First he said this (in a Politico Op-ed in September ’09):
Proud Americans, black and white, fought for too long and too hard to have the claim of racism be used in such a cavalier fashion. Blind charges of racism, where none exist, not only are an affront to those who have suffered the effects of racism, but it weakens our efforts to address true acts of racism and makes them more difficult to overcome.
Then he said this (back in December ’09):
I’m kinda sick and tired of the left and Democrats in this country when they get in trouble and don’t get their way and their backs are up against the wall on legislation or whatever it is their trying to do, they go to that card, they play that race card, that slavery card, that civil rights card.
Then he said this today
“I don’t see stories about the internal operations of the DNC that I see about this operation. Why? Is it because Michael Steele is the chairman, or is it because a black man is the chairman?”
That my friends, is a hypocrite in action. And he’s the head of the GOP.
If you’re being discriminated against because you are African American, Mr. Steele, you have every right to call people out on it. I encourage you to do so, in fact. But when you slag others for doing so when they “go to that card, they play that race card,” it makes you a hypocrite.
I’m just sayin’…
