Democrats only like minorities when minorities think like Democrats. So much for the diversity party.
In South Carolina:
The latest insensitive and arguably racist public utterance coming from the supposed party of tolerance and compassion comes from a Democrat in South Carolina. But not just any Democrat. This one is Dick Harpootlian, the Chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party. Harpootlian has a history of making outrageously offensive public remarks about South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, yet he remained as party chairman until (according to Politico) his term ended on Saturday.
Mediaite, Politico, and almost no one else in the establishment press has reported that Harpootlian, speaking at a Jefferson-Jackson dinner Friday night just before Vice President Joe Biden appeared, said while introducing South Carolina gubernatorial candidate Vincent Sheheen (as carried at Mediaite; HT Instapundit): “In about 18 months from now,” he said, “hopefully he’ll have sent Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.”
Guess you have to be the right kind of minority to be accepted by Democrats. Just ask former Governor Bill Richardson. When asked about Senator Ted Cruz, he said,
“He’s anti-immigration. Almost every Hispanic in the country wants to see immigration reform,” Richardson said. “No, I don’t think he should be defined as a Hispanic. He’s a politician from Texas.”
