The Girl Who Cried Racism
Now that the race card has been played, it's a newsworthy story at the HuffPo.
But the real Queen of the Racecard is Cynthia McKinney, The Girl Who Cried Racism.
McKinney, 51, scuffled with a police officer on March 29 when she entered a House office building without her identifying lapel pin and
did not stop when asked.
Several Capitol police officials have said the officer involved
asked McKinney three times to stop.
When she did not, he placed a hand on her and she hit him, they said. McKinney believes that law and procedures don't apply to the ruling elite. She ASSAULTS an officer and then turns right around and accuses the officer (who is just doing his job) of assaulting her because he is a racist and she is black. How asinine is that?
Her lawyer, James W. Myart Jr., said, "Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, like thousands of average Americans across this country, is, too, a victim of the excessive use of force by law enforcement officials because of how she looks and the color of her skin."
"Ms. McKinney is just a victim of being in Congress while black," Myart said. "Congresswoman McKinney will be exonerated."Okay....Cynthia McKinney might be a race baiting fool, but the real chumps here are the retarded voters of the 4 Congressional District of Georgia. I can't imagine that Harry Belafonte standing by her side during this latest press conference charade (where she refused to answer any questions) is helping her.
Cynthia has always been a conspiratorial windbag. In 2002 she asserted that Bush knew that an attack would occur on 9-11 and "let those innocent people be murdered".
When she said in 1996 that "we need to get the government out of the drug business," she was not talking about a possible prescription drug benefit, she was speaking of the CIA inventing crack.
In her 1996 congressional campaign, she called supporters of her Republican opponent "holdovers from the Civil War days" and "a ragtag group of neo-Confederates." Her opponent was Jewish.
In August 1993, during her first term in office, a Capitol Hill police officer tried to prevent her from bypassing a metal detector, as members of Congress are allowed to do. For years afterward, The Hill reports, the Capitol Police pinned a picture of McKinney to an office wall, warning officers to learn her face because she refuses to wear her member's pin.
During the 2000 presidential campaign, she claimed that "Gore's Negro tolerance level has never been too high. I've never known him to have more than one black person around him at any given time." Never mind that Gore's campaign manager was black.
After the majority-black district that first elected her to Congress was struck down by the Supreme Court as unconstitutionally gerrymandered, she denouced the court as racist. She compared the verdict to Dred Scott, the decision that declared slaves were nothing more than chattel, and Plessy v. Ferguson, which legitimized separate-but-equal American apartheid. (Never mind that she was re-elected in a white majority district two years later.)
It would appear that her tinfoil hat is not stopping the radio transmissions in her head. But this time, she may have cried racism one too many times. I anxiously await the release of the security videotape.
And ask yourself this: What do you think the reaction from the Democrats and the media would be if this had been a white congressman striking a black police officer?
