Strom Thurmond) I think he and others were intoxicated and he thought he would flatter the old guy who died shortly thereafter. I cringed when I heard it live and knew he would get into trouble over it. Having said that, I think Reid should go also – he is a two faced phony who wants to keep black voters on the liberal plantation. He also trying to talk Harold Ford Jr. out of running for the senate in New York State against Schumer puppet Gillebrand. Ford is smarter than Gillebrand.

    Julian on January 11, 2010 at 4:36 pm

You know why people get so upset—he spoke the TRUTH. That’s what really gets me—due to PC, people cannot speak the TRUTH anymore. BTW, you are dead right about Sarah Palin. My wife is crazy about her (I think not so much HER, but what she represents–a middle class mother who “gets it”). So, we got to meet her (with hundreds of others) at one of her book tours.
She honestly comes off as a sweet, nice soccer Mom who isn’t the brightest bulb on the Christmas Tree.

I actually think she would be great in Congress since she has at least lived in the real world and knows how ordinary people live and think. BUT there is NO WAY she should ever be President or VP. She would just be a nice looking puppet and that’s the last thing we need now.

jimmyPx on January 11, 2010 at 11:22 am

Most of the outrage by conservatives is not about Reid’s words, but about the double standard of it all. What Reid said is true and nobody should be offended by it. If someone said that I get freckles when I’m in the sun and that I have a slight southern accent, which are true, I wouldn’t be offended in the least; no matter the race of the person who said it. But, our society is so sensitive about race issues that one must always watch their Ps and Qs, especially in the public arena. I have no clue if Reid is a racist. I have no opinion on the matter b/c I have not followed a lot of his writings, speeches, etc. I don’t think what he said is racist, but he wasn’t very wise to say it. If a conservative would have said those things s/he’d be carried out on a rail. Jackson, Sharpton, Carter, Garafalo, NAACP, and most liberals would have thrown a fit, but since a liberal said it – it’s ok. It’s the double standard – the hipocrasy – that we hate.

Marla on January 11, 2010 at 11:24 am

jimmypx: Good post until you joined Debbie in your bashing of Sarah Palin.

And what did you expect from somebody forced to sign 20 books a minute, a thorough analysis of the Federalist Papers??

T: What the heck does signing books she didn’t write have to do with her extreme ignorance for 40-odd years? Nothing. She hasn’t a clue about the Federalist papers or even the morning paper. Facts are stubborn thing, regardless of whether you refuse to face them and cavalierly dismiss them as “bashing.” The women is clueless. DS

topthecharts on January 11, 2010 at 11:42 am

    topthecharts,

    No, but she spoke to those gathered for like 15 minutes before she signed books. I wasn’t that far from her and I have seen many public speakers as well as politicians in person many times. When on TV, the person can be “packaged” and their flaws cannot be seen. In person, this is not so. So many like Sarah Palin (like my wife) by what she represents —-but do not look at the total person.

    I actually like Sarah Palin as a person very much and proudly bought her book. In my humble opinion, she just does not have what it takes to be President. Remember

    jimmyPx on January 11, 2010 at 11:52 am

    Its not palin bashing its stating facts. Look if you want to support someone who was for the tarp program and said we should legalize the illegals go for it. My contention with palin is she’s a myth no one really knows what she stands for because all she did was give populus rants but she never stood up for conservatism in interviews with the liberal media. She reminds me of a political opportunist and that screams george bush. I didn’t know if debbie supported palin or not but if she sees her the same way I do then that means debbie is the real deal. If anyone is gonna watch the sean vannity show tonight get prepared to see him scream like a school girl over harry reid. What a joke!

    tyler on January 11, 2010 at 12:48 pm

There is a double standard. Conservatives aren’t helping themselves by endorsing PC. And yes, Palin typifies the current state of the conservative movement, not being able to think, low standards and a mob mentality to public life. The Right should want to be better than Left but there is as much hypocrisy, mendacity and dishonesty on it as there is on the Left and human nature knows no partisanship when it comes to engaging in excess. Jimmy PX, most Americans would agree with your assessment and while I do agree an average American would make a better President than an overeducated intellectual like Obama, the truth is Palin is not presidential league stuff. And it shouldn’t be politically incorrect to acknowledge it.

NormanF on January 11, 2010 at 12:03 pm

I agree with your analysis. CNN played a clip of Trent Lott’s comments (basically praising segregation and claiming if Storm Thurmond had become president, the U.S. wouldn’t have had so many “problems.” Now that was (without question) racist and it revealed a racist attitude. And, I don’t think Reid’s remarks come anywhere close to Trent Lott’s. (Some are just trying to make political hay out of it and try to get Reid to resign. They should find better ways to occupy their time.)

