Has Perry himself actually used the racial epithet that was once painted on the rock — you know, like the late former KKK leader Robert Byrd did as recently as 2001 when he referred to “white n–gers”?
Did Perry condescendingly refer to a black politician as “articulate and bright and clean” like Joe Biden did when he described Barack Obama in 2007?
Did Perry racially stereotype Hispanics for political gain or refer offensively to President Obama’s “light skin” and “lack of a Negro dialect” like Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid did just last year?
What does it all say about Rick Perry? Nothing. Nada. Zip.
While the Post cites unnamed minority pols decrying Perry’s right-wing “racially tinged rhetoric,” this is the guy who has indulged in left-wing impulses and disparaged his own base as racist in two separate GOP debates. First, he shamelessly suggested that opponents of in-state tuition discounts for illegal aliens were xenophobes who didn’t like the sound of foreign last names. Then, he told them they were haters who lacked compassion: “I don’t think you have a heart.”
That sounds a lot like the very suggestion the Macaca Media is leveling against him.
It stinks to be falsely accused of racism. Maybe Perry, now under siege by the ruthless race card-playing media, will remember that the next time he’s tempted to accuse conservatives who disagree with him of heartless bigotry.
