So, Colin Powell proved today he’s a racist…by endorsing a candidate for president just because of that person’s skin color.
Powell backed Obama in 2008, but prior to today he could have just claimed he was caught up in all that hysteria of “The Hopeychange Fad” that swept the nation four years ago and rendered even adult males like him nothing more than pre-teen girls squealing with hormonal delight at a New Kids on the Block concert while clutching their Cabbage Patch Kids and Beanie Babies for dear life (because they will be worth so much to collectors some day!).
Powell said in his 2012 endorsement that he backs Obama because Bathhouse Barry “didn’t get us into any new wars recently”, but that completely forgets about the overthrow of Quadaffi in Libya and what’s happening in Syria now as well.
Then, Powell went on to say that Obama should remain president because, uh, well, uhhm, er…”there hasn’t been a terrorist attack or anything lately, I guess”. Which, of course, completely forgets about the rape and murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and the other deaths at our consulate in Benghazi.
Colin Powell is the buffoon — if you remember — who went to the UN In 2003 with cartoon, coloring book drawings of futuristic, transformable trucks that could morph into battle labs, rocket launchers, and other things that Michael Bay would later incorporate into his blockbuster Transformers movies. I’m a child of the 80s and had all the Decepticons and Autobots too…and evidently Powell was playing with the same toys I was back in the day (though he never stopped, it seems).
Ed Morrissey at HotAir thinks the reason Powell behaves this way is because he’s still smarting that he ruined his reputation and humiliated himself with that UN performance (which really did make him a laughing stock)…so to get back at the GOP he does things like this. I like Morrissey but disagree with him here because I think he’s purposefully not stating the obvious: which is that Colin Powell is a racist.
In the last four years, we’ve seen that black people can be the most racist in the country for supporting Obama just because his skin is similar in color to their own. Colin Powell is one of these people who carry around Sherwin Williams swatches and support candidates who are “chocolate”, “cocoa”, “caramel”, or “fudge” tinted only. If someone’s “eggshell”, “French vanilla”, “buttercream”, or “snowbank”, then Colin Powell won’t support that person.
That’s called racism.
Which makes Colin Powell a racist.
What an absolute buffoon this man is; it’s hilarious to me that he gave up the chance to be the first black President when he could have run in 1996 and he probably would have beaten Bill Clinton because black Democrats would have indeed crossed the aisle and voted for him out of race-pride. I think Powell will always resent his timidity and decision not to enter that race; to this day he blames his wife Alma, saying she and his children urged him not to run for President because he just couldn’t handle the job and wouldn’t do well in a campaign. I think little baby Colin was just too afraid of embarrassing himself in a national campaign and didn’t want to risk doing anything to make himself a laughingstock…like what he did at the UN seven years later.
There’s this thing that happens in our culture where just because someone served in the military we feel a duty to handle that person with kid gloves forever, but I think some people really cross the line and lose that consideration. John McCain is one of them, because he’s been trading off his former military service for years and has gotten away with doing a lot of damage to the country under the guise of “being a maverick” because he’s immune to criticism because he once wore a uniform. Colin Powell is treated much the same way, and is allowed to be a virulent racist in broad daylight without anyone calling him out on it because he was in the military for the first part of his career.
Well, both McCain and Powell are in politics now and while I respect their past service in the military I think both of them are disgusting human beings on many levels currently. Both of them need to retire from public life and head off somewhere to do their own thing privately. I wish them well, but I am tired of both of their antics.