J.S. on January 11, 2010 at 12:03 pm

OK Obama is a light skinned black or HALFrican. Obama saw from the get beginning that the MSM would guilt the American voter about his race. “OMG he is black we must roll out the red carpet.” I am so flippin tired of people pandering to blacks because they were enslaved. Every race or group of people have been victimized before in their history. So we must walk on egg shells so their feelings won’t get hurt? F**k that!! Obama achieved everything he has in America. All blacks have that opportunity. To his credit he made the most of his opportunities. Just ask his half brother living in Africa if blacks in America have more opportunities.

As for Malkin she is going to the Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission about you? What a baby. She want to get you de-barred? Why cause she couldn’t achieve what you worked so hard for? I really thought she had more intelligence and class than that. I guess not.

Joe on January 11, 2010 at 12:11 pm

…Debbie…get a clue…and stop downplaying this….the fact that reid , who is somehow Leader of the Senate, is is either so stupid …. or so politically tone deaf that he STILL uses the word “Negro” disqualifies him from any role that impacts our lives.

Catfur on January 11, 2010 at 12:42 pm

    I guess Reid disqualified any really “blackskinned” candidate when he made his stupid comment. Does Al Shapton realize that?

    Julian on January 11, 2010 at 5:04 pm

Debbie I always enjoy your posts, straight shooter and no BS.
Agree with most of the post and agree with other posters about double standards and WAY too much PC going around.
Keep up the good work.

mdreb on January 11, 2010 at 12:43 pm

They are all drinking Brawndo! That must be it!

cirrus1701 on January 11, 2010 at 12:47 pm

I would disagree with you (partially) on this one Debbie. What offends conservatives about this (and numerous other examples like Clinton’s) is that it would be a “career ender” for a conservative if they were to say the exact same thing-truthfullness of the statement or not. It is about the constant race-baiting by the left which is held to a different standard by their party and the MSM. Racism, misogony,corruption, infidelity, etc. are all easily explained away, as long as the person is a democrat.

duane on January 11, 2010 at 12:53 pm

I wonder if Sen Byrd considers Obama a half-white “Negro”.

Pinandpuller on January 11, 2010 at 12:57 pm

At least Prezdet Camacho is not trying to hide who he really is, like most political weasels do. Just look at the previous two dem Presidents – Slick Willey (pervert, possible accessory to murder) and the nutty Carter (anti-Semite, coward).

Jarhead on January 11, 2010 at 1:04 pm

Duane that may be true but it doesn’t change the fact we should see things as they are and not how we would like them to be.

NormanF on January 11, 2010 at 1:04 pm

This PC nonsense must stop – we are all Americans. If you must use a hyphen to describe who you are, you have a problem. We are Americans, not some other group. I don’t think I ever have called myself a German – Dutch – Hungarian – Catholic – American.

Jarhead on January 11, 2010 at 1:13 pm

He was correct. Also, his color was an effective sheild against really strong attacks during the 2008 campaign. Howard Dean, who held similar views as a candidate in 2004, was unable to get out of the coral, due to his lack of racial cover. In short, Barack Obama was used a vessel to push ideas, policies, and approaches that would have left a non-black candidate on the outside looking in.

Worry01 on January 11, 2010 at 1:38 pm

“(I guess Malkin doesn’t allow her kids to watch her TV appearances or read her blog, where they’ll hear and read her talking about “balls,” “get a pair,” and being “screwed.”)”

I think Michelle is channeling some sort of frustration with those remarks that we won’t go into.

Worry01 on January 11, 2010 at 1:54 pm

Debbie,

I guess I haven’t paid attention to the new Reid controversy.

I really couldn’t care less about the book remarks, I thought where he deserves the heat is for being such a hypocrite. Earlier, he blasted the Republicans by comparing their so called foot dragging on health reform to wanting to not stop slavery in the past and now was caught making these remarks.

Reid and his ilk need to be defeated because their ideas and policies are plain wrong.

Jeff W. on January 11, 2010 at 2:48 pm

You can’t compare Colin Powell saying something like that to Harry Reid because Powell is black, and it was an allegation he made against Bush.

That being said, the right is p-o’d because of the blatant double standard at play here, and the left is showing it’s hypocrisy, and slapping Reid on the wrist while circling the wagons. Can you imagine if Mitch McConnell had said this?

