I’d really prefer to ignore this race-baiting punk, but Toure’s toxic racialist poison is disseminated on a daily basis at MSNBC. He must be dealt with.
The following is very hard to watch, knowing that the nonsensical garbage he spews is taken seriously by most of the confused drones who watch MSNBC.
This has been in the news, so you may have already seen it: Touré: Ben Carson Is The GOP’s ‘Black Friend,’ Enjoying GOP’s ‘Affirmative Action:
Okay, let’s unpack this one racialist smear at a time.
“The demand for black friends continues because some people need them to make themselves feel not racist.” (???!!!)
For the sake of clarity, let’s rephrase this obnoxious, wholly unsupported and frankly idiotic assumption: “Racist Republicans need a few token “black friends” to prove that they are not racist, but they obviously are, because I said so.” Of course, the entire MSNBC prime time line up in 2012 operated under the assumption that anyone who opposes Barack Obama’s agenda is ipso facto racist. Race-baiting is second nature to this crowd.
Is it stupid? Yes indeed it is stupid and shallow to accuse people you don’t know of something as terrible as racism because they have strong, ideological differences with a black president and leftism as a whole. But the M/O of liberal fascists like Toure is to try to smear and marginalize those who disagree with their left-wing agenda. They know the drones lap it up because it makes them feel superior. What will it take to wake them up?
Toure confesses that he doesn’t feel like the GOP “cares” about him because they try to suppress his vote. “I’m kinda big on that,” he notes without offering any examples of the GOP trying to suppress his vote. One can only assume he means GOP support for voter integrity laws that are designed to reduce fraud, (which 2012 proved continues to be a huge problem.) Toure thinks that being asked to show an I.D. at the polls, (something 75% of Americans agree with) = raaaaacism. Could that be another stupid, obnoxious and wholly unsupported assumption? Why yes, it could. He goes on to say that Republicans should quit trying to kill the voter rights act, (which btw, Republicans voted for by greater percentages than Democrats in 1965.) His proof for this is not stated but he may be referring to a House Republican opposition to renewing the VRA in 2006 over provisions that require bilingual ballots in many places and continued federal oversight of voting practices in Southern states.
He may also be referring to a case before the Supreme Court, Alabama v. Holder, which questions “the constitutionality, applicability and relevance of Section 5 of that law” which requires state governments with a history of discrimination to get approval of the Justice Department before they alter their election laws. Whatever your position is on the constitutionality of Section 5 – to call Alabama’s opposition to it nothing short of racism, is intellectually bankrupt, but to be expected coming from intellectually bankrupt race-baiters like Toure.
Citing no examples or evidence, he also said Republicans want to kill affirmative Action. I have no idea what Republicans have done recently to “kill Affirmative Action”, but I wish they would. Most Republicans - black and white alike – believe that discrimination is wrong, but preferential treatment for some groups is wrong, too. Toure may disagree with that position – but again – disagreeing with Toure on a political issue involving race doesn’t constitute racism..
In that same barrage of inanities, he also accused Republicans of calling him a “taker and a lazy person”, obviously in reference to Mitt Romney’s formulation that 47% of voters pay no income tax. This, Toure seems to view as an attack on blacks, even though the overwhelming majority of non-taxpayers are students and the elderly.
I will call Toure a “lazy person” because his ideas are intellectually lazy. He makes sweeping generalizations that don’t pan out under any kind of scrutiny. His entire argument seems to be, if you oppose his coveted left-wing positions, you are trying to “screw over” blacks. “Enter Dr. Ben Carson” whose message to blacks is the exact opposite. He eschews this morally bankrupt culture of victimization. But because the left can’t allow blacks to hear his message of real hope and empowerment, he must be personally discredited. He must be ridiculed and called Republicans’ “special friend” or an “Uncle Tom”.
Dr. Carson’s response to all this on Megyn Kelly’s show, yesterday:
“If you look a certain way, then you have to stay on the plantation”, Carson said. “I’ve heard some people refer to me as an Uncle Tom. Well, obviously, they don’t know what an Uncle Tom is…..he was a very very subservient, go along to get along person. Obviously, that’s not what I’m doing.”
He was even more pointed on Hannity, last night, calling Toure a “liar” and people like him “superficial thinkers” who call people names because they “don’t have anything worthwhile to talk about”.
The pediatric neurosurgeon told Sean, “Well first of all the individual who was just speaking completely has his facts incorrect. Some people refuse to say the word, but I’ll say it. He’s lying… I think when people don’t have anything worthwhile to talk about, and they can’t attack you on your character then they start calling you names. This is a trick we learned back in the third grade… Everything for them is about race. I like to say the reason I don’t talk about race that often is because I’m a neurosurgeon. And I look at the thing that actually makes the person who they are. It’s not the cover. But for them the cover is everything. because they’re very superficial thinkers.”
A man who speaks that much truth and common sense is a mortal enemy to the left.
Ace of Spades HQ: Dr. Ben Carson Diagnoses Toure As “Unintelligent”
Toure, whose area of expertise is Being Black, attacked Ben Carson as an Uncle Tom, someone who exists just to “assuage white people’s guilt” about being racist. Incidentally, this is exactly what he said about Herman Cain, too. So, in addition to saying stupid things, he also recycles all of his stupid things. He is uncreative in his stupidities.
