A racist is one who favors a member of his own racial or ethnic group, even though they are members of opposing political parties and, therefore, presumably do not share the same political worldview, values, beliefs, and policy prescriptions.
And that is exactly what former Secretary of State Colin Powell is.
Colin Powell claims to be a Republican, but he voted for Obama, a Democrat, in 2008 and will vote again for Obama, a Democrat, in 2012. This morning on “CBS This Morning,” Powell joined Venezuela dictator Hugo Chavez, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro’s daughter, and Russian president Vladimir Putin in endorsing Obama.
I will not insult FOTM’s readers by posting Powell’s blabber about his reasons for voting to reelect Obama (you can read them here), because you and I know as certain as we know the sun will rise tomorrow that those are just Powell’s cosmetic rationalizations (or what the Soviet Union called “disinformation”, Muslims call “taqiyya“, and us common people call just plain LIES). You and I both know that the reason Colin Powell voted for Obama in 2008 and will vote again for Obama next month is because Obama is (half) black.
For that matter, I believe that Colin Powell is a Republican because being one is (has been) good for his career’s upward mobility. Black Democrats are a dime a dozen, but a black Republican is a rare creature indeed, and the Republican Party will bend over backwards to advance the career of a black Republican.
Colin Powell has no loyalty toward the Republican Party. By supporting the (half) black Barack Obama, who has done more to destroy this country than any American president, Colin Powell demonstrates he does not love America.
To borrow an expression from FOTM’s Hardnox: “If Colin Powell were on fire I would not stop to pee on him.”