K: If you bothered to read what I wrote, you’d know that I noted the double standard, but it doesn’t make it right to engage in the same PC, as those like Michelle Malkin are doing, and calling for the guy’s resignation. Hardly the same thing as being upset by a double standard. Also had you bothered to read, I noted that Powell got away with it b/c he’s Black, but that we shouldn’t apply different standards to Blacks and Whites. That’s hypocrisy. RIF–Reading Is Fundamental. DS

Kelly on January 11, 2010 at 2:54 pm

Again the failure for everyone to understand is Dr. Alan Keyes ran for President and he is a dark skinned black man. This man is brilliant. I voted for Dr. Keyes and if he was pink, purple or green I would have voted for him. Now if I lived in Nevada I would have voted for McCain because Nevada was a battleground state, California totally liberal. So will the MSM ask Alan Keyes if Harry Reid’s comment has merit? For some there are those who will never vote for someone based on their race, skin color, gender or religion.

Reid made an observation the MSM was talking about openly. Will America vote for a black man? Reid just went one step further and suggested that America wouldn’t vote for a dark skinned black man? The comment was an observation. Not that black skinned people couldn’t inherently meet the qualifications.

Now would a white man ever get elected in a city, state, district where blacks represent over 70% of the population? Which would be the reverse of the demographics of America. Since blacks voted 96% for Obama against McCain and 90% for Obama against Hillary, I think the real question is why do black vote by race more than anyone? Why do Blacks vote more selfishly by race than any other group? Hillary was a legitimate candidate in the primaries and she barely cracked 9 to 12% in the primaries?

As for Alan Keyes versus Obama? 2004 Illinois senate debate.

Harry Reid – look forward to his defeat.

Julian on January 11, 2010 at 4:26 pm

Note the chapters on John Edwards and his wife. This is a terrible story and far worse than what has been reported so far (if it is true).

Julian on January 11, 2010 at 4:28 pm

Nothing wrong with the Republicans giving this one or two minutes, about the double standard i.e. nothing happens to Reid but Trent Lott — no great prize himself — gets plastered.

The fact that the Republicans are making so much of this shows not only their succumbing to PC once again (like their failure to oppose affirmative action, illegal immigration, Islamic tyrannies like Iran, etc. etc.), but their lack of an effective overall political program. Since they won’t campaign on the real issues facing us, they are desperate for new talking points, and they think this will grab attention. Opportunism just like Bill Miller; don’t be motivated by what’s right or best for the US in the long run; instead be motivated by what they think will get them a quick boost. Duh, Iran is too complicated. Duh, getting out of the UN would step on too many toes, so pick on a buffoon like Reid (though of course, as you said he was right this time).

The RNC always seems to support the most obnoxious liberal candidates, now Bennett in Utah, who is facing conservative opposition, Crist in Florida, ad nauseum. The Republican Party really needs to wake up.

Re Keyes, of course he is an exceptionally intelligent and able person. Unfortunately, I think he has a tendency to get sidetracked in his campaigns, getting all caught up in tangential and even frivolous issues, in spite of his strong conservative credentials. If he develops the ability to stay focussed on the big issues, he could be an extremely formidable candidate.

Great minds think alike, Deb.

This is yet another reason I’m an independent voter and refuse to identify as either a conservative or liberal. I have my personal preferences. I make them known and let others figure out whether they’re right, wrong, conservative or liberal.

Harry Reid’s comments are factually correct. I also agree with his thesis that these qualities made Barack O’Bama more electable. The faux outrage from partisan Republicans is hypocritical.

If Harry Reid had any courage or integrity he would have stuck by his commentary. But that’s not the Harry Reid we know. The Harry Reid we know has no real principals. The Democrats could do much better with another Majority Leader.

There is NO Santa Claus on January 11, 2010 at 8:46 pm

Since many of you have said Harry Reid’s comments are factually correct, I presume using the word Negro shouldn’t be politically incorrect anymore.

So, let’s see. Alan Keyes is dark-skinned Negro. Colin Powell is light-skinned Negro. Obama is half Negro. 96% Negro voted for Obama instead of McCain, 90% Negro for Obama vs Hillary. Please enlighten, coz I am not sure if it’s factually correct (Black = Negro, I am not American btw).

For us who’s not American, the work Negro is the same as Latino, or Coffee, or Tea, or anything which doesn’t have any implied derogatory connotation. My question to many of you who think Harry Reid’s comments is factually correct, will you start using the word Negro in refering to black starting tommorrow (or perhaps now)? Talking about hypocrisy, if you think the partisan republicans is hypocritical, then for you who’s not hypocritical, it shouldn’t be any problem in start using the word Negro. Am I correct? or not? Please enlighten.

