Today’s Lesson In Progressive Politics: Touré Outre

Fresh from the cesspools at MSNBC, the political commentator/author/critic Touré emerges with one of his trademark race-baiting comments. Touré, who only goes by his first name à la Cher, Madonna, and Hillary!, has long been notorious in political geek circles as an advocate for the hard Left and a champion at taking the most innocuous comments and feeding them into the race mill.

On The Cycle, the MSNBC show that in no way whatsoever is based on Fox News’s extremely successful show The Five, Touré made the following comment about Mitt Romney’s campaign against Barack Obama:

I know it’s a heavy thing, I don’t say it lightly, but this is ‘niggerization’. You are not one of us, you are like the scary black man who we’ve been trained to fear.

The first thing one notices is that Touré does say this lightly. He’s clearly been planning on dropping this bomb for awhile. But that’s beside the point.

The point is that this is very typical of the Left. Barack Obama is a black man, so any criticism of him is rooted in his skin color. It couldn’t possibly be the policies that the man espouses, and the programs he has put into law. It couldn’t be based on mounting debt, high unemployment, decreasing household income. No, for the Left, it’s always about identity politics. Because it’s Barack Obama, it’s racism. If the President was Hillary! it would be sexism. The Left does not see people as individuals, it sees groups of voting blocs. The black vote, the female vote, the gay vote.

The tendency of the Left to see people as groups and not individuals stems from a world view where everything is centralized, starting with the government. The Left wing conception of government is as a group of enlightened people who tell the other groups what to do and how to act. The people, for them, are just smaller, but equally centralized groups. It is a hive mind in action and it sees only other hives. It is the way shepherds view their sheep. At it’s heart, it is anti-human.

Any response I could come up with to Touré’s insipid and revolting comment would pale in comparison to this beautiful, powerful, and poignant response from Kira Davis.
