The Democrat Left has reared its ugly racist and bigoted head once again. Hypocrites that they are, they will be given a pass by the drive by state run media, unlike Paula Deen’s fate this past weekend.
A Democratic lawmaker from the Peoples’ Republic of MN criticized Tuesday’s US Supreme Court decision on the Voting Rights Act by calling Justice Clarence Thomas “Uncle Thomas,” then saying he didn’t know “Uncle Tom” was a racist epithet.
On his Twitter account Tuesday, state Rep Ryan Winkler, a Democrat, called the justices’ 5-4 ruling striking down a part of the law “racist”, and the work of “four accomplices to race discrimination and one Uncle Thomas.” Justice Thomas, who is black, was one of the five justices in the majority. Isn’t he the the kettle calling the pot “black”? Oops! Pun intended!
That tweet was quickly deleted, and Winkler, who is a whitey unrelated to the Fonz and represents some upper middle class suburbs west-southwest of Minneapolis, offered a milquetoast, mealy mouth conditional-tense quasi-apology in subsequent tweets.
What? No grovelling like Paula Deen who is an out of shape old white lady from the South?