For Harry Reid apologizing for a factual truth, can it not be considered as hypocritical too? If what you said is fact, why don’t you stand up and defend it?

I’ve read the article. I know Debbie said using the word “Negro” is not wise. Why not wise? Isn’t it political correctness that made it not wise? If black = Negro, and it is factual truth, why not just use the word interchangably?

Who have the absolute authority to define using “Negro” is wise or not?

A Black Democrat (Rep. James Clyburn [D-SC]) said it’s okay to use.
http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2010/01/11/top_black_dem_the_word_negro_is_okay_to_use.html

Now, whose standard should be applied? Debbie’s or the Black Democrat’s?

SpicaChang on January 12, 2010 at 2:31 am

I think Reid is a very foolish man, but I can’t fault him for his comments which were true. Yes, most of the Republicans are taking the low road in making a big deal out of this. It was typical for 60 minutes to not even mention the story in their interview with the authors of the book. It’s sad that the word “negro” has become a dirty word for most of us. In Spanish it means black. In scientific terms it used to denote a race. Now it has become worse than a cuss word, verboten.

Daniel on January 12, 2010 at 8:32 am

Unless Conservatives start deconstructing PC morality constructs built by Liberals, Conservatives, like chess, will be manipulated along using word like “Negro” (Black Issue), “Denialist” (Global Warming Issue), and all other guilt-inducing issues/terms they can think of. One day, if the liberals are successful, they might equate “Conservative” with “Racist”, and conservatives will then felt sinful :-), another wonderful baggage to white guilt, conservative guilt. Hopefully the day may never come.

Since when uttering “Negro” started to be sinful :-) ? According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Negro , since Civil Rights Movement.
—–
“It fell out of favor by the early 1970s in the United States after the Civil Rights movement. However, older African Americans from the period when “Negro” was considered acceptable, initially found the term “Black” more offensive than “Negro”.”
—–

Guilt levels of the word “Negro” is set by Liberals voltmeter, so now it is impolite or sinful to utter the forbidden word, although if you read the wikipedia link above, you’ll read that:
—–
In Brazil and Portugal negro is the most respectful way to address the African ethnicity, with preto being considered a racial slur.
—–

The liberals must be so genius and the conservatives so idiot because conservatives started dancing to the tune conducted by Liberals symphony. The Conservatives fired Trent Lott without checking whether Trent Lott agreed with segregation or not. Good, conservatives became what Liberals want, judging based on PC construct built by Liberals. The Liberals set the standard, and conservatives worshipped the PC image erected by Liberals.

Perhaps seeing the success of Civil Right Movement to jail Conservatives into Liberal built PC-based morality prison, the Liberals start another movement like Al Gore’s Global Warming Movement and I don’t know what more movements, guess Americans must know more.

Since Liberals don’t need to abide by any standard, like Hamas don’t need to follow any Geneva Convention, when Conservatives accused Harry Reid’s Negro comment as racist, they just bend the rules (that were initially written by their movement) with “what’s wrong with the word Negro”. Perhaps to gain more power, they also showed who’s the boss by assigning Obama the Christ a divine power to forgive, “I forgive thee, Harry Reid”. Now you all must submit to Obama, if he forgive you, you are forgiven, if not, then you may be burn to hell by both Liberals and submissive Conservatives. But the forgiveness is not free like Christian Dogma, Obama gave the reason why he forgave, because Harry Reid is “the passionate leadership on issues of social justice and I know what’s in his heart”. I presume that means you’ll less likely be forgiven if you’re Trent Lott, Rush or another Conservatives. So, liberals with their movements have now shown they hold the powerful divine power, the power to forgive and condemn.

Unless Conservatives start some kind of movement too, like Political-Incorrect-Right-Movement (what’s Tea Party purpose?) to grant the right to utter the word “Negro” and “Islamic Terrorism and Jew-Racism”, Conservatives strings will be forever pulled by Liberals who form movement to movement.

Okay, this is just my imagination on the process of turning the world into political correct prison.

SpicaChang on January 12, 2010 at 8:35 am

I don’t trust the book, “Game Change” because it trashes everyone but Obama. When writing about a possible Obama-Edwards deal, the authors write:

“When Obama heard about the suggested quid pro quo, he was incredulous. That’s crazy, he told Axelrod. If I were willing to make a deal like that, I shouldn’t be president!”

Does anyone seriously believe Obama was above “quid pro quo” after the way he has purchased the votes of Nelson, Landrieu, etc? When they tell the inside story of Obama’s response to the Reverend Wright story, then I will take it seriously.
