Harry Reid: No Decency Required:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) vowed on Tuesday to take action this month to try to combat the recent “Hobby Lobby” ruling from the Supreme Court. In his remarks, he referred to the decision and decried the “five white men” who rendered it. “The one thing we are going to do during this work period, sooner rather than later, is to ensure that women’s lives are not determined by virtue of five white men,” Reid said.
It goes without saying that Harry Reid is a despicable human being and an arrogant, divisive and reprehensible politician. The Senate majority leader reached a new personal low recently with his racist attack on a sitting Supreme Court Justice, Clarence Thomas.
Make no mistake about it, this was as personal, vicious and ugly an attack as I have ever seen in politics, but as of this writing no major news outlet has demanded his apology. When you’re a liberal Democrat, there is no bridge too far when it comes to racist, sexist, dehumanizing, divisive or polarizing rhetoric. Reid’s adept at using all forms to denigrate his personal and political foes, and it’s not the first time he’s made racist remarks and got away with it.
This attack on Clarence Thomas is especially disturbing for a few reasons. Racially, it’s incendiary because it attacks Justice Thomas on a fundamentally human level. By referring to Justice Thomas as “a white man,” Senator Reid is denying Justice Thomas his God-given racial identity. Senator Reid’s hateful comments are designed to belittle Justice Thomas in the community by segregating him out of his ethnic group and superimposing him into another – pretty twisted.
Remember, Senator Reid did this to engender animosity against Thomas because he disagreed with Justice Thomas’ legal opinion (an opinion four other Justices agreed with). Why did Senator Reid single out Clarence Thomas for such uncivil vitriol? Why didn’t he just call him an “Uncle Tom,” since we all know that’s what Senator Reid was really implying? His intent is disturbingly transparent.
The demented Senator’s entire attack on Clarence Thomas was based on a flawed and illogical conclusion: male Justices have no right to rule on an issue that affects women primarily. That argument is flat out wrong, simply because there are two sides to every case. In this one, the court protected the business owner’s rights to offer birth control in their health plans that are in line with their religious beliefs.
Women working for Hobby Lobby are FREE to take their services elsewhere, use the birth control covered by their health plan or pay for birth control not covered by the plan if they choose.
That simply wasn’t good enough for the despicable Senator Reid and the radical feminist left. They implied that only women can understand the issue and tried to de-legitimize the male justice’s decision based on their sex. How progressive. Does that mean female Justices can’t rule on MILITARY issues if they never been in the service? Of course not.
Liberal women are notorious for their social engineering. The military is a favorite target of those who have never worn a uniform. Their lack of experience or understanding has NEVER stood in their way, and their tactic is nothing but a Red Herring.
WHERE’S THE OUTRAGE?
Even more troubling is the way in which Senator Reid has been allowed to get away with this attack. When Congressman Joe Wilson called out President Obama for lying in the face of the American people, or when Supreme Court Justice Alito mouthed the words “not true” as President Obama again lied to the American people, the main stream liberal media (and some RINO Republicans) were almost brought to tears; the coverage was epic and non stop. Yet they are curiously silent on this disgusting, racial attack.
I’m asking- where are the defenders of Justice Clarence Thomas? Where are the Republicans like that sis bag Lindsey Graham, where’s Rand Paul, where’s that sniveling wuss John Boehner? Why aren’t they demanding Harry Reid’s ouster as Senate Majority leader? Eric Holder would be INVESTIGATING any Conservative who made remarks anywhere close to these and I, for one, have had enough.
“Senator Harry Reid needs to resign as Senate Majority leader.” Let the firestorm begin.
