A rule of thumb seems to be emerging when it comes to J. F’n Qerry: When you find his mouth open, the liklihood is that his size 13 foot is planted squarely within.
Now he purports to have Congress honor a man who was a Communist and a racial separatist.
Why has John Kerry sponsored a Senate resolution honoring a Stalinist who championed racial separatism?
The Soviet Union awarded W.E.B. Du Bois the Lenin Peace Prize. Maoist China staged a national holiday in his honor in 1959. Now, for reasons unexplained, the Democratic Party’s 2004 presidential nominee seeks to honor Du Bois too.
This should really come as no surprise to HE. McCarthy was the first to out the Demoscum as Communist sympathizers – that is to say, those Demoscum who weren’t Communists themselves.
And don’t even get me started on Venona.
Kerry’s efforts to honor Du Bois have been joined by fellow Bay State Democrat Ed Markey, who, along with more than three-dozen colleagues, has advanced a similar resolution in the House of Representatives. Both resolutions await floor votes.
This should come as no surprise to Denizens worth their salt, either. They don’t call it the “people’s republic of Massachusetts” for nothing, y’know.
Kerry correctly points out that Du Bois helped found the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. He omits noting that the NAACP kicked Du Bois out of the organization–twice.
Memo to the black community: This was the candidate of the party you supported in ’00 and ’04 by a margin of 9-1. Yet he – and they – sell you out on a regular basis, and have turned their backs on you time and again. Are you folks really that fond of the plantation?
After writing in 1920, “Absolutely segregate the races and sections of the world,” the author of The Souls of Black Folk boasted in 1933: “I fight Segregation with Segregation.” This infuriated the NAACP’s leadership, particularly when they learned of Southern segregationists’ quoting Du Bois to justify the denial of New Deal relief programs to African-Americans. In the late 1950s, Du Bois would separate himself from Martin Luther King just as he had earlier separated himself from other legitimate civil rights leaders. “I do not pretend to ‘love’ white people,” the NAACP founder declared in contrasting his position to King’s.
How does all this mesh with Kerry’s contention that Du Bois’s “legacy of courage can be seen each time our nation voices our beliefs in equality, in justice, and most of all, in hope of a better tomorrow and a better America”? It doesn’t.
Gee, you’d think Qerry would want to lay low for a while after having his qetchup-ass handed to him by President Bush. My only guess is that he saw what happened to Mike “The Loser” Dukakis after W’s father cleaned his clock in ’88, and wants to avoid the same fate.
Anyway, go read the whole Human Events article.
